  1. ...but you can still fish Refer topic : [YLD-32158] Logged in... and lost all progress including ship Posted November 28, 2021 (edited) Loaded my SP exploration game to have boat floating in the air in fog. The terrain never loaded, then it said I was cold and freezing, and then the terrain loading screen showed. I reappeared with all my inventory and didn't get a message about dying. I was on an undiscovered island across an unexplored map. In my previous session, I'd journeyed to a new map and parked my boat on the shore of the first island, and then logged out. A forum search found this similar experience - https://ylands.com/community/topic/30607-lost-my-boat-is-there-a-way-to-load-an-older-save-file/ The only earlier save is prior to the pre-generation of that archipelago. Of note, the island that I parked near was tropical like my starting islands. A thick mist rolled in before I logged, but there was no indication that it was going to be cold. I was wearing bark armor. I attempted to summon my ship (I was SO happy that was an option) at the new island, but no boat appears....just a disappointing sparkle glow....TA DA...ta didn't. Is my save corrupted? Do I start over? This was my first playthrough since 2017, so I'm still re-learning the game. Thank you for your time! output_log.txt output_log_clean.txt Update: I'm so confused. There was a previous save from yesterday...called Starting Yland, that was prior to me leaving my initial map. I decided to try it since my only other earlier save was a MP map I accidentally clicked on before going to my 2nd local map. Launching this Starting Yland save, put me on this new undiscovered island on the new local map with my boat in the water where I'd previously made an unsuccessful attempt to summon it. Even though the date is showing yesterday 3 saves past, it's putting me in the most recent position.

  2. This is a known nuance and has been reported before. if you make a dock and moor ship inside it will either end out to sea when you re log ..or if you have a blocking barrier..it will sometimes climb the barrier and tip over! If you also happen to moor in deep water close to land, when you re log your ship will sometimes try to rezz in over the land an fly off into the "you-know-where", and if you are aboard, you freeze to death and lose everything ... including the ship and everything on it. Its been reported before and documented ... and frustrating to know its still happening. A couple of times this has happened to me ,,,,and others ..and most likely they are like me and playing the game less because of the frustration of having to continually restart and losing progress
  3. If you want adventure, Ylands can provide it All those screenshots seem almost identical to my experience... same island view ... maybe a map issue? I found that if you log out with your ship offshore and in deeper water its less likely to happen ..... when it happened to me i was in deep water but adjacent to steep shoreline..i surmised that maybe the ship co-ordinates "drifted" over land when logged out and logging in... since i been careful to moor further offshore it has not happened again So a tip ... dont go offline with your ship moored in an inlet with shallow water either side.

    Exploration - Lost Ship- Now stuck

    its happened to me twice before and it seems like an old bug i reported some time ago ..i got tossed out of ship when logging in ... and we went different directions. Having to re start from scratch is one of the reasons i rarely play Ylands now ,,, i have been back since the update, but if this is still happening ... well... ?????
  5. A tier 1 isalnd did not load in properly ... on the mapo the area shows as a square... and sailing around it parts are not there. screenshots and logs provided. output_log_clean.txt output_log.txt
  6. going to log in and test this with a "disposable ship" see if i can duplicate results and get screenshots
  7. I see in discord chat that another player lost their ship in identical circumstances ...and same experience., ie ship went skywards tossing them out then flew off into the never - never So .. do not moor your ship in an inlet between cliffs or land and then log out with your avatar inside.
  8. Having items disappearing from the kitchen cabinets is perplexing but i think i found the cause. They never make it there! If you drag items from your inventory to the cabinet window, if you are not accurate or whatever ... sometimes the objects don't transfer... they "fade out" and disappear. If other find that happening, grab your logs and pester the devs .., it seems to be random and mainly on cabinets on ships.

    KNOWN ISSUE Boat Missing

    KNOWN ISSUE Boat Missing

    another thing is items disappearing from containers in ships ... namely the kitchen cabinets ..i had about 6 of them loaded with gold zirc and ylandium ...and now they are empty. We suspect that after they were paced on the ship and went offline there was a rollback? because after re joining 2 hours later i found the items missing as i went to get them to use to trade. I am guess in that there was a rollback when offline to a time before i loaded them on the ship. anyway , its not real gold ;0
  11. @ktzo ...if in a mp game and you see Honeychicken blundering around ...or the asian biome BaconHam ... ..drop in and we can comiserate together. ? I took a shopping break .... got some neat sales specials and shoe shopping therapy works wonders. I am making a back up base on an pvte island to store extra stuff.... in case the ship goes bye-bye again

    KNOWN ISSUE Boat Missing

    We are discovering by trial and error if you log out on your ship with it moored too close to shoreline , or in an inlet, when you log back in the ship will try to spawn on the land ...toss you out and fly off into the never never and you cannot summons it and lose whats on board bug or feature? not sure yet

    How to bring back alpha players in 6 changes.

    Players want what they want...and complain if they do not get it. The issue is not all players want the same and the Devs have to add and subtract to keep everyone happy, But as they say, a camel is a horse designed by a committee, and as players scream for Boss monsters, flying things, more combat, less combat, whatever etc we get an uglier camel! But Camels are useful in the proper environment ... .. they no good in the arctic or tropics....... ( and harder to like than horses...) So perhaps the players should stop pestering the devs to add things that will make Ylands the same as all the other games of this genre, and let them follow their roadmap and get what's here working properly first To be honest ...if the games changes to require fighting monsters and Boss monsters to proceed... then its just like the plethora of other teen/anime based kill everything games ... and people like me wont be bothered. To the devs... you cannot please everyone all the time. Look at the original game and its initial success...and work from there.
  15. ty spirit ;0 i made it to the starter island .. i still have weaponry and items in inventory ... will start a new ship ( always bigger and better ) but first got some rl shopping and stuff to do. whats annoying was all the resources i had stored on the ship ... ah well... guess thats life.
