Overview

Whether you’re one of the legion of rabid fans of the popular Farming Simulator game or just someone who wants to learn the basics of 3D modeling and simulation (and have fun doing it!), you’ll love this handy guide to get started creating your own vehicles, maps, landscapes, and tools that you can use in the game and share with the Farming Simulator community! With the help of 3D modeling and animation expert Jason van Gumster, you’ll find out how to:
  • Use the GIANTS editor to add custom elements to maps and landscapes, place props, paint foliage and ground details, adjust user attributes, and trigger events from your map.
  • Group parts of components (such as a wheel or exhaust system) into a particle using the Particle editor, and then create custom actions for your particles.
  • Create custom 3D mods in the GIANTS editor and then export them to Blender, Maya, 3DS Max, or FBX to really shape them up.
  • Enhance your mods with textures and custom sounds.
  • Customize the behavior of your mod using Vehicle XML.
  • Define new objects and behaviors in the LUA programming language and write to the GIANTS application programming interface.
  • Share your mod with the Farming Simulator community for feedback and cheers!
  • Powerful tips for creating your mods.
