Build preview mode automatically enabled upon reload

Title: Build preview mode enabled upon reload

Summary: When reloading a game, unfinished houses will be shown in full as they occur within the build preview mode, even though the player did not select this mode after loading or even before saving, and the bar nor the window is shown. If the build preview mode is actively selected and then closed again, this resets. This was mentioned earlier in another bug report, but here’s an actual report for this issue itself.

Steps to reproduce: Just save while having one or more houses built, and load. It seems fairly consistent, for me.


It’s obvious (and my mouse cursor points it out for those for whom it was somehow not, yet) from the first fifteen seconds of the video, both the problem and the ‘workaround’.
