Heya so in the old game when you placed a building they just went and stopped what they were doing and went and built it. Now they continue chopping down the tree before they go and build it. Its very annoying, been playing this game for 20 years dont like this change.
You accidentially use shift queue.
Go to options and set the shift queue to legacy and also check your hotkeys.
If your villager is currently collecting a resource and you shift-queue an action, they’ll finish the action before moving onto doing whatever action you shift-queued them to do. In order to not have that happen, finish your shift-queued action with a right click to make them immediately handle the new order.
How do I set the shift que to legacy? Cant find it.
