Revealed artifacts in fog of war become invisible and have to be discovered again after reload.

This will be one to look into again in 2018 but If possible some extra clarification would be appreciated. The artifacts in question are the artifacts that your workers carry back to the archive as opposed to the ones on the second Heart of Gold level? How were they revealed originally, the fog of war is meant to hide things again as time passes but it sounds as though something peculiar is happening here.

Regulart artifacts on a custom map. My creatures revealed them.

Could they have originally been random artefacts (The ones placeable in the map editor which spawn as a random one each time), this could be an unexpected case where they have been removed but can still be spawned via that randomness?

Any type of artifact.

This needs further review from QA in 2018.

Confirmed this behaviour. Simple to replicate:


1. Launch a map such as Smoulder

2. Reveal the map

3. Go to a revealed artifact

4. Hide the Map - Note that the Artefact is still visible

5. Save - Load

6. The Artefact will no longer be visible


This is playing with the default fog of war mutator on Smoulder.

This bug still exists. Level 2 of the heart of gold expension: I've claimed 3 artifacts (booby trap, gold, papa pig), quicksaved, quit the game. After reloading the artifacts (floating orbs on the shrine) are no longer visible but I'm still being "urged" to click on them, the research was complete etc.
