It would probably create a more extensive file size per vehicle because, I’m guessing, each vehicle will need to have multiple tire “costumes” in order to demonstrate tire wear. It would be realistic though, because tire wear is a big part of equipment maintainence

I’m fairly certain tire wear visual aspects could be done by shader and the physical aspects by lua scripting. For a modder to do it would be a lot of work. Giants I think are more equipped to handle it.

Vegetation management:

Mowing headlands, ditches, roadsides, pastures, etc to keep them from becoming overgrown.

Grading dirt roads, driveways, farm lots that are not paved.

Better grain marketing in general but futures contracts need to be added.
You lock in that you will deliver x amount of a crop at price y after z date and then at some point after that date you get a notification in the morning you must deliver that amount by 5pm today otherwise you will be fined.

Lol had to put gopher bait in some fields, so we did that, and the weekend after we finished, my dads favorite college football team, the Minnesota Gophers, lost to the Wisconsin Badgers. It was a little hilarious

Grain drying would add another dynamic to harvesting and selling grain. There shouldn't be too much to it - a specialist shed, grain and probably diesel and a certain amount of time must pass.

Either build it into the game that you get a bonus for drier grain (dried vs non-dried simply, or a more flexible scale if possible with varying moisture levels coming off the field, tied to the time and weather ideally), or have it as separate fruit types.

I grew up on a peanut farm, so I would love to see that in the game. With diggers and real peanut combines.

That's a good list boss. When I switched to PC, immediately I downloaded the anhydrous pack, fermenting silos, and wopster's gps mod. I haven't figured that one out quite yet, but I will.

Good list indeed. Where did you find the anhydrous pack. I think i will get that because it sounds interesting. If you need help with the GPS mod, let me know, I got it dialed in on my saves
