The Blacksmith[edit | edit source]

The Blacksmith crafts weapons and armor for your footmen.

  • Mine ore from mountains, then have the Blacksmith smelt it into ingots

Mining, Phase 2[edit | edit source]

  • Ore will now drop from stone voxels
  • Lots of bug fixes and performance enhancements

Party System[edit | edit source]

The party system allows you some degree of control of your hearthlings’ movements.

  • Access the party management screen using the red banner icon on the main toolbar
  • Parties can be of any size and contain any mix of jobs

New Rules for Immigration[edit | edit source]

You will now receive a daily update with the requirements for gaining new hearthlings to your town. If you fulfill the requirements, you will always be granted the option of accepting a new settler.

New Lighting Model, Stage 1[edit | edit source]

  • Lights now cast somewhat realistic shadows
  • Fire now glows. Oooooo.
