Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way for you to store extra energy and put it to later use? Well, that is one of the new quality-of-life features in the latest experimental update for Timberborn.

The Gravity Battery is a new building in Timberborn that allows you to store excess energy, which you can then use whenever your settlement reaches peak power consumption. The electric capacity of the Gravity Battery depends on its elevation or how high it is built above the ground.

In addition to the new building, the game’s latest experimental patch introduces a new tool called the Migration Panel. This thing allows you to control the population numbers of adult beavers, kits, and golems all in one place.

Some changes are implemented as well. The Water Jet is removed in favor of a new building called the Double Shower; this is a turbocharged version of the regular shower and can fit two beavers at a time. Moreover, medicines now only take an hour to make, and two units are produced for the price of one Dandelion.

Here are the other things implemented in this patch:
