Finding the best location for your village can be a difficult task, but that’s why we’re here to help. In this guide, we’re going to go over some great places to build your first village. First, let’s take a look at where to build your very first house as part of a Chapter 1 quest.

The quest for the first chapter of the game requires you to complete the following tasks:

  • Collect:

    • 10 sticks

    • 2 Peter

    • 1 stone ax

    • 1 wooden hammer

    • 32 Straw

  • Build your first house

  • Cut 5 trees

When you place your house, you will have two options; place it at random to complete the quest, or place it where you want to establish your village.

A simple tiny house doesn’t require a ton of resources, so if you’re not happy with the location you’ve chosen, you can easily use a hammer to destroy the structure. You don’t need to be tied to a location once you’ve built a house, so feel free to move it around or test other areas.

Next, let’s take a look at the right places to establish your village, along with some tips to keep in mind when choosing a location.

Once you have permission to build, you can build just about anywhere. In the image above, you can see a pretty good location for a village. This location is close to the city of departure and is close to resources. If you can’t decide on a location, this place works great.

Before you install and expand your village, there are a few things to keep in mind, so let’s take a look at them.

Access to resources

The most important factor in deciding where to build your village is access to resources. At the start of the game you will not have any villagers to manage, but as you add houses and recruit villagers you will need to provide them with a place to live, food, water and wood. of heating. Your village should have access to all of these resources. For example, if you choose to settle in a location with no water source, you may need to make multiple trips to a lake or river and fill buckets for your villagers.

Once you have built the well, you can draw water from it or assign villagers to work it, providing water. Before you build a well, however, you will need to collect water manually.

Below are some other important resources that are important to have nearby.

Globally, a location near a small stream with a forest nearby is a great choice. If you choose to build too far in the mountainous areas to the south, you may find it difficult to provide resources for your villagers at the start of the game.

In addition to the resources available, you should also Consider the terrain of the area in which you want to build your village. Several steep cliffs can create a problem as you expand your village; cliffs can limit the area you have to work with.

There is also two islands in the valley which can be found in the river passing through the center of the map. You can build here, but keep in mind that they do not provide the most space to build. As you place new buildings, you will quickly run out of space.

Proximity to other villages

Recently, you have to take into account the proximity to other villages. Existing villages cannot be built, but if you are nearby you won’t have to travel too far. The villages are filled with vendors and potential villagers to recruit to join you. Moreover, you can sell goods here to earn money. If you don’t have a mount yet, traveling between villages can be a long process; especially if you are transporting heavy materials that require separate trips.

Gostovia is a great village to have nearby, but be sure to check out the other villages as well. Each village specializes in a certain type of production, ranging from animal husbandry to mining.

Here are in this image (above) the best locations we recommend to build your first village. All of these places have a sufficient amount of resources available and are not too far from a city.

Move your village

After establishing your village, you may want to move it. It’s a tedious process, but it is possible. Using your hammer, you can destroy any building, path or decoration.

Keep in mind that if you destroy a villager’s house, their mood will drop. If their mood gets too low, the villager can leave your village and move elsewhere. It is best to create another village area before deciding to destroy existing structures.
