Clanfolk Update 9: New Idea Points

Clanfolk Update 9
Clanfolk Update 9 Steam

Clanfolk received a major update focused on Idea Points, a new optional upgrade that aims to promote strategic planning. The highlights of the update are the generation of idea points and ideas panel upgrade.

Generating Idea Points

Players can generate Idea Points by completing tasks with an attached skill or that consume or produce a resource. Idea Points encourages job specialization because the higher the skill of the worker, the higher the Idea Point is generated. However, there are certain jobs that do not generate Idea Points. The bottom line is both the task and related skill contribute in the generation of these points.

Ideas Panel Upgrade

The Idea Points mode now shows a slightly different Ideas Panel. Players can see everything this time, including costs, to guide them on how to spend their Idea Points. A thought bubble on the Idea becomes golden when an Idea is available to notify players that this is unlockable with Idea Points.
