Knuston Farm is a farm about quarter of a mile away from my house, they farm on land that is slightly hilly with large open fields. They predominately grow the usual Wheat, Barley and Canola and some times beans, its a big farm and part of a larger group that farm around different parts within a 10 mile-ish radius. This map has carefully been made to replicate the terrain, layout and feel of real life.
I have done this by using tools such as Google and Photoshop, knowing the default map is 2km by 2km, I was able to use Google images in Photoshop to depict layers to help quickly create a scale map making sure everything is spot on.
Need to know
This map was finished off using the new version of Giants editor and will require your game to be updated with the latest patch BETA. Having a quick search in the forum will guide you to the right place. This map and as always has been aimed at creating luscious scenery full of greenery just like in life, so the use of trees, bushes and hedges is very high and in fact there is near on or about 3000 trees in this map, so please understand that a decent computer will be needed. Though with that in mind the latest patch helps massively.
This version has a setup more closer to that of my FS2011 version, I have ditched the mill/Industrial zone. I have done this because of space and other ideas and not to mention there isn’t a mill or industrial area in real life within the area, that said the farm layout and size means putting the sell area and as a grain dryer means there is a reason to use and isn’t to out of character. The animal zones are however all separated and the shop is at the mansion house call it a working from home business.
