Well, this is just a round-up of what happened to the town of Ranson after 30 years since it was established. But before that, a quick comparison between the perfect outpost and an ordinary one, with a woodcutter around.
This is where the town was founded upon and it’s currently where the Town Hall and Market resides. We have an Inn to place the newcomers and also for the elderlies to move there when they are alone. The Hospital and the Church are also nearby for the townsfolk if they needed.
We expanded towards the northwest corner of the map in the aim of reaching the river for our Trading Dock. In the meantime, we increased the food production with these crops.
This was done, southwest of the map where there were more flat lands. We needed the space for pastures and for the orchards. It is also at a point where a grid-like structure is more suited for this because we want to maximise the crop/pasture areas.
This is really the best place to get all the work done. Every Trading Dock is working around the clock to ensure that the people of Ranson are well fed, well clothed and generally happy.
