Hey guys, wanted to follow up on this one as I’ve been experiencing a similar issue with this in single player & multiplayer.
Seems to be since the newest update of the game (Beta r874).
Citizens tab is very buggy - to follow up from Merchaun’s point, the activity doesn’t update for the hearthlings nor does their promotions.
They still function as normal but when looking in the citizens tab there is no update at all. For example: a person could be mining or chopping down a tree and it would say they are either idle or talking to someone in the citizens tab when they are not. Another example being that when they are promoted, they stay as a worker according to the citizens tab when they are not.
Steps to reproduce
- Run a normal world
- Promote a worker to something and open citizens tab to see if changes from worker to relevant class OR assign worker to chop down tree, check citizens tab to see if activity updates
Activity description to update and promotion icon to change when promoted in citizens tab.
Citizens tab doesn’t update the activity description correctly nor does the promotion icon update.
I’m experiencing an issue with the escape key as well that doesn’t want to bring up the main menu after opening the citizens tab unless I press the key about 6 times, not sure if this helps identify the issue? I’m thinking it could possibly be connected.
I’ve tried testing out the citizens tab with Ascendancy, Northern Alliance & Rayya’s Children + all 3 maps - all have the same issue.
Additional things I’ve tried include:
- Restarting the game after saving, this has displayed the promotion icons correctly but the activity descriptions still do not display correctly.
- Reinstalling the game COMPLETELY from steam, sadly this doesn’t fix the issue.
To answer Relyss question - no this didn’t work for me.
Unable to upload anything in here yet as I’m a new user
Version Number and Mods in use
Beta r874 - tried with mods and without, same issue either way.
Don’t think this is really relevant at this current point in time, if you think otherwise feel free to let me know!
I feel that this issue is hugely game breaking and is preventing me from enjoying the full extent of the game. My friend who I play multiplayer with has also been experiencing the citizens tab issue.
I guess I’m just going to have to resort to micro managing my hearthlings like crazy!
Let me know if you guys need any additional information from me regarding this and I’ll do my best to help.
Other than the bugs I just want to say, absolutely love the game and keep up the good work making this game awesome. You guys rock <3
