:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Villagers are tasked to build a town center in region that is currently out of sight. There is previously unseen enemy mining that partially overlaps the intended location of the town center (upper right corner of town center, left portion of mining camp). The villagers still start to build the town center. Note in the images provided below that town center is 27% complete when game ends.
