Re: Newbie With NO Experience Questions

Hello Old Fuelwood.

I think you need to drive to the work site and then when your about to start loading, you need to reverse your driving direction. At that point the cab swings round and you / the driver will track the crane grab

Hope that solves your issue :hi:

Re: MOD CONTEST MODS ARE ONLINE !

Anyone else having issues getting the Unimog mod to show up in game? I can install it but it doesn't show up on the mods screen just before you launch a game or in the store once you're in game. As I've just been playing around with the Syn trac thanks to the tip for increasing my graphics settings...

Re: Happy Fourth of July

The actual American War of Independence, or American Revolutionary War started on the 19th of April 1975, but ended in the Treaty of Paris on the 3rd of September 1783, where various things were agreed and England hoped to have increased trading opportunity. So basically back to money again. hhmm.....

Re: Happy Fourth of July

Happy fourth! Wonder what the British think of this day? Actually... not a lot... No disrespect intended of course, but it doesn't really come up. We may see some news coverage of your President if he's done something specific (but that would be on our news on the 5th). We have adopted some other n...

Re: Detailed Anderson DLC Sneak Peek Video

Thanks for that! It'll add some nice options to my farming. A little less happy with the logging trailer as I was hoping it would have the optional winch on the crane arm. When Giants released the equipment list I watched some videos, just to get a feel for what we might expect. The logging loader v...

Re: log lengths and sell price

I was cutting down a few trees to clear some space for some animals and I made a note of a few prices. I was only using a chainsaw and a tape measure mod for the PC, so perhaps not a true size comparison but I found that 10m earned 1292 Cr. The same relative sized tree cut to 2 lengths at 5m earned ...

Re: Using the HAND icon

I've not used the extra strength mod but I find that if I'm carefull I can load up before giving them a gentle nudge from the end of the trailer.

It does however get a bit tricky if you try to unload using the bag lifter with its pallet straps though :hmm:

Re: Repair question

I too realised that going sideways with dropping bits off at either end was the right way, but I also put a pressure washer at one side so I give everything a good clean before I fix it.

Re: Missing Money

I don't know if the cost in real life is that high, but I do know that many hire companies will have a day rate and delivery costs for a machine. If you sign a contract for an extended hire such as weekly or monthly then you would get a reduction in the day rate. I have a little way to soften the bl...

Re: Bale physics?

I had the same thing happen with the same JCB tractor. I've not tried it with any other tractors but I had the same twisting, and catapulting effect. I managed to put two bales down, then when I refolded the empty carrier, the two bales re attached despite them being on the other side of the farm ya...

Re: FS19 pre order

I don't buy games like I used to, but I've pre-ordered the FS19 collectors edition which comes with the various bits n bobs on offer but also the normal mahindra side by side and a farm sim branded baseball cap! I'll be honest, I'm not likely to wear the hat, or the beanie that is the collectors edi...

Re: Show your simulator

I'm feeling decidedly small right now as I'm on a PC version with only a 23" monitor but I'm sitting close enough that it's not exactly small.

Re: How did the farmer find his wife?

There was a man who had grown up with liking tractors his whole life, wallpaper on the walls as a child led to reading magazines as a young man. He'd play farming games in the evenings, and collect various books and models as and when he could, but he never actually got close to evening sitting in a...

Re: Why Farming Simulator?

I just happened to see an online vid of the wood harvester in FS15 and decided I had to have a go and the rest is history. I used to play a lot of games of all manner of types. Driving and shooting stuff, but they kept getting harder and harder and I found it wasn't relaxing any more, whereas I can ...
