Crazof, have you tried starting a game in New Farmer, saving and quitting as soon as it loads, then going to your savegame folder, opening the careerSavegame.xml and manually changing the difficulty from 1 to 2 (Farm Manager) or 3 (Start From Scratch) saving it and then loading up the game, maybe advance time by a day or or so and see if that re-adjusts the crop prices to the difficulty you'd prefer?

Must admit I've not looked at EL for New Farmer difficulty - is the silo system not a silo and extension? Or is it a completely different asset which we don't have access to?

This is how I set my Estancia Lapacho save up and it's worked out nicely, though don't forget to change the loanAnnualInterestRate in farms.xml ("200.000000" for Farm Manager).

I'm interested to know where people decided to set themselves up field wise on this map?

I've just been contracting for a couple of days to get used to the map, but am starting to get to the point of making a decision about where to buy a field. The centre of the map clearly provides the best value, as the plots of land are pretty much all field so you are getting less 'wasted' space, but there isn't really room to be setting yourself up with animal space, sheds etc.

I went for the middle of the map, got fields 1 and 2 straight away, then added 14, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in that order. Joined fields 1 & 2 together, joined 4, 5 & 6 into one field as well. When I then got fields 7 & 8 I joined them into one field. During this time I also adjusted some of the other fields to give me headlands room to turn equipment without driving over other fields.I then bought the area of land just in front of Field 3 and the Main Road and in that area I put my larger chicken coop and large sheep pen. I have now just bought the strip of land that runs between the top of field's 7, 6 and 5 and the Railline and I plan to cut down all the trees on there and use that area for Cows and Pigs.

The only mistake in Estancia map, is the fact that a tree harvester cannot cut down the palm trees, and the map is full of them !!!!!

I reported it as a bug already. it could cut them in FS17, there are a few more things so that is not the only mistake.

there are trees around the "main" original farm that can not be cut at all, they were the same way in 17

I had high hopes for rebuilding my farm on this map, but I'm waiting till the patch, and maybe some mods to fill in some stuff.

Soon enough, there will be a mod from Blacksheep moddings ; Stump Grinder Rabaud XYLOR . The had it in FS17 and they will release it for FS19 too.

as about the palm trees, I am thinking to convert the Pottinger MEX5 Forage harvester to be a woodchiper.

I look forward to the base mounted wood chipper they had. you could feed whole trees into that thing with just a tractor and front loader, no need to trim branches

Speaking of trees, another annoying thing is how Giants have used Palm Trees to simulate an extra bush type in areas by basically lowering them in the map so only the top tip portion is sticking out the ground. Your vehicles and implements still get stuck on them and if not careful can actually flip over your equipment. To remove them is a pain as you basically have to run round whilst crouched with the chainsaw, looking directly down at the floor and hope to find the trigger point to saw off the tip of the tree poking out the ground.

Estancia is full with palm trees and mango tress and there is no machine to cut them down :)

I have been cutting down the Palm Trees using the Tree Cutter Attachment for the Front Loader, the little yellow one with the little claw thing that comes in handy for pushing the chopped tree over or out of the cutter if it gets stuck in there. I then have the stump grinder on the back of the tractor to remove the stump. Cleared all the Palm trees off the land between your Farm and the Main Road and also between Field 29 and the Main Road. Took a while and would have been easier if you could use one of the big forestry machines, but I guess we have to make do with one of the small attachments on a tractor for now to fell trees.
