What are mods?
Mods are extensions for Farming Simulator. They are usually created by fans of the game. Mods are adding newcontent to the game such as machines or maps and they are sometimes even extending the gameplay possibilities.
How can I add mods to the game?
- Directly in the game: Go to the main menu of the game and click on "Mods". You can browse the categories to find your preferred content and then install the mod by double-clicking on it. After it has been successfully downloaded, you will be prompted to restart the game.
- Via the website: Go to our Mods section and browse the categories. If you would like to install a mod, click on "Download" and the mod will be downloaded to your computer. If the mod comes in the .exe file format, simply double-click on it and it will be automatically installed. If it comes in the .zip file format, install it by moving the compressed .zip file to your mods folder. More information in the "Where is my Modfolder" section.
Where is my modfolder?
On Windows PC
Open the Windows Explorer und navigate to: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator20XX\mods
On Mac OS
Open the Finder and navigate to: ~/Library/Containers/com.astragon.farmingsim201X/Data/Library/Application Support/FarmingSimulator201X/mods
If you can't find it (because it's hidden by the system), please us the "Go to" command in the finder and paste the above path into the text field.
What to do when mods are faulty?
It is possible that mods are not completely error free and they may have a negative impact on the gameplay experience. If you suspect, that a recently installed mod is responsible for the issue you are facing, remove it from the mods folder and try it again. If you are unsure about which mod may be triggering the issue or you don't know if the problem is caused by mods at all, please contact our customer support (contact details below).
Which mods are available on consoles?
Regrettably, it's not possible to offer beta mods on consoles even if they are available in our Modhub.
Beta mods are, for example:
• Not licensed
• Not optimized
• Could trigger errors with different mods
Moreover, we are not allowed to offer scripted mods on consoles, which could change the gaming experience - even when they are available in the "tested" section at our Modhub.
The mods, which are available on PS4 and Xbox One are accessable through the main menu of the game in the mods category. Once you have downloaded the desired mods, you need to activate them while you start or load a saved game.
