Hats and Helms![edit | edit source]

Moar Monsters? Moar Armor! This release finally implements a new schema for hair that allows for hats and helmets. Some classes come with hats by default, and others can get helmets from advanced crafting recipes. For modders, this release also includes a new way to define the colors of things from json palettes, allowing more variation in hearthling hair colors, skin tones and more. As a side effect of this update, hearthlings imported from older saves may now look different than they used to; think of it as Xtereme Makeover, Stonehearth Edition.
