I noticed this issue from the feb patch. Extreme AI goes idle and doesn’t build anything.
Any new villagers just stand idle next to the TC.

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

Many mad random maps, zetnus hyper random, regular yukutan(sometimes)

Hi @AbPSlayer
Do you have a record with timestamp on a non custom map?
Thanks for the report.

no. i will try to replicate it in a non custom map. it is rare on a non custom map but it did happen once or twice in the last two months.

@Felizon89 here it is happening on MegaRandom.

Timestamp around 20:30 - 24:00.

You can check any AI in the recording and you will notice vills standing idle.
This happens to all the ai’s at once and fixes itself after some time. But donno what triggers it.
I checked their resources and they have enough to make farms/houses.

This issue is much more frequent in custom maps.

Screenshots, video recording and game file below.

Hi @AbPSlayer
A member of the team is asking me for a savegame instead of a replay in order to investigate the issue. If you happen to have one, could send it? Thank you :slight_smile:

I didnt save the megarandom games. i have a save from a custom map that just happened today. Save is at the end of the game. I can give more saves from custom maps if needed. Non custom will take me another month or so. lol
