I want to draw attention to the Friesenjung Autoload Transport Pack mod for Farming Simulator 19. It includes MAN trucks and Fliegl trailers, all with Autoload. The download instructions are at the end of this showcase.
This large pack contains no less than 12 different trucks and trailers. Here’s what you get when you put the mod in your mods folder:
You get 3 trucks with different capacity
You can paint the trucks in almost any color. There are several engine options available, but they don’t seem to influence the horsepower stats.
Each truck’s load capacity varies. The only exception is the cotton modules. All three trucks can carry one module each.
Then there are 3 turntable trailers
If you buy the largest one, you can haul 22 round bales, 20 square bales, or 1 cotton module.
Another group of 3 trailers (with drawbars)
20 pallets or 1 cotton module will fit on the largest one. But there is a problem with the support leg on the mid-sized version.
Finally, 3 semi-trailers
The largest trailer has room for 38 round bales or 30 square bales, for example.
The kingpin of each semi-trailer can be moved forward or backward using the mouse. But I suspect this function is the cause of some the errors this mod leaves in the log (see below.)
Oh, I almost forgot… All trucks and trailers includes ramps that turns them into great transport machinery for other vehicles and tools.
If you want the trucks and trailer to have Autoload, you must buy it in the shop during purchase. There are two Autoload versions: Regular Autoload and Autoload light (I’ll do my best to explain the Autoload Light function later.)
Here are the most used commands:
- Z = Cycles between the accepted products.
- U = Turns Autoload on or off.
- B = Toggles the different main unloading positions (guided by a marker.)
- Y = Unloads stuff.
The position of the unloading marker can be tweaked further. Take a look at the F1 menu for guidance.
All trailers and trucks accept standard round bales, square bales, egg boxes, pallets, and standard cotton modules (not the ones that were introduced with the Anderson DLC though.)
About the Autoload Light
The Autoload Light choice is what I will call semi-autoload. It’s the perfect option when you want to use, let’s say, a front loader or a telehandler to collect the bales. But you don’t want to stack them on the truck or the trailers manually.
Just get the bale near the truck or trailer. When you’re close enough, the Autoload function (needs to be activated by pressing “U”) stack it for you, automatically. A brilliant idea, btw…
FS19 Friesenjung Transport Pack
This pack of trailers and trucks was first made for FS17 and now converted to FS19. Here are some of the specs for the Farming Simulator 19 version:
- Brand: MAN and Fliegl.
- Credits: Giants Software, Friesenjung.
- Category: Trucks | Trailers.
- Base price: Trucks from 135,000 while the trailers starts at 12,000.
- Engine configurations: Several.
- Power range: 420 hp.
- Top speed: 80 kph | 49 mph.
- Capacity: Anything from 1 cotton module to 810 egg boxes.
- Selectable colors: Yes.
- Selectable wheels: Yes.
- Wheel brands: Lizard, Trelleborg, and Nokian.
- Errors: Yes, see below.
Warning: The mod did, unfortunately, leave errors and warnings in the log. It didn’t affect gameplay directly. But pairing this mod with other faulty ones could eventually lead to disaster…
Still, I wanted to tell you about it. Because it has a lot of potential. Hopefully the modder is motivated enough to fix the errors.
There are also some minor visible hiccups. Due to various pallet heights, some pallets will float in the air. And the support leg on one of the trailers won’t raise when attached to a vehicle, making it almost impossible to haul….
(Updated September 2, 2019) With version 188.8.131.52 (see below) many of the log errors have disappeared, like the support arm error mentioned above. There are still some bugs left, but the mod is on its way to becoming error-free.
Version 184.108.40.206 – Round Cotton Bales
(Updated September 2, 2019) The great pack of Autoload trucks and trailers now also accepts round cotton bales from the John Deere cotton DLC. And that is not the only news.
- Some of the truck descriptions have been updated and corrected.
- Easy Autoload script has been updated to the latest version.
- Horsepower values for the trucks inside the shop have been fixed.
There are still some smaller bugs that are being worked on. Like Autoloaded goods being automatically unloaded on the beds when the game is saved. And the connection hoses, that don’t work yet.
Version 220.127.116.11 – Improved Visibility
(Updated September 3, 2019) A small update this time. But also a helpful one. First, some minor problems with the wheel configuration options for a couple of the trailers have been fixed.
And the unloading marker has gotten an update too. It has new colors, making it easier to see. Just download and overwrite the old version to let the changes take effect.
The official download location for the transport pack is over at LS-Modcompany. The blue button below gets you there. When you arrive, look for a green button in the upper right corner that says ‘HERUNTERLADEN‘.
We always use the modder’s original download link when possible. Please let us know if there’s a problem with the link.
