Hello, I noticed two problems with stockpiles. One is an old thing that always happened in my games: job change items are never put in a stockpile if you change the default settings; i mean: if you select only some of the categories to be stored there those items will be left around and never stocked (none of the categories work for them), even if you check “all” again they are still not stocked and you need a fresh default stockpile.
The second thing never happened to me before: I created a small default stockpile (to store job change items, but that’s not the point), and sometimes my townfolks go there in large groups and just move the items placed around… picking and dropping always in that small stockpile. After a while they eventually get bored and move on.
I hope it is understandable enough.
EDIT: I noticed that when someone is idle he tends to do it a lot. For example I removed my farms for excess of food, and now my farmer spends all day moving around objects in that 3x3 square.
I can confirm this as well, but in a larger setting (approx. 10 by 16 voxels). Settlers are constantly picking up and dropping items already in the stockpile–I also had a stockpile with only wood and stone in it, and they didn’t seem to bother with it. Perhaps this is particular to “All Items” (default) stockpiles, or certain items.
I’m pretty sure this is the case, from what I remember. Hopefully, Radiant can add the correct tabs to these items in the next alpha or so and possibly fix some of the bugs associated with stockpiles in the process.
unchecking a random resource from a stockpile will make the hoe and weaver spindle not be accepted there anymore.
only a new stockpile will accept the hoe
Steps to reproduce:
Build a hoe or weaver spindle
Have an unaltered stockpile or make one
3)edit what it will accept, by unchecking something
4)redit the stockpile so it will accept everything will not fix it.
Dont know what to expect, there isnt an icon in the stockpile for tools only the catagory “tools and goods”
in my opinion there should be one for these, a hamer icon for tools would make the most sense (these should include the saw, hoe, spindle etc. and future tools like the one for the mason and shepherd, and the problem shouldnt occur in the future.)
the Hoe or weaver spindle will only go in an unalterd stockpile none other
I only have screens viewing the hoe, but the weaver spindle responds the same way. As I started writing this post I only knew about the hoe, but checked other tools when i was almost finished with the post. and that is how I found out the same applies to the weaver spindle.
I believe this sort of thing has happened even before the latest builds, but definitely, these are stockpile problems I’ve experienced as well. Hoping it is just a lack of classification of the affected items, so the fix can come soon.
