    FS19 not impressed so far

    The thing I'm looking forward to is the new hard mode. I can see a lot of story lines in that . As a small time YouTuber story is what I look for😉 I for one hope that Seasons comes out early, I'm one of the players that can't play without it, I'm trying one series without and it's not as much fun for me.

    FS19 not impressed so far

    I could be wrong. But I believe the cotton will have a different impression on most. Both poplars and sugar cane are painfully slow crops to harvest (my opinion) and after planting/harvesting one of each I was pretty much done with them. However, we've seen cotton before...but haven't always had the correct equipment to harvest it. So I believe with Giants adding it to FS19 we'll also see the correct equipment needed and that (hopefully) will leave a better impression on users.
  6. I am looking forward to FS19 and cant wait for it to come out but what I have seen so far does nothing for me See my photoes

    It's that time of year

    During a hot summer you get a lot of harvesters and round balers going on fire If it is a wet summer you get a lot of grain driers going on fire The above pictures are old ones and have to say there is a great improvement - Farmers are much better looking after their equipmend Oh by the way I am the lad with the white hat in the photoes

    I have a challenge too. Use the beet harvester that is part of starting equipment on field one,(default crop with out seasons). Then find out the only root crops the BGA takes is potato. Or, pull the Krone XDisc 620 out of the lower storage area to chop the wheat on field two and find it doesn't fit between the fence and silage wall.

    If you think you are good at FS play this on hard with seasons and don't look for the nuggets😉
  12. As I mentioned in the previous tour update, the honey do list has been growing at a pace faster than I’ve been able to keep up with. But it seems as if everything that needs to be on the list, has been placed on the list and a hard days work last Saturday has things looking pretty good. There’s a good chance I won’t be left at home with chores to do while my wife enjoys vacation without me. LOL Of course, she wouldn’t do that…right? Let’s get right into the tour update so I’ll have some time to get back to the list. As you can tell from the updated tour map below, the color magenta is slowly, but surely beginning to take a bigger presence on the map. While we haven’t yet reached the half-way mark, we’re very, very close. History of City Founded by the Romans in 15 BC, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of Zurich. It is located in north-central Switzerland and has an estimated population of just over 400,000. Today Zurich is a leading golabl city and among the world’s largest financial centers despite having a relatively small population. The city is home to a large number of financial institutions and banking companies. The official language of Zurich is German. History of Country Switzerland is a sovereign state in Europe and consists of 26 cantons (similar to states) with the city of Bern serving as the seat of the federal authorities. Switzerland is bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. Switzerland has existed in its current form since the adoption of the Swiss Federal Constitution in 1848. However, the oldest traces of human existence in Switzerland dates back about 150,000 years. History of Airport The Zurich Airport, known as Kloten Airport, is the largest international airport of Switzerland and the principle hub of Swiss International Airlines. History of Airline Swiss International Air Lines is the national airline of Switzerland and operates scheduled services in Europe and North America, South America, Africa and Asia. Its main hub is Zurich Airport with a focus city operation in Geneva. Swiss operates a fleet of 86 aircraft of which all but 10 are Airbus. They operate 10 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Flight Briefing SWR1066 LEBL – LSZH Planned Fuel – 15,000 lbs Planned Altitude – 36,000 Distance – 462nm Flight Time – 1hr, 45min Route: DALI2P DALIN UN870 MAXIR UN853 MOBLO UZ662 LAMUR Z57 DOPIL DCT Flight Journal As we’ve officially entered the European segment of our world tour and while we’re still not at the half-way point, there’s still a level of accomplishment to be pleased about. The next few flights will have us visiting Switzerland (next stop), Germany, England and Norway. We’ll actually visit three different cities/airports in Norway before turning and heading towards Greenland. But before we can get to Greenland, we must depart Barcelona for Zurich. Lined up and waiting for our take-off clearance. It’s a hot day today in Barcelona and our travelers are ready for a cooler (hopefully) stay in Zurich. But then again, all of Europe is currently suffering under heat wave conditions, but thankfully the hotel has air conditioning. Up and away from Barcelona. Heading out over the beautiful Balearic Sea towards the South of France. Snow in the Alps…that’s a welcome sight. With the recent high temperatures, I highly doubt there is that much snow in the Alps. But it’s still pretty to look at and I can confirm (living near the Rocky Mountains) that our high mountain peaks will still have snow on the very top usually through much of July and into August. Beginning our descent into Zurich. Runway in sight The Swiss countryside. I hope to visit Switzerland someday in real life. My wife actually lived in Switzerland for several years before we met. Short final view from the flight deck. Another Swiss Air just pushing back from their gate and about to depart Zurich. Parked up at our gate and in the process of deboarding.

    Banco Island

    View File Banco Island Welcome to Banco Island (Bank Island in English) located just a few miles south of Ponta Delgada, of the island Sao Miguel in the Azores... An entrepreneurish billionaire, on a whim, has recently transformed one of the rocky "islands" south of Sao Miguel into, of all things, a farm... what was a passing fancy for him is now yours... Are you up to the challenge? This map is based on the general concept and basic dem of the old FS 2011 map, Beaver Island V1 by JD6820Driver, but totally re-imagined and redesigned for FS 2017. It is designed to be different from the typical FS style map... As in the Azores, sheep are very popular, they are present on this island as well... there is no grass trough to feed them with, the grazing mod handles this for you. Also, there is no water trough to fill, as the pasture is on a 45 degree slope... so the water trough mod handles the watering for you as well... if/when the grass dies down, or if/when your sheep population outgrows the capacity of the pasture, you can supplement their grass diet with hay bales. The bale shredder feeder is located at the top of the hill right next to the large windmill, which powers your farm and facilities... There is no area to mow for making hay, the slopes would be too steep for that anyways, so you must have your bales shipped in on the daily ferry... via the buy bales mod. You have 8 hay bales in the shed now, to start you off. There are chickens on the island as well... roaming around the lower areas around your farm house... they are good though, and lay all their eggs inside the coop, to keep them away from roving seabirds... You can grow anything here except for sugarcane, however, in keeping with the realistic economy and market of the nearby islands, the only crop they care about is silage... so, you have been left a nice new forage harvester to make chaff out of the corn... the mower header will also chaff up the grain crops you may want to plant... There is a fermenting facility buried in the side of the steep hill, next to your storage area... it is totally automatic, dump your chaff in, get silage out... it will hold up to 400000 L of silage, so can also act as temporary storage for you till a better price comes... The supply ferry shows up each day (unless it is bad weather, then it is a no show) bringing whatever supplies you have ordered and accepting any silage you have ready to sell... Any eggs you collect from the chickens can be sold down on the dock as well... the ferry commander will take them with him when he leaves each day... Same with any wool pallets you have... they will spawn at the service door of the underground facility, you can carry them down to the warehouse on the dock to sell... There is a fuel sell on the dock... not cheap, but they keep it full for you to purchase as needed... Additionally, there is a small, simple BGA facility under the hill behind the fermenting facility... this supplies electricity to the nearby relay station, which has only a single solar panel for it's power... your BGA will accept some of your available silage, also any rootcrops you decide to raise, and will provide you with digestate that you can use to fertilize your fields with for free... (highly recommend the BGA extension mod, as this will override the game limitations which prevent other crops from being placed in the BGA and will make the BGA a much more realistic and profitable endeavor) You start off with most of the equipment you need to work this challenging island... the tractors, though only 2, are powerful, as needed for the steep slopes here... Also, a small bit of seed and liquid fertilizer is provided to get you going, more can be purchased (as pallets) at the dock... same as any additional equipment you may want/need... This map is fully Seasons ready, a few of the bushes and 1 tree will actually change color with the seasons... but, the weather is warm here year round, so no snow... but, there is a long growing season... Disclaimer: to avoid unforeseen issues and conflicts, please have ONLY this map in the mod folder as having multiple maps in the folder will cause issues as the game loads all the scripts from all the maps, including the active one... This will be the only version of the map, unless someone finds a game breaking bug, shouldn't since it's been fully tested. However, any things you don't like or would like to be improved will have to be for your own private editions. Happy farming! Notice: Since this map will end up being uploaded everywhere, no matter my wishes, please at least include the ENTIRE description and CREDITS when you do... by doing this, you show respect for all the hard work of the great many modders whose work goes into maps such as this one...

  15. I downloaded a mod for playing on another's server. Specifically, the mod is a John Deere 7000/7010 tractor. Using this mod in a SP game, I disliked the way the tractor behaved, mainly the buyable optional suitcase style weights had no mass. Some advice I got was to either (1) edit the mass for the weights in the i3d file or (2) alter the center of gravity. Doing a "find" search for weight, the only weight text I can find is the following: <TransformGroup name="Front Axle" translation="0 0.74 1.58484" scale="0.85 0.85 0.9" nodeId="537"/> <Shape shapeId="73" name="frontWeights" translation="0 -0.484048 -1.64453" rotation="-1.98184 -0 0" scale="0.85 0.85 0.95" nodeId="538" materialIds="54" castsShadows="true" receiveShadows="true"/> <Shape shapeId="74" name="Weight Bracket" translation="0 -0.437488 1.69448" scale="0.7 1 1.5" nodeId="539" materialIds="71" castsShadows="true" receiveShadows="true"/> <TransformGroup name="Step" translation="0.647 0.305922 1.83988" visibility="false" nodeId="540"> Unfortunately, I am not fluent doing this kind of edit. Could someone assist? Thanks

    The best map for FS15. To bad nobody didnt convert it for FS17.
  24. Shakey

    Grle Converter

    I got it to work a forum member at FS-UK had the answer here is what needed to be done. It works, but now it needs to be in an old 8+3 format folder I think (the old DOS format, where folders and files could only be 8 characters long plus the file extension). For example make a folder in the root of a hard drive (C:\) and call it something less than eight characters long (eg grle). Copy your GRLE files in there, plus the converter and cmd (batch) files. Drag your GDM or GRLE file onto the convert.cmd file and it should convert.
  25. As the weeks of summer quickly tick by, so do our flight legs. With a third of the tour safely in the books, we’re closing in on the half-way mark. Life of course is busy, busy, busy for me right now. With less than two full weeks before my wife and I fly to Belgium, I’m struggling to keep up with the honey-do list. It seems for every item I manage to check off, there are a couple more items added. At this rate, I’m really not sure when it all will get done. But the good news for me is I did manage to convince her that we don’t start anything new until after we return, so for now the tasks more or less all involve finishing up a few small projects and then just focusing on things that MUST be done prior to leaving. But of course, this brings up the dreaded “S” word….yes….shopping! Wish me luck! I hope you enjoyed the write up from tour leg #17. I can’t wait to find another reason to fly into Madeira. I think (for now) this has been one of my favorite legs. As I had never flown into the island before, the visual approach was slightly stressful. Now of course if you are not a flight simmer, perhaps you can’t understand how a flight made in a simulator can be stressful. I guess that’s just the immersion and perhaps the closest thing I can compare this to with other simulation based games might be the stress we feel when we’re running late on an ETS2 or ATS delivery job or perhaps the final days of fall in Farming Simulator and the weather forecast shows rain, but you still have over half of your crops still on the field. It’s a good level of stress and again it just further adds to the immersion. After all, I think that’s one of the reasons we all enjoy our simulation based games so much. History of City Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia, as well as the second most populous municipality of Spain. Founded as a Roman City in approx. 15 BC, in the middle ages Barcelona became the capital of the County of Barcelona and later merged with the Kingdom of Aragon. Today Barcelona is the home to around 4.8 million people, making it the sixth most populous urban area in the European Union after Paris, London and Madrid. History of Country Spain is a sovereign state mostly located on the Iberian Peninsula in Europe. With an area of 195, 360 square miles, Spain is the largest country in Southern Europe, the second largest country in Western Europe and the European Union and the fourth largest country in the European continent. History of Airport The Barcelona-El Prat International Airport is located 7.5 miles southwest of the center of Barcelona. It is the second largest and second busiest airport in Spain behind Madrid-Barajas Airport and the 7th busiest in all of Europe. History of Airline Vueling Airlines is a Spanish low-cost airline based in Barcelona with hubs in Barcelona-El Prat and Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport in Rome. Its name comes from the Spanish word vuelo, which means flight. It is the largest airline in Spain by fleet size and the number of destinations it serves. Vueling serves over 100 destinations in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Our travelers and crew have enjoyed time on the beach, a few diving excursions and just the relaxation of not being under a tight schedule. But it’s time we resume the tour and head into the continent of Europe. Next stop…Spain! We’re shuttling this Vueling Airbus A320 over to Barcelona. But before we can depart, we need fuel. Myself, my first officer and cabin crew typically arrive about an hour before our flight to get the aircraft ready for departure. Our travelers have now made their way to the airport and are in the process of boarding. But of course, we can’t leave until all bags have been loaded and the ground crew here are doing a great job helping us stick to our scheduled departure.

    Are You A Flight Sim Enthusiast?

    I love FSX and fly whenever I have time, which is not nearly as much as previously, due to getting mired down in GE (quite addictive) editing and making FS maps... I have made several custom airports and a few islands for my FSX and have several addon scenery packs as well as over 200 cool planes to fly... ranging from the F-22 down to a payware 737...
  28. Our next destination has somewhat been on my Flight Sim “Bucket List” for some time. The small island airport of Funchal-Madeira features one of the more challenging approaches of any airport we’ll be encountering on our tour. The airport is on the list of the 10 most dangerous airports in the world. If you would like to watch a YouTube video featuring an Airbus A320 making the approach and landing into Funchal, watch this video. While the majority of our airport destinations have been on default P3D scenery, I’m pleased to be able to feature the Aerosoft payware scenery for the Funchal-Madeira airport. This will both enhance my immersion of the approach and landing, but also give us more more to look at as well. In addition, this is also the first time I’ve ever attempted this approach and landing. As I previously mentioned, Funchal-Madeira has been on my bucket list for some time, but as I didn’t have the scenery, I wanted to wait before I attempted it. Hopefully we’ll get our Airbus A320 on the ground safely as we begin the European portion of our tour. Speaking of Europe. You’re reading this edition of our long tour on Wednesday, 8 August and in two weeks, + 1 day my wife and I will head out to Denver International Airport for our British Airways flight from Denver to London Heathrow. We’re both very much ready for our European vacation to Antwerp Belgium. We’ll spend one week in Belgium and one week in the English countryside before returning to Denver. For the most part, I plan on being mostly unplugged from social media during the two weeks abroad. However, I may occasionally post some pictures and comments in Discord. But no guarantees. But enough about all that…let’s get this journey started. I can’t wait to attempt this approach. History of City Funchal is the largest city, municipal seat and the capital of Portugal’s Autonomous Region of the island of Madeira. The city has a population of 111,892 which makes it the 6th largest city in Portugal and has been the capital of Madeira for more than five centuries. Because of its high cultural and historical value, Funchal is one of Portugal’s main tourist destinations. History of Country Madeira is an archipelago of Portugal and lies in the North Atlantic Ocean southwest of Portugal. The total population is estimated to be 267,785. Madeira was claimed by Portuguese sailors in 1419 and settled sometime after 1420. The archipelago is considered to be the first territorial discovery of the exploratory period of the Age of Discovery. Today, Madeira is a popular year-round resort, being visited every year by about 1.4 million tourists (almost 5 times the population). History of Airport The Madeira International Airport Cristiano Ronaldo is located 8.2 miles east-northeast of the regional capital of Funchal. Officially opened in 1964, the airport runways have been updated multiple times over the years. Often considered to be the Kai Tak of Europe because of its singular approach to runway 05, the runway was extended to its current 9,124 foot length using a concrete platform partly over the ocean. In 2016, it was announced that the airport would be renamed Madeira International Airport Cristiano Ronaldo in honor of Madeira native football player Cristiano Ronaldo. History of Airline Air Arabia Maroc (not to be confused with Royal Air Maroc) is a Moroccan low-cost airline, setup as a joint venture between various Moroccan investors and Air Arabia. The low-cost carrier was launched on 29 April 2009 and started operations that same year with its maiden flight serving Casablanca to London Stansted. Still a small airline, operating 7 Airbus A320’s serving Brussels, London, Marseille, Milan and Paris. Flight Briefing MAC1066 GMAD – LPMA Planned Fuel – 16,520 lbs Planned Altitude – 36,000 Distance – 403nm Flight Time – 1hr, 30min Route: Flight Journal As previously mentioned, the past few legs of our world tour have been fast paced. Since leaving Cape Town, we’ve spent less than 48 hours in each of the locations we’ve landed and both our travelers and crew are starting to grow a bit weary and I believe we all could benefit from slowing the pace down slightly. I believe our stay on the island of Madeira will do wonders for travelers and crew alike. One really couldn’t ask for better flying weather for this leg. We have some mid afternoon clouds starting to build in Morocco. We’re loading the fuel needed for the 90 minute flight onto our Airbus A320. Our passengers have arrived. And so has the luggage Time to pushback. Take-off clearance received and acknowledged. Let’s Go! Off we go into the wild blue yonder… We’ve made our turn to join the departure and the airport is just off the right side. Another turn before heading out into the North Atlantic. Goodbye Africa Cruising at Flight Level 360 Nice and simple livery for the A320 The island of Madeira coming into view as we descend into the area. The runway at LPMA just to the left. Our approach takes us west of the island and then back around. Island view The airport just off to our right side. Making our final turn on the visual approach for runway 05. We have the runway in sight and we’re cleared to land runway 05 at LPMA. Safely on the ground at Madeira.

It was nice to be able to check this airport off my flight sim bucket list and I’ll certainly be returning here for more flights down the road. Our group will stay here for several days before departing for Barcelona, Spain. The overall progress of the tour is coming along nicely. The next leg is a little over 1000 miles, but then we hit a series of really short hops of just a few hundred miles each. I plan to crank out a few of these flights in quick fashion so I can continue with two sessions per week while I’m on vacation. Once I return from vacation in mid September, I’ll resume flying the tour legs and hopefully will be able to increase the blog writings to three per week just to try to wrap up the tour around the time of the actual event.
