I did jump in it! It’s really deep and the only way I could get out was by switching to a vehicle.

I've had them before on maps mainly when I have sold something that's been on that spot, I just put some thick fir trees round them and make a wood, if its near the edge I continue to the edge with about 6 trees wide and use all types including dead trees makes the field look more interesting

What is the shape of the field? If it is worker friendly, then maybe try to fix it. If it is something that is not so square, maybe put some grass and trees around it to make it look a little better

Some people complain that the thickness of the stripes on the reflective markers aren’t wide enough and it’s a game breaking issue and they are never playing again. Not this guy he just just puts trees around game breaking issues and keeps on rollin :lol: It reminds me of that big daddy movie where the kid pees on something and he throws news paper on it :lol: Anyway I just had to comment on your great attitude towards things that would melt most people’s heads.

Like what I do when I have to cross a river because the bridge is filled with AI traffic on Green River. Instead of turning off traffic, I just activated super strength and chucked the tractor across. Don’t worry, I didn’t scratch my beautiful John Deere, I made the Case suffer 😉

So, to wrap up, this is in fact welker 3. So I guess that’s a thing.

I couldn’t build on or near the hole. I could landscape though so I cleaned it up a little and put grass around it so my workers probably won’t drive into it. For now it’s not a reason to abandon the save.

And for anyone wondering what it looks like when you drive a tractor into it, here you go:

Since I'm currently playing Welker, I figure I'll ask if this is only happening on PC, or is this happening on consoles, too?

OP has stated that he is on console, so it definitely happens on consoles. No information on whether it happens on PC too yet.

I considered filling it with lime or something just so I wouldn’t have workers fall in, but I don’t know what that much stuff laying around would do to the save, and after 5 years in seasons and 120 hours it’s probably weird anyway, as attested by the sinkhole.

Thanks for pointing that out to me because that wasn't the question I meant to ask. What I meant to post was is this only happening to PS4 players or is it happening on XB1, too?

Guess I had the old PC v Console discussion stuck in my head.

I live in florida, so sinkholes are pretty much my life.
I had the same thing happen on this map also, same spot to.
