Re: Got a computer!! Questions!

It can technically be done. You can create the mods, then email them so someone to test and use their feedback to adjust / fix them. Then you can submit them for upload, HOWEVER be warned that mods for consoles have rules attached to them. EG, brand licensing, quality, scripts etc. It's why consoles...

Re: Map Question - Buy-able Area?

Then you'll need to either add the buyable areas or request the modder to do so. Again, not sure how as I've never tried. My understanding however is that with FS19 fields are different from buyable areas. The fields can be marked in Giants editor using transform groups. I believe buyable areas howe...

Re: Map Question - Buy-able Area?

That depends. Why are they not accessible? If it's just a fenced off area, you can simply delete parts of the fences. If it's an area that isn't buyable (at all), then you'll need to add them as buyable areas. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with how to do that. While we wait, you could load up the m...

Re: Railroad tracks

I'd agree, train tracks in the real world do not sit ABOVE the height of the road. They sit flush with it.
After all, train tracks are not designed to be speed bumps.

Re: Is it legal to make changes?

As stated yes, however due to breaking multiplayer compatibility AND the likely hood of game files being replaced at every update it is much better if you take the files and load them as a separate mod. I have many mods which are nothing more then people taking Giants vehicles, doing small changes a...

Re: Returning Leased Items

There are two ways to lease items, each have different ways of returning them. Leasing though the contracts system takes the set leasing fees out of your contract price automatically and returns the equipment automatically at the completion of the contract. Leasing through the vehicle shop requires ...

Re: What Is This?

Well if you look at real life you will find that's how it works. My home town had a fertilizer / lime company with a large compound where they stored and mixed everything they spread. They had agricultural spreader trucks that look like the front half of a tractor and back half of a spreader trailer...

Re: Easy way to adjust / visulise placeables in Giants Editor

What would be nice is if Giants (or more likely, some talented coder) added a plugin to the Editor that allowed you to select the defaultitems.xml and then imported and placed the models for you. I'm guessing we shall have to do it the hard way for now. I am curious as to why Giants made this change...

Re: Rollback when cutting branch with chainsaw

Can you please elaborate on this issue. Are you saying that sometimes the logs roll and move after being cut? If, welcome to REAL LIFE. Depending on the terrain, logs often roll about. The difference between the real world and the game is the games terrain is infinitely harder and smoother thus allo...

Lower graphics settings?

Is there not an option to turn the graphics down if you are playing on a low end computer? I've played games with great graphics and absolutely no physics / simulations, I'm played simulators with appalling graphics (Think Rigs Of Rods in the early days). Whilst I'd much prefer great physics / simul...

Re: Seasons 19 WIP Updates

My 1989 4WD with a 4.2lt diesel engine can be tuned to emit no smoke at all (even on full throttle with a heavy load). After some time, the fuel mix will get richer and it starts to smoke a little bit. If I avoid adjusting it I can produce thick black clouds with every gear change (I actually like a...

[Request] Wilderness maps / accessable paddocks

G'day all. With the new placeables and terrain terraforming game play in FS19, my ideal map is just over the horizon. While I'm trying to learn the new map editing techniques (and acknowledging my map making skills have always been sub par), I thought I'd put a few ideas out to the community in hope...

Easy way to adjust / visulise placeables in Giants Editor

Giants, why do you have to make things so hard??? To everyone else, I've never been a big modder, mostly small tweaks for my personal use. Loaded Giants to edit a map to suit my needs and discovered things missing, like all the sell point and fuel triggers. Thought it was a nasty conversion, opened ...
