Well I finally planted my first crop:
Lots of teething problems. I bought a weight and promptly knocked it over, and could not for the life of me right it again, so that was money down the drain (I had to immediately sell it at a loss). I bought a plough and ploughed the field easily enough, but then I bought a seeder which refused to work.
Aha! “Combinations!” Apparently the seeder is compatible with some other thing, so I leased it (I was getting suspicious by this point - my suspicion would prove to be well founded) and put it on the front of my tractor, then reattached the seeder. Apparently the thing I bought was a cultivator so that didn’t help, but what it did was force me to cycle through my tools until I found that the seeder is effectively two tools, both of which need to be switched on. HOW ANNOYING.
So I got rid of the thing I leased and happily seeded my field.
I have also weeded a second field and also harvested a third. The harvest wasn’t worth shit but hey ho, at least I got the experience.
Other annoyances: can’t use right stick to move my head in cockpit view. It works fine in external view but I really want it to work in the cab too. The controls infobox is occasionally replaced with keyboard controls which is irritating (see screenshot). Cars frequently rear-end me on the road. Oh, and I can’t run people over.
Anyway I’ll plough on (har) and see if I get any better. I seem to recall having bugger all to do in FS19 when all my fields were growing, so I guess I’ll take some contracts next time and earn some cash.
Oh yeah! And my small tractor wasn’t powerful enough to pull the seeder apparently, even though there was nothing in the specifications of either tractor or seeder to suggest that would be the case.
