i click on picture and get a page with it the same size with THUMBNAIL and SCREENSHOT (on far right) as options.. thumbnail reduces to a thumbnail, and screenshot just shows all the screenshots. No original option.. hmm.. using Chrome. Dont worry about it.. Probably me just missing something.

Matt thanks for the tip..

Matt thanks for the tip.. increasing the baking sets has helped a great deal.. I don't know why but i was stuck (in head and in game) that 2 ovens and tables was enough, i pumped it to 4 and it was a complete change...Simple and now it seems quite obvious but I dodnt do it till you mentioned it.. 15 -20 people, 2 ovens.. seems legit to me.. I think that got me over a hump i have had.. Now to do some serious layout planning.. looking at your picture ( its to small!!!) I can see I need way more planning then im putting in.. those extra steps are killing me ( which I knew) but I do keep it pretty bunched so figured it wasnt hurting me to bad.. but I think it is...

Ok sorry for Bioshock Hijack..

i know its very important to set the gathering and stockpiles stuff.. but I must not be grasping it quite right yet.. Early in game turning BONES off is a huge deal.. (dang fools running across map to pick up som pig who was ate by a man eating trap was burning me bad on people count).. I tend to build 2-3 3X3 or 4X4 wheat fields to start, leaving room to expand them later.. My bakery is always next to my fields ( i try to get 2 rows 10-16 trees each of apples and pears close to it to, again with room to expand). Food is just simply hard to plan out.. I have never went past two ovens and mills, that may be my bottle neck.

Housing, how do you do it? I tend to build next to a large hill and go undergorund (saves wall building time and my questions in teh TOWNS forums seem to confirm there is no downside ( or wasnt 2-3 months ago)..

Towns

In the last patch they added the option to put your workers into groups and control what jobs they do. I also find it critical to be careful about your stockpiles--don't have more than you need and don't leave them wide open. Only let stuff go in that won't endanger the townies to collect. So, don't create a huge stockpile and have your guys going down to uncleared dungeons to collect gels and ITEs (you can always do this after the dungeon is clear).

Food is a big challenge. I find that I have to set the wheat and flour collecting up to 10 or 15. They never manage to get all 15, but enough to keep the bakeries going. You need a big bakery with 4-5 ovens and baking tables. Also, HUGE, have everything centralized. Don't have your wheat fields far away from the bakery, or multiple bakeries, etc. Another mistake I made was not having enough flour mills. It seems you need at least one mill per 4-5 wheat fields (maybe more).

My current town is about 150. I could go higher but see no reason to at this point.

Saints ROW 3 was video game

Saints ROW 3 was video game excess in a massively fun way.. (just a note if you don't have Just Cause 2, pick it up on steam on one of these $5 days.. play alot the same but without the cartoon fun). I would easily recommend Saints Row 3 to anybody at the cheap prices its at now..

Towns= evil for people like me.. I can play it for days.. there is so much great about it.. and some simple stuff the devs should fix. They keep adding time sinks when there is broken stuff that needs attention. ROOFS!!!!!! and now we need to feed the stock? my guys couldn't keep themselves fed, let alone cows and pigs .. I hate how the game is so random on some resources.. IRON.. you can really get behind on some stuff if you dont hit some soon.
How are you on town populations? I can build to 20-30 and then food gets to be a 24/7 thing.. clearing dungeons and such is painfully slow.. my guys run down, grab a slime and drop it and run back up for food. YOU HAVE THE SLIME, carry it back on the way to food!!!!! And i have built up to roast and such that do max filling..I really like the game but it needs some tweeks.. better ROOF building.. I would like to see the food thing tweeked.. but.. even so I love it..

LOL: i was a huge player .. got out of it with the intensely bad MatchMakin.. noob getting stomped so hard they would never play again.. etc.. the game is full of great players who AFK to die and lower there ranking to get azz stomping match with noobs.. so you play a AFK (boring) or get a excellent player who has lowered his rank to utterly destory you.. about 1/2 the time.. the other half you get a good match. I highly recommend DOTA2 (same game just enhanced) VALVE does stuff right.. either is fine.. but DOTA2 is growing while LOL is pretty stagnant (and said to be slowly shrinking in player base.. and as new player it far less friendly) of course if family plays.. decision made. (i have several steam invites if you need one for DOTA2).. I started a thread here on getting back into it.. unfortantly I was struck by GOOD GAME GLUT! and it was put on the back burner.. From my understding the DOTA style games are the most played of any online now.. and so many of them.. LOL DOTA2, Smite (smite is a 3rd person view and is actually a nice twist on it too)..

oh ya Dont Starve.. I love the steady updates..I consider it a 2d minecraft. but the more I play the more I prefer it.. more game then Minecraft..

Dishonered.. i miss Thief and this was a closer game then Assassins creed.. and i love the steampunk like world. its got some of the same issues as most FPS melee games have.. so-so melee combat.. its just not "feeling" like it.. and the ranged stuff is nice.. but way to scarce..
