Something new is coming…

Well…I guess nothing new is really coming for any of us who have been playing Farming Simulator 2015 on PC and Mac.  But if you have been waiting for the console version of FS2015, your wait is almost over.  Yes…the wonderful world of Farming Simulator 2015 will release on PS4, PS3, XBOX One and XBOX 360 on 19 May.  While I don’t own any of these console platforms, I won’t be able to experience game play but I assume it will all be the same as what we experience on PC and Mac.  Although I’ve heard the ability to add mods may not be available for the console versions.  If this is true, then this is truly bad news for console players.  The ability to install mods (or modifications) is truly cool.  While the default game is certainly fun.  The ability to load different maps, equipment and utilities such as Courseplay takes Farming Simulator 2015 to a completely different level of play. Of course, mods do from time to time cause issue with the functionality and stability of the game.  This may be part of the reason mods may not be allowed initially.  From what I understand the console platforms require Sony and Microsoft to approve any mods or DLC made available and again this might be part of the reason mods won’t be readily available at time of launch.  In my opinion it is for these types of reasons that game play on a PC is far superior to that of the consoles.  But that is another discussion for another time…

Anyway….I’m sure the launch of the console versions will also mean we may be even closer to the official release of the 1.3 patch.  The patch is currently in public beta, but I’ve steered clear of it.  However, I’m certainly hopeful the 1.3 patch addresses many things.  The biggest issue I’ve found is just with drive dynamics.  While it’s been a while since I’ve driven a tractor in real life across a field, I don’t recall the drive dynamics being anything like they are in the game version.

I certainly hope everyone had a fantastic weekend with your virtual farms.  I have more blog postings coming over the next few days.  Thanks for reading!

Until next time…

Happy Farming!!!
