Farming Simulator 22: 4 Ways to Cheat Money Fast



Converting Farming Simulator 22 stubble lint into a seedbed

The Farming Simulator 22 makes a lot of fun and there is plenty to do. There is one thing in particular that you can never have enough in the game – no, not cows, but money! Although you start your life in the country with a relatively large amount of start-up capital, the money runs out quickly in view of the numerous buildings, machines, and other expenses.

If at some point you do decide to break the rules of the game and cheat yourselves, there are four easy ways you can do it. In this guide, we will introduce you to all four variants in detail.

Option 1: Editing your savegame

For the first variant, you need a save game, which should be the least hurdle. You can usually find it under the following path on your system:

C: \ Users \ * your username * \ Documents \ My Games \ FarmingSimulator2022

There you will find a correspondingly numbered folder for each save, i.e. savegame1, savegame2, etc. – the order depends on the in-game structure in the game’s loading menu. So if you are unsure which save you want to edit, just take another look at the game.

In the folder, you open the file farms.xml with Windows Notepad or another text editor. There you will find the entry money = … in the third line, as you can see in the following picture:

You can easily change this value to the amount you want. Then save, restart the game – done!

Option 2: console command

The second option is a little more complicated but allows you to change your account balance while the game is running. So the additional fiddling work is worth it.

First, you navigate on your system to the well-known path:

C: \ Users \ * your username * \ Documents \ My Games \ FarmingSimulator2022

There you look for and open the file game.xml. In it you look for the entry

<developement> <controls> false </controls> and changes the false to true .

From here the procedure varies:

For owners of the Steam version:

Then save and open Steam. Right-click on the entry in your library to open the window with the other options. There you will find the Start options section at the bottom of the right pane under General. In this field, you just enter -cheats.

For owners of the retail version:

Navigate to your installation directory of the FS22 and right-click on the FarmingSimulator22.exe. There you go with your mouse pointer on send to and in the submenu that opens on desktop (create shortcut) .

The newly created shortcut is now on your desktop. Here, too, right-click again and go to Properties. In the window that opens, switch to the Shortcut tab. In the destination field, scroll all the way to the right until your cursor has reached the very end. There you add a -cheats. It should look like this example:

“C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Farming Simulator 2022 \ FarmingSimulator2022.exe” – cheats

From here it goes on again for both variants:

Start the LS22 and load your score. In the game, you can now open the console with the ~ key. For example, if you want to have 100,000 euros more in the virtual account, just enter:

gsMoneyAdd 100000

Confirm this command again with the ~ key. A third press of the button closes the console again. If you want to remove money, just add a minus in front of the amount.

Option 3: The LS22 Power Tools

The third way to cheat money shouldn’t be new to serial vets. Thanks to the Power Tools, some quality-of-life improvements have been added to the game, including the ability to add any money you want.

The script can be downloaded from the Cornhub fansite. Aside from the money cheat, you can also activate and deactivate super strength, a flight mode, or the user interface. In addition, all purchase prices are reduced to zero euros, and the daily maintenance costs for your equipment and machines are also suspended.

Option 4: The Money Tool

The name of the fourth and last option already reveals that this tool is all about money. You can download the tool, which has been available since the Farming Simulator 2017, from the mod website

After the download, simply unzip the ZIP file into the mod directory of your LS22 installation, the full path is:

C: \ Users \ * your username * \ Documents \ My Games \ FarmingSimulator2022 \ mods

Then you can mutate into Dagobert Duck with a few simple hotkeys in the game: CTRL + ALT + 9 or CTRL + ALT + 0 (in vehicles) will add 1,000,000 euros to you.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
