[0.16.1] Artillery destroying rocks leaves items on ground.

Post by xenoxaos »

I'm playing on the Linux build 0.16.1, Today while playing with the artillery turret, I noticed that when destroying rocks, it leaves the stone items on the ground. Walking over it without holding F adds the items to your inventory. Attached a video as well as youtube link. Not a big deal, but thought I'd let you know.

Thanks!

Pretty sure that's working as intended... same thing happens when you run the rocks over with a car or shoot them with any other weapon...

Alright, I see that it's not just the artillery creating the items on the ground (I just shot a rock to death). but walking over them picks the items up w/o holding F. So you can't leave them while walking over them.

That behaviour has been around a while. I'm pretty sure it's deliberate. It was useful when you were able to pick up alien artifacts by justs walking over them.

The bug is that it's inconsistent (yes, that's a bug): some of those rocks do drop items (stone/coal) other don't.

I'd prefer they all (including trees) drop stuff on the ground that the bot can't carry (and if hit, drop *some* on the ground, because, well, artillery). I never truly like the fact that a bot can carry four pieces of wood when it mined a tree, even when it can only carry one wood from a chest to another chest (pre-capacity research).
