|Summary||0003874: Dwarves fight over animals|
|Description|| I've noticed that butchering, milking, and chaining / caging duries can cause dwarves to fight over animals for hours.|
Apparently prioritization of animal tasks needs some love.
I've sat and watched my fortress starve while my butcher and my milker fight over a cow. Prioritize milking, then butchering?
More frequently I see milking and chaining fights. Prioritize chaining over milking?
Often I see butchering and chaining fights. Prioritize chaining over butchering?
Basically I think that animals should have some sort of action queue, and if chaining is on that queue, the chaining should happen first, then milking then butchering?
If such a thing has existed in the past, it no longer seems to work.
|Steps To Reproduce||Every version of DF for the last year or so since I first noticed it has had this issue. All you need is a cow, a workshop, and a chain. put the meeting place between them, widely separated, and assign a milking job and a chaining job while dwarves with both milking and animal hauling jobs are free, and you will watch a tug-of-war.|
