[minor] x marked Blocks won't be reused

When I mark a few squares to build blocks and then delete this marks although block is already in build or was built but not set on the square which I marked, the block will get x'ed but not used anymore. New build block jobs will ignore this x'ed block instead of using it before creating a new one.

Yeah, that's the problem with solid(<base>) items: The townies can't go to their position to pick them up, so they end up laxing around doing nothing.

It's a bit odd, when first unlocked the <wall> tag no longer applies so they're not solid; but if you re-load the game then it re-implements the wall tag and they can't be used. In other words, if you unlock a wall you can move it but if you leave it sitting and quit the game then it gets stuck.

But yeah, the game should remember that it's unlocked AND no longer solid, or else give an option to unlock again.

Hopefully one of the points in there can sort out your issue, I suspect that it's simply that you're ordering a large area of blocks to be placed somewhere that the townies *can* get to but where there aren't any other blocks to support the new ones being built.

i'll try and add something to towns++ mod.. not guaranteeing anything. but i'll try.. (if its possible.. if not i'll write back here why it hasn't been done for a roundtable talk on the matter to see if something can be accomplished. they shouldn't be able to place an item where they can't pick it up from. unless their path to the item has been damaged in the mean time
