So I got down to work on a vegetarian settlement today and this is what I have so far, the town of Steel in year 31. I started on medium because I was worried that on hard the lack of hunting at the beginning would lead to problems and on easy you get animals. I was somewhat unlucky with vegetables--squash and peppers--but lucky with orchards to get chestnuts, so protein was taken care of. Once I had my trading post set up I did save and reload to get a merchant selling corn and then apples, so grain and fruit (berries from gatherers were OK, but not as much inventory as I would like). Health is now 5 and happiness is 4.5. You'll note from the last picture the great place I found for the hospital, on a little peninsula where it wedges in so that there is no access to sides or rear. So far three outbreaks (scarlet fever, mumps and influenza). The first came quite early, before any trade or nomads, so no hospital built and the people standing on their front porch while "visiting the doctor" spread it to about 10 people before I could get the hospital built. The other two were one person each, so I'm thinking I'm pretty clever--probably be disabused of that soon. The other pictures show the stats and overviews of the settlement. I'm calling the boulevard Chestnut Boulevard since that is what is planted down the middle. That is becoming the central thoroughfare and I will pave it soon as stone inventory builds up. I am just now getting the trading going with a second trading post, so the coat situation is not good. That should come along as I produce more ale to trade.
