Farming Simulator 19 and the ethics of pesticide brands

I always skip over the details of licensed equipment manufacturers in industrial simulators, treating them largely as different paint schemes, but a new interview with Farming Simulator 19 creative director Thomas Frey makes me more far more interested in the issue than I ever thought I would be. Talking with our corporate siblings GamesIndustry.biz, Frey explained the difficulties of landing licenses, and, unexpectedly, some of…

Farming Simulator 19 announced, with shiny new horses

Skipping a whole number for this year's iteration of the popular farm-'em-up, Giants Software is looking to the future with Farming Simulator 19, which has just been announced for release this Autumn/Fall. By the sounds of it, it should be a  comprehensive update, with a "complete overhaul" of the graphics engine, new crops and farming activities, plenty of shiny tractors, and horses. You can hear…

The Moos (The News): Farming Simulator 17 Announced

Will we, in years to come, be asking "How would you revamp Farming Simulator?" Will we wonder if it's time Farming Simulator took a few years off from annual sequels to rethink what about virtual farming excited people so? Will we dream of an Ancient Egyptian reboot, tilling the soils of the Nile Delta? Or will you, wide-eyed, propose a slaughterhouse with PhysX Flex blood…

The Flare Path: Beyond Visual Range

The Flare Path lights are dimmed today, the wind socks are at half mast. Jim Mackonochie, one of the most influential, approachable, and well-liked figures in flight simulation died on Tuesday. If you've flown a faithfully simulated military jet at any point during the last quarter century, there's a good chance you've enjoyed a game that Jim signed or nurtured. Though most closely associated with…

Feature: I've Got A Brand New Combine Harvester Existential Crisis

Hoe-No: Farming Simulator’s Bottle Mod Adventure

Joe Martin is not a farmer. Not even a simulation of a farmer. But that didn't stop him from becoming one with Farming Simulator. Here's what happened. Farming Simulator 2011 is, on the face of it, not a very interesting game - but if you look deeper you'll find that it's actually very badly made too. It's boring, even to those who resign themselves to…

The Flare Path: Surf And Turf

Mother Nature is up to something. In my neck-of-the-woods cuckoo pint and dog's mercury have begun appearing amongst the leaf litter. The bare treetops are abuzz with avian Morse code. If I didn't know better I'd say a Big Push was in the offing. Gaia is going to try another assault with her Elite Photosynthesizers. It's as if she doesn't remember how it ended last year. How it…

Feature: Simulation & Wargame News

The Flare Path

Mildly perturbed by the lack of Panzerkampfwagen references in The Sunday Papers? Feel that Bargain Bucket needs more locomotive love, Cardboard Children less Parpellimony misinformation*? You're in luck. Every Friday from now until Ragnarok, I'm going to be presenting a ragbag of news and reflections covering all-things simulated and wargamey. If a game features wings, wheels, war, or windlasses, and so much as nods in…
