your correct the main farm does not have horizontal silage bunkers at the main farm. Many a farm in the US have the vertical silos for silage that are block construction similar to those on the map.

Really? Ive never seen vertical silage silos before and ive been on alot of dairy farms. I didnt realize the fermemters were actually legit. I actually kinda enjoy leveling and compacting tho

99% of farms here in Western Canada use holes in the ground or dirt walls for silage bunkers. As a kid up till my mid 20's i would get paid well to come and tarp and throw tires on the pits.

I got my PC up and running yesterday so I've been checking out some of these US mod maps. Tazewell county Illinois is definitely the best of the ones I've looked at. I've started my farm there. Its seems like a pretty decent representation of a real life place. Definitely takes a bit of getting used to coming of playing the UK maps. Enjoying it so far though

Another decent US map is Oregon Springs. Its a shame this map has never found its way to console. I think I'm right in saying its a X2 map and it looks far better than any of the US maps that have found their way onto console.

Yeah I'm waiting for Tazewell county Illinois version 2 as it's going to require a ne save unfortunately. But u can probably transfer the vechile.xml over.
