tile_x is ignoring height ( coordinate z)

The tile_x function does not recognize the z coordinate at all, is this an error?

I try to use "tile_x (pos.x, pos.y, pos.z +1) .is_marked ()" to prevent the use of elevated tracks, but I need the height coordinates to be working well.

    function is_work_allowed_here(pl, tool_id, pos) {
        if (tool_id==4110){
            if(tile_x(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z +1).is_marked())
                return 0 // High tracks are not allowed            else
                return null


You cannot mark non-existing tiles. If tile at given coordinate does not exist, tile_x uses the ground tile.

I wonder if it is possible to get the coordinates of the cursor when it builds an elevated track ??.

Maybe you can distinguish between a elevated track and a normal track.
