Looks like they downgraded the compiler to C# 6 or something with this update. C# 7 features that have been supported for ages, like support for expression-bodied properties and pattern matching (like if (shape is Square s)), suddenly no longer compile.

Zach that isn't related to this issue.

It might not be directly related to the stack trace posted, but you're talking about mods failing to compile, and that's a big contributing factor in this update.

I must not have gotten the fix yet; I'm still getting it.


Edit: I stripped out all the C# 7 stuff from Build Vision and everything started working again clientside, but it's still producing the error above in the DS logs. I guess they are separate problems.

Hello Shane!

I appreciate this thread is quite old. Is this a problem that still persists on the latest version of 197.075? If it is now fixed, I will close the thread. If you are still experiencing issues, please also let me know :)

Kind Regards
