Plantation

Note: The Plantation cannot be built until you have a level 3 Farm (or three level 1 Farms, or another equivalent) and have finished the research in the University.


The Plantation is where the Planter will grow either sugar cane, bamboo, or cactus.

The Plantation’s level determines how many crops the Planter can plant at a time.

Plantation Level Crops Grown
1 4
2 8
3 12
4 16
5 20

The Planter can also craft paper, books, sugar, and anything made with bamboo. The Planter will only make these items when they have been taught the recipes, receive a request for an item, and have the needed materials.

Note: The Planter can only learn a certain amount of recipes per their hut level.

Building Level Number of Recipes
1 10
2 20
3 40
4 80
5 160

Plantation GUI

Image

When accessing the Plantation hut block by right-clicking on it, you will see a GUI with different options. You start on the main tab:

  • Pencil: Allows you to rename the building. The level of the building will always be listed after the name.

  • Hut Level: Tells you the type of hut and the build level of the building you have selected.

  • Assigned Workers: Tells you the worker assigned to this building.

  • Manage Workers: Lets you change which worker is assigned to work at this hut. There can only be one worker at each hut. Note: this only works if you have turned the worker hiring mode in the Town Hall block to manual, otherwise your citizens will be hired automatically.

  • Recall Worker: Recalls the worker at this building to their hut block. You might use it if they are stuck somewhere, you want to see what they have, or want to give them something directly.

  • Build Options: Lets you create a build, upgrade, or repair build order for this hut. To learn more about the building system, please visit the Builder page.

  • Pickup Priority: You can set the priority that a Courier will visit this hut and pick up items (when the worker at this hut issues a request), or you can tell Couriers to never visit this hut to pick up items. You can also tell a Courier to do a pickup now using the Request Pickup Now button. (For the pickup priority, 10 is the highest.)

  • Inventory: Here you can access the hut block’s storage, where the worker at this hut takes and deposits materials. They will also use any racks that were placed in the hut when it was built or upgraded, so be sure to check those as well!

  • ?: Some huts have an in-game guide. Press the ? button to access it.

  • A chest icon: Click this button to see all the items in the hut’s storage (including the hut block’s inventory and any racks that came with the hut). Clicking the ? button next to an item’s count will highlight the storage container it’s in.

The second tab of the GUI is Crafting Recipes.

Here you can see all the crafting recipes this hut knows. The arrows allow you to move them up or down in priority. You are also able to disable specific recipes.<p> Teach Recipe: When clicking teach recipe, it opens a crafting grid which allows you to teach this hut recipes (not the worker).</p>

The third tab of the GUI is Tasks.

This tab shows you any requests the hut is working on, and where it is going.

The fourth tab of the GUI is Settings.

  • Crops: You can select the plant you want the Planter to grow. Just click the button to cycle through sugar cane, bamboo, or cactus. Note: If you have completed the Double Trouble research in the University (which lets the Planter plant two crops at a time), this button will also show options for two crops.

  • Recipe Mode: This is unlocked by researching Warehouse Master in the University. This allows you to change the order the hut chooses when it knows more than one recipe for an item.

    • Priority: This is the default setting. The hut will try to use the recipe that is higher up in their recipe list first.

    • Warehouse Stock: The hut will look in the warehouse first to see what resource you have more of before deciding what recipe it will use.
