Bug report #858 - alien not draw on battlescape
« on: January 02, 2015, 03:20:31 pm »
Sorry for posting the attachment here, like a scrub I opened the defect as a guest and now I cant do anything with it.

Anyway, not a serious calamity, as defects go, but I thought you would like to know.

Here is the save (saved immediately after the sectoid became visible). I had just killed an alien at the window and had knocked down 3 wall tiles doing so.

I'm thinking that the game probably did the right thing.

Let's say the soldier I had selected could not see the second alien. But he kills the first alien and opens up the wall. A different soldier, say, on the ramp, CAN now see the second alien. The game pops the glowing "1" but does not draw the alien because I am viewing from the perspective of the first soldier. When I toggle to the second soldier, the alien is drawn.

does this more or less represent the situation before firing? can you please put all the soldiers in the right places if not?

That looks like it.

I am currently running git 2015-01-02. I could not get the behavior I thought I saw so I put 2014-11-29 back and same thing. Let's close this and generously call it "unreproducible". It was a minor point anyway.

Thanks for your thoroughness and attention.
