Here's where we squash Timberborn bugs and consider new features! 🐛

To make the process smooth please follow these rules:

🌳 Use English. The only allowed exception is described in the thread on in-game text and translations pinned below.
🌳 Before posting, check for duplicate suggestions by using "Search". If someone has already shared something similar, upvote and/or comment.
🌳 When reporting bugs, add any details that may help us reproduce the bug. Remember that you can attach image files to your suggestions.
