Bug Description:

Rotating Foundations when replacing from T1 to T3 not possible.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. build base with T1 material
  2. produce some T3 building pieces like foundations
  3. Go on to replace
  4. try to rotate, but it won‘t work
  5. only possible when the t1 pieces will be removed before replace with t3

I had to take down t1 foundations and the wall because t3 would not go in place :unamused:

Same here, not only t1 → t2 → t3. Had a hard time replacing arena foundations by nemedian ones, even being on asthetical matter, its annoying, i had to remove the arena fundations to place the nemedian in the right orientation to form the wooden floor pattern. Aven even when placing new foundations over exiting ones, the new one wants to follow the orientation of the bellow one and cant rotate.


Greetings everyone and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We’ve passed this issue over to the rest of the team for further investigation.

In the meantime if you have any screenshots or videos available for this issue, please feel free to send them our way as these will help with the investigation.


I also tryed the other way from t3 to t1, but it doesn‘t work either.


Thank you so much for this video :blush: will be passing it over to the team investigating this issue.


I thought when you replaced a piece it always automatically oriented in the direction that the original piece was oriented without the option of rotating it. I could be wrong, but I thought that was how it used to be.

We have not had the handy arrow along on consoles

Yeah the arrows on officials and consoles are a new addition which is why I think people are seeing it as something new. There have been mods which had that arrow, actually a larger arrow, for a long time so that is probably why this is not something that is new to me.

Earlier it was possible to rotate foundations etc wenn upgrading the tier.

I also noticed that this issue occur bei replacing walls or fences.

I think this is a new problem on Ps4. This weekend I test on a couple different servers.

I can do this on PS5 but recently it has stopped doing so after a update.


Just now i noticed if the place/foundations you want to up/downgrade is blocked because of a thrall, and you change the perspective, the foundations rotate automatically.
After replacing the thrall the rotating by changing the perspective stops. Maybe it helps to know.


That is good to know that this is not wanted. I started a thread a month ago. Rotating while replacing building

But not as bug report because I thought maybe it is wanted. I hope I can fix some parts of my base in future :slight_smile:

Hi Dana,
Another thing that maybe is connected to this:
Replacing 0 stability pieces goes into a blue screen on my ps4. The last weeks when I had this i used the psn bug report option with added video maybe it helps.
