Hearthlings Spawn on top of flag placed on Road
  1. Place flag on road
  2. Wait for new Hearthling
  3. Hearthling spawns on top of flag.

Note: Good way of screening Hearthlings if you don’t mind them starving to death.


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.
