Colonial Charter: Journey (1.71)

Banished Megamod. A complete gameplay expansion. For support, feedback and more mods visit us online at

Disable/Delete any previous version of Colonial Charter, enable Colonial Charter Journey in the mod menu.

CC: Journey does require a new game.

Full Changelog:
To see what's new and changed, visit us online at blackliquidsoftware[].

Journey reflects a maturation of development of the Colonial Charter mod for Banished Game. Unlike in previous versions where we overhauled production and resources, with Journey you have more access to new buildings that utilise the existing chains. Many of the existing buildings have been revamped or replaced in entirety.

In CC: Journey you'll have an opportunity to build a truly rustic themed settlement in entirety, or using the new city wall kit and related new buildings you can build your own mini empire. We have added in all new pine tree models to the game as well as some new map types to expand the flavour of Colonial Charter. New start conditions are available that offer a variety of new challenges. We also remastered the forest audio, to allow a more natural, serene atmosphere.

We hope you'll enjoy playing Colonial Charter 1.7 - as usual, it was a lot of hard work involving many hours of creation and testing. Easily our most challenging mod to date. Friends and family were ignored for prolonged periods of "One... More... Turn..." as well as "I think this would look good... what happens if we add this new feature?". We hope to put the same amount of distance between you and your loved ones, for all the right reasons of course! :)

As loads of others have said, my game now wont load and keeps crashing. #I'm in the beta version and this hasnt seemed to have helped at all. Its a shame because when i do get the mod working its amazing but sadly it crashes all the time now

@[PUG] Carson You can opt out for the beta 1.0.7 via steam options...i tried loading ONLY this Colonial Charter mod..still error to desktop and black screen with a windows sound of error...if you upgraded this game to beta 1.0.7...i think many other little mods you have will not work...
Maybe somebody should post if they are on beta 1.0.7 with this mod working or the the new version of the mod from the forum that @[PUG] Carson said..

To get the mod working, google Colonial Charter 1.0.7 and go to the mod forums, create an account and download the newest version, then drag it into the WinData folder in the games files. Enable the mod in game, close and reload. It takes a minute or two of blackscreen until the mod loads, so don't freak out if it doesn't load in instantly.

The reason the mod isn't working is that this mod is made for version 1.0.6, the last version of the game is 1.0.7, and there is no way to revert the game version that I know of.

I am also having the problem where the game never loads and stays on a black screen instead.
Blueeth Oct 15 @ 2:12am 
I am having the same problem as others have mentioned, after enabling the mod and restarting the menu, it just goes to black instead. This is the only mod I have installed.

Taken from:
Crash dump looks like its dying starting up DX11 - you can force the game into DX9 mode with some registry editing, if you're comfortable with that. (regedit.exe)

If you navigate to, (or you might have to add)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Shining Rock Software LLC\Banished

Then add a new string value (not integer!)
name: VideoInterface
value: 0

The game should then try to start in DX9 mode first.

Edit: You can accomplish the same thing by renaming or deleting the VideoDX11-x32.dll or VideoDX11-x64.dll to something else and then starting the game.


Windows Key + R Key -> write regedit->hit Enter->navigate to, (or you might have to add)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Shining Rock Software LLC\Banished->right click ->new->String value->name: VideoInterface -> value data: 0

@dwobwinkle that can't be done. The developer only just expanded the number of resource groups. So what you have is the most. Modders can't create more categories in the game's code.

So this is the only Mod I have installed for the game, and I even tried unintalling it from the game, but no matter what, I get this message "A Fatal access violation has occured in Runtime-steam-x64.dlll and the game cannot continue! A crash dump has been saved to..." Blah blah blah. Anyone have any ideas how I can make this stop happening and get the game to run?
