0001095: Sporadic lack of access near constructions
Installed 31.02 and started fresh. I have been having an issue where dwarves are coagulating together as they attempt to construct walls. No particularly odd messages seem to come up in the flurry of announcements. It was only when I built a single entrance structure that seemed to be hoarding dwarves like a honeypot that I could see what the issue was by trying to install a bed, sporadic areas are coming up as "No Access". After several minutes at 0000076:0000080 fps the dwarves suddenly disgorge and access is open to most of the structure, however "No Access" still shows up in areas of the building. This seems to also occur around sections of a wall that I am building in the forest. Seems pathfinder related.
I'll try to reproduce in another world.
No tags attached.

Pathfinding bug causing all sort of weird stuff was fixed in 0.31.03. Get the new version.

You selected version 31.03, but your description says 31.02. This is important because 31.03 (download here http://www.bay12games.com/forum/index.php?topic=54115.0 [^]) contained a major pathfinding fix for issues like the one you're describing. Which version are you using?

Checked again. Cancelling issue as the error was on my part (too many damn df versions active). My apologies.

No problem.
