graphically, walls only connect to the open end of bastions

functionally, walls connect to every part of bastions

so if you place walls next to the closed end of a bastion you will see a gap but troops will not be able to pass through.

this is either a bug in graphics or a bug in function, and the question of which it is was raised in gen disc forum but was not answered. please answer.


(and also, troops seem to love to try to destroy bastions and step on -82% movement rubble even when there are better paths available, i.e. ignoring nearer and weaker wall sections, or a path around the bastion. are the stupid units dividing the bastion hp by 8 tiles and thinking of it as very weak walls?)

Wow, that's a nice demonstrative image.

I'm quite certain it is a functionality bug. First, graphically it would look quite ugly if they did want the rounded end to connect to walls... and secondly, it would seem very overpowered if you could just put it in the middle of a wall layout and connect it to a bunch of different wall lines (basically choke point), essentially guaranteeing that troops will destroy it and walk into the rubble. I am pretty sure it wasn't intended that way. But it is all speculation until an official answer, of course.

yes they stop troops. we’re all waiting for bhg to either tell us they will fix it, or tell us ‘too bad so sad’
