  1. Hello there! New members please take a moment to introduce yourself. If you're an existing member perhaps you can spare a moment to give us an update I live in Australia with my pet doggo Stevie. I enjoy city building and base building games. I also enjoy turn based strategy of all kinds.
  2. Many Decorative Items cannot be deleted until they have been fully constructed. If items never seem to be completed, you may not have the materials required. For example, if you want to place an Apricot Tree, you must have at least 5 Apricots and 5 Logs in storage. Not all Decorative Items can be removed using the Removal Tool. If you click on the item, there may be a ""+"" sign or a trash can in the window. If you don't see either, you should be able to remove the item using the standard Remove Structures Tool. If there is a trash can, click on it to remove the item. If there is a + sign, click on it to make the item impassible. After it is destroyed and rebuilt, use the regular Remove Structures tool to remove it. View full article
  3. Im working on CC in 3d and listening to an Australian band from about 20 years ago called Powderfinger. i'm also watching a great ship building series called SV Seeker: What about you?
  4. Version 1.75

    8,923 downloads

    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!

  5. This is a special type of crop field, designed to be planted with "cash crops;" those that are high value, non edible and used to make other products - such as Cotton and Tobacco. Most of these are categorized as Miscellaneous. If you plant these cash crops in a crop field and your food limit is reached, the field will not be harvested. However, if you plant them in a Plantation Field they will be harvested. Crops that we recommend planting in Plantation Fields include: Bamboo Canola Cotton Flax Hemp Sugar Cane Tobacco View full article
  6. Seems LiF: Forest Village has a small, early, mod community growing. (looking at the steam group and discussions) From what I can tell it supports a much larger range of modding than banished. Shame I am not very interested in it. Does anyone know much about it?
  7. After months of not even touching my pc i've been playing xcom 2 again And also a bit of endless space 2 I love cities skylines, just play whatever you feel
  8. A little site edit today here, you can go to a users member profile by clicking their name and if they have contributed any files to the community downloads section there is now a Files tab on their profile that will display them all in chronological order. Downloads remains the central repository, this is just a little quality of life edit i thought might be useful.
  9. Very nice work here! Great looking models, the texture choices are excellent. Really well done!
  10. 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
  11. Here we have a look at Ostriv, a town builder that has been in development since 2014 by one person. http://ostrivgame.com/home/
  12. Absolutely And Welcome!
  13. haha ok, when i get back on my computer i'll add information here with screenshots to this conversation
  14. You've all been busy here. There's a simple trick to getting leaves to move and etc. No need to fiddle around with uv maps. Let me know if you're interested still.
  15. Hi! I'll be back soon. About a week or more ago ive been in hospitals for a number of days with some problem. Ive another operation next week, I hope to be back shortly after.
  16. I made a video on AO and Banished. Some important information: AO needs to use UVW channel 2 Make sure your textures are not applied to your mesh, and that you are using just a basic light grey material. The default material in 3d studio max is fine. I am using 3D studio Max, but the principle is the same for all 3d editing software Because im using Nvidia Mental Ray renderer, I choose "Ambient Occlusion (MR)" in the video for the "Output". You will choose "Diffuse" or "Lighting Map" if you dont have an AO selection in your software. It works just the same as long as you put a white (255) light in your scene.
  17. Wait, what are you guys trying to do? Snow and no snow.... Confused
  18. 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
  19. I've got lots of catching up to do :)

      Glad you're feeling better! "Welcome back" doesn't quite say how happy we are that you're back :)

      Waaa? I log on to see 'ShockPuppet liked...' my heart skipped a beat.

      Although... I do find it kinda strange that you and @rejectedegg both return on the same day...

  20. Version 1.62

    1,851 downloads

    A complete gameplay expansion. After countless hours of development and testing, we are proud to bring you Colonial Charter 1.6 - The Forge Awakens 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. Installing: Disable/Delete any previous version of Colonial Charter, enable Colonial Charter The Forge Awakens in the mod menu. NEW GAMES ONLY: CC: The Forge Awakens does require a new game. Introduction: New content is everywhere in this release, almost doubling in size from New Frontier. We expanded the mining and industry options considerably, provide new and beautiful options for your town/village whilst enhancing and optimising the decorations and existing trees from past versions. We also provide a range of new crops whilst splitting the old duplicate crops off into their own addon pack. In CC: The Forge Awakens you'll mine for tin and copper, build an array of new and beautiful homes and get family and industry set up right on top of the lakes and rivers. An all new quay wall construction system will allow you to create seamless designs of any style. Farming inedible crops gets a whole lot easier, build a plantation for your cotton/flax/tobacco/etc and adjust your dry goods limits accordingly. There is a whole host of new buildings and options, and we've tweaked existing buildings to be more crisp without sacrificing performance. A lot of features have been simplified whilst at the same time becoming more complex, allowing for a large number of options. Constructing new buildings for the most part no longer requires large chains of bricks, glass, joists etc. Whilst we havent removed any of these resources from the game, they are now used to create generic Building Supplies - essential for any advanced construction project. We hope you'll enjoy playing Colonial Charter 1.6 - 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 this holidays, for all the right reasons of course!

  25. I just ordered myself a pro art tablet specifically to draw for games. This should really help with hand drawn components and visuals.
