Composter’s Hut

Composter's Hut



Welcome to the Composter’s Information Site.

Before you choose a place to build it’s Hut, take into account the distances among the other buildings and obstacles like water, trees, caves, mountains, lava sources, etc. After you have selected a place for the Hut, you have to craft the Composter’s Hut block and place it with your Building Tool. Once the hut is placed, the Composter will be automatically assigned (or you can manually assign one with the best Traits for Composter if you changed this in the setting tab in the Town Hall’s GUI.

Now you will have to issue the “Build” assignment so it can build the “composter Hut”. Once the builder is done you can now hire the Composter.

Note: Once the builder is done you will have to go to page 2 of the hut GUI and “define a list of items to be composted”. All recognized items (even modded items) will be listed there. You will have to select from that list what you want the composter to use to make compost or dirt.

Hint: You will want to upgrade the Composter to get all the awesome perks it has to offer for higher levels. The higher the level of the Hut the more Barrels the Composter will be able to use. So:

Building Level Barrel(s)
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5


When accessing the Composter’s Hut block (right clicking on it), you will see a GUI with different options:

Composter GUI

The Worker assigned and it's Level. (The worker levels up in time by working. The higher the level the faster and more efficient it will be). And the buttons:

  • Manage Worker: Hire and Fire workers, if you think you have a better citizen for the job with better skills or traits.
  • Recall Worker: If the worker gets stuck somewhere, or you just want to see what the worker has or give them something directly.
  • Build Options: To create the build/upgrade/relocation/repair work order for this building.
  • Delivery Priority: Automatic or Static option to set priority that the deilveryman will deliver requested items. (1/10 is the lowest priority and 10/10 is the highest priority)
  • List of Recipes: Lists the recipes that you have taught to this worker's hut.
  • Teach Recipe: Opens a 2x2 or 3x3 crafting grid or which allows you to teach this hut recipes, which the currently assigned worker will use to craft items that they require.
  • Inventory: This is the most important button. Here you can access the buildings storage from where the worker takes and deposits materials, tools and anything they find along the way (citizens will pickup anything in their path that is considered a drop; saplings, seeds, rotten flesh, bones, arrows, etc.).

By pressing the arrow button in the top right corner of the GUI, you will be taken to page 2 of the GUI where you will find the following:
