Next mod



Here’s an opportunity to download the HolzerEuropean mod map for Farming Simulator 19. This is a close to a real-life replica of thesmall Village Holz in the spectacular Tegernseer valley, Germany.

The modderhas used imagery and data from Google Earth to make the map look as much as thereal thing as possible. And the effort has paid off. It's a beautiful map witha fantastic atmosphere.

Holzer Mod Map Data

The Holzer PDA Map.

The Holzermap was first released for FS17. Now it has made the transition to FarmingSimulator 19. Here are some of the most criticalinformation:

Some of thethings that strike us about the map are all the forests. Yes, there are plentyof fields here. But also, vast areas where fans of logging will have a greattime.

To make the most out of your time in the forests we suggest that you install the More Trees mod from LS Modcompany.

Other than forestry, the map is perfect for animal husbandry. Most of the fields are grass fields when you start a new game. And the modder has edited some of the base game animal rules, making keeping cows, sheep, and pigs more fun.

An ideal map for dairy farming.

Custom Lighting

The in-gamelighting has been improved especially for the Holzer Map. The modder has takenadvice from the legendary mapper BulletBill to make the days and nights lookmore natural.

The fieldshave also gotten the multi-terrain angle update.

Holzer Map Manual

Kudos tothe modder for making a manual for his map. Because each courtyard is designeddifferently, the triggers positions vary. The manual is there to help you findyour way around. It helps you find everything you need.

Although the manual is written in German, it'llstill make it easier to locate all the triggers and selling points, thanks tothe pictures.

Version 1.1.1 - Seasons 19+ Much More

(Updated August 4, 2019) The great Holzer map has reached Seasons 19 ready status. And that's not the only change that has happened since the last time we visited the map. There's much more in the changelog. But let's concentrate on Seasons first.

New Farm Building

There's anew farm building at one of the farms. It's made by the modder calledfarmerfivetom.

Thisbuilding is really nice. It has lots of animations and cool details. It's alsoprepared for Seasons (notice what happens to the roof when it snows...)

Script Removal

The setAnimalCapacity script has been nulled in the Holzer map moddesc. It's not compatible with Seasons 19.

If you wantto play the map without Seasons, and use the script, this is whatyou need to do:

  1. Unzip the map.
  2. Open the unzipped folder and look for the file moddesc.xml.
  3. Reactivate <sourceFile filename="scripts/setAnimalCapacity.lua" /> by removing the <!-- and the -->.
  4. Save the file, re-zip the map folder using the exact same map name, and you're good to go.

FPS Booster

Perhaps thebest update is the inclusion of the ClipDistanceFPS script. This was a lifesaverback in FS17. It's the first time I have seen it in FS19.

In short,the script reduces the in-game visibility of everything inside halls and sheds.The result is often a noticeable jump in FPS. I can only hope thatGiants make this a standard feature in their games, or that the script will bereleased as a standalone mod.

Version 1.2 - MoreRealistic Seasons

(UpdatedSeptember 15, 2019)With the new update, the Holzer map has become one of the most realisticmaps for Seasons 19. Now, also the deco foliage (bushes and wildflowers),change colors and appearance during the year.

And severalof the buildings get snow on their roofs during winter.

Thereare also other changes and addons:

Several Options for Cows

Are youplaying with Seasons 19? The Holzer map is now designed to follow a yearly cycle that's commonin many parts of Europe. During winter, the animals are kept inside the barn,which has all standard functions except for water.

The winter barn uses static cows because it's so small.

In the restof the year, they can be transported (with livestock trailers) to the nearbygrass pastures or to the mountain meadow away from the farm. Most fieldshave all functions while the mountain version doesn't have straw, manure,slurry, or milk. There are also cattle buying triggers at almost all of the pastures.

There's an error within the SeasonsGrazing.lua file in the current version of Seasons. There will be an update soon. You can either wait for the update or try the fixed version already available on the Realismus Modding Gitlab. If you choose the latter, be 100% sure that you know what you're doing.

In otherwords: If you're NOTa techie (I’m not…), it's best to wait for the official update.

Version – New Roads, New Seasons Textures

(Updated January 31, 2020) A newversion of the fantastic Holzer map is available for download. It looks betterthan ever, especially if you’re using it with the Seasons 19 mod.

Here’sthe new stuff:

Seasons TexturesAdjustment

The newHolzer map corrects the foliage textures switch. For example, Autumn texturesare used from early Autumn to late Autumn. In the older versions, theswitch happened mid-Autumn.

When you nowstart a new gamesave, in early spring, it will look like early spring and notlate winter…

Unpack First

You can't just download the Holzer map to your FS19 mods folder. You need to unpack it first, using something like 7-Zip. Inside the folder you'll find this:

To use the alternative map version, you need toreplace the original mapDE.i3d and mapDE.i3d.shapes files with the ones youfind in the folder. Be sure to make a backup of the map first...
