Flax Gardener/ Production
« on: August 25, 2020, 11:04:37 AM »
Good morning.

My girlfriend Lynn is playing a new game with RKEC 1.3.1 full. She wanted me to add in Kid's Forest Trader and some other mods of Kid's as well. Her previous games before trying RKEC had a "flax gardener" as she put it. I'm not sure what mods she used and she doesn't recall.

So I don't recall what mods had the flax production. I know she didn't use Necora's New Flora/flax patches because I told her I forgot how to set all that stuff up so I'm thinking she got the flax stuff from some of Kid's mods but I don't recall which of his mods had that. Can you help remind me please so I can re-add all of that? I think she just liked seeing it grow and she wanted to also harvest it to make clothing and whatever else you can use flax for.

As I said her current game is with RKEC 1.3.1 full and she gets flax in her inventory but it's from clearing space for building and from Gatherer's etc. I don't see any actual flax production in RKEC.

Thanks for the help.

EDIT: All I remember vaguely was that Kid's mods had a "clear flax" button and his tailoring pieces were able to make clothing from it - but again I forget which of his mods had that.

Hi. I am on the run ;D

I have a Flax Patch in Settlers.
The Gather Flax button comes from the New Flora mod.
New Flora puts it in the wild. Don't know if RKEC is the same. See you...

I'm thinking maybe she previously used Kid's Ghost Town mod. It had a flax gardener I think as part of it's paint production to upgrade buildings. Kid's Ghost Town is a starting mod so it's likely that the "clear flax" button came from that to gather the wild flax off the ground right?

So since she is trying out RKEC 1.3.1 full should I put Kid's Ghost Town above or below RKEC?

yes the ghost town is what i am thinking. with KID's workshop mod, the small tailor uses the flax to make linen clothing. very handy and a quick trade good.

flax is soo touchy since there are several variations. not all that use flax,use the same flax.it is really trial and error. even wrt seeds it becomes which seed? if you debug check a mod order, you usually have 2 or more flax. if you set up the pine mod with the new flora patch,that flax should be useable with KID's workplace tailor as well.

best idea for a new player is going to be experiment with different mods. find what items and look works for them. then organize a base mod order,goup of mods they are accustomed to that work for them. then add and adjust for different games.

As Kid said above - NewFlora Edit places flax to grow wild and is collected by laborers with gather flax button.  This flax is used by some of Kid's tailors to make linen clothes, including Kid Workplace or Workplace Village tailor.

Kid Settler mod has a flax patch where worker grows flax plants - the flax is also used in some of Kid's tailors.

Kid Ghost Town has a flax garden that produces linseed oil for use in making paint. 
edit - Kid Ghost Town flax garden produces flax or linseed oil


edit:  New Flora Edit was released in my Village Blog Abandoned - Aspenglow story 35 in reply #3  here:

RKEC: Flax and cotton is harvested from flowers, use the flower removal tool. Flax and cotton is converted into linen & cloth.
Use the regular tailor building its been modified to create different clothes and cloth material.

With RKEC you can buy flax seeds for farming in addition to harvesting the pretty blue flowers. It may also grow in the greenhouses, I can't remember offhand.

Flax is awesome for production of coats. Flax>Linen. With linen you can make both light coats and heavy coats.

Does the wild flax grow during certain times of the year, say Spring perhaps? Cotton too? I'm just wondering when it's best to try getting some via the collect flowers button. I use Necora's gather flax button for the wild stuff and Red's collect flowers button to try and get flax and cotton -  but I never get alot, barely any to be truthful. I may have to go the route of flax seeds but I don't even have a trader yet.

Yes, flax and cotton grow wild, beginning in the spring and continuing pretty late in the fall/early winter. Unfortunately, the "gather flowers" button does not get them. They can be harvested only by using the "gather almost everything" button. I spent a fair amount of time zoomed in, looking for these plants, and highlighting them one by one. They are identifiable, but unfortunately they also look a lot like flowers. There is a blue flower that is similar to flax (flax is a slightly deeper blue and the blooms are a different shape) and there is a flower that is similar to cotton (again, the blooms are discernibly different, and cotton is a very slightly brighter white). You need to be zoomed in pretty close to tell the difference. I was willing to do this micromanagement for a number of years because the payoff is significant.

If you were getting flax/cotton, it was likely from a forester, gatherer, florist, or fodder/thatch farmer, all of whom will harvest flax/cotton.

Another strategy for finding them could be to harvest all the flowers in an area, and then everything left that is blue or white would be flax or cotton. But that will leave you with a ton of flowers. Fortuantely perfume is an excellent trade good made from flowers, water, and glassware.

I was using RKEC by itself, so I don't know what buttons are available from other mods.
