Game Mode Official Testlive
The following problems have been observed:
Objects/buildings owned by a single person who is not a clan member still show up as “Unowned” to both the owning player and to all others (Click on object/building owned by a non-member to reproduce if such object displays ownership).
Workaround (by players): Player creates a “clan” consisting of themselves. Ownership is automatically updated to the clan name. I believe there was a bug patch concerning this but I’m not sure how it was pushed out or if it has at all.
Death markers not showing up (Intermittent issue. Difficult/impossible to identify the steps to reproduce). I suspect that this is happening because the player’s “body” has fallen through the map or similar malfunction. As a consequence the returned player cannot ever come into the display range of the corpse to trigger the marker generation.
Workaround (by the developers): Always show the player death markers at the point the player “died” and not at the location the body is supposed to be. Do not disable display of the markers based on the player distance from that point (always on). A more permanent solution is correcting the issues that cause the body to “disappear” in the first place.
Floating plants. Several areas. No steps to reproduce. Simple observation only. The plants in question don’t have a collision box active around them and aren’t subject to player interaction. Most notable in the central desert region where the birds are centered. No obvious workarounds other than making sure that every object spawns with gravity and any overlap avoidance setting prevents a vertical displacement.
Animals running away into the air. Fleeing animals seem to have the ability to fly! I suspect the same code is used from Epic’s Boy With Kite demo which has the same problem (I’m a senior developer with another independent producer using the same, though later version, game engine and I use that package to test performance of any build machine I put together). No known workaround. I guess the question can be asked on UDN but I’ve never gotten around to it.
