0003643: Dead soldier's equipment bugs up
So yeah. After a soldier dies, most of his equipment becomes unusable. New soldiers that I assign don't pick up the dead guy's old equipment. I make new gauntlets for example, they pick them up. I forbid new gauntlets, they don't use the dead guy's ones at the stockpile.

Doesn't always happen. I had two dead soldiers, the other's equipment was used by his replacement but the other's equipment was and still is stuck on the stockpile.
Armor several soldiers

Get them killed

Get the same number of replacement soldiers, watch some of them not pick up their share of the old armor/watch the equipment become unusable.
Save coming soon.
No tags attached.

I can't edit the report for some reason. I should have changed reproducibility "always" to "sometimes" as it doesn't always happen.

^ Done.

A report like this is much more helpful if it includes a save. Please upload one to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and post the link here.

Here is the save.

http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=3424 [^]

Make some random dwarf soldier and give him gauntlets and boots. (the stockpile is in the barracks next to entrance. Save is very slightly modded by giving nerves a heal rate)

Repeat if there are spare armor pieces until they won't pick up certain ones.
2010-11-16 14:04   
Actually, you can already see it there. The dwarf "ad2" is in the barracks without a left gauntlet, while a spare one from a dead soldier is lying in the stockpile next to him.

Have you checked out the save yet?
2010-11-18 13:13   
If you're talking to me, no. The save is for Toady's benefit when he gets to equipment bugs.
2010-11-18 15:45   
Ah, okay.
2012-03-20 19:48   
Toady may need an up-to-date save (0.34.02+) to fix this problem. It would be helpful for someone to upload a save to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and post the link here.

I never encountered this bug with provided steps to reproduce, in multiple games starting from 31.25, but after loading 31.18 save in 31.18 I confirm that healthy soldier refuses to equip available gauntlet.
