Ok, this is not on the Giants forum yet, but BulletBill (creator of Coldborough Park) is working on his next map, The West Coast!!
He was almost finished with this map for FS15, but then FS17 was released. I don't think it was ever released for FS15, but he now has it almost fully converted for FS17!!!
This is a quote from him:
"The map is set on the coast, with beaches, cliffs, seaside town, a lighthouse, and even a clifftop castle ruins. Going inland you have nice gentle rolling landscape well suited for arable crops, including a river and waterfall. This rises to a low ridge of hills which runs North to South, and separates the map. The other side of this the terrain drops down into a large mountain valley which has several farms, a village, forestry areas, and is bordered by large mountains to the East. In total there are 6 farms across the map, each farm has it's own specialization, plenty of sell points, large forests, a good mix of arable and grassland pastures, all over a varied terrain. There is an extensive road network of main roads, small country lanes, and even a dual carriageway. The map also includes a railway. Some of you may be reading this and think "hey this sounds just like 'Sandy Bay'"... well that is correct. This was because at the time of me building "The West Coast 15", "Oxygendavid" was building "Sandy Bay 15". We both regularly share ideas with each other, hence both maps have similar features."
That's excellent news mdoss, I was pretty bummed out when I heard he was quitting. Not only is he an awesome modder but just a genuinely good guy that will take the time to talk to peeps like us. Happy days and when I had a private chat with BB a couple months ago he said West Coast was going to be even better than CPF..... that's hard to believe because CPF is so well done. Anyways great news!!!
Yeah, Bullet Bill is a top-notch modder! I thought he was gonna throw in the towel after CPF came out, and people kept complaining about it, and making requests, and telling him what he needs to 'fix'... Looks like he took a few months off to clear his head, and is back to work! This map looks kick-butt!!
And psychofarmer , I agree! Now there almost too many maps on console!!! I don't have enough spare time to try them all out, much less get a really good farm going!!
