Bug: Gateways now allowed to be placed on terrain, but are instantly destroyed

Game mode: Online private | Single-player
Type of issue: Bug

Since today’s patch, for some reason it seems in addition to snapping to foundations like expected, you can attempt to place gateways on open terrain now. If you’re playing single player, they immediately pop and are destroyed when placed on terrain. If you’re playing on a dedicated server, the item is consumed when placed on terrain but never appears where placed (so presumably it is being instantly destroyed on the server, much like in SP).

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Spawn any Gateway into your inventory using the admin console.
  2. Attempt to place the Gateway by aiming around terrain/open ground.
  3. Notice placement preview no longer says “this needs to snap to an existing building piece”
  4. Click to place the Gateway on the terrain. The item will be consumed and in SP it explodes, on a dedicated server it never appears.

Hey @Daedalon

Thanks for the feedback. Just before we send it to our team, could you confirm if you’re using mods or not?

I’ve noticed the same, in single-player, unmodded. Thought it was a SP quirk, and since I only use SP to test things, forgot all about it.


Thanks for the confirmation. Sending note to the team.
