Pioneer Trail: Debris Spawner and Railroad coming soon

This week has been a pretty great one for news in the Pioneer Trail, but not just about new feature news; rather, news about things that are being worked on in the background or will eventually launch in the game. Over on the game's official forums, Community Manager Stumpgrinder has given users a heads-up to upcoming events.

First and foremost, if you've ever needed to clear 10 Skulls, Cacti or Rocks for a goal, but don't have the collectibles to earn them for free, or simply don't have enough room on your Homestead for them to grow naturally (let's be honest, that happens a lot), we'll soon be able to spawn our own debris right when we need it, thanks to the Debris Spawner. This will be a building project that can be upgraded, giving out more debris for each upgrade. The name "Debris Spawner" isn't final, so if you'd like to help Zynga come up with a better one, you're encouraged to do so.

In other news, we also know that a Railroad will be coming to the left side of our Homesteads, but the use for such a thing is as-of-this-writing unknown. In addition, more buildings will be launching in the game's Emporium line, so if you still want to store more buildings than are currently possible, know that Zynga's still working on allowing you to do just that. In fact, we'll see buildings released that can be used to store entire themes of buildings (perhaps storing all animal buildings inside one massive barn?).

Either way, we'll stay on top of things as usual, and will let you know when any of these features start to roll out in full in the game. In the meantime, just try to keep your head above water (in terms of the game's goals), until things hopefully get better.

Are you looking forward to these new features? Which one do you think will be your favorite? Sound off in the comments.
