Good console map with low slots

Post by Konnork98 » Thu Oct 24, 2019 9:27 pm

I keep running into the problem of using nearly all my slots looking for a good map with low slots that I can build as big as these gd console limitations will let me. Currently trying to make what I have on lone oak work

Curious as to what are you using? I have pretty much everything I could want on Lone Oak and still comfortably under 1000. I also lease most of my specialized equipment like harvesters though. They go back to the store once I'm done.

But I would like to know some low slot maps too for future reference myself. All these 50 slot tractors coming out lately might make it difficult.

Well I’m now realizing I didn’t start on farm manager lol so I’m sure that that would help me out as well hahah but I do have the modded case tractors and I know their slot count is a bit higher then the in game models I own 2 harvesters 3 or 4 tractors a telehandler equipment for my animals I do have quite a bit of stuff but I always make sure to try to buy something I already own one of the make the count lower after realizing I didn’t start on farm manager I think that’s my main issue 😂 going to start a new game save try to get everything I had but start it on farm manager and see if that helps

Be careful on that some of the maps don't let you use the animals pens originally placed there without being on new Farmer. Also I recommend dahl ranch. Low slot count started in new Farmer and sold other stuff off to create it lower.

so I haven't played 19 on console at all.. it just doesn't make sense with my pc.. but in 17 the slot count wasn't really an issue as long as u weren't trying to own one of everything.. is it really that much worse with 19?

I have only struggled with ravenport, my first map, because I wanted every single John Deere, tons of equipment, lots of tractors, and lots of placables. Marwel might be tough with all claas, but so far I'm good.

I was considering giving Dahl ranch another look, I don’t remember having the slot issue on 17 either but with 19 I’ve had more issues than not, the John deers have an insane slot count! I’ve givin up on a John Deere farm until I can get a pc hopefully this winter once work picks back up, I haven’t checked out the new dlc yet what’s the slots like compared to I game stuff?

I believe you will be able to have all John Deere on dahl ranch or at least close to it. I haven't played it since the slots got fixed on xbox though.

There isn't a bga and only 1 sell point for grain. The best grain is soybeans and canola, which I think they grow them more than the other grains. I put down a bale sell point because I didn't like the barn prices. I also put the small bga down but that doesn't accept slurry, so I put the slurry trader down. Also I had 2 big green machine shed, 3 large shelter sheds, hog pen, chicken pen, the realistic hog building, seed and fertilizer storage, liquid and herbicide storage, a shop, gasoline, and the placables for seed and fertilizers.

In 17 I didn't have an issue unless I went haywire buying stuff. In 19 the machines have higher slots now making your own farm with buildings unusually float near the 1000 slot mark out 1299. Now I don't usually do animals..if I would then add more machines and what not and could easily hit the 1299 cap.

I speak for single player only but it is worse. You have to be a little more careful on a big diverse farm, but I haven't ever hit the limit. But, I do lease limited-use items and send them back when finished. So I don't have a combine and a forage harvester at the same time, for example.

Currently on Lone Oak playing on New Farmer mode the big things I can remember: Claas Arion and frontloader, Claas Xerion, two Warrior ++ trucks, the newest Case Magnum from the hub, Claas Jaguar, all hay equipment including two balers, semi trailers (milk, silage, grain, lowloader, and flatbed bale), Hardi sprayer, the Lizard dually truck and gooseneck cattle trailer, a Kinze grain cart, a bunch of front loader tools, and probably a few more odds and ends that I'm forgetting about.

The only redundant things I have are the Warrior++ trucks. My slot count gets a little higher after harvest when I'm running slurry tankers, fertilize spreaders, and tillage and planting equipment.

ok between the comments, u guys have painted a much clearer picture for me.. so it would seem that farm building (buildings and such) is for the smaller farmer.. and it would also seem that on equipment u can have a diverse farm as long as u don't own things just to own them.. also it would seem that u will not be able to experience everything in the game at once.. like.. u wont be having sugarcane over in this field with appropriate equipment while doing cereal crops over there and beets over here each with their respective equipment.. these projects will have to be planned out to work in the needed equipment.. lease and rotate items out.. I suppose a slightly more minimalist approach to farming but honestly could have its own logic and unique challenges.. I could see it being frustrating but also not entirely impossible to overcome.. hopefully this improves with the next gen of consoles.. given the slot limitation on consoles I cant help but feel like they may have went to the build your own farm thing too early and at least console users would have been better served by a feature that doesn't tax an already taxed limitation for the platform.. does this seem like a fair summery? I know it doesn't cover all the limitations or causes of the slot problem but.. its kinda my overall take on the situation from an outside perspective

I would also like to say that I can kinda relate to having to lease things constantly.. no im not forced to by a platform limitation like u guys r which obviously makes it a much bigger deal for u guys than it is me.. but my small farming style means if I wanna do anything that cant be done with standard seeders/planters and harvesters I have to lease in.. my tractors (as dictated by my farming style) r not big enough to run ANY of the specialty equipment needed to the more unique crops

Good console map with low slots...

I think it’s all connected. The better the map, the higher the slot count.

The lower the slot count, the... less-better? the map.

So a good map with low slots... kinda doesn’t exist? Depending what you find “good” or good enough, of course.

Bingo! The added bonus being you don't have to tab through 40 vehicles when your combine is at 80% full to get to the grain cart tractor. I can't stand having equipment just for the sake of having equipment.

To add to the topic, Pacific Northwest is a nice map with a good slot count. Osina is another good looking map with a ridiculously low slot count on Farm Manager. Under 400 if I remember correctly.
