I haven’t done exhaustive testing, but it appears that any non-rectangular footprint won’t be built. At most, they’ll dig the space for the ground floor, but won’t start building. Rectangles get built; anything with a reflex corner / interior angle > 180 degrees won’t even get a floor, much less wall posts or the rest.
I’m new to the game, and i wasn’t able to build a rectangular house… The hearthlings came and dug out the floor, but didn’t put anything down. And then they just sort of gave up…
I don’t have a screen shot of this… My house also had an empty spot without a roof, and a second floor…
Hey there, I’m a long follower but only playing since Steam EA release.
I have a similar problem, running R375 (x64) on Win8.1.
The predefined templates work, custom buildings and custom templates only sometimes.
It seems, when a custom building gets somewhat complicated, it doesn’t get build.
The problem doesn’t depend on simple shape foundations, unlike HamoPeche described above, i have tried two buildings with similar shape (both rectangular with little extension for the doorstep), one gets build (simple two stories, no stairs, roof), the other doesn’t (3 stories, custom roof, custom stairs).
Will provide screenshots if needed, but would run a test-world for that.
Additional Info: Happened since first day in game, saving and restart doesn’t help.
But, just to say: Great Game even now with the bugs!
EDIT: since I noticed there are also some problems about buildings with 3 or more stories around, I should mention that as long there are custom-built stairs (or anything else with slab tool, I guess) involved, the problem persists for 2 stories as well.
I’m on build 375. with windows 8.1, 16GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 765m. I’ll hit the build button and confirm but nothing happens. I’ve saved the building and started a new save and they still wont build it. (yes, I have more than enough materials, besides, they wont even dig the foundation) Here’s another shot:
I had built the shared housing template and the 2 bed template which were fine. When I tried to build a second 2 bed house they stopped half way… still needs the roof and scaffolding is still up. But they won’t finish it and just wander idle.
@asger1231 I had a similar problem as you. A building that the hearthlings refused to work on. At first i thought it was due to lack of resources but they wouldnt even dig out the ground for a foundation (similar to what you are describing) and the thing causing it to glitch in my case was a slab/second floor placed ontop of the walls in preparation to expand later on in my game.
My workaround for this was basically to removed the second floor flooring (as i see you have aswell, the flat roof in your blueprint) then they should start working on it. Try it out and let me know if it works!
@zigworf if they dug out the place for the foundation but aren’t constructing the floor then it sounds like a material error. Like if you try to make a stone floor but have no stone resource? Or similar a wood floor but no wooden logs cut down yet.
