The long-awaited Farming Simulator 22 game is coming soon. GIANTS Software might have taken a while to prepare the new title for its fans, but November 22 is pretty much a few days away, and that is when the game becomes available on multiple platforms, including macOS, Windows MS computers, PlayStation, Xbox, and even PS Vita.
One of the reasons why the developers took so long is because they have put a lot of effort into ensuring that their game is accessible not just to computers but also to console players.
Such an effort indicates that the new and improved 22 version should be far superior to its predecessors. As such, the excitement among the players is as high as it can be, and people are eagerly waiting to get their hands on Farming Simulator 22.
It is also worth noting that GIANTS Software promised new and improved graphics, features, and other goodies that the players can expect once they start the game.
Having said that, some fans of the franchise are just as excited for the mods that will begin popping up after the game itself becomes available. Farming Simulator 22 Mods promise to be even better, particularly when you have such an active modding community.
If you have been eagerly waiting to try Farming Simulator 22 after its release, you should also keep an eye on the mods that will become available shortly after the game goes live. Some mods might take a little longer because of how large they are, but small objects are an example of how a mod should be pretty simple to implement.
In case you have not tried modding a video game before, you might feel a bit lost. This article will give you a few decent tips which will come in handy.
#1 – Figure Out What Mods You Want
As previously mentioned, the modding community is quite active in the Farming Simulator franchise, so you can expect to find a lot of different mods for your needs. From simple objects and smaller machinery to tractors, buildings, and even new maps, if there is a way to make your farm feel more alive and bustling, you can expect a modder to come up with a new addition.
Seasonal changes are worth a shout as well. Before, the feature was not available in the base game, and players had to install a mode to enable seasonal cycling akin to that in the real world to make the game more realistic.
However, Farming Simulator 22 promises to have this feature, so, at most, you will likely seek some small adjustments if the initial seasonal cycling aspect of FS22 is missing something.
#2 – Use Reliable Sources
It should not come as a surprise to find out that there will be quite a few different websites that offer various resources related to Farming Simulator 22. However, when the game is so popular, it is also natural to encounter websites that look to exploit unsuspecting players.
As such, when you are looking to download mods for the game, stick to the official game website (it also promises to release various mods) and recognized and reliable communities. Otherwise, you might end up downloading a mod that has a cybersecurity threat, and even reliable antivirus software might not be enough to protect your device from it.
#3 – Check for Compatibility
Early on, you will be playing the game without mods simply because they will not be available yet. However, once you start to look into available modifications, do not be surprised to see incompatibility and other issues when installing a mod.
A mod might not work properly depending on your computer and the game’s version itself. These cases are rare, but you should still check for compatibility and make sure that the game’s version is compatible with the mod. If not, update it.
Another aspect to talk about is how the mods for the game come in different formats. Some will have the .exe types, whereas others will be in archived ZIP or RAR formats, so that is also something to consider.
Finally, if you are unable to launch a mod after downloading it from one source, try checking other communities and whether they can offer a similar mod.
#4 – Avoid Too Many Mods
As a rule of thumb, you should avoid installing too many mods simultaneously, particularly if they are larger mods. New maps and texture overhauls are a good example of how some mods take a significant amount of disk space and make the game feel more clunky. As soon as you notice that Farming Simulator 22 is underperforming after you installed certain mods, disable them, and you should notice a significant improvement in the performance.
