    Hey guys, just wanted to mention that we have just released Towns V12

    This patch brings forth a unique feature, an archeology quest into the depth and the past of Towns The bury system.

    What is this system all about?
    The bury system is a feature that enables players to indirectly interact with each other by burying their town at any stage of their game and letting other players explore and conquer those buried towns.
    As a new player starts a game (any of the maps) the buried town from other player is "injected" into the dungeons and with a few become an integral and challenging part of the dungeon.

    How do I share or get other people buried map?
    Right now, the players will have to swap buried maps files between themselves manualy, but, in the near future we will implement a way to make that a seamless process thus further increasing the unexplored atmosphere of this feature.



    To ease the initial process we have gathered a bunch of buried towns, those can be obtained clicking here.


    Download this file and extract it in the 'bury' folder found in userFolder/.towns/bury/
    The folder should be automatically created when you launch the game for the first time after updating. As you start a new map, the game will randomly select one town from that folder and inject it to your newly formed dungeons.

    What else?
    Beside this bury system which is the main feature of this patch, we have also added two new heroes, The Herbalist which relies on his nature allies to assist him in battle and Vechs, the bird miner, a hero that also summon creatures to his assistance such as Fwap'a Durp, a bat that makes your townies happier as they see him.

    Cloth, sheep, wool and leather armors have been added as well, those should help the less tanky heroes survive in the deeper dungeons.

    We have added a mod loader feature that will allow player to easily load and unload mods and easily arrange them without affecting the vanilla game files.

    We have also added and improved many other things which can be found clicking here.

    We hope you will find this patch interesting and fun to play. As always, criticism and suggestions are more than welcome!

    I hope youve gotten over the hurdles with your main programmer?

    Well, Gambate! So far, the game is well worth the money ;D

    On that note, I think its been discussed before, but multiplayer is out of the question, right?

    Currently, yeah, its not something that will come any time soon, we view the bury system as a subtle form of multiplayer.

    Just wanted to let you all know, that Towns is still awesome, and they finally have day/night cycles in. THERE IS NOTHING MORE STANDING IN THE WAY OF A BEASTS & BUMPKINS MOD.

    Except maybe that there is no sex... care for some... NOOKIE?!
