T3 Fence Foundation pointless on T3 Foundation


#1

Game mode: [Online | Singleplayer] (BOTH)
Problem: Bug
Region: EU

Placing a T3 Fence foundation onto a T3 Foundation does not prevent damage (explosive jar) to the foundation itself. (damage penetrates through the fence foundation to the foundation its on)

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Build 1 x T3 Foundation & place.
  2. Build 4 x Fence foundations and surround the Foundation
  3. Place Explosive Jar
  4. 9 Jars = fence foundation destroyed leaving only ~15 - 20k left on the foundation (non fence)

I don’t really know if this is an “issue” per say, it could be completely intended, however the fence foundation did reinforce your initial foundation :smiley:


#3

You used 9 jars and didnt blow up the foundation. The fence reinforced it just like it should have.


#4

My point being that the foundation behind the fence foundation should have 100k


#5

But all the explosions have splash damage, no? It just gets divided up amongst the things it hits, I thought.


#6

Explosives work in very weird ways, and things like how close they are or how vertically parallel have a huge impact on how they deal damage. So I would say that the fence foundations truly did prevent the actual foundation from taking damage.

90k = Fence

100k = Foundation

9 Jars (Placed perfectly = 90k damage + burn)

Foundation had = 15k to 20k hp left

We can only guess at how he placed it.

On a side note I have had dupers blow up a vault through a wall by placing 200+ bombs and detonating them behind 2 walls. :wink:


#7

It’s not worth putting a fence foundation onto a foundation if it’s going to allow 80% of the damage through. economically speaking You may as well just build 2 x foundations = 200k. Vs fence foundation and foundation ~110k withstanding

Edit I put the bomb at the base of the fence foundation in the middle
