Whether you're an experience farmer or a novice that has never picked up a Farming Simulator game before, we can always learn something new. Farming Simulator 22 was released last month and there are a lot of new features in the game.
One of these features is the sugar mill, a factory that you can travel to to process your harvest of sugarcane. Where is this facility though and what do you get out of using it? We've got everything you need to know right here!
Where is the sugar mill?
In Farming Simulator 22, every map is unique. There is no set map that all players use, the sandbox effectively changes on the roll of a dice. Not all maps have a sugar mill on it, although some do. If there is one, you need to travel to it, go outside to the spanner icon and press "R" when you're at the spanner icon.
The sugar mill will then be yours, but beware, you cannot sell a built-in facility after you've bought it.
If there isn't a sugar mill on the map, or if you prefer to make your own from scratch, you're in luck. Go to the in-game store, then go to construction before navigating to production and then factories. It costs $60,000 to purchase, which isn't a lot when you think about it.
The sugar mill will intake all of the sugarcane, sugarbeets and chopped beets that you can give it. In return, it will produce sugar, hence the name of the facility. Getting these crops to the factory is easy enough, just go round the back and dump when you want to use, using a trailer.
Either walk up to the spanner icon out front, or go to the production chains in the pause menu to get production up and running. Once you've loaded the crops into the sugar mill, press activate in this menu. All bought facilities come as deactivated by default.
There are three options when it comes to the output of sugar from the mill. The first is storage, where sugar will stored for you to do whatever you want with later on.
The second is selling, where the sugar will automatically be sold to the highest bidding customer. However, the issue here is that you take a hit of 40% for the delivering of this product. So, financially speaking, you're best off storing the sugar before manually selling it on the market later.
Lastly, there is distributing. Distributing sends the chocolate either to the bakery to make cakes or the dairy to make chocolate. If you don't own either of those facilities though, the sugar will just go to storage by default.
If you're more comfortable watching someone else carry out tasks than reading about it, don't worry, we've got you covered. Farmer Cop produced a guide on the sugar mill of his own, and it's linked below:
