[0.10.0] Ghost building no longer works

Post by Madd_Mugsy »

In 0.98, I used to plan out my base by holding shift and clicking items everywhere, creating ghost images of them, and letting me plan out my layout effectively.

In 0.10, this no longer works and just plays the placement thud sound multiple times in a row, without placing the selected object.

To reproduce: Start a new game. Select your furnace. Hold shift and click somewhere.

Tried it, works just fine. Needs to be researched (construction robotics).

What? Aw. That's a lame change :-( Oh well...

Is that something that changed in the exe? Or is there a way I can re-enable it in the lua script?

Well, it works in my .9.8 version for some reason.

It is a nice planning mode, so I don't need to tear down everything if I end up off by a square or two.

Oh yes, you were right. Mea culpa...

But still then, just a (disliked) feature than a bug

Disliked by some I suppose... I managed to add it back in via the lua though, so I'm happy :)
