I want to suggest seperate controls for frontloader + forestry
At the moment i have 2 joysticks for the forestry controls but i want to use them to for the frontloader controls.
Tough it's quite annoying as i can't set seperate controls for both of them
Can this be added in some way or so? Cause it's quite annoying to work like this :(
Thanks for considering and reading my message

could you please explain what the exact problem is?

Surely we could change this for the next version of FS, but we have to understand what the problem is ;)

By creating a mod you could change 'everything' you want to ;)

I will try to explain it better.
For the forestry equipment in game i use 2 joysticks.
Logitech attack 3.
But i setted up certain combinations (with buttons and axle combinations) that i specific setted up for the machines.
Tough i would like to use my joysticks to for frontloaders, wheelloaders and teleloaders (i believe thats the correct name for it)
But i setted my joysticks up for forestry and not for the other equipment i explained above.
I hope this is better explained.
I want to use different combinations for the other equipment.
If you need more information please explain what else u want to know.
I am no modder nor do i have the experience to code.
So i am hoping you could help me and i think other people would like to see this change to in game :)
I will give a example later when i am home. Currently at work

well, the basic problem was clear.
Just thought would have been a 'really bad case' or something ...

Anyhow, as stated in my last post we can't change it for FS15 due to reasons of consistency.
But I will try to bring this issue up in discussions for FS17.

Creating a mod out of an default vehicle is not that complicated ;)

It is when u use a lot of mods that are also the vehicles as i mentioned above :)
Thanks anyway ill just use the mouse/keyboard stuff for it :(
I also have no clue how you would ever add the joystick buttons/axles to a mod so it uses that to do things.
As example lift loader up, lower loader.
Bend the attachment to it and such.
