[kovarex] [1.1.19] Drag belt building goes underground under nothing when out of reach

Post by Operator »

Hello,

AS:
OOR = Out Of Reach

Description :
When placing belt by one-line dragging, going out of reach then come back to reachable after moving the player can place underground belt under tiles "missed" while out of reach.

Reproduce method:
0 - (During whole operation, get belt in hand and maintain left-click)
1 - Drag a belt until 1 tile out of reach => Place reachable belts then nothing (OOR)
2 - Move player 2 to 5 tiles same direction (4-length underground belt in inventory) => nothing (still OOR)
3 - Move cursor 1 tile back to get in reachable zone => Place underground belt on missing portions
Figure: Reproduce method

Expected behavior:
- Either don't place missing belt (those tried to place while OOR), or place "overground" belt as no entity avoid it.

PS:
I hope it can help you making this game even better, and keep up your good work!

Operator.

Thanks for the report, it was general problem related to building out of reach and then moving, which sometimes worked and sometimes didn't.
Fixed for the next version.
