Info over het spel

Tractors en landbouwmachines brengen je boerderij tot leven

De pc-simulator "Professional Farmer 2014" neemt de speler mee naar het platteland en geeft hobbyboeren volledige controle vanuit hun luie stoel. Boerderijmanagement, akkerbouw, het planten van gewassen, veehouderij en de handel in landbouwproducten zijn slechts een paar van de elementen die deze simulator te bieden heeft.

De speler begint zijn carrière als veelbelovende boer met een klein landgoed en verkrijgt langzamerhand steeds meer nieuw land, tractors, machines en dieren. Hij kan zich daarbij specialiseren of van alle opties gebruikmaken die het boerenbedrijf te bieden heeft. De sleutel tot succes is talent, ouderwets hard werken en een goede planning op basis van de seizoenen en de kennis die je tijdens het spel opdoet. Als boer leert de speler om te gaan met de krachten van de natuur, het weer te accepteren en zodanig te reageren dat de opbrengst van het land, de zorg voor de dieren en het budget voor nieuwe investeringen worden geperfectioneerd. Je kunt de boerderij bebouwen en alle werkzaamheden uitvoeren met talloze tractors en landbouwmachines (maaidorsers, hakselaars, hulpstukken, aanhangers, enzovoort) van bekende fabrikanten. Alleen een goede planning en hard werken maken van braakland een bloeiende en vruchtbare bodem. Natuurlijk kun je alle machines zelf besturen en bedienen, ongeacht of je nu de ploeg aanhaakt, de tractor bijtankt of de oogst uitlaadt.

"Professional Farmer 2014" bevat talloze gewassen, afhankelijk van de omgeving en het klimaat, waarmee de boer het land divers en effectief kan bebouwen voor een hoge opbrengst. Zelfs vruchtwisseling speelt een belangrijke rol bij de planning! De geïntegreerde seizoenen beïnvloeden het spel en bieden de speler een constante stroom van taken en opdrachten.

De plaatselijke boerenmarkt is je eerste springplank naar succes! Na korte tijd moet je onze zelfgekweekte en geoogste landbouwproducten naar de markt brengen en verkopen om je eerste geld te verdienen. Naarmate je meer verkoopt, zie je al snel meer grotere machines in je park en kun je grotere hoeveelheden landbouwproducten kweken. Geleidelijk aan kun je zelfs nieuwe gebouwen neerzetten en nieuwe akkers krijgen.

Ben jij klaar voor het boerenleven? Start dan je carrière op je eigen boerderij met "Professional Farmer 2014"!

Eigenschappen:

  • Voor het eerst in de geschiedenis van boerderijsimulators: verschillende seizoenen en jaarlijkse planning
  • Talloze originele tractors
  • Campagnemodus bevat een overvloed aan missies voor uren speelplezier. Dit spel heeft alles: van korte taken tot uitgebreide missies
  • Sandboxmodus laat de hobbyboer onbeperkt van het spel genieten: geen tijdsdruk of takenlijsten

"5/10. Kinda playable. Best game published by UIG." According to My Own Rating. (Played ver. 1.017)

WARNING: If you haven't played a farming simulator such as farming simulator 2013 (still the best option), or this game's bugged siblings by UIG, make sure you watch some videos before you buy. They're not action games. Don't expect adrenaline rush, or intense experiences or anything happening at all. It's about farming, riding the machines to work the fields. And then hiring someone else to do it for you. Do not expect to be anything more than slightly amused. This is the kind of game you play when you're wondering if you should kill everyone at work/school or just your boss or a specific person. Then you spend hours looking at the calm scenery, listening to the sound of the engines and some soothing music until you're sure you'll make it to the next weekend without killing anyone and feel confortable enough to go play another game.

As for Professional Farmer 2014, it fails to meet UIG standards of (lack of) quality, which is awesome. If you ever played other games published by UIG, you probably already associated their logo with frustration. It's pretty much a low quality unfinished alpha version game seal. However, for this game I only had a graphical bug that was fixed following the forum recommendation. No crashes, only a few minor bugs, some annoyance. No major issues. In other words, the game is pretty playable.

On the other hand, being playable doesn't mean it's good. The game also fails to deliver most of what was promised. The game save folder can reach a few GBs mark so I'm guessing they really planned on doing all they promised. At least they're storing all the data they'd need for it. But it doesn't seem to have been implemented. And, no one would ever expect this from a game related to UIG, they've announced a DLC/Deluxe version that promises to do all those things this game promised but didn't deliver! Yeah, right... I'm pretty sure this time it will be for real. They'd never keep selling dlcs, special editions and new yearly version of the game until people stop buying and they have to relabel (Agricultural simulator, anyone?)...

What they did deliver:
Career Mode - It's actually a several hours long tutorial. For the first 5-10h the game will use season advance on its own and you can't hire people to do your work for you. That means you'll have to do all the work on your fields and your neighbour's. The tasks are set up in a very annoying system of waypoints that prevent you from picking the best path for the 20min long trip to the store or the bank. It's not worth doing what you haven't been told to. Chances are the game will send you back there to do what has already been done and make you waste time riding the tractor around. And you can't refuse to help your neighbour. You can steal his crops when he hires you to harvest, though. Anyways, on career mode everything happens extremely slowly. If you're new to farming simulators, it will likely take 6-8h of gameplay until you're able to harvest your first field.

Free mode - No restrictions on how you play. That means you can do everything yourself almost roleplaying mode like in the career mode and spend a few weeks (rl time) getting the fields ready before you click next or you can just hire people to instantly do the setting up and skip to the next season (the only thing you can't hire people to do is fertilizing). The game can be anything from a few dozen clicks and then skip until harvest for a few more clicks to hundreds of hours of gameplay bewfore you're able to harvest.

The seasons system actually made the game turn based. You click to skip to the next one when you're done setting up your fields. It does seem to make a difference on your yield. If you keep track of your yield, you'll come up with a rotation. Then you'll drop it because it doesn't really matter if you can get a better yield of a less valuable crop. The crop rotation doesn't seem to make much of a difference. Especially for the Lupin part.

As for the animal husbandry, it's pathetic. You buy the animals and get some income everytime you click skip. You can see them, but there's no possible interaction. Also, they don't breed. You have to refill them from time to time.

The challenge:
The game is soooo challenging. You'll feel the urge to quit it but if you persist you can do pretty much anything and it will work out fine. You can start by rushing to the bank to get the highest loan possible, and to the store to buy all the animals the game lets you buy. That's it. You win. Your assests will increase like 2k each time you skip. If you want to play the rest of the game, with the remaining money you can buy the two largest fields and hire workers to plow, cultivate and sow soy on all your fields. To do that you should abandon your tractor at the store and teleport home to your other tractor. You can fertilize the nearby fields or just skip until fields are ready to be harvested. Then you hire people to harvest everything. Then skip back to spring and repeat until you have plenty of money to buy more of the larger fields. Repeat the process, maybe buy a faster tractor to ride to new fields. If you feel like trying the hard work, buy the best machinery and work the nearby small fields. Done.



Minor Bugs:
*Missing crops. Sometimes the game will lose track of fields (resetting to 0%). This may lead to losing the plowed pct info, the cultivated pct info, the sowed pct info or all of them. Which is an absolutely lovely thing to happen if you've done all the work on the field by yourself (2-12h rl time wasted). It's just a small annoyance if you're hiring people to do the slower tasks for you.

*GPS and Map blackout at night. Yup. They both depend on sunlight to work properly. At night, you can only see crops due to their natural bioluminescence.

*Closing menu. The menu will close when you hire workers for a task. This can't possibly have been designed this way. I refuse to believe anyone would be this stupid. It takes 3 key presses and 9 clicks to set up a field before you skip to the next season. And then another key press and 3 clicks to harvest. Anyways... since you're probably not going to want just a few fields, it scales up to hundreds of clicks per season. The ui is supposed to be well designed. If they didn't want the possibility for quick progress in the game, they shouldn't have hired work finish instantly. Maybe add a timer and worker queue if they don't want quick progress. But, nope. It's not worth clicking that much on a farming simulator.

TL;DR: The game is playable. They finally completed Agricultural Simulator 2011/2013 (although the animal husbandry was better at the bugged unfinished siblings). It's almost 60% as good as their competitor's FS2013 (except for the appearance that is actually better than fs). If you really want the game, wait until they release the dlc/deluxe version to see if they delivered what was promised when they launched the professional farmer 2014.

DO NOT BUY this game. Remember this. The game has potential and is fun for some time, some thing are done really good. The farming is more enjoyable than FS2013, tractor controls are more realistic, physics are better and it has seasons. The map is better, you don't feel so alone. But everything is not done properly and lacks something. Feels like beta.

Graphics - it would be good if it would support anti-aliasing and the bloom would be lower. Objects, trees are popping everywhere. sometimes graphics looks very nice. Morning or evening really looks amazing.

Gameplay - it gets boring fast, because there's nothing more to do except for plowing/seeding/harvesting. There are animals but you can't interact with them, they just exist and give you some money. Aaaaand there are bugs. Career objectives sometimes do not register when you do them, so either do them again or load the game. And the interface.....all the tractors and equipment are in one place, there are no categories, you need to scroll through everything if you want to find something you need.

And the WORST thing. DEVELOPERS ARE CHARGING FOR THE PATCH. Yes for the patch, not ADD-on or DLC but P-A-T-C-H. Soooo if you didn't bought the DLC you do not get the patch for the whole game. And there's absolutely no communication and support from the devs, they just don't care. Please do not support them, do not buy their products.

WARNING: NO INVERT MOUSE!!!!

No response from the forums

Loads of people having issues with loads of issues

From graphics issues, to low fps, to not being able to enter and exit vehicles, to crops not making money, to just plain unplayable and non starting games

If you read the comments from other games that have been published by UIG you will see they are all filled with negative feedback

PLEASE stay away from UIG at all costs
As they say by funding them you are just feeding the trolls

This game is too slow, not pretty enough and not feature rich enough to be considered a worthwhile purchase while Farm Sim 2013 is out there. I own and have played both. FS2013 is miles ahead despite the fact that it's ... well not all that great. At least FS2013 made farming fun even if it is really funny how bad it can be.
