    Yes, taking your time is a good idea... For that, playing at x10 is not a good idea... I have thousands of hours, and I never play at x10, not even x5. Opposed to what others may say, I recommend to play the vanilla achievements - not to get the achievements, but they are a good way to learn the ins and outs of Banished - like an extended tutorial. Once you have "won" the Mountain Men, you probably know all about food shortages, assigning jobs and controlling population growth.

    All these other people must think we're crazy, talking about a radio station. But commercial radio was mind-numbingly boring and the Jays had swearing DJs and songs with rude words in them and songs and bands that you've never heard of before - and no ads! What else could young people want! I also remember Uncle Dougie (who started out on Double J, surprise surprise) and his various characters. Some of his old stuff is on youtube.

    Yeah Double J was not a station that I had any connection to because they only broadcast in Sydney and I was on the other side of the country. I was living in Sydney in the mid-80s and by that time they had changed to 2JJJ and were morphing into Triple J, however they weren't any better than the other stations in my opinion and I didn't listen to them much (my personal fav Sydney station at the time was Triple M with the likes of Doug Mulray & Johnno Coleman as DJs). By the time Triple J had began broadcasting nationwide I was living in Kalgoorlie and when you have two radio stations, one local and one the government owned national broadcaster, Triple J was something pretty damned new & amazing for most folks in a country town. Triple J wasn't anything new to me because I had lived in a a few other places by then (Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Sydney) but for those people who'd only lived in Kalgoorlie or thereabouts it was a big deal.

    Hey there! I don't guess I'm "new" but I certainly haven't been around much. I would check in from time to time to see what the latest update is and to make sure I have the latest (and greatest) mod. I wish I was a modder and/or game designer because I have TONS of ideas, but no skill to do them. I love CC and Banished and world building in general. I'm a 30 year old female living in the Kansas City area in the US. I'm married to a gamer (who's responsible for turning me into a nerd! 🤓). When I'm not chilling with my husband and kiddo, I'm a fantasy writer (hence the ideas...). 😎

    Thank you I appreciate it. I'll check out the mussel files this week as I get a chance. @Discrepancy that is cool, I think they will go well together esp. as I am going for more ocean fish (I pretend that the river is connected to the ocean just around the corner!). I have to say though, this modeling is addictive.... (I know - the smoke is in the wrong place on one of them... it is late)

    @cainacol12 Do you visit WOB? Kid and Discrepancy made a Christmas mod which includes some Christmas door wreaths. Kid and I are working on some non-Christmas wreaths and other door decorations at the moment. My job for this week is to finish some textures and send them to him. They'll probably be out before Christmas. One thing about them though is that they are quite small, and unless you use zoom hack you don't see a lot of detail. I do like your doormat idea. We might be able to include some doormats at a later date, but it won't be straight away.

    @Discrepancy Sort of like these. I can't remember what they are called. I know they are very popular for holidays but where I live in ct, people have them all year round. All different styles and colors to match themes, holidays, and seasons.

    very nice idea. I have a couple of Welcome Signs in my mod: DS Fences & Decorations v1.2 also there are some Direction signs, but I like the idea of some door mats or similar... one day I will do this. What do you mean by 'front door pieces' ?

    Could I interest any of you wonderful modders out there to make a whole bunch of welcome mats, signs and front door pieces. I've been really wanting some for my newest town. They just seem like they would be the perfect touch to some of my weathier houses. I know they mostlikey dont fit the time but hey who cares.

    I played at 1x and plan on sticking to that. I threw it up 10x only to see what was going to happen with the stockpile! I didn't even save it at that point because to me, 10x made me miss too much. But, now I know what to fix.

    OK, I figured it out! It was simply my lack of experience and woefully wanting management skills. I threw the time scale up to 10x and waited. 2 years later, they got around to it, though they piled resources all around the village, first! I still need to get to know the game better. Nuance is everything, I'm guessing.... I need to take it slower, I think, and not create a backlog of projects for my people!

    Not really a known problem... did you wait for it to be completely demolished, or did you try to re-build it while demolishing was still going on? If so, you might have just "confused the system"...

    As Cainacol said - you waste the time already spent on education... plus the kids who leave school will never return, so be uneducated for the rest of their life... it's really a "last resort" measure, I'd always see first if there are other professions that you can reassign temporarily, e.g. fishermen or gatherers, or even a blacksmith or a tailor or such (who can do other stuff for quite some time before tools or clothes are really depleted)...

    And this is exactly the way most people have typically dealt with these sorts of things, this is the basic idea of tolerance - as in "I don't personally like it, but I do not believe in interfering with those people who do like it". What @rejectedegg talks about is basically how we as adults should be dealing with these situations, for example one of my friends reads his wife's supernatural romance novels and enjoys them, I don't enjoy supernatural romance stories but I don't believe that I have any right to dictate what he reads and enjoys. In regards to these sorts of mod, it's typically been a vocal but small group who have railed against them and unfortunately, to keep the peace those people who made/supported the mods have either stopped talking about it or stopped making them and that means that those of us who don't have a problem with them end up missing out on new content - and that is what annoys me the most!

    Actually, it does help. Currently, I only have 1 student (I built it very early)! I don't know why I didn't consider closing it as I've closed other buildings, depending upon the season and their stock. Thanks. I'll do it as soon as I start up the game again.

    @Trasd told you to play with caution lol For the school problem you could wait until they all graduate but if your really in a pinch you can close the school (i.e turning off the work button) and all of the children will imediantly become laborers. plus side: you get your workers up quickly and you can fix it if you have been to quick to build a school before your ready (I'm guilty of this a lot of the time) Down side: all those children will not be educated when they go back to the work force so you end up wasting the time you spent starting their education and still having the problem of uneducated workers. Things to consider: I only do this when absolutely needed. If you have more than one school they will first move to the other school if it has avalible spaces. If there are not enough spaces they will fill the empty spots and then go to be laborers. A strategy I like to use ,now that its avalible to me, is to build the mini school (holds 5 students ) for early game. This get filled very quickly and then any other children will go directly to laborers. This gives you a pretty good balance of educated and uneducated laborers going into the mix. You end up getting the workers you need to maintain early growth while still having some students being educated and lessening the education gap. hope all this info helps.

    Double J was well before my time. But I did hop on board after they'd gone to the other capitals but before they went regional. For that we can thank Keating. He loved the J's.

    While I am one of those you spoke of, I do however agree with what you spoke about here. I think everyone has a mind of their own, a set of morals they follow or don't follow so on and so on. We are all different and to me that is Great While I am not a Lesbian, I do have some pretty awesome friends who are While I am not Black, I do have friends who are I am not prejudice, but I also just don't want how someone else lives their lives to be forced upon me. I will even most likely use some of what is being discussed here. I however will not use and don't like the Brothel part. Sorry If this can be made a stand alone mod, I am all for it. And even if it's not..... I don't have to build the Brothel... Simply put! We all have a mind of our own, and we all have the freedom of making our own choices (at least on a game we do).

    Well, I do like the different character of The North - the start conditions, the different balancing, chains, climate changes, monetary and trade systems and whatnot... and, last but not least, it's small size - I really enjoy an occasional game with a completely different system, different challenges, less overhead... I don't really need or want just about everything rolled into one mod... the more if we get more variants like Inka Pyramids, Rise of the Pharao, Amazon Jungles, The Blue Lotus, Castle Ichikawa and so on... why would I load up styles and eras that are completely unrelated?
