Descriptive Problem Summary:
Sometimes removing something from an object's vis_contents will cause it to remain on the client.
Seems to generally involve changing vis_contents just before (or any point after) removing the affected object from a clients screen/view
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Place object B in vis_contents of object A
2. Remove B from vis_contents of A (but dont del it) and move A into object C
3. Move A out of C, B will still be visible on A despite not being in A.vis_contents, note: relogging will fix this
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
Once you compile and launch it hit the "start vis_contents test" verb
Things removed from an object's vis_contents will no longer show up as if in the object's vis_contents list.
The thing removed is still visible as if it were in vis_contents to some clients.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?
In other games?
In other user accounts?
On other computers?
Yes, tested with one other user in the linked code and 100+ in another project
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
This issue was reported and fixed in 512.1463 however checking old versions the bug shows up again in 512.1465
