The Realismus Modding Team are still working on the Seasons 19 mod for Farming Simulator 19. And boy! What a mod it will be.
FS19 Seasons Measurement Tool
(Update June 24, 2019) The Realismus Modding team just posted an update on its Facebook page. The update tells us two things:
- The measurement tool will be back in Seasons 19. With this tool, you can measure stuff like bales, trees, and your soil.
- There’s still no ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival.) Patience is a virtue…
Seasons 19 Confirmed for Consoles
‘Reallogger’ (one of the developers) dropped a confirmation bomb in the official Farming Simulator forum some time ago. This is some of the stuff that now is confirmed.
Seasons 17 was one of few script mods that made it to Xbox and PlayStation. ‘Reallogger’ confirms that Farming Simulator 19 console players will enjoy the mod too.
The Seasons 19 snow will stick to wheels, and snowmasks for in-game maps (the vanilla map) will be released when seasons 19 is out. Other mappers will need to update their maps with separate snow masks for Seasons to work.
The animal birth rates will most likely change, compared to the FS17 version. Two harvests in one season will sometimes be possible (if the Geo allows.) And the seasons 19 weeds will not look like Giants’ plants.
Repair and Repaint
The base game version fixes repairs and repaints in one go. In Seasons 19, those activities will be split in two. But that’s not all:
- Straw and hay won’t rot if kept away from the rain.
- Weather sounds (like rain, thunder, and wind) are dynamic. More rain makes more noise.
- Animals grazing inside the pens affect how much extra food they need.
What About Crop Rotation?
Many hardcore FS players are hoping for crop rotation to be part of FS19. This is what ‘Reallogger’ has to say about this feature:
Crop-rotation is now (despite denying it) a feature and it will affect yield. Also, for grass, but a minor effect on this. It’s including an in-game crop-rotation-planner. Correct rotation will give you a «free» fertilize-level. Confirmed
Confirmed NOT to Be
Seasons 19 is shaping up to be a must-have FS19 mod for all players looking to make their game more realistic. There are so many features that will make FS19 feel like a brand new game, once the mod is out.
But not every feature will make it. Here is a couple that won’t be in Seasons 19:
- There will be no floods – no flooding of fields.
- Soil compaction is not part of Seasons 19.
So, when will it be out? Not many outside Realismus Modding and Giants know. In yesterday’s update of the Seasons forum thread, ‘Reallogger’ had this answer to the statement that Seasons 19 will be out within two weeks: “I wish”…
