I loaded “The North” mod (with no other mods). Game was working great (great mod by the way). Decided to try starting with the builder. Built a pasture for the cattle. No worker will work there. Restarted the game and the same thing happens with the farmer and the villager, for all animals.
Thanks and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi and welcome! You can increase the workers in this pasture from 0 to 1. With the arrows left to the total number of workers. It was indeed a bit confusing and unnecessary in this version. In North7 all pastures start with 1 default herdsman.
Hi, tried to increase the workers in the pasture ui from zero to one and then up to the maximum number of labourers, with no change. Basically put all the labourers in, but all had question marks above their heads and still no change.
I started a game earlier and it worked perfectly. Then all of a sudden it doesnt. And in my saved games it also works.
Went back to vanilla Banished and it works fine.
Believe me when I say that all the weird things happen to me. lol
No, I meant to increase the workers in the pasture clicking the buttons left to the total workers. There are 2 arrows to increase them, left of this pasture and right in total of the town. You probably only increased the total number of herdsman but they are not assigned to a pasture and that’s why asking for jobs. :)
My cattle stopped reproducing, in my small herd of 8. Then after a few years one would die each year until they were all gone, which was okay as I bought the black and white milk cows from the trader and they make a lot more milk lol. Do the animals have a gender and was I just unlucky that eventually all my cattle were only one gender? I’ve never seen that happen before in a game, maybe this is a Banished general thing?
Technically they don’t have a gender and if you have only a single cow, it just clones itself right on the meadow.^^ But they don’t get offspring without a herdsman working in this pasture and will die out at some point. Cows and sheep can be managed with a temporary worker while chickens die pretty fast.
I thought so about the gender fluid animals lol, that is why I was so surprised. I always have a herdsman tending each group of animals full time, including these suicidal asexual cattle, really strange to watch them die out like that, a bit creepy haha. At least the new milk cows are producing like crazy.
