So I came across what appears to be a bug earlier today. I didn't have the foresight to take screenshots but my factionmate I was talking to at the time did (thanks plscks!)

So I wanted to free up space in the faction safe. I saw how many spellgems we had of each type and wanted to shed some weight. I was using the "discard item" feature during all of this and found a couple things. First, if you choose a number higher than you have actual items to discard, the higher number you chose is displayed in the safe log.

The more concerning bug is that the safe seemingly reports an incorrect number of items. I'll explain. The safe (both in the retrieve spell dropdown and the discard item dropdown) reported that there was one small brown gem of seeking hand with 1 charge. I dropped this gem 4 times and it was still there. The odd thing was that the space kept freeing up in the safe each time I dropped it. This is when I messaged Richard Feynman. He tried to drop it and it finally disappered from the safe.

He began testing some stuff and dropped a few things and found that the higher number you choose to drop is reported in the safe log as mentioned earlier. I then dropped a small white spellgem and it dissappeared. It's at this point that he thought to take some screenshots and document what was happening:


This is before I tried to drop another gem. The safe shows two small orange seeking hand gems with one charge. Safe reports 757 space used.




I tried to recreate the effect with a small white gem first but that discard worked as it should bringing the safe to 756 space used. I then tried with the orange seeking hand gem shown above.



This shows me discarding the small orange gem at 01:18:29.




This is the safe log showing the discard.




This is after the discard.



As you can see the safe is still reporting 2 of the small orange seeking hand gems and the safe is now at 755 space used. Clearly a gem was discarded but the safe still reports the same number of them.


Also, just to show the incorrect reporting in the safe log this screen shows the safe log when Richard Feynman discarded the 2 books as seen in the first screenshot above at 01:11:25



Thank you all for taking the time to read this report!

This all took place in the University of Science Friction - Adventurer Edition safe. I experimented a bit more with this, here is what I found.


I chose to mess with Small Orange Gems specifically, here was our stock of them before I did anything.




There are 8 of them:
USF Safe - Stock of Small Orange Gems wrote:
Seeking Hand - Small Orange Gem, 1 shots (1)
Guided Blade - Small Orange Gem, 2 shots (1)
Reveal - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (1)
Guided Blade - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (1)
Reveal - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (1)
Guided Blade - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (3)



I chose to Discard the Guided Blade - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (3). I selected the quantity of 10 as per this selection:




It removed 6 gems according to the message log:




Here is our complete stock of Small Orange Gems currently:




So that means that these gems were discarded:
USF Safe - Gems Actually Discarded wrote:
Reveal - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (1)
Guided Blade - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (1)
Reveal - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (1)
Guided Blade - Small Orange Gem, 4 shots (3)



So it seems that though it organizes the gems by spell and color, it seems to group them together by color and then by some other means as well. It then discards a number of gems of the color you have selected. Long and short here for the time being, if you care about the spelgems in your safe do not attempt to discard spellgems with the free for leaders discard button!!!, as it may remove random gems of the same color, but a different spell.

Looking at the RRF safe it seems to me that it sorts the list in question by colour and then number of charges. It appears to ignore the spell name for sorting and discarding, which is why Plscks discarded all the orange gems with 4 charges

We believe that this bug has now been solved. Given how hazardous it is, let us know if you encounter it again.
