TDM 2.10 - COS3 rats extermination side mission - can't lift rats to drop bucket

Hello again TDM crew.

I am running TDM 2.10  beta / 64 #9627 and the map is Chronicles of Skullduggery 3 (COS3) Sacricide.

When I do the rats extermination side mission, I can kill the rats, but, I cannot frob and lift the bodies up into the drop bucket.  I can frob and slide the bodies around the floor, but, they just seem to stay at floor level no matter what I do.

This is not an issue in 2.09 release.  I played both versions to verify the bug as it is easy to recreate.

To quickly recreate:
1) start the mission standing in your "delivery" box.  2)  immediately go North from spawn point into the alley to the side-job notes on the wall and read the one about the rats to gain the objective.  3)  go south back to your start point.  4)  go east in the  to the opening in the ground leading to the rats in the basement.  5)  shoot a rat with an arrow.  6)  attempt to frob and lift it to the drop bucket but the rat stays at the floor.

I could create a vid if requested.

I just saw this exact thing was noted  by the COS author Bienie here, so I guess it is already known.

 

I set the cvar
   tdm_drag_new 0
to revert the drag functionality and was able to frob and lift rats.

Lifting rats is quite essential... it adds "kick" to life.

Thanks!

Indeed, this occurred to me randomly yesterday, that CoS 3 would be a problem in the current 2.10 beta. I got it figured out differently for CoS 0 now at least! Fingers crossed that this bugfix makes the final release of 2.10.

Kind of hilarious that the rat dragging is such a thing in your missions. 😁

Yes it's kind of a running theme through the CoS missions. It was borne out of my frustration with rats in TDM, they are great for setting atmosphere but a total nuisance for the mapper. They get stuck everywhere and can block doors etc. 🤪 kill 'em all I say!

      While I did find Springheel's brushwork pretty questionable, I guess engine performance must also have come a long way during the recent five years, because I can safely say that the kind of performance issues that he's talking about in this video, just didn't happen to me when I fully opened up my basement with all its unoptimized brushwork. The framerate was capped at a nice 60 FPS no matter how I tried, and with visportals on top of this, and the complexities turned into "func_static":s, an uncapped framerate would just be obscene, at least for graphics cards only a few years old. I no longer have any worries about large areas and vistas - I'll just go nuts. It's gonna be fine.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.
