DS Timber Mill v2.2 (updated 29 July 2019)

it was called DS Lumber Mill, but after a name change, a UI face-lift and a few other goodies added,
it is now known as:

DSTimber Mill
as of v2.2, the mod is named: DSTimberMill.pkm - do not use with DSLumberMill.pkm

  • Timber Mill - produces Timber from Logs (2 log for 4-5 timber), or firewood (1 logs or 2 timber = 6 firewood), employs 2 woodcutters | workrequired=2 time=5.2
    • Timber Saw-Mill - upgrade of Timber Mill, employs 3 woodcutters | workrequired=2 time=4.2
  • Timber Mill Pine Forester - forester that plants pine trees only, slightly quicker maturity than vanilla (36months), less spawned foods than vanilla
  • Timber Mill Birch Forester - forester that plants birch trees only, slightly quicker maturity than vanilla (38months), less spawned foods than vanilla, but more than pine forester
  • Timber Storage Pile - building materials storage flag (custom5) | footprint 1x1 | capacity 300 weight
  • 1x2 & 2x2 Log Storage Piles - wood storage flag | footprint 1x2/2x2 | capacity 600/1200 weight
  • ghosted Timber & Log Storage Piles - ghosted versions of the above, all at ground level, they are purely for decoration, you must delete via objects UI
  • modular Timber Mill Wharf - 1x1, 1x2, 2x2, 4x2, corners and angles | 2 texture variants, now split into separate toolbar menus
  • Timber - resource, used in construction, also known as Lumber (RawMaterialLumber.rsc) | flagged as building material (custom5) resource flag limit
  • Iron Fittings - resource, used in construction | flagged as Metals, Alloys & Forged (custom1) resource flag limit

all buildings (timber mill, foresters & storage places) have a reworked UI,
and now have an included info tab to give you some building & resource information in-game:

v2.1  limits are now in a tab:

Thanks :)


Feedback. Always welcome.

(my own...)
I'm using the CC values for the lumber, but i think maybe they are not of value to build with.
And consequently i have made the wharf sections too expensive.?

Stone Bridge will be out soon... before Christmas. It will require Lumber, and Stone.

Can I ask a favor?  Your Celtic House, the round one, can you make a smaller version?  Please????
yes, in the works.

Haven't played with CC extensively, but I just tested a bunch of lumber producers for a big set I put together.  Balance is all over the place, really. Was just going to see how it worked in-game.  I'll load yours and check it out too, when I do.  I'm giving it a few days to let the freshness of testing wear off before I sink in.

Stone Bridge will be out soon... before Christmas. It will require Lumber, and Stone.

Christmas in time for Christmas.  Happy dance! :P. Been in love with that bridge since it was in the dock set beta and was credibly concerned we might never see it.  Looking forward to it!

Tried it on a Nordic map. Looks great and also works at the first glance, even with CC flagging code inside. A pity I don't have a use of lumber.^^ What about a floor definition to let them walk in/on the mill? :)

I did not think about balancing of lumber mills yet but I find the CC values reasonable. Probably it means a lost of material by sawing from 6 to 5 and wasting by uneducated workers of 20%. Maybe I would remove this lost of wood. The work time setting is exactly the same like I use for my watermill (4/2).

I was wondering about the logs to lumber ratios.

In the real world you usually get anywhere from 2 to 4 planks of lumber from one log when you cut it lengthwise.  Lumber planks are 1-2 inches thick, so depending on thickness of the log, you get a few planks from it. 

So the ratios where it takes more logs to make less lumber in Banished (and CC) always had me kind of scratching my head... shouldn't it be the other way around ?

Yes, for the feeling it sounds better to make more lumber from a log. But actually it depends on the usage of lumber as building material. If a house needs 30 logs to be built and another house with the same dimensions made from lumber needs 30 as well then it is wood in different forms but in the same amount and processed in the ratio 1:1. Imagined as a pile of boards and planks made from one log and with the same weight (storage capacity). That's probably the simplest solution in game. If lumber is made from logs in a higher ratio then it should also be used in a higher ratio as material to be logical. If 1:2 then this house should need about 60 lumber but this way it is not used in mods as far as I know. :)

Yes, I checked it also and as @elemental and @Hawk have said, the link is still version 1.0 (I checked in game to see if I could get the second texture and no luck).
