Summary: I haven’t caught this one in action, but I’ve found many piles of meat/fur scattered around the map. What I THINK is happening is that the trapper falls asleep at night, drops everything he’s carrying, and doesn’t pick all of it up in the morning. He’ll return with villagers and they will collect one item at a time, wasting their time with the long trek out to the trapping grounds.
Steps to reproduce
- Assign trapper to trapping zones far away
- Don’t make beds
(3. Observe trapper to see when they drop their goods)
Expected result: Trapper will sleep and collect everything in one go on waking, then drop it all off in the stockpile.
This BS… everywhere!
As I haven’t observed what causes this to happen, other possibilities are:
- Lack of trapper space
- Trapper stopping to eat
- Trapper being distracted by “Chop Wood” commands
