Farming Simulator 19 Mod Showcase: The AGCO Ideal Combine Extension, modified by Marcus (Black Panther Group.)

The combineitself has also gotten some modifications, like selectable seat colors andgrain tank capacity.

(UpdatedOctober 11, 2019)Are you a fan of a more realistic Farming Simulator 19? Then you'll most likelyappreciate this update. You see, the 126.96.36.199 version, of the already impressiveIdeal combine mod pack, includes the Threshing Flow Indicator script byDa-Hoffi.
Put simply,this script takes the combine’s speed when threshing into consideration. Ifyou're going too fast, when harvesting, a message will tell you to slow down.Going too fast, for too long, and the harvester’s motor shuts downautomatically.
The script alsomakes some really cool animations possible. Here, the modder has made full useof it. A lot is going on, on both in-cab monitors. Here are some highlights:
And that'snot all. The recent update includes a total of 7 new and modified headers. Herethey are:
