Just three questions, why the change in tractor horn sounds - ( example Big Bud has air horns )? Will the usable red barn and pickup truck used in the game intro be coming to the game?
Not sure about the sound. I just created a feedback thread in gerneral discussion, feel free to post that there.

I believe the red barn is in there as a deco object? The truck, not that I'm aware of

Do you know if Marwell manor farm passed testing? :)
It didn't, but we've already received an update so we will continue to test.

Mods in testing: you stated today there were 3 maps currently in testing but only listed 2? Is Marwell Manor Farm still in testing?

Thank you for this thread
MM failed shortly before I took the snapshot for the thread. We've already received an update.

Why is everything that did not make it into the base game being released as a mod? There are 42 official mods already, and of those 42 around 35 are machines or maps that should have been in the base game. I realize that time would have been an issue, but I would have much preferred these machines to just be added to the base game with a patch. Instead they'll end up being neglected in the long run, because they are only mods. Same thing has happened in FS17. Sure, some critical bugs are fixed, but as the game improves these mods will be forgotten. Like the change in available wheel options that came relatively late in the life of FS17, and that was never brought over to any of the official mods. And of course the numerous bugs in the mods themselves.
The things we release right now are things that weren't ready for FS19 when we released the game. Having them as mods will allow players to get their favorite tractor (or whatever) back in the game. Patches are rare and usually gigantic in itself, so we don't really want to do that.

Not sure tbh, but if it is noted in our Bug Forum, then it is very likely the QA team is at least aware.

Hi Lisertan, are there any plans to add a control for hazard warning lights (4-way indicators) on console? There was mention on the forum that plugging a keyboard in and pressing numpad2 works. I tried it but the game disconnects the keyboard a couple of seconds after it's plugged in.
Not that I'm aware. Sorry.

Mine is more of a request than a question

Size of a mods folder on consoles is very limited, GIANTS mods alone take almost 50% of this limit, and the game is only 3 months old. That way console players will quickly run out of space for mods
If those mods were bundled up and released as a DLC, it would free up a lot of space for other mods.

Do you have plans to do it (i.e. bundle up your own mods and release as a DLC for consoles)? If not, can you please do it anyway (at least Estancia Lapacho and bigger machines)? Pretty please :)
It's feedback I've seen before and passed on. No promises.

Since gearbox was supposed to be in drive and sound wise in the base game, is there any plans to patch it in later or is it scrapped for fs19? I was most excited for this feature.
We started working with the Modder of the FS17 Gearbox, but he recently stopped modding for personal reasons. Not sure how this continues, so no news for now. Sorry. Will update if I learn more.

Eta on Marwell Manor? I need this map!

Thanks
When it's done (boy I always wanted to post that)

In all seriousness: It's in testing already, but it needs to pass testing. The modder is working hard to get this done :) but I have no ETA

First off, Thank You to you and everyone at Giants. I really enjoy the game.

Two questions,
1. Rey or Leia? Lol.

2. With the last patch, we got an unexpected feature in that we got terraforming. Are you at liberty to say if there may be another big game changing feature in the next patch?

Stone Valley x2, 1 1/2 hours
Marwell Manor Farm, 520 + hours - Retired.....

Unfortunately they are months old without the read on them so they were passed by.

Does Giants have any plans on looking at the overall economy in game? With the amount of changes to land and placeables there looks like a disconnect between animal farming and crop farming. Crop farming was largely unchanged and works quite well on all difficulty settings. Animal farming saw reductions in outputs and increase in inputs and lags behind on higher difficulty settings. Simply changing the difficulty settings doesn't help the situation as then crop prices increase the gap.

I think, as others have pointed out, that the game has a misleading name
The sum of all unrealistic things makes it hard to like the game if you believe the title.
Why do not horses produce manure for instance?
I know what some of you will say: do not play with horses. Fair enough, but the point is why did Giants choose to do horses the way they did?
Does that live up to the name of the game?
