Title: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: irrelevant on July 02, 2019, 06:58:21 PM
So after seeing @Nilla's RKEC town over the weekend, I was impressed enough by what I saw to download the mod and give it a go. This is the only mod I have enabled for this town.

So far, I think it is awesome.

Image 1: Late Summer 5, the hunter is off the hook! Cranking out lumber, iron, copper, tools, firewood from thatch, linen, and coats.

Image 2: Late Autumn 6, getting ready for production of the first serious trade good; sand, firewood = glassware + water, flowers = perfume, TV8 each.

Image3: Early Summer 8, the Lighthouse/Town Hall is just completed. @Nilla, only two barns!  ;)

Yes, itīs an awesome mod and itīs also awesome to read a new blog from you @irrelevant!

You are very welcome back! :)
(I know you made a few guest appearances with your super ultra tenure town.)

Only two barns? What has happened to you? Arenīt there any hidden markets or carts we donīt see? ;)

Edit; we can even see them plain and clear if we look; each house has its own store. Iīm relieved! @irrelevant without stores? No way that you change that much! ;)

Early Summer 11: Got a second village going, making bricks and roof tiles, then moving on to the really important stuff: beer. :P
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: irrelevant on July 07, 2019, 06:13:42 PM
Early Spring 17: Tavern made 570 strong beer last year, don't think I ever made that much ale from a single tavern.

Got 5 greenhouses making 6000 food/year. I don't think the one stable could provide fertilizer for a sixth one. Edit: that's wrong, I just needed to add a second stablehand. Going to replace those farms with greenhouses and other productive things.

745 tools! Low on iron now though. Going to need to buy some, not much surface ore around nearby.

Recently added Friesian cows and a Red Dairy, milk production still too low for cheesemaking.

Interesting that you haven't built an RKEC iron mine. Are you planning on only buying iron you need?

Thanks!

@moonbelf I rarely build mines or quarries, but I should probably try some out for this town, just for the sake of research! Going to need a mine for those gemstones, in any case. :)

One of the "issues" with this mod is that you get a lot of export goods, especially if you want to test many of the special buildings and in the end; you need to buy something that makes sense.

Post by: irrelevant on July 09, 2019, 06:15:09 PM
@Nilla yes, I'm getting my two TPs all stocked up, but having trouble finding things I need to buy. I wish I could build a really big library, and just fill it chock-full of books @RedKetchup ;)

Decided not to buy iron, I'm going to get it the hard/fun way.

Image 1: no need to build farms, no need to buy crop seeds.

@RedKetchup what do "fertility potion" and "healing potion" do?? :o
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: RedKetchup on July 10, 2019, 05:49:25 AM
fertility potion and healing potion are both the same; they are an health and custom7 item: can be used to get 1/2 heart back. custom7 = miscelleneous.

Do you find yourself having to micromanage making jewelry? I find I have to constantly tell the jeweler which gems to use from the gem cutter. And yes it's fun all the same lol.

Same question as BRADS3 ... 1000 years?

Yeah, definitely needs considerable attention. But your guys aren't going to starve or freeze to death if your Jewelry Maker runs out of sapphires to make pendants.  ;)

The wood collector is very good. 200-300 logs/year with two workers.

It took some fiddling around to get the connection of the dock to the land to work right. It's a bit like a bridge, you need to make sure there is an accessible square at the end.

Early Spring 29

Image 1: New forest groups on the northern fringe. Forester, Gatherer, Thatcher, Herbalist, X2.

Image 2: The two original villages; the fodder farm real-estate near the river is becoming too valuable to leave it in fodder. Time for some NMT 3-story stuff. ;)

Image 3: Dock Town is expanding. @Artfactial Drifters Dock produced 342 logs with three workers, maxxed out.

why do you put a thatcher with a forester ? they will pass their time to replace what they planted together.
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: irrelevant on July 18, 2019, 03:07:14 AM
@RedKetchup The foresters aren't planting, only cutting. Those two areas will eventually be my new fodder fields to replace the ones by the river. The fodder farmers are spending half of their time planting, so they need some help with clearing out the rocks and trees.

I manually clear the area for the fodder farmer before placing him too. For myself, it's a faster way to get that fodder thatch going. I also clear ahead for any fruit plantations so they can start going faster. Maybe it's because I just want results faster lol.

Didnīt I say something like that?  ;)

One question @irrelevant. Do you have any problems with the distribution of water and fertilizer to your greenhouses? What is your strategy for this?
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: irrelevant on July 19, 2019, 06:55:29 AM
@Nilla I believe that you did say that  ;)

Yes I certainly did have that issue with my greenhouses at first, but I think I have that sorted out finally. I have a stable with two workers for each greenhouse group. I have three water towers, one central and one on either edge. I keep an eye on the water inventory, and occasionally I increase or decrease the number or watertower workers as needed. It's been a few years since I had any greenhouses run out of inputs.

I should probably check how much fertilizer I have lying around  ;)
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: brads3 on July 19, 2019, 08:06:02 AM
you can use KIDs dung pile to store the fertilizer like a wharehouse. i do that before i have materials to build the greenhouses. keeps the fertilizer in 1 location and out of the workpiles. then after the greenhouses are built, you send the fertiizer from the dung pile back to them.

Yeah, maybe next time. Not going to ever add any new mods to an existing game in progress; I've had very bad experience with that! ;)

Generally, thereīs no problem to add more mods to existing games. I do it often. You must only kind of "know what you are doing". But I wouldnīt add anything to an RKEd game. The mod already has so much that there's no need for it and I also think Red has a "concept" for his big mod and at least I want to "feel" that concept the first time I try such a mod.

Just wanted to point out for anyone looking at these, the double wide roads between the NMT blocks is a deliberate choice, when NMT first came out a few years back, I made the mistake of using single wide roads between them. With a single wide road you are going to have a really hard time clicking on the ground floor units between those three-story buildings.

Also, it isn't a bad idea to include some alley-ways running cross-ways through those blocks. These can be single wide.
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions

How are the supply of water and fertilizer to all these greenhouses? You donīt seem to have that much of any of them. Unless I had a very large surplus, I always had some distribution problems to some of the greenhouses when I had lots of them.
Title: Re: Audoboistow - RKEC1.31 first impressions
Post by: irrelevant on July 27, 2019, 05:30:35 AM
@Nilla currently there is a surplus of both fertilizer (850) and water (2700), but the fertilizer surplus is slowly shrinking. The 32 greenhouses use about 2400 fertilizer/year to produce around 33,600 food. I'm making around 1650 2200/year at the three four stables, plus another 200 or so from the pastures. I'm going to need another stable or perhaps two more. Might as well build two. I overlooked one stable! So building just one more is good for now.

Water is no problem ever, there are 5 water towers and a comfortable surplus. Also making perfume and potions, so I keep a close watch on the water.

Distribution has been good so far, having surpluses helps. Each greenhouse group has a stable and a water tower nearby. But thanks for reminding me to check! I probably would have been running out of fertilizer next year sometime.

It is very impressive indeed.:) Awesome that you can keep that many greenhouses going! Suprised your pastures have such a small percentage of the fertilizer income, the stables appear way more productive either way.
Love those docks slowly smothering the lake.:P

@RedKetchup the guys that do have jobs already make more stuff than I need! :D Besides, having lots of laborers means the workers stay working and don't knock off every little bit to take their products to storage. And when I need to clear out a spot to build something, it gets cleared out tout de suite!

Thanks! The only livestock producing fertilizer are Bison and Cattle, just one pasture of each one, pretty small count really (17 Bison, 8 Cattle). Not ready to spam pastures everywhere, and the stables are a good way to use up the huge fodder inventory.

Yes, I plan to build all around that lake, with just enough water open for drift-logging and fishing.

Year 53  pop 895

Overview

Built a Pecan Lodge, I love Free Stuff™! ;)

Heh, after adding DS Townhouses, "Lumber" changed to "Timber".

Going to join the lake in image four to the river using RK Canals.

Tried and tried and TRIED, but never could get this island to go all the way away. Only cost me one house in the end though.

Used the primo real estate on the map for a @Discrepancy village. Beautiful stuff! Could wish for a few more "F" options, like some windows in the blank walls of the Byggen Townhouses (for where they get used on corners). Also maybe a ground floor school. But the Brick Townhouses are superb (love the back yards and the oddball floating storage unit), as are the Stone Townhouses (I wish those had a few more options too)!

Got some room there for a few more blocks.

Ugh, may have to replace that one slate-roofed Byggen with a tile roof, cause I've got OCD pretty bad.

ETA: Of course the mod is by @Discrepancy, corrected. Sorry about that!

Aw, man. Starting to crash out.  >:(

I've got a DS baker making cakes, have a TP set to collect them. I made cakes earlier with a RK baker using a different set of inputs. I bet that's it.

@RedKetchup help!  :o ;)

Fortunately I made a save a this point, before I built the baker. We'll see if going back in time can rescue this town.

That didn't fix it. This time it crashed when I was adding a vanilla dirt road.

Never add mods to an existing game. I "learned" this lesson once already.

This town is done.

I've read some posts about modifying the registry. I am not tech-savvy at all, is that something that could possibly help me here? Or is that useful only for starting a new town?

no,just new maps. everything is locked in the save files.

Aw, sad to hear, it is indeed playing with fire to add new mods to savegames, although some are far safer than others.
Was really liking those DS blocks; the townhouse mod is definitely one of my favorites.:)

   yes and no. you can add to the game so mods that just add new buildings but do not change the functions will work. you can not change the game so mods that alter the start settings,processing of goods,building requirements to the main vanilla buildings,etc will cause issues.

          there is a theory that since the game  loads the top mod down,adding a mod to the bottom won't cause problems. since the coding above is locked,any new mod won't affect anything and the changes would be overlooked. as you have founf that theory is flawed. even if this did work,you aren't getting the full use of the new mod.depending on what all is in the new mod, much of it will be ignored and not loaded.

           this is the part many players fail to realize. just because a mod was added and you see parts of it,doesnt mean that mod loaded completely. so the player won't get all the benefits or affects of the mod. kinda like buying a big pickup truck to go to the  store and buy 1 bag of groceries or a bus for just 2 people. adjusting the mod order is the only way to merge mods and get the most out of them. even then, there is some give and take to how they will work.


      in your case,you can try to go back several save points and try again.if you can narrow down why it is crashing, you might be able to save the map. i am assuming you have enough computer memory to run the mods.i am also assuming that you haven't reached the dreaded maximum storage or population crash point.you could go back to a save before the mod you believe is causing the crash and tear down all buildings that are affected with the new mod. could take a lot of time. if you added something recently,there is a good chance it can be fixed. you did play quite a while with some of the DS added.if you built a different building that is crashing the game,it might be easy to narrow down. since you used the DS for so long,i'd be surprised it was causing the crash. i suppose it is possable that a merchant finally got confused. if sounless you saved right as it was suppose to appear on the map,there is a good chance reloading the save would solve it.  again,it depends how much tie you want to invest in trying to save the map. you can try going back farther to  earlier save points.
