After I switched to MP unstable and back to normal unstable.


------------ dev edit
The Steam News release notes have now been updated to explain the change accidentally making its way into the multiplayer build earlier than we planned. Thanks everyone for bringing this to our attention.

Please refer to the link above on where to find your save files if you intend to switch back to (Un)stable from the Multiplayer branch.

Good god. I'm hella glad I have automatic updates disabled. Keeping terratech under a quarantine, no updating until I get proof that whatever is wrong with the update has been fixed. I'm also moving and copying my saves and snaps to a different folder, and keeping a second set in a zip.

I know that. I'm saying I'm keeping TT under a no automatic updates quarantine in steam remotely. Also, if you were already in multiplayer does it still delete everything even if you haven't just switched? Because in that case I may be too late..

OK!!! WEIRD UPDATE
I switched to MP again to confirm that it delete these folders and that is true.
BUT! I can see techs that where in folder "snapshots" when I am in multiplayer.... so that folder is moved somewhere... as if it is deleted completely I could not see my techs.

SO where they are?????

Apparently when trying to load the game crashes, said by someone else.
Oh wait.
"
  • Load Tech does not work yet. Trying to use it will crash the game." In the steam update thing. HUH. DDDDDDDDDRUMROLL

so that folder is moved somewhere... as if it is deleted completely I could not see my techs.
There's a "Cache" folder which contains temporary thumbnails of all the techs you've ever had in the "Snapshots" holder, along with the techs themselves (I think) as ".tdc" files. But they should only show up in game if the corresponding snapshot is also present in the other folder...

...Wait, so where had it moved them to? And do you have them back yourself now, too, @Nightblade Greyswandir?

I've tried direct messaging the TerraTech game Twitter account, as Zeena's been on there over weekends, previously. I don't think private forum messages would be picked up until next week (and I can't see @Adriano on Steam currently). Kris on Discord...?
