i get the same issue. it is like an invisible obstruction is in the way. maybe something from developer mode? i am working on building a fort on an island. i’m close to done but there are a few places that your units just wont snap and thus cannot be placed. do the dev’s realize how frustrating it is. this is a survival game where building is one of the KEY focuses of the game. how can we build if we keep running into these invisible obstructions. for me. it is like there is an intangible 3D mass floating in mid air preventing the placement of building units… it is like i have a hole in my complex. ill try to upload a steam screenshot for reference. (cant, “new users can not upload images”)
it appears that the snapping mechanic follows a VERY strict and weird set of rules in order to work properly. by using different pieces you can usually get it to work. but it can get VERY complicated and is often FAR more trouble then it’s worth, unless you are OCD like myself.
Suggestion to the Dev’s if possible. revisit this and figure out a way to loosen the snapping restrictions. but honestly im doubtful that will ever actually be solved because i am inclines to believe it is at fault of the engine used to build the game and less an issue of code. therefore it would be impossible to do this without rebuilding the game on an entirely new engine…that is of course assuming that is in fact the case. if not, i would definitely like to see this issue resolved.
