What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have built a solid technical basis but need more time to finish the remaining work with the help of your community feedback.

We have already implemented numerous wishes for improvement from the community and have fixed many reported bugs. At the same time we’re aware that the game still needs some love and time until the final version.

We will introduce more crop variety and the according machines into the game in the future and improve the management area. The simulation of the plant growth needs more balancing. The multiplayer aspect is also of great importance to us which we want to finish until the final version.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access is estimated to last until May 2019.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We’re starting with the maize cycle, which contains all required functions and machines necessary for growing and harvesting maize. In addition we have an employee system that can take on most of the work steps like transportation for example. More crop variety and machines, optimization of the AI as well as the following points will be added in the course of the Early Access phase.

  • More variety in crops, animals, machines and brands
  • A story including voice acting
  • Cultivated grassland including the required machines
  • Grain farming including the required machines
  • The management aspect will be extended considerably
  • Seasons
  • Multiplayer
  • Vehicle maintenance
  • Real estate, farm expansion, acquisition of other farms
  • Moveable silo heaps
  • Extended plant growth, diseases, weeds and pests
  • TrackIR Support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cattle and Crops is already quite enjoyable. It includes the following:
  • Two playable maps: a 4 square kilometer (988 acres) big territory with over 100 hectares (247 acres) of arable farm land, distributed over 49 fields, with a farm, a sewage treatment plant, an animal trader, a cooperative and a harbor. In addition there is a smaller tech demo map with tutorial missions
  • Includes a continuous story campaign and the opportunity of a sandbox simulation
  • Vehicles with realistic driving behavior and feedback
  • Maize cycle, machines from soil cultivation to seeding and harvest
  • Dynamic ground with puddles and persistent driving tracks
  • Comprehensive weather simulation with rain and evaporation, based on realistic weather data
  • Plant growth
  • Animal feeding and the buying/selling of animals
  • Hireable employees and assigning of tasks
  • Complex AI that assists you in your field and transport tasks
  • Map independent player profile where you can deploy your vehicle fleet on different maps
  • WorldEditor with the tools to create new maps, buildings and vehicles and load them as mods

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We’re reserving the right to increase the price after the end of the Early Access phase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“During the prototype phase of the last months we received a lot of feedback in our own forums and implemented bug fixes and improvements.

We’ll introduce a new public bug tracker in the near future which will collect the bugs from the Steam Community Hub and our website and provide an overview of the reported bugs and what we’re working on at the moment.

With your support we can develop Cattle and Crops into a unique experience in the area of farming simulations.”

CNC Birthday and EA Update Release v0.2.1.0

Cattle and Crops​ 30% Sale

On June 6 2017 the first version of Cattle and Crops has been released. We have chosen this day as the official birthday for CNC and in celebration of this occasion we have started a discount action for all of you.

In addition we have also released an update. With v0.2.1.0 we again have made some improvements and fixed some bugs. The worker has been further reworked in the field of chopping and threshing. The vehicle/implement combinations shouldn’t take unnecessary turns any longer and a smooth transfer for chasers during driving now works as well.

The task system has been enhanced, you can assign yourself for more tasks as driver now. This works for the animal transport task and for harvesting, you can choose the Jaguar/Tucano here. More tasks will follow.

All other changes, bug fixes and news you can look up in our changelog as always.

We want to express our greatest gratitude for all the support that you have helped to shape the development of Cattle and Crops with. To a successful future!

About This Game

Cattle and Crops is a new generation of farming simulation designed with special attention to detail.

You have the choice: control the vehicles yourself and experience realistic driving or leave the work to your employees, lean back and enjoy the field ballet.

Highly detailed machinery, realistic harvesting methods, original sounds and an authentic vehicle physics system offer you a compelling experience in Cattle and Crops.

Experience the varied everyday life of a farmer. Choose between a story mode or free play. The game also provides additional tutorial missions to make you familiar with the simulation.

Hire employees to cultivate your fields, or to assist you when you’re harvesting. You can delegate tasks with your calendar and watch your employees do their job or take care of the work in front of you on your own. Cattle and Crops provides a complex employee system where the workers take care not to damage the harvest.

Skillfully avoid unnecessary driving tracks on the field to keep soil compaction low so your plants can spread their roots in the loose soil to maximize the yield.

Take care of your crops so don’t hang their heads and make your fields prosper.
Plant growth (using the real BBCH scale) is based on multiple soil attributes like moisture, pH value, temperature, sunshine hours, NPK fertilizer and diseases.

Gather the harvest at the right time and try not to get stuck in the mud when it’s raining.

Cattle and Crops offers a range of big, well known industry brands such as CLAAS, Köckerling, Lemken, Mercedes-Benz and a lot more.

Extend the game with your own vehicles, implements and maps. We’re providing you with all the tools you need for it.
