I used it for a seperate save for my kids (3 & 5). It allows me to buy whatever I want so if my daughter says she wants to drive a red tractor, I just show her all the red one's and she picks one.

Also use it to test certain mods before potentially implementing them into my own save-games.

I'm into logging, I make so much money I don't know what to do with it. No need for a money cheat. I really wish money was harder to come by. I actually remove money using the EasyDevControls mod.

I've been playing since FS2011, and I used to be strict no money cheat. I refused to cheat in money in 2011. For most of FS2013's life, I didn't cheat money either. I've served my time doing it legit. Now, though, I don't care anymore. I even have cheat mode enabled in the console. I can get so burnt out on Farm Sim I would long lost interest before getting enough money to buy the big stuff. Last time I got burnt out, I stopped playing Farm Sim when Shamrock Valley was released for FS17 and didn't play it again until Marwell Manor was released for FS19. I stopped following all news and stopped watching any Farm Sim related videos. I was done, and went on a complete Farm Sim blackout. I play Farm Sim in a more metered tone now. For me, the fun in Farm Sim comes from playing as realistic as possible, rather than getting everything without cheating. I've always played Farm Sim in first person for nearly everything I do. When harvesting, I will run the combine at slow speeds. Same when working fields. I also don't use the helper that much. Never have. I like doing it all myself. When I make a farm on a map, I already have a theme in my head for that farm. I use money cheats to set up that theme initially. If I make any changes I usually use the money I earn, or take out a loan, to make the change.

I think so, I normally edit the amount I start with down too about forty thousand. The fun for me is in the build up, as you say it gets dull when you have millions in the bank. What I can't understand is the cheap fields on some maps, it's not like money is hard to get in this game.
I totally agree, the build up is the fun. I increased the cost per ha from 13000 to 30000, plays on hardmode and not doing any contracts. I have only one tractor yet, and could just recently buy a combine. Now its my 6th season and still I have $280000 left on my $420000 loan. And since my 130hp tractor made me use 3,5h to seed 12ha with sunflower I really cant wait for the John Deere premium 7xxx.

how else are you going to try new stuff right off the bat? Honestly for me I like to create a farm the way i want. I have a save game that is my constant, then i have several others that are built for different set ups and or farm types. Money cheat is needed for this. I just want to farm

Iv never used cheats like that tbh.
However, I do find myself editing sell point files to give crops a much higher price. Sometimes I also give myself the odd field or a few million on the save files.

I do wish i didn't start doing this though :(

I'm nearly 40years old. My playstyle:
- reduces cost for land from default 60000/ha to 21000/ha
- starting out with ~6-7ha for small (3-4m)
Is this the baseprice on most maps?

Yes. It is the default value for maps by Giants. Most modders stick to this value.
Just keep in mind that this value is applied on the whole patch of land you are buying, not only to the field.

I've done both methods and still do. I like to modify maps very much. I use Farm Subsidy if I know I like a map and want a very complex map with tons of things to do. I use the mod to get a large sum of money so I can put what I want where I want. I want many different things to do and all the animals and tasks. After these things are done, I switch to real time and ride dozens of horses, feed them from the farm, do missions and grow greenhouses and olive trees, etc. I act as though I inherited a huge farm and money. It isn't as easy as it sounds. As I said, I do this if I love the map and want to play it for a long time. I always play a map at defaults first, though. :mrgreen:

It may be my age. I'm a 73 yr old female with time on my hands.
