Archers keep walking off their platforms

Bug Description:

Sometimes when I return to my base, the archer thralls I have set up on platforms walk a few steps towards me and fall off. Having to keep putting them back is getting old quickly. This has only been happening since the update. They were there for weeks before without issue.

Their behaviours are set to stand and defend and attack all enemies.

I don’t know if crenelated walls would prevent this but I don’t want to use them, because thralls seem to prefer shooting the walls instead of their targets, and they cost as much as a foundation piece to craft for some reason.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Have archer thralls on stacked foundation pieces
  2. Return to base from elsewhere
  3. Sometimes nothing happens, sometimes they fall off

This bug is almost a year old.
Tralls are walking.
Archers cannot be placed upstairs.
The only way to use archers that I have found is to place them down on the wooden stage of the arena, which needs to be fenced. The fence will prevent the attackers from breaking through to the archers, but in this case it will not prevent the archers. Archers Programming - Hold Position.

Oh no, these archers again.

Thanks for the heads-up, we’ll send a note to our team again about eloping archers so we can put them in place.
