I started a new game and got my first footman.I needed more so I told another hearthling to be a footman.No matter what I do, this won’t happen.The hearthling will do what he wants and not what I tell him to do.I restarted the game twice and nothing happened…I had all the requirements for him to be a footman. This game is on hard mode and I never experienced the same bug earlier.Please help
Can you post a screenshot? Did you have a second sword for the second footman, or was the sword still being used by the first footman?
I have 2 swords.Otherwise the game would not allow me to promote him
Hrm. What’s the hearthling doing instead? Can he path to the sword?
Belated welcome to the forum, @TheHellLord472
Do you have the savefile where this was happening? Could you upload it?
Here is my suggestions:
- Create a new item for promoting, use console to remove all unreachable item: dump_inaccessible_items
- Try using console command: ai_reconsider
- Go to Citizens Panel (Press C), pause all following work types: Build, Mine, Job. Leave Haul on continue. After the hearltings finish restocking items, turn all back on.
- Reset game.
- Also remove any the queue tasks if they can’t be finished. If you wanna make sure, remove all queued tasks. (try this step before step 2 if it still doesn’t work after step 4)
