chests not showing contents or activity
« on: July 09, 2019, 10:25:36 am »
Minor bug that maybe is common?

Occasionally I find that a chest at the Saddlebag malfunctions and won't show the contents or the activity (what was taken or dropped off), when I examine it. My fix for that is to empty the chest, destroy it, and recreate the chest. Is there something else I should be doing?

Also, sometimes when i examine a chest to see the activity, it lists what has been added, but there's a blank space where it should list the name of who added the item.
Example: 99 Dust of Greenstone added by    on Novlar 20, 1471, 6:39 PM."

Try erasing the description with ~~wipe and then adding removing an item to refresh the contents/activity.

With newly added stacking changes the engine is combining multiple stacks that were once in the container and that triggers the ondisturb. Those are the events with no name.

OK, I was not using ~~erase or ~~ wipe.
Is ~~wipe better than ~~erase?
Thanks!

Oh maybe it was ~~erase not ~~wipe. That's what I meant.
