Farthest Frontier: How to Flatten or Raise Land
Step 1: Select the Flatten Tool
To level land in Farthest Frontier, you need to use the Flatten Tool which will allow you to raise or flatten the terrain. You can select the tool by pressing the hotkey T or clicking on the Flatten Terrain icon located in the third position in the right-most bottom corner.
Hovering over the icon will show you if you are selecting the correct option.
Step 2: Select the Land to be Leveled and the Land You Want it to be Like
To use the Flatten Terrain tool properly you need a reference land according to which you will level the land. Here is the division of the parts for the lands you need to select:
- 2/3 or 60%+ of the selected land should be the reference or already leveled land.
- 1/3 or 40% (you can decrease this) is the amount of land that you are going to flatten or raise.
Note: These values aren’t written on stone, but you at least need to select more of the land that is already leveled.
Step 3: Wait for the Builders to Flatten the Land
You need builders to flatten the land in Farthest Frontier. You can increase the flattening by increasing the number of builders and prioritizing the flattening.
