Dear Mibeshu, Donbar (aka Kaisiene?),
Your enthusiasm, as previoulsy highlighted, is to be welcomed, though I see no reason to start making wholesale changes as you describe. The current setup has drawn no complaints from the current villagers, who, as I've stated before, have formed a loosley coupled group, with their own aims, to which, village resources have been moulded to suit where possible, while still tending to the needs of all. Granted, farming seems to have taken a back seat these days, so that land could be utilised differently. The FC2 is handy for villagers on the North side maybe, while the FC1 for the Southerners. A couple of months back, wood was short, even with two FCs, so I would welcome a dedicated lumberjack with sole (maybe with an apprentice) access, to cut down (pun intended
) on those forgetting to replant, grrr.
As for village layout, I like the haphazard, quaintness of it, I'm not one for regimented US style blocks (I know you've not advocated anything this drastic, I'm just stating my view). I think there is need for a path from the North end to the West end, passing just by my back door/SK, that's a little more accessible for those wishing to get to the path to the sea.
So, to summerise, I'm not in favour of the changes. Now, if you fancy tackling the village-encompassing border fence, with outlying temporary shelter for newcomers, be my guest to submit plans for that
In the meantime, let's make Isosto's comment and in a VERY erratic way (due to the little amount of time I get to play and my inability to focus on anything for a length of time) one of my aims, to imp all walls and fences to as close to 20 as our patience and sanity allows, a priority. That gives everyone the benefit of releasing more time for doing other, more exciting things, like extending the PCG Docks/jetty and building the colossus at the end of it, oo, oo and building a ship, not just a rowing boat, yes, yes, I know we can't sail it but think how awesome it would look. On that note, if anyone sees Marmaduke, I've moved his cart to a safe place.
