Colonial Charter 1.7 Dev Blog #1

The garden bed kit has different pieces and people know how to walk over the top of them (instead of ghosting through them [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/wink.png[/img]/emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" title=";)" width="20" /> )

Its got 2 main features, dirt pieces, and wooden edge pieces. The wooden pieces are your edges, there's straight ones and corner ones and tight ones. After they're built you can go ahead and build the dirt squares to fill it all up. These will all be "roadbound" meaning both road decorations/plants and ghost decorations/plants will be able to be built there.


Nice! The garden bed will look great in a backyard. I really like how you used Ambient Occlusion, I never figured that out.


Im making a partially sunk rock bridge, good for the small rivers.

(some of the existing Plank Bridge in the shot for no particular reason)



Brilliant idea! [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile.png[/img]/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" title=":)" width="20" /> looks good.


Tomorrow I'll make a fallen tree log bridge. I'm hoping to start on a covered bridge for the big rivers too (sleepy hollow anyone?)

Sounds good to me. Personally I'd like to see all the military stuff taken out of <abbr title="Colonial Charter">CC</abbr> 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. [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile.png[/img]/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" title=":)" width="20" />

I 10000000000 (infinite 0's) agree with this  (including the part about the Military stuff)   

And with that being said ... you get my 100 Thumbs Up  [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile.png[/img]/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" title=":)" width="20" />[img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/58462f70003fe_EmojisApplebyKawaiiDarkToxic553.png[/img] (that is 2 hands with 50 thumbs per hand)

I can see why you think the Fort set isn't needed but I actually use them for things not intended. I use the Barracks all the time. Makes a good admin building near mines and trading posts. I've used the parade ground when creating a horse ranch as a training area. I love the well. The tents and campfire make a good campground by a stream. The towers look good as a watchtower at the entry to a lake - and so on. I really like the Blocktower, but I think it should be buildable early on (one of the reasons I can't stop using the Debug menu).  

I love the new wall pieces!

I never thought about using some of the pieces in it out of the context they were made for , but I must admit <a contenteditable="false" data-ipshover="" data-ipshover-target="<___base_url___>/index.php?/profile/6-estherhb/&do=hovercard" data-mentionid="6" href="<___base_url___>/index.php?/profile/6-estherhb/">@estherhb</a> you are now giving me some great ideas on other uses for it [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile.png[/img]/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" title=":)" width="20" />

And yeah I have the same problem with Debug, I have to slap my hand to keep from trying to give myself the materials that I need to build something that I would like to build before I am meant to build it [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/sad.png[/img]/emoticons/sad@2x.png 2x" title=":(" width="20" />[img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/5846341c16f5c_EmojisApplebyKawaiiDarkToxic476.png[/img][img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/biggrin.png[/img]/emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" title=":D" width="20" />

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 <a contenteditable="false" data-ipshover="" data-ipshover-target="<___base_url___>/index.php?/profile/3-kralyerg/&do=hovercard" data-mentionid="3" href="<___base_url___>/index.php?/profile/3-kralyerg/">@Kralyerg</a> nervous.

And ofc there is this  


First, the rock bridge. That's genius! Could also do a wood one, where the logs stand on end. Second, if you make the wooden edge pieces for the garden 2 to 4 times taller, you'll have yourself a really nice looking retaining wall. I've been using palisade walls for that, looks a bit off. Of course, there is probably other things that could be used I have missed as well. So much stuff. Don't know how you all find the time. Cant wait to see the upcoming topiary. [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/biggrin.png[/img]/emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" title=":D" width="20" />

Finished baking the Ambient Occlusion for the new rock bridge today. Now, onto the next addition...
