Grow Song Of The Evertree Builder

Grow: Song of the Evertree is a sandbox game that really lets you take control of the world around you. Not only can you grow your very own world atop the Evertree, but you get to manage your own town. You won’t be going out to chop wood in the traditional sense, though, as everything in the game revolves around the alchemy system and collecting currency by building up your worlds and town. Our Grow: Song of the Evertree Building Tips Guide will help you get started!

How to Get Building Materials

You can put your hammer away; you won’t be building houses in the traditional sense. Instead, you will be using the essence you gather when performing alchemy on the resources you bring back from your various worlds. Every building type has an essence requirement that you will need to make to build it, along with the proper amount of currency. Luckily Myora is pretty easy to come by once you start growing your town and tending to your worlds each day.

For instance, you need tranquil and comforting essence to build a home, while a mill needs dry and soft essence. For the most part, it’s pretty easy to see what type of essence might go into a building. You will need to keep a stockpile of essence on hand to keep building. If you are having trouble finding an essence, then visit the Everkin village to see if they are selling it.

Grow: Song of The Evertree Housing

To have a successful town, you need people to live there, but this is easier said than done. As you begin to make your way through your first seed, you will notice an influx of visitors in your town. Building ten different houses just to house ten NPCS is a bit wasteful, so you will want to use tokens. Tokens can be found while your tending to your garden and will allow you to house several NPCS together at once.

  • Quick Tip: Try to build housing as the need arises and keep an eye on how many people are looking for a home. This will keep you from wasting essence and overbuilding.

Once you have a house built, you can apply the token through the management menu. You can also evict residents by hitting the delete button; if you want to move them to a new home or see an NPC, you want more wandering around your town.

At the center of town, you will also find a stone that tells you what you need to do to make your town better. Check-in with this stone regularly to see what area you need to focus your attention on next.

Expanding Your Build Area

As you play the game, the amount of area you have to build your town on is expanded at the start of the game; you only have the Meadow Quarters, but as you push back the thorny vines that have now overtaken the land. Each quarter you reclaim will allow you to expand your housing and earn even more Myora each day.

In addition to natural expansion by completing the story, you will notice areas with Everkin sprinkled around the map. These construction workers can be paid a small fee to move obstructions and give you more room to grow your town. Keep in mind that it will take them an in-game day to get rid of the obstacle after you pay them.
There are several buildings in the game, like the Inn you get at the beginning of the game. Many of these are unlocked by completing in-game tasks and then going to your book to claim the blueprints as a reward. These buildings also give your townsfolk a place to work and can help to generate even more revenue at the end of the day.

  • Quick Tip: You can move buildings around at any time in the build menu.

You will want to keep an eye on your land as it can be easy to run out of room in a town section when trying to build up your town quickly. You will also want to ensure that you are able to staff your buildings as well and aren’t overbuilding.

Placing Decorations and Customizing Your Buildings

You are also allowed to place decorations around the town, and these will be a big part of making your town look nice and keeping your residents happy. You can get decorations from tending to the plants on your seed. Most decorations can fit in small spaces, so using them to spruce up the gaps in between your buildings is a must.

  • Quick Tip: While paths and walls are mostly optional, they can help to make your town feel much more organized.

You are also allowed to customize all the buildings in your town. There are a variety of different materials you can use to customize your buildings like:

  • Roofing
  • Skirting
  • Wallpaper
  • Mailboxes
  • Pet Houses

It will cost you Myora when you customize a house, but generally, customization helps to make your town a much happier place.  Customizing is much cheaper than building, but the costs can add up if you are going on a decorating spree.
