FS17 – I SEE BALES V18.104.22.168
This mod will cause the PDA player map to show hotspots for bale and fillable pallet objects where ever they exist on the map.
If you’ve ever wondered whether or not you’ve finished picking up bales in a large field (since the game doesn’t always render them visible to the player, depending on view distance and location), this mod might help you find them and ensure your field is clean. The same applies to finding any and all pallets of material on the map, whether seed, fertilizer, pig feed, etc.
The PDA hotspots are icons representing the various objects, whether bales or pallets. In other words, the PDA map will show a tiny straw bale on it for each straw bale on the map. Different icons are used depending on the type of bale. A pallet of seed will show a tiny pallet of seed on the PDA map. And so forth. This is how the mod is set up on default. If small colored circles are considered preferable to icons, the mod can be changed slightly to accommodate this. Instructions on how to make the alteration are included in the mod (see Instructions.xml file), and one example is provided in the last picture.
The icons/colored circles show up on the player PDA as well as the ‘Escape Menu map.’ Sometimes the icons can be hard to see if you’re standing or driving right next to a bale/pallet, but they can easily be seen in fields on the PDA map as a whole.
The mod is multiplayer compatible.
