Great Plains is a 4X map based on the central plains of the USA (Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma). That means flat terrain, wide open spaces, and BIG fields.
I was getting frustrated with maps that were visually stunning, but which emphasized scenery at the expense of playability, so I decided to do the opposite. This map was designed for easy playability with automation mods, such as Courseplay, so all the fields have wide clear borders and there are very few obstructions. There is no AI traffic to interfere with your automated vehicles.
You start off with some good equipment. There are already Cow, Sheep, Pig, Chicken, and Horse facilities at your main farm. I intentionally did not include a bunker silo near the cow husbandry as many players prefer to use fermenting silo and feed mixer mods. I left plenty of space for you to place whatever items you like.
Purchased vehicles spawn at your main farm area with the overflow spawning at the Vehicle Shop.
An AutoDrive network is included, please import “AutoDrive_FS19_Great_Plains_config.xml” into your AutoDrive the first time you start a new game.
The farm has additional crops: Millet, Rye, Spelt, Carrot, Onion, Lettuce, Cabbage, Red Cabbage, Poppy, Hops, Tobacco, and Clover.
Millet, Rye, Spelt, Poppy, and Hops are harvested with any normal grain header. Tobacco requires any corn header. Carrot, Onion, Lettuce, Cabbage, and Red Cabbage require a multifruit harvester mod with a header specific to each crop. You can find these mods online. Clover can be harvested with a forage harvester and turned into chaff.
Version 1.1 adds Seasons compatibility and fixes a few bugs.
