  1. Place flag on road

This irritates the daylights out of me. Though for perfection playthroughs I could see it as a way to uhm… weed out the weak so to speak.

It’s been in the game for quite a long time, I guess.

This is strange, seems like it doesn’t happen unless you upgrade the banner first and then move it on top of the road :thinking:

Noted for 1.1, thanks for reporting!

You can manually build a ladder beside the Banner.

I used that Bug as a Feature - Hearthlings will no longer spawn at your friends camp and have to walk a distance.
