Re: New to Farming

You guys were really generous with your advice yesterday, and I really appreciate it. Helped me to get my foot in the door, and it's really nice to see a thriving community here that is so welcoming to strangers. I think I'll give the Lone Oak map a shot on a Farm Manager start before I delve into S...

Re: New to Farming

Besides aesthetics, are their mechanical/gameplay differences between American and European maps, in terms of crop growth and animal husbandry?

Re: New to Farming

I'm the type of guy who plays American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 in almost exactly equal amounts.

Re: New to Farming

Definitely a loaded question. All depends on your style of play. I would suggest getting a multifruit silo and Global Company mod, which has implements to make life easier. And courseplay is a must for me. Plus there are hundreds of different tractors and tools depending on what brand equipment you...

Re: New to Farming

@FarmCatJenkins & @DirectCedar, sounds wise concerning just learning the ropes. To answer your question I'm a PC player. How about map mods? Do you have any you recommend for the new player, or should I stick with vanilla? I'm absolutely loving the game so far, though it will be a very long time bef...

Re: New to Farming

Another question! I keep hearing about "Seasons" and "Geo" and I gather that it's a realism mod, and I'm wondering if that's something i should be looking into, or is it so radically different from the vanilla game that I'd be even further overwhelmed with the learning curve? Advice?

Re: New to Farming

Ok, thanks for that info. Next question: how often do I need to fertilize my crops during their grow cycle? I fertilized right before planting, is that enough? Base game (without Seasons) requires two fertilization steps for maximum yield. You can do it anytime as long as there is either a ground t...

Re: New to Farming

Thanks for the advice, fellow farmers. I put on normal dual sized tires which worked like a charm and looked totally bad to the bone, too! Next question is: is there a way to bulk fill my herbicide & liquid fertilizer sprayer similar to lime, or am I limited to buying them on a pallet?

Re: New to Farming

Thanks @bossmanslim, I'll give that a try. I know that different tires make sense in the real world, just wasn't sure how in-depth the simulation was. I love the fact that tire choices are important.

New to Farming

Hi everybody. I'm new to farming, both in the simulator and real life, and find the concept intriguing and overwhelming. I'm struggling with what equipment to purchase, what attaches to what and so forth. There are so many choices haha. As such, I have tons of questions, the first of which is: on a ...
