I haven't seen this behavior.
I actually saw this once in 40d.
In this case it was two floodgates linked to a lever.
one floodgate was blocked by a tower cap
when the lever was pulled to close the gates, one was blocked by a tower cap so didn't close, the other appeared not to close either, but still blocked water anyhow.
I have used floodgates in 0.31.01 and 0.31.02 and have not noticed any problems with them closing on water. And yes, I can see them closed, they're always muddy brown from the water. So what. that's what they're designed to do, they work for me. So what else is going on here ?
so I ask questions...
Is anything blocking the floodgate?
is it linked to other floodgates or objects?
is anything blocking them ?
And another angle to consider... I've seen black tiles from some combinations of contaminants.
Are there any contaminants in the tile with the floodgate? mud? blood? stone?
Please reopen this report or PM me on the forums if the bug is still present in 0.34.02+.
