MidWest Family Farms

Welcome to MidWest Family Farms, This map has standard crops plus soybeans, Standard animals plus pigs in a american style barn.
There are two sell places for grains and one sell place for potato's and sugar beets, A BGA with a compostMaster, A John Deere dealer, Stockyard to sale pigs.
There is a place to sell manure and slurry plus a place to store slurry. There are a lot of tree's to cut down and take to the sawmill. There are two empty lots for placeables. And much more. I checked over the tree's twice but there mite be a floater I missed?

Pig Barn- Pigs only need mixed feed, silage, corn, water. Press the o botton to select between young pig or slaughter pigs when loading and then r to fill.
You will need to download and install ViehMarkt from Marhu.net if you want to haul young pig to the barn or you can just buy them in store.

Mods needed zzz_compostsoil, Chopped Straw mod, AnimationMaptrigger, Multifruit mod for soybeans.

Giants, And all the good folks that make mods for the game. Look in modDesc of mod to see author.

    Foozball, are there any error messages in the log.txt file? I'm in the process of downloading the map right now, I haven't attempted to use it yet. I'll let you know what happens when I try the map.

    EREEDKS,I freely admit I'm a player not a maker so I don't know what this means. This is the only error I could find in the log.Error: Running LUA method 'update'.C:/Users/Owner/Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2015/mods//MidWest_Family_Farms/map/scripts/FermentingSilo.lua:498: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'org_priceMultiplier' (a nil value)

    The same goes for me, I play but have never tried making a mod or anything. I'm not sure what that error means but the game works fine for me. I can tell you I've had a similar error message on other maps. I cheat, I have a list of silo amounts that I copy and paste in the careersavegame.xml file. I give myself over 100 billion liters of everything and 40 million eggs to start with. (continued next)

    you have to have the zzz_compostSoil mod in your mods folder and that error will be gone.

    I've had an error message similar to that when I add the crop 'mohn' on some maps. On other maps it works fine, even if they don't have the crop 'mohn' in use.

    Foozball, I just found something. Do you understand German? I did a search using your error message and found someone posting the same problem but the response is in German. http://forum.modhoster.de/thread/3433-lua-fehler/

    To EREEDKS....I see you are also Cheat, I thought I was the only one that does a bit of "fudging" of the game numbers and settings...Bob. (just did the download of the Map, Let tou know if it is any problems)

    Hi All... Just run a fast test on the map, it loads and runs OK (map only, no mods loaded) Map in a fair size, large fields, looks to be interesting. It could do with some upgrades. example, a larger Pallet collector for the Wool skids, a MixFeeder for the cows, and maybe some more fruit types, maybe some Factories. Bob.

    Couldn't get it to load first time...saw a failure that pointed to the AnimationMapTrigger. Found a newer version (1.0.4) of AnimationMapTrigger and the map loaded. Log file shows two errors, neither of which bother me:Error: Can't load resource 'C:\Users\jturi\Documents\FS15Mods\MidwestFamilyFarm//MidWest_Family_Farms/map/models/buildings/cattlemarket/ViehMarkt.lua'.Error: failed to load particle system data/vehicles/particleSystems/wheatParticleSystemLong.i3d

    The only thing I ask for mapmakers is make a zip within a zip (or RAR) to include mods that is needed for the maps. Not everybody is gonna know where to find them.

    To JTURIE....The line in your comment above ( Reference...C:\users\jturi ) the file in question looks as if it is not there. ( missing ) the Moddesc file has it as a source file to be loaded, So the log will show an error because it can not find file. If you find the farm functions OK for you, but you would like to clean up the log entry, you could do an edit and make that item not be seen, Line would turn green. Bob

    Thanks Bob, I think I will do that. Guessing the author either tried to implement the ViehMarkt mod in GE and had issues, and just missed this line.
  • Farmboy002
    2016-04-23 19:05
    Yes I did try and put the ViehMarkt mod in. But decided not to and I forgot to remove the extrasourcefile from the maps modDesc. My Bad... So yes all you need to do is remove it from the maps modDesc,

    Great map! The silage silo at the main farm is something you dont see in a lot of maps, and the American Hog Barn gives it something to set apart from other maps. Good American style map that would keep anyone busy who likes to be able to farm, raise livestock, and do forestry all on one map that runs smoothly.

    I love the map i like big open and flat spaces and this works great. I am a bit lost with all the extra fruit types, i'll lean them. Is there a cheat sheet with what storage area is what on the main farm? Also what is the silo up by the sheep for?
  • Aaron

    Also a bit more space at the shop to connect trailers and such to tractors and trucks. it's a really tight fit with some of the larger mods.
