Merge block should inform when it can't merge

Here's one scenario where merge blocks can't merge:


unknown


But they don't let the player know in any way, they just wobble around endlessly.


What I'm suggesting is to have a new color for the merge block's emissive, maybe a blinking bright red one (as opposed to a dark red one when it's turned off), along with a message explaining why it doesn't merge in the detail info of both merge blocks (bottom-right in terminal).

That happens because you didn't move it close enough to lock.

Nope, mind the red-painted catwalks on both sides, if it were to merge then they would have to be in the same cell, which isn't something that the game supports.


That's also the position the magnet puts the grids at, it shouldn't need a manual push beyond what the magnet aligns, if it does then that's a different issue and should be reported.

I'm pretty sure it does tell you it cannot merge, so long as you're in a control seat on one of the grids.


If that's been removed, then I'm not sure when it was.

Nah, it still does but only when in a cockpit.
