Smarter Construction

Description
Stop your pawns from constantly building themselves into a wall or blocking something that hasn't been built yet. Great for filling sapper tunnels and rebuilding walls.

Currently only affects construction (not installing minified structures). Save game compatible. Right click => construct will bypass the mod so you can trap things intentionally.

Compatibility
  • Blueprints: fully compatible
  • Misc. Robots++: fully compatible
  • Home Mover: uses minify and install so it can still trap pawns
  • Replace Stuff: uses custom code so it can still trap pawns
  • Achtung!: if you force construction this mod won't apply, but it isn't really an issue since it has custom forced job logic
  • Linux: compatible again!

Performance
Now even faster, and with much less fps drop! Profiling revealed a 1.5% slowdown at the peak of the second gif (10 builders and ~600 wall segments at max speed), and no impact when not constructing anything. For optimization purposes areas of 50 tiles+ are considered open.

Found a bug?
Please post it in the bug reports thread with a full log and a screenshot if applicable.

Does this work with 1.5?

Pawns are indeed much more intelligent with this mod, however, they seem to close up the entire middle area that needs construction, making the center impossible to reach unless you destroy 1 or 2 blocks... Still a great mod! I think there may be a flaw going on since the update...

Yeah, it was somewhere around 52 wall tiles. My bad, didn't think of calculating the walls I queued for building. So, a false report, sorry for that.

Looks like it's juuuust north of the magical 50 tiles limit. Intentional bug I guess? I could really up that limit a bit, both the game and the mod are much faster than when I made it.
