Cannot build right next to ledge

I wasn’t sure if I should put this in the buildings that won’t build topic, since the building will build, just not where I want it.

Summary: Hearthlings will not complete buildings where a wall is partially on a ledge and partially not.

Steps to Reproduce: Place/design any building with one wall overlapping a ledge and flat ground or the wall completely on the ledge

Expected Results: Scaffolding will be placed on the inside wall so that the building can be completed.

Actual Results: Scaffolding will be placed on the outside of this wall, but if the Hearthlings can’t get below, they will not finish building.

Workaround: Build ladders allowing Hearthlings access to area below the ledge, so they can build the necessary scaffolding.

can your Hearthlings reach the lower level, direct below your building? Usually they try to build the scaffoldings from there …

Currently they couldn’t, so I built some extra ladders so they could finish. It isn’t game breaking, just something I noticed that could be better. Building the ladders from the bottom, in this case, just takes longer and then I have to destroy the ladders to make sure monsters can’t get in. In the real build I was trying to create some long buildings as defense and noticed that it wouldn’t finish. This was just a simplified example for the screenshot and recreate.


This is a corner case, perfectly valid. We’ll leave it as a separate issue. :slightly_smiling:
Paging @not_owen_wilson to take note of this case.
