Re: Making silage

Yeah, yields have changed since then, for better or for worse.

Re: Making silage

Yes, in a single harvest of the two crops that are fully fertilized and fully grown in grass's case corn will yield more than grass. Here is a chart of yields (just scroll down until you see chaff yields): http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f ... =805367551

This has not been implemented in the vanilla (default) game. But there is a mod out there, Seasons Mod, that could easily implement this idea if the idea was added to the mod.

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

@CarsenGray At least you fixed that problem :). @Yetti19966 There is no way to tell if another player has a mic unless you physically ask them somehow, like in the in-game chat. Sometimes you may have to turn off your DLCs to allow other people to join if you know for a fact that the other player(s)...

Ok, send us your log. This sounds like a technical problem. Instructions are in my signature.

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

As for the fertilizer spreaders and any other fillable tool, you need to have the tool selected before you can refill. As for the frontloader tool, you might need to position the frontloader properly before the attachment can be attached.

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

Shouldn't need to get another frontloader, but double check that the bale fork you bought can actually attach to a frontloader. The Stoll attachments will only attach to the frontloaders and the Kramer, but you can't use the skidsteer or telehandler tools on a frontloader and vise versa.

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

... And if you are on PC, you use a combination of the mouse buttons and mouse movement to control the frontloader. You can also use J and N the raise and lower the main arm, K and M to tilt the attachment.

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

Giants has made some improvements since FS15 (and even in FS15 they had made these improvements). It used to be that you would have to cut at a 45 degree angle before the tree could begin to fall naturally. Now, you can cut perpendicular to the trunk and at the end of the main cut a small notch just...

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

@Erica: Lining up the chainsaw properly can be a bit tricky. To start, you need to turn the chainsaw on its side using the left or right mouse buttons and moving the mouse (this is for PC, I don't know the console controls someone else will have to help me on this part). It is best to position the c...

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

Depends upon what you are using and what tree you are trying to cut down. This of course assumes that your game is working properly to begin with. A chainsaw can be used to cut down any tree of any shape or size regardless. This is the inexpensive way, but also the most labor intensive option as you...

I didn't know there was a pallet to conveyor method. I guess because I have yet to use conveyors. :)

Since when were we able to fill tippers with seed and fertilizer from a fill trigger?

To elaborate on the subject, I went to go refuel one of my tractors that had a tipper attached to it when I was playing on my custom map last night. The fuel station that I was using also has liquid fertilizer, seeds, and solid fertilizer in the same shed as the fuel tank. Anyways, I was intending t...

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

Two things come to mind: - You could have too many mods installed. If you don't have them activated in your savegame, the game will still load those mods (this happens on PC as well) - If you have a large amount of equipment in one spot, spread them out a bit. If that doesn't help, then here is a li...

Re: New to farming? Ask questions here:

What are the symptoms of the lag? Is the lag related to only parts of the map or is it present throughout the map? If the lag is present in only a few spots on the map, do you have large amounts of equipment or bales in a certain area? Does the lag go away if you start a new savegame on the same map...
