Installing mods in Farming Simulator 2017 & 2019 is really easy.

  • Open the GIANTS-Webinterface
  • Stop the server there
  • Navigate to the “MODS”-selection
  • Scroll to the end of the page
  • There you can upload mods up to a size of 1,7 GB

mod-size If you want to upload a mod, which is bigger than 1,7 GB (e.g Maps), you have to upload them via the ftp-connection. We prepared a tutorial for this HERE

Important Mods that strongly change the game files (automations of processes, seasons, weather conditions) can cause very big laggs. Please use them with caution!

Not everyone has bought the STEAM farming simulator, which automatically downloads updates.

If you bought the game elsewhere, you will need to download the updates and DLCs from the official website. HERE you have the complete selection and can simply download and install them.
