Major Update - Township Rework - v1.1.2 (12th April 2023)

Township Rework

For the full details, please see here (in case I missed anything here): https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1267910/view/3692428039467200814

When loading into the rework, your Town will automatically convert to the new system based on your current Township Skill Level.

Your Town will convert BEFORE offline progress calculations begin.

Passive “Town Update” System (Formerly known as Ticks)

  • Township now passively updates every 1 hour, up to a maximum of 24 hours while offline (like the standard offline time)
  • You no longer earn “ticks” to spend.
  • If you had ticks remaining prior to this update, they will be available to use as you please until they reach zero. Now referred to as “Legacy Ticks”.
  • Legacy Ticks have been converted to the new Town Update length of 1 hour. For every 12 ticks you had, you have been granted 1 Legacy Tick.
  • It is not possible to earn more Legacy Ticks.

General Township

  • Population now defines the XP you gain per Town Update. For example, 100K Population = 100K XP gained.
  • Happiness now increases your Population by (Happiness)%, and can go over 100%.
  • Education increases your resource production rates by (Education)%, and can go over 100%
  • The Max Skillcape now requires Township Level 99 to purchase and equip.

Removed systems

These systems have been removed from Township:

  • Map selection
  • Purchasing of Biome land. Everyone will get refunded the total GP spent purchasing land when loading into the update.
  • Citizen age
  • Citizen death
  • Workers and Jobs
  • Citizens menu
  • Trader GP limit
  • Food, coal and clothing usage per tick


  • Health directly affects Population.
  • Your population (after Happiness bonus) is then multiplied by (Health)%.
  • Health starts at 100%, and goes down by 1% each Town Update. This cannot go below 20%.
  • Spend Potions or Herbs to increase this back to 100%.


  • The Building system has been revamped. You now construct buildings up to a certain quantity until it upgrades.
  • Buildings now have “efficiency” that degrades over time and requires repairs (one button click). A building has a 25% chance to degrade by 1% per Town Update. The efficiency cannot be reduced below 20%.
  • Buildings contained within Biomes are now predefined and are the same for everyone.
  • All building costs and resource generation numbers have completely changed to accommodate for the rework.

New Feature - Seasons

  • There are now 4 standard Seasons in the game which last for 3 days each - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.
  • Each Season comes with their own unique Modifiers to the Town.
  • Some Worships provide access to rare and unique Seasons.

New Feature - Casual Tasks

  • You can now obtain a Casual Task to complete every 5 hours.
  • A maximum of 5 Casual Tasks can be stored to complete whenever you like.
  • These tasks provide XP, GP and Township Resources for completing.
  • They can be skipped for 10M GP.

New Task Category - Throne of the Herald

  • Only available for those who own the Throne of the Herald DLC
  • 20 new tasks are available to complete relating to the DLC.

New Worship - The Herald

  • The Herald is now available as a Worship selection when you defeat them in Combat (Throne of the Herald DLC)

General Worship Changes

  • All Worships have been changed. Details are listed in the Township Rework breakdown linked at the start.
  • You are able to change a Worship, but it will cost 50M GP, destroys your Worship buildings and reduces all building efficiency to 50%.

Reworked Trader

  • Trader is now available 24/7 as long as you have at least 1 Trading Post constructed.
  • The Trader no longer allows you to trade resources into Township.
  • The Trader no longer has raw resources available for trading out.

Trader Consumables and Items

  • The Trader has 30 unique Consumables that you can purchase, each providing some kind of benefits that will assist with your progression outside of Township. These are listed in the Township post linked at the start.

Consumable Upgrades

  • The Trader sells a Consumable Enhancer which allows you to update some consumables in the game.

Notifications v2 (BETA)

A new notification system has been added that you can enable from “Settings”. It is disabled by default for now.

This system is in Beta and will be continuously worked on to provide more options and customization. Most of its features are only available in English at this stage until it leaves Beta.

Breakdown of changes

  • Notifications have a fresh, new look.
  • Severely reduces the spam and performance hit of notifications.
  • You can change the position of where notifications appear.
  • Some notifications can be marked as “Important”, which means they remain on screen until you click to dismiss them.

?5855 (13th April 2023)

The game will now provide you with a "free death" upon loading if a recent change to the game causes your character to unequip items. This free death lasts for the duration of offline Combat calculations.

A free death means when dying in Combat, you will not lose any items and your Hardcore character will not be deleted.

?5858 (14th April 2023)

To help alleviate the reported issues of some Worships causing Rune Essence production to fall below manageable amounts, we have made the following changes to Magic Emporiums:

When all Magic Emporiums have been constructed, it is a 15-20% increase in total Rune Essence production.

Half of the production will come from the Snowlands Biome, which will alleviate Rune Essence production issues from negative Desert modifiers like Terran or Aeris Worships

?5875 (17th April 2023)

  • Adjusted Casual Task requirements slightly, making tasks that require the delivery of high level Items to not show up until a higher Township Level.

  • Fixed issue where Adventure Mode characters would get Casual Tasks for Skills that are not unlocked.
