Can't place a Stone Pot (or grinder) on a Stone road

Summary: I had just promoted a farmer to the cook class, and I wanted to place the Stone Pot and Stone Grinder down on A Stone road I had built. However, when I clicked the “move” button, and clicked again to place the pot, it disappeared. When i opened up the building tab, I could see the transparent copy of it, but none of my hearthlings would place it, and it was still in the town inventory. I then tried to place the pot on dirt, and when i did, The pot was removed from the inventory, and a farmer placed it.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Produce a small section of stone road.
  2. Have a cook make a stone pot.
  3. Use the “move furniture button” to place the pot on the road.

Expected Results:
I expected a hearthling to immediately grab the pot from a stockpile, and place it on the road.

Actual Results:
They did nothing of the sort, and the pot remained in the stockpile.

I also could “place” the pot multiple times, on different sections of the road. All resulted in the same lack of pot-placement.


Without building tab open.
