If it is raining, snowing, nighttime, or a citizen died yesterday (in-game time), your citizens will stop working!
When hiring a worker at a hut, the primary trait used in that work will be highlighted in green and the secondary trait in yellow to help you decide which citizen is the best worker for the job. The higher a worker’s skill, the faster and more efficient they will be. Each trait also has a specific bonus for the job. To see these bonuses, please visit the worker pages.
Workers’ skills increase as they work. They are limited by the level of the worker’s home. The level of a worker’s work hut and their Intelligence skill level affect the speed that they level up.
