FarmingSimulator 19 mod presentation: The MaizePlus and MaizePlus CCM add-ons,created by The-Alien-Paul and Modelleicher.
This scriptmod makes your game even more realistic. You know how everything turns into chaffwhen you put it into bunker silos, right?
Well, thismod adds several different types of silage to the game, simulating how it is inthe real world. It also adds another way to feed the pigs.
Adds New Silage Types.
Chaff isthe Farming Simulator label for everything that turns into silage. With theMaizePlus mod, you’ll see a wider variety, both in what goes into the bunkersand what comes out of them.
First,there's the whole crop silage (Wcs.) Everything you harvest and put into the bunkersilos, other than grass and corn, will become whole crop silage.
Thesecond silage type comes from corn. When you chop corn, it will become Fresh ShoppedMaize instead of chaff.
Then,there's silage grass.When you use a forage harvester to collect grass, the output will be silagegrass.
Note thatall the new silage types still can be fed to cows and used to create TMR.
So, inshort, the game now has three new silage types, depending on what you areharvesting. It's worth mentioning that The-Alien-Paul has created new andgreat-looking textures for each type.
You canbale each feed, as well, except for the raw CCM. You can use any baler tocreate silage bales of the fresh materials instead of covering them in thebunker.
CCM (Corn Cub Mix)
Anotherfeature of the MaizePlus and MaizePlus CCM add-ons is that you can turnharvested corn into CCM. CCM is short for Corn Cob Mix. CCM is energy-rich and isused in pig and cattle fattening in the real world. In FS19, you can use it tofeed the pigs. This is how you do it:
1.Harvest corn, using a standard harvester.
2. Create CCM raw (corn flour) from the corn, using the GlobalCompany CCM mill.
3. Filla bunker silo with the freshly made corn flour.
From here,treat the raw CCM as regular silage. After you have compacted and fermented the raw CCM, it will become CCMfor your pigs to enjoy. And no, you can’t make bales out of the CCM.
Automatic Content Switch
Anothercool feature is how the silo bunker content changes depending on what you fillit with. The requirement is that the silo bunker content is less than 4,000liters.
Let's sayyou have 3,000 liters of raw CCM in the silo. But instead, you want to fill thebunker with grass silage.
No problem!Just unload your first load of grass into the bunker, and the raw CCM willtransform into the new filltype.
There aresome limits to the mods. We need to talk about heightType limits.heightType limits set the rule for how many types of material you're allowed totip on the ground in Farming Simulator 19, with the material being stuff likewheat, corn, and chaff.
- Thebase game has 31 heightType slots. The standard FS19 crops and materials occupy23 of those.
- MaizePlusadds 4 new heightTypes, and MaizePlus CCM adds another 2.
The total,29 (23 from the base game and 6 from the MaizePlus addons,) is withinthe limits of 31.
But ifyou're playing on a map with additional fruits, like triticale and alfalfa, themod might not work due to too many heightTypes. The exception is mapswith modified heightType limits.
Works with Seasons 19,But...
TheMaizePlus addons work with Seasons 19. But here's the thing: Seasons 19 addseven more heightTypes to the mix. Having all addons activated won't work if themap hasn't been modded to allow more materials on the ground. Here are thenumbers:
- Base game -23 heightTypes.
- MaizePlus -4 materials.
- MaizePlus CCM- 2 heightTypes.
- Seasons 19 -3 heightTypes.
This givesus a total of 32 heightTypes, or one too many for the base game limits.The trick is to use just the MaizePlus addon and leave the CCM extension out.
If you’re more of a visual learner (like me), you should know that The-Alien-Paul has created a short video guide to both addons. Click here to view it.
FS19 MaizePlus andMaizePlus CCM
I thinkthat both MaizePlus add-ons are excellent. They add a great deal of realism tothe game. I especially appreciate that the modders also have taken the time tocreate new textures, as well.
