Title: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: kid1293 on August 08, 2019, 01:11:42 PM
Yes @MarkAnthony and others, I have news from the north. :)
The rumour that Santa has disappeared is not true! Just a lengthy vacation.

What do we wish for Christmas? We can talk about it and maybe the wishes reach him.
He was very specific about one thing - We have to do the Julmust ourselves.
He will provide the secret recipe. :)

So.
Please! No factories or other large scale production and no residential buildings.
Just nice and Christmas-y things.

To start off the thread. What use are toys? Eye-candy and trade... what more?
Do we have a toymaking modder? You're welcome.

:)

No large scale production - that would exclude specialty stores like pastry shoppes, chocolatiers, & toy stores?

No residential buildings - so that would exclude homes with Christmas seasonal lights hanging from the roofs & porches?

So more of a decorations mod mostly right? How about wrapped presents in singles or multiples that can be left around town alongside homes and buildings, red bags of toys/packages, giant stuffed animals, various sizes and types of Christmas trees such as the Spruce, Douglas Fir, Nobles and so on, even the Charlie Brown Christmas tree? Larger-sized rocking horses done in the manor of playground equipment? Toy wagons or sleds? Large decorative toy soldiers, ice-skating ponds somehow? Seasonal clothes for the Banies like knit caps, scarves and gloves/mittens? Wasn't there a mod that did various clothing styles? Seasonal plants like Poinsettias and Holly? Decorated tables with different foods, plants, candles, tablecloths? Outdoor fireplaces/firepits for Banies to idle at or even gain a Happiness rating? You can roast marshmallows too!

So the ice-skating pond I was thinking it would be a ground cover (road) that looked like frozen water with banks of snow on the outer edges with a few benches on the sides? Your snow banks could be made in variable sizes and put on the sides of stuff as ghosted maybe (if that's easier)?

I don't know Kid, I'm just spit-balling here. When I originally thought of you doing another Christmas mod I was thinking pastry shops and chocolatiers with various recipes, somewhere to make fruit cakes and similar, turkey and ham dinners, stuffing etc... a variety of dishes from around the world (the more well-known types). I was thinking homes with wreaths and lights on them, homes with frosted windows, paned glass  and piles of presents in various states of display.

/shrug

I'm not sure what you're up for doing or what kinds of things will hold you back in terms of coding any of this. So I'm just throwing ideas out there hoping to see what sticks!

Looking at your other Christmas mods, I don't know of any mod that has/produces sugar to go with that mod? Can you recommend one?


EDIT: I'm just guessing here but wouldn't it even be easier to do the ice-skating pond as a building? Not a skating rink, but as a structure to be built about the size of the vanilla quarry and without the straight edges when completed? It doesn't even have to do anything - you just build it for looks.  /shrug  Although I guess all buildings have to have an employee so maybe he/she hands out ice-skates! ;) This could also be an idle spot/Happiness maker if you wanted it to be.

Oh and toys as eye-candy (yes!) and trading (yes!) -- Lol why not?! Are you up for it? You did say no large scale production don't forget, and I'm thinking Santa-Banie is pretty large-scale! :P

Another deco table idea is a "present-wrapping" station.  So a large table or a couple butted together that has a few rolls of colored wrapping paper, a couple of bows and a box or two in an opened-state that's being prepared to get wrapped. All of this is messy looking or strewn-about.


 :)

Post by: MarkAnthony on August 08, 2019, 06:23:55 PM
I don't know why we don't have kittens and puppies running around town other than you modders can't do the animations. I get that and it's a shame truly.  :(

But can we at least have wrapped boxes with a bow on top and it's ajar/partially opened with a puppy face sticking out of it? Or decorated baskets with a kitten in it?

Can we huh? Can we?!

Can I have a puppy for Christmas?!?!  ::) :P

@MarkAnthony Wow you just want EVERYTHING don't you?  8) 8)

I really like the idea of an ice skating pond! Built as a building. RKEC has a fishing pond that would fit the ticket because it's not square. So something like that.

Christmas trees as deco trees.

A Santa or Kris Kringle. Or or or .... a Santa's Workshop with elves!

Still thinking and will add more later if I can come up with some more reasonable ideas :)

Those are no very large scale... That is exactly what it is about.
The main problem will be the trader spammed with new (useless) products.
Well, it is Christmas only once a year :)

Ice pond shouldn't be too hard, an irregular area with snow piled up at the sides.
A little imagination and some happiness and people will gather on the ice.

@MarkAnthony - A good way to start would be to make the Sugar first.
It will be needed in many recipes and it is base for much candy.
Abandoned was thinking of using the More Snow mod to have snow all year.
I don't know. Beets or canes? Honey? It can all be made in greenhouses but
a beet field under a roof?  ::) It may look out of place.

...to be continued :)

Back again.

I did some re-texturing of the old Christmas mod. I needed to make things a better match.
It was a collection of small mods and things all over the place. It is better now.

I made a Sugar House (picture) complete with sugar canes and a boiler inside.
Just build it and it produces sugar.

I also have a Cocoa House (second picture) with Cacao plants inside. Seeds are heated
and Cocoa is the result.

A little bit on the long road to Christmas.

Next thing will be something with Chocolate or Hot Chocolate to drink.

I second that!  They do indeed look great-I love the way your textures work so well with the game ones.

Delicious chocolate! Greetings kid1293, I'm excited because bannies can drink chocolate, and the possibilities are many, ice cream, liquor, cookies ... ufff, I admire and enjoy their work, tequila mod, mission, food market are very great , and many others... that everything goes very well.
P.S. Vanilla plant for vanilla extract? An idea for a new crop? maybe it already exists and I don't even know  ;)
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: kid1293 on August 17, 2019, 08:15:18 PM
Hi @brewer
I think vanilla extract goes as a spice. It is easier to have just one resource or the trader
will be flooded with new things. And ice cream in the winter... ::) I am not so sure :)
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: brewer on August 17, 2019, 08:42:57 PM
The vanilla plant is an orchid, the pistil is what really gives that incredible flavor; I think I understand what you say, having a single resource is more manageable, as for ice cream I think that my emotion surpassed me, I made a connection with the ice cream cart of embx61, maybe later something can be done about it, but for winter even I can say that I prefer a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, thanks  :)
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019

Marshmallows are good.

@kid1293 :D :D :D The new idea is great, the houses with the greenhouse are great and that you made a wood texture, I'm a gourmand I like chocolate. I have a question, can you accelerate this project and release this mod sooner and not just for the Christmas Wishes 2019? :-\ :P Very nice please. Regards
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: kid1293 on August 23, 2019, 10:16:10 AM
@taniu - I will see if I release earlier. I don't know right now.

At least I have made a Hot Chocolate stand to match the market.
It is working just fine and will give warmth in winter.

It is only August. I am taking a break :)
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019

@kid1293 :D ;D :D :-[I know very well that even a simple edition of mod is a very labor-intensive thing, you have to forgive me for my impatience - but what to create - I always want new fashions like a small child now? - it was just a joke - I use your mods a lot in the game, because they are very useful - will I wait patiently? I just hope that at least the title suggests December 2019 - will the release be a bit sooner? :-[ Greetings
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: MarkAnthony on August 26, 2019, 11:00:38 PM
Okay @kid1293 I have another Christmas-inspired mod wish please.

A Scrooge and Marley Counting House! It's purpose? Town Hall stats for early game use. Just this by itself with nothing else included in the mod.

If you want you may stick to the story of "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. Because it is an accounting place of business you may gladly charge a continual Scrooge-fee for it's on-going use. How about a "few" Coal to keep it's sole clerk Bob Cratchit warm? Scrooge only gave his clerk a small amount of coal to keep warm by so little in fact that Bob Cratchit also tried to stay warm by candle fire as well!

From the looks of Scrooge and Marley in the movies is was in a state of disrepair so I doubt Scrooge would have paid to have things fixed up but you could also charge a continual fee of a few Log and Stone too if you wanted, but I doubt Scrooge would approve of such expenditures.

What brings this up? I seriously hate not having stats at the beginning of game but I also don't want to use other tiny mods to get it because they include so many other things along with it that I would be tempted to use them to make the game start a bit easier.

So... just the Scrooge and Marley Counting House only.  Please and thank you. 

Bah humbug!  Scrooge would never say those words! He would tell you to show up for work bright and early the day after Christmas though.   No rest for the weary, so please make haste!   :P

P.S.: With a "minimize" button of course!

 
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: kid1293 on August 26, 2019, 11:23:08 PM
Hi (and good morning)

I can accept to work for a bit of coal. Although not needed. If I work hard I keep warm.  :)

All the other buildings in Christmas mod are neat and orderly. I don't want to spoil that
impression by adding a derelict accounting house badly in need of repair.

A town hall menu is always good to have. Some not too big, cheap building.
You have the Gingerbread House as a town hall but it is not cheap. (although I reduced
the cost this year)

I will add it to the (in)famous to-do-list.
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: MarkAnthony on August 26, 2019, 11:27:47 PM
Thank you.

Yeah, I meant as an original mod all by itself; I didn't mean for it to be included in your annual Christmas mod. I just mentioned it here well... because Christmas!!! And this is your Christmas thread.

But I like the sounds of a derelict building though, perhaps with roof shingles ajar and about to fall off, maybe a slight lean in the building.  I'll see if I can find any images of what it looked like in some of the movies. That may be hard though, I don't know.
Title: Re: Christmas Wishes 2019
Post by: MarkAnthony on August 27, 2019, 12:39:35 AM
Hmm, I guess I was mistaken about it being in a state of disrepair.

I checked YouTube for movies of A Christmas Carol, there are versions from the 1930's that I never saw before! I'm going to have to watch those. Some of the movies upload are not that great in quality but some are.

As for the "real" building I found the one that Charles Dickens based the Scrooge & Marley building on. It was on Chancery Lane in Malton, in Yorkshire England and was turned into a museum which I think now, no longer exists due to lack of funding. The building may still be there but I think the museum itself is now closed. Anyhow, Dickens had a friend named Charles Smithson whom he would visit in Malton and he was a local solicitor and it was his solicitor's office that inspired the building Dickens used.

But yeah I guess it wasn't in a state of disrepair, it's just the normal gloomy/dreary dark shabby buildings of England you always saw in old movies.

The first two images below are just drawings from books. The ones after are the real solicitor's office that Dickens based the Scrooge & Marley building on. I guess it was actually spelt Scrooge & Marley. I don't know. I see it both ways.  The last two images show what the windows looked like from the inside of the building.

Post by: kid1293 on August 27, 2019, 01:33:53 AM
Hi @MarkAnthony - What you show is more or less a rowhouse building which I have none in Christmas mod.
It could be made stand-alone but right now it is not important. I have noted it and will come back later.

In other words - I am not up to it now. I am going through a period where I have a lot to do.
I played some when I made Settlers but that's all, for years. It is only the next project and next...

You realize a building like that requires matching surroundings...

Like sitting at Christmas table. - I don't think I can eat another turkey right now!  ???

 ;D
Be well.

@kid1293  :D ;D ;D You are right - There is a saying with us - Take your time slowly - it's not time and desire to celebrate - I personally thought about the production of chocolate - we eat not only on the occasion of saints, but all year round, and even - mountaineers eat because it has a lot of calories and adds them energy, and if you have a bad day and you are sad - eat chocolate - it's a good soul comforter, that's it - work at your own pace. don't worry - we players, not when we disturb, I cordially greet

Regarding toys, @kid1293 , maybe make a toy store that serves the same purpose as a tavern, but instead of alcohol, they get toys.  Instead of fruits, wood would be what is needed for production.  Then the toys could be "consumed" or traded.   The toy store would give entertainment happiness, like a tavern.  I don't know what kind of toy deco there would be in a town,  unless it would be something like a wooden toy rocking horse or bouncing horse on a metal spring that children could (pretend) sit on.  That would be something ghosted to add to around a playground.  I wouldn't put tiny toy dolls or cars, etc. on the ground around houses.

The toy store makes wooden trade good toys.  There is a deco wooden toy train, rocking horse, and squirrel. They can be place around one of the Christmas trees that was already in the Christmas mod, or in schoolyard, backyard, park, or playground.

The Christmas mod update is now being tested in Village Blog Abandoned story Railway part 2 Hometown Holiday

@kid1293 :D :D ;DI know you are already tired of spending so many mods - but I have one more question - can you add a mod - deco reindeer - we have a sleigh - would be a great addition - and the reindeer could also be used to a colder climate - mod "Animal Pen V1.0 "- he is fantastic - I can put camels in the desert -   do the same with the reindeer - put them in a colder climate  :(- though" The North "- there are reindeers - but this game is demanding - not all mods suit it - I test it - but a lot mods I have to delete - because the game freezes. I have one more question I mean "Red Desert V2.0" mod I placed at the top of the list and underneath I added "RKEditorChoiceEdition XtraLight 1.3.1c" - does it cause conflict and the game freezes? I don't know, I'll keep testing. I sent a reindeer request to @ Tom - but I don't know if he'll answer? I can wait - if you grant my request I will be very happy. I apologize in advance for my whining. Greetings

Sorry @ kid1293 and @Abandoned - thank you for the hint - if it's a reindeer - in this mod - I'm very happy - @ Abandoned knew I just wanted to put reindeers in Animal Pen and create a village Christmas with my "Banished" - I'm clumsy- if I haven't noticed the reindeer - and I haven't yet drunk root beer - does this word in Swedish mean Julmust? I need to slow down a little because I would like to try everything - beautiful new mods - but you can't do it - the computer is rebellious -  - I still have an error!!!  :(- I need to save all the mods that are working together at this stage now, I'm lost - but I think I can manage - everything will be fine -OK.

@taniu

jul mean "Christmas", Julmust.  Julmust is swedish christmas time soft drink.
It not taste like root beer.  More like kvass, but not exatly that eather.
Julmust is much softer, sweeter and fruity taste.
