Same here. Seen it multiple times now. After accepting a contract (sowing) it disappears / gets removed from the list.
Single player, Steam version on the BETA 1.1.2 branch.

Supposedly this seems intentional, contracts disappear on accept should they no longer be valid, as in, should whatever the contract requires already be done. Tbh I would much rather have timer bars on each contract that show me how long it'll be valid for, and invalid conctracts cleared automatically from the list, since right now the way it's handled is counter-intuitive and screams "bug" even if its intentional.

If this is intentional I would expect a message that the contract is not longer valid.

I don't think this is intentional.
On my game, when (non transport) contracts disappear, they are not regenerated. Instead, the field gets full of weeds and no new contracts for that field appear. I have had no non-transport contracts on my Ravenport game for several in-game days. This is also mentioned here :viewtopic.php?f=965&t=132719
To me, disappearing contracts and stuck AI field state seem to be related.

This is linked to the weeds in AI fields bug, those fields with weeds allow you to accept a contract (seeding for example) but disappear when you do accept it.

hi i've got exactly the same problem (on your MP server) like you and guys here https://www.fs-uk.com/forum/index.php?topic=204153.new
mission system is broken, there is growing only weed and 'broken fields' are in cultivated state.

- PC/Mac/PS4/XB1: PC (Steam ver.)
- Vehicle/Tool/Model/Object: Contracts
- Issue:Disappearing contracts and don't come agian.
- Single- or Multiplayer: Both
- Steps to reproduce: Probably when i accepted and cancelled some of the missions and they never came back. rumours says that when you cancel weed missions, but i can't confirm this for 100%
- Does it happen on a standard map without mods yes/no:Yes, Ravenport

yeah I am starting to see the same thing. I wonder if the system isn't generating weeding contracts enough or something so they get stuck after a while?

After some investigation on my side (PC Version), it seems that the contracts are not being removed from the list when the associated field state changes over the course of time.
Most common (in my experience)
- Sowing contracts disappear upon acceptance if the field has shifted to a "planted" state; and
- Harvesting contracts (including mowing/tedding/baling) disappear if the field has shifted to "harvested" state

In all cases, the contracts (and future contracts for the affected fields) do not refresh, which means if you don't clear the invalid contracts, no new contracts will be generated on those fields (because one is already available).

If I were to hazard a guess, I think the contract validation loop needs to be amended/refined, such that if the critical contract initiation conditions (i.e. field state) are no longer satisfied, it should be automatically removed from the list of available contracts.

Entertaining Anecdote - Be careful when trying to clean up the contract list by accepting all of those you believe are no longer valid (in order to clear the list)... Ended up accepting a sowing mission on Felsbrunn Field 10... for Potatoes! First and only contract I have cancelled up until now LOL!

Interesting, but what about Baling contracts never showing up?

I accepted a potato contract on 18 acres - afraid that four hours later my map is still marred by weeds and no contracts.
