The feature / gameplay element I'm talking about last worked in 1.02:
When you pointed a fence kit at any geometry above your eye level, the normally vertical fence "direction" would line up with your line of sight, allowing you to build all sorts of neat structures (provided the server allowed such fence placements) like horizontal platforms, roofs, walkways and more - see this little imgur album of a "car repair workshop" we built back in february or so:
Ever since 1.03 however, fences always point UP, regardless of where or how you attempt placing them. The benefit is an easier way to make them straight I suppose, but the possibilities of an adjustible fence as you can see in the imgur album are endless and were fun to use.
I would ask that you revert the placement dynamics back to how they worked before, and maybe just make the "focus" modifier key straighten the fence kit upwards to help out the people who can't into fence-aligning-along-some-item-that-you-drop-for-a-sec.
Either way, thank you for your efforts!
