What will happen to offical FS17 mods when FS19 releases?

Post by masseyharris » Thu Oct 04, 2018 11:52 am

Just wondering, as I'm still going to be playing my FS17 map for a good while even if I buy FS19 -

What becomes of the official modhub? Is it cleared of all the 2017 mods to make way for FS19 ones?

I know it's possible to find many, if not all, of the mods on other sites, but I like to download from the official site if I can.

Personally? I suspect that the in-game modhubs will be game-specific. Ergo, FS17 mods will continue to exist on the FS17 in-game modhub, and FS19 mods exist on the FS19 in-game modhub, similar to how the in-game modhub is already delineated between PC and consoles.

Unsure what their intentions will be for the web-based modhub. Could either create separate sections of the modhub, or add a flag/identifier to delineate between FS17 and 19.

I hope it will still exist, but there is no longer a 2015 or 2013 modhub, so it got me wondering.

As FS17 will also be on sale after the release of FS19, clearing the FS17 in-game modhub cannot be an option I guess.
And I also think there will be no new in-game modhud mods for FS17 as all the Giants team will be quite busy with FS19 and it's mods.

The ModHub for FS15 still exists : https://www.farming-simulator.com/mods. ... tle=fs2015

I guess the same will happen when FS19 will be released, the mods for FS17 will still be available on the ModHub, but they won't be visible directly,

Well, I never knew that :)

Sorry if I'm thick, but is there a link to that on the main Farming Sim page?

Anyway, thanks for answering, I will save the link from your post for future.
