If you drop the logs into the square, they've gone. To get the extra money by using the train, you need to unload them directly into it. You can:-
  • Unload using a front loader
  • If there's logs sticking out of the trailer, simply reverse up to the train
  • If you have logs that won't come out using the option above, have a go at my method here (Unexpected Item in the Logging Area!) which is lots of fun! :D

It'll come as no suprise that they're pretty much up there :zunge: At the moment they are:

Bjornholm (normal mode): 233,5 hrs
Westbridge Hills (hard mode): 143,2 hrs
Sosnovka (hard mode): 273,75 hrs

Mind you, on none of those 3 maps have I yet managed to buy all fields. Sosnovka, which I'm playing now, will be the first map I'll manage that, but it's gonna take some more time though. After that, I'll go back to the other two maps and finish them as well.
Wow I thought I had a lot of time with 90 hours on sosnovka.

I always drop them in the square and then also send the train off. I don't have to unload them to the train for it to work. I get paid twice (dropping in the square and when the train unloads).

Interesting! I thought that was the whole point of putting them into the train! :hmm:

You get more for the second payment for unloading to the train then you do for the box.

No, you must replant them.

Has anyone noticed the massive frame rate hit caused by the Case Puma 160 or is this a Xbox360 only issue?

It's virtually unusable in my game.

Phantoms, I also play on XB360 but have no issues with the Puma. In fact, I currently use two while farming Westbridge Hills.

I 'm currently farming Westbridge Hills and that's where I noticed the problem. Tonight I'll try it on a different save game and see if the problem is present but I seem to remember having the problem on Bjornholm too and so not using it there.

Edit: I played tonight and could not reproduce the problem on any save or map. Last night was consistantly happening. I could sell the Puma back and buy a different tractor and problem would dissappear. Buy the Puma and it would reappear. I tried it several times always with same result. I'm of the opinion now that perhaps it was just a problem with that gaming session.
