How is the Harvesting System working?

All over the map you can find seeds. You can also find them in Gear Crates, Ship Wrecks and DMS Missions.


When you have found seeds, you can plant them via double click in your territory. You can plant a maximum of 10 plants per species, depending on the territory level. The following levels are needed:


Base Level 1 - 4: One Plant

Base Level 5 - 9: Two Plants

Base Level 10 - 14: Three Plants

Base Level 15 - 19: Four Plants

Base Level 20 - 25: Five Plants

Base Level 26: Six Plants

Base Level 27: Seven Plants

Base Level 28: Eight Plants

Base Level 29: Nine Plants

Base Level 30: Ten Plants


Every plant need to be irrigated and fertilized. You can do both 30 times, but only once per server period. When you plant the seeds, the plant needs at least 5 days to grow. So after 5 days you can harvest it. The more you water and fertilize it, the more it returns when harvested. For every activity you need a tractor. You can check the status of your plants in the XM8 Commander.


The maximum amount of returns is 15 items per plant.


For irrigating you need a Water Canister with Fresh Water or a Bottle of Fresh Water.


You can craft Fertilizer with the following items: Rotten Berries, Rotten Orange, Rotten Apple, Rotten Apricot, Rotten Pear, Rotten Watermelon, Rotten Banana and Rotten Carrot. There is also a Chemical Fertilizer made from raw meat and batteries. This fertilises better. You can craft the Fertilizer with a Empty Food Canister you can buy. The rotten fruits can be found everywhere on the map and also on DMS Missions.


A water pump ("Water Pump") can be used to irrigate several plants in the immediate vicinity. The Composter can be used craft raw meat and/or vegetables/fruit in Fertilizer. Note that no Chemical Fertilizer is produced here.


Some plants give rotten fruits when harvested. The probability is 1:1.


The selling price for drugs per plant is at least 35,000 Poptabs, depending on the skill up to 500,000 Poptabs.
