Removing Trees?
Is there anyway to bulldoze these damned trees? I want to join two small fields into a big one with the plow, but there are a couple trees in between them that screw up my hired workers.

On another note, is there a way to "un-plow" a field and return it to unusable land (like if you screw up when extending the field with the plow)?

Thanks!

i do not think you can remove trees (I have same issue with hired hands). You can not return land to its previous state once you manually override plow. If you are going to do it recommend saving game first then doing it.

yer my big gripe is the trees thought this was a major issue in fs11! hoped they would adress it in fs13 even make them so AI can drive through them its a big issue for hired help you leave them to it "" flick back 20mins later to check and nothing is done becuase the tractor is humping the tree.... for me so far its a let down just fs11 with slightly improved graphics and stupid mission thing thats pops up every 10 mins as for all the extra placeable renewable energy stuff its nothing we didnt have in fs11 mods & dlc pack we allready paid for oh and im sick of picking up chicken eggs so iv since shot the lot...lol

Missions can be reduced or even canceled if you really wanted.

Press ESC then click the arrow buttons left or right til you get on the settings page and change the missions to what you want.

As for the trees you will have to wait for them to patch it or if and when an editor is added remove the trees

Can't say anything for sure about the trees but as for the other part, you can technically revert land to its previous state that have already been plowed, that is done by sowing the area with grass and the area will revert back to how it was, like for instance if you plow over a road and sow it with grass, the road will return as it was before.

which trees are you wanting removed? I am working on a Original Map Modification.

I can also remove all trees from between any field.

If this is for single player you can just add the map I am modifying to your mod folder then just edit your careerSavegame.xml to load the new map since nothing else is changed. working on the PDA right now because the default setup in the SDK has their icons in odd places. I want all the Icons the same as original exactly.

I dont say edit the original map because then you cannot get on multiplayer. which is why I am making a second version.

The Giant's editor is in the steam install. There should be plenty of tutorials online showing how to use it. I would do like Kravyn says and make a new copy of the map before messing with it in case you mess up the map - at least you have the original. Should be simple to remove the trees, although I haven't used the Giant's editor since a couple of versions ago.

If you want to remove the tree, vote yes to Greenlight Woodcutter 2012

I have already tweaked the map making a version 2 of the original map. I will probably try to release a V2.1 with all the trees removed that are next to fields. but first I am making sure to get permission from the person who released the first basic map mod with folders all setup. I tweaked it alot tho their version is a basic map and no edits where as I edited all the PDA added the english and german all the Mod info.

oh and Maduar that actually looks pretty decent for a logging game but whats with the shameless plug/bribe....... lol

Plant grass and ignore. Forestry is a part of German land management, so no reason why not...Woodcutter sounds interesting - I'll have a look at it.

michaelrmacdonell what did you mean by plant grass and ignore? how does that have anything to do with removing the trees that are in the way?

As ever I was late in delivery - sorry...I think someone asked about restoring land to its virgin state?

wardiaper what do you mean the giants editor is in the steam instal? The only place where I can find it is on giants-software.com and it costs $100.
The Almighty King of Geeks Dec 13, 2012 @ 3:54am 
nvm i found it
