SimpleQuestions!

SimpleQuestions!
I thought I would throw this thread together for questions that can be answered in a reply post or two to save the forum from so many individual threads for simple questions.

My simple question is: what is the best way to sell to the biogas plant when the bin is too high to dump into and there is no trigger outside of it?
I don't care where I sell manure and slurry, but I want more than $100/l for it (on easy of course lol) which the biogas plant offers at $300/l. I tried a few things like manure/slury trading systems, or sellpoints but they all just seem to buy for about $100/l. I coudn't find a placeable biogas plant.
On Geiselsberg this is the case and I have tried a couple different things including ramps and the best thing I came up with is the mod "Grain Auger" which is a conveyor belt that just picks stuff up off the ground and dumps it in the bunker. Although the name implies it would only work with grain, it actually will lift anything (including manure). The only problem is that it takes forever and its kind of messy to dump on the ground. Does anyone know of a better way? I'm thinking maybe like a trailer or tipper of some kind that can overload manure directly into the bin or a placeable biogas plant...

Do the base game Annaburger trailers hold manure? They lift from the back for a higher dump off.

Does the new t Rex trailer take manure? It has an elevated dump.

I really hope it does. I think this might be the solution.

What map are you playing? The standard Biogas buildings in the game have tip triggers infront of the actually 'bin'. No need to use wheelloaders or conveyors.
I assume people don't use Seasons, unless they say otherwise.

The AnnaburgerFieldliner as well as both T-Resx Shuttles have the filltypecategory "silagetrailer", which can not hold manure, only grass, hay, straw, woodchips, chaff, silage and sugarcane

If everything else fails you can force tip on the ground and pick it up with the transfer belts.

Thanks for all the replies. I will try the mod you have there Noraf and see if it's easier.
I think the best way was the "Grain Auger" mod. I found that you can just begin dumping and leave and the entire load won't dump on the ground. It just lets out enough to make a small pile and as the grain auger moves it into the bin more comes out. It actually works pretty well, you just come back a few minutes later and it's empty.
Another thing that almost threw me off was that there was no way to sell slurry there as there is no way i could think of to pump it into the bin. I tried all kinds of things thinking there was a trigger somewhere else there but soon I found if you just jam your trailer into the left corner of the bin there is a slice of the trigger big enough to allow you to dump. Such a stroke of luck lol.
So for anyone playing on Geiselsberg - the biogas plant is a challenge but doable.

Question:
Does anyone know of a mod for a narrow sprayer? I have a field in between trees that’s too narrow for any of the sprayers to get herbicide on.

@FarmCatJenkins: 12m was the smallest i could find, but you are probably looking for something smaller and already saw those two

I was planning on cutting firewood to open up that choke point. Actually, that brings up a good question: if you cut down trees into firewood or log length, will they rot on the ground if you don't collect it speedily enough?

I don't think so, unfortunately. I cut a bunch of trees and 3 in-game years later went over there to look around and all the debris was still laying about. I don't think firewood would be any different.

How neccesary is it to move the animals away from the rest of the farm for frame rate purposes? I am about to expand my current 50-cow enclosure and am wondering if I should move it away from the farm.
I don't really want to because almost half of the things on my farm are for them, but I've already started to notice a bit of a delay I think.
Does anyone know how to manage this? Like how far away do I have to put it if I do have to spread stuff out.
Thanks
