Shepherds target sheep that are not closest

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 44834
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When a group of shepherds finish a sheep and go to the next one, they could ignore a sheep right beside them and go to one far outside the TC.

Notice that in the video below it happens 3 times.

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to make the bug easier to occur:

  1. Let a group of shepherds collect food from a sheep and DON’T shift queue or retask them
  2. Have two or more sheep nearby
  3. Let a sheep that’s not closest walk into the shepherds
  4. Notice that shepherds may not target the currently closest sheep next

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Shepherds always go for the closest sheep.

When we don’t get fixes, at least we have memes :laughing:


Yes, happens a lot and even with queuing sometimes. Very annoying bug. And they do the same with the trees, making a hole where you less expect it so they welcome the enemies riders. I feel like villagers are making the game a bit unpleasant to play. You need to keep supervising what they are doing through the whole game.
