Re: Remove the 200 bale console limit

I run 2 tractors, a harvester and a few implements on an Xbox. Happily playing w/o lag or performance issues. Maybe a little p* envy. Thank Giants for slots. Now have 200 acres of straw to collect in forager wagon. Bales on Ravenport don't pay. *Out*

Re: [FS19] improving yield - can the max yield bonus exceed 65% or it is a max?

forum member tested not repairing the harvester and uploaded a vid showing that yield gets affected when it goes below a certain level. The header does just affect speed though. Good to know. I guess I always keep my equipment in repair! Is there any visual clue that harvest is affected, such as cr...

Re: [FS19] improving yield - can the max yield bonus exceed 65% or it is a max?

I have not had that happen. AFAIK all repair affects is speed of harvest, not quantity.

Re: [FS19] improving yield - can the max yield bonus exceed 65% or it is a max?

I puzzled with this as well at first. The help screen description in game I think is a little misleading. You can get 100% bonus just as we did in 2017. From what I can tell for the purposes of yield, I start with a base yield of, say for example 4500l/ha for soy (you can convert to acres, but the g...

Re: [FS19] Ask Lisertan ( Questions and answers)

For FS21: Will there be some form of "Follow me" (i.e. Course play) included? Or at least considered? Request that if your first response is "no idea" you change your answer to "Will get back to you on that". Hope must spring eternal.

Re: [FS19] Ask Lisertan ( Questions and answers)

Hi Lis,

Thanks for creating this thread. When we read your reply in the forum Daily Updates - Mods currently in testing [Console/PC] and your only comment is "update" should we assume this is some sort of "autoupdate" or what do you want us to think? Thanks again

Re: [READ] Steering back speed setting - PS4

Not sure if this feature worked as intended, but removing it noticably affected my ability to control my tractor. Still trying to figure out how to keep from turning into that darn river heading up the hill on Ravenport.

Re: Crop Yields

Interesting code excerpt Seb. So bonus for fertilizer appears to be 50 percent per application rather than 25 as advertised. Still trying to figure out how weed, lime and plowing bonuses work, they don't seem to approach 15 percent of anything that I can see. Almost no penalty for weeds, only about ...

Re: How to fill Stara Drill

I use the Stara only with no issues. I have found difficulty only when both seed and fertilizer big bags are next to each other. It is important to make sure the bag that triggers the Stara to "open" is valid for the opened compartment. So if the fertilizer compartment opens but then you get too clo...

Re: [SOLVED] Great Plains YP-2425A Can't Plant Corn

I have been watching this thread pretty closely and even though I didn't have a strong opinion one way or the other, it seems clear from comments and any objective viewpoint that letting the 2425 plant corn was the correct decision. I am impressed by Giants listening to their customers. After all, i...

Re: THE GAME ITSELF

Horrifying. Perhaps related the the "known issue" regarding placing and removing placeables? Although the report says terraforming may not work properly, no crash reports. I have been playing with autosave turned "off" to help make sure I don't make any catastrophic error. Fingers crossed.

Re: Weeds Penalty

If it is like fs17, the bonus would be based on a field that had no perks. For a example barley on normal with no bonus would be 9600/ha, with plow and fertilizer perks you get 100 percent bonus to make 19200 yield. Assuming similar yields for Farm Manager mode, your trial runs on Felsbrun should be...

Re: Weeds Penalty

Interesting. Did you keep notes? For example on my xbox one save on Ravenport using lot 21 I tried starting with a field with 100 percent fertilized and weeds but no lime. Turned off autosave . Got 8188 liters of soy, the weeds were in full flower Then reloaded and limed, let it grow to maturity and...
