New Farming Simulator 19 mod showcase: The (Amazing) Manure System, created by Wopster.
Wopster’s latest creation is truly a game-changer for all players looking for more realistic gameplay in FS19. Sure, Wopster released something similar for FS17, but the new version is more extensive, more feature-rich.
Wopster’s release includes four mods, where the Manure System script mod is the most important.
The Manure System
The main mod is a script that runs all the added functions. It also contains two types of hoses:
- A slurry hose.
- And one liquid fertilizer hose.
The hoses connect to each other, the other mods that Wopster has released, and a lot of the base game machinery (see below.)
Here’s just one example: You can make a connection between a sprayer and a fertilizer tank to refill the sprayer.
What About Mods?
Wopster’s manure system works with all the base game machinery (this list shows you exactly which ones.) But what about modded sprayers and liquid manure equipment?
I know that several modders are already working on implementing Wopster’s creation, for example, 4D modding.
Ok, back to more of Wopster’s mods…
The Manure System Lagoon
The Manure System Lagoon is a placeable object in which you can store (a lot) of liquid manure. It holds 1,718,000 liters at the most.
It also has a mixing function, reducing the thickness of the slurry. Doing so makes the liquid manure flow more quickly through the pumps and hoses.
The Stallkamp Pump
The Stallkamp Pump makes pumping liquids to and from objects easy. It’s particularly handy when the receiving or giving end doesn’t have a pump. I noticed that the pump continued to work after being disconnected from a PTO. A possible bug?
Anyway, when connected to a tractor, remember to open the manure valves to get the liquids flowing.
Zunhammer Tripod Hopper
The Zunhammer Tripod Hopper is ideal for fieldwork. Just place it on the ground and connect it to a slurry transport tanker using hoses. Then, maneuver the spreading tanker’s refill boom to the docking funnel to refill the tank.
Note: You’ll need Gamer8250’s Tractor Triangle Pack to attach the hopper to a tractor for transport.
How to Use the Manure System
You can use a mouse or a controller to control most of the stuff in Wopster’s Manure System mod. The hoses, for example, can be picked up like other objects in Farming Simulator 19. And valves can be opened and closed by interacting with them.
The F1 Help Menu describes most of what you need to know about operating the different parts. You can also look at Wopster’s manual on GitHub.
FS19 Manure System by Wopster
Wopster is one of the most valuable modders for fans of realism in Farming Simulator 19. His Guidance Steering mod, his contributions to the Seasons 19 mod, and now, the Manure System mod, just shows how brilliant he is.
The Manure System is amazingly good! Sure, it takes some time to figure it out (for me, at least.) But once I got the hang of the most of it, it felt like the rebirth of FS 19!
May Wopster never get tired of modding the Farming Simulator games…
Where to Download
You can download all the ingredients in the Manure System from the Modhub inside the game. If you want the web version, here are the links:
- The Manure System.
- Here’s the Zunhammer Tripod hopper.
- The Stallkamp Pump.
- And, finally, the placeable slurry lagoon.
PS. In the game, you’ll find the manure hose, the tripod hopper, and the Stallkamp pump in the Tools | Slurry Tanks category, while you’ll find the fertilizer hose in the Tools | Crop Protection category.
Some Usage Tips
I believe the mod makes the slurry tankers accept water…
The hoses aren’t flexible with regards to length. You need to position your equipment to fit the hose length or buy extension versions of the hose in the shop to lengthen the reach.
It seems there’s a limit on how many connected hoses you can pick up. If you’re connecting more than three and try to lift them, you’ll get a message that you’re not “Super Human”… If you need to make a long line of hoses, connect sections of three first and place them where you need them. Then, connect the sections.
Another cool feature is that you can store the hoses on the side of the Kotte Garant transport semi-tanker, for example.
It might be a bit tricky to find the connection points on some of the vehicles and equipment. Just walk around with the hose picked up to see what triggers the connection action.
If you can’t get the Stallkamp pump to work, check that you’ve opened the manure valves.
Using the Manure System requires some thinking… It needs some familiarization… I recommend that you play around with it first to get to know the ins and outs, before using it in a savegame…
