I seem to be losing a lot of play hours to scaffolding construction or deconstruction.
It looks to me like there’s no optimising going on in the AI for where a Hearthling wants to place or remove from next. I followed one hearthling go from one end of a build to another making a single hit here and there, it took absolutely ages.
I was building something out of stone and thought that each Hearthling would grab some stone for the building and some wood for the scaffolding, but it looked like they had to return to the container each time they switched between laying stone and scaffolding.
Although it’s not necessarily breaking the game, it is definitely not fun. Which in my opinion is just as bad.
