  • A21 Trader POIs & Other POIS not spawning in worlds (both pregen and RWG)

    • Version: A21 (b313)

    Summary: After updating from A20.7 to A21 (b313), every game world I created had no trader POIs, whether the game was using a RWG seed, or a pregenerated world, including Navezgane. I tried PREGEN10K and PREGEN6K and Navezgane, but every game spawned with no trader POIs. I verified this in the world editor by loading each world and searching for trader POIs, and none existed on the map. I uninstalled the game, reinstalled the game, and wiped all existing data using the launcher. There are no mods installed either before or after this troubleshooting step. I installed the game directly to A21 beta and was able to reproduce the bug: no trader POIs were found on the map. I then reverted to A20.7 stable and created a new game on PREGEN6K, and the trader spawned as expected. I then re-updated the game to a21 (b313) experimental and started a new game on Navezgane, nd no trader POIs were generated.

    Game Version: (A21 b313)

    EAC on or off? ON


    Status: NEW


    Bug Description: I started a new SP game on Navezgane, and the attached log is the result of that attempt. On line 491, it reads the following: 

    2023-06-13T20:42:25 117.757 INF Loaded world file from different version: 'Alpha 21 (b306)'. After this line, error messages begin appearing concerning the missing POIs. I have verified that the version of my game reads a21 (b313) in the upper right of the title screen.


    Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:

    1) Install the game via Steam

    2) Create a standard game 

    3) complete the beginning quests to unlock the location of the trader POI


    Actual result: (description of what is occurring)

    Several POIs requiring assets introduced after (b306) are being skipped upon world generation, and new games are being created without the new POIs


    Expected result: (what you expect to occur)

    my version of the game should be loading all a21 (b313) POIs


    In a related note, I also run a dedicated 7 Days to Die dedicated server on a separate PC in my home for myself and my friends. That install is installed and updated manually via steamcmd. I created a new install in a fresh directory and updated it to -beta latest_experimental and created a game server. The world generated on that server works as expected, and all new POIs were generated.
