Main / Skills / Paving


Paving is the skill needed to pave dirt, e.g. for creating roads, paving, laying the floor of your house, or simply for aesthetic pleasure.

It is possible to pave under water; for example to ease the exiting of a ship onto dry land, and again for aesthetic purposes. With Body strength higher than 21 you are able to pave a tile then dig it into water to completely submerge it.

Items required


Packing dirt is the first paving action required to add any type of pavement. Paving is then added to this packed dirt, except for floor boards, which may be laid on dirt or marsh. Activate the item you want to pave with then right-click the tile and choose Pave.

Higher paving skill and higher quality paving items give a faster completion timer.

Removing paving

Paved tiles may be cultivated back to dirt by equipping a shovel and choosing 'Destroy pavement'. Body strength of 20 and a digging skill of 10 is required for destroying pavement. Destroying pavement gives digging skill and the length of time it takes to remove the pavement is also based on this digging.

Diagonal paving

Selecting "Pave nearest corner" will pave half of the tile diagonally depending on the paving type being laid.

House floors

Paving is also used to build house floor plans. The minimum skill requirements are:

Skill Floor
21 Stone brick floor, Stone slab floor
25 Pottery brick floor
30 Slate slab floor
40 Marble slab floor

In addition, a certain level of paving is required to build these kinds of floor at a given height. The skill required is the same as listed on the table for Multi-story housing for the same floors... so 70 skill for 8th floor etc.
