Players with Building Issues from 0.77.0

3y
#1
If you were experiencing building related issues from v0.77.0, could you please test your colony on the v0.78.0 web client here:
https://www.apewebapps.com/my-colony/

...and let me know if you are still experiencing the same issues? Also, can you let me know what your 'Multithreaded Pathfinding' engine setting is set for, or any other engine settings which may have been changed? Not sure what caused the issues but I have tried following the steps to reproduce the problems exactly, and have been unable to. Wondering if there is a common engine setting triggered on all of the impacted players? I did clean up several bugs that were reported to the bug tracking console, although most of them were exclusive to the Windows 10 (store) version of the game, so I am not sure which version you all had been using.

In specific, I am wondering about issues experienced by @hi123456789 @Ashanorath @sirdrewdude @Carolan

Thank you for your help!

Multithreaded Pathfinding was on, and the bug started occurring even when just deleting 2 buildings in a row, 1st one would be gone fine, 2nd one would just go invis.
Hmm, opening any preexisting maps in regions in the 0.78 in browser just gives me "save corrupted", hopefully someone else has more luck of actually testing if the fix works on existing maps.
I did however make a new map and did some building, deleting, selling and such for ~30min and the bug didn't happen, so it looks promising.

Which client were the corrupted saves made with? Was it by chance the Windows Store edition?

standalone client.
last time I tested opening saves in web was in 0.76 and it worked back then.
the saves still work fine in the standalone client but in browser I can only open region map and build new cities, opening any of the existing ones triggers the save corrupt message and kicks back to the main menu.
wouldn't say it's a big deal, might just be something my end.

I play on steam, here is my engine settings:
http://prntscr.com/m1kin2 http://prntscr.com/m1kipa http://prntscr.com/m1kirz

I'm still experiencing the bug with multithreaded pathing off.
On 0.78 I can join my region but as soon as I go into any city it corrupts my save file so I can't say if it fixes the bug.

The bug happens on cities created during and before 0.77

EDIT: Oh and I tried to join the web version a while ago with my steam region and I got save file corrupted aswell so maybe the web version doesn't like steam? (0.76)

EDIT 2: I can get into new cities in my region fine (ones that I make on the web) but not pre existing ones. Didn't seem to get the bug on the new cities though I only tested for about 5 minutes.

Are you using the Cloud Sync to transfer the city files from Steam to the Web version, or are you importing the files from the Game Data menu?

That was for both @hi123456789 and @Ashanorath

Has anybody reported the vanishing water/ocean bug on waterworld and earth-like maps? It has happened to me on three city maps so far, in the 0.77.0 version with Multi-threading pathways OFF, on Region map types. Another bug is that builders have stopped building on two maps so far(same parameters), which kind of defeats the purpose of a city-building game.

Thank you @wormjon did you see if the issue is still there in 0.78.0 on the web as prescribed in the original post of this thread? I am trying to debug these issues right now, but since they are not happening on any of my devices, I need people who are actually experiencing the issue to help test and let me know if the current fixes are working :-/

On both of the map types that have had these problems, I cannot get the backed up/saved game to load, and a datafile corrupted message appears.
