Dark trader
« on: August 13, 2018, 03:12:08 PM »
Hi!
I built two small ports and they have trouble when trader arrives.
When he has docked the boat, the boat turns all dark blue.  ???

Has anyone experienced this and have a solution to it?

I had this happening to me too.
Luckily not many times.
It seems that even in Vanilla it can happen.
No solution yet and I think it is a base game issue what only Luke can fix.

Is it map related?   North-south vs. east-west?

Don't know.
I had it happen to me only 2 or 3 times. It looks like the textures are going wonky.
I tried redoing the boat dummies as I thought maybe they where to close to the dock and then the boat stayed good but some later another boat the same happened.

In my case the boat was coming from North to south and the TP was on the left side.
I waited for another boat and just before docking did a save.
The boat docked fine. I reloaded the save and the glitch came back.

On the forum I read it sometimes can happen in Vanilla too so not directly Mod related and I left it for what it is.

I think it is a glitch with the boat mesh and on some maps it glitches and others not and we not have access to the boat mesh so Luke has to fix it but I won't hold my breath he ever will :)

 ;D okay, this is strange. Two trading posts in question built on east (right) side of river that runs from the north down to south.  Boats come down river and have to go a little sideways to dock- glitch occurs until boat moves away to leave - both trading posts , every time.

I do test map - same mods etc. just different map seed.  River again north south but a bit of an angle.  I build Tiny trading post (had previous problem) and the 2 trading post in question on both sides of the river.  No glitch at any of the 6 trading posts.  So I go back to other map thinking I will try rebuilding the two trading posts and if still glitched I would try the other side of the river, but before I begin here comes a riverboat and it pull up to trading post without the glitch.  :o  ;D

Weird. I will keep my eye on them  :)

It looks like on some maps it glitches and on other maps it don't.
Whatever it is we cannot fix it as the boat code and meshes are hidden from us.
I redid my dummies many times to test but the glitch stayed. Another map with same TP and no problems at all so i ruled the dummies out.
