Hearthlings spawn confused and stay so[ACE issue]

Hi all, thanks for taking the time to read and possibly help me on this one.

I was playing with hearthlings stats for some funny vid I wanted to make and I was wondering if anyone already may know the reason for their “confused” status.

No search (forum, steam or google) gave me any relevant information.

The only reference to the issue was dated to something like two years ago -

Thanks people!

Edit: I’ve ticked off ACE and the problem resolved - isn’t there a way to play with ace and troubleshoot this issue?
