Idle and Working Population
TODO describe each icon
When founding your first settlement some migrants will show up to help get your population up and running. These migrants will show up twice a year (in the spring and in the fall) as an event. If you have spare housing you will have the option to accept the migrants into your settlement as a free population. Once you have a total of 5 population the migrants will stop.
Growth and Food
Settlement populations will grow naturally as long as the settlement has enough food and spare housing. Different races have a different base rate, which is modified by the supply of food in the settlement. There are three levels of settlement hunger, and each has a different rate of population growth.
- Starving - Less than 1 food per population, no population growth.
- Hungry - Less than 2 food per population, population grows at half rate.
- Well Fed - At least 2 food per population, population grows at the full rate.
Food is produced by bakeries.
