    Building, terraforming

    So, I've read that we can raise and lower land as well as build roads.

    But one thing that isn't really gone over in too much detail is how building will work.

    Will the world be our canvass to build on? Will there be ways to claim ownership of land, and build walls and lock doors to protect valuables?

    We'll be able to rotate buildables?

    Other than that, really looking forward to release. This is the kind of game I've been waiting for for a long time.

    Plus I frequent the Tahoe region a lot! I already know where I'm going! B)

    Yes. Tribes can claim more land as they grow. Walls can be built to protect villages.

    We'll be able to rotate buildables?
    Yes. Walls can be rotated only to cardinal compass points and snap to a grid for proper alignment, while other buildings can be rotated freely.

    Xsyon, will we be able to lock and unlock houses and if yes, will we be able to burgle them?

    This is something still in development, so the short answer for now is 'no'.

    I hope we won't be able to build houses that look very modern. I think the shanty town theme going on in the screenshots at the moment.

    ModernISH houses should be available to master artisans in the structure building field.

    Building a nice house is a relatively easy task for someone well versed in carpentry. Gathering all the needed resources would be the hardest part.

    That being said we have no idea the extent of the buildings, so it's doesn't matter either way.

    And nice about the features. I'll need walls to protect my stuff!
