BRAD'S SETTLING OF AMERICA SERIES: Vicks #6
« on: November 13, 2017, 11:25:09 AM »
        Good morning.sadly, i had to move on from the last map. i did keep the last 5 saves. it seems like months since i logged anything.it did become a struggle for a while to try and contiue the map.the last 5 years were re-played several times to push past whatever fatal error hwas kicking me out.the last few weeks of it,i could get the map to play smoothly and think i was past it,only to get locked up again.the bannies still moved along without skipping.i still think it is more this computer than a problem with a mod.it was getting frustrating to do the same things each day only to get the same results. anyway, it is too quiet on here so i should try to wake the site back up.

        i tested some mods and added a few more to the list.i think there is 1 that might be in the mod order wrong.it is a minor 1,so i am not too concerned.most have been tested and moved.

mod adjustments 117 total,moved the bigger wheelbarrow mod to the top,added traders except all<doesn't seem to help much>
add multiple starts<we do not start with thatch on the map by using these>,below this i added the CC orchard forest mod<the version incluided with CC had issues due to mod conflicts.now we can control some of those with mod orders>,added KID's bakery for the greenhouses placed above CC tropical GH and both above CC,added marble quarry to work with the my precious and statues mods<this 1 may need to be moved around>,added soapiry and KID's storage carts,dropped all other KID's mods below CC<to give more ducks to the hunters>
keys: NMT is above CC to give better water outputs,do have icon glitches on EB's irrigation mods.

    should i go through the whole list of 117 mods and explain why i use them?? there has been new players so i guess i will.

banished 1.07 beta build 107212 yes i am probably behind a version.
MODS: in order from top down

bigger wheelbarrow-lets the vendors/merchants carry more,
traders except all-so modded tradingposts will except all goods including CC items. note: i am not convinced this helps or works on all modded traders,
RK vanilla TP for 1.07- a trading post fix to solve issues between 1.06 mods and the 1.07 items.YOU SHOULD HAVE THIS.
CC no smoke,no wild ducks,CC light rain-these mods speed get rid of graphics which should help give the computer some speed.the duck mod solves an issue where the hunters would hunt ducks more than deer,thereby overstocking you with feathers instead of leather.

KID's vegetable garden start-gives those seeds at map starts if using some settings
stop burning coal-stops houses from using coal to heat. be advised it does not mean the houses only use firewood.
residence fix-fixed a fatal error that happened sporadically with some housing.
more wood per tree,safer mines,unlimited mines, all self-explanatory

renewable resources2- adds "foresters" that respawn stone,iron,iron ore,and coal.
forget orchards-no need to cut and replant orchards,they also will produce fruit sooner.
immortal trees-trees don't die and fall over.
FLAX PATCH and PINE MOD-adds NECORA's pine mod set,trees,and gathering ability.also adds fur and pelts.
SEASONFX- gives a different texture to crop fields.
NAT DIV 1-adds thatch and meadows depending on start settings.changes graphics of many wild plants. be advised with this,you will need thatch for some construction including pastures.

MULTIPLE STARTS-gives different options. with an A&E start,you still do not have thatch meadows.
CC ORCHARD FORESTERS-set of hobbit-looking foresters that plant fruit trees or nuts or grapes.it is not a mixture of all in 1.comes with its own gatherer.
BLACKSMITH TOOLS-more tool options including stone,wood,steel and hardened tools. works with several smiths but not all.
BAKERS AND MILLERS-different styled buildings.
TJORKO MILL- adds a nordic  grain mill
BAKERY PLUS-adds many foods to the bakeries including pies and cakes. these bakery mods together allow the use of different grains for flour,bread from flour only,cornbread,etc. even rice can be used. mod order can be used to adjust outputs.

MINI BUILDINGS-very handy at start since the buildings are small and cheap. the townhall will attract nomads without needing a trading post.
NMT 2.04-this brings a ton of options. yes it is a 1.06 mod but it works without issue with the compatability mods added.
FLYFISHING,QUICK HUNTER-with these you can work without needing a buildingor dock.handy at starts.flyfisher does give trout not fish.
BRAD'S SMOKE SHED-tiny shed to smoke meats.
KID'S BAKERY AND GARDEN-adds greenhouses for a variety of crops.no fertilizer required. works as a cropfield but all year.
CC TROPICAL GREENHOUSES-uses bonemeal surplus to produce different fruits or vegetables.
MY PRECIOUS,MARBLE QUARRY,and STATUE PLUS-together add gold,silver,gems,etc and many decorative statues.the coins are used in a few places including the NFT fort parts.

DOMESTIC ANIMAL FIX-a CC mod ,without it there was too many DA's all over the map.
1.07 COmpataility- fixes issues of the new limit flags with older mods. EVEN WITHOUT CC,YOU WANT THIS MOD.better safe than sorry.
CC JOURNEY 1.75-brings with all the previous CC versions in 1.this mod is like anothjer game added to the 1 you have.
CC COMPATABILITY BUILDINGS-allows the use of older mods with newer mods.fixes issues where both buildings have a simialar name.
NOTE THOSE 3 MODS MUST BE IN THAT ORDER TO FUNCTION CORRECTLY.the 2 compatabilty mods should work and help without CC.

O'K, VICKS:
GOAL : to build a huge capital city and accept all nomads excluding RED's lighthouse<since i like building it for merchants to find my ports>. we will need a production area for the needed materials along the main river.east of the river,i can place foresters to supply the logs and firewood.any streams that we run into to the west will be terraformed flat.i haven't decided on the center lake yet.from the start point,i am going to run a road north-south. to the east of it will be farms and the city to the west.

map: Vicks.329747916,CC flat plains,large,harsh,disasters off,vagrants which gives a boardinghouse and huge stockpile and 5 families.

since we have greenhouses and have built several settlements already,we do have all seeds,orchards,and animals available.we will still need to trade for livestock however.if we get overstocked on anything,we can use traders to ship goods away as well.

       1 thing i do before i unpause and start the map,is reset some of the resource limits. i change the herbs to 1000,firewood to 500,increase the logs to 2000, and bump the tools and clothing up a click.on this map i did have to up the stone as well since it is already maxed.as i go along and build houses and production buildings i will continue to adjust those.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
YEAR 1
      i did locate a herd of deer for 1 quickhunter.the builder will work on a mini TH,woodcutter,and 2 workshops.the laborers have land to clear for 3 7x greenhouses.by late spring we have the 3 greenhouses finished. barley,peas,and strawberries are being produced. the workers can clear land for some roads.the builder is caught up by summer. 1 shop is working on leather coats,the other is making stone tools.this will conserve our iron and iron ore.while we use the year to build supplies and food,we build a small red barn.to avoid filling the main pile with firewood,2 of KID's sheds are built.
  since the deer herds are small and spread out,we send out a 2nd hunter.we move the quickhunters with the deer herds.

YEAR 2

      while the bannies are busy trying to build supplies up, i debate the center lake. i could use the lasnd for a meadow of thatch and fodder.a main road south of the starting point barracks would run through the lake.at the same time it is a large area to terraform.i also dislike terraforming the lake square.i finally decided to split the lake into smaller lakes and flatten most of it.this will give us a nice meadow in the middle.for now it leaves a rocky texture. if the thatch and fodder don't correct it,i do have ghosted  spaces to make it look better.
   going into year 2,we need to build food reserves. to speed up the greenhouses,we build 2 plymouth houses so the workers don't have to walk so far.we also start to clear south of the barracks for a main east-west road.before we build more houses, we build a mini fishing pier.then we begin work on wildwest housing. this will give us a land claims and post office.the laborers begin stocking materials for a pineapple hothouse and another barn.we leave 1 family in the boardinghouse to prevent nomads showing up until we can get more food stored.a cemetary is built as well.

YEAR 3

       now we expand and build the undertaker next to the cemetary.we will also add a school now that our population is growing.to keep everyone healthy we start on a medical clinic and herb garden next.we increase our tool,clothing,and firewood outputs and our food limit.deer seem to like the flat meadow area between the ponds. moving the quickhunters around has paid off well. there is over 3000 venison stored.

grass patches doesnt look the same on this brown ground to compare green ground. their yellow/olive  colors are made to make a seperation with the green ground, while this brown ground would have needed a more green color for the 3D grass

some of it might be. i tried using 2 different textures. i used verdant plain under the fodder and thatch and i tried using pastured for around those 2 ponds.the pastured squares loo strange. the verdants aren't as bad. i blended the western edge with the pastured and then stopped using it.these decor squares are ghosted so i can build on them later and the fodder will grow through them too. it was tedious to paint such a big area 1 square at a time with the game running.it didn't work trying to pause it.good thing with them is the snow covers them evenly so we don't see edges of each square.

maybe you just need to finish to paint everything left ouside the circles. probably the circled frontiers is stressing the look it has overall

but this game never handled well the terraforming cause it never replaces the ground texture.
