Non Domesticated animals provide infinite carry capacity

Title. It sounds crazy, but every time I hunt non domesticated animals, most notably boar, my villagers do not drop off food until the animal is completely depleted of resources. The picture attached is from the Art of war, Fast castle training. This happens to me consistently, 100% of the time, including in online games with other players. I have reinstalled/repaired the game already with no change. This is annoying as I have to manually drop off food to keep villager production going.

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Farm from boar, deer, Wolves not tested. Villagers get infinite capacity.
  2. That’s all

It is not exactly a bug. Hunters have 35 carry capacity in feudal. With wheelbarrow they get 44 and with handcart 66. That is why some starter tutorials will say to continue drop off food from boars from time to time.

He is right, 30 carry capacity looks totally normal for hunters.

lol goddamnit. I have a 1500 ELO friend I asked about it, and I googled the ■■■■ out of this and found nothing. Plus other randos I know who play AoE, everyone told me it was weird. ffs. Thank you.
