Diagonal support beams needs a fix ASAP!

Game mode: [Online]
Problem: [Bug]
Region: [Everywhere]


[There are no free text everything takes time typing. :D]


Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. build a wall and a ceiling on top of it put a diagonal beam, repeat the steps till you have a huge “stair-shaped” structure.
  2. Enjoy your creation. (I made a huge round hall around the maproom this way)
  3. log off… next time log in.
  4. Freak out that your structures upper part collapsed.

Problem: Diagonal support beams forget that they needs to provide support from time to time.
Mostly noticeable after logging in. So maybe a load order issue? or some value storing issue maybe? or just simply wrong timing on the phisics system’s update. These I can think of at first.

I have checked the beams stability value normally it transfers 100% stability so they work fine.
But after I logging into the game next time those support beam seems to loose their ability and acts like if they wouldn’t be there (aka 0 stability transfer). Replacing them restores the stability… until the next login time…

And I am sick and tired rebuilding my roofs every time I am able to log back to the overpopulated server.

NORMAL SUPPORT beams doesn’t even give any stability at all.

(P.S.: Wedges and support beams not playing nice together that needs a fix too looks like the attachment points are inverted or rotated so to a wedge ceiling you cannot put beam straight to the wall next to it. instead they want to be placed like 45°to the wall every time)

I am playing on official server from a PC.

Actually you can but the beam straight to the wall next to it. Took me a while to figure it out too though. The issue is that the three sides of the wedge aren’t all equal in terms of how you can attach the beam to it.
What does that mean? -> you need to rotate your wedge, one of the three possible orientations allow to place the beam straight.
same goes for placing a beam under a wedge that is pointed towards the wall (a wedge that is attached to a wedge, that is attached to the wall :thinking::sweat_smile:). Except that this looks stupid because there is a small gap between the beam and the wall then…

I would’ve added pictures. They would have explained this much quicker and simpler then my words do. But the forum tells me NO - becase I am still too new of a user :roll_eyes:
