Bookcases doing weirds

Postby Rebma » Mon Feb 27, 2017 2:00 pm

ERROR: You tried to retrieve raw materials from an empty storage


When trying to read a book in an unlocked bookcase. Tested two different ones, problem persists.

Is the book empty?

Shouldn't be. I can double check, but I don't imagine so.

Hmm. Odd. They shouldn't be empty but they are. Sorry Greek. You can delete this topic.

It's still valid, because the error message is incorrect.

I was also playing with books/bookcases/nested envelopes recently and I was angry that trying to enter an empty envelope in envelope moved me to the inventory page.

Well I mean it's not wrong in that the book was empty, and I was technically trying to retrieve it's contents. But yeah a message more like "there is nothing in this book" would have probably been better to see.

I am having problems putting notes into books lately. Anybody else?

Thanks.
