Summary: I’m thinking this one should be easy to fix. I had been scratching my head as to why a lot of my buildings are abandoned halfway through. They’d build two or three out of the four+ walls and then stand around doing nothing. The status bar thingy would be constantly yellow, despite me not having resources laying around or anything else that would be using the pathfinder much. I noticed the scaffolding wouldn’t rise above 1 level on the affected walls, and then noticed my benches had already been placed, getting in the villagers’ way.
Steps to reproduce:
- Design Custom building
- Place walls
- Enter doodad placer
- Place floor doodad next to wall - In my case, I’d place a bench underneath some of my windows
- Build building
Wall is built, doodad is then placed after the window goes up.
Notice the bench placed underneath the window in the schematic:
Bench is placed before the wall is completed:
- Sorry for the crappy pics / change in angles. I hadn’t yet figured out what was causing the issue
- Building construction resumes as planned once the doodad is (re)moved
So this can really get out of hand!
FIVE workers trapped inside the building, placing doodads when they should be fixing the roof!!!
Thankfully, I had another 5 workers to finish the building and release them
