Recommended Farming Simulator 19 Mods
The list of FS 19 mods grows bigger and better every day. Lots of mods are excellent. But, sadly, many mods 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 poorly written script mods that’ll crash your game and computer.
Below is my list of go-to FS19 mods. 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.

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:

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 BETA version is here! This is how you download and install it.

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.
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.
What Kind of FS19 Mods are Available
In Farming Simulator 19, almost everything is moddable. The result is that you’ll find all kinds of FS19 mods. But some types are more represented than others. Here are some of the most frequent mod types:
These are variations of the base game vehicles and tools. Or other mods. This kind of modding range from changing small things, like adding more horsepower to more complex edits.
Under the last category, you’ll find tractors, for example, where the modder has added Interactive Controls to the cabin.
In this category, you’ll find variations of the in-game maps and mod maps. Modders have added or removed stuff, making the maps more distinctive.
The degree of changes made to the maps is varying a lot, from small, subtle changes to complete rebuilds.
Mod and Map Conversions
These FS 19 mods are mods and maps that used to be available in previous installments of the Farming Simulator series.
Some are clean conversions. Others have been worked on extensively to appear fresh.
The Tireless Modders
Some modders work harder than most, putting in weeks, months and even years to create great, and well-functioning Farming Simulator 19 mods. These modding wonder women and wonder men can be grouped into 3 categories:
Have you tried mods like Seasons, Gearbox-Addon, Courseplay, and FollowMe? These are script mods, made by incredibly talented modders, who’s scripts elevate the gameplay to new heights.
This group of modders makes vehicles, implements, and buildings from scratch. Most are burning weeks and months in 3D software like Blender and Maya to bring you great mods.
The Farming Simulator franchise has seen a fair share of great mod maps. Most of these maps are made from the ground up by very skilled map makers, or mappers as some call them.

Want to Be a Modder?
Are you enjoying all those great mods, thinking how great it would be if you could make one yourself? Then you need to know that most modders started out like yourself. They enjoyed the game and the mods. So much that they started investing time and focus on learning how to create their own mods.
Want to make FS 19 mods? Here’s what I suggest:
- Start by learning how to edit a mod. Giants’ base game models are a good start.
- Edit a map. Change it to your liking. Remove buildings and trees. Create new fields.
If you still enjoy modding after doing this for some time, then you’re ready to start diving into 3D modeling with Blender (here’s a short introduction to Blender) or Maya, or perhaps start doing some LUA-programming…
How to install FS 19 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 FS19 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:
You’ll find more mod sites on my Farming Simulator resources page.
