You didn't say why you wanted to change the console screen resolution,
so I am guessing you don't like it's new look in 11.0.
Just to point out something you may have missed about 11.0. The default
console driver has changed from "sc" to "vt". The console screen now
looks different that what you are used to seeing with past versions of
Freebsd. You can change the default console driver back to "sc" by
adding this line to /boot/loader.conf file and rebooting.
If you want to continue using the default "vt" console driver, you can
change the default mode from "graphic" mode to "text" mode by adding
this line to the /boot/loader.conf file and rebooting.
About your question of "how to set console text mode 1920x1080" I do not
know the correct syntax to use, but I know you should put it in
/boot/loader.conf file and reboot. It maybe as simple as adding "mode 0"
to the /boot/loader.conf file and rebooting.
Note: the "vt" console driver has some problems. Search the bug
reporting system for list of "vt" bugs to see if any of those bugs may
impact you before you decide to continue to use it.
