I'm noticing that something is setting the food to 0, and not allowing the settlers to collect food.
same here, sometimes work but my villager still think its not 100
Please don't remove the "give resources" option.
It's working for me, I just pause the game, press the hotkey, unpause the game and then disable it and the resources stick. It only works if you have at least one resource of the type you want to give yourself.
That would be a game breaker for me looking how most basic resources are scarce in the vanilla game.
Use CosMos if you want - Or alternatively, use Instant build, then reclaim resources from scrapping - resources are buggy when you mess with them, I only use Cosmos for Gold at early game so I can get stuff from traders - game is early access and buggy, and resources seem to bug out a bit when you mess with them, be warned...
