Title:  SteamUnstable - Soldiers dying to nothing
Just tried the latest unstable (12/17/2014 @ 7:30pm CST). I started a new map after the update. Everything was going relatively smoothly for the next hour (aside from some character screen weirdness that I see someone else has reported and some missing crafting supply icons) but then all the sudden I had a report of my Soldier dying (they get gravestones now, neat). No reports of fights or goblin invasions.
Steps to reproduce:
My theory on what happened is that after making my lvl 3 trapper a Shepard, some time passed and then the sheep that was following the Shepard was ready to be sheared. The act of shearing seems to have flagged the sheep as hostile, but they seem to be invincible, so the soldier took damage and then died.
I didn’t immediately realize what had happened, so I promoted another worker to soldier and then saw it running after the sheared sheep, taking damage, and then dying. So I stopped at the point. I did not try reloading the game and everything had been going so smoothly that I did not have any earlier saves (any chance of getting an auto-save setting?).
Soldiers would not die unexpectedly fighting sheared sheep.
Like I said, the above is all my theory. I could be way off base and it’s actually invisible goblins or something. Keep up the great work and thanks for all the updates and communication.
To try to be a little more helpful, here is the save file from right after the 2 deaths. If we’re lucky you can load it and then promote one of my workers and see it happen.
