All V1.2 versions require the new included zip support files to be placed in your mod folder. This version uses new xml coding for many things different to previous versions.
Due to the many changes in the finished map you MUST START A NEW GAME & SAVE.
Marhu’s Placeable stop milk sale is included in the zips but is only necessary if you want to stop the automatic sale of milk at midnight. If you are preppared to collect the milk before midnight each day you don’t need it. The Kotte Universal Tanker Mod is needed for this.
UHT milk and the Milk Max Machine. Simply deliver the collected milk to the Milk Max at the dairy and fill the machine. It will turn on automatically and prodcuce UHT milk in barrels. The barrels can be lifted onto a trailer(See the Marhu Website for the trailer) and delivered to any of the lettuce icon’s on the map for sale. The further away the more money you get. There’s also a UHT sell point at the main farm and I also placed a sell trigger at the front of the dairy see yellow marker on the floor in game which is just a short loader lift. Be carefull when delivering milk to the Milk Max as the normal milk sell trigger(blue floor marker) is behind the dairy but has space to pass to the Milk Max with the tanker.
For steamed potatos see the mod pack I uploaded. There is a steamed potato store with trailer fill conveyor and digital display in the salad factory Yard. Use the Krampe SB3060 in the mod pack and haul to a sell point when demand is high for a better price. I have modified the potato steamer pallet trigger so it can be filled on either side with a pallet loader to help with production from the 2 potato washers. This place gets very busy when production is at full tilt. For compost from the potato washer I could not get the compost sell point to recognise filling from a bucket shovel. However when I filled the KrampeSB3060 with compost and tipped it at the compost sell point I did get paid. All of the machines will accept much larger quantities and run for longer periods than the placeable versions.
There are 2 versions of the map for download: The High System Spec and the Standard System Spec. The differences are the HSS spec map has higher terrain lod distance/blend, detail, tree clip and LOD and needs a good High end PC or gaming rig to view the map at it’s best. The HSS version of the map was never intended to run on a standard spec PC system. The SSS version has standard settings for tree clip, lod and terrain distance and will play on lesser spec Pc systems. The actual map designs are exactly the same. You will not notice much difference when you first load the 2 versions up but once you start hiring AI you will see the FPS fall in the HSS version unless your PC system is good.
As always I can not say that the map will perform as intended on your pc system.
We are playing the High Spec version although we can only play it on medium settings with around 7-8 AI drivers before the framrate drops below 45fps. Our specs are all intel xenon quad core pc’s, 8-16gb ram, Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, Nvidia 680gtx and 780gtx.
645mb Zip. Unzip the main file and place the zips inside your mod folder.
Both map versions come with New support zips which must be placed in the mod folder along with the map file.
Mods you will need for the map. Kotte Garrant universal tanker, Joskin Betimax RDS animal transport trailer. I have also created a BRV mod pack for the map and it’s available to download of the maps Facebook Page. Link further down the description.

Hi Stevie…..The map is awesome, but I am unable to get the hired man to work. It will start and run for a short distance and then stop. Any suggestions??
Downloaded the map tried to launch but just get the spinning hourglass. Any idea? Thanks.
Steve you have mod conflicts in the mod folder, they are the only things that do that. Rename your current mod folder to say mods2, create a new mod folder nad just put Back Rock Valley and it’s zip files in it. Load the game and test if it now loads it should do. We have found 2 mods so far that stop it loading and they are:
zzztriggerextend and zzzmultimoving . There may be more and some maps may have those 2 built in.
Hi Randy, my honest answer is I don’t know as I don’t use hired man. Jerry one of the guy’s who tested it had course play set up on all fields bar the cowzone grass meadow, it wouldn’t work in that field for some reason. I have seen course play being used on the map in videos and twitch streams or do you mean an AI driver if so daft question but have you bought the fields. AI was tested in all of them and works.
Yes, I have bought the fields. I’m using the same tractor and planter in Ringwoods and the hired man works fine in Ringwoods, but I’m unable to get it to work in Black Rock. There must be something set different in Black Rock that’s not allowing me to use the hired man. Both are great maps, keep up the good work.
Seems there is a little trouble with the fertilized fields, no change in texture making it impossible to know where the fields are fertilized
Taro textures work fine, You start with some fields pre fertilized.
Hello Friend! I wanted to tell you that there are some flaws in your map , at the factory compostsellpointPP2U diesel tanks , fertilizer and water do not work , I hope that the fix or tell me how can I do , I hope your response as soon as possible thanks
Hi! The map has another problem is that some do not work silos , want you to answer me as soon as possible , otherwise the map is fine, thank you
Hi Jairo the Final versions of the Black Rock Valley go live for download in around 2hrs time on the maps facebook page. The Update to the final is huge and not just a few small changes. 100’s of fixes and new things added for the final release. Sorry for the late reply but I don’t get on here much. Stevie.
how can i find link to Your Facebook page.
i really wanna test you nap.
i am very very curious :):)
Well done 🙂
Hello! I think you have not answered my problem, I tell you in the factory compostsellpointPP2U diesel tanks, water and others do not work, and farm silos there are some that do not work, have the necessary mods but still do not work .
Randy The stop/start of the tractor often happens if the field is pre fertilised prior to the field purchase , if your seeding machine is a combi one ie:- it seeds and fertilizes at the same time ,this will stop the machine. A seed only machine is required .Alternately drive it manually on the first turn .
I was wondering if I can tell me where the dairy is
I have the final version of this map
My email Adrea is [email protected]
Just wanted to say played many different maps but Black Rock Valley tops them all. Im playing it in the same mods folders with other maps and I have had no issues with mod clashes or lag.
Nice map Thanks
