The Great Smoky Mountain Map 2.0

The Great Smoky Mountain American mod map for Farming Simulator 19 is ready for download. (The download guide is below.)

Some of the startup equipment…

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.

The fields are quite hilly.

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.

Forestry

The sawmill.

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.

FS19 Great Smoky Mountain

Here is more info on this particular FS19 mod:

  • Map Name: Great Smoky Mountain.
  • Credits: Johndeere4255, Vanilleeis, Giants Software, and Robbie.
  • Map size: Standard (2×2 km.)
  • Number of fields: 50 (small to medium sized.)
  • Number of buyable farmlands: 44 Farmlands.
  • Selling points: 8, including a barn and the sawmill.

Warning

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.

No Shadows

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.

  1. Hi, Love the map very fun to play on. I recently tried doing some logging which I do not normally do, When I went to sell logs I clicked on the sell marker but it did not take the logs could not sell them. Any help will be much appreciated Took me about hour real-time to load a truck full I would really hate to have to unload them and chip them up. Thank you for a great map.

  2. Hi neighbor, I finally found the small opening on field 3. The bob wire is hard to see but it’ok. Field one, I went back and tried again and this time it worked. So now I’m waiting on Seasons to get into summer and start harvesting. I still Love it.

    • Hi Billy, and thanks for the comments. Great that you managed to solve the field 3 “puzzle”, helping others that might have problem finding the opening. Are you using the updated version of the map (from American Eagles Modding)? It’s updated to match the Seasons mod. I will update the blog post once I’m back from Summer break 🙂

  3. I’m like you, I love realism and a good challenge. One small problem I cannot get on the field no. 3. Bob wire fence goes all the way around to the woods.
    I love this map and I’m 71 years old and play American Truck sim, Euro 2 Truck and Farm sim 17. I live in North Carolina just east of the Great Smokey Mountains. But I live closer to the sandhills instead of the mountains but I promise you I’ve been all over them. My grandfather was raised in Northern North Carolina and when we visited him I saw your map.

  4. Version 1.1 (Seasons Ready) is out which fixes all the discussed issues. Also added a lot of seasonal textures for an authentic look.

  5. “If odd shaped, hilly fields are your thing, you’ll have a blast with this map.”

    Why yes, yes they are.
