Minecolony is based on the game Anno 1602. MineColony gives you the ability to add 5 extra worker mobs, a Delivery Boy, a Miner,a Builder, a Lumberjack and a Farmer. It also creates another mob called the Settler. This is the basic unit in this mod.
Bugs and Incompatibilities
The forked version (available here: ) uses ModLoader and does not suffer the same compatibility problems and works with the aforementioned mods.
Occasionally the Builder will not do anything, even if you make a house upgrade sign. Well, there is a way to fix this, by just killing the builder, and letting a new unemployed person take his place, which usually solves the problem.
At times the Miner can cause crashes due to what appears to be something wrong with his texture. This either has to do with the death of the miner, or when the miner enters water. So be careful when using this one!
It also seems that the Builder's schematics for the Lumberjack's 3rd/4th house upgrade is glitched, making the Builder stay in his house and say something about the schematics being wrong.
-different kinds of workers (lumberjack, miner, farmer, builder, delivery man, baker)
-basic units - citizens. They occupy jobs and become workers
-different level of tools impacts the efficiency of work
-when the tool wears out, worker searches his chest for the kind of tool he uses (don't forget to supply lumberjack with axes and miner with pickaxe and shovel)
-You can change worker's current tool by dropping it next to them
-workers don't work during night
-workers tell you why they're not working when you get close to them
-build houses, decrease taxes and make food for your people to improve their mood
-keep workers at work by paying them their salary
-use golden scepter on the people to ask them to follow you
-use caliper to measure the distance between houses
-use bank to make and convert money
-use town hall to see overall information about You colony, tips, balance and more
-configure mod options in a .property file
A Supply Ship is the first thing you will need as it will give you a Town Hall Chest. If you don't have a Town Hall Chest, you will not be able to place anything else unless you have placed this. To craft a Supply Ship, you will need to craft five boats. Then, arrange the five boats into a boat crafting recipe (pretend the boats are wood planks) and you'll get a Supply Ship. The recipe below, doesn't work because you can only get a Town Hall Chest from a Supply Ship.
|Ingredients||Input » Output||Description|
|Boats||Creates the Supply Ship if placed near an ocean or a huge lake.|
You create workers by placing special worker Chests in the world. Once a chest is placed, a settler Mob is created.
A helper will only work if they have the appropriate tools in their chests, and it is daytime. They communicate their needs to you by heading back to their chests and staying there. When you are close enough the Helper will communicate using the text box. For Example the builder will say out of Cobble 121. The 121 means how much of the item the helper needs. A helper that is sleeping for the night would have a sign saying "Sleeping" beside them. Likewise if a helper is out of tools.

How to use your own schematics in game. A1= turn on use player schematics in the settings
This will allow you to use your own schematics, don't put them in the schematics folder this is not where they go.(needs editing from someone more experienced.) Forge, and Quarry are not craftable or available in the current game.
