:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


Villager build sub menu is reset each time a villager is selected. This applies to both economy and military building sub menus. No buildings can be built when the issue hits as the sub menu options appear for a second before resetting to the main build . Clicking on villagers to execute resource gathering works as expected but no building options can be selected.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. There is no specific trigger for the issue.
  2. Select a villager, click the build menu and select either economy or military sub menu
  3. The UI immediately resets to the main building menu without allowing the user to select a building

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

The game must not reset to the main building menu. Player must be able to remain on the selection and choose a building of choice

It doesn’t appear to be getting any traction. The suggested approach was to disable mods and check game files integrity. I have never had any mods but the auto subscribed mods were disabled, uninstalled and reinstalled the game. That seemed to have fixed the issue and two weeks later it happened again. I’m not sure if a game update is interfering with the game settings or if there are game options that were enabled leading to this issue. I play vs the AI almost all of the times and I end up having to restart every 2nd game. The issue happens usually a few minutes into the game.

Did you ever get it resolved? It’s suddenly happening to me too. It’s not every game, more like about half of the time and I only play against AI.

Still happening. This issue isnt getting the attention but there are workarounds like if you chose to enable lock teams on game setup. It sucks but at least I can play without having to quit
