Introductions & Updates
Greetings from Canada
I've become addicted to Banished and especially with the mods. I love city building and the mega mod allows me to add artistry to a basic survival game. If I ever figure out where windows 10 hides F12 screen captures I'll send you some.

I do need some help. Is there a guide to the megamod? I keep getting to about 800 peeps and face mass starvation.
  • Is processed food better than straight off the tree? By how much. I would really love a full food guide with what is worth what if there is a difference. and if there isn't? Why the hell not. 
  • What accounts for the huge variance in one farms' production from 1 year to the next?
  • Suggestions on most efficient farm? I\'ve heard so many so can I ask why you select that size?
  • Building in remote locations. Any way to incentivize a builder to make the long walk?
  • Any way to encourage taking a house near your job?
  • Is there any mod that provides much better settlement data? How much of each food was produced, where it went? How many workers have which tools? I need data ti figure out where my problem is.
Love all your guys work, please keep it up.
Just downloaded your version 8 but not being a computer expert if it doesn't install itself I may be stuck with version 6.

I'm sure I'll be back with more questions and eventually my dream list of suggestions.

https://steamcommunity.com/app/242920/di...946549340/ is the best thing I can offer you, it's sort of the "base rules" to play Banished

I think most of those questions would b ebetter a bit further down in the forum to avoid cluttering the welcome-thread, or you can try to poke people on the Discord channel and hope you catch someone online for a chat about how things work and what's what! Smile

Thanks.
I won't run my questions here. I think I'm seeing part of my problem. I get distracted by my majestic construction plans and take my eye off what's important.

Hi,

I plaqyed banished first time in 2014 or 2015 and now came back to play it again with all the mod possibilities that are existing now. 
Thanks for all the cool things you have developed since then!

I've been playing Colonial Charter for some time but haven't been on the forum lately.

I recently introduced a friend who loves city builders to Banished and been drawn back in.  I'm probably going to start the Mega Mod - I've always enjoyed the variety of Colonial Charter and want to see how much more is offered in the Mega-Mod.
