Mining Priority

I’ve noticed some priority issues with mining in the latest build.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start building a big building
  2. promote a mason
  3. set mason “not” to build (because he needs to get some stone for his job)
  4. mark an area for mining

Expected Results:
as long as the mason has no mason work to do I would expect him to mine like hell :slightly_smiling:

Actual Results:
mason wants to build and take down ladders at the building instead.

I think this has to do with the unique ability of all hearthlings to place ladders when needed and of course it’s of a very high priority mostly (to reach locations, to save stuck Hearthlings)
In my case there where many many many ladders to build for a complex test layout (which was built perfectly :smiley: )

perhaps there should be a split between auto-built ladders for placing items or building (building priority) from manual placed ladders (urgent priority)

I had this issue too. They told me that ladder construction for scaffolding is not seen als building and thus even when telling him not to build he will do that little part

And they’re always building scaffolding too, even when you don’t really need the scaffolding. :confounded:
