Steps to reproduce:

  • Start a server with a map with lots of trees (the likeliness of the bug happening increases with the number of trees)
  • Connect to server with client
  • On the client, switch to the public player and click the "step year" button multiple times
Result on the server:

The bug might also happen in single player, but I could not reproduce it there.


It could be the following flow of steps:
- objlist_t::check_season puts a dying tree into to_remove list
- another tree on this tile spawns some saplings, some of them land on the same tile
- now the dying tree has a higher index than before and is processed by objlist_t::check_season again -> double free
It seems to have noting to do with networking (?)

Maybe this can be provoked by setting sx=sy=0 in tree_builder_t::spawn_tree_near
