I could be wrong but I don’t think Realismus made all of the GEO’s so they may not be able to say if they will all come back.

Not sure why you linked that but if you check the fs17 modhub you will see that a lot of geo’s were made by other modders after seasons was released. That was my point.

The GEO mods need to be re-made. Both we need to do our own, and other modders need to do theirs.
For snow on maps we fall back to the tipCol now (changes in FS19 allow is to), but we disable rotting when we use it, so bales do not rot when inside sheds that are static on the map. This change does mean that if you place a shed on an unprepared map, no snow will fall inside the shed.

Placeable also need masks, but we use the clearArea if we can't find a custom mask (we also used the clearArea in FS17)

Looking foward to play Seasons in FS19. I´m prepping up my farm, bought a couple os fields, plowed, put some lime, fertilized the fields, and just waiting the right time to be sowed (when seasons come, obviously - the soil is a little too damp to get the seeds). Until them, bought some cows and chickens and I´m making a little money out of it.

...And THAT becomes boring after 6 seasons.
Im happy that I planted manually trees at start of seasons 4, (because i knew my trees are empty at some time) if I hadn"t planted them, then I had no work now in the winter in season 6.
Unless you play at Hof Bergmann map. Then you get to make butter, cheese, organize them at the farm shop, make pigfood, make your own seeds, put the grass in the hay dryer system, store the hay in the hay storage, so on and so forth. This map make you busy all the time. It´s just a fantastic map.

Will the place anywhere mod have any bearing on the snow mask or placeable sheds?

Rahkiin said a few days ago they were at about 94% but never said anything about mod contest and there is no testing like they had with 17.

Yeah but that is unrealistic, in winter you don"t make butter, cheese... organzie at the farm shop ok i would say, make pigfood, also ok, seeds i would say yes, put the grass in the hay dryer system no, the grass is not good anymore in winter, store the hay in the hay storage, you do that closely after you made hay.

Though its made on the basic of the felsbrunn, so the map is not an option for me, even if (from pictures) you can"t see many things from Felsbrunn

Why can´t you produce cheese or butter in the winter, if you have all the milk you need stored in the tankers? Also I looked over in the internet and Germany, for instance, produces cheese in January, February, etc., right in the middle of winter (look for it on Clal.it website). Nonetheless, you, as the player, get to decide if your farm is located in Germany or not, although the map is based in Germany. Regarding the Grass/Hay, I guess the GEO will consider this and probably will not let you mow grass, but if you have grass stored from previous "harvests", you can dry them in the dryer and store them on the top of the barn using that belt system. You can do that in the winter, no problem at all. Regarding being based in Felsbrunn, I think it is quite different. It doesn´t even resemble Felsbrunn. Fields are different, it is not very hilly as Felsbrunn, the town is in a different area, it does not have a river or sea, it has unique buildings and stations, you can deliver wheat or barley in the miller and make Whole Grain to mix with potatoes/beets and make pigfood (and you can sell the pigfood if you do not want to raise pigs), it has a skinner where you put your dead pigs and get charged for it, so It is a very different and challenging map, for instance you can put your potatoes and milk (produced from unconfined cattle in pastures A and B) in the farm shop for a higher price (retail). Anyway, since I never played in Felsbrunn, is not a problem to me.

I'm with you USARIC, Hof is the perfect map for seasons with the other activities you can do during winter to bring in good money. Currently getting everything ready at the farm for when seasons arrive!

Although I do hope/wish for snow plow contracts...but I won't be bummed if that doesn't happen.

actually off is the ideal card for season ... I did not start playing but I prepare the farm before the season arrives.

I can confirm that I intend to release my Geo Mods for FS19. However I have no access to any code until the mod itself gets released and as such it might take a while for these Geos to be released, depending on how different from 17 that process is. Also I plan to revamp the MN USA Geo as well if the weather has been updated so that it handles snowfall better than the 17 mod.

@RM I am not complaining in the least about either having access to coding or the weather engine for Seasons. As many have said before the mod is a complete game changer and while I have enjoyed playing 19, as someone else said the subtle changes in the game have made it hard for me to go back to 17, however lack of seasons in 19 has made me lose interest in my various saves rather quickly.

Indeed. If you think straight, this game is essentially boring after you buy 3 or more fields and get to try different equipments. And it has been a boring game since FS13, nothing really has changed but graphics and physics. Even the weather system and its effects are ridiculous. You just go there, plow your field, sow, fertilize, wait, harvest, sell and repeat the same process over and over. Adding more elements and challenges, such as the things in Hof Bergmann and Seasons mod, for example, increases gameplay and adds a lot of immersion, transforming a dull game into an enjoyable one.
