Suggestion

Pillar Overhaul/Removing Nubs

Issues with pillars have been common since the beginning; either by their odd snap points or the like but they are necessary in most cases to build a functional base on the many uneven terrains of the arks. The structure of the pillar as a whole in my opinion needs a overhaul but for the sake of this suggestion I will be talking about a part of the aesthetics of the pillar. We all know when you place a pillar down first then a ceiling the ceiling will snap to the top of the pillar with a flush, smooth top but when you try to place a ceiling down first (attached to another structure) then a pillar down from that ceiling it leaves a unnecessarily large nub sticking out from the top of the ceiling. These nubs are not pleasing to the eye to any builder and when you try to go around the problem by placing all your pillars first then when its time to upgrade the pillars underneath they default back to the nub sticking out from the ceiling. Its especially annoying when people place bear traps within the nubs so you cant see where they are just to mess with you while you are stuck there for who knows how long trying to get out of the traps in your own base. In short, if there is a way to revamp the pillar structure all together or just remove the nubs from the top of the ceilings so our floors/ceilings can be smooth and flush it would be much appreciated.

Summary: Overhaul the pillar structure to make them more simplified and/or remove the nubs from the pillars that protrude through ceilings.

We were discussing this very issue the other day on the cluster I play on. 

Our thoughts were that they should A) remove them completely or B) all you to "hide" the top of the pillar just as you would with changing the display of the foundations. 

Either way, you are correct in stating they are otherwise a pain to deal with. And quite honestly unattractive with the bump they showcase.

Honestly the build system needs a overhaul with scale and rotate put in like in other build games would make building in ark ao much better and a button to toggle on and off snap points and one to get a grid overlay... Maybe new thing if building in tek helmets with element in them..... But yeah pillars could use some work such weird snap pts some times.
