View File Exclusive Content FS17 Agrovation
 
 
After a long-term partnership with GIANTS, the innovative developer of the Farming Simulator 2017, we decided to make it an exclusive one. The result of this co-operation is a so far unparalleled complex and sustainable project – the HORSCH AgroVation expansion pack.
 
  Thus, the users of the farming simulator can play on the original 3,000-ha-farm HORSCH AgroVation in Knežmost in the Czech Republic (near Prague). For HORSCH the project is much more than just a game. In the first step HORSCH will use the Mod Pack to train the own employees on the farm. But new employees, too, will be able to become familiar with the farming processes on the farm more quickly. The next steps will be to import real GPS data from the tractors and the HORSCH machines into the game to simulate in the future how for example the plant will develop with different sowing periods.   Everyone can get the exclusive HORSCH expansion pack at the Agritechnica in the HORSCH Shop free of charge. A limited quantity will be available at the show. For those who will not manage to go to the show, the expansion pack will be available as a download in 2018

Well, I have always dreamed of farming and agriculture.  After looking for many, many long months I finally found a great spread in the black mountain area of Montana!  I have always liked the views in Montana, and now I can look at the mountain as I am drinking my coffee in the morning!  I came by this property thanks to a gentleman named Farmer Klein.  He did a great real estate video on the area and the farm, and so I decided to inquire.  After taking out an Ag loan and conducted a successful Gofundme campaign (people will give to anything on the internet!  Thanks Al Gore!) I was able to purchase the main farm plus some fields.  The main farm comes equipped with outbuildings and cross fencing for cows and pigs!  Plus, the property also comes with a sheep pen, although it is some distance from the main farm.  I have had a chance to meet a few of the locals, they are quite nice indeed.  The moving truck should be coming soon with my belongings, once I settle in I will make sure to create a video on my first day of real work!  Of course, I will need to purchase some equipment first, as the farm only came with a truck for vehicles.  At least I don't have to walk to the shop!  I will have to get a GoPro so I can do some videos on youtube.  People love farming videos!

Warning this is a bit of a rant!

So for those of you that watch Giants Facebook page, it would be no surprise to the announcement they recently made of the Horsch DLC. This DLC will be made exclusively available to those that are able to attend Agritechnica convention in Hannover, Germany.
Ok, so whats wrong with Giants/Horsch providing a free DLC – it’s great isn’t it? Freebie time!
Well, yes it is great for those that are able to get to Hannover and attend the Convention, and assuming that they don’t run out of stock.. I mean who would be happy to travel to Germany just to get a giveaway and then boom… no stock left .. oh we are so sorry…. right that never happens does it!

 
No Giants and Horsch have just possibly in one ill-conceived public relations gambit (in my opinion) taken a big step to possibly alienating a huge part of their loyal (and not so loyal) customer base.
Firstly, lets just cover the fact that it is Console only. Now, while I don’t play much on our Console, and certainly not FS17, many do. And moreover those that bought the Season Pass are seemingly getting screwed over again by not providing the pack for console. (Note .. obviously this may actually be rectified in any future release of the pack in 2018 but for now no mention of console support has been stated).
Secondly, while the DLC admittedly looks good with a good range of equipment, there will be many, many, MANY, loyal fans of FS17 that can’t get to Hannover and have no chance of getting a copy (Mind you – unless it is copy protected and protected with individual serial numbers, expect it to be ‘unofficially’ available soon after).

 
EDIT NOTE: Apparently Horsch have stated to one of my Facebook Subscribers, that the DLC will be made available free of charge at some time in 2018…. Let’s wait and see, but I hope so!

To help generate a few more players to the pc-sg multi-play server I have been busy setting up equipment and animals on the server ready to issue this challenge. 

The Challenge

Make a 6 million $ profit between now and 31st December 2017 

Sound easy?....Maybe maybe not.

No new equipment can be brought and there is no starting money and no crops in storage.

There is plenty of equipment but this has to be shared around the 5 farms and BGA.

Animals have feed for a few days.

Each farm owns a few fields around the farm or BGA, if as a team you decide you need more fields then post in the worksheet thread and we will deduct the cost of the field from the running total.

There is seed and fertilizer at the shop and once that runs out you will have to wait until you have cash to buy more.

No Forestry

Return vehicles and equipment at the end of your session and clean them.

I will be creating a work sheet page for players to post their progress and what jobs still need doing, you will need to work as a team to stand a chance on completing this challenge.

Above all this is about have fun & meeting members, any one is welcome to stream their game play, just give a mention to pc-sg.

Some details may be changed to make it more playable or interesting.

Main crop Farm


Fields:-1,2,3,4,15,14,13

Pig Farm


Fields :-7,8,9,10

Cows


Fields :-24,25,27,22

Sheep Farm


Fields :-24,25,27,22

BGA


Fields:- 17,18,19

I had a late night phone call last night, actually, it lasted into the early morning. While we've talked several times since my wife departed, this call was the one that I've been waiting for, she is on her way home. Well, preparing to come home. Not all good news, there is a bit of a storm headed to SE Texas. We've had them before, I'm sure it won't be too devastating. The kids are securing their homes and going to take a late spring vacation.




Church, another one not for me... I think the first one we visited is where we'll end up. Girls, chickens.




I had an idea! I'll have some more magic greenhouses installed for her return. Yep, that's a great idea. My two last fields still aren't ready to be weeded so I have some time. I spent the day, although lazily, clearing some trees so that I can line up the new greenhouses. The boy came by for a couple of hours, he brought fresh iced tea... almost like what I've served him, but he did try. I think he saw that I wasn't going to put him to work, that I was just going to visit... it didn't matter. He pulled some gloves out of his back pocket and kept engaged in conversation while he continued where I'd left off. What a good seed. I chuckled and we ended up getting one trailer loaded including cleaning up the stumps and picking up the wood chips left over. I said my goodbyes, it was getting late and I left for the mill.




I returned to the farm and all the equipment was cleaned and put away. I'm still hoping it's an elf, but more likely it's just the boy.

Mavericksfarm  is a 4x flat map with 21 large fields and allot of nice flat room for

all these nice placeable mods out there.

The map is made with the bigbud in mind,so it became a map for bigtoys.

5 additional fruits oat , rye , triticale , spelt , millet.




Plenty enough to do on this map.

There is enough grass on the map to cut so you can easely have enough to keep the animals alive during the winter (seasons)

Milk don't sell automaticly, so you will need the kotte universal pack to transport your milk.




Version 2 UPDATE









This was my first map and my first steps in map modding, now i know how much work this is i respect all modders even more.

This map was a learning proces , i hope you enjoy the map.

I have to say I am actually enjoying the 24 days.  Sure its alot of the same thing but the map I am on has such diverse fields that each field is very much different from the last and has its own challenges.

While the recordings are only up to day 6 and 7 I am up to day 14 or so with my game play.  To think under a "normal' 6 or 9 day season that would put me in early autumn or mid summer but instead I am still in mid spring and planting wondering if the ground temp will ever reach 50* for corn and soybeans.

My first go at the 24 Day Seasons Challenge got a bit side tracked. You see there is a peculiarity of the map maker psyche that compels us to rip our maps apart after a few hours of game play because we just thought of a better way to bring our farms to life. Sometimes we spot something in our own maps that drives us back into GE other times we something in another map makers work that pushes us over the edge. I used to think that the Giants Editor was a way to make Farming Simulator more enjoyable but I’ve come to the realization that for myself, and I’m guessing for other map makers as well, Farming Simulator is merely a justification for all the time we spend in GE. While I’ve spent well over 500 hours building Nagce Valley it’s likely that I’ve spent less than a tenth of that actually playing the map, and I’ve heard enough other map builders make similar comments to come to believe that the modders fate may well be cast in stone.

Seasons brings a new life to the game as playing a LONG season length.  No more grind  of plow, plant, harvest, repeat.  This topic will introduce some things to consider when setting out on a long season game play.

Crop planting and field management: Serious planning needs to occur as to what crops you will be putting in what fields.  As once you plant your crops its going to be 48-72 game days before harvest time.  Plant to little of something and the window to plant will pass and your stuck with what you have for a full game year until you can do anything else or plow it under and leave the field dormant.  Look at the seasons planting schedule as to what you can plant and when.   Can you squeeze two harvests out of a field?  With the Mid-West US geo it is possible to plant winter wheat, harvest the wheat in early summer and still have time to plant corn or soybeans for a fall harvest.  if things work out well you can then rotate the field again into wheat/barley or canola for the following spring.  Not all geo mods will let you do this so know your geo and plan around it.

"Don't Feed The Trolls". Everyone has heard that phrase before. It is a undeniable if unpleasant fact that there are people who delight in disliking,trolling and occasionally bullying YouTube creators and Live streamers. This is what I like to call "the dark side of YouTube" It is a topic that no one who does "how to" videos about YouTube ever talks about. Having been a content creator for nearly four years, I thought I would give you some of my thoughts on this subject.




Dislikes




I never understood this particular "ranking" mechanic on YouTube, If you don't like a video don't watch it. It makes not one bit of difference to me if you don't like my videos, I make them firstly for me and for fun. Having said that, I do try to make videos people enjoy, but that is not my sole motivation. Instead of a dislike, I would rather see a comment telling me what it is you disliked. I may listen I may not, but at least you made the effort to tell me what you didn't like. At the end of the day a "like" and a "dislike" are the same thing, a view on the video. Thanks for watching.




Trolls




It is an unpleasant fact of life on the internet that there are people who derive pleasure from insulting and degrading your work. They have their own motivations, whether it be ignorance, jealousy, insecurity or just the fact that they think they are funny, clever and cool. I don't do well with trolls. I violate the "don't feed the trolls" suggestion constantly and nothing will send me off on a venom filled foul mouthed rant quicker than some idiot who thinks it's cool to tear down my work. I don't mind being called an idiot, in fact most of my channel is built around that very premise, but it is entirely a different matter to be vulgar and insulting. Woe to those who insult my friends as that is something I will NEVER stand for.
