giggle Congratulations on your huge 'village'. Can't imagine having 1,300 villagers. I've had over 100 villagers few times and gotten a few achievements, which always surprised me since I wasn't thinking about making achievements.
Do you have smaller 'villages' making up the whole area? A few saves I had, had spread across rivers and had almost two of the extra buildings for each area. Have you gotten the Llama? I put it in my game but a village was never able to get it ( it was never offered at the trading post).

I follow a formula. I start each area with a market. Around the market I put farms with one barn for each four fields and two house for four farmers. My field size preference is 7 x 7 as you only need one farmer. You have to keep the houses all within the radius of the market. The barns don't have to be within the radius. Close around the market I put a school, woodcutter and three houses for the teacher, woodcutter and two vendors. Next I go outside and place a forester, gatherer and hunting cabin. Their barn is at the outside of the gatherer's radius with a stock pile beside it. Close to the edge of the market radius I place six houses for the forest hub workers. Next, in another area, I place one house for the cleric and physician and build a church, hospital and cemetery. The church, cemetery and hospital don't have to be within the market radius, but the house does. If I can, I squeeze in pastures and one house for each.

Here is a picture of the layout of one area. The forest hub is through the tunnel near the bottom of the picture.
Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Layout10

Each area is self sufficient hopefully. The key is to build the market first and let them stock before you build the houses for the vendors. Then build the jobs and houses in small sections so they don't clean out the market. Then I move on to another are and repeat.

I'm playing vanilla. There is no Llama in vanilla. I think there is one in the Colonial Charter mod.

Walking on water! Laughing
If I don't start right away with crop fields the villagers starve. And have to have at least one house for them go get warm in cold season. Then it's adding a hunter, blacksmith, tailor and waiting to add the other jobs and public buildings, one at a time. It's adding one at a time otherwise there's a disaster and most of the time the villagers don't seem to recover from a disaster. Or else they just plain won't work or gather even wood ( that was the last game I tried). Which makes for a boring game.
Using the market instead of a barn is very innovative.
Have to ask. Is a vanilla game using only the easiest, no frills/extras, game? I've heard this term before but not exactly what it means.

A vanilla game is using the game as it comes from the creator with no nods.

The plan I outlined above is a few years after start up.

Well that's a relief! My lack of success is probably due to a disorganized building thing. At some pint the villagers get ticked off about something and won't progress. The last game it was, I think, that I was trying to get them to build a market and they wanted another storage barn so there was no place to put the harvests. They got mad and started dying. Crying or Very sad I gave up and let them build another barn.

Sorry I'm seeing this so much later. They will still need barns even in later game. The barns should be very close to the source. eg: next to the fields.

I'm currently playing a lot of Minecraft. I started because I wanted to practice my landscaping skills.

Later I got the inspiration to build a castle and walled in city.

Very much a work in progress.

I have a new map, different from the one above, that I've been playing on for about a year. This is some of my progress so far. I call it Tarra.

Here is a map of the area.

Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Map10

This is the church I built a couple of weeks ago.

Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Church10

This is the farm area. The church is on the left. In the foreground are the fields. In the centre of the picture is a farmhouse. Far right is the stables and next to that is the barn. Between the barn and the fields are animal pens. They are hard to see. In the background you can see my jungle tree farm.

Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Farms10

The is a different angle on the farm area. The stable on the left. There is a living area on the second floor. Next to it is the barn receiving some hay for storage. On the right of the cow and sheep pens is the paper mill with the sugar cane farm behinds it. On the right is my birch tree farm. In the distant back is an area for the upper class. Up behind the church.

Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Farm10

This is the lumber mill surrounded by some of the tree farms.

Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Lumber10

Here is an area of housing. On the left is the quarry building with housing on the second floor. I'm standing on the garden centre.

Banished and Minecraft Play - Page 9 Housin10

Here is the beginning of the upper class area with lookout towers.

And finally a view of the Tarra from one of the towers.

I have been playing Banished again the past months. Trying to get a village population up to 200 and not having any luck with that.
The current play was only 11 villagers away from my goal when I accepted 26 Nomads to the village. Didn't take long before things went haywire and villagers started to starve to death. They just kept dying until the population was down at least a quarter. That was the second time that admitting 26 Nomads caused a dying trend in a village. I haven't had time to go on the forum there to see if there was a reason to that from game play. This is my third try to get a village population up, the other 2 saves ( different villages) just would not grow.

I discovered cool custom content ( Medieval houses and cool bridges, etc. ) but haven't had time to ask at the Banished forum about it.

Hi Gram, sorry to hear that. Did you have a hospital in the village? I usually have one or two. I've never had that many people die. It's usually only one or two. That is weird.

Good luck with the custom content and, of course, have fun.
