TRADER EXPLOIT BUG
TRADER EXPLOIT BUG

Hi the Wandering Merchant at the big river,
if you enter trade with him,
place some of your items in the trade window,
then close the window using the X button on the trade screen,
then re-enter trade with them you have your items back,
HOWEVER they are also still in the trade window,
you can do this repeatedly to keep increasing the number of items in your trade window,

Example if you have 500 antigravium shards in your inventory and place them all in the trade window, press the X to close the window then reopen the trade window, you will have your 500 antigravium back in your inventory BUT there will still be 500 antigravium in the trade window, put the 500 back in the trade window, so you now have double your original money 1000, close the woindow with X and reopen, you have your 500 back and still have 1000 in the trade window,

you can repeat this as many times as you like and use it to buy everything the trader has,
the trade works and you lose your original 500 even if you close the window again before doing the trade so the original 500 is back in your inventory, you still lose the original 500 from your inventory,

You can not do this and then transfer everything back into your inventory you only get back what you had originally the 500,

This also works with other traders i have tried it at.

Also floors and walls keep disapearing at the old fort inside a couple of the buildings as in becaome totally transparent.

The Wall disappearing is actually collision issue caused by the camera If i rember correctly.

You can Report such Things by pressing alt+f1. That will Trigger the Crash reporter.

It takes a Screenshot and sends logs and saves to the developers.

Saving beforing triggering the report would Help alot.

Cheers and thx dir the reports :D

The devs will appreciate it :D

haha you are welcome :D savegames, log files etc can be found in
*your windows username*\Documents\Alersteam\Exoplanet - First Contact\

Oh and in the reporter, if you click the link "Provide additional info[...]" you can add a description and your mail adress. makes it easier for the devs to find your report, if they need aditional info from you :D

We'll take care about everything, thanks. The thing with invisible walls and floors is more complex, it happens in places with roof because of camera, yes. Will see later what we can do to avoid it.
