Hints: (To Keep NPCs Happy)
As we’ve mentioned, to keep your NPCs happy, you should notice which biomes they like to live in. Sure, if you already know their lovely biome, you can try to make plenty of rooms, but not too close. You can create at least 25 tiles away from each other.
We think it’s better for you to only find two large trees in the forest to begin building the house base. The main room should be located in the bigger crown of the tree. For example, place a Nurse and Arms Dealer for your fast heal in the main room. Then, the second room is put in the second crown. Last, the third room is better placed between two trees.

- Make the theme based world, it means if a NPC is belonging to the jungle, ensure to make them living there.
- Collect all pylons to teleport around the world.
- Use the distance between your NPCs in order to use it to your advantage.
