My game becomes extremely sluggish following construction of my first building. This has only occurred in the latest patch (2534), and I believe it is due to high LUA usage; the bar in the bottom right hand corner is constantly a combination of blue, yellow, pink, and/or orange, with green only appearing once I pause the game (and this only fixes it until I hit play again). It becomes completely debilitating in the midst of my second building.
I’m not positive about it, but I believe this is causing the goblins/undead to be completely… err… inept? In every town I’ve started since the last patch, no enemies have taken a swing at my Hearthlings. The only things they seem to attack are my stockpiles (if they can get there), and I don’t think they have any effect when they do so. Essentially, I’m able to take on a whole pack of undead with a lone worker (not a footman) with no negative result.
Furthermore, when the goblin camps spawn, and you have to face the big goblin dude, my Hearthlings can just run into the camp swinging, and the goblins will just be walking around like they’re patrolling (or sitting by their fire, etc). Again, this has only occured in the last patch (2534).
Wow this was a really long post; basically I wanted to know if anybody else had either of these problems (or both?) as I have a pretty low-end computer and didn’t want to mis-file a bug.
