New World Town Projects Guide

Town Projects is a feature in New World that allows players to upgrade their settlements by participating in certain activities. In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at the three major types of New World Town Projects.

New World Town Projects

Below we’ve given detailed information about each major New World Town Project which you can take part in. Players are able to work together on these large-scale projects. These projects are started by either the Consuls or their Governor.

As you continue to build these tremendous tasks alongside your allies, you’ll be gathering a lot of resources, and accomplishing a variety of tasks.

To start the town project, you will need to interact with the Town Project Board. It is usually found near your settlement’s Town Hall building. Each project on the board takes 30 minutes to be refreshed.

So, it’s advised that you pick up the ones that you can finish easily while abandoning the difficult ones. Until you complete the ones that you have picked up, the board will be refreshed.

This strategy is good for completing town projects efficiently. Little by little, each project finished, will propel the development of your settlement.

A bonus for completing these projects is that you gain a lot of experience for leveling up. The benefits of completing these Town Projects also influence your PvE and PvP experience.

What do the Town Projects influence? The following is the list of settlements that are upgraded when completing these Projects:

  • Upgrade Settlement
  • Upgrade Fort
  • Improve Lifestyle

In finality, as your company improves the settlement, its rank will increase subsequently. The following are the names of your settlement and fort which will change in unison with its rank:

Rank Settlement Fort
Tier 1 Hamlet Fort
Tier 2 Village Bastion
Tier 3 Town Keep
Tier 4 City Castle
Tier 5 Capitol Citadel

Upgrade Settlement Projects

The Upgrade Settlement is a category that deals with Crafting and Refining Trade Skills in New World. Upgrading these stations allows you to experience a more refined quality of crafted items.

Each facility has its own tier level starting from 1 to 5. The efficiency and quality of the items produced is connected with the tier level.

Higher the tier level of the station, the better-quality items your settlement will produce.

Below is a list of Stations you can upgrade in New World:

  • Forge
  • Outfitting Station
  • Workshop
  • Arcane Repository
  • Kitchen
  • Woodshop
  • Tannery
  • Loom
  • Smelter
  • Stonecutting Table

Do keep in mind that these upgrades will become downgraded over time if not properly maintained. Additionally, wars and corrupted invasions have a huge impact on a settlement’s upgrades causing the specific settlement to be downgraded.

This forces the winning party to bear the responsibility and work hard for their newly conquered land.

Upgrade Fort Projects

Territory forts are the main source of defense for territory in New World. The Upgrade Fort category deals with the Territory Forts.

Upgrading certain elements of the fort gives you an opportunity to plant Siege Weapon emplacements around your fort.

Below we’ve listed down the fort elements you can upgrade in New World:

  • Gates
  • Emplacement Points
  • Repeaters
  • Burning Oil Vat
  • Warhorns
  • Explosives
  • Ballista

Your main focus should be upgrading Emplacement Points and Gates. As Emplacement Points provide additional placement for Siege Weapons around your fort while upgrading Gates protects your fort from taking more damage giving it an extended lifetime.

Note that the higher your fort’s tier, the harder it is for your opponents to break through the company’s influence. After a successful War declaration, higher-level settlements will have easier access to advanced defensive weaponry.

This will make it easier for the company to hold control over the territory.

Improve Lifestyle Projects

The Improve Lifestyle category activates multiple Lifestyle buffs which within the territory, grants you bonuses to Gathering, Crafting and Combat buffs.

However, one thing you should keep in mind is that upon completion, these buffs wear out after a certain period of time and require a re-initiation in case you’re looking forward to using the buffs again.

Another thing you should keep in mind is that these buffs only apply to the players who bought a property and are residents of the Settlement.
