0005307: Workshops are regarding all thread as "used", even when it's in a stockpile right next to the workshop
*Weavers and dyers are refusing to use thread in the stockpile next them, displaying the message, "Urist McDwarf, Herp-derper cancels Weave/Dye Thread: Needs 1 unused collected dyeable thread".
*Thread is both imported plant thread and homegrown animal yarn.
*Thread in hospital is usable by doctors, but unavailable to even possessed dwarves - since when did they care about silly trifles like that?
No mods, pure vanilla game. Between this issue and the hospital claiming every scrap of cloth already in the fortress (more than four times the amount I designated for it), it's impossible to make cloth available for that soon-to-be-bonkers Weaver screaming away in the Clothier's workshop. Bah, my fortress needed some more Fun, anyway.
No tags attached.
