Inventory order resets after leaving game

George Zeng shared this bug 9 months ago
Won't Fix

I have a very specific order that I like my grid inventories to be in, and it is incredibly frustrating for everything to suddenly and randomly get shifted around after I exit a save.

After reconstructing a grid and confirming that the order was exactly how I wanted it, I exited the game. After a couple hours when I returned to the save, I found that the inventory order of the grid had shifted drastically, throwing everything out of order, forcing me to rebuild a fourth time. Yes, four. This has happened to me three times in this save alone already.

I cannot provide you with a copy of the game I am working on because the only way for you to see the changes is to have a before and after, and I will not be able to tell you whether or not the inventory will change between saves.

Issue might be tied to using the "local grid alignment" function. If I add a block with an inventory to a grid using this function and not pointing at the grid, it looks like its adding all block inventories starting from the blocks closest to the new block being placed. After leaving the save and coming back the inventory screen changes based on this new order.

Hello!

Thank you for the information. I have been trying to reproduce this, however, unable to. Is it happening in a particular mode such as creative or survival? Any extra information would be great for me to try to reproduce this.

Kind regards

I've seen this happen in both modes.

In survival, this bug appears for me when i add a block using the "align with local grid" function, though I have seen this issue come up randomly when building in space without gravity. I try to be very careful when placing down blocks so I will always see my cargo containers, o2/h2 generators, and reactors in this order. However, on multiple occasions, after putting down these blocks in that order, I might re enter my inventory to see that the block order has changed, sometimes even while in the same play session.

In creative, I typically see this issue when i use the copy paste function to paste one grid onto another, even if the grid being pasted is a single block.

Here is an interesting thought:

If inventory order is the order in which blocks are placed down, how can cargo block 2 appear before the first cargo block?efac6a06285788efcfa8428d2634d66a

A helpful feature would be a function that could be used to manually reorganize a grid's inventory screen, similar to the arrow keys found in the mod selection screen.

Hello George! In terms of feature ideas, if you could direct them here that would be brilliant as this is where they will be considered.

I have actually already submitted this in feedback already, however the original problem I submitted still stands.

Hello George!

I'm afraid I still haven't been able to replicate this issue as the items are repeatedly in the same order for me when I come back to the save file. Is it possible you are able to record a video of this happening?
