[40d] [RESOLVED - NOT A BUG] Dwarves won't haul furniture?
« on: December 18, 2009, 10:14:56 am »

My dwarves stopped hauling furniture for some reason. My workshops are getting very cluttered, and I've assigned Furniture Hauling to ALL dwarves, but none of them will move them to the stockpiles. If I tell them to place the furniture somewhere using the Build command, they'll take it from the workshops, but they won't touch them otherwise.

I keep checking my Units list, and I've constantly got about a quarter of my fort with "No Job". Any idea what could be wrong?

Check Standing (o)rders, make sure they're not set to ignore furniture.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

If you want to save Toady the time of looking through this thread, you can change the thread title (by editing the original post) to something like "Not a bug".

You know.. this EXACT same thing happened to me...

Down to the forum post and someone mentioning that it was probably turned off in that menu...

I think there needs to be a little more feedback, or that menu needs to be changed so they keys are not accidentally hit when entering it *like using capital letters or something*
