Need More Information

Once you place a rope drum, it is no longer able to be picked up. Only options are "Left click to carry this object" and "Right click to drag this object". Please fix the pickup ability on this item :)

We aren't having this issue. Can you share some steps to reproduce the issue or a short video showing the problem? It sounds straightforward but it just doesn't happen for us.

Create a vanilla, non-modded dedicated server. Use client to connect to server, place a rope drum on a catch block of any type. Hold F while looking at rope drum, check the tool tip (you notice there is not one). Take off the catch block since you have no access to the rope drum. Try to interact with the drum while it is on the ground. You can destroy it only if it says "Left click to pick up, Right click to carry" but only when the tooltip is on the screen. Dedicated server needs some love, it now has a major memory leak and sim speed issues from it in Patch 0.7.1.52815E.

I have the same issue. When the rope drum is attached to an item there is not hitbox or icon for picking the rope drum up. I eventually had to dismantle my project to get the rope drum to fall on the ground and then after 5 minutes of walking around and pushing the rope drum around I was finally able to get the rope drum picked up and put into my inventory.

We have the same issue aswell. My husband built a full house without problems, then placed a rope drum on a stonewall, immediately after that it was not showing any interaction possibilities, not even "drag" or "carry". Eventually he destroyed the wall which made the drum rolling around. He was able to kick it around by running into it, but still didnt get any interaction with it. (That was after I discovered that my foundations/stick fences (miles away) are no longer responding to anything as soon as I placed them, so maybe thats connected.)

Same!! I never thought about it being the rope drum. I too detached it from the catch blocks and now I am having a terrible time with targeting on all types of large and small block items - some miles and miles away. I had a cart explosion too and now I cannot target the parts that are left behind. Can move it by running into it but that is it.

The tag says the developers need more information, so here is what I do to create a loose rope drum.

I put a block on a wall, then I try to put the rope drum on the block. It does not line up perfectly and when I click to accept, the drum is placed next to the block, then falls down. After it falls, I cannot use my hammer to put it back in my inventory. If I clear all my tools (key-0), and use my left mouse button to pick it up, I cannot drop the rope drum again. It remains ghosted on my hand even if I equip my hammer or sword. I have to log out of the game to get it to drop.

I have also seen a similar problem with catch blocks. Some will deconstruct, but some will not. I have tried to recover 8 of them and I have two left over that are on the ground, unable to be deconstructed.

Hey guys, I was having this issue as well however did some testing and found found out a few things. If you are looking at the center rope portion you are not able to pick it up, however if you target the wooden edges you will. What makes this most challenging is most people have their Interaction Hints set to "Text Only". If you change this to "Icons & Text" or "Icons Only", you will get a small hand icon that pops up when you target the correct area for it to be picked up. You can find this setting in Options > Game > Show interaction hints. Hope that helps! Also created a short video: https://youtu.be/YUezn7O4JOI

Hi Keen Team!


I have tried on my side after 2 other members have created a discussion on Steam about this today and hope that will help.


My conclusion is the same as the above video by rberd86 ^ posted.

If the block is on the soil = aim at the side outer ring to add to inventory :

If the block is on a Catapult = Aim where there is no popup info and hold F to add to inventory :

I'm having this issue as well, except, I can't find the spot on the side to interact with as suggested by Daniel. There's nothing I can do to pick up my rope drum.

same issue as well as a memory leak on the server
