Floating door bug[Alpha 16]

Door somehow floating in mid-air and unable to delete it, regardless of building ladders or flooring to get back to it. Tried re-saving, tried deleting using the remove tool, tried about everything I could think of, yet there she floats!

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build a wall using the wall tool in the custom building designer.
  2. Build a tunnel door but not at ground level (build it like a block high)
  3. Attempt to delete the door (maybe try deleting the wall and seeing what happens too. I don’t know the order in which the error was generated but there was definitely an error box.)

Expected to delete the door.

Door instead floats as if it’s still in game but the villagers no longer recognize it as an object so they won’t delete it.

Was able to find a fix: Using Ctrl+Shift+C to open dev console and type “destroy” if you have the piece selected. Seemed to work just fine. Any other fixes are welcomed. Thanks!

i built a wall on the outside of my to be village but i accidentally built it floating, my villagers were dying because they got stuck on the outside and couldn’t open the door xD… Thank you so much dude.
