1.0.7 Released

13th September 2017

Version 1.0.7 is now live on Steam and Humble, and should soon be available on GOG.com shortly.

Steam should auto-update the game, otherwise you'll have to download the new version from your purchase location. If you bought the game from the Humble Store or from Shining Rock Software, you can download the latest version using the link you originally received to download the game. If you no longer have the email, you can get it resent using this tool: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender

As always, Email support (at) shiningrocksoftware (dot) com if you have any issues.

This will likely be the last update of Banished, except for any major bug fixes. The OSX and Linux versions development has stopped, and won't be released. Going forward I'll be focusing on new games and projects.

ModKit & Downloads

For the Mod Kit, here's the new download. This Mod Kit should build mods created with the beta version with no changes.

BanishedKit_1.0.7.170910.zip

You should download the full new version of the game, but if you want to patch version 1.0.6 you can use this patch.

BanishedPatch_1.0.6_To_1.0.7.170910.zip

Note that you need to apply the patch to version 1.0.6. Previous versions of the game won't work with this patch. Once downloaded, just unzip the archive into the folder where you have Banished installed. This is usually C:\Program Files\Shining Rock Software\Banished\. Please be sure to run the .exe's that are in the archive - some distributions have the .exe named differently.

1.0.7 Beta Version 3

12th June 2017

Here's the last version of the 1.0.7 beta for the modding community. Should all go well with this build, I'll release it as non-beta, allowing the mods to be uploaded to Steam Workshop. If you use this modkit and build, please let me know how they work out. If it's working perfectly I'd like to hear about it too. Thoughts, bugs, crashes, etc. Email support (at) shiningrocksoftware (dot) com

Changes

First, the debug menu has changed so that new custom resource types can be added to storage. As always, you'll need to mod the game to enable the debug menu.

Also, a few crash bugs have been fixed so that buildings can require more than 3 resources to build. There's also a new example in the mod kit and documentation that gives an overview how to do so.

1.0.7 Beta Version 2

21st March 2017

Here's a new version of the 1.0.7 beta for the modding community. There weren't too many bugs reported so far, so hopefully this will be the last test before an official version.

If you use these, please let me know how they work out. If it's working perfectly I'd like to hear about it too. Thoughts, bugs, crashes, etc. Email support (at) shiningrocksoftware (dot) com

Changes

  • -This build adds an example to the mod kit so that modders can add custom resources to the auto purchase section of the Trading Post. I overlooked this in the first beta. See the Readme.html for details.
  • -This build fixes a potential crash when the user interface scale is not 100% and clicking on a dialog that is over a selectable building.

Downloads

Without further ado, here's the beta mod kit:

BanishedKit_1.0.7.170320.Beta.zip

Here's a patch for 1.0.6 to 1.0.7.170320 Beta

Once downloaded, just unzip the archive into the folder where you have Banished installed. This is usually C:\Program Files\Shining Rock Software\Banished\.
