    First thank you so much for taking this map forward. Fantastic work. One question. How does seasons and it's mechanisms around reproduction of animal affect the new animal types? Do the prices vary in those industries as well? Thank you.

    I'm actually looking at the opposite. everyone always says that season slows down your play. but 15x puts a lot of pressure on. So what about 15x on a 3 day and see how many years you can run through to grow the farm.

  6. Copyright and Claims Rant

    This is all fine and Dandy. If you have that attitude about your own maps or those base maps that come with the game go for it. But I do think that releasing another Map authors map with your own edit in it to the public is NOT cool. If that map author agrees with you and it's all in the open that's fine. But not everyone sees it this way. I edit every map I play. but it's mine and mine alone then. I don't share it into the world. I play my map. Respect the work and wishes of individuals. they built it, the deserve it.

    This is for the most part a Farm sim channel. I'm only getting started so as it grows I'll figure out how to put my other games on it too. Enjoy. View full channel

    this map is best enjoyed with a tall mug of tea and time on your hands. Logging on this map is a joy as you are creating your land. It's a different side of logging. Here are two mods that will teach you to enjoy it. Hope it helps. a good set of loading forks with straps https://www.dropbox.com/s/u7fvs1usftjsxd7/FS17_stollToolLogForkDuo.zip?dl=0 A small trailer that carries a lot of logs. https://www.dropbox.com/s/gutexjbpqabuzxv/YY_LogTrailer.zip?dl=0

  12. 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.

  13. Pigs Are Broken In Seasons Mod?

    Article or Review Author MarcDupont ... So Seasons breaks pigs. Please prove me wrong and show me how to succeed at pigs in FS17 with seasons.. I've been playing with the seasons mod for 6 months now. I've been through withered crops and wet crops and failed at a few save games along the way because I try to play the game as "simulator" as possible. Don't even try to make me say "realistic". I utterly LOVE this mod. The folks at Realismus are Geniuses for just thinking they could take the game and move it in this direction. I can't play without it. I've play 1200 hours on it now. And except for MP(which is another game altogether) I can't imagine a savegame that won't have it. But enough fanboy babble.I recently had a chance to test Orchard Farm for Dusty Dave Modding. And after the initial hours of running all the animals up to max with no mods I through in Seasons and thought I'd do a series for Youtube about raising pigs. Can it be done in Seasons Mod?So I sold everything on the map and bought 100 pigs. By the time I leased the truck to move them all I was already in trouble. Pig prices on startup were at their peak. 3600 a piece. That didn't bode well. but resale priced in early spring are 1700. So I pushed on. bought in 40,000 in corn, 20 000 wheat, 20 000 sunflower, two pallets of tatters, and 8 straw bales. I bought a UTB and on 2 meter tools and began plowing, fertilizing and seading fields for corn, wheat, Canola, and beats(that's Farmer Kleins fault, the beats. he's trying to kill me) Anyways, 9 day seasons and 5x timescale engaged and I'm off. I kept the pigs at 100% for the duration. And now it's the first day of Summer and I think it's a FAIL.I now have 165 pigs and the reproduction rate has hit 0. Also the price is now 1188 and that means if I sell every pig now I get 196,020 back. Now I put 360,000 into pigs to start. And I'm 60 000 in debt now because of vet bills and seed and fert to get the farm moving. I haven't even got a harvestor yet to get the crop out of the field and it all needs one more fert stage. So what do I do. go further in debt and hope to sell High next spring. I'll have to feed them for 27 days and even then I have to wait for the 1700 price to come back and only get 280,500 back. So the pigs must die. As a possible solution I'm going to max out my credit and get into the sausage and steak business for 250,000. Oh yeah, Doubling down. this could be horrible. but anyways. Hopefully the crop pays off or I'll have to go logging. Yeah. Desperate times.Anyways, I did some research and according to the pig industry web sites I should have gotten 30 weened pigs/mated pig/year. now those numbers make pigs a great business. Farmer Klein informs me that in vanilla mode the farm should produce 22 pigs per day from a seed stock of 115. I could make that work.So Seasons breaks pigs. Please prove me wrong and show me how to succeed at pigs in FS17 with seasons. This is not meant as a criticism of the mod but an exercise in making it work better. {title } Game version Star rating0 Log Errors Mod or Map Features,/strong> Required mods Suggested mods Pros Cons Summery View full article
