I've used it before, thus my original 11 x 11 fields... but then while I was watching the playthough I mentioned before, and Noble mentioned that with Farmer pickup disabled, you could increase the size of the fields by 50% or so. So I gave it a try and they were much more efficient. One Worker + 11 x 11 = roughly 840 food. One worker + 10 x 18 = roughly 1280 food. Sure they take up a good bit more space, but I don't mind that much as I get so much more food from that one worker.

Those calculators are great for vanilla Banished though. I'm still using it's recommendations for pasture sizes as they're already big enough. lol

EDIT: Within CC/MegaMod, I find that 15x15 Dense Orchards have been very efficient with one Farmer. I need to do more testing before I'm sure that's the most efficient size however.

@Azure Lyrrix Ah interesting. I don't use the mod to disable Farmer pickup so I've found the vanilla sizes work quite well (although sometimes with a small adjustment to field size). This all contributes to our knowledge base for Banished so it's quite interesting to me to hear people's experiences with the different mods. :)

Hi folks! I'm Seona, which is pronounced SHOW-nah rather than as the spelling suggests. ;) I live in Melbourne, Australia with my mum and two cats. When gaming, I divide my time between city-builders and RPGs. I also role-play with some real-world groups a couple of times a week, because I am just that geeky. :D

More Aussies! 

And as for being geeky, nothing wrong with that. There's a few of us here that fall into the same category :D

I used to but it's been a long time! Now if I'm lucky I get to hang out in URealms streams.

Welcome all :)

Hello.  I love banished but haven't played for quite a while.  I am really looking forward to playing the mod.  

I am 49 years old from the Chicago area.

I'm Calli, now from the Netherlands but originally from the British Isles, I started playing banished around a year or so ago as I love city builders and my son suggested I try it. I love how peaceful the game is too play and before I started playing with mods I decided to get all the acheivements. When I first tried CC I found it overwhelming, but now I can't play without it. My banished hero has to be Paeng, his cities are always so beautiful to look at and if I can build them half so good I would be happy. I am really suprised at how much CC has added to the game, it's like having a whole new expansion and to think it's all done voluntarily by the modding community makes me amazed. I also play sims, and find it hard to have to pay so much for each new addition to the game. Another favourite game is Cities Skylines, but my traffic management is terrible and I end up stressed. That's something I like about Banished, apart from considering distance between storage areas, there isn't much to manage with traffic, build stone roads and you are good to go :).

Well I was at the other location, but I never talked at all I don't believe?

I like all kinds of games, fanatically.  I'm solo and retired so I have a lot of time to invest into the activity of gaming. I have loved base builders and the sort for a long time but only resently found the enjoyment of city builders.  I think I'd love to see a game like Banished combined with a game like Transport Fever.  where you build the buildings and town and supply them with trains, trucks, busses.trams, boats and aeroplanes.  I also love strategy games like Civ5 sorts like 6,  meh.. MMO's involving Fantasy and games like starcraft.  

I am Reino by the way..  and I've forgotten how to create a height map using google pic's   sigh.
