Summary0001301: Squad go off-duty if you give them a move order they can't fulfill (can't find path)
DescriptionI am in a cave full with water, it is not easy to know which "islands" are reachable...

I give a "Move" order to my squad. If the pathfinder doesn't find a way, all the squad members become civilians with the job "Store Owned Item".

It's impossible to stop them from returning to the Barrack.
Steps To Reproduce- Create a squad
- Order the squad to move somewhere impossible
- See them become Civilians

In my experience, this is not the case. I had walled off stairs in the cavern system that i was unwalling to get at some spider silk, so i ordered my squad (who were off duty) to move to just outside the stairs in the cave while I removed the stairs.

The squad activated, couldn't find a path (because there wasn't one), then went and hung out in the meeting hall until the wall finished deconstructing. At that point, they headed down the stairs to the caves.

Maybe it has something to do with water / swimming ?

I have the same question as in 0001302: Is your squad's alert state Inactive or Active/Training?

I just tried with three different alerts : Inactive, a burrow restriction, and Active/Training.

It makes no difference.

They don't really care about which alert mode they are in. Which doesn't surprise me since I took direct control of their orders.

(Why is that Dwarf wearing a Barrel of wine on the combat zone??? Drop that you Gnnnnn!)

I can't edit my own issue ?

That one has been fixed in 34.11 :)
Thank you Toady !
