Update!
Thank you for the update! It's been a long time coming, but hopefully this is a sign that they'll be more regular! Also, some basic quality of life updates would be great. Separating chopping from tilling and allowing for automatic flower picking (similar to automatic chopping) would be great.

I know that improved pathfinding/less lag for older towns was supposed to have been worked on with this update. Has the improved pathfinding made it less necessary for you to literally wall in and herd townies in lower levels of dungeons to prevent them from starving? Are people with larger towns having fewer lag issues?

I have fewer lag issues, that said I am only at 70 townies as of yet and only have two full floors of the dungeon opened. I am still leery and have been building roads in the dungeon and making clear paths however, having a moderately sized town I have noticed huge differences in AI pathing for the better.

Awesome. Those were my biggest turn offs for the game, and the reasons I stopped playing until they were able to update again. Anybody with a 100+ town to tell me (hopefully) good news yet?

I think the pathfinding did not improve, and is still the same. The only thing improved was the performance, and probably few small bug fixes that can happen with townies AI.

and allowing for automatic flower picking (similar to automatic chopping) would be great.

Sadly, this is intentional. The mechanic to do such a thing is already there - you can certainly mod it to do so. Flowers don't have any sort of special mechanics that would prevent it.

It was a design decision, apparently.

Heh, I have three floors (although not fully explored), and I have only 15 townies. We have very different play styles.

I'm a builder, I really enjoy making sprawling complicated cities Cobra. I do like the dungeon but I save it for dessert. :)

My townies build insanely fast. They are all working fine and using the fastest way. I fully explored the dungeons and i'm at 250+ townies.
