Can't use 2 cards to build 'anywhere'

This thread is open.

The rules allow you to use 2 cards as 1 action, to build when you don't have an appropriate card (provided you can obtain needed resources). I'm not able to do this.

Can you give a particular example of a situation you were in when you couldn't do it? (A specific game and turn?) Also, if you can remember what the error message was that would be helpful.

I had same problem on T3 Rail of Let's Try This.

When it worked is shown at the bottom. I used Cotton Mill for my first card and Warrington $ Runcorn for my second card. When I reversed those, it gave me an error that the space wasn't on the card or soemthing like that.

So Coyotek4, try an industry instead of a location card for the 1st card and see if it works?

Here is move when it worked:

Yellow (qzhdad) uses a Cotton Mill card and a Warrington & Runcorn card to build a Tech Level 2 Shipyard on the 3rd industry space in Liverpool, taking coal from Purple (newrev)'s Tech 2 Coal Mine on the 3rd space in Manchester and iron from the Demand Track for ?3. The newly constructed Shipyard immediately flips.

I'm in game 91 and I can't do it. I get the following error message:

The system found the following problems with your move:

The space where you attempted to build is not in the location named on the card that you tried to use.

What are you trying to build snoozefest, and where? I can't find where the problem is, and I want to try entering your move myself.

I was able to make the move happen. I'm not sure where the problem is here. I'm working on an improved move interface, so hopefully if it is just an interface problem it will get better when that is finished.

I selected my cards at the top and bottom of the interface, and tried to build that shipyard you built for me. Not sure what I did wrong ....

Did you also select "Double-Action Build" as the type of move you wanted to do? "Build Industry" will not work.

I just used the Double Action build for the first time. I thought I selected Coal Mine but ended up building a Cotton Mill.

A comfirmation screen woulb be really useful, especially here where I just wasted TWO actions.

That happened because I broke the program just now. Sorry about that. I'll edit the game to fix it so that you built a coal mine instead.

Great! So I'm not shrink will be so happy to hear that.

Thanks Hammerite!

Okay, tile changed from cotton to coal on Manchester. Unfortunately, it shows up as a level one coal and should be a level two. I've already played my level one on Wigan.
