Pine Cove Farm Final Update. Minor Fixes.
If you update to this minor fixes you will need to start a new game due to the edit of the tip mask and ground collision map. However you should be able to use certain files from your old Pine Cove Farm Final save with this. The files which can be used are careerSaveGame.xml, economy.xml and vehicles.xml. Do not copy any other files into the new game save folder. This is only to be done if you have a Pine Cove Final Game save already do not do this if you are updating from a non Final version of the map or are unsure how to.
Giants Game Update V1.44 is required for the map.
No part of this map is to be edited or extracted and re-uploaded publically at all without prior permission.
Unzip the downloaded file and place just the maps zip file into a mods folder, move the 2 information text files to your desktop or somewhere safe. The map is tested log error free if you have a problem in the map look for something else as the cause and use your log.txt file for clues.
You will need Farmer_Andy’s Kotte Universal Tanker mod for FS2017 for this map. I recommend as always the map is placed in it’s own mods folder with no other maps in the folder with it.
Chopped straw v1007 module is needed for chopped straw.
Forage chaffing stage 3 is achieved on most crops with the XDisc cutter.
The map is highly optimised for my own PC systems and especially for Nvidia GTX 980ti and 1080 graphics cards. I offer no support for lower spec PC systems or graphics cards or how the map may play or function or not function. It was made for my systems and to look how I wanted it to and hold a very high framerate with many mods and installed mods running at the same time. The map has over 5 times the object count of a default game map and runs fixed higher settings for many visual improvements.
I can not guarantee that it will work or play as intended but hopefully it will for you and you will get many hours of enjoyment from it.
If you have an earlier version of the map Start A New Game for this final update. Do not copy your old save files into the new save if you want the majority of your progress back edit the new vehicle, economy and career xml files manually. I offer no support for doing so you either know how to do it or don’t.
