It's hard to explain, so images will talk better. :)

 

Here's the temperature overlay in my "industrial complex"

Now, once I select the tempshift plate in the build menu, you can see that the view slighly change. It's not the same temperature overlay. O_o

Believe that is by design. It is filtering out temperatures of objects that are not utilities (some things are not filtered though, like solid blocks/gas/water).

Same things happens if you have, say, plumbing selected and you are trying to click on a power wire. It's not selectable or displayed in the case of temperature.

The tempshift plate is used to enhance heat exchange between the ambiant atmosphere and the buildings.

There's no use in filtering the temperature of buildings, pipes, etc.

Well, you seemed confused on what was happening. I simply explained it.

Don't think it's a bug. It's doing what it is supposed to do, IMO. Filtering out everything but utilities (not sure why blocks/gas/air/liquids still show though). Similar to how building a deodorizer shows the oxygen overlay which essentially hides polluted oxygen on that filter. It's just a basic interaction between the menu item you picked and the overlay attached to it.

If you are suggesting that should not be so, then fine, but your original post seemed like you were confused what was different.
The deodorizer should be changed as well to show the new gas material overlay, or no filter at all, IMO.

 

BTW, you can reset the overlay to default or switch to another overlay to override the automatic one. If you hit F3 twice, you will get the default one you had before picking the tempshift plate. Just select the tempshift plate then hit F3 twice.

Honestly, it's not our prerogative to say what is an intended behavior and what is not.

I'm not a dev.

 

In the game, selecting the tempshift plate in the building menu automatically switches to the temperature overlay.

This one looks different than when we activate it by ourself.

It may be a bug.

 

That's all !;)
