Ghost buildings

Ideas, that are too old (too much things changed) or won't be implemented cause of some reasons or if there are obvious better suggestions.

Ghost buildings

Post by TNSe »

I was wondering if it would be possible to add the following functionality when interacting with the ghost buildings:

Left mouse: When clicking on a ghost building, the game will place that building from your inventory.
Right mouse: When clicking on a ghost building, the game will remove that ghost building.

Can you explain the (consistent) logic behind it working like that?

For me the "right" button is associated with placing.
Having it remove a thing instead of placing it would be really confusing.

Well, and my opinion is: left click = anything, right click = abort.
But well, many game have another system, also factorio. ^^

If we do it, it should be clearly:
The build button (default to right click) to build it
The mine button (default to left click) to remove it.
