How to retreive information about entity contained inside ghost

Post by Omnifarious »

How do I discover what other power poles a ghost pole is connected to? It seems like it's very hard get to any but the most superficial information about the entity contained within a ghost.

It looks like this might answer my question. And the answer would be "No", but here are a whole bunch of hacks to get around it. I'll see if there's a way that works for what I want to do. But if anybody else has any better ideas or knows differently, I'd really appreciate knowing.

Accessing "ghost" circuit connections

Edit: Unfortunately, I don't think it would. I could .revive() the ghost on placement, note which entities it wired up the copper cable to, then on-the-fly create a blueprint that included the appropriate circuit wires, remove the entity, and place the blueprint. That's an awful lot of work, and would probably look and sound very strange.
