This mod adds a ride on lawn tractor that can cut grass, collect grass, crops and much more.
Do you hate manually punching all the grass around your base? Well then the ride on lawn mower is a perfect vehicle for you. Cut all the grass around your base with ease! What started as a small Proof of concept has grown into a feature rich Mod, that should satisfy a few of your farming sim desires. We’ve added a few treats here and there to make it a better overall experience.
Needs to be installed client and server side. And both need EAC (Easy Anti-Cheat) to be turned off! There is no server-side only version of this mod as it contains custom code. This mod needs to be installed on both client and server for multiplayer.
This placeable vehicle is unlocked either by finding (or buying) the schematics for the chassis and the accessories, or by unlocking Grease Monkey Level 3. In its base configuration, it can only remove grass and bushes, but doesn’t collect any items. Once you equip your first Lawn Tractor, a journal entry will be added.
- Grass cutting functionality
- Grass/Bush collecting
- Basic plant collecting
- Planted crop harvesting
- Player crop reseeding
- Can be dyed
Toggling Lawn Tractor Features
In order to enable the mowing/harvesting, you have to press F. The function will toggle alternating with the light, so to only toggle mowing/harvesting, press it twice.
This is the simplest modifier that you should be able to get quite early. It will only collect items from grass and bushes, and the yield will be significantly lower than when harvesting by hand/tool. You can get a fully functional grass collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Living Off the Land Level 1.
With this modifier you will also harvest and collect items from various other small plants, like cotton, coffee or mushrooms. Yield is also significantly lower than when harvested by hand/tool. You can get a fully functional plant collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Living Off the Land Level 2.
Upgrade for the plant collector, that gives much better yield, a bit less when harvested by hand/tool though. It should be able to collect every growing crop and also gives seeds back. You can get a fully functional plant collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Living Off the Land Level 3.
Basic mod that protects all player plants, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally mowing down your own plants when tidying up the surroundings. You can get a fully functional plant collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Advanced Engineering Level 2.
Upgrade for the crop protector, that will automatically reseed player plants when harvesting. Seeds must be filled into the vehicle inventory, as you will not get enough seeds back from harvesting mostly. Speed for harvesting and reseeding has been limited to make it a bit more realistic and to make it not too overpowered.
There are 3 different damage level variations of the Lawn Tractor, which all come in 7 different colours, so 21 new randomly placed vehicles in the world. They can all be harvested for parts and give the same resources as regular cars, plus a few additional items. Pristine Lawn Tractors have a good chance to drop either a fully functional modifier part or one of the other rare resources you need to build the recipes. A damaged Lawn Tractor sill has a small chance to give you a rare resource for the recipes, while a wrecked vehicle will only give the usual scrap that cars would give you.
