Today we thought it might be worth talking about the Abodes and different layers that you can build on. After reading through a couple of messages we received though our Support portal as well as over Facebook and Reddit, we thought it might a good idea to create a little guide to give you all a clearer picture.
OKAY, SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?When you get to a certain part of the game, you may notice that you can no longer build Abodes on high level ground (the dark green layer to be exact, or eleven layers above the first layer of grass to even more exact). Some believe that this could possibly be a bug – however, that’s not the case as you can build above the dark green layer!
BUT...HOW?Simples, but it will take a little bit of work to do – in fact, you’ll need to unlock the Mining Settlement and gather 30 ore to unlock the Stone Lodge. After you get past this point, you’ll be able to build to your heart’s content.
In Godus, there are many layers you can build on, but you may be asking yourself which Abodes goes where.
Starting off with the sand layer, your Followers will start off building Shelters
. Once you have reached a population of 10 you’ll unlock the Straw Hut
Abode and your Followers will start building this type of Abode instead of Shelters
. A bit later in the game, once you’ve unlocked the Farming Settlement and gathered 9 Wheat, you will unlock the Wooden Hut
and your Followers will start building these Abodes on the sand layer instead of Straw Huts
. This wraps up any Abodes for the sand layer.
Next up, the grass layer (or the light green layer
). Once you reach a population level of 27 you’ll unlock the Mud Hut
Abode and this will allow your Followers to make the transition from sand to grass. Upon reaching the 115 population level, you’ll unlock the Mud Cabins
– this Abode will really help in building up your population and in no time you’ll unlock the Farming Settlement. Once your Farmers have gathered 9 Wheat you’ll unlock the Wooden Hut
Abode and this will take over the Straw Hut
and Mud Hut
Abodes. Once you have gathered 24 Wheat you’ll unlock the Wooden Cabin
Abode and this will take over the Mud Cabin
Next up is the Wooden Lodge
Abode, which unlocks at 70 Wheat – this will immediately start to increase your population level. Once you have reached 900 population level, you’ll unlock the final Wooden Abode called Wooden Cottage
and this is the last Abode you can build on the grass layer. Once you have unlocked the Wooden Hut
, Wooden Cabin
, Wooden Lodge
and Wooden Cottage
, you’ll be able to use these from the first grass layer and ten layers above. Once you have reach the eleventh layer (dark green) above the first grass layer, you will no longer be able to progress with these Abodes.
At this point, you’ll need to unlock the Mining Settlement and gather 30 Ore to unlock the Stone Lodge
Abode, after 140 Ore you’ll unlock the Stone Cottage
Abode. Once these Abodes have been unlocked, you’ll be able to continue building past the dark green grass layer, up until you reach the snow layer (or the top white layer
). If you try to build these type of Abodes below the dark green grass layer, you’ll just end up building more Wooden Abodes.
That about wraps things up this guide. We hope you find it helpful and if you need any extra help, you are always welcome to drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
