Welcome to NI Modding

Featured

Welcome to the NI Modding website. We are a small team consisting of four members – alwyn, henly20, knut and rh. We enjoy making and releasing mods for Farming Simulator. Feel free to browse our site to see what we have released and what we currently have as Work in Progress (WIP)

You can also follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages

Announcement

It has been quite a while since we last posted anything on our website and social media. During that time we have witnessed the release of fifth edition in the Farming Simulator series – Farming Simulator 15. Many of you have been messaging us to see if we are working on new mods for the new game and if we are converting old favorites to be compatible with FS 15.

However, it has been very difficult year for NI Modding. It is with regret that we must inform the Farming Simulator community of the death of our member Henly20. This hit us very hard and has been difficult to come to terms with. You will appreciate our difficultly when we say it is 12 months since he died. Henly20 was Alwyn’s brother, and as they were very close and enjoyed modding for Farming Simulator together, Alwyn has found it difficult to look near FS and has decided to take a backseat.

Henly20 was the mastermind behind NI Modding and while he chose not post openly on Farming Simulator discussion forums, behind the scenes he helped a lot of people with their Farming Simulator modding, from novice modders to other mod teams. He was even approached by the makers of the Pro Farm DLC for Farming Simulator 2011 with a job opportunity, but refused the opportunity to delve into the limelight.

We do not wish to go into great detail regarding these events, and we hope that you will respect our wishes. We also hope that you can appreciate that it has been very hard for the remaining members of the team to look at Farming Simulator without our valued friend. We’ll be in touch soon.

Kind Regards,

NI Modding

Ferguson System

The Ferguson TE20 is Genesis in the tractor world. It is the Northern Irish man Harry Ferguson that stamped his mark clearly on the tractor world with the invention of the “Ferguson System” 3 point linkage which is available on the vast majority of tractors available today.

The idea behind the Ferguson system was that the weight of the ploughing was transferred to the rear wheels increasing traction. The weight transfer allowed the light weight tractor to do the work of heavier tractors. Improvements to the Ferguson system such as draft control improved the weight transfer and increased the amount of work the little tractor could do.

Important Information

Please note, given the size and scale of the Ferguson tractors in relation to the other equipment for Farming Simulator, the linkages for the tractors and machinery are scaled down to suit. Therefore, for best results the items in the Ferguson System pack should only be paired with each other.

WIP Ferguson Pack

Background

The Ferguson TE20 is Genesis in the tractor world. It is the Northern Irish man Harry Ferguson that stamped his mark clearly on the tractor world with the invention of the “Ferguson System” 3 point linkage which is available on the vast majority of tractors available today.

The idea behind the Ferguson system was that the weight of the ploughing was transferred to the rear wheels increasing traction. The weight transfer allowed the light weight tractor to do the work of heavier tractors. Improvements to the Ferguson system such as draft control improved the weight transfer and increased the amount of work the little tractor could do.

The Ferguson system also had one very important safety feature which no other Tractor not using the Ferguson system of control had at the time. This is a safety relief control. If while plowing the implement was to strike a solid object, ie large rock or tree root the hydraulic pressure is released, the weight transfer to the rear wheels is immediately reduced to such an extent that the weight of the tractor is actually supported by the implement. Thus leaving the back wheels to harmlessly spin. This prevents damage to implement and tractor and reducing the risk of rear roll over that a lot of tractors at the time suffered from so badly.

The Mod

We have modeled a Ferguson TE20 tractor and a selection of variants. Given that the Ferguson system was new and unique at the time, a range of Ferguson implements were manufactured to complement the tractors – we have modeled a selection of them.

Tractors

The iconic TE20

 

Old 4wd axles from World War Two were the basis of four wheel drive conversions of the TE20.

 

A forerunner to the DOE Triple D, this TE20 dual drive doubled the available power and traction.

 

As farming became more mechanised, a loader was introduced, this is the iconic “banana” loader.

Tractors were also used away from the farm, fitted with road tyres, this Industrial version of the TE20 has a striking yellow colour scheme.

Machinery

The 3 Tonne trailer, who needs the Kane Halfpipe?

 

The Ferguson baler was a progression from rucks of hay. This baler can bale both grass and straw.

With the help of a bale sledge, bale handling is made much more easy.

 

 

A loader mounted bale grab further reduces the need for manual labour. Shown here with a weight block, for added stability.

 

If a front loader isn’t your thing, a Ferguson lift mast is the solution, with the added benefit of a tow hitch so you can pull a trailer behind you with the mast attached. A range of implements for both the loader and lift mast are available in the pack.

 

Mowing grass is made easy with the Ferguson cutting bar, a modified version of the horse drawn version.

 

Bit of a size difference…

 

The Ferguson side rake can be used for grass and straw to further increase efficiency.

 

Before silage harvesters were invented, this is how grass got from the field to the pit. The Ferguson buckrake can be used to scoop up grass or straw in the fields and return it to the yard. It can also be used on standard tip alternative mod heaps.

 

For cultivation, there are a range of ploughs, discs and cultivators available in the pack.

Potato planting is made easy with the Ferguson potato planter

 

Need to transport something in style? The Ferguson low loader is the solution, ideal for machinery, or even square bales.

 

The Ferguson dung spreader features a ground drive – you stop, it stops spreading. Just remember to turn it off when on the road…

 

Sowing of seed and fertiliser is made easy with the Ferguson sower. It’s even easier with the Transport box for seed and fertiliser bags

 

Finally, need to reduce ground compaction? How about dual wheels or cage wheels? Transported in style in their very own trailer.

Release information

Release dates are yet to be confirmed – stay tuned.

 

 

 

 

Springhill Valley – The Springhill Farm Extension

 

Springhill Valley is an extended version of the popular Springhill Farm map. There are 193 Acres (78 Hectares) of prime agricultural land at your disposal – more than double of Springhill Farm. It is situated within a landscape of rolling hills and tight, twisting roads.

There are three farm yards. The main Springhill Estate farm yard is the home of the dairy cattle, a small farm to the south is the host to the chicken and lamb production. To the east there is a medium sized arable farmyard, while to the west, there is an anaerobic digester plant which helps meet the energy demands of the adjoining village. 

Mod Features 

  • Watermill crash problems which affected poor computers have been fixed
  • Map is Zuhammer mod compatible
