EDIT: On November 14, 2019, Thicket and Vooch decided that our v3 (version three) for creating docks at New Festival Cove will be to remove 4 tiles from each of the docks at Northernmost border. We’re doing this to prevent large ships from decaying if they parked on the tip of one of the Northernmost docks. The v3 design will also improve safety by reducing the footprint. Vooch will upload the v3 design (currently, the v2 design is the pic above) at a future date.
Originally published August 2019:
New Festival Cove is embarking on an enormous project: creating docks in very deep water.
Creating a project like this requires a very, very large number of dirt and sand. We prefer sand because it can prevent marsh tiles from appearing in the water.
Marsh tiles require wooden boards to be placed upon them before any subsequent leveling can occur, so it’s best to drop sand in the water while expanding the dock area.
As you can see in the picture above, we’ve penciled in the areas where docks should appear in the game.
