:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


A lot of times people have weird holes in their house/building walls, and don’t know where went wrong. I just discovered that in certain conditions, the preview of placement for most buildings are in the wrong place, ie, not the place where they are built.

Take the (4,4) tile from the right corner in scenario Jadwiga 4. It is part of a slope on both x and y directions. (Click to see examples in screenshots)

If we hover a wall placement, everything is correct.

If we prepare an outpost in the same location, it's dislocated to tile (5,3)

After the outpost foundation is placed, location is correct.

After the outpost is built

If we use a house, even if the house is built, the location is still buggy

Hover (buggy)

Foundation (not buggy)


Compare with adjacent grids

The issue for houses persists on a one directional slope as well
