[wheybags][0.17.4] crash on 'spawn_attack_wave' in tutorial

Post by Chicking »

  • What did you do?
    I tried to block biter spawnpoint with walls and furnaces.
  • What happened?
    The scenario crashed:

    Code: Select all

    Error while running event level::on_tick (ID 0)
    position not specified.
    stack traceback:

  • What did you expect to happen instead?
    I thought biters would either spawn in the closest free tile (and I wanted to force an army of biters to spawn on the unreachable cliffs), or not spawn at all.
Steps to reproduce:
Load the attached savefile, wait 3 seconds, crash.

I can't help but feel this is a bit of a "stop hitting yourself" kind of situation, but regardless...
fixed for the next version :p

Had similar thing happen to me on the demo version. Though I got a different error message. Oh and I pretty much built a great wall to direct the spawning in a certain location or to not spawn at all and it crashed. This bug/crash happened on the recent demo download version - 0.17.79 (demo, stable).

Code: Select all

The scenario level caused a non-recoverable error.
Please report this error to the scenario author.
