Got a hour and a half to kill? Well, why not play a silly bout of Banished?
We're about to set up a hamlet in 10X mode.
Here are the rules, laws and ordinances of this challenge:
Use any map seed
Terrain type valleys
Terrain size medium
Starting conditions hard
Vanilla version or mods who don't allow for speedier construction allowed.
*No game pausing allowed. Lay off the space bar. The only pause you even can consider is the pause button on buildings under construction.
*As soon as game launches set speed to 10X. Yes, even before you position your windows.
*When you reach late spring year 10 the challenge is over. Take some screenshots, post them in this thread.
Now, who's the winner?
Let me propose a few criteria from which to judge:
* To pass you must have built at least:
- A town hall
- A market
- A trading post
(yes it's ridiculous to have them up this early. I said it was a silly challenge)
*To pass summa cum laude you must have:
-A food surplus of your population X 100
-More than four hearts
-More than four stars
-Housing for all, no houses to be cold
-No people without tools
-Built at least one: School, Boarding house, Tavern and Bridge
*Extra honors will be awarded to the one who:
-Has reaped at least one crop from a field or orchard
I tried this just now, and lazy ass that I am didn't pass laude. Screencaps added. It was a fun and very different way of playing than I am used to, though.
