dekema - What you want is impossible, as of now.

I just realized that the two tiles on HDomos' screenshot have indeed different heights. A single tile has single height information. The slopes you can normally see are actually a sort of overlay, dependent on situation to front/back. But the basic height underneath is still there. Apparently, here the water tile is actually at water level, and has a slope that makes it behave like ground, while the mine has a flat foundation that raises the "effective tile base" one level higher. An open question is if using the slopes for wall calculation would be too hard, I guess...

edit: I realized something else :D One has to be careful about where the wall belongs to - what is its "home" tile! The one in front, or the one in the back? That might affect this, too. Also explains the behaviour of up/down slope tools a bit.
