Piston cannot be retracted by hotbar button

unknown engineer shared this bug 3 years ago

Triggering a piston via a sensor sometimes makes the piston ignore commands via toolbar buttons. Here is the blueprint used in the video.

On a dedicated server you perform the listed steps at least two times for it to happen. The first time it always worked, the second time it always failed.

  • somehow trigger the sensor to extend the piston
  • disable the sensor (so it doesn't interfere)
  • hit the "retract piston" button on your hotbar
  • the piston doesn't retract
  • re-enable the sensor

Sometimes the server needed more compute load for it to happen so pasting the ship multiple times might be needed.Video:


The effect looks similar to this one though controlling the piston via the terminal works in contrast to the other report.
