I had really hope’d that this update from you guys would have fixed the idle worker issue, however I found tonight after playing for about an hour my workers all went randomly idle for seemingly no reason, yet again.
Instead of trying to debug this by tracking down the issue with the pathing… Why don’t you guys add a cancel task option?
For example… if the pathing issue is causing people to go idle due to wanting to grab something or complete a task it cannot, then why not add a list of tasks? For example if there was a list with every order I’ve given to my men, I could then remove some of those incompleted tasks. Tasks that complete normally would be removed off the list, but tasks that didnt seem to ever finish would still be on the list, then removed manually by the player if its causing a problem.
I would also like to see some kind of option for preferences, for example instead of every worker trying to fill every task, why not have a preference tab on each unit that alows you to choose what they do and do not do? That way you can have your miners focus on mining and your gatherers focused on gathering the mined materals. Verse… how it is now… they all mine everything first… then they all gather the materals and move them.
I like the idea of the game, but to be honest the bugs that prevent me from playing and the constant crashes make me wish I had waited to buy this game instead of rushing out to buy what feels like a unplayable bug-fest. The way it is now, its unplayable, between the crashes and the bugs that stop all gameplay (with idle) this isnt a game but rather a program that needs to be fixed. A game is fun, you play it for the joy or amusement that it brings you… I have never made it past day 14-15 and I crash every couple in-game days… This is not fun to me… I feel your company should be asking for money after the finished product is complete, not asking for us all to fund your dream of making this game out of our pockets, when it should be the other way around with gaming companys paying people to bug-test their game so its actually ready for to play. I feel like I’m paying you to bug-test your game that I’ve owned for a long, long time now with the same issues that are obviously not being fixed or addressed since they still exist… instead of every other legitimate game company paying players to play their game in order to get their bugs worked out.
Sorry if I seem a little salty here but I feel like I’ve been scammed since I bought a game a year ago that I’ve been unable to ever play properly without issues or crashing. This bugs me a bit since I have a insane computer that I’ve spent alot of money on so that I can play any game without problems or issues… yet this game still laggs and is obviously coded badly due to how much it bogs down my 12 core system with two 7970’s in crossfire. Battlefield 4 and crysis 3 run better then this game! And those are top end graphic games that use alot of cpu+gpu power… so why does your game take more resources and run worse then these two big recourse hog games?
