Potentially broken Building interior

Post by herman2000 » Sat May 16, 2020 3:53 pm

While experimenting with World Data modification, one of the buildings I encountered appeared slightly bugged. There's no floor underneath the merchandise racks. I created a dump of the building using the internal tools.
Spoiler!

This looks like something missing in game data, and would also be present in classic. Can you let us know the Region, Town, and Shop names this was found in?

Welllllllll, it's a custom town from my addition to World data, so it doesn't exactly appear in vanilla in the spot I encountered this in ^^;

(The town is Dunlain Falls from my New Canon Locations World Data set, in the Wrothgarian Mountains, for what it's worth. I haven't specifically hunted this block down in other places, tho'. It's the smaller of two weapons shops.)

This forum is for DFU support, like setting up and gameplay problems. This sounds more like a modding question now. I'll move into one of those forums.

It's likely a data issue inherited from classic in any case. We've found buildings missing ceilings and with extra sets of stairs, missing some floor is about on par for Daggerfall. :)

At least with the mod system, you can likely inject back the missing piece to complete layout.

That said, I am interested in investigating this. I found that the ceiling has the same problem:

I kind of both figured and hoped that was the case. I suppose that just means I'm using data that not even the original game is using, in which case, unexpected behavior is to be, uhh, expected.
Thanks.

Good news. I've managed to fix this bug:
