[edit] this is the error. it happens when calling the create auction function as described below.

Gas estimation errored with the following message (see below). The transaction execution will likely fail. Do you want to force sending?
execution reverted

Been trying to create an nft auction and succeeded in simpler prototype but am having trouble actually creating the auction for my actual use case.. As the title says the problem is gas estimation error and atm it's on the Create Auction function, both pasted below or here found in gist and base implmentation here or scroll up from first link (gist)

function createAuction(
        ERC1155 _nftAddress,
        uint256 _tokenId,
        address _seller,
        uint128 _startPrice,
        uint256 _duration,
        uint128 _highestBid,
        address _highestBidder
    )public payable
        _escrow(msg.sender,address(_nftAddress), _tokenId);
        Auction memory auction = Auction(

I was foolishly grabbing the nft address I guess inappropriately. When I changed some of the ERC1155 declarations as simply address and referenced the address to set the erc1155 ref obj using the nft address arg I was already providing in the function it worked.
