What Does ‘Village Too Crowded Mean in LEGO Fortnite? Explained

You’ll see new and interesting Villagers arrive in your Village Center each day in LEGO Fortnite. Unfortunately, you can’t invite all of them to live in your Village, no matter how much you upgrade it. Once you’ve maxed out your population, you’ll receive a “Village Too Crowded” message when inviting someone new. This will happen if you don’t have any open Villager spaces. You can check how many spaces you have available by visiting your Village Center.

You can have a total of five Villagers per Village Center. You’ll make room for more villagers by upgrading your Village through levels 1, 3, 5, 8, and 10. You’ll need to upgrade your Center up to the maximum of level 10 to fit all five. You can do so by visiting your Village Center and interacting with it. I’ve written up a full guide on upgrading Villages here.

Making Room For More Villages Explained

After you’ve maxed out a village, you may be wondering if you can have multiple Villages in one world. The short answer is yes, you can create multiple Villages in LEGO Fortnite. However, the only way to do so is by setting up each Village far away from each other.

To make the most of this limitation, I recommend you set up a Village near the border of each biome. This way, you have a nearby home base to return to, should anything go sideways.

To make sure they’re far enough away from each other, you’ll want to travel far away enough so that you can’t see the other Village’s campfire smoke. Then, you’ll have an easy, breezy time setting up another Village Center and making a home for more NPCs.
