So I try to change the template type of a cell ingame. This is on the Desert theme, going from an empty, passable cell to an impassable brush.

Code:
   CellClass * cellptr = &Map[257];
   struct {
      TemplateType TType;      // Template type.
      unsigned char TIcon;      // Template icon number.
   } temp;
   temp.TType = TEMPLATE_BRUSH1;
   temp.TIcon = 0;
   cellptr->TType = temp.TType;
   cellptr->TIcon = temp.TIcon;
   cellptr->Recalc_Attributes();
   Map.Flag_Cell(257);


After triggering this code the cell is no longer passable as it should be.
In the classic graphics the cell gets correctly updated (both the passable status and the GRAPHIC itself), but in the remastered graphics it does NOT (not GRAPHIC update).

What am I missing here?

The Remaster graphics side is strange; it has a system of cell graphics overrides that was used to patch up bad cliff connections and such in the original maps.

So while classic terrain displays everything exactly like it is in the game, there's a lot more going on on the GlyphX side than just the raw map, and it may just be that it caches these graphics, so changing the map cell has no effect on it.

Do remember the GlyphX side is a black box; we can only affect its behaviour through xml files, but it can never be truly modded like the core game can.
