If you have the steam version, you can switch to the beta branch. Before you do this, back up your save folders.
Not sure what you're talking about. Kinda new to pc. Beta branch? And how do you back up save files?

Go to your farm sim 19 folder and open it. Save games are listed there.

On steam, highlight farm sim 19, right click then select properties. Select betas. Select 1.3.0. Will download it.

Engine sounds much much better and it has different levels. You can hear the RPM of the engine according of what you do. For example, if you plowing you will hear other rpm sound.

EDIT :

I'll give you an example. Let's say that you attach the baler on your tractor. When you start the baler, you will immediately hear different sound from the tractor ; its rpm increasing into full throttle.

So, when you start the implement, the tractor's rpm increasing and you hear the changes.
Don't see the news in that - it's been that way in my game since 1.2 - maybe before also...

rpm is already increased in 1.2, or FS17, if you really want to know, whenever an implement is turned on, the sounds might still have improved, but got no idea since im not using the beta

The actual sounds are much better now. They sounding like an open pipe.

Also in 1.3 beta in landscaping the grass texture is wild grass 1st stage.

Last but not least, they fix the Great Plains YP-2425A and now is a planter :)
Thanks for the update. Great news. The map editor they gave console players isn't perfect, but I created a farm with it that quite proud of. The only thing that really bugged me was the flat grass that looked like some ps2 texture. Glad they fixed that.

Is there an eta for this patch?

The purpose of beta edition is to be tested by many people and report any bugs or/and mistakes they might find in order for the devs to release a stable edition.

There isn't any ETA for 1.3, everything depends on how many bugs/mistakes etc users will report. Personally so far I haven't face any problem with the 1.3 beta.

It's been that way since day one with '19 for me. (That's why I really didn't get what everyone was complaining about with respect to sound quality.) Maybe folks just needed better speakers...

Anyway, from the "sounds" of it, I suppose Giants gave in and cranked up the volume so that it is loud enough to suit people that think modern tractors are loud on the inside and that they are just as loud from a few hundred meters away as they are close up? Sounds like I will need to turn down the volume now... :wink3:

Can anyone using the 1.3 beta confirm if the issue with animals randomly changing colors has been corrected or is it still something that needs to be addressed?

I'm on ps4 so I'm just wondering if that fix is part of the pc beta or not.

What about the older tractors on 19? They are not all state of the art. The Deutz Fahr Agrostar on my family farm featuring in 19 is ridiculously loud inside. Or what about the old fiat? The 90's era New Holland, or the mighty old Case from the same decade.

Not all tractors and equipment is brand new and state of the art, European and refined. Some of us in the country still run the rusty, dirty, old, filth spewing tractors of a better age. No aircon, no surround sound and boning jarring ride.

We needed better vehicle sounds in 19, thank you GIANTS for delivering.

PS - My surround sound is state of the art, so I do not need better speakers.

For me the sound "issues" are worse on certain tractors it seems. The middle JD is painful to listen to with a constant underlying whistle which gets worse when using a PTO driven implement. I've tried a few others and found ones I'm happy with now though, could still do with more base to the sound which seems like what they have done reading posts on here.
