The Kubota Pack DLC and patch 1.6 for FS22 is out

Giants Software has released their new Kubota Pack DLC for Farming Simulator 22 and you can read a longer review of it here.

In short it contains – which should come as no surprise – a number of Kubota tractors and other orange-coloured machinery. It also brings the possibility to go as a passenger in vehicles where there are spaces for passengers. (As far as I can tell this does not include the side-seats in tractors.)

As follows, the basegame was patched with patch 1.6 just before the DLC premiere as well with a bunch of minor modifications and fixes.

Changelog patch 1.6:

AGI free DLC for Farming Simulator 22

Giants Software has released yet another free DLC for Farming Simulator 22. This time it is a pack with silos, augers and more from AGI. The pack also includes a new method to make seed from your harvested grain by using a seed treater.

It can be good to be aware that in order to get the AGI Pack you have to “buy” it in Steam’s store. The price for purchase is zero though, so it’s very affordable.

AGI is a globally leading manufacturer of portable and stationary grain handling, storage and conditioning equipment. Engineering unique, market-specific systems, they maintain an international network to supply the world’s food infrastructure with more than 35 different brands.

In connection with the AGI Pack DLC release Farming Simulator 22 is also updated with the 1.5 patch which addresses some game quirks.

On the road in (new) Austria

With the latest patch for Euro Truck Simulator 2, SCS Software has released the new version of the Austria part of the basegame map.

Unlike the earlier revision of Germany, the Austria part is a total rework of every road and city in the country. And it shows! The difference from the old version is huge as this part of the map now is up to par with the latest DLCs when it comes to visual presentation and road network.

The fact that big parts of the country consists of very visually delightful Alpine views does make the result of the rework even more welcome. I can’t help but find myself loving to drive through the tunnels and across the valleys.

ETS 2 Update 1.44
