Bug in android app, clarification?
« on: November 21, 2014, 07:29:45 AM »
I place a festival tile in the top right hand corner:



I can choose to remove a follower from anywhere on the board.



I choose my follower from the large city in the top left hand corner.  I confirm my choice and my opponent (AI) immediately goes.  It is now my go again, situation as follows:



I add a piece to the same large city, and I am able to place a follower on it.  Despite the city having a builder, I did not get two goes.



I believe the bug is that the builder should be returned to the hand at the same time as the final follower is returned from the city.

Can someone confirm?  If so, I’ll email the app creator.

James

Hi James, welcome to the forums!  :(y)

I believe we have been discussing this via Twitter?  :)

You're right in your assumption that the builder should be removed. It can't be in the city without a knight just as a pig can't be on a farm without a farmer!

I'd say you're safe to report this as a bug to exozet...

Thanks for embedding - yes that's me. It seems to happen when both crop circles and festival tiles are played, for farmers/pigs, thieves/builders and knights/builders.

Interestingly, the player gets a restock of pig/builder. So you can end up with multiple pigs/builders showing on screen for one player.

They go away if you exit the app and reenter, so it appears to be only a visual problem, I assume that when multiple pigs/builders show for one player, only the latest played one actually gets scored (or causes an extra turn).

I've sent exozet a link to this thread. Hopefully they'll respond.

I've found another couple of bugs. All in offline mode against CPU, with all expansions running.

1. I placed the final piece, I put a farmer on it. I was red. You can see the farm in the right hand side of this screen grab. It scored me only 3 points. I think this is incorrect.

Also, in a previous game I got a straight bit of road. I was unable to lay a follower on the road in the location I'd hoped to. I don't know why this was? I was able to place a follower on the road when I placed the road elsewhere.... See two screen shots.


(Can lay dude on road)

(Different location, inexplicably cannot lay dude on road)

Happy thanksgiving to the Americans!

Yep, that farm is definitely worth 6 points as it clearly contains 2 cities...

...and that road looks like it should be claimable in both of those screenshots.

In conclusion I'd say that it looks like there are still a lot of bugs when you play with all the expansions. Even though I've paid extra to own them, I rarely play with anything beyond the base game as bugs like this tend to ruin the experience.

Did Exozet reply to your email at all?

Only to say they'll be looking at it... I'll also alert them that more problems are documented in this thread
