Issue description
Item 3135 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 20:02:17

When dropping equipment on the ground, it stays visible during the turn.

But next turn it seems there is nothing on the floor, until you open the equipment panel.

I did these steps: 1. drop flamethrower 2. equip stun rod 3. now flamethrower is visible on the floor. walk elsewhere, stun alien 4. end turn 5. alien plays (not sure if it was visible there) 6. my next turn starts -> no flamethrower to be seen 7. walk to remembered square 8. pick up flamethrower

I saw the reported bug inside a building, I believe 'lab' or something.

I just played a map where an alien dropped hi plasma blade, and that was visible next turn.

maybe a friendly vs. enemy issue?

that was outside, in a jungle map BTW

As long as the item is in one of your soldiers line of sight, it will stay visible. If none of your soldiers can see the item when you end your turn, it will disappear.

I just noticed that on the bomb kit at fueldump map, where this might be a real problem for players.
