Old Faithful and Curse of the Llama

Is anybody else having trouble with these two achievements? I've wasted countless hours trying to trigger these. Last night I fell asleep on my couch letting my island run to the year 2035 without triggering either of these. It's driving me nuts.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

can this be done in sandbox by changing settings?

Believe me, I've tried. I had random events dialed up to 'Plenty', set # of years to maximum, and let the island run and run. Neither triggered.

It took me nearly 80 years just to get one volcano.. then got the other two in under ten years laters.. Just keep playing it'll come.

Now just got to work out why Elitist won't unlock.

You would probably be better off just starting up another sandbox game with plenty of disasters and maybe you will get better luck in the next one.

Can someone confirm that these are obtainable in sandbox once the time runs out and you select "keep playing"? I've had numerous volcano eruptions and whatnot past that point and no achievements ((

To SLRU: You have to have all 10 disasters in 1 mission, no continues. Follow the guide for setting up your game. Sand box is fine, but no God mode.
Hope this helps.

I've heard you can keep playing and still get the 10 disaster achievement?

If anybody is still interested in this, I'll have the easy method here for you. What you'll need is the MODERN TIMES DLC and play MISSION 4. I got both achievements there without a problem (had 7 volcanoes and 14 earthquakes) because every six months or so, something like this happens. And as if it weren't enough already, you can even trigger volcano eruptions yourself every year (the orange expression mark symbol in front of your palace lets you do this).

Can anyone confirm either way whether these achievements are attainable post-2000 ? (IE: after you hit 'keeping playing')

I can confirm Old Faithful popping at 2012 after 'keep playing' in sandbox mode. It lagged a good 10 minutes behind the third eruption though.
