Title: BRAD'S SETTLING of AMERICA SERIES: Towns #5
Post by: brads3 on July 09, 2017, 08:43:18 AM

         GOOD morning,after wayy too much testing and completely rebuilding my mod order,i do think i have fixed most issues.after much consideration i decided to drop back to the original NAT DIV mod.the upgrade slows this computer too much.this way is 4times faster.oddly the original has conflicts with less mods as well. i moved the flax patch,pine and NAT DIV to the top just below RK's trade fix.the pine workers work better and aren't so quick to help the builder.i do give up reeds but the dock reed grower will supply some.this is the best balance i could get.hopefully i have no major issues.

mods added:brad's smoke shed-added with the start group so it isn't overrode by CC,EB material store, EB natural irrigation+deco,
     EB irrigation system 170004,KId plimouth harmonized,KIDS houseboats.
mod count 110+

adjustments: NMT 2.04,training camp,and garden wall utility above CC to help give more water and hunting.  KID's colonial above all KID mods to fix the
     icons,NECORA's group down below CC so we don't override CC and ducks.

map: TOWNS,280400288,fair,lake map.CC huge map,medium start<nat div>, disasters off

goal: to build at least 1 of every piece of all mods. exceptions: CC orchard forests do not work.with so many pieces and "f" variants,this is a huge project.2 forts,4 castles,a major park,a supersized zoo,and too many towns.added pieces of varous mods.3 road sets and 3 canal sets.

       we start with 10 adults and 3 children.we will build from the mini mod to start.add 2 lookout towers
,a small barn,and 2 crop fields.it will be tight living in tents for a while but we will manage.it will take time also to build supplies.
       
       in year 4,2 indiand arrive.they will start a mini forest to the east.once the pine storage is built,we can clear the rocks for the forest.
      to give some insight to the production,the mini fisherman is about 500,the lookout towers are 4-500 minimum,and the crop fields are 500+.
     to help keep logs moving to the firewood chopper,we add a market cart near our pile.this helps the chopper produce just short of 500 firewood per year.

       i did figure out what the weird greenish blobs are. they are furs.the mini forester will collect these as well as pelts.a nice change to the pine mod.
        in year 9,another indian couple found our small village.they will gather herbs and run a first aid tent in the forest.

YEAR 10-17

    we had 2 nomad couples.our population has increased by 10.we have a few more buildings to finish off the mini mod set.we are gaining on resources and food count is over 10,000.

   wow,the barns are filling too fast. we decided to build a small market.by being centrally located it will help move goods across the map.planning ahead,we build the vanilla boarding house near it.later we add a large food barn with cellar.with a 9000 capacity, hopefully we have enough storage.a lumber yard is built at the edge of the forest.then we can start on the fort north wall.yes,i am going slow.with so much to build,i am trying to make a plan.
   part of the plan is to build forests to the east all the way to the edge.then go alone the edge with more forests as needed.to the south between the 2 rivers,build the main fort.this should give it more room.a nordic town is planned to the far northeast.along the lake to the west,trading posts are planned.south of this i would like to build the 3 large towns.hopefully by the time i get there i will not need the hills for stone and iron.between the main river and the next stream going west, crop farms with the 2 plymouth sets are figured.to the far west on the pennisula between the lakes, the zoo and a park since we need the water for the whale. yes, there is a killer whale in here.there is a mountain to the east for a mining production area and then the far northwest corner.that still leaves the thatch,fodder,5 castles,and several villages as well as a ton of markets.
    for now,we expand south and clear land for the fort and begin some of the buildings.

     in year 15,8 settlers arrive to help us.now we will begin to make lumber and furniture.working east south of the lake,we add a forest outpost.we will use iron and build the emporium to store the venison and other supplies.the forest outpost herbalist collects herbs but the mini did not.
       by spring,most construction was completed so the laborers could begin to push a road through to the FO. forest.once the road is clear, rocks can be removed from the FO. forest.work will begin soon on the mini trading post.by fall of year 17,we add a grinder and house from the workplace mod.as workers graduate,we can expand our diets and trade goods.

year 18-19

     
   by fall,14 more settlers find their way to our mini townhall.they will help expand our forest.we add a FO school and a pine furriers hut.to help process furs,we add RK's fur tailor and expand on the workplace mod set also.with so many "f" variants and trying to conserve space some buildings may look out of place.
   the nomads brought with them a child who is sick with mumps.he is sent to the med tent in the forest to quaratine him.the forester did catch it, but both recovered quickly.a builder fell off a ladder and died.
the following year we had a bad case of dysentery run rampant through the forest workers.we lost 1 child before it was cleared up.

YEAR 20-24

       our population has grown to 65.new settlers arrive frequently.we have clothing to trade,honey mead, and stone tools.we stockpile furniture since the mini TP won't stock it.the mini mod is almost completed. the church and a small food market haven't been built yet. i plan to build all the churches in 1 location.the workplace lacks a dairy and baker and we continue to expand the FO. with the forest.progress is being made on the fort when the builder has time.
       as we break even on food,we continue  to add fields.our workplace grinder keeps making flour,which we will need lots of later.with so many buildings needing the production area,we need to build food way up to support it.
   
       in year 22,22 new settlers arrive.we consider sending some to the fort to start processing iron.this would allow us to build a surplus while we have extra firewood.now that we have a bridge to the east from the fort,we should start a fodder field to the south and extend the road to the future production area.with 1 fishing at the fort,we still need 3 or 4 of them to produce food.for now, we send a quick hunter and fisherman out.
    with the plimouth farms started,we will add  the rowhouse traders for livestock and seeds.to keep the trading easier,we will ship furniture at the seed TP,tools to the livestock,and keep our clothing and mead at the mini TP.our mini TP does trade for spinach seed.
    during all our construction,we have an outbreak of mumps.luckily the only death we have is from childbirth.
     once our workers are caught up,the builder begins on the fort office and storage cellars.the laborers continue to push a road east.we did build a lot in 1 year.
      we clear more fields and trade for bison.our small holding pen can not handle many.once completed,our workers begin clearing rocks for the fodder field.the holding pen is switched to leghorns that a merchant brought to our livestock trader.

YEAR 25-28 summer

    we have grown to 104 citizens,35 adults,10 students,and 39 children.we have had 3 deaths over the years.  we are working on building our 6th mod set.for now we do need to continue adding to the first plimouth plantation set and our farms.we now have 3 trading posts.we have made some trades for chickens, bison,and 3 crop seeds.
   we build a larger chicken coop.the next merchant brought us 2 pigs. our small holding pen is always useful.
    while we ait for graduates,we keep our builder busy.a supply shop,mini food market,school,cemetary,and woodchopper are added to the plantation.soon after,the workers are sent to help clear trees for the fodder.
a stable and well are added.this will allow us to build up a supply of water and fertilizer.

YEAR 28 SUMMER-year 30
 
   IN SUMMER,28 new settlers arrived.a few are sent to the forest. a diagnal lookout tower and the FO sauna are constructed along with more FO cabins.our workers are sent to clear as much land as they can for crops while ,more plantation houses are being built.with the amount of food we will need,it will be a frantic year.
     fall brings a case of mumps.as the outbreak spread,we had to send a doctor to the fort clinic. it takes all 3 health centers til spring to clear up the mumps outbreak.they did handle it well as nobody died.
   we add a medievil apiary to the plantation.work begins also on a greenhouse near the fodder.we plant a pecan orchard near our main cemetary and finish off the DS stone hovel mod.by winter of year 29,our boardinghouse and barracks are empty.our food stocks are slowly recovering.

YEAR 30-summer year 33

       population 145,85 adilts,17 students,43 children.32 % educated.43 houses+ boardinghouse and barracks
other than churches,mini mod and plimoth plantation 1 are completed as well as several small mods.we have 4 schools operating plus 2 out of 3 trading posts and med clinics.our food is recovering from the last group of nomads.we have traded for 5 new seeds and pigs,bison,and leghorns.
  the workers are busy clearing and supplying a pig pasture.after that,we will take time to clear and lay more roads.since we have extra workers,we double up at the fodder and stable,and add a well in the fort.
    as more students graduate and the forest population grows,we expand east building a maple forester,
herbalist,hunter,and pine cabins.this will work well to give us food and logs both.the sap can be stockpiled for later.
    when the merchant brought tomato seeds,we started work on a ketchup factory.we also trade for beef cows and sheep.a bare pasture is cleared behind the market in the fort and work continues on a large pasture along the river.

SUMMER YEAR 33-35

    20 new settlers arrive in early summer of year 33.after much consideration,several families are sent east of the stream. this will expand us toward the mining mountain.others work to expand pastures and farms for the 2nd plimoth plantation set.this will help boost our food so we can handle more large nomad groups.
   by year 35,our boardinghouse and barracks are empty except for a 12 year old female.finally we are able to move the bison to a larger pasture near the beef and pigs.we have 10 seed crops plus the pecan orchard.our tool count and clothing has dropped.the vendors have tried to keep everyone supplied.we add 2 more blacksmiths and up 1 to iron tools.even though we shut down the refinery,our smelter still has fuel to process iron ore.

YEAR 35-37

   ALMOST 200 bannies.several in their 50's,a 62,63,and a 64 year old.after this year,we will need more houses.we do have a  few 15 year olds.our education is ar 36% and with us accepting all nomads it should stay about that level.
    as our pastures fill,our food reserve should increase.we will need to expand the fodder and stables before we can supply more greenhouses.
    we expand toward the production center slowly. the log depot and a sawmill and then a CC apiary to stock wax for candles.we need different building supplies to build many of the fort buildings.
    in year 36,we expand on the 2nd plantation set and add 2 fields.we also send workers to help with fodder and our 2nd meadow.to push fertilizer more,we clear a plantation field along the stream to grow grass.we also add a pine trapper and a FO diagnal cabin between the forest to help supply textiles.

YEAR 37-40

     WOW,29 MORE SETTLERS came to town in spring.the workers are stopped from helping clear the 2nd fodder meadow.the workers are sent to clear more land for the plantation farms and the builders are sent to build a forist between the 2 fodder meadows.the farther out we work to expand the longer clearing takes.we expand the plantation and add the old bakery and mill.
    we add a 2nd greenhouse with a well.this should give enough food to the east to beginn work on the some mines.we add our perfume shop and begin a road of adobe houses for workers.then work can begin on the multi mine.
    by year 40,we have 76 houses and the barracks and boardinghouse are empty once more.we were able to trade for freishman cows.we can now build the workplace dairy and bakery.other than fencing this mod is completed.

YEAR 40-42

    wow,40 YEARS,at this rate it will take 200-250 years to finish this.i have tried to leave the builder and laborer counts higher to speed it up.nomads have come consistenly as we empty the boarding houses.even though we have pushed food constantly,i wish the reserve was double by now.
    we have completed the mini mod,both plimoth plantation sets,the workplace and vegetable garden.several smaller mods were also finished including the ketchup factory,Ds hovels, and new trees.some work remains to the forest outpost and pine mods in the forest.with all the work,we are probably about 10% of the way through.

      population 261,156 adults,23 students,82 children in 76 houses.education level is at 42%.we start the year with over 13,000 food.our food production and graph shows progress,as we did gain 4000 extra food last year.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    according to the math,we need 2 more houses. this will finish off the diagnal FO houses and help keep some laborers in the forest.since we are ahead on fodder,the stble field is switched to peas.with the worker count so high,we increase limits and set all buildings to work.this leaves us with 4 builders and 20 workers.if they find extra time,they can clear for the next pasture.
    before the bannies have time to start the pasture,33 nomads arrive.this means 7 more food workers will need to be planned.work begins on the pine forest and to clear land for sherbrooke to the north of it.we also send workers to build a 2nd stable.as soon as they finish the stabe they will build 2 more greenhouses.
    by spring,the pine tower,hunter,trapper,and harvester are working. the 3rd greenhouse is producing corn. the 4th will hold off a year til the stable gets ahead on fertilizer.though we pushed as hard as we could,we barely had 2 fields cleared by late spring.the farmers do start to plant them.more fields are cleared and the builders start on the colorful sherbrooke houses and shops.it becomes a busy town with all the textile shops.finally the boardinghouses are once again empty.
     we extend the main sherbookre road south and line it with pine workers.the turpentine,pitch kiln, firewood chooper,sap boiler,and lodge housesto keep from overstocking,we send crews back to finish off the RH trading posts north of the plantations.we send flowers to the seed trader since they are over 2000.our general RH trader is stocked with perfumes.the livestock trader continues to stock wood tools and now some perfumes.
   we have 323 settlers.

i will try to make some soon.

but before i have alot of job to do :P
i have more and more the will to just play some games with my own mods....
and i noticed that i will never play with everything i did for this game. yeah some things (alot) i did are nice... but to play with ? nan, never

so probably i will ending to make myself a kit , a whole package with only with the items i like to play with ^^
kinda a "Director's cut" or "Editor's pick choices" of items i like and make a personal package. will offer it to people, of course.

KID,i hope so. it slows me down sometimes. i have to pause and think where i want the next set of nomads.some buildings can't be built til i build that production area up more.so some of the spaces is planned.some i have for more houses  like the plantation farms. i needed crop space more there.even necora's sherbrooke has more housing than i need til i get domestic animals.the game has its challenges.
   EB, i miss NILLA also. she stopped and said she was ill and didn't explain faather. that has been a while ago.
  at least now i know i didn't put you all to sleep yet.

YEAR 42-45

      year 42. to use up bonemeal,we build a tropical greenhouse at the fort.it will produce pineappples.
work continues on sherbrooke.we build a tailor,blacksmith,and hospital.behind the hospital i play with the riffle mod and form a small pond.using KID's decor plant mod,we do make a small park.
      it will take time for the pine trees to grow and produce,so we have many extra workers.we send them to clear land around the new town.we added a cemetary,a fishing pier,the mill,and boathouse.we do manage to build a bridge to access the northwest corner.
      finally,we are able to drop back and work on the mining area.we add a small stone quarry.work begins on a candle shop,potter,and cooper.near the market square,we build a stone roof office,school,and health center.a tool shortage slows work down.with trading and adjusting blacksmiths, we do recover.

YEAR 45-47

     in summer, 23 nomads arrive.we begin work on snughouses near the mining. to get our tool count up,we build a vanilla blacksmith and several market carts to move materials.next we will work to boost food.a large pasture for the dairy cows and more crop fields and also fill in some spaces with more plantation houses.we also add the throwback old dairy that will produce multiple items at the same time.we send 1 couple to expand the stables to produce more fertilizer.1 family remains inour boardinghouse.

YEAR 47-50

     now that our food is up over 25,000,we need to get our log count up. we also need to add 4 houses.work begins on a vanilla forest,hunter,and gatherer with log cabin housing.this is our 5th forest.as the construction and a road is being finished,60 new settlers sail up to the mini townhall.
   we decide to send 20 to the production area,10 houses.the others we will splt,some to a western town near the fodder and some to start colonial farms across the stream to the west.we will have to trade for more tools and food.in 1 year,we have about half of the RH production houses and western town build.half the new fields are layed out as well.
    we have had several deaths due to scarlet fever. our cemetaries are about half full.i checked on our old peopple and found 2 that are 77 years old.
    by winter of year 49,we have 50 crop fields plus a pecan orchard.our food reserve is over 31,000.with all the construction,we are still trying to push logs and iron up.we have way more workers that need to have a workplace. we have 55 laborers and 15 builders.

YEAR 50 review

    population 493,292 working adults,56 students,145 children in 129 house + 4 boardinghouses.43% educated

    we grow by over 5 bannies per year.this means we should add a food worker per year.we need 7 more houses.we should also add 12 more food workers.we have traded for 17 seeds mostly vegetables and sheep,dairy cows,deer,leghorns,pigs,and bison.4 or our 5 greenhouses produce fruit. 1 is set to corn.
    we export mead for food,lobster pots and turpentine for building materials,perfume for livestock,
furniture and flowers for seeds,as well as leather and pelt coats and candles.we peoduce several different types of clothing and tools.

     mods completed:mini,plymouth houses,veggy&fruit barn,storage shed,emporium,KID's deco plants,forest outpost,workplace,chicken coop,zmasher,bakery and mills,tropical greenhouse,brad's smokehouse,new trees,RED;s fodder utility,ketchup,snughouses,and DS hovels.i have held churches and fences for later. about 46 mods out of 110 mods.i have only used about 25% of the map.several large mod sets are started.with many large mod sets yet to build,i think i am close on space but not overly concerned.
     our greatest problem seems to be logs.we should start to run the east edge with forests.this will also push our meat and fruit up.in the next 5-10 years,logs and our production area should be a primary focus.if nomads arrive,they should expand the colonial farms and out wildwest town.for the next 50 years,i want to build the large city mod sets.unless i get food reserves up condiserably, i will hold off building more nomad catchers like the lighthouse.
    though i should do a tour,i will hold off.it would be a lot of pics.lets see where i am by year 100.

YEAR 50

   we give the workers time to catch up and finish clearing areas they are working.they add 2 fields and the builders finish off a couple markets.we add another greenhouse and well.we expand our production rowhouses.the thatch hut will be built south of the wildwest town. since i have the original version,this will complete the nat div mod.it will give us more logs for now and help our firewood later.we have a fatal error winter of year 50.that sucks cause the production town had a lot of work planned or finished.there was no save today so that is a lot of work lost.grrr %$^#$%$#@!!
    after redoing the entire year,we added aonther tiny mine for coal and a quarry.to use up feathers,we build a dock workshop and another shorehouse.we have built all of EB's markets to finish off another mod.

YEAR 51-summer of 52

   work begins on the hardwood forest.we add the vanilla gatherer and herbalist and RK's hunter cabin.
across the north forest road we build a pine school.to deal with our growing student count,we build a dock school near the workplace village.once completed we will remove rocks from the forests.
    with extra workers,we dig 2 mines.we expand the western town and our colonial farms.of course we have a tool shortage as soon as we begin to gather the rocks.

@brads3 oh my gosh, year 52 already.  You have some nice pictures and your inventory is very colorful with all the different products.  Education rate is good considered large population.  Nice  :)

Post by: brads3 on July 26, 2017, 02:30:11 PM
yes i figure it is going to take a long time to do all the mod sets.the work goes slow. a few tool shortages have hurt us.we almost constantly trade for tools,logs,and some food.but we produce lobster traps,saddles,turpentine and several clothing types.we use fur and wool coats. sherbrooke has linen clothing.
  one thing with soo many products i like to do is have more trading posts. then you can set them to trade different products. then i split about half the item from  the inventory to the trade posts. say i have like 225 turpentine,i'd send 100 to trade.it does help keep track of what is going where and what is being stockpiled.

Do you have the trading posts set for auto trading?  There does seem to be a lot to keep track of and it seems to be going pretty well though.

no i do not. i do them manually when boats arrive. good reason for it. if you auto trade yet don't have enough surplus,it will trade anyhow.say at harvest when you have food built up from crop fields,it would auto buy food and use up some items. one thing with the traders to remember is they have an order to how they stock. say you set a trading post to trade 2 items out. the dude runs around trying to stock the 1st item and won't stock enough of the 2nd.
  i had a case where i was using furniture for seeds and then set it to stock flowers.if the flower count went too high,other buildings would stop working due to the limit.it works once. then the guy is waiting for furniture and doesn't stock the flowers back up.next boat,i would not have enough items to buy seed. if he had stocked the flowers then i could have bought some seeds.this problem you have control over by manually trading. if i auto-trade then the problem would be worse since then it would happen to all the trading posts.the other thing i worry is on auto trade,they will reurchase the seed i already have.so you send goods for no gain.
   when i stop the game every 5 years or so and do status and production pics and info,i then take time to check the inventory and adjust the amounts of the items going to them.i think by trading out half of any item helps alot.this way uyou don't over-trade stuff away and the trading post can be restocked quickly.say i trade hide coats,by only trading half the amount, there is always some in stock for the bannies to use and there is room below the limit so the tailors don't stop functioning.
   these boats have brought items shuffled as well. say a seed then a bunch of stuff and then another seed listed by the merchant. if it trades top down, it could miss items or it might trade for veggys when i would rather fruit.they have gave me plenty of veggy seed but no fruit seeds. i have been setting the greenhouses to fruits to keep health up.
   that is 1 reason it may look like i jump around and not finish 1 mod area completely. each has had to wait for certain items or livestock,or seeds.like the workplace had to hold up for cows to run the dairy and bakery pieces. sherbrooke waits for flax seeds and waited for the pine forest to produce as well.now it waits for maple seeds.the fort waited for building materials and cannons before some pieces could be built. now it makes muskets and stocks military supplpies to make more pieces.the other thing that holds buildings back with CC is iron. you start with about 40.then you have to refine ore and fuel to produce iron.now i have several mines but i use the iiron just as fast.

@brads3 , thanks for info on auto trading.  I have never tried it.  I don't do a lot of trading, usually only for seeds and livestock and don't have much of a variety of trade goods.  I do want to give it a try sometime though.
 
You are keeping an eye on what needs what, it is a big job on this map, I think.   I managed alright with the iron ore chain in the North, CC not so well on the freezing up maps so I used the iron is iron mod on the last cc map I tried, so I could spend less time on iron and more time seeing what else was in cc.  I want to try cc again and the pine set too, I will have to test and see if I can do them together without freeze up.

Hey Brad, I still see buildings I don't recognize, in the last picture is that trading post from CC?  Is the long building with matching roof row houses?   Good that you did not limit yourself to only 1 of each building, that would have been extremely difficult. Hope tool supply improves as you hope it will.  :)

Post by: brads3 on July 27, 2017, 09:07:46 AM
the building to the left of the watch tower? that is the quartermaster.it doesn't work as a trading post. you set a worker and it brings military supplies which then are used to build and maintain other fort buildings.that building requires  "building supplies" to build it.now that the quartermaster functions.i can uild the blockhouse and several other fort pieces.some require hardtack and some silver.KID's rowhouse blacksmith makes muskets that are needed for some pieces also.

YEAR 55-58

     population 610,360 workers,94 students,and 156 children in 148 houses+2 boarding houses.2 boarding houses are empty.48% educated.our production shows progress on logs but dropoff on food.we mine for stone,iron,iron ore,coal,salt and gold ore.our many traders have been busy keeping us stocked.

     finally, we are able to mark and plan the rural market square for our colonial town center.the builders go to work building a school and large houses while our workers continue to clear fields.we build KID's market bbq and soup mods.they will feed the production workers.
    we begin work on the colonial production buildings and meeting hall.with good trading,we keep our tool and food count up.

YEAR 58-60

   while we have been busy pushing food up,we hit the limit on logs.all limits are now adusted.even so,we set out to build the nre tree forest and connect the east forest road to the production road.as the suplies are delivered,the builders work on the parade and musket range.after trading for domestic animals,we build the small animal pens at the fort.before much work is done,62 ablebodied settlers sail up to the mini townhall.little did we know they brought measles with them.
     we add a 3rd fodder meadow south of the wildwest town.this will improve our greenhouse production.work begins on a dock-quay town between the lakes north of the mini and FO forests.we work feverishly.we manage to get the sugarhouse,bakery,and boardinghouse built in our colonial town.with the new forest, we add another trapper and herbalist.though we accomplish much by year 60,we need more housing.
    as the measles was cleared up, a diptheria outbreak starts.we lost 12 from the disease and 3 from old age in the lasr 2 years.we still have 1 citizen 88 trs old.
   our stone and iron ore mines are both shut down wating for candles and to be dug deeper.we have way more workers than we wish. over 100 laborers and 25 builders.as we continue to take food in trades,our food reserve is over 30,000 in  spring.

YEAR 60- summer of 61

     population 745,470 adult,81 students,194 children in 174 houses including 5 boardinghouses.
52% educated.

      the goal for the past 10 years was to bring the log count up and work on our production area while we expanded the colonial farms.we added forests,extended and connected the roads.our colonial fields extend to the west river.we added mines,markets,houses,and more to the production area.the wild west town was expanded east and a fodder meadow addded to the south. 100 new nomads have moved into our towns.
      mods completed: KID's wildwest,2 market food mods,RK's hunter cabin,EB farmhouses and leather shops.
8 more mods finished.
-------------------------------------------------------------
   guess i'll take a minute to explain a couple things. i don't use autosaves.i save when nomads arrive and i save near the 0 or 5's depending on the game flow and how busy life is at the time.if or when there are errors, then i do start to save more to narrow down the error.these stops give time to regroup the production and trading ports.with the game paused i can go through the inventory and rotate stocks.CC has many items but i don't have a lot of any 1 item.i was able to move the candles out from the trade posts since the mines need them to dig deeper.after that candles will build in stock.i adjusted pelt clothing since now i am using more coats.the other thing i find is sometimes a trade post is busy trying to stock 1 item and not stocking another on his list. you over use the 1st item but the 2nd stocks barns and adds toward the limits.like say i set 1 to fancy furniture and flowers,the furniture produces slower than the flowers.he will run around trying to find the furniture and not stock the flowers.then when the merchant comes,there won't be enough to trade with even though the inventory shows a surplus. with CC,there are so many different merchants that they come and go steadily.if you don't correct these issues and send a balance of goods to each trade post,then you end up short when you really need a trade.often you have enough for 1 boat and then a short while later a boat will bring something you want or need and that trader isn't stocked yet.

  excuse the mess as well. the goal is to build at least 1 of everything,so i am not even trying to make it look neat and decorated.i am also leaving spaces on purpose.some is planned for building later.some is so trees can grow in case i need more logs later to build with.normally i would make main roads 3 spaces wide,here i have not kept up on that.with a few tool shortages and diseases,i am about 60 houses short of where i should be. i have too many laborers as well.
   i try to take all nomads but i am not sure i can keep doing that.they aren;t helping enough. i have too much behind.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     there are enough projects started that the bannies need time to catch up. they are busy working on the dock village,a pasture,a milk barn in sherbrooke,and to clear an orchard.the main goal for the next 10 years will be to catch up and  extend the forests south to the southeast corner.i would like to get the roof tile production started as well.
    ok well,i can't build quay houses until we have housewares.i will extend the dock along the east side and leave the west for later.sherbrooke also has a problem. it needs corn to feed the dair barn.we don't have corn seed. it also is waiting for apple and maple trees to make cider and the CC sap boiler.the game goes a different direction than i wanted.
   while i was trying to figure out the plan,the bannies stayed busy. they have cleared more land and built a CC pine forester,gather hut,and cabins.we send the crew to sontinue south and build the 2nd hardwood forester.
    84 nomads show up in summer of year 61. we are not going to be able to accept them with all our boarding houses still being used.sadly, they will depart and travel to a different town or build there own.
the workers are tired and so am i today.

YEAR 61-64

     GOOD MORNING.it works better when i play a day or 2 ahead of posting. then i can go back and fix a mess up.when life has its busy time and appointments, i can post even if i don't play for a few days.i actually used those times up. what is posted is where i am at now.if i had been ahead i could have fixed the mistake with the quay set.i had plans to build a duck hunting and fishing area. that would have helped push food up.instead i fell farther behind.
     i could debate the idea of building houses closer together.yes it would conserve space but then i would have more bannies with less food.some places i do build them closer and leave a walk space between.when i did the plantation sets,if i built closer together they would live farther from the fields.areas like the production,mines,or fort,housese work closer together.areas like farms and forests,they don't.
     the game also has its own play quirks.it gives you the wrong seeds or sends you too many nomads at a time.this 1 hasn't gave me much fruit seed and no corn.the greenhouses are set to fruit and the wild west saloon and sherbroooke dairy can't work.
       there is also a plan that the game works against.sherbrooke has soo many houses,more food is needed  before it can grow.the pine trees took time to produce so there were a ton of laborers there for a while.across the stream to the north i had planned for a nordic town.when i realized sherbrooke needed more space,it got held up.plus i wanted maple and apple orchards there for the CC sugarhouse and the cider press.south of the colonial production,there is pilgrims houses. that is another huge list.plan was to run a double house stip then more fields. then start the next large town mod.again i can't just build the houses without food.it does have its challenges.hopefully i don't mess it up to badly.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
   while the workers are busy clearing land,the builders have mines and more forest sets to build.along the south edge,i would like to build the orchard forests if any of them will work. i do know the apple does not.if none of them work,that will free up some space.along the far west river,we are already working on pastures.
    while we wait for candles,we dig copper and tin mines.we will need more building supplies to build the storage sheds.we trade for some housewares and slowly work on the quays.we also start a diagnal rowhouse with tile roofs.a tunnel is dug through the mine mountain.the forest road is extended south to the edge of the fodder and new hardwood forest.with the mines complete,we run into a tool shortage.iron has been used more than it was mined.
    i do have a mod conflict causing low production from the duck hunters.this doesn't help our food reserve.it must be a mod up moved to override the bakery plus.
    by winter of year 63,we only have 1 family living in any boardinghouse.we do catch up our tool shortage by trading for iron.

    WE finish off the duck and beef pastures.as the builders work to catch up,the laborers clear fields south of the colonial town. hopefully they left enough room for PILGRIMS new england colonial houses.we have built just enough housing to empty the boarding houses.several building projects wait for more building supplies.
    to test the orchard forests,a grape forester has been built along the southern edge.it will take several years to find out if it will produce grapes.2 watch towers are planned there to keep watch of wolves coming over the mountains.

YEAR 65 review

    POPULATION 823,522 adults,112 students,189 children in 189 houses.59% educated.
our food is showing progress. the 3rd fodder field is helping the greenhouses.we definetly have our log production up. our production and mining has been added to.even as we put more bannies to work,we maintian at 100+ laborers and 25 builders.
    i make several adjustments to traders. sherbrookoe's boat house is set to fishing lures to use up pine materials and not logs.some where we will need a dock shop to use reeds for fire bundles and more tailors.we should push more mead as well and trade it for food.
    we spent the last 5 years trying to catch up mostly. we have dug mines deeper,and added forests to help our logs and food.there is many projects started.the colonial town is almost complete.we will add more food processing and production buildings as we start the new england housing sets.this will maintain our food and give us trade goods both.we should build a furniture joiner for regular furniture now that we have extra logs.the diagnal tile-roofed row needs an end house and a school.lets see if tyhe town can gain ground in the next 5 years.

    SPRING brings 96 nomads.with them comes a case of yellow fever which is quickly cleared up with our herbalists and hospitals.since we have corn and apples now,we send a group to sherbrooke to clear more land and build townhouses.
    we deny 90 nomads.we don't even have room for a night or 2 for them.everyone else is super busy.
     in fall of year 68,the colonial pasture finally completes the set.we still need time to build fences.many housese and sheds are already planned to keep builders busy.hopefully by year 70,we can have all the planned construction projects finished.our boardinghouses are still full.

YEAR 70 REVIEW

    POPULATION 1020,656 working,129 students,and 235 children in238 homes including 6 boardinghouses.education level is 61 %.our food production shows progress.we have 100 crops and orchards and 9 greenhouses.plus over 40 hunting and fishing.
    we produce soo mnay items.i do need to take time to adjust trading posts.
with all our forests, we have plenty of logs.our mines are busy trying to get ahead on copper and tin.iron ore is being processed into iron.soon we will build the resource mod to the far west edge.the only concern is sherbrooke needs a lot of pine materials to function. there is space to buildmore forests to the northeast.
   we still need 100 houses and workplaces.as fast as we build ,workers graduate.i don't want to just throw houses without having workplaces to keep them busy.

   inventory: what a mess of items.it never balances.several items produce faster than they are used ,others much slower.even though the boats come and go steadily,they bring the wrong items.this is time consuming to reset.
flowers are over 4500 and perfume can be produced as there is plenty of water.if we add a well,we could build another perfume shop and 2 greenhouses.next is feathers and reeds.we need a survival coat tailor and a ropery.since half the tools are lower grade,we should adjust the smiths as well.then all the trading posts will be working.
 
 mods completed: RED's country houses,wood butcher, EB material wharehouse,KID's lighthouse,both colonial mods,nat div,and special storage.over 65 fully completed.NECORA's mods wait for a few houses and domestic animals.we have only covered about a 3rd of the map surface.

goal next 10 years:finish sherbrooke and start the nordic mods.add the renewable resources to the west with EB"s wharehouse.PILGRIM's houses.main goal is to get the housing up over 300 and the workers under 100 laborers.

        to help move goods,we add a market and 2 carts near the traders.sherbrooke adds several small animal pens for goats,sheep,and chickens. we also finish the shipyards.we manage to build the larger houses.the year seems to go by slower. as we continue on with fences,we also add housing and markets near EB's wharehouse and start the renewable resources.we do need to pick up the pace and accomplish more.

YEAR 72

     the renewable resource is completed.we add 2 lookout towers to keep watch  over the far mountains. a few market puzzle markets will keep them supplied.it will take time for them to clear the trees.work begins on more PILGRIM houses.we turn 71 more nomads away.they didn't want to stay due to our measle outbreak anyhow.the disease takes a toll and we loose several bannies through the year.during the winter,the bannies begin to recover from the illness.we added a lama pasture,another school,a few production buildings,several houses,and more storage.

YEAR 73

    WE finish a foundry and metalsmith.with so much ores to be processed we do need to increase our fuel refinery and add the bundling shed soon.a large group of nomads waunders through our towns.again they do not stay.there is more housing and land clearing planned but not much else.the game kicked me  out twice from a fatal error.this slows me down and forces me to save often.not sure if the game or my comp causing it.hopefully after thse nomads waunder off the map,i can trust it and pick up the pace again.

          we add a 2nd fuel refinery to the R&R area in the west.we will need more furnace fuel to process ores.we decide to run the tin and copper mines out then use them to process.if we need more ores we can then dig more mines.in the meantime,workers are busy clearing and laying roads for new greenhousese and another stable to feed more rowhouses near the production.the builders are busy constructing meat processors in the colonial town.by fall the pilgrim additions are all built.the builders can take a break before we start year 75.

YEAR 75 REVIEW

   population 1123,730 adult,130 students,263 children with 67% educated in 274 houses+ 6 boarding houses.

the last 5 years went slow. we did get the renewable resource and PILGRIM's houses built.sherbrooke is built as far as it can,it waits for more domestic animals.we added many fences and the training camp decorations and the wildwest sidewalks.there is much more to do.our food reserve holds very well.
    the 1st thing to do is some adjustments to the traders to use up extra goods.then add some processors to take care of others.we need a maple sap boiler and add a 2nd worker to the sugarbeet refinery.this is a process as some items produce fast and others we will need more of later.the biggest shortage is iron.we will double the workers at the foundry and build them 2 houses.we will add a RH tavern and a ricestill and paddy.along with all this will be housing for the workers.a year's worth of projects just to handle excess inventories.
      soon i would like to start the many canal sets and the nordic sets.

      we build 2 greenhouses,a rice still and paddy,and several houses by fall.considering the number of laborers,i am impressed with our food reserve.it holds at 55,000+ before fall harvest season.there is so many small projects scattered about to keep track of.they do finish some storage including 2 root cellars.work continues on a CC sap boiler and some orchards.1 needs cut as the bannies planted it wrong and another is being cleared for apples.

that is the parade ground. a decorative piece.those are from CC frontier.some of the fort pieces take a while to build. you need cannons,muskets,military supply,building supply,etc.that pic shows some of the requirements for the pieces to work.this pic shows the return production for 1 year.it does varry from year to year though.

Post by: brads3 on August 11, 2017, 10:34:11 AM
how bout a tour of the fort? more zoomed in and pieces labeled.excuse the mess.since i am trying to add at least 1 of everything, i do switch textures often on KID's coverings.there is a lot of little pieces in the fort.the fence and towers take a lot of logs. the star fort requires canons.the small refinery and smelter are helpful early on to process iron.as is the lumber cutter.the barracks serves as a boarding house.KID's rowhouses work super well with this.the extra offices are helpful especially when i add the CC cellars. each stores different items.there is enough cellars to go along 2 of the RH townhalls.
the RH blacksmith does produce muskets.a fort needs a messhall so we use the pub kitchen and add a coffee house.to avoid scuvey we add a tropical greenhouse.the placer mines and smelters can suppply silver pferring,basically money or coins.this is where the small animal pens are handy for chickens,sheep,and dairy cows.
      i do wish the barracks was split so a family could live in each half of it. the doors are already there for it. just needs a center wall.i also wished the towers worked somehow. RED fixed that with the training camp but the towers don't fit tight with the fort walls.DS came up with his giant tower that raids travelers. both ideas work well.i do realize the CC crew is on strike and WOB modders are busy and don't wan't to take over for CC.
   there is other options that i didn't use in this fort.the dock pieces has a small school and herb grower.EB's new market set and KID's workplace mod would fit here.i haven't even planned the INDIAN village and trader yet.
       hope you enjoy the tour.

I personally am too busy with my own projects to take on a huge project like that.
I am also not really into the colonial era for Banished so personally it will be hard for me to create things as my mind will not be really set to it.

But beside that we don't have the code and meshes from CC so certain things will have to be made  from scratch if updates are needed.

So far CC still works with Banished BETA 3 and I only foresee (some) problems in the future if Luke add more and more new features to the mod kit/game and as a result CC will not be (fully) compatible anymore with the new features if BL stays MIA.

I like to add that I had that feeling a bit when I did the colonial houses for the Pilgrim as they are not really what I would design :)
But I still plan however to make the New England Colonial set from scratch to get rid of the many polygons which are not needed and to fit the Lean To's a bit better.

I already have some textures set aside to replace some of the ones used. No big changes, still about the same colors, wooden colored boards, but a bit more to scale.

As colonial houses are rather easy to create it will not take me a very long time to redo the whole set.

You can just try giving it a shot brads.

Like Red said, we did not know anything either and Red was even in a more worse situation because he was just about the only modder in the beginning.

I learned quite a lot from Red and somewhat from kral by asking questions and Red has giving me a lot of his meshes to look at before we put them in the Laboratory.
It was a case of trust we developed under each other so we share our stuff without being afraid that some run of with them and claiming them their own.

If you get a bit the drive a lot will fall into place and things going to be a lot more easier.
And we still learning each day.

Start simple with some map changes or something. Try to make a simple house in Blender or similar 3d model and code it so it can be added to the game.
Nothing fancy. I started mostly with just a box with a roof, no windows and doors) to learn the coding so it fitted in the game.
When it worked I did more and more detailing.

The moment you see, even when it looks like crap, it working in the game you will get the drive to keep working on it :)

And if you get stuck we help you to get it working. Most of us learned this way and poor Red had to learn most by himself as there were no other modders to ask questions to.

      while there is still some projects being finished,the workers head north to begin clearing and supplying NORDIC buildings.a school,several houses,a mill and bakery,cemetary,and a hospital.we trade for 20 domestic animals to be used in sherbrooke.as time allows,they work on a canal near the dock-quay village.
   in year 77,we add more sherbrooke colorful houses and some processors.a vodka distillery,dairy,weaver,smokehouse,and venison dryer are built.to help our firewood needs,we assign more workers to our various sawmills.

it is CC.there is a lot of buildings using firewood for processing.houses are burning coke fuel and thatch also. i thought the no coal would override everything but firewood and thatch. it hasn't worked that way.i di have a lot of sawmills with 2 and 3 workers pushing out firewood also.and i have been steadily trading for it ,taking several hundred firewood each time.good thing is i have not lost anyone from freezing.

      while work continues in the north,a crew has been busy with the canal.it didn't look right so they rebuilt half of it.i admit i have not built many of these.since i would like to build only 1 of each set,i am trying to push it in a tight spot. this is just the 1st of 6.
    we finish a silkworm hut and mulberry grove to feed it.when the workers cleared land for a new sheep pasture,i realize someone stole the sheep.must have been all those nomads last year. there was over 500 of them.no telling which set took the sheep.
     though we now have over 300 houses and we have doubled up workers,we need 100 more houses and have 200 laborers.

Title: Re: BRAD'S SETTLING of AMERICA SERIES: Towns #5
Post by: brads3 on August 13, 2017, 03:21:37 PM
not sure. i rebuilt those because i thought i used the wrong pieces.they are the canal fillers,shorter than the sections.they look fine in summer too.this is the 2.04 version.i figure it has to be the AO snow somehow.there is a mound of dirt between 2 pieces i can't get rid of either.
Title: Re: BRAD'S SETTLING of AMERICA SERIES: Towns #5
Post by: RedKetchup on August 13, 2017, 04:21:15 PM
do you still have the very old NMT2.0 in your mod list ? because fillers are made from same living water as the bigger pieces, and since they are living and moving, they cannot attract snow :P

all the very old pieces from NMT2.0 were not moving so maybe they could get snow :P


EDIT : oh i see : you dont use NMT 3.0 Canal System !!!!!!!!
you are using NMT2.0 !!!!!!

Post by: brads3 on August 13, 2017, 04:59:38 PM
YEA,I am surprised all the pieces don't look the same with snow though.i want to run this map and after you finish the new NMt look at more uploads.i haven't used the canals much before,but there are other parts to the NMT i use all the time.the meat dryer and salt mine and the tile roof or brickmaker are handy.i like the clay pit more than the CC shoremen. NMT lets me build most buildings without the added building supply so i can use them sooner too.i am curious to see if you split the NMT more since there is so many textures and options now too?
Title: Re: BRAD'S SETTLING of AMERICA SERIES: Towns #5
Post by: RedKetchup on August 13, 2017, 07:57:12 PM
bah i try to do themes.

btw, it is possible there is an error in NMt2.0 filler that makes it gather snow. it was probably not a bug, but a missing from my part to change a line in the filler files while i did it for most of all other files... an omission ?
thats the testing part. most often i hope on people to find those errors quickly and tell me ^^
for now it is kinda late, i wont comeback make a "new" build of an old 2.04 mod made 2 years ago ^^ specially when i am redoing everything to update to 3.0

YEAR 79

           to finish off the nordic sets,we build more houses,another school with addition,and another market.we also add a multi-quarry and wharehouse.
more fields and a woodcutter were built also.
      a few bannies died trying to dig the canal.after some time it did start to take shape.there does seem to be some cosmetic glitches. in winter snow makes it look like there is a floor or solid part across the filler pieces.there is also a mound of dirt that won't let us dig out.i do get the complete 4x colonial textured canal to fit even if the water flows are not the same.please note RED has upgraded this set and that would solve the glitches.
       though we have over 20 bannies working on firewood,we do use it quickly.there is 4 sawmills,a dock wood finder,plus a couple bundler shops for reeds. our sap boilers,smokehouses,brick or tile maker,and others burn it for processing.most processing is done with furnace fuel via coke from the coal stacks burner.our houses do use coke fuel even with the "no coal"mod.they also burn thatch.

YEAR 80 REVIEW

    POPULATION 1244,826 working adults,143 students,and 275 children in 303 houses+6 boardinghouses. education level 72%.

   out of the 8 nordic mods only the school and addition is not completed.it waits for bricks and builders.all 6 of NECORA'S mods have been used.i should do more with the riffle mod however.we have also expanded our textile processing to include silk. total mods used and completed:85
   
    we need to finsih the 1st canal and clear more fields in the north village.as i expand the north farming,i will do more of the rowhouses and production area.i will adjust the trading.for the moment i will increase our food and firewood inports.
     i do have to decide what town will go south of the colonial.i have debated running a canal straight across since there are so many sets.i am not sure it would fit in 1 run and i still have EB's irrigation systems.i have room arround the lakes.if i use the CC colonial houses south of the colonial,it might work better and give me an idea of how much space is let.by then hopefully i will be down to the NMT and EB's irrigation mods.
    i set the new canal trading post to alcohol,cider,wine,and whiskey.the mini is set to leather coats.since the merchants like to bring what we already have,we don't need to stock much in the seed and livestock trading posts.some of the trading posts don't use all items.i try to set the food traders to items we do produce steadily.it would be nice if we could organize the inventories by flag,food all in a group,crafted,building supplies grouped.

    we add a 2nd set of rowhouse diagnals and more fields.we also expand the silk production with another mulberry grove.we add another greenhouse and begin a 2story rowhouse set with tile roofs.with 4 roof textures this is a huge set.

YEAR 85 REVIEW

population 1309,908 adult,159 student,242 children.77% educated in 300+ houses

    as slow as it goes lately,i did finish a couple mods.the onestop mining mod,NORDIC school,EB herbalist and a deco pack.i did say it would slow down with some of these bigger mod sets.we did bring the food reserves up though it should be even higher.we begin spring with 38,000+.
     the biggest help to our food is being able to produce it year round.we don't need to just use farms and gain a huge reserve in the fall.our greenhouses help spread it out more.but the overall production shows we are near break even.the trading has helped.
    i don't like having the laborer count so high.i also wish i could get the housing up. to me work does not go as fast as it should considering there is soo many.and i certainly can't build houses without expanding food.
    someone mentioned building houses closer together,back when i was working on the plymouth farms.if i had done that,i would have pushed population higher than the food.the bannies in those extra houses would have no place to work either.even in the colonial village,1 house can work 2 fields.the other houses have to have work places.i normally like to have 2 workplaces per house,then add a couple extra houses to each village.this spreads the laborers out around the map.in theory it should balance the travel times and spread goods around to all the areas.
    this map has been played differently.instead of concentrating on balance,i have been pushing to build all the buildings.by now it is what it is.maybe back about year 50,i should have let a group of nomads go and got more control back.
      as it is,we have survived.we trade many items taking food and firewood.   the biggest challenge has been trying to figure out where to go next.though i have some ideas,the bannies work speed and needs dictate i work elsewhere.it will be interesting to see what happens next.

    i did take some time and ran a test to see how close to the top edge i could push things.debugged 2 canal sets and some buildings to see if the bannies would work the area.it did seem to function.it is a long ways to get there and will take time to clear and dig and build.

YEAR 88-89

      with our towns well stocked,we can now start construction of a castle.a mountain castle is planned in the north with a medieval town.it will take time to clear land and supply the materials for the castle.
    it may look like i jumped away from the colonial village.there is good reson to that,some of the houses require fancy housewares.i switched several production buildings to start stocking those up.the housewares has already been stocking for a few years.that is 1 thing with the CC production chains,there is so many items and many are needed to build different buildings.the mines themselves have to be dug several times before they are deep enough to be unlimited.each time requiring different materials to complete the upgrades.as supplies are stockpiled,we continue expanding and building.
    most of the year is spent clearing and laying roads out.the builders add a precious mine and jade quarry to the north's mining.while waiting for the castle to be constucted,they start on the medieval buildings.an urban bakery and market,a bathhouse,school and library,and an archeology center are completed in year 89.through winter,the huge mountain castle is finished.

    the main parts of the NMT mod are built except the medieval dairy,a couple small markets,and stonehenge.knowing the population boom that will come from all these houses,i may add RED's college.we will build more housing and probably add the meat processors to the town.we will contine to expand to the west and set up SLINK's markets to supply the canal sets.hopefully,we can grow and clear land that far by the 100 year mark.

         population 1644; 1111 adults,121 students,412 children in 410 houses.
our education level is 90%.we are very well stocked.we have survived and prospered. in 100 years,we have buit many mods 93 out of 109 .all but birchbarkcanoe,EB's irrigations*3,EB oil press,grassy roads,fountainLITE,iseeFIRE,KID's houseboats,KID's RH,marketpuzzle,NECORA's riffle,statue plus,NMT canals,more of KID's storage sheds,and CC.many of these have been worked on.

        even with the push on NMT,we still are short housing.we mainain at over 100 houses short and 300+ laborers.it functions fine and we aren't short on anything.
         i have covered over half of the map but there is lots of room left.the far north edge and northwest corner are open.there is a large space to the southeast of NMT town as well.i did leave room south of the colonial town for the higher grade CC buildings also.should be plenty of room to finish all the other mods.

      for now after much thought,i am going to drop down and work on the CC colonial buildings.as i do,i will send a crew or 2 to widen the roads and re-clear yards and ground around the towns already built.instead of stopping and doing a full map tour all at once,i then can keep expanding and building at the same time.

YEAR 104

       with the builders supplied through the winter,they can work on the central market,shops ,and continue expanding roads.the laborers head out to clear land in the renewable resource center.
      i should explain how tedious this clearing project is. in vanilla you can lay roads ,and i guess the bannies will remove trees and stones before they lay down the new road.with all the mods i have,that does not work. i have to clear an area,then let the bannies work it for a while.say a long stretch of road or a town. then i must go back over it and lay the road down right then. this way what is marked for removal stops new road being layed down with a tree growing on the space.otherwise,i lay roads and there will be rocks or trees,etc left in the way. it is tedious.usually i do try to lay raods 3 wide,1 of the dirt or stone,and then use a grass or the clear for the 2 sides.
the exception being i leave a 1 space area all around fields.this saves them being blocked and gives the bannies room to place harvested goods.
       with this map,i didn't make yards around all the buildings when each town was built. with the nat div mod the regrowth is different.some areas grow thatch instead of trees.plus it is handy to have the supplies of logs and firewood.i have used 3 wide roads for the most part. places like sherbrooke,where there is soo many houses built at once,or the production area,that is cleared and then buildings are added over time,there may be narrower roads.plus it gives me time to do the tour pics at the same time. it is easier to see things after i clear the trees.
        as fgall approaches,once again the workers go supply the builders and clear land for the CC town.

a town bakery,preservist,a city blacksmith,water tower,several markets and carts,and many houses.
       more is planned and already supplied to keep builders busy.there is room to the south to expand and grow.a penninsula to the northwest of the trade district has been held.originally it was planned for the zoo,but an indian village might fit better. there is a larger area northwest of sherbrooke that might work better for the zoo.

       ABANDONED,you mean the upgrades. i think,though it has been a long time since i did 1,when you upgrade the indian buuildings they become something else.not just in function but also looks.they become normal buildings then.

         by fall,a road is started and a 8x colonial textured gate. EB's material wharehouse will bring supplies closer.raised wooden marsh houses will help keep workers closer to the worksite as well.
       the housing construction went slower than i had hoped. overall though, i am confident i have a good plan.next year things should speed up.

       THE experiment was to build watermills along the far north canal.it depended on the water running below the ground that far.and then if the game would leave the deep voids if the canal pieces were destroyed.the water does not go that far so i will have to find a different spot for several mills.
      i also have a builder problem. they are busy stuck doing some of the production piles and garden decor pieces for the indians.i adjusted some outputs to help supply them ,but even with 50 builders i had none working on the canals.now i adjusted to 100 builders.we do manage to get the supply store and some marsh houses built.

Hi Brad, that canal looks very nice, I like the bridges and storage units.  It needs a few ducks.   ;D

YEAR 120-122

      took about 5yrs to build the 1st canal.we increased population by over 60 and added 17 houses.we send 2 workers to the canal trading post. this will bring in more food and keep the canl workers supplied.

       by winter,we have enough land cleared and flattened to begin work on a community. a school and office and rowhouse mini houses are already awaiting building supplies. the 6X trader is completed and moving goods.
       in year 121, we add a med clinic several houses.we expand the trading post and begin a long southern canal extension.

YEAR 122-124

       i spend a year adjusting the trading posts as the boats come in.some posts are specific about what they will trade

out.since our food reserve has dropped while working on the canals,i need to increase shipments.
       we work to take the canal 2 directions. the 8x NMT teture to the west and the 6x NMT south from the junction.to

help move the goods from the traders.we add a market puzzle square and a more storage.

YEAR 124

        i had to rebuild 1 section of the 8X canal.for some reason the bannies left a mound of dirt across by the trader.with the 6X i plan to build some mills along it.it will work nicely on the penninsula between the 2 lakes.
         we have a very bad outbreak of influenza that won't go away. it lasts all year and many have died from it.

YEAR 125 REVIEW

       population 2002;1543 adult,162 students,297 children with 99% educated in 482 houses.in 10 years of digging the canals, we have grown by just over 100 bannies and 31 houses.our food reserve has dropped by about 145,000. with all our trading,we maintain but the reserve is much lower than hoped.
    apparently,the greenhouse chain maxed out and has slowed the outputs.i did check them and increased the misc limits before.must be i checked it when it was functioning.our silk chain is over-producing mulberry leaf.even with the trade push our texile limit is maxed.the silk is used at the fort and our silver output slows that chain down.that is 1 of the chains that gives less outputs than resources it uses.silver is being used at the shipyard as well.i made several adjustments and raised limits.i also push extra stocks to the trade posts for storage.
        we need to complete 2 canals and do the 4x NMT textured.then the NMT mod will be finished.we continue with KID's RH houses and shed mods.soon we will be to the far northwest corner and begin to build the churches.

       WOW,the canals have taken time to excavate and build.there has been a lot of dirt and rocks moved in 10 years.by now, our doctors have finally got control of the influenza outbreak.everyone should feel better and return to work.we add 2 CC waterwheel mills to the 6x canal.1 for firewood and 1 for barley.a driftwood finder supplies it.2 reed growers will feed a bundler.

YEAR 127-129

        we have had several disease ourbreaks.one clears up and within a few months the next starts. went through TB,diptheria,and dysentary.we lost so many during the TB outbreak that all our cemetaries are full.
          though work has been slow,we add a small market and nordic wharehouse to the west to help stock supplies for the future church area.we finish all but 1 of KID's storage shed sets.we add more rowhouses and crop fields as well.we did add a brewery to the southeast corner near the mills.it doesn't use the hops that we have overstocked.the hops field was switched to eggplants,and the NMT brewery to hops and sorghums.
         by fall of year 128,we have built most of the canals. we need to locate and dig the 4x nmt set,6x 4way,and a 8x 3way to complete the NMT mod completely.

YEAR 129-131

     we try to speed things up.the workers clear trees and debris where the 4x canal will be dug out.this will send logs to the sawmill to help our firewood count.
      since the canal traders don't ship all goods,we make several adjustments. we change the goods shipped by several traders and double up workers at some of the CC trading posts and some of the NMT canal traders.we continue trading heavily for food and firewwood.
           to help increase our food,we begin a dock town to grow rice south of the canals.with all our trading,we are breaking even on food still.all my many adjustments have started to pay off though. the greenhouses do seem to be gaining again.
         though it has gone slower than i like,there has been progress the last few years.by the time the canals are finshed,hopefully we have firewood and food more stable.though we will need another school along the canals,i may need to go start housing and fields near the church area 1st.then come back add more to these villages.

    while the canal is being finished,i take time to list what buildings are left to go with the church area.there is plenty of rowhouses;diagnals and 2 stories,a tile-roofed mini set;a set of orange 2 wide sheds,an old towne market,and of course all the churches.
     we add the salt works to the canal dock village.EB's wharehouse market to the west will help move supplies for the churches.hopefully thsi will help move stone.apparently having to haul the stone so far is slowing down the canal construction.

YEAR 136

       Took us over 20 years to dig the canals.the population has increased about 200 and we did add 50 houses over those years.we have had many disease outbreaks come and go.with all our many goods,we have been able to trade for food and firewood.with some adjustments,we are now producing about as much food as we use.
       there is 2 small pieces left to finish. there is 2 fields being cleared and some building projects started.i am considering adding more markets to help keep materials flowing.we add another RH school and several markets.slowly work begins on the city gate to the church zone.

       our biggest issue is housing. workers live so far away that the travel time slows down land clearing.as i build houses,builders move closer and other workers, but laborers are still living on the other side of the map.there doesn't seem to be a solution except going very slow and continue to build houses and clear fields.

thanks guys. sorry it goes slow at times. this comp is having issues and i have to save more often and go back a lot. keep getting sysytem erros and no it isn't due to mods.i've already started saving files to flash drives.
    don;t mind the messes. it isn't designed to look good but i do think i have enough room to build every mod on 1 map.hopefully i can finisj off KID's rowhouses and build the food up in the church town.

YEAR 147

       I ran around and adjusted trading posts,the resource depot,and several workplaces. trying to use inventory we have. as is normal in bannished world,some items are overstocked and many under.we have too much flax but low on cotton.flowers and perfumes are high even with the trading.i have tried using the last canal trading post to move construction materials to the church town. market carts will move them closer to the church center.
       to help clear more land faster,we will build 2 tiny gardners to cut trees.then we will set up a FO gatherer to try to utilize the church grounds.hopefully with NECORA's new collection tech we will clear more than just trees and also be able to grow food in the space.this will set bannies to clear while others are clearing and supplying building projects.
      finallly by winter of year 148 the horse pasture is completed. more RH housing and storage sheds are also finished.as we continue to clear for more fields more markets are planned near the main town market.

YEAR 149

        to help our food production,we stop most of our ale production. we left root beer on and the honey mead and apple ciders.it will save most of our fruits and grains to food.we also adjust traders to use up the extra flowers and feathers.

                after several weeks of too many restarts and saving after every set of nomads,i believe i have nursed the game past whatever was causing errors.there is not much progress to report.with all the crashes, i just wanted to get to year 150 and let the builders catch up. building continues but very slowly. i do hope i can keep playing this map without much more frustrations.since it has been so long between posts,i will do a quick review.hopefully after this year,i won't have to hold my breathe so much.

YEAR 150 REVIEW

       WOW,that was rough to get past the last year.finally we made it to year 150.i adjusted the builders down to 50. every time i build houses, builders kick laborers out.this slows down progress. i do trade for about 30,000 food per year.as i expand it seems to maintain at that level.the firewood production has improved.the TOWNS survives and is stable.housing and food is behind.the goal of the church town was to finish building the rowhouses and build food up. we do need more food than we have space for fields.at least the 25 churches are layed out.
        to the southeast of church town,there is an island that a castle is planned for.though it will be slow,i think the best idea is to access that and use the area to build food up.if i use quay and dock housing,i should be able to get several crop fields. this way we aren't just producing rice and fish.there should be a CC mill left to grind the rice into flour as well.this will give the gardners time to clear land near the churches and the pastures to produce better also.hopefully, we will gain some speed by doing this.

Hi @brads3 I have had to do a little catching up on what I have missed.  Very impressive map, good job adjusting to changing circumstances.  I am thinking you must be getting close to reaching your goal of building all the buildings, so many nice looking areas throughout the map.  :)

Oh, that is a shame having error problems when you have come so far with the map. The must be very frustrating. I was hoping you had solved the problem.  Your goal is quite a massive undertaking, CC alone has many buildings. 

Those last 2 screenshots are really nice, the snowy one especially.  I wish you success.  :)

@brads3 I have been looking back through thread and wondering if you are using the Mini Buildings mod.  Isn't there a problem with town hall and trading posts because of 107 new flags?.  I had problems on a test map with it.  I am wondering if you are using the mod and if so, if that may not be the cause of your problem?
Title: Re: BRAD'S SETTLING of AMERICA SERIES: Towns #5
Post by: brads3 on November 11, 2017, 10:34:41 AM
i haven't noticed a problem with the mini TH. i do use CC compatability 1.07 mod. on the production chart there is numbers that do total for the new items but they are not tagged.they do list fine on the graph and inventoruy though. what problem did you have?
    as for older mods and the new limit flags, most mods function fine. the issue is really storage. i am glad EB made several storage options and NECORA's mods help as well.without those the thatch will fill the work piles and stop construction.most mods don't use the new flags anyhow unless you use CC. there is the thatch and a few others.RED's fodder comes with its own storage barn.

did you have RED trader fix mod enabled?that was suppose to solve those issues. if so then i would wonder if it was due to the iron ore difference and try the comaptability 1.07.

I don't recall if I had Red's Tp Fix or not.  I see on the mega mod list that mini buildings is included so the compatibility mod maybe what I need now before I have a problem.  I am starting a map using Necora's Pine Forest and I am thinking that it uses the new flags.  I am still in the process of choosing mods, I will add compatibility to the list.  Thanks Brad  :)

                                                      TOWNS REVIEW

mod adjustments:total overhaul,cleared registry.took all mods out and and put mods back in several at a time.
nat div dropped back to original version,added smoke shop, EB's wharehouse and natural irrigation,KID's harmonized plymouth set and houseboats.

goal was to build at least 1 of everything including "f" variants in the toolbar from all mods.only exception is to be the CC orchards that do not work.

starts with 13 bannies on a CC very large map.

      nomad arrivals:in yr 4,2 indians,yr  2 more,yr 15 8 settlers,yr 19 add 14 settlers,yr 22,22 more,yr 28,28 nmads arrive,20 in year 33,29 in yr 37,33 in yr 41,yr 45 add 23,38 added in yr 53. by year 60 with education near 50%,this town stopped accepting nomads.there will be heavey trading to keep up on food.about 140 nomads in under 60 years.

       this was a huge undertaking.there is a ton of building and expanding.it was a good map to showcase the many different mods with.tons of pics added to give other players a chance to see something different or a mod set they may not have known about.saly there was an error that stopped the map from being finished.i don't think it is game related as much as computer issues.by year 100, there are over 1600 bannies in 400+houses.90% educated but over 300 laborers.
      the map is saved but stopped at year 152.the bannies were trying to finish building the rowhouse sets and all the churches were layed out but paused.there was still a zoo,huge park,and several castles yet to be done.a couple mills,many CC higher grade houses,and markets were left as well.i would say 90% of all the mods in the toolbox were completely built except the churches. over 1700 bannies,almost 550 houses,100% educated.trading is taking in over 30,000 food itself.

     i have thought of using the debug just to finish this map off.i did talk to my computer guy before the holidays and he has retired.i do have about 5 saves to try to recover this map from.i was sick for 2wks since before my birthday to the new year.doc has since adjusted my meds and i am feeling better.finally yesterday took the girl-friend out to have christmas with her family before the sub-zero temps return.not trying to complain. just explaining why i am behind. i did want to get though these summaries before the new year.i don't like starting years this far behind.



mod conflict with duck hunter.probably due to KID's workplace mod. it is a give and take to the mod order. i had it higher in mod order to offset it with the bakery plus mod.that is a slight adjustment. i do have hopes of overhauling the list this year.i think i will hold out and see how RED's new project goes and what CC comes up with for modular sets as well.

        since i have some saves from this map,i do want to open a couple and take out some workplace production numbers.this will give a nice list of what the mod workplaces produce each year.might be good ingo for other players and the modders as well.
