So first off, hiya, I’m Dannyrulx. I picked up Stonehearth a while ago and had basically played nothing at all of it until yesterday, when I sat down and ended up rubbing my eyes at half-past twelve in the evening, an entire day wasted building a city that ended up in flames as about a million golems cackled over the ruins.
Onto the suggestion.
Groves: Allows a settler to plant trees and harvest anything that grows from them. At the start you can only plant random seeds, but the more experienced your Cultivator is, the better the chances of getting trees you want. The forest would include apples, pears, peaches, cherries, etc, and the desert would include dates, bananas, pomegranates, figs, and the like. You could also grow trees simply to cut them down. Cultivators are promoted from level 3 farmers.
So, what do you think? Good idea? Terrible? Decent?
