Citizens remain in roster after dead

Title: Citizens remain in the citizen manager after they die

Summary: My swordsman died after fighting a goblin. She remains on the citizen manager roster, with her task set to “Engaged in Combat!”

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Train swordsman
  2. Fight goblin(s)
  3. Die

Expected Results: I expected the grave to appear, with the person removed from list.

Actual Results: Grave appears, person disappears, yet remains on the list.


Not sure if they’re to remain on the list as “Dead”. This could get confusing if you have many dead units and are trying to manage. Any plans on dead citizens being replaced? (i.e. a new citizen appears a few days later?)

Attachments: Black screen on capture, unfortunately. Easily reproducible though!

‘‘The same’’ thing happens when new people join your village. They walk around and work, but they won’t appear on the list.

you can save then reload then it will have the dead citizen name be gone but tombstone is there. same goes for new citizens

This was reported somewhere before, but I can’t seem to find the topic or post in question.

In fact, the entire UI freezes at that point—see this topic.

Indeed, the save/load is a workaround.
