    • Labourers Returning Books Without Any Fame Gain Or Returns!

      Hello. Today 4 of my 15 Tier 3 labourers returned without any experience gains, or returns despite being in a more than adequate environment. (one is not pictured, i retrieved the book accidentally before i could screenshot it)

      These labourers were all in a Tier 7 guild hall, with 5 of each generalist trophy (tiers 2-7), 15 beds of tier 7, and 3 tables of tier 7.
      All 15 labourers had the same estimated returns of 115% at the time of book deposit.
      All labourer happiness is at 330/400.
      The other 11 labourers returned the appropriate returns without issue.

      The desired results SHOULD have been an experience gain of 121/360 to 197/360.

      • Description of the issue: 4/15 labourers returned empty books without experience gains/returns
      • Steps to reproduce: Tier 7 guild hall, Tier 3 labourers (just upgraded to tier 3 from tier 2), give tier 3 generalist journals and wait 22 hours for returns.
      • Result: 4 out of 15 did NOT give appropriate returns.
      • Expected result: 15 out of 15 labourers with between 121 experience gain and 197 experience gain, with 1 to 2 tier 3 generalist trophy returns

    • I believe this is not a bug, but intended behavior. There is a chance for the laborers to not return anything when you are using generalist trophy journals. This usually happens on their first job after reaching T3, but can happen later as well, as long as you are using generalist trophy books. Their next job usually gives you returns already.

      115% expected returns though. There is absolutely no way this is intended behavior haha
      Intended behavior would be like 60% returns, in which there is a 40% chance to return nothing. But we are literally talking about above 100% chance for returns here!
      It's possible it's a bug isolated to the first job of tier 3 labourers, in which it should be a pretty easy bug to fix yeah? But i've also heard this is a bug with other tiers and types of labourers not returning resource type returns.
      An official statement would be nice for sure either way!
    • Yeah there are two major bugs with laborers, that everyone will quickly discover on their own if you get involved enough. The first, and more obnoxious, is that occasionally, due to latency or ????, you will click a laborer and get a completely blank Items returned. You won't get your journal back, you won't get resources or trophies. No prizes, only your stuff being yoinked by the game for no reason.

      This is the second bug. Your laborers happiness is not displayed correctly upon leveling up. There is a settling in timer on level ups, similar to when you place new furniture, but it is rarely if ever displayed to players. Instead it makes it appear that not only has your laborer leveled up, but that their happiness has already reach maximum levels for their new level.

      Also, currently the laborers don't actually disappear sometimes, although their cabinet doors do always shut to indicate they are gone.

      This has gotta be it. Thanks Piddle

      This seems to have been fixed. Now the actual happiness is displayed after they level up. @Piddle was right all along.

      Edit.: Scratch that, looks like its only fixed in houses T6 and above. Lower tier houses still seem to display incorrect values. Idk if its the house or the furniture, but it is weird af.
