Summary: Strange template placement when being placed against existing building.
This has been around for a long time, but I’ve gotten along with a workaround until now. Might as well report it if it has not been reported yet.
When placing templates which touches existing built buidlings, there is 50% chance that it will not be placed on the ground, even if there are no other things blocking it. Instead, it is placed at an elevation as if the top floor of the existing building is aligned with the foundation of the template being placed.
One strange thing is that if I rotate the template 180 degrees and used another side to touch the existing building, there seems to be no problem.
The workaround I have is simply to have 2 versions of every template, where one version is created from a copy of an original template, but with everything “rotated” 180 degrees (by manual editing)
Steps to reproduce:
- Build an existing building
- Place a new template against the building. observe. remove.
- Place the same template against the same building, but rotated 180 degrees.
50% of the time. If it appears ok, then redoing with the template rotated 180 degrees will yield the problem.
