"Medium level dwelling for the colonists. Colonists provide gold and workers for the colony."
Tips & Strategy Edit
- Much more space efficient than the Tent, but not as space efficient as its upgrade, the Stone House.
- They are 50% less energy efficient than a tent, and pay off the gold invested in them about 50% less quickly. However, they are more food efficient than tents, producing more gold income per unit of food which somewhat makes up for the reduced energy efficiency. Combined with their space efficiency, this tends to make them very attractive investments - particularly once influenced by a Market.
- A Bank is more efficient at generating income when there are cottages in their influence than they are when there are tents. A bank influencing two tents increases income by 4, but a bank influencing a single cottage increases income by 5.
