Path finding huge bug


Big problem in the pathfinding, hearthlings try to reach places using impraticable path and stay stuck.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build a quite big city (~18 hearthlings)
  2. Add some tricky path (cliff and pits)
  3. Just wait. Happens also with silkweed plants.

Expected Results:

No stuck hearthlings.

Actual Results:

Hearthlings get stuck, sometimes many hearthling get stuck at the same location.


It’s new in Alpha 15.


Version Number and Mods in use:

Alpha 15 develop-2860, no mods.

I think a savegame and screenshots with a overview about the problem would help.

For me many issues are gone after reloading my savegame.

As @talamatur said, a save game where the Hearthlings are stuck would be appreciated.

To upload a save, locate the folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth\saved_games (assuming a default Steam install), zip the individual save’s folder (not the entire saved_games folder), and upload it. If the *.zip is less than 10 MB, feel free to upload it directly to the Discourse. If larger, please upload it to a cloud storage site like Dropbox, Google Drive, File Dropper, etc. and post the sharing link here.

Not sure a save should be very helpfull, except if the pathway is saved as well and not computed again when loading a game. And my guess is of course for the later one.

I do currently not encounter anymore this bug, I guess it has been corrected in the dev-2865/2867
