Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

Very well written and it pretty well captures it. It is a no win situation :( Next release will not only make pig food cheaper, but maybe more important is that is also lowers how much pigs eat. So profitability will increase also if you make your own pig food. Naturally the challenge when making o...

Re: Seasons Mod Thread #2

I'm confused by what he means by longer winter I think he's referring to the second case where there is no crop planting season in spring transition 1 so its like the winter has extended an extra transition. Seems weird that the same base geo could have different calendars. I would double check no ...

Re: Would you use this if it was added to the game?

Yep, I would certainly use something like that. We have self propelled sprayers and mowers so why not? I'd quite like the convenience of not worrying about having a free tractor in order to get the baling done.

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

I'm pretty sure that if you make it profitable to keep pigs by just buying pig feed it will be very much less profitable (or still not profitable at all) to keep them by producing your own feed through growing crops. All you will need equipment-wise is a means to get the feed and water into the trou...

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

I am just uploading the start of a play through to test exactly this out. It looks tight but possible. Would be very interested in your findings. I think people that just come out and say it is profitable are offsetting or ignoring a lot of costs because they have the tractors and equipment for wor...

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

Pig farmers don’t make money? I don’t think they raise them just so you can have your breakfast bacon and eggs. Of course they make money. All farming is a struggle IRL but it’s still viable financially. That’s beside the point anyway, the thread was started just to get an idea of the viability of r...

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

I’m perfectly calm thanks, just trying to have an objective thread here in which people can back up their claims when they offer an opposing perspective. Reallogger says changes have been made for the next release and he’s not even sure that will come to consoles. I’m talking about the here and now....

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

Simmer down tiger. It’s not like there is no chance you just did bad math. You are now comparing selling root crops and such straight up instead of strictly pig upkeep. You will earn more money than you spend keeping pigs. Hence a profit. Hence pigs are in fact profitable. But you will make MORE of...

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

Saying pigs are not profitable is misleading. You will make a profit but the profit you make may not be as big as you expect or feel you deserve for the “effort” of upkeep. You're in an especially pedantic mood today aren't you? How about: for the numbers I have crunched I would lose money keeping ...

Re: Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

If you Google pig profitability fs17 you'll find a well laid out reddit post about the details. Thanks, I'd previously visited the reddit post for the base game but hadn't searched again for seasons and the posts are a bit TLDR so I thought I'd be able to get the short answer here. Seems its very m...

There is a grass field at the bottom the hill from the sheep farm (right hand side of road) that has no entrance.. has a fence all round.. am I going mad ??.
South of field 5? Entrance is at the NW corner just over the bridge (coming down from the sheep farm) I think.

Pigs Profitable in Seasons mode?

Are pigs profitable when using seasons? In my vanilla GCV farm I calculated that keeping around 210 pigs would allow me to sell an ArtMechanic mod trailer of pigs every night for around a $40k income (on hard). Given that only requires a day of feed and that I could turn over the fields every day th...
