This update brings – besides many smaller fixes and improvements – a further reworking of the sales prices and revenues.

First, after your feedback, a fourth sales difficulty level was added: realistic. In this level all sales prices and proceeds have, well, completely realistic values.

In addition, the bale prices have been significantly reduced and have been given their own difficulty multipliers (easy: 3 / medium: 2.25 / difficult: 1.5 / real: 1). Field grass and field grass silage bales (hay not included) are now worth almost nothing.

The biogas plant has received an extended revision and now uses much more realistic data as a basis for the revenue calculation. On the one hand, the ensiled fruit types now produce more real (i.e. lower) biogas quantities, on the other hand, the prices for methane gas have been adjusted. The generated energy has been split into electrical and thermal energy, with different prices. One kWhel results in a base price of €0.143, one kWhth results in a base price of €0.03 (the prices are slightly higher during winter and slightly lower during summer). The BGP control display has been adjusted accordingly. In addition, the BGA has received its own price multiplier: (easy: 5 / medium: 3.5 / hard: 2 / realistic: 1). Note: there is now a fermentation period of 20 days, which means the money generated from the silage loaded into the bunker — resp. the generated methane gas — is only paid out after this period.

Together with the BGP and grain price changes, it’s no longer lucrative to buy grain and unload it directly at the BGP.

A few calculation examples:

  • The BGA silos have a capacity of approx. 5,800 m³. This corresponds to approx. 33.7 ha of maize chaff. If you fill the silos completely over a season, you get approx. (minus personnel and machine costs):
    • Real: 55.200 €
    • Hard: 110.400 €
    • Medium: 193.200 €
    • Easy: 276.000 €
  • The same area planted with barley results in (threshed, i.e. with significantly less work and time required) approx.:
    • Real: 18.000 €
    • Hard: 54.100 €
    • Medium: 99.300 €
    • Easy: 144.400 €

As always, all changes can be found in the changelog.

  • Analog devices in missions now show icons for both axis directions if only one axis direction is bound
  • When grass grows back after a complete drying cycle and is then cut again, it is no longer immediately dry
  • In the scenarios the memory consumption has been reduced when fast forwarding, this should also fix crashes and freezes of the game in those situations

  • Crash during fast forwarding with rented equipment or loaned employees fixed
  • Bale sales prices reduced, custom difficulty multipliers added
  • Biogas plant revenues strongly revised:
  • Methane gas: revenue divided into electrical and thermal energy, with an amount of €0,143 resp. €0,03 per kWh

  • Trader icons are now displayed in the finance menu
