Howdy, so I am a player with very little modding experience but I know my way around my computer and files very easily. I am familiar with working with XML files, etc.
Anyways, I have been having trouble with a few combines lately, being compatible with the amazing Macdon Drapers. The affected combines so far being. Claas Lexion, Claas Lexion (USA), John Deere s690i. It appears the Macdon goes down a bit too low which picks the combine's front wheels up just enough to affect the speed. Bringing 6 mph workspeed to 4 mph or less depending on the terrain.
The solution in my eye is easy but in reality I am not sure how easy it truly is. The feederhouse needs to be adjusted to not go down as low or the Macdon needs to be somehow adjusted to be cutting a bit higher. I have tried to include decent screenshots to help with my problem. As you can hopefully see, one side of the Macdon is "buried" in the ground while the other side is off the ground about 8-12 inches. This also can affect the combine to drag and turn a bit depending on the field.
If anyone can give advise or be willing to work with me, I would truly appreciate it!
try the Macdon headers on the default combines first, to see if there is an issue... in my experience so far with the combines you mentioned there (I have all of them) is that they are set up wrong as far as the connection to the header is concerned... on the ones I have, connecting a game header to them causes the header to be out of adjustment... however, could be that the Macdons are that way as well... since I have not used the Macdon header on a machine of mine yet...
