AutoDrive V

AutoDrive V2.0.0.9

This mod can be used to create a network of routes for vehicles to drive autonomously. Once setup you can tell a tractor that is standing anywhere close to the network to drive to any point, such as the shop, field 1 or to a sell point.

Not fixed or currently not solvable:

[Dedi-Server] problems with vanilla ball cart #538


menu controllable with controller and keyboard #292
debug marker 9_ shows possible errors, but may actually be none
CP can hand over the stone collector to AD (pickup&delivery) #421
separation of map and user settings (different files in the savegame folder) #524
improvement collision boxes (new vehicle measurement) #536

In FS22, vehicles are mostly defined larger (in XML) than they actually are.
With AD, this leads to vehicles on roads with a small (lateral) distance being recognized as a collision even though there would still be sufficient space between them.
To avoid this, the collision to the front, rear, left and right is determined for all parts belonging to the vehicle.
For this purpose, all attachments of the complete combination are measured when entering a vehicle, starting AD or after being folded by AD (mixtures of unmeasured and measured vehicles are normal and not a fault).
Only vehicles, trailers and attachments that do not have parts with rotation around the vertical axis are measured.
For example, trailers with turntable have the movable bogie with rotation around the vertical axis and this can also stand “twisted”.
If a measurement were to be made now, the external collision would be the turned bogie with drawbar, which is much “wider” compared to the trailer just being towed.
Here may now come the objection “But you can also measure when the trailer is at some point straight”, save, load etc.. -> more complicated always goes…!
Currently, 20 cm of “safety clearance” is still added around the outside.

CP uses AD for refueling, repair and parking #351, #433, #494 & #519

AD drives refueling and repair if requested by CP, but settings of CP have priority.
Attention: harvesters are also sent for repair and refueling incl. the current attachments!
In the “Pickup / Delivery” mode with CP field work, the vehicle combination is unloaded at the end of work before parking, if “Park at end” is activated in AD.
AD is only activated in sensible modes, if wrong mode is selected -> notification.
Example: Driving is not useful for e.g. seed drills, but can be used for “ready message”.

Bugfixes and improvements:

Route network debugging extended by “4_” for double-sided routes #259

1_ = End of a one-way route without connection
2_ = Angle for driving backwards is greater than 90°
3_ = Start of a one-way route without connection
4_ = Start or end of a two-way line without connection (new)
