As the title suggests, while I was pleasantly surprised with the new Farm update to now not only have stuck seed bags anymore, but also have my Dragon follow me around my farm, I'm now experiencing trouble collecting milk from my Yaks. Whevever I go to click on collecting from them, I just start infinately running into them instead of stopping to milk them, resulting in me getting stuck and having to restart my game..Sometimes when I go back in, it will say I managed to collect it, while other times it doesn't register and sais I need to still collect from them but I can't tell if it gave me the UDT points or not; still trying to figure that out but please, this needs to be fixed regardless. Has anyone else encountered this issue lately..?

And for some info because it's a bug report:
Computer: HP ENVY Phoenix 800
Operating system: Windows 10
Using Steam Version.

Yep, happens in the online version too.

I've found that I can break out of the running glitch by entering the store or, if that doesn't work, the options panel and then 'x'ing out of one or both of them.  If I don't have Yak Feed in my inventory and click 'yes' on the 'you need Yak Feed' pop up, the store opens and then the pop up reappears.  Clicking 'yes' on the second pop up causes the Yak Feed to not have a purchase button.

Thanks for the tips

I appreciate your input; Next time I try collecting from them, I'll definetly need to try some of those in game exit strategies...Though I personally have no idea when I'll be low on Yak feed myself again with how crazy I went during that Black Friday sale they had a while back so I wouldn't know anything about this glitch with the missing purchase button, hope they can fix that for you too.... ._.

You're welcome!

The feed issue, at least, isn't too bad a problem.  Just clicking 'no' on the second pop up or buying the feed ahead of time makes it a non-issue but just because a bug can be easily avoided doesn't stop the bug from existing so I figured I should bring it up for both the devs and other players who encounter that particular issue.

Wow..

Alright, so I tested out your method of going into the buy menu while I'm stuck in that perpetual running motion then leaving and it reset the character and proceeded to milk my yaks properly afterwards so, thank you again Very much!..^^ While this isn't an official fix for this glitch, it's certainly a good way to get around the problem for now.. c:

Update on this glitch

So I ended up putting two more yaks on my farm.  Trying to milk the yaks who were on my farm prior to this glitch still results in a cycle of running that I can break out of by opening up the store.  However, when milking the two new yaks I put down I get teleported inside a nearby wall.  I'm not sure if this aspect of the glitch very specifically puts you inside a wall or if it just teleports you to a certain location relative to the yak and that that spot just happens to be inside of a wall for me.

i noticed it with mine

i, too, have had the problem but when i relocated the yaks to a place along the river or to the front of the farm where there is room to move around them to collect the milk, problem solved!! its trying to run around the yaks to collect the milk that causes you to go into a running mode when you get stuck between a wall or another animal!

My yaks haven't moved location since before this glitch started.  Neither had anything near them.  Additionally, it occurs even when standing on(/in) the milking stool, which previously required minimal movement in order to switch from the running animation to the milking animation.

ETA: Plus it doesn't make sense that enough people have been having this problem to warrent four recent threads about it and nothing in the past month prior to them if this wasn't a new issue but rather one that's been around a while.

So something did change, then.  Unfortunatly I've got that problem where changes made to the farm don't get saved, so moving my yaks would mean moving them each and every time.  Or, so I've heard, move the yak pens and putting down a new object in their place to 'force-save' the changes but then I'm stuck with the new objects on my farm.

Thanks for the info, though!  Whenever the issues with changes not saving is fixed I'll see about getting my yak pens moved to a location that fixes the path issue.  :)

so far

so far i havent had to move my yaks from the place i put them. they have stayed put. as for the other things i do have two house neither of which will stay where i put them. tho i havent tried to put something else in its place :/  the other objects will stay put if i put them in inventory first then leave and come back and put them where i want them. so far all that is good.  i will try the "put something else in its place" trick for the houses and see what happens.

not stuck with new objects!

i tried the "replace it with something else so it cant go back" and it work. i am not stuck with new objects either since all i had to do was put them back into inventory and the original items stayed where i put it! FINALLY!! don't need two houses but at least i can finally put them where i want them and have them stay put!

I used to have this glitch too ///v\\\\\\\\ but then after a while, it turns into only 1 or 2 seconds of running and then my viking stops.
