[0.12.10] [kovarex] ghost gates & placed gates are treated differently

Post by Twisted_Code »

If a player wishes to place a blueprint where part of it is a gate that would be over an already placed gate (or gate bp ghost), the preview will show the gate as red as if the bp gate is a different entity type than the placed one, and the player will have to force blueprint placement. The issue is that it's a counterintuitive exception to the rule that blueprints can be placed overlapping entities of the same type.

How did this bug even happen anyway? Seems to me one of you must've done something really silly.

The code for buildability checks is actually quite complicated. And there are reasons for it as the logic is compliated.

Sounds like a good topic for a FF :) It's better than it was, still complicated but better.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

I'd be interested in such an FF, because frankly, I can't understand how it's so complicated. If the two objects are the same and oriented the same, the blueprint should ignore it. If the two objects are fast-replace compatible, the blueprint should build over the old one. What more is there to it?
Edit: speaking of which, today is Friday... and it looks like you explained it in today's post.
