Suggestion for Gates to Auto Drag over Rail when placing Wall

Post by Ubermidget2 »

What ?
When dragging wall, if you run over straight rail, Gates are placed automatically (If in your inventory already)
Similarly to how underground belts are seamlessly placed when dragging belt over an obstacle

Why ?
Just QoL.
This game has so much QoL - Let's add more

This could be nice to have.

EDIT: Days later, and I'm noticing I butchered the spelling of half my sentence. *mumbles something about hating touchscreen keyboards on phones*

Should be also possible with special types of underground and modable, to add for example street underground, which builds automatically gates when walled.

What is when you don’t have gates in inventory: IMHO it should be consequent and paint blueprints instead.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

Makes sense. A similar function already happens with belts when another object is obstructing.

Drag-building walls over rails when gates are present in the player's inventory should place a rail gate

Rotation of gate derived from rail direction, if rail isn't straight then building won't occur(?)
