Hoe with a seed selected

Postby Denis » Mon Jul 13, 2015 8:13 am

Why is it that you cannot hoe while having a seed selected in the inventory? Why would that prevent you from hoeing[1]?

[1] Is there another verb for hoeing, or the action of using a hoe? English isn't my native tongue, so I'm sorry if I sometimes misspell or use a wrong verb. Feel free to correct me!

There are a couple of tools that are sensitive to what item is selected in inventory, and only work if compatible item is selected.
- Dibble, and Generator are the ones i can think of at the moment

For the rest of the tools, the only compatible item is <none>.

There was a release where if you had seed selected and used the hoe or shovel, it would consume seeds, and not do anything with them. It would just silently eat your seeds. Refusing to work at all, was a better choice.

It was a database thing. Some tools act on dirt (the hoe) and some require dirt + inventory (dibble). The hoe got confused if it saw "dirt + seed" because that didn't match "dirt + (nil)"

I'm pretty sure this is fixed in Beta-2. If not, it will be, soon! :)
