[PC] Live - 5/22/18 - I cannot place chests on shelves anymore

I cannot place chests on shelves anymore. Please tell me this is a bug, and not intended. Before the Live patch on 5/18/18, I was able to set some chests on the ground, place some shelves above them, then find what I call the “sweet spot” to place chests on the shelf. I like to be very organized, and doing this has helped me keep things neat and orderly.

Well, I came into a thread this morning where someone was asking if you could still do that, so I showed them my chests in my main base. Then, I decided to try and do it again, so I could take screenshots of where to move the chest. I’ve been fiddling around with it for almost 20 minutes and I cannot get it to work. The “sweet spot” now seems to be hollow, because the chest would rather melt through the shelf than connect to it.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Place shelf.
  2. Turn on chest placement in toolbar.
  3. Fiddle around with every single angle you can possibly get to get the chest to place on shelf.
  4. Not gonna happen.

If you don’t want us to place chests on shelves, then either give us better storage, or shelves designed for that. Or possibly shelves that are designed to put chests on.
