Gatherer - Castle Rock X - Screenshot Blog
« on: May 08, 2017, 11:04:43 AM »
This is my first blog and it will be mostly just screens and a little text. I'm not a number cruncher so no long posts about production numbers and efficiency or elaborate stories about my baniminions' lives.

Also here are all the mods currently enabled:

 :) Hello and welcome to Castle Rock X :)

Map starting parameters. I'm running 1.0.7.Beta. Terrain type is from Plains mod by Jose Rios. It can be found in the download section.

Starter village and minimap. Even though I started on easy setting I only got one crop seed. I start with potato, peach, walnut and chickens.
As you can see I've already placed a rough blueprint for the NM Canal.

Salem's Lot. Year 6. A quick expansion. Removed parts of the pre-planned canal. Will place fishermen and storage docks there. Plus bridges and a trading post.
I really like this Natural Diversity mod. New trees are very pleasant to the eye.

Castle Rock. Year 8. Main town development. Bellman Lake to the southeast (upper right). Part of Lortz Lake to the southwest.

very nice, good planned. I'm a bit surprised, that you can afford so much stone roads at the beginning. I use to be short of stones.

More stone per rock mod plus manual gather orders.

I'm never stingy with roads in any of my towns. As goods are moved faster in the beginning it pays out in the long run.

@Gatherer nice to see your town and how you are placing the canal.  :)  So many mods enabled at once without major conflict?  Question, I don't see CC on the list, what is making the crop field look different?

I'm not using CC. Never have. Perhaps the crop field looks different because of Season FX mod. Or did you mean something else?

About conflicts...no crashes yet. I hope it stays that way. Certain chains not working? Don't know. But I'm not going to build all of them anyway.

Right now I wish I had waited a bit with this map. That way I could incorporate Mr. Red's revamped canals from the start. I sure hope they will be compatible with a savegame. :-\

@Gatherer oh, season fix, I don't have that mod.  I didn't think you used cc, I hope we continue to get separate mods from it.

I did not update my game yet but have quite a few of the updated mods. The trouble makers for me are town halls and I'm guessing seaports and any that have an item with new flag.  So I am limited to what new mods I can use.  I had my test map freezing up. 

You just recently updated, did you take your windata file out of the game before updating?  Did your load order change?  What a nightmare if I would have to reorder all those mods.  Why is there not a smiley face expressing horror?

Year 13

Castle Rock's chapel has been removed and a bigger church placed east of the town hall. Part of Salem's Lot also visible.

Haven and its docks under development. These dock pieces are giving me a bit of a headache as I've never tried them before.

oh that would be a very good test !
what if i disable the watermill... ( with a // and compile a test version) and you place it before NMT2.04... maybe you can tell me if it is 100% compatible and crash free :)

You just recently updated, did you take your windata file out of the game before updating?  Did your load order change?

I copied 1.0.6. to another drive and then updated the original one. After that I emptied the original (now 1.0.7.Beta) WinData file and filled it with all the mods I wanted for this map. Load order did change a bit and it changed again on its own once or twice since. I have added a couple of mods after the start of this map but some mods have switched places without me touching them.

Right now I wish I had waited a bit with this map. That way I could incorporate Mr. Red's revamped canals from the start. I sure hope they will be compatible with a savegame. :-\

That could be fun. Right now I'm behind on screenshot posting. Ingame year is already at 33 so the canal is already built. But for a test I can rebuild it.
