Wow, great looking town areas, especially the port. Nice designing @Gatherer and nice combination of mods.  But as great as the town areas are, I like that fodder field of Red's outside of town the best.  :)

thanks for the mod list. i didn't realize CC put the deco pak out.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Gatherer on February 21, 2018, 03:23:15 PM
I've found that the grass is too overpowered with this mod setup though. Apart from the areas worked by foresters there are almost no trees left on the map. I've used Natural Diversity mod before and had no such problems. Something just isn't right but at the same time with the absence of trees the game runs very smooth.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: brads3 on February 21, 2018, 05:14:11 PM
does the map start with less trees or are they dying off? i have heard after 100 yrs or so the maps can look barren and be all grass. i use the immortal tree mod. i havent gone through your mod list yet. have doc appointments rest of the week but hoping to look at it soon.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: brads3 on February 22, 2018, 02:52:40 PM
be advised MM deco pack does not work without CC. i did file a request to them for 1 that will.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Gatherer on February 22, 2018, 03:19:38 PM
In what way does it not work? So far all the building resources not available through other mods are brought by merchants. I'm also using CC Transport, CC Stacked and CC Docks mods.

Other than that there are a few blank dot icons. So far I've found 3 and click tested one without crashing. So in this one instance it is just a mising icon problem. Haven't tested the other two yet.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: brads3 on February 22, 2018, 04:31:10 PM
so you aren't using a main CC like the mega or journey? hmm strange i wonder if i had the compatability buildings mod turned on.when i click the deco icon, i get a fatal error did it twice.

Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Gatherer on March 09, 2018, 03:44:03 AM
Thanks guys and girls. :)

There are already some small problems though. The main big city will be built with Azem Ocram's modern looking rowhouses. Because of this most of the existing schools in many mods are too small (not enough capacity). I will build Mr. Red's college but for the most part I am forced to build 2 schools close together for every city block. Visuals are a problem on its own.

The second problem are shops and markets. For a big city the ordinary markets are not visualy suitable though I am forced to use some. Necora's Sherbrooke market is the best option here as it is a building with actual walls and a roof +  a high storage capacity. And it also comes in 3 different textures.

What is needed here is modders coming together on a group project in creating some schools and department stores with a high capacity that are suitable for big cities:
- Schools: 4x6 to 6x6 size (60-80 students) + 4x5 to 5x6 size (40-60 students but with the option for lean-to additions for 10-15 additional students)
- Department stores: Edible and inedible food, herbs, tools, clothes and firewood. 5x6 to 7x7 size.

1 schoold and 1 department store from each modder and all compiled into a single .pkm file.

If you dream, dream big.

I hope I'll get to the end. Even with almost no trees on the map the game is starting to lag due to all the deco stuff.

I'm using the latest NatDiv with fix against the trees dying out but it doesn't seem to help. The grass is very aggressive and I have to keep clearing large swaths of land. At least it keeps the fuel count high.


that is decorated.nicely done.

Thanks. The modders sure did an amazing job creating all these deco toys to play with.

Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Gatherer on March 31, 2018, 04:02:06 AM
At the moment I have to buy ~10 thousand units of food per year to keep up with demand. I'm selling mutton, smoked fish, leather, wine, mead, herbs, lumber, coke, iron ore, logs, iron and bricks.

The city would have been built up more by now if I didn't have to worry about food. But it's fun and keeps me interested and I have enough time to think on how to develop it further.

I was actuall trying to build a T-junction irrigation canal but the water in those T pieces doesn't flow correctly for what I had in mind.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Gatherer on April 02, 2018, 01:25:33 PM
And now a little something about this current game.

The Big City: Castle Rock XII
The idea was (still is) to build a big city supported by smaller towns and villages. There are 10 main city districts planned: 8 residential plus 1 cathedral and 1 railway district. These districts will be separated from other communities with NMC canal on west, south and east side and with irrigation canal on the north side. There will be long and wide avenues and streets separating each district.
The Old City is on the east side across the canal.


Food dilemma:
In the long run I want trading to cover ~15-20% of yearly food needs. I'm not sure if that is feasible though. Just recently I have had a very bad luck with the merchants. For more than a decade there were on average perhaps 4 merchants per year bringing any type of food to my 8 trading posts. And since the merchants come more than once a year per TP you can imagine my frustration. Really, really bad luck. >:( There's too much seed and livestock merchants. >:( What I needed from them I have already purchased (except milk cows but I'm deliberately waiting with this purchase).

If some modder could produce a small standalone savegame compatible mod that disables seed and livestock merchants that would be greatly appreciated. ;)


I admit that some of this food problem is of my own making. :-[ I don't like long inventory lists in my towh halls. And because of this I only buy food that I have seeds for or food that comes from the forests. Seed purchases have stopped more than 80 years ago.

These are the only food items I buy and/or plant:
- apple
- bean
- lettuce
- maple sap
- maple syrup
- game
- honey
- wheat
- carrot
- peas
- tomato
- grape
- fish
- fiddlehead
- cranberry
- corn
- chanterelle
- blueberry
- mushroom
- onion
- pear
- squash
- cabbage
- pumpkin
- turnip
- pepper
- rice
- potato
- roots


Conclusion:
At the moment I need to get the overall food count up. I've started expanding even further southwest and with that the planning for city district expansion has undergone some change and delays. Currently the city and the southern village form L shape and I'm forced to build that empty corner first. This will shorten travel distance for my people and also bring much needed workforce closer to where it is needed.

I guess the no seed from @RedKetchup will work, at least if it's vanilla Tp you're using. I don't know if it's somewhere more official as well, but here it is. http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?topic=2303.msg46919#msg46919

Thanks but I'm not using any vanilla TP's. I have so far: 5 canal TP's, 1 jetty TP from Necora, 1 jetty TP from CC modular pack, 1 large TP from Kid and 1 DS TP from his mining mod.

They don't fit on the canals. The big city is surrounded by canal on three sides and there will be irrigation canal on the fourth side. Some 40-50 tiles north of the irrigation canal is the main river.

Northeastern part of the Big City. I needed more food but any new housing development is now on hold. Those paused buildings will have to wait.

Thanks! It's still a long way to go. I have experienced some crashes while saving so I had to start playing with graphic settings set to medium (I only set them high for screenshots now) and also began to close all UI windows before saving. So far it works.

I've also decided that it is time to purchase some walnut seeds (haven't bought any seeds in almost a century). Hopefully this will allow me to save some precious smoked fish for trading.

@Gatherer , beautiful city!  I particularly like that small hamlet on the southern shore with DS's Bryggen TownHouses.  I like those buildings but they don't go with many of the other available houses I also like.  I need to make some "hamlets" like you did with mostly one style of building.  I have been doing too much of trying to make my whole town match in style, but of course, that can't work with using all the available mods.

I may have reached the limit though. :(  More often than not the game crashes while saving. All graphic settings are set to low; reflections off; filtering bilinear, all other applications closed; internet connection disabled when playing; all update notifications off; restarting pc before every game so nothing unnecessary is being opened...

Planning ahead is severely limited because of crashes.

I will try to continue but I may be forced to shelve this big town and start building small again. I have a 32-bit OS and that means it is limited in RAM usage.

I'm very happy, that you can go on with this lovely settlement; a whole country with different villages and towns; all in different styles, all beautiful and fitting well to eachother.

Even if I have no talent to build something like this, I know how it feels to have to give up a large settlement you worked on for a long time, just because the computer doesn't play along with you. I suffer with you and cross my fingers, that you find a way to go on a little longer.

Post by: Gatherer on April 21, 2018, 10:14:48 AM
Thanks for your support @Nilla and thanks to all the other members but I have decided to shelve this town for now. I have copied all the files and mod load order to USB drive. Perhaps when I buy a new pc with more RAM and 64-bit OS I will continue.

This topic will remain active as I will soon start a new map. Just need to cut down on the number of mods first and reshuffle them a bit. And I need to find a suitable map seed.

So for the last screenshot of Castle Rock XII, here is what should have been...

Just a small update: Today I've started to remove excess mods from the windata folder. Some I've never used and don't intend to, others were obsolete 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 versions. So far I've dumped 39 mods and re-shuffled the others a bit. There was a conflict of not showing a dairyman profession but that was fixed. Right now I'm trying to find a suitable load order position for MegaMod Deco Pack so that I can dump a few more standalone deco mods without losing icons and causing crashes.

Castle Rock XIII


Year 1: Got a nice bend in the river and access to a lake. I start with pepper, squash, pecan, plum and chickens. The last three items will not be used at all. Chickens will be left to die off. Preplanned the NMC Canal. The area between the canal and the river will house the main town.

Year 5: Village is expanding. Slowly building up food stocks, stone and iron ore. RK's Old Blacksmith is invaluable since it can process iron ore to iron.

I've cut 43 mods. Should be 44 though since upon starting Castle Rock XIII, I realized NMT 3.0 Multi story housing doesn't fit on NMT 2.0.4 markets. Can't drop it now or else risk losing this town to crash.

MegaMod Deco Pack is a huge beast at ~750MB. It should have been broken apart imo. I only use/will ever use just a tiny fraction of it.

you can still use both, use a 2.0 multilvl when there is a market, and use a 3.0 when the 1st floor is a residence.

Year 11: I've relocated the school and added clay chain. The area north of the future canal has been cleared. With the amount of iron ore collected and many patches still on the ground I reckon there will be no need for mining for at least 30-40 years.

Just wanted to say that I've loved looking through all these images and seeing how your previous city grew and your changes for this new one. I've spend the last year playing without any of the main tech progression options - avoiding large-scale manufacture, anything that needs 'building supplies', and even minimising roads and anything in a straight line! I've kept small communities jumbled around local village-level production. So looking at your images was a huge reminder of all the different things this game can do! I actually just started a new game last night (my previous personal challenge became unplayable) and while i've started with my typical non-linear design I think I might change it up! Maybe once I start trading and get some seeds I'll change my hunter-gather community into a planned urban centre ;)  Thanks for sharing.

Even with the latest version of Natural Diversity the trees are still dying out. I suspect it might be because of EB's OrchardELTreesOverride Mod. Anyone else have some other theory?

 doubt it is caused by EB's mod. there was talk of this issue when you get near 100 years.you can check KEVIN's logs on the CC NAT DIV page.should be near the last page. over abundance of blueberry and trees dying off was noted. i use the immortal tree mod so they aren't suppose to die.you can add the new dense forest mod with it. i have not jad that issue with the original ND mod using the immortal tree with the pine mod.
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Voeille on May 19, 2018, 07:57:42 AM
I donít think you need immortal trees if you decide to use my dense forests. I set the trees to live 64 years instead of 5 after maturing, and they reseed fast enough to naturally create a maximum density forest (which should be reached after 10-15 years I think). For all Iíve noticed it affects orchards too, Iím 32 years in now, and none of my pear and chestnut trees have fallen yet.

Then I don't know what could it be. I have the latest ND mod with the fix against trees dying out. The same happened on my previous map. The only mods higher than ND that have to do with trees are EB's orchard override and Pine Set.

Smoked fish made by Tom's smoking shed cannot be sold at all. The worker UI window keeps saying he's working but the station has no materials sign on top. There is no mead option so I can't sell that either. So far I've been selling fur and logs. Log count goes down real fast so you need a high log production. But the coins accumulate fast and in great numbers. They're valued at 1 but you can get many thousands per year. The coins follow a textile limit.


@RedKetchup

Any chance you could upgrade this little mod to 1.0.7. with the new flags, perhaps changing the coins to follow Custom6 (precious), adding mead as an export item and making smoked fish universally compatible if possible? Oh, and fixing the ghosted railway bridge to sit on the centre of tile?

No pressure though. ;D ;)

One of my next plans is to remove the potato field and replace it with two of Kid's greenhouses to grow turnips. I will also relocate DS glassmaker and RK old blacksmith to the south of the canal. DS fishing dock will be moved across the river and placed on the tip of that small peninsula. And I'll probably squeeze a small cemetery and a mini forester on the emptied space.

I love your town, @Gatherer !  It's so carefully and beautifully laid out. It's made me realise how mundane and dull my towns look and made me vow to try harder with the aesthetics.  Do you add the decorative items as you go along or do you build a specific area first and then go back and add the deco?

I've always found much the same thing. At some point around 6-700 citizens 10X and 5X start to look much alike, though sometimes I think that 5X actually works better because the game isn't trying to run at 10X.

I mostly build the area first or at least place down paused buildings and then add deco stuff. As you can see from the pictures there are also built up areas still lacking decorations after several decades.

Post by: Nilla on June 21, 2018, 09:31:43 AM
I love the Bryggen houses and have tried to use them in a city builder aspect, to make a tight medieval kind of town, that Bergen is in real. There's more of these kind of houses behind the famous Bryggen front of Bergen, with narrow streets and courtyards. But I haven't really succeeded. So please use the Bryggen houses. I would very much like to see, how an expert like you deal with them. Besides, I find the other grayish houses more suitable as raw houses in an industrial/mining settlement, but of course, I guess, that someone like you can make something beautiful out of them, too. :)

@Nilla, you mentioned Bergen? Are you from near there? I only ask because up until  recently I worked for Rolls Royce and we had a large plant in Bergen that I had to speak with frequently so I got to know several very nice people from there.  Small world!

No I'm not. But I have been there a couple of times and know the town a little bit. But Rolls Royce has a plant in the town Kristinehamn as well. That's in my neighborhood. As far as I know, they make motors for ships.

Year 115:

New village in the making. I planned to have no food producers in this village but this is Banished and plans usually mean nothing to banniminions. Especially with a 30 thousand food deficit per annum. So there will be a wide variety of jobs available here. We will mine, farm, gather, hunt, cut trees and firewood, fish, collect honey and brew mead, trade, produce tools, distribute goods via markets,...

Another view of the northern village. As you can see the school area is still not finished. I also want to replace these two cropfields but have no idea with what. Well...at least not with more houses or greenhouses.

Another thing for @kid1293 to ponder: Is it possible to create a "light" version of rowhouse mod with only the orange and this greyish roof textures? :-[
Title: Re: Random images from Castle Rock maps

To make a light version of rowhouses is not something I look forward to.
Thousands of lines of code spread out over more than 40 files will have to be deleted.
Maybe it could look tempting on a dark winter night but not now. :)
Sorry!

And more - You want those two textures in a light version. If someone else wants only
wood roof or thatch roof, do I make a light version 2?

Log depot is constructed and jetties extended with a few DS and CC deco boats thrown in for good measure.

I'm thinking of expanding DS quay pieces from the log depot to the stone road and build a DS fishing bridge to connect with the other side of the stream. There will be a new forest node there with some hunters and gatherers. First I need some new houses along the road between the log depot and firewood cutter. And then two greenhouses behind them.

Year 126:


@brads3 et all

About ChooChoo version 2.0 mod: It is a 1.0.6 mod. Compatible with NMT 2.04 and Training Camp 1.0 mods.

It can be downloaded from here - - > http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=181 (http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=181)

Mod contains four export stations: You export in batches and with each batch of products you also export 1 unit of logs (intended to mimic a crate/barrel in which these products are stored). In exchange for products you receive coins which are valued at 1. The coins follow the textile limit and with an ample supply of export goods they can accumulate quite fast in many thousands. At one point I had over 35 thousand coins in storage.

Utility Export - Vanilla (ale, firewood, herbs, iron & steel tools) and NMT (beer, carbon steel tools, stone tools and wooden tools).

I'm exporting iron tools here. Sadly, mead can not be exported.


Material Export - Vanilla (coal, iron, stone wood (logs) and NMT (bricks, clay and roof tiles).

If you plan to export logs as I do on this map you will need a very high log production and Kid's Log Depot built nearby. Originally I only had 1 Log Depot built but it wasn't enough so I've built a second one. Both are marked with blue stars on the picture.


Textile Export - Vanilla, NMT and Training Camp (TC) textiles and clothes.

I'm alternating export between leather (vanilla) and fur (TC), depending which is in stock at the moment. Note that I'm not using TC mod on this map but I can still sell fur from Necora's Pine mod.


Food Export - Vanilla, NMT and TC foodstuffs.

I wanted to export smoked fish that are marked under NMT but I couldn't. Probably because I'm using Tom's smoking shed instead of NMT one. Perhaps it would work if Tom's smoking shed was placed above NMT 2.04 but I'm too lazy to try. So I switched to exporting venison instead.


There are also two F-variants of Train Engines. With these you can buy Vanilla, NMT and TC products and food using coins. I'm running two train engines. On one I'm alternating import between apples and pears while the other is importing wheat.

 (http://shrani.si/f/2o/I2/246gcmQk/castle-rock-xiii-year-12.jpg)


Other stuff includes various train wagons marked with numbers as follows:

1 - Goods wagon (herbs, tools,...)
2 - Food wagon
3 - Material wagons (coal, iron, brick,...)
4 - deco push cart
5 - Cabooze wagon (acts as a house)

There is also a Passenger wagon that acts as a nomad attractor but I Haven't built it.


Also included are bridges (working and deco) and tunnels. Bridges are 2 types: for rivers and NMT Canals. The deco ghosted bridge on the picture is bugged. As you can see it is not centered on tile. The rails themselves are road-buildable while the trains and wagons all come with their own rails included in their models. What I miss are some ghosted rail pieces to properly connect trains and wagons with normal rails in some places.


Hope this was helpfull and will convince others to try this little mod. It is not perfect and is in need of an update but it gives and alternate way to trading which makes it fun and enjoyable.

Post by: Gatherer on August 06, 2018, 01:31:46 AM
Looking forward to see what you come up with. ;)


To continue on the mod functionality:

There are both pros and cons to this type of trading. It is up to the player to find balance and make it work to his/her benefit depending on the current map situation.

Pros:
1 - Trading is done automatically. All you have to do is select which products to sell and buy.
2 - Trading is continuous throughout the year. No waiting time for merchants to appear.
3 - Coins generate in many thousands and those not used by train engines can also be used to buy stuff through trading posts. After my previous post I've switched from exporting iron tools to steel tools. Now I'm exporting logs, steel tools, leather and venison. For the last couple of years the export stations generate ~25 thousand coins per annum.

Cons:
1 - You will need a very high production of export goods you wish to sell. Especially those which are also used by your citizens. For example, I'm currently operating 8 Necora's forest towers (3 foresters each) and 3 Mini Foresters from the Mini Buildings mod (1 forester each). These supply logs for construction, lumber yards, firewood cutters, export, blacksmiths...
2 - You will need good logistics system in place to move export goods to the export stations. Kid's Log Depots for logs and many other specialized markets and warehouse markets (Tom's Nordic Warehouse, DS Industrial market,...)
3 - Unlike with trading posts, you can only export and import one type of product at a time. Provided you have sufficient production you don't have to worry about exporting. It is best to focus on one product from each export station and only export that. It is different when you import stuff. You may need several products at the same time or perhaps some special construction materials that you don't want to produce yourself. You either have to micromanage depending on current needs or build many train engines. You may not have landspace available for that depending on map size and type.


As I've said before it can be a very good alternative to riverboat trading and with a high production of coins you can buy more food through train engines and trading posts that you could generate through farming and fishing on the same space.


Cheers!

Just food for the brain.
With these function RK has given us, it could be done on limited space, type a market.
It would be a market full of activity and it could liven up a town.

Post by: Gatherer on August 06, 2018, 04:07:42 AM
Oh, I'm not complaining about space needed. I was actually surprised it took so little space when the railway area was finished. I expected to use more so I had to put that deco walled forested area in-betwen the town and stations afterwards.

But it could be a fun challenge on small mountain maps if one is not using flatten terrain mod.


P.S.: Still hoping you'll do an update in the future and also add some specialized storage to go with it.

Welcome to Castle Rock XIV.

Map seed number: 684 422 595
Map Size: Large
Terrain: Peak's Lakes (RK EC)

Starting seeds and animals: cucumber, carrot, apple, blueberry and leghorns

I will not plant cucumbers and blueberries, leghorns will be left to die out.


Year 1:

Overview of starting village and surrounding area. The hill to the west will be leveled to allow expansion.

Area across the river to the south. A future mining and industry centre (sand, clay, coal and iron ore extraction, iron smelting, tool making, glass and bricks manufacture).

Post by: Gatherer on October 07, 2018, 04:14:23 AM
Year 5:

One child became adult within first 20 seconds of the game, nothing I could do about that. By clearing the area to the west I gained significant amounts of stone and iron ore. Bit difficult to obtain enough leather though, deer are scarce and fur collecting erratic. The village is growing ok though. There is enough food for everyone.

looks great !!!! like it ?

It's quite nice actually. I love the terrain colour and the various industry chains. Also the various animals make it a good challenge to secure enough leather at the beginning. But I will probably switch to RE EC Light for the next map. There's just too many housing options here that I don't need and will not use.

Question: Do you have plans to include first floor houses with an underpass like there were in NMT 2.0.4.? The ones that you could build 2nd and 3rd floor above?

It would be great if multi floor homes were separated from this mod and offered each texture as standalone. I only ever build them in sandbrick texture and would save a lot of MBs this way.

More shore terraforming. I will extend DS quay pieces here and build a small hospital from one of Kid's mods on the left. Eventually all the small colourful houses and the house cluster above the port will be replaced with more sparsely built DS Bryggen houses.

I have what I believe is the latest MegaMod 8.01 and can't find that item.     It's not in the themed sets/choo choo set and it's not under DS's railway decorations either.    Maybe it was in MM at one point and removed due to a conflict or something, or a separate MOD the guy in video was using.

i agree with you , the white house is heaven of meshes.
go in your option, and check the keybindings. you should be able to take sceenshots without UI!
they are not necessairly created in same screenshot folder as the steam screenshot folder. and they can be .BMP also (possible)

now you start to replace the crops by greenhouses ... how do you compare crops versus greenhouses ? what you can tell us about this subject ?

I used to be able to have screens without UI bar. The last time it worked for me was in Castle Rock X town. I've tried rebinding keys many times since then and no cookie. :(

I like how the greenhouses need a constant input of resources (water and fertilizer) to generate food. Without it I would find the food output numbers a bit overpowering. And a smaller size footprint for more food per tile is always welcome.


But the best part is that the botanists don't wander off after harvest, because there is no end to the harvesting. ;D  I can select multiple land clearing projects at once during late autumn or winter season and have no fear missing the planting of crops in spring as is often the case with ordinary farmers. I also use Kid's greenhouses that have a farmer profession assigned but since the work is never finished I never experience any food output loss with them either. If they never stop working they can never miss the planting. Win-win situation. 8)

Year 98


Due to population drop I don't have to worry about producing or buying extra food and building more homes. So time is being spent decorating the colourful village. DS village barn and Necora's food cellars are also planned for construction on the empty spot next to the village school.

Added some more greenery and a small baker behind the house at the centre of picture. And I still need to finish decorating the ground on either side of the irrigation canal.

I've decided I will end this map in the summer of 125. And will post screenshots taken using the zoom hack. I will post them in several parts with each part focusing on different area.

Year 104


I had to close some mead brewers and food producers. Almost all available food storage was at its full capacity due to population decline. To pass time I finally decorated the irrigation canal.

Thanks! Not long now and I'll have to say goodbye to it. I don't want to expand it any further than this little extension here.

Next town will be smaller. Not a town really but smaller villages. With much less deco stuff.

DS Old Grammar School in the Bryggen village. If you look closely at the roof you will notice there are actually two schools partially overlapping each other. Their footprints include lots of road tiles that made it possible.

It's a bit difficult taking such close screens next to taller structures as there is always some wall in the way or it disappears completely and you end up inside an empty house.

Year 1


Overall plan is to create smaller connected villages and towns and to spread across the lake. NO BIG TOWN as in previous maps. Mr. Red's 3-story houses will not be used. Instead I will use Slink's wooden 3-story houses for some of the smaller worker's settlements.

Starting village. Yes, it's an easy start. :-[  Plenty of stone around but little iron ore. I guess I'll have to start mining earlier than normally.
(http://shrani.si/f/21/H0/4rdUrZen/castle-rock-xv-year-1-00.jpg)
 (http://shrani.si/f/21/H0/4rdUrZen/castle-rock-xv-year-1-00.jpg)
Across the stream to the south I will build mainly a log and lumber producing village using DS Fulbert housing and DS Timber Mill as the main mods here.
(http://shrani.si/f/2h/5Z/T1iVDsk/castle-rock-xv-year-1-00.jpg)
 (http://shrani.si/f/2h/5Z/T1iVDsk/castle-rock-xv-year-1-00.jpg)
Northern area will be the location of a small food producing village primarily using Mr. Red's greenhouses. I will keep an eye on how much fertilizer the bisons produce to see if any fodder farms and stables are actually needed. A small TP from one of Kid's mods is also planned here.
(http://shrani.si/f/3t/HF/2srVvJBT/castle-rock-xv-year-1-00.jpg)
 (http://shrani.si/f/3t/HF/2srVvJBT/castle-rock-xv-year-1-00.jpg)
I want to reach the land in the upper right corner of the picture and build DS Trade Merchants docks there. For this I will have to build two small islands plus some bridges from DS Dock Set. One island will also produce some foodstuffs. On the other I will only build Kid's lighthouse. These trade docks are a longterm goal. If I can reach the land to the east before year 30 I'll be very happy. ;D

Restarted the map twice with school as the first building project. One child still became an adult before it was finished. Oh well. It's the usual start for me in all other aspects with lots of stockpiles everywhere and more planned. First forest cluster is producing and bannies are also doing some quick hunting near the lakeshore using Tom's hunting mod.

Four families have already settled in the new village. They're only producing logs at the moment. All the rest are either working at the market, school or as builders. Town hall will be moved a bit closer to the log depot.

20 bisons produce 320-340 fertilizer per annum. So far bannies have collected ~2600 buckets of the smelly substance.

Fulbert village grows. As you can see there will be two curved rows of houses. Need to place a school in the second row too. I've also started to mine for iron ore to not have to worry about manual harvesting.

With high food reserves bannies can turn all their attention to construction for the next couple of years. Truss bridge will connect the docks with another small island that will be raised from the lake floor. Kid's riverboat market will provide goods for this part of the dock town. Travel time for builders was shortened somewhat by erecting four jetty houses but demands for workers are still higher than the local workforce can provide.

Unfortunately we only have the flatten terrain tool to raise ground and it leaves an ugly and tall shoreline. And the raised lake floor has a brown texture. So we are forced to cover all that up with shore walkways, quays, jetty structures and lots of deco stuff. I'd be willing to pay good money for a map editor that would allow creation of natural looking islands.
Title: Re: Images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: Abandoned on January 09, 2019, 06:13:47 AM
Yes, that would be nice to have islands or even just one big map-size island.  :)  I have not done any experimenting with terrain tool.  I only used it twice when building RK canal.  I see that raised area, your arrangement of the jetty and dock pieces make it look quite natural.  I wonder if deco tile pieces could be made to match the grass texture, maybe that would help.  :)
Title: Re: Images from Castle Rock maps
Post by: brads3 on January 09, 2019, 07:18:02 AM
there are some roads that work. might not match the terrain perfectly.a verdant road is close. they can not be built on.the 1 that will let you build is a decorative square but then you will have to paint the ground 1 tile at a time. to raise the terrain and give a sloped look there is NECORA's riffle
 mod.takes some practice to get used to it. it also is 1 tile at a time thou. very tedious project. the roads do work to fill in after you built ,but then no trees or plants will grow back.

the decorative tiles come with the CC.i use the grassy road mod for a verdant grass.

i tried to get you some pics of the riffle mod. found an odd quirk with the nordic landscape mod. it turns the rocks under the water to lush grass when terraformed.kinda hard to see things with this grass and not the rocky dirt terrain.
   
      the riffle mod has a 25,50,and 75% of a 1 tile drop. plus they are sloped not an abrupt, harsh change. it isn't draggable like the old terrafoprm mod though. it has water tiles but they don't match the lakes or river textures.plus it has mist decorations for around mill wheels. does give you some more options for your dock towns and the side banks for the islands.

That looks really nice. The slopes can be covered with jetties and dock houses here and there but we would need some deco trees and bushes at lower height. I just might give the riffle mod a try in one of my future games.

in those pics i did ast night,i think i sloped it a 25,50,and a 75.with the riffle and the CC,you have options that woud sti slope but use less tiles.it also will give you a tool to make curved banks. where is EB? maybe he can whip up soe deco road tiles that would work at the -1 or -haf tile depth. then you could have grass or rocks or sand etc.EB has some beach deco pieces already set lower than vanilla.

       the nordic mod i have only done some quick tests so far. with the RK,the pastures turnedx into a flourescent green square with no grass texture. to solve that i put the nordic below the RK,which would be below the pine mod. far as i know everything worked as far as trees and RED's animals. it does give you a northern cimate still. the nordic mod grass brightens the RK terrain.REDs terrain loads and the game uses the nordic grass to fill in dirt patches.i did like what i saw before yesterday.  did not expect it to change the terrain on terraforming.

       i really like the mod manager. when i find glitches or odd mod conflicts, the mod manager lets you change the mods now.granted i wil have to test the changes later but the game is set.RED has done so many changes that i'll be testing for months to set mods up again.

A ghosted piece actually has a 0,0 point as reference. That's the peak

No merchant was accepting lumber, herbs and bricks at retextured vanilla TP. So it has been replaced with two from DS Trade Merchants mod.

There are still many closed or paused icons hovering over buildings. Still not enough people living on this side of the lake to fill all the jobs needed. Decision was made to build another DS Fulbert village inland to provide builders needed to complete the docks.

flattenGround = true is the default. So even without it, a ghosted item creates such peaks in water or holes in mountains. Some time ago I had to fix my flag poles and benches and had to add an explicit "bool _flattenGround = false" @Discrepancy.

It also happens with some pieces from @embx61  and @RedKetchup

But of course these don't naturally belong on the dock jetties anyway.

Year 49


@Discrepancy @elemental and others who might have followed the discussion in the DS Trade Merchants topic. I think I might have another explanation to disappearing sheep event because it happened again in year 48 and I had to buy additional animals. The pasture can only hold five sheep maximum. Which means there is very little chance for an offspring before one of the older sheep dies. Over time this probably leads to an extinction level event on this pasture. The pasture is just too small and there's no going back anymore. :-[  I will keep it and buy extra sheep when needed.

Kid's beekeper from Workplace Mod. Planters for the flowers are from MegaMod Deco Pack.

The beginings of the second DS Fulbert village. There will be two rows of housing again but with a bigger church than before and no school. Students will have to visit the one on dock town island. There's also a doctor's house from DS Bryggen mod. I went full overboard with deco here.

Closeup on the eastern part of dock town. Bannies will build several jetty houses here and perhaps some house boats.

Two deco ships are planned to be placed in this anchorage.

Cabbage field next to the DS Crest Blacksmith, last seen in year 36, has been replaced with Kid's greenhouse producing peas and a pear orchard. And lots of deco grass and bushes have been planted as well.

Year 54


Peaceful little village.

 (http://shrani.si/f/2u/y0/232ovwKD/castle-rock-xv-year-54-0.jpg)

More cheap housing on the docks. Necora's lumber cutter will provide additional lumber for proper dock houses and later for trading.

 (http://shrani.si/f/2F/Wp/47cqlCtH/castle-rock-xv-year-54-0.jpg)

Middle jetty dock will extend further out to include a small fisher. On the right I will build four jetty houses.

At one point dock town school became full and I've found a student from this Fulbert village on the other side of the lake. To prevent this from happening in the future I am forced to have a school here.

I like how you put those angled houses round little forest park. It wouldn't be the same with straight line houses.

@1 It wasn't easy. Houses need to be just the right distance from each other to get the proper curvature on the whole. I suspect even more trouble when adding the second row as I will have to keep roughly the same distance between both rows. And I still need to build a market area somewhere in between. Fun times ahead. ;D

Yes. You need to be careful, and make the right artistical choices, wrong architectural decisions can ruin the whole neighbourhood.

Year 59


The church is big but it matches house textures so we keep it. Bakery hase been moved closer to the shore and the windmill will be included at the end of the second row of houses.

 (http://shrani.si/f/1T/Cd/4HYWx41e/castle-rock-xv-year-59-0.jpg)

The most sensible location for the market area is in front of the church. Bannies want another market wagon and a second well.

This shoreline was left unattended for far too long. Looks better now.

I export a lot of logs.

I'm quite satisfied how things turned out so far.
