Is there a fertilizer trigger on this console map? I've used the lime and seed. I haven't used the water trigger, next to the north road access point of the main farm.
Haven't ran into one. I will be using the mini seed/fertilizer silo placeable and either giants liquid fert tank or placeable pallets from ddmod passion to handle that.

Trying not to do too much on map but crops and contracts so when it updates I won't loose anything important and will be fairly easy to rebuild

There is a seed trigger at the main farm. It is near the silo next to the garage (if you at the silo, look towards the main road with the water tank, look to your right by the garage).

Looks like a map update for both console and PC is in the works, based on his FB page. Console description mentions new save required; I assume that will apply to PC as well. Curious to see the changes.

Regarding the Geo update for today....I see it for PC and Console, but it say Onion, Carrots, Clover, Field Grass.....Console gets these fruits?!?!? I thought Console seasons was very close to the Fruit Limit on Seasons, once Hay/Straw Pellets came out.

Yeah, I'm using the AJ Seed/Fert Hut as well - too bad it's increased my Fert costs by 33%, but oh well, its a lot easier that transferring 40 pallets of liquid fert barrels every few days. I'm surprised there wasn't a fert trigger, considering the size of the fields...the seed and lime triggers are Godsends.

No, PC has those fruits. But the GEO is available for both platforms. You can't update one without the other. Rye is the only thing on console that PC does not have. The biggest change for console is the extended harvesting into Early Winter.

Since we are kind of talking about Geo's why aren't there any Geo's that allow you to harvest corn all winter long and into spring? With the way things have been over the last couple years, there are quite a few farmers that weren't able to harvest corn until well into late January or February, until the ground froze enough to get a combine on the ground. It's not ideal, but they do it.

Ok got ya. I've been a little out of the loop the last week. Once I heard he was doing an update I pretty much stopped playing the map because I didn't see the point in getting any deeper into it.

I mean really you can combine whenever you want, but you will lose crop value. If you have a geo with harvest anytime, would the game know when the crop has withered still?

In the Uk sugar beet are lifted anytime from September to early March, I guess it would confuse the game for a GEO to allow it.

A couple of observations after playing this map for ~70 hrs.

1 - I changed the MaizePlus.xml to allow Alfalfa Silage and Clover silage to be used in cow feed mixtures.
2 - Am I missing the trigger for the slurry lagoon? I don't seem to be able to find a way to put slurry in it at the cow farm area. Edit: So I messed up. There are two slurry lagoons in the Cow area. I assumed that the most visible pit one was a storage area for slurry or digestate. It appears that it is the second lagoon for the cow husbandry area. It is not made to have things added to it from outside sources.

3 - I'm really liking the map. The fields are unique shapes and courseplay / helpers / autodrive seem to be okay with it so far.
4 - Does the BGA accept slurry? I don't see or cannot find the trigger point. It shows up in the pda that the BGA will pay for it, I've been unable to unload it. The BGA does accept Slurry. I just found I had to back my trailer all the way up to the unload point. The trigger on my trailer apparently wasn't interacting.

I edited my post for clarification.
