  1. I would love if one could walk a little character around through the lil towns.

    Ooooor if it could be used as a map creator for other games! Like an fps.

  2. there should be DLC for different Cultures, I'd especially like it if you could make your town look Medieval European, Victorian, East Asian, Greek, Roman or Arabian

    maybe you could also have dirt roads, fields of crops, farms, Barns, and maybe people and livestock walking around town doing stuff, and it would also be REALLY be cool if you could walk around the town you created.

  3. You can make suspended brick towers by putting block on level 1 on a dial pad on 1-3-7-9 and on level 2 on 5. You ca reuse the same technic on a 5 star shape. If you remove the second level and a third level, you get the crane!

  4. Hey guys, y'all need to remember this game is only about a month into release, and its still in Early Access. Early is an understatement.

  5. Please let the developer add more features. I would love to have such a simple tool for my RPG maps. I'd pay triple to get RPG style options!

  6. Thank you! I am making a steam guide on this game (The definitive guide to townscaper, wip version public) and this video is very useful for the little details on stone walls.

  7. I noticed that now greenery can still spawn with an opening, if the openings are archways. And multiple archways facing each other can make pavements surrounded by greenery! And pavements crossing can make a roundabout with a statue in the middle!

    Do note that it only accepts the archway if there are building blocks vertically from it two, not just above and to the sides, the top part and the sides have to connect with actual blocks and not just generated connections. But if you already have multiple floors, then you can just put the hole in at ground level and it works. The pavements can be a bit finicky to line up correctly for it to actually work though. And there needs to be one block free space on both sides of the pavement I think.

    Didn't see this in video nor in comments, so here, enjoy.

  8. Thanks so much for sharing this! I bought it on whim and just clickety click to get rid of my stress. But this is super cool! I didn't know all these! I left this gem sleeping for 2 weeks?!

  9. This is the kind of game that was pretty obviously designed for the enjoyment of discovering the details by accident as you play, enjoying the experience of experimenting with your own ideas and the possibilities the game offers as your town unfolds naturally.

  10. The game is so incredible, it's so relaxing to be creative. I hope the game makes it big. It has so much potential. Finally a game that is relaxing – no shooting – no war – no competition.
    And fantastic animated graphics.

  11. Here's one I haven't seen anyone do…alternating colors on a tower gives you a cool lighthouse top. I discovered it using red and white, then experimented with red and green. Likely any two colors will work.

  12. i am considering spending $6 on this game so i can make a town that just consists of differently colored cock-and-ball-shaped buildings
