  1. Could be several things. Unfortunately crash dump files aren't very useful. Have you tried subscribing to the mod from the Steam Workshop or by downloading it yourself? Which mods are you trying to use (include version). Are you using Banished version 1.0.7? When you load the mod, at what point does the game crash? When you make any changes to the mod list, be sure to exit the game completely before starting a new town. It helps prevent crashes.
  2. Make sure the current version of Banished - v 1.0.7 build 170910. The version is shown at the bottom of the opening screen. As Red Ketchup says, you must extract the 3 .pkm files from the .rar file you downloaded using a program you already may have that willl do that or one like 7-Zip (which can be obtained free from the internet). The 3 .pkm files need to be moved into your Banished > WinData folder; they can't be in a subfolder. The WinData folder must contain 4 other files: data0.pkg, data1.pkg, patch0.pkg and patch1.pkg. When you open Banished, the 3 MegaMod files should appear in Mods. It shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes to get to the opening menu. Make sure the 3 files are in the correct order (1, 2, 3), and check each one. Then exit the game completely before starting a new game. That will help prevent crashes. If you are completely new to mods in Banished, I would recommend that you start by using something that isn't as complex (and HUGE) as MegaMod which includes Colonial Charter 1.76 plus 200 or so additional mods.. Since you are on the BlackLiquid forum, of course I would recommend Colonial Charter 1.76, but Red Ketchup's Editor's Choice (RKEC) mod is really nice too plus there's a "light" version you might want to try 1st. Both CC 1.76 and RKEC are available on the Steam Workshop (if you use Steam) or CC 1.76 can be downloaded from here and RKEC can be downloaded from WorldofBanished.com.
  3. Banished was developed by a single person and I think it's really important to support him by BUYING a game he spent so many hours developing. Banished normally retails for $19.99. Several times a year, it goes on sale, sometimes for 66% off - $6.68. To me, there is no reason to pirate any games, much less this one. Personally? I'm glad you can't get it to run!
  4. There is a product on the list of items you can order that has reached it's limit. When I compare the Limits with the Current Quantity on hand shown in the Town Arrival window, it shows that the limit for Textiles is 600; you already have 630 on hand. Therefore that limit has been exceeded and you may not order anything that is considered a Textile. I have no idea whether the Chartered Company will still allow you to order other items in other categories whose limits haven't been exceeded, such as Tea which is a Luxury - I never use the Chartered Company. I will try to find out for you. (I also noticed the window for the building lists "Dry Goods" which is no longer the name of a flag/category used.)
  5. MM 8.01 contains all of the decorations. The "Deco Pack" was designed for use with MM7 and can't be used separately.
  6. You should be using MegaMod 8.01 HERE. Note that this folder contains 3 files. After you uncompress the .rar file into the 3 .pkm files, put the 3 files (not the folder) in your Banished > WinData folder. Then go into the game, activate all 3 mods. Remember that anytime you make changes to your mod list, you need to exit Banished completely before starting a new game to help prevent crashes. Then you can go in and start a new game.
  7. The max symbol (an up arrow with a line above it) indicates that it can't produce something in the list of items you can buy based on the flag/category. You can check the quantity on hand with the flag limits to see which flag it is.
  8. Sounds good, but I don't think disasters can be modded.
  9. Actually, I think the problem is with Slope Conforming Pastures. Red Ketchup suggested that you always make sure the shelter part of the pasture is on flat ground.
  10. Are any of your pastures partly on a slope? I've heard that can cause issues.
  11. @stiles Which mod/mods are you referring to that produce/use Thatch. Just an FYI to those that may not know - Colonial Charter does not.
  12. Welcome! It will be wonderful to have another modder
  13. Processed food is often very profitable when you look at the value of the items used vs the quantity of items produced. You may want to look at the production spreadsheet may give you a better understanding of what is profitable and what isn't: Production Spreadsheet. Modders pretty much work on whatever grabs their interest. Maybe someone will see your suggestions regarding peat and cow pats and make a mod or maybe not. Hard to tell.
  14. This is a mod in Kralyerg's Kave of Krazy Kontraptions: Renewable Resources v2
  15. You might try switching from DX9 to DX11 or vice versa. I found that switching to DX11 really sped up loading and didn't cause any crashes (however it made the game crash for Vrayna). It is worth a try.
