FIXED: Shelving books in TV library bug

Post by verne » Tue Jul 07, 2020 8:01 pm

While shelving books sometimes the library does not recognize that it is the correct location, though other times it does, happens more often in the west three locations. Here is one log of a book that i have previously shelved in this location but it does not work. To make certain, I still double checked every room in the library and it would not shelve in any location, and since it can't be shelved then nobody can take another book from the bookshelf until that one fades away.

The First Depository
Giant shelves of tomes are sandwiched against one another, each resting
atop a number of parallel tracks set into the floor. Each monstrous shelf
has a wooden device that resembles a ship's wheel sticking out of its end.
Repeated turnings of the wheel will slide that shelf and all those next to
it a span in either direction. This process opens up aisles between
formerly impenetrable stacks, allowing access to the books within. A sign
mounted on the end shelf indicates the content of the shelves.

Have you turned the wheel/handle to open the shelves?

Hello all,
I have seen a new way this error presents. I can shelve a book without turning the wheel, but it still says the wheel needs to be turned. It is only a small thing, but it is an error. It doesn't prevent

The First Depository
The twin walls of enormous bookcases encircling the room meet at the
northern wall. An aisle is open between two bookcases to the south, but the
wooden controlling wheels set into their ends turn easily to allow the
shelves to slide left or right along tracks laid into the floor. The
compression of the aisles allows a much larger number of books to be stored
in limited space. The only exit is back along the shelves to the south. A
small sign printed over the shelves provides a list of their contents.

That's only a bug in that it displays the "turn the wheel" message. It will always say that for the books that belong in those rooms without needing to turn the wheel.

This is fixed. You now have to turn the wheel to open the aisle in order to shelve a book.
