Worker System

SleepRain, snow, nighttime, or if a citizen died yesterday (in-game time) will make your citizens stop working!

Workers’ Skill Levels

There is a system in place for how workers level up. The higher a worker’s level, the faster and more efficient they will be. The level of a worker’s home is what will put a limit on the worker level they can achieve. The level of a worker’s work hut determines the speed at which they level up, but their Intelligence skill is also a factor.

Home Level Max Worker Level
0 2
1 4
2 8
3 16
4 32
5 100

Tool/Sword Levels

There is also a system in place for the type of tools/swords the workers can use. This depends on the level of a worker’s work hut.

Work Hut Level Max (Vanilla) Tool/Sword Level Max (Tinker’s Construct) Tool/Sword Level
0 Wood or Gold (+ 0 enchantments) Mining level of Stone
1 Stone + 0 enchantments (OR wood/gold + 1 enchantment) Mining level of Iron
2 Iron + 0 enchantments (OR wood/gold + 2 enchantment OR stone + 1 enchantment) Mining level of Diamond
3 Diamond + 0 enchantments (OR wood/gold + 3 enchantments OR stone + 2 enchantments OR Iron + 1 enchantment) Mining level of Obsidian
4 All Tools + 0 enchantments (OR wood/gold + 4 enchants OR Stone + 3 enchants OR Iron + 2 enchants OR diamond + 1 enchant) Mining level of Cobalt
5 All Tools + unlimited enchantments Any mining level

Bow/Fishing Rod Levels

There is also a system in place for the type of bows and fishing rods workers can use. This also depends on the level of a worker’s work hut.

Work Hut Level Enchantments
0 0 enchantments
1 0 enchantments
2 1 enchantments
3 2 enchantments
4 3 enchantments
5 Unlimited enchantments

Guard Armor Levels

There is also a system in place for the type of armor Guards can use. This depends on the level of their Tower and the worker level of the Guard.

Type of Armor Guard Level Tower Level
Leather 0 - 20 1 - 3
Gold 0 - 20 1 - 4
Chain 0 - 20 2 - 5
Iron 5 - 30 3 - 5
Diamond 15 - 99 4 - 5

Traits

When hiring a worker, you will see the best traits for the worker to have in order for them to level up at a faster rate. The best traits for the job you are hiring for will be in green (primary) and yellow (secondary) to help you decide which is the best worker for that job.

Traits

There is a formula for this: Primary Trait * 2 + Secondary Trait * 1 = Rate of Leveling Up.

For example, if Adaptability is the primary trait and Athletics secondary, and the worker assigned has Adaptability 29 and Athletics 16, then (29x2)+(16x1)=74.

That means that this worker will be able to level up 74 times faster!


Here’s a chart of all the jobs and their traits, from sikri(#2346) on Discord.
