The Great Smoky Mountain American mod map for Farming Simulator 19 is ready for download. (The download guide is below.)
This map is an FS15 original, now available for Farming Simulator 19. We know a lot of players enjoyed the map back in the FS15 hay days. There’s no reason to enjoy it less now.
The map is a conversion/rebuild with lots of new stuff added. Some of the most striking add-ons are two huge areas where you can build your own farms, making the US Farm Buildings pack from Modding Welt a perfect match.
A Unique American Map
The Great Smoky Mountain map is unique. Clever use of vegetation makes it one of the most realistic, American FS19 maps. If odd shaped, hilly fields are your thing, you’ll have a blast with this map.
Once you own a decent portion of all the available fields, Courseplay will come in real handy…
According to the mapper, the map is about 95% finished. There will be an update once Seasons 19 is released.
Playing Farming Simulator 19 on this map poses a challenge. It requires some thinking and planning to get the most out of each field.
If you enjoy logging alongside farming, you’ll appreciate the vast amount of forests surrounding the fields. There’s a big sawmill at the southern part of the map where you can reap the rewards.

The mod created warnings in the log. It did not affect gameplay.
Warning: We got a ‘Compound’ warning, probably caused by the Giants 1.4 patch update. However, it didn’t produce noticeable problems for our game.
(Updated August 13, 2019) The warnings are gone with version 2.0 – See below.
After spending some time on the map, you might feel that something is missing. There are no shadows! (Thanks to ‘Totenfarmer’ for making us aware of it.)
The Shadows will return in a future update of the map. If you can’t wait, you can download a replacement ‘mapDE.i3d’ file from the modder. You need to unzip the map file and replace the old I3D file with the new one. Check this post on the American Eagles forum for download instructions.
(Updated August 13, 2019) This has also been fixed – See below.
Version 2.0 – Now with Shadows, Seasons
(Updated August 13, 2019) One of the best US FS19 maps has been updated to function with Seasons 19, which make the map even more stunning. The update includes the addition of a proper snow mask, while the weather has been adjusted.
Traffic collisions have been altered. And now the map objects cast shadows… More changes:
- Multi-terrain angle terrain have been added together with more foliage details.
- Starting equipment locations have been adjusted, and the arrangements of multiple items are fixed.
