Okay, so there’s a way to assign a bed to a Hearthling, but is there a way (other than watching the bed all day) to find out who has claimed a bed already?
Through the same interface?
Here’s a screenshot of the assign bed ui with an already assigned Hearthling:
And here’s a screenshot of a bed with no assigned onwer:
If no beds say they’ve been claimed, does that mean hearthlings are basically sleeping in whatever bed is available, and not laying claim to one?
Correct. They will take the closest available bed once they are tired. Be aware, at the moment bed claims aren’t restrictive to other Hearthlings. Any Hearthling who owns a bed will only sleep in their bed, but any other Hearthling can sleep there too. This is planned to be fixed in a later update.
