i use the seasonFX to get the plowed fields. that is how i noticed yours isn't working. if you build any modded townhalls,make a save before you place them. a few crash if you click on them before they are built.it looks like you upgraded the DS small village and coud have taken the older 1 out.

I have only used Ds's village crop fields till now, would those be affected by seasonal FX?
It appears I still have the old Ds village stuff indeed, bummer.
I haven't had a crash on Town Halls as of yet, this is a one-time thing after they are build or is this always a possibility? I'll keep in mind to save beforehand, thanks!:)

mainly it has happened to the pine mod TH.i mentioned it cause you do have some of NECORA's mods. the crash only happened when you click on the building while it was being built.after the TH's were built they all worked. your fields will follow the highest mod that affects them.  the way you have the mods listed ,the RK should be controlling the field texture. the old  DS small village does work, the only issue i did see with some tests was a vendor stuck in a loop. couldn't drop odd flagged items. it has been a while i cant remember which item it was. i liked that split market style. so no major troubles.

Notes on the council meeting of Oktober 4th AD 1646
The Grimgerghens have completed their house extension and have started to redesign the older part in the new style. Furthermore a new house was build by the bay to allow the newly wedded  Haywardo Haynes and Katarin Mersey to live closer to their bayside occupations. This includes the gathering of sand so that the Colony may start producing glass once construction on the glassworks has been finalized.
Consuelle Germain has paid her 7 years of indenture to the Grimberghen family in full and is by contract and council verdict now a free planter and shall be granted a house and land near the bay

The spur of growth in the colony has severely reduced our log stockpiles and we are hard pressed not to cut down the surrounding forests to keep ourselves warm in the winter. We will have to look further out for the procurement of the near limitless supplies of wood.
A decree has been made to survey the surrounding land for the purpose of a future burger wood.
In March of this year we welcomed the 5th child of Humbert and Adalia Haynes, Izabel.

Accounting:
-90 of Squash
-Rye of 442

Govenor’s log of December 20th AD 1646
A special council meeting was called for and promptly gathered on this day.
An Indian trader came by our port; said to be from the Glowhill tribe. While we had no great use for the meat he was selling, of a fine a quality as they might be, we obliged him nonetheless. The council decrees hereby the construction of a tentative trading post for more lucrative goods at the bay street to accommodate trade with the savages.

Singed,
Gov. Z. Glowbrenn


_____________________________________________________________________________

Notes on the Council meeting of Septemer 11th AD 1647
Darney Mersey was born to Zecharia and Loycely Mersey this april. Landy Haynes was born on a rainy day in June. Analiana Amalia Grimberghen was born a nights ago to Myrone and Winifreda.
A courier from the Harfort colony, more news from the civil war in Britain it seems that our benefactor King Charles has all but lost the war as his army was soundly beaten at the Battle of Naseby nearly a year ago.
It was thusly decreed to prioritize construction of the common house for the sheltering of any such Royalists which would choose to flee prosecution by the Roundheads.

Passing travelers from the Breukelen colony informed us of the death of Frederick Henry in the Netherlands, they had been successful in diminishing the Spanish rule over their country and he has been succeeded by his son, William II. The Grimberghens are skeptical this will end the war, but there is hope.

Notes on the Council meeting on November 18th AD 1648
Giann Glowbrenn was born in February of this year, being the 5th child and 3rd daughter to Zachery and Anasta.
During the warm month of June Consuelle Germain and Mathen Mersey where married. Two months later their daughter Errold Germain was born (Mathen has been largely disowned by Zacheria Mersey) they will move into Consuelle’s Bay Street home after its completion.
In hopes to alleviate the colonies’ constant lack of wood and in prospect of making a trade out of surplus logs and in accordance to the decree of 1646, the glade West of Haynestown has been decreed as a logging area, thence to be known as Westerwood, and the construction of a foresters lodge has been commenced.
In early May a ragged vagabond calling himself Marceli approached Loycelyne at the docks. He offered the town 33 kegs of mead, a most welcome spirit in the cold winters in these parts, which we traded for 23 leather skins. He also had sacks of Turkish Coffee, which we declined upon.

Notes on the Council meeting of September 28th AD 1649
As of this date , as per decree and in accordance with the Foundation of 1639, this council has elected Zecharia Mersey to be the Govenor of the Haynestown Colony.
This February the new Garmain residence was completed on the Bay street, while construction on other new housings and the glassworks still continues. The Westerwood forestry was completed in May of this year and Princes Haynes, having had years of experience at the lumberyard as well as with the tending to plants, has taken charge of the proceedings.
In June Hershelby Mersey and Kamerica Chaarason were betrothed and Tomas Grimberghen was born to Myrone and Winifreda, being their 6th child and 5th daughter. In September, the girl Brean Glowbrenn was born, the first child of Edgardner and Loycelyne.
A French trader by the name of Brion ported in from whom we traded some fine fashionable suits and some sturdy canvas cloaks for 56 of our combed wool. Most of us have been walking around in nothing but rags and sacks for many years now. This novelty prompted the general public to demand accommodations in this matter and it is thusly that this council decrees the construction of a tailor to be commenced once the forester and glassworks have been completed.

Accounting:
-18 of squash in a rotten harvest

This March marked the decennial of our colony, and as such, the Council was given to reflection.
While we have seen a steady and prosperous growth in this time, it was deemed that we had been too secluded. Our community is hardly known outside of the neighboring settlements. It is thusly, with the continued growth and influx of new blood in mind, that the ruling Council has decreed the building of a Town Hall, which will serve the people of the community in providing a court of Law. Furthermore, it is to strengthen the bonds with both the Kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland as well as the Dutch Republic, as to promote the coming of new colonists.
Thus we agree, decree and sing upon,

Governor Zecheria Mersey and the ruling Counsil of Haynestown being, Humbert Haynes, Zachery Glowbrenn, Myrone Grimberghen, Salvah Chaarason

Council notes oktober 20th AD 1650, a year of turmoil and ill fortune.
In Oktober of last the year construction of a new granary to store the vast amounts of Rye and preserved Mutton was completed in an eager rush so that the new harvest might not rot before the winter sets in.
In December a Boston trader ported in with whom we traded 330 cubes of Whale Blubber with which we will be able to make candles for the dark months
Births and Deaths:
Clarench Germain, second son to Mathen and Consuelle Germain was born on a cold day in January.
Kenda Glowbrenn was born in April as the first son of Kurtiss Mersey and Emeryl Glowbrenn. Zechary demanded the Glowbrenn name to be used as the couple still lives on the family estate.
In the same month Skyleigh Mersey was born, the 7th child of Zecharia and Loycely.

It is with great sadness that the Council received the news that the loathsome Roundheads had captured and, under the pretense of justice, murdered him in public, our benefactor and liege his Mayesty Charles I. Following this, the dastardsous Cromwell proclaimed himself ruler of a newly formed British Comonwealth to which we are lawfully imparted. God save our people and the times to come.

This July the Council was forced to sit and rule as Court of Law, for the first time since its founding. See the report of the First Assembly of July 21st 1650. Let it hereby be  known that our community does not fully share the strict dedications of the rulers of the Connecticut or even the Massechusets Bay Colonies, however, we are a god-fearing people and will not abide the heinous and uncouth acts such as they were. The delivered sentences maybe mild in the eyes of our Puritan neighbors, but it is with resolve that we vow to form a solid and unwavering justice system in good faith and in standards with common sense and decency.

For 10 years the colony has been making due with homebrewn beverages and heated water from the well, none of which are very wholesome for the humors. With the goodly amounts of wild fruits growing in these parts, it was deemed adequate to start producing our own spirits. To such the ruling hereby Decrees the construction of a brewery.

In February of this year we bought some quality kegs from a Swedish trader calling into our port.
In early March the glassworks by the bay were finally finished, this month the first glass plates where produced by Katarin and Haywardo.

In June Anjane, second daughter of Edgardian Glowbrenn and Loycele Mersey was born.
During a snowstorm in January Denisha Chaarason , first daughter to Salvah Chaarason and Princes Haynes was born.

Notes on the Council meeting of September 28th AD 1652
In February we finished work on the boarding house for the accommodation of any new settlers of our colony.
March saw the completion of our grand Town hall, in which the future and current town meetings will be held. This includes Court of Law assemblies and Sunday mass for which the Haynes house has been proven to be too crowded for a long time. Once the construction of the currently decreed buildings has been completed the Council hereby decrees the construction of a proper House of Worship.

In May a French trading sloop from the off-shore anchored Cygne, informed us that Cromwell and his parliament had singed an act as of last year that prohibits any under the rule of England (or The Commonwealth as he would have it known) from importing from or exporting to any but ships under the English flag. This preposterous idea has not been received well by the Council and as such will only be enforced at the Councel’s own discretion. The Frenchman had naught but sour yogurt and detestable horse meat so we gladly obliged the act on this occasion.

In June the girl Dayle Grimberghen was born to Myrone and Winifreda.
In late August Reana Glowbrenn, first daughter and second child to Kurtiss Mersey and Emerly Glowbrenn was born.
Early September Savannamae Germain, first daughter and third child to Mathen and Consuelle Germain was born.

In November of last year the construction of both the bayside warehouse as well as the tailor, to which Loycely Mersey has taken the task, were completed.

In December AD 1652 Madonnie Glowbrenn, third daughter of Edgardner Glowbrenn and Loycelyne Haynes was born.
In march of this year Harron Chaarason, second daughter to was born to Salvah Chaarason and Princes Haynes was born.

In January of this year a Welsh trader ported in with whom we traded 28 skins of leather for construction components and finely shaped hull wood. Furthermore, he imparted that the Old Isles are now in a state of War with the Dutch Republic and there is even talk of another civil war with many, as we are, outraged by the implications of the Act.

In the same month, the Council received word from Hartford that John Haynes, former Governor of the Massachusetts Bay and Connecticut Colonies had suddenly died, the Haynes family promptly made the trip there to share in the mourning and gift the gloves to their kin.

As decreed, in June the construction of the modest Four Pines Parish was completed and Emerly Glowbrenn is now residing over the house of our lord.
With the wealth of fruits growing in our regions and with the need for more sustainable liquids it has been deemed well to set up the production of alcoholic beverages. An Ale house and a meadery, with bees kept by the people of the town, are to be constructed and, in due time, a pub or tavern to serve the community after work days.

Thanks @kid1293 !:) Yes, there would have been quite some flogging and shaming to uphold standards and good standings. In the case of these major crimes, however, banishment was the least one could hope for when found guilty. Executions and deportation back to England(in later times) were way more common.
But indeed, I have no idea how long I will be able to control the population from going fully inbred and if I will be able to banish all wrongdoers; it takes quite some time to get Bannies to construct something off the grid. In time there probably will form an outlaw/outcast town on its own accord.:)

News reached us that, in light of their strive for purity, prudence and goodlyness, Massechusets Bay Colony has banned the celebration of  Chistmas. Let it hereby be know that the Haynestown Colony will do no such thing as it is a festive period where the strengthening of the community bonds becomes as strong as can be. It is both a most wholesome and humbling day to reflect on our lives and that of our Lord.

State of the Colony Genealogy- 1665
« Reply #24 on: January 29, 2019, 05:56:51 AM »
State of  the Colony Genealogy- 1665
I am a bit behind on the council reports (it takes some time to put my notes into semi-correct prose), but I wanted to give a first look into the genealogical make-up of the colony.
As of 1665 we are well into the second generation, with many of the 1.5 generation (foreign born children of the first colonists) having assumed important roles and managing parts of the family estate.

I am having trouble getting Nomads to come; it’s a small miracle that there has been only a single solid case of incestuous marriage and offspring. It is, however, getting tight and new blood is desperately needed to liven things up. I'm not sure if CC's prerequisites still hold or that RK's Collection has changed them.
I have, for all safety, built the vanilla trading post and rural market just to make sure.

So let’s see about the statistics, 26 year 1665, of the colony. For starters, the family name composition(both living and dead) is as follows.
1. Glowbrenn, 23% (17)
 2. Haynes, 20% (15)
 3. Mersey, 18% (13)
 4. Grimberghen, 12% (9)
 5. Chaarason, 9% (7)
 6. Germain, 8% (6)
 7. van Grimberghen, 5% (4)
 8. [No Surname], 1% (1)

Total unique surnames: 8
Total people: 72
Number of families: 19
Males: 34
Females: 38

Now for the individual families. You can find their descendant charts attached to this post.

The Glowbrenns are forming a very solid Dynasty; with them forcing the surname to any child born on their premise, they are fast growing. Kurtiss and Emerly have, thus far, made sure that this generation is largely theirs. The resend bonding between 21 year-old Neva Haynes and 7 year-old Orio is a predicament; they will have 2 years to make children; and even as such that is a questionable goal.
Overall the Glowbrenn bloodline is very well mixed while retaining its family name.

The town’s namesake family, the Haynes, still are a very strong contender. They generally have more breath for the future as their first generation is still very much actively making new children. In the current generation they have lost out on some of their surname usage, but there is much to come.
The Haynes are also well mixed between the families.

The Merseys are on the rise; with 8 first generation and 19 second generation children they are quite big; however, owning to the fact that they have had relatively many girls, much of their family name is absent in the current generation.

The Grimberghens are definitely the most interesting thus far. They have know a short time of prosperity but have mostly seen adversity. The first point of interest is, of course, their 1.5 generation incestuous branch. As I am keeping record as the town hall would and the offending Dandro  and Tajaney have been banished, this is where their information stops. However; during their exile in the woods they produced two more children after which Dandro poisoned himself and died while testing berries he found in the woods. Not sure how this is going to play out in the long run or is I should record their progression just for the interest of it; what do you think?
The second  point of interest is Consuelle Germain, their freed indentured servant, who has started a whole new dynasty.
Thirdly, there is the new practice of naming any children born to father not of the family ‘van Grimberghen’, which has spawned the new branch.
There is still hope for the family but I’m afraid they will have very little presence by the end of the century.

The Chaarason familly story has been great to follow, bringing in some Moroccan culture to the colony. With Salvah’s marriage to the eldest daughter of the Governor, Princes Haynes, he became a council member and formed a strong bond with one of the most influential families.
The children he had with his first wife have gone on to prosper but none of their children carry on the name. The current children have bright future ahead of them.

Lastly, the Germains, with Matriarch Consuelle in front is the youngest dynasty of the colony which has been building to make a name for itself around the Baystreet area.

I am planning on doing a street plan of the colony with demarcations for properties as a nice time-frame and reference for locations which will become increasingly prevalent in the reports.
As a few notes aside: I have been making links to the Counsil reports in the OP so you can get back to where you left of. I have also added the current implementation plans for the English taxes; if you have any tips or see any factual historic errors, let me know!
Thanks for reading.

@1 Thanks!:) Gramps, gives many ways of visualizing the data.

@brads3 Well, I'm not using any, I think? I know CC changes the prerequisites to having just a TH and vanilla TP. I thought RK's dock TP would work but sadly not yet.
I am building Kid's Immigration Office from his Small Town Houses, does that do the same thing? I might want to check out on of those mods indeed; having a colony without anything but the initial colonist is kinda odd. Not unheard of, since many small back country colonies didn't really grow until the industrial revolution. But it would be nice to have some new family names.:P

yes,the immigration office should bring some. some of the catchers bring them every so many years. the nomad welcome sign gives you some control as to how large the groups are.

Council Reports of 1660-1664
« Reply #29 on: January 30, 2019, 06:33:31 AM »
Notes on the Council meeting of October 26th AD 1660
The Mersey family planned their new estate on the other side of their sheep pen and finished it later on in the year.
A shortage in tools and iron has plagued the colony due to the demand of iron by the construction hall. A rush in firewood was demanded and work at the construction hall interrupted for the time being.
‘t was a lazy year and brooding summer in otherwise tense times.

Accounting:
-72 Melons
-575 of Squash
-1034 of Rye
-24 kegs of mead


Singed,
Governor Zecheria Mersey

Notes on the Council meeting of October 5th AD 1661
Early this year the colony was notified of a new Act that had been passed by the ruling Parliament in last year’s autumn, namely the ‘An Act for the Encourageing and increasing of Shipping and Navigation’.
We had hoped for more reinstitution of the charters and foundations, amongst which, our own, with the reign of His Majesty Charles II. It appears those hopes were futile and this new act only strengthens those decrees and laws made by the Act of 1651. We are through this, hereby once again pressed to only trade with any under the English flag. Furthermore taxes on such interactions are to be included with a 2% taxation on the goods traded in order to pay for their shipping.
The ruling Council, once again, stresses the absurdity of these rules. We are to appoint a Naval Officer who is to see to it that the stated rulings are enacted upon. The Council hereby elects to coincide this task with that of the position of Governor.
In December a French trader from up north tried to offer us horse meat, nuts and bison in corn. We were forced to acquiesce to the terms of the Navigation Act.

In January Krissa Glowbrenn was betrothed to Errold Germain and the moved into the new Glowbrenn estate east-wing.
September 1661 Clarche and Harron moved into the old Mersey house as they were betrothed.
After long years of disrepair and unused, the large boardinghouse along the main road collapsed during a storm in August.  The repair has been decreed so that the town is ready when new settlers arrive.
June, our thriving flock of leghorn chickens developed the pox and had to be slaughtered on the instant.

Accounting:
At the time of the meeting the last of the Rye had yet to be harvested. The tool shortage we suffer is starting to hinder us dearly. The Council urges the colony to spend the winter in favor of the production of iron. To this end a new smelter will be constructed.
942 of Rye
538 of Squash
69 of Melons
12 Kegs of Mead

Singed,
Governor Zecheria Mersey and the ruling Council of Haynestown

Lottelie Glowbrenn, first child and daughter to Errold Germain and Krissa Glowbrenn.
In June Arlyie Chaarason was born, third daughter of Dandreas Chaarason and Lethany Grimberghen.

July, second forge was finished and our iron shortages were finally made to nothing within the year.
In September the food market on the main street was completed to further accommodate the supply  of food between town and Baystreet.
With the supply of iron balanced, the production of construction materials was re-initiated.
In February traded 75 cones of salt and 5 weapons
In April a trader ported in, we traded 25 stacks of roof tiles and some military supplies.

Notes on the Council meeting of October 19th AD 1663
January saw the production of the new building supplies.
Consequently, work resumed on the first tavern which opened in February, being named the Sheep’S Pen Pub.
Dayle started working in the mill when it was completed. The Tavern has been enlarged with a small bakery.

In February Vergio Haynes, second son of Landy Haynes and Florina Mersey was born.
In May Ottie Germain, third child and second son to Mathen and Consuelle Germain was born.
This month, Talonso Mersey, first child and son to Darney Mersey and Giann Glowbrenn was born.

In May a trading sloop ported in from which we bought an assortment of both rough and finely hardened tools for 90 of our wool. This allowed the blacksmiths to pause their duties for a while.
Another French trader moored in soon after but, them being French and reeking, we had to decline.
In June the brown chicken flock had grown enough to split them over the two pens, the second one having been vacant since the Chicken’S pox of last year.

Accounting:
-580 of Squash
-924 of Rye.
-72 melons
-24 Mead

£9,- taxes in debt.

Notes on the Council meeting of November 20th AD 1664
November of last year Lamario Glowbrenn, first son of newly-wed Errold Germain and Krissa Glowbrenn was born.
That December a trader ported in with fresh cheesebreads and limes of which we bought a 150 of the latter to liven up our holy day feast.
Not long after a Dutchman ported in of whom we bought 25 muskets; if the Indians attack us we should be prepared.”

More news from Parliament. Another act, namely the An Act for the Encouragement of Trade, has been passed in England; yet again limiting raising taxes on our exported goods to England, with special additions to Tabacho and Cotton. Neither is produced or as of yet imported into this colony. However, the new 4% trade tax on our dealings does harm us.
As no new settlers have traveld these parts in the 25 years of the colony, the Council decreed yet more need be done to stimulate migrants and fortune seekers from the old world.
- new trading post was decreed to be constructed on the North bay.
-An immigrations office is to be constructed on the Main street to orderly check in any who would settle here
-A larger market will be needed to accommodate expansion and trade.

The Sheep’S Pen baker was completed in May but as the water from the well would not suffice for our bread a new pump was been decreed near the south bayside.

In June Aylie van Grimberghen was born to Dandreas Chaarason and LEthany Grimberghen.
In June the Dutchman trader returned, this time we traded 12 canon and a bar of silver for 510 of our wool. With these lands turning more grim each year, our colony looks towards more means of self-defense.
As such a new office of Militia is decreed to be constructed besides the new North bay trading post.

This month another trader passed by from whom we bought some fine furniture.
With the surface boulders fast depleting as our town grows larger, and with the future expansion in mind, the Council has decreed for the prospecting of a stone mine in the near future.

Accounting:
-1095 of Rye
-536 of Squash
-72 Water Melons
-18 Kegs of Mead


Singed,
Governor Salvah Chaarason and the ruling Council of Haynestown, being, Humbert Haynes, Zacharaia Mersey, Myrone Grimberghen, Zachery Glowbrenn
