awkward acceleration??

Post by mespalin » Tue Nov 20, 2018 8:18 am

Been playing for about an hour and I just can’t get over how awkward the vehicle acceleration and engine sounds are. Whether I am in the Mahindra UTV or a tractor, the accelerator is so sensitive, almost seems there is no “light” throttle, the vehicle just goes straight to fast. In addition I get going pretty fast before the engine even sounds like it is accelerating. I don’t know but the whole physics is different, the tractor even continues to coast with the cultivator in the dirt. Hate to say, not liking it so much.

I just went 30 miles an hour in the mahindra without the engine leaving the sound of idling?? Anyone else experience this?

You are not going 30 miles an hour. In reality you are going over the speed of sound.

If you play with a controller on pc, go to then main meny options and turn dead zone to 0 on all the options.. This fixed the lag on the throttle and brakes for me. I can image they did this to try to create a feeling of a heavy machine, it got annoying right away. They could have added a rollout/shuttle shift aggressivenes option🙂

Well if someone knows how to fix the controls in a PS4 let me know. I have tried all three and it is ridiculous. It goes from zero throttle to almost wide open, there is no range in the throttle at all. Cruising down the road with 36000 lbs of bales, 15 miles an hour, at idle. Something is not right.

I haven't managed to spend much time with FS19 yet, but this was my first impression too. Acceleration and sorry feels and sounds off..

I will put more hours into it to get a better feeling for it and then make my conclusion.
And again consoles don't have dead zone and sensitivity settings for steering and throttle.

I’ve played it for half an hour and i al so noticed the accelaration and the decelaration. Maybe i need to get used to it.
