I am pretty new at the game, but am addicted. However, I am finding that even very late in the game, some of my cottages still "need to be worked to become hamlet/village/town." Since I am unsure how to actually do that (the other cottages grew nicely!) I am at a loss. Also, sometimes I have a nice town and am at a loss for things for my workers to work on, so when I hit automate, they start to tear down the town to put up a farm when the never-growing cottage is untouched. I just don't get it..... How do I get the cottage to grow? Secondly, is it really that big a deal to stop the workers from turning my town into a farm....I usually have tons of other farms nearby....or at least a windmill.....thank you in advance for your help.
