It's that time of year again and @kid1293 has updated his Christmas Mod which now includes some fantastic storage, warehouse, and decorative sleighs.

http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?topic=2724.0

In Chapter 2 of my Village Blog Christmas story called Aspenglow I explain why Santa needs help filling those sleigh. 

http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?topic=2725.0


Kid and I are issuing a HELP WANTED Challenge on behalf of Santa who needs your help.


It is quite simple:

Start a new map - any size and start condition

Use  Christmas Mod 2018 and any other mods you choose except Debug - No Debug.

You will need flour, and sugar or honey from another compatible mod.

Fill warehouse sleighs with a total of 1,000 gingerbread and 1,000 eggnog and 2,000 candy.

You can make or trade for those needed items or ingredients.

Take screenshots showing warehouse sleigh totals and the season and year the sleighs were all filled with the required items.  Do this in the least amount of game time to win the challenge.

Enter more than once to beat your own time or someone else's

Deadline for completion of challenge is Dec 21, 2018.  Kid has made a special award for the winner.

well.we worked hard. stockpiled food and resources for the 1st year.elves came to triple the workforce the 2nd year.traded lots of marble.as luck had it or some smart planning,never ran out of tools til the very end. there is  candy,eggnog,and gingerbread to spare.you can pick which kind you want honey-apple,honey-spice,or honey-blueberry. under year 5 with propertime mod.

map 12252018 large easy start potatoes,radishes,peach,blueberry. on a medium size map, you start between 2 lakes.it would give you wheat seeds then. KID liked to send his nomad elves in the far corners.if you don't build bridges before they show up,they starve trying to get to town.on 1 attempt,KID hid the elves in a canyon to the very edge of the map.since they were across a stream,they were stuck that way.

Hi all!

We failed.

After a long journey, we tought we were far enough to finaly begin something new and beautiful.
A new life in a new village.
But there was so much to do and we were so tired.
We gathered and we decided we were going to do it anyway. Before winter we should have built a home for everyone and we should be able to provide food for all.
And then next Christmas we would have a huge celebration.

We worked hard. But not hard enough.
Next Winter, there were still homeless people.
Sure we had plenty of food and we were able to trade for everything we needed for our Christmas celebration but the ships were late.
Candy and gingerbread and eggnog were not delivered before spring.
So we failed.

Someone said we should build sleighs to store all this for next christmas.
We did it.
But now everytime I see these sleighs I remember we failed.


Not the right spirit ? Anyway I'm pretty sure we can achieve this in less than one year :)

I am impressed @hopledor !
People was my main issue when trying. You solved it!
I hit it at late winter 2 but I do not participate.

It will be hard to beat! :)

Post by: hopledor on December 08, 2018, 05:34:58 AM
Thanks

I think it could be done before first christmas if someone has more luck than me with traders.
I tried to have less possibilities for food, not using CC (jade and marble quaries are standalone here), no PineSet either (only maritimes trees), and even no Bakery Garden but these 10 food traders didn't want to bring eggnog before second coming.

But still, less than one year this time:

Wow, impressive  :)  Late Winter of Year One.  Good work @hopledor  :)

That will be hard to beat folks, give it a try.  :)
Title: Re: HELP WANTED
Post by: hopledor on December 08, 2018, 08:40:26 AM
And 13 was the magical number for these traders.
It can be beaten. But I'll probably won't try again.

@Abandoned Thanks for the challenge
@kid1293 Thanks for this mod !

How the hell (sorry if bad language is inappropriate) , in one year is possible. I know that already when i started, i don't have any possibilities to win this, but one year.
Title: Re: HELP WANTED
Post by: Abandoned on December 08, 2018, 02:22:07 PM
 :) I am surprised too, 1 year is amazing.  Maybe it can be beaten with different strategy.   :)  Who knows.
Title: Re: HELP WANTED
Post by: hopledor on December 09, 2018, 07:15:35 AM
ok, i'm addicted to this :)

@1 It's all about the mods you choose to use (no debug of course). There's an old one, Multiple Starts, which seems to be really usefull here.

So I tried again with and without trade. Same results: year 1 september

Also Using LandscapeNordic should be mandatory :)

 :) very nice @hopledor  I like that Multiple Starts mod also.  Landscape does look great.  :)

I have some production numbers for anyone who will try to beat your record.  The Christmas baker on my map produced 924 gingerbread, the Nog Nook 960 eggnog, and the Candy Store 540 candies in one year.

Good job  :)

We can. LandscapeNordic.pkm is a mod by itself.
Title: Re: HELP WANTED
Post by: brads3 on December 09, 2018, 11:55:56 AM
please send us a copy.many of TOM's smaller mods got wiped out after the 1.07 upgrade.links to the older mods went "poof" up in smoke. i had many of the older versions of the north mod but my comp ate them last spring.

I'm not sure i have other tricks but i wish I could read russian because the vk page where the link was has some intriguing pictures.
(the vk page: https://vk.com/wall-30167063?offset=0&own=1 (https://vk.com/wall-30167063?offset=0&own=1))

For example I don't know what this is :)

And now for something different my ultimate attempt to beat myself ;)

(http://worldofbanished.com/gallery/10838_09_12_18_2_48_55.jpeg)

I have no clue how to do it faster.
But maybe there are other mod that i don't know about and which can help.

I mainly used:

hardlabor
InedibleMilk
InedibleEggs
InedibleFlour
MoreStone
MoreWood
LessFood50
RidiculousStorage
DenseForests (not really helping)
MaritimesTrees
MultipleStarts
ChoppingBlock
KidWorkPlaceVillage (honey,grinder...)
KidRowBusiness (market)
KidColonialResource (free pasture, because I started with chicken)
KidBakeryGarden (barley for flour)
KidCrates
WheelbarrowBigger
Minibuildings (townhall)

Gingerbread with honey, sugar is refined and needs an extra processing stage.

Post by: kid1293 on December 16, 2018, 04:56:15 AM
@hopledor - Just a small idea.
Maybe they can eat from barn or storage cart, they don't need houses. :)
It is not until winter they need houses.

You're right, they don't need houses before winter. I didn't build any on the last try.

In good time to send the sleighs on Christmas!

On behalf of Santa I send a statue of Santa's finest reindeer 'Rudolf'!
Express delivery to your account, @hopledor !
