The city-building survival game called Frostpunk from 11 Bit Studios puts its players in charge of building a city in a frozen carter. When the players begin playing, the player has a collection of hungry, cold, homeless citizens who do not have food and shelter. In this frigid, brutal and uncaring world the players have to build up an outpost in the middle of nowhere. Thus to survive, they need to think longterm and also unlock new tech for a brighter future.
The article below this deal with some of the frostpunk tips that one should follow while they face an onslaught of crises that include an angry populace as well as dwindling resources.
Keep monitoring heat as it is a precious resource during the setting of an ice age. Buildings often cease production in case cold and medical facilities get a buckle if homes succumb to cold weather. Installing heaters in buildings or steam tubs give the players an additional layer of control for keeping the buildings warm. Also, optimization saves them a lot of coal so the players can turn off a few heating elements for preserving a stock in case of need.
Unlocking facility improvements such as bunkhouse, house, or steam upgrades to the resource gathering operations. Thus the players do not have to place them on a fresh plot of land. Building directly on top of the older building lets you re-use the resources that were used in the original construction.
The inhospitable world of Frostpunk enables the player to throw workers for addressing an urgent problem. They can be returned to their original duties after things are under control. Paying due care and attention to medical posts at all time lets the player transfer them to another job until the need arises to employ more doctors. Smart workforce management lets the player build more resource buildings than they need at the time.
The players should always make sure that they have enough resources to put the researchers immediately after their completion of various tasks. This is because workshops allow the players to research for new technologies that improve the efficiency of players. Improving hunting and exploring them the right way by transitioning to research the coal thumper, sawmill, as well as steelworks, lets the player scale up quickly.
Using coal thumper helps the players to produce more coal than the mines but they this also requires more workers for the operation. Upgrading thumper also requires increasing the number of gathering posts as well.
From forcing amputations to child labour to eventually declaring themselves as an untouchable supreme ruler, the players should enact the book of laws only when required. The players can add additional laws of emergency shift as well as the extended shift that pulls them out of the vortex when things get tough.
The player should replace them citizens who work for the sickbay with new workers for vital facilities such as coal operations. Idle workers who can be indicated on the population widget at the bottom right of the screen should be allotted a new home.
Rather than sitting comfortably against the storage cap, the players should continue the gathering operation unless they require workers somewhere else.
To ensure that new operation is built quickly, the players should place the new structures on the map before the workday gets over. In case the players are in a pinch for time, they can assign idle workers to construct projects during the day as well.
While designing the city, the buildings should be next to the other dwellings. This is because wasted space comes back to haunt them and in case the player leave gaps then cold can penetrate to the city that necessitates the addition of another steam core.
To bring some levity to your citizen’s life, the players should institute news laws that allow fighting houses, public houses, moonshine as well as brothels.
Establishing outposts from abandoned mines that have the chances of harvesting or reopening them for supplies act as lifesavers as they help to deliver supplies on a daily basis.
The players although require lumber for building as well as researching new tech but they can use it for generating charcoal that adds to the supply of coal for heat.
