Heey there guys, i'm new here, I've been playing Zeus: Master of Olympus, I don't really know if this forum is still active but i'm gonna give it a try,

So i have this issue, i have about 2 storehouses full with wheat.
and i have 2 Granary's to the right en left of them, but for some reason they aren't getting the wheat from the storage-houses, the granary's keep running empty and my houses devolve...

Ive tried everything with the Accept/Get/Empty/Don't Accept.
but nothing works

I've tried straight roads to each other without anything attached to it, I tried with and without roadblocks, nothing seems to work. I tried to make a screen-capture to really show what is going on but it doesn't really work.

(I have enough workers, everything is perfect but it's only this issue)

Maybe one of you guys are able to help me?

Go to distribution tab and see if if the wheat is being 'stockpiled'; it will be orange instead of default black if it is stockpiled. A stockpiled good cannot be taken by agora vendors nor traded away in trade posts/docks.

If that's not the case, set both Granaries to 'get' wheat and the Storehouses to 'empty', this should force the wheat to leave the storehouses and be transferred to granaries.

I have a similar problem to the OP with wheat, but it's compounded by my need in the episode for horses. I have a storage yard next to the horse ranches that I've set to "accept" wheat, and every harvest, ALL the wheat delivery men go to the storage yard first, completely neglecting three empty granaries and two huge housing blocks that desperately need food. Is there any way to coax my delivery people to go to the granary first? (I've set the granaries to "get" for wheat and it still does nothing). TIA!

I think the storehouse will always get filled first, but a getting granary should get from the storehouse and I don't know why this doesn't work for you, are the granaries and warehouse connected by road?

However it seems to me you simply don't have enough wheat farms. Build more. If you have a surplus of wheat from farms, better than a shortage. Then you don't need your granaries to get.

Also you could set the warehouse to accept a smaller amount of wheat temporarily (8 say) and when the granary is tending to stay full then increase it again.

Also, maybe you have too many horse ranches. Fewer of them means more food for people.

Horse Ranches consume 10units per horse(6max) each month, plus 50units when they reproduce. If you are consuming horses, the worst case situation might be 920units/year per ranch. On average 1 wheat farm/ranch is normal for low horse consumption.

Your population consumes at a regular rate of .25unit/person/month(3/year). Always overproduce food.

Wheat is the only people food available(trade)? Perhaps import a little people food until your stable.

Are you producing enough wheat to handle the worst case situations?

Do you have enough wheat deliverymen? Perhaps another storhouse so most of the yearly Ranch wheat consumption is stored. Don't want Ranch stored wheat to get near zero as it may be contra-productive.

Enough Granary storage for a whole year? Don't want the Farm deliverymen to go back and forth too often.

One of my issues in this particular city (Autoch) is that the map is insanely spread out, so if my wheat deliverymen are turned away at the storehouse, it takes them a while to trek all the way to the granary.

FWIW, my very inelegant solution to the problem was to get rid of my wheat storehouse near the horse ranches and import wheat to a pier placed very close to the horse ranches. That seems to have alleviated the delivery problem, and my granaries are once again full. Thanks to all for your input.

Autoch sounds interesting.
I haven't played in a while. Can you tell me where to find it please? The name doesn't ring any bells.

My assumption was...

Thanks, both.

It happens to be the next one on the list anyway.
