Placing "Wall Loop" into a hill freezes game-


#1

Summary:

If the start of a “Wall Loop” is placed into a hill or surface which should not be accessible (like the soil-layers underneath the gras) the game freezes / crashes.

Steps to reproduce:

Start a new game, click on the “Wall Loop”-icon and build the starting point of the wall into terrain which is not accessible:

  • … into a hill
  • … into soil underneath your grasland

Once placed, the game will freez.

Expected Results:

It should not be possible to place walls into terrain which is not ment for it (like inside a hill, rock, etc.).

We need to fix this by adding some extra validation.

I’m not 100% positive, but I believe this was reported… perhaps on SHG?

curious though, was the discovery accidental or intentional? :smile:

I think I remember seeing this reported somewhere too. Cuz I had it happen too, it actually crashed my game when I’d do it. (Prior to the new AI Build)
