All buildings are custom and the town gameplay evolves around gaining wealth. In the middle of the town there is a pit with a huge pile of goldcoins (its nowhere filled in this savegame) And the end goal is to fill the pile with gold, i have not counted how much it can hold, but a quick guess is 1 million…
The town focus its trade on corn flour, clay tea pots, stone gargoyls and tapestries… oh and of course gold ingots
To save time, due to being constantly attacked, I decided I should first design a way to make a wall that can be placed as I need it that can be built in a reasonable amount of time. In solving this problem I ended up making this thread: My Experience Designing Defenses [Wall Templates]
Some things I had planned to do is make a moat going around the wall as well as a watermill with a waterfall to power it feeding into a small pond that would connect to an underground tunnel system so that I could have street drains in some spots.
Unfortunately this project has become too time consuming to finish in time for stream 300 so I’ve decided to share it now instead. I ended up finding a number of problems during this project and its made progress grind to nearly a halt as I have had to rebuild the entire wall, road and some buildings multiple times. Saving a 100MB game takes a fair bit of time and disk space, I’m up to 15GB for this project and its not even done. Due to this I play with autosave disabled and when I run into problems and a build fails or the game crashes or has a memory leak or the mods don’t work the progress I lost is very disheartening and I have to go back and try again until it doesn’t. Ah well, its alpha but I have high hopes for A23 and beyond.
All in all this was a really interesting thing to work on and I learned a lot from it and had fun trying to solve the problems along the way.
Here are the threads I made that came about due to this project:
I was hoping to make an epic city - well, as epic as I can muster, at least - prior stream 300 was upon us.
However, I’ve put so much time into modding and other coding-things that I’ve come to realize my city is hardly even started in time for stream 300 xD
But, when looking at the cities other people have shared in this thread, I think it’s safe to say you still got some epic cities to include in number 300.
I think my favourite cities are… well, ALL OF THEM!
I’d also like to suggest/request @forsmanos to share his cities from their thread into this one; the two cities in there just look amazing in my opinion!
Just watched stream 300. I managed to shut down my alarm while i slept (of all the streams to miss, this is by far the one i have waited mostly one watching live)… Thank you for the words regarding the Tailz trading co. town, that means alot.
And what a treat to see all of the team (almost) gathered in one spot. I am personally looking forward to what we can expect in 2018
