I am working on a large round baler that makes larger bales. i have the bales set up in the mod folder but how do i make the mod make the big bales instead of the small ingame bales. ive seen it done with small square bales and large heston bales but i cant seem to get the bales to work. i need to know what to edit so it makes the bales that come with the baler

first of all you need to register your new bales in the modDesc.xml

<<baleType filename="myNewRoundBale.i3d" fillType="straw" isRoundBale="true" width="" diameter="" />

In your Baler.xml you need to define the size of the bales that are produced by it.

<baleType isRoundBale="true" width="" diameter="" />

So, the values for width and diameter should be the same in both xml files - that's it.

i have messed with the values and those dont seem to change the size i have scaled up the bale and it shows up in game however it still uses the collisions from the standard ingame round bale

for physical bodies it is highly recommended, if not necessary to have a scale of 1.0
So, scaling a bale is bad idea.
Either build a new one or try to use the "freeze transformation" option in the GE.
