Placement bug with Gateways

Game mode: Online private & Single-player
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvE
Region: [AU]
Game ver: rev #246072/26452

The following was tested in un-modded singleplayer and un-modded private server, on the original map.

If placed on a foundation, Gateways attach as normal. If you aim too high, the ‘ghost’ preview is red and you get advised that it requires support. Left-clicking results in no placement and a message of “invalid placement”. This is normal.

If you lower the ghost to the ground level, the ghost turns green and the “needs support” message goes away, thus indicating it’s safe to place. However, if you left click, you get the placement noise, the item is removed from your inventory BUT it destructs instantly.

If you try this on a private server, you get the same preview behaviour but when you left-click to place, there’s no noise, nothing is actually placed in the world but the item is still removed from your inventory.

If we should be able to place gateways directly on the ground, then that’s clearly not happening. If gateways should require foundation support, then it seems the idiot-proofing code has developed a bug!

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:
