Newbie help

Post by nelmsm » Mon Nov 30, 2020 7:13 am

Just picked this up on the Steam Fall sale. Worked through the tutorials and understand what needs to be done but what I have a hard time doing is actually driving the equipment. Finally got where I can crank the cruise control down to about 10 and then just steer. Is there any tricks to driving or is it something that only practice will take care of?

As such, it is actually fairly easy to drive around in a tractor or other vehicles, however, it all depends "how" you play the game, for example with a joypad or a steering wheel, will make your experience different to a keyboard.

But also, as with most things, practice makes perfect :-)

Welcome to the forum. Are you using a keyboard or a controller? There is a number of mods that can help with both

I'm using the keyboard. This a lot different than anything I've played before so these old fingers aren't used to driving like this

Are you familiar with modhub? Easiest way is to go into mods or modhub on the main menu. It will download and store the mods in the correct folder.

After clicking on mods press the space bar to search and type keyboard
Click search and keyboard steering should be one of the first few you see. Follow the buttons on screen to install it.
Go through the tabs at the top, 2nd or 3rd is downloads, when that is finished come back out of the mod menu and the game will prompt you to restart to load the mod.

Select the game save as normal and the next screen will prompt you to select mods to load for the game. Put a check in the box beside keyboard steering and then press continue to load the game.

Have fun :biggrin2:

Why not trying a controller? There are pretty cheap ones working well and does give more fun and accuracy
