Bug causing animals to disappear

Post by pendlezz » Sun Nov 25, 2018 4:26 pm

It appears that in Multiplayer, any time you do a soft server reset, on dedicated servers, all the animals on the map disappear. I have only had sheep and horses, so not sure about others but i am sure it is the same.

The pet menu says that you dont own any pets, however my sheep were continuing to produce wool, even though they werent there. Not sure if they are just invisible and the menu is messed up, or if they are not there and the set amount of produce you get every day is messed up.

I would take a look into it though. I tried several times and it was the same every time. Always disappear on server reset.

thanks

Can confirm. All animals are gone after a dedicated server restart.

Same problem here... XML has the sheep listed but not displayed, and menu states that the assigned player to that Farm as Manager has no animal pens yet.

The amount of problems is getting ridiculous!

I have the same problem, now short $60k because of repurchasing. Will stop playing multiplayer until this is resolved. Nothing like wasting money on a dedicated server when you can't even play properly.

I actually had it randomly come back after multiple restarts and for non-related issues.

I think the time it came back was after I had dled the savegame and made edits to money and vehicles, and then reuploaded... then on restart and entering the server the sheep were back...

This may have been coincidental

I see most animal related stuff needs some time to update before showing correct values.

Do the animals stay "gone" even if you wait a while?
There is probably a parameter missing in the "update thingy" that causes the animals not to show ...

It has nothing to do with an update cycle... they are listed in the files they just aren't visible and insofar as the game mechanic is concerned there are no animals there.

Restarting / Reseting the server has no impact, however after about 20 odd different restarts after one they did return...

Today was the third time I lost all my animals due to a dedicated server update on Verygames, same issue as the above.
This is getting old reeeeal fast, this is one of those game breaking bugs that tempts me to leave FS alltogether and claim a refund, this is NOT what Giants claimed to be selling in which I bought !
And their lack of responce on this thread indicates very little interest in fixing it.
