I had a new instance of the Newspaper incorrectly reporting Missing Schnapps on an island where Schnapps isn't required, as previously reported in thread https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/149218/consumption-penalty-due-to-lack-of-schnapps-in-the-new-world/12?lang=en-US. Puerto Salmuera is a small island with only normal Jornalero housing. It has a Marketplace but no Hacienda. There is therefore no demand for Schnapps on this island. I was somewhat surprised to discover this problem still exists, because I thought it likely that it shared a common (or similar) root cause with the "Newspaper reports missing Lifestyle Goods even when paused" bug that has been resolved in GU15.1 (according to the release notes).

It seems therefore that taken with thread https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/179739/bug-newspaper-reports-still-no-market?lang=en-US, two out of the three bugs where the newspaper falsely reports something missing with a 10% consumption penalty still exist despite updates 15 and 15.1 being released since they were reported. It seems that the one introduced with GU15 was fixed, but not the other two from GU14.

A save file has been attached to a ticket (Kate Wilberforce No Schnapps)

Hey there everyone.

This is an issue our team is already aware of, and there is a workaround we know of that we would like for someone to try, to confirm if it still works on the current update.

  1. Build a single Jornelo Hacienda House on the affected island. If you already have multiple jornelos on the island, you will need to remove all of them but one to test this.
  2. Produce Schnapps on the same island, it will only ever be supplied to that one house.

Please let me know if this prevents that newspaper report from triggering.

Just the Jornelo for this workaround @Asterix201252. I would cry for and with you if it was all the normal houses as well.

And that does seem to be how the workaround is working though the teams are still investigating the whole situation. You could definitely try to import from another island, but I honestly have no idea whether that would work the same way. If you do try it, could you update me and let me know what happens?

No worries @Asterix201252,

In truth, you're doing us a favor by testing it and updating so take as long as you need. I really appreciate it. 💙
