As you probably know, the big update was released a month or two ago. However, it was released in a rather incomplete state: You could only trade at NPC cities, not at settlement cities like planned. We’ve had these ready for a while, but saved it for winter break. Now that that’s here…
You can now apply to have your settlement become a settlement city! You can see the requirements by creating a new topic in the city apps category. While it is pretty costly to run a settlement city, players who are trading to level up will have to go to settlement cities to get their XP, and settlements will get some of the profit from it. Settlement members may also get some XP from people trading while they are online.
