Nordic log Cabin ver.7 – Productivity in workshop extension: Low (50 work units per stack of product) …could you please describe difference from productivity of normal vanila Tailor shop? how bad this extension is in comparison? because so far it seems very OP, costs almost nothing and is super tiny.


Make Stone Tools mod is brutally unbalanced, not only it costs only 1 stone, but it makes like 40 stone tools in matter of seconds almost for free, each costs 8 at a trader which is the same cost as a iron tool, unlimited money glitch for free, no need to ever build blacksmith building:(
also what are the metrics for stone tool, how long they last compared to iron tool before they break and do they imcrease productivity at the same level as a iron? …so many questions, so little answers:D
(also because that word “Make” in it the text spills into a tab texture and it looks broken and unclean, would drop that word)


    also when citizens pick the stone tool its writen in their status they are holding steel tool:D oopsie:D

     Tom Sawyer

    This mod was only made to still have the option after stone tools got removed from the main mod. It’s kind of balanced because stone tool durability is only 8 compared to 100 or 200. They break extremely fast but it still felt like no need to build up the iron chain. In vanilla it appears as “steal tool” in citizen window because that’s how vanilla calls all other tools.

    In general, all these separate mods were made because people asked for it as just some building option or it was a preview of new content and meant to be added to the North mod. They are not balanced anyway because people add them to vanilla, CC, Megamod or another mod mix. To have it consistent and balanced you should try the main mod.


    since “write to tom” icon does not work, i will leave this essay here then sry:D ..yeah just tried it out more and realized they rly break so fast its more efficient to let citizens without any tools, it really takes few seconds for them to break like u said, i looked into modding and its not that easy as i was hoping for:D …would it be possible to change stone tools price down to 3 and duration from 8 to 25 so they would actually made any sense for early to mid game? was just wondering how such slight metrics change might be time consuming? (btw yes, when i get bored with vanilla/north hybrid i will try propper full clean north version too, but not yet)


Clay will never arrive by boat and cant even be ordered, that comodity simply does not exist, therefore in vanila u can never build Nordic Tailor Shop, therefore this standalone mod download here is useless:/ any chance of fixing it pelase?

     Tom Sawyer

    It was probably made as a preview for an older north version and doesn’t properly work in vanilla. Can be fixed for sure.


    ok thanks, i will be impatiently w8ting for a clay fix=)


    You can download Kid’s Tiny Builders mod at There is a tiny clay pit. Then you can use some of Tom’s stand alone mods in the vanilla game that need clay.


in vanila dairy hut standalone mod, milk costs 2, butter 3, salt 8, and cheese 4, that makes no sense at all, dairy hut can only lose money, resources and time, no matter what u do with it, could you please look into it?


    ahh i now noticed its not 1:1 ratio, could you please tell me how much butter u create from 1 milk unit?

     Tom Sawyer

    It’s 22-24 from 16 milk, just like Skyr in the North. I guess I added butter there as a more common dairy thing for vanilla but did not add a wiki term.


    thanks!:) btw whats the ratio of Salt+Milk=Cheese? I could not find it anywhere here.

     Tom Sawyer

    Output: 28 – 32 from 16 milk and 1 salt


@Tom Sawyer.I would like to be a member of the Great Hall if you let me – I’m still trying to donate – but I have a problem with that – I click on the red heart – this is filled in by my wife as she has a Visa card – that’s the only way I can give – and still declines the order – just informs that should i try later, maybe i live in Poland?
I am asking for a code for a new thread – Mission: Crash-Landing.


hello, will kid’s mod tiny smoke work with north7?
I like the idea of less smoke for better visibility, but no smoke at all seems too unrealistic for me personally…
thank you!

     Tom Sawyer

    In North7 smoke is much lighter than in vanilla and houses have a special light smoke that will not be overwritten by Kid’s mod. I would try if it looks nice for you and if not to load Kid’s smoke mod on top. It will turn red but will not cause trouble.

Catch them All!

I am Grateful Tom Sawyer – came looking for the mods that kick of iron production in The North – ie., the clay furnace, and little clay quarry because they are truly missed when starting my wicked big mod salad Banishings.
