Another Day, Another Patch. Except this one comes with a whole new town! And not only do you get a new town, but you also get a reason to go there!
But wait!, what’s that? Landless’ view distance has been expanded, showing more of the world as it forms, while at the same time not destroying your computer*… That’s right get ready to see a whole new world as your procedural generation has been increased from 300m radius to 1000m, That’s over 300% of what you can currently see right now! Also because you can see farther, it’s easier to see all the points of interests you visited.
New town and how the trade works. Logansport is also marked with a white or purple waypoint. So players can travel back and forth without trading as well.
Players will find an NPC, where the junkyard is in Leavenworth. Talk to him to start your trade. Unfortunately, these traders are no greenhorns and they have had their fair share of talentless hacks. You will need to give a 100,000 Woil deposit in order to get the contract. Of course deposit is returned to you as well as your payment for delivery when you complete the task.
When you give him the deposit, a trade barge will appear, the player will then be able to put it in tow and take with them to the next town. Be sure you stock up appropriately, I heard Logansport is 2 nautical miles away! That can seem like a far distance if you keep running into wasters…
Just keep the barge in tow and take it near the cranes in Logansport, from there the barge will be removed and you will receive your deposit and reward! The player can then do the same contract but back to Leavenworth!
