It’s hard to think of a sandbox game without the ability to create and dwell in player structures, but until now that feature has been missing from Pathfinder Online. Fortunately, this will change with Update 4.0 on February 19th, which promises to bring in the first wave of temporary player structures that can be used to populate the world.
The structures will come in a variety of types, from the small campfire to the long-lasting smallhold. Each structure has both a cooldown (after which it can be deployed again) and a lifespan that it will exist on the main map. The larger structures, such as the base camps and smallholds, will need to be purchased from the game’s store.
Pathfinder’s last patch, Update 3.0, came out on February 4th.[Source: Pathfinder Online #1, #2]
