well. i got one Armored Car some builds ago and put a kitchen unit on it to the rear side. it was show a ‘&’ in symbols. after build from October, 11th kitchen unit became hidden and didn’t indicated on the board, so it was like under an armoured plate ‘-’. why not, it’s more aestetically)
but i got something strange instead of it. i can’t find ‘kithen unit’ and ‘car welding rig’ in ‘install’ of car’s menu. so i can’t set a rig even i have this one and all instuments.
Plating takes a full square just like a board now (due to being a big ol’ sheet of solid metal).
You shouldn’t have been able to put plating with a kitchen unit before anyway, I think it had the NO_REINFORCE flag on it… but that may have only stopped you putting plating on a kitchen unit, not the other way around.
The vehicle construction rules have been changed: Every square must now start with a frame, and other things go on top of that. This lets you put boards over wheels, for instance, and other part combinations that were not allowed before.
