Mod Contest 2017

Hey,

let me claim, that this years Mod Contest brought old and new modders all together and made it to the most frequent Contest of our FS history and probably will be the one with the most downloads made by you, the community, too. In a whole, the modders did a fantastic job and while all of you want to start downloading, I can give you some information up front.

92 mods were send in, doubled entries, necessary mods for one entry which we have to add to the ModHub etc. We declined 9 mods, because of different reason, which I will decribe later on. Nevertheless, we still have 80 unique entries made by our community for the Mod Contest 2017.

If we have missed to find every mod, which is stolen, already released or something similar - don't hesitate to mention it here with a full statement, so we can comprehend it.

• You can rate the mods until the 24th of June, 12 am (CEST)
• Mod Contest mods are only compatible with pc and mac


Enough said, but test before you rate and don't forget to have a lot of fun!

@pfreek, only one thing.
De Terra Italica was never released before this contest.
This version (http://www.farming2015mods.com/farming- ... beta-fs15/) is the illegal conversion of "Land of Italy", FS13 map.
That map doesn't look like "De Terra Italica".
It was stolen both author and all photos published by original author on Facebook.

Cheers

Hi,

This mod: http://farming-simulator.com/mod.php?la ... tle=fs2017
has been made with several parts from other mods. For example the wheels, which are from the John Deere from the modcontest 2011:
https://fs-uk.com/mods/view/17152

The box on the back isn't his either, can't find the original mod but just by looking at the textures you can see that this isn't part of the model. Same for many of the other parts. Like the shovel.

Edit: quick search for the augerwagon: https://www.modhoster.com/mods/jan-tanker-10-500--3
If you look at the bolts, decals and the model you can see it is the same. When comparing in GE you can see it too.

Bednar Pack: http://farming-simulator.com/mod.php?la ... tle=fs2017

The Bednar Terraland Profi that is included in this pack has already been released in FS15:

Stolen JD 3050 parts.

The seat is stolen from the BJR Modding TM Pack from 2011: https://fs-uk.com/mods/view/20510

JD: http://i.imgur.com/XqouMgb.jpg

NH: http://i.imgur.com/1cD3njt.jpg

Texture files from both tractors to show they share the same UV map: https://i.gyazo.com/535eace70d0a5ff85c4 ... 8458fc.png

The driveshafts are also stolen from schlueterfan1977.

JD: http://i.imgur.com/2FdWXSG.png

Schlueter: http://i.imgur.com/R5yogP4.png

You can see the wireframe is the exact same model just flipped around because one was from the right wheel and the other was from the left.



The Fiat 140-90 has stolen tyres from the BJR TM 150 pack also.

Not trying to be an ass, but did you test these mods at all? Strange functionality, massive FPS drops, and game locks when buying and selling. I'm not naming any in particular, but to go from a steady 50FPS (decent for me) to 4FPS as soon as the item spawns in the shop parking lot seems a bit off. Try to sell it, game crash.

There are some good ones here, no doubt, but some trash too. Or am I doing something wrong?

It is an Contest, Giants only watch that the Mods are rule conform. The users must now assess the quality.

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry but this mod contest is a masquerade to the sight of many mods. In addition to what had been said before the fendt favorit 800 already existed under fs17 (https://www.modhoster.com/mods/fendt-fa ... #changelog) , ditto for the 1000 fendt (https://www.modhoster.com/mods/fendt-1050--12 and https://www.modhoster.com/mods/fendt-10 ... by-steph33), the rogator under LS11 (https://www.modhoster.com/mods/challeng ... 5-c#images), joskin wago looks like a joskin modification of blacksheepmodding (https://www.modhoster.com/mods/pack-jos ... aletrailer), the veidemman looks like that of ls11, and i Does not talk about mods that are full of bugs or slow down the game.

Frankly Giants you sold your soul to the devil or what, where is the spirit of the first contests? Unfortunately, the growing success of your game has tilted the dark side of the FS community, which has become individualistic and does not hesitate to hack and poke here and there to fill its laziness and especially its lack of creativity.

I think unfortunately like many others I look forward to the release of CnC to actually play an agricultural simulation after having been a big fan and modder under FS since the first opus.

How should one be able to try all these out (especially the maps) before 24th of June!? :shock:

The mods you mentioned have nothing to do with the contest mods, they are similar vehicles, but completly rebuild.

The contest is pc only, because of scripts/unlicensed brands or errors. After the contest, maybe some modders will convert their mods to console
