Eiersholt 4x Mod Map (Seasons 19 Ready) 1.0.0.8

Here’s the Eiersholt 4x mod map for Farming Simulator 19, made by Datalund. The link to the download location is at the end of this showcase.

I think that the Loess Hill Country was one of the most underrated maps of Farming Simulator 17. Now, it has gotten a second chance, thanks to the hard work of Datalund. Eiersholt, which is the name of the FS19 version, looks even more stunning than the original.

Impressive Mapping

The amount of effort gone into making the map as realistic as possible is insane. Just check out how trees, bushes, and other plants blend in naturally, creating beautiful, life-like surroundings for villages, factories, and fields.

The main farmyard has a lot of buildings, like sheds, storage buildings, and animal pens. But it’s also divided into several farmlands. Buildings on farmlands you don’t already own, won’t be accessible until you’ve bought the land their sitting on.

All this can be yours…

For the Hard-Working Farmer

Eiersholt is a 4x map. It’s excellent for large scale multiplayer farming (note that I haven’t tested the map in multiplayer.) If you plan to play it by yourself, you can get a lot of AI manpower by using Courseplay.

Scattered around the map, you’ll find several smaller forests where you can hone your logging skills.

There are also a couple of areas to the North-West that’s perfect for creating new fields. But be warned – It’ll require a whole lot of work, especially removing all the trees.

Designated Areas for Placeables

Several areas have been made ready for placeable objects. All of them have a great-looking mix of several ground textures, not just one. This is a nice touch more mappers could learn from. The land looks more natural this way.

The map has also been prepared for Seasons 19. I especially like how it uses custom textures for a lot of the vegetation in the Spring and in the Fall.

FS19 Eiersholt 4x Map

I’m impressed with the work of Datalund. He keeps on updating the map, fixing and adding stuff. Many of you already know him from his YouTube channel, where he creates great tutorials for Courseplay, among other videos. Here’s more info about his fantastic map:

  • Map Name: Eiersholt.
  • Credits: Datalund (main mapper.)
  • Map size: Large – 4x.
  • Number of fields: 61 fields (there’s 1,082 ha of arable land.)
  • Number of buyable farmlands: 99.
  • Selling points: 16.
  • Additional crops: Alfalfa, rye, millet, clover, and triticale.

I could not find any errors or warnings in the log after spending several hours on Eiersholt. The only tiny detail that caught my eye is that some of the farmyard buildings aren’t 100 % level. But hey, that’s just my mild OCD talking…

Version 1.0.0.8 – Increased Capacities

(Updated September 26, 2019) Datalund keeps improving his glorious Eiersholt map. The 1.0.0.8 update includes a lot of changes and fixes. Here are some examples:

  • Many of the silos have an increased capacity, while most of the animal pens have space for more livestock.
  • Alfalfa dry is now a separate filltype at the TMR mixer at Eiersholt. And its bale trigger is adjusted, you no longer need to use the bale pusher.
  • An issue, where solid manure leaked through the walls of the manure pit, is fixed. Several other minor stuff, like texture issues and floating trees, is fixed as well.

You can read the full changelog inside the 1.0.0.8 folder at the map page (click the blue button under.) And no, you don’t have to start a new gamesave.

  1. Are there any additional mods required in order to run this map or is it “plug and play”?
    Thanks in advance.

    As for the map, can’t wait to play it. Datalund has done a tremendous job, building it! The possibilities truly are endless with this game (except now I need more $$$ for a new PC – grrrrr)….

    As a new FS19 player, a big thank you to Giants and great respect to all the modding community. You guys rock!

    • The map is “plug and play” 🙂 All you need to do, is download it and place it in your modfolder. Hope you have fun playing it, and thank you for the very kind words 🙂

    • Thank you for commenting, Dr. Drulia (I’ve seen several of your streams on Facebook. They are relly good 🙂 ) Are you thinking about the static cows? If so, you could talk directly to the map maker here.

  2. I have tried many mod maps, and admittedly Eiersholt ticks all possible boxes for me. It’s got everything. Small fields. Large fields. Simple fields. Fields with islands in. Short hauling routes. Long hauling routes. Forestry. Dedicated meadows from day 1. Whatever I feel like playing I can find it here.
    Oh, and it does one thing well – while most 4x maps feel empty-ish, with huge open spaces and generous field “borders”, Eiersholt feels very built up in a natural way.
    I can’t praise this map enough.

  3. Fantastic Map. A European map I can really get behind. Extremely well detailed. I’ve been so busy doing contracts that in 40 hrs game play I haven’t gotten any animals yet!

  5. I do not seem to be able to download this map.

    it takes me to a google drive page, shows me the files! however everything is greyed out and informs me I am offline, I don’t seem to be able to select or download the files. is there something I am doing wrong.

    Do you have advise?

    Ps great site really enjoy reading and downloading some suggested mods excellent work 🙂

  6. hey erik so i started playing this map and i bought sheep for the sheep pen as well as fed them and gave them water but every day i advance (in seasons) it says an animal has died. it also says the animal pen cleanliness is at 0 percent but its not dirty at all. would you know if this is a map bug or a seasons bug with the map? my sheep are dropping like flies in a freezer lol. other then that this is a beautiful map great review as well!👌👌

    • Thank you Jaydin 🙂 And sorry that you’re having problems with the sheep. Not good at all to have them dropping like that :O

      I can’t give you a good answer unfortunately. But I can point you to Datalund’s page on FS-Nation.com. He’s very responsive to questions. Just note that you have to register first, then contact him.

      I wish you and your sheep all the best 🙂

  7. Nice review. I have been playing this map since it was released. I found it because i have followed Datalund since his courseplay tutorials.
    The map is great, i have enjoyed the visuals and large fields.
    He has done a great job making this map seem alive!
