View Full Version : Laborers not moving
12-05-2004, 02:03 AM
My laborers are stuck in there houses in the first compaign. This game was created post patch. My overseer is out waiting at the jobsite but the men are just sitting in their houses. I'd really appreciate help!

...I realised the attacted game might not be all that convincing cuz the laborers don't have their support structures yet, but i forgot to mention this had already happened to me in another game I'd created.

It's one of the big quirks with the game. You are not digging any granite obelisks because there is no demand for any.. this is different from trade where you can trade for steles and obelisks and accumilate them before starting your project.
Change your overseer to granite steles (since right now you can't build granite obelisks) and notice the workers still haven't started.
Now build a large or small granite Steles monument. Once the brick work is done and it's ready for the stele, you'll find the labours will fire up and start making steles. I guess it's done since the overseer doesn't know whether to make large or small steles until you start building the monument itself.
BTW, your overseers and labourers will travel huge distances. It might be easier to build that work camp closer to your main city (where the grass goes to sand) even if it's farther away from the granite.
