FS 19 mods presentation: the ITRunner For Silos, modified by DD ModPassion.
This mod lets you transport filled silos from A to B by using an ITRunner trailer. The silos are, in reality, XXL versions of the in-game Bigbags…
The addon works like any other hooklift application. The only difference is that the hooklift arm of the included trailer is telescopic, making it reach much higher than the standard version.
Each silo has a capacity of 25,000 liters. There are 7 silos to choose from:
- Horse food, pig food, and chicken food.
- Fertilizer, lime, seeds, and bulk.
6 of the silos are filled to the max when you buy them. The seventh, the bulk silo, is empty but can be refilled from other buying triggers. (It would be great if it could be refilled from the farm silos too…)
Sure, there are placeable silo mods. But when you want more realism, by transporting and placing them manually, these addons will help you achieve it. Oh, and you’ll find the silos in the Objects | Bigbags category.
Not Refillable, Except…
Most of the silos can’t be refilled. Once they are empty, they’ll disappear. There’s one exception, though. The bulk silo (the one without logos) can be refilled from buying triggers.
Let’s say you want to use Bigbags for refilling. Just drive up to the bigbags and follow the instructions in the Help menu. Note that the silo needs to be hooked up to the hooklift arm to start refilling.
Yep, it refills from the other product silos too.
Just remember the filled silos are heavy!
Several players have reported that the ITRunner and silos mod doesn’t work with Courseplay. So, I tested it. I can confirm that the addon currently doesn’t work with Courseplay. And it’s on a fundamental basis. As long as you have Courseplay activated with the mod, it will create errors that eventually makes it impossible to drive the tractor. Here’s the error message:
Error: Running LUA method 'update.'
../mods/FS19_Courseplay/toolManager.lua:441: attempt to call method 'getAttachedImplements' (a nil value)
The error has been reported to the Courseplay developers.
FS 19 ITRunner For Silos
This is an innovative mod. It adds more realism to Farming Simulator 19. My only hope is that DD ModPassion can figure out if it’s possible to shorten the silo fill pipes for transport, perhaps by making it telescopic? (No worries, though, as the current tube doesn’t have collision objects. It won’t get stuck when passing under a bridge, for example.)
