Going Medieval Update 7 is upon us, and it's bringing overhauls to comfort, aesthetics, and more. Your settlers can look forward to owning their own beds for the first time, too, and resting in them will have more benefits than just making you feel better about your settlement.
A couple of weeks ago, Foxy Voxel gave us a look at the new Comfort and Aesthetic systems in Going Medieval Update 7, and now that the update is here, those systems have been implemented. Everything now has an Aesthetic value, and creating rooms and areas with good Aesthetics will have positive effects on your villagers' moods.
As well as this, your settlers can now own their own beds and rooms, and sleeping in those beds will provide a boost to the new Comfort stat, which in turn will offer mood boosts as well. The better the bed, the greater the Comfort stat, of course. If you don't assign rooms to villagers, they'll find rooms of their own volition.
Rooms now have an overall "Impressiveness" stat, which will affect the way your settlers feel. Settlers will gain boosts for doing things in rooms with high Impressiveness ratings, but they'll also be jealous of other settlers if they have less impressive rooms, or if the other settler has a room they don't have.
You'll also find a range of new furniture items and other things in Going Medieval Update 7. These include new bed types, as well as items like paintings, rugs, and rush matting, which can be produced in appropriate crafting buildings. Plenty of quality-of-life improvements and other changes have also been made, so make sure to check out the full patch notes on Steam to get an idea of what's changed.
Going Medieval is available right now on Steam, where it's in Early Access. It'll set you back $24.99. If you want to get the most out of your time with the game, be sure to check out our Going Medieval guides, where you'll find info on important systems from food storage to research and more.
