I will download to give it a try and possibly save it in the wings for when the new DLC rolls out...if I decide not to use Chellington.. which right now is my first choice for the DLC... but I will give it a hard look for sure.

I am going to get this one too but I usually give the new maps a week or two just to see if it is going to need an update. I really don't like to put in a bunch of work just to have to start over. Nothing against any of the map makers it just seems no matter how rigorously they test, once you get thousands of players playing it unforeseen issues come up. Looks really good and will hopefully work well with the Big Bud DLC.😃
Not sure how it will work will the big bud dlc . a great map from what I have seen so far hut the main farm area is really right with the buildings. He does t have many fences but the ones that are there the small startup combine just manages to get passed and no more. Only thing I'm not happy about and this is personal nothing at all to do with the map. Your starting g field is quite a bit away from the main farmyard so taking slow moving equipment is tiresome . this is just because I have no patience I'm too used to racing games with 200mph cars haha. But yep tight roads etc will make this unfriendly with big bud dlc imo

Before I start. Thanks to the creators for this new forum. FYI, this map does have gold nuggets. If you are one that does not like to use them be careful when you find the first one.
Welcome to the forum blademaster
I still haven't looked for it yet but there are a couple small issues SOMS2 is going fix so I am going to wait to play it so I don't have to start again. Really like this map, I hope it doesn't take to long for the update haha.
I started the map...just for fun I realize it will get an update so I am not putting too much time into it. I am currently spending most of my time on Drumard working on my animal trophies and Drumard it set upm real nice for animals.
But on outback I found the one nugget...lol... and went all CASE on this farm. I also plowed 5 big open areas that were just grass and not owned by anyone so now I have 6 big fields, 5 of which were free...hahaha. I am going to run the corn header and grain header on this map to start and do canola, soybeans, sunflowers and corn... lower yield...good money..and then add in the rest shortly after.
I'm doing much the same as you cr41g but haven't bothered with the grassed area's yet. Didn't realise there was that many...lol yeah I stumbled on the nugget as was driving along the road after leaving the farm and thought I'd check out the old building on the left and there it was, will help when it comes to playing it for real after the update.

terrible map.. simply terrible.. no just joking.. my sass is spilling over today lol.. seems to me he did a fine job.. ive got a small operation on this map atm but plan to grow it after the update.. but ive got a lot on my fs plate with like 5 maps currently in play lol
Yeah, I kinda prefer the small maps, just because I have a short attention span.. But I still think I'll give this map a try!! There seem to be quite a few bugs being worked out, and a few big changes coming to the next update, so (like CanadaFarms) I'll just hold out and download this map once all the issues get worked out.
I have to hand it to SOMS2, he has a lot of patience that's for sure. He was going to make a few small changes and as usual the requests were piled on one on top of another, and he is actually listening so now it's going to be a completely different map. I just really feel bad for these modders, Its like I will take my time and create something cool and then let everyone tear it apart because it's not exactly what they wanted. I couldn't do it, I would lose my sh**.
IF I were a modder... I think I would have to create a whole new persona..away from my actual accounts... some of the people are brutal with their requests and ideas...
..like honestly... "this is what I made, on my own time, to what I wanted for me and I have decided to share it with all of you..this is how it is...it may not be to your taste but I guarantee you it is to someone's taste.. and no.. other than fatal modding flaws... it won't be getting changed"... people need to suck it up... use it...or don't.. but SHUT UP..
It's a wonder there are people like SOMS2 and others who after all the flack they take for spending quite some of their time making a map for general use they decide to nit pick about little things instead of being grateful.....they'll have to have cr41g as they're PA....If it's not to your liking tough get used to it and get on with it!!! 😠
Is this the same princessjessi as the one on Giants forum?...welcome

For those of you that have or are playing on American Outback have you run across a reason for an update? I just started it tonight. Starting slow in case update comes but I just could not wait any longer. With all due respect to my fellow FS farmers across the pond I just had to get out from between the hedgerows, and drive on the side of the street I know how to drive on.
