Title: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: solarscreen on June 21, 2014, 09:15:27 AM
The challenge: Accept the nomads in your village and survive for one year. 

(THE MOST AT ONE TIME)

Screencaps of the nomads tab from your town hall and overview tab when you accept them and an overview screencap from one year later will be required.

The first champion will be announced July 15th and then anytime a successful challenge is posted after that a new champion will be crowned!

A wall of champions is currently being designed and will be accessible to all members and guests to see who our champions are!

Surviving for a year, isn't so hard, even with a large batch as it is doubtful the whole town would die off. Maybe there should be a percentage of population or something left to qualify as surviving?

I would also suggest pairing a screencap of the amount of Nomads that want in, along with the population graph right after you accept them.

Yes, a screencap of the overview before accepting the nomads, the nomads tab that shows how many want to join your village, and then the overview screencap from one year later.

 I have noticed that the higher your population, the more likely you are to see a larger number of Nomads. So @irrelevant with his large population and my map of Sanctuary and many others that have reached 1700 or higher would have both an option of accepting a large group and of dying rather quickly  :D. I would love to try it on my map of Sanctuary but am quite certain that accepting another +200 Nomads would send me into a very bad situation. Like no Sanctuary and no space for more graveyards.  :-[  ;D Oh well. Could always delete those dog-gone farms I suppose. Maybe even make more forests.

  Otherwise.....Nah... I will pass.

I am just pleased as a sweet pickle hiding in a hamburger patch I finally got screenshots to load though. Miss the newb designation however.

So this is basically a "how big a colony can you grow" sort of challenge, since the number of nomads depends on your colony size?  I would need to fully develop a large map to be competitive in this challenge.  I'll see whether I can do that in the time allotted.

Obviously that person on Shining Rock who had 3000 citizens would win this one.   ;D

yeah who has the biggest town will get the biggest pack :)

unfortunatly, my only city with more than 1800 (1901 to be exact) never got any nomad request, i dunno if it s a bug, or can happends with RNG of certain seeds.... i dunno.

i need another high pop town till 15th july ^^
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: solarscreen on June 23, 2014, 05:32:00 PM
High pop can certainly help, but you have to survive after you take in the nomads and high pop towns are usually right on the edge of a death spiral!
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: mariesalias on June 23, 2014, 06:23:53 PM
Just a clarification...even if taking nomads kills off 3/4s of my population they have still survived, right? Or do they need to survive with a similar population?

You just need to "survive" one whole year. What's left of your village may not be what you wanted!

Ain't that the truth. It feels like I imagine juggling and walking a tightrope would.

In fact, I hate it so much I'm doing it 6 hours a day  ;)

Post by: mariesalias on July 10, 2014, 10:02:48 AM
I have not even decided if I am going to try this one yet. Or even if the time has run out! I'll have to re-check. I feel like the only town I have that could compete would be y 500 farmer one, and I am not sure how stable that one is long-term even without adding nomads to it.
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: RedKetchup on July 10, 2014, 01:38:48 PM
oh i dont ! :) i didnt won 500 farmers nor i won market radius :) sometime i could but i didnt. I cant... and I dont.. want to win them all :)
just want to compete with people and push them to do better :)
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: irrelevant on July 13, 2014, 08:22:29 PM
Well, you won something, you're a Champion! If it wasn't the 500 farmers, what was it? I didn't win, I'm still just a Trader. ;D
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: RedKetchup on July 13, 2014, 09:35:20 PM
hows that ? you won the 500 farmers, no ? you had 694 farmers. why you arent a champion ?

@RedKetchup  That's amazing! Are you using boarding houses for the nomads?
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: RedKetchup on July 14, 2014, 07:10:01 AM
i think i have 3 .... but with these amount of nomads... they get full and you dont notice any changes lol
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: irrelevant on July 14, 2014, 07:23:07 AM
@RedKetchup  So you just set everyone to work building houses, and if they don't get them finished in time, too bad for them?  ;)

Course I guess as long as they have access to barns with food and can warm up on someone's front porch, they aren't going to die. How long does it take to get all those nomads into housing then? And are you building stone houses, or wood?
Title: Re: Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
Post by: RedKetchup on July 14, 2014, 08:58:38 AM
stone houses only in this city.

they mainly just .... replace and occupy all the pepe's and meme's empty houses which get free. they eat at barns and they warm up at nearest house in their path in wait.

and by the time i can get more nomad.... i lost as many as i ve got :S

this map is full i really cannot  plan any more districts :(

or

i cut down everything left from my forests and i use it for crops/districts ... and i count on merchants to provide me 15,000 logs per year :S

I have been trying to build up my 500 farmer town to be able to accept a big group of nomads. I think I almost have them there but I have not had any groups big enough to beat @RedKetchup yet. I am not likely to get any game time today until this evening, so I have no entry. :D

Good Luck to everyone participating!

I have not been playing this town much, I had been trying to focus my play time on the Vegetarian Challenge, and now the Trader one.  Last time I played it, I did get some big groups, but not bigger then yours. The town's lag makes it not as much fun to play.

Post by: irrelevant on July 23, 2014, 09:29:43 PM
Accepted 282 nomads in Late Spring 78.

Early Summer 79, nomads assimilated, more or less. I did essentially nothing for the entire year except deal with merchants, and try to stamp out 5 disease outbreaks that happened one after another.  The last one is still hanging on a bit.

I didn't build a single building.

I think for a big town like Rickettsville, absorbing a big wad of nomads for just a year isn't really that hard, as long as you have food, clothing, and tools banked.

In the spirit of good challenge i am uploading Rubbering savegame with currently 2100 population, loaded trading ports, sustaibable economy and ample room for expansion, my estimate is that map can support cca 3500 citizens at which point more than 406 nomads should be kicking in. If anyone wants to take this to another level feel free to. http://shiningrocksoftware.com/forum/discussion/3603/rubberring-2k-update#Item_16 (http://shiningrocksoftware.com/forum/discussion/3603/rubberring-2k-update#Item_16) I am taking hiatus from banished so no challenge from me, and even if i play it again i am starting new story.

Yes, as it turns out, it was a LOT short. Next town, I'm putting lots more thought into hospital placement. One needs a hospital for every two markets or so. And they can't all be on the edges either, forcing a long walk through a crowded town is just as bad as walking through lots of idlers.

It feels very strange, not to be working on this town. I'm starting a new town. I've been thinking for some time there's some achievements I don't have, so I'm going for Mountain Men, Isolationist, and One with Nature, with the same town. I think there's much I can learn from doing this; for one thing how not to have my first structure be a farm!

Hopefully this won't take too long (a couple of weeks?) and when I'm done the mod milieu will be more finished, and I'll be able to pick a select set of complete and stable mods to use going forward.

Well, you know how slow I am; this will take me some days.

Gaaa! Especially when I have to start over!  >:( The one thing I really hate about 1.03 & 1.04 is that when you lay down roads for planning, and then save, after that you can't simply delete the roads; they must be removed by builders one square at a time. Lost three hours; screw it, I'm going to bed.

@solarscreen thanks! I think when a town gets over 1500-2000, it's pretty hard to kill it. But it did not feel good, watching my guys die like that. You feel responsible.

What an awesome thread. :D For my newest town (now that I'm done trying out all the awesome mods and have settled on a set to keep using) I've decided to go as big as I can and take in all nomads. I wanted to do that last time I was addicted to Banished, but I got burned out before I even really got going. There's no way I'll get the numbers I've seen here, because I don't pack houses in as tightly so I can't support as large of a population as is needed to get that many nomads, but I'm certainly going to see what I can manage. So, thanks all for the inspiration.

It's funny, but once I got over my aversion for having any uneducated workers, I really started looking forward to "new blood" wandering into town. We'll see how high that number gets before my feelings change on that. :D

How is 'and live' defined? at what point would it count?

One year after you take the nomads, if your town is still going. Piece of cake.  ;)
