:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

In the Fire, Ice and Steel story mode “PIRATES!” scenario, on the player’s starting island there are two palm trees on the South coast by a cliff. It’s not possible to order a settler to chop down these trees; in addition, the wrong icon is displayed when hovering over them with a settler selected.

This issue is also present in Age of Empires III (2007), but only when playing Fire, Ice and Steel in The WarChiefs or The Asian Dynasties; NOT the original game.
