We are back from the Farmcon with lots of new impressions about the Farmcon and the new Farming Simulator 17. We saw many new “faces” we only knew from forums by their nicknames and some old friends. YouTuber, casual user or modder, we had some great talks and many new friendships. Sunday we were on the stage together with Agrarteam Franken and were interviewed by Martin Rabl from Giants and the audience, that was a really cool experience. Of course we do have a list of all the new features shown on the farmcon, you can find it further down in this article, we are very impressed by them.
All in all the Farmcon was a huge experience, which we really enjoyed. We are looking forward to the next one.
