    I get through winter easily, I just feel like it's the longest season. In my current game I'm around year 7 and don't have a farm yet. That's probably a good thing, though. Some of my winters have started in the middle of autumn and go to early spring. Trying to figure out how the market works. Every time I've used one it's destroyed my food supply.

    I always use markets, easier for the workers to get their supplies. The food question, I have 2 gatherer huts working fully with 4 people each, I'm up to almost 4k food with less than 30 people around year 8. The market works fine, as long as you have a steady food supply, the reason the food run out when you get a market is that the people don't have to walk as far to get food, so they get food faster and they get happier

    I've had 33 people by year four and then decided to put a market in. I had two gathering huts at the same time but it made my food supply almost stop completely. Maybe I'm just not using it right.

    I have about 70 people, and my food never goes under 10000. But, this was after like 4 tries trying to get it right. Food is the most important thing to get first, screw everything else. Im at like year 18 too

    I saw a guy who was on year 118 on the steam forums with 1000+ people. I get angry at how I place things early on and frequently restart.
