'''Configuration:''' version: 2.5 / system: AMD64 / GPU: RV790 / module: "ATI Radeon HD4870 and earlier" '''Game-play impact:''' none '''Reproducibility:''' triggered at will (on two maps). '''Description:''' Usually, you never try and drop an item when you know that a soldier's TUs are spent. Still, it may accidentally occur. If you do so (when I do so), you most likely trigger the following graphical artifact: '''a white octahedron''' (like 8-side dice) '''appears at soldier's coordinates''', circa at belly height (when crouched, this mean circa shoulder height). '''First conclusions:''' As far as I can tell: * the artifact is created on the very turn the item is "not dropped"; * it's static (save for a slight texture effect); * the soldier doesn't have to be crouched; * it remains on the spot when the character moves; * it lasts several turns, if not until the mission ends; * several ones may be created on the same turn by following the same procedure as described above (with several soldiers of course); * sometimes, the artifact doesn't appear immediately (on closing the window), but "then", it's there (I have to be more precise!); * smoke at soldier's position is not relevant, but there's always smoke on the map when I experienced and tested (I have to test again); * '''dropping an item on the same spot cancels the artifact''' immediately (experienced on the next turn with the same soldier); I didn't tested if * "not enough TUs" is the only trigger (0,1 and 2 TUs are sure for the backpack) * the place where the item is stored is relevant (backpack is sure); * it only occurs with two slots items or any item (PRL ammo and laser ammo are sure);
Steps to reproduce this issue
During a mission on the Battlescape, # Take a soldier and waste all or nearly all of his TUs; # Open his Equipment window; # Try and drop an item in the backpack unto the ground; a red notice is displayed; I can't tell yet if only one try is enough, but it occurred with one try only at least thrice.
