[BUG] Can Make Signal Box Partly Overlap Rails.
« on: June 05, 2019, 04:18:47 PM »
Multi tile signal box placement does not correctly test tile occupancy for tiles other than the main one.

Attached is a save which can be used to demonstrate this. Find the sign on the map and follow the instructions. The instructions are to delete the sign (for some reason one cannot place a signal box over a sign... another bug?) and then place the specified signal box where the sign was. The signal box is 2 tiles large and the second tile will be placed on top of a tile containing rails.

The setup recreated in the save mirrors where I encountered this issue on the Bridgewater Brunel server, so it can be consistently recreated. Deleting the signal box in this state will only delete 1 of the two tiles that make it up. It is not possible to repair the track after removing the signal box and tile of rails without performing a save/load cycle.

Thank you for your report. I believe that I have now fixed this; I should be very grateful if you could re-test with to-morrow's nightly build.
