I like to build small outpost hamlets as I expand into new territory. With this mod you don't have to build a granary, warehouse, markets and a church just to support a handful of settlers. I have made simplified workplaces which cut down on the number of workers and fit into a smaller space.
These workplaces don't produce much but they should be sufficient for a hamlet of 10 or 12 people. Once these workplaces are up and running, your settlers should not need to travel back to the main town.
Builder's Table. A smaller version of the Builder's Workshop with the same functionality.
Preacher's Tent. A tent where the itinerant preacher delivers God's word. Villagers visit to satisfy their need for Faith.
Forager's Cart. A cart for two workers that gathers and sells berries. Villagers buy directly from the cart.
Trapper's Tent. A tent for two trappers to hunt and sell game. I have renamed Boar to "Game" in this mod to make it more generic, but the trappers work just like the hunter's hut, they need a hunting zone. Villagers buy food directly from the tent.
If you load this mod after loading Security and/or Fuel, you will also get two additional items:
Woodcutter's Cart (Fuel mod). Cuts wood and sells it as fuel. Room for two woodcutters.
Camp Fire (Security mod). Keeps the hamlet feeling secure by always having a fire going (and something nice brewing in the pot). The Fire Keeper gathers wood like a woodcutter so make sure there are trees nearby.
To activate these two items just make sure to put Frontier Essentials last in the mod load order.
- Warehouse and Granary workers will not pick up from these workplaces, because they are selling directly to villagers (like market stalls).
- I can't provide simplified housing yet so the villagers using this mod will still need and build normal houses.
- The Builders tend to hammer on their own table when preparing for a job, I can't change that behavior.
This mod incorporates Fantasy Decorations by RaisinMuff1n for the camp fire (that mod will load automatically when you install this one). I highly recommend the decorations from that mod for your settlement.
