Platform Issue
« on: August 24, 2017, 03:45:55 PM »
I've noticed something very strange with the platform:



The two platform ends on the left are as normal, but the two on the right look as if they are meant to be joined onto another platform piece. Is this a bug or is it intentional.

I am afraid that I do not fully understand the issue based on the description; are you able to upload a saved game in which this issue is present?

I think he means that the platforms usually end in ramps, but the two on the lower left do not.

Was there an image in that post? I am afraid that I cannot see it. I have trouble seeing anything from Imagur, for some reason.

I see - I think that I understand what the problem is now. However, the part of the code that deals with this is, to my knowledge, unchanged from Standard, and I am not familiar with how it works at all, so it is likely to take me a very long time to work on fixing this. Given that it is only of cosmetic significance, I am afraid that I will have to regard this as a low priority issue at present.

Thank you for the report, however.

I see. That is no problem, it doesn't negatively alter the gameplay at all, so it's fine.

Is it possible that there is some sort of invisible station tile, next to the two platforms? Perhaps underground? What does info tool say about the tiles next to the platform?

The info tool suggests that next to the platforms are just the track.

I tried download the game and open it. I found the platform you reported, and there is an underground station just benieth it which is probably causing the graphical issue.

It appears that the wrong rotation is used as long as there is the underground platform benieth. However, by extending the platform beyond the underground platform, the correct rotation will eventually be used. If you then delete the extra platform tiles, the remaining platforms will use the correct rotations, solving the graphical issue.
