version 1.0 is now live.


testing has been limited,

the Advanced version can be used on Banished v1.0.6 or newer.

It is also recommended to play with The North for the matching Iron Ore industry.

This mod does not alter the natural resource of iron.

I'd appreciate ideas and suggestions on balancing.


**currently my candle maker in DSSV: Production is making the wrong kind of candles to be compatible with this mod & CC/MM, candles will need to be bought from traders.

Very excited to play with this!

I've had to AFK due to some RL stuff this past week but I'll be back in-game in the next day or two.  Hopefully have some feedback for you, shortly after.

Thank you!

Great to see this one released.

So the normal version is CC compatible and advanced is North compatible. Is the advanced version also CC compatible (and should it be placed above or below?) or is it totally incompatible with CC? Apart from compatibility with CC and The North, is there any particular reason to pick one version over the other?

Also, are the train tracks included or do we need Choo Choo for those?

I suppose the advanced version is compatible with CC. though if loaded above it would alter the production outputs of the iron ore, coal, iron, etc. If you want try it. But the normal version is still better for CC.

No, you will need RK's Choo Choo mod. there was no point in me making/releasing the same thing when RK's mod is compatible.

@Discrepancy very nice for the North & 1.0.6.  If you are still thinking of a deco version with tunnel & carts, could you add at least a piece of straight track to it so not to always have to use choo choo, please?   :)

Is this save game compatible?

I'd have to agree that self-contained mods are better. I don't use Choo Choo (but I will if I have to) but at the very least it would be nice to have all the track pieces in your menu along with the carts. Just put a credit in the pop-up description "Tracks made by RK" or something like that. But of course adding them in is more work, so I understand if you don't want to add the tracks to your mod.

This has become a great set. I tried it in game and it looks amazing. The version made to play in the North doesn't really fit in the limits. Coal is actually a Fuel there, ore follows the ore limit which is Iron technically and metals as well as charcoal and coke are materials (CoalFuel). But ok, it's a 1.0.6 flagging and with new flags it will fit better. I hope we will get the update to 1.0.7 soon.

Does this mean, that they don't work together?

I've just started a new game, where I wanted to test this mod in the North.

Hi @Discrepancy I decided to take this little gem on a whirlwind test tonight and I found a couple of things, seems to be about my load order, due to the little icon/sprite missing, as the items do work, when clicked on them.

I've attached a couple of screenshots. 

When I place the Blast Furnace at the top, over the storage mods, then it all works fine. 
It seems to be the DS Small Village - Storage mod which is the one with the conflict.
When I disable the mod, or put it below the Blast Furnace, it all works correctly.

No problem in doing this, but if there are others having the same problem it may be worth a note in the download pages.
I have not attempted this on the "Advanced" as I don't run Tom's "The North".
~ QE, I query because I like learning new things.

@QueryEverything , thanks for that.

I am aware of the issue.

As I was finishing the blast furnace, I realised that I still hadn't made my base community menu big enough... I hadn't included enough generic menu buttons.
So I added more, and this is what causes the empty menu buttons when any other DS mod that isn't DS Blast Furnace or DSSV Production beta3 is loaded above.

So load orders should be:

DSSmallVillageProduction.pkm
DSBlastFurnace.pkm
...all other DSprefix mods




This has become a great set. I tried it in game and it looks amazing. The version made to play in the North doesn't really fit in the limits. Coal is actually a Fuel there, ore follows the ore limit which is Iron technically and metals as well as charcoal and coke are materials (CoalFuel). But ok, it's a 1.0.6 flagging and with new flags it will fit better. I hope we will get the update to 1.0.7 soon.
Thanks.
Yes I realised that once I loaded it up with the north... I had completely forgotten about that, and was too impatient the other day to work out which limit was which and adjust everything.

@Nilla , I will try to put up an update within the next day.

No problem @Discrepancy
It most likely won't be noticed by most players if they put the most recent on top, I just happened to have my storage collection higher :) 

BTW - Love how the mod looks ingame :)  I have a lovely mining area being setup :D
