How to Get More Families in Manor Lords

To attract families to settle in your domain in Manor Lords, you’ll need two key factors:

  • Approval Rating 50% or higher: A high approval rating, displayed by the thumbs-up icon on the top banner, signifies a happy and prosperous town.
  • Unclaimed Burgage Plots: Even the most enthusiastic families need a place to call home. Burgage Plots are designated areas where houses are built. Imagine families arriving during a downpour with nowhere to live. Not exactly ideal!

Build More Vacant Burgage Plots

Burgage Plots offer a flexible housing solution. You define the plot’s size by placing four points, allowing you to strategically fit houses around existing structures. Once placed, you can:

  • Rotate the plot to maximize the number of houses within the designated area.
  • Adjust the number of plots using the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons, ensuring optimal housing density.
  • Expand existing plots: Look for the house icon with a plus (+) sign within a plot. This indicates space for future expansion.

Remember, each plot requires 2 Timber to construct.

Get a High Approval Rating

A high approval rating isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s essential for attracting new families. Here’s how to keep your villagers content:

  • Monitor your Approval Rating: Check the thumbs-up icon on the top banner for a quick overview. Hover over it for a detailed breakdown of factors influencing your rating.
  • Fulfill Basic Needs: Each Level 1 Burgage Plot requires specific amenities:
    • Water Access: Build a nearby well.
    • Church: Ensure a church is within easy reach.
    • Fuel: Set up a Firewood Stall in the Marketplace.
    • Food: Have two Food Stalls in your Marketplace.
    • Clothing: Establish a Clothing Stall in your Marketplace.

A high approval rating goes beyond attracting new families. It also encourages existing families to grow, ensuring a steady stream of healthy male villagers for your military.

By following these steps, you’ll transform your manor from a fledgling settlement to a bustling medieval town brimming with happy families and a strong workforce. Remember, a thriving population is the cornerstone of success in Manor Lords.
