This guide is for those who wants More or Less Snow, Lower or Higher Temperatures, or just wants to set the temperature to 5000 Celsius.
You Have to Edit Base Game XML Files!!!
Make Sure to make Backups before continuing!!!
Recommended Tools & Disclaimer
I highly recommend a Code Editor, such as Visual Studio: Code, as you will need to edit an XML file, which has over 680 lines of code.
In this guide, you will need to edit Base Game files. If you do not feel comfortable doing so, I recommend NOT continuing. This is for those who truly want colder temperatures so snow won’t melt all the time.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES TO YOUR GAME.
If you have a game breaking issue, just delete the environment.xml file, either replace it with the back up file, or verify the game with Steam.
Locating the environment.xml file
Locating the file
Base Game File Location
Firstly, this guide is for the Steam version. The Disc or Downloaded version should be the same, besides the location of the main directory. Now, with that being said, let’s get to work!
Alrighty, first thing you want to do is head to your Main Game Directory, should be something like:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Farming Simulator 22”, unless if you installed it to another location.
Mod Maps Location
Within the map’s .ZIP archive (from your Mods folder), look for “maps” > “mapUS” > environment.xml
Example: “FS22_ElkMtnWyoming.zip/maps/mapUS” – [ElkMtnWyoming.zip]
Now, head into the “data” folder.
Now, head into the “maps” folder.
Now, depending on the map, you will have to go into either “mapFR” or “mapUS”,
NOTE: mapFR is for European Maps, while mapUS is for US base Maps.
Now from there, locate and open in a Code Editor, the “environment.xml” file.
Editing the environment.xml file
Backing up the file
This is Extremely important!!!
Always back up any base game file you are going to be editing data in!!!
Super simple, Copy the file, and Paste it on your desktop or something like that.
Now with the file open, you should see the following first:
Now head to line 605, aka the Winter Season section
Now, starting with line 607, you should see “minTemperature” and “maxTemperature” setting
Now adjust the values minTemperature=”-6″ and maxtemperature=”10″ to something more cold. I did minTemperature=”-23″ and maxtemperature=”-1″
Now do this for all of the weather options under the Winter season section.
Lines that contain the values you have to change:
I hope this guide helps everyone at making the temperatures more realistic for their playthroughs.
