I had this issue too.

Captured this issue for investigation. Thank you for the report!


is not an exploit to destroy pillars to save wood?
why then just not only add on IU the option to build a cheapear wall without pillars?


Right now it’s a trade-off between using more wood or using more APM. Would be kind of boring to remove that and lower the player skill cap.

I’ve experienced this too, with a variety of buildings. I haven’t experimented much, but I noticed that I can press the left/right arrow key on my keyboard to switch between yes and no. Sometimes the default is yes, other times no.

there is not any reason to build a more expensive wall and that is less useful, takes 1 sec to save 100 wood, its a must. Any player needs to learn to do it in 1 sec

Is there any progress on this? It seems like a super easy thing to fix and yet hasn’t been fixed since release.


bumping this because it is still an issue

I’ve seen it happens with some buildings, and not with others, which make me thinks it maybe is done to prevent accidental deletion of important buildings, but I’d need to check to confirm
