Was really hoping the xerion could be configured between a xerion trac, trac vc, or saddletrac ....really wanted a saddletrac

I'm into a field of wheat on (updated) Greenwich Valley on my brand New Dom 108 -- couldn't be happier!

BUT on PC the bonus items are installed in the default location(*) and so if you have moved your mods folder (as I have) they don't show up until you go looking. I think this has happened before with bonus content?

The Dominator sounds just right, it looks good too. I haven't tried much else yet because I did buy this DLC for just that one combine!

Giants set new quaility standard with this pack for sure. Models are lovely and attention to detail is insane. Very very well done! Way better from base game models in FS19.
My fav machines are Tucano, little Arion, little Torion and telehandler Scropion. Congrats to Giants also for implementing new tracks, which are now way more realistic, form ones in the base game.
My oppinion is that the pack offers quite a lot and its worth it if you wish for new tractors and unique machines like big bois Torion & Xerion.

Hey mate, you mean you bought the whole DLC just for the combine which came as a mod? (Dominator 108 SL Maxi)

I love the Platinum Expansion. Thank you to all the staff at Giants for creating this amazing expansion. A couple of things I feel could have been in the pack. Since we got mowers, balers and loads of silage equipment I feel a windrower and tedder would have been a great addition to the pack. This is a wish not a request, but maybe some modders could fill this gap. Yes I know its down to modders to make mods if they want to and what they want to create. Just putting my thoughts out there. Over all I am extremely happy with my purchase. I look forward to see what Giants announce next. I know John Deere fans would like to see more added to the line up. I hope you get your wish.

Pretty much Yes.

I will use the other machines, and I might have/would probably have bought it without the Dominator, but that was what sold it to me.

Very nice all around, my favourite feature is when you drop the header on to the trailer it appears too lock itself on, no more falling off I hope 👍

Going to skip this dlc since im not a big fan of claas and i still have not used base equipment and some great mods to an extent which i would like. However i can say from ammount of vehicles they added i think its worth buying

It's is a bit weird considering we got pretty much everything else in the grass range, though we can hardly complain at the lack of items when you consider how much we did get though! Perhaps they simply ran out of time - perhaps a couple of free mods in the future?

As good as all of the equipment it, I think my favourite in the DLC proper is the small Arion 400. Such a good yard tractor, especially with that cab, but with enough power to do some good field work too. A perfect first upgrade in a save game.

The Arion 600 is a great rival to the T6, Maxxum and Profi too but also my favourite tractor from FS17, the Valtra N Series. It's got a great range of power.

Good to see GIANTS and Claas see the value in historical equipment too with the bonus Dominator. Since I'm on PC and it's not encrypted I've already removed the German warning on the back. Can never have enough old equipment.
