FS19 Newbie!

Post by FarmerBeef » Wed Nov 18, 2020 5:40 pm

Hey all, im a newbie to FS19 and just downloaded the Alpine addition on Xbox!
Love it and really got into it - however i see most people on youtube playing on PC? Seems to be way more mods as there isnt many at all on the xbox. Is there a list anywhere?

For the PC users are you using keyboard and mouse or any type on controller?

thanks

I play on PC with a wireless XBOX controller, using the keyboard as and when there aren't control mappings for the controller.

There are hundreds of mods for console, make sure you press down on the left stick when in the modhub to show all mods. It's setup to show only Giants selected Top mods by default. The prompts are at the bottom of the screen showing you the various options and which button to press.

there are 135 pages of mods on Giants modhub.. 101 of those pages are console and pc.. that is 2,424 out of aprox 3,240 that are on all platforms.. I know there are a ton of 3rd party mods but honestly... 2,424 mods is nothing to scuff at for console.. fs17 only had 66 total pages of mods on Giants modhub and only 22 of the 66 pages were on console.. less than 1/4 of the mods currently available for console on fs19.. I play on both platforms and I only really find myself wanting a few scripted mods.. equipment and maps on the other hand are coming out of our consoles ears

Welcome to the forums and to the most addictive video game series I've ever been a part of. :hi:

There are more mods available for PC. There are many reasons for this. The biggest being console mods must pass Giants' testing to be uploaded to their official modhub. Non-licensed brands and custom scripts are not permitted for consoles. There are other reasons but this thread will turn into a PC vs Console war if we start naming them all. :lol:

However, there (as of this writing) over 2,000 mods available on PS/Xbox. If you're just starting out, it should take some time before you get bored trying new ones. Enjoy!

As a newbie to the game, it can be a little overwhelming at times, especially when you start delving into mods. It took me a while to work out what mods are and how they work.

If you open the modhub from the main menu, you need to ensure you are seeing all mods and not just top mods. On PS4 there is a button that switches between the two.

Once you start seeing all mods, there are loads!!
