Alexandria ~ Great Library Footprint Bug?
Now for the rest of the story...
Basically TM did not idiot-proof the footprint for this building. Should they have? I'm not so sure any longer.
Image #1 ~ This is how it looks when we try to place with gridlines turned on. The white plaza road outline is full building size 13 x 13 tiles. This is the correct placement. You cannot place the back half visible portion over an obsticle like a road or the building will be red & will not place.
It is really hard to place the building wrongly, cuz we get the dotted footprint outline like normal to tell us we are doing it wrong.
Image #2 ~ This is how it looks when we try to place the building wrong. The footprint is not red & it is placable. You will have ugly problems if you place like this. The front half of the building which will become arms like the arms of a chair will be built later.
Image #3 ~ This is what the footprint will look like if placed in the position from Image #2 above. You clearly now know that something is wrong. You can delete at this point & have lost nothing.
Image #4 ~ This is the completed building after construction is complete. You can see the arms, central pool & plaza courtyard.
There is also a very interesting hole in the front right corner. You can build a Grand Obelisk here, or a large basalt statue. Anything 2 x 2 tiles. Interesting, no?
Is this why TM did it this way? Is this really a Bug? If TM did it the "normal" way with idiot-proofing, we wouldn't be able to build that Grand Obelisk in that hole.
I love Grand Obelisks!
