Maintain X amount can be push repeatedly

so it makes me wonder how much he will maintain

I suppose the ‘maintain’ que should be a secondary queue instead of a mixed queue
in that way the game can see if its already in the maintain que then I should not requeue.

I might have misunderstood this …

The Maintain X function should mean that your settlers will always strive to have X amount of a particular object in the stockpile … You decide how many to maintain?

I haven’t used it myself, it might be that the functionality for it isn’t in place yet.

well the main point is that I didn’t expect to have multiple maintain X amounts of the same item.

This could confuse people. Maybe if you click maintain and the item is already in the queue , it would ‘jump’ to the item to see how much your are currently already maintaining ?
