Settling in overseas, your Vikings can build some clever houses from turf to save wood but not even a simple storage building? That should be changed in the next version! Also, placing a clay pit at the beginning (for pit houses as first storage) feels wrong in this scenario. I even doubt there is much clay in the ground on Iceland.
Not much to say about modelmaking in this case. It’s similar to the turfhouses, just smaller and simplier, not very pretty but pretty useful. For now I made it in 2 variants and will add one or two more different styles. The building could also be used as a small dwelling or as workshop but a storehouse is more necessary I think.
Balancing is a bit tricky because with turf as imaginary resource it’s very cheap but should not be superior over all the other small storage buildings. In first test version, it has a rather small storage capacity of 1,200 on 3 x 4 tiles. That’s a poor area efficiency and whenever you can spare the wood, it’s worth building a proper storehouse. At least that’s the idea and I will adjust it after testing. Properties so far:
It’s now in early access page if you want to play around with some more turf. :)
