I’ve seen a lot of people confused about some of Timberborn’s mechanics and systems, so I figured I’d create a guide to help dispel some of that confusion.
Beginners Tips and Tricks
So, You Just Got Timberborn…
For those who are just starting out, there’s a lot to digest and a lot of easy traps to fall into.
Common Questions (FAQ)
How do I get my beavers to build what I want them to build?
Beavers build things in the order you place them down. Even if you don’t have enough resources for the structure, they will deliver all of the resources they can to that structure before they move on to the next structure to build. As such, you can force your builders to work on a structure you placed down later by pausing or deleting the structures you placed down before the one you want to prioritize.
If you have multiple Builder’s Huts or Builder’s Flags, each one will work on the earliest thing they can reach.
Why does my building site say that it can’t get all of its required resources?
There are three things that need to be in range of a building site before it can be completed: a builder to work on it, a Log Pile to supply logs, and a warehouse to supply any planks, gears, or metal the structure needs. If you are seeing that message, check the nearest Log Piles to see if they are in range of the site, then look for a nearby warehouse. If both of those things are in place, you simply need to wait for haulers to move the planks, gears, or metal into the warehouse for the builders to use.
I have jobless beavers and buildings that need workers. What’s going on?
A beaver has to live within range of a job in order to work at the job. Build a Lodge near the job site and the problem should go away. If you can’t afford to build a Lodge right away but you have homeless beavers, you can try deleting some Sleeping Mats; the homeless beavers may build their new Sleeping Mat closer to the job site.
My farmers won’t harvest my crops. What’s going on?
All of the warehouses within range are full. Build another warehouse and they’ll get back to work.
My farmers don’t replant until they are done harvesting everything. How do I get them to replant as they go?
Set at least one of the Farmhouses to prioritize planting. Those beavers will plant the empty plots before moving on to harvesting.
My Water Wheel isn’t working. What’s wrong?
Water Wheels require a minimum amount of current before they will turn. If it isn’t the dry season and this Water Wheel was previously working just fine, you may now be pumping enough water out of the river to drop the current or new Dams or Levees may have altered the way water is flowing through the river.
What is the difference between a Dam and a Levee?
The difference is in how water overflows each. A Dam will let water flow past once the water level reaches just below the top of the Dam, while a Levee will hold water back until the water level rises above the top of the Levee. When building a dam across a canyon to create a reservoir, only the topmost layer should be made of Dams. All other segments should be Levees.
How do I release water from a reservoir?
Currently, the only way to release water from a reservoir is to delete sections of the dam. Start from the top most level and delete each layer only when the last is done flowing out in order to prevent flooding or wasting water.
