Farm Production Pack to FS22

The next DLC for Farming Simulator 22 is on its way and this time the focus is on production and logistics.

The Farm Production Pack is a collaboration between Dutch Modding Incorporated (DMI) and Giants Software, and the pack will bring all kinds of things in order to improve the logistics and resource management.

All in all the pack includes over 20 new machines, selling-points and buildings. This includes a full-blown distribution center for pallets of goods which can become a mini-game in itself.

For the crops there is the washer for rootcrops, improving their selling price. And speaking of selling, there’s also new placeable farm stores in different sizes where you can sell your produce.

The Farm Production Pack is coming April 30th for PC and consoles, but preorders are already open.

Straw Harvest DLC for FS22

There has been a new free update to Farming Simulator 22. It is the Straw Harvest DLC made by Creative Mesh and which had it’s premier in Farming Simulator 17 that now exist also for the latest game in the series. So once again there is the possibility for a pellet industry and new ways to make use of the straw from the fields.

With the free Straw Harvest Pack, we get new powerful machinery from manufacturers Krone and Bressel und Lade. One of the machine highlights is the world’s first mobile pellet harvester – the Krone Premos 5000, which produces pellets by collecting straw and hay swaths from the field. Alternatively, it can be operated stationary with an additional bale shredder. Also included are two balers, the Krone BiG Pack 1290 HDP II and Comprima V180 XC alongside other machines for handling bales and pallets.

To add another layer to the gameplay, a versatile and configurable industry hall allows for storage and processing. While produced pellets can be sold, used for animal bedding, or fed to animals, the industry hall allows more possibilities through configurations – it can be used as an empty hall for parking vehicles as well as storing bales and pallets, or there could be added a hall crane to easier move bulk material, bales, and pallets. Adding an automatic palletizer, the pellets can be processed yet another step and sold at an even higher profit.

Straw Harvest can be downloaded directly in Farming Simulator 22 via the in-game ModHub and is as stated an entirely free DLC.

Case IH Farmall mini-DLC

A new little mini-DLC has just been released for Farming Simulator 22 in order to celebrate the 100 year anniversary for the Case IH Farmall line of tractors.

The Case IH Farmall Anniversary Pack contains three items: the first is the Case IH Farmall 1066 Hydro, a model which was manufactured between 1971 and 1976 by International Harvester – the IH in today’s Case IH – and this classic six-cylinder diesel tractor is still going strong on farms and in vintage tractor circles today. The second is the modern Case IH Farmall C Series, a smaller-sized multipurpose tractor with 120 hp, and probably a bit more comfortable than its fifty year old predecessor. The third piece in the pack is the L630 frontloader for the Farmall C.

The price for the pack on Steam and on Giants’ own site is 1,49 €.

Farming Simulator Kids coming in 2024

Giants Software is going to broaden their Farming Simulator gaming series with an all new Farming Simulator Kids geared towards, well, kids obviously. The new game is produced in cooperation with John Deere, so it is likely to include tractors and the likes from the iconic green brand.

Aimed towards younger children, the new game will focus on audiovisual presentation instead of text, and provide a child-friendly environment to play in. Virtual neighbors – including some anthropomorphic animal characters – display their needs for help and ask young players to harvest crops, or prepare a delicious sandwich.

They will also be able to explore farm locations to grow and harvest healthy crops, or care for adorable farm animals like cows, chickens, or geese in their stables. The game will include mini-games like gardening and sandwich-making as well as the possibility to visit their own farmers’ market and meet characters to interact with. As big tractors and other vehicles are a must, kids can operate a variety of John Deere machines.

“We’re thrilled beyond measure to introduce young children to farming in a playful and sheltered way,” says Thomas Frey, Creative Director at GIANTS Software. “With John Deere as our ideal partner for Farming Simulator Kids, we’re creating an educational and unforgettable – even inspiring – farming game for young players, one that may even nurture their general interest in farming.”

“It is a pleasure for us to support such an appealing project, which introduces children to agriculture in a playful way and awakens their interest in food production,” comments Stefan Mügge, Manager Marketing Communication at John Deere.
