[Dev-Blog] New Mission System

Post by Lisertan » Fri Aug 03, 2018 12:59 pm

Welcome to our second devblog for Farming Simulator 19, due later this year. In this devblog we’ll be talking about the tweaks we’ve made to the missions system to help get you playing the way you want, faster.

First of all you no longer need to travel across the map to interact with mission givers. A new contracts menu lists every mission that’s currently available, detailing how much money you will get for completing it, as well as what you’ll be expected to do. This means less time spent going between missions, and more doing what you want to do - farming! There are also no longer time limits on missions and you can save while a mission is in progress, so you can work at your own pace.

We’ve also given you the option to complete missions without leasing the equipment. This has two benefits - first, you’ll get more money from the mission, as you won’t have to pay the lease. Second, it allows you to use your own equipment for missions, meaning as you build up a speciality and a garage you can take on more missions and make more money to expand your farm. Leasing is still available for the early game and those that might want to try out new vehicles before buying them.

We’ve also added a new mission type, hay and silage baling. This will involve every step of the process, from cutting the grass to turning it into bales and finally delivering it. Weeding missions are now their own category, rather than purely a part of the fertilization process, including using the new sprayer tool on more developed weeds.

Transport missions are also returning from Farming Simulator 15, asking you to deliver goods from one place to another throughout the map. Take a serene drive through the new landscapes of our upgraded game engine and make some money while you’re at it.

Finally, missions are being added to multiplayer, letting you complete them cooperatively. This gives you more things to do with other players than ever before, and ties into our larger improvements for multiplayer in Farming Simulator 19.

We hope you enjoy missions in Farming Simulator 19, either alone or with friends, when it releases later this year.

Sure. It's the new system so it's like this on all platforms.

Will the mini-map be updated everytime we add something (like a barn or a silo)? For it to show on the top down view?

Are those prices listed on easy? Do they scale with difficulty? What would the comparative price be when playing on hard?

Also, why wouldn't the scale be shifted heavily the other way in terms of savings for using your own equipment? It feels like only losing a few thousand bucks for being able to harvest a big field like that with the biggest combine in the game isn't really a choice at all. Also unless the lifetime of vehicles changed for FS19 from FS17, with the rate vehicles depreciate in the base game, including fuel costs, I am betting you will lose a lot more than $2,217.

EDIT: I should clarify that I'm not trying to be overly critical. Myself (along with many others) have discovered we love playing the game competitive-cooperatively using MP-Manager mod on hard. With the new multiplayer options in FS19, playing on hard mode it seems like we could have a similar game without mods (aside from lack of seasons and MR), but these missions could be game breaking if the prices were too high. I do not wish to simply turn them off though, however, because it would add a lot of life to multiplayer and open up more options for contractors (who cannot normally make a living on our servers due to lack of work) with more options for jobs. I'm just wondering how it will work out in FS19 and thus my questions.

New favorite word ... "cooperatively" ... :mrgreen:

And "transparency" is well noted! *thumbsup*
