Steps to reproduce "on strike" hearthling bug

I have been getting this bug for a long time now, and it appears that others are getting it as well. The bug symptoms are that when you load a saved game, the hearthlings drop what they are doing and will no longer do anything at all.

These are the steps that guarantee that my save game will become bugged.

  1. Play game and save at some point, even if you only play for one game day.

  2. quit game

  3. close out steam.

  4. Reboot computer.

  5. Your save game is now bugged when you restart.

So it would seem that restarting the computer is the main contributor. Either the game is not handling a dynamic ip, or something is not getting saved from memory to the save game file. Or maybe it has something to do with steam…
