Just a thought, as it is FS13 you are playing, could you not simply plough the road verge, then use a seeder to plant grass. As in 13, that will restore the painted grass beneath and let the new mowable grass grass grow on top. So it will look right and also be able to be cut.
You probably wont be able to plough all the verges, as Im sure there will be bits round trees etc, but it should certainly reduce the amount of red on the map.
I thought of this and yes, I would be able to plow all the roadsides and reseed them with grass, but geeeeez, that map is way too big and it would take me several weeks of playtime to do this. I'd rather ignore the red and seed one of those fields that I haven't purchased yet.
I thought that there would 've been a simpler answer, that's why I asked. Thanks.
Yelibam, my attitude was a small simple remark, nothing to make such a big Fuzz, please. I excuse myself and now let's forget it. An attitude is like a colour preference, a religion or just another preference. If someone has one, please respect. I seeked no harm nor offence and please remark that I said *Please forget it*! Thank you and thanks for those who helped to clear this up, much appreciated.
