DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
Villagers forget to build and just go to the middle of the building foundation and stand idle there. If they were queued to do something else after building, for example chop wood, they will just skip building and go chop right away.
It happens ONLY in multiplayer. Hence I assume it’s a lag issue, but not necessarily because the rest of my game flows normally without any kind of lag whatsoever, while this happens about 20-35% times I send a vill to build!
No, it’s not because there some kind of obstruction (vills attacked, something blocking the foundation), it happens in any kind of situation, even most normal ones like selecting a building with a hotkey and placing it down with left click. Then the vills goes there, forgets to build, and stands in the middle of the foundation. No obstructions.
How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!
100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
Only in multiplayer, and in about 1/2 or 1/3 times a vill is commanded to build. Which is a lot!
List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- It happens to me, not anyone else (I’ve checked on Reddit and other places). However, you can see it happen by replaying any of my ranked matches from my point of view.
- Honestly, I’m just desperate for a solution. It makes the ranked matches unplayable. Important buildings not going up on time, quickwalling impossible, etc.
What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
Villagers should build! 11
ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.
Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.
It says new users cannot upload files. However, you can easily find it. It’s an 1v1 Ranked Arabia match Tatars vs Ethiopians I played on May 1st.
