bm-modding at the farmcon

Written by BlackJack. Posted in News

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.

bm-modding under a new guise

Written by BlackJack. Posted in News

While celebrating the fifth anniversary of bm-modding we are very happy to present you the new logo and new design of the homepage. The old web appearance aged quite a bit in the past years. The old homepage did not have a responsive design and was not optimised for all devices. That is now history, from now on you can visit us on your mobile devices and get the latest information wherever you are.

Also for our steady growing international community we have great renewal. By clicking on the country flags you can switch between german and english language. The confusing news in two language, as we had them earlier, are now past. Right now not all of the posts are in english, but we are working full steam on the translations.

We hope you find the new design attractive and usefull and that you keep visiting our homepage like in the past.
