If you're referring to "new" from the perspective of quite a few patches prior to the game's official release where layers were completely cut off from one another and ladders were used to connect these effectively disconnected layers then I might be able to help you. In that instance the problem is that they kinda changed them to work/look more like stairs. You have to think of the world in the same sense as you would if playing Minecraft and as such build stair-like structures going down with "ladders."

If what you're asking is in reference to a change made in the most recent patch (though I don't remember seeing anything in the notes about ladders) then I can't help you there because I havn't played it yet.

Yeah i'm too used to playing the older versions of towns which just featured ladders that went straight down to other layers so it was alot easier to go underground and thanks for the help I have only just recently bought Towns on steam and started to play it again, just to stop playing it as I couldn't go underground and gather any stone,
Edit; forgot to say thanks for the help :)

You're welcome. Have fun, there's quite a bit of difference between the game as it is now and what you're used to i'd imagine.

how do i go underground without dying? Whenever i dig i land in the dungeon and most of my civilians die and then whenever they go down to get stone they just try to fight everything! Any tips?

In civ panel when you open it (the list where all townies are) in the upper right corner you can set to what level can townies go in the dungeon. WARNING, it works only for hauling items, but not for direct orders or if you craft something.

Another tip is to not send civ down there until it is safe. Use your heroes to clear the dungeon or guards

What i do is i dig a 3x3 hole, then next layer i dig a 2x3 and mine a 1x3 to keep a 3x3 hole, and so on. it makes a stair to level -2. If I dig over empty space, I use scarfolds to get down and put stone blocks. My townies are always set to explore a level higher than Heros do. But your townies should be able to fight at least the 2 first levels if you equip them with wood armor and stone hammers.
