In other news, I've been worked like a donkey all weekend pushing a new edit out of the map to give us some much needed improved distant scenery, it really has made a difference. On top of this, I've made the map partly ready for the hose system by Wopster.  Hungup on attempting to use the manure pit method but, hopefully, we can find a way of getting it resolved in the future. Further improvements have been made to the market prices, sheep farm and bga. Also, we have me and my trusty script magician have been working on a script that has enabled us to control the clip distances of vehicles and objects within sheds. Of course, my guys are my guinea pigs for this experiment but, it has worked like a charm. The performance and fps has improved in heavily populated areas like the farm.   You'll notice that the NH starts to fade the further away you are from the shed. Really happy with this so, thank you Timothy.

Also, we've been working on the JCB to add some more life to it.  Currently, she has; a new wheel pack, mesh grill/hud, new strobes, new exhaust particle effects, new sounds, cab suspension, register plate and new lights. Although, its going to be a while before I do something like this again. Ive worked harder on this than I do at work lol.  Jack, big up for assisting in this. Your my boy!

As Iain has touched on, we are still actively recruiting despite the large influx of new and old returning members

So we are into mid summer now at Northside Farming Group (@NSFG).

We got an early (but light) cut of silage done to ease our new Krone self propelled forage harvester in. She seemed to be more than up for the job and with plenty of acres of maize to cut this season she’ll soon pay for herself.

The lads have been kept busy sowing maize and soya the last couple of days and nights and also getting all fields to the correct fertilised state.

Producing our own liquid and pellet fertiliser has certainly cut our costs significantly.

With grass looking good I think we will be at silage again before harvest starts - then it will be all systems go as we try and get everything harvested before the weather turns (not to mention autumn cultivation’s).

Boss man Ben has been talking to some men in suits (hopefully not in public toilets again) and is negotiating a deal on a new on farm distillery and cooperage to produce the finest uisge beatha (whisky) - novel idea producing scotch whisky in Ireland Smiley. Sounds like another diversification opportunity to keep me out the forest (great thing about @NSFG is it’s not all forestry forestry forestry come winter Grin)

We are always on the lookout for new workers. So if you enjoy the craic (and are +16) drop us a line.

Belated Happy New Year everyone from us all here at Northside Farming Group.

Despite the holiday season the farm has been ticking over nicely with the lads putting in the hours in between mouthfuls of turkey and liquid refreshments.

Here are some shots I managed to capture (whilst semi sober) of the last weeks action.

Although we will be shortly waving goodbye to Ballymoon we are still actively recruiting new members to the team.  Our server runs 24/7 on Real Time meaning there is always work needing doing (and we are usually up against it).  

So if your New Years resolution is to enjoy FS at its best then drop us a line on this thread (we are a mature(ish) team so more suited to +18 years old (don't want to turn your hair grey with our banter).  We don't take things too seriously - we want to make being part of a team fun and enjoyable.

All the best for 2018 one and all, wishing you and your families all the health and happiness.

Hello all,

It has been a while since my last post on GIANTS forum so here we go. NSFG is still going strong and we have a great core of players whom have been with us for some time now. We are always looking to add to the group so, if you are looking for a long term home, come check us out on our fsuk thread.

Most probably wont have know this but, we are constantly testing wip mods intended for release and one of our latest test mods was the clipController script that vastly improves map performance by reducing the clip distance of any vehicle in the vehicle.xml. This includes bales. We've been testing this script thoroughly since November last year after floating the idea by my in house guru Timmiej93. This script has since been released and pinned by giants on their modding forum. If anyone is curious, I strongly recommend checking that page out.viewtopic.php?f=895&t=123399

I will leave it at that for now but, please enjoy one of my members most recently screenshots from in-game and our new yt clip. Id like to thank Mike for his first attempt at recording and editing a video. Good effort.

Was enjoying a bit of a nap on the sofa, close to the fireplace in the farmhouse when the chatter on the radio started.  "anyone to cart ?"
So took the old red las, hooked up a trailer and went to find me some combines in the field.

Didnt take me long to find them
Image

Mark and Colin were already cracking on so I quickly unloaded them
Image

After a few trips between the field and the yard they were already heading back, we were against the clock so we improvised an unloading spot

But we managed to get it all in, and headed home

Well winter is now thankfully a distant memory here at Northside Farming Group.

Saying that winter is as busy on our virtual farm as any other season.

This winter saw us testing a new salt script written by timmiej93 which hopefully will be available for others to enjoy soon - the lads and lasses at NSFG all gave it a serious testing and thanks to seasons there was plenty snow to keep shifting.

It was an odd year right enough, we saw ourselves ploughing, sowing and even lifting a late cut of silage in early days of winter. It really did feel like I was working on a real British farm.

Lifting grass day 1 winter

We have now got ourselves a fully functioning biomass plant producing all our energy needs to run the production sites (pallets, boards, barrels and distillery). Nice addition but its a hungry beast and needs constant filling with wood chips. We went through a good number of trees this past year and we will need to get on and replant to keep the environmentalists happy.

We are now well into spring, thankfully we were able to get manure and compost out to the fields when the frost was in the ground and got that spread before the cultivations started.

Grass is coming on well we managed to get onto the fields early in spring with the slurry tankers.

Image

We should be ready to get first cut started very soon. We made a good lot of hay in the previous years so think everything can go into the clamp, we may even have to make some baled silage if clamps are full.

We are still actively recruiting so please drop us a message on the thread here or on our FSUK page if you are interested in joining us.

Morning folks!




So i've just pushed another update to further expand mCompany throughout the map.  We now produce our very own Oaky butter, bio fuel and fruit. I expect to hear no complaints saying there isnt anything to do :P
Image
Image


Lastly, we've been playing around with the customizable UK and matching trailer plates, it has again been expanded. This is a really cool feature actually. We can now randomly generate plate registration but, it will follow the format set by the dvla for Newcastle plates. What a naughty idea! Mind, the Newcastle bit may have been pushed by me for no reason what so ever  ::)
Since the first test , Led strobes have been added to the plates for night time use.

Joined the group last month and have enjoyed the much more varied work along with what you normally find with the standard game. Great bunch of members who are only to happy to help with being a new member to the team. If you are looking for a well run farm with much more than what the standard run of the mill farms have to offer, highly recommended.

hi All, time for another update

While doing a general checkup on things I got a call from the local store they were out of rye and he was willing to pay big money. I replied I'll have a check and call him back. Ofcourse I knew we had loads...

Image

With that done and big money made I joined Tom in some slurry work. While he loaded the field container I loaded the spreader with the 933. New Veenhuis with 15m boom. Very nice Sneaky, thanks !

Image

After doing my first run I come back to the field container Tom waving his arms madly in my directing yelling some words I'll not put down here... Looks like I forgot to close the valve ;D ;D

So here's a shot of me watching the valves very sharp trying to remember to close them before running of

Image

After the slurry it was time check our factories for goods and do some hauling.
This road coming down from HillTop Stores keeps scaring me, if you ever ran down here with a full heavy load you'll know what I mean

Image

Last run of the day was the local brewery. This shot shows that not all dead ends have to be a bad thing.... BEER is to be found at this one.

Image

Come join us, check us out @ NSFG

Special thanks to
Sneaky Beaks for his edit of Oakfield and his continious effort in pleasing his team by pumping out the goodies
Oxygendavid for Oakfield farm map
All modders for keeping up the great work, without you FS would not give us so many hours of gaming
The NSFG team for being such a good bunch of idiots, makes me fit in :D

Now this depends on your connection and your pc specs bud. I currently have people from NL, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and across the UK. We run a pretty demanding setup so, if you dont have the best of pc's or internet then this server is most likely not for you im afraid.
