Fords are at the tippy top of my list...sadly we will probably never see them.. I also like the Fendt Favorite and that motorized wagon thingy the Eicher G220, it would be great for feeding the animals and doing errands
Apparently... one of the items that was constructed by one of the members in the team in their MF pack used a single component modded by someone else and I think this may have been unknown to the other modders in the group...not sure.. BSM decided to withdraw from the contest instead of being disqualified. It has to be heartbreaking for those on the team... there was a lot of coin at stake. As far as I am concerned they were hands down to win.
I started a new Old Stream V2 map last night. SOLD EVERYTHING and took out the $200k loan to start out with $600k +. I bought everything in the MF pack, including 5 tractors, 2 tippers. The old CASE IH harvester, a bale wrapper and BSM's bale stacker...10 sheep and 10 pigs. The money really goes far in that pack. Still to be purchased a tedder and windrow.... but that will come in time. I havent been this excited for FS in quite some time.
Also not sure if the consolers are aware but the MF pack includes something called IC control.. using L1 and R1 together and the R3 you can open cab windows and doors...so I am driving around back window open and side door open for a little natural air conditioning... but two of my tractors are cabless...and that makes me happy too.
That's horrible I think they would have most definitely won their category and I can't imagine most console players would have voted any mod above theirs unless they just didn't like the older styles. It's the best body of work as far as vehicles go by far. I bet BSM has an opening on their team.

Man those MF open cab tractors are sweet. The view from the seat is awesome. I can almost feel the heat from the engine, the sun on my face and the smell of diesel exhaust. It's like a whole new experience for a console farmer like me. I don't know anything about what it takes for a modder to do this stuff but In my humble opinion modders are artists. Their just using different tools on a different palate.
I am enjoying the MF pack... it was a long wait for cabless tractors. I know many people looked forward to Big Bud and the really big machinery it brought, but I didn't care for it... but to me this MF pack is the best thing we have had in all of FS17. I am in love with all the new gear and I am using all of it.
I was REALLY tempted to use them on Drumard... but I have more time in on that map than any other... so a change felt right...Old Streams just does feel right... and its nice having all the animals together for a change
Well before big bud all I wanted was bigger equipment and was always looking for the best big open fields map and I have had fun there. Now wouldn't you know it I'm having a blast on Lossberg with seasons mods and all older equipment lol. I am using the smallest massey combine and one of the newer small planters so I can do corn but I'm having just as much fun with the smaller stuff and it's a new game again. I'm also tickled to death with the MF pack and I was sort of meh about it till I tried it. Also loving the ford tractors as well.
