A fisher can also craft a boat dock (high level merchants can offer it too). This special dock allows hearthlings and monsters to cross over from one side to another of the water using boats.


Biome flora and its items

Wood, fiber, herb, food, all themed. Palm and Papaya trees has new a mechanic, you harvest it for food, but if there is no fruit yet, it will harvest for wood (cut the tree).

I’m not a 3d modeler, so I just used what I had already in game. (We have a palm tree in the game files, but we agreed that we can’t use unreleased content in our mods, I think the images used are already stretching too much that rule, even if heavy edited)

What I did with the flora was ignore the name acacia (which would never be in those biomes) and focus more into the looks, there is plenty of trees that look like that in those kind of islands, cactus are common too. It really depends on how you imagine it :stuck_out_tongue:

Kudos for respecting the authors. And thanks for this mod, this one that looks awesome! Need to try it out later.

Is there a way to traverse islands without building giant bridges?

Archipelagoes are one of my favorite terrain features ever. I love playing on them in Civ for all the naval warfare options, and in Minecraft for the building inspiration, and…

Glad to see I can soon add Stonehearth to that list.

Was thinking more in this kind

But having palms would be nice too, can’t wait for Radiant to release it.[quote=“Wiese2007, post:4, topic:19962”]

If you want, we can test it and see how it looks.

Nope :stuck_out_tongue: You can use ladders, or maybe if you have talent and enough patience some kind of ship or port connecting both sides…

Having naval technology would be nice in this map.

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.

nice this will make for a challenging game.

After this we would need a super hilly or completely on montains map type.

This is wonderful! how long did it take?

Very nice! Downloading it now - if you’d like, I could take a stab at designing a tree like that between classes tomorrow

I noticed a rather large bug where workers get stuck in walls… a lot. Dunno if its pathfinding or the generation :frowning: It happens occasionally in the desert but way less often.

Also this happened:
