Hunted for other comments on this but came up empty. My trade boats come downstream on the main river with the current like usual but then turn around and go back upstream. Later they come down the big river again, go past the trading post and leave the map like normal. This has happened with multiple maps and different trading posts. I'm using MM8 with additional mods. It's behaving like boats coming up the small river with no exit so they go back the way they came in. (also using a new pc and win10 but this shouldn't matter other than I'm fumbling around trying to make print screen work).
I don't understand flowers. the seeds, when offered by traders are crazy expensive (see screen snips.) but if a trader has the actual flower, it usually has only one, and it's usually only worth 2 units. i would just plant a crop and see what happens, but they also don't seem to ever be the default start crop, at least for me. (and i start a lot of maps, usually 5-10 maps before i settle on one that gives me the stuff i like best... plus i almost always start a new town every time i play, so i am checking/rejecting maps every time.) by the time i can afford flower seeds at a trade post, i mostly don't want them as much as i want other items... do flowers work in the greenhouse? it would be incredible - and worth the expense - if i could pay 35,000 for jatropha seeds, grow them, add their flowers to the greenhouse, and generate seeds in turn to sell back at trade post. why, i'd be rich, i tell you! apart from native artifacts, seeds are the most valuable trade items. i didn't think there was a way to produce them, though. ...is there?
I have not touched or modified my rivers or waters at all so its not something I've bugged out. I will say my river system is a bit odd shaped but so far I have had no problems. Aside from the merchants going back on themselves. They come down stream then when I dismiss them they do a 180 and go back up stream instead of down stream. Kind of weird because if they come from down stream the path is much shorter. But I was begging for a merchant to come because I have no building supplies and its early in the game still so I have no means of making any yet. So I was intensly watching for one to come and I have 5 trading post so I really want one... haha Finally one came with another behind it not too far behind. I watched the first one come and it didn't turn into the first one, so I just thought okay maybe its just going to the last one or one of the one's in the middle. But nope, it completely went past all of them so I thought okay... I know I didn't already talk to him or anything. I kept watching him and there is a big lake in the middle of the river so I thought well maybe the river is messing up their pathing, so maybe its gonna circle the lake and come back and it kind of half circled it and at some points I thought he was gonna completely turn around but nope! If anything I felt like he knew I was watching him so he was messing with me >.< haha... well once he got to the other side of the lake he just went on down the river.. Me confused I was "Okay? I guess hes just going?" I kept watching him and then as soon as he went off map. BOOM! notification a merchant has arrived? WTF? and there he was... Like a mysterious rebel who defies all laws of banished physics.. With the other one that was behind him. Which had no problems going strait to my trading post. Anyone have any explanations of this? or have had a similar thing before? With either their merchants doing a 180 on themselves or teleporting? I did read one post about how one guy had merchants going up and down stream but that's about it.
