Well.. it's harder than i thought. First a funny screenshot.Picture 1:
Dismissed the half canal length at once->got this cool screenshot:DPicture 2:
So the bad news, I had some big problems. Mostly because I focused more on the town layout than the economy. Bad mistake. Population raised faster and faster, till the economy couldnt handle to buy enough food. No problem so far, I have many fishermens inactive. So I assigned all the 66 fisher and bought many many herbs. Unfortunately the herb trader only comes every 4-5 years. So, everyone know what happens if you only gave the people one food type and no herbs.. people startet idling like 80% of the time. Lost 3 hearts of health. The idling made it some worse.Picture 3:
The worst moment. Only 70k food for ~1000 people. Disease and frozing people. Lost maybe 200 people on starvation and frozing. But 40k logs. And full happiness. Thats ok.
Set every tp to buy 1k of every food type. And autobuy 9999 logs. Set inventory to 4k firewood and 100 tools. Had many laborer. Assigned every woodcutter 1 worker. Doubled blacksmiths and tailor.(Currently thinking about exporting them much more)
Demolished every pasture and replaced them with new sizes and more symmetry. 80% sheeps, 20% milky cows. To fix the deathwalk I tried to close the first district with the next canal line.
There was enough stone so I placed the whole next line and let it go.
While new canal line was built, I lost more people on starvation. I could just remove a fishermen and replaced it with a bridge but im afraid the break of 1-2 years without trader wouldnt end that well.. Let's have a look on the next picturePicture 4, 5 and 6:
Mostly fish but enough of other food types by the trader. Aaaaaand many of mutton from my big sheep farm. Food is now raising very fast. Clothing too. Logs and firewood is alright but could be more. Got 3 hearts of health back. Built some more dairys for my milky cows because there is way to much milk. Can someone tell me if the people can drink the milk or just the next product like cheese or yogurt? Anyway, I'm not sure if i will keep the pastures for more export or replacing them with crops. Deciding later. It's now reserved as 'emergency space'
Next canal line is finished. First woodcutter will be too. As soon as there are some houses underneath the canal, I will close the gap of the canal on the right. At this point the population will grow very fast because no one will die anymore on deathwalk.
Maybe you saw that i replaced the townhall outside the canal system. Thats for save some space and it's not needed inside. I will not accept nomads in further time.@Nilla
Yeah i think it could get maybe to 15k. And I dont wanna know how much it will lagg^^
I dont use them because I will lose overview. I need to watch currently on so much things at once. If I had specialized markets it would be much more effort. And the radius of them is very small. With the normal markets I can see every ressource thats inside. But on other hand I could optimize a single ressource much better. Maybe I give it a try on the next canal line:)
