I've made the perfect feller buncher using the stumpgrinder as the base for cutting, my problem is that the cut time is way to long on the grinder, how can I go about editing the time it takes to cut?

I see in the LUA it has a cut time but I have no idea how i can edit that into my mod with a new lua file, any tips would be super helpful

the time values/limits in the StumpCutter.lua are hard coded, so you would have to write a custom script to get a different behavior.
But you can also try to use the WoodHarvester.lua.

By the way, which feller buncher did you build?

yeah I figured they were hard coded,

I've made all the fellers that you see to date, there have been a few people that changed my skins but I originally came up with the idea to use the harvester head as a buncher head. The harvester head works well for cutting but its not the way real bunchers work.

I just released a new one and I'm getting very close to a real life style buncher only problem is the cut speed is too slow, I cannot for the life of me get my new blade to point to a new lua script for a faster cut time i just get errors.

I normally don't ask for help but this one has me stumped (excuse the pun haha)

This is the new one

cool machine :)

So ....

two options are available as I see it right now.

a) try to use the WoodHarvester specialization instead of the StumpCutter
b) use the original StumpCutter.lua to create a new one with an adjusted cutting duration

yeah were working on making a custom one with the same script but were just having trouble getting it to apply, we will see waht happens

maybe you could get some inspirations from other mods:
to see how you can add custom scripts to a mod.
