RAC : Financement ranking
A new ranking is available for regional cooperatives : financement ranking (shares, loans).
SimAgri training : New rule
Starting a few weeks ago now, a beginner doesn't need to have a SimPass to benefit from a master farmer training.
In order to get the 4 free SimPass days (and the SAEC help), he has to take a SimPass before the end of his training.
This rule also applies to the master farmer : if his trainee doesn't take a SimPass, he won't receive his 4 free SimPass days (to fight the multi accounts).
Farm hands : Long term employement contract
You can now hire farm employees on long term contract. They are paid 1750 euros per month, meaning 10 euros per Action Point. In case of lay off, a 350 euros indemnity per year of seniority must be paid.
Short term contract employees' salary changes from 1750 euros to 1925 euros per month, meaning 11 euros per Action Point.

AICs can now accept all insemination orders in just one click.

Loading area and silo : Enlargement

The change is instantaneous and doesn't require to empty the building.

USA : Region revamping
To boost the USA server, we are revamping the map to cut down the number of regions and thus regroup players.
States will be regrouped by climate areas. Only 7 regions will remain Pacific Coast, North West, South West, Center, South, North East and Alaska.
SAEC are temporarily shut down and will start anew with the new elections. In the meantime all allowances will be dealt automatically on this server.
Region yields have been reviewed and are available in the game rules.
USA : Server maintenance scheduled on the 6th November 14:00
On the 6th November 14:00, a server maintenance will take place during which the regions will be revamped. It should take a few hours.
Reactivation of milking stations and packing wearing off
Some time ago we stopped milking stations and packing wearing off to give you the opportunity to buildbig ones for your farm. We reactivate it today.
Please be aware that the more animals you have the more robots you will need otherwise your station will wear off very fast.
