like a caravan rolling into town or a hearthling survivalist spawning in the woods and walking to your town. I also think that you should only be able to trade once you have the trade stall for the NPCs to walk to.
Maybe somebody could even code some sort of vehicle that the goods would arrive on? And the hearthlings could load and unload it. That would be pretty cool.
I’ve seen the merchants that comes to operate the market stall. They walk. The merchants that are announced with the pop-up notification are a different matter though.
I’d definitely be pretty hyped for a train, for instance.
from what i understand the merchants that you summon with the market stalls were the first step in the direction of having all merchants physically show up, could be wrong though…
it would be much more interesting then having them just magically appear out of thin air. anyone willing to make a mod of a merchant cart and donkey? XD
Would be nice with a sea merchant stall, placing adjacent to water-block at the lake, and a ship appear to trade.
Building a harbor-district with ships coming and go.
