My villagers won't restock their trades on our server (1.14.2) , no matter what I do. I tried completely isolating them from other villagers, breaking their work stations for an entire in-game day, leaving space between them to gossip, I tried everything. I uploaded a screenshot, does anyone know what the problem is? Do they maybe need beds or anything else?
I think that may be the case now but I'm pretty sure that wasn't always the case, and since you aren't on the latest update I wouldn't count on it.
ok now i made it absolutely impossible to pathfind to another lectern for one of the villagers (the one i cured). i set up a small hut for him, 52 blocks away from the others, with light, a lectern and a bed. he wont restock. im starting to think this is some kind of bug, but all my villagers are like this
I'm not sure but I seem to remember villagers at some point being able to detect and claim workstations at a distance of something like 82 blocks?
I think I would try letting them all out into a big room with all the workstations accessible and see if that works better.
(Though I understand that would make it hard to resort them into some kind of order.)
I see in the Wiki that in 1.14.3 "The "last slept" and "last worked" properties for villagers are now saved properly." which could mean that they weren't working properly in 1.14.2, I have no idea if "last worked" affects restocking or just iron golem generation.
I would suggest reading back in the forum before June 24 (when 1.14.3 was released) and see if any posts there mention similar problems and if there are any solutions.
Or search YouTube for trading hall designs or tutorials specifically for 1.14.2
Are other players on the server having similar problems?
If there are players with working trading halls you could ask if you can copy their setups.
