For Farming Simulator 19 we have made a lot of improvements to the GIANTS Engine and the result is impressive. A lot has happened, especially in the so-called post-processing. High Dynamic Range Rendering allows us to display the complete spectrum of colors at the same time, the added Bloom will make light irradiation much more realistic, thanks to SSAO all objects in the game now cast their own shadows, which will be realistically cast thanks to the new Light Scattering technique. The sun on the new dynamic sky now serves as a light source and the clouds, which are now voxel-based 3D objects, reflect the light absolutely realistically.
Finally, we have also made some improvements to the surface textures. Different surfaces now not only look much more realistic, but also react differently to light incidence and reflect light more or less strongly or weakly, depending on the material.
These were a lot of technical terms, but you probably wonder what the result looks like. For this reason we would like to show you the first two comparison screenshots today.
All screenshots were taken at the same time of day, in the same place. We use the Estancia Lapacho, which will be included in both the FS17 Platinum Edition and FS19.
When you download a mod file it will usually come in one of three file types.
How to install Farming Simulator 19 mods
1. EXE These are the easiest to install. Once the file has downloaded just double click on it and when it runs it will install itself, done, run the game and test it.
2. RAR These are compressed files, these can contain any files or folders which have been compressed to make downloading quicker. When the download finishes you need to extract all the files within the rar file. You will usually end up with either exe files or zip files. RAR files are also used for the map downloads and will usually require extracting to your data folder.
3. ZIP These too are compressed files. Check to see what files are contained within them. If there are zip or exe files then these will need to be extracted and exe files run. If a zip file contains the mod itself then the zip file needs to be copied into the mods folder of the game.
XP: User\My Games\FarmingSimulator19\Mods
Vista: Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator19\Mods
Dont forget that if you have the German version the folder names will be slightly different.
Windows XP and later will open zip files but you will need Winrar or a similar program to open rar files. These programs will also work with zip files.
