0000460: Finished Goods stockpile - Armor VS BODY-wear
I am unsure if this is even a bug or anything, but I've notice some weird things going on with my [Finished Goods -> Type -> Armor] stockpile and my [Finished Goods -> Type -> footwear,headwear,handwear,legwear] stockpile.

My haulers occasionally haul items between then for no discernible reason, or at least that what it looks like to me. Due to the many jobs I have them doing, I only occasionally see them go to the FG>T>A stockpile, and leave carrying an item to the FG>T>FHHL stockpile.

I only noticed this because they have no business going to a stockpile that already has something in it to put it in another stockpile.

What are they hauling between them? Without specific details, it's hard to tell whether this is a bug or not.

Sadly I didn't really check specifically. It's mostly things like leather gloves or trousers.

I've also been thinking about it, and the only thing I can think of that would make this not a bug is if the dwarves unequipped all of their possessions at once at the neartest stockpile when told to go off duty/in civvies. It's only a one way transfer to, so this would explain everything without a bug.

It seemed like a bug because other dwarves started an intermittent hauling operation from that stockpile to another occasionally for no apparently reason at all.

Chances are the items weren't actually IN the stockpile but were just left on top of it by soldiers claiming other uniform equipment. Those items were then hauled to the appropriate stockpile and it only appeared to be hauled from one stockpile to the other.

I'm going to close this for now unless you can provide a save showing the items were actually IN the other stockpile before being moved.
