When start playing civs with a 50 food crate, such as French or Portuguese, one of the two things below always happens.

  1. Vills gather 50 food crates first and stand idle for 1 or 2 sec.

  2. Vills gather all the crates first except for a 50 food crate and stand idle for 1 or 2 sec.
    (which causes me to forget to gather the 50 food crates and start hunting)

Hi @SonsyDionysus96 ~

We could not reproduce the second issue, can you provide us more information? Maybe a video?

You are right with the first one! Thanks, we’re now tracking this issue :blush:
