Engine updates in FS19. Direct comparison FS17 / FS19

Post by Lisertan » Thu Mar 15, 2018 4:00 pm

For Farming Simulator 19 we have made a lot of improvements to the GIANTS Engine and the result is impressive. A lot has happened, especially in the so-called post-processing. High Dynamic Range Rendering allows us to display the complete spectrum of colors at the same time, the added Bloom will make light irradiation much more realistic, thanks to SSAO all objects in the game now cast their own shadows, which will be realistically cast thanks to the new Light Scattering technique. The sun on the new dynamic sky now serves as a light source and the clouds, which are now voxel-based 3D objects, reflect the light absolutely realistically.

Finally, we have also made some improvements to the surface textures. Different surfaces now not only look much more realistic, but also react differently to light incidence and reflect light more or less strongly or weakly, depending on the material.

These were a lot of technical terms, but you probably wonder what the result looks like. For this reason we would like to show you the first two comparison screenshots today.

All screenshots were taken at the same time of day, in the same place. We use the Estancia Lapacho, which will be included in both the FS17 Platinum Edition and FS19.
Please note: We are still in a very early alpha phase, so not all the screenshots of the FS19 are final yet. In the further course of development, some changes will follow.

Wow, the difference is incredible!!!

Lis, are you able to comment on whether or not this new engine will increase draw distance? I can't judge from those screens, but that's one of the areas of FS17 that is visually jarring.

Does the new toy engine increase your game's system needs?

Looks astonishing. The ground detail looks fantastic, and has more of a 3d element to it.

Also, given that the photos are direct comparison, and that the screenshot has it in it, could we see the AGCO IDEAL in FS17 for its last "hoorah" before FS19 comes out? I admit, it could well mean nothing, but it got me thinking, that's all :)

:shock:

Erm.... Well..... I'm at a loss for words of how to describe how good those screenshots look.

That's an incredible difference.

First thing I noticed before I read the text was the shadows on the ground from the stubble, and the ridges formed during seeding.


And that sunset! Wow!


Can we have more photos yet? :zunge: Not going to lie but I'm rather hyped now. :lol:

These look great, I like the look of the sky and the trees. Also the vehicle textures look pretty good, the improvements on the shadows are wonderful and welcome.

I think I need a front loader to pick my jaw if the floor cause those graphics are stunning especially in light of the fact that they’re taken at the same time of day from the same angles
