I have had the idea for a farming game like no other out there at the minute were you get to build up you farm from scratch. All you have is 50,000 pounds/dollars to build building and buy machinery.This game is only for pc/computer. So to start off the whole game you first make a name for your character as well you can customize him/her and then you can name the farm as you desire so the first screen when you come into the actual game is black with a bit of writing on it saying that you now have to choose a location for your farm and you can change what sort of map it is so from a normal road map to a land fertility map and so on all just to help you choose the right spot for your farm then you see a little movie of your customized character in a car going away from your chosen spot and then pulling into a building yard to start making the plans for your farm (now you see a map of your whole farm area)(say 50km squared) and a list of all buildings down the right or left side of the screen which you click to select and place it on the map in whatever position suites the area you have chosen the most and where abouts you would like it to be. You can also change the size of it from normal to small to big. So after that you see another little movie of a fleet of building machines and supplies going in the direction of your chosen farm location.(there will then be a timer counting down to the completion of the build. Now you see a small movie of you leaving the building yard and going into a farm machines trader then a screen comes up with every machine in the game (with pictures)(and please base these on real farming machines and not fake ones)with tractors at the top then harvesters then telehandlers and trailers after that is the implements(harvester heads, telehandler heads and other machines for the tractors eg. mower, seeder, slurry tankers etc.). It should be able to play on any computer/pc ,the graphics should be fairly good. You should start with about 8 field of crops (different ones like wheat , barley,corn and grass). and of course there is also the option to go into town for a while for shopping and food also you can et married and have children and hire workers to help you but you need to build up your reputation to be able to get better people and machines or buildings. You will of course sadly pass away and then you see a movie of you son/daughter get married and continue your work on the farm...

fell free to add thing I may have missed out that would make the game even better and I think ill let the game designer make up a button configuration and if it is possible steering wheel and joystick control options

That's one big wall of text. You might want to use paragraphs so people will read it.

To be honest, it sounds a lot like a mix between Sim Farm and Harvest Moon.

If everything is simulated: going shopping, building stuff marrying, having kids (?!) then how long would the gameplay take? Approx 40 years of gaming?

thanks everyone for your in put but the fact is i took some ideas from farming simulator 2009/10 like the graphics ad the machinery but i also took the cinematic from harvest moon but the thing that really sets this game off is the fact that it ends the way YOU want it to like you could be a successful farmer or you could not but there is also another point which i came up with after reading some of the comments that if you fail as a farmer you go (another small movie)to a job centre and you can chose what job you have then but when the movie end it is game over as the game is about farming and not about another job like housing executive or lawyer so hope that clears some parts up for you and no you wont have to play it for 40 years whoever said that it would probably be the same sort of game a farming simulator where if you succeed is goes on for a while after that but the game will eventually have a finishing shocker that is completely different if unexpected if you play the game
