Voice of Tavos – Now with some puzzles

Hear ye, hear ye – there’s news in town!

Voice of Tavos has all the latest news for you! Did you find some Ore or Coal? Want to help with the construction of our new Silver Mines in the North? We have just the guide for you.

And if you fancy joining our brave soldiers as a Swordsman or Guard, stay tuned for our article series on the military.

This new edition of Voice of Tavos also includes two puzzles – as every serious news outlet has.

Do you have questions? Ask the editors or our team in the comments below and we’ll try to find the answer for you.

On March 12th we released episode two of our Meet the Team video series. As Senior Lead Environment Artist, Casper and his team are responsible for aligning art and game design.

With the food and animal system covered, it was time to get dirty:

Over the last few weeks we published details about the mines in The Settlers.

The Coal and Ore Mine are the backbone of our weapons industry, while the Silver and Gold Mine help us to not only motivate our soldiers but also attract new settlers.

An important figure when talking about mines of course is the Geologist. This time they even get their own hut, to take a break after searching for underground deposits.

Finally, we started April with a community vote: The Residence needed a renaming to better reflect its function in the game. The results were very clear: Cookhouse ended up being your favorite and will be the new (English) name for the building formerly known as “Residence”.

So, what can you expect in the coming weeks?

Well, we will start off with the Smelting Works introduction next week which provides the basis for the next big topic on the The Settlers Alliance: The military!

We will go over the different buildings producing military equipment, our soldiers’ training facilities, the fortifications, military leaders and more. There’s lots to cover, so stay tuned!

To prevent your brains from rusting and help you pass the time, this Voice of Tavos includes two puzzles for you!

In the below word puzzle we hid 21 terms from The Settlers – can you find them all?

Oh dear, someone mixed up the dates and dressed for casual Friday on a Thursday! Can you find him awkwardly standing there, ashamed over his fashion mishap?

Is there anything you’d like to see in the future? Did you find the poor guy in the picture above? Are there any good recipes you want to share with your fellow settlers?

Don’t hesitate and send us all the details!

Also, don’t forget to post your questions for Voice of Tavos below our upcoming articles!

[Com] Community Update #5 – TSA Update, GC Coverage & First Stream

Hello everyone, welcome to Community Update number 5!

This one will be very “gamescom-colored” with an updated media section on The Settlers Alliance, impressions from our community members of this year’s gamescom and our first The Settlers live streams.

Our redesign of the website already happened a little while ago, but we used gamescom 2019 as a reason to add several more screenshots and concept art as well as the new trailer to our media section.

You can now also find a pre-order section on the top of the page, showing you the different editions of The Settlers and their content which can now be pre-ordered in the Ubisoft Store.

You have probably already read our detailed recap of gamescom 2019 where we shared some impressions of the convention and gave you an overview over what we presented in the Ubisoft Lounge.

But in this community update we instead want to feature the impressions and feedback from some of you guys, our community members, who visited us at gamescom, including our three Ubisoft Star Players.

Let’s start with Steinwallen, who summarized his impressions from gamescom in a massive 25min video. (German)

DerSpender recorded his own preview for The Settlers with new gameplay scenes. (German)

Patrick of the Zocker Lounge not only managed to snatch Creative Director Volker Wertich for an interview but also published his first preview video – while promising more. (German)

Our third Star Player, Aliestor, has just put out his own impressions of The Settlers, while previously covering his gamescom experience in several videos. (English)

Arekkz Gaming also summarized his impressions in an 8min preview. (English)

And finally, quaz9 was able to play The Settlers at gamescom and gives you an overview over what he has experienced. (Polish)

Finally, just about a week ago, we not only celebrated the first anniversary of The Settlers Alliance but also the very first The Settlers live stream. If you missed the stream or want to watch it again (we can’t blame you), you can find the VOD here:

 

And we can already tell you: this definitely wasn’t the last livestream, more are already planned.

We also want to again point out there are some fantastic websites for additional maps for multiplayer and singleplayer fans of the The Settlers History Collection.

Check out Siedelwood for The Settlers 5 & 6 and the Mapsource for The Settlers 3 to 6.

Stay tuned for more blogs and details to come soon and share your feedback with us here on The Settlers Alliance or via our social channels.

And if you got an amazing community project you want to introduce to us, are working on magical The Settlers videos or creating some really cool new maps for any of the The Settlers games then mail us at thesettlers-community@ubisoft.com and we’ll feature you in our next blog.
