These and similar questions arise relatively frequently and most of the time it is only a small fault called:
- The mod description was only skimmed, but not really read or
- when starting a new savegame, all existing mods are thrown in, without sorting out beforehand
My personal explanation for this fault is quite plain and simple:
Placeable Factory Mods have been activated on a map that is not prepared for it!
Here is the more detailed explanation ...
So far there are 5 placeable factories with productions of erShaba/Vanquish081 (VSRModdingSur): Placeable Factories Pack, Placeable Factories Pellet Pack, Seed Factory, TMR / PigFood-Produktion and Placeable EcoGreen Factories which work via the animal menu. However, these factory mods should only be activated on the maps, which can also be used for these factories, such as the maps:
- Ravensberg Factories (2/2) (-> only for PS4/XB1),
The Old Farm Countryside,
La Coronella 2.0,
Eureka Farms, ✖ -> only compatible with Placeable Factories Modpack
Blue Mountain Valley, ✖ -> only compatible with Placeable Factories Modpack
Wyther Farms, ✖ Since update: 220.127.116.11 - Placeable factories of erShaba and Vanquish081 are NOT longer compatible
Hills Of Italy, ✖ Since update: 18.104.22.168 v. 05/04/2021 - Placeable factories of erShaba and Vanquish081 are NOT longer compatible
Lands Of River Po,
There is the new mod: Bread And Donuts Production by erShaba/raulycristi1 (VSRModdingSur) for the maps:
- La Coronella,
La Coronella 2.0,
La Vieja Campiña Agrícola,
El Valle de Chambergo (Consoles),
There is the mod: Old Production Pack by Farmer Mahnew for the map:
- No Man's Land,
- Spectacle Island
There is the mod: Production Factories For Hills Of Italy (-> NOT Seasons compatible) by MikiMapper for the map:
- Hills of Italy
To play with Seasons and the factories the Seasons GEO:Productions from erShaba is required.
To play with Seasons and the Old Production Pack Seasons GEO: NML Production from Farmer Mahnew is required.
Exception: Ravensberg Factories (2/2) -> for this the Seasons GEO: Ravensberg Console Factories is necessary!
Exception: Switchback Canyon and The Plantation -> Also if you are playing with the Seasons mod, please do not use an additional GEO mod to avoid issues, since Switchback Canyon and The Plantation includes a custom GEO to support these productions. (Note by mapper!)
If you play on a map other than those mentioned above, you must not actively load all these factories into the map at score start. Means, that the checkmark to activate must not be active at map start. If these factories are loaded nevertheless into a map, which does not support these factories/productions, the animal menu is inactive and goes only again if the hook was taken out with all the appropriate factories!
First of all: check the mods and if there is one of the above mentioned factories -> turn off/deactivate/delete (whatever) and then test again if you can get into the animal menu and buy something there.
By the way, it doesn't matter if you play on PC or PS4/XB1. The problem occurs on both sides if the card is not prepared for it.
If you do not have any of the above mods, then it is a different problem or conflict!
