Hi, I'm currently numbercrunching maps during my sleeping hours. I have a thread with 300 large valley seeds over at

http://www.banishedforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1414

DirectDL link is http://www68.zippyshare.com/v/43521711/file.html

Small valleys 0-200 are ready on my PC, which is currently generating Large mountains 0-500. I'll upload both tomorrow morning when I wake up.

I'd really like to get some feedback whether you find this usefull. If so I'll generate all type/size combinations, not just the ones I'm interested in. Currently my focus is getting all combinations to at least 0-200 and then continue with large maps as a priority but I'll gladly generate medium and small maps if it's desired. Large maps take about 62 seconds to generate and screenshot, while small maps are at about 20 seconds, so it's easy to generate a few hundred maps a night.

nmid, I use your large valleys collection regularly to find some interesting maps to play. Crunch numbers to your heart's content.

Hello everyone !

first i have a question (and then i ll post a seed i found that seemed nice)

my question is :

what kind of script that is ? (the person who is making 300-900 maps during sleeping) i ve tried to put that in a .bat file but ... CMD.exe doesnt reconize any command in that :P

what i need to do to run that ?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2nd : i ve got a nice large valley map:

seed: 1008
Large Valley Mild

very slow start : 10 adults , 2 kids (1x1 and 1x6 years old)
the 1st 10 years old comes at begining of Early Winter so plently of time to build the school.
Pumpkins (very bad) and Pepper (good).
But you have a giant forest so you can build Gatherers.

Main river passing through 2 lakes to the East.
you can build a Fishing dock and 1st Trader post at ... 10 squares away from initial barn.

but god, such big zone to the West, North and South ^^ with so much ressources (or at least so much wood ^^)

Please, have a look. seed 1008 valley large mild

From what I read in the comments on reddit, the software used is AutoHotKey. I'm not familiar with it myself, but it's easy to find now you have the name.  :D

And welcome to the forum.

You saved me kind sir, thank you. When I first open a new map, I pause the game and take my time laying out all the important bits. I pause the construction of tailor, blacksmith and trading post until there are enough workers and resources (borrowing farmers in the winter). I have indeed placed the trading post in the fateful spot... adjustments will be made! 
I started with the Old Growth Forests by Owlchemist mod. I had 12 adults and I believe 10 kids. Cabbage, Wheat and plum were the agriculture resources with cattle as the herd animal. OGF changes the startup resources(I've done a lot of experimenting).

Thank you!  :)

This looks like what I've been looking for. Have been generating maps for a long time now, but never finding something decent. REALLY wish we could set some (more) parameters when setting up the game, a bit like in Sim City 2000. Incredible how often my starts were surrounded by mountains or with barely a tree in sight.

just dont put the trading post right to the left, it bugs. you need to set it up a bit further toward the river to the south-east :)

Thanks. Haven't built one yet, but good to know. Misunderstood your earlier post, thought you meant not to the right OF THE lake, but you must have meant to the right of the starting area. The game just keeps crashing though (Linux), so the return to Banished might be very brief, unfortunately.
