  3. Maybe You Can Do Pigs With Seasons Mod... Run that herd through a meat plant mod and CACHING!!! Cash. By MarcDupont, Sunday at 5:59 AM | 1 Comments | 130 Views | Editorial Run that herd through a meat plant mod and CACHING!!! Cash. Alright, I messed it up. Now that's out of the way. You may be able to succeed at pigs but it can't be done in a single year. After a discussion with the gentlemen over at Realisimus (Best mod of the contest BTW, Congrats) Seems the economy for pigs fallows a very specific curve of price fluctuation. So buy low and sell high right? When is low and when is high? The thing is, you don't get to know that. The modders do. And there is a really nice graph that exists that gives you those answers for all the crop type. But I can't show you that. I asked. Sorry.So here is the long and the short of it. Every crop in the game has a multiplier month to month. So depending on the number of days per season you are playing everything I say is based on a year of farming that begins in lets say April. To buy pigs at their minimum price you need to buy them in Month 11 (February). At that point the multiplier for pigs is at .50. Which should (and I say should because I haven't got there yet) mean that at a price of 3000$ a pig your pigs at that point should cost you 1500$. Okay, So at that point you should have gone through a full year of grain production so you'll have the feed ready to go.100 pigs bought for that price is a 150,000$. Now you feed them through month 12 and then it's spring. Now your pigs start to reproduce. Keep them at 100% through the spring, Months 1, 2, 3. The price multiplier in those months is 1.25,1.10 and 1.15. Your 100 pigs should now be 162 pigs (note the error from the preceding article where I thought it was 165. My bad). In month 5 the multiplier is 1.45 times the base Sale price of 1200$. I'll do the math for you cause I'm a nice guy. That's 1740$ per pig. That's 281,880$ in value for your herd. Now you had to grow a whole lot of crop to do that but it can be done. The real money is in year 3.With a 1.62 multiplier on your reproduction, you will have 262 pigs at the end of month 5 in year 3. Now you have a herd valued at 455,880$. Run that herd through a meat plant mod and CACHING!!! Cash (please be aware that the meat mod has updated and Farmer Klein informs me that prices are adjusted).So can you make a go of pigs? I really don't know. I think it depends how cheap you can produce the feed. If you waste money on big gear probably not. But, if you are conservative about expenditures and manage to feed them for 130,880$ including harvest and upkeep, yeah it can be done. But it's tough. And that's why I play Hard mode.Ok. Sorry for that whole convoluted mathematical thing but I obsess about these things, and if it leads to some understanding of just how great this mod is, I like to share it.

  5. Maybe You Can Do Pigs With Seasons Mod...

    I think the whole point of seasons mod is the uncertainty of it. All I can come up with is curves and projections. you chose a course of action and go for it. if you are a good farmer you succeed. if not you fail. @Farmer Klein That is a great question. thought of it. and would love to test it sometime. but you just don't know. @chaseydog I hesitate to pull back the curtain too far on this mod. I like the risk factor of it all. I've lost entire fields of crop due to wet autumns and I'm ok with that. @BigJohnnyD The mod slows you down in progression immensely. But what I'm learning now is that it also stretches your game play out. you need 3 years to see ROI on pigs in my estimation (not to be taken as fact) and Tree farming is 5 years to see your crop. I do love that about the mod. But it's been a journey to break away from old farm sim expectation.

  8. Grass Growth And Fertilization In Seasons Mod

    That's what I thought. Thanks @wonko
  9. Hello all. Long time farmer first time poster. I have been playing with seasons for some time now and have had different results of grass growth on some map. I'm about to start an MP series on Gemeinde Rade and was wondering, How many fully fertilized crops of Grass can I expect on a 12 day season? And when Can I expect to harvest them? Thank you
