Kastor has just released the FS19 mod map Somewhere in Thuringia (Irgendwo in Thüringen) part II. And what a map it is! It’s a pure delight to do farming on maps like this one. No wonder Kastor (D-S-Agrarservice) is one of the most respected modders out there.
First of all, this is a 4x map. It’s much larger than the standard Giants’ map size. It’s perfect for multiplayer. Planning on playing it solo? Then you really should consider getting Coruseplay…
Somewhere in Thuringia Facts
- Theterrain, forests, and roads have beencreated based on data from Google Earth.
- Thereare 120(!) buyable parcels, 60 fields, and40 forest areas.
- Thereare also 16 meadows that should be more than enough, even for large dairyfarms.
- 5selling points and 2 buying points for fertilizer, seeds, and lime.
The Somewhere in Thuringia map has 3 smaller villages with working traffic. And if you’re a fan of multi terrain angles, you’ll be happy to learn that Kastor has incorporated this into the map.
Moving on… There are 5 farms on the map. All can be yours. 4 of them have installed BGAs. The farms come fully equipped with buildings, sheds, and silos. But there’s still room for more.
AI workers will work to some extent. But to be on the safe side, you’ll be better off using Courseplay.
Version 18.104.22.168 - So ManyChanges
(UpdatedOctober 28, 2019)According to Kastor himself, a lot of beer, fast food, and sleepless nightshave gone into making the next version of the fantastic behemoth map. Here aresome of the new stuff you can enjoy.
Seasons 19 Ready
Thisversion of the Somewhere in Thuringia map has been prepared for Seasons 19. Itmakes an already fantastic map even more stunning. You will, of course need todownload the Seasons mod to your computer and activate it.
Missions Are Go!
The newversion of the map includes field missions. Kastor has taken on the enormoustask of adding field boundaries to each and every field, making it possible tomake money from other farmers.
Some mapobjects make use of the GlobalCompany (GC) script mod, as well. There arestorage facilities for lime, fertilizer, and seeds that can be used with GC.
This map ishuge! A lot is going on. To get you started best way possible, here are some helpfulinfo:
- Noticethe train? It does not have a function. It's just for show. You can disabletabbing into it in the main menu.
- Thereare field missions, but no transport jobs.
- Palletsof tree seedlings can be sold at the sawmill (at the wood chips trigger).Use a front loader to get the moolah.
If you wantto play the map in single-player, you have to drag and drop the XML files intothe Zip-file and replace the current ones. This will make farm 2 to 5 work.
