    Version 1.1


    Despo20 Medieval - D20 Medieval Houses "Large and nice medieval houses with optional accessory buildings" The Mod includes: - New 2 story Medieval House that accommodates one family of six. 2 F key variants; - New 3 story Medieval House that accommodates one family of seven; - New Accessory Storage with 2 F key variants; - New Large Accessory Storage; - Compiled using the new Community Mod Tool Bar. Coming soon: - Other types of accessory buildings; - More F key variants. The Accessory Storage is designed to be integrated with the 2 story house, but it was modeled to be used also alone. In the same way the Accessory Storage Large can be integrated with the 3 story house. Acknowledgements I would not be able to realize this Mod without the help of this magnificent community! Thanks @Discrepancy, @Ketchup, @Kralyerg, @Necora for sharing your knowledge with me. Thanks also go out to all who have supported me during the development of this first Mod (I hope this will be the first of many ).

    Another week has passed, so it's time for sneak peek #3! This week I have worked on quite a few different things, mainly consisting of bits and pieces for several ideas. Coincidentally there is a recurring theme though.. water! I guess @Necora inspired me with his wonderful riffle mod! Firstly, the reeds of last week received an upgrade (they now have leaves), and I started work on the first variant. This one is a Phragmites australis, a widespread species which is commonly used for thatching. Secondly, I have been looking at other ways to improve the natural look of the rivers. I am currently testing the automatic spawning of rocks on the riverbed. These are decorative only, the bannies can't reach them, and they don't block the construction of bridges or semi-aquatic buildings. The current meshes were not intended to be water rocks, so if you think they look a bit weird then we are in agreement. Just see these screens as a 'proof of concept' ;). I intend to make other meshes that are flatter, as the erroding power of the water would make them. Thirdly, the plans for the thatch production chain are taking shape nicely, and it's definitely going to be included in the next version of the mod. I will share more information on how the chain is going to work exactly once there is something to show . And then, last but most certainly not least, I have made a very exciting discovery yesterday evening. While I was testing an idea for one of the buildings of the production chain, I created something that I didn't even think would actually be possible. I made a little video of it being placed, just to prove that this is not a late April fools joke . https://webmshare.com/play/rZw9D Indeed, it is a placeable pool of water! It looks exactly like the normal water, though ofcourse it is entirely decorational. I have not yet tested if this could be used to make custom rivers and such, but theoretically it should be possible. I will have to play around a bit to see if I can make connecting pieces. If I manage to create such a 'custom water tool' it will not be a part of Natural Diversity though, as it wouldn't fit within the focus of this mod. I'm thinking about adding it to the decoration pack that I promised, or just making it a separate mod all together. That's it for this week, please share any thoughts or ideas !

    Hi I'm new here and french (so, please, be indulgent with my not totally good english but you can correct me, I'm in an english community to learn, too ) I like the Banished game since his release but I'm not a big player. I play one hour a day, one hour a week, or not at all for a long time. So, I often do a new game, lol ! And, I never finish a CC mod But I really like CC mods I'm not a modder, just a totally fan of Black Liquid Team work on Banished game. So, nice to meet you all

    I have two so far (very large, lakes) that I like because of the rivers, streams and lakes. The top one because you can almost get like a 'coastal city' in the Northwest part of the map and almost every lake is connected to the main river so no canals needed for traders. Some inconvenient hill locations but I don't mind those. And this second one has a pretty decent sized island in the river bend.

    That is correct. They weigh 1, flagged as textile. They are basically an IOU between the trader and yourself and a trader... They can only be 'produced' at the 'New Styth Tower', the old tower will not generate them.

    I used to be irked by that, too... but it's the way it goes in Banished... I now take upgrades slowly, 1 by 1... so I hit the upgrade button for one building only, then move on and just do my thing... before I know it, I have restructured whole areas, without actually seeing a single rebuild...

    Thanks! @Necora Actually the water doesn't appear by itself, only if you would lower the ground very close to an existing river or lake. I had to adapt the RiverMaterial.srsl to be able to create it manually, the mesh is just a plane. For the sloping bank I used a floor mesh like the quarry does. Then I used the decal to make it show the right terrain under the water.

    They are the shore rocks and should be right next to the older CC rocks in the ghost deco menu. If I remember right there are three buttons, large rocks, small rocks, and shore rocks.

    a fire station is can act as a well ... yes it is possible. but the game doesnt allow a profession/worker assigned to it though, it would conflict a special "hard coded" feature which turn the citizens into "firemen" when a fire appears in game.

    I knew if you went down far enough then water appeared, but how did you get the nice sloping bank and round shape? i tried to do this for a hill but it just raised the whole square... although I didn't try very hard.

    @Jafar_the_Barmecide @QueryEverything while I visited Ballarat & Bendigo decades ago, I lived in Kalgoorlie for about a decade. If we went for an Aussie mod for the Kalgoorlie region I think we would have to ask for hessian & timber houses for the early buildings and wild (i.e. feral) goats and camels to go alongside the kangaroos!

    If you're using the standalone Tropical Greenhouse mod alongside CC 1.75, then it probably won't work correctly, since the greenhouse hasn't been updated for 1.0.7. You can use the 1.0.7 compatibility mod to force it to work. The compatibility mod was made for MegaMod, but it should work fine with any combination of individual mods that are a part of MM, if you're not using MM itself.

    @Kralyerg have you ever seen (in Victoria): Sovereign Hill (Ballarat); Central Deborah Gold Mine (Bendigo) and the ever lovely Port of Echuca (Echuca/Moama); they have always been on my wishlist when it comes to Western theme / Gold rush theme Both Bendigo & Port of Echuca aren't replica towns, they are still the original towns & centres, Sovereign Hill is a replica, but it's a working town, everything is built & working as it originally did. Port of Echuca is Australia's largest working inland port, and has one of the largest collections of working, original (some replica, some new) paddle steamers (I had previously requested a model a few months back, haha ) and I think any of these towns would be ideal to fit into Banished It fits a lot of the landscapes, and the themes. Just some ideas ...

    I don't mind the generic resources but I would like to see specific results when processing them. You can tin spinach and tomatoes but they come out of the tinnery as generic tinned vegetables. You can make wine from grapes and strawberries but you don't get "strawberry wine" just wine. I was just the teensiest bit disappointed when I realised that. It's probably best however that some things come out as just "tinned vegetables" because tinned lettuce or cucumber sounds particularly disgusting.

    The Tropical Greenhouse, which uses bonemeal, is not part of CC; it's a separate mod HERE. It's included in MegaMod or you can add it separately.

    Bonemeal can be used by the Apothecary to make Healing Poultices. Any excess can be uses for Trade.
