BUG: Vertices sometimes off grid
« on: March 23, 2016, 11:25:50 PM »
I am unsure when exactly it happens but when I was creating a model sometimes the vertices would go off the 1x1 grid and I was unable to make a vertex at the same location as another vertex. I was forced to delete the entire face and retry. sometimes I would have to do this multiple times before I was able to correctly position the vertex.

I was creating a semi-complex model shown below, but im unsure if that has anything to do with it

Nice model :)
Yes, I've had that issue happen to me too. I'm pretty sure it's related to splitting a tile. When you split a tile, it splits along the pixels in the texture, so if a tile is angled/sloped you end up with vertices that aren't aligned precisely to the grid.
Perhaps I could add an option to re-align selected vertices.
One way that might help in the meantime is to hold shift and click+drag the vertex to a nearby vertex. Holding shift allows you to snap a vertex to another vertex, so you can snap a vertex that isn't aligned to the one you're trying to align it to.
I'll look into adding an option to realign them.
