:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

:point_down: These details are CRITICAL; DO NOT skip them or your issue may not be reviewed.

  • GAME BUILD #: 7314341
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

If villagers and military units are selected together, the patrol and attack command does not behave as expected.

  • Ordering the build command, the command applies only to the villagers and the military units are not effected, as expected
  • Ordering the attack command, the command applies to the military as expected. But it also gives a move command for the villager to head to the target location of the attack command, which is not expected.
  • Ordering the patrol command by hotkey does not have an effect for either villagers or military, wich is not expected

The patrol command is not shown on the command panel, but the attack command is shown.

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

There need to be unique hotkeys for (military-)build, patrol, attack

Thanks for the tracking, whatever that means 11

I can’t recall if this behaviour of mixed military and villagers was the same for all versions of DE.

I recall setting up my hotkeys for the purpose to use patrol, if villagers are also selected. But that might have been on userpatch.
