Looks great to me! Need two Overseers to accept.
Good work and great planning, you’ve got a layout map, ingame guide and a spreadsheet, nice. Accepted as long as you promise not to make the pallisade higher than 3-4 blocks!
Some name suggestions:
Westwurth (western village)
Helmseatun (Helm’s river-town)
Hammtun (town by the water-meadow)
Aldorstowe (Aldor’s meeting-place - Aldor was a king of Rohan who conquered land to the west of the Isen, and would probably have had a base of operations in the Westfold)
Looks good to me as well, go for it.
Aldorstowe is now open (partly)
We want the lowclass houses done first so those are the only ones open to build at the moments.
Read the guide and look at the example house for HIP styled roofs. We DONT want people fucking about discovering the style on their own so please go look at the guide before you start working on a house.
Every house has been planned out in brown wool so those are the houses we want done for now. Follow the instructions some houses might have to. For the one who will be claiming the tanner (if we didnt claim it for ourselfs already, there is a good example of a tannerpit in dale please take a look at that if its the first tanner you are making.
We hope people come out and help in this diagonal hell so that we can quickly make the step to the more exciting higher class houses wich will opened in the near future
If you dont like the village feel free to fuck off

Don’t put the limepit in the village. If anything it should be closer to the mountains/in an area of cleared out forest, where the geology is actually limestone.
Regarding the chat in discord building channel various things will be changed in the plan
Both of these will be further away from aldorstowe than now but will still be part of the same project
There has ben a lot of progress cetrainly more than i expected. Only two low-class houses are unlcaimed at the moment wich makes it only a total of three low-class houses that still need to be finished. The mid-class houses will open as soon as the mid-class example house is done (wich will be pretty soon)
A special thanks to the following people for their help so far.
And once more a special thanks to @Fronacen for willing to do the lime-pits part of this project
@Beathaven for making the stables (WIP)
Mid-class house are now open
just build them please
What’s left in this village?
Not too much. A little bit of grass removal behind the longhouse and making it look like a paddock, fixing the entrances, touching up the stone walls, making a public privy, adding some wagons and carts. Small stuff really.
I forgot. Building a limepit/tanner area. thats outside the village but part of the project.
Cool, would be good to see it done this week.
the village proper is ready for initial inspection. there is a lime pit outside the walls that i will be attending to
Hey Chev and Pop,
Just went over the village and it think it looks very good overall.
I think there is too much stone / too many walls. I would opt for a more defendable, reinforced core, marked in blue. Remove the walls marked in red or turn them into, for example, hedges. Especially in the top part of the picture. These thick walls are only protecting two houses and some fields, one house is even under construction. If you guys remove these walls, it makes more sense with the house that is under construction as well.
Next thing is, there are some empty spots scattered around the village. Land protected by walls would be valuable real estate and the villagers would waste as little as possible. A cart, some crates and a shack would fill these spots nicely.
I feel that the sides of your houses can use some detail. This does not have to be a huge amount of work. Adding a beam going across and some berries bushes at the foundation can improve your houses significantly.
If anything is unclear, feel free to send me a discord PM.
@Fornad The blue is what Pop originally had and we were talked into expanding the walls. Before i redo the original walls i want to make sure everyone agrees with Beat about closing them in.
I agree with him yeah
I will probably get back active on this project as i got one more night in the US before i return. (monday) So i will help chev out ofc and if i would take a guess get everything done halfway trough next week.
