Northside Farming Group - Where sim meets reality (MR)

Post by bnjgray87 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 11:20 am

Hello everyone,

We are currently looking to recruit for our server. We are a long standing group over on fsuk , however, we have recently started up again after a summer break. We are running a heavily edited Ballymoon map. Please take some time to read through our thread on fsuk and if interested please https://www.fs-uk.com/forum/index.php?topic=182644.0

About Northside Farming Group:

Northside Farming Group, NSFG for short, came about after my first taste of how good multiplayer could be having tried a few multiplayer servers, daggerwins for example. This was all well and good for a 'newbie' to the game but, it soon became apparent that I had a thirst for more realism, especially when I became more aware of the fantastic mods that were being released regularly.

After speaking with a few good folk on the fsuk community, I had decided to create my own and at least attempt to offer something I wasn't finding myself within the fsuk website. I wanted to provide a server that would offer more functionality, which would ultimately keep everyone busy and split up the tasks to keep things entertaining.  I believe this is very important for multiplayer as it provides a little something for all those who look for different sources of entertainment within Farming Simulator game. As well as providing different aspects of farming, logging and logistics, i wanted to incorporate as much realism as we could get away with whilst maintaining the fun aspect of the game as I'm fully aware members seek enjoyment in different ways. It was and still is important that new members are on board with how we want to run things that way we are all on the same page meaning we can just jump on and enjoy the banter or use it as an avenue to switch off after a long day.

The Northside server is not catered to one specific type of player, this means we attract people from all ages and walks of life, however, we are a mature server. The ages range spans from late teens all the way up through the clouds past 40 years old. My days... some of my members are old ;) Despite the difference in ages we all get along and enjoy each others company as and when we go on.
I must stress that you do not need any experience as we are here to offer support and guidance into MR playing. There is also no requirements in how much time you need to come on, just come on as and when you feel like it.  

Operations:
[hr]
As I mentioned above, we are a server that likes to simulate realistically and as such we have certain things in place to allow us to play like this, be it ; more realistic mods, edited maps and mods, a google field sheet which enables us to plan,organise and monitor, more realistic  approaches to task and so forth. Whilst this all may seem daunting to a newbie to the community, we are not strict to the point where it is no fun, these are just elements in which we add to enhance the experience. There is no manual in which you need to read and follow word for word ;P haha
We ourselves are still learning about many aspects of the game and farming so do not be intimidated by the realistic approach.

Our Map:

[hr]
First of all, I'd like to thank Mappers Paradise for allowing us to modify the map to suit our needs and further improving the map to make it even more rewarding.  We are running a modified version of Ballymoon with the ambition to add more functionality to it. This will keep the work log full during those winter months. Below are some of the items that are currently in the map and will soon be included in future updates.
Those who have contributed to NSFG's edit are as follow; Farmer_bell( Implementation/design, Robbie(Modelling) and myself(Implementation/design)
Multi Terrain Angle
Fillable fuel tanks
Composter
Council Depot( for our snow gritter )
Redesigned Farm & BGA
Sugar,Milk, Pallet, Fuel, and sawmill factories(automatic tip triggers)
WIP Greenhouse
Vehicle locking script/ownership
SnowMask(seasons)
Dirty(mud)
New sell points
Potato washer and steamer
and much more

As I mentioned above, we track and follow our tasks using a field sheet that has slowly evolved since its birth in 2015. I'd like to thank Steven for helping getting this off the ground and I'm happy with how it has turned out. Its worth mentioning that real time in game stats can be monitored(thank you Ian for this) as well as user graphs to see who is currently boss'n the leaderboard. Below is a preview of our task sheet.

To allow me more freedom in changing/updating mods, one of our more gifted members(Mike aka Jamespants) created a mod downloader for us. This will synch your mod folder with how one of our servers, simply log in and it will do the work for you.

Interested in being a part of the team?
[hr]
We currently only accept interest via this thread, not the website or by direct messaging me so.  If you have genuine interest in being a part of our team, please post on our thread only and nowhere else. Please include your speed test to london, pc spec, age, location and briefly why you are interested in our nsfg. One line answers are not to your advantage. If you post to multiple servers at same time as well as applying to join us, you're interest will be discarded. We have invested a lot of time in developing our server and everything that comes with it, if you only care about getting on 'a' server rather than ours, we are not for you.
