b Non-recoverable error: New interface add_blacklist_name attempts to index into uninitialized table global.blacklist_names.

1 year, 1 month ago

I'm currently playing a heavily-modded game (85 mods, including AngelBobs and AAI structures/vehicles). Upon updating all mods, including LTN from 1.10.8 to 1.10.9 and PickerDollies from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1, attempting to load a saved game fails with a stack traceback (and auto-blames the failure on LTN):

69.823 Error AppManagerStates.cpp:1398: The mod LTN - Logistic Train Network caused a non-recoverable error.
Please report this error to the mod author.

Error while running event LogisticTrainNetwork::on_load()

I don't know Lua well, but it doesn't appear to me that there's anything wrong with Optera's call to your new add_blacklist_name function. It appears to me that add_blacklist_name() is trying to index into blacklist_names before create_global_blacklist() initializes global.blacklist_names as an empty table.

Adding the 3 lines
"if not global.blacklist_names then
global.blacklist_names = {}
before line 33 in control.lua resolved the issue, but I doubt that's the proper way to fix this. I don't know whether the right way to address this is by modifying code in Picker Dollies, or whether Optera should add Picker Dollies as an optional dependency to LTN.

Adding the optional dependency "?PickerDollies >= 1.0.1" to LTN (without modifying PickerDollies) also resolved the issue. I will submit a bug report to Optera.

Anyone else who runs into this error should be able to work around it (until it's patched) by keeping LTN at version 1.10.8.

I think LTN could add this in on_configuration_changed ['PickerDollies'] and forgo the dependency check all together.
