Post by BreadedVirus » Mon Jan 27, 2020 7:23 pm

So not too sure about this one. Looks good and am very sure that it plays good, but not too sure how to use it

Anyone car to give a few tips on how to use it?

From the way i understood it is that it adds more fill types to the game. Example is if u put chopped grass into a silage bunker to fermate you will now get a fill type closer to haylage like you would get irl. As for CCM thats a type of corn distiller grain im prtty sure that you would feed to cattle. Anyway that how i understood the description in the mod hub but i could ve wrong.

CCM is corn cob mix, which is grain corn harvested together with whole and broken cobs.

You might be thinking of DDG, distiller's dried grains, which is the solids left over after ethanol production from grain.

Currently the MaizePlus mod doesn't really do more than separating the different kinds of silage you can find in RL. Grass, maize and whole crop. At the end of the day they're still the same for the game, but it adds some realism =)
And baling chopped maize is possible =P
I assume people don't use Seasons, unless they say otherwise.

Vanilla game has three different crops that can be made to chaff using different forage harvester headers:
1. Corn
2. Grass
3. Whole crop (other crops).

Problem is that after you run over these crops with forage harvester you get only one type of chaff and this will ferment into one type of silage.
Real life there are different silage/chaff types coming out from different crops. So basically this mod will add different type of chaff/silage to game.
They look different, they can be baled (using bales for fermenting), so outcome has more realistic look of chaff/silage handling.

Will they make any difference, are they different values of feed, i am not sure, maybe this mod is only about the look.
Also i do not know anything about this CCM.

About the calculation also, i am playing at the moment the MAP that has two additional fruits and seasons mod enabled. So heightTypes calculation is: 23 (base game) + 3 (seasons) + 2 (2x extra fruits) = 28
So currently i am using 28 heightTypes (max is 31). This map does not have increased limit of heightTypes, so since base MaizePlus mod uses 4 heightTypes, means total 32 needed, i cannot enable this
mod on my map, so maybe after half year i am going to change the map, then will try out and let you guys know how this mods actually works.

What is heightType? - It is the crop number that can be tipped into the ground, base game has 23 different crops, Seasons adds 3 more (salt, snow and half-dry grass), MaizePlus adds 4 more (corn chaff, corn silage, grass silage and grass chaff) and MaizePlus CCM Extension will add 2 more (CCM chaff, CCM silage). Every extra fruit on map requires only one heightType.

I have not had a go with it as yet but this is also to do with CCM from global co.

Has anyone tested what's up with TMR and the products from this mod?

It should all work the same way as the standard silage.

I did a quick test with chopped corn - forage harvester to get it off the field, emptying into a trailer, then dumped the trailer on the field, then ran over it with a baler - and it worked perfectly. A couple of things, though:

If using Seasons the bales ferment immediately rather than over time. I like that the regular silage bales take time to ferment. Your call.
The TMR mixer from Global Company would not accept the maizesilage bales. I did not try an in-game mixer (though I should have. I would look in the shop to see if the icons are there.)
The bale storage sheds/barns/stacks from GtX will not accept the maizesilage bales. I use these extensively so it was a dealbreaker for me. Again, your call. Probably not all that difficult to integrate - hint hint, GtX.

That's as fas I got. Awesome concept and very well executed. A little integration with mods and it's golden for me.
