@RedKetchup I choose terrain because of storyline and location on world map and the easy start condition that I am used to.  And yes  :) I do have the new animals and the grass and flowers, deadwood, new berries and nest with eggs.  :)  Everything looks great even on red terrain, Red  ;D  Taking baby-steps, plenty of places left on the map to later try RK terrains and start conditions.  Getting my feet wet at beach resort to get used to all the new things.  ;D  I hope it all goes well  :)

That is nice story topic, for the laborers.  But, so far, that red desert doesn't look like much of place one would go to for rest and relaxation.  I am sure you will make it be a good place out of that barren, hot, dry place.  :)

@galensgranny I don't have to do much of anything to hot dry barren desert, Red's beautiful fodder and flowers will do it for me.  :)

Oh oh, @ Goblin Girl, Do I want to know what Burning Manis?  :D

Well, Wikipedia has all sorts of hifalutin things to say about it.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_Man 
But really, it's a bunch of pot smoking hippies who gather in the desert for a few days each year and...do what pot smoking hippies do.  It's worth doing a google image search to get a better idea.

 ;D @Goblin Girl oh, no, no pot smoking hippies in Red Rock  :D  I believe there is a marijuana mod on banishedinfo site but I don't have it.  If they want to smoke they will have to shred a piece of deadwood.  ;D

@brads3 CCTerrains is mod with the red desert, it is 4th mod enabled, 10 or 11 mods above RKEC.  The story Intro mod list is the order my mods are in.  I have my mods divided into 4 categories, the mods in each of those 4 groups are in alphebetical order.. The groups are in that order in my mod list.  Listed are the mods that are enabled for this map

Chapter 1


  As you know, weary traveler, times have not been all that good in Banished World.  A mountain came down on the ancestors of Smallville's founders.  There has been extreme heat and cold, and severe flooding and drought.  There has been massive food shortages, and mass migrations.  The main river changed its course, and there has been trouble with pirates.  And yet we managed to survive and even enjoy ourselves from time to time.

  My name is Yvetter and my husband is Wavery.  We were very young and newlywed when we came here to the red desert from Riverboat Junction.  Mr. Red, the man in charge of canal building and inspections, said the riverboat resource merchants were not transporting enough stone to areas that needed it.  His associate Mr. Eb, who was quarry master at the time, suggested the red desert area as a good source of needed stone.  The recent drought uncovered a lot of surface stone and ores in that area that could fill the need until a proper quarry was put into operation.

  Riverboat Junction was a very old town, in fact, the oldest town in Smallville's world.  It was a bit rundown and overcrowded with workers, and there was trouble with pirates to the east and northeast.  Wavery and I wanted a safe place to raise a family, we wanted a fresh start.  We were 1 of 6 families to come here to start a quarry town.  We named it Red Rock.

 It was difficult traveling, we had 7 young children and a herd of dairy cows with us.  Once we settled into our homes we cleared a field to plant peas, built a pasture for the cows, and started building a school.  One of the girls became an adult before it was completed.  The area was recovering from the severe drought, there were now trees, thatch, wild flowers, and wild foods, many we had never seen before.  There were herds of deer and other wild animals and birds.  In late autumn we even found nests of eggs as well as plenty of deadwood for our cookfires.  By the end of that first year our storage barn was filled and 5 new babies had been born.  Our son Skylan was one of them.  We had high hopes that our town and our families would thrive here.

 :) Probably because of those two mods or one of them? Hunting & Gathering, Hunting Season.

I not know the mods but probably hunters kill more deer or so?

Now see where the story going to take us :)
