Building removal leaves area useless

Removing a building leaves a non-buildable area

  1. Build something
  2. remove it, it ‘explodes’ and leaves a rectangular hole in the ground
  3. try to build or do anything on the same spot and it doesn’t, hearthlings walk around it like there’s something there.

Expected Results:
The building gets removed by the hearthlings by tearing it down and recycling the bits. I can put something else in it’s place.

Actual Results:
Leaves a world hole area in town that you can’t do anything with

Hey there @Darren_Ballingall, welcome to the Discourse :smiley:!

Sorry to hear about the building issue, let me get some additional information from you.

You mentioned your running the latest version - can you please give the exact version number? There are currently 2 public versions depending on your steam branch settings - so specificity is important.

Also, can you please upload the affected save game, and provide details (a screenshot will likely work well) of where the “bad” building location is?

To upload a save, locate the folder in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth\saved_games (assuming a default Steam install), zip the individual save’s folder (not the entire saved_games folder), and upload it. If the *.zip is less than 10 MB, feel free to upload it directly to the Discourse. If larger, please upload it to a cloud storage site like Dropbox, Google Drive, File Dropper, etc. and post the sharing link here.

Hi jomaxro, (5.4 MB)

Here is my save file. The empty rectangle in the center of town is the area in question (it’s hard to miss)

(sorry for the photo - print screen was just taking a blank screen)
Here is the building I was trying to place:weaver’s house 2 (8.6 KB) (which is problematic too - but I’ll post that in another post)

Also the hearthlings DO walk over this area now and can place object in it (but I’m sure they needlessly walked around it when it first formed) - but still no building allowed - you can’t even place foundations in it.

version 707 x32 (I guess - it’s in the corner of the screenshot)

Thanks @Darren_Ballingall! I take a look after work (if someone doesn’t beat me too it).
