EDIT: I found the problem. There was a TipCol layer of Goldcrest Valley hiding on my map, blocking it ><

I have a problem with a map I'm editing/re-creating.

In some fields, in certain locations. The combiners stops spitting out straw, and after a while they spit it out in a big pile.

It's always in a square area, but i can't find anything in GE that allows me to edit the terrain or what not.

How do i fix this problem? ><

The tipCol layer is so you can tip or dump harvest anywhere but places you shouldn't like rivers, roads, and silage bunker areas other than inside the bunkers. It's easy to fix, it's done in the infoLayer. Paint or erase and re run the script.

Have that exact same problem, thing it is the old river that blocks it.

I talked to Stevie (well known map maker). He gave me these instructions and it worked great.

for tip mask you select tip mask in the terrain info layer drop down the switch to the info layer view(same as creating navmesh's), use the brush to paint in the tip block layer on the map or remove it where it shouldn't be. Basically where you paint white you can not tip, what is clear means you can tip, When done save the map, quit GE load the map again switch to info Paint and check it has updated to what you painted. If it has you can now go into scripts, fs2017, map, create ground collision map and then wait. Once it's finished save quit. Load load the game and test your changes are working in game.

I also tested and found to get this to pull into a previous game save do as follows.
Start a new game and save
Copy the "tipColMap.grle" from the fresh gamesave to your old gamesave
The tip collision will now e in affect in your old gamesave.

Hope this helped
