    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 1.75: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1172726998 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!)

    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 ).

    Hello friends. I've just gotten over being a bit unwell so apologies for not being around the last week or 2. Those of you who were members on our old forums will remember we were developing a new game. It's still going ahead. Recently we added a dedicated programmer to our team, who basically pointed out that there's a much better way to do things than we had been developing. Well, I mean to say we teamed up our teams together. Yes I think that's more accurate lol. So, from learning unity engine we have now shifted to using unreal engine as a base. We have a lot of ideas for code and a rather large feature list but essentially we want to make something awesome. Initially I can share that we are extremely interested in optional multiplayer Co op. We will have animated buildings. We aim to allow modding to be very modular and we want to encourage it long term. By that I mean we hope this is an ongoing project for many years that can keep growing and being interesting. Other than this, I don't have much to share right now. Oh, im designing a full new set of 3d content customised to the new game. This will be done with a passion that I never put into CC, not because I didn't want to, but because cc has always been a hobby and not something we fully own, relying so much on Banished... So that's it for now. In the future we'll be looking for suggestions and such but for now we have colonial charter modular version to do and I have some new ideas for some themed sets

    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. Oh, and a little changelog: Changelog 0.07 Added Smuggler's Cave v1.0 by RedKetchup Added Plymouth House v1.0 by RedKetchup Added Christmas Mod v1.0 by Kid & Discrepancy (this mod includes Christmas Tree by Discrepancy) Added Styth Tower v2.1 by Discrepancy Added Red Looking Creamery v1.1 by RedKetchup Added Washing Mod v1.0 by Kid Added Vegetable Garden v1.0 by Kid Added Mexican Fantasy v1.0 by Kid Added Decorative Crates v1.0 by Kid Added Gift Shop v1.0 by Kid Added Violet Crop 1.0 by Idle Work Team Added Camellia Crop 1.0 by Idle Work Team Added Jatropha Integerrima Crop 1.0 by Idle Work Team Added Rose Crop 1.0 by Idle Work Team Added Wood Butcher v1.0 by RedKetchup Added Wild Bees 1.0 by tanypredator Added iSeeFire 1.0 by RedKetchup Added Storage Crates 1.0 by Kid Added Small Port 1.0 by Kid Added Large Port 1.0 by Kid Added Plimoth Plantation 1.0 by Kid Added Mother Tree 1.0 by Kid Added Decoration Wreaths 1.0 by Kid Added Decorative Plants v4.1 by Kid Added Narrow Row Houses 1.0 by AzemOcram Added Firewood Storage v1.0 by RedKetchup Added Water And Other Decorations v1 by tanypredator Added Training Camp v1.0 by RedKetchup Added Wood Butcher v1.0 by RedKetchup Added Work Place v1.0 by Kid Added Creepy Cemetery v1.0 by RedKetchup Updated DS Tunnel Mine to v2.1 Updated Exotic Plants to v2 Updated Tiny to v1.1 Updated DS Small Village to "pre_v2_beta11" Updated Colonial Houses to v5.3 Updated MarketBBQ to v3.1 Updated MarketSoup to v1.1 Updated Choo Choo to v2.0

    Requires Banished 1.0.7 Did you upgrade Banished to 1.0.7 and upgrade CC to 1.72 but still want to use MegaMod? Well this is your lucky day. This little mod should allow you to use MegaMod 0.07 with CC 1.72 and Banished 1.0.7. (I say should, because this is extremely untested. ) It will let the items with new flags be processed at the old production buildings that would otherwise have issues with them. It does not change the little limit spinners on each of the buildings, and this little mod never will. There's may still be some weird incompatibilities between CC and MM, but hopefully this should smooth a few of them out. Load this above CC and MM. And load CC above MM. Like so: 1.0.7 Compatibility CC 1.72 MM 0.07 MM 0.07 Deco Pack Let me know how buggy it is, because again, it's extremely untested. Thanks estherhb for doing the boring parts while I was at work so I could get this done faster. And if you complain that it turns everything red, I may just slap you.

    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.

    Colonial Charter 1.75 is available for download. Rearrage Refined Production toolbar to better reflect the new resource flags and limits. Fix general markets that should not be storing Luxuries Allow Trading Posts to set autopurchase for new resource flags Add new subtoolbars for Market Stalls, Market Carts, Specialized Storage Barns No real big changes. Just some minor updates. Unless there's some big bugs that are found, this should be the last update to the 1.7x line.

    CC 1.74 is now available for download. Little Changelog: Fix Edibles Market storage bug Fix Precious Mine limit bug Added Market Carts for Construction, Minerals, Raw Materials, Industrial Fuel Added Market Stalls for Crafted, Forged, Fabrics, Misc, Precious Added Storage Cellars for all new Limits Added Materials Warehouse for Construction, Minerals, Raw Materials, Industrial Fuel Added Small Barn specialized storage for Crafted, Forged, Fabrics, Misc, Precious Fix Stable to use Misc Limit Fix Wild Shepherd to use Misc Limit Allow Clear Tree to remove Hardwood Trees Just so everything is clear, because there's bound to be questions: There should be a Storage Cellar for every limit. Luxuries, Clothing, Construction, Crafted, Fabrics, Food, Forged, Fuel, Health, Industrial Fuel, Minerals, Misc, Precious, Textiles, Raw Materials, Tools. There should be some kind of market for all the limits. Generally, if it normally goes in a stockpile, it should now have a Market Cart. If it normally goes in a barn, it should have a Market Stall. There should be a specialized storage for the new flags. Crafted, Fabrics, Forged, Misc, Precious. These all use the Small Barn model. Eventually, these will probably be changed, but I thought it was best to have *something* rather than wait to make new models for each one. There should be special warehouses for the flags: Construction, Industrial Fuel, Minerals, Raw Materials, in addition to the Iron, Fuel, Stone, Wood ones that are already there. These new flag warehouses use copies of the models of the existing ones. The bigger warehouse, which was called the "Materials Warehouse" is now called the "General Warehouse" and is flagged for all 8 of these flags (everything that normally gets stockpiles)

    Version 105

    599 downloads

    Updated to Version 105 - September 28th 2017 The Maritimes Collection - The Pine Set V105 Preamble I started making this set because I had a need for certain forestry resources, so wanted to make the forest centers to get them. I also wanted to add a bit more maritimes diversity to what can be gained from the forest. Rather quickly, this snowballed into a large set as with the more buildings and chains I added, I figured I had may as well do other things too so that it is more complete. This set took a lot of time an effort, far too much perhaps. There are chains and buildings that I really like, and others which on hindsight could do with being improved. It also diverted away from other Maritimes sets, in that there was no real inspiration from Maritimes areas to make most of this set. I have learnt a lot, the limits of the mod kit, my limits as a modder, and have developed some interesting techniques and mechanisms, some that work, some that don't so much. With that being said, this is the last update I will be making to the Pine Set, apart from any necessary bug fixes or balancing changes. I will continue supporting it in terms of making sure it is still compatible with other sets, but any improvements to chains will come as seperate stand alones, back in more of the Maritimes theme I've been trying to create. 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 Issues I have tried to make this set fully compatible with all other mods. There are, however, a couple of points that I just could not solve. They are listed below... Charcoal and Colonial Charter Part 1 = This is an interesting one. Due to CC charcoal being linked to the brick making facilities, the high:low produce values are astronomical, from a comparitively tiny amount of logs. Therefore, if you use the Pine Set above CC, the output of charcoal from CC buildings will most likely be very low. It, on the other hand, you use CC above the Pine Set, the output of charcoal from Pine Set buildings will be very high. You have been warned Charcoal and Colonial Charter Part 2 = Another difference is that in CC, charcoal is a fuel, where as in the Maritimes, charcoal is an industrial fuel as I don't want it used in houses. So if you want charcoal to be burned in your houses, put CC above the Pine Set. Otherwise, it doesn't matter. New Flora = In order to use both New Flora and the Pine Set, you need to use the Flax Patch and New Pine Flora patch. Put these two, and New Flora, above the Pine Set in your load order. 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!

    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. Right now there's only a few things, but more will come.

    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

    Have you ever wondered why all the crops are harvested in little baskets, but then the meat is left just laying on the ground waiting for someone to come pick it up? I know at least one of you has. So this will make it so, instead of meat laying on the ground, the meat is left in little baskets, just like your crops. Yum. Here's a hunter that just killed a Deer. Baskets of meat, yay. List of meats that are affected by this mod: Beef Chicken Mutton Venison Bison Meat Charki Cheval Duck Meat Pork Beef Cuts Bison Cuts Charki Cuts Cheval Cuts Pork Cuts Venison Cuts Bear Meat Bear Steak Bison Steak Boar Meat Boar Ribs Goose Meat Hare Meat Hare Stew Partridge Meat Pheasant Meat Roast Duck Roast Goose Roast Partridge Roast Pheasant Cured Meat Dried Meat Smoked Meat Salted Meat Lamp Chop Roast Steak

    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.)

    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.

    Here is an unpainted terrain island generated exclusively from code. It represents a size of up to 20 kilometers x 20 kilometers (our game is being created in a 3d scale of 1:1 with real life). It generates very quickly and is high performance, showing the cap of 120fps. This is not the standard unreal engine terrain system, we are not using that. We use C++ code to manipulate polygons into a terrain 3d mesh that will give us control of terraforming tools in game, such as flatten.

    Its been a while, I am sorry for that. Real life is a heck of a thing. So after some time away being busy with work and other things, the team (and a few new people who arent on the forums) has started further development of a new game which doesnt yet have an active title. Using Latest Unreal Engine, we are establishing a terrain generation system (procedural), and working on the save system. Theres also been some discussion around oceans, which will be very important. Theres not very much at all to show, as theres an incredible amount of engine work going on that isn't visual (code). Actually, as ive just returned i was asked to make a house building for testing some parts of the engine (Night time indoor lights and some other things). So i'll share that building with you now: You can expect more updates from me in this thread over time. Thanks for stopping by

    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:

    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 !

    He sure is! Meanwhile it's time for another sneak peek! Probably one of the last ones before beta release, as I am finishing up the last bits and pieces before I can deliver a well polished first version. I still have many things on my list that I want to add or improve, but I have to draw a line for myself somewhere . If not I would well be capable of working to infinity and beyond, without ever releasing anything because I never quite feel that it's finished. Anyway, on to the content! The first thing I have plunged myself into this week is designing a building for the Thatcher. After several failed attemps, my conclusion is that buildings are hard. For the moment I have chosen to use the apiary example as a template, and adapt it to my wishes. This is going ok for now, but it's not in a showable state yet. What I can show are the final two resource overhauls (for now). The first is Oniovation, consisting of two onion colour variants. The second is the Root of All-ternation (another reason why I should finish up; I'm running out of puns). This one consists of a turnip, two carrot variants and three radish variants. The radishes will be annual roots, while the carrots and turnip are perennial.

    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.

No time to do a "proper" journal - so here a little collection of things I played with in recent days, many centered on water... I tried to peel out most of my personal highlights, but I'm quite sure I missed some - such is the nature of beta-play... Enjoy!

    Updated to Version 102 - 8th May 2017. The Maritimes Collection - Crystal Cliffs Farm version 102 Inspired by an 1800s farm down the road from where I live called Crystal Cliffs, Antigonish County, Nova Scotia. The name comes from the gypsum that makes up the cliffs, which erodes out and covers the beach in 'crystals'. Introducing Crystal Cliffs Farms. The main pieces of this set is a large, 11000 capacity general storage barn. It comes in 3 F-variants, red, white, and gray. The barn overhangs, so that it can be placed above either of the following two buildings that will make the stone foundation. Crystal Milk Pen. A large milk pen, capable of employing up to 3 farmers. Needs domesticated animals to build and corn to feed the cows. Produces milk at a decent rate. Acts as a stand alone building or as the foundation for the Crystal Barn. Crystal Stable. A large stable, capable of employing up to 3 farmers. Produces domesticated animals from various grains (corn, barley, wheat, oats). Acts as a stand alone building or as the foundation for the Crystal Barn. Small Animal Hutch. A small back yard (1x1) animal hutch. A drop down menu allows you to select from either Eggs (chickens) or Pelts (rabbits). Needs domesticated animals to build and corn to feed the animals. Comes in 3 F-variants, yellow, red, and brown. Small Animal Pen. A small back yard (2x2) animal pen. A drop down menu allows you to select from either Milk (goats) or wool (sheep). Needs domesticated animals to build and corn to feed the animals. Comes in 2 F-variants, blue and brown. A decorative goat! Ghosted, 2 F-variants, straight and diagonal. 3 sets of Decorative Fences. Ghosted, red, brown, and white. Each colour has its own sub-menu and includes a 1x1, 1x2, 1x3 straight pieces, a diagonal piece, a style, a small gate, a 1x1 farm gate, and a 1x2 farm gate. New materials (to the vanilla game) including feathers, lumber** and domesticated animal. New foods (to the vanilla game) including milk, goat's milk, eggs, barley**, and oats**. Resources marked ** are trade only unless used with another mod that introduces ways to produce 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 toolbar, you will see the Maple Leave icon - this is my little corner of Banished... Welcome! And Enjoy your stay!

    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).

    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.

    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

    I've noticed two new series are out using Colonial Charter 1.7 - Journey. Biffa is using both CC 1.7 and Megamod. Go HERE. Vaypah is featuring the new CC 1.7 Shipwrecked Start. Go HERE. Both are very experienced Banished/Colonial Charter players. Enjoy!

    I was working on trying to make a nice looking native village to go near my colony, so I made a small test. I really like how it looked in winter so I took a screenshot. Also got one in spring for good measure.
