Inventory retains invisible 0% food items making slot unusable
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When eating food items I have noticed a subsequent inability to use the inventory slot the item was from.

Eating a food item appears to remove it from the inventory.
Attempting to refill the slot with another item fails
When reconnecting to a server the slot is filled with a 0% food item

I have noticed this occuring with soda cans and tuna cans

This has happened reliably on hardcore mode servers
I was unable to replicate this on a regular mode server

I have noticed this as well, I keep having to relog, after which my bag will show an 0% item where the consumed item had been which I then have to manually remove from my bags.

I also run often into this bug on regular mode servers

This bug seems to be always reproducable when drinking a soda directly from the ground

I also had this bug with a Coke or Soda.

Confirmed also for Regular mode servers.

For me, only soda cans are disappearing but staying in my inventory. Once I log out and log back in, sure enough, I have an inventory full of empty soda cans. Has been happening since the .34 patch

I confirm this in 0.35

I had the same problem on a regular server in version 035.115.188

same in above version

I habe the same problems sometime. Next day, Next Server, the 0% drink is visible and you can drop it

Still happening on the new experimental 36.115535, it mainly happens when you eat FROM the GROUND, while having space in your inventory.

Also can confirm that it happens on the current experimental 36.115535

Have found that removing the item with the invisible slot and placing it on the ground, then picking it back up again will make the slot usable again.

Yep found when drinking a can straight from the spawn area it puts an invisible 0% one in my an empty inventory slot thus making it unusable. When I re-log back into the game the cans will appear in my inventory.

Came here to report some findings but can see that Window Licker has already reported it.

Confirmed: Removing the item of clothing and putting it back on again clears the invisible item.
Tested: Multiple times with multiple different items (although mostly cans)
Branch: Experimental

Add this: Works with both regular and hardcore modes and every type of food (not sure does it work with bottles and canteens).

And this bug happens ONLY when you eat something directly from the vicinity and not placing it into your inventory and then eating it.

To me it happens also if i'm eating (also from inventory) and until he is finished i close the inventory and press an hotkey. Then the 0% item will be put back in the backpack. So interrupt the animation.

My issue is not a duplicate of this issue, I'm adding the bug report here to ensure the devs understand the exact steps I took and can look for the clear issue in inventory object higherarchy:

Acquire two sodas of like type (I used Rasputin Kvass)

Place each soda in a separate slot in the same inventory item (Two back pack slots)

Drink soda 'New'. (The newly acquired soda.)

Move soda 'Old' (The original can in your inventory.) to the prior location of soda 'New'

Attempt to place an item in soda 'Old's prior location and observe as you are unable to do so although the slot is empty

Same problem happens to me. Re-logging makes the empty can appear so I can red rid of it. Happens on all servers, not just hardcore. Haven't tried the removal of the item of clothing yet, but I'm hesitant to do this now, as I put my M4 on the ground the other day and it disappeared, couldn't get it back :(

Confirmed in the actual stable: soda cans and fruits

I had this happen to be a few hours before the patch today and some today after patch.

On .42 stable:
Confirmed, also on regular servers for me. With the Tuna box.

On .35 stable:
And then a bug similar to this:

While putting .45 ACP magazine in a slot and empty it produces invisible single bullets for two slots. But I could use the slots with a 5.56 magazine. But then I got a constant 'empty ammo box/ magazine' sound spamming the client in loop.

Solution was to remove the 5.56 magazine and then the single bullets came visible in both the slots for the 5.56 magazine from the .45 ACP. The single bullets was then visible in both slots and I manage to remove them to vicinity and the issue was solved and sound was gone. This was just one single bullet in each slot.

I'm seeing this on .42.116181 as well.

After removing 0% item slot remains not use able.

This is easy to fix, just put the item with the iventory slot thats not working on the ground, put it back on - fixed. i think its just a small bug atm.

Confirmed on 45.124299(Hardcore), always happened after food/drink consumption from environment/vicinity. -- Logging in today left me with percentage items at 0% (can of beans) which were not usable but dropable from inventory. The soda cans and kiwi(one use items) however were now usable againe with all the normal benefits. Reproduction of issue always possible.

Steps to Reproduce:

-Put open can (<100%/not0%) or other consumables like berries and soda cans in environment

-Reticule(vicinity loot window works reliable too) over and eat/drink(eat/drink all if multiusage item)

-Inspect inventory slots being blocked by invisible items


-Find used items back in the inventory slots previously blocked by invisible items. While percentage items are now at 0% and not usable but moveable, one use items(non%) are consumable againe with all benefits.

-Possible repitition to increase state of water/energy if put back to environment and consumed as stated above.
Only with one use items which have no % value.

Just noting that I believe I ran into this yesterday, in a Green Mountain Backpack that I found at the airfield. It had items in it already, which makes me think someone dumped it previously. There was one slot that could not have items placed into it, and could not have anything dragged out of that slot. v0.44123800
