Oh sorry, my bad, its the FL6, the F12 we use for moving grain and such, I mix them up 😖
FL6 good little bus, although we had an FS 6 , supercharged 250 at work a few years back now that was proper pokey , we also had the FS7 good puller but went through turbo units like they were going out of fashion 🤔

Yeah, I enjoy the smaller trucks in game. But does anyone know if it comes more smaller tractors and potatoe-equipment to console? Like the Ford and the Renault Daggerwin uses in his youtube-videoes?

Oh what a shame.. Grew up with a Ford 5610, from the 80’s on our farm, with the gear-sticks mounted under the steeringwheel. Miss that tractor sometimes.

But what about David Brown?

Really hope they release more potatoe-tech, the equipment is a bit big on the basegame for my current playstyle...

I was just looking at the mod hub, it's interesting that certain categories have very little to nothing in them regarding mods. what does that say about the actual feature in game?

take sugar cane for example. big new feature for FS17 platinum. two years later mod category for sugarcane tech is empty

Cotton big new feature for FS19... cotton tech category has 1 mod

Potato tech has 4
Beet tech has 3


Anyways.. mods I'd like to see
Big M 500 mower
forage and chips silo
case ecolo-till ( various sizes? )
spectacle island like map ( start with few fields, lots of forest, build up farm from there)
seasons on grizzly mountain

And for ps4 gamers, potato tech has only 3, missing the agromet-pioner.. 😣

Most people dont really know much about sugarcane harvesting or have no interest. If people kept asking then maybem

Giants needs to look at pure farming what focuses more on different forms off farming all in one game. They gave us wine vines and other orchards.

The problem with grapes and things is that they're not the staple or universal crops, so a lot of people won't be interested in them.

Going back to FS17's Platinum DLC, I wonder how many actually bought it for the sugar cane and how many have used it since? I didn't buy it and I don't think I know anyone who did.

Sure the map (well the buildings) looked superb, but the problem with sugar cane was that it looked so tedious, cumbersome and frankly boring (even with the biggest and most expensive equipment) that I wouldn't want to do it. But GIANTS probably spent considerable development time on it and maybe hundreds of thousands of Euros creating and marketing it. Was it worth it? Probably only they and Focus know that. The same goes for any 'side work' (non-staple or common) really.

The trick is finding enough fresh aspects to give the game variation whilst also ensuring those aspects are interesting and enjoyable. Something I personally don't think grapes would be.

This is why it took a group of inspired modders to create Seasons and why GIANTS never introduced it in a previous game. Much of the year is fairly barren in FS with little to do, so if a seasonal aspect is to make it into FS21 or a future game, then GIANTS will need to flesh out the game with more extensive and varied winter and spring work while keeping it interesting. Given maps are based on locales that's not a task I envy.

Fs is a series based on a lot of european players also a lot off german players so thats why i think branching of in to orchards is a good idea. They can also expand to more rootcrops or cabbages.
The big problem with sugarcane is that you need to put the harvester on a worker or the tractor on follow me to make it work with a big trailer. That is something that cotton doesn’t suffer from so thats why its more used than the sugarcane. And also sugarcane is mostly grown in southern america and don’t know how big the playerbase is there.

You do realise we have orchards in Europe, right? Including Germany (for the record GIANTS aren't a German company).

I agree regarding rootcrops, though I think a bit more focus on the current rootcrops before expanding them further. The issue with that is that it again requires unique and detailed vehicles for different rootcrops. That's a lot of focus for a limited selection of work.

I live in europe so i realise we have orchards in europe. Like in america around the hotter states they also have a lot off grapes hence their wine production

It is even understandable that many do not like FS17 Platinum DLC due to the region it is based on, sugar is mainly grown in South America and is also widely used for silage and cattle feed including many producers make bales from cane straw .

I always see players growing sugar cane in at least one of their fields, but I don't see anyone growing sugar beet :lol: , that kind of crop doesn't really grow here.

Auto stacking Bale Barn. Or hayloft. Pull your trailer to the trigger, bales unload and stack in barn..? I love stacking hay and playing with my loaders. But I bale so much hay/straw at loneoak for my cows the game says I have reached my limit and I have to sell some to make more. That’s a lot of hay to stack... I know I could just keep it in loose straw, but it’s a lot easier flying down the lines with my high density bailer then my loading wagon.
