How to build refineries/extractors/assimilators on top of each other?

I'm trying to re-create a "fastest possible" from SC1 but I'm having trouble getting the gas guzzlers built on top of each other.

I have placed a couple lines of 4 vespene geysers on both sides of the start location, unchecked the "placement check layer" to no build in wizard view for ref/ext/ass but I still can't get my little workers to build on the available geysers when I test....

I also have no idea how to upload pics or, like, lists of what I've done, either... so... yeah :confused::confused::confused:

Any clues for this super n00b..???

Cheers :)

Hey, Jesse.

So I'm trying to stack gasses as close as possible to the CC. What I can't seem to do is then build the refineries if the gasses are on top of each other as in the second picture.

Cheers!

hey man, i just tried to replicate what you did, i did 2 things and i could build on them in game,

firstly i opened the footprint and removed all the yellow blockers fom the footprint template for the refinery. then i removed all of the collide under movement for refinery. "structure" "ground" etc.

This might not provide the solution you desire as the refinery might have no collision with other units but i beleive this is what you need to use.

my understanding is that because you have the geysers overlapped the refinery is happy to build on the first gyser, but then it is "colliding" with the other ones, so you need to have the refinery and the geyser not share a common collison flag.

I suggest testing a few differnt variations and see if you can get it working. hope this helps

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more

    The side chat has nothing on the discord. it is not possible but the biggest thing on my wish list right now is a sidechat channel on the disord that hooks up to this...
