I always use the UAL trailer that, I think TSM made (?), and it is awesome for loading up wool and then once a great demand, I go in for the kill.

The UAL script servers bales as well as pallets and board palettes. In the menue in the top left corner you can switch the good loaded, I think it's 'y' . But they are not available on console.

If your doing a lot of product moving such as pallets or lumber or animals I'd recommend the road train pack. Very nice looking pack that will autoload pretty much anything. Comes with variations of both lizard semis.

But that's not realistic!!! You must use the pallet forks!! That's the best part of FS!!!

Just kidding! If I could, I'd use the autoloaders to death! I do enjoy loading bales and pallets, but I'm not dealing with 500+ sheep. I don't think I'd want to. :shock: About 100 is perfect balance between good production and not throwing the controller through the window while loading.

I've currently got around 1400 sheep and the only time I have trouble keeping up with loading the pallets (using a pallet fork since I'm a lowly console player) is when I 120x through the night. I use the IT runner bale trailer, load it 3 wide, 4 long and 3 high. When selling I unload the IT runner onto the sell area, it fits nice and neat in the area. It won't sell 3 high on the IT Runner but it will if u unload the IT module into the sell area.

Well, I l do that after I used for the first layer the autoload function. Palettes are one stacked one high, so if you want to have a second layer you must diy.

That's abolition brilliant. You have everything you might need on trucks in it. If you use the changing bridge truck from the same modder with the changing bridges pack you can do everything

Oh nice I hadn't seen that pack yet looks awesome! But back on sheep pallets. Doing all the loading realistically for me means I can't get into other things I want to dabble in on the scale I want it. So I forgo realisim. All down to what each person want's out of their game.

I have gotten pretty good with forks and placing pallets double high on a Bale trailer.
595 sheep now.....bought that 32k liter water trailer sure saves on trips for water.
