I know it sounds crazy, but it actually isn't. One of the best ways of limiting unintended solutions is to plase items that only has the function that you can't place anything else there. I have been using platforms of diferent temper than Eets for this in quite a few levels, but it isn't always the prettiest solution, and the platforms are quite big. Sometimes too big to place in the critical spot.

Sometimes all it takes to prevent a trivial solution for a neat puzzle is to make sure the player can place a certain item everywhere but on a small critical area. I would thus want stuff that don't do anything. Don't block shots, Eets etc. but prevents placements of items. Something pretty. Multiple kinds of stuff would be nice, maybe some kind of background terrain...

Another thing that would be nice is indestructable terrain. That would also help the level creator to prevent trivial solutions.

I hope this makes sense Wink

Cool! I like that idea for making puzzles: adding items that don't affect the level, but prevent players from placing items in certain locations!

In order to make it even better for a level creator it would be nice if you in the level editor could place locked items and Eets, and terrain over the items that don't do anything, Wink

Sounds exactly like the building-ban zone in this game.
