"Book" from traders

I can't find any dox on "book" brought in by traders.  They are expensive!  What are they used for?  Do they go in the libraries?

 

Thanks!

They're not really for buying. They're for selling.

The Monastery employs Monks who can create Books.

There's not really a use for them except for trade.

Since some of the latest updates to mods like CC and so on, when using Jamie's Monastery (the mod that adds the books) I have never had the monastery actually produce any books even though they have had all the resources they needed. I really like the model for the monastery so I continue to use the mod anyway.

The books are available from the trader every now and then but I never seem to have any being produced so that I can sell them. They're a good trade item for really expensive purchases (from memory I think they are worth 400 units) such as buying three or more different seed types.

I know from past experiences that Stop Burning the Coal , No Coal in Houses and Stop Burning all the Coal used to hinder the Monastery from being able to hold it in its inventory.  

But modders change the way their mods work from time to time so I don't know if they still work that way or not, since I no longer use them. 

I am also thinking I had read it somewhere (possibly on the old site, maybe) that CC has something in it about coal usage in homes.  

Here are a few quotes I found on both of these sites, maybe they can offer some clarity :)

I think the issue some people were having was what you described, that coal was being stored as iron. The way to prevent citizens from using coal as fuel is to remove the "Fuel" flag from the item. However, to let citizen pick up coal, I would either have to add "CoalFuel" as an item citizens can carry (requiring me to modify additional files and increasing the likelihood of incompatibility) or add the "Iron" flag (which citizens can already carry) to coal. I opted for the second solution, and coal being stored with iron is the result of that.

 

And while reading over this  it seems there was a compatibility issue at one time with Specialized Stockpiles.  Only @ShockPuppet or @Kralyerg would have an answer to that.

Thanks @rejectedegg that actually sparks a memory or two. I do recall now that I had being using a mod like Stop Burning All The Coal before I started using CC but I also seem to remember that I didn't have a problem with the monastery at that time.

Fact is, I have a bunch of mods running together and anything could have happened to stop the monastery from working properly, I just don't know. Something I should try is changing the load order of the monastery to see if that makes any difference (I don't recall exactly where it is in the load order at the moment but it's somewhere above CC).

I can't really recall when flags got changed, but I myself remember using it

and had to stop using it myself.   I believe back then I was having the compatability issue between it and Specialized Stockpiles though.

OK, I built a Monastery, and am slamming books into the trading posts.  Wonderful idea, those books!

 

THanks!

Adriana's Monastery was created by Red Ketchup. Books make wonderful trade items. :)
