Terrain cannot be deformed here!

Why in the world I always get this message. I want to place animal pen on flat surface and yet I always get this message.

If the terrain in question involves any road or anything similar, it will not allow deformation.

I've heard some people have issues with something simple as a tree branch or piece of cut grass.

Best solution I've heard so far is plowing the area and then using the roller to delete the field you just created.

Yeah I had issues with small pieces of wood, but it always says Blocked by object.
But this literally always says Terrain cannot be deformed here.
Funny thing is I could place large chicken coop and small cow pasture in that area together. But large cow pasture alone, no way.

I've placed things at places, reloaded the savegame and couldn't place anything at the exact same spot... The spot was still empty, as I reloaded the savegame...(?)

This is the same issue I have, place an object, sell it, and then CAN NOT put the SAME object in exactly the SAME place.

Really this should be called a bug as it 'stops' you from playing the game properly.

Nice to see that a lot of folk have wasted money on another incomplete/buggy product by Giants, who no doubt are waiting for an outside modder to fix their own stuff-up, that way they don't have to waste money. Which really means, business as normal at Giants, make a half complete project, release it and then have someone fix it for free.

Did you try raising it up and down?

I have seen the placement be very tricky, a very tiny movement will turn it green to place. Also, Fenix's suggesting has worked as well for me.

I didn't know you can raise it up or down. How do you do that?

That probably explains why everytime I place something it's 5 ft higher than then terrain around it. :lol:

On Xbox I believe you use L1 + the right stick to raise and lower it. When the price is lowest, you should be as close to level as possible.

I had the same problem. I even test it with a spot with one single tree in the way. Even after I stumped grinded tree is still gave same message. This is another pretty big problem when you pay this ubsurd premium on land we cant use properly.
