Using the Tubular Preview on Windows 10
I started experimenting with a system whereby my farm has a single dedicated farmer. The Pneumatic Doors beneath the insulated border all have access control to only allow one dupe inside to do the harvesting, and he will also take the food to the fridge. Works a treat. But nobody seems to want to take food from the fridge. I had another full fridge next to my bio-printer with the same issue, so I emptied it and everybody came rushing. That's when I decided to build my mess hall. Everybody has all their consumables checked, there are no access restrictions or any other reasons why the fridges are inaccessible, I can only guess that because only one dupe can put food in the fridge, only he can take food out.
The problem went away, though, when I closed and reopened the game. Everybody came rushing immediately to the mess hall. It was an exciting time.
Another related issue: In the Jobs dialog, there's a column for Harvesting, with associated skill Farming. Everybody's Farming skill is at 0 and never changes regardless of how much harvesting they do. I don't want my dedicated farmer to always be this as slow as he is...
