... had to search for you all*lol*. My last post over in the official forum was arround the end of May - Beginning June I awaked in hospital after a motorcycle accident (not my fault, but my pain, anyway, damn car). I'm well and fully restored now and had some time for Banished on my laptop since my offline-stay - helped alot also to go through rehabilitation. I'm now back on feet at home since last weekend. Just want to say "Hello again" to all here new here and oldone's from over there :). Well done forum@solarscreen, was overdue, handy and spamfree, love it. I have to take my time now to catch up what happened here and to place a couple more 'funny pictures' ;) aswel as pictures from Walhalla once I've transfered my save's 'n shots from my laptop.

@landgrave Wow!  Glad you were able to recover!  You just don't realize how much something like that can take from you until it happens.

Glad to have you with us over here.  Take your time looking around and be sure to let me know if you see anything missing or anything you would like to add or change.

Well, I've moved over from the Shining Rock site.  This seems to be a better forum.

I am a retired professor of computer science and I run Banished on my dual core AMD machine in Ubuntu 14.04 with wine-1.7.22 (at the moment).  Wine has a problem with the threading model and therefore the game runs like a snail, but since I have all the time in the world, I don't really mind.

I've been playing for about a month.  Very interesting learning curve.

Hello everyone!  I'm 33, so I guess I'm the young one around here haha.  I live in Washington State.

I purchased this game back at the beginning of March because I thought it looked promising.  I quickly became frustrated and stopped playing, mainly due to a total lack of purpose and understanding of how the game worked.  For whatever reason, I decided to give it a try again this July.  Now I'm hopelessly hooked.  Awesome game, and glad I decided to give it another try.  I'm approaching 300 citizens on probably my 7th town.  Things seem to be going well for now...

I have heard about the bugs other people have experienced, but I have not experienced any myself.  The game seems to run perfectly.

Anyways, that's enough rambling for me.

A quick hello from me. Can't remember how I found Banished, but it's flippin' awesome!

I'm an admin from another forum (lowerleaguemanager.com/forum all about playing football manager without any cheating!) and hope to be part of something lively and informative here.

The last time I played a game that hooked me like Banished, was the original TTD, and then that got Mod-ed and remade and all sorts. Hopefully Banished can flourish now the Mod kit is here.

Anyway, :hello:

I just wanted to thank you all for your hard work on the present and upcoming mods!  I loved this game when I first bought it, and the new mods have made it fun to play again. I am really looking forward to the overall being planned under the Blackwood Mods.  Thanks again all!
