[0.17.24] Mining drill placement wrong not-buildable message

Post by Gummiente27 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 12:37 pm

(The ghost icon is just coming from the screenshot shortcut)

The placing error message is: drill cannot mine this resource.

If i try to place the mining drill one block upwards or one block to the left the error message is: drill not above resource.
If i try to place the mining drill one block downwards or one block to the right it gets placed.

Similar behaviour with the coal consuming drill.

This is not the only place where it happens, it happens at many places where the mining drill is tried to be placed "near" a resource.

Thanks for the report however I don't understand what you're referring to. In your screenshot one tile down or one tile to the right would be over resources and would be valid to build the drill.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

I know, that is also completely ok, I included that behaviour because this removes the possbility of some unmineable ore or something like that (if such thing exists) being at the bottom-right edge of the drill. Should've added that thaat part is not a bug.
