Newbie Building Problems

Hi, I’m fairly new to the game.

Aka kickstarted and now playing it now that its done.

I finished stockpiling and was like. Ok lets build a house. Used the options to make a big room and thought, “lets make it 2 stories with beds up top.” So I made another room on top of the first room and placed the pieces on with the roof. Then I hit build and “This building contains invalid structures. Make sure no structures are red!”

I used my poor camera controls and couldn’t find anything red. Then settled to try making a 1 storied building. Same thing pops up. And slowly to the point where I put down a room and a door. and that same message appears. A week has passed in game and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong with building.

Can you post a screenshot of the simplest building you’re trying to make that isn’t working?

and if you toggle the walls down? (im suspecting accidental underground blocks beeing the culprit. also try the X ray mode)

Or is it all the way back into the terrain behind it perhaps? Or is there an item inside a wall?

That’s not it. I tried lifting it up and down so the floor is above ground too. But still gives me that message

doesnt that just try to put down the item and fail nowadays?

If you upload the save file, maybe someone can take a look at it and figure out what’s going on.

I don’t actually play this game, I just mod it. :wink: For now anyway.

yeah im mostly guilty of that too :’)
its mildly addicting…

@Kirbogon, if you upload the savefile we can take a look at it.

  1. Find the save folder for the saves you wish to upload. By default, they are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth\saved_games (assuming a default Steam install).
  2. Zip the folder.
  3. Right click the folder (should be a long set of numbers).
  4. Left click on Send to in the menu that appears.
  5. Left click on `Compressed (Zipped) folder).
  6. (Optional) Rename the folder to something different than the default set of numbers.
  7. Upload the save.
  8. If the zip is less than 10 MB, you can upload it directly. Either use the upload button or drag and drop it into the compose window,
  9. If larger than 10 MB, upload it to a cloud storage site like Dropbox, Google Drive, File Dropper, etc. and post the sharing link here.
