Welcome to Amazon Islands Farm, located in the middle of the mighty Amazon River, Brazil, just a few miles inland from the ocean...
You are now the proud owner of a small group of islands in the river, left by a group of environmentalist farmers who began an experiment, then abandoned it... the river is wide, the climate hot and rainy, but there is opportunity here to make money and a long growing season...
Grab your sandals and get to work at Amazon Islands Farm!
You start out with all the 11 fields owned, along with 3 grass meadows, there are no missions as you are the only one here...
You have been given a small bit of equipment to get you going (users with the DLCs get a little bonus) scattered about on some of the islands... there are a couple of ferries left by the previous owners which you have unlimited use of to carry your equipment and produce from island to island... you are responsible, however, for your own fuel... (you will need the included version of the ferry, edited for use with this map... any other will NOT work)
You have some animals to start with, and some crops in the silos as a little bonus, but get to work caring for them or they will die.
The fps clipdistance mod is built in, so you can park all your mods in the buildings without impacting the fps of the game...
Bulk priced pigfood and seeds may be purchased at the port island, bulk fertilizer is available at the main island and the arable island, regular priced seeds in small bags are available at the same locations as the bulk fertilizer...
All the standard animal types are here on the map... the sheep and cows each are on their own island where they benefit from the grazing mod, which has been built into this map... No additional mods needed in the mod folder for the grazing mod. Pigs are on their own island as well, chickens at the main island...
This map also incorporates the enhanced chickens mod, built in, so no additional mods needed for it as well. Produce lots of eggs, or breed chickens for sale at the port island, the choice is yours.
The water trough mod is also built in, for ALL animals, including the enhanced chickens.
There is a special bale storage area for HD bales on the main island... works the same as the other bale storage areas...
You start out with some of each type of animal, but no water in their troughs... it's hot out here, take care of your animals right away or they will die...
Also, there are some crops left over in the storage silos, (but no bales) which you can use to get you going...
You do not have a lot of equipment, so use it wisely...
This map is fully Seasons ready, with a snowmask and a custom GEO...
Placeables will NOT work on this map, due to the mapwide collision for the ferry to run on... however, there is a section of clear space provided at the port island where placeables have been enabled... (The placeable mod FS17_Manureshop.zip Version 126.96.36.199 will be required to be in the mod folder and active at first game start if you wish to have the buyable manure available nearby the two provided greenhouses... failure to have this at game start will prevent it from being added later on, no other version will work)
Disclaimer: this is a highly detailed map, using many different scenery objects and several custom foliage layers to achieve visual realism, and as such will require a strong, high spec PC to run... especially if you have many mods on the farm. The only solution to this issue is to not use any mods and/or turn the settings down. Additionally, 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.
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...
