Title: Some issues upon joining traveling carpenter
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised when a traveling carpenter wished to join my bustling town (especially since the carpenter I already had wasn’t doing much crafting). However, I found that when I selected him to have a closer look, the information normally showing up in the bottom left was no longer there (Fig. 1). It turns out the same was true for any other citizen or object I subsequently selected (Fig. 2). The guy did not show up in the Citizens and Crafters & Professionals dialogs either. Finally, the sun icon in the top right of my screen froze, day apparently no longer progressing.
I thought the entire day-night cycle had frozen rather than just the icon, as the day seemed to last rather long, but upon reloading, I had two ‘rays’ of sunlight left, so perhaps time had continued and only the updating of the icon was broken. Also, upon reloading I was able to view information on selected citizens/objects again, and Campton (the new carpenter) had shown up in my dialogs (Fig. 3).
In all honesty, I am not even 100% sure these issues really were caused by poor Campton, but it is close, something like 90%. I tend to click things a lot and look at the information, so I likely would notice something like this quickly, and I clicked Campton as soon as he showed up, which is when I first noticed it. The sun icon I noticed later – it may yet be unrelated with a probability higher than this 10%. Perhaps should have made a separate report, but I’m making so many already!
Steps to reproduce: I guess you would just start a game and wait for a traveler to show up who wishes to join your town. Then see if these same problems occur.
Expected results: Campton would join, I would look at his information, the sun would shine ever less brightly, and life would be familiar and good.
Fig. 1: Campton’s name and information do not show up in the bottom left upon selection. Note his name also is missing from the Citizens dialog.
Fig. 2: The same is now true for other citizens, and objects as well (not shown).
Fig. 3: Upon reloading, Campton’s name shows up in the management dialogs. Selection also works again (not shown).
