so how many slots do we have now...used to be 1299. Just asking because i wont be home til later.
You'll still have 1299, the problem was that the system was showing an incorrectly lower number of slots for certain vehicles and maps. So it would show 25 slots used for an item instead of 35 for example.
Many where 1 slot instead of what they should of been, thankfully never got close to max limit so mine only hoped up by about 30 on lone Oak after updating. It's a shame we have to have slot counts on console but would rather that than constant crashing and no way of getting logs to find out the issues. Anyways so far so good on the update. One question that some Xbox players might know, does the man kipper still play up as went. On multiplayer the other day and it did it's trick of reverse at max speed again lol, if it did please just pm me or point me in correct direction of thread

Hi O5-Chris,

Is there a plan to add the missing hydraulic connections, etc. to the old vanilla machines with a patch? As they are missing this option from the begining.Or they are too old, and don't worth the effort?

My second question is is there a plan to make the "slow vehicle" sign as config options? As they are mostly used only in the USA.

I'm curious about these topics, as I try to be as realistic as the game allows. :) #soilmodification

Giants most likely will not add american customizations to the ingame machinery, as they are not from the US.

Yes I know they are from Germany, but many models (for example the Bredal spreaders, or Joskin water tanker) has the "slow vehicle" triangle by default. I'm asking they plan to make those triangles as options, so I can remove them if I would like to configure them to EU conform. :coolnew:
Or is there any EU country which uses those triangles also?!

When FS 19 updated today I tried to buy a new piece of equipment and was prompted to sell equipment or buildings in orderly gain new equipment. I then discovered slots. This is unsatisfactory I was basically at a hold up. I could no longer purchase anything at the store no seed, no fertilizer, nothing. Then to find out this is only on Xbox and ps platform. I was at over 1500 slots filled and had to get to 1200 slots. This is not fair and is making me want to quit the game all together. I would basically be stuck doing what I have equipment for unless I sold it to do other jobs. I loved expanding my farm to be able to do different task. This needs to be changed back ASAP

I’m with Oreo on this. I knew nothing of the console slot limitation either.

Have 300+ hours on a game and since this update can no longer buy anything. Never had a game crash or any other symptom of my Xbox one x struggling with frame rates. This is the first version of FS I have purchased for console having been a PC user since fs09. First I found there were no large maps for console, then mods could not have scripts on console, now this forced limitation. Frankly, this game is not fit for purpose with all these restrictions on this platform. Giants should feel obliged to ensure console packaging and console advertisements clearly make buyers aware that although they are paying full price for the game, they don’t get the full game.

With the forza series creating amazing worlds with fantastic realism, Giants need to catch up.

The issue is the engine is incapable of doing what they want even on "big"ish pc's. I know my chip is getting on but I have 2600k@4.3ghz 24gb corsair ram and a rog strix 1070 and even then you still get the Holy Halo of higher detail graphics around your vehicle. I haven't played the console version at all but I will say that the pc version drives me crazy with its flaws and limitations. I think they are locked into a particular way of doing things in terms of the graphics which just don't cut the mustard in todays scene. I hope they sort it out and all the miriad things that are wrong or missing in the game like I detailed a few things in an earlier post in this thread. They need to stop adding new and shiny and make everything work properly.

I knew there was limitations on consoles, i dont buy alot of stuff, i buy what i need, its the slot count, its ridiculous. What really really gets me mad is how come we can't strap down simple attachments, it gets old to run back and forth to grab attachments and drop them off at the sell point, heck we can strap down bales and lumber... That's as far as they get.

It's got nothing to do with the 'engine'. FS19 (and FS17 and earlier) all run very happily on old hardware, though obviously not always at ultra high settings (I've tested it on a 11 year old i7 920 and a 6 year old GTX 670 and got 60fps at 1440p at medium-high settings).

The problem as I understand it is the size of the textures in the limited memory that consoles have (which is shared between the CPU and the GPU). The textures are a constant and until a game engine manages to get around using such textures then it's a limit (think 80s and early 90s graphics for the last time we didn't use textures).

The previous patch (1.4) caused slots of some equipment and maps to be incorrectly reported on Xbox (and only Xbox). This allowed you to buy more equipment than was intended and could cause instability and lower frame rates.

Yesterday's patch (1.5.1) corrected this so that slots are now shown properly again (as it was pre-1.4), but that means some existing save games were using too many slots. Their way around this (rather than just refusing to load a savegame) was to stop you buying further equipment until you removed some things to lower the slot count first.

The most efficient way to minimise slot usage is to buy more than one of the same type of tractor (eg 2 Fendt 700s) rather than two different models as the second vehicle uses far fewer slots (typically 1-4 slots rather than ~25-40) as the textures are already in memory. You can see the number of slots items use in the store (next to the power and speed).

Remember PCs have 'slots' too, just on PC the operating system has more options for moving resources around, though at the cost of performance. Performance drops on PC are much more extreme than on consoles - that's the PC's slot limit.

It's not as simple as that. Bales and logs are pretty much uniform to a degree, implement or attachments come in a variety of sizes and shapes.

You can move anything around the map on a trailer without it falling off if you drive reasonably and not like you are at a racetrack.
