Well, because it would have made it a little simpler to place buildings relative to already-constructed roads rather than having to build new ones all the time. I was hoping, but without much hope.
Well, you can replace buildings on the rubble, does that help at all?
Well, it's just that I'm so used to games that allow you to rotate buildings before setting them down; when you can't rotate, you may as well just build a few straight roads and offshoots, and then place them on there. But yes, this is negated somewhat by being able to delete buildings. Love the game; I just think rotating would have made for more efficient layouts.
