Farming Simulator 19 : Dedicated Server

Post by coolfarmer » Sun Jul 22, 2018 12:50 am

Hello guys!

Just a simple question, on FS17 when you want to run a dedicated server you need to buy a second copy of the game, I just want to know if the same behavior will by applied on FS19?

Personally I hope that the answer is no. Every game I buy on Steam come with their dedicated server (ex.: ARK Survival, Space Engineers, ECO Survival and a lot more). Farming Simulator is the exception and honestly it's pretty bad to ask to your costumers to buy another copy of your game just to run a dedicated server.

My 2 cents! :hi:
Thanks.

I don't think the devs have said anything about that yet. Almost everything we know so far is listed here: https://www.yesmods.com/farming-simulat ... -features/

Not expecting a change, it's not weird either, in my eyes. you are essentially running 2 game copies, when you have a dedicated server and play yourself.

Go say that to ALL other games on Steam where you can have a dedicated server. Files to run it are included in the base price, you don't have to buy twice the game.

This is the proof that you have never run a dedicated server on other game. Imagine you should buy twice every game you want to run a server. Counter-Strike, ARK : Survival (66$), Space Engineers, Astroneers, ECO AND many other popular game. Buying twice the game is just a stupid behavior to make more easy money.

I know that the dev have said anything on that, this is why I ask the question and hope a community manager will see my post.

The point is, they've talked about everything that they're ready to talk about. If there is something they haven't mentioned, its because either its not happening or they're still working on it. If they're still working on it, they won't be sure if that feature will be ready at release time, so they don't tell us.

@coolfarmer, most of those games are twice as expensive on release.
Now, try again, thanks.

What? Nope lol ARK was 23$ on release (dedicated sever included). Space Engineers was 20$. ECO is actually ~35$.
Farming Simulator 19 is 45$ and files to run a server are not included, it's a steal.

Name me one other game where you have to pay a extra copy to run a server! :lol:

Your atleast mixing something up, FS is 35$ (usd), but honestly, I don't really care much about any of this, it is how it is, accept it...

The only catch in your logic is that other games have offered headless server executables for years. The server executable need only work from the command line and would be useless for any purpose other than hosting players on other computers with the full game.

That’s how networked multiplayer got it’s start; first on LANs (usually hidden at companies and universities) and LAN parties, then little known internet severs (still often hidden on company and university networks and servers), then server search engines in the games. All those games managed to make (loads of) money and the server executable was just “free” on the disk if you wanted it or available for download. It wasn’t until the game companies decided they could charge for that, too, that the big commercial servers came along.

Anyway, as far as I’m concerned, I’d be willing to pay a little extra for a server “dlc”. (I think the did that on earlier versions of FS.) All I’d want it for would be to set up a server for me and my kids on my home network. (It’s just not practical for me to pay for a hosting service, given the limited time we have to play.)
