V 0.5 mod for Farming Simulator 17

If you are farming simulator purist then this map is not for you, because this map has many tasks to do instead of cultivating, harvesting, feeding animals etc.


This map is a modification of Goldcrest Valley.

What is new in this map:

This map has a open sky mine where you can extract stone, limestone, soil, coal and water.

You use the stone crusher for the production of gravel, sand and stonepowder. You use a limestone crusher for the production of cement. Use tout-venant facilities for production of tout-venant and use asphalt facilities for the production of asphalt.

With the soil you can extract gold at goldmaster, the gold appears in a box and you can sell at the bank next to the store machine.

With the gravel, sand, cement, and riversand2 (you need extract riversand) you can produce concrete at the concrete factory, and sell the concrete in the village construction area, also you can sell sand, gravel, tailings and boardwoods.

In the sawmill exist a new facilitie for production boardwood.

All animal facilities (cows, sheeps, chickens and pigs) are in main farm.

Exist a harbor here you can sell all products of the map. You can use the veihicles or you can use the new train system.


In v0.4 exist grapes as new fruittype and growing like other fruits (need seeding and harvest) for harvest don´t use the default machines, because create errors and crash the game. You need wait until someone release a mod for harvest the grapes.  


Please read this tutorial with calm and attention to avoid unnecessary questions. This map is easy to play if you understand how works all production facilities. You can therefore watch the videos tutorials.


You can find the tutorial in pdf here:!7lwwRI7J!mjMDhkRRbIMouq2d_eRntIYm8mP3ijHTyMi896I-SRw  


This time I don´t release a modpack for this version of the map like I do for fs15 version. Some modders don´t like other modders change their mods, so you have wait until the modders release mods for mining (excavators, dumpers, trucks etc). The vehicles in game are compatible with the map, you can play and use all features with the default vehicles except TAR, for this you need use Kotte Universal Pack LS17.


From v0.5 the map don´t need anymore the mod UPK (universal process Kit) in your mod folder.


Other mods I recommend:

 Kotte Universal Pack LS17

Drive Control


Version 0.5

  • From v0.5 don´t use anymore the UPK (universal process kit) for triggers. 
  • Add light towers in the mine for work in the night. 
  • Fix trigger to load cement on trailers (cement crusher). 
  • Add washer spot in the mine to wash your mining machines. 
  • New road to the harbor with new signs. 
  • New PDA map with some local descryption. 
  •  Add animated horses on farm. This don´t have any function is only decorative (I like horses). 


In this months emerge some maps with my ideas (this is not a problem for me, this is a sign people like my ideas), all modders have my authorization to use my ideas into your maps. If you like my ideas and want create a map for mining, please contact me, together we can create a better map. With my ideas and yours skills, certainly we can create something.

    For all people have problem loading the map:

    First remove all mods from your mods folder, mods like other maps, seasons mods and others are no compatible with mining map, so when you want play mining map you need remove or unselect this mods.

    Second, you need download the v0.5 (don´t need UPK mod) and put in your mod folder alone, and start a new save game. Then you can add other mods like mining machines.

    Third, for the people can not use some mod machines on the map is because not all mods are compatible with mining map. For example the excavators from TFSG none are compatible with mining map, because that modders don´t know how make mods without issues and 100% functional, so don´t use this mods with mining map because they won´t work. Exist better mods for mining 100% functional, is question of searching.

    Hi, thanks all for comments. I know is better play with the appropriate mods for this type of map but the mods are not mine so I can´t release the mods without permission.

    I will try speak with some modders and if they give me permission to release some mods.

    But remember this is a question of time to appears new mods for this type of map. The map is out and need much more work to stay better and soon or later the mods appears.

    For users have problems to load tar, water and diesel please use this mod:

    Hi, the gold production is quite slow isn't it? I mean, I got like 60k water and 200k soil in the system, tailings is empty and gold is coming in very slow. Is that working as intended? Meaning, that it is processing the soil so slow?

  8. StuartA1984 05. November

    im glad its not just me who noticed that 1.5.1 doesnt work.

  9. GregTame 04. November

    What tab is the download link under? As the file tab shows nothing for me.

  19. Servant 27. September

    The reason the mod wont load is because when you unzip the RAR file after downloading the file name has white space in it. You just remove the space bettween the letters e.g. (V 0.5)to(V0.5) <<<no spaces

    I could load cement e.g. from the compost / limestone crusher machine not only the Train in V0.4 now in version 0.5 I can load the train cars ...I get the message auto or manual in the train but not up above with tractor and trailer. Note ( I am using no (UPK) and no mods) only in game equipment and it wont function. If I walk down to the train spout with my character I get the load manual or auto message that I should receive up top but still won't load trailer up top.
