One present reason for homelessness is a recognized bug that forestalls burnt-down houses from being rebuilt. One other extra devilish glitch is that upgrading the beginning household camps will trigger them to by no means transfer to close by burgage plots till you demolish the camps. Lastly, even when you resolve the homelessness situation, the corresponding detrimental modifier can hold hanging round for a bit. “We’re investigating a attainable bug the place the malus outstays its welcome, so we’re undecided on that one,” Robinson mentioned.

That is simply the primary day of Manor Lords’ Early Entry journey as participant suggestions helps Slavic Magic ship on the formidable promise of its medieval technique recreation.
