I’ve come across the situation sometimes where some items on the ground eventually; would unregister be the right word; from the pathfinding system and they just end up leaving the items and they taunt me because 1. I need them and 2. Even sometimes chopping down trees, immediately they should collect them, but no, they don’t. This isn’t a situation of prioritization on my end, they just idle and rather not doing anything. Maybe after a few minutes a 'ling will run over and get a piece of whatever item but then it’ll return to nothing at all.
Not able to get a screen cap in full-screen but just imagine 9 'lings sitting around a fire on idle while there’s easily 50 pieces of wood to be picked up on the outlying part of my little town.
Don’t know if anyone else gets this, but it’s definitely something rough to work with. Now I know something a few people will say, save, load, should work. -Nope. Save quit reload game… -Nope.
Oh and sometimes even items in my stockpile just seem to… Not register anymore. They’ll be there, but then my guys won’t touch them, or even move them if I tried to relocate the stockpile.
