24629 took a step backwards?
« on: June 09, 2009, 10:14:04 pm »
Odies build R24629 seems to have taken a step backwards. The pathfinding system wont allow you to go to the second story of Harvesters, and you cant watch aliens move. The first is a major problem, the second a convenience

Which revision was the last one where you could enter the "second story of Harvester" ?

The 'stairway bug' has been around for quite a while and we're working on that ;)

I think it was 24563, but there was a big issue of parts of the map being red-blocked (cant move there). I had to be careful not to go to the second story of other buildings, or else the unit couldnt go back down, though the UFO was fine

Like I said in my last post, it worked in a previous build. I dont know what changed so that the fix wasnt in 24629

i dont do my own builds, and since no one else has done a build for that revision, I cant test it.

EDIT: Strange. On the Africa map, I can go upstairs on the Harvester (R24564), but I cant on the +Farm

thanks for reporting, should be fixed in current trunk now. if you find any other harvester tiles where the stairs are not yet fixed, please let us know.

Does this mean the stairway problem is (should be) officially gone from trunk? :o That's great news! :)

On these maps, I have taken to looking at the stairs.  If they look more like a stairway, I've been able to go up.  If they look like a ramp, I go with the Automission, unless it loses.
