My modmap I created is working great. Only thing different is that when starting a new game all silos are empty. I notice all other maps i use the silos have "Some" grain or crop levels to them when you start out.

I cannot find the solution to have my map start with products in the default farm silo. I am calling it is a placeable, it has an XML, loads and works flawlessly.

Is there something I am missing? Does the core game add these based on farmer mode? If so, what would cause my owned silos not to start with fill?

Thank you

Yes, the start mode is important. Items from defaultItems and defaultVehicles are only inserted in mode "new farmer" and if they have the attributes
<item ... defaultFarmProperty="true" farmId="1"
Only in this case farm silos will have some content at game start.

Hmm. The silos do posses that attribute. Still won't start with product.

I'd guess you have more than one silo at start?
The game selects the first one (of player). If this cannot hold the bonus grain types, it is ignored.

Hmm. I Did multiple set to defaultFarmProperty. I just tested with only one and still no solution. It certainly has the capacity at 200000l

There must be something different on your mod map, since in standard configurations it works.
For a test you might exchange (temporarily) your mod silo with a default one.

Alternatively you could give your farmsilo already in defaultItems some content. Example:
<item className="SiloPlaceable" filename="data/placeables/farmSilos/farmSiloLarge.xml" position=.. rotation=.. defaultFarmProperty="true" farmId="1">
<storage index="1" farmId="1">
<node fillType="WHEAT" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>
<node fillType="BARLEY" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>
<node fillType="OAT" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>
<node fillType="CANOLA" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>
<node fillType="SOYBEAN" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>
<node fillType="SUNFLOWER" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>
<node fillType="MAIZE" fillLevel="10000.000000"/>

Yes. This.

I tried this and it didn't work. However, I forgot to remove the "/" from my intitial line of code which closed it out before I tried adding the storage. This solved my issue and works great adding it right to the defualtItems.xml

Thank you
