I never really had any problems with this one as I went on and did other side quests only taking a little bit of time to do a little bit of scanning every so often.

I'm still toiling with this. Can't get the last lumberer activity, they just walk about and smoke all day. I saw them once playing bowls but didn't think to scan. Haven't seen them do it again.

When does Norris (the lazy one) pan for gold? It's the last one I need for the achievement. And I think he knows this and he isn't playing fair.

EDIT: Used the night/daytime hack to change to day and scanned he doing something else and got the achievement! Thought hacks disable achievements. Strange.

you dont necessarily need the hack. if you load up a memory, like 2-1, and then wait to abort until after the cutscene and you take control, it'll reboot to early morning (I haven't tested it, but I feel it reboots to the time of sequence.)

Any word on the patch not completely fixing this? I have 2/3 for the lumberers and scanned them looking at wood and it said I've already scanned it even though I hadn't. My first two were chopping wood and sawing a log.

The doctor only ever picks herbs and reads for me. I did all the other ones without a problem except these two.

Edit: I started for this achievement after the patch.

is it suggested to not scan multiple inhabitants together? Ex. Lumberer looking at wood with woodworker.

Confirmed tricks to help with this buggy cheevo!

I too was screwed by the bug before the patch came out. I just replayed the entire game (took about 10 hours) just to get this achievement. I used this compilation of tricks that people had been suggesting and had success!

1) If a homesteader is doing a previously scanned activity, go far enough away on the map that their icon no longer shows up on mini map. Then return and more often than not they will automatically be doing something else.

2) Persistently work on recording activities throughout your playthrough. However, don't expect to finish them all until after Sequence 12 is finished and your Homestead Missions are mostly finished. If you get one or two new activities per homesteader, per Sequence, be content and move on.

Sometimes you may not get any until several Sequences/Homestead Missions are completed. Miner and Doctor weren't 3/3 for me until after the credits had rolled and all Homestead missions were done.

3) GET THE BUGGIEST ONES FIRST. Get the lumberers and farmers especially, as soon as possible. Nail all 3/3 and don't procrastinate on those.

4) Use your Animus Hacks. I used "Always Daylight" and still got the cheevo to pop.

5) Use your vision mode to see when they are orange. Sometimes you can get credit for an activity when all it looks like the people are doing is walking.

Good luck!

Same exact thing happened to me. I started the encyclopedia AFTER the patch. Had no problem with any of the activities but had 2/3 for the lumberers. Scanned them at the pile of wood and it said already completed. I am going to try and fool around with rescanning others or trying to catch the wife churning butter. I REALLY hope this is fixed so I don't have to replay everything. Any chance it'll get fixed again?

So, I finally managed to finish this achievement. I can also add another action for Norris to the list. Sometimes, you'll see him with Lance as they examine the mine for structural defects.

Are you HIGH?

Yeah, the graphics look nicer, but that isn't anything to crow about - all games look better (or damned well SHOULD) as a franchise moves forward...

But to say that the gameplay is better is to either admit to a massive drug problem, or to being a shill for the fucking game company.

I'm quoting this because it worked so well for me. I was able to reduce a few hours of frustration with Norris to about five minutes of walking until I was able to finally finish this achievement. Thanks a lot!

I can confirm using the always daylight hack is fine. I had the lumberers glitches at first, but here's how I got them done in about 10 minutes. Run from them to the tailor and immediately return using eagle vision. They should be orange and then scan, if you already have the activity repeat the run to the tailor. On my 3rd return the woman there was churning butter and it popped. Finally got my 1k after quite a few headaches!

Kind of across from the church, IIRC.

I do recall that it is light bluish.

Across from the lumberers I think. Its a yellow house I believe. There's an herb patch and tent/shed thing around back.

Last one I need is Big Dave (at 2/3 now). All he does is use his forge, then back to the grindstone. He never leaves, and I've dropped in randomly to his place probably 30 times.

How do you get him to go shoe the horse?

I caught him shoeing the horse while stopping by right before playing the last couple of story missions, all my homestead missions were done by this point.

However I cannot for the life of me get Ellen to wash the clothes in a bucket. Anyone have any tips on how get this to work? She constantly checks the chair, the shirt, those racks beside the porch, picks berries, and smokes, but never, ever washes clothes.

Edit: I ending up getting the cheevo a little bit after I posted. In case it helps anyone else, I was standing near her as she went back and forth between the chair and shirt. I walked down near the bucket and she ended up following me to it and started washing clothes. Not sure if it's coincidence or it triggered her to follow me but either way I'm very relieved to get this ridiculous achievement out of the way.

Norris is doing my nut in. I've managed to scan him when he's in the Mine with Lance, but all he's seemed to do otherwise is f*ck off to the Pub and stand by the River Smoking.

I need the last Doctor Action too, and then i'm done. I've got him reading under his Tree, and him inspecting the Patient.

EDIT - I finally got the Achievement. Norris went into his little Shed and I scanned him when he came back out.

Norris was the biggest pain because he is removed from everyone. Got mining and filling the lantern back to back, but it took several visits before he panned. Sometimes you can just watch him go in and out of the shed and hope he's carrying a tool. Usually for me, he would do one job and go smoke. When I got my gold panning, he commented about seeing me early so maybe you have to catch him first thing in the morning. He filled the lamp, then got his pan.

The rest? Work on gradually as said above. I would run between the houses and as long as you got far enough away they usually changed tasks. Shoeing the horse for the blacksmith took awhile. I got the doctor's third when he was talking to Norris and what's her face about their wedding where he normally reads. Dumb luck. Lumberers took awhile... Got them sawing a log, splitting wood, and loading the cart to finish it. No real issues for the rest... Started after the first patch and finished after the second.

I got Ellen washing clothes before her mission to NY for silk... Now I never see her washing. Now that the glitches are hopefully patched, start early and visit often. Best advice I've seen on this. Good luck.

If you're having trouble finding some of the villagers, make sure to listen to all the interactive conversations. I was stuck at 2/3 on Lance for a while and couldn't find his icon anywhere but he was in the bar with the doctor. As soon as I hit the conversation, he went back to his house.

WTF?!?!?!?!?

Godfrey and Terry don't do anything. I've gotten to see them work together chopping wood...THAT's IT. Godfrey walks around all the time and eats an apple on a regular basis. Terry seems to spawn on top of a hill, then walk down to inspect a wheel on the cart with the wood on it. I'm going to go back to them after I finish the game, and hopefully they will be doing something other than what I've mentioned. This is definitely one of the dumbest achievements ever created.

I had issues getting a final activity for Norris (miner). After multiple fast travels with the sun and moon hack turned on, I finally found him working on the mine with the blacksmith repairing a sagging section of the tunnel near the entrance. Scanned this and it worked to give me 3/3 activities. I've checked several websites and haven't found this activity listed. Although to be fair I did not read through this entire thread so I may have missed it. Hope this helps someone as it was frustrating me to no end.

I got nearly all my activities through the day, but while I followed the damn woodworker around for 2 days trying to get his last activity, on the second day when he went into his house for the night I went straight to lumberers and got there last activity at night. One of the lumberers was standing on cart full of wood and the other was standing at the back of the cart. I hope this helps.
