Here'sthe Eiersholt 4x mod map for Farming Simulator 19, made by Datalund. The link to the download locationis 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.
The amountof effort gone into making the map as realistic as possible is insane. Justcheck out how trees, bushes, and other plants blend in naturally, creatingbeautiful, life-like surroundings for villages, factories, and fields.
The mainfarmyard has a lot of buildings, like sheds, storage buildings, and animalpens. But it's also divided into several farmlands. Buildings onfarmlands you don't already own, won’t be accessible until you've bought theland their sitting on.
For the Hard-WorkingFarmer
Eiersholtis a 4x map. It's excellentfor large scale multiplayer farming (note that I haven't tested the map inmultiplayer.) If you plan to play it by yourself, you can get a lot of AImanpower by using Courseplay.
Scatteredaround the map, you'll find several smaller forests where you can honeyour logging skills.
There are alsoa 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 thetrees.
Designated Areas forPlaceables
Severalareas have been made ready for placeable objects. All of them have a great-lookingmix of several ground textures, not just one. This is a nice touch more mapperscould learn from. The land looks more natural this way.
The map hasalso been prepared for Seasons 19. I especially like how it uses customtextures 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 haof arable land.)
- Number of buyable farmlands: 99.
- Selling points:16.
- Additional crops: Alfalfa, rye, millet, clover, and triticale.
I could notfind any errors or warnings in the log after spending several hours onEiersholt. The only tiny detail that caught my eye is that some of the farmyardbuildings aren't 100 % level. But hey, that's just my mild OCD talking…
