A couple of tips:
The best food source is a gatherer's hut, gives about 3000 food a season. I usually have 3 forest hubs. (See my first post.)
Hunter's cabin and fishing huts I feel are next best.
Crops only harvest in the autumn so not as good until you get a better grip on food.

Make sure you don't run out of tools as they produce much less.
Make sure you don't run out of firewood as they will leave work to take firewood home and produce less.

If there is not much food they will also leave work to get food and produce less. It is a vicious circle.

If you have a trading post, you can trade for food, but you need something to trade with, like firewood if you have lots.


Thanks.  I have been growing squash and potatoes. Had 3 fishermen, 4 gathers and 3 hunters ( that's how much the building would allow) They still starved to death. I went from 35 Adults, 12 Students and some children. Now I have 10 Adults, 2 students and 2 children. I do have a trading post. I was able to get a couple sheep, so I can make and trade the wool coats. Made the mistake of trading off some surplus food for somethings. I don't think I will do that again.  I watched Pinstar's youtube video and applied some of that toward my set up which seemed to work well but then I think I spread things out too much and they had walk along way to get back to the storage barns and storage plots.  Even putting the storage plots near the work place didn't help me much. Live and learn...poor little settlers.

By the way, is there a way to take screenshots in game? I googled it but couldn't find anything.

If you check the options, it should say what the screenshots are , you can set it to whatever you like. I use F2 like Minecraft.

Wow! Looks like there is a new cult emerging.  Cool  I talked with my grandson last weekend and he's been playing it for some time and was happy to tell me all about how it works. This game is really interesting.

I guess I could start a new thread. I could call it : Ways to kill off your survivalists in Banished. I am really good at it  afraid 2 


Summer 32: My first disaster. Fire. Took my blacksmith first...including several tools that apparently had not made it to the storage barn yet....then on to one of the storage barns. I kept it going until the last tool was gone. Thankfully I have saved the original starting point. They must feel like they have done all this before.

This game is so addictive. I am having a blast and miserable at the same time. How's that for an endorsement?

Laughing  You're funny BG. I'm sure your game play will improve before you know it. Learning can be hazardous with the new games.

Oh my! Have you got version 1.02? I've started over so many times. I kept looking for a map seed that I liked. I finally found one that has a fair amount of flat land. 19490108 is the seed.

Don't forget to build the wells. Do you start on hard, medium or easy? Have you seen a tornado yet?

I think I am patched up to date but will have to check. I had a well but they used the river. I tried medium but this save was started with easy... A medium map. Tornadoes?? Oh, joy!

Did they run when they were putting out the fire. If not than you need to patch to 1.02. They should use the nearest well also if 1.02.

I finished my house and a farm in Minecraft. Finished is a relative term. I keep thinking I'm finished but find more to add.

The stone pillars you see is the start of the cattle ranch. The house on the left and the farm/mill house on the right. The sheep you see to the left will be moving to a sheep farm someday.



Another view of the farm with the mill pond.



A closer look at the mill wheel. I'm thinking I might raise the pond a bit.



Another view of the farm. That tree is a jungle tree and the pods on it are cocoa beans. Notice the 'smoke' coming out of the chimney.



The front of the farmhouse. I'm quite proud of how this turned out.



The front of my house. I think I still need to do a little work on this one.

I think they ran... They were moving pretty fast.  The river was directly behind the fire, so I think they chose the closest source.

Will the laborers only walk so far away?  I've marked some areas for destruction but they never show up. I did have a sickness outbreak. No nomads. I had a hospital and the woman went directly there and that was the end of that,thankfully.

Thank you for the seed.  Smile I really appreciate you sharing it with me.

Wow! What awesome crafting your doing, that had to take hours. Are you in creative or survival mode?

I flutter back and forth. I get tired of using the dirt elevator and use creative to get up to the roof and then switch to survival. All items used are from survival except the glowstone.

Built a cattle barn today. This is in the farm country of my world. It is right next door to the farm, so easy access to the wheat.

I loosely based it on this picture.



So here is mine.

I've never played minecraft. Is there two different stages or something? Some of it looks so stiff, square and useless, but then it's looking a bit virtual even though it's very nice. Do you need to manually render it before play or something?

Think of it as virtual Lego. It is a block based game. Everything is square blocks. Even items that look like they are not blocks take up a full block. No manual rendering required.

This will tell you a bit more about the game.

Minecraft

For the past couple of days I've been working on a Windmill in Minecraft. Still a WIP, but here are a couple of pictures.





It's slow progress. I keep running out of some of the resources for this. Namely wood and wool. I have to keep chopping down and planting more trees and waiting for the sheep to grow their fleece.  Laughing

Sounds a bit annoying. Smile   That sun is interesting looking. I think the building in the game must have been an adjustment.

Actually it's not annoying at all. There are chores to do. Bring in the crops, shear the sheep. breed the cows and butcher an older one or two. Chopping down trees and caving for rock and other resources is fun. It's a nice break from teetering on the edge three stories in the air.

Playing a new save for Banished. I'm trying for the 'Uneducated' achievement. You have to reach a population of 300 without building a school. Boy is it hard. For instance: an educated woodcutter will cut 4 firewood from one log, but an uneducated woodcutter will only cut 3 firewood from every log. So for every 2 educated woodcutters, you need to have 3 uneducated woodcutters. The same goes for farmers, tailers, blacksmiths, gatherers, foresters, hunters etc.

Clearing land and farm fields.



The resulting farm fields.



This is from my old save. Someone left the hide just laying on the grass.



Having so much fun with this.

Ooooooooooo...uneducated population.....scary! Good luck with that! Look at all those crops! I've seen the hide quite a bit, have you seen the sides of venison laying on the ground? Funny.
