Hello dear The Settlers community!
In order to summarize the function of the building again shortly:
They are occupied by up to 4 settlers (depending on the building’s level). These settlers go to market stalls where all the food ingredients, produced by the Hunter, Gatherer, the Farm etc, are offered. They bring these back to the building and prepare meals with the ingredients.
When they’ve finished cooking, they transport these meals to hungry workers to refill their stamina, e.g. a Woodcutter, a Miner etc.
A thing that we noticed based on previous playtests and player feedback was, that naming these buildings “residences” creates a wrong expectation as to the function they are fulfilling in your settlement and your economy.
We’re now planning to change the building’s name to something clearer, less confusing and closer to its function.
So now, we ask for your opinion: Given the function of the building, which name do you think fits best?
