I’m very new to the game—I’ve seen some videos on youtube but just bought it myself today—so it’s distinctly possible this is a me problem and not a game problem, but I did some Googling and couldn’t come up with anything, so here I am.
I tried designing a custom house, and had it all set to go, and hit Build, and nothing happened. Nobody moved to dig out a spot for foundation or anything. I tried this with pre-designed buildings too, and had the same problem. I tried putting the buildings in different areas. I’m not trying to build anything elaborate with more than one floor. I’ve double-checked that I have all the needed materials, and I have stockpiles and chests full of building material. I’ve checked that my workers don’t have anything to do other than build. I’ve tried setting them so that building is their only job. Nothing is working so far. I’m out of ideas.
If it matters, I’m on build 707. Can anyone offer any ideas?
