Going Yell for Leather...

If there's one thing we know about the Frontier it was that they loved their leather... Coats, hats, boots, tools... The average Frontier homestead had more leather accoutrements than a Conservative politician's secret playroom.

Up until now our own fiddling with leather has been just a bit here and there but now it's time to get serious.

We're going to build ourselves something no self-respecting Frontier town would be without, a Leatherworks. In doing so we'll get the chance to create a few little leather items of our own and in return, get some boosts that I KNOW a lot of people have been crying out for.

To start we'll see the usual popup (one with a slightly over-excited Bess...)

From there we'll be prompted to place the Leatherworks, a four stage build (all details HERE) and start the leatherworks missions (all details HERE)

Onto the best part of the Leatherworks, what we're going to get out of it.

The leatherworks will let us craft a whole raft of new boosts. Speed increases, animal readys aaaand the piece de resistance... Bullwhips and Rawhide gloves.

The Bullwhips let us move Varmints on the homestead for an hour (sick of that Groundhog in the middle of your crops but don't want to clobber him? Hide him!) and the Rawhide gloves that let you move FULLY GROWN TREES!

Yes, you've asked for it, they've done it, you can now craft Rawhide gloves to spend an hour lofting large lumber round your homestead! (See, told you you'd be excited.)

You can see a full round up of boosts in our boosts guide post HERE.

We'll see one new crop that will drop an item for crafting the leather, Hide stations...

So what are you waiting for? Get crafting!
