How to build
When placing a barn, you have the option to set an Item filter which allows you to choose what items are able to be placed inside the storage compartment.
- Select one of the 4 slots
- an UI will be shown center of your screen, where you can then select an item filter for the specific slot you have clicked.
- Note that the "item filter" area below the "storage" area is for the Output of the building, not for filtering the storage container.

- Additionally, barns can be upgraded to increase storage up to 1000 items.
- Barn can store 4 different types of items, but Silo can store only one type of item.
- Barn takes up 9 tiles of ground space while Silo takes up only a single tile.
