this kinda makes me laugh… the cause is most likely due to how buildings “merge” together when they’re still ghosts, but it probably shouldn’t be merging with completed buildings…

Maybe some sort of ‘cutting’ tool is needed? I for one would love to be able to cut an archway into a wall instead of being forced to use a door.

This is also a problem if you click Undo in the planner after two separate ghost plans are connected with a wall.

edit: now that I’m not on my phone I’ll clarify a bit; if you’re building, say, an archway, in the planner, and you plot out each separate column on the arch, then connect them, then realize you did it wrong and click “undo”, one of the two entire columns will go POOF

Thanks for the reports! Investigating…
