Villager goes idle after shift-clicking a tree that has disappeared in the meantime

  • GAME BUILD #: 56005
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


If you build e.g. a house with a villager and shift-click on a tree, the villager is supposed to go chop the tree after he has finished building the house. If the tree has disappeared in the meantime, however, because other villagers had been tasked to it, the house-building villager goes idle after finishing the house.

This bug had already been fixed a few patches ago (don’t remember the version number), but it has reappeared since (don’t exactly remember which patch either).

: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. Task a villager to build a house and shift-click a tree.
  2. Task other villagers to the tree so that it disappears before the house is finished.
  3. Watch the house builder go idle after finishing the house.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

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

If the tree that was shift-clicked has disappeared, the villager shoud go to a different tree of the same forrest instead of becoming idle. (Same behaviour as with TC gather points.)
