Fire drill

Why, after a fire drill, are colonists so unwilling to take existing jobs? They will fill nearby new construction immediately, and occasionally will fill reactivated buildings if they've been deactivated for a while (I wasn't paying attention to the time, but upwards of 10 minutes), but they seem completely disinterested in existing jobs, to the point where i lost all my food and water because nobody wanted to work.

I initially ran the drill because I was seeing persistent unemployment numbers and buildings with vacancies. I'm hoping when I play tomorrow that tinkering with salaries and minimum salaries will help.

The same thing happened to me with colonists having a high unemployment rate after a fire drill, even though I had roughly 30k colonists and 40k jobs. Looking a little deeper, I discovered the average savings was a little over 13 million per colonists. I adjusted my labor costs, taxed them til they had under 100 avg savings, then a stimulous package. Shortly after, my unemployment dropped like a rock. Seems they go to work faster if they have no money.

I have had the same experience with Fire Drill's as SlappySquirrel. Anytime I use a Fire Drill the colonists will wander aimlessly. They will occupy buildings and take random jobs. Even jobs with outrageous commutes. Also all the food and water will deplete thus having to start a new colony. Fire Drill feels broken at the moment.

I always save exit and wait few second then restart colony after fire drill, it seems all back normally after restart game.

Just put a buffer on resource before you do it, they will eventually fill those job up, just need time for them to relocate

You can sue the fire frill if you have a level 2 government building.
