Stevie (aka Steve Kay) is one of the most productive map makers in the history of Farming Simulator games. I don’t have an exact number but based on the Modhoster stats for his FS 2015 maps, I believe it’s safe to say that many hundred thousand players have enjoyed his work
Farm Sim veterans, who have played on maps like Ringwoods, Paradise Hills, or Cherry Hills, will testify that not only is Stevie productive, he is a darn good mapper too.
Stevies’ most recent release was Fenton Forest 4x, a heavily edited (and extended) version of the base game Felsbrunn map. It’s still one of my favorite FS 19 maps.
Lakeland View is Next
So far, Stevie has released two maps for Farming Simulator 19: The Fenton Forest standard-sized map and the Fenton Forest 4x version. Now, he’s putting the finishing touches to a new map, the Lakeland View.
The map takes inspiration from a North American environment. It will be a standard-sized map, customized for both standard gameplay and Seasons 19. Based on a PDA preview that Stevie just has released, it seems the map will have more than 20 fields, both small and big. All fields are pretty square.
Here’s a screenshot of the current layout.
Unknown Release Date
The map-making process is in the final stage. Stevie told on his Facebook page that only the creation of the Seasons mask and map optimization remains. Then, the map will enter testing. No word of a release date yet, but based on Stevies’ earlier releases, it will be two to three weeks until all of us can enjoy a new hit from the talented mapper.
