Cant build in certain area

Last night there was some blocks I used as a road, once I got bricks I wanted to remove those blocks and replace them with bricks. Once clicking on them and pressing remove, my workers wouldn’t remove it. I got off and came back on the the next day to find that those blocks were gone, with one strange effect in place. The strange part is it only happens in a small area and another area next to it removes fine, sounds like some kind of block corruption? I cant remove or build on that area in any way, shape, or form. If anyone has encountered this and have tips on fixing it cause it is right in the middle of my town.
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Dig hole in ground
  2. Place blocks in ground
  3. Try to remove blocks
  4. Restart game when it doesn’t work
  5. Can’t place anything
    (May not work cause of the corruption thing I talked about in the summary)

Expected Results:
Be able to place another block in the hole

Actual Results:
A hole in the ground that cannot have anything placed in it

(May not work cause of the corruption thing I talked about in the summary)

Yeah I know this bug. When it happens, I create my way by beginning from the edge of it.
Instead of doing a 3X15 try to do a 4X15 and then erase the edge of the way.
It should work this way.


Thanks so much! Works perfectly.

Hey there @Gleisix, welcome to the Discourse.

Just making sure I am following here, this is still a valid bug, but you were able to use a workaround?

I think I can talk for him: the bug is pretty old and still present. But you can avoid it.
