Problem with disappearing ceiling

Hi!
I'm trying to create a grid for LBA1 with a "disappearing ceiling piece". My problem is, that I can't use bricks in the disappearing piece that weren't used in the original grid. If I use such a brick, the game displays another brick, and if there are too many such bricks, the game simply crashes. Is there a workaround for that?

Are you using the same library for the base grid and ceiling?

Ah, I know. It's bacause each grid contains kind of list of layouts it uses. It is in order to make the game use as little memory as possible, but in return if a layout is not used by a grid, the game does not allocate memory for it, thus the weird behaviour and chrashes. I'm planning an option to save grids with the layout list containing all layouts from the lib, so this wouldn't happen, but in LBA 2 it would require to update also another value in different file to make it really working, and I don't know how the value is caclulated.

Anyway, I can make it so it will work for LBA 1 only for now. Expect this in beta 6.
