[Dev Blog] Character Customisation

Post by Lisertan » Tue Oct 09, 2018 3:01 pm

Welcome back to the Farming Simulator 19 devblog, where today we’ll be discussing character customization. New and improved in this version, it was vitally important to us that how your character looks and what they wear was as diverse as the options you have everywhere else on the farm - career choices, farm placement and creation, vehicle customization, and so on.

The character represents the player in the game world and we understand that it is important for our players to be able to identify with him or her. Therefore we added some variety in the customisation options. Let’s take a look at what is possible in Farming Simulator 19.

There are eight different characters for our players to choose from. Four of them are male, four are female. Players can also choose from four different hair styles, or if they prefer to do so, pick a cap. There are many different caps, representing almost every brand in the game!

It is, of course, still possible to change the colour of your shirt. Male characters also get the option to wear a jacket if they want to. Last, but not least, there is the option to add sunglasses if players like to do that.

Sounds good? Well let’s have some examples and see how they turned out.

In short: Farming Simulator 19 will give you the chance to look however you like. FS19 is all about choice and we want to give our players the chance to look how they like, when they farm like never before!

The characters were encrypted in FS17 so if it's the same in FS19 there will be no beards or any other character mods.

Hats, glasses and jackets. Will they be removable, or will it be a permanent feature, or will you need to edit the player each time you want to add/remove one?

One in the blog was a Case IH hat so it’s not just whatever’s new at least, shame about the beards but glad we’re getting some character customization

@Lisertan - Will it even be POSSIBLE to mod characters so we can have more diversity in that regard? I would love to be able to edit my clothes to fit my awesome personality.

I am wondering this as well. I would love to be able to go to a shop on the map, similar to how we go to a shop to customize vehicles, to change character look. Maybe the front door of our house at the starting point? or an upgrade to the bedroom in the house? (Interact with icon in bedroom to open character look dialogue).

Definitely hoping we can mod those as well.

Cool. i can't stand working outside without my sunglasses. I have one of those pairs that cuts out haze and glare (similar to that infomercial for those tac glasses) and I have found that truck driving is essential with those. If I were farming, that would apply to me there as well :) So thank you, Giants, for adding sunglasses.

Unfortunately, as with others here, it will only feel like an actual choice if we are able to mod our character looks with textures at least. I don't care about physical models. But if we can at least texture our characters, via mods so we can do so WITHOUT editing core game files (thus messing up multiplayer), that would be awesome.
