Post news RSS Early Access Update v0.9.0 - Maize grain harvest & polishing

With this update we’re very excited to introduce our newest industry partner!

Posted by on




With this update we’re very excited to introduce our newest industry partner! The new header Mais Star* Horizon 800 FB by Geringhoff enables you to harvest maize grain with the Claas Tucano combine. During this type of harvest, the corn cob is completely separated from the plant and the kernels stored in the bunker; the rest of the plant is chopped up and left on the field. You can sell the harvested kernels at the harbor.
We’ve added an introductory mission that’s available immediately.

Sliding vehicles
Up until now, the vehicle wheels blocked too early during the braking process and it looked as if the machines would slip even at low speeds. We have adjusted the braking behavior and the handbrake for all machines: now the wheels decelerate not only visually but also physically slowly with the vehicle speed.

All other new items, bug fixes and changes can be found in the change log.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We’re going to be back on January 13.

Note to the modders
We have adjusted the fixed implement attachers (front loader, front loader tool, combine cutter, forage harvester cutter). Implements are now aligned to the attacher node so that the reference and attacher nodes have the same position and orientation. Existing mods may need to be adjusted.
