Has anyone else had this problem?
I had always planned on adding a garden dome on top of my refining station, but when I tried to position one today it just kept saying “Invalid Position”.
I then tried the large round room and that gave the same result.
My character is not inside the existing room, and is far enough away to be able to place it. Have tried with camera mode, and, without camera mode.
I have tried logging to the menu, but still not able to place it.
I tried logging all the way out and back and also still unable to place it.
My first speculation was that I placed a ladder first, then tried to place the dome.
I thought maybe the ladder was stopping the placement of the dome/round room, so I removed the ladder and tried again, but no luck.
Then I went back to the save I made just before I placed the ladder. But still not able to place the dome/round room.
My base complexity is on ultra, and I can place the dome or the round room anywhere else except on the existing round room.
If it has nothing to do with placing the ladder first, then my next suspect is that glitch that would not let me add wires to connect a new batch of supply depots and harvesters to an existing working array until I flew into space and back.
I went to the Freighter, debriefed my crews, sent them off again, sold some stuff, and flew back to the base.
Still unable to place dome or round room on top of existing room.
As a further test, I was able to place a new round room and then place a dome on top of that.
Only other conjecture is that the 7 large refiners inside the existing round room are somehow interfering with the placement.
Other than that, I am at a complete loss, though I am still suspecting that ladder somehow got saved even though I took it down.
