In this episode, the creative director, art director and design lead discuss different parcel types to be utilized in players' private Eternal Kingdoms and also for campaign worlds.   FULL STORY

I remember one siege during beta where the walls were (through sheer chance) going to trigger the upgrade from "construction" state right in the middle of a the match.  It added a really interesting t

Love the little bits of info. Resource gathering in the EK sounds like its 1 log at time whereas in the CW its 3000 at a time. There's more to it than that obviously, but just more info stating beyond quality being better in the CW that resource gathering in CW is more efficient as well.

I like the bleeding of resources from factories.  Gives another playstyle which is to go sabotage enemies' factories- I'll try to carry back the 3000 on my caravan with a bunch of friends, or go in alone and just chunk away the 3000 that sits there.

 

Edit: I understand factories not to have strict ownership, I'm speaking more like soft, frequent harvesters ownership

I really liked the talk about how traveling with materials via caravan is much more efficient than breaking the resource down and carrying it via individual characters. It should lead to some interesting caravan escorts vs. highwaymen gameplay.

We've heard a good deal about castle design, but what about construction speed?

 

This question is directed towards the CWs.

 

Are castles built instantly in their blueprint completed states?  Do they take time to build and suddenly appear in the world out of nowhere?  Do they take time to build and get a "under construction" appearance while they are still not completely built?

How Can Mounts Add to the Crowfall Experience?  Caravans, Hunting Boars, and more.

 

How Complex can Mining be in Crowfall?  Mining difficulty, fatigue, infrastructure.

Should lead to some hard choices as well. If about to be attacked and feel like you won't make it back to base do you risk it and try to fight them off might lose it all or break it down and divide the pieces and try to make run for it to at least get some of it back to base.

my guess is, that as long as you have the ressources, it'll probably build instantly...

 

but I agree... some info regarding build time would be nice. Maybe we'll see something like Archeage where you hammer the air a little bit before the building is constructed.

Arawulf,

You forgot the "Farmer" EK owner.

Farmers are:

  1. "Loyal Citizens" of their guildmaster's EK, who produce resources on their own EK for the guild  or
  2. "Travelling Merchants", who maintain resource parcels, a trade shop, and minimum buildings to provide CW buffs. These support independent (tax-free) trading.

Honestly, you are the type of person that is much to competitive, has zero compassion for other people and think you are better than everyone else. You likely love to troll people on a day to day bases to get others angry and laugh about it. You make playing any online game unfun for everyone else.  -Kuroaka

Blair confirmed that factories cannot be built in EK's.

JTC introduced Refineries, which can break down materials into resources with max efficiency. Refineries can be in your stronghold.

Building took time in SB, so I wouldn't be surprised if the same is true in CF.
