IWBUMS 38.6 RELEASED
3 3

33 posts in this topic

May have forgotten version number, who knows. Too late to change now. Will reupload later.

 

  • Fixed new custom map loader not overriding vanilla cells.
  • Map updated to include room defs on flat roof/canopy squares to eliminate ugy blacked out overhangs in new rendering system
  • Removed deprecated tile culling code -- this was removing anything that tried to render between the player and the camera in a small radius around the player. This was a catch all for overhangs and canopies that should all now be hidden more cleanly.
  • Improved the logic that hides the upper levels of buildings when player is not indoors (no room def in the square) and the building might obscure our view of them -- should hide the building when you're behind it but also when you're under a canopy the belongs to it
  • Fixed blood splatters rendering on hidden upper floors of buildings
  • Player-built walls should become transparent just like pre-built ones do when they are obscuring play
  • Player-built floors should become hidden just like pre-built ones
  • Improved visibility when peeking through windows. Walls should become transparent to fully reveal rooms.
  • Improved "window peeking" to include doors with glass.
  • Peeking through doors and windows should be blocked by blinds and curtains
  • CTRL key no longer gets trapped by the inventory and fails to work in combat
  • Items that can't be made frozen by freezers would often be spawned ‘frozen’ in freezers, and then would never melt. Unfreezable items no longer spawn frozen in freezers.
  • Salmon no longer shows nutritional information without the nutritionist trait.
  • Crafting recipes using logs now give XP for carpentry – just as with planks. A notched plank created using a log, for example, now gives XP – just as it would with a plank.
  • Rice can now be transferred to bowls – previously cooked rice wouldn't let you transfer without adding another ingredient.
  • Fixed reading books not ending when last page was read.
  • Turning oven on or off from oven setting panel is now synced with inventory bar.
  • Several missing movable items are now movable. Thanks Svarog.
  • Many general Map bugs fixed.
  • MP: Server Saving message now appears as a central Spiffo image notification.

Something that we need is MP bug hunting for the building rendering changes (visual oddities rather than anything else) so if people spin up a new server then please let us know if you see anything weird.

 

KNOWN ISSUE: A weird one in which the north-westernmost roof square of a building stays hidden after the other squares reappear for some reason. Shouldn't be too hard to fix - will be sorted in the next build.

 

Thanks to Woofikus Loopikus for the image.

Screenshot should be self explanatory.

Edit: Above is related to below, I don't need to be looking in to get this effect, just standing under the canopy results in this.

I'm still not really happy with those slanty bits (seen in Svarog's post above the player) never disappearing, especially when I'm up on the second floor of a house and they're everywhere (depending on how the roof is built).

great job guys :D

 

some little things I wanted to mention:

 

1) when you are running against a house wall - you get a clipping bug with the wall files even if you are not running anymore but walking along the wall (picture)

 

 

 


5988f2f15e406_PZ-wallbug01.png.543a3f654721812be9540448f5a9303c.png

 

 

2) in the picture there are most of the roof files missing (not sure that is wat)

 

3) if you look through a window, you have to stand nearly right in front of the window.. shouldn't you be able to look into a house through a window without curtain at least a little bit?

 

Edit:

4) other roof-tiles are missing also sometimes

 

 

 


PZ - roof bug 02.jpg

 

 

5) also you can see single white pixels sometimes.. which is irritating sometimes

 

6) also roof bug which is irritating:

 

 

 


PZ - roof bug 03.jpg

 

 

 

 

7) were you be able to drink nonstop for hours before? I THOUGHT you could only drink if you were a little bit thirsty? Could drink from sink for hours again and again...

Can you fix mine too? :D (2tiles behind my character)
There used to be a toilet here.
My base is at the construction site, north east of West point.

But are fences supposed to show up?

I don't know that area of the map too well.

 

Is it a player-constructed toilet, or on the existing map?

How many tiles did it occupy?

Can you walk through where it used to be? Is it invisible, or just gone?

And yes, i can walk through it. It seems to light up a little when i look at it's direction, but it's still darker than normal.

Okay cool - maybe ChrisW's system doesn't like one-tile 'buildings' too much. Good catch!

I've had this spot for a while actually, i thought the bug was too rare to mention.
I don't think it has anything to do with ChrisW's system.

Ah okay, well then maybe it's a Mash thing. It's a good thing to notice in any case.

 

A man needs his toilets.

Oh, no i actually destroyed the toilet myself.
The black spot is just a leftover i cant get rid of.
I should add that i did not forget to also remove the toilet's ''rooftop''

@Batsphinx

What Patrick H is describing is actually fairly easy to reproduce with every single building in the game. Just destroy it and what will be left is a bunch of visibility issues because of the way the game handles whether or not a "room" is visible.

In most buildings you can enter the kitchen and every other room blacks out if you're not looking at it. Having an entire building, all of it's walls destroyed and looking at it from outside is problematic.

The video should show what I mean, I have the debug stuff on the left so you can see how the room def changes and what effect it has on visibility of surrounding world.

Good find. I didn't look at it that way.

So (from what i see), it's tied to tile definition and can't be altered in any way (but code) ?

I tried to change the room definition in that area in-game via lua so it's all identified as outside but it never stuck or made an effect really so probably yeah.

there is also something "strange" in this picture:

 

 

PZ -bug 04.jpg

 

 

 

 

the one part is totally blacked out even if you could "see" it at least in parts from the positition but the part behind the player is not blacked out at all even if THIS place couldn't be seen at all... 

guess the blacked out part is not working as it should



PZ -bug 05.jpg

 

also, with the 2nd picture the room wall is getting transparent way to late to work right (but that is a minor one)

The first one ties into what I posted above, it's pretty much exactly that.

The second one I can confirm, sometimes objects in corners are not visible if they're surrounded by other objects or at least they're visibly a lot darker. I assume that's because technically the player's view of the tile is blocked from all sides by objects on adjacent objects.

Hey Patrick, could I get a better description of what's happening here? Maybe a daylight shot too if you're playing?

 

You're inside the house, but external attached walls are still visible?

Looks like he's standing on the ground floor but the fences that are one floor above don't disappear along with the rest of objects on higher floors.

Possibly because if I recall correctly, those fences are "outside" the building as far as the grid square they're placed on is concerned. I think technically they're not connected to the floor on upper level Instead they're on a separate tile which doesn't have any floor for the game to register and make invisible with everything on it.

I hope this makes sense... It did in my head and then I read it and I'm not sure anymore.

Edit: The Fences on the north part of the second floor do disappear and that is what got me thinking about the "Fence not becoming invisible due to not having floor on the same tile"

Edit 2: Screenshot, highlight shows every object on the tile. In his base the fences on Z=1 that don't disappear exist on tiles that have no floor.

The legs of my character are blocked by the fences i'm talking about.
Svarog described it perfectly.
