Farming Simulator 19 mods presentation: The (very helpful) Follow Me mod by Decker_MMIV.
If there ever will be a price for the most useful Farming Simulator addon, the Follow Me mod is sure to be one of the front runners. Here’s the elevator pitch: It allows you to control two or more vehicles simultaneously. In other words, it’s like playing Follow the Leader, but for vehicles.
Quick Follow Me Guide
There has to be a lead vehicle for the mod to work. This can be the vehicle you’re driving. Then, just drive the vehicle(s), that shall follow, close enough to the rear of the leader to pick up the trail. Now, press
Right Ctrl + F on your keyboard to activate the following mechanism.
If you can’t activate Follow Me, try driving the follow-vehicle even closer. You can also try driving the leading vehicle forward a few meters.
A vehicle driven by an AI worker can also be the leader. Just remember that it’s best to set up all the followers before putting the artificial driver to work.
When you want to stop following the leader, just press
Right Ctrl + F once more to disengage.
Set the Distance
It’s wise to set a proper distance for the follower before you start driving. Or before you activate the worker or Courseplay. If you’re in the vehicle that shall follow, this is done with
Right Ctrl + W (closer) and
Right Ctrl + S (further behind.)
It’s also possible to adjust the distance from the lead vehicle. Turn around to look at the follower. Then press
Right Shift + W or
Right Shift + S to set the distance.
Note that it’s doable to have the following vehicle driving ahead of the leader.
To the Sides
You can offset the followers to the left or the right, as well. This is particularly handy when you want a follower to chase a combine or a forage harvester. It can also be used for doing fieldwork faster, for example.
When inside the machine that shall follow,
Right Ctrl + A offsets it to the left, while
Right Ctrl + D does the trick for right side following.
When you press
Right Ctrl + X now, the following vehicle will get back behind the leader. Pressing
Right Ctrl + X once more, makes the follower switch to the opposite side.
To command the followers from the leading machine, just use the Right Shift button instead of Right Ctrl.
The above guide should get you started with the Follow Me addon for Farming Simulator 19. There are a couple of other commands that can be useful, especially if you’re driving the leading tractor or truck:
- First, there’s
Right Shift + H– This makes the follower hold or resume following.
- Then, there’s
Right Shift + F– Using this command disengage the follower completely.
The rest is up to your imagination. There are tons of things you can do with this mod, like…
Doing Big Harvests.
Make Silaging More Efficient.
Or Create a Massive Convoy.
FS 19 Follow Me
Decker_MMIV’s Follow Me addon is with me all the time. I can’t play a new Farming Simulator game properly until it has been converted.
Oh, here’s a couple of tips:
- Using the addon makes a dent in your wallet. The driver’s need to get paid…
- The addon does not control implements. You need to activate and lower them manually before putting the pulling vehicle in a following state.
