Duct tape / sewing kit disappearing
New, NormalPublic


If you find duct tape / sewing kit on the ground and repair anything without putting the DT / SK in your inventory first then whichever you are using to repair your garments will disappear after a single use.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce

Find a repair item (sewing kit / duct tape for now). Combine the item while it’s on the ground with an item that needs to be repaired in your hand. Do the repair. Duct tape / sewing kit will disappear.

Additional Information

This was on official servers- vanilla and occurred to me and another guy on different servers and different computers.

An extension on this- now sewing kits / duct tape are all disappearing regardless of whether they're in inventory. All of them disappear after a single use whether I pick them up from the ground and put them in my inventory before use, pick them up and use them, or pull them out of my existing inventory from another session and use them.

Just heard a work around in the forums... where this can be avoided if these kits are held in the hands first, and then used to repair the items. If sewing kits are chosen from the ground or from inventory and used to fix an item in your hands it will disappear.

I experienced this as well twice today on Version 1.06.152829, once with duct tape and another time with leather sewing kit.
Reproduction steps: Repair an item in your hands twice, so that the amount of duct tape remaining goes from 100% -> 75% -> 50%.
After the second repair, when only 50% remain, the duct tape / leather sewing kit disappears entirely from your inventory. Logs:
