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|
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|
When accessing the Plantation’s hut block by right-clicking on it, you will see a GUI with different options:
- Hut Level: Tells you the type of hut and the build level of the building you have selected.
- Worker Assigned: Tells you the worker assigned to this building and their worker level. The worker levels up in time by working. The higher their level, the faster and more efficient they will be.
- 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, reposition, or repair build order for this hut. To learn more about the building system, please visit the Builder page.
- Delivery Priority: You can set the priority that a Deliveryman will visit this hut and pick up items (when the worker at this hut issues a request), or you can tell Deliverymen to never visit this hut to pick up items. You can also tell a Deliveryman to do a pickup now using the Request Pickup Now button. (For the pickup priority, 10 is the highest.)
- List of Recipes and Teach Recipe: When clicking the list of recipes button, you see all the recipes you have taught this hut and can remove them. When clicking teach recipe, it opens a crafting grid which allows you to teach this hut recipes (not the worker).
- 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 or chests in the hut, so be sure to check those as well!
On page two of the GUI, 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 choose what will NOT be planted.
