Population growth
« Topic Start: October 30, 2020, 02:03:18 AM »
So I have a region which is roughly at a third of its max population. Population does not increase no matter the region stats or food distribution numbers.
Is it a bug or are there hidden reasons for stagnant population?

What's the region? This is not nearly sufficient information to diagnose the cause of this.

Population only grows when things are safe and peaceful. Looks like Jorradith has had a rough time recently.

Yes, but it did not grow back when the stats were in top shape either.

I didn't say anything about stats. It needs peace.

I've been watching the region for a while.
There was a week-long peace from 29 to 22 days ago. Still nothing.
How long does it have to be at peace to start growing?

Doesn't look so peaceful to me.

IIRC, in order to be considered "peaceful", there have to be no battles, no looting, no monster/undead activity, for at least 1 full day.
