    Howdy,

    Sometimes, when you try to equip a tool, it immediately unequips again. I have no reliable repro for it, but it seems mostly to happen with torches and ropes and usually right after you connected to a server, but also, more rarely mid-game.
    I am also not sure if this is only a thing on servers, but to fix it you'd have either dump the tool in a chest or whatever and put it back in your inventory or equip a different tool; just remapping it to the toolbar does not work.

    Cheers

    I can almost always get it to occur by holding the torch, then immediately equipping a hammer or stone axe. Then unequip the axe (and torch) by pressing ~ or 0. Then grab the torch again. It flickers on and then off.

    You can also do it by grabbing the torch, then also hold the stone axe, then press unequip all with ~. Then grab the torch again.

    It happens less often the more research you do (I think). So it would be very early game for sure.

    If you pull something like a cart or so with rope, then try equip torch it will just unquip. So you have to equip something else like a hammer then you can try the torch. Happens all the time after pulling something!

    I feel it's quite random. no 100% reproduction.
    Generally i solve it by:
    • trying to equip something else then the tool I want > that tool will equip. Then select again the tool you wanted to use
    • or by droppnig the tool from inventory and picking it up again.

    I haven't seen this problem with any other handheld item except the torch - it will automatically unequip.

    Lately I've got similar issues when equiping hammer axe or showel, after placing a block. the tools just auto-unequips, need to select to hold another block then the one I placed in hand first, then it allows me to select the tool... but it's not a persistent error, it randomly happens

    Well still trying to find a good repro for this issue but it does not seem to be happening anymore on our internal branch.

    I am adding my +1 that this happens to me as described by the OP, but with my hammer. My workaround is to select another tool, and then re-select my hammer. It doesn't matter which toolbar my hammer is in. I'm guessing it's some disconnect between the server and client.

    I can also reproduce this by holding just the torch and exiting the instance then joining back in. The torch won't be equipped and when you try, it just flickers off. You have to equip something else before the torch will stay equipped.
