Same thing for me. No problems until update!

Same thing for me. VERY annoying.

We’re already tracking this issue :slight_smile:
Thanks for the report!

It’s literally killing off on my villagers I can’t even control them

It’s infuriating I click to build multiple houses and my whole economy stops to go build houses when I only want one villager to do it. You can’t override the villagers either. Hopefully it’s fixed soon because it’s unplayable

I learned, if you are going to build multiple things you must deactivate the automatic villager assignment. So the rest of the settlers will continue working and only one will be building. I saw a post that they were already working to fix this
