UPDATE on the below
Weird… As soon as I did a save to grab the files below and unpaused, the potter went right ahead and built the kiln. I’ll see if I can reproduce this in a clearer save.
I did insta-build after switching around the cooks to different guys to see if anything would trigger it to start again. I’ve just started a new game and I’m getting the same issue with the potter and the kiln (which doesn’t require any levels). They’ve built the wheel so that’s working.
I’ve followed the crafter in both cases around after promoting them to see what happens and they seem to be picking up the materials, then ‘forgetting’ the task and just doing idle/haul tasks.
Here’s the new save with the potter bug.
