Game Description

Settlement is the first game developed by S. J. Vellenga. It is an attempt to bring the classic RTS (Real-Time Strategy) genre into the clicking world by allowing players to control resource production through micro management, settlement management and expansion, trade, and eventually, combat.
The game has since been abandoned to make way for a PHP based multiplayer version of the game, allowing for playing anywhere and player interaction including combat and trade. The original game is still available, but it will no longer be updated.

Development
Development started in early 2014, with the first prototype being released around May of the same year. It was intended for early alpha testers only, and was received fairly well. After a fair amount of feedback, the game was overhauled, providing a new interface for players to interact with, and a better gaming experience. The previous split list system, providing a separated list of workers and buildings, was scrapped in favor of the new combined list system.
The project was again overhauled several months later to provide yet another change in the way users interacted with the game. The combined list was adjusted yet again, allowing for buildings to be stacked. Buildings could then be upgraded from an earlier level to the next tier, saving both space and time searching for these upgrades. The trade system was introduced around this time, allowing for players to expand from their settlements and find new locations with richer resources and trade between them.

Mechanics
The game revolves mostly around the production of resources. Early resources, such as logs, can then be processed further into planks, which can be used to produce more complex buildings. Some resources, such as coal, tin and copper, can be combined to create complex resources like bronze. As the game progresses, the list grows longer.
Ages take a major role in determining the current place in the game. There are currently nine ages accessible, ranging from nomads to space age, though more are planned. Each age will unlock a number of new resources, workers, buildings, and more.
Settlement locations provide a way of limiting the number of resources a player actively has access to. Some resources, such as food, stone, and logs, are available in every location (as they are vital to progression), while others, such as iron or uranium, are strictly limited by location. Furthermore, resources can have low or high production rates, giving the player the choice of taking a smaller deposit in favor of convenience.

Future
The future of the game is bright, with the developer actively working on new content and updates. It has been announced that new features including disease and disasters are on their way, and will be implemented as an optional gameplay element, meaning that each new game can be tailored to suit the experience of the player. Further additions, such as automated trade, a NG+ (new game plus) system, combat, and more, have also been announced, but a release window for these have not yet been published.

Civ Builder, ClickerThis game provides the ability to create a civilisation from the ground up. You are required to provide your population with basic resources, housing, advanced buildings, upgrades, and more. The ultimatum to the game is to build a wonder, and worship a god, then to start over, attempting to gain the effects of all the wonders together.ResourcesThere are a number of resources available to use.FoodWoodStoneSkinsHerbsOreLeatherPietyMetalGoldFood, wood, and stone are the basic building blocks of CivClicker. They allow buildings to be constructed and workers to be fed. These resources can either be manually collected by clicking or automatically collected by hiring workers to do so. It is a balance however, to ensure that workers have enough food to continue to work on the jobs that they are assigned without dying.Skins, herbs, and ore are randomly collected when gathering the above resources. They have a chance of being found, which can be upgraded later, and are used for more advanced things. Some are spent on higher tier buildings, while others are used for upgrades. Skins and ore, for example, can be converted into leather and metal by the appropriate workers and used on even higher tier purchases.Piety works a little differently, and is gathered by worshipping gods. Piety can be used for a number of upgrades and for constructing wonders (where all resources are required). All resources are intertwined to ensure that a careful balance is required amongst all of them to make the civilisation grow.Gold cannot be collected normally, and must be gathered through the use of the trade system. Traders will randomly arrive asking for a certain resource and will reward you 1 gold per transaction. They only remain for a short time, so gold is very scarce early game. It can, however, be used to speed up wonder construction, drastically reducing the amount of time it would normally take to build one.SicknessWorkers can get sick, and unfortunately, sick workers don't work. They can be healed, however, by using apothecaries and herbs. Each apothecary heals a number of workers per second, assuming that enough herbs are present. If workers remain sick, they can start to cause a problem, as the infection can spread and remove workers from harvesting food. If this happens, food production can dip, and the population are quickly starving to death.Dead bodies, if not quickly taken care of through the use of cemetaries, can quickly become a problem. Sickness can spread, and the population will quickly get angry, lowering their production.CombatSoldiers can be hired by providing them with the appropriate resources. Note that soldiers still consume food, and should still be considered when calculating food requirements. Soldiers can either be stationed in the civilisation or in the army. Their location affects how they affect the game.Soldiers in the city will defend against attacks. This includes wolves and barbarians.Soldiers assigned to the army will not defend against raids. These soldiers can only be used in raids against other civilisations. Raids can return happiness to your people or even a stash of resources. Note that siege engines cannot be moved out of the army.External LinksFAQWikiSubreddit
