Top Farming Simulator 19 Mods Right Now
Farming Simulator 19 is finally here! And the list of FS 19 mods will grow bigger and better every day. Lots of mods are excellent.
There are also many mods that won’t be worth your time. They might be riddled with errors. The models may not be optimized for the game. Or it could be badly written script mods that’ll crash your game and computer.
Below is my list of go-to mods for Farming Simulator 19. These are high quality, error free mods, that enhance gameplay. All of them makes the game even more enjoyable.
To console players: I’m sorry to say that some of these mods don’t exist on Playstation 4 or Xbox One.
How to install FS19 mods on PCs and Consoles?
Before you can enjoy the many Farming Simulator 19 mods available, you have to install them. Since FS17, Giants has made the whole process conveniently simple.
- Inside the game, make sure you are in the Main Menu.
- Open Modhub.
- Browse the mods.
Once you find one you want to install, click on it and follow the instructions from there. This process applies to both consoles and computers.
Are you on PC? There’s a second option for installing mods you’ve downloaded from the Internet. Most mods come as Zip files. These files need to go into the game’s mod folder. This is how you do it:
- Locate the Zip files you’ve downloaded. (Most of the time you’ll find it in your computer’s ‘Downloads’ folder.)
- Copy or cut the file.
- Now you need to locate the mods folder. Usually, it’s located here: C:\Users\[Your Username]\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2019\mods
- Open the folder and paste the Zip file.
Sometimes, you’ll come across mods where the Zip file is packed inside another Zip file. Or a Rar file. If this is the case, you’ll need a file extractor, like 7-Zip, to unpack the top-level archive. This gives you access to the compressed file you need to move.
Finally: Remember to check the boxes next to the mods you want to bring to the game before you start a new game or load a gamesave.
Where to Find Mods
There are lots of web sites that let’s you download mods. Should visit all of them? No. Because many of them could potentially harm your computer. Sure, you can download mods. Together with spyware, adware, malware, and other malicious stuff.
There’s really no more than a handful of sites that are safe to use. Here are my go-to places for mods:
The Farming Simulator modding community is huge. A lot is going on. People from all around the world are working on bringing models and scripts into the game.
Here are some of the things I’m hearing:
A Wave of FS17 Mod Converts
In the coming days and weeks, we’ll see a solid flow of FS17 models being converted into Farming Simulator 19 mods. Many players will want to see their favorite mods in the new game.
I’m afraid the transmission into FS19 won’t always be pretty. Because FS19 introduces a new method for model texturing, I fear we’ll see some darn ugly converts… Not to mention unofficial script conversions that crash both the game and the computer…
Better Mods and Maps
It’ll most likely be some months before we’ll get a steady stream of great mods and maps, made exclusively for Farming Simulator 19. Modders need to educate themselves on the changes going from 17 to 19.
The fact is that modding for the new game is more accessible than with previous versions. But there’s still a transition period. Both for understanding new mechanics. And actually making the mod. There’s good reason to believe we’ll see a significant improvement in FS19 mod quality already in Q1, 2019.
Courseplay a Farming Simulator 19 Mod?
Courseplay is one the most popular mods ever to be released for the Farming Simulator series. Since 2012 it has helped digital farmers automate almost everything on their farms. And it keeps getting better. The current FS17 version is a considerable improvement, compared to what the script was like a year ago.
So, will it be available for FS19?
Well, I have good news to share. Giants have confirmed it talks to the Courseplay developers. Not about implantation to the base of the new game. But a conversion. It is a 99.99 % chance that there will be a version for the new game.
The first Beta-version of Courseplay for Farming Simulator 17 was released to the public one month after the game launch. A Modhub version emerged several months later. I hope to see a stable FS19 version at the beginning of 2019. Or even sooner. More people are working on it this time.
(Update November 11, 2018) Pops64, one of the main CP developers, posted this message on Github recently:
We will try to have a beta version as soon as we can but we all must have patience as the CP dev team does have real life stuff that takes precedented and we do not know yet what changes need to be made and time required to make those changes. We are also planing on refactoring major parts of the CP script which will take time. Thanks.
What about the GPS Mod?
The GPS Mod is another, very popular mod in previous FS games. A lot of people are asking if it will be available in the new game since Giants haven’t made a functioning GPS part of the base game.
This is a tougher one.
The creator, who goes by the name of Upsidedown, is currently occupied with the making of Cattle and Crops. It’s unlikely we’ll ever see a converted GPS Mod for FS19 because of this.
Well, someone might try to convert the existing one. But to make it legal, Upsidedown must offer permission. Not sure if he’s willing to help a competitor becoming even more popular…
My best bet is that there will only be a working GPS mod for 19 if other modders decide to build one from scratch.
An Updated Seasons Mod?
Seasons is not part of the new game, even though Jos “Rahkiin” Kuijpers, one the mod creators, was hired by Giants some time ago.
There’re currently no words from the rest of the Realismus team (reallogger, theSeb, and Wopster) regarding the future of Seasons. However, due to the popularity of the script, there may be hope that a new version will appear in Farming Simulator 19. But that’s just me speculating.
FS19 W.I.P. Mods
Here are some updates on exciting “Work In Progress” mods for FS19!
The mod is apparently going to be a rake from the German manufacturer Fella. Keep an eye on the VertexDezign web site for more information.
Knowing much of the previous work by fqC Art, this is sure to be a high-quality mod.
Marston ACE 10 grain trailer
Mattxjs is working on a classic British trailer pack for the new game. In the picture above, you’ll see his high poly versions of the Marston ACE 10 grain trailer. It looks very promising indeed.
Mattxjs isn’t just some random guy who just got started with modding. Tons of people have enjoyed his pack of Ford TW tractors in FS17. Even more impressive is his Modern Classic DLC (Massey Ferguson 390 T, Maxxum 5150, JCB Fastrac 150 and more).
When modders this talented decides to create mods for the upcoming game you can rest assured that we’re in for a good time.
Brantner Power Push Plus+ trailer/tipper
Brantner, an Austrian manufacturer of farming trailers, just announced they will showcase Farming Simulator 19 on their boot during the Austro Agrar Tulln tradeshow in November.
Booth visitors will get their hands on the new game and the FS19 version of the TA 23071 Power Push Plus+ trailer. This is a Push-Off trailer that holds loads between 34,000 to 40,000 liters.
Giants confirmed on Twitter, that the trailer will be added to the game as a free mod later.
Ringwoods Makes a Comeback
Many knows Stevie for his great vehicle mods. His maps are even more popular. Besides being one of FS history’s best map makers, he’s also one of the most productive: Steive has made more than 10 maps for FS15 and FS17. Tens of thousands digital farmers have his maps and mods installed on their computers.
Right now, Stevie is working on bringing one of his best and most popular maps ever back on the FS scene. Ringwoods will be making a Farming Simulator 19 comeback. Not only is he converting this FS15 favorite – He’s extending it. Ringwoods FS19 will be a 4×4 map.
You’ve never played one of his maps? Wow! You’re in for a treat. It’ll be worth buying FS19 just to play this Farming Simulator classic.
Claas Torion 1914 wheel loader
Smety is a veteran Farming Simulator modder. He’s also one of the best model creators of the whole FS modding community. He’s been making mods since the first versions of the game. And his damn good. Many of his models are among the best and most popular ever made.
Luckily for us, Smety has decided to continue making mods for Farming Simulator 19. He’s already working on one impressive piece of machinery: The Claas Torion 1914 wheel loader, a collaboration between Claas and Liebherr.
And there’s more good news.
Are you a fan of Claas tractors? Hoping we’ll get some of them in FS19? Well, Smety has you covered.
