    I agree, there are some quality of life, controls, day length, and camera issues but in general, I'm liking it. I agree 100% of the updating mini-map - that's probably one of my favorite features as well as the integrated Tablet themed UI, that's a nice touch making it feel more modern.  I like that there's a "tutorial" to help you get familiar with the game elements and they seem to explain things a bit better. I don't mind the amount of equipment they have so far at all. Other farm sims can be a bit overwhelming with all the different types of equipment all at once that you have no idea what 90% of it is for. This one paces you a little better in the "My Farm" scenario, which does a good job of introducing you to farming if you're new to the genre, which I like.
    I like the idea of having to use your own equipment for the missions too, it is interesting to say the least if you are familiar with the farming game genre. On the other hand though, I liked doing missions in another farming game that provided you the equipment because you were able to try out new/different/bigger equipment, which helped you further on when making purchasing choices. Rather than the save game>rent equipment>try it out>reload saved game method. 
    Edit:  I also REALLY like the field status window that pops up on the right of the screen when near/in the field that gives you all the pertinent info regarding its status and the percentage of each variable. Very comprehensive and quickly lets you know what to prioritize.
    The other good thing is the developers seem to be listening to some of the issues we are having and have already mentioned several things they are working on for the next patch to tweak things a bit better. For the most part, I feel it's been a very smooth launch. Good Job Devs!  I am eager for what will come in the future!

    Hey all, long time simulator gamer here. Just wanted to say I'm enjoying this game so far. Haven't played through the whole campaign yet but so far I really like the crop diversity. The amount of things to do for money is great. The missions system is great too. I love that I need to use my own equipment. The equipment maintenance is a nice touch too. 
     
    I also love that the mini map updates in real time. Irrigation is a thing! I mean there a re lot of great features here.
    I'm really impressed. So far I think people are being a bit harsh. Yes I know we need more equipment. THAT'S EASY! It'll come. The bones of this game is great. I can't wait to see more. Lets give them some positive feedback, as well as negative. I hope to see some tweaks in the game soon and new equipment on the horizon. I'm sure there's a long list of changes they want to make based on the feedback I've seen. I hope to see list get shorter soon. Thanks for a great game so far. Here's to making it even better!

    Can we get inverted control option for front loader and like equipment to lift and lower the bucket/forks ect. I play in inverted mode for camera and it quite jarring to have to force non inverted for some controls. Please do this for the console versions.

    With you 100%. Especially on the missions and having to use your own equipment, that’s an interesting touch. I accepted a job without thinking and then realised I had to supply the product myself so had to gear up with another greenhouse to get it done. And on the fetching equipment mission my tractor developed an engine fault so I had to limp to a maintenance shed to get it fixed so I could finish the mission. Really good, different stuff in this game.
