Patch v0.85.291.125 Steam

A new update for Settlement Survival is now available on the alpha branch. Patch v0.85.291.125 implements major changes to health and happiness in the game.

Health and happiness in Settlement Survival are important because they affect several things, including your citizens’ fertility rate, work efficiency, and their tendency to commit a crime, among others. The happier your citizens are, the more efficient they are at getting work done. In the early game, you can build a Church and a Clinic to make your citizens happy and healthy.

However, in Patch v0.85.291.125, the original ways of increasing/decreasing these values no longer apply to further game versions. Instead, several different sections are added to help you learn more about how to gain health and happiness bonuses. Furthermore, your citizens’ panels now show you happiness stats and health-related requirements - giving you ideas on how to improve their wellbeing.

Here are the other changes implemented in Patch v0.85.291.125:
