More elementals, economy changes, and other things.

Posted by on

In addition to stone elementals we have coal, iron and gold ones now. They are tough but for defeating them you will get respective resource.


Two luxury resources have been added (boots and clothes) to make evolving your houses smoother. Also we rebalanced the economy a lot.

Instead of "food + 3 luxury resources" scheme we have "food + alcohol + 4 luxury resources" scheme now. Currently the only type of alcohol in the game is cider, but we'll be adding beer, wine and mead.

Tax & Employment window has been expanded, so now you can set employment priorities much more precisely. Almost every building type has its own category.


Overview window has been expanded as well (nevermind alcohol, boots and clothes placeholders).


Apparently skeletons can go through the gatehouse, which makes it kind of useless. This has been fixed.

We plan to release the update with new economy, elementals and trade improvements in a couple of weeks and then get to diplomacy and/or other new mechanics.
