Starting a New Game:

Step 1:

When you click on New game, you will be given the name your settlement screen.  Give a name to your settlement and click confirm. If you already have a saved game with the same name as your new settlement, you will be asked to overwrite it before continuing.


 

Step 2: 

After confirming your name, you will be brought to a screen to choose the size of your map.

  • Small: Easy to play and defend, but less building space.
  • Medium: Easy to play and defend with a bit more building space.
  • Large: hard to play and defend in, but have a lot more building space.

 

Step 3:

After selecting a map size, you will be sent to a randomly generated World Map screen to choose a starting location. You can change the views of the world map between 2D and 3D. In 3D, you can scroll in and out with the mouse wheel. Right-click and hold to rotate the world map.

  • You can use the mouse controls along with the “WASD” keys (by Default) to move the camera and view the terrain.
  • If you like the map, click Settle Here. If you don’t, click Go Back to the World Map Selection screen.

 

Step 6:

When you click settle here, you will go to a Select Settling Point window. In this window, you are given a wagon to place on the map. If you don’t like the map, you can click Find New Location to go back to the world map to find a new area.

Step 7:

After you had placed the wagon, you will get a Position Chosen window. If you like the area you selected, you can hit start game. If you want to place it in another area or want to pick another map, click Go Back.

Step 8:

Finish! Now you can start your game with your new 8 settlers. Difficulty depends on the locations information and the generated maps terrain and size. Don’t forget that the max amount of settlers you can have at one time is 50. I hope your village can live long enough to tell its own stories of struggles and happiness. Good Luck!
