Unit Switcher (v2.2)
How to use it?
Place the a0_Units.zip file in your mods-folder.
Once Farming Simulator 2011 is started, go into Options->Controls, and verify if you want to change the keyboard-bindings from the default;
|– Change PDA-map size:||LEFT ALT V|
|– Change speed-unit:||LEFT ALT B|
|– Change currency-unit:||LEFT ALT N|
|– Change fuel-unit:||LEFT ALT M|
|– Hide HUD:||LEFT ALT H|
Do please note that, once in the game the helpbox will first display the keys when the modifier-key is actually pressed, so you do not end up with a huge helpbox. A modifier-key is; LEFT SHIFT, RIGHT SHIFT, LEFT CTRL, RIGHT CTRL, LEFT ALT or RIGHT ALT.
A text will appear for a few seconds at the bottom of the screen, telling which unit that have been changed to.
You need to save your game-session, for the chosen units to be remembered.
Hiding the HUD has four stages, that it loops through:
1) Show HUD as normal
2) Hide the lower right speed/fuel-panel
3) Warning text about the next stage!
4) Hiding every HUD, and unfortunatly makes it unable to rotate/zoom the camera, and also ignores certain keys.
How to add your own speed/fuel/currency unit
First you need to have been in-game and saved a game-session, to produce the settings-file, which then can be found in the folder;
– Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2011\
– Windows 7: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2011\
Use a text-editor like Notepad++ and open up the file; UnitSwitcher.XML
Hopefully by looking at the file contents, you should be able to figure out how to add your own speed/fuel/currency units.
Please note that the base for multiplying-factor is;
– for speed; KM/H
– for fuel; LITER
Example. Say you want to add a new speed-unit; “knots per hour”. First you need to find out how many “knots/h” correspond to “1 km/h”. I entered “kilometer to knots” in Google, and got “1 kilometer = 0.539956803 knots”
Now add a new line in the … block;
You must quit and restart FarmingSimulator2011, to be able to reload changes that have been made to the UnitSwitcher.XML file.
