I built a custom wall and a few slabs, and both of them get about halfway done and then don’t finish building.
Steps to reproduce:
- Build a custom building and wait?
Building got finished.
Building ignored halfway through.
That’s a picture of a slab building I made to finish off a wall I was designing. It says no more resources can be put into the building (178/0?) and the people are just ignoring it as if it is finished. Restarting the game doesn’t fix it.
Version Number and Mods in use:
Alpha 19 release-687
Not a fix, but usually when this happens it’s because a hearthling can’t access the area that still needs work. Try putting a ladder to the top, or a ladder to any area that looks unfinished or out of place.
Welcome to the forum, @Nitrochemy
Could you upload the templates that were failing, and / or the savefile where it got stuck at 178/0 so that we can take a look at them?
To upload a savefile:
- Find the save folder for the saves you wish to upload. By default, they are located in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth\saved_games (assuming a default Steam install).
- Zip the folder.
- Right click the folder (should be a long set of numbers).
- Left click on
Send to in the menu that appears.
- Left click on `Compressed (Zipped) folder).
(Optional) Rename the folder to something different than the default set of numbers.
- Upload the save.
- If the zip is less than 10 MB, you can upload it directly. Either use the upload button or drag and drop it into the compose window,
- If larger than 10 MB, upload it to a cloud storage site like Dropbox, Google Drive, File Dropper, etc. and post the sharing link here.
Unfortunately I deleted that object/building because it wasn’t being
finished and I didn’t make a template because I was just filling a hole in
a wall I was making.
However, (sort of) good news, I tried building a wall structure that seems
to have the same problem in that it won’t be finished, this time it’s stuck
on 224/1, and I have the resources to complete it. It seems they gave up on
the building while making the scaffolding.
I have attached the save file if you wish to take a look at it still.

That was, because your Hearthlings couldn’t reach the lower levels. As soon as I let them build a ladder (marked with the red arrow) they started working
Hope that helps ^^
Greets and have a nice day
Thank you, do you think you’d be able to point out when a hearthling can’t
reach somewhere? That would be very helpful.
If I’m not mistaken, Hearthlings can only go up/down 1 ‘block’ so if there is a heigh difference of >1 they can’t reach it. Take the provided sreenshot (my last post) for example. On the left are a few steps with a difference of one, but on the bottom ones all have a difference of more than one so they wouldn’t be able to climb down there to build the scaffolding. Hope that helps and is understandable.
Many thanks @Raze!
In general, we would eventually like to either make it so that hearthlings can always get to where they’re going, or somehow tell you that they’re stuck. Adding @not_owen_wilson who works on building, just so he can take a look.
