5 Ways To Earn Money In The Farming Simulator 2015 Game

Online and video games have really evolved over the past few decades. From block games and shooting balloons we’ve moved up to simulation games; games that mimic our reality and culture and afford hours of enjoyment with their crystal clear graphics and lightning-fast speeds. The Farming Simulator label is one such interesting online simulation game series.

The Farming Simulator game series has been developed by Giants Software. Currently, there are 7 versions of the game with Farming simulator 15 being the latest. There are both PC and mobile versions of the game. This simulation video game brings to the screen the real farming experience. So, you grow and sell crops, breed livestock, acquire farming equipment and expand your farm as you go.

However, money is at the base of it all. The more money you have, the more you can think about developing your farm. You are provided with a reserve cash to get you started. But you realize it depletes soon and you have to earn more to make future farm purchases. Here is a list of the 5 legitimate ways to earn money in the Farming Simulator 2015 game.

1. Grow and sell crops –

Crops are the main item on a farm. Thus, buying and selling crops is the first way to earn money. You are free to choose from and grow different crop types. A tip is to choose high-earning cash crops. Fertilizing the crop increases the crop yield thereby increasing profit. It also gives you more experience when you harvest the crop. Choose a cheap fertilizer so you don’t spend too much on it.

When it comes to selling crops, do so when the price is high. Don’t be in a hurry to sell the harvested crops. You can wait for the demand to increase as it automatically raises the prices. You can check if the price is higher or lower than normal by checking the icons located beside the crop. You can also see what buyers are paying for a particular crop.

2. Missions –

There are missions generated at every level. You have to complete a given task in a given time frame. They include three types namely mowing grass, delivering crops and transporting cargo. Mowing missions earn less money, while missions involving transporting cargo have higher profits. You earn a reward, a sum of money, for every successfully completed mission. Completing a mission faster also increases your chances of earning added monetary bonuses.

3. Lumbering –

Cutting wood is one way to earn money at the start of your game. This is a new feature on the Farming Simulator 2015 game. You can manage forested areas by cutting them. The machines you need are a chainsaw and a trailer. When you have collected enough logs and wood chips, you can go to the shop and sell them. You can also unload the wood near the train.

4. Breed livestock –

Some of the animals you can breed on your farm are chicken, sheep and cows. Chickens are the easiest to keep while cows are the most time-consuming. However, in terms of earning potential, its cow husbandry that really pays off.

5. Placing objects –

You can place objects at various locations on your farm and leave them to generate money. Some of the objects you can place are greenhouses, solar collectors, wind energy converters and bee houses. All these generate a certain amount of money on an hourly basis.

Don’t sweat it when it comes to making money. Enjoy ploughing, sowing, fertilizing and harvesting and use these strategies to collect money.

Sharpen Your Shooting Skills – Indoors

Shooting simulators are cost effective, easy to use systems which can provide hours of entertainment and skill development for the whole family. You can use one of many replica laser firearms which are available or use you own gun on the simulator. New technology allows you to use your own personal firearm on the simulator, in conjunction with special laser-insert cartridges. Consistency is a key element for good shooting, now you can practice with the same gun on the simulator as you will take out into the field.

There are over 30 hunting and shooting games available for the system. Everything from bear hunting to dove shooting are options on the shooting simulator. Want to teach you kids about Hunter’s Safety?…there is a program for that, want to practice your shooting skills in a non-violent setting?…there are programs for that as well. Easy to setup and easy to use, you can be up and shooting in a matter of minutes. Do you find yourself uneasy at the shooting range? Always worried about someone else and their shooting ethics? All of this can be avoided by using a simulator in your own home. It is a fabulous way to provide a safe and effective learning environment for new shooters.

Want to introduce yourself or a friend to the exciting world of archery? It is a simple add on to the simulator. You can hold a competition with your friends for the high score, all the time building and improving you shooting skills.

Save time and money on your trips to the range, by practicing your shooting in your home. Getting ready for the first hunt of the season? Want to make sure you hit your target with poise? Build the confidence you need by practicing on an indoor shooting simulator, all from the comfort of your own living room or basement.

Factors in Choosing a Golf Simulator – Software

Maybe the most important factor in choosing the right golf simulator for you is the software.

Software:

o Game Play:
There are several different options to consider here. How many courses are available? How many courses come with the base unit? How many of the courses are renditions of real courses? Are the courses computer based images (3D) or is it a picture based images (2D)? What I would suggest looking for here is: The number of courses which suits your needs, there is no reason to pay for 50 courses if you are only going to play 10. It takes a long time to get board playing a course on a good golf simulator. The major problem with a picture based system, is you can only play your shot from where there has been a picture taken. So if you hit the ball into the rough or out of bounds and there has not been a photo taken of that area, you will be atomically taken back to your previous shot with a one stroke penalty. Now for a PGA player this might not be a big deal but for the rest of us, who do hit the ball into the rough, it makes for a very slow and very frustrating round of golf.

o The Latest and Greatest Software:
There are a few companies who have released new software this year (2009). The new software adds cool new features to the game play. New features include variable weather options, time of day options. Now you can play your round of golf in the afternoon with a stiff breeze which is constantly changing as you play your round, watch the sky darken as your round nears nightfall. As you play your favorite round on the cost, see the waves move in and out on the surf, hear the waves crash along the coastline. With the new software you will also notice the true to life fairway and greens. When you hit a drive the ball should roll with the slope of the course. Beware, there are some simulators on the market, when you hit a ball it will only go straight and will not follow the slope of the course. If you are looking for the most realistic round of simulated golf this is a must feature and one to not over look.

o Number of Golfers:
One feature which is important for all applications is the number of golfer who can play at one time. All simulators will allow one golfer to shoot their shot one at a time. But there are some simulators out there which limits to the total players to just two or four golfers per round. I have found in commercial applications it is best to have up to eight players per round. This makes tournaments and leagues much easier to manage and drive revenues for your business.

o Swing Analysis
Swing analysis software is the most important tool for people who want to use their simulator as a training instrument. A good swing analyzer will enable you to do club fitting as well as dissect a customer’s swing to determine problem areas. But again some simulators have this software built in and others offer it as an add-on which is not compatible the simulator software and can cost upwards of $15,000. What really makes a swing analyzer a useful tool is the information and feedback it provides. Features to look for are club speed, launch angle, ball speed, club and ball path and spin. Many of the variables which will determine what type of swing analyzer will come with your simulator will depend on the simulator’s sensor technology. This and more will be discussed in the article dedicated to the topic of “Sensor Technology”.

The software you choose will have a major outcome on the overall performance and playability of your simulator.
