That bug was once super common but then was pronounced fixed by the developers and for quite a while after I did not see it but then on the 7th of November I saw it reappear. I am 100% certain that there were 9 skulls in the hold but, of course, I didn’t expect to see this bug again and never thought of taking the pre-port screenshot, such things can easily be faked anyway so I don’t see the value. Thus far it’s the only instance I’ve noted of that bug recurring after the supposed fix. I recon that @Truecrash simply thinks that I am either a troll or mistaken which I just have no answer for. It is certain that this is a bug and it does still exist, the crew I had on those 2 runs also experienced it and most are on Forums so they could corroborate my story. Since I do a lot of sailing I believe this bug is now quite rare but definitely not gone.I am pretty curious about the loot skull chest thing as well! I never put much thought into it, but I think you're right about getting less skulls than what the cargo hold says. tbf you're kind of using anecdotal evidence though claiming that it's bugged with one screen shot; however, I would be interested in testing your hypothesis. We could compare the gold we get from a bunch of loot runs with skull chests, without them, how many skulls, etc.. Would be as simple as taking a screen shot before porting and after- are you down, @Eric Sailcutter ? Methinks it's just good/bad luck, but am curious to see!
