Are there any plans for a plain wooden paling fence? Roughly 6' or 7' high with no gaps between palings. I'm kind of surprised that no one has made one of those yet.

Yeah tomorrow I'm going to make one.

I want it too.

Wall sounds like it might be more medieval than colonial (maybe?) but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Far from it. :)

Paling fence looks good but can we have it in plain grey weathered timber as well? I know you know how to make plain grey timber look good. :)

There's nothing wrong with a few minor departures from the whole colonial theme. In my mind the Banished world exists somewhere between real life and fantasy. Just about anything that isn't modern can fit in nicely.

Sounds good to me. Personally I'd like to see all the military stuff taken out of CC and turned into an optional extra. I don't use it, I never will use it, so for me all it does is make my game take longer to load.

Then after 1.7 you can go and make your own version of Banished that doesn't have so many annoying limitations. :)

And for me its a must have :)

I think people don't realise that one of the best buildings in the mod is the quartermaster and associated chains.

I'm sure many people like the fort set but personally I'm just not into the whole military aspect. One of the unique things about Banished is the compete lack of combat, so I like to keep it that way. :)

Obviously I'm not asking for it to be completely removed. The suggestion from Shock is have a core CC and optional extras. To me, from all the existing content the bit that really stands out as different/separate/optional is the military stuff. You could argue the docks, too, but I suspect that far more people use that set so separating it would probably be a waste of time.

But the idea of a modular CC is a very good one - for me at least. Load times are slow and getting slower as new modders add to the mix. Being able to leave out stuff you don't want would certainly help. But I'd probably still install just about everything that BL releases. :)

I like you. Feel free to hang out on the site as much as you like. Snacks on the top shelf, drinks in the cooler. Watch anything you like on the TV, but stay away from Disney - it makes @Kralyerg nervous.

Is there angled pieces on the fences? Not so much the large city wall, but the fences I tend to use the angled pieces that some existing fences in game already have. The game is very perpendicular. I like to get away from that here and there. I dont know how many people actually use those though, perhaps see if a large amount chime in on the matter. I love that tall wooden wall, makes me want to watch more Walking Dead. As always, great work.
