Celebrating 10 Years of Farming Simulator


Stefan had a childhood friend, Martin Bärwolf And he came up with the idea for the Farming Simulator
That’s when he approached me with the idea That’s when he approached me with the idea he said, agriculture, that would be
a great idea He also wanted this game for himself The idea of the game was simply great Stefan and I programmed it, we scripted We edited and recorded the sound We created the models, we built the map Defined the layout And the fields in the game just got bigger and bigger Stefan Geiger is the developer of the simulator Two years ago, he made his big breakthrough with the PC game Farming Simulator You need to keep developing it, where is the next version what comes next,
how will you continue? We have livestock of course,
it’s a big topic and multiplayer, I think, the fans will love it The simulation around agriculture and animal
husbandry is a hit So Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Challenger and
Valtra will also be available in Farming Simulator We gave the tools that we used for the development of the game to the players The players have already developed mods for Farming Simulator 2008 And we thought it was super cool, that people did that Over the time a lot of people of the community, especially modders became members of GIANTS Software Roughly a third of the employees at GIANTS Software have been hired out of the community We now have a huge number of
players with over 15 million units sold worldwide
in over 18 different languages That’s just a huge number of players
and that’s just unbelievable At this point I would also like to
thank the community For the ten years – it’s been a long
road up to now And without you, we couldn’t have done it. We’ll tackle the next ten years and we’ll see where we go.

    You guys made the game I was dreaming of making in 1996 (i was a student of computer science in university) but never thought it would interest a lot of players. And now i'm playing it with my 2 sons ! You guys did and are doing a great job !! Keep up the good work !!

    Greeting! There are some suggestions for the FS 21: carrots, onions, leeks and finally irrigation would be good in the game. If they get into it then I'll be so happy. Until then I can not wait for the FS19.

    Ich bin stolz, das mein Schwager mir vor 9 Jahren auf seinem Geburtstag dieses einen Spiel gezeigt hat, das war der LS09. Es hat mir total viel Spaß gemacht, mit dem kleinen Lizard-Mähdrescher rumzufahren und zu ernten. Am nächsten Tag habe ich meine Mutter damit solange genervt, bis sie mir tatsächlich den LS08 gekauft hat. Es ist krass, einen vergleich zum jetzigen Spiel zu sehen, vorallem, wenn man sieht, wie der LS19 aussehen wird. 10 Jahre sind überhaupt keine kurze Zeit, und ich bin stolz, das ich jedes Spiel der Serie noch im Regal stehen habe. Ich bin mit dem Spiel groß geworden und freue mich auf die nächsten 10 Jahre damit! <3

    I only started playing Farming Simulator yesterday and I'm enjoying it on console. The thing I love about GIANTS Software is that they care about the community enough to allow mods in their games.

    Yes, games like Call of Duty have mods on PC, but they're strictly for private lobbies.

    Farming Simulator doesn't seem to stop you from progressing if you have mods installed.

    Bethesda screw you over in the modding department because some of the mods make things easier.

    I'm was born at 2004. Little after FS 2008 came out my dad was IN LOVE with it. He was playing it all the time. That's the only game he have ever played. Then he started teaching me how to play it. I loved it too. Then with the years I learned how to download games and I was downloading the new FS for him. We were playing them all the time until FS 2011. My laptop can't run anything after this game and sadly me and dad stopped playing it, but we still love the series and I'm happy to see your awesome new projects. Farming Simulator 2019 looks amazing!

    I still remember the first time i played Farming Simulator. It was at a lan, where one of the people there had a shall we say "not so legitimate" copy of FS2009 and 2008 that he passed around to the rest of us. Instantly got hooked because i'd always thought tractors and farming equipment was kinda cool ever since i was a kid. Then not long thereafter FS2011 hit steam and i bought a copy right away. Since then i've bought both 2011, 13, 15 and even some DLCs. Took a break from the series during FS17 but i'm looking forward to making a comeback when FS19 hits. It really is a great series 🙂

    Farming simulator 2011 was my first game in my life since I bought a computer.And the nostalgia of those years since the newest farming came out, this is a lot of memories. that the worker moves strangely, does not take as it should, but still backs and does not take the whole line, it does not matter.It is really great game. (I write via google translator)
