Stone Valley by Lancyboi

Post by IceUul » Wed Feb 12, 2020 8:38 am

This map just appeared to modhub:
https://www.farming-simulator.com/mod.p ... tle=fs2019

I have been waiting this style map for a long time.
Straight roads, square fields, no forest - sounds unrealistic? Absolutely not!
This is real life area east of San Jose, Illlinois, USA. (use google maps, "San Jose, Illinois", then look east, around Greenhill Cemetary).
So why i have been waiting this style of map? Because this is the map what is based on real life location and you can do big farming
on this one. By big farming i mean, putting 4x JD 790 harvesters work same time on one field, using courseplay and they do they
job as they should in real life. Using several Elmer augers for emptying them and wilson pacesetters to transport crop directly to silo.
Also it would be nice for all the big US machinery that you could not use before.

This map also has Seasons support, this area is called Corn Belt.
The Corn Belt is a region of the Midwestern United States that, since the 1850s, has dominated corn production in the United States. More generally, the concept of the "Corn Belt" connotes the area of the Midwest dominated by farming and agriculture.
Since Illinois GEO was not in modhub, so i guess U.S. Midwest should work fine or any other corn belt state GEO.
This area is also good for growing cotton.

This map also has USA style buildings, Case IH dealer and some other nice features make this authentic US map.
This map is also 4x size, so no console support. Usually the big size causes performance problems, but on this
map i get stable 60fps, no stuttering.

Lancyboi did really good work with this map, everything looks awesome, just one big exception...
Map borders look really bad, if you are more close to edge of the map, maybe it is better idea to avoid this area.
Just some bad photo about unrealistic set of trees, what are even not there on the real life area. Also Lancyboi had
same problem with "Welcome To Charwell" map, basically avoid the border area, then it is good.
The first Lancyboi map "This Is Ireland" has way better borders. Also lot of modhub maps has these problematic border problem.

Also noticed one bug, in main farm, the farm silo extensions appear to store, but they are not sellable, sell
button just doesn't work.

IIRC Lancyboi normally does UK and Irish maps so be interesting to see his/her take on the Midwest USA.

He said that extension was in there by mistake and the BGA isn’t working at the moment on Facebook, but he already has a fix submitted to Giants. I’m excited to try this map!

I've been to the Case dealer on that map IRL. It's a pretty nice place

That's sad. He did say he will honor his updates and said he was done before.

Is he not doing any modding whatsoever anymore? Or is it a break?

What? Yesterday he said Stone Valley is coming to console, now today he decided to quit modding!? :hmm: . That's disappointing was really looking forward to this awesome looking american map on console. Hopefully something else new will come to console been playing the same maps for 3 years!

As soon as that comes out on ModHub, I am downloading it and starting a realistic save there. Can't decide if it will replace Medicine Creek or Geiselsberg, but probably Medicine Creek because it would be an American map swap, and I have too many American saves

I know it's a while down the road, but the How Farms Work map will be coming out by summer according to the modder Stoneway Design. That will be a fun American map with the contoured fields
