  1. @KevinTheCynic Sorry to say I'm only a couple hours further towards 1100. Got sidetracked by that pesky thing called Life! I shall persevere, though. @Kerlyssa I've had Don't Starve and Don't Starve Together for years now. Highly recommend them to everyone. That's where most of my last almost 4 years of life have been spent .. I have almost 5000 hours between the two titles. I only stopped obsessing over DS when I came across Banished. I still play DST to get the weekly gifts, but once that chore is done it's back to Banished. Mind you, at my age I have all the time in the world to spend playing games. Especially when a bit physically diminished. From that point of view it's great to be old!
  2. I took a few weeks off from playing Banished and then, like you, was sooo close to 1000 hours that I just had to get there so I came back. Now I find I am at 1023 hours so of course I have to keep going to get to 1100! Can't leave it at an uneven number, now can I?
  3. Having watched the Ancient Cities video I then found myself browsing through the other upcoming city builders and older city builder videos offered on youtube which culminated in my becoming an Ancient Cities Citizen via Kickstarter! Thanks Esther!
  4. You are an artist. No other word for it. I'm always in awe of your work, as you know from what must sometimes seem like too-fulsome praise. But you keep me playing Banished in hopes of one day being able to make a town half as beautiful as the worst of yours. Thank you for sharing your towns. I look for your work every day and return to older ones time and again. In fact, I think you could make a decent living framing and selling copies of the bits you show us. Sign me up right now for your Cemetery in Moonlight and the above Campsite at Night.
  5. Much appreciated! I'd been trying to write out my own version and got thoroughly bogged down. This really helps find things you know are there but have forgotten quite where.
  6. I am honoured! My 15 minutes of fame at last!
  7. Back in early January, ozarkcrafter, I think it was, had a map with interesting lakes. Not being such a fan of lakes I slightly altered his seed and made a map in a different terrain to see what it would look like. I'd show it all here, but I don't know how. Anyway, the seed is 400600150. I used a very large map, a Mediterranean climate, and All The Wild Things as a start condition. Lo and behold a lovely island appeared. I'm having a lot of fun making a city on the island and villages all over the place. I know that All The Wild Things is basically a cheat map, but, oh, it's so much fun to see what the Banis bring home when you've sent them all out to search for stuff. I wonder what that seed will produce in Northern Pines .....
  8. Thanks for straitening things out for me, Kevin. I hope you found the map enjoyable after you finally got to it.
  9. Just call me NitWit! It's Verdant Plains. I'm having a lovely time with it, so I hope you find it enjoyable, too.
  10. Thank you very much! I was looking for the wrong thing, I suppose.
  11. I can't seem to find the CC 1.74 download. I'm probably blind, so could someone please direct me to the right place?
  12. Thanks for the update, Kralyerg, I had been keeping my fingers crossed for him.
  13. Anyone know how ShockPuppet is doing?
  14. I hate to sound like the dummy I am, but how do I find out which versions of anything I have? My Banished game on Steam has (beta) after the name, but as for the rest, I am clueless. Help?
  15. Keep those positive thoughts going! And try to find something to laugh about, laughter really works, I can testify to that as it's saved my life at least twice. After all, what would Banished be without our Shock!!??!!
  16. I made the mistake of putting in the lighthouse, the nomad well AND the Mini Town Hall and I got nomads knocking on the door every late Spring and even got them at separate places at the same time. Nothing like getting 89 nomads one place and 75 another. It was a madhouse! I shut my eyes when I turn them down so I don't have to see the disappointment on their faces.
  17. My latest town was named Inchc**k. Not sure it would go over very well with male Banifans. Made me laugh though.
  18. Thank you so much for these new spreadsheets. The ones for CC 1.62 were equally appreciated. And I have been admiring the work you have done on the Wiki .. can't imagine how long it must have taken you! ... I find I turn to the Wiki all the time especially with all the new stuff in CC 1.7, so thank you even more for ALL the work you do for us BaniFans.
  19. Love, love, LOVE CC 1.71! And I am in awe of all your talents. I would kill to be able to make my worlds look like Paeng can do. I would sell my first-born child to have the patience and talent that ShockPuppet shows. Amazing people, amazing work, and all for free!! Everyone should try to donate. Even a small sum adds up. Imagine a world with no CC in it and dig deep, people! Black Liquid may do this because they love Banished and love creating, but money makes the world go round. Thank you very, very much, Black Liquid, and anyone else who helped make this wonderful addition to Banished!
  20. Has anyone had the problem with the trader where all your trades are greyed out and you cannot trade anything? And then when I click on the Dismiss button all my trades are suddenly available, but of course the Trader is already going on his merry way, probably cursing me. I got so frustrated I dismantled the trading post entirely.
  21. Thank you very much, Paeng, that helps explain things. I hadn't played The North before but I was tired of CC crashing so much for seemingly no good reason so I was trying it out. I like it a lot so I am glad I don't have to be cut off from the world! Now I just have to find out how to make money! LOL What fun!
  22. Just wanted to say how much in awe I am of the work you do on Banished. Every time I visit the forums and see the new work on CC v1.7 my mouth waters. Is there any timeline on a release? Spring? Summer? Tomorrow? LOL And Happy Holidays, whatever your flavour, to all members and devs. May 2017 be all you've hoped for, and more.
  23. Hello to all I am a 76 yr old woman who came to gaming rather later in life than most of you. I fell in love with Might and Magic 2 back in '84, and played all the MM's and then all the Heroes up until Ubisoft got their hands on the franchise.... In '97 I was introduced to GemStone 3/4, an online text based MMORPG, and played that for 15 years. Steam came into my life in 2008 and I haven't looked back since. I've only been playing Banished for about 200 hours and haven't dared try CC yet as the one time I looked at it I knew it was way over my head until I got the base game down. I'm feeling like in another 50 hours or so I might try CC. LOL I've lurked a bit on the other forums, but decided it was time to join up. I'm English by birth, have lived all over the world, been in the US far too long and since my son lives in Australia and has an Aussie wife, I am considering going to live there. (Especially after the recent election!) Virginia is my present base.
