The North is an expansion for the city building and survival game Banished. It includes a new landscape with realistic climate and sun pitches, Nordic ambient sounds, wild animals and resources, a whole set of buildings in old Nordic style, new production chains, a reworked trading system and many small changes to create a new game experience for banished people. It also offers start conditions for different play styles and levels of difficulty from easy to very challenging. A focus is on realism and survival.

To install this mod, copy the pkm file to your Banished windata directory. If you purchased the game on Steam, it is located in Steam\SteamApps\common\Banished.
Start Banished and open your mod list. Enable the North and place it on top to adapt buildings and resources of recommended mods to the Nordic economy. Red markings only point to overwritten files and do not mean a real conflict in this case. After changing your mod list please always exit and restart Banished to clean up the game from disabled mods. It avoids crashes when auto saving or quitting later.
The North is changing the whole game and cannot work properly with other main mods. They overwrite each other and it will not be a consistent result. It is recommended to play the Nordic scenario standalone or together with compatible mods.
This mod requires Banished 1.0.7. If you still use an older version of the game please update first.
ADD-ONs and TRANSLATIONS
You can optionally use these add-ons and translations. They are separate mod file and have to be copied into your windata folder as well. Translations always have to be placed above the main mod to overwrite strings and textures. They also can be enabled/disabled in a running game to switch between languages.
