Welcome to the Against the Storm Feedback Board. Here you can post your suggestions for future changes to the game, as well as vote for features requested by other community members.

The purpose of this board is to serve as a guide for future changes and additions to the game. Although not everything will make it into the final product (due to factors like limited resources, technical problems or a conflict with our design principles), Against the Storm is very much a community driven game and we will try to incorporate as much feedback as possible.

The general principles:

  1. Please keep the title short and descriptive, and use the “details” section to further elaborate on your idea/feedback.
  2. Please try and avoid repeating already posted suggestions. Notice, that when typing something in the “title” section of a new suggestion, the site automatically filters through already existing posts.
  3. Use the vote feature and comment on posts. This is the main way we will determine if a feature or change is highly requested by the community, or something that can wait a bit longer before we consider it.
  4. Notice that all posts have a status (“open”, “under consideration”, “in progress”, etc.). These indicate what is currently happening with a given topic
    • open - it’s waiting/not yet reviewed/collecting upvotes under consideration - we’re actively talking about it in the studio
    • planned - the suggestion will be implemented and is planned for a future release
    • in progress - we’re on it!
    • done - the suggestion is implemented and released
    • unlikely - the suggestion is put on hold, we’re unlikely to implement it
  5. You can filter suggestions based on category and status, as well as sort them (Trending, Top, Newest, Olders).

Some interesting advice i heard:
Add viceroys with different styles.
e.g A farmer background viceroy excels at agriculture.A viceroy with a background in private alcohol production excels at managing the liquor industry.Commerce background excels at trading .Robber backgound no punishment when attack on merchants





e.g Tropico

Excellent game!
1.Can we add additional levels after the Sealed Forest? Sometimes it doesn't feel satisfying enough.Especially when getting a bunch of buffs.Sealed Forest gets boring after mastering it several times.I hope to add some new content by adding the ultimate boss, e.g a strict Queen as the final challenge. Then couterback the Smoldering City.
Mode may be like Slay the spire?
2.Rather than villagers just leaving when unhappy, let's increase the chance of riots. Managing and suppressing unrest could add to the game's fun, e.g Palword or Tropico
3.add random events during the game, e.g Frostpunk

would love to have the main game have a "hard mode" where the map is just littered with modifier as you work your way to a seal.

I love to do daily expeditions on P20 where there are 2 negative modifier and one positive - but playing this way makes me miss out on the main game where you work your way towards a seal.

would love to have the main game have a "hard mode" where the map is just littered with modifier as you work your way to a seal. You would often find yourself sandwiched in between multiple hard modifiers and maybe even a positive one because there are so many.

this would be a nice challenge for those of us who are really proficient in the game.

First of all thank you for this amazing game. This has been one of my favourite games ever.

I would like to suggest this feature:

- Enable an option for idle workers in buildings. If the worker is idle cause they reached the maximum production set (if there is one) or if they don't have anything to do (like farmers when they already harvested everything), they will go to help others with other tasks.

Best Regards,

Can you add an "idle" flag to the 'alt' hotkey overlay? Would be very helpful to know who is idle when scanning building worker slots. Thanks!

Feature request:

Love the game! Been playing since early access! :)

A freeplay mode with no way to lose would be fun, at least for me. No hostility, no negative repercussions from certain orders or from the storm. But also with no way to win or progress through the city, it would be mostly for those who want to build cute little rain towns and see or practice certain maps. I mostly play peaceful and pioneer, pioneer games take a long time, but I also feel like peaceful (while the right kind of difficulty for easy mode) doesn't allow me to scratch the itch of building towns just to build them with no desirable purpose minus aesthetics only. (Or maybe other reasons too!)

Anyway thank you for your wonderful work! I truly enjoy this game.

It would be great to have a few more upgrades / higher level cap for the meta progression. I'm already at P20 but haven't even gotten the Gold Seal yet, it feels like the progressions stops too early relative to the length of the game.


A

We need items like in POE awakened sextant to reroll modifiers on a cycle. Example, all forest will be blood forest, blue prints in traders will show 2 less, spawning a trader cost 5 ember. Put it for more rewards upon completing a cycle. Instead of a difficulty level which is boring. Of course you can do more like a no defeat run which rewards the player for more rewards upon completion. You can find more examples in running sanctum in POE.


A

Why are people posting feature suggestions/bugs in this comments section, instead of as their own posts to can be voted on?


A

Toggle for an overlay to show all rain-engine'd buildings & which rain type each is + perhaps expanded info on the tank readouts at the top of the screen to list all the buildings for each type?
There isn't really a visual cue as to which buildings have engines or not unless you can memorise them & their rain types, or they're covered in cysts I guess


A

More options when marking trees for woodcutter camps?
Perhaps an option to prioritise certain selected trees over others, so I can queue up which trees within the camp’s range are cut down first.
Also a hotkey in tree marking mode to ignore trees out of range would be nice, similar to holding CTRL to ignore trees on the edge of an undiscovered glade


A

1. Save/preserve production limits between games.
2. Option to choose 3th race during the game
3. Foxes seem a bit underpowered?
4. Indicator for each terrain what are possible races/their appearance chances etc.


A

When selecting new buildings for earning reputation points. It would be helpful to indicate what recipes you already have access to and their star level. Much like when you click on a production building and hover over a recipe it highlights the buildings you have that can produce it.


A

Sometimes it would be useful to have highlighted in the text of cornerstones etc. if you have the relevant buildings which are being affected.


A

Being able to rotate buildings via click on the mouse wheel would be nice. Missed this feature the moment I started the game.

And if you could relocate a clicked building by using R would also be nice:
Choosing a building.
First time clicking R let´s relocate it.
Every further R rotates the building.

Any interesting in endless mode? And maybe more levels and new upgrade that for player not good at it but have played a lot of times.

Please add a build order priority queue (I suggest bottom left area) so one is not held to ransom to the order I placed buildings down. In a chaotic game where decisions change frequently, it is quite irksome that I have to dismantle all previously placed construction orders so that the right building is prioritized at the right time, thank you.

Hi , love the game i would love if you could guys add some way of capping or diving farm production like a wheat farm sow and plant 6/12 fiel slots and the rest veggies it really would help to controll the farm out put

Suggestions:
1. Make it able to zoom further out
2. Have copy feature when selecting a building, so you can easily build the same building that you have selected.
3. If some 'Pause on....' options are enabled, can a message/alert tell you what happened, so you immediately know why the game paused?

Great game!

My first time attempting to reforge a seal I was given the option of having trade routes at a certain level, and again later of completing trades of a certain value. I did not have trade routes unlocked at that point, so those options were meaningless to me and rather frustrating when I couldn't complete them. I would suggest either hiding seal reforging options that you haven't unlocked, or offering alternative options if you don't have the features unlocked.

Would be nice to have paths being able to work with decorations, for example, when putting fences or lights i cant put paths there even tho there is space to do so. It creates an unsatisfying overall look to the settlement.

Thank you for such an awesome game, and thank you even more for caring about player input.

Add demolish for area instead of one square at a time to delete things like path.

If you only have one species with builders available, hitting alt should automatically give you that species.

LOVE this game! Over 130 hours and still playing all the time!

Few things I'd like to see:

Being able to rotate among all camps when clicked on one as opposed to just that specific camp. I lose track of my camps once the city really sprawls out and if it is deactivated because I have no available nodes to gather from I can't find it when I open a new area to gather from. This would help!

On the note above, this would be helpful with production buildings as a whole as well.

Being able to rotate through decorations would also be helpful. I often have to move them as more space opens up and I need to place buildings in the right spots.

I've also noticed on some maps (coral forest especially) that the highlighted circle to select trees to be cut down (or to unselect trees to cut) can be almost invisible in the misty areas. On a similar note, trees selected to be cut down that are not within the range of a woodcutter can also be difficult to see as highlighted to be cut.

There's also a couple instances where you can't click on a building to see what it can produce on certain screens where it would be helpful (wish I could remember exactly which ones).

There's still a couple screens (again, can't quite remember which) where info on what the map offers as potential resources is not available to view when it would be helpful.

Being able to select a "permanent" road option somehow would be nice as well! So we don't have to select roads and then which road type every time. We just click roads real quick and pave onward.

If I get to the screens I couldn't remember about above I'll be sure to edit this post and let you guys know. What an amazing game! Can't wait for the content and continued QoL updates! Thank you!

It would be nice if the Smoldering City upgrades screen had a table showing the cumulative effects of the upgrades you have bought. Not the fundamental/embarkation upgrades, just the small %increases and the +1 to nodes.

I'm very much enjoying this game and I can see why it's got Overwhelmingly Positive reviews on Steam. I do have a few suggestions to recommend, all of them fairly small, quality of life, changes.

First, a dedicated Camera mode to allow for screenshots would be awesome, imo.

Second, (this is my biggest suggestion) an endless mode where you can create practice cities and use the races, blueprints, etc. that you've already unlocked, in biomes that you've completed settlements on at least once, and be able to come back to this city to play around with it. You would gain nothing such as resources or items doing this, just have an infinite city that you can come back to instead of only having the one-and-done settlements.

Third, and this is more of a quality of life suggestion, add a toggleable overlay so that you can see each Hearth's heating radius without having to click the hearth each time. Like have it be fairly faint or marked by a dotted line on the ground at the edge when the hearth is not explicitly selected, and then fully visible when the hearth is selected or when a building that has to be built within its range is being placed/moved. This would make city planning a bit easier imo.

Just lost my first attempt at sealing a rift, not because of anything I did except that for the second seal I was given the option of standing level which I couldn't do because I hadn't earned enough experience to do trade routes yet and the other two options were both earn reputation points but each one was for earning in a different way. UNFORTUNATELY. When I got that I was already at max reputation. So couldn't earn any more at all what-so-ever. So being unable to continue I kept playing it thinking well maybe I can earn just a bunch of experience except no that didn't happen either... can you tell I am frustrated? because I did nothing wrong except earn reputation too fast and got to max and basically LOST because of that... so maybe fix that... maybe DONT have two out of three options be the same thing just in case this sort of thing happens. kay? gonna not play for awhile I am a little annoyed at the few hours I just apparently wasted.


Avatar

Boskov01

Have you tried doing certain Glade events? Like sending supply caches to the Smoldering City? Those reward reputation and should allow you to earn for the Seal quests.


A

In the recipes tab of buildings there should be an option to "do until X units in storage (then turn off recipe once order is complete)" or "do Y recipe Z number of times".

As it stands the limit function is, well... limited. A lot of time is wasted pausing the game trying to micromanage production when it could be made much simpler and automated with the sugestion given.


A

I would like to be able to tell my farmers to drop resources off in farmhouse/plantation etc instead of running all the way to main storage when the storage of the production building is empty

This doc shows how to backup your saves. You have to do it manually after you close the game, but (1) it works, and (2), the doc also has links to pre-made saves, so that you can jump back to somewhere near where you left off.

===== Glade Event Tracker =======
Maybe I am not seeing it or have not unlocked it, but an option to track Glade Events would be helpful, particularly Dangerous and Forbidden Glade Events. Perhaps the information could be just like the tracking under "Orders" that are on the right hand side, with the name of the event, the time remaining until the Threat occurs, and a way to quickly jump to the event in question.

Also, regarding the "Orders" tracker, a way to toggle them on and off quickly would be helpful.

Concern: This game works my PC's memory like nothing else.

I'm currently only in the main menu, and it uses more memory than Google Chrome with 20 open tabs. I've tried turning the graphics settings down so that my laptop's fans would (shut up!) slow down a bit but nothing seems to work. (It is an expensive gaming laptop btw and not even a year old).

Is it possible to dumb down the graphics a bit more or have a way to reduce anything that can make this game run smoother or am I stuck with being in a wind turbine (sound-wise) while I play a game that I love?

Suggestion: Adding a use for the harvester's camp in marshlands biome. Maybe have reed be a node that can spawn.

Concern: I really enjoy getting my own home in Smoldering City. However, I was disappointed the first time I entered the home. I thought it was going to be customizable, like so many other games nowadays across genres provide to the player. Instead, it is just a 'medal display case'. Lots of opportunity for replayability being missed out here taking this archaic approaches to a home. Games on the SNES and Genesis were doing what you have done for a home 30+ years ago.

Suggestion: Consider making the house interactive, allowing the player to customize it for Pro's and Con's. You could even have the player lay out their own housing floor plan, what the rooms will look like, etc. As you gain experience, you can spend some resources on expanding/unlocking areas of your home. This is, after all, a building game. I won't list examples but there are tons and tons and tons of different ways this has been accomplished in many modern games across genres, with some excellent replayability options in these games by including this kind of dynamism.

Concern: The transition from season (i.e., drizzle, storm, etc.) is rough in a number of ways. 1) The game sometimes 'hiccups' at these transitions where it feels like the game could crash. It hasn't yet crashed on me but I get the sense that on other systems it might. 2) The transition is jagged. The music changes in a strange way (missing flow/integration). 3) The change is abrupt. The time counter helps but a smoother transition like a build up to the storm or build down at the end of the storm would make the game feel better to play.

Suggestion: I am not sure about the potential crashing issue, you'll have to figure that out. As for the abrupt transitions, think spring/fall type transitions. You could even have season dynamic where sometimes there is short 'spring/fall' or a long 'spring/fall'.


Avatar

Scott Boyce

Concern: Sometimes it feels like the levels are too short.

Suggestion 1: Have a sandbox mode separate from the campaign where you can just build and build and build. I recognize that you can keep building when you finish a mission, but a separate sandbox mode would alleviate a number of criticisms I have read about the short term building.

Suggestion 2: Have some sort of dynamic in the game where sometimes you have to return to a community that you have already completed. You could move on to several other missions then get some sort of "This town you built now has blight, no water, etc.". Please return to save your community. This would bring in some nostalgia for previous levels the player may have forgotten, adding another dynamic to how you can plan the communities.

Just finished first blight cycle and enjoying the game. If any of these are a repeat of something already done, then ignore. I will make a separate comment for each suggestion.

Concern: Part of the fun I have with the game is trying to best configure my community. However, after only a few hours of play, I can see this may lead to boredom. Not much to organizing just squares and rectangles.

Suggestion: Have multiple different shaped building alternatives for the buildings. Think Tetris block shapes for placement. It would more dynamic and engaging then just placing squares and rectangles.

Ability to reroll ancient seal quests, or at least make them retroactive. I got one round where I had to either sell goods worth 100 amber (I had already sold goods upwards of 150 for orders and had nothing left to sell), do two each of loyalty, corruption, and empathy (I already chopped through too many glades getting to the seal that all the unsearched ones were too far away), or gain 6 reputation points through resolve (I got to 4 before my reputation was at max). Thus I was hard locked out of forging the seal and could only wait in despair as my beavers tried franticly to find compatible glade events and I lost to Impatience. (This was a silver seal on viceroy difficulty)


  • Avatar
A

I think ancient seal quests are fixed so you can just plan ahead. The events quest is rng dependent but that's why you have a choice of three. Also the resolve quest (as well as the complex food, housing, service quest) is retroactive and you can still gain reputation even when maxed though doing so will give you nothing.

希望砍伐过后的树木可以再生。
这样我们会得到一个林荫大道里面的世外桃源。
能极大的延续玩家的游玩时长。而不是频繁的逼迫大家换地图。


A

游戏的一些设置以及耐玩性方面的建议
一:游戏开局时火堆以及主仓库应该可以自由挪动。
(很反感火堆和仓库出现在一些奇怪的位置因而不能合理的利用火堆范围放置建筑,然后不得不重新开局)
二:增加一些特殊建筑或者是延长声望和急躁的要求来增加游戏的耐玩性。如果能增加战斗那样更好。
(即使已经有试炼探险自由模式,但是因为毫无正反馈也让人觉得索然无味。建议可以增加一些植树小屋可以自由种树而不是一会挪动一下伐木小屋,增加一些沃土小屋可以不必完全靠运气去刷地图。也可以设置双倍的声望和急躁才可以胜利等等来增加耐玩性。)
三:希望可以增加战斗模式。
(基本上现在是建筑刚刚完善,游戏已经要结束了,多玩几次就让人没有再玩下去的欲望了。希望可以增加一些作战单位的建筑,比如战士,弓手,法师之类的,在森林里可以增加一些敌对部落或者中立部落等等,可以固定贸易路线或者战斗征服。这样这游戏基本上就是经典中的经典了。)

Firstly, absolutely love the game. I'm obsessed and have been playing at least 6 hours a day. So great job guys!

Some ideas:
- Shift clicking on a product/ingredient icon should hyperlink you to the corresponding recipes panel from anywhere. Frequently I feel I have to double check what I can build and this could really help reduce clicks for improved UX.
- Whilst the recipes panel is nice in a kind of official documentation style I wonder if there is scope for a hierarchical flow diagram of sorts to visualize more clearly how products fit into the vast array of building options.

Improved trading.

Hello. I would like to suggest tracking the production of already created settlements to determine the requested wares. If the previous settlement produced a huge amount of planks, then it will not request them. Well, accordingly, if purchasing is possible, this settlement will offer planks. And vice versa, if there is no production of, for example, wine, but it is needed in a tavern, there will be a high demand for it. This will allow settlements to specialize and increase the role of trade, as well as reduce the effectiveness of the same strategy.

Absolutely love Against the Storm!! Such a well-crafted game with a deep and beautiful soul.

My request is that when selecting trees for harvest, that the graphics be much clearer as to which trees are highlighted. Especially on certain maps when there is already a bit of a glow/radiance to the forest, it can be difficult to tell which trees I've selected. Currently what I do is pay attention to the increase and decrease in amount of glow and try to pause it when the highlighted trees are at their brightest.
Maybe what could be done is that when paused, the highlighted trees automatically snap to their brightest level?
Also, maybe depending on which map you're on, the highlighted color could be something that contrasts sharply with the color of the trees in that environment for optimal visibility?
Just my two cents! I find myself always squinting and struggling with the visuals when picking where to send my woodcutters.

I am in love with this game, but my inner autistic mind would love to have a button to fix/jump the camera to north (and perhaps rotate it by 90 degrees when pressing again). Thanks!

I am so super happy you guys implemented the camera reset key, thanks so much! There is a very small bug remaining, when i am fully zoomed out and press H, the camera aligns but zooms all the way in. Maybe this is a quick fix? Thanks again!

This world deserves some birds! How about a special building that provides postal pigeons? These fly from hearth to hearth, increasing resolve. This would be another incentive to build several hearths.

Would be nice if building several trading posts had an extra effect: traders will visit more often, but prices are worse (because the traders compete with one another).

It would be nice if there were some clear icons near resources... Sometimes it is hard to see a wheat field or small leech broodmother against a blue background, Having the option of a small grain or wheat icon near them would make it so these aren't missed


A

This can be achieved by pressing the resources overlay button (default key binding:B)! Off-screen nodes will have icons on the edges of the screen
This overlay will also appear when selecting a camp on the map. Useful when relocating a camp after all the nodes are gathered.
Hope this helps :)

Please can you add (far) better rewards on the daily quest ? (royal campement) It has been 4 times in a row / 4 That I have better reward of tool/machinery/food somewhere with a normal game within my reach. I don't see the point of it, usually in any video game the dailies are powerful xp/mats buffer compared to normal playthroughs. Nothing is motivating me here (at all !) beside the description for a fun-ish game but well ... for lesser rewards : meh . (Also your game is really awesome, a true jewel cheers !)


A

Need the ability to set combination shortcut keys in the Key Bindings. Like "X" for marking trees and "Shift + X" for clearing trees.


A

Not sure if this is the best place for this. I love parts and pieces of this game, but have some features I would really like to see to give it some more oomph. Also I know some stuff is in development already.

The good:
- Pacifist Roguelite city-builder.
- Discrete shortish gameplay units.
- Cool lore and game concept. Love the different peoples Love making them happy.
- Cool glade events.

Some limitations: (I could be missing some of the meta-story based on how far I have played (or it could be in development). But...
- The tension of influence points to finish the map and the year countdown on the storm cycles means that some choices are clearly optimal and others only serve to extend the time on each map for no benefit and are therefore never pursued.
- There are "deck-like" elements to the game, but perks (so far?) can only add cards to the various decks of perks or buildings or orders, but there is no means to remove them. This results in no meaningful strategic choices. Sure I can reroll, but that gives me another randomized offering. Making tailoring a strategy to a map type or available resources, or chained buildings impossible. I want to curate my options. Favor specific types of builds like: Humanocentric, go all in on textile production, trade routes, or glade-busting with massive tool production. Something to have agency / strategy in how I play the game.
- Related to above. There are persistent unlocked buildings and persistently locked buildings. I want to have the ability to control this more so than the linear level up system. I want to "trade up" some of my starter buildings, once I have the starter resources for them. Or at least put them in a limited subpool of x guaranteed offerings out of y.
- Meta story. There are some factions. But what do they do? How does choosing one help me? Unique buildings? Unique rewards? Unique obstacles?
- I want some more semi-persistent boons within/between cycles. Things I can target on the world map, more so than seals. Extra trade route. Supply caches. Survivors. I know the Queen's resupply is there and there are events that are map modifiers giving a local adjustment to surrounding tiles. But things I can "add to my caravan"

The bad:
- Winning and losing seem to take a long time. I want to win quicker and lose quicker. High-tension nailbiters are good sometimes too, but I feel like I my options now are I can win slowly or lose REALLY slowly. (I play at pioneer right now. I know there's added complexity / difficulty at veteran with blight mechanics)
- So much of the lore, which is really cool, seems obtuse. I wish I could decipher the ancient tablets or collect them for benefit. I wish they could reveal things about the world. I want to know about corruption and the frogmen. I want to interact with them. Gain their favor or have them interfere through boons and modifiers in glade / map events.


A

I want my previous settlements to be able to help my future ones. To provide unique / tailored trade routes. Or resource donations to further the caravan

Easier way to remove not build things. Like shift + delete does remove all unbuild things of that type or a drag like farm field for deleting.

Budding in here!

I think if selecting the building itself where you have the 'move' icon, an additional icon to delete/remove it would be wonderful. Or the ability to set up hotkeys ourselves.

There should be an option to auto fill a building with a worker when one is available. For example, when workers are done with a cache they can be auto assigned to something else.

Good day everyone! I got acquainted with this game not so long ago, but I already managed to get my friend hooked on it, we love this kind of games, but we also love ... fishing. It would be interesting to add to the game something similar to fishing, or lakes that appear in the clearings as well as vegetable gardens. And the race that is adapted to fishing and water is definitely cute frogs) Although mermaids or water spirits also sound inspiring)


A

This game is really well done. I've recommended it to friends because, I assume you're nearly done. A nice addition would be to have a larger circle toggle for marking trees

Sometimes the density of trees makes it feel like erasing in MS Paint. Mind you I'm only level 6 at the moment. Definitely one of the few games recently that is worth buying!

I hope the game can add more rewards for passing levels, such as being able to use castle resources to exchange for certain items, so that veteran players can have more incentive to play on, I have over 30,000 castle resources right now, with no use for them!

Map filter that highlights all currently visible nodes. It's great to have the feature on the camp buildings themselves, but i would really appreciate the ability to scan the map to quickly assess if anything is about to dry up or if a new node was unlocked i happened to glance over in a new glade.

On top, when hovering over food, materials, items, the popup blocks the numbers of items in that category. it would be useful if it popped up just below those numbers or just somewhere else. Also, when selecting workers for a building, it would be useful if it said which worker (human or beaver or lizard) benefited from that job (farming, wood, meat etc), instead of having to hover over their icons all the way on the left side of screen. Thank you


A

a reverse trade route, where you can request a type of item for X amber, and other tradeable settlements ll send u the items in exchange for the ember. how long it ll take depends on how good the ratio item/amber is and of course item price.

No access to porridge

Porridge cannot be produced by nearly any means in the first few levels before certain buildings unlocked by the milestone. I think that the milestone should be adjusted to make porridge accessible.

Being able to adjust the difficulty higher without the prestige system

E.g.

Increase the amount of influence points needed to win

Increase the rate that impatience increases

The purpose is to increase the difficulty in ways each play likes to find challenging - I like fast increasing impatience

A better explanation of what different biomes are and do. Are you only allowed certain species in different biomes? Will you find some things more prevalent in different biomes and some things not at all? I'm sure that's all true, but I wish there were an easier way to access that information while on the world map.


A

A tooltip pointer that points to your main warehouse when it's off screen. I've gotten lost on the map more than one when my mouse fell. A little pointer that shows you to the center of the map would be extremely helpful.

Fertile soil placement, could be unlocked? or a building that starts generating fertile soil around it, for the exchange of rain water?

For upgrade cards, could you space/bold/color change the technical text away from the flavor text so we don't have to keep fishing for the bonus on repeated runs? (since repeated runs are the core design)


Example:
FIREKEEPER'S SECRET TECHNIQUES
"An old manuscript detailing forgotten burning rites. Fuel burns 33% longer in Hearths. Sacrificing in the hearth consumes 33% less resources."

BECOMES

"An old manuscrip detailing forgotten burning rites.

-Fuel burns 33% longer in Hearths
-Sacrificing in the Hearth consumes 33% less resources"

This game is insanely addictive and I love it, but the closer i get to the top level I wish there was more left to unlock. Love to see some additions to the top of the upgrade tree, maybe some late-game production buildings that can produce four items instead of three, or buildings that can double as production and service buildings

Produce only till X ressources are left in store / only produce when there are more than X ressources in store feature:

With Packs of crops etc. it is sad running out of food or having too much food but having to fear producing packs will end up in starvation.
With ressources needed for different things it is sad running out just because one building grabbed all ingredient and the other can't do anything anymore...
Also for managing your ressources and not running out of one because you depleted it with production...
Or just thinking that one thin i don't really need but if i have too many ingredients and only than why not produce it

Having a feature/button that helps not depleting all ressources but only produce till X ressources are left in store and than autostop would really be nice and helpful.

I have one/two suggestions for the end game

Bought the game less than a week ago and been playing it every day so far, and loving every bit of it.

I'm on lvl 13 now and I see that max level is 17. This to me feels a little "empty" as far as end goals go.

The replayability is fantastic as far as there is something to be obtained, such as levels and perks, but once that is gone then the completionist in me gets bored.

So my suggestion for the end game conceptually the same, but twofold.

One possibility could be to make "smouldering outposts" similar to the Smouldering city. By similar I mean as a permanent piece on the board that takes up one hexagon. the function could be to have greater reach and/or passive bonuses, for example that it passively draws resources from the surrounding hexagons. To create these outposts one would have to find exclusive resources around the map, or buy them for a very high price of the common resources within the smouldering city, which could make the completionist grind be interesting for much longer. The outposts could be built only on fixed locations to avoid the player filling the whole map with them.

The other suggestion I have is: make the Smouldering City upgradable. But won't that make the game too easy with too many additional bonuses? Yes it would. So instead of getting more perks and more resources, how about getting the pleasure of completely conquring the map? When the Smouldering City reaches level 2 you can start to permanently reclaim hexagons on the map by purchasing the hexagons the same way perks are bought at lvl 1.

Hi guys, first of all: AMAZING GAME.

So, here's my suggestion: when we hover the mouse on a map deposit (for example roots), a window pop-up and tells us in which places the deposit can also be obtained apart from the map. It would be really nice if the window also tells us which types of recipes can be made with the item, i.e., what can I do with roots?


A

you can use the RECIPE menu point " top right to see what resource/ingredient can be obtained or made in what way and what they are used for, Its pretty handy.
