There are several issues that I suppose are interconnected. So I’ll put them all into one thread.
Please write below if you have experienced that, too, and your own thoughts on it!
— Placing furniture with “place item” tool:
“Place item” tool and “Decoration” tool inside the builder are two separate tools. I expect the second to add the placed furniture to the building template while the first to just free-place it.
Both tools add furniture to the building’s construction queue, including in in the template. If you save the building afterwards the furniture placed in any way will be included in the template save. Should those two tools work in a different way as I described? And if yes, how should one include a previously free-placed piece of furniture in the template?
— Placing furniture with “place item” tool - after the building has been completed:
As in the previous case, when a building is completed (seeing “Congratulations!” when you select it), the “Decorations” tool from the builder should not be available (as you should not be able to edit a finished structure). So any furniture placed after finishing construction should be done via “place item” and not count towards building completion nor to its template.
Adding a piece of furniture to the already completed building “unlocks” its construction status, changing it from being “complete” to being “under construction” until the furniture is placed. Which is not exactly logical.
— Placing furniture with “move item” tool:
“Move item” tool references an item that is already placed in the world. What I expect for the hearthling is to pick that exact item from the first place and put it in the new (inside a building under construction).
The tool works inconsistently. Sometimes the item in question is moved as ordered. But sometimes hearthlings bring a new one from the stockpile, completely ignoring the initial item. Which is not good, expecially when moving containers already having contents and tweaked filters.
