Latest Release 537- Hearthlings still building on top of scaffolding/ladders

Hearthlings are still building on top of scaffolding/ladders (the ladders are not manually placed), with intricate builds.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build rectangle shaped building with walls
  2. Place Castle roof with ‘Max Height’ & ‘Offset’ set to 8
  3. Observe building process near top of roof

Expected Results:
Hearthlings do not build on top of or over scaffolding and scaffolding ladder.

Actual Results:
Hearthlings build on top of and over scaffolding and scaffolding ladders

This one’s especially fun because, the way the game works now anyway, you’re effectively stuck with that unless the bug is later fixed and you decide to tear it all down and rebuild it. And sometimes it can be seen shimmering through the wall texture too.

One of my templates is prone to this happening too, so I’m glad to see this post. :slight_smile:

Here’s another screenshot to confirm:

Addendum: Until this gets fixed via the teardown logic, you can work around the problem by selecting abandoned scaffolding/ladders and then using the console ‘destroy’ command to remove them one at a time (tested and confirmed). You do lose the wood they used to construct the scaffolding, but since wood is a renewable resource, it’s not too impactful.
