Re: The Super Truck

That kind of hitch on a truck is normal. Trucks haul all kinds of things. Trailers of all sorts, bale trailers hauling square and round a like. Trailers that could have a baler on top of it. The idea of a farmer hooking a baler up to his truck to haul it to the shop or between fields is not odd at a...

Re: Hay

I haven't made had in close to 30 years but when we did this in the mid atlantic area of the US we used a haybine or diskbine to cut the alfalfa or timothy and let it sit a day or so as the first post said. then we would use a NH bar rake to roll the drying hay over so the bottom was now on the top ...

Re: Milking Xbox players

The prices seem in line with the US xbox store after factoring in currency conversion. The price for base is higher than the steam price but I have to wonder how much of that is MS adding their share to each purchase. Also Giants uses Focus Interactive as the distribution partner so im sure Focus ge...

Re: [Dev-Blog] New Mission System

Oh that sounds like a not so fun way to sort them. What if a player wanted to find a mission on say field 45 and the map had 98 fields and most where not player owned. Or if they where looking to do a plowing mission only. Maybe its not to late to be able to sort missions based on criteria. field nu...

Re: [Dev-Blog] New Mission System

Does that mean that this part of the missionsystem has changed as well? In FS 17 you dont have to unload the harvester, do you have to unload in fs19? And the trailer, do you have to empty that is a specific place? That would be a great new system aswell *thumbsup* The mission text says you have to...

Re: Pickup mod on pc

So I had the same issue a while back and communicate regularly with the modder who did these trucks. When I asked him about it he gave me an explanation around the fuel triggers in the game and how mods must register their own fuel trigger. It was a long and technical explanation which i can not giv...

Re: Steering wheel not working correctly

If you mean holding the brake causes you to go into reverse then this is normal behavior for FS. The brake is just an extension of the D key for keyboard driving or what ever backwards/slow down is on controller. If your using a PC you need a mod called drive control which will enable you to shift i...

Re: Giants and Case IH

I would like to see american versions of the tractor models that are available here in the states. I do not get hung up on using tractors and implements with European warning markers and the like but it would be nice especially if there is an american map in the base game to give the option in the s...

Re: How many animals are you keeping using seasons mod?

What I was getting at is mostly time spent feeding vs working the fields and the time one has to work the fields. With 3 day seasons you have at most at 1X speed 72 hours of spring, summer, autumn to prepair fields and harvest and feed your animals while at the same time they need the most every 3 d...

Re: How many animals are you keeping using seasons mod?

One thing to note on this question is the season length. The longer your seasons play the easier it is to keep larger numbers of animals. This is because of how seasons works on the back end. Seasons normalizes the amount animals need for a year so if you play 3 or 24 day seasons for example you wil...
