Sir Stain reminded Devs of a matter he brought up previously.

Posted Image Miner keeps dropping ingots

I brought this up about a month ago on the site to GMs. Never got a reply. My miner after he smelts ingots off his fire beetle will occasionally drop some of them on the ground. I will run to next spot to mine only to have to run back and retrieve the ingots dropped. I have monitored my weight and he is not overloaded when this happens. Has anyone else encountered this? It happens in all lands more in fel. I mine for jewels in trammel lands because they are not double resources and they depend on hits, ingots in felucca for dbl ore. Will this change? Dbl jewels that is in fel.


Caelas made me laugh with his response.

Sorry I can't help ya, but my wife has the same issue in Tram and Fel. She just says her beetle pooped more ingots and happily stuffs them in her pack.

Just a little comic relief. Just clean up after your beetle and move on Posted Image


That's happened to me too, Jafanarae told us although I have no idea if it happens one one facet more than another. I don't know of a cause or solution and haven't seen anyone else post about it. It's not just you though!


Caelas again =)

Ever wonder why you can smelt ingots on the fire beetle, and yet somehow sit right on it's back to ride it? Wouldn't that hurt just a little bit?


Tina Small seems to have an easy answer

I believe this happens if your character is overloaded at the time you smelt the ore on the fire beetle's back.


makes sense and many more people posted their own experiences.

If y'all haven't sent that in as a bug, please do so.

Jeremy reminded everyone.

It may be more trouble than it's worth to fix (it may be intrinsic to the way item weights are handled, or it may be preventing some weird exploit) but I'd like to have someone look at it to be sure.
