Just to give you an idea as to how many trees i have been adding to this map. These pictures represent about half of the tree lines and woods.

Looks really good. I hope it works well. The Autumn Woods map on the Giants ModHub has a lot of your buildings and has several wooded areas like this but is laggy as all get out. I hope that you have better luck.

Well it has been running good on my system which is a higher end laptop but it's about 4 years old.  It is a 4x map so I'm sure that some people will have problems with it.  I'm hoping though to get it running pretty good for most people

62 Fields so far have field boundaries on them (Blue) with many more to go.  I really wounder if the GE number system can handle a field that is in the 3 digits??

If I'm right then there is 52 more fields to put field boundaries on so a total field count of 114 fields

It should handle 3 digit numbers but , if not make them grass field (unnumbered)

If it doesn't do 3 digits then the remaining 15 fields I will probably leave bare as fields that just were not planted.

Spent some time making a new barn for one of the farms.  This is a real life farm.

Thanks to the both of you.  It makes it easier to make these farms realistic when they are made from real farms.  It helps tremendously being able to make buildings.

First County Line, then Mills County, and now this. Once this is out I'm not sure how I am supposed to manage all these different farms? In all seriousness, I'm excited to see this come along. I'm a Northwest Ohio boy, so this should be another excellent map.

I will just be glad when this map is finished.  There are alot of great maps out there and I just hope to add to the selection for people to enjoy.

May I ask if you got a link to the starter map you started with before it became this amazing piece of art?

I no longer have the starter map or a link to it.  My suggestion would be to download someones completed 4x map and then remove everything.

What grain bin system are you going to use at the main farm? Take care in your selection as some have pipes running through other pipes and etc which is not very realistic. This goes for not have fans on the grain bins themselves. I like the added fan noise for both the fan and the dryer. One map has a feature in which the dryer fan can be turned off and on.

Look forward to your finished product!

There is no main farm and is no main bin system.  I will probably incorporate it into one of the 18 farms.  I'll use my own bins that I maid that use and air system to transfer grain from the dryer to the bin.  Other then this I am relying on peiple using the placeable bins that are filled with an augar to store grain at any of the farms.

Well i just got over some excitment....   On the last save of the map i closed GE before it finished saveing.  Long story short the map no longer worked in game or in GE.  Thank goodness i had a backup that was only two weeks old.  As i started pulling bit by bit from the broken file into the backup i discovered the problem.  The issue was in the map01 file which is where the terrain, terrain foilage layer, paint layer etc. files are stored.  So after a little work i got the map back to 100% of what it was.  Moral of the story is always keep a backup and never close GE before it is finished saveing.  Wait a few seconds after it completes to close GE.

This map I will probably not be able to finish do to not having enough time.  I have well over 3000 hours spent in just the map.  That does not include the countless hours making buildings.  I have posted the map download link on my facebook modding page for those who want to download it.  It is playable the way it is.  It is missing animals,  the towns. and many details.  For those who want to try to finish it you are more then welcome to.  That also includes converting it for FS19.

Good news to anyone who is still looking at this.  The map is finished and has been released by a good friend Txzar.  It is available right now only on his Facebook page.
