All villages will have access to special projects that they can work towards as a community. These projects are challenging and difficult to obtain, but grant special permanent rewards for the village.
In total, there are 19 projects to improve the Village. The projects include 4 types of gathering node improvements, 4 to build and improve crafting stations. The improvements are available to all village members whether they are using a crafting station in the village or in the open world. There are also several projects for appearances (Statues, Empyrian Machine, Arboretum, Soilworks), and projects for conveniences (Vault, Training Grounds). A special repeatable project - Wellspring - grants all village members a buff that lasts a few days each time it is completed.
Projects are improved every time they rank up, and projects rank up when enough materials are donated to it via daily tasks.

Once Rank I is achieved, crafting stations become available to use in the village.

Daily Tasks[edit | edit source]
The project daily can be accessed upon clicking on any active project board in the village and selecting the Task tab. This tab has a blue bar, which represents the progress of the daily. The blue bar resets every 23 hours and upon resetting it will donate as many points as was completed to the appropriate project.
Each day, the project will ask for one type of gathered or crafted item (Fruit, Wood, Mushrooms, Beetles, Silkworms, Ore, Meat Fish, Oil Fish, Pelts, Timber, Ingots, Oils, Cloth, Leather, Ham, Eggs) and gold. The types of items requested varies by the project. There is a limit for each item and each tier.
The daily task contributes a maximum of 1,000,000 points towards the next rank, if 100% of the requested items are donated, however the optimum completion for each daily task is between 15% (300,000 points) and 25% (500,000 points), as the first 5% and the last 50% contributed are scaled down.
Use the Tomorrow button beneath the bar to prepare for the next assortment of items.
