FS19 is in the Epic Games Store. Here’s How you Install Mods

Farming Simulator 19 is now available in the Epic Games Store, and not only that: You can download the game and play it for free. The period, when you can get the game without paying, ends on February 6th, 2020.

It’s the base game version that’s available for free.

You can already buy the FS19 DLCs. The Platinum Expansion, John Deere Cotton DLC, and the Anderson Group equipment pack are accessible in the Epic store, as long as you pay for them.

Mods on Epic Games Launcher?

Yes, it’s possible to use FS19 mods with Farming Simulator 19 bought through the Epic Games Store. Giant’s official Modhub is included with the game, of course.

You can also install mods manually via your computer’s file explorer. When installing Farming Simulator 19 from the Epic Game Launcher, it will create a file directory similar to what Steam installments do.

How to Install Mods

Have you downloaded Farming Simulator 19 from the Epic Games Store? This is how you install a mod manually, outside the official Modhub.

1. Download the mod file to your computer.

Most mods come as zipped files. You don’t have to do anything to them other than to get them to your hard drive.

2. Locate the games’ main folder.

Open a file explorer. Usually, you’ll find the FS19 main folder here: C:\Users\[YOUR NAME]\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2019

3. Look for the “mods” folder.

Inside the “FarmingSimulator2019” folder, there should be another folder called “mods.” Drop the zipped mod file into it.

That’s all you have to do. Now, start your game and remember to check the mod’s box in the mods window when you start a new game. This activates the addon.

Where to Find Mods

The best place to start looking for mods is Giants Software’s Modhub. The addons you’ll find over there, are greenlighted by the developer’s Q&A team. You can also browse my collection of tried and tested Farming Simulator 19 mods (click here.)

After that, visit the Yesmods FS19 resources page. It includes links to other mod sites and Facebook pages where you’ll find many gems.

PC Only

Farming Simulator 19 in the Epic Game Store is only available for Windows computers. If you’re looking to play the game on a Mac, you can buy it from Steam or directly from Giants Software.

Sidenote: Epic Games is currently working on global mod support for the games offered in its store, much like the Steam Workshop. It will be interesting to see if this will include Farming Simulator 19 mods, one way or another.

  1. Hi, please I have a question: we have 2 PC, and want to have this game on both of them (to play multiplay). How can I install it free? Can it be on the same account? Or must be every PC with another account (as one PC is older than the new one, that is why we have 2 PC right now). On the new PC it is installed succesfuly, but what with the older PC?
    Many thanks

    • Hi Vera, thanks for commenting 🙂 I’m sorry, but your question is outside my knowledge. Here’s what you can do:

      1. Join the official Farming Simulator Discord (here’s the invite – You have to have Discord installed on your computer.)
      2. Ask your question there. The Discord is monitored by Giants’ staff.

      When you do that, you’re likely to receive a reply before the free period ends later today.

      Hope that helps 🙂

  2. Hi, im looking to get fs19 on my asus laptop, but im scared it is too small. Im not sure of the model but it was new on amazon for £100 or something near. Will it run it? Thank you all.

    • Hi May, thanks for commeting 🙂 You can use the tool over at Systemrequirementslab.com (click here) to check.

      Just remember this: The tool uses the minimum computer requirements. Ideally, your computer should have hardware above the minimums…

    • Hi there, Josef – Thanks for commenting 🙂 Hmm… that’s weird. When I installed the game from the Epic launcher, the game created a mods folder. But I can’t remember if it did it during the install or when launching the game for the first time.

      Anyway, this is the path for it: C:\Users\%MyUsername%\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2019\mods

      (I’m using Windows 10 English version.)

    • My path is D:\EpicGames\FarmingSimulator19 and i don´t found a foulder with the mods, even when i install a mod in the ingame tab!

      • Guys, there are two game folders! Game instalation folder, where the game is, and that Documents folder, where need mods be placed 🙂 It will be created automatically, just navigate to it, like was explained above 🙂 If there is nod folder named mods, just create it 🙂 All letters small 🙂

  3. Erik, I have the EpicGames Store version, and correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought that you had the game even after the sale ended. That is what I was told getting the game. Please do let me know if you know any different
