Farmer dont want to work!

So, i tested some things on the market before you get into your world and bought the following items: Farmers hoe, Herbalist Staff and a sword!

The footman took his sword and begin patroll. None have got the staff yet and then i gave the Farmers Hoe to a man and he just goes around on the same place. It’s like he dont want to work! :frowning:

He just stands there and walking soulless :triumph: (Pic belove)

hey there @Illuminatic, welcome to the discourse :smile:

i can’t get this to repro by starting a new game and buying the farmers hoe, were there any other things that you did differently than normal?

Looks like you have a farm plot designated. Did you select crops other than “fallow”? Can the farmer path to the farmland plot?

Hmmm, I did start to build the house then assigned the farmers hoe.

What do you mean with “Fallow”? And the path should work cause it was’nt so far away and no building or anything was in the way.

click the farm plot and make sure it has a crop selected, like carrots or corn or turnips.

Oh, yea it haves. One carrot and one turnip on each.

hmm… could you perhaps provide your save file? to find the save go to this file path,

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth\saved_games

if you don’t know which save is the newest one, you can check the screenshot inside the save folder, then zip the individual save’s folder (not the entire saved_games folder) and upload it directly to the discourse either by using the upload button , or by dragging and dropping the .zip file.

if the save is larger then 10mb you could upload it to a site like googledrive or dropbox and provide a download link.

I didn’t save the game, but i did the same thing again in a new game and this time it worked perfetctly. It could just be me? A little but unlucky maybe? :slight_smile:

I guess you dont know the stats of the hearthling that you made a farmer? I wonder if that was part of the reason

hmm… well i’ll mark this as not_reproducible, if you run into it again, don’t hesitate to say so!

Dunno if this is related, but in my game. My soldiers randomly stop patrolling, going about the hauling duty as per normal, but isntead of putting stuff in crates, they stop and just stare at the container with a stupid look on their face.

Happens infrequently to me and that state is cleared by putting down an attack, move or defend flag somewhere.

Try promoting your farmer back to footman, assiging a move flag and once he reaches the point, promote him back to farmer?

Could try if i it happens again!

When i want a farmer i usually look for speed and spirit.
