[kovarex] [0.17.31] Infinite range for manualy building rails

Post by MoeGraph » Sat Apr 13, 2019 10:26 am

It's now possible to build rails over a large distance even without robots and or material (rails) close by. Just place some radars and use the map. Start with the ghost version but then switch to manual mode.
I think the game still checks the distance at the start (clicking on a rail end.)
So with starting in ghost mode (shift-clicking), that step will be skipt.
And also something odd: You can't start with the manual mode over a large distance, even when you intend to continue with the ghost mode.

By the way, im think i will miss the function to avoid obstacles. Not for trees or rocks but for cliffs: Especially when starting with the rails, removing the cliffs is expensive (maybe you didn't even do the research for it.) Or you want them to stay because you like them. Or you don't have any with you.

And something more i have to get used to: I can no longer rotate rails clockwise. But i can live with that.

Thanks

Thanks for the report, this was a long time problem, so we just limited the manual building distance to be 3 times the normal building distance.

Fixed for 0.17.35
