This is the LS15 version of AutoTractor. Version 2.0 only works with FS15 patch 1.3 final.
How does it work?
– improved engine
– minor adjustments for patch 1.3
AutoTractor automatically inserts itself into all vehicles if they already have the specialization aiTractor. When starting this alternative helper it briefly scans the field at the current tractor position. But apart from this, AutoTractor has only a little idea of ??where it is on the field. Instead, this mod looks, starting from the current position, for the border between untouched and already worked area is. This works much like AutoCombine.
However, a combine is much easier to steer. The cutter is mounted rigidly forward. Turning to the left, then the cutter goes to the left. In tractors, it is unfortunately more complicated. The tool can be mounted front or rear rigid. Larger tools are mounted in the rear and are movable. So turning to the left the cultivator or plough will first turn in the other direction. Therefore AutoTractor requires much more computing power. Actually, you can not calculate the route accurately enough without the FPS’ going down strongly.
When you should not use AutoTractor?
On beautiful rectangular fields you can better use the normal hired worker. The headland settings in AutoTractor work for the normal hired worker as well. AutoTractor does not work together with other mods changing the behaviour of the hired worker .
If you want to go a a certain path on the field then I recommend using CoursePlay. For simple following tasks the mod FollowMe is great. I have the two mods together with AutoTractor in my mods folder.
Unfortunately, it happens again and again that frame rates drop. When starting AutoTractor you should make sure that the rear wheels of the tractor are already on the correct field. Concave field margins let the FPS decrease strongly. This problem I have not yet fully under control. Apparently, this phenomenon occurs less strong in circular mode.
