Hello all!
I absolutely love this game! However I am having a huge problem trying to figure out how to complete the quests. I know a move consist of switching between one screen to another but I can never complete the quest. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong? Also in the latest update I am not able to get one of my people out of the hospital am I the only one? Thanks!

To get ppl out of hospital, cast ressurrect from the shop screen.
The quest system is a bit off; don’t do the last quest—it’s still not fixed. Also, moves are taken when you switch screens and when sending ppl to tasks. Definitely make the following items/buildings: bell tower: warns you 10 moves ahead that something is about to happen; bicycle, makes your ppl’s tasks faster; 20 simple axes for chopping tress—gives 300 wood; 20 spears—gives 30 meat; town clock, makes time go faster. There are more, but I’ll just put those few.
Finally, completing quests/clearing disasters will get you mana which you can use to heal any in the hospital for 100, turn your stone into gold for 500 and cast creation for 10, which creates a random item.
I am still trying to figure out the barracks/gym/war system. Hope this has helped.

Hello blind.gamer83. I just wanted to tell you thank you for this post. It gives me some direction and helps me to plan better. I appreciate the tips.

I discovered the game
yesterday, so I haven't got very far yet. But there's something that has me confused. I created some shoes, and the medal screen tells me my people would be 10 or even more times faster. However, on the task screen the times that are needed for a task are the same, and the amount of items they get in one go is the same as well. So what is the bonus good for?

I was just wondering how do you make food and where can you find meat?
Also How do you increase your manner and how do you cast spells?

When you double-tap on your worker’s name, you’ll see a list of tasks. That’s where you’ll be able to forge for food and hunt. Once you’ve hunted, then you can make meat.
You get Mana by preventing disasters. At the top of your screen, you’ll see a list of items like people, inventory, Ann hospitals. There is another one in that list that I cannot remember because I don’t have the app on my phone anymore, but in that particular one is where you can cast spells.
I hope this helps.

Hey guys.
I was just wondering how do you obtain the ingreedients needed to make fish and chips e.g 1 baked potato and fish?
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Submitted by Lucretia M. Brown on Thursday, November 15, 2018

Everything you’ll need to make the items in the lists within the catagories at the bottom of the screen can be made from your tasks list when you click on your worker’s name. For example, you’ll have to go fishing and work the crop farm to make the Fish&Chips. In some cases you’ll need to go into your inventory list, to see if you have what you need.
I hope this helps.

Knight commander is by far the best game ever in my opinion! Instead of tasking person by person, I tend to use the chain gang approach this means that I send all of my players in at one time to do the same task doing it this way I’ve been able to get my warehouse up to 700,000, and I have 200 of almost all of my buildings or would it be more correct to say that I’ve leveled my building is up to 200? z

How do you know when to put your people to sleep?

Submitted by Laura on Saturday, March 28, 2020

Voiceover will tell you how much energy and time a character has, and you either have to feed your character or put them to sleep to regain it.

Submitted by Hilary Reed on Thursday, April 2, 2020

Hi. Me again. What is the healer task? I know that it requires a lot of energy and time, but to my knowledge, it has no sound effect. Also, thank you Laura for food and sleep. Thanks in advance.

Submitted by Laura on Thursday, April 2, 2020

If you go to the hospital tab, you’ll see the characters that need to be healed. It’s been a while since I had to do that, but you should see something that lets you know how much energy or currency you might need in order to heal your characters.

Submitted by Hilary Reed on Friday, April 3, 2020

Hi. Thanks again. One more question, at least for now. How do you get rubber tree? Is that an item that can only be created through creation magic?
Thanks again.

Submitted by Laura on Friday, April 3, 2020

You’re welcome. I believe you either need a crop farm or a fruit farm to get the rubber trees. Everything you get from those farms is randomized, so you may have to try a few times to get the resources you’re looking for.

Is anyone testing the latest beta? If so, do you know where to go to make a pistol? I think it used to be in weapons, but now it seems to be gone. Thanks.

Submitted by vue on Saturday, September 26, 2020

hello found a bug on fight. so when i click on fight and pick my front left it takes me to my villagers and when i click on one of them it will just freeze up and wont let me do anything. any idea ? oh btw how do i get plank and clay ?

Submitted by Skhye on Saturday, September 26, 2020

I can verify the fight bug. The game crashes when I try to start a fight.
In order to make planks you have to build a sawmill.
In order to make clay you need to make buckets of water and gather stone.

My thoughts on night commander so far.

  1. Navigating the top tabs is a bit of a pain. I have to swipe as elements I'm seeing when swiping are not there when I explore by touch.
  2. I can't choose individual people to do x y or z. It is either 1 or all.
  3. I cannot quickly choose all to do x y or z. See number 2. This applies to sleep, scavenging, hibernate, etc.
  4. The screens don't change for food, resources, etc. I have ti swipe through the top tabs. This makes the navigation of the app a bit hard to do at times depending on how far I need to go.

hi, ok just purchased the game, and when i start it, no music, or tutorial just thrown in to the game with 4 folk button. all buttons read but do have a clue what i am supposed to do, running iphone XR ios 14.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, October 5, 2020

hello. Do the first contract. It will say 0, but that is the number of contracts completed. A getting started tutorial would have been nice but I'm figuring it out as I go. On contract 15 and it's been 6 days.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Tuesday, November 10, 2020

I'm running the latest what ever that is. i didn't look at the app store before posting, sorry about that.

first, I sold all the items in my warehouse. Fine. that worked, but then I suddenly stopped hearing the noises of the yes, and will do, only the sounds when tasks were completed. I noticed this when the guys were at 100 or so energy. I then quit the app from the app switcher, but now when I launch the app, the game crashes. Did I find a bug or brake the game in any way?


update: after about 5 restarts of the game the crash went away. I still want to know if this was a fluke or a glitch somewhere that just happened to show up.

Submitted by Anthony R on Tuesday, November 17, 2020

I love this game. It's kept me entertained for hours. I do have a few questions. I understand all the items in the bonus screen, (which buildings give which bonuses,) but there are some things that I can't find a way to get bonuses for, but I think there must be a way to get them because I can see in the quests tab that there are tasks that require an insane amount of items to be made in very few turns. Mainly, "Make planks," and "cut stones to make blocks." Also, there doesn't seem to be a water-gathering bonus anymore. The simple axe and spears do not work anymore for getting extras for going hunting, or chopping down trees. Is there a sleep bonus? The sannitorium is more for the cooldown timer in the quick tasks, (such as doze and hibernate.) Speaking of buildings, what do the cage, shelter and shop do? I can't tell that they do anything at all, but perhaps I'm missing something. I've added several levels to the sawmill, but that's not one of the bonuses, so no matter what I do, I get 6 of plank per person. In the old game, each level of the water well would produce more water per character per turn. Here's an example of an impossible quest. 739 of diamond in 5 turns? In the old game, the library would help you produce more diamonds, but that's not the case with the new one. I'd really like some answers to these.
Thanks for any help with this.

Also, there is a bug.

1. sell all items in the warehouse.
2. notice that the yetis and other sounds disappear when this happens.

Solution: restart the app after closing it from the app switcher.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, December 10, 2020

Anyone notice that the crash is back, and back badly. I'm running what ever was released to the app store probably a few days ago, and when I soul everything in the warehouse, the app just crashed. I had to quit it as after I do that, I don't hear the sounds of the tasks being confirmed, only the sounds of the task being finished. I then minimized and tried to bring up the app, and it crashed. I closed the app from the switcher, and reopened it, or tried to, and it crashed. Can this be looked at?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Friday, December 11, 2020

So, I resolved it by dragging a saved game from the night before to my finder. Yes, I said dragging. those who are beta testing, please send your crash reports if you can get it to crash after selling all in the warehouse and restarting the game. I did give him my sis diag file but so far he cannot tell what's going on. Let's hope this can be fixed.
