Villager IDLE after building a lumber camp

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Time after time I have seen villagers going idle after finishing an eco building, be it mining camp or lumber camp or mill. This never happened before this patch (45340) iirc.

Are we back to AoK days? :smirk:

this happens most often when putting vills in holes like in your picture. Best way to avoid is to shift-click them onto the next ressource.

but yeah better fix it, please :slight_smile:


Really? I will pay attention to that. Thanks!

I read from this website (Welcome to Aoe2Sheet!) that

When a villager is boxing himself into a 1-tile space between resources and a resource building, he will idle after the construction instead of starting to gather like normal. To avoid this, you can have a villager on the outside finish the construction while the villager on the inside is gathering resources.

Looks like a legacy bug.
