Ploughing/cultivating, combining and sowing.
I’m loving the fact we now have tramlines in game as it makes spraying easier. I just wish the e-drive laner didn’t rely on a front loader attachment as none of the large tractors have this option. I also wish more of the larger seeders had ridge markers.
Sowing is now much more fun and realistic especially when the fields are not square.

Isn't the love of driving tractors why we all play this game? 😀
I can still remember the first time I got to drive a tractor. It was fantastic!
Also driving a big forestry machine and load it with logs is awesome. But not in the game, there it *censored*. Something is wrong with the controls.
In the game I think the best thing was driving my harvester at night with the music playing on the radio. I just wish they would update the music with new songs.

I am with you all the way, Perbjorkhem, with the exception of the forestry because I am not a big FS logger. I drove my first tractor when I was 8 years old, and I am looking forward to the summer because that is when we start harvesting alfalfa haylage again and I get to haul hay from 6 am to 8 pm. Do you have a favorite tractor? I also agree with you on the radio. I know they can't use real songs unless they get permission, but it would be nice.

I wrote a thread on this a few weeks ago and ppl said basically noone cares about the radio. I use spotify now but I would kind of like to just let the radio play. If its in the game, it may as well be listenable-to, right? I've heard the electronic station's songs more times than i can count. I think my helpers were about ready to encounter an unexpected problem and quit on me!

Sorry for that, there is a roving band of fanboy trolls who tend to blow up any thread around here they don’t like and get it locked.

I must be a lier then because I love Plowing a field, at least I used to, Those who say "You must be a lier if you said you like to plough" must have never played on FS17 with a PC with realistic mods and multi-directional ground texture's plus all the other mods that bought it to life, it was far better than FS19, I like mowing and tedding as well.

^plowing is cool. Especially with a six furrow plow. Tractor looks like a bad a$$ with a nice weight on the front and a six furrow on the back with wheel weights.

I’ve got a five furrow variable width plough on my Massey 7499 on TWC, and that really makes the engine grunt, getting about 5mph in the fields... Cool stuff!

Thanks for the tip, Mwal. I don’t use Spotify, I have Pandora, but I can always just use a station in my phone anyway. *thumbsup*

I’m not sure how pandora works but Spotify has a free subscription with ads and if I remember right you can set it up to control it nicely with the quick action thing with the ps button without interrupting game play to much
