Server restart between destroying the milling machine and building the new one? If so, that sounds kinda weird.

With the now new irregular server restarts. Due to the newly adopted irregular patching schedule. It stands to reason the potential impact of this feature has increased a bit.

So what is the status of this awkward "no you can't do that, until the game-server is restarted" feature.
- Still unreprocuceble (by dev's).
- ... Other.

Guess this topic/conversation is on the dev's ignore list.

Wonder if they (still) know that Archery Tower's have a similar thing going for them (last time I checked it).

That's at least an intended feature for them, though.

May look at the mill-thing.

Not trivially reproducable. Any insight on the exact conditions for this are welcome.

You mean having to wait for a server restart to be able to re-build Archery Tower's after the previous one's decayed away (including the rubble) is a intended feature.
Get out of here. :o


I guess this Archery Tower Critique post is not ringing any bells.

Seemed pretty reproducible on the general users side to me.
I at least have not seen any user comment's referring to the fact that they could not reproduce it. (Granted. Only one in a hundred would probably do so. ... and I would need to see it too.)

Alternative idea.
It might help others better to figure out what your doing wrong if you showed how you tried to reproduce it. (it would just be a short alternative twitch session on your end I figure.)

O yea, almost forgot. There is a third case where a server restart plays a role. (looking for it ...)
Here you go. (different reason no doubt, but still ...)

While we wait for a reply from the dev in question. ... "Potential reply" that is, of course.

Anyone likes to volunteer to sacrifice some resources to see what happens if one follows the following walk-though ? ... and adding some additional data to it.

At 30 Apr 2017 2d0x wrote:1. I built the mill.
2. Dug up the basement.
3. I built a milling machine.
4. I tried to put a second mill machine next to it for comparison - an error.
5. I used a mill machine. (please do this too)
6. Removed the first unsuccessful milling machine.
7. Now I have a permanent error. (replace with your result of course).

Missing data:
- Ground - Paved or Not paved. (assuming paved in about case) - Probably irrelevant.
- Building floor level where the first mill was build. Probably irrelevant too ... , O yea. PS: Lets stick to the American floor-naming system here, to circumference any potential floor naming mishaps. IE: -1(basement), 0(first floor), 1(second floor), 2(third floor).

+ Did you use any god-like dev-shortcuts while following that walk-trough ? ... O wait, wrong person to ask that.

... Are we there yet ...
