I seem to get a lot of vills that just stand around idle. But in the UI they count as they gather res. I think it happens when a reasource runs out and there is none of the same close enought for them to move to automaticly.
Does anyone else have this? Is it a known bug? Can you somehow avoid it?

If it's on berries, it's an old bug. If they're kinda stuck between 2 vils and not gathering, it's also an old bug. Else it's DE

Nah this is something else. Like a goldmine has run out and I just catch 6 vills chillin and it says i have 16 vills on coin and 0 idle. When really i have 10 on coin and 6 little fkers.

I aso noticed if u ctrl+dubble click on them, they get selected togheter with The coinvills and not with other idle vills. Wich also is annoying.

I'm having an issue with tribal marketplaces where it says they're all idle, but the coin hasn't run out, and doesn't matter how many times you retask them or even delete and rebuild the marketplace, they just become idle again after a couple of seconds - happened with both Lakota and Haudenosaunee, but not every time, and never straight away so no clue what the pattern is.

Have you tried checking the recs to see if you can see anything causing it?

No sadly don't have recs - my theory is that the coin mine is about to expire, but for some reason it stops short so doesn't disappear along with the marketplace and instead they just become idle

It's a bit annoying my hero still isn't building TPs. That shouldn't cost me actions, but it gets my settler wagon killed.

The response to players complaining about bugs is that it's been like this for awhile so you need to know your units won't do what you tell them sometimes, which is just really fun in an are tee ess.
to achieve the perfectionist's ideal: a state absolved of any and all imperfection, necessarily assigned by and because of observation. it's too late to avoid entanglement. then, following acceptance, distress at having the incorrect imperfections.

yeah I've seen this too. coin mine stops at 1 coin, but it's never destroyed, and thus the marketplace is never destroyed, but the vills will eventually idle. It's probably a rounding error mixed with some machine epsilon case that prevents the coin mine from ever reaching 0. it is incredibly annoying when this happens.
