The pathing has been broken for the third time in less than two years due to an update that introduced new features. And it needs to be reverted to its previous state again.

I’ve noticed now that when I send villagers to build walls, sometimes they stop building and you hear the obstructed building sound. This seems to be because sometimes the villager itself is standing on the next tile and instead of moving off of it first, then building it, it now doesn’t move off but tries to build anyway and can’t. They don’t move on to the next tile either unless the entire wall was queued. They just stop building altogether and go idle.

Happened consistently when I try to build walls in the 3 games I’ve played since patch was released.

wow 3 times they keep breaking and fixing? so they can show they are doing something KEK


Yes, this is a bug I already reported to the team.
