I downloaded a blank map from a mod site. Leeremod to be exact for FS17 I started painting fields and such added a few buildings just to test it out. I saved it and went to the game and started a new game, I saw the new map and chose it and walked on it and what not. Now I changed a few things in the xml like my name and the description. All the changes were in the mapdesc xml, that is. Now the game wont run. The game doesnt see the map anymore. Dont have any idea why it wont be seen. I know this is a broad question and without seeing the files it might be hard to diagnose. So if anyone has any ideas what to check to make the game see a self made mod please let me know. Thank you much..

Is mapdesc.xml a typo ? The file to change this type of information is usually named modDesc.xml.

first step is configuring Farming Simulator to log events in a file, second step is inspecting the log file. Third is taking action.
1) by default a logfile "log.txt" is being created in your Windows "Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2017" folder. If not, you configure that in game.xml.
2) run the game again to regenerate messages in log.txt.
