Intermediate Level : Village Layout Strategy
In this Forge of Empires wiki we will discuss the powerful way to layout your village. Usually In the start The main hall is always centered in map. This really restricts the possibilities to what you can build around it. The Strategy then is to move it using the move tool in the “Build Tab” to any other empty area inside the grid. I for example prefer to move the hall to the north corner to allow much more space for the next infrastructures and small or great buildings.
An important thing is that most of your great buildings will require a road to access to it. You’ll get notified if a building is poorly placed, an alert notification will appear above the building. The alert will instantly disappear one you move the building to a nearby road. You can also check if your building will need a road or not by the checking the “Needs” section. If it’s needed you will something like “Road required”. Keep in mind to check the needs of any thing you are trying to build in Forge of Empires. Some resources however doesn’t require any special needs.
