Let’s use an example. I might place 20 fences, then decide to move them over one block, so I pause and queue it up, moving them all. Then the hearthlings come and start moving them. The problem is, some hearthlings only see where the fences need to be moved and instead place a new fence so that the the one to be moved stays where it is. If another hearthling was in the process of moving the old one, it gets put into the supply, which sounds nice, except…
…This gets extremely frustrating with containers! I don’t know how many times I’ve said to move a container, say full of food, and the hearthlings place down a new one, with nothing in it, and new filters. Plus, if someone else was moving it, it then gets out into the supply and I then have no idea which one has the items!
Steps to reproduce:
- Place a bunch of stuff (be sure to have as many spares)
- Move every single one (preferably on the other side of the stuff, so hearthlings trying to place new ones instead of move old ones will get there first)
- Press play and watch the chaos.
Hearthlings will only move the items and not place new ones
Some hearthlings only realize there needs to be a thing there, and figures he can just place a new one.
Already placed block do not get moved to another’s place, only items in the supply.
