ah yes thanks kwalya, this is more to do with @Talreevis bug, though the 1st post bug is bad indeed
can i check what version number is the actual 12th October 2018 patch? is it this?
i updated my steam game around midnight and took a screenshot of the version, and didnt encounter this Thrall wheel bug at all. (in fact, i was really pleasantly surprised at just how smoothly the update went to this from version #106947/19410, for my 77th savegame and about 48mods)
exsting Apiaries kept slowly making honey (but also accepted new worker bees i found)
and existing Fish / Shellfish traps mostly needed insects, which is actually what i started putting in when first tried the game before, but now i found that the Large Bug insect, actually gives you a chance of getting Exotic Fish
(i couldnt find any feats for pets and animal pen though)
