Terrain Bug Reports
« on: April 12, 2017, 09:12:44 pm »
This thread is to centralize all reports of specific bugs regarding the terrains/maps used in Area 51 and the Terrain Pack, specifically the following types of bugs:

* Usually crashes upon the craft reaching a site and clicking on the launch button (can be other issues, though)
* Empty black patches where map sections should have been placed
* 2x2 alien units stuck in rooms/divisions where they can't leave
* Ground/walls/objects being replaced wrongly after being hit by weapons fire
* Wrong materials (metal, stone) being set on fire
* Doors being replaced by other things when opened
* Funky animations
* Units being able to see/fire through walls and other map features that should block vision/weapons fire
* Misplaced map tiles (ground standing on air, extra/missing walls, etc.)
* Aliens starting the mission on wrong locations like inside objects or in the air

IMPORTANT - When submitting a report please include a picture displaying the bug if possible, otherwise it can forever to discover the specific map

Thank you!

Can I link another post? It's pretty informative, though I'm not sure if it hasn't been solved yet:

I think I found a bug in the downtown urban map script.
Second-last command of the script:
Code: [Select]
    - type: addBlock
      size: 2
      blocks: [2, 6, 14, 15]
      executions: 3
      maxUses: [1, 1, 1, 1]

but it should be:

Code: [Select]
    - type: addBlock
      size: 2
      blocks: [1, 6, 14, 15]
      executions: 3
      maxUses: [1, 1, 1, 1]

block 1 is the 20*20 one; block 2 is 10*10.

Yup, you're right. Thanks for the report

Terrain design bug (stairs are missing floor underneath, causing the unit to fall). Thanks!

Same bug what I mentioned before, just different map layout. Can't step on tile under red cursor. Data  extraction site Asia region, Korea on map (not 100% sure)

P.S.
By the way, where is new fixed archives? The latest on mediafire seems same as old one, size and date at least, not checked CRC. Are you uploading them there?

I was waiting so long for verification that i forgot the details of the bug I wanted to report. It was a desert airplane crush. When you use some explosive ammo or rockets on some metal element, the explosions are being triggered through big part of the area and it takes a serious amount of time.

If you're using OXCE, it's a known issue... a feature actually.
OXCE performs all terrain explosions, unlike OXC which skips a lot of them.
On some maps it leads to very long explosion chains...

Long-term we will try to do something about it.

That's how the terrain was originally designed for TFTD - I haven't changed anything about it.

The good part - use a grenade to set off the plane wreckage before stepping outside. Makes everything a lot easier ;)
