Money stuck on corner of the map ?

Postby alx » Wed Sep 26, 2012 8:41 pm

Stays here at all zoom levels and when scrolling (disappears when corner of the map isn't displayed).
I didn't notice when it first appeared.

I saw this too. Seems to be there all the time, from what I've noticed.

Just started a new game. It's not there.

I've seen it in every game thus far, and even after quitting and starting it again.

You're right, it's not always there, but once it appears it seems to never go away.

Spent some time playing with it, but couldn't pin it down. I started a new game and played for over an hour before it appeared, but I didn't catch what caused it.

I've experienced this across three different prisons as well. I checked the save files of each of them and found that something under Construction was causing the issues.

Code: Select all

BEGIN Construction
    BEGIN Jobs       
        Size                 4 
        BEGIN "[i 0]"     
            Type                 -1 
            Material             17 
            PosX                 0 
            PosY                 0 
            SizeX                0 
            SizeY                0 
            OrY                  1.00000 
            Status               1 
            Cost                 -30 
            Speed                100.000 
            BEGIN "[i 0]"      x 35  y 49  END
        END
        BEGIN "[i 1]"     
            Type                 -1 
            Material             17 
            PosX                 0 
            PosY                 0 
            SizeX                0 
            SizeY                0 
            OrY                  1.00000 
            Status               1 
            Cost                 -30 
            Speed                100.000 
            BEGIN "[i 0]"      x 35  y 49  END
        END
        BEGIN "[i 2]"     
            Type                 -1 
            Material             17 
            PosX                 0 
            PosY                 0 
            SizeX                0 
            SizeY                0 
            OrY                  1.00000 
            Status               1 
            Cost                 -30 
            Speed                100.000 
            BEGIN "[i 0]"      x 35  y 49  END
        END
        BEGIN "[i 3]"     
            Type                 -1 
            Material             17 
            PosX                 0 
            PosY                 0 
            SizeX                0 
            SizeY                0 
            OrY                  1.00000 
            Status               1 
            Cost                 -30 
            Speed                100.000 
            BEGIN "[i 0]"      x 35  y 49  END
        END
    END
END

On this save file, the number 30 was showing on the top left corner of the map and never disappeared. To remedy this issue, I copied

Code: Select all

BEGIN Construction
    BEGIN Jobs       Size 0  END
END

from a new save file and pasted it over the old code. This got rid of the number. I'm not sure if this solution is safe, or what would happen if you cleared the Construction jobs when any workmen are constructing a foundation/object/whatever. To be safe, I made sure the workmen's job queues were clear before doing this.

Unfortunately I don't know what causes this. I tried buying furniture and then immediately cancelling their installation, buying them while paused, saving the game right after buying furniture, or combinations thereof, but I was unable to determine what caused it.
