Descriptive Problem Summary:
It seems both overlays and underlays adopt the icon of the atom they're tied to when their own icon is null. If you add an overlay with a null icon and pixel_x=32 to a blue circle, two blue circles will appear. This effects both atoms and images being used as overlays.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
- Create something with its icon variable set to null.
- Add it as an overlay or underlay to something else.
Code Snippet to Reproduce Problem:
An invisible overlay or underlay should be added.
The overlay or underlay adopts the icon of the atom it's being attached to.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Yes
In other games? Yes
In other user accounts? Yes
On other computers? Yes, Metamorphman independently discovered the bug as well.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions?
This seems to be a really old bug. It happens in v470 which is about how far back I can test without completely reinstalling BYOND.
Use blank icons in place of null icons.
