    Gabrielmpf got a reaction from moosedawg in Empty Bailer Function   
    I solved this by not using the baler on the last bit of a field or a grass stretch, which I know won't fill enough for another bale. Simple

    Hi,
    One of the things I love most about the game is the variety of different crops and how they are tied to different locations.
    Some of the crops I'd like to see in the game in the future:
    Tea - As with coffee, possibly tied to a new region, maybe India.
    Cotton - Possibly in China.
    Banana / Pineapple - Here, it could be added to the Colombian map, since it's a tropical region.
    Peaches / Apricots - Maybe linked to Italy.
    Pumpkins / Carrots - For more greenhouse variety in the USA map.
    Strawberry / Or any other Berry fruits - Also, maybe tied to the greenhouses in the USA map
    Nut Tree Orchards - Walnut, Chestnut, Pine, Hazel, Almond... These would be awesome to have. Maybe in another Mediterranean map: Spain, Greece or Turkey... or Portugal, we do have them in here as well
    Since several maps are already made and finding new areas for more orchards would be difficult, you could have a similar option to change orchard trees as the one you have for the greenhouses. That way, you wouldn't have to compromise on the map layout.
     
    Hope you guys give these some thought and consideration.
    To me, personally, I prefer this type of add-ons than just more machines. It's what gets me invested in this type of games.
    Thank You, and Happy Farming!

    I've spent a good 5 minutes with the new update. Loaded the game and tried to go to Italy. Still the same.
    No reason to come back. Oh well. Nice effort guys...

    Yeah, that's exactly the thing. FS 19 is just around the corner and by the time it comes out, nobody will care about this game. They missed a great opportunity to make this game a real contender in the farming genre.
    Now, they need go back to the drawing board and start anew. I've moved on.
    But hey, seeing things from a different perspective, I got over 350 hours of game time out of this. In practical terms, that's more than the time I put into about 90% of games I get. So, in the end, I got my money's worth, so I'm not that upset. Pretty good for a mediocre game in terms of technical achievement.

    Still no fix for game crashing when traveling to Italy and Colombia.
    Still no fix for not being able to buy sheep in Germany.
    The biggest issues still haven't been addressed.
    C'mon guys! These updates need to be more frequent. You can't release an update for consoles every month. I don't believe for a second this is Microsoft's or Sony's fault, when other games do it in a matter of days.

    Yeah , that is true. Sorry to say,  game is dead anyhow. No news, no updates,  or any communication whatsoever.  Nice posting with all my fellow  gaming farmers. See you all in FS19. Keep on plowing.

    Gabrielmpf reacted to Krazog in Some suggestions   
    I play this game for about 3 weeks now, really appreciate it, and I have some suggestions about.
    Why can't we feed rabbits and chickens ? Maybe a little food/water consumption will add some realism. Same for cow and pigs, they don't need to drink actually. For example, a little 1000 L consumption per week will be reasonable. From the previous suggestion, add corn culture to feed our animals. Add a paintjob option. Just to change the main color of our tractors/cars. Maybe it's impossible due to licences. But it'll be great to have all of our tractors in the same color. Add an autosave option. Add a female character. Yes, I'm a man, but like to play females in video games  I can't find grass culture, to feed cows with, and a barn to store it. Option will be great for people who wants to specialize in breeding. Add forestry, maybe in a DLC with all stuff. Montana map have a perfect place to do it, upper left corner.  Add more dynamic prices. For example, if we always sell meat to butcher, price will decrease, and increase at the hamburger restaurant.   
    Thanks for reading, guys !

    I agree the game has potential. What is really putting me off the game is the total lack of communications from the developer. Especially here on the forum. The forum is where you should be able to discuss, report issues, and give constructive criticism. Unfortunately you have to find out all the top information from social media sites. I do not subscribe to facebook, but check it every so often for an update. If they would just acknowledge things that are known issues, communicate frequently with the community, a lot less people would be less aggravated.  I too have gone back to FS17 and now awaiting FS19.  Hopefully they will get it together soon, I do want to see them succeed, they have a hell of a concept here.

    At least, and then the water animations will still not work. I figured a work around though. Moved my TV and PS4 outside, then when I hear the in game water sounds I turn on my yard sprinkler.

    They probably dig their own grave with all these bugs. Unless they get their s.h.i.t together with the next update, which I highly doubt, there's no going back from this. The players are already moving on to other games...
    This is one of those games that should've been delayed, for like a year. It's clear they didn't test it properly and even worse, they didn't play it.
    I'll keep my eyes open for any future updates, only time will tell.

    Gabrielmpf got a reaction from hugassi in Can this even be fixed?   
    I doubt that the console can't handle this game, when FS 17 works pretty good with 60fps and with much better graphics.
    The problem is that the game is not optimized for consoles. It is deeply flawed and very wrong at the core. These updates so far show that they're grasping at straws. I expect these problems won't be fixed not even in the next five updates.
    They basically have the game still in its beta stage. Simple as that.
    I love the game, and I'm rooting for it to succeed. But in its current stage, with 60% of the game playable (only 3 locations out of 5 load without problems), I can't continue playing it as well.
    I'm heartbroken, because there's only a couple of games that have had this effect on me, and I have to stop playing, at least until these problems have been fixed. God damn you Techland/Iceflames!!!

    Same here. I mean how hard can it be to fix something as simple as a water animation??? I know there are a lot of bigger bugs, but come on. Nothing like watering your crops to hear water but see nothing. Time will tell. I always tell myself never to pre-order, but this one got me. Hang in there Gabrielmpf, they will hopefully at some point get it right.

    Gabrielmpf got a reaction from Mr Squealypig in BUG - Italy - Long Time to Load   
    So, as of now, I can't load the game in Italy at all. The game crashes every time. Tried to travel to Italy from every map and the result is the same: crash!
    Tried to start a new game and travel from one place to another. Italy starts doing this even from the start. At first, the game takes longer than usual to load, but it does after a couple of minutes. But, as you start purchasing new fields and add new equipment to the map, the game seems to not like this and the loading times take longer each time you travel there. It seems to build up, right until the moment where it can't load anymore and just crashes.
    This has to be the most polarizing game I have ever played: on one hand, it has great gameplay and brilliant ideas with a variety of tasks; on the other hand, it's an absolute disaster in technical terms with bugs aplenty. Technically, it's The worse experience I've had in over 25 years of gaming. As a game, though, it's one of the most satisfying experiences I've had in over 25 years of gaming (only Elite Dangerous and FS 17 can get into the same club). All of this, with the same game. How is this possible?
    My question to the developers: have you guys even played your game? Like, seriously, really play the game like a proper gamer, and see the myriad of problems the game has from the point of view of a gamer. 90% of all these bugs and game-lacking features (real time, high fuel consumption, etc...) could've been avoided had you played the game properly.
    Such promise with a beautiful game, and yet such poor execution. What a waste of great ideas.
    There's an update coming, but my expectations right now are very low. It will probably fix some problems, and cause a few others in the process.

    True, obviously the current way is more "realistic". I did say I was spoiled by FS17 . Therefore, if we are talking realism vs QOL (I agree, simulators should lean more toward realism), then there still needs to be an "unload" feature for both the bailer and seeder to purge the remaining materials so you can swap out just as RL machinery does.

    I was just thinking the same thing. Being able to sell goat milk would be awesome. I grew up around dairy goats, so I'm looking forward to having goats in the game, especially if we can sell the milk too. But I wouldn't mind an orange orchard either, lol!

    But, but... I wanted the orange orchards in Italy. 
    OK, any DLC is good and quite welcoming, but I really want that damn Orange DLC that's currently Gemly exclusive, and impossible for console players to get. Every time I go to Italy and see those walled orchards, I'm reminded that the map is incomplete.

    Looks like the update is dropping next week, and we are getting goats. Really enjoying this game, minus a few bugs and glitches. Hopefully the patches will take care of. I wonder if we will be selling goat milk??
