@Goblin Girl the smith makes vanilla iron and steel tools, the tailor makes vanilla hide coats, wool coats, and warm coats.  Kid is adding his animal sheds to Old Town. They look great with wood and thatch textures.

@rkelly17 the stacked houses have families on each level, you chose to build 1, 2, or 3 levels.  They are intended for worker housing.

To match Red's ugly long URL, here are some images of the slugs I had in mind:

Warning: These images may contain gross and disgusting content, depending on one's view of slugs. Viewer discretion is advised.

Note: These include some snails. I guess Google doesn't know the difference.

I also noticed that, if you go down far enough there are some images of BC Rail Locomotives. That is because locomotives that have no cabs or controls of their own are known in North America as "slugs." Don't know why.

I like the two story houses. Is it two separate houses for two families or one bigger house for one large family? The three story looks a bit top-heavy to my eye, though it might work in the slum of a city if you had as street full of them. Red's three story Medieval houses could be the nice neighborhood and these could be the not-so-nice neighborhood. I also like the hostel in both wood and stone. This is very nit-picky, but a sign out over the door would really give them the look of a country inn.

@embx61, that is one beautiful quarry! I especially like the realism of the shelves of rock as the building stones are cut out. Just outstanding.

I'm late to the party but I also love these! 

Two things I would request:1. That your small smith also make wool, hide, and linen coats from flax, sort of a combo between your forest house workshop and your Plimoth Plantation workshop. 
2. A Dairy that matches the vanilla wood/thatch textures.  I wouldn't mind it if up to three workers could be assigned, but if you think it would be best with a lower number I could live with that.

I love all the house color & thatch options!  Like Zak, I can't imagine a number of housing options that I'd consider to be too many.  I love the stone quarry with the stone texture. 

Thanks for all your work!

I like quarry new texture a lot. As for a name I would prefer RK variant - Shining Rock.
Above all - I love the choice of roof colour on your houses. For me there is never enough different houses  in the game.
Splendid and fantastic work!

Chapter 3


  In late autumn we had an early frost and feared it would not be long before we saw the first snow.  We should have been heading west long before now but we did not have nearly enough water or firewood.  It was decided that we would remain here at our Rest Stop until spring.  We had plenty of hides for extra warmth and covered the openings of the wagons with them.  The cook fires bubbled with hearty soups and stews day and night, a tiny chopper made sure there was plenty of firewood.

  As you know, weary traveler, it was still snowing in early spring but already there were some wild foods growing and waiting to be collected.  As soon as the weather warmed we had more laundry on the lines and 2 more big water barrels by the stream.  We had enough coats and tools on hand now and the last of the wagon wheels were being repaired.  It was early summer, and we were all looking forward to resuming our journey west.  Everyone seemed happy and well rested as we loaded up the  wagons yesterday. The last of the soups and stews were eaten and the cookfires put out and pots stored away just this morning.   We have as much water as the barrels will hold and we have plenty of food, and we can collect more along the way.  The old potatoes from Smallville will be saved to plant a new crop someday.  The last of the barrels are being loaded onto the wagons and there's excitement in the air, we will soon be on our way.  The oxen and donkeys are being hitched up as we speak.  The donkeys?  What about the donkeys?  Flatulence?  The donkeys had flatulence?  They were tied up outside your wagon and the noise and the smell kept you awake?  Well, why didn't you say so to begin with?  Flatulence, you say?  Well, the donkeys are hitched to the wagons now and away from your wagon.  Maybe you can get some rest now.  The wagons are ready to roll, let's get going, weary traveler.
