How to install Farming simulator 2013/2015 mods

How to install Farming simulator 2013/2015 mods?

First of all, download a mod file from our site www.farming-mods.net.

Files usually come in one of three file types.

  1. EXE These are the easiest to install. Once the file has downloaded just double click on it and when it runs it will install itself, done, run the game and test it.
  2. RAR These are compressed files, these can contain any files or folders which have been compressed to make downloading quicker. When the download finishes you need to extract all the files within the rar file. You will usually end up with either exe files or zip files. RAR files are also used for the map downloads and will usually require extracting to your data folder.
  3. ZIP These too are compressed files. Check to see what files are contained within them. If there are zip or exe files then these will need to be extracted and exe files run. If a zip file contains the mod itself then the zip file needs to be copied into the mods folder of the game.


Before you start to looking for mods folder, start and exit your game. Your mods folder will be created.

FS 2015:

  • XP: User\My Games\FarmingSimulator2015\Mods
  • Vista/7/8: Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2015\mods
  • For Mac OS X Users: /Library/Application Support/FarmingSimulator2015/mods(The mod folder of the App Store version (Farming Simulator 2015) is located here:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.focus-home.farmingsim2015/Data/Library/Application Support/FarmingSimulator2015/mods)

FS 2013:

  • XP: User\My Games\FarmingSimulator2013\Mods
  • Vista/7/8: Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2013\Mods
  • For Mac OS X Users: /Library/Application Support/FarmingSimulator2015/mods(The mod folder of the App Store version (Farming Simulator 2015) is located here:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.focus-home.farmingsim2015/Data/Library/Application Support/FarmingSimulator2015/mods)

Don’t forget that if you have the German version the folder names will be slightly different in German language.

Windows XP and later will open zip files but you will need Winrar or a similar program to open rar files. These programs will also work with zip files.

Only ZIP files will work in the mods folder. RAR files will not work.

    1. Farming mods

      It should be stored in your downloads folder.

  3. michael kent koehn

    i already have the new maps dragged to my my mods folder just like my other mods….then when i run the farming game and start a new career i cant do different maps.

  4. Zach Johnson

    Sometimes the map/mod cannot be used unless it is extracted(unzipped).
    Rar. Files have to be changed to zip. Or exe. Before you can use them.

    1. Farming mods


      If mod is .zip format you don’t need extract it. Just put them to your /mods folder and they will work. If mod is in .rar you need unrar it before placing to your /mods folder.
