MAP RELEASE: Great Western Farms REDUX

I know what you are all thinking. “Another version of the same map?” but Great Western Farms REDUX is not another version of the map, but rather, an expansion that should have been created when I made it. This release has some things moved around the map and makes it easier to work higher volumes of animals on it. The changes go along ways to making the life more life-like as well.

Whats New?

The map now contains two fermenting silos and the pit in the yard is gone. There are multiple feed mixers at the cow and pig areas, two seed masters and more storage for things like seeds, fuel, and fertilizers. The area near the greenhouses has been overhauled and a silo added that will store your manure and compost for the greenhouses and the separator, and a large slurry storage tank has been installed as well. There are more sell points will more competitive pricing, the field prices have been adjusted to be more realistic and a new grass field takes the place of field 12 on the south edge of the map.

The cherry orchard has returned and also has a plum orchard with it.

You will also find horses on the map, as well as, a dog on the farm and a “farm hand” wandering around. The level of interaction with the production remains high as nothing on this map auto sells. Nothing. Not even the milk.

The log is error-free and while the map size is just over a gig, it runs very well on most machines.

MAP: Great Western Farms Production V1

Just like the original Great Western Farms but with several new additions and more focus on production.

The Cola plant, BD’s coffee growing operation, and a custom Cherry Orchard all join the map. The auto sell triggers have all been removed as well. The milk sale is disabled so you have to haul your milk to the new sell point at the dairy and choose to sell it outright or put it in the production tank at the rear of the building so they can make hmilk and cheese for you to sell instead.

Come check out the differences but be aware that this version of the map does require a new save game.
