Starmade | Cargo movement bugs while the amount is increasing
Closed, FinishedPublic


You can only really get these with planet-miners or... Miners in general really as they are the only things that generate ticks of blocks so fast.

Basically, sometimes when a resource is being added to, it will refuse to me moved around for the sake of inventory management. You have to drag a non-increasing number over the increasing one to get them to change positions.

...Been in for a long time, I've only just remembered that it may be a bug more than anything

AndyP triaged this task as Normal priority.

Not actually a bug, but if they have constant inflow of blocks, its protected from being moved, as the race conditions could lead to blocks being destroyed or created.
While the first case would not be too much of a problem, the second case would be an exploit.

So, can you still reproduce this, and have any specific negative side effects from it, that would require a fix?
