Preliminary information

Farming Simulator is a story management game series in which life on a farm is simulated. The player is in charge of raising cattle and managing crops, just like on a real ranch. If you are on this guide, however, I don’t think it is necessary to explain how to play!

At the time of writing this guide, the game has reached the 2020 chapter , available only on Nintendo Switch , Android devices and iPhone / iPad , and on which it is not possible to apply mods . Most of the mods are developed for the previous chapters of the saga, which are available on PC and home consoles: it is in fact on the latter that I will focus.

By the end of 2021, the release of Farming Simulator 2022 is also expected , which “returning” to home consoles and PCs will almost certainly have the usual treatment in terms of available mods. I will therefore be ready to update this tutorial as soon as there are more details about it. But now just chat and let’s see how to download the mods on the various versions of Farming Simulator.

As you will notice, I will only focus on official and easy-to-use content. There are also unofficial mods, but the latter, like all unofficial content, could present operating problems or even risks in terms of security for the PC on which you are going to install them, so I decided not to talk about it.

How to download Farming Simulator mod 2020

If you are wondering how to download mods for Farming Simulator 2020 , I have to give you bad news. In fact, that of 2020 was the first chapter of the series distributed exclusively for mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) and for Nintendo Switch . In this “special” chapter, the basis of the game always remains the same, albeit in a reduced version , given the absence of some important components of the game for PC and fixed consoles.

Furthermore, the closure of the Nintendo Switch system has made it impossible for users to develop mods for this version. To date, therefore, the only versions of Farming Simulator on which mods can be installed are those that I will deal with in the next lines.

How to download Farming Simulator mod 2019

Farming Simulator 2019 launched on November 19, 2018, making it the most successful chapter of the series. The mods for this title are truly endless and are updated daily on the game’s official website. You can download and apply them conveniently from the game’s internal menu , without having to download anything from external sites. To better understand how to proceed, continue reading: below you will find explained how to download Farming Simulator 2019 mod on both PC and console .

For example, you can choose to take a look at the Objects or Animals category to see all the mods related to that content. Click or select with the X or A key of the controller the category you prefer to access another menu, within which all the mods available for that category are present.
