Yes you cant take bags placed in editor, but you can pick up bag you droped, there is a 2 buttons above list of items: 'ground/bag', switch to 'ground' and you should see your bag.

i know this, you can pick them up in signal player but not in multiplayer.

If you pick it up off another player in Multiplayer and wear it, your torso will appear and disappear, while the bag shows up on the ground because its not sure where to put the pack.

ok, is there an idea on when this will be fixed ?

Yep same for me. I am creating a mission and after last update I can not pick up backpacks anymore.

Might be related to #12827

Yep, that's possible.

everyone calm down ;-) Now I have to struggle with another one, but I going to add this task into my list

Since I'm not at my gaming rig right now, I can't test this, but can someone do me a favor:

  1. Download and run the attached mission. (CantPickUpPackRepro.Stratis.7z)
  2. Create a trigger activated *repeatedly* by "Radio Alpha".
  3. In the "on activation" area, write the following:

hint format["Distance: %1m", player distance cursorTarget]

  1. Make the AI drop his backpack, then move very close to it, look at the backpack and press 0 0 1 to activate the trigger.

What number is shown? If it's a large number, the falsely reported backpack position (#0012827) may indeed be the cause of this issue.

So much for that theory. The reported distance looks correct.

I did not have issues picking up packs today.

can someone give me a feedback if this problem is still actual or is not?

I am now unable to reproduce this problem in the SP mission editor. I haven't tested in MP.

Repro B is still an issue in my brief MP test in dev build 1.65.138598.
Can anyone please confirm?

@Astaroth I've checked - it's resolved. Ticket can be closed.
