Thrall disappears when KO'd

Game mode: All
Type of issue: Bug

Thralls go wholly or partly invisible when knocked out on Siptah. Haven’t verified whether it’s present in the main game. Given their relative scarcity this can be very problematic.

Example of “partly invisible” below:

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:

  1. Knock out a Thrall
  2. Parts of it go invisible
  3. I think it went invisible bit by bit (first the torso, then the feet in the image above) but I’m not 100% sure of that
  4. Thrall is “still there” even if wholly invisible, and can be detected by holding the rope. Assuming you remember where they fell, and that they didn’t roll.

(image is from singleplayer but it happens on Online official too. No mods in either case).

Thralls going undermesh has been a huge issue in the game since forever. The “fix” is to walk away from the area for a minute, and then come back. When you return, they will typically be back on the surface like they are supposed to be.

I keep hoping that one day the developer will put effort into fixing old bugs instead of writing new DLC, but I suppose one makes money and the other doesn’t.

Yeah, but this isn’t the same thing. They don’t go “undermesh” (though that also happens), parts of their geometry goes invisible - see the screenshot! Which, I guess isn’t that clear really, but the lady in question is actually faceup - we’re seeing the “inside” of her hair because her head/torso has gone invislbe (and her feet, too).

That one’s not new to me either - had it going on from time to time pretty much since I started playing - always kinda assumed it’s because my machine’s not really up to the job… The version I get seems to vary based on proximity - if I’m standing a couple of metres away they generally look fine, but when I get closer the body/face turns invisible, but clothes/hair etc remains. Very much the same effect as the old glitch in the intro movie where the character turns invisible when drinking from the waterskin Conan just threw them. Funnily enough, I don’t think I’ve seen this glitch at all since the Siptah update - somehow they’ve removed it from my game and added it to yours…

Not the case for mine. While it’s certainly not high end, it’s fairly new - built it in 2020 - and I generally have no issues with framerates etc.

Hah! Bugs sometimes do seem to take on almost human qualities don’t they?
