I was playing with my friend on a world we had stopped playing on since Oct 2nd, due to the interaction bug, and had issues saving the game (likely related to the saving crashes others are reporting). After he closed his application due to freezing on save and reloaded the game (he is the host) he noticed his entire inventory, tool belt slots and all, had been wiped. We tried many fixes and searched around for the lost items but to no avail. We reloaded a previous version from a PS plus cloud save, then he noticed that certain items in his inventory could not be interacted with. He had an item in one of his slots he couldn’t move to a box, drop, or hold in his hand. This is all what he told me so some of this could be erroneous, but the inventory wipe was definitely caused by the weird saving bug. To note, I was the non-host coop player and had no issues personally with my inventory. However, I was kicked out of the game when we tried saving. This was around day 10 and happened after the update to fix the interaction problem. I wish I could provide more information but I’m working off of what I was told.
Everything was set to default
It happened randomly during one of the times we attempted to save but couldn’t due to the saving bug.
-Have you tried reloading your save, game or console?
Yes, didn’t work.
-Have you tried clearing the cache of the console by shutting down for 2 mins before rebooting?
No, we stopped playing after bugs started in the reloaded cloud save.
-Is there anything else you tried to alleviate the issue? Please let us know whether it was successful or not.
We tried all that we could but the items were seemingly lost forever.
