So, I am really enjoying this game, but there are still things i would love to see included, one of which is more options for customising building designs. So far, we have pretty basic flat walls and foundations that cannot be recoloured at all. I think it'd be nice to have greater variety. Curved walls, diagonal walls, weirdly shaped walls, rounded floors, angled floors for hexagonal and greater sided buildings, slanted and curved roofs/ceilings, and the list goes on. I wanna look at the factory while outside and see something other than a bland box with maybe some windows and doorways.

P.S. I can't imagine I'm the only person to mention it, but the colours used for painting are not persistent in multiplayer.

I can see your point, though you have to keep in mind that there will be many, many problems considering hitboxes of machines or other tools. when creating a steep ceiling for exampele, you might run into the problem that, even though it visually does not come into contact with a machine, the ceiling still gets blocked by the machines hitbox.

This especially comes into reality with machines with rather large hitboxes and relatively small visual mass (such as the oil refinery).

Still, i see your point and would also be very delighted to see more building options being added.

The hit boxes are an issue anyway, the shape of the buildings won't make a difference there, it just means you'll have to be a tad more creative when building that sleek star trek looking factory I may or may not wanna build >_>
