Sometimes the most relaxing games are just the best. Leave all the action, violence, and aggression at the door and jump into something with far less at stake. Out of anyone out there, few probably understand that as well as Giants Software does with the Farming Simulator franchise and now the latest edition, Farming Simulator 17, is upon us, bringing the most intricate agricultural management simulator to fans everywhere.
Farming Simulator 17 brings a massive list of equipment for players to use, including over 250 farming vehicles from over 75 manufacturers, but if for some reason that’s just not enough, no worries. As usual, mods have you covered. Between new objects and construction to spice up your facilities, new vehicles not included in the game, and a few game changers here and there, there’s plenty to see in the modding community for Farming Simulator 17. We’ve brought some of our favorites together in one place for your convenience, so take your pick of the litter and bring it back to your fields!

Better steering with keyboard
As fantastic as those immersive steering wheel, switch console, and driving pedal set-ups for most Farming Simulator games are, it’s a given that not all of us can afford them, but driving on the keyboard isn’t the best either.
