Bug Fixing and Band Aids

I spent most of today working on some of the more critical bugs that exist in NEO Scavenger. They include:

  • Fixed a crash when changing resolution during skill selection.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented savegames from storing current encounter page. (e.g. missing the encounter when loading)
  • Fixed a bug that caused items to multiply when degrading in a pocket underneath another clothing item. (e.g. endless rags in a pocket under a squirrel tunic)
  • Fixed bug preventing night vision augmentation from being used in scavenging.
  • Optimized new crafting screen load faster. (Was sometimes taking a few seconds to load. Now, less than 1 second.)

I think those were some of the more game-breaking bugs that I had left. There are still a few bugs that people have reported which I cannot reproduce yet, but if I can find them, I'll fix those too.

I also applied a few minor fixes:

  • Changed clothing degrade and un-crafting recipes to each produce 5 rags and 5 strings, rather than just random number of rags.
  • Changed torch recipes to accept both clean and dirty rags.
  • Added sleeping pills to scavenge and junk store inventories.
  • Added recipes for disassembling strapped or scoped 308. (Previously, could only disassemble a scoped + strapped rifle.)

I think at this point, I've fixed all the bugs I plan to before the next build. I still have some clean-up work to do on the title screen, and then I want to try a couple longer play sessions to see if anything comes up in more long-term plays. Provided the playtests are feeling pretty solid, we may have a build candidate!

Not sure if that'll be tomorrow or Thursday yet, but it feels like it should be soon. Fingers are crossed!

YES! Shirts producing string will help me so much!
Keep up the good work Dan!
