Structures in water

This has been in stonehearth since I started playing, but since the new water system is getting implemented, I thought this would be a good time to report this.

When building structures in water, the water cells don’t get replaced by solid cells, resulting in the water being able to flow through the structure, and water flowing from the solid blocks when neighboring blocks are mined away. This in contrast to blocks build outside of water, which behave as solid blocks.

As a side note, ever since the last update, placing blocks inside water makes the game freeze for a second which is especially notable when several hearthlings are constructing large amounts of blocks inside the water.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. place slabs in the water next to land
  2. mine away the land

Expected Results:
no water flowing to the blocked off area

Actual Results:
water flowing through the blocks

Version Number and Mods in use:
r-758, lots of mods, but none water related (although the picture in this post is from the swamp biome)

System Information:
Windows 10, intel i7 3610-QM, 24GB ram, Nvidia K1000M


@Albert, I reported this same problem almost 2 years ago. Thought it was going to be fixed back in Alpha 13?
