Question: Does this mean you can build it, or does it mean that you can build it AND it'll stay floating afterward?

Because accidental suicide by cavein-bomb would be an entertainingly moronic way to lose an adventurer. XP

EDIT: To answer my own question...

Yep, you can indeed cavein-bomb yourself. Ouch.

Huh, that's unfortunate. I spent some time putting in checks to cause the structures to be built from the buildable portions out into the planned parts, maintaining connectivity hour by hour. I guess I must have broken it at the last minute.

Thing is, it seems that when building a structure, like a wall, it does seem to idiotproof the build order in the way you described, Toady.

It's just that, if you force the construction into a situation where the only possible result is one that causes a cavein, it goes along with it and boom, self-induced telefrag ensues. XP

Yeah, it was just a typo causing it to behave oddly. It should avoid cave-ins for next time.
