After you’ve been playing a while, soldiers will start forgetting to eat and end up starving themselves. This occurs even if you have a ton of food available.
Steps to reproduce:
- Create some soldiers / archers.
- Play the game as normal, just allow them to roam.
- Notices start appearing regarding soldiers starving.
Soldiers will leave their patrols to go and eat when they’re hungry.
Soldiers starve because they stay on patrol and never leave it. They even starve if you try to reset their patrol by having them go to a location, or by triggering the town alarm on then off. They simply refuse to go and eat.
This occurred in a fresh new game after about 3 hours of play, with a villager limit of 16, the inventory limit turned on, and I also did my best to ensure pathing throughout my village was very simple and straight forward. One thing that I noticed, which might be a bug in itself, is that there were an excess of animals around the map as they kept spawning to raid my farms (which they couldn’t get to) and never despawned.
