I saw a forum asking about the noria so i made this guide. I hope this guide will give information about the noria and related benefits.
The Basics of the Noria
The noria is located in the farming menu, it needs three tiles of fresh water so the weel can be placed. It helps to plant crops in infertile soil, also it helps to create fountains that give water in a bigger radius.
The noria can help you plant crops in any place. But only if you have a water reserve nearby, the water helps the crops give you one more food per harvest.
The water also increases by one the happiness given by the gardens and they will look beautiful, this also requires a reserve nearby.
The Limits of the Noria
The noria, as you can see, has many benefits, but, what if you want to push it to the limits? Where are those limits? The limits for one noria are 25 waterways (if you consider the back of the noria as one waterway), but that limit is not in straight line. For example if you make a water hub, they also count as a limit, so for example having side water ways reduces the straight limit.
The noria can feed a bath house but feeding one will consume two waterway power, even if you put it in a corner (reducing the conection that you see in game).
The game says that we can use another noria to increase that limit, the increase is by 25 waterways so conect them and reach 50 blocks*
*Consider the one behind the weel.
Something interesting is that the water reserve can hold water even if the noria power couldnt feed a water way in that position (see images below).
Water! More Water!
The well and the fountain give water to your community, the radius given by fountains is two blocks larger, so you can replace your ugly wells with fountains and you will need a bit less to fill your town, also the big fountain has the same radius as the small one.
Thanks for reading the guide, i hope it helped you, dont forget to water your crops or they will look like this.
