I dont care how it will work, as long as this happens. Currently I play the game on hardmode, and it's just impossible to get past the (I think) 7th level, greenpool. Here's what happened to me in just one session:
One or two earthquakes happen a year, and they deal -insane- damage to my machinery. No problem normally, but for some reason my handymen are all glitched and they do not fix machinery unless I specifically tell them to (normally they perform proper maintenance). The only time handymen walk in to machines is RIGHT after they are about to blow, killing the handymen. In fact, during my last game I got fed up with 2 machines blowing up (inflator and hairdresser or w/e it's called) and I replaced -everything-. Thats right, every machine. Since I already had nearly every plot bought, I decided to place rooms I really needed the most as additional extra's which filled up the remaining space. Not long after, another earthquake took place. In total, in a brief time I had the following things happen:
earthquake 1 = destroyed Inflator, Cast remover. My fault, they were outdated and I didn't replace them.
Earthquake 2 = destroyed operating theater, hair restorer. Got fed up, replaced -everything- with new and improved machines. Set several handymen on full-mechanics only (roughly 6).
Earthquake 3 = destroyed Shower, X-ray, Scanners x2, Operating Theater, Cardio, hair restorer, Inflator, Slicer.
I quit the game instantly. There was no way for me to win this level with so many machines broken and no way to repair the rooms. I don't know why but many rooms were glitched as I noticed personnel no longer entering them (or leaving them when I placed them in), which was sure to also not help me.
tl;dr the destroyed rooms need a fix. Wouldn't it be possible to just use the "cut" option to remove a room entirely for a fee? I don't specifically need a new animation or system for this, just the ability to remove the destroyed room. Additionally just a way to "break" machinery without them exploding would also be fine.
