Itemplace ghost preview over trunk of trees

Item placement ghost is available at the trunk of a tree.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. item for placing on a wall, like a window.
  2. try place it on trunks of tree (‘p’ tool)
    -> ghost hovers over this position, it looks valid.
    -> real placement is not allowed

Expected Results:
Ghost placement should always tell me if this position is valid or not

Actual Results:
Ghost placement looks like a valid place (the item is not placed there -> i am not allowed to build it)

What do you mean by “valid” ? Did you try to put a ladder beneath it to see if the crate is built ?

I mean pressing the left mousebutton to really place the item, the item is not placed. No ghost object is staying in the world. like i abort the placement. On a solid building wall everything works fine.

Stupid question : any ladder under it (maybe they forgot the ladder) or do you still have a window to place ?
Hard solution: cut the tree and see if it works.
