Re: Advantages Of Bailing?

If the mass density of loose straw/hay is unrealistically high, then loose straw/hay will fill a volume comparable to the baled material. In that case there probably is no advantage of baling, except realism. As an experiment I suggest making a straw bale of a known volume. Then cut it open and col...

Re: Custom Weather & GEO mod

That is correct Seasons will default to add-on GEO mod if it is activated on the save game. Although be wise about when you activate this GEO as it can affect multiple things. Oh and only ever use one GEO at a time. GEOS can change the general weather conditions, temp, sun rise/set timings, % chance...

Re: ModContest results

I would like to see the voting results in the mod listings. It would be interesting to see number of votes and the scores. Just as a comparative to see how well various mods that we might have voted for ended up.

Re: Seasons and animals

This is going to take some experimentation as there are many factors that go into the consumption of food with seasons. In 17 it was a simple calculation each cow consumed X amount of food in Spring and Y amount in Summer, Z amount in Autumn and Q amount in Winter so it was simple math to calculate ...

Re: Seasons and LS-modcompany mods

As an update I tossed in the animal screen extension last night. worked great. I could buy 40 cows very easy and it showed 40/125 to that mod is a great way to see how many animals you have in any given pen.

Re: Seasons, soil temperature, and germination

As Guil pointed out in Seasons 19 there are more factors to base planting on. First, what is the ground temp. How likely is the ground temp to get to the minimum threshold during the planting schedule. Germination will not occur until the ground temp is at least the minimum and it is still within th...

Re: Some tips on Seasons crop rotation - Possible spoilers

Some food for thought related to starting a map. On Ravenport on New Farmer all of your starting fields are the equivalent to a blank slate. All of them show up as Fallow for the past two cycles. No mater what you put in the fields the first time around you will get a bonus for them being Fallow the...

Re: Seasons and LS-modcompany mods

Personally I have not tested them. The one that adds water should be fine. not sure about the water added to chickens.

Re: Seasons 19 WIP Updates (PC release 24/07)

Snow was mild in the video like in real live every snow fall is not the same. There is light rain, heavy rain and flat out thunderstorms just like light, medium and high winds your going to experience different levels of snow fall.

Re: Seasons 19 WIP Updates (PC release 24/07)

So since you will launch a video wed, I assume we can rule out that the mod will be available 00:01 and also that daytime(europe) gaming with seasons is out. Im just speculating🤠 I plan to release a video each day this week. If time can allow of course between my day job and family and other obliga...

Re: Seasons 19 WIP Updates (PC release 24/07)

FYI, today and tomorrows video was recorded before the first video was released so I wont be able to clarify anything in them. But I did mis-speak a little bit on the animals at the end. There will be an animal specific video most likely for Wed release. In the video for tomorrow I talk briefly abou...

Re: fs19 becoming too realistic?

There are players who are NOT playing FS19 because they feel it it NOT realistic enough. Missing things like seasons, gear box, drive control, more realistic just to name a few are what have kept folks disgruntled over FS19 as compared to what they feel are more realistic FS17 play styles.

Re: Vote is Modcontest

I'm still trying to figure out what "Vote is modcontest" means ? Just like the current mods in the mod hub. In FS17 there was a special section of the modhub for contest mods. then we could rank 1-5 stars each mod just like we can now with other mods. That is what is meant by vote. You rank the mod...

Re: Welker Farms Missing Buildings on ps4

There are maps with custom animal areas that are on the map in New Farmer and not on the map in the other mods that players can chose to put down or use in game or some other modded animal zone.

Re: Vote is Modcontest

Gotcha, I know from the 17 mod contest there was some confusion with voting. I know some folks voted for the mod they thought was the best in each category and didn't vote for anything else. What I plan on doing is to cover the mod contest with comments that players should rank each mod on its own 1...
