same thing for me, i only needed 1 lumber, 1 tailor, and 1 blacksmith and i was on sequence 10.

one thing i did was fill all the wood resources and items for tailoring and the stuff for the blacksmith, then i just kept going back, quit out and go back, repeating this method i eventually got the lumber and blacksmith in the same time i was in the game.

when i quit out i actually quit out at the area where i needed, example being the circle on the map of the item, like the lumber yard, when i did this i managed to get it so maybe you could try this, not saying it will work but it's worth a shot seeing as i got it doing this after only 6 quit/reloads.

good luck.


EDIT: got my achievement now, after trying to quit reload to get the last tailor task i needed, she was doing the same task so i just walked away over to the nearby table and chairs where you normally see her sat with corinne, so i stood near there and after she did a task she then did another and after that did another one which is the one i was missing, so if someone can try the quit/reload method and then just wait in the area to see if it works for them, im guessing though you would have to try this when one of the workers are actually doing a task so they can finish it and then go to another task, it won't work if they are already walking around.

it's worth a try.

When I scan Norris getting his tools sharpened, the game thinks I am scanning Big Dave.
-After this post I watched Morris light his lamp and then go pan for gold. I also purchased all of his gold ore, I am not sure if that helped.

I found this achievement to be a blatant way to lengthen people's time spent on this game. The events are so random; it doesn't require any skill.

I randomly scanned people as I was playing the game and doing missions. Towards the end, I just stalked the ones who I was still missing. Followed them everywhere they went, just like a creeper. Lol.

This is a pain sometimes, they are Gold but won't register first time or takes a while.

Latest example for the Innkeepers:
Oliver - Preparing/chopping up a pig carcass, it wouldn't register (yes I was doing it right, I already finished Farmers and Woodworker). I then seen Corrine slapping a bull making it do work, that registered, so went back to Oliver and it worked.

As a result I can't get Lumberers to register, I have seen Terry and Dan sawing wood and Catherine churning butter.


I have finished Sequence 6, so far I have:
Farmers 3/3
Woodworker - 3/3
Huntress - 2/3
Innkeepers 2/3
Lumberers - 1/3
Miner - 0/3

Not yet added to Homestead:
Blacksmith
Doctor
Tailor

Still loads to go.

I am only missing Norris 3/3 and the Woodworker 3/3.

Any ideas as to what time of day and tips or tricks to obtain these final 2 ?

What is it exactly that they are doing at 3/3 ?

Just follow them around and keep checking. Sometimes, it will look like they are doing the same thing but they aren't. I got the achievement a little while ago, there's not really getting around it.

I've followed them around. I think I'll go mad if I continue.

I have a problem.. I have never EVER seen Lance before (the woodworker) Is there certain times of the day he shows up or come out or something? Because I have never seen him before..

Does this sound like a glitch or does anyone else have the same problem?

Use Eagle Vision, the homesteaders will light up when they are doing a scannable task. Norris and the woodworker were my last two and once I started using Eagle Vision I found the tasks I'd been missing.

Using the Animus weather/season hack to always sunny, day time definitely seemed to help. I actually loved this game but this achievement was retarded. I literally spent 15 minutes following the lumberer old lady walk around and wash windows until finally she churned some butter and I got the cheevo... I got an achievement for watching a woman churn butter, let that sink in for a moment...

He never panned in the river for me. I don't remember which actions he did, but it wasn't panning. I think he sharpened pick, messed with the lantern, and i think something by myriam's house. There's more than just 3 actions I think for each NPC.

I read somewhere that crafting better mining tools increases the chance of seeing Norris sharpen them, but I'm not sure.

getting so annoyed with this achievement now! and all for 10g *sigh*

I had no trouble getting all of them scanned until I had lumberjacks and miner left.... been about 2 days I have spent so long watching the lumberers ALL DAY and all they ever do is go fishing! ocassionally they smoke and once or twice I have seen them load the cart which I have obviously scanned, but never reading a newspaper or any of the other actions listed. And all Catherine ever does is clean the windows over and over again, i've never seen her churning butter. It's so frustrating.

in the case of norris (the miner) I see most people are having difficulty seeing him pan for gold... every single time I go there he is panning for gold and does it for hours at a time! I have never seen him mine or anything else. However, it gave me a scanned activity when I scanned him just standing around doing nothing so apparently I have 2/3 but if I scan him lighting a lantern it says activity already scanned, and when I tried to scan him sharpening tools it just wouldn't let me focus on the character?! this achievement is driving me insane does anyone have any tips for getting the lumberers to do jobs or seeing norris do anything except pan for gold?!

Check the time of day

This one took a dedicated 2 hour sit down, but just focus on each character one at a time, and check the time of day! characters do different stuff at different times of day. Don't be afraid to chill on someone's roof for the night and spy on them first thing in the morning as they milk the cow haha

THANK YOU!! Left this achievement mostly done not long after the game first came out. Just finished the DLC so decided to finish this too, did all the entries I was missing damn quick and easy (which is nuts because I was having so much trouble before) but I spent way over 2 hours running round and round the Homestead looking for Lance who I have 0/3 with.

He was nowhere to be found until I saw your comment and did the conversation with him. Now I've actually found him, we'll see if I can record his actions though lol. Again, thank you, was going crazy.

Help! I've got every artisan/tradesman at 3/3 except the woodworker Lance. He's at 1/3 but seems to have completely disappeared from the homestead. I've completed the main storyline and he still doesn't show up. He's never at his place of work and his indicator is nowhere to be seen either. Any clues as to where or how he can be found?

Just fyi, make sure you complete all interactions on the homestead before going for this achievement. If you don't, then some characters won't appear for you to scan.

I really don't know how so many players had have problem nailing this achievment. I do it after completing all of the homestead missions and got in under two hours. Extra tip: if you scan an activity succesfully just wait for him to end his work and they go to their home, cabin etc. then just wait a little moment and they come out to start a new activity. Quaranteed to work with Norris, Big Dave, Lance, Oliver.
