Re: Alternative methods for collecting straw

You can place a truck with 3, 4 or 5 (Will depend on the maneuvering area in the silo) BsM 70,000 liters next to the field and collect the straw using the RANDON + Lizard Milling Machine. It dumps on the BsM and then leads to the silo and returns. It'll save you a few trips. In No Man's Land I made...

Re: Alternative methods for collecting straw

You're missing patience :biggrin2: If the premos shuts off you are operating at a too high speed for it to process the swath. Remember, that thing has a operating speed of about 4km/h in real life.... Make your bales, and have the premos with the table setup at the field edge. If you don't have eno...

Re: Alternative methods for collecting straw

You're missing patience :biggrin2: LOL! Honestly though, although I can see what you are saying, I was being really careful, as I've been caught with the turning off thing before (on my Sussex Farms save) Good idea about using the Premos. Again, had this setup on Sussex, in fact I got a little obse...

Alternative methods for collecting straw

I’ve just harvested barley from field 15 on Oakfield Farm, which it turns out is a massive field (well, compared to all the others on the map!) and I’m currently picking up the straw swaths. Even though I only left straw behind on every other run (had two harvesters operating side by side, one with ...

Re: Livestock collisions

Shame :(

It'd be nice if they were solid objects, but that if they wandered into your way, you could then gently nudge them to one side!

Livestock collisions

Or rather, lack of. Just wondering why cattle, sheep and pigs are like ghosts (or ethereal as MrSealyP might say)? It doesn't do any harm of course, but I personally find it a bit disconcerting the way that they casually just wander through tractors, trailers etc. OK, it does make it easier when you...

Re: Farm layouts, show us your setup.

Nope, they are not lockable :(

Perhaps I need to revisit and swap them out?!

Re: Farm layouts, show us your setup.

:) I started the layout on an existing Felsbrunn save when the landscaping first became available, just because I could, but wasn't happy with it, so then started over on a new save. I figured I'd probably never harvest those fields, so wasn't losing land as such. Also wanted to make use of the grou...

Re: Farm layouts, show us your setup.

This is what I did with Felsbrunn, when the landscaping tool first became available. Probably spent more time on this than playing the game! It's based mainly on field 27, on a slope and in the shadow of the castle, but also going back to fields 26 and 25 This is what it originally looked like https...

Re: Forestry lag question - PS4 - non seasons

I'd say you'll be OK My reasoning is that when I got a little bored with Felsbrunn (before moving to Sussex Farms, and then to Oakfield), I planted a lot (and I mean a LOT) of trees on the adjacent field to yours, Field 1. Basically I filled it :) Yes, there was a little lag when driving past the tr...

Re: Mods In Testing - Fan Discussion

What happens with the headers when you drive through hedges? On Oakfield you can drive the combine through, but certain headers get stuck! Of course, you can work round this by getting the header adaptor for a wheel-loader and lifting them over! :biggrin2: The other way to get around this is by jus...

Re: PS4 - Growth menu suddenly not showing anything

It wasn't the silos, as I didn't download this mod. Pretty sure it was Sandy Bay, as a PS4 restart this morning has cured it, as seems to be the case for CaptGoodvibes above. It was odd in that "Fruit Types" was OK, "Growth" showed nothing, and "Soil composition" seemed to show what should have been...

PS4 - Growth menu suddenly not showing anything

It was working this morning (I think!). Can't remember when the update was. Was it this morning or yesterday? Anyway, I can toggle through the "Fruit Types", "Growth" and "Soil composition" options in the menu map, but "Growth" has no options, so can't see the key or hide/show the four elements. Thi...

Re: Transporting pallets on PS4

You could try this

LIZARD Trex6

It's nice and low and also includes a gizmo to place on top of things to allow them to be strapped down!

BUT.... check out this post first before you decide if you want to try this mod or not
