Structure placement could use some love.

Recommended Posts

If something has no good reason to block you from placing a structure, I don't think it should block you from doing so.

For example, Abigail used to block placement in dst, and it made building as Wendy infuriating. (thanks for fixing that!)


Let's do that, but with a bunch of other things that get in the way and have no reason to block you.

*Mobs which don't collide with structures: (Butterflies, Birds, Bees, Tentacles, Glommer, etc.)

*Followers: (Chester, Hutch, Mandrakes, Domesticated Beefalo(?) etc.)

*Items on the ground: (Seeds, Flint, Rot, etc.) those don't have any business blocking you either.


While on the topic of improving building, I'd also like to address this:

You can place Ice Boxes right next to Crock Pots,  but you can't place Crock Pots the same distance from Ice Boxes.

There's a similar issue with Chests and Alchemy Engines/Shadow Manipulators. or any two structures with conflicting placement mechanics.

Ehh, you get the picture, here's a video of it:
