Re: Brand equipment

I wish I could share more but I can't. Then you are probably sharing too much already... Else, there would have likely been a public announcement from Giants and/or JD sharing the information you offer, or you would have been granted permission to provide some firm evidence. Are you sure you aren't...

Re: Narrow hub mounted duals

Consider it one of the many compromises that need to be made in such a game... It's all about scope/time/resources, all of which are finite.

Re: Some more mod Ideas for the PS4 and XBOX consoles

You are not getting "grief", what you are getting is a request to invest a little more effort than wanton "spitballing", especially given that you acknowledge the time/effort required to implement. The over-riding issue is that you are not the only one with "good ideas", and there continues to be a ...

Re: Hello! new asap list is here

It also helps to actually spend some time/effort outlining why the investment of someone else's time/effort is a worthwhile endeavour. Try to focus on what new functionality/gameplay elements such a mod would address, such as what gap it might address. Simply saying something like "I want a REAL tru...

Re: filling flow

Not sure you can adjust this for the default maps. For mod maps, it is in one of the map XMLs (placeables, iirc) and the variable is something along the lines of "fillrate" or "overload". Been awhile since I've been in FS17, and away from home at the moment.

Re: Some more mod Ideas for the PS4 and XBOX consoles

Hi Majorguns,

What are you willing to contribute to the effort, other than pretty much asking someone else to spend their own time and effort to appease you? Especially the last one... Have you researched what it actually takes to do any of the things you are asking others to do on your behalf?

Re: New mod ideas Grimme equipment

... as Grimme are all ready in game I don’t think license is a issue... Consider that the self-propelled Grimme potato harvester has been updated to a newer RL model for FS19 (from that which was present in FS15 and 17) suggests that there very well could be a license issue - i.e. Grimme wanted the...

Re: Hey Modders I would like to know if you can add more pickup trucks and add fifth wheel hitches and trailers thx

Likewise, maybe some of those posting requests should invest the effort to determine if the request has been made previously, and if so, accept that it hasn't been taken up for one reason or another? This isn't (in my opinion) a matter of simply bombarding the same request over and over again, aka "...

As the topic of licensing comes up again, I'll link the post I did up a while ago regarding this very topic: https://forum.giants-software.com/viewtopic.php?f=963&t=143793 Even if there was no cost incurred by Giants, it still does not necessarily translate into "do whatever you want with our IP", a...

Re: More Field Stages

Personally, I feel like GIANTS has struck a good balance between complexity and progression. Too many field states, and you might turn away some people who just can't be bothered with "yet another" pass with "miscellaneous implement". The other element becomes the additional burden on the back-end p...

Re: [FS19] Giants Mods this week

Also potential licensing issues, where JD may not be supportive of their older stock appearing in-game next to their (and their competitors) newer stock.

Re: Explanation for console modding restrictions?

I'll take a crack at it :) External scripts are just that - scripts/programming instructions/logic rules that are external to the base game (i.e. not included with the base code). The reason they are not typically entertained by Consoles is because they can create unpredictable behaviour due to the ...

Re: Mod ideas for a more realistic authentic farm life

I don't think the intention is to fully emulate the entire spectrum of the farming experience, but rather a subset focusing on the elements perceived to be the most "entertaining" to the broader audience... I think some believe this game is supposed to be a "nostalgia satisfier", not something I agr...

Re: Log length

What is the wood payout rate and ratio set to in Grizzly Mountain (since it is a custom map)? What did you to to ensure consistency in your analysis (did you cut the exact same tree the exact same way, just adjusting the lengths)? Did you cut down one big tree and cut it into 3 pieces of different l...
