EDIT: Please hold this, I’m not actually sure this is to do with ACE at all. I’m doing some research into it right now. If you don’t hear back from me, assume this has been resolved.
All Combat Hearthlings engage in combat with one of the Footsoldiers, who continues their usual duties. When they reach the Hearthling, they do not attack, stop engaging in combat, then re-engage the friendly Hearthling around 1/2 second later.
Demoting the Hearthling to a non-combat role causes the combat hearthlings to choose a new Combat Hearthling to engage with them.
Turning off their job will cause their behavior to return to normal.
Steps to reproduce:
Unfortunately, I haven’t seen this bug before, and cannot advise any steps to reproduce. What I can say is this began to happen after the update which removed default patrol behaviour when the Job was enabled.
Hearthlings should only engage with hostile entities.
Hearthlings enter a loop of chasing, in a large group, the designated Hearthling.
I had limited success unpromoting all the combat hearthlings. Not long after, however, my game crashed, likely due to me removing the Patrol Points mod or some other stonehearthy reason. Until then, the game had been stable.
