Hireable Tools mod help
« on: August 17, 2014, 06:35:12 PM »
I've read the whole forum looking for the answer, But i can only set how many vehicles i have going with it, cant adjust the headland/offset thingy at all, I am trying to use it with combines and i have seen it should work with combines so how do i get this to work? Are there specific keys i need to hit to turn on the other options?

kj on certain tools it will not work... I think because it cannot recognize the headland.

Thanks Mike, I guess it was people that never used the mod telling others it could work on anything. Clearly not..  *facepalm*

not to mention, the description on the main Farming Sim site doesn't tell you anything.

I just use Autocombine. It almost does the exact same thing, and it's probably better at it.

I may try hireable tools again, but I like Autocombine.

My problem with Hireable Tools is you can only get up to 3 workers working on/in the same field. But what the heck I usually have 1 combine in some 600 hectare field anyway and just spend like a full day getting it done. Then another baling. Then another cultivating. Then another planting. Then another week or so and the process starts all over again  ;D ;D ;D

Exactly, and they don't follow the contour of the field, plus sometimes they run into each other.

Autocombine adjusts its position in the field based on the width of the header. Hirable tools can only use half of the width of the header if it's in the wrong position.

I thought i tried the first auto combine and if i remember right it was a disaster. although I'm sure it's improved so I will give it a shot. i just cant stand running one combine on a field bigger than 100 acres..

That's about as realistic as it get, right? lol I've done that once while seeding. Left the game up while running 2 case 600's and the big amazon seeder that i edited and let them go all day while i was out. came back to a fully seeded field that was so big it "stopped" at the horizon.

From what I know, autocombine is much better now than back then, but it still isn't perfect.

If I knew how to use courseplay, I would, but autocombine is the best thing other than just the hired hand that comes with the game.

And me too, I enjoy watching "someone" else run the combine, while I shuttle grain to the trucks.

Well, not exactly relax for me. After all, I like to run six combines at once with a script of some kind, and attempt to run two grain carts by myself. :D

The developer version of Courseplay is much easier to use than the previous versions. When cutting a field I use CP for the harvesters, I'll unload them myself with a grain cart, and use CP again to get the grain trucks to the farm, unload, and get back. I've even used it for a second grain cart, when there were too many harvesters for me to unload. If you need a hand with CP let me know.

what is the latest version, 3.41 is what i can find? I'm interested in starting to learn how courseplay works.

To be honest, I *think* the developer version is much easier to use, I haven't used the latest stable version (which was released in May 2013) for more than a year now. When I got the developer version I just figured the new hud was only in the dev. version. I'm sorry if it's still the same  *facepalm*.
Anyway, you can find the developer version here: https://github.com/Courseplay/courseplay/archive/master.zip. Make sure to unzip it, rezip the contents in 'courseplay-master' (so modDesc.xml is in the root) and rename it to 'ZZZ_courseplay.zip'.

Let me know if you have any questions about CP!
