Preventing barge collapse question


QuakeNaked

Recommended Posts

I was harvesting cement from a pallet with cement bags on it. The pallet was on a barge, but it did not appear to be a supporting block to anything else on the barge. After I harvested it the block disappeared and the whole barge collapsed. I don't understand why it happened, so I was hoping to get some explanation of why it caused the collapse.

 

For reference the block positions were: pallet block was sitting on a barge floor block, an HVAC unit block on the N side of the pallet also sitting on a floor block, and a stack of cardboard boxes block on the E side also on a floor block. The S and W side of the pallet block was not touching any other block, and there was nothing above the pallet block.

My first experience of this was quite funny.

 

Leapt on the barge and smashed the cabin door with an axe. I then heard exploding wood coming from somewhere, looked around the side to see the boat slowly exploding from front to back. Taking this as my cue to leave I jumped onto the rail of the boat and threw myself towards the jetty... almost made it as well :-)

 

Ended up crawling to shore while grinning like a madman.

And then have floating structures?

Was thinking more of a well thought out mechanic, like such foundation blocks would act together to provide support as like from bedrock for anything above, but all blocks in the group would need stability. If the block group loses stability, everything above gets calculated as normal from bedrock, not from foundation.

 

Pretty straightforward and would not allow floating structures.

How would that stop the boat from collapsing?
