Re: Ever been addicted to a certain crop?(no drugs allowed)

I don't have an addiction. Instead it's more accurate to say I have an aversion to sugar beet and potatoes. I did them both as contracts and after all those hours of mind numbing boredom I swore "never again". The thing is I wouldn't mind it so much if the harvesters weren't so expensive and had a l...

Re: Ravensport - are Giants making a statement?

I very much doubt there is any political reason behind having all the rubbish scattered around the Ravenport map. Giants devs don't do things like that on purpose and would probably feel really upset if they thought they offended anyone. In all likelihood the map designer was just looking for the qu...

Re: Is anyone still playing On FS17?

I've put about 150 hours into FS19 so far and today I decided to load up FS17 today just to refresh my memory. Another reason for this decision to play FS17 was that I've never really had enough time to justify using the seasons mod, in one sense because I thought I'd be bored with all the downtime,...

Felsbrunn Field Overlap

Platform: PC-Steam. Map: Felsbrunn Issue: It is possible when working in Field 20 to affect Field 19 without owning that field. I first noticed this problem when using the reset roller and was able to remove a large section of the neighbouring non-owned field. In addition Field 20 can also be affect...

Re: Hired help 100 times better than fs17(consoles)

I wouldn't like to put a percentage on it but in general I've found the hired help are a bit more capable than FS17. I was impressed when a particular worker realised it couldn't get over a hilly part of the edge of the field so it reversed and went around. Certain combinations of equipment especial...

Re: Weeds appearing suddenly

Same here (appeared overnight across the entire map) - was rather annoying. Surely the weeds should manifest themselves in some way prior to that so you could deal with them? I like the added dimension they offer as I became a convert to the 3 fertilisation stages in 17 when Seasons came out but in...

Re: Significant Lighting Changes in Vehicles

That's probably a good idea. Better to put up with occasional weird lighting than jinxing the G27. :)

Re: Getting started is slow...

I'm playing on Farm Manager and it does feel a lot slower to progress in terms of being able to afford new machinery and buying new fields. I think it's probably due to the lack of get rich quick options, no more cutting down a tree and pushing into the pond (was that FS15?) and being rewarded with ...

Re: Significant Lighting Changes in Vehicles

I remember something similar happening when I played the game on release day (Steam version). The cab interiors seemed brighter and sometimes there was almost a white out effect depending on the weather. I just put it down to some bug with the lighting. I can't remember which vehicles had the issue ...

Re: The opinion of a real farmer

Definitely reshade judging by the videos because it has that same annoying bloom whenever you're in the map or menus.

Re: Weeds appearing suddenly

I had to switch the weeds off since they were multiplying like Triffids and taking over Felsbrunn. The local farmers just couldn't deal with them. In all seriousness the randomness was annoying and on more than one occasion I got them at the same time my crops were ready to harvest.

Re: What placeables are you waiting for?

That's mighty lonesome! :lol: Yeah but once the wife calms down I'll be allowed back in the house. ;) The worst part is your dog can’t get in the harvester with you so you’re sleeping alone Funnily enough I tried that fleabag's kennel out for size but couldn't fit. Besides he whines in his sleep. T...

Re: What placeables are you waiting for?

@lefe1 Just watched a video by Simul8 today and he had added the sleep trigger to that farm trailer. Apparently he's submitted it to the ModHub so it's really down to whether Giants approve it. Personally I'd like to see cheaper and smaller farm house options because at present I'm having to sleep i...

Re: For all those that are tired of Meadow Roller

The big problem with the new roller is it's complete lack of precision. It's towed so it tends to drift and cannot be raised or lowered. If you want to stop resetting a field you have to detach it. In addition it also seems to affect fields you don't own and I managed to accidentally delete a large ...

Re: Did anyone else notice there are 2 things missing on American map?

Yeah Ravenport doesn't have electrical lines but all the buildings light up at night so I just assumed they have emergency generators buried underground. One noticeable fact is that Ravenport doesn't have any refuse collection (unlike squeaky clean Felsbrunn) because the only people who live there a...
