How’s the map progressing Mobias?

And I know I'll take some falls
But with the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all

Hi everyone. Just updating this thread after a long while. Recently a couple of people have got in contact with me asking about whatever happened to this map. Its still on the go. I've been using my free time in the current lockdown to do a lot of work on it. From a design point of view its all done. There's 28 fields in total with 4 farms ranging from small to huge. From a gameplay point of view I like maps where you can start off small and work your way up to running a really big farm. I'm currently going around finishing off adding all the little details. It is a detailed map so that part of it is taking a lot of time. After that its a case of then making the map work and getting all the triggers functioning. Thats the bit that may end up taking me a while as I'm very much on a steep learning curve with all this.

My plan is to try and get it finished for the Autumn of this year, if real life stuff doesn't get in the way. If it looks like I'm struggling then I may reach out into the FS community to see if someone trustworthy wants to help me out a bit finishing it off.

I don't think this map will end up being for everyone. I've just tried to make a map thats a bit different to what I've seen with other FS maps, particularly US maps anyway. My big inspiration was Lone Oak. So think Lone Oak with hills. That's sort of what I've aimed for. Like with Lone Oak the map has totally open borders giving the impression of being part of a much bigger area. I really don't like map edges that are just lined with trees with not much beyond to look at. I ruins the immersion for me.

Anyway I've made a very rough 15 minute long video for Youtube so you can take a look. The description there has a bit more info.

Here's some recent screen shots. The map has changed a lot since I brought it over to FS19

Well this is wonderful news! I've visited the Palouse a number of times, and your work is definitely a tribute to the area. Looks terrific Mobias, keep up the awesome work!

I have Been trying to build a map of this are for YEARS but the magnitude of the Mods necessary compatibility to the terrain always over welled me with the next updated game release.
Here is a bit of History of my area.

Yes! This is the kind of map I've been looking for since FS2013! I'm from just north of the Palouse and we still have some of those hills.
