HI @Aijah2211 

 

can you confirm that it's the same as in the linked thread ?

 

If not, could you post a picture ?

Hello Crinrict! Thank you for your answer. I don't think this is the same problem as linked.

 

My Problem is, that all of the ornaments only make Bubbles. The steaming one should only make some steam/fog...

 

Also sometimes they "pop out" a little bit of steam wich rises to heaven (you can see this in the 3rd picture) :D

like a special effect...

@Aijah2211 I see this in my game as well and will add it to our list.

I've been having this problem forever as well. I've looked everywhere, even pulled out CC and any mods I had and nada. Nothing I do fixes, so I'm 100% sure it's not me.It's getting frustrating because I have witchy builds that use the steam vents and they're all nonfunctional.

I've had the same problem for months, but what I figured out is the steam/mist does appear, but it acts like the bubbles and just flies away into the sky every once in a while so you see it briefly. I miss having the steam/mist so much.

@rottenmeier I mixed up two threads. It was another issue they fixed.

Kinda wanted to pump this up again, the bug is still there! 
I just realised that there are supposed to be two different types of emitters: steam and bubble and they have very different styles so you can visually tell them apart from each other even without looking at the description. (The ones made from stone are supposed to emit bubbles AND steam, the ones that have a grid are supposed to emit ONLY steam)

 

Tried to do a spooky halloween build but it's kinda hard trying to create that mysterious foggy vibe when the steam emitters only produce bubbles*. Especially now with the new pack coming I hope this gets fixed ASAP. I'd love the hot springs to be surrounded by steam, not bubbles. Disappointed And I hope those effects are kept separate in the future so that you can choose either steam or bubbles! 

 

(* and yes, once in a while I notice some steam producing that immediately disappears but if it's a steam emitter I would need it to continually produce steam and Only steam)
