In Going Medieval, learning how to build underground for tunnels and storage purposes is one of the keys to success. While this process might appear straightforward, there are actually several things you need to watch out for when digging underground. But when you do build underground successfully, you will see how important and great this option is. For one, it allows you to store your food and significantly slow down its rate of spoiling. This is because it is much cooler below ground and keeping your food in a cold environment is especially useful when it is hot outside. In this Going Medieval – How To Build Underground Tunnels & Storage guide, we will take you through this process and point out some beginner mistakes you should avoid making.
How To Build Underground Tunnels & Storage in Going Medieval
The first thing you need to do is to decide where you want to dig. After that, select your pickaxe icon in your lower right corner of the screen. Select which area you need your settlers to dig out. After they have mined the first layer down, be sure to build them a staircase so that they can climb back up and down. You can now dig another layer. If the area you are digging is wider than 3 tiles, you will also need to secure it with pillars. Otherwise, the entire thing will collapse. Now, surround this area with walls, give it a floor, a roof, and place a door directly in front of the staircase.
You can now use this room as your food storage area. To do this, go into the zone tab. Highlight this new underground room as your stockpile area. Select “food” and “carcass”, and also deselect “humans” under “carcass.” Go to your former storage area and deselect food. Your settlers will now only store the food in this underground area, preserving it for much longer during hot periods. We hope that our Going Medieval – How To Build Underground Tunnels & Storage guide has helped you with any questions you might have had concerning how to create rooms and storages below ground. Now your settlers can preserve food even during the summer.
