 if a season is stuck, you have to use the god power to "warp" to another season, it should cost only 60 power to go to the next one and it should fix that

I had the same issue.....my civilzation is basically living in the desert because no water in winter time...I have 10 water reservoirs in the desert since water wont freeze, so my people can have water....very annoying....my pop is at 110, and have 4 stone and wood refineries and 3 iron mines.....they use crap loads of water.....if i didnt have the water reservoirs no one can work...

Yeah if you put them in the mountains, you have no water in the winter

 

They changed how the pumps work in V26

 

In V25 pumps operated no matter what temp it was. So in the winter you had water IF you had enough pumps

Yeah everything is working as intended here. We think it would be confusing to have the number of frozen water be combined with the usable water, as it's possible to have frozen reservoirs in the mountains, whereas an unfrozen one in the grasslands or desert has usable water. So any water that is frozen is simply not displayed there.

 

When placing reservoirs, make sure you pay attention to what areas are cold and hot, so you know how the reservoir will be affected by the temperature. Best way is by using the mouse to just see what the temp is, or by watching where the snow accumulates first.

TBH V25 made better sense

 

in real life, pumps RARELY freeze because moving water is very hard to freeze

in real life water storage freezes very easily because water is not moving

 

So it made sense to freeze the reservoirs in winter but keep the pumps going

 

what you all COULD do is:

 

1) revert to the way V25 did it

2) THEN have technology to insulate reservoirs

 

OR

 

Freeze BOTH.. then have tech later on to insulate both so they dont freeze :)
