[0.31.01]'Take from stockpile' not working properly
« on: April 02, 2010, 04:53:30 am »

I haven't rigorously tested this but when you tell a stockpile to take from another stockpile,  the hauler dwarves will run over to the items that need transfering, pick them up, and drop them back in the first stockpile without moving.  Then, they take a few steps and reacquire the hauling job (or another one if there are many items).

WORKAROUND:
if you disable the items in the first stockpile, the hauling job will work properly.  This works, but it kinda defeats the purpose of the 'take from'.

Confirmed.  A pain, too, since I'm used to setting up complex dwarfy-industrial logistics using Take from Stockpile.

Yup, me too... seems our entrance dance has been replaced with a 'stockpile dance'.
