Sowing the seeds of love

(reference to an old song)

I'm putting this under bug instead of gameplay. I just planted two Node gate tree seeds (my very first seeds-logics seeds). The strangest things happened: I tilled the soil going SE, then planted going NW. After planting the square on which I planted both seeds reverted to grass (?) and the planted trees appeared one square due north of where the robot was (so one square ahead and one to the right of its path).

It's actually North and West of the planting spot whatever the direction the robot is going in.

Here's what I'm pretty sure happened:

Remember that old chest bug where [some] chests wouldn't' slurp in a certain direction? And the problem was: the chest was in one place on the ground (according to the database), but the chest image displayed 1-square over?

I'm pretty sure gate seeds (actually, "gate-growing-phase-1") does that.
I'm also pretty-sure that your gate-trees (possibly even a later phase) will appear in the place you thought (actually: you DID) you planted them.

But I have a bug to fix that. I'm also working with an artist to replace all this placeholder art. :)

P.S. Congrats on entering the farm-gates phase! I'm a little bit behind you (still working on steel.)

You're right the trees grew where I planted them, not where they were showing initally.

This is still happening. I also noticed a seed that seemed to be on the ground 3 rows away but that I picked up. I was dropped from the row I was in and I picked it up in that row, so I guess this is related.

Trees off-center: Right, I didn't adjust that as we're waiting on new art. If I get ahead of the list, I'll try to tweak the existing tree image so you don't have to wait on that.

Seeds off-center: Do you recall which seed that was? I kind of thought all of the seeds were in the right place.

(I really just need to make a unit-test button that lays out a grid of one of everything so I can check the position, eh? :) )

Thanks!

It was an iron tree seed I think.

Btw, all the final seed/tree images are in. If you see any off-center stuff for NEWLY PLANTED, let me know.

(I have an old LATCH tree that's off center, but that's because I saved my farm when it had the bad data. I could chop it down & replant, but I kind-a like it. ;) )
