Characters stuck in dining tables Summary:
When you place three tables in a row characters find it really difficult to place them, they come and go multiple times. Then, if they are placed - they cannot remove them. It seems that it reproduces more often if villagers try to approach them from a corner.
Steps to reproduce:
Place three tables in a row touching each other at diagonal of a campfire
Try to remove all of them
No problems with placing or removing non-overlapped objects. Video depicting problem:
Another confirmation. Attempting to build the default shared dining hall, and whilst two of the tables–in my case the far right, and second from the left–were placed fine, every hearthling attempting to place the remaining two got stuck on the corners of the existing tables. I was able to rip the second one from the left up somehow, but the far right table cannot be picked back up. It seems that the issue only occurs when hearthlings attempt to place/remove tables at diagonal angles to them.
I can confirm as well. Hearthlings get stuck on tables, chairs, and occasionally fences when coming at them from an angle to place something. Hearthlings also don’t really prioritize undeploying objects, so the hearthling is either stuck there until someone is free to undeploy what they are stuck on, or their needs win out. In the latter circumstance, I’ve gotten upwards of three or four hearthlings stuck trying to place the same item all in a row.
Hey there @LittleOracle, welcome the the Discourse! Thanks for letting us know about the error. Most of the devs are on a (well deserved) vacation this week, but I am sure they will take a look at this when they return.
I never experienced this bug before, but it started happening to me in Rayya’s Children, where the tables in the dining hall don’t touch at all. They can be placed with no problem, but if I try and remove them, often 2 of the tables cannot be interacted with and the worker trying will begin to vibrate.
