No offense alex, but for me this is the point of the game.

In versions below 9.B, I would totally agre about the ship, but otherwise I like the fact you need to specify things.

the answer to your problem is simply to not try doing too many things at once. I myself stick to only two projects on the go at one time (including the ship).

If you want your builders to do more building, either reassign more peasants to carry the essential work of transport, or make more builders to help.

Btw, you can flick through buildings with shift F and shift D and thus quickly see how your mill is doing.

As I said, castaways is all about constantly rebalancing your resources and personelle according to what your doing and what circumstances your in.

Btw, starvation usually happens if 1, you've not got enough peasants on transport duties or 2, your cook is ill.

Check what you are doing over all and the amount of food in your storehouse. If the amount of food goes up or stays steady your doing okay, but if peasants start taking from your store it means your production can't keep up and you'll need a rethink of stratogy.

Beware the Grue!

Subject: [Audyssey] prioritising tasks in castaway


Hi.
I am in the middle of another game of castaways, I am not doing two badly, I have built the ship, but my peasants aren't stocking it, they are still carrying stuff to the tavern, and the baker hasn't done anything though I think it might be because they didn't finish the mill. I can't be bothered to go hunting all over the map to try and find it. Having said that, I am getting warning mesages about people being on the verge of starving, and then they seem to feed themselves up a bit and stagger on.
anyway, this brings me on to my suggestion.
Its great when peasants or builders decide to help out with other jobs, but there are times when I would like to tell say a bunch of builders who are transporting stuff to stop that, just leave the stuff where it is and go and finish the existing building projects off. as there have been a lot of times where building work is half done, and yet the builders have got side tracked on to shifting stuff around. I think it would also be good if you have several building projects on the go if you could say to your builders that you want building x finished before building y etc.
