    Another repost, giving overly detailed changelogs makes the post get to the 10000 character limit fast ... Continue discussing here just like the other three threads.

    This thread is for posting bugs, issues in the game, or any other minor improvements you would like to report. Do not post suggestions for new elements or features here, those should go in the feedback forum.

    I found a nasty loophole, yes, a REAL LOOPHOLE, it's probably my fault for triggering it (and maybe I made it by accident), but you might want to look into it just in case, it may cause a crash under certain conditions if it's really in the official source too.


    It's simply this: It is possible for an element to detect a conductor in between transistion from itself to spark (as in between frames). I know this window is like a microsecond, but it happened, and it's not good.


    Note: See my Rechargeable Battery thread for further detail

    no, I promise spark can not possibly cause any crashes at all. It must just be with your code.

    Also spark is reset in a separate loop before any elements update, and there is no place in between where an element's update function is run to detect a spark about to go away (0 life). there have been minor bugs with particle order and spark detection before, but some of them were fixed and they can't make the game crash since there is nothing unsafe done with that anyway except if's and stuff.

    NEW BUG!

    You fixed the BRMT from TUNG melting and cooling to re-form TUNG. But you introduced a new bug. Now ALL BRMT (including the BRMT that can be directly placed, and the BRMT that forms from breaking BMTL) will melt and cool back to TUNG! So now BMTL can be converted to TUNG by breaking it, then melting it and allowing it to cool. This is NOT supposed to happen!

    Please fix this!

    What happened to the "BRAY passes through PSCN-BRAY" bug I reported? I can't find it in that so-called list of known bugs...

    odd ... I must have typed something wrong, perhaps an = instead of an == or something. Or maybe I just forgot the ctype == PT_TUNG check altogether. I'll fix it.

    @Rawing (View Post)
    Either I put it in the fixed list of I never put it in at all. Sometimes I fix bugs as soon as they are reported and so don't put them in the list, since the list is mostly just for myself. It is fixed in the beta though.

    I'd like to see an Aerosol element. We've not had a new gas in a while so I think that could be a fun new thing to bring to the table. It would have the symbol ARSL and would be the color on TPT decoration color board 23-159-190-255. It'd be flammable like OXYG/HYGN and expansive like BOYL.
