Re: PC Negatives

I moved from console to PC and there is a bit of an argument in favour of consoles in that console players definitely make do with getting a lot more out of a lot less. Its a simpler experience on console so you end up playing the game more I think. I moved from console to PC during the FS-17 days w...

Re: fs17 revisited

GIANTS don't view it as a priority for modders to have a proper Blender Exporter. If that is their attitude with something vital like that, how can we expect them to help modders in other ways. Farm Sim to GIANTS is a casual, arcade game, little more than an Agriculture showroom demo. At least that...

Re: fs17 revisited

Either way a decent map border takes a lot of work, and it seems Fs19 map makers are either incapable or just can't be bothered. I've sometimes wondered what tools Giants could provide to help make decent map borders. For example could they add something into the Giants editor to make bespoke borde...

Re: fs17 revisited

Whatever the reasons or motives its a shame as a good map border makes a map feel so much better. Its the number one most important thing I look for in a map. How immersive is it and does it make me feel like I'm in a living breathing world and part of larger area? It does seem like I'm in the mino...

Re: fs17 revisited

I'm going to get shot down in flames for this but I wouldn't mind in the slightest if Giants removed all the forestry side of the game and replaced it with much more involved livestock farming. Giants could do well just making a Forestry Simulator game and having it as a stand alone franchise. (runs...

Re: fs17 revisited

For example, you can get the game SnowRunner, there are 3 different seasons already included and they look fantastic, most of the time i enjoy the nature in this game, than gameplay itself. Michigan for Autumn Alaska for Winter Taymyr for Summer Go check out 4k videos inside youtube about gameplay ...

Re: fs17 revisited

What I feel personally is I'm stuck in the middle. Fs17 feels and looks dated, plus It misses some of the few good new features of Fs19. But Fs19 is not balanced, and is missing so much of what made Fs17 great. In some cases it's gone backwards. Neither game is good enough anymore. What depresses m...

Re: fs21

If todays leak is correct - that the PS5 is going to priced at £599 -then maybe people will be playing games on the current gen consoles for quite a while.

Re: fs17 revisited

Still don't know what all the lighting problems are everyone complains about. The lighting is way too bright and harsh so 2D textures (basically all environment textures) look incredibly flat. On top of that everything has a washed out look to it. Its just not a nice look.The lighting of FS17 was m...

Re: fs17 revisited

The environment in FS-17 undoubtedly looks a lot better. Maps look much nicer and far more immersive. The FS19 harsh lighting is just so unforgiving on various environment textures making everything look really flat. On PC you can muck about with shaders and get the game looking somewhat nicer, does...

Re: fs21

It'll be very interesting to see what the uptake in the two new consoles is like later this year and where Sony and Microsoft price them at heading into an inevitable global recession. Rumours earlier in the year suggested prices around the £400 - £450 making them more expensive than the current mac...

Re: Dinamic sky

Wow that aurora looks great. I used to have great fun mucking around with custom sky textures for FS-17. It always amazed me how much it changed the look and feel of a map by just changing the sky textures about.

Re: WIP. A Farm on the Palouse.

Hi everyone. Just updating this thread after a long while. Recently a couple of people have got in contact with me asking about whatever happened to this map. Its still on the go. I've been using my free time in the current lockdown to do a lot of work on it. From a design point of view its all done...

Re: PC Gamers: What controller setup do you like?

I use my PS4 controller for playing on PC but I've often thought it would be a lot of fun using a wheel set up. Its just such a big investment though for a decent set up like Logitech dedicated FS wheel and controller.

Re: Old crappy gear overview - Probably many on PC only

I was thinking of bringing the John Deere up there into my game.. Is it this one? https://fs19.net/farming-simulator-2019-mods/tractors/johndeere-old-4xxx-series-v2-0/ I tried adding an earlier model, but found they didn't have 3 point connections in the back, so then i didn't have much to use it f...
