    Colonial Charter 1.75 will only work with the Banished 1.0.7 update. 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 for version 1.71: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=849019386 Steam uploads are disabled while the game is in Beta status. A workshop version will be uploaded as soon as we're allowed. 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! Special Thanks in no particular order to the following people: Estherhb, Mystitsu, Paeng, Vrayna, Denis de la Rive, Mizana, RedKetchup, Discrepancy, OwlChemist, kica, Rageingnonsense, Delver, MrFlopsie, Maal, The Pilgrim, Necora, AzemOcram (any names missed, not on purpose!)

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: Have you ever wished you could download all of the most popular Banished mods compiled into one comprehensive package? Welcome to the mother of all Banished mods. The MegaMod - the ultimate Banished mod experience. 95 mods and counting. Thanks to the hard work of all the modders who have contributed. RedKetchup, Kid, Discrepancy, embx61, tanypredator, TomSawyer, Wintin, Maal, Elfecutioner. This is a completely standalone mod. All of the listed mods are completely included. Do not use any of the included mods alongside MegaMod. You're welcome to use your choice of Aging mods, Storage mods, Resource quantity mods, or other mods of these types, as they are not included. There is no guarantee that future versions will be save game compatible with this beta version. Things happen. Toolbar entries are color coded by which modder made them. Toolbar buttons with a colored border will open another toolbar. The color of the border indicated which modder made all of the entries inside that toolbar. There will be periodic updates to this, as mods are updated, and work is done to continue to make them all cohesive. It's going to take a long time to load a mod this large. Be prepared for a black screen for several minutes while it loads. Submitter Kralyerg Submitted 11/26/2016 Category MegaMod

    The MegaMod v0.07 is available here: http://blackliquidsoftware.com/index.php?/files/file/72-megamod/ The MegaMod Deco Pack for v0.07 is available here: http://blackliquidsoftware.com/index.php?/files/file/160-megamod-deco-pack/ To get *everything* you need both. But each file will run perfectly fine on it's own. (Although in the Deco Pack alone you may not have some of the buildings required to produce required resources.) These downloads are .RAR files. You will need a program like 7zip or WinRar to open them. Don't put the .RAR file into your WinData folder. You need to extract the .PKM and put it in WinData. Why is there 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 the second 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.

    Version 1.0.1

    Alternative download link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-ZePVZCUPiuamo5S2JnSHpyamM Aim of the mod Natural Diversity is my attempt to make the world of banished resemble real nature more closely. I try to achieve this by increasing the realism of existing elements of the game, and by introducing new elements that I feel are lacking. Version 1.0 of this mod is only the start, and improves some aspects of the game’s natural environment. My plan is to continue development, and cover the other parts in future updates. Usage details This mod requires the 1.0.7 Beta version of the game. When copying this mod into the banished folder, it will replace the Natural Diversity Beta mod if you had it installed. This is intended, do not change the filenames as this will cause the mod to crash. This mod will require a new game in order to fully function. Load this mod above any other mods that alter the default start conditions or introduce new ones, such as CC. If you wish to use this mod together with mods that add resources that get spawned in the forest, such as Necora’s PineSet, this mod must be loaded below the other mod. Content Meadows The most impactful aspect of this mod is the introduction of a new biome in addition to the forest that is already present: the meadow. Meadows will spawn naturally in the world from the start of the game (note: only when using the default ‘easy’, ‘medium’ or ‘hard’ start conditions). They mainly consist of ‘grass’, which gives ‘thatch’ as a material when harvested by the citizens. A ‘Collect Grass’ option is added to the menu for this. Thatch is needed to construct buildings with thatched roofs, such as the ‘Storage Barn’ or ‘Wooden House’, and can be used as a fuel by the citizens to warm their houses. Furthermore, the meadows will spawn herbs, roots and onions. The latter two no longer spawn in the forest, as this is not their natural habitat. Thatcher’s Shed and Thatcher profession To be able to let citizens harvest and replant grasses automatically, the ‘Thatcher’s Shed’ is added to the game. It employs a maximum of two ‘Thatchers’, and has a work radius of 20. Seasonality for natural resources In unmodded Banished, all natural resources are treated as if they would not be affected by low temperatures, while in reality some of them would. With this mod, all Mushrooms, half the Herbs and half the Roots will die as soon as the temperature drops below 0 C (32F). Though the other resources will not die, their appearance will change according to the season. In Spring, herbs and onions will grow flowers. In Autumn, their flowers will wilt again. 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. Their behaviour is as follows: Herbs will grow naturally in the forest or in the meadows. The annual herbs die if the temperature drops below 0 C (32F), the others only lose their flowers or decolour in Autumn. Onions will grow in the meadows, and lose their flowers in autumn. Roots will grow in the meadows, and the annual ones will die if the temperature drops below 0 C. Mushrooms will grow naturally in the forest, and die if the temperature drops below 0 C. Future plans As mentioned before I intend to continue development on this mod, reworking other aspects of banished’s natural world and introducing more variety. Below is a list of features that I intend to include in future updates. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please share them with me! Reeds (growing on the water’s edge) More berry bushes, including an update to the blueberry Twigs and branches in the forest (for firewood) Updates to rocks and ores Extended production chain for thatch, to add more uses. Information for Modders Anyone who wishes to make mods that work together with Natural Diversity, for example to make use of the Thatch resource for buildings, is most welcome to do so. Below is a list of relevant filenames that are added in this mod, so that they can be referenced. In case you have questions about any specifics of this mod, feel free to contact me. Grass: Template/NaturalResourceNatDivGrass.rsc Annual Herbs: Template/NaturalResourceNatDivHerbAnn.rsc Meadow Herbs: Template/NaturalResourceNatDivHerbGrass.rsc Annual Roots: Template/NaturalResourceNatDivRootAnn.rsc Thatch: Template/RawMaterialNatDivThatch.rsc Acknowledgements 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. Not only are they highly skilled modders, they are also kind and patient enough to share their sometimes hard-earned knowledge with beginners like me.

    Caution! This is a pre-update BETA. Use at your own risk Updated to Version 104 BETA - 22nd May 2017 The Maritimes Collection - The Pine Set V104 BETA I needed woodland production chains for future fisheries/boat building things, one thing lead to another, and this set happened! This is a big set, and I am bound to have made mistakes, so treat this initial version as a trial/public beta. Introducing the biggest (so far) installment of the Maritimes collection, the Pine Set. Small prodution buildings including blacksmiths, tailors, looms, spinners, and lumber cutters. All small, all slow, all with 2 F-variants, one colour and one wood. New forestry production chains including a turpentine still and a pine pitch kiln. New storage options including some small food cellars, barns, and material storage. New forestry lots. 3 1x1 forester towers, one vanilla, one with a new maple tree set consisting of maple trees, aspens, apples, and oaks, and one with a new pine tree set, including fir, spruce, and white pine. New gatherer and forager resources... see the read me in the first reply to this topic below for more details. New fur trapper and skinner... see the read me in the first reply to this topic below for more details. New foods (to vanilla game) including Game (meat), eggs, cranberries, maple syrup, and more. New alcohol (to vanilla game) including cider and maple whiskey. New materials (to the vanilla game) including feathers, lumber, hemp, flax, pine boughs, pine resin, turpentine, pitch, charcoal, and more! New fabrics (to the vanilla game) including linen, canvas, yarn, and twine. New civic buildings including church, school, town hall (all with F-variants) and a hospital. New housing including an up-gradable cabin in wood and colour versions, and an up-gradable lodge. More housing will be added in the future. And probably a load of other things I forgot about! When I remember, I'll add them. Compiled using Banished Mod Kit 107 Beta including the new resource flags and limits. Compiled using the new Community Mod Tool Bar. Toolbar. A new toolbar icon will appear on your main toolbar. This is a community tool bar space within which future releases from all modders can have their own menu. Within this new toolbar, you will see the Maple Leaf icon - this is my little corner of Banished... Welcome! And Enjoy your stay! Note, all Maritimes modular sets will be able to be used completely independently of each other, you don't need one to run the others (although, in some cases it will be beneficial ). It would probably be safe to run the most recently released mod above the rest. Compatibility. Other Modular Maritimes Mods - Compatible! New Flora - Compatible with the following patches! In order to get both New Flora and Pine Set resources on the map, you need to download the New Pine Flora patch. In order for flax to be compatible between the two mods, you need to download the Flax Patch. Colonial Charter Journey - Compatible but with a warning! The pine set is compatible with CC 1.75J, however there is an issue to look out for. The charcoal chains are coded differently, resulting in quite a large difference in high:low create values for charcoal. At the moment, I can't think of a good way to fix this, so until I do you must take note: If using CC above the Pine Set, the CC charburner and bricks works will run as expected, however the Pine Pitch Kiln will be WAAAAAAY overpowered when producing charcoal (like, crazy overpowered). If using the Pine Set above CC, then the Pitch Kiln will run fine but the CC charburner and bricks works will be incredible weak when producing charcoal. All other productions from these buildings (bricks, pine pitch) will not be impacted. Maritimes.pkm - Incompatible! This set should not be used along side the full Maritimes mod, which has now been discontinued. Modular Maritimes Sets - Compatible! You will get red warnings in your mod list - ignore them. This set does not need the Maritimes Tree mod as it is included. All other mods - Compatible! I don't know of any instances where this will not work. Acknowledgements None of my mods would be possible without the help, support, and general amazing nature of the Black Liquid Crew. This includes especially @ShockPuppet for modeling help and @Kralyerg for super coding magic. Thanks also go to @Discrepancy for his awesome intro to modding tutorial, and @Ketchup for modeling and coding help throughout, and of course the toolbar! Thanks also go out to all who have participated in the development thread with comments, suggestions, and beta testing. There are too many to name individually, and I'm worried about missing people out. So here's to you! Alternative download for Pine Set V104 BETA

    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.

    Have you ever wanted to use just a single aspect of Colonial Charter alongside your other mods, without the enormity of other options that comes with it? Soon, this may become a reality. If you head over to the Downloads area, there's a new section called "Colonial Charter Modular". This will house the different pieces of CC that are created as standalone mods. Anything in this area is already included in the full CC mod, so you should not try and use them both. Right now there's only a few things, but more will come.

    As was said in another thread, I don't know when MegaMod will be updated for Banished 1.0.7. It may be a little while. But I did make a small compatibility patch mod. 1.0.7 Compatiblity for MegaMod 0.07 It should allow you to use MM and the new CC with 1.0.7. It's very very beta. It shouldn't crash anything, but things might not work as expected. Let me know when you find the bugs.

    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.

    The Maritimes Collection - Maritimes Trees Addon Introducing the Maritimes Trees Replacement Addon. This pack replaces the vanilla trees with new trees from the Maritimes Collection. Includes Apple, Aspen, Birch, Fir, Maple, Spruce, and White Pine. All have a few variants. How it works. This mod changes the 'NaturalResourceTree.rsc:model' to swap the vanilla tree models for the new Maritimes tree models and their variants. It also increases the amount of wood produced as a little added bonus - These trees are bigger than the vanilla ones, so it's only fair. This mod does not change the spawning of other natural resources, nor does it add any new resources. Compatibility. As this mod is a simple tree replacement, the only aspect of the NaturalResourceTree.rsc template file that it over writes is the 'model' section. This means that if you run it on top of other mods, it should over write that part of the file, but not touch the rest. So any mods that change the wild spawned resources associated with the NaturalResourceTree.rsc, such as the Wild Flax Mod, should still work. It should also work with any mods that change the appearance of or add variations to the gatherer/forester/herbalist buildings such as the Forest Outpost Mod. This mod will not work with any mods that change the vanilla trees, or link a new tree file in the starting conditions. It should not cause any crashes, but either this will over ride the trees added to the vanilla file, or not show up on the map if the other mod links to a new tree file (some CC starting conditions may work like this). Acknowledgements None of my mods would be possible without the help, support, and general amazing nature of the Black Liquid Crew. This includes especially @ShockPuppet for modeling help and @Kralyerg for super coding magic. Thanks also go to @Discrepancy for his awesome intro to modding tutorial, and @Ketchup for modeling and coding help throughout, and of course the toolbar! Thanks also go out to all who have participated in the development thread with comments, suggestions, and beta testing. There are too many to name individually, and I'm worried about missing people out. So here's to you!

    Welcome to life on the water! This is one of CC’s most popular features. Included is everything needed to expand your town along shores and across lakes. Also included are two watery terrains: 'Lake Waters' with multiple lakes and the more challenging 'Waterworld' which is one large lake. The first in a (hopefully) series of themed modpacks from Colonial Charter. And now using the new "Community Mod Toolbar" to centrally locate modded items.

    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.

    Here is a standalone compilation of all of the Roads and Bridges from Colonial Charter. Because this is standalone from Colonial Charter, you don't have any way to make Bricks or Lumber, which some of these would normally use. So I slightly modified them to use Stone and Logs instead. So you need Stone to build a Brick Bridge.

    On a completely different topic, just in case there is any confusion - Governor is not her name, it's her rank in this forum. Her name is estherhb. In regards to the hunting blinds, if they are causing a problem for you then the short-term solution is to ignore them and not build them. Unfortunately Shock and Kralyerg are both away from the site at the moment due to real life issues so they are not going to be able to answer your questions at the moment. Probably the best long-term solution for you would be if someone made a separate mod that alters the the hunting blind. That way you could instal it to affect your production but those of us, like me, who rarely see such high numbers, can choose not to instal it.

    Version 100 - 8th May 2017 I don't have any pictures yet... they will be coming soon! The Maritimes Collection - Maritimes Riffle V100 A collection of ghost, free to place decorative pieces to build streams, ponds, and lakes on land and to enhance game waterways. Introducing the Maritimes Riffle Collection - Version 100! This collection provides a range of decorative items, which are all free to place and ghosted. All of these decorations can be used to create streams, rivers, lakes, ponds etc. on land and to enhance the water ways in game. This set includes... Stream Riffles - decorative pieces that enhance game rivers and streams Steam - this will make a particle point that produces steam from the water, using a modified smoke particle. Ripple - this will make a particle point that produces a ripple effect on the water, using a modified boat wake particle. Warning - due to the nature of these pieces, they are invisible! So some trial and error will be needed to place them properly. Unfortunately, I've not found a way to incorporate placement helpers. Once placed, if you click on the middle of the point (where the particle is emitting from) you will find an invisible square so you can delete it from the UI that pops up. 4 Turbulent textures, each with 3 angled variants. These are simple textures which have the foliage material applied, making them move in the water. This will allow you to place turbulence along shore lines, dock buildings etc. Stream Decorations - 4 sets of stream decorations are included, to build streams, ponds, lakes etc. on land. Each set is at a different level, so 0m (ground level), -0.25m, -0.50m, and -0.75m. Each includes... A center water tile. A corner water tile. An edge water tile. A diagonal water tile. Pebbles (3 variants). Drift wood (lots of variants). Transition Pieces - these allow you to transition between the various depths mentioned above. Sloped transitions - a gradual slope between each step. Waterfall transitions - a waterfall between 0m and each lower level. Digging Pieces - a terrain leveler for 0m, -0.25m, -0.50m, and -0.75m. Must be placed then deleted. All decorative items are ghost and free to build! Toolbar. A new toolbar icon will appear on your main toolbar. This is a community tool bar space within which future releases from all modders can have their own menu. Within this new toolbar, you will see the Maple Leaf icon - this is my little corner of Banished... Welcome! And Enjoy your stay! There is a decorations tab (a goat with a fence) where you will find a maritimes riffle tab. Within this sub menu, there is a tab for each of the sets above. Note, all Maritimes modular sets will be able to be used completely independently of each other, you don't need one to run the others (although, in some cases it will be beneficial ). It would probably be safe to run the most recently released mod above the rest. Compatibility. This mod does not change or add any core files, and therefore should be compatible with all other mods. Use only with Banished v107 BETA. Acknowledgements None of my mods would be possible without the help, support, and general amazing nature of the Black Liquid Crew. This includes especially @ShockPuppet for modeling help and @Kralyerg for super coding magic. Thanks also go to @Discrepancy for his awesome intro to modding tutorial, and @Ketchup for modeling and coding help throughout, and of course the toolbar!

    @SamuraiWindu I am not a modder, I am not a coder, I am a very happy gamer, and that's where my thoughts will come from, and the tone I hope to convey in the following. Simply put - no. Sorry, but I can't see any of the above working, or being at all healthy for the game, or the community. I for one don't want to play in a cookie-cutter world, nor, do I want to play in a world where it becomes 'by the numbers', with balancing etc. Many of us gamers play at different levels of intensity, some of like to build and explore, others like to starve and fight, fight, fight in the harsh hard elements, so, balance won't be suitable in this regard, or, at least a 'standardise balance', some of us pick and choose our buildings and game design because some are easier to access and build, some choose them because of their harder, less forgiving outputs. There is often a conversation when a mod is published by the original author as to the 'numbers', the balance, the work flow, and many voices speak and are heard, and then the mod gets published. Some players are happy, some are not, some of us will get over it and adapt. Not to mention, in some cases different mods with different criteria will work with different maps. Some maps won't have as much access to X resource, so not all buildings will be able to be built until a trader arrives, but, in other maps there will be an abundance of items. The whole point of MM (in my mind) is to bring together an amazing amount of mods by extremely talented modders, to work with each other, but not to be 'the same as each other'. Here's the thing, I also don't want to be forced into using 1 set of building tools, I want to explore other building options, tiles, bricks, lighting, candles etc. I don't want to load up my map and just always have to build the 'same ole same ole'. Sure, for some, it makes the game easier, you don't need to build 4 windmills before you find the one you need for the grain you have, but, then, where's the fun of exploration? I use 1 mod that alters all the tailors so that all the tailors will use the same items (feathers & reeds in my water worlds), but, I certainly don't want ALL the building mods to have that "same same" value to it. And as much as I love CC and certainly won't criticise it, why should all the modders work to the CC values, or the CC devs work to the other modders? A community should be diverse, and celebrated, and that's what MM does, and as players we either learn to adapt to the differences, or, simply, just don't use it.

Shot attached here is for Alonzalo who was killed at work as a glassmaker.

    If you are having large die-offs, it's because you are building too many houses at one time. That results in a bunch of kids being born at one time, then a spike in kids going to school, then a bunch of graduates needing houses again. Try building just 3 or so houses a year - or at least just a few each season. If you are accepting Nomads, leave them in the Boarding House as you add just a few houses at a time. When you see a bunch of old people are getting up there in age, stop building more houses since you know some will soon be available. All those old people are still productive workers. More kids isn't the only thing a town needs.

    From what I can gather from trying to edit this part of the UI... not likely. For DSSV I tried to make the Terrain Type drop-down prompt a text tip like the Starting Conditions do, but the code that makes this happen does not seem to be visible to us. ... unless we can set a sprite image... needs further investigation. But a possible option, that can be done is to display a small banner with all the pictures of the different Terrains/ground textures.

    As far as I'm aware, there's no way to add any kind of new statistics into the game. The "best" that you can get is the number of families and homes from the Townhall, and I'm pretty sure you can't isolate those 2 numbers, you must have that whole first tab of statistics as a whole. So it is possible to add that "general stats" to the immigration office" on top of the "allow nomads yes/no" page, but that's about it.
