Request: smaller Hunting Cabin building
« on: January 13, 2018, 11:37:37 AM »
Hi, guys!
Returned to playing after long time, made a few runs and got unhappy with some of the vanilla buildings. The Hunting Cabin in particular. Considering the building itself serves no purpose except for setting an area radius where hunters go, I don't understand why the model has to be so huge. So I found strange that noone made a smaller version to replace the vanilla's one. Probably there are, but as part of bigger mods. I am sure it could look perfect as a tower-like cabin with 2x2 footprint (4x4 including the road tiles):

Does anybody feel like it could be a good idea for a little stand-alone mod?

P.S.: Go Hunting mod seem to be close as a solution, but the mark spot get easily lost in the woods. I think a tall building model like on the pics above would serve as a better solution.

RED's hunting cabin has 2 sides.same as vanilla but 1 half is a house.plus the pine mod or mini mod or.......many options. those towers in your pics are similar to the pine mod foresters.

Ya, have a look at Forest Outpost.  Makes quick and efficient work of the usual forestry nodes with a smaller overall footprint.  Maritimes Pines, too, but it's heavily modded in other ways that may or may not fit what you are looking for.

Can't find "RED's hunting cabin" - maybe it is a part of some bigger mod? Love his little chapel though - a must-have thingy just like a storage shed, tiny mine, tiny quarry and a chop wood. Those I always include in my games. A tiny market is good, but feels slightly cheaty - too much capacity for such a small size. I wish it be 8x8 size (10x10 including road) making it compatible with a 2x2 house blocks grid.

You know, it is a good approach to have a few building size options (small/medium/large) so that Banished doesn't turn into a tetris puzzle-fitting game for OCD people like me who MUST place building tightly enough to not leave any empty tiles in a building blocks.  :)  As for the Forest Outpost, it includes more than I want - I don't like my UI cluttered with options I do not use.

Thanks for suggestions though.  :)

    it is the old hunter hut.

        for markets there are several options.KID's market puzzle,EB's 1.07 set.you might want to look at 1.06 market mods as well. since they don't store the new items,the vendor concentrates on the needed items.this is an advantage. the market isn't stocked with the new items.they move what the bannies need,food,herbs,clothing,etc. there is SLINK's small market set,a general store. these will go under the storage icon since they are 1.06 mods.
     experimenting with different mods,you will find more good stuff.if the mod doesn't fit you,you can always take them back out.
