[AOE3 DE] [BUG] Troops getting stuck in the ditches, cliffs, Water, buildings & Native Settlements

I think for now we should all keep our explores away from Trading posts, I am sure this is a native trick to steal our head-skin!

villagers and troops also get stuck in this and sometime barracks/warhuts for me

My Explorer got stuck in a group of trees. I had to have villagers cut them down.

During my last game this explorer got downed. When I tried to build a trade post on the build site it said it was obstructed and couldn’t be built. The game before I had a huntable deer stuck inside a trade post zone and I couldn’t build a trade post. This is happening very frequently in my games.

I have had my Crossbowman teleported into an unreachable spot on the seccond mission, it seems AOE3: DE has some issues with pathfinding of the AI and collision detection.

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Careful when moving units around with your explorer, they will clip into the corners of the trading post and become members of the flying Dutchman, and never leave (better hope their raged fighters)

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. have an army or a small group of soldiers and select them all
  2. have the explorer selected and build a trading post
    3.the units will surround the post (as they naturally do) and no clip into the corners or the trading post or the area around
    4.(this can also be done when moving an army through it)

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Become free men

:arrow_forward: ACTUAL RESULT

Part of the crew, part of the ship
(there is a slight chance that the units, if ranged fighters, may continue attacking from the post where they clipped into the trading post)

Hi AnkitSaiyan,

It has affected gameplay for me. As units can get stuck in walls or unreachable spots and can’t move out of them, meaning you lose a couple of units. Which can mean the difference between winning a match or losing it!

I know. And for multiplayer it’s gonna suck. I was just talking about the Skirmish.

I think this bug is still there. Though I haven’t encountered it again but i saw enemy troops stuck in the water.
One thing is clear that this issue is happening alot near the trading post area.

I want to add that not only happens with the native settlements, also with trees and barracks, sometimes the units “get” inside the enemy building (they do not take shelter, they literally go through the building and get trapped)

Just happen with me too, my spies and my war dogs got stuck on a native settlement and i lost all my units to the ranged units of my enemy.

Yeah, for me it happened in the second mission:

Screenshot 2:

This Crossbowman just teleported up there, couldn’t move anywhere cause he isn’t supposed to even be there. Not that one Crossbowman is vital to my mission success, but it’s still stupid non the less!

This bug is going crazy… Everyone is facing it especially on the congested areas like in the caves, Native settlements etc. Idk if there developers are even checking it out. This issue needs to be fixed ASAP!

I’ve seen animals get stuck in trading post sockets as well as mines.

Seems to be everywhere.
