How the hell did you get 5,035 in profit when it's only 2,717 difference between leasing and not leasing. So i'll get an extra 2,717 for using my own vehicles minus all the cost you just shared = not worth using my own vehicles.this_is_gav wrote: ↑Wed Aug 15, 2018 3:25 pmWhy you would expect a big pay-cheque for bringing your own equipment and just pressing 'H' I don't know. This isn't Farming Management Simulator. The reward is for putting in effort, and naturally you'll get less of a reward (in a round-about kind or way) if you don't put in as much effort.muzickmage wrote: ↑Wed Aug 15, 2018 1:01 pmI agree with those who suggest the pricing scheme for the missions need to be adjusted. If I am only going to earn maybe 2500 or so for using my own equipment then i'm thinking I will always lease. Depending on how many vehicles I may need for the mission - that could cost me in vehicle usage/depreciation expense/... plus fuel usage. Just how much of that 2500 will be actual profit? Add to that hired workers expense and well... you do that math lol.
So far i'm thinking.... lease the equipment and just do the work myself.
The hired workers reminds me of that 1 person at each company everyone knows doesn't care about his/her job. Just shows up from one paycheque to another mastering the art of looking busy in between lol. I wish I could fire some of the hired workers promising myself to never hire them again..... ever. But unfortunately we can only click the "H" button and the FS employment office sends over whoever the !@#!@# they want. lol.
If you do several missions each in-game day you'll still make a fair bit even using hired-helpers.
Using FS17 as an example, for field 17 on Goldcrest Valley there is a job for cutting corn with the Massey Ferguson 7347 combine and Diamant HS8 header. In FS17 I would get £6,272 plus a time bonus for that mission. If I bring my own (new) MF 7346 and HS8 the hired worker cost just £300 and I only used 21L of fuel getting it there, cutting it and getting it back.
Hired helper costs: £300
Fuel costs: £41
Daily maintenance costs: £896
Reward: £6,272 (I've not included time bonus, as there's no time bonus for missions in FS19)
End result: £5,035 in profit.
And don't forget. The daily maintenance cost increases as you use vehicles. So how much more will the daily cost be after using my vehicles just to earn an extra 2,717?
I'm not expecting to get rich quick. But I do want it worth dragging 2-4 vehicles up the road for the job.
