Bummer about the planter as it's a nice looking mod. I especially like the fact that you can customize for tires or tracks. May be best going forward if they keep the testing in house instead of outsourcing beta testers (if that's the proper term.). Anyhow, thanks Eric for the heads up on the tractor tire changes. Hopefully this one lands soon.

SAD NEW FROM HIS FB PAGE:

I didn't want to do that, but see it's unfortunately necessary.
*INFO ABOUT 8R EU 2016-2018*

Good news: Our 8R EU with over 2,400 xml lines of Programing passed all tests and could be freely available on consoles ;)

Bad news: It will never be available on ModHub. Why?
I received a message from Giants which they write there that one modding team accused me of "stealing" the mod - this team was Custom Modding.
Giants sended me pic of same part - Front Bracket Weight holder - which is on my 8R EU and Custom Modding's US edit which didn't get approve on modhub.

The part which we talking about was from Giants base game John Deere 8RT = was made by Giants, not by Custom Modding (you can easly check it - just open it in store and take a look) - I said the same to Giants and that I can send them all screenshots/evidences which proves that I did all the work on 8R EU myself: cutted model form base game John Deere 8R, freezedTransforms parts on base $data model, scripted a new, all Configurations, UDIM, Displays programing, ILS suspension, game $data paths, vehicleType, extra animations, decals (with little help from SiiD Modding on proper decals model).

Summarizing: After no response from Giants and after Custom Modding's lies about my work, my versions of 8R - and probably S Series Combines in future too - will NOT be available for Consoles on official ModHub.

Thanks for reading, I just wanted to let you know about that.

Is the front end of every JD 8R not the same? Surly he even states its from the base game. So surly this is a case of the modder must prove its been stolen? i hope Giants reads his proving evidence and doesn't just stick its head in the sand because it just seems like a bad hit to a already angry console player base.

Sorry but this absolutely BS...thanks to Giants once again a great mod that a modder worked hard won't make to consoles. Another reason why I'm pretty much done with this game and stand by my request awhile ago for my money back on season pass( which I'll never get) just stupid...

Why is it BS? If its stolen, then its stolen. If not, perhaps they'll sort it out. I told you all, there is ALOT of drama surrounding JHHG modding and his practices.

It's BS because it can't be proven... modders make the mods of certain machines so of coarse they may look alike. It's just stupid, console mods are harder to begin with and now JHHG can't even turn more in after this accusation. JHHG even states on his Facebook that he isant console mods anymore, players are the ones suffering here

Agreed! Was REALLY looking forward to this mod and the combine he did! It's a shame what happened with the JD planter too.

If it's not stolen, then why are we worrying? I mean, if they made it themselves, and can prove that, then they have nothing to worry about surely lol

My comments were reading JHHG original Facebook post where they rejected it and stopped future work. However now giants are "supposedly" allowing him to prove it and might accept after. Just a waiting game now

I wasn't aiming that at you by any means! Just a general comment. :)
