I made a big pile of logs and now my screen goes crazy when I get close to the pile. I'm just curious as to why you think this is happening. It's probably 50 to 70 logs. Just as a reminder I'm playing on PS4.
Yea that sounds right. I've had huge piles of logs cause frame rate issues on both console and pc. Bales will do it too.
So nice reading everyone's logging comments !! I am quite excited to see how everyone does.
Still on DAY ONE....I finally sold the Stepa trailer and boom after a WHOLE lot of logging in the immediate area... I literally wanted to pour gasoline on it and burn it... I just could not get the hang of it... so now I am chipping instead. I cut everything and pitch in the tipper by hand that which doesnt make it in the tipper off the Sampo's cutting head. I bought the Jenz BA 725 D to take my chips and installed it right at the mill.
Things are coming together... I plowed a lot on the weekend and got my road network in and the buildings and crap that I think I need in my staging / farm area. Still more plowing to do and trees to pull out. Once this is done I need to get planting and then take a drive to find an area I can clear out for grassing. I really enjoyed playing on the weekend for the first time in ages.. having a purpose and creating your own thing is much more exciting than the daily plow, cultivate, seed fertlize, harvest and repeat
Can't wait to post pics and maybe if I am feeling ambitious...a video tour... LMAO
OK, I decided I won't be beaten by a tree (or two)... so I've joined in too. Not sure how long this will take, I'm still on the first day... and right now need a major break from seeing either woodchips or trees.... lol

I just fast forwarded thru darkness and I am at the dawn of day two. I'm playing at real time. I've got a field cleared and planted. I'm trying to build the farm area away from civilization. I am having to take breaks from logging and spend time on my WBH farm. I am appreciating the thought process it takes to complete this task. Perhaps another map without so many trees would be less tedious. Like you have said before cr41g, a map that starts with minimum or nothing and has a farm or farms to rebuild. Maybe a map builder will get wind of what we are doing and build a map. This works for now.
It would be nice if someone would come up with a bare bones map.... even nicer if they asked me my thoughts...LMAO... that won't happen. I just like doing things from scratch... there is a greater sense of acomplishment when you can see what you have done or built as opposed to Giants current method of just accumulating and having more money...eventually you have more money than you know what to do with...and for me THAT doesnt take long. Once you have your equipment and the loan is paid... I am honestly at a loss to find a reason to continue

Maybe I should upload to ModHub: "Scratch-Map Paradise" I would include nothing but just the default terrain. I would make it default size for console compatibility, if consoles were to have 4x, then I would do that. It would be cool to do that, maybe I should find it in the file of FS17, I think its where you would learn to mod, they give you a blank map. I would put "Dedicated to cr41g " in the description for sure. I would make it so that you have one tractor, one plow, and one planter, a loader and bucket, and one combine, max loan is already set on any mode you play on, and you have 2k in the bank and that would be it. You would have to put your grain on the ground and pick it up with a shovel. That would be major challenge if you had a lot of grain lol, but you would get money in the end. If only that was in reality for me to make, I still have lots to learn about modding yet.
