build queue broken

Hi there!

In the past I was able to queue up builduings with built height (fusion generator burried 4 ticks deep) without any issues.

Nowadays if I set multiple build orders they don't terra form correctly.

The queued buildings will be build with randomly stopped (not fully terra formed) build height.

Cheers,

if you raise a terr platform with a structure on-top but the corner is unable to reach correct height because the ground near it is held down by a structure built at ground level the blueprint wont place but it will make a non finished terra.

idk if its this?

Another possible issue is that you might have fully terraformed the new hole, but your LoS means you don't "officially" know the hole is big enough for your singu/whatever.

Try seeing if you can build in it once you've fully scouted the hole (e.g. with an owl or spiders or cons running around the rim).

I treid to reproduce this in a small scale skirmish but the issue didnt occur even scattering the half map with terraholes.
Seems like its related to lags in big games.

I think you had an other building next to your terraform projekt and the terra would have needed to steal that buildings ground to dig deeper -> the terraform automatically stops

no, im aware of this and usually leaving enough space between them. i wouldn't complain, if its so obvious.

it's annoying if you queue burried fusions with your base builder and come back to see he builds the fusions on top the half or less terraformed place.

it just stops the 3-4 click deep terra at 1 or 2 clicks and builds the building.

if there would be missing space (red corners as you mentioned from other buildings) it wouldnt build the fusion.


Sorry for the typos, but it's quite late.

Honestly I've had such issues for as long as I can remember and nobody else seem to have it as they say nothing when I mention it.
Terra-queuing with B breaks at a random point during a match. USUALLY in the form of B not doing anything when pressed in which case I notice while queuing. But sometimes its more the way you describe.
I think I've been avoiding doing terra projects in long queues for years because I cant trust that they will work. Sometimes a constructor will be stuck terraforming a project that never progresses.

can confirm many times terra endlessly being built with nothing happening

There have been changes recently so nothing will be done without a replay. AUrankSmokeDragon I think your issue does not occur.

ok. you may freely say it does not.. yes it has happened to me before.. if you say it may be fixed recently then it might be a non issue now. i remember it happened to me about a week past. and about once per week it would happen. most of a wall will complete and 1 part will nothing while constructed. and before you say... yeah ill get you a replay when i can find one
