0001858: Dwarves cant seem to find path right
Im trying to play on dwarf fortress right now, but for some reason my people wont do anything. First off, I have 3 workshops right next to them with make rock blocks, but they keep saying they have no job. Then I tell my miners to dig out some areas, and they completely ignore it. They just stand around doing nothing. I even checked and they have their picks wielded too. I have complete access to top floor of my megastructure, and I have walls waiting to be built, but the masons wont do anything. Like every 10 minutes or so they will finally grab a block and build the wall, then say they are trapped on the top floor, even though they then go back to my main area fine... For some reason it seems like my game has a bug with up/down stairs. If i build about 5 steps away from the top of one, it says i have no access to building materials.
Try to dig stairways downwards, and after about 5 or 6 levels, they start ignoring it. Dig farther away from my main area. Masons wont build floors on top level of my building.

You use version 0.31.02? There have been some pathfinding bugs that are fixed in 0.31.03.

Yeah, get the new version and let us know whether the problem persists after that. http://bay12games.com/dwarves/ [^]

Reminder sent to: b1gb0y2013

Does this save still exhibit pathfinding problems in 31.10?
