My footmen have stuff in their backpacks and they do not want to store them.
I can confirm this in 2521 that it still exist
- have a worker do a task that collects any object (puts it into their inventory/backpack)
- before they empty their inventory into any type of storage, promote them to a footman
- enjoy the item you will never get back unless you un-promote.
I just noticed the same thing. Was going to open a new thread when I saw this one. The Footmen are always on duty and they never empty whatever they had on their backpacks when they were recruited.
Have Fun, Kyth.
