Farming Simulator 19 mod presentation: The MaizePlus and MaizePlus CCM add-ons, created by The-Alien-Paul and Modelleicher.
This script mod makes your game even more realistic. You know how everything turns into chaff when you put it into bunker silos, right?
Well, this mod adds several different types of silage to the game, simulating how it is in the real world. It also adds another way to feed the pigs.
Adds New Silage Types.
Chaff is the Farming Simulator label for everything that turns into silage. With the MaizePlus mod, you’ll see a wider variety, both in what goes into the bunkers and what comes out of them.
First, there’s the whole crop silage (Wcs.) Everything you harvest and put into the bunker silos, other than grass and corn, will become whole crop silage.
The second silage type comes from corn. When you chop corn, it will become Fresh Shopped Maize instead of chaff.
Then, there’s silage grass. When you use a forage harvester to collect grass, the output will be silage grass.
Note that all the new silage types still can be fed to cows and used to create TMR.
So, in short, the game now has three new silage types, depending on what you are harvesting. It’s worth mentioning that The-Alien-Paul has created new and great-looking textures for each type.
You can bale each feed, as well, except for the raw CCM. You can use any baler to create silage bales of the fresh materials instead of covering them in the bunker.
CCM (Corn Cub Mix)
Another feature of the MaizePlus and MaizePlus CCM add-ons is that you can turn harvested corn into CCM. CCM is short for Corn Cob Mix. CCM is energy-rich and is used in pig and cattle fattening in the real world. In FS19, you can use it to feed the pigs. This is how you do it:
1. Harvest corn, using a standard harvester.
2. Create CCM raw (corn flour) from the corn, using the GlobalCompany CCM mill.
3. Fill a bunker silo with the freshly made corn flour.
From here, treat the raw CCM as regular silage. After you have compacted and fermented the raw CCM, it will become CCM for your pigs to enjoy. And no, you can’t make bales out of the CCM.
Automatic Content Switch
Another cool feature is how the silo bunker content changes depending on what you fill it with. The requirement is that the silo bunker content is less than 4,000 liters.
Let’s say you have 3,000 liters of raw CCM in the silo. But instead, you want to fill the bunker with grass silage.
No problem! Just unload your first load of grass into the bunker, and the raw CCM will transform into the new filltype.
There are some limits to the mods. We need to talk about heightType limits. heightType limits set the rule for how many types of material you’re allowed to tip on the ground in Farming Simulator 19, with the material being stuff like wheat, corn, and chaff.
- The base game has 31 heightType slots. The standard FS19 crops and materials occupy 23 of those.
- MaizePlus adds 4 new heightTypes, and MaizePlus CCM adds another 2.
The total, 29 (23 from the base game and 6 from the MaizePlus addons,) is within the limits of 31.
But if you’re playing on a map with additional fruits, like triticale and alfalfa, the mod might not work due to too many heightTypes. The exception is maps with modified heightType limits.
Works with Seasons 19, But…
The MaizePlus addons work with Seasons 19. But here’s the thing: Seasons 19 adds even more heightTypes to the mix. Having all addons activated won’t work if the map hasn’t been modded to allow more materials on the ground. Here are the numbers:
- Base game – 23 heightTypes.
- MaizePlus – 4 materials.
- MaizePlus CCM – 2 heightTypes.
- Seasons 19 – 3 heightTypes.
This gives us a total of 32 heightTypes, or one too many for the base game limits. The trick is to use just the MaizePlus addon and leave the CCM extension out.
If you’re more of a visual learner (like me), you should know that The-Alien-Paul has created a short video guide to both addons. Click here to view it.
FS19 MaizePlus and MaizePlus CCM
I think that both MaizePlus add-ons are excellent. They add a great deal of realism to the game. I especially appreciate that the modders also have taken the time to create new textures, as well.

- What it does: More realistic silage production, adds Corn Cub Mix to the game.
- Required Mods: GlobalCompany – CCM Mill and (of course) GlobalCompany.
- Platforms: PC and Mac.
P.S. The-Alien-Paul and Modelleicher advise against using their add-ons together with the More Bunkersilo mod by Derelky, as the combination might cause some problems for you in the game.
