The resources you find on your land in Going Medieval are essential to building your settlement. At first, you only have to worry about wood and clay, but your villagers will not be satisfied with staying in this lifestyle forever. With enough research, they will discover more advanced methods for creating better buildings and facilities, and iron nuggets are a critical resource to keep an eye on.
It is much easier to find iron nuggets when you have a settlement in the mountains, but they also appear in the seeds of hills and valleys, but are less common. The source is a dark red color on the ground, and when you start the game, a small amount of iron may be available to your villagers in some of these places, which you can see jumping off the ground. Although, if you don’t see any iron above the ground, don’t worry; with a little digging near the limestone deposit, we reliably found the iron tucked underground. To do this, you have to mine, but most maps should have iron.
After you’ve accumulated enough iron, you want to make sure you’ve researched the smelting technology. It is immediately after the architecture and gives you access to the melting furnace. You will need to build one limestone, which is usually near or above the many iron deposits that we have managed to find. It will cost 70 limestone bricks and you can place them anywhere. To create 30 iron ingots, you need 30 iron nuggets and 20 fuels, which can be wood, sticks or coal. After you have it in the queue in the melting furnace, you must assign the villager by setting “blacksmithing” as a priority for them in the task menu.
