This is version 1.1 , want to know what version you have? Check your loading screen. This fixes a major problem with the seeding of fields.
Amber ..Inspired by the line in the song America the Beautiful, “amber waves of grain”. During the song it talks about the expanse of the American countryside and the endless wheat farms.
With that inspiration in mind I created a Macro version of America. Within you will find most of American farming represented. From the Mississippi River flood plain states to the rolling landscape of the mid-west and from the famous mountain potato fields of Idaho to the sugarbeet capital of the Americas, Michigan.
The map plays the same as default with icons, demand crops ect with 2 exceptions. There is no single player traffic (milk truck does run tho) and there are currently no missions. Also even if you decide that you need more grass than what I originally give you, a planted field with grass will not turn texture green(making field near invisible). Instead planted grass on a bought field will stay brown dirt with grass growing on it.
In the cattle area you will find plenty of room for greenhouses and a water source for “feeding” the greenhouses with water and manure. There is also a marked ridge area that you can put up a wind farm strip if you so desire. That and the dedicated grass areas are additionally marked on the map. One note on PDA, you will see that your blip on the PDA will be off sometimes a tiny tiny bit and in about half the places it will be accurate exactly. This is due to the elevation changes that this map has and how it translate into a flat map for the PDA. This is only noticeable when zoomed and in some of the map, not all.
Down in the floodplains by the port/levy area you will find the industries like in most American towns it is all along the river. You will notice a small street network with no houses and no foliage. this is for future American style or at least looking homes as they become available. All future versions of this map will be save game compatable as all that will ever be added will be models. With that in mind please keep the area where the houses will go, clear.
The starting equipment has been changed a bit to give a little more equipment but still all bottom level stuff. Careful on the mountain roads as they only recieve farm traffic and can get rough sometimes. If your bored go camping in the mountains….*hint*
