Du kannst dir beim GDN unter ,, Videoanleitung, Modding Video Tutorials
Videos anschauen die dir erklären wie du Moden kannst.

Die Video-Tutorials zeigen allerdings nur, wie man eine Karte erstellt


However, the video tutorials only show how to create a map

Don't expect an all-in-one guide for FS19 modding.

Beneath the FS19 Tutorials 4.0 are also other guides. And also still valid are the basics from FS17 apart from minor changes.
Also in GDN Downloads are some useful guides.

Last not least a source for infos is the general Giants forum and the hundreds of "how-to" all around the web.

Honestly, back up one of the in-game folders in the vehicles category, then go in and play with the XML. See what happens. The i3d file can be opened in notepad++ and played with too. That's how I got started, and now I've made a (mostly) functional mod that adds a bunch of the in-game caseIH vehicles but as electric vehicles.

NO! This the way to hacking instead modding.
The FS offers very easy and compatible ways for real mods. It is not necessary to touch the original installation. This disables multiplay and changes are anyway lost on new install or updates.
