Workforce on farms
Is it worthwhile micromanaging your workforce on farms? When winter begins I set job attractiveness to the lowest level on all farms and raise it again when spring arrives. Not sure if I'm accomplishing anything with all those clicks.

Yes, that does indeed free up your workers to work on other stuff during Winter.

Thanks for the answer. Now the inevitable request :steamhappy: Can we get an toggle option for each farm to would automatically switch between the lowest attractiveness and the player-set attractiveness during the appropriate seasons?

Agreed +1

Hmmm. I'd thought I'd fixed it so holding the Ctrl key (to select all of the same type) and then changing the worker priority will change it for all highlighted buildings? Not in a position where I can try it right now, but can you try it and let me know if it works ...?

I use Greenhouses, rarely Farms. I want to select groups (explained in another thread), rarely have the need to "select all".
The game is a bit micro managing, but there could be added some tools to reduce that a bit.

That works. I might have missed it but I don't recall this feature being covered in the tutorials.

I didn't know we could do that! Finally! That'll solve a lot of problems I've had at assigning multiple buildings to do the same thing; like telling all the nanite processors not to use copper so I can trade it, or telling all the farms to use potash in winter, or upping worker priority on all of a set of buildings, etc.
