The DLC proposal – Next steps

Post by Lisertan » Tue Aug 29, 2017 11:55 am

Earlier this year, we’ve held our Mod Contest 2017. The winners of the mod contest got the chance to propose a commercial DLC and eight of them took the chance and created a proposal. We at GIANTS Software had a discussion about them and asked for your opinion as well (see the diagram below for details). This way, we picked three proposals and invited the creators to our Swiss office, where they had the chance to present their ideas and talk to our dev team about their proposals.

Mattxjs (Modern Classics Farming Pack) and Team FSI Modding (Grimme Pack) joined us in Switzerland, however Smety (Fendt Expansion) politely declined, leaving us with two possible DLC’s.

We’ve listened to both and now you can as well (You will find their presentation videos below). We decided that both ideas would be a great fit for our game. Therefore, we declare both of them as winners and we will create both DLC’s in collaboration with the modders.

We will keep you updated on the progress and let you know once we have something to share.

I was hoping to get the Krone Big M but these DLCs will also be great additions to the game I think *thumbsup*

And imo, Giants have done a great job for allowing both proposals to become a DLC :hi:

Question: What happens if an American modder were to win the next competition? Not saying I have a shot at winning, I know I don't, but there are tons of American or North American based modders. How would one do the presentations if they couldn't travel there? Would ya'll do a video conference or something, or could they not submit an idea at all?

Nice to see someone has thought about those of us who are crazy enough to try and play Farming Simulator as a small holding instead of a huge sprawling monster farm by choosing the Grimme pack, should make a nice change to actually be able to use the smaller tractors for something as at the moment there really isn't any point in having tractors like the Hurliman H88 on the farm as its so low power it can't really do enough to make it worth having.

I use it for driving the weeder with small wheels into crops.

I prefer the newer looking smaller tractors, I like having a smaller, lower hp tractor for fertilizing, weeding, baling, etc.. Plus they're more fun to transport, they look better being towed on a utility trailer hauled by a pickup :wink3:

Will these DLC be covered by the season pass or is it going to add to the mounting cost to the game? Also Giants is there a rough estimation of release as DLC/Official DLC has been sparse to say the least

I don't think any DLC will be out of the seasons pass coverage. At least Giants so far made all 3 DLC's available for seasons pass.
