Sending more than 1 villager to work on/create a farm results in none working on it

Game version:

  • Build: 46777 (the bug was also present in former build)
  • Platform: Steam
  • Operating system: Windows 10


Assigning multiple villagers (at least two) to work on the same farm tends to have none of them work on it at all.

Reproduction steps:

The bug may not reveal itself the first time when attempting to replicate it. Usually it requires two attempts.

  1. Start a game in which you have at least two villagers, one farm and a town centre/granary.
  2. Select the villagers and assign them to work on the farm (not one by one, but all at the same time).

Also, when trying to build a farm having selected several villagers, at the end of the construction none of the villagers start working on said farm.

  • Three villagers refused to work on a recently built farm (the one on the right).
  • It was not possible to force any of the surrounding villagers to work on said farm.

Deleting farms and building them again seems like the only way to make farmers work in some cases… this issue happened again yesterday to me in The first punic war 3: The battle of Tunis.
