Red Dead Redemption 2

Here are some things you may or may not know about this game.

Rockstar has produced a masterpiece of a video game. It’s set in the not so Wild West of 1899. The story line is okay and has more than one twist. But to be honest, I never like the story lines. Multi-player online is my thing and this one is massive. Taking a train to get around helps.

What You can Do

When first going into the “Free Roam”, it was like Grand Theft Auto. Gangs were roaming around, shooting everyone they saw. As a newb I was killed a lot. I was also hog tied. Drug behind a horse. Burnt to death and blown up. I also was dropped off of a cliff.

You can join in the mayhem. Beware that RDR2 has the concept of Honor. Do bad things and you get a Bad Rep. I try to play as a Chaotic Good. I hire out to kill folks the Sheriff or Marshall want killing. But I’m not above stealing from saddlebags or bushwhacking someone when I need some cash. If the Bounty on your head gets too high, AI Posses and Lawmen will hunt you down without mercy.

You can pay off your bounties at a post office.
You can use your horse as cover. You can also trampled people to death. I shoot horses to deny them to my enemies.

You can also hunt or fish. I find this oddly relaxing. I sell my catch at the butcher for a little cash.

I get big cash and experience points by playing “Gun Rush”. It’s a free for all reminiscent of Battlefield or Call of Duty.

Team Gun Rush is no more.

Odd Things that Happen

Odd things can happen in Free Roam. If you find yourself on Roanoke Ridge at night strange happen. You might see a UFO or get attacked by cannibals. There is also a cabin with an old man. He invites you in You wake the next morning. Your lifeforce is drained and you’ve been clearly ass-raped. It’s best to shoot him in the head when you meet him. Ladies are ignored by him.

CHEATING

Like any video game, cheating is rampant. Especially in Gun Rush.

BUSINESS PLAN FOR FARMVILLE 2

How to succeed at Farmville 2 without cheating.

FV2 Lucky Farms 151

 

ASSETS

Your land is your most valuable asset.  Make sure that all of your land and water plots are growing something.  On your water plots grow stuff that you might not need right now.  Later you can dry them as you need them which is faster than the growing and drying process.

Combine your trees into groves as soon as possible.  Upgrade these groves as fast as you can.

Build and upgrade water plots.

Complete your orders as soon as possible so you can collect favors for upgrades.

LIABILITIES

The work force are your Sweetie and the Kids.  Train them up as soon possible.  Their lazy little fucks if they don’t have anything to do so train them in all tasks quickly.  If you are building a new project, use the family members to get you stuff that you lack.

 

DECISION MAKING PRIORITIES

  1. Complete your orders.
  2. Train your people.
  3. Complete Special Projects
  4. Upgrade your farm.
  5. Expand your farm. Know what you need before you get there and stockpile resources to complete the upgrade orders when you get there. Google it.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Where do you get stuff you need and get it quickly?

Visit neighbors.  They are a good source of all kinds of goodies.  You can harvest their crops and get some for yourself.  You can fertilize their crops and get fertilizer.  You always get water and experience points to level up. Visit your neighbor’s FB page to pick up things you posted for.  I usually right click and open in a new tab so I can see what I got.  Liking the post seems to work as well.

Leveling up. When you get around 10,000 points o leveling up, you should think of planting and watering everything you’ve got.  Empty plots should get Raspberries or other long growing high value crops.  Remember everything gets to be harvested after you level up.  Make sure all your animals are fed, they get hungry again.  Go around and harvest all your sheds. This goes for when you are about to complete your Co Op order, everything will get harvested then as well.

flooded pasture

 

The Water Tower and the Windmill.  So you’re out of water?  Upgrade your Water Tower and get it instantly refilled.  The same goes for your Windmill.

MEALS Baked Eggplant is cheap to make and provides abundant meals for your work force.  Can’t grow eggplant yet?  Find something else. Custard pies work well until you can grow eggplant.  Go with what you’ve got.  Say you’ve just got done making a bunch of tortillas for a Project and now you don’t need them… Guess what’s for lunch?

CASH! So you have everything to level up expect the cash.  Here’s how to get it.  Sell off your inventory.  The antiques go first because their expensive and you never need them.  Keep an eye out for stuff you need and dump the rest.  So how to you sell 25,000 Milk.  Start the sale and then tape down your mouse button so it keeps selling.  Then go do the dishes or something and come back to see how much cash you have.  I keep a level of 10,000 of Milk. 2500 horseshoes.  Everything else I keep at 1000.  KEEP ALL THE FISH YOU HAVE!  They’re too hard to come by.

bait

FISH.  Keep your water plots fertilized and growing at all times.  Watercress seems to produce bait in a reasonable time frame.  Experiment to find other water crops that give you a bunch of bait. Fully upgrade your water plots and you can stop worrying about getting golden lures.

FEED.  At first Soy Beans is a good source of feed.  It grows fairly fast.  After that Azuki Beans do well.  In a pinch use anything at the top of the list but leave a reasonable amount for your use.  Sometimes I start at the top of the list and take 5 here and three there.

FARMVILLE2-FAIL

THE PASTURE- This a great resource.  When you need something, drag these bitches back out and feed them.

 Pig-in-the-Hen-House

ELDER TREES- They take up space but don’t sell them, store them.  Like the prized animals, bring them out when you need something.
