    View File Journey A complete gameplay expansion. After countless hours of development and testing, we are proud to bring you Colonial Charter 1.7 - Journey Manual Download: After clicking Download you will be redirected to google drive files and see this icon at the top right corner of a new page. Click it to download. Steam Workshop Download: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=849019386 Installing: Disable/Delete any previous version of Colonial Charter, enable Colonial Charter Journey in the mod menu. NEW GAMES ONLY: CC: Journey does require a new game. Introduction: Journey reflects a maturation of development of the Colonial Charter mod for Banished Game. Unlike in previous versions where we overhauled production and resources, with Journey you have more access to new buildings that utilise the existing chains. Many of the existing buildings have been revamped or replaced in entirety. In CC: Journey you'll have an opportunity to build a truly rustic themed settlement in entirety, or using the new city wall kit and related new buildings you can build your own mini empire. We have added in all new pine tree models to the game as well as some new map types to expand the flavour of Colonial Charter. New start conditions are available that offer a variety of new challenges. We also remastered the forest audio, to allow a more natural, serene atmosphere. We hope you'll enjoy playing Colonial Charter 1.7 - as usual, it was a lot of hard work involving many hours of creation and testing. Easily our most challenging mod to date. Friends and family were ignored for prolonged periods of "One... More... Turn..." as well as "I think this would look good... what happens if we add this new feature?". We hope to put the same amount of distance between you and your loved ones, for all the right reasons of course!

    Since I registered on the site, a few days ago, it has grown in me the desire to create mods. Obviously the first mod is a house And obviously again I'm following the Discrepancy's tutorial on WoB (thank you very much @Discrepancy ) I'm still trying to understand how to position in the right way the model over the placeBitArray and the placeBits, and I want to perfect the textures, but this is the result for now. I'm quite satisfied I have a question about AO: I used "Smart UV Project", like suggested by @Necora, I made the bake render and I've inverted the Image Colors, like suggested by @Discrepancy. Everything works fine, but in game there are a few white stripes between the faces, especially between wooden beams and the plaster facades. Did I do something wrong? I rely on you experienced modders

    Thank you all for the nice words and well wishes. I've made a complete recovery. Since my final surgery, I have had a bit of a rest with some down time. I haven't touched my computer in a couple of months. Instead I've been doing work on my house and spending time with my dog (he's outside barking right now actually). Anyways, it's nice to be back. I'll be building up my momentum again gradually, 2017 has been quite a ride so far

    I can understand why a modder would like all of their mods kept together. However, for those of us who aren't familiar with many of the 100+ mods included in MegaMod, keeping them separate would make it harder to find what I'm looking for. When I want to build a school, bakery, blacksmith, etc., I want to see all of those types of buildings in one group. I don't want to have to scan through multiple mods to find the different options. That's one of the major advantages to using MegaMod. (I don't want to go back to using the vanilla toolbar either; for me, who hasn't played vanilla Banished in an awfully long time, the Colonial Charter toolbar is the default toolbar.)

    A new week has started, which means that it is time to look back on the last in Sneak Peek #4! As the fourth week of development on Natural Diversity v1.1 has passed by, the main body of the update is slowly starting to take shape. So far you have seen the new berry bushes (to finish the gathering resources overhaul), and a beautification of the natural waters with reeds and rocks. This past week, we have worked hard on laying the foundation for a production chain for grasses and reeds. I say we, and that is not me referring to myself in majestic plural. It implies that the development of this mod is no longer in my hands alone. Some time ago the wonderfully talented Mr. @despo20 has kindly offered to aid me by designing the buildings required for this production chain, and I have accepted his offer gratefully. His architectural skills are far beyond my capabilities, and are already proving to be of great value for the quality of this mod. Though the rough division is that I will remain responsible for improvements to the natural environment and that Despo will take responsibility for the buildings, decisions on either are taken in mutual agreement. What you see of this mod may thus from now on be considered a team effort . The grasses and reeds production chain While developing the production chain, our main goal was to lay a foundation that would provide enough use for the introduced resources on one hand, and enough space for future expansion on the other. Currently the chain has two levels, shown vertically. The first level consists of the two production buildings, the Reaper’s Shed for harvesting grasses, and a Reed Farm to harvest reeds. Harvesting grasses produces ‘grass bales’, a raw material that can be processed by buildings of the second level. Harvesting reeds produces ‘reed bundles’, which can be either processed or used as a construction material directly. These will also be compatible with the reeds introduced in CC. The second level includes two processing buildings and another production building. The first processing building is the Thresher, where wild cereals and other edible plant parts are separated from the grass bales. It will produce ‘Wild Cereals’ and ‘Wild Salad’, both foods. The second building in this level is the familiar Thatcher, which produces ‘Thatch’ from grass bales or reeds. This thatch can then be used as a construction material for buildings with thatched roofs. The third and final building of the basic chain is the fish trap. It will require reeds to be built, and will be placeable on small rivers. As the name suggests, it produces fish. This offers a way to gather food with a building that does not require thatch, while also introducing a use for the small rivers on the map. That's it for this week! As always any feedback and suggestions are more than welcome ! To conclude, we would like to share some screenshots of the first two buildings; the Reaper’s Shed and the Thresher. Both buildings were made by the amazing @despo20!

    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 !

    A little update and a question: - I've realized the first accessory building: a small courtyard with a little vegetable garden. It works like a storage, the garden is just a decoration. - And here came the question! I set it as a generic storage with the five vanilla flags, but I would also include the new flags. What should I do? Simply add the flags at the code below, or are there more files to add/edit ? And what is the exact name of the flags to use to be compatible with CC? @Kralyerg, I need your help! Be patient with a newbie StorageDescription storage { RawMaterialFlags _storageFlags = Edible | Tool | Health | Clothing | Textile; bool _areaBasedLimit = false; bool _available = false; int _volumeLimit = 1000; } A pair of pictures of my new creation All my things together

    Banished Video Settings Quick Guide for Windows Please note that the document pasted in with a good attempt at the formatting, but missed! I will fix it later, please be patient. This short layman's guide provides a brief explanation of Banished's video settings. Some of these settings will have a large impact on how well Banished runs and some will help with "out of memory" crashes. I will approach each setting's explanation with these two particulars in mind. Our goal is to have Banished run as fast (and stable) as possible with little or no video degradation; a happy median. Even if your system seems to run fine with all the game's settings maxed out, I still recommend you review your choices as these can greatly impact other aspects of Banished, like modding and map size, for example. Before I get into the explanations, I have some general advise on keeping your game running as efficient as possible: 1. Make sure you are running the latest Banished retail version; see the first entry. 2. If you are experiencing crashes, report them to Shining Rock Software support (see the bottom of the linked page) after reading the FAQ to verify that your error is not already addressed. 3. Make sure your machine is in the best game-running shape that you can! This subject is much too broad to cover here, but there are many tweaking sites and free programs available to help. A few items to keep in mind are: · Make sure your hard drives are defragged on a regular bases. There are a lot of free defragging programs available (including the one packaged with Windows), but I use Puran because it allows the targeting of specific directories, boot time defrag, and more. · Keep the number of background tasks to a minimum. This is an expansive subject and I will not attempt to touch it here, but this is one of the main causes of poor performance on capable systems. Puran also offers free, a whole suit of utilities (some to help streamline the number of background tasks); please note, if you use the full suite, Puran Defrag does not need to be downloaded separately. Many people use CCleaner instead, which has been around a long time. 4. Beware of quick solutions, like editing your registry, unless you've fully researched the problem and solution and, you know what you are doing. 5. Remember, large maps can crash the game on any system, as stated on the official Shining Rock Software site: "...at some point very large maps will crash the game due to out of memory, or textures failing to be created." Banished Video Settings Graphic quality is subjective, there can be no doubt, but many of the standard graphic settings in today's games are unnecessary. For example, antialiasing was used on lower resolution screens to minimize pixelization (it softens pixel hard edges), but isn't necessarily needed on today's HiRes monitors. Turning off this setting alone can greatly improve performance, decrease resource demands, and help alleviate certain problems. Please be aware: · If you don't like the visual outcome of lowering a particular setting, feel free to change it back, but remember, there are consequences. Carefully weigh the visual gain against the benefits of performance, and in some cases, stability. · Hardware and or driver settings can (and usually do) affect your options and, in some cases, will override them. Hardware and or driver settings are beyond the scope of this guide. Renderer: The renderer option lets you set your DirectX version for the game to either DirectX 9.0c or DirectX 11. For the purpose of this guide, I'd recommend going with DirectX 9.0c. 9.0c requires fewer resources and is more stable, but it does not have all the features of version 11. With a game like Banished, the differences should be virtually unnoticeable. Adapter: The adapter option allows you to select which video card and or driver to use with Banished. Most computers will have only one video card, but may still offer two choices, one usually being generic. It's hard to point you to the correct option because this depends upon your hardware, but I can tell you what not to choose! Stay away from generic options, such as: Generic PnP Display, Standard VGA Graphics Adapter, etc. Generic choices typically utilize a built-in Windows VGA driver whereas most video card manufacturers will supply a much better choice. Two very popular gaming cards are ATI and Nvidia, but other valid option may be Intel, ASUS, and a few others. If your choices are still ambiguous, the best way to choose the proper adapter is to identify what you have, but even these steps can vary depending upon which Windows version you are running. You can try looking here, or Google "identify windows video card" and append your OS version (i.e. "identify windows video card windows 10"). Resolution: The resolution option has a very big impact on performance, but you should generally stick to your monitor's native resolution. If you choose anything but the native resolution, the pixels will not be one-to-one with the game's rendering, but approximate, which means your graphics will be blurry, especially text. Most newer, standard monitors are 1920x1080 (if you use an HDMI connection, it is 1920x1080). Generally, the native resolution will be the largest of your choices and at the top of the resolution list. If in doubt, Google your monitor's model number. As a last ditch effort, if your game's performance is still unsatisfactory, you can lower the resolution setting, but make sure this is the last thing you try. Quite frankly, if you have to resort to lowering this setting, it might be time to update your system! Refresh Rate: Refresh rate is the number of times the monitor is refreshed per second. In most cases, you'll stick to 60Hz, which is pretty standard nowadays. This setting generally does not affect performance (see VSync below), though some people claim they can see 60Hz refresh rates (if your monitor appears to strobe, you are one of these folks). If your eyes are this sensitive, you can increase the refresh rate if the option is available with your hardware. Personally, I could see strobing on the old CRT monitors at 60Hz, but never had this problem on modern LCD monitors. VSync: The Refresh Rate described above determines the number of times the monitor is refreshed per second, but in most cases, this does not correspond to the number of times Banished redraws its screen, which can vary significantly. When on, VSync assures that Banished does not redraw its screen while the monitor is in the middle of a refresh. If this happens, you may notice a "tearing" of your graphic screen (only part of the scene is redrawn resulting in a horizontal line somewhere on your screen, but only for a split second or, 1/60th of a second, to be precise). If VSync is on, your scenes should never "tear," but in most cases, you will never display more than 60 fps (frames per second). Unfortunately, turning VSync on can result in stuttering (skipping, dropping frames, etc.) if your system cannot keep up with the monitor's refresh rate. Without getting too technical, I suggest leaving VSync turned off (not selected) unless you notice a lot of "tearing." Fullscreen: I recommend running all games in full screen for a number of reasons, most importantly of which is performance. Most video cards are tweaked to run in full screen because they can write directly to the graphic system without going through a Windows' buffer. In window mode, all screen output is filtered through a Windows' buffer and will always result in a slowdown, though in some cases, the performance hit is negligible (on fast systems). Another reason is CPU resources, which are spread thinner when running programs windowed. Antialiasing: Pixels are aligned in a grid. With this technique, drawing a curve or diagonal line will result in jaggedness, or pixelization. Antialiasing is a method used to help diminish this jagged effect. But, as previously stated, today's HiRes monitors have very small pixels compared to their brethren of yesteryear, so antialiasing has become superfluous, in most cases. My recommendation is to set the option to None. If you are still unconvinced, change the setting and judge the difference for yourself. Just remember, with antialiasing on, at a minimum, the neighbors of over 2 million pixels (1920x1080) have to be examined, judged, then redrawn, ~30+ times per second. This, alone, is a huge resource drain, even with hardware optimization. Texture Filtering: You can think of texture filtering as antialiasing on steroids! I don't have the room to properly explain this here, so I will direct you to Wikipedia, if you want a better understanding. Just remember, texture filtering, in most cases, will have the largest impact on quality versus performance and, it also has the largest impact on the amount of video RAM used. In other words, if you are having bad performance and or crashes with Banished, you can lower this setting to help with both. Again, I cannot simply tell you which setting to choose, but I would start with the lowest (Bilinear) and work your way up (I use Bilinear on my laptop and am happy with the results). Keep in mind, texture filtering is not the only determining factor of graphic quality. Many times, a lower texture filtering setting can be compensated for by adjusting Banished's other settings. In other words, if the Bilinear setting doesn't look as good as you want, don't just choose a higher setting, try tweaking Banished's other settings first. Shadow Resolution: Shadows, in a game, can compensate for other graphic shortcomings, but at the expense of resources. Even so, from a purely visual point of view, I'd recommend keeping this setting as high as possible. If, after lowering other settings, you are still having performance problems, you can think of lowering shadow resolution or simply turning shadows off (see Shadow Quality below). Shadow Quality: Unlike Shadow Resolution, Shadow Quality can have a significant impact on graphic resources (performance and memory requirements). With this setting, I recommend you start with the lowest setting (excluding None) and work your way up, stopping on the lowest acceptable setting. I find Low does what I need. Reflections: Reflections can help compensate for graphic shortcomings, but can also significantly deplete available video resources. I consider reflections eye candy. But, if you can afford the overhead, I suggest you keep it set for Terrain, at a minimum. If you've lowered other setting and are still having trouble with performance and or crashing, you can simply turn reflections off. Quick Video Settings The following table is a summary of my recommended settings, depending on whether you are after performance or stability. If you are crashing, there is a good chance you are running out of resources, so my recommended settings are just a starting point (with trial and error, you should be able to minimize crashes, if low resources are indeed the cause). You will need to contact Shining Rock support once you narrow down the problem. See this guide's description for clarification of the recommendations below. Setting Performance Diagnosing Renderer DirectX 9.0c DirectX 9.0c Adapter Manufacturer Driver Manufacturer Driver Resolution Your Monitor's Native Resolution Your Monitor's Native Resolution Refresh Rate ~60Hz ~60Hz VSync Off Off Fullscreen On On Antialising None None Texture Filtering Lowest Acceptable Bilinear Shadow Resolution High Low Shadow Quality Low None Reflections Terrain None Quick Settings' Table If you find any problems (grammatical or technical) in this document, please let me know.

    Alternatively, there should be a link at the top of the page that says "Downloads". This page has the latest updates, with CC and MM at the top. I'm not sure when the next update of MM will be. With everyone updating the individual mods for 1.0.7 and the new community toolbar, it's going to take a bit of work to update MM. There has always been a desire amongst players for a CC Lite version. A version of CC without the crazy production chains. I've been thinking about it. In the next version of CC I'm going to attempt to rebuild things in a more orderly fashion behind the scenes. It won't affect game play much, but it will make things easier to work with under the hood. At the same time I'm doing that, it might just be possible to concurrently make a CC Lite without too much trouble. Maybe.

    That's funny, I was just thinking the same thing. I'm not sure how the game will register a doubly linked toolbar, if it will understand or if will somehow double the building, and double the filesize. But it's an option worth exploring.

    Hi, I'm Kedryn. I lived in Kansas until a week ago when my landlord evicted me 3 hours after my best friend and roommate of 23 years died (please, no condolences, they just make me more sad); now I live in Nebraska with my Mom. I don't normally overshare like this but I'm still angry and bewildered. I bought the game when it first came out and played it for many hours; I started playing again about a week before Chris died and now I'm trying to create the 'perfect little village' that he would have loved to live in. I like to tinker with other people mods for personal use (although this personal tinkering once led to me creating a bunch of 32bit tiles for a rogue-like game. It's a little harder to tinker with these mods because a lot of the things are inaccessible but I did manage to modify the bloom time for (Red)Ketchup's wonderful Garden Walls Utility:

    View File MegaMod Deco Pack Brought to you by the creators of Colonial Charter. Download: After clicking Download you will be redirected to google drive files and see this icon at the top right corner of a new page. Click it to download. About: Why is this a separate download? As I was building this version of MegaMod, I came across a little problem. Whenever I would compile a mod that was larger than 2GB, the game wouldn't load. I could load several mods that, combined, are more than 2GB, but it would never load a single pkm file that was larger than 2GB. It would give a memory allocation error during the game load every time. So, it needed to be split up somehow. The general idea behind MegaMod was to have it all combined, so this wasn't an easy decision. But until Luke can address this (which he may be working on already), a split version will have to suffice. What is in this mod? The entire MegaMod Decorations Toolbar is included in this mod. It is not in the mod titled MegaMod. To get everything, you need both of these MegaMod mods. Submitter Kralyerg Submitted 02/12/2017 Category MegaMod

    Hello from New Zealand, a bit of a lurker at the old CC site, knew about the new site from reading the post at World of Banished forums, didn't get any emails and it took two goes at resetting the password as still didn't get any emails ... here now New site is looking good, a vast improvement on the old site ... well done As for me was a very long-time simcity player, been a moderator over at SC4 Devotion, was a member of the RTMT Team (public transport Mod) mainly post at Simtropolis, spare time these days is either playing Banished or running my own website ... I host all the old official SC3/SC3K and SC4 plugins, plus a few other things. -catty-cb (Cathy)

    Nuevo Arbol remains one of my favorite starts. So many trees! This is an overview of my city, year 40, with about 600 people. Still TONS of trees make the farms and orchards and neighborhoods lovely. Such a happy country life.... Added more photos from my newest town (also nuevo arbol) year 25, about 350 people. Houses by despo20 (D20 Medieval Houses 1.0) and kid1293 (Tree House V3.1) and tiny traders also by kid1293 (included in megamod 0.07). Added a 'winter wonderland' shot - looks beautiful! edit: May 18, 2017 Oh the Arbol, I love it... I play it over and over. And my towns turn out lovely. happy healthy and green. The screenshots just keep coming! This time I put Kralyerg's cover on my domesticated animals and my tiny workers. It also looks great.

    I got bored of coding for updates and made a building. It will be a boat shop for the Sherbrooke Village set and will build various boat/fishing related things.

    So I been playing alot of mount and blade: Viking conquest lately, and I thought.. hey.. would it not be awesome if I could build my viking survivors in banished? viking style houses farms and decor items, simple Iron age stuff? The Viking conquest have alot of 3d models one could use as insperation, I am not a modder so I have no idea how much work it would be to just reskin houses and barns and stuff like this into a mod? obviously we have the Mega mod and I love it, but it can be very overwhelming, how about a small viking mod with like just a few farms, few animals, but more focus on hunt and fishing? last thing you build is a viking port at the rivier, once every year it comes back with treasure, gold or what not that can be used for trade.. I dont know, I just really like the viking look.

    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.

    Turns out according to a report put out by a group of geologists early this year I'm living on the eighth continent which is technically also known as a "drowned continent" which probably explains why New Zealand keeps being left off maps

    Perhaps the little pop-up blurb that describes what each building is (the one in the menu, before you build it) should give the modder's name.

    It's tuesday already, so we're starting to run a bit behind schedule.. here's Sneak Peek #5! This past week has been a week of a variety of things, and yet of nothing in particular. It was a week of bushes, boats, bridges, brainstorms about biofuels, and branches. There were other things, such as rocks, reeds and raw materials, but their names did not fit well into the last sentence. Other than arranging the words according to their first letter, we are afraid that there is not much of a theme to discover in this week’s sneak peek. In absence of such a common denominator, we will resort to simply showing you whatever is close enough to completion to be shared. The reed farm My honourable colleague @despo20 has spent most of this week working on the next part of the reeds and grasses chain; the as of yet unnamed reed farm. Due to limitations in the game code regarding the spawning of resources on the river banks, we spent a long time testing various possibilities for this building. In the end, we decided that the most realistic and historically accurate approach was to go for a boat on the small river, with a bridge connecting the two shores. The building functions similarly to a forester, planting and harvesting reeds in an influence area along the river banks. The associated profession will be a reaper, similarly to the reaper’s shed that gathers grasses. The gathered reeds can be processed by the thatcher or be used for the construction of fish traps. They will also be compatible with the reeds introduced in CC. Alternative Rocks A few weeks ago I have shown some images of rocks in the rivers. This week, we have worked to create suitable meshes and textures for these water rocks. In the process, we have decided to kill two birds with one stone (or two flies in one slap as we say in Dutch), and start an overhaul of the rocks on land as well. The state of diversity in the original rocks is rather appaling; there are only three meshes and they all have a bland, low-quality grey texture. To improve this, we have done several things; I have created (and am still creating) many different meshes, currently a total of 8, to allow for more diversity. Meanwhile, Despo has created several new rock textures with increasing amounts of moss/algal growth on them, for some colour variation. Lastly, a trick in the coding allows us to spawn each mesh at several different sizes, multiplying the number of variants we can create. The result of this is that with just these 8 meshes, we have managed to create 12 unique variants for the water rocks (flat meshes with heavy algal growth textures only), and 36 unique variants for the land rocks (all meshes, with low and medium moss growth textures), a selection of which is shown in the second screenshot. That concludes this week’s preview! We’ve been working on many other things in the past weeks, including the things we mentioned at the start of this post but didn’t show. We are not quite ready to share those, but they will be shown in subsequent sneak peeks!

    I've heard plenty a tale in the short time that I have been here. They spoke of His legendary deeds, and of His omniscience in the fine art of modding. At first I was an unbeliever, thought the stories were just myths from a time long gone. For I had not yet seen His true form. Now, I have found my faith. The Lord ShockPuppet be praised! I'm glad to hear that you have made a full recovery ShockPuppet , and spending time with a pet sounds like the best possible way to rehabilitate.
