The Modern Classic DLC from the Mod Contest is now available for PC and Mac

At FarmCon 17 the winners of last year's mod contest were honoured. Besides many amazing prizes, the modders also had the chance to propose and implement a commercial DLC. The first DLC "Modern Classics" from Mattxjs is now ready and can be purchased for the PC and the Mac in our shop. The Modern Classics DLC brings you 11 new vehicles and devices from the 90s that let you experience the technology of this time.

The second DLC "Grimme Pack" from Team FSI Modding is still in progress.


We would like to thank Mattxjs for his work and wish you all a lot of fun with the "Modern Classics".

We need not ask. There may be a conflict before we get the release too?

... Hopefully?

As it is called a DLC I had never questioned the fact that if they will be available for consoles or not.
But Listertan's post really made me feel concerned. I hope they would be available for consoles too.

I had the same thoughts - as far as I knew the DLC would have come to all platforms, and discussion in the "Proposed DLC - next steps" thread did include console users. I (perhaps negligently) presumed it was for all platforms, but perhaps not!

Edit: their Facebook page does say it's currently PC only. But of a bummer, but then it does say "for now", so I guess it's coming. :)

It's stunning. Just stunning. My personal highlight is having a great version of an old fashioned TX34 in the game and the Loadall too. Some great starter equipment and all-round great equipment for small farms.

The "problem" here is that it is not a GIANTS DLC. It's basically (almost) the same as Straw harvest. We can always make sure all our DLCs are PC and console, but we can't for stuff other people create.

So, I can't guarantee anything, but as always: I'll not forget you guys.

Call me naive, I'm just trying to get my head around it..

Mattxjs created the content, but aren't Giants the publisher to the PS Store/Microsoft Store? The straw harvest, of course, you guys had no input, and it was published by the 3rd party (I've forgotten who they were lol). Surely, where you are publishing it, it's less of an issue?

Excuse my ignorance lol

What Kind of legal thing? The brands are all in FS17: Case, JCB, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Kverneland, Lemken and of course: Lizard

Maybe because of scripts or ... please someone can tell the reason (someone who knows it)? thx

Sony und Microsoft don't allowed 3rd Party DLC's.

This was my question above.

The content is created by Mattxjs, but published by Giants. If you look at the Straw Harvest (created and publised 3rd party) it's understandable.
