Early Access Update Release v0.2.2.0
The latest update (v0.2.2.0) introduces four new vehicles: the Lacotec LH II mounted chopper, together with the Claas Orbis 750 cutterbar, brings a new, more intimate harvest experience. The MB Trac 1800, carrying a whopping 180 horses, and the Strautmann SZK-1802H bogy trailer complete the set.
This update’s highlight: muddy, messy dirt! Give your vehicles the dirt treatment on the fields, and clean them at the farm near the high pressure cleaner. Each vehicle and each implement gets its own dirt value, which increases the more they’re used on the fields. Also, driving on wet ground leads to a more dirty vehicle. Those in a hurry can also use the fleet menu to have their machines cleaned - for a little premium, of course. The active usage of the high pressure cleaner will be added in a later menu.
We have further expanded the game’s economy: prices now also fluctuate depending on the season - meaning it becomes sensible to store grain and wait for better financial yields in the winter.
In addition, our PBR implementation has been enhanced with various ambient occlusion techniques, eliminating the extreme glow of metallic surfaces on machines and making them more natural.
As always, you can find all other changes, bug fixes and new features in our changelog.
We are looking forward to your feedback!
