Reported previously about villagers getting stuck in Estates here: Villager occasionally get's stuck in Estate building

Noted on a game last night with the latest build that my two of my allies had villagers get stuck in mills. One was stuck in British (Green) players mill, one villager stuck in one mill. My other ally French (Blue) had two villagers stuck in one mill and one stuck in another mill. Record game file attached along with screenshots. I noticed that this occurred somewhere around the 42-44-ish minute mark.

When this occurs you cannot “pull” them out of the building. You can assign them to work on the mill, but they do not show a gather rate. They also do not show as an idle villager. Obviously, you can delete the building and get them back.

We are aware of this issue and we are working on a solution. Thanks for the report!


Awesome Thanks!

Are more record files helpful or are they not necessary?

We do not need anymore at the moment. Thanks!

Hello @DirefulLily9407 or other devs

Villagers getting stuck in mills and estates was fixed last year at some point if I recall correctly. But it became an issue again while back. Villagers again are regularly getting stuck in mills and estates.

Is the currently being tracked, or should A new bug report be submitted?
