Console maps with a lot of trash and junk strewn about...

Post by CaptGoodvibes » Tue Aug 04, 2020 8:54 pm

It sure would be great if there was some way to keep busy during the long boring hours waiting for grass to grow. :smileynew:

If I could lift and haul away trash and junk left by the map maker and perform some beautification afterwords in the way of planting pleasing greenery or wildflowers, I wouldn’t have to keep rage-deleting maps :lol:

I’m with you on that. Maps with trash and junk everywhere don’t look “interesting”, they just look like junkyards. It wouldn’t be so bad if we could delete the stuff without having to go through the BS of the Giants Editor, but since we DO have to use GE to clean up their mess, I just delete maps that look like a 13 year old’s bedroom.

Hahaha do other people enjoy it. A lot of farm yards are not clean. There is always a junk pile somewhere.

I wouldn’t mind removing trash and junk with a big bucket and roll off container. Farm projects...

That’s like saying, if some people don’t like transportation contracts so they should exist :lol: *thumbsup*

I’m asking for the contracts in the way of farm projects I suppose...

Well, it can't be an operating farm without a scrapheap, where new things arise in a work shop.

Being able to delete things in general would be a nice feature.
Like posts that are an inch from the side of the road.

Lol 😂 We’ll we need a scrapyard then for selling junkies. Just a few bucks here and just a few bucks there. I guess I’m already too much into selling and buying in the game but probably some mod creator could figure out something :)
drinking beer when I'm scripting...sure it helps :lol:

Sure but as the farmer, why can’t I haul it away when I have time? 🙂

Yeah, it does get in the way. I'd love it if you could sell scrap metal like in real life.

It sure would be great if there was some way to keep busy during the long boring hours waiting for grass to grow. :smileynew:

If I could lift and haul away trash and junk left by the map maker and perform some beautification afterwords in the way of planting pleasing greenery or wildflowers, I wouldn’t have to keep rage-deleting maps :lol:

I'm with you 100% on this. I've spent countless hours in the Giants Editor deleting junk and often thought that it would be so much better if I could haul it away in game during down time from farming. Getting paid would be a bonus.

The "old silo parts" are that are so popular with many mappers that you would make a fortune from them alone on most maps if you could sell scrap steel :lol:

I've said this before here someplace, just how many piles of "old silo parts" can we expect to find in any given 2 square kilometers? Some otherwise decent mappers put them everywhere and manage to severely devalue what they have spent lots of time to make.

Yes they do get in the way and they most certainly are not realistic in the way that you can't move them or sell them and there are just way too many of them.

Stuff that's just put there for decoration really kills immersion for me more than it adds to it. Bales for example, sitting outside without ever rotting like the ones you make in seasons mod, getting in the way and taking up expensive space. Inanimate animals and people are immersion killers too and often have wildly resource heavy modelling and optimization.

Endless piles of fire wood & lumber, older low detail models of tractors, harvesters and what have you, the twee and utterly useless space eating "log fountains" everywhere that I've never encountered in real life all using valuable ram, while getting in the way and making an otherwise easy on the eye map look plain ugly.

Trees planted underground and scaled down to look like bushes, against Giants modding recommendations and for may good reasons is up among the worst offenders in my book.

Lately I just delete the map and avoid the author thereafter, rather than waste time trying to make it playable to my standard.

Less in this case is defiantly more.

:lol:

No worries, I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone on this by a country mile *thumbsup*

Sure some people seem to like to spam a map with non-movable, unusable objects, or better say obstacles & trees that you just cannot harvest and it seems that many of them happen to make maps or feel pressured into decorating their maps to cater for this inane group think idea.

There a plenty of us on the other hand who are here just for the farming. When I get going on a farm it doesn't take long to accumulate equipment, bales, pallets, fuel cans and other useful, functional and movable stuff that fills the empty spaces these mappers seem so frightened of leaving.

Towns, castles, circuses, cemeteries, aircraft, boats, large highways, trains, decorative fountains, whale bones, weird statues :hmm: (whats that all about?) and the aforementioned endless permanent junk, are all just simply not a requirement for the farming, particularly when it's all happening within a 2 sq km area, make it a massive waste of potential farmland and graphics resources.
