Aim of the mod

Natural Diversity is my attempt to make the world of banished resemble real nature more closely. This light version only contains new models for Herbs, Onions, Roots and Mushrooms. The full mod, which includes many more features, can be found here: 

Usage details

  • This mod requires the 1.0.7 Beta version of the game.
  • This mod will require a new game in order to work.
  • All models are included in the full version of Natural Diversity. It is therefore not necessary to use this Light version if you already have the full version enabled.
  • There should be virtually no conflicts between this mod and any other mods, unless there are any that change the models of these natural resources. To ensure that it works correctly, it is advised to load this mod at the top of the list.



Many new models for herbs, onions, roots and mushrooms

One of my biggest points of critique for the base game is the lack of attention that was given to the models for the natural resources. Not only are some of them completely unrealistic (onions do not grow lying in bundles on the forest floor!), it is also rather boring to see the same model many times over. Therefore this mod introduces 24 new models for herbs, 6 new onions, 18 root variants and 12 mushrooms. These will replace the old models.



Future plans

As Natural Diversity is developed further, I will continue to release Light versions, including only reworked models of existing resources.



The development of this mod would not have been possible without the help and support of many people in this wonderful community. Therefore I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to anyone who has ever written a tutorial, answered a question, given a suggestion, tested the Beta or has expressed their support for my work in any kind of way. You are a lovely bunch of people.

Furthermore, I wish to express a special thank you to @Necora and @Ketchup for the many times that they’ve answered my questions with lengthy and detailed explanations. No only are they highly skilled modders, they are also kind and patient enough to share their sometimes hard-earned knowledge with beginners like me.
