New Exploit?
« on: January 17, 2013, 05:57:16 pm »

I'm not sure if this has been noticed before, but I'm kind of inclined to believe it has.
If you have a lever, and you try to connect it to spikes, on the list it will note the adamantine weapon in the HFS and allow you to zoom to it. This lets you note where the HFS is without much digging at all.

It was a planned feature to let you know exactly where it was with nothing more than a lever?
You sure?

You don't need a lever. If you check the "Rooms" menu (default R key I believe) then it will show up as well, and will allow you to zoom to it. At least it always has for me...

Its not a Feature Wartank, stop saying its a feature. Its a bug. Its a long standing bug. It belongs to an even older family of bugs, with the game being unable to differentiate between items present at a site from items you make yourself.

So, in the way back when, when you could embark on top of a human town, you would suddendly have a lot of Wealth, same with HFS stuff as well. Now, thats gotten somewhat better, but it still has issues telling ownership a part.
