Reminder sent to: Kaet

Did you copy over raws from a 0.34.01 or a save created in 0.34.01?

This world was made in the new version.
Only thing not vanilla is I use Mayday graphics.
I might have copied some raws to put the graphics pack on the newer version before mayday did it himself.
Not sure if that might be it.

that could be the cause, graphic sets and tile sets arnt too hard to install manually really but it does involve editing init.txt

Xotano, this doesn't have anything to do with init.txt.

Kaet, I downloaded your save and yeah, your raws (specifically your c_variation_default.txt) are the 0.34.01 version. Since this bug was caused by a problem in the raws, using old raws means you re-introduced the bug into your installation. You can probably fix this in your current save by overwriting that file with the 0.34.02 version of the file. There's a small chance that could mess up your save, but since it's already on DFFD, you can re-download it if something goes wrong.
