O.k. new setup (Vanilla - Mods - College - 3 teachers for 100 students - Badlands (like flatlands, but apparantly different)):

Starting out with some catheres huts, hunters cabins, fishing cabins a couple of farms etc. Started the trading posts with some firewood. As soon as the large amounts of food started rolling in, and the apple Ale econemy was up an running, I demolished the food production and setup this:

Trading posts

Then Stockpiles

Then a bundch of storage barns

Then a cube of 12 Breweries (close to trading posts = not a long way to transport those lovely apple ales of ours)

Next to that cube - a market and houses (on both sides)

Then a cube of 11 storage barns

Then a cube of a chapel and a cementary (room for 63 good souls) + 2 Woodcutters and some stockpiles)

Then a cube of 11 storage barns

Then a cube of a college, a hospital, some stockpiles and a well.

Then a cube of storage barns. Etc.

Trying to do a market + 24 houses, then a market etc. next to them. Going to demolish the storage barns, when reacing the limit for building more houses.

Up to 2,7 mill stockpiled food right now. Reaching for 10 mill, before expanding the houses a lot (adding 3-9 houses a year for now)
