Caravans leaving before arriving [SOLVED]

Caravans leaving before arriving [SOLVED]

Postby Ingen2 » Sat May 04, 2013 11:27 pm

I did not find anything while searching, so i hope this isn't duplicate.

As of v13a, Caravans have started leaving before trading.
this seems to be tied somehow to the "pause game when caravan arrives" option, as i noticed the "The caravan decides to leave the town" announcement popped up during a paused game.
This have happened several times, but i noticed once that the caravan (a boat this time) proceeded to go to my market, then turn around and leave without entering it.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: another caravan (dwarven) arrived while the game was running, not fullscreen, in the background. the "The caravan decides to leave the town" popped up before i tabbed back.
i had several caravans before this, i do not seem to get this issue if i unpause quickly after the POM POM! announcement.
Ps: audible POM POM would have been awesome :P

I just started having this happen to me. So far have had 3 caravans leave just as they entered the map. I have it set to pause when they come so i don't miss them.

Edit:
unsure if it has anything to do with game speed but i slowed my game down to 4 and caravans stopped running away after they showed up.

Tested a bit more. Seems like announcements do not change to "The caravan decides to leave the town" until i click the announcements button after waiting a little on pause. just tested this on three caravans.

Not tested with slower game speeds yet, will hopefully get to it tomorrow.

EDIT: repeatedly clicking the announcement button while paused worked on game speed 4 too. Dammit, i have lost three caravans loaded with gold now.
Oh well, bug reports come above self-defense :P

2nd that notion on a Pom Pom sound effect, a very good suggestion.

Solved on v14! Still testing but seems ok. It seems that if the "to buy" column (left column) is empty, after the townies haul an item to the caravan the caravan decides to leave. This also happned at random when the caravan just arrives. :O
