Can't delete scaffold and can't cancel order...
happens after V9b come out, my townies start to ignore the order to delete scaffold after building was completed, then i can no longer cancel the order for my townies to delete scaffold as my townies refuse to do any other work as they haven't finish "deleting" the scaffolds... now all my townies are stucked and refuse to move...

so far the only working way to get around it for me is to build underground towns... Anyone out there have the same problem?

Wait, I thought the delete command was just a dev tool action. I also thought that there wasn't an actual method to instruct your people to disassemble things like walls and such.

There is a delete command on the bottom bar for ordering your townies to destroy things but as far as i'm aware the only thing it works on is scaffolding. It deffinitely doesn't work on regular walls.

Huh, I didn't even know that. I guess that makes sense since you can't really make roofs without scaffolding...and scaffolding is meant to be temporary.

Yup, makes perfect sense. It also shows that there's really already a system in place for ordering your townies to take something apart and yet for some reason it wasn't applied to walls.

It's kinda ridiculous what problems exist in the game that they've basically already solved in another aspect of the game. Just like the market clicking issue that they finally dealt with in the recent patch. I still think being able to type in a number would be better but at least the shift+click system is something.

I just right click>Destroy Scaffold and it's gone. If I use delete on things I don't want it takes up the townies time.

Hmm it may be a bug. But, few things, when deleting scaffold you should start from the top layer, and go to the bottom layer. If you select all layers of scaffold to be deleted at the same time, than the thing that can happen is that townies will delete the scaffold in the lower levels and will not be able to reach the higer ones. Also they ignore to delete scaffold if they are working on a lot of things (i think it is low priority and I am not sure that building priority will affect it).

You said your townies are stuck, are all of them stuck even the ones that are on ground? Or are they maybe trapped on the scaffold so can't move?

Dont delete your saved game, if it is a bug you should create a thread here: http://www.townsgame.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=10 and give devs your saves (by hosting it on some of the free sites) so they can look at it.

Okie... first of all, i did start to delete scaffold from the very top level, so it won't be the problem, then the townies stuck part... they all stand around the scaffold that i ordered them to delete, but just stand there but no moving at all.
im gonna try a reinstall, if this happens again, it will be a bug and i'll send the save file to dev team.
