What can you build in 20 days?

Postby Szkeptik » Tue Jan 24, 2012 1:25 pm

Since I only have the demo yet, I thought I'd see what I can make of my 20 days.

When I started 4 of my settlers were killed in the first few days, so I started building up with just 3 guys.

I built a farmland to the North of the village and expanded it as the food requirements grew. Later on, as I got a kitchen up I added a pigfarm as well. You can also see the entrance to the stone mine.

This is a picture of the village itself. With the diner in the center, Hospital to the Northeast and Smelter and kitchen to the East and Southeast. Personal houses here and there.

This picture is a little elaboration on how I organize my stuff. All the barrels in the storeroom next to the dining room have the prepared foods in them, while the raw food barrels are dedicated to the single food type that's required in the room. For example the one in the kitchen only accepts raw pork, the one in the bakery only flour etc. Barrels next to the carpenter only accept wood. I keep the stone supply underground.

I had another picture with the roofs on, but looks like 3 pictures is the max.

So start a game and show me what You can build in 20 days!

Here is what I have after 20 days.

First what I have built abovegrounds. My metal workshop is only visible as a little bit of roof on the right side. There are also some more farms and ranches outside the screen.

Here is the typical layout I use belowgrounds. In the middle there is the ladder to the surface, on the two sides of it are hospital and eating room. This makes sure that goblins which follow injured people get kiilled fast - near the hospital there are always lots of people. Around this there are personal rooms. I prefer the layout with corridors, though this might a bit more inefficient. (Would you be able to sleep if someone walks through your room?)

Wow! 19 people in 20 days. Not bad.

Building rooms underground sure makes it faster.

I try to ramp up the number of people as fast as possible. Usually I do the first idle-round around day 5, as the increased number of people makes all the tasks easier. However, now it is even at the beginning necessary to have a weapon for everyone, not only some spare food.

I do not notice a lot of storage area or containers in your town, szkeptik. I learned that a place for keeping the stuff is vital for foodstuff. And I need to get the mud and stone out from below, so I can put in decoration, so I have storage for mats as well. Then there are smaller areas for weapons, armor, tools to get them out of the way - it just adds up.

On the last picture you can see six prepared food barrels in the center. Raw food and materials barrels are specialised for 1-2 things and are located near to the building that uses them. I don't like how storage areas look so I don't use them.

That's a really nice layout, gives me ideas for when I restart :)!

Hope you manage to get the full version, 20 days just doesn't seem enough!

No, 20 days are really not enough. The town I did show has now a month more, 37 people, and many of them habe spiderite or goblinite armor. As the theme of the thread is "20 days" I decided to show the town at 20 days - and then I continued playing it. I bought back in 0.37 days. (And I get to support the guys who created the fun game.)

@Szkeptik: I like to have open storage areas. This way I can see at a glance if stocks run low. On the other hand they use up very much space, and space is much scarcer now in 0.40.x (Those evil hills.)
