My Land Tips and Tricks
#1
Whether you are just getting started with the epic farming simulation My Land or you are a seasoned pro, this tips and tricks article will give you some ideas on how to turn your land into a thriving and profitable business venture!

   

  1. Plant a Tree - At the very beginning of the game, plant a few evergreen trees in random spots throughout the map.  You don't need a lot, maybe just five or six.  The reason is that the trees are the cheapest and easiest way to raise the attraction level of your land, without raising your property tax value.  They also spread automatically on their own.  The only downside is that they take a long time to grow.  Planting a few of them early on will let you avoid spending big money if you want to plant a forest later in the game.  And you can always just build over them if they get in the way.
  2. Don’t Go Grass Crazy – In step one, I mentioned that trees will spread on their own over time.  But grass is a lot faster and more aggressive in spreading, and can crowd out trees and kill forests before they are even able to take root.  Try to keep your grass contained into fenced in areas where you actually need/want it to grow.
  3. Start With Crops – It may be a lot more profitable in the long run to raise livestock, but they are slow to mature and expensive to maintain, especially at the beginning of the game.  Start out with a couple of cheap crops like Wheat and Corn and get a cash flow routine going before moving in to livestock.
       
  4. Watch Your Livestock Population – Some animals, particularly cows, can go into crazy breeding mode when confined in a small area.  If you have too many cows in a small area, the grass on the land will not be able to feed them all.  When you have uncontrollable breeding taking place, you should sell the older animals to make room for the younger ones.  Also keep an eye on the sell value of your animals.  Do not let them sit around for a long time after they reach their peak value.  You are only wasting money feeding them at that point.  Don’t let your animal populations get out of control.
  5. Save the Attractions for Last – Visitor attractions like sidewalks, toll booths, and pizza stands are fun to build, but if the attraction rating on your land is below 50%, you will never have enough visitors to pay off the initial investment.  Before trying to build visitor accommodations, use evergreen trees and water to increase the attraction rating of your land.

I prefer starting out with corn, then carrots, eventually converting them to an apple orchard. I only spend have the $5000 and save for a harvester as it save a lot of time. My first mistake I had assumed I needed trenches of water near the crops, but saw from the recent video that is not true. I hope to be making videos about this game with some game play soon.

My layout is planted in 6x6 squares with space before next 6x6 square and place a scarecrow between. I currently have 3 sets up and down and 5 across. I do not have pics yet but will share my farm at some point.

One idea for the game would be a seeder/planter, maybe green machine to help plant selected crop.

I thought about making it so that instead of clicking on your crops to instantly earn money, you would need to actually cut them, store the seed in silos, replant manually, etc. I am torn on this idea because, in my mind, it would be more fun like that. But for casual players, they might think it is too much of a chore. I don't know yet.

Right now I am mainly working on removing all of the hard coding that I originally put into the game when I first released it, and am moving all of the game data into a separate file, which will make it easier to add new content going forward. Once that is done though, I will start looking at adding new crops/buildings and toying with the logic. I just don't want to make a change that turns away some of the current players!

You don't have macro's for that in the game (yet). You will have to do it by hand.
