Farming Simulator 19 mod map presentation: The Lakeland Vale map, created by Stevie (aka Steve Kay.) The map location is fictional, based on an American landscape.
It’s the perfect map for everyone who wants to do relaxed farming, with square, AI worker friendly fields and easy to do missions. It’s also a good map if you’re going to go crazy with the landscaping tool. It offers a lot of freedom when it comes to removing, altering, and adding stuff.
Lakeland Vale Features
Yes, the map has AI traffic. But it’s just one car, driving around the village. This small traffic spline makes it much easier to do landscaping on the rest of the map.
There’s compost installed on the map. But you need to download a placeable composting plant to make use of it (see below.) There are already several map locations that are ready to receive placeable objects.
Lakeland Vale has a pretty large forest area. You’ll find the sawmill inside the forest. There should be enough space to add a placeable woodchipper there.
Ready for Seasons
Yes, the Lakeland Vale map works with the Seasons mod. Stevie has prepared a snow mask for it. There are even custom textures for much of the vegetation and the surrounding mountains that change with the seasons.
You should download additional mods to make your stay in Lakeland Vale more fun. Here they are:
- Stevie’s production mods – Stevie has created an extensive collection of GlobalCompany production mods, including a compost plant.
- GlobalCompany – You’ll need the GlobalCompany script if you want to use the production mods.
- Stevie’s Kotte Multi TSA tanker – This modded tanker lets you transport all kind of liquids.
- Animal Pen Extension – The animal pens work with the Animal Pen Extension mod.
FS19 Lakeland Vale Mod Specs
I’ve always been a massive fan of Stevie’s work. I like Lakeland Vale a lot. It has a fantastic atmosphere and a great layout.
Stevie has done a terrific job with the landscape. The areas between the fields look natural and the forest ground is just beautiful. Stevie is also one of the very few map makers that manage to make the maps look less “clean,” thanks to his custom-made dirt and oil stains. The result is a more realistic look.

The new version has new and good-looking distance textures for crops.
Homogenized milk is a new commodity. To make it, use the H-Milk machine included in Stevie’s pack of placeable Globalcompany mods.
An important message to existing users: If you want to use the new version of the map (V5), this is what you must do.
- With an older version of the map active, put all the fields you own in a plowed or cultivated state, then save the game.
- Now, download the new version and let it overwrite the old version of the map.
Just in case, make a backup of the old map file and the game save folder first.
