I wasn’t sure where to put this, but my game ran into a rather nasty bug after what I’m assuming was this last patch. Actually, I’ve run into quite a few bugs, but I’ve been able to ignore most of them until now, and didn’t really see anywhere to easily report them.
I was docked out at the lightship above Rowena’s Rocks before the patch. After the patch this lightship appears to have shifted down to the left, and my ship did not shift with it.
Instead I was docked out in the middle of the zee, to the left of the unnamed island above Rowen’s Rocks. I had the option to Launch, but not matter how many times I tried to choose the option, hotkey or otherwise, the game would not process it.
This effectively made me unable to continue my game, and I had to revert the save folder back to a previous day to remedy the issue.
I believe this may have been due to the map shifting indicated in the Emerald Patch.
While I’m posting this I will mention the few other bugs I have run into off the top of my head.
-You can press Full Power while docked (which I tried when I was stuck). You should probably not be able to do that, as all the flavour text that applies to it (including Engine Overheating) can be experienced while docked.
-Moody’s Light appears to not provide a terror de-buff. If this is intended I would suggest a visual indicator. Perhaps make Moody’s Light a red tint, or any light that does not provide terror de-buff’s a different tint.
-When entering into combat against vessels very quickly after choosing to loot and scuttle a previous vessel (EX when fighting two Pirate Steam Pinnace’s, right next to one another), you will not receive the loot from the first combat. The combat prompt from the second battle will precede the Cache of Curiosities prompt that you would have otherwise received from the first battle. When you choose to loot from the second battle you will receive a bugged Cache prompt (EX You now have x40 a Cache of Curiosities) and you will only receive one cache from the first, or more likely second, battle.
Despite the mentioned bugs, I greatly enjoy the game. Thanks for all your hard work.
