Hello all, I’m a fairly recent player of Stonehearth and I must say I’m enjoying the game quite a lot so far. Excellent work you guys have done!
So here are some issues I’ve come across that I couldn’t find in other threads (I admit I didn’t spend loads of time searching) that may need to get looked into:
Building - if I design a custom, erase some flooring for stairs, and issue the build order the hearthlings don’t want to start building even if they aren’t busy. I saved and reloaded and they began, but only dug out the first floor and left the rest. I’m using the free floor blocks to create stairs. I had success in the previous build when adding stairs after the building was built, but haven’t had a chance to try it in the new one yet.
Item placement - I was placing wooden fencing around an area and when I used the mouse wheel to zoom, it instead treated each click of the wheel rotation as a left click, and also placed down fencing on the same location (not stacked) for each click. The hearthlings continued to place the item in the same spot repeatedly and I was unable to undeploy or move them.
Hearthling spawn - I earned a new hearthling but it spawned stuck in the wall of a building. I built a ladder but he was really stuck.
Sounds effect - when transitioning from day to night and vice-versa, the effects played (owl hoot, rooster crow) cause a noticible frame rate dip for a second. My pc is not a gimp by any means, and I understand it’s alpha and optimization isn’t priority, but as short as the day/night cycles are this happens every few minutes and has caused multiple misclicks.
That is really all I can see being technical issues so far. I did have a question about the distance hearthlings are willing to go for things: is it related to the Will statistic? I can get them to go harvest something fairly far from the standard, but once the collect the initial blocks they don’t tend to go back for the rest.
Thanks again for the great game, and for taking a look at this thread.
