0007991: Weaver won't climb tree to collect webs
There are some brown recluse spider man webs in a tree, and my weaver would rather cancel the job than climb up to get them.
1. Put webs in tree
2. Build loom
3. Collect webs

Please upload a save that demonstrates the problem to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and post the link here.

What's the specific cancellation message?

Also, how high up are the webs in the tree?

Dwarves can't pathfind more than one z-level of climbing, if I remember correctly.
2014-08-13 16:45   
It's on the 4th level of the tree, though only 3 levels above the ground (tree is on a slope.)

Cancellation message is:

[Dwarfname] cancels Collect Webs: Needs 10 undisturbed thread.

Save at http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9387 [^] . It's slightly modded, but nothing that should affect this. The tree is in the northwest corner of the embark.

Is there cancellation spam? Are there other webs that the weaver is ignoring? Dwarves aren't meant to climb up trees as part of their normal job pathing.

2014-08-14 12:09   
Oh, if webs in trees are meant to be inaccessible then there's no bug.
2014-08-14 12:41   
Yeah -- that might change when fruit harvesting goes in, but it's intentional for now.
