Playing 109693, I notice that when trying to make a series of identical buildings, the alignment can get off.

Sometimes it starts like this:

There's nothing to the left for it to be trying to align to, so it really confuses me.  The next building will align to the second, then I can delete the first and rebuild it in line with the other two.  Works, but annoying.

But then, with no pattern I can discern, after a few buildings this happens:

I tried and tried, but can't find a way to force those to line up.  I don't remember this being a problem in the previous build, and it's driving me insane.

It seems the new snapping system overwrites foundation snapping. So works well on ground, poorly on foundations.
Solution for now, is to leave a bit of space between.

Well that's... frustrating.  I hope they fix that in the update.  But now, if I want to carry this save over to the next version, I'll have to go through and slightly adjust everything I've built.

Maybe it's time for a break.

Devs clearly stated it : Experimental will not be fixed.

While bugs in experimental won't be patched in another experimental version, they will be patched in update 3.


In regards to the bug shown:

I think it's got to do with the foundations and not the machines and their alignment to other machines.
For some weird reason, it seems that any structure placed on foundations will have their steps on the foundation grid adjusted to weird numbers, causing these mismatches.

You could try alignment without foundations to see if the bug still occurs then, in order to determine if it's the foundations, or the new alignment-to-other-structures feature.
