Early-Access-Update Release v0.4.0 - Grassland Part II

    • Early-Access-Update Release v0.4.0 - Grassland Part II

      The grassland update v0.4.0 adds the Claas Direct Disc 520 cutterbar and a Strautmann Giga-Vitesse 4401 loader wagon to the game.

      Fruit types
      From now on multiple fruit types can be filled into the same trailer allowing you to collect grass, silage, hay and straw at the same time. Select the difficulty level of traders in the options menu under “Gameplay” ➞ ”Sale Mode”. Depending on the setting you will get different prices for mixed loads.

      The existing quest “Bring in the hay” has been split. After tedding you get two new quests, allowing you to decide if you want to press the hay into bales or collect it with the loader wagon.

      We have added multiple new commands. If you enter a command without any parameters it will show a info text in the console with all the available parameters.

      If the working width of the Liner 500 isn’t enough for you, xyzspain has a much bigger one for you to use

      And if the Hammer CornKing is too big, you can use the small 3 meter Rabe Unia seeder combination from deutz62 06

      Hi everyone!

      I woundering when metric system (like liters) comes or have I missed it in settings ? No must for me, but I´m woundering because I live in sweden =)

      Thank you for everything MBB.

      I love what you are doing to the farming games genre =)
      Hi Bemingo88,

      it is already there but only for german language. Looks like when you are playing in english language there is a mix of the different units. There are two threads I know where people are talking about that behaviour:

      Mixed units (galons, kilometers, ...) in not german language
      Wet and dry Gallons or customary unit silliness vs. imperial and metric unit logic.
