This week we will be looking at CaveTech (TM, not really). CaveTech is the general term given to things that your tribe can develop to better hunt Mammoths. Through these advancements your cavemen and cavewomen will be able to harvest more meat than ever before. All it takes is a modest amount of Meat Points and a big brain.
This week we have three advancements that your tribe can purchase for Meat Points. These are all Level 1 CaveTech upgrades, meaning that your tribe also must be a Level 1 CaveSociety in order to use this technology.
There are several types of CaveTech: Personal Tools, Tribal Tools, and Brain Tools.
Personal Tools are purchased for one Caveman alone. You can purchase as many Personal Tools as you like provided they are not unique. However, you must purchase Personal Tools individually.
Tribal Tools are purchased for your whole tribe. Once you have purchased them all cavemen and cavewomen in your tribe are now equipped with the Tribal Tool. Some Tribal Tools are labelled as Tribal Tool (Caveman) or Tribal Tool (Cavewoman). This means that only Cavemen or Cavewomen can be equipped with these tools.
Brain Tools are used to develop your Cavemen's or Cavewomen's brains. They apply to the tribe as a whole and are necessary for furthering your CaveTech levels.
