I did consider wether to try and make a Lets Play out of it, but there's no option to farm unicorns... Frankly this shouldn't work. There's no aim, the early game is boring beyond belief and relies on you mashing the speed up button while shouting at the sky "Why do you hate me?" Let's get it out of the way now. Yes, you can have bees. From a Gameplay perspective they are essential. Low outlay, high income (hah!) AND ignoring the wider environmental elements that are mashed into your face by this gam... Sorry. Cereal crops, livestock, spraying, encouragement to develop monoculture. There should be a sub game where you have to stamp on bumble bees and butterflies let alone rely on beehives to top up your meagre earnings. And breathe. The sub games are stupid, from the start they demand kit you cant afford for 50% of the missions, for the rest, if you play your cards right, sell some stuff, keep others and sell the secret stash of crops the tutorials don't tell you about you can plant a tractor with a grass mower in the golf club and camp site and rake in cash. Naturally I didn't and tried buying the cheap mowers. Don't. At the start keep two of the useless tractors, fit mowers to them and park them in the golf course (bottom right) and camp site (top right) of the map where the green trailer icons are. Despite all of that I'm prepared to wrestle the interface, the lack of a decent explanation for anything and a tutorial system that assumes you know what's happening. Because it's the only way outside of the latest racing game I'll get to drive a Lamborghini. They make tractors, who knew? Google is your friend for everything in this game but even the game guides out there are pretty slim. There is something laid back and relaxing about this in a way that I'm sure real farming isn't. The early game forces you to sit and twiddle your thumbs while you figure everything out. The Mill pays more for Barley? That's nice, where's the mill? Even having driven off on a grand tour of the locale you can still get back in plenty of time to wonder what to do next. At some point you will start to harvest a field and forget to turn off X120 time progression and find that half the crop is ruined as a result. It's not a game, it's a great, big, aim free, sandbox where you get to drive tractors and combine harvesters around: ( obligatory link to the wurzels) For that, it's compelling, I want that big field I cant afford, I enjoy running my tractor alongside the combine harvester and I dream of a set up where I can spray cowshit instead of chemicals. The income on anything other than easy will quickly shatter those dreams. Oh and buy bee houses. It makes no sense but it gets you lots of money to fund your loans and worker payments. I get why so many farmers just go "fuck it" and quit.
