Screenshot spam time!
Yes, I decided to make yet another idyllic settlement in peaceful mode, and took a few screenshots of it. Dropbox link is below for those who want it (eg more screenshots for @Tom )…
The main entrance. Sadly the camera didn’t want to angle itself low enough to get a nice view right down the path .
The village is a “U” shape around the lake and protected on 3 sides by the cliffs. At the top of the “U” though is the entrance, and then this rather flashier wall.
Fisherman’s house & jetty, with the church just visible in the background.
The church. Annoyingly, the lower roofing is all placed in one go, as I’d have preferred to do different angles. Oh well, alpha & all that.
The town from the rear at night.
The main entrance. Ultra-efficient 1x10 strip farms are just visible, but you need a keen & knowing eye to realise they’re gaming the farm system from here IMHO.
The multi-storey inn, complete with small balcony.
Behind the scenes. Bit depressing though: 2.75 full, max-size stockpiles entirely of food is barely enough to get my town size up to 18 (!).
