Objects placed at wall prevent hearthlings from placing more things on the wall

This is not even that new of a problem, but I feel like reporting it now… ^^

When objects are placed on the ground, directly next to a wall, they make it impossible to place further things directly on the wall above them. See screenshot below for an example.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build a building with windows in the walls, but don’t build the actual windows yet
  2. When the wall is finished, place items on the ground under the whole left for the windows
  3. Have your crafters build the windows
  4. Wait for your hearthlings to try and place the windows

Expected Results:
The hearthlings somehow manage to climb on top of/ignore the items placed on the ground, build their ladders and place the windows in the wall.

Actual Results:
The ladder is planned to start on top of the object, which is itself unreachable for the hearthlings, so the windows never get placed.

I haven’t tried it, but it should be possible to work with natural walls, too: Place something on the ground first, then put up something wall-mounted on that wall above the object.


These urns were placed directly at the wall at first, this screenshot was taken after moving them away to check the ladder length.
