System Requirements vs Recommended system requirements

Post by W1der » Sat Aug 27, 2016 10:12 am

These are the System Requirements I find for FS17 ...
I figure this is what you need to be able to play the game as a "minimum"!?
System Requirements Windows Version (*)
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
2.0 GHz Intel or equivalent AMD dual-core processor
Nvidia Geforce GTS 450, AMD Radeon HD 6770 graphics card or better (min 1GB VRAM)
2 GB RAM
6 GB free hard drive space
Soundcard
DVD-ROM Drive (only for retail version)

System Requirements Mac Version (*)
Mac OS X 10.9.1, 10.10.1, 10.11.1, 10.12.1
2.0 GHz Intel or equivalent AMD dual-core processor
Nvidia Geforce GTS 450, AMD Radeon HD 6770 graphics card or better (min 1GB VRAM)
2 GB RAM
6 GB free hard drive space
Why is there no "Recommended System Requirements"?
[Win10] Intel i7-6700K 4.0GHz / GTX1070 Dual OC 8GB GDDR5 / 32GB 2133MHz DDR4 SDRAM

That's actually more of a "recommended minimum requirements". With the FS15 requirements, it was a bit problematic with the latest DLCs/Addons, since those required a bit more power than the average base game stuff. We added a slight buffer to the FS17 requirements to not run into such problems again.
Besides, with those requirements, it should actually be able to handle a few decent mods without the FPS start dropping instantly.

OK ...

Thanks for clearing that out!

I just hope I can still keep my system running on High for 17... :hmm: :lol: I would really not want to spend $200 on a GTX 960, but if I have to, then I have to. :smileynew:
