I feel like we are in an Apples and Oranges situation here. Farm sim is at it's core an arcade game. Take the machines, make money, try not to kill the chickens. It's the modders who made it a Simulator. Seasons MR, Gearbox IC all these are Mod driven gameplay. and FarmSim has the longevity now to have a huge and active mod community.
So along come the others. Real Farmer vs Farm sim is like Car mechanic sim vs GTA. you can play both. but it's not the same game. Yes I can drive a train in Train Mechanic sim but it ain't no Train sim world. All I am saying is that these other games that are coming along are not meant to compete with farm sim. They ride the coattails and make a buck and fade away. And those people who are intimidated by mods and scared to open a map will play them. They will play them for a week or two and poof. Gone. If Farm Sim wasn't a modded game I don't think it would have been any different. Who in this group drive a bone stock in game tractor? (rhetorical) But profits will be made.
Cattle and Crops is a special case. A group of very talented people got together and wanted to re invent the genre. GOOD FOR THEM. But now the business of delivery is upon them. And eventually the pressure to deliver something will have them drop an Alpha game as complete. Inevitable. They have my money. Keep it. I really hope you make it. But don't pretend that my experience feeding Bulls isn't just that. Bull. Keep working on it boys. You have Giant's attention. That make all of us winners.
Rant over. You may go back to your chips
