4. Farming Simulator 17 (Win 10) Miscellaneous

On this page you will finish off the remaining miscellaneous achievements, leaving just the Gold Nugget achievements remaining.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. WORKING THE FIELDS:

Home

Your first task is to finish any achievements related to working the fields that you have not already unlocked. There are achievements to cultivate, sow, fertilize and harvest a total of 10 hectares (in one save slot but not necessarily in one session). You can track your progress on the Statistics tab.

Fortunately, the work done by hired workers counts towards these achievements. The easiest way to do this is to purchase Field #5. While it is a bit of a drive from the store, this field is 11.95ha so you will obtain the achievement in a single go.

Depending on the state of the field when you purchase it, you may not be able to complete your desired task - eg. you cannot cultivate a field that is already cultivated. You can wait before purchasing the field (the state of the field will change with time) or try a different task - you can filter the map in the game menu to see the state of each field, or just wait a day or so and it should change.

Any progress you have already made during those farmer jobs and the animal breeding achievements will count, and you will almost definitely have already unlocked a few of these achievements. You may need to prepare the field before you can complete the task you need – you cannot harvest a field that hasn’t been seeded and given time to grow, for example.

While doing this, you should hire your worker and while they cover the field move onto the other miscellaneous tasks or make a start on the gold nuggets – just remember to check back in on the worker from time to time to make sure they keep at the job.

Cultivating:

This will be the first step. Purchase any powerful tractor and a Kockerling Allrounder ($94,000) cultivator. Drive to the edge of your field of choice and hire a worker. Repeat as required to reach a total of 10 hectares, you will unlock:

Preparation is Key

Cultivate 10 hectares

Sowing:

The next step is sowing. If you still have the sowing machine you used to sow Field #28 with grass, you can just a set a worker going on that again.

Otherwise, you want another Amazone Condor 15001 sowing machine. You’ll need to purchase another 5 Lizard Seed BigBag’s from the Pallets category and fill the sowing machine.

Drive over to your field and set a worker to the task once again. Cover a total of 10 hectares to unlock:

Into the Soil

Sow 10 hectares

Fertilizing:

It's extremely likely that you obtained this achievement during the farmer jobs phase as fertilizing is the most common job. The information is included here, just in case.

While it is not the largest, I found the best fertilizing machine to be the Bredal F2WS 4000 – the reason being simply that the larger one takes forever to load. You will need to purchase 2 Lizard Liquid Fertilizer Tanks ($2,400) to fill it up (I found this was a little glitchy and I had to purchase several more tanks to fill it up). Repeat the process of hiring a worker again to unlock:

Make 'em Grow

Fertilize 10 hectares

Make 'em Grow

Harvesting:

Once again, all that grass you collected should have counted towards this and you should already have unlocked this achievement. The setup here is based on you sowing a new field, in which case the default will be wheat. Other crop types may require different equipment.

Buy the New Holland CR10.90 harvester ($430,000) and the New Holland SuperFlex Draper 45FT header ($62,000). Drive to your field and, once the crop has grown, hire a worker to do their thing. A total of 10 hectares later, you’ll unlock the final work-related achievement:

Bumper Harvest

2. BASKETBALL:

Home

Drive to the basketball court which is located here:

Bball Map

Once at the court, approach a basketball and press -LMB- when the hand icon appears to pick it up. Now go to either end stand just outside the outer semi-circular line. Line up your shot as shown and press -RMB- to throw.

Bball Shot

It might take a few shots but once you make the shot you will unlock:

3. CHAINSAW MAYHEM:

Home

Press -P- to open the Store menu. Scroll over to the right to find “Chainsaws”. Select this and buy a chainsaw – they are all the same, so it doesn’t matter which one you choose.

Now you just need to cut down fifty trees. Whilst on foot, scroll the -MMB- or press -1- or -2- to deploy your chainsaw. Now hold -RMB- and move the mouse to the right to rotate the chainsaw so it is parallel with the ground.

Approach a tree. Some very small trees cannot be cut down so aim for the larger ones. When you get close, a blue ring will appear around the trunk. Press and hold -LMB- to cut through the trunk.

Chainsaw

Your first tree unlocks:

Lumber...

Cut down a tree

Offline Game ModeSingle PlayerShop

Continue with the wholesale slaughter of innocent trees until you have cut down 50. They will always fall to the left and while falling trees cannot injure you, they can get in your way. Find a group of trees and start at the left end, so the next tree will always be to the right. Eventually you’ll unlock:

...jack

Cut down 50 trees

4. NEGATIVE BALANCE:

Home

Your aim to go into debt on the very first day, which needs a new save slot. From the main menu, select “Career”. Choose an empty save slot and continue. Select “Hard” difficulty and start the game.

On Hard difficult, you start with $15,000, which is shown at the top-right of the screen.

Hit -P- to open the Store page. Select Plows > Kuhn Vari-Master 153 for $15,000. Select and buy one. This will take your cash balance to $0.

Exit the shop. Press -Tab- until you are in the Case IH 160 Axial-Flow – it should be the first vehicle you enter. You should already be in position so press -Q- to attach the header. Press -Enter- to “Start Engine” (you can skip this step if you have turned “Automatic Engine Start” on in the menu).

Press -H- to hire a worker. The worker will automatically take over and begin. You will automatically start paying him after a moment or two, causing your balance to go into the negative. This will unlock:

Breakneck Bankruptcy

Reach a negative balance on your very first day
