With the FS22 Place Anywhere mod, you can place buildings and other objects literally anywhere in construction mode in Farming Simulator 22 (FS22.) Here’s how you use it and where the proper place to download it is.
Collisions in Video Games
All video games have collisions. FS22 too. No, I’m not thinking of AI traffic crashing into you when you’re pulling a record-high bale stack, only to tip over because of the impact.
I’m talking about invisible boundaries, or walls if you like, that stop game objects from moving through each other.
Those red boxes in the image above are the collisions for the FS22 John Deere 6R tractors. They are usually invisible, but I’ve made them visible so it’s easier to understand what I’m talking about.
If it wasn’t for collisions, you could drive the JD straight through the walls of every building in FS22 or through other machinery. Not very realistic, right?
Note that also all objects and buildings have collisions in the game. It’s those collisions in particular that make life hard for Farm Sim construction work.
Why a Mod Like FS22 Place Anywhere?
The problem with collisions in FS22 occurs when you enter construction mode.
Have you tried placing an object really close to another object in construction mode? If you have, I bet that you’ve noticed the warning message saying Overlaps with another object.
Well, the Place Anywhere mod for FS22 removes that obstacle for you, literally.
How the mod works
The FS22 version of Place Anywhere doesn’t remove the actual collisions in the game. They are still there, and you still can’t drive tractors through walls.
Instead, the mod helps override the strict placing limits put in place by the Construction mode. No, it doesn’t break your game. It won’t affect performance negatively.
It just eases the rules.
How to Use the Mod
The beauty of the Place Anywhere mod is how simple it is while simultaneously having a huge, positive effect on gameplay.
Here’s how you use it:
- Download the mod to your mods folder.
- Activate the mod when you start your game save.
That’s all you have to do. Now, you can start building out your farm and factories without worrying about strict placement rules.
- You’ll notice how you can place objects much closer to each other.
- It’s even possible to place one object inside another.
Even if the mod is called Place Anywhere, you can’t place stuff 100 % anywhere you want all the time. There are some limitations:
- You can’t place an object inside a building with four closed walls, for example. It doesn’t matter if the building has doors that open.
- Yes, you can have objects overlap to a certain degree. If you push it too far, collisions will have an impact, and the placement will create artifacts to the ground.
FS22 Place Anywhere is still a lot more powerful than the FS19 version:
- In FS19, you can’t place any object inside buildings that have floors.
- In FS22, you can if there’s an opening in the wall.
