If the first Claas mods to be released on Farming Simulator 19 were just not functional, the 2 released this week are fully functional. The Axion Series 900 and Xerion from 4000 to 5000 come with all options.
The Axion 900. Here is a mod that had left us a bitter taste last December since the mod had leaked before being properly integrated. As a result, either the game was crashing or the mod was not appearing in the catalog. In short, you’ll understand, it’s old history, and Claas today returns with his big brothers the Xerion 4000, 4500 and 5000.
It’s about conversion mods already present in Farming Simulator 17 Understand that if the features are there, the models are vintage. Correct in exterior views, cabin views are less chipped, with (too) low-poly steering wheels and blotchy textures. Let’s hope that the official Claas mods will correct at least this aspect. For the options, Axion and Xerion come with the complete set of wheel configurations. Double, balancing weights, wide tires, Michelin range … the Xerion also has mass to place on the chassis.
Ingame, the models take full advantage of the Giants Engine 8 and its enticing renders. Special features of Xerion, they have the ability to switch to 2 or 4 directional wheels, but also to use crab walking left or right. Too bad that soil compaction is not taken into account by FS. The cabin can also be reversed, pivoting on itself at 180 °.
