Random building pieces showing that they are damaged but pieces next to them are alright. No purge activity. Some of the areas HAD been checked after a purge and were not damaged… but suddenly are. Some pieces not accessible from the ground but show damage.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
No useful information can be given to reliably reproduce this.
I can only suggest:

  1. Build large bases with a variety of building pieces on a persistent multiplayer server.
  2. Over multiple days and server restarts…run around with a repair hammer on your property looking for the repair hammer icon until you find random building pieces with damage for no apparent cause.

See attached screenshots to make more clear what I mean:

Insulated wooden foundation on top of rock not approachable by the ground. To repair I had to put a sandstone ceiling tile down to stand close to it:

Two reinforced stonebrick walls (on outside of reinforced stonebrick foundations) one foundation height off the ground showing damage … but the wall between and to either side not damaged … the walls below them not damaged… the crenulated walls above them not damaged… (again to repair I had to build a platform to reach them.)

And on the same base I had dozens of random building pieces showing damage … crenulated fences, ceiling tiles, stairs … with no apparent reason for the damage.
Even if it was someone else’s purge that attacked my base by mistake …why and how could the damage be well above the ground and no damage on the ground level building pieces.

On two other bases I had random building pieces showing damage … again no notice of purge activity. Many of these damaged pieces had very minor damage Eg 9960 / 10 000 hit points.


Hey @Kwalya

Thanks for the feedback. We’ll send it to QA and see if they can reproduce similar cases of this happening.

Had this on privat servers to.
It’s irritating when the peaces are high up, and you need to climb to reach them to repair, and like you said, they’re damaged for no apparent reasons so far.
