    Workers can Work

    My hat is off to Moltoy and whomever he mentions in his video. Changing your video setting to vsync=off and setting the frame rate to 30 definitely helps the worker consistency a LOT!!..I am getting averages of 99% and at times 100% on worker completion. This is a big improvement. Now I only have to clean up random small patches the workers miss. Before they were missing entire sections, and kept stuttering on the turn around. This was also increasing the worker cost substantially. Now the automation is almost playable. I have only tested static implements (ones attached directly to the tractor, not the towed ones) and looking forward to the bigger options. The real test will be the potato harvester. This is by fare the worst implement to use AI on. You spend a lot of time cleaning up what the worker misses. And the worker abandons the tractor once the harvester is full, which is extremely time consuming to remedy. Since we're on the topic, I think the developers would be better off if the would use on field turning with the AI instead of the turning it does now. I think there would be greater stability and less collisions, and far better accuracy.

    Poor Response to Breakage

    I cannot begin to express my disappointment in the fact that bail selling functionality was broken in patch 1.1.5 and still no reaction to resolve the issue that I can see. Sacrificing customer satisfaction for profitability will cost you revenues every time.. Players don't forget and will move on to something else.

    PC update 1.1.5 out now

    With this patch, Greenhouse 3 is now working.. And the labels on everything, nice touch. Thanks James and everybody!!!

    Feeding cows correctly

    Currently, I have found the best and fastest way is to bail everything. Wrap half of your grass so it ferments into silage and the drop 1 Straw bail, 1 Grass bail, and 1 silage bail into the WP6. I use the grass bunker to store all the bails since they fall over when you log, so it keeps the mess contained. Since the bunker doesn't ferment, thought it should be useful somehow.

    JCB Loader

    I would like to see the JCB front end loader incorporated in the game. If I could figure out how to mod, I'd add it myself.
  6. This harvester will not shut down when worker finishes a field and is unloaded. Everything else I have used does shut down once the worker finishes the field.

    When I attempted to use the Fendt724 Tractor mod by EpicPrydaMods it was a disaster. Loading the mod worked fine, but the moment I purchased the tractor, the game time went crazy. It started counting both hours and minutes every minute, and the hours counted past 24 and the minutes counted past 59. It had counted to 27:76 before I stopped the game and unloaded the mod. Everything appeared to go back to normal once that happened.

    Tractors are underpowered

    Agreed, the JCB, which sports that fastest speeds I know of to date, will run 42mph. If I hook an empty trailer to it, it slows to 14mph and when I load the trailer, it gets even slower. Relogging has not made a difference. This is the JCB 4220 with the Akpril Masse C-1500 counterweight and the Wielton PRC-2B/W 10 Ton trailer. With this configuration empty it still should achieve 42mph, it just make take it a bit longer to wind up, Even full it should achieve the same speed, but take longer to wind up and longer to stop.
  9. If you have a harvester harvesting a field with Straw cut turned on and a worker, if you save, close and login back in, the harvester will resume work, but switches to straw mode. This is very frustrating.

    Special Silo?!?

    The encyclopedia make reference to, and I quote "the collected grass will have to be transported to a special silo on the farm and then you wait until it ferments." Anyone have any clue where this "Special silo" is? I would most definitely prefer it over wrapping bails of grass. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Empty Bailer Function

    You really should have a function to empty the bailer of a partial bail, or allow it to change between grass and straw as the forager wagon does. I have temporarily solved my issue by having 2 bailers, one for grass and one for straw.
  12. When you exit a vehicle, the trailer loading/unloading stops? Why?!? Especially under conveyor belts? Can we fix this in the future?
  13. Can anyone tell me how to make this work? The encyclopedia states that each harvester has a forager function which controls how the straw is ejected, but I cannot figure out how to control it.

    Empty Bailer Function

    Well the first is fantasy, and the second reality. Honestly, I prefer reality when it comes to simulators, no matter how inconvenient it may be

    Forager Functions on harvesters

    Agreed, but in FS17, you can actually turn the forage function off. Perhaps that's what he's referring to.
  16. Nevermind, LOL, I figured it out. It was so simple it escaped me...

    Special Silo?!?

    OK, do the actually ferment the grass into silage?

    Time to retire

    Some of the comments I see make me realize that some of you may be lacking the knowledge of exactly what happens in a project of this magnitude. I don't have the time or space to explain it, but my experience is that gamers are the absolute hardest audience to please. They all usually want instant satisfaction, have no patience, are excessively brutal when things aren't they way they perceive them to be and expect flawless perfection. There are a LOT of issues still to be addressed, but then looking back through all the patch notes I see that almost 3 times that have been resolved. This game is still in its infancy. I'm glad that I found it so early. I can find issues, make suggestions and know I'm being heard. I have put in many tickets thus far and every one has met with response in just hours instead of days. If you're unhappy, then go... but bashing developers and nit picking over one or two specific items is ridiculous IMHO. Myself, I can't wait to see what else I can find or what comes next.

    Tactors Need Repairs Way Too Often

    It's been my experience that when you play the "My First Farm" option, things need repair quite often. But playing the "Free Farming" option, I can go for days without so much as a scratch.

    Cow Fodder

    The encyclopedia states that "Fodder is a special, carefully balanced animal food consisting of two ingredients: previously prepared silage and straw. This is incorrect. Cow fodder is created by mixing Silage, Straw and GRASS in a MetalTech WP6 device.
  21. Sortileger

    Empty Bailer Function

    I believe the patch resolved the one row and stop issue. My workers will completely bail a whole field now without issues thus far. And I see where I have been confused. Cow fodder consists of Grass, silage and straw. The Encyclopedia only refers to silage and straw. My mistake. I had to buy the Metaltech WP6 to figure this out. So the grass bunker is just that, a bunker to hold grass.

    Forager Functions on harvesters

    I think he was referring to stopping it all together. It might be nice to have, but as long as cut straw is available, it is always useful.

    Empty Bailer Function

    Probably, which would be fine because you can dump it. I have tried the grass fermenting bunker, but still not sure if that works, which would alleviate the need to bail grass all together. But the point is in the real world, bailers allow you to flush partial bales. If this is just a game ignoring the rules of real life, then fine, I have a work around. But if this is a simulator, then the bailer should be able to dump partial bales so you can change the source. I am grateful that the bailer unloads itself and continues. There are some models on FS17 that don't even do that

    Empty Bailer Function

    That's fine if you do it manually, but workers won't know to stop if they don't have enough to finish the bail.

    Thanks for the info, is greatly appreciated
