An Extraordinary Man
|Complete the Encyclopedia of the Common Man.|
You must analyze all inhabitants of the Homestead. Press and go to your logbook. In Building The Homestead, you will see your stats. You must complete Homestead missions to recruit all of the inhabitants. There are quite a few and this will take a very long time. If you aren't seeing Homestead missions, try progressing in the game a little bit farther. To analyze them, hold with the target on them. If they are not doing an activity to be recorded, it will say "invalid target". If they are, it will be recorded. Check the guide below for more specific details. Each character does a variety of tasks related to their work. You need to witness/record multiple different tasks for each. The tracking on this is a bit buggy. Check the guide below for more information and remember, patience is a virtue. You will have to do some serious stalking to witness everything you need.
This achievement has been patched and is no longer an issue. If you were a victim of the glitch, you can now download the patch and when the game starts up, you will get your achievement.

Basically.. the animation designers put that much detail in the game they want you too see atleast 75% of the overloaded animations.
Example: watch a butcher sting up a pig, cut it open, remove the useful meat, cut that meat up, trim it, pack, it.. put it on his stall then dispose of the pig.
This would take about 3-5 minutes.. but that is only one example of how in depth the world really is now :)
Keep your eyes peeled!

Glitched for me. It keeps telling me I have the woodworker completed when I don't and won't allow me to get any more entries for him. This is post-patch too. Ubisoft, sigh.

Anybody got a list of what these activities are? What are you supposed to press when you see them?
|Comment #5 by WaPaKaLyPs3|
Thursday, November 01, 2012 @ 03:11:28 PM
Their activities are pretty much what they are doing related to their title (ex. woodcutters cutting wood) You can scan them with the LT button. First, look at them with eagle sense. If they are gold it means you can scan them. If they are blue then you can not.

List so far
Blacksmith (big Dave)
Farmer (prudence & warren)
And lumberjacks? Or are they woodworkers I'm not sure but I've done all them and no achievement

Friday, November 02, 2012 @ 10:38:31 AM
Blacksmith (big Dave)
Farmer (prudence & warren)
lumberers (Godfrey & terry)
When a person is fully researched, when pressing LT it will say in the top right
Entry already complete for this worker
And if it is not complete but you are re scanning the same task it will say
Activity already spanned or something
So then you will know which you have or have not done
You could check
Animus database> items> encyclopaedia of the common man>
And it only lists ones you have done

Saturday, November 03, 2012 @ 12:23:15 PM
^^^ I know
I got the achievement but the logbook on the map menu says I need to scan the woodworker 1 more time
I think it is because sometimes lance helps Godfrey or terry and although they are doing a lumberers job if you scan lance then it messes up
We should all contact ubi about this

Everyone that is having trouble getting the achievement I got the 2/3 woodcutter thing and thought I did something wrong but I turned off the hacks they give you for finding pivots and it gave me the achievement yer it put me heaps far back cause the game doesn't save with the hacks on but it gave me the achievement hope this helps

3/3 on them all, but no achievement. :( I noticed something weird when I scanned the farmer and I got credited with two scans, so I only had to scan two things for 3/3, now it did not get recorded and get sent to the log book like everything else, so no achievement..
|Comment #27 by Saracin|
Monday, November 05, 2012 @ 08:46:30 PM
Make sure that it says that the Entry is complete below the spot where it tracks how many you've seen. I was at 3/3 for Lumberers, but because it didn't have it below I checked up there again. After seeing Catherine(CA) churning butter, I got it.
Also in some cases you will need to do quests to unlock more actions, like for Dave and Ellen.

Now I'm showing as having 3/3 for every worker but for some reason the farmers won't show up in the encyclopedia of man at the manor. I've scanned at least 8 or 9 different activies for them and it still won't update. It shows me as having 3/3 for evey worker but no achievement.

Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 12:06:40 PM

What I noticed was that if you leave the area of the worker you are trying to scan until you can't see them on your map and then come right back, they will most likely be doing something different. I did this multiple times with each worker and got 3/3 for them all in no time. The farmers say 3/3 for me but still won't show up in the book at the manor.

I have all 3 scans for all people but no achievement, hope it won't effect the completionist achievement. There is some dubious stat logging on this game. The Aquila is only 2% upgraded apparently and I have bought everything possible and completed all missions. ubisoft still justifying its other name.....bugysoft. Good game though otherwise, just bad for us achievement whores

Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 01:52:21 PM
I found a great video that helped me out a bit, note that this is not mine, but it's so damn helpful I'll help this guy get more views:
My advice is that earlier in the day is when people were most active for me, if they keep repeating the same thing go to a different character and come back in 4-5 minutes.
The one person I had problems with was the miner, but once I did find him working I got all 3 within about 5 minutes.
Also, each character (or couple) have more than 3 activities you can record.
|Comment #48 by silverkngt101|
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 02:29:21 PM
Ok, finally got this one. Gotta say I felt a little wrong but I had to stalk the characters like deers during the game's daytime cycle and hide in the brush or get out of their line of sight so they would do a different activity. You gotta find the people and not depend on the map icon to appear.

Despite scanning him whilst he's;
1. Inspecting Wheelbarrow/Doors/Fencing
2. Sanding Wood
3. Messing with his Chair
I've also scanned him whilst he is shaving a small piece of wood right outside his front door, but he's blue when you switch into Eagle Vision whilst he's doing this!? How do you get this achievement!?

I got it from rescanning the lumberers chopping wood, which was the thig i scannd the for first so my uess is that while it recorded it it didnt "count" it. a my advice is just rescan the activities of the one giving you trouble.

LUMBERERS: Chopping wood, loading/unloading cart by the inn, churning butter. two are done near their homes.
HUNTRESS: Cleaning gun, cooking kill, in tree stand. all near her home.
TAILOR: making a suit, making chair, making quilt. all done near home.
INNKEEPER: smashing grapes, cooking, and something the guy does on the table behind the inn. all done behind inn.
WOODWORKER: making a chair outside home, measuring stuff by the inn, fixing something in the mine(wait till he leaves and you can get it then.

Lance and Norris are the only ones stuck for me. Lance is glitched where it says 2/3 but also says I've completed all challenges. I can't get him to do any other animations other than picking up the dumb chair and sanding the plank. As for the miner, he got stuck while putting up a lantern and wont walk away whether it's day or night. Thanks ubisoft. I you're going to put an achievement in to show off how much development you put into your game at least make sure the damn thing isn't glitched.
|Comment #61 by RCone138|
Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 08:39:22 PM
also be nice if there was some button or sequence you could hit to change what animation they were doing. or if there was a way to change between night and day instead of wasting your time just waiting. cant use he animus hack or you'll disable achievements. all they had to do was just do something like let you go to your bed in the manor and sleep till morning and let it take 5 seconds in a loading screen to change from night to day.

Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 10:09:17 PM
So, like many of you, I experienced the glitch on this mission that prevented the achievement from unlocking. I grew tired of waiting for a patch and decided to replay the majority of the game for another shot at this achievement. (Either dedication or too much free time, I know) Anyhow, while rushing through this game again I realized how unfair this was and decided the right thing to do would be share my progress so we don't ALL have to replay the game. So I have uploaded a save file (link below) in which every artisan is completed and updated in the logbook except for the Blacksmith, Big Dave (Da), who is 2/3. All you have to do is inject this save file as a secondary playthrough and scan the blacksmith performing one more action and the achievement will unlock. This is for anyone who w
|Comment #67 by David Do0M|
Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 10:10:22 PM
This is for anyone who wishes to take this route. If this route is not for you, I respect that. I just know how frustrating it is to be 100% complete but still missing this achievement due to a glitch.
This save file was purely for the achievement and nothing else, I ignored all side missions, liberations, collectables, optional objectives, viewpoints, clubs. I did nothing but main missions and homestead missions. You don't want to replace your save with this. Merely use it as a secondary to get this achievement.
NOTE: PLEASE READ!! If you do not know how to properly inject a save file using Horizon, Modio or whatever you prefer, PLEASE search either Google or YouTube for instructions first. I don't want anyone to accidentally overwrite their game that they spent 40-60 hours on.
|Comment #68 by David Do0M|
Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 10:12:34 PM
P.S. Blacksmith actions already scanned are: Sharpening an axe and Hammering Metal in his shop. After copying this back-up, I scanned him fixing a wagon wheel and the achievement unlocked. He also nails on horseshoes. Also, yes, I know that the woodworker glitched at 2/3 with a log entry in this save but I promise you the achievement still unlocks.
Edit: Thanks to WhatEvahDude and Dr Scruffleton for pointing out that you may have to do a few more homestead missions to get Big Dave(Da) to perform a 3rd action. Also, one homestead mission for Lance is already active, sending you to Boston for his tools.
I hope this helps.

On another note, To those that think scanning Warren is what causes the farmer glitch, I scanned both Warren and Prudence in the above save file and it did not glitch. I think it is safe to say Warren is not what causes the glitch.

Ok I'm having just a hell of a time with this one! I can't find the huntress anywhere and when I try to scan the minor non of his actions work and on top of it all it seems that everybody else has just decided to not even come out of their homes! Nothing even pops up on these indicating that they're out and about? Does anybody know how to get the homesteaders to appear!
|Comment #80 by JeffMomm|
Monday, November 12, 2012 @ 04:59:07 PM
#78 - I usually go to the map and down to my logbook. There's a homestead section under there that lists each person and how many actions you've seen.
@79 - The huntress is way up North - just follow the main road pretty much as North as you can go. The miner was the toughest one for me as well, but finally got him with the woodworker, panning for gold and then actually mining. I had that happen too where no one was out, but I just ran around in the main area and people started showing up on the map. It also depends what time of day it is, since they do go to their homes for sleep at night. Hope that helps.

My woodworker is still stuck on 2/3 but I just scanned the last entry for the miner and the achievement unlocked! I hope this helps everybody!

hell of an achievement, mucho glitch.
I searched a lot on the internet and nobody seems to have the same glitch as me. I am very near my 100% completion and this is the only thing remaining besides replaying some of the main missions.
My woodworker and the doctor are nowhere to be found. They litteraly disapeared of the map. I've runed in circles, waited for hours, teleported to other cities, came back...still no sign of them anywhere. Does anyone have an idea about that?

Ubisoft finally contacted me back saying that the info has been passed on the the appropriate people and they are looking into the farmers 3/3 glitch. They also said they do not know if or when there will be a patch for this problem. Anyone figure out how to fix the farmers 3/3 yet?

All of my entries say 3/3 but I didn't get the achievement...wtf! The miner was the last one I had to do b/c I couldn't get his last action which I know now is panning for gold or something like that. Whatever..just wasted my time for nothing, awesome.

Same thing problem as FrankRenegade29. My woodworker and Doctor are missing. I checked back many times while completing the game but still not there. All I have left is the doctor scan and it's at 2/3. I saw nothing in the patch about this, I hope it get's fixed.

Just got this! Farmers and Woodworker are at [2/3], but both show entry completed. Log updated in the Manor,
All I can suggest is to keep scanning the ones that are not registered as completed. Don't worry so much about how many tasks are recorded.

glitch fixed for me
i had problem with LUMBERERS i had finished 3/3
but LUMBERERS entry completed. log updated in the manor didn't show up
i found another activity and scanned then it worked
now if you have similar problem try to find another activity then scan it(this three old activitys that i scanned didn't work you have to find another one).
LUMBERERS have 5 activity
i hope this works for you too
sorry for bad English :D

I was having the issue where the WOODWORKER was at [2/3] but also said it was complete. The FARMERS were also at [3/3] but said they were not complete. I tried all sorts of combos of scanning from the internet and nothing was working.
However, the "thanksgiving" patch that has been mentioned was released today.
Once downloaded the log said that the WOODWORKER was [3/3] and complete, however the FARMERS were still not "complete" even though I had scanned three actions. I just waited for them to do an action I hadn't previously scanned and the achievement popper and the "complete" message came up.
Still appears in my logbook though even though all goals are now completed.

Does anyone know if this was fixed with the latest patch?
I thought it was supposed to be but mine is still glitched. I still have 3/3 for the farmers but the entry log won't complete. I've also scanned about 6 or 7 activities with the farmers and every time it tells me activity scanned 3/3 but the log won't complete. At this point I have been unable to find any new activities with them that I haven't already scanned.

Fuck this achievement. I've spent 3 days with only one action of Norris to find for full completion and it's just to the point of plain ol fuckin stupid.
He's always doing the two damn same things. If not, he's either downtown which doesn't count for him or having his bitch over for a hugout. Then she leaves and he does some awesomely useless wood widdlin or sweeping.
Sometimes he's just standing outside the shack outside the mine. You know, what most people do... just stand in one spot and stare forward. Absolutely swell. Well done Ubi.
I've spent so much time traveling, waiting, and being patient. After attempting once more this morning and getting the same shit, I'm done. I'm selling this game tomorrow.

So supposedly it's fixed, but in my case, with the farmer glitch, I can't register a new activity because I've already scanned all the farmers and for everyone else it says the log entry is already completed.
I'm assuming I probably just need to start all over now that it has been patched. Has anyone else been in my shoes and found a resolution?

@105 I'm having the same problem. I've already scanned all the farmers activities before the patch and every time I re-scan their activities, it tells me that it was already scanned and I don't get the achievement. It's really irritating. I even scanned windmill activity.
|Comment #109 by Rob 121|
Saturday, November 24, 2012 @ 12:58:06 PM
@108 You actually inadvertently solved my problem. I didn't know there was windmill activity so I went straight to the windmill (from the south, to avoid making Walter and prudence appear at the farm) and scanned Walter and the achievement popped. Thanks!
So it looks like the glitch has been fixed so long as you have any activities left to scan. Glad that is over with.

Sorry it took some time to get back on that one. But for some reason my problem got solved by itself. It was pre-last patch too, I don't know if they worked the issue in the last update. Anyway, I was frustrated with this, so I decided to use every means of transportation to get in the homestead. I used fast travel to everypoints, used the boats, came back from every cities, came back from the frontier on foot too. Eventualy, they just came back as if nothing happened! Doing theire woodworking and people healing.
While I was coming and going though I did notice their icons traveling at speed light trough the map couple of times. I think they were just glitched in the environment or something and my teleporting eventualy reset them at the right place... Just a theory though.

if people are having trouble trying to get the characters to things so you can scan them try going to your crafting book and selling all your stuff that they made , mine , or what ever else so that they have to go and work again.
Example people complaining about the miner only doing 2 things try sellin all the stuff he has mined so that he has to go work again. samthing for the farmer and the hunter etc etc.
Thats how i got my achievo

Its not glitched you just have to see each person doing 3 diffrent things. Some you can follow and do in all in a row but some i believe u have to see them at certain times of the day to see certain actions. I was stuck with blacksmith for ages on the last one. It was early in the morning when i finally seen last action. Hope this helps someone. Good luck!

If your stuck on getting this an activity, instead of stalking them just run away so they are not on the mini map and then run back to them, takes a few times but you'll catch them doing something different, I was stuck on the lumberer, did this about 7 times and got it.

I had this problem and it was getting frustrating.It turns out that the reason you cant find Lance at his house is because he is waiting to have an interactive conversation with you out behind Achilles' house. Then he waits to have another interactive conversation with you inside the tavern. Once you have done that he will start to appear by his house.

Everytime i scanned the woodworker (Lance) two times it shows me that i finished the woodworker and that i can check it in LOGBOOK. The others inhabitants have completed correctly with 3/3. I'm quite a desperate because I play the whole game again screw up all side missions except main and homestead and start with scanning after finishing all homestead missions. I think that solve my problem but it doesn't. If you have some good advices or tips how to get this bloody achievements you'll have my everlasting gratitude.

Don't know if this has been mentioned already- if one of the individuals will only do menial tasks like smoke all the time it could be that your homestead is stocked on their product. I was missing one more for lumbers and spent several hours applying tips on different forums just to come realize that they wouldn't work because I had a ton of lumber I haven't sold yet. Did that then immediately they got back to work. Just keep that in mind if you get stuck.

My problem is the Doctor. I have scanned 1 x activity (which is verified when I look in the Logbook 1 of 3 - back button menu). So I go to Animus Database>Items>Encyclopedia of the Common Man and lo-and-behold, the Doctor is NOT even listed.
He's there in the game, and I've completed all of the Doctor side-missions, yet he still only does the same activity - messing with the herb garden - and when I 'scan' with LT, I get the same message: "This activity has already been scanned."
Would appreciate any help/aid/assistance.

I don't see why everyone is complaining. They do a big variety of activities, more than listed on the guide. I had most done after 30-45 mins simply running back and forth (had to follow one of them as they were reluctant to do the third activity). When the night came i simply did a couple of pirate missions to 100%, came back visited whatsherface, norri and booyah.

Generally, I stalked them real good. Kept watching Norris, he filled the lamp, looked for gold and whatever other activity. Same for others, majority did 3 different activities within 10 mins but if they got stuck on a loop I went to finish a few missions which perhaps reset them.

I got problems with Terry and Godfrey. All they ever do is fishing, smoking or running back and forth. The activities I got are putting lumber on a convoi and splitting logs. They won' t do anything else.
OMG! Sometimes I wanna choke the people who came up with the achievements for AC 3.

@ 170 The lumberers wives also count towards this. I got my last one by watching one of the wives churn butter.

Im down to my last scan and its for Norris. Problem is he will walk into his cabin, walk back out and just stand there literally all day without doing a single activity. I managed to get 2 scans on him but he refuses to do anything now.

I waited until I had finished all of the homestead missions before attempting this.
After the patch update there should be no problem. Literally follow each person and keep scanning them.
The doctor will eventually talk to the couple with a letter or play bowls for 3rd scan.
The lumberers wife's do certain tasks that count.
The woodworker will occasionally be in the Doctors yard measuring.
