I agree with the fact that it isn't done very well in this game I was just speculating as to why they thought they needed to do it.

Heck I run my games on real-time and I still feel like I am cleaning more than I am farming. I understand the animals need attention and they are simulating this, but these frigging pigs are almost as co-dependent as my separation anxiety cat!

Told you....to give purpose to the skidloaders.

Those are not vehicles you drive from location to location but leave on the spot for just that type of work. Or lift pallets on a trailer. They are cheaper to maintain then heavier lifters so you can leave them on location and have multiple of them for the cost of a heavier loader which you will have to move from location to location. ( cost wise and more annoying to travel that much )

Of course a tractor with front loader is cheaper then skidloaders but chances are you don't want to travel to distant barns that often just to do a cleaning run of lift some pallets. Or need the tractor for other more priority work. Leaving a tractor with front loader on location will be more expensive then a skidloader.

Thus you need skidloaders, or are supposed to feel the need for them :mrgreen:

I love the skid-steers. Just wish I could lift some of the pallets on my map without tilting forward. In real life we could slap some weights on the back. In the game the skid-steers cannot mount weights. So at best they are indeed fit for small forestry work or for cleaning the animal areas.

What a great idea! :D

I made a suggestion to have a shovel mod that we can use.

Yeah or even a yard broom would do the trick.

I like the idea, but to lose productivity is abit extreme, maybe when the cleanliness gets to below 50 does it then start effecting, otherwise you'd spend your whole time waiting for it to drop below 100% to clean it again to keep productivity up

I hate the cleaning because the damn bucket get stuck in the ground, in the through and even in the black yellow stripes, doesn't matter if those are visible or not. By the cows I clean up with the Silo King, it's like the most expensive vacuum cleaner in the world, but works fast and I make my TMR with looses "ingredients" anyway. If the Silo King could scoop up corn and grass I would buy two more.

I'd honestly like to see more options in the game, like we have with periodic plowing and fertilizer stages, turn animal cleaning on and off with make a couple sensitivity settings in between? 25% 50% and 75% speed on dirtiness?

I like using the silage leveler to clean the troughs. Granted, it doesn't pick up the mess, but when I get a good pile, just come up with a big loader and clean it up in a couple passes. The leveler just drops down without having to monkey around with the height like a regular loader.

Am going to have to try the conveyor thing though, good idea.

Using the small conveyor works a treat.

Oooh. I may have to try that. I, too, could care less about losing the stuff. It's such a minimal amount that I'd rather focus on time than loss.
