Re: Giants to try and get license for real cars and truck

They never talk about anything they're doing, or share their plans for the future with their fans, it's like they don't give a crap about their fans once the cash has exchanged hands. Few companies will openly discuss contracts or discussions publicly. It's hardly unique to GIANTS. Yup, they would ...

Re: Giants to try and get license for real cars and truck

For my naive part, i dont know enough about licensing issues to understand what more that would be required on say Fords part, other than to say 'yes, you can put our products into the game'. Its essentially free advertising, right? It's almost worthless for Ford in your example. Everyone knows the...

Re: Giants to try and get license for real cars and truck

But you could say the same thing for John Deere or Case. There aren’t to many brands as easily recognized as John Deere in the world. This game isn’t making them any more popular. But it's a farming game, so they're at least more likely to get something out of it - a ready made 3D engine for doing ...

Re: Giants to try and get license for real cars and truck

I've said before, there is nothing in it for the brands you've mentioned. While all make equipment suitable for off-roading, and so suitable for farmers, the amount of exposure they'd get from FS would be zero. There is literally no incentive for them to join. They'd be far more interested in racing...

Re: The last DLC of FS19?

Probably less than the Claas Platinum DLC, probably more than the other DLCs. Martin Rabl himself said it " won't be a tiny one".

The Claas Platinum Expansion had 37 items plus 1 unique bonus item, but I doubt this will be that big. I'd expect this one to be somewhere between 20 and 25.

Re: The last DLC of FS19?

Nah, there won't be 58 items. Like most I think we'll get just a Deutz-Fahr DLC, possibly with a sprinkling of SAME or Lamborghini (also part of the SDF group). I remember reading recently that Deutz-Fahr are trying to make a push in North America too, so Deutz-Fahr makes complete sense when conside...

Re: The last DLC of FS19?

I suppose they could in theory, but they never have before and it's highly unlikely they would now. And if they do it wouldn't just be the expected Deutz-Fahr DLC.

Where are the DLC content numbers comming from. I'm out of the loop with that, so I have no idea.
I counted them myself, using the relevant pages on the FS website for those DLCs I don't have and the Kverneland/Vicon DLC, eg here.

Re: The last DLC of FS19?

I myself still play on Fellsbrun, close to 500 hours on there by now. And in FS17 I had a Goldcrest save with around 700 hours. Which kind of proves a new map wont interest me either. I can never be bothered to switch :grin: I never understood why giants maps got so much hate. I enjoyed all of them...

Re: The last DLC of FS19?

They have 21 tractors and 4 combines, in the website so Deutz would not match the 58 coming We aren't going to get 58 items in a single DLC. It's arisen from speculation from press releases and existing items. People have put 2 and 2 together and come up with 5. See my posts here and here and Marti...

Just a quick note to say I've apologised through PMs to vondeylenfarms for my poor choice of words a few days ago and he accepted it.

Re: Question About Map Creating

In short, no. In practice it would need a ton of work to convert. GIANTS use images for terrain height and terrain types, so if a map has a similar system (highly unlikely), that part might be easier to convert, but it would leave you with a completely empty landscape and nowhere near the detail of ...

Re: The last DLC of FS19?

If the game evolves from FS19 as every other game has evolved from others then it shouldn't be too much work to bring a DLC for FS19 with an eye to the keeping work involved in converting it to the next game to a minimum. So much of the development time invested in any DLC would be needed for FS2x a...

I don't think any new crop was added midway through FS15, in FS17 we got sunflowers as a new crop and then the DLC brought sugarcane
Nope, no new crops in FS15 after release and the same with previous games as far as I remember. As you said, only FS17 has introduced new crop in a DLC.

Re: Mods In Testing - Fan Discussion

I live in Australia, so it Saturday here when it's Friday in Germany, where Giants is based. I always hope for good mods on a Saturday. But the testing list doesn't update for me so I don't know what's there. 🙃 GIANTS aren't based in Germany, though they do have an office there. I'll be the first s...
