[01.166 STABLE] Blast Doors block is not airtight

    The blast doors block [​IMG] is not considered airtight with the orientation such that there are no gaps around the edge. Tested on all builds from 01.149 DEV to 01.166 STABLE using a simple pressurized box of standard armor blocks: pressure is still lost when one of the armor blocks is replaced with a blast doors block placed as shown in the post below.

    I can provide a save if required but the bug should be easily reproduced.

    P.S. Thanks for all your hard work :)

    they were never intended to be air tight, they have to be used with pistons (ugh) to make a blast door, and so are not the same full dimensions as a normal block, used as intended a blast door with a piston will never be able to be air tight as it is a separate (and slightly loose) grid, airtightness (as they now call it lol) is a single grid thing :D

    While that should be the case for the edge blast door blocks as they were designed to slide over other blocks on the bevelled edge, the un-bevelled standard one pictured in my first post should be airtight in the orientation where there are literally no gaps through which oxygen can escape.

    In the example below you can see that the block is flush against the others on all sides and should therefore be airtight:

    NB the room does pressurize if you replace the blast door block with an armor block.

    trying to use blast door blocks as in-betweener armor type block? yes that block type should be considered air tight, but it is called a blast door section, and probably wont be high on their list to change it,

    we do need a medium armour block, the light are too fragile and the heavy are too expensive, need something between them

    Yes, in the orientation you have it, it should seal on all four sides - because nothing can slide past on either of those sides.
