Hey all, thinking about buying FS22. Does it really matter which, if any, store you buy the downloadable version from? The reason I'm asking is that I have a little money in my Steam Wallet already, but if the Steam version of the game is hard to work mods in or something I'd rather foot the bill all myself. Thanks in advance!

I have the steam version. It does not have any problems with mods.
Steam does not run the programs. It is merely a portal to buy them. Just like Epic is now. I prefer Steam because of the sites user interface with the library. It has a lot more options than Epic does. Epic does, however, have weekly free games for download which sometimes are top notch games.

Steam Pros:
1. your game is always downloadable on any computer. Which means when you upgrade to a newer game you just reinstall steam on it and now you have your library available for reinstallation. No hassles.
2. No need to have Hard CDs/DVDs laying around with the potential to be misplaced or lost or even damaged.
3. Steam can save your user files to their cloud for free. This is great in case your local drive took a dive or your local files got corrupted.
4. you can easily see what DLCs you have in the properties of the game.
5. you can also add commands to the "game's" exe startup file for certain options upon starting the game.
6. Some games can utilize the steam workshop to add mods to their game.
7. Steam has achievements for the games to enhance your play.
8. Some games have added content when you pre-order the game.
for instance for FS22 - for pre-ordering we got the Claas Saddleback mod.
9. You can gift a game to family and friends.

Steam Pros:
1. None really.
2. You can not sell your game once you purchase it like you could do with a hard copy. Basically -you are not buyting the game but merely leasing it for one price with no expiration date.

I have had steam for over 15 years and I had bought all my games thru steaam until EPIC games came into play. I only do digital downloads from now on. I don't have boxes of hard copies laying around anymore like I had in the "olden" days.

Ah yes - i forgot about the updates.
Pros:
10. You can choose to have your programs automatically update or choose a time to schedule an update.

You can't go wrong with steam. I upgrade my gaming laptop every 2 years and steam really takes the hassle out of upgrading.

But as for FS22, I'd add it to your steam wishlist. Steam will notify you if it goes on sale then you can buy it and save a little. I've been very disappointed in the bugs in FS22. Mostly on the contracts. Very frustrating to finish a harvest contract, hire the train to deliver to the off map sale point, then it says only 20% delivered. So I've gone back to Ricci Valley in fs19. For me 22 will have to wait until Dave or Oldman22 release a good production map.

Just my 2 cents ;-)

That is why i usually wait awhile before i dip into a new game. New games are often bugged and in the first couple of weeks updates are presented. In fact, i went from FS13 to FS17 and when FS19 was at least 6 months released i bought it. But i do keep up with the latest news around FS22 and yes it looks promising...But for now i stick to FS19.

I haven't had that problem and i had 2 contracts to use the train. Both delivered 100%.
Did you load all of the product in the train?

Now - my issue with contracts who use the train. Don't do them. You have to pay for the train rental which for me was like over $6k. But my contract was for only $4300 with using my equipment so I lost $2000 on the deal.
Giants need to change that. Why do a contract if you are going to lose money.
I haven't been on the Giant's forum in a bunch of years so I don't know if anyone else had this happened to them.

As far as bugs Major ones - I have not seen any yet. Minor ones - I again don't remember if I had one.
I have not done any forestry yet so I don't know if the grapple is better than previous versions. I did hear it was better.

One thing that really surprised me was that you can issue a hire to cut grass meadows and it does a fairly decent job. it avoids the trees and rocks. I am doing Erlangrat and had a mower in the north central area with a very wavy outline. I did a headland first with the M500 and then let it loose. Because of the shape of the field (boundry looks like a grand prix race track) I just had to reset him a couple of areas because there was no grass nearby to lock onto.

C’est pourquoi j’attends généralement un certain temps avant de plonger dans un nouveau jeu. Les nouveaux jeux sont souvent mis sur le buggé et dans les deux premières semaines, des mises à jour sont présentées. En fait, je suis passé de FS13 à FS17 et quand FS19 a été publié au moins 6 mois, je l’ai acheté. Mais je suis au courant des dernières nouvelles autour de FS22 et oui, cela semble prometteur ... Mais pour l’instant, je m’en tiens à FS19.
Je suis un peu saturé de fs19, j’attends aussi de nouvelles cartes fs22, en attendant, je joue un peu sur pv et j’essaie snowrunner

Yep, so i stick to what i said in a previous post; the first couple of weeks there are usually still some (minor) bugs to be worked out.
That is why i am not transferring to fs22 yet. AND... as stated before i have still a lot of work in pv County and not ready to give it up yet.
