Simultaneous scaffold + finished building on edge of fog

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • BUILD #: 41855
  • PLATFORM: Steam
  • OS: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

A building seen during and after construction will display both the scaffolding and the finished building if it’s on the edge of your line of sight.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

Not sure I’ve encountered the exact setup below till now. It’s somewhat rare, but for all I know it may lead to the effect 100% of the time.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Before you have a market, have an ally build a building out of your line of sight.
  2. [Probably irrelevant] Move a unit until the builder is in sight, but not the foundation.
  3. Move until both foundation and builder are in sight. Not the whole foundation, but just a corner, such that the game reveals the whole shape to you even though your line of sight doesn’t extend to the farther edge.
  4. [Probably irrelevant] Move until the foundation is in sight, but not the builder.
  5. Move until both are out of sight.
  6. When the building is done, return so that it’s just on the edge of your sight.

Now, as long as you’re viewing just the corner that you viewed in step 3, you will see the double scaffold + building. If the whole building is in sight, it’ll appear normal. This effect doesn’t reset; from then on, you can see the effect come and go as your line of sight does.
