Guide to Village Survival:
--------------------------
Written by AdinX

General guide for how to establish a successful village. 

-=Intro=-
When sustaining a population there are a myriad of things that can go wrong: 
sickness, starvation, unhappiness, attacks, and so on. In order to best serve 
your people, I have put together this guide that analyzes some of the steps 
one should take and how to go about them. Keep in mind that everything here 
is mostly a suggestion, so feel free to play your game however makes you happy.

-=Early Development=-
When it comes to starting civilization from scratch, itís fair to say that the 
rules of survival camping apply. To maximize the odds of survival, you need: 
fire + shelter, food, protection, and health.

1. Heat/Shelter
2. Food
3. Protection
4. Health

Depending on your game mode, starting resources/buildings, or overall situation, 
you may skip forward or revert back through these various stages. Food is 
frequently a problem for lots of history/players. Finding the right balance is 
important.

Remember, this game is meant to be a brutal survival experience where only the 
most tactful may survive. Donít be too frustrated if villagers die or buildings 
are destroyed: thatís part of the play.

Gamer Pro Tip: When you first start the game, look to the upper left corner, you 
will see time controls using a - and +. Press the - until time is paused, and 
figure out your surroundings.

Bonus: You can set up all your peasant tasks or construction plans, that way when 
you unpause all of your peasants know what to do!

-=Heat and Shelter=-
At a minimum, you want to ensure your population has hovel mud huts as soon as 
is reasonable. When families are homeless, they will camp in tents that are 
essentially just a place to sleep. It is risky to leave your peasants in tents 
as they will suffer from hypothermia and be fully exposed to predators, costing 
you precious workforce.

That said if you only have enough wood to home a portion of your population, 
youíre going to want to establish a short-term plan: you will need food, wood, 
and stone.

Gamer Pro Tip: Donít build at the furthest edge of your domain. Lots of medieval 
villages made use of plank fencing to establish borders, but it also helps to 
stop some of the early monsters. Place walls around areas where your workers 
donít go, be sure to leave openings for workers to reach the woods to forage.

* Starting Out
When starting from scratch, I begin by placing a lumberjack workshop, a herbalist 
workshop, a trapper and/or fishery, and at least 3 carrot fields (supported by 
1 well). In addition, a chicken coop and goat pen offer daily food supply with 
an option to make a quick increase, 1 of each building is typically plenty.

At this point you can decide whether to begin building homes with the remaining
 resources, or to reinforce the workforce. Either way you will need to collect 
more materials.

-=Food=-
* Food: Quality of Life
By now you should have some if not all of your population living in houses. Your 
food supply may ebb and flow between 0-500 depending on how cautious you are 
about gathering. While ensuring the townsfolk have actual homes, you will want 
to ensure your long term survival with easier access to food.

At the start we built some workshops to gather food, some small animal pens, 
and a couple of fast producing fields. To prepare for Winter, plant 2 cabbage 
fields so additional food can be produced during the cold season. With your 
remaining resources, plant up to 5 wheat fields. If you have a TON of wood and 
free workers, build a mill to enhance the wheat fields.

* Long-Term Planning
Before getting carried away with other resources and needs, itís important to 
remember that metal is the core of all advanced game buildings and mechanics: 
tools, weapons, and ballista bolts all rely on the presence of metal.

Build a forge to gain access to metal. This workshop is dangerous and cheap, 
and thatís exactly why we use it early game. In addition, a watch tower can 
be a massive advancement for a village, as not only does it make it easier to 
defend and protect, but it also increases foraging yields by guiding foragers 
to potential loot spots.

-=Protection=-
By now your villagers should be safe in their homes with full bellies, but the 
local wildlife and monsters may be causing a ruckus and tearing up property. 
Some damage is to be expected, after all: these are starving and desperate 
monsters trying to survive in their own ways.

To start protecting the village, place plank walls around the outer border of 
the village along the edge of the map. Do not completely seal the forest off 
as your villagers still require the resources in the wilds.

Once a basic perimeter is set up, damage to buildings should become much more 
rare, but not altogether impossible. This is when we take from the defense 
strategy of Attack on Titan: a series of walls, each stronger than the last, 
with the core buildings being the most important to protect.

Outer wall: plank perimeter, meant to slow majority of weaker animals, prone 
to excessive damage. Any building protected only by the outer wall should be 
able to take a hit or 2 if necessary. Rabbit pens are the ONLY ideal animal 
for this spot, purely because AFRAID OF BUNNIES. This aids in defending the 
outer wall.

Inner wall: palisades and gates. These canít stand against an army, but they 
will keep the wolves at bay. The ideal location for your animal pens so the 
monsters donít eat all your cows and chickens.

Village Core: stone and reinforced walls.
You should aim to have ALL of your population behind these structures as 
people are your most valuable asset. In addition you may want to protect 
some of your more expensive buildings such as smithy or taverns. Since food 
sources attract monsters, it is best to keep fields and animal pens outside 
of the village core, to keep monsters away from the population.

-=Health=-
By now food should be stable and the village should have relative safety. 
Over time your villagers have likely suffered some injuries, possibly even 
deaths, and your 1 herbalist likely canít keep up with it all. At this stage 
of development, place another 2 herbalist workshops, a trapper, additional 
watch towers if you have less than 2, and a new set of crop fields. Each well 
can support 7 to 10 fields so an additional 1 or 2 wells will be most 
beneficial for the crops. If you didnít build a mill during the previous 
stages, do so now, as this will increase the efficiency of wheat fields. With 
enough fields, wheat can act as the main source of food.

* Staying Alive
From this point forward every decision made may be the one that kills the 
village, whether slowly or all in one shocking storm. Always ensure the 
health and fullness of your peasants, and try to establish a market with 
excess goods for trade, to minimize the need to gather in the woods.
