in the streams they were talking about iron ore so you can produce metal. I'm curious how it wil work. In the podcast they emphasized that was'nt mining.
Specifically, just so there aren't any misunderstandings there, it is not "you dig yourself and smelt it" mining. It's a production chain where the mine regularly produces iron that players can use.
So is there specific points in the map where you can place the iron ore mining production building or is it just place anywhere free for all?
It would be cool if you could do something like soil sampling to find the highest levels of iron in the ground.....
Neither. There is an Iron Mine on the map. It provides Iron. It's not something that's gonna get a big reveal at gamescom or anything

X-Box just increased the available space, so why not Sony? Understand this is not a Giants question and more for the console itself, but is there any anticipation that this will happen.
XB had half the space for mods. It just got the same as PS with the update.
Since the limitation is from Sony the chances are small it will be increased.
If you run out of space delete stuff you don't use.

Not really fan of the forestry in fs series since log physics in general have been clunky to say atleast. Well since was introduced in fs15 forestry did not get much love from giants so i guess folks that like logging will get their kicks or whatnot so im glad for them.

Hmmm. Lumberjack Simulator? More Production? Looks like $40 I'll spend at Hobby Town instead. Want some feedback? Fix contracts, and work on 4X support for consoles. That'll get my wallet open.

Hi,

if you play on PC, you can try this:

... And thank @Mmtrx for the workaround.

I'm sure somebody will argue that iron smelting is also farming.

Forestry isn't necessarily farming (once upon a time it was as pretty much everything east of the Mississippi river was sold old growth forest that had to be cleared to do anything besides hunting) but it is most certainly a major part of Agriculture.
