FS#21709 - Fallowstone Cave corpse is marked as chest

The corpse of the Orc male (000457FD) in Fallowstone Cave has the BossContainer Location Reference Type selected on it, which causes radiant quests to place items in it, when it is normally a chest that is used. The Orc’s corpse should not have the BossContainer Location Reference Type selected on it. It should probably have the Container Location Reference Type selected on it instead, like the other Orc’s corpse (00039CFA) on the floor below does. There are two chests (0002064F and 000774C8) in Fallowstone Cave that should have one of their Location Reference Types set to BossContainer, instead of the Orc’s corpse. This is because the Orc’s corpse could fall through the floor, making it impossible to loot it and as a result, break radiant quests that send you to Fallowstone Cave to retrieve items from it.

Going to go ahead and confirm that this can be a potential issue based upon similar experiences in my game.

The Orc corpse was deliberately set as the "Boss Container" in this dungeon so we'd have to determine whether it's something that is appropriate for the patch to change or whether there's another way to avoid what you're describing from happening.

There was another potential issue with the Orc corpse being used as a boss container (reported in  FS#14846 ), but it was determined to be something that couldn't be fixed given the options available in the CK.

The reference numbers you provided are base objects, not the actual in-game placement. That's not helpful when trying to track down where these things actually are in the CK.

The dead Orc is 00096ea1.

The boss chest is 00096cfd. I would recommend using this one since it's just up the pathway after you kill the bosses.

The other boss chest (000c7404) is probably the one in Giant's Grove which I would imagine shouldn't be marked as a boss chest for radiant quest purposes.

There's one other chest (000c3349) in the dungeon. Can't use that one since it's only there during DA06.

Yes, 00096EA1, 00096CFD and 000C3349 are the Form IDs I meant to give.
