Im back after a few months away with a name change (Vyllan to shakle66) and already a couple of things to bug you with
First is a game play issue (i think) as the mechanic of your leader continuing to move after you leave leader mode is necessary, however: I started my first game of 0.8 following the tutorial through and I exited leader mode while trying the W,A,S,D controls. No problem there other than, unknown to me at the time, my leader was heading for the ocean. As I hadn't clicked on him he was not highlighted and I was taking a look around the map, when i hit space bar to return to my leader, I was left looking at the ocean. No leader to be seen. I then realised that my followers had gathered by the shore, some eager to take a dip but the majority avoiding the water. At x1 speed W,A,S,D and 'ground clicking' movement is so slow it almost impossible to tell the leader is moving once to far into the water.
I repeated what had happened, so I could highlight the leader for the first screenshot.
The question remains; If my desperate followers have the sense not to go wandering out to sea, why does my oh so intelligent leader do it?
Granted, I don't expect this to happen often and it may just be an issue for biomes where water is close enough to wander into, but it sure could get confusing for new players.

Thanks for reminding me about this. It is possible to make the Leader go for a drink at the moment if you use WASD or left click on ground on the other side of a body of water (a leftover bug from where we redid the pathfinding system). We'll try and get this cleaned up in the next version as it shouldn't affect gameplay much.
