I would accept them keeping the info untill this weekend because of that, people paid money for that exclusive look.
If paying for the farmcon was only a choice of will, yes you are right.
But I can't go to farmcon even if I want to pay.
Because I don't live in EU. I literally have to invest thousands of euros to get there.

This is just plain sad.
We are literally hunting scraps of information from different sources and we got nothing in Giants official forum.
Brilliant.
Can I come home before I post? :D

I mean, we were ALL at FarmCon, there is obviously no post in the forums if no one is here. I'm around now, so let's see where that ends.

We are talking about FS19, a game which seems to be a hell of a lot better than FS17 and you expect me, I mean especially me, to be patient?

Please accept my sincere appologies but I can't be. There is no way to that.

If I was able to come to FarmCon I would have definitely done that. Since I couldn't, this my one and only window, opening to FS19. What else am I supposed to do other than asking for tons of information? :biggrin2: :biggrin2:

Call me lazy :D but for now I highly recommend this link

https://www.yesmods.com/farming-simulat ... -features/

As it's 100% correct.

That will at least give a great overview over what has been said at FarmCon.

I haven't seen any gearbox. So I'd say it's not there.

I have a question about TrackIR support, I know it works correctly, but will it be developed more with a head inclination (eg Roll), which does not work.

Will it also have TrackIR support for the farmer himself, where he can also move his head like in reality. It would be very interesting.

I think we all understand that EVERYONE at Giants was at FarmCon over the weekend. From the opposite perspective, a few things I think Giants (as a whole) needs to consider.

One, not everyone is at or can even attempt to go to FarmCon. Even at a "sold out" status, the number of people there represent a very small amount of the total amount of people looking for information.

Two, the event has been promoted, by Giants, to the point where the masses expect something to come from it. Yes, it is a big event for Giants, but I don't think many outsiders really care too much about the FSC. I'm sure its a fun event in house, but it's something many don't get too excited about. Therefore, everyone else is anticipating something more relevant to them.

Are we wrong to assume that most, if not all, of the information shared to the attendees at the event was prepared in advance? Couldn't a small, informative release been prepared in advance and released during the even (As it was at E3)? There was a trailer for the platinum edition released last year right at the beginning of FarmCon 17.

Yes, a few of the attendees did share their experience, and the link was informative...but to the great majority of us who don't speak German, those sources (few and far between) aren't a whole lot of help.

Finally, many (not including myself) are looking to pre order the game...which is actually available for pre order right now thru certain retailers. Isn't it just a little bit contradictory to say "be patient" when Giants is already allowing retailers to take consumers' money for a product that isn't really known about...let alone been seen?

From what I've read thus far, the new features sound good...and it appears Giants as done a good job understanding what fans are looking for in game. However, from a promotional standpoint, I think there is a lot left to be desired. This seems to happen during every year. The hype builds up at the beginning and then there seems to be a big let down (usually around the time of FarmCon). Then Giants is left to work on building it back up again. I would think it would be better to (widely) inform fans in advance of when information can be expected rather than allow speculation to catch wild fire status. Keeping certain things secret is perfectly fine...building hype is fine...just keep the flames under control.

Honestly, FarmCon was never made to be an event to release info about the upcoming games.
It got hyped up by Giants because it actually is a big event for them, a big part of it is modding, which is kinda specialized info.
And they never even implied they were releasing details to the masses.
And in my opinion a 'small release' by Giants would have been just as "useless" as the current info we have now.
It could never hold all the details they shared at FarmCon. That's why they are making the Dev Blogs...

Sorry...but as I've looked thru the forum for the past 2 months, anytime a question was asked about things in detail, FarmCon was included in the answer. Not "FarmCon...for those attending". It would have been very easy to say that those attending FarmCon will get information at the event and they would follow up whenever for everyone else. This has been a tactic Giants has used in the past and still does...careful wording to suggest something without actually committing to the actual answer. It comes off as drumming up interest for FarmCon without actually giving anything up. Many of the guys tuned in to the live feeds with hopes for a little information but were left disappointed.

All I'm say is, be genuine in what they are doing. It's very easy to do. Know the audience you're speaking to...especially on the English forum. Know that, while the people from Giants will be at the event, the audience you're speaking to will probably not be.

At the very least, a release by Giants would have been confirmed information upfront...without people having to decide if what was being shared by others was true or not. Besides the information in that post, there was A LOT of other information floating around that was far different. Controlling facts is NEVER useless. Allowing others to control information without an company provided source is irresponsible.
