  • Skill points are used to claim perks.

  • The player gets to pick how they want to use their skill points.

How to purchase items for a house

1) Items can be purchased through the tablet.

2) Once the player enters a room and there needs to be furniture bought for that specific room, the task bar will let them know.

  • The player can also choose to click "buy many" if they are purchasing more than one (based on the number in the green box on the item of furniture) or just buy if they are purchasing a singular item.

How to improve the players' house
