My popular Midtown USA for FS 2015 is back, better than ever, for FS 2017...
Welcome to MidTown USA...
a small town surrounded by lush, fertile farmland located in the heartland of
the United States. Based on the field layout of the stock 2015 map, the scenery
and layout depicts a typical midwestern slice of American farming... with
realistic sellpoints, farm silo storage and even limestone gravel roads, and
a long, fast moving train.
Large equipment will be needed to fully benefit from the spacious fields... the
farm is large, with plenty of storage and everything close at hand. The large BGA
depends on you to keep it going... and the village depends on it for their power
needs! You have full use of a compost plant, but must supply your own fuel and
run the unit... The Garden Center pays a premium price for as much compost as
you can bring to them! There is plenty to do in here, so enjoy farming in
This map has all the default crops, including a field of spruces for forestry,
and 2 fields set up with grass which can be fertilized for greater yields.
There are six sellpoints, also the BGA, Bio Plant and Garden Center to sell stuff:
- Flour mill - wheat / maize (corn)
- Train Station Granary - sunflower / rape (canola)
- Warehouse - barley / sunflower / soybean / rape (canola)
- Train Station Sugarbeet Sales - sugarBeet
- Midtown Potato Sales - potatoes
- Midtown Feeds - barley / wheat / soybean / maize (corn)
There is a modern grain system (with an accurate, real world capacity) on the farm
to store your produce until a better price comes along.
- fermenting silos at the farm do not need compacting / will empty directly into
feed mixer / check status at console next to silo. (2 silos, accepts chaff and grass)
- BGA allows tipping with trailers directly into hopper, but you will need to
supply your own ramp (any decent placeable will work) / recommend BGA extension
mod for more lifelike BGA experience. If using the BGA Extension, it will also
accept other fruits such as sugarBeet and potatoes. If no ramp, can dump on the
ground at the BGA and shovel into hoppers. If the Platinum DLC is installed, can
use a sugarcane trailer to tip directly into the hopper. Additionally, there is
a selection of equipment at the BGA which you do not own, but you can use...
- Compost plant is available for free use, accepts most anything, including bales
Compost must be shoveled up from heap into trailer for transport to Garden Center
sell point... compost can also be spread on fields as fertilizer, same as manure.
Composter must be fueled first in order to run.
- Water tank at main farm has a water fill trigger for free water.
- Bulk seed and fertilizer silos on the farm are cheaper than the default game
triggers (the ones by the bags scenery) and cheaper than buying pallets at the
- Milk sells automatically at midnight (the milk truck at the dairy apparently
comes while everyone is sleeping, no one ever sees him!) however, a milk fill
trigger is set up at the black milk tank by the cow shelter, additionally, if
the provided Milktrigger_placeable.zip mod is present in the mod folder, you
will have a sell point trigger at the dairy to manually sell your milk. To
avoid having to use the "Stop Milk Sale" mod, the boolean "automaticallySellMilk"
in the cowsHusbandry user attributes can be "unticked" in GE...
- The fields all must be purchased except 4 which you start out with...
- Chopped straw is built into this map, NO NEED to have the choppedstraw zip in
the mod folder as well... in fact, if you do, this could cause conflicts...
- Mud mod is incorporated into this map as well... the mud effects and "get dirty"
intervals have been toned down to make it more manageable.
- The map is fully Seasons mod ready, with a custom snowmask and all foliage
layers and trees change with the seasons. Additionally, the latest Midwest GEO
is built in to this map... NO OTHER GEO MODS should be in the mod folder with
this map as this WILL cause conflicts...
- For those with the Kuhn DLC pack, a bonus baler will be available in the
starting equipment, for those who have the Big Bud DLC, a seeder... lastly,
when the Kotte Universal Pack is in the folder, you will have a tanker truck
in the starting equipment for hauling your milk or fuel...
NOTE: A useful mod pack which will allow the hauling of milk from the farm to
the dairy, also carrying fuel from a gas station to the composter is the
FS17_kotteUniversalPack.zip this is available on many various sites, simply
google this exact filename and it will turn up...
IMPORTANT: This is a pack which MUST be unpacked BEFORE placing in your mod
folder... included in this pack are three files:
MidtownUSA2017_Seasons.zip - the actual map itself
MilkTrigger_placeable.zip - the modified milk sell trigger needed for the map

Disclaimer: this is a highly detailed map, and as such will require a strong, high
spec PC to run... especially if you have many mods on the farm. The only solution
to this issue is to not use any mods and turn the settings down. Additionally, to
avoid unforeseen issues and conflicts, please have ONLY this map in the mod folder
as having multiple maps in the folder will cause issues as the game loads all the
scripts from all the maps, including the active one...
This will be the only version of the map, unless someone finds a game breaking
bug, shouldn't since it's been fully tested. However, any things you don't like or
would like to be improved will have to be for your own private editions.
Changelog Version 1.1:
Corrected issues with mapwide tip collision layer
Corrected issues with woodChips sell trigger
Notice: Since this map will end up being uploaded everywhere, no matter my wishes,
please at least include the ENTIRE description and CREDITS when you do...
