It seems that Farming Simulator 2013 has been selling well. Focus Home Interactive has announced that Giants Software’s farming simulator, Farming Simulator 2013, has hit over 2 million mod downloads. Yeap, you read that right. Over 2 million mods have already been downloaded through this Hub – directly accessible through the game’s menu – which offers a selection of the best mods.
According to the press release, these mods, and the hundreds of unique mods that have already been created by players and shared through many fan sites, allow Farming Simulator 2013 to offer a much longer lifespan with constantly renewed gameplay experience.
Thanks to the development tools supplied with the game, players regularly create and share new content, including new vehicles, maps, equipment, buildings, as well as brand new environments, gameplay modifications… and even crazy things like flyable planes! Giants Software have joined the fun with their own mods: their “Lizard ATV” off-road quad is currently the most popular mod, with nearly 350,000 downloads! This off-road vehicle allows virtual farmers to quickly get around their immense farm, by using paths that would be inaccessible to regular farming vehicles.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
