:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Start a match on a map that is likely to have huntable animals already near the map border
  2. Issue a “gather food” order on the animals near the map border
  3. As the villagers slowly work through the hunted animals, they gradually follow the animals as they’re fleeing and get stuck in the “outside of playable area”
