[0.13.6] Rail planner and Ghost rail planner disagree

Post by CaptainFord »

The save file is here: save

When planning out a rail line through a forest, I ran into an issue where a particular tree is causing strange discrepancies. Basically the problem is that I can place a straight rail just fine if I do it manually or with the basic rail planner, but when using the ghost rail planner it doesn't think the tile is passable, and all I get is a red X unless I hold down shift.

Here we can see that a straight rail can be placed passing by the tree:

But I can't place a curved rail towards the tree...

Image

And I ALSO can't place a curved rail facing away from the tree!

Image

And when I use the ghost rail planner instead, it won't even plot the straight path!

Image

Conclusion: Whatever method the ghost rail planner is using to detect collision is inconsistent with the one used for manual placement.

I probably shouldn't be allowed to place that horizontal rail at all. The first train coming through will probably hit it anyway.
