    Title: stinging tree hollow - unexplained bald spot
    Reproduction Rate: 1/?
    Blocker? no
    Details: there's a spot with no underbrush at 0,0 for no reason i can discern. there's no visible deco or lawnmower pavers. checking an empty version attached to hometown showed no such bald spot, so maybe this is clearing from deco that's happening in the wrong place?

    [Verified] Checked in Krabneveir, Falling Waters Fortress, Flowing Waters Forest and Duanor. Coincidence? Could be... but... it's a large count of towns for it.

    this is caused by a: things that have grass-clearing capabilities that are b: placed on pavers. in the case of stinging tree hollow, it was shogun castle wall sections and blue stall awnings on crafted stone pavers and roadway sections. since the paver is already clearing the ground under it, the game doesn't seem to know what to do with the clearing from the wall/awning and so diverts it.

    it does not take a restart to clear the problem once it exists: pick up the offending item (can do it from the deco palette so you can see the bald spot as you do it) and the bald spot will clear.

    it DOES, however, require an exit to menu and resume to see the problem being caused. stand with a view of 0,0, put down a giant cobblestone paver off to the side, put a blue stall awning on it, exit to menu, resume (whether or not you wait for the full menu): new bald spot.
