  1. This. Unless the game specifically drops you back on desktop with an error message, it hasn't actually crashed, it's just working hard on loading the mod. It can take a pretty long time on older computers. It takes a couple of minutes on my desktop, and 3 on my laptop now that it has 8GB of RAM. It used to take longer before that. It's perfectly fine to alt-tab and do other stuff while it's loading. You can catch up on your emails or the latest gossip or simply go grab a snack and a drink to enjoy with your Banishing.
  2. I'm afraid I've never really had issues with any kind of "blurring". I'm no certain it looks as sharp when I touch the UI scale, but it's not really a noticeable issue on my system. :-/
  3. Are you using the same resolution in Banished as your system's global resolution? It seems to get blurrier if you're using different ones.
  4. Buildings like mines reduce happiness, so it's possible that people working there drop a star while at work. You can try building wells around the quarries/mines/heavy industry types of buildings. It might keep people from getting unhappy at work and allow you to reach that global 5 star. It's also entirely possible that you have that one grumpy person in your town whose (buggy) happiness never updates and stays stuck on 1 or 2 stars, whatever you do. In that case you'll have to wait for him/her to die.
  5. Have you tried switching back to DirectX9? Keep CTRL pressed while starting the game to bring up the options first, and switch from DirectX11 to 9 and see if that helps.
  6. Well, you just listed your error right there: Your Banished version is 1.0.7, and your CC version (1.5.5) was made for Banished 1.0.4. The pretty large changes in the game and modkit between 1.0.4 and 1.0.7 make a lot of the old mods crash. Even if they don't crash on start, you'd run into issues with how items are flagged and which buildings accept which kinds of items in their storage. The current version of Banished is 1.76 and is here. Depending on your computer, you might also want to go and manually launch the Application-x64.exe instead of the default "application" or the automatically-created shortcut.
  7. You just need to make sure they are in the right 1-2-3 order.
  8. The tutorial only works with the vanilla version of the buildings it asks you to use. So yeah, mods make it crash or fail when the game doesn't recognize you've indeed built what it told you to.
  9. The Steam community for Banished is generally pretty damn sweet too. There's a few people who show up now and then with a dose of that "I'm gonna ask question in an aggressive tone or insult the game" thing common on Steam, but they are rare and it usually doesn't last.
  10. Blinkiiiiin! Long time no see. I missed you by just a couple of minutes yesterday oin Discord
  11. Ooooh, fancy complicated screen
  12. *blinks* I don't remember a G-Synch option o_o
  13. V-Sync causes some odd issues in some games. It's something that I personally turn off by default and will only switch on if I see odd artefacts on the screen while playing.
  14. The browser version works very well. I am personally a tad allergic to the app, but have no problem leaving it open in the background in Firefox.
