Manor Lords update 0.7.975 patch notes: Faster livestock imports and loading

Find out what the latest update for the city-builder has in store
Slavic Magic / Hooded Horse

Slavic Magic is really turning up the speed with another Manor Lords update hitting the game’s main branch and becoming available for everyone to play. Update 0.7.975 improved how food and firewood carts operate, accelerated livestock import by reducing the distance merchants have to travel, and added another four handcarts to Tier 2 Storehouses for better transport. A chance the developer considers making is the introduction of handcart upgrades for buildings, allowing players to improve their transport capabilities themselves.

On the technical front, loading times should be improved in this patch and farming got some additional adjustments in terms of pathfinding and optimization.

Slavic Magic hopes that this update will provide enough stability to players for a while, so that he can return “into the ‘dev cave’ and do some more fun experiments and changes to push the game forward and finally add some new features.”
