Re: Console and Giants.

I do wonder about what the possible art direction of the new game is going to be like. Basically how its going to look. The main reason I didn't like the look of FS-19 is that it seemed like it had very up to date modern lighting techniques thrown over graphics textures and effects that have been in...

Re: Console and Giants.

The current debacle over Cyberpunk 2077 shows how difficult it is for studios when releasing a game that spans the arrival of new hardware. I think Giants like a lot of studios at the moment are being careful as to where they set their sights with their new game and how to promote it. I'm sure CD Pr...

Re: Oxygendavid

I agree Mobias. Though i do think they need to get some QA tester's, so they can process the mods correctly. It's no use having secretary's running the mods through a program to check for spelling mistakes, one mistake at a time. Go figure how that is productive. Definitely. Considering the fact th...

Re: Oxygendavid

Comparisons with other games studios not withstanding it seems like Giants need to employ an HR department thats sole duty to deal with the modding community so everyone is kept happy and on board. Didn't Giants used to have a community manager who posted here quite regularly addressing various issu...

Re: Oxygendavid

Its a shame all this has happened now. I was really excited for OxygenDavid's Calmsden Farm map project. It looked like it had a good chance of getting me back into playing FS again. It looks incredible. I'm sure everything will get sorted out. For some very obvious reasons people are really struggl...

Re: Oxygendavid

That's 60 workers to do all the work, from making new maps (OxygenDavid even said that is 1,000's of hours per map) , new equipment (just had a DLC), internal and external Q&A, R&D for new stuff, core engine maintenance and support, Web developers, and I'm sure I'm missing more. They are on PC, XBo...

Re: Oxygendavid

The whole situation with Giants and modders just seems so weird and generally terrible. Like modders are treated with a certain begrudging reluctance despite the fact that if it wasn't for modders, particularly map modders like OxygenDavid, the game would be NOTHING. I've really got into playing the...

Re: Future of FS21 graphics?

Has anyone seen the screen shots of OxygenDavid's upcoming PC only map Calmsden Farm? If someone told me they were screen shots from FS-22 I'd believe them.

Re: What is FS 19 Missing the Most????

Seasons is already in the game though, but just not in the base game. Although to be fair the same could apply to most of the voting list. I'd like to see better looking weather, better physics, better lighting etc etc. Basically FS needs a bit of a visual overhaul going into the new console and gra...

Re: What is FS 19 Missing the Most????

I voted for dynamic ground deformation. I think some sort of version of it will definitely come with the next FS. I don't think it'll be much, it won't be quite like the Mudrunner games, but I think some sort of 3D ground deformation should be possible in the next game, even if its just confined to ...

Re: Farming simulator 21 release?

I've never really bought into this whole idea that if the base game had seasons, had more realistic and weightier physics, and whatever ever else, then the average casual gamer would be put off it. I think thats a bit nonsense. When FS-19 came out and I was reading around on general gaming forums li...

Re: Pc is the way

When it comes to general gaming there are definite reasons to love consoles. Sony especially have amazing exclusives for the Playstation I think. I too prefer sitting on my couch gaming and actually that is something I miss from playing FS on console. I know I can rig my PC up through my TV but its ...

Re: Pc is the way

I used to be a console farmer and moved to PC a couple of years back. There is something to be said for the console version. Its a simpler experience and and you can get a lot of gaming pleasure making more out of less. I jumped ship to PC during FS-17 when there was a much bigger difference between...

Re: Farming simulator 21 release?

Surely Giants could add Seasons as it is into the base game but just have it as an optional feature with a simple on/off toggle? Wouldn't have thought that would be hard. It makes sense for them to add it to the base game since it would be there for day one. I think for a lot of people FS-19 didn't ...

Re: Farming simulator 21 release?

I think people need to realise how much the additional game modes they added to FS-19, and certainly in respect to how they worked with the placeables system, mucked everything up for map makers. Its a big reason there's been fewer decent maps for FS-19 and its a big reason why maps have taken longe...
