Old Faithful

Survive 3 Volcanic eruptions in a single mission

Most islands have a volcano. Volcanic eruptions happen randomly and won't kill you, you just have to see three of them in one mission to get the achievement.

On the challenge mission where ye are stranded I had 2 go on me, but the game freezes on me now and again on xbox360 so I didn't have a save file.

I have been playing the same save game for 3 days solid and i have only seen 2 eruptions. I am quite bored with this achievement now, also it's got to a stage in the game now where i can't export and all the garages have no workers and i can't hire any or get any immigrants to come to my island, so i am constantly in debt. I think the programmers of this game have either a sick sense of humour or they truly ran out of ideas.

This one was kinda glitchy for me, but ended out working. It didn't chime as achieved for me until a few years after my third volcano was finished.

Also, if you save often enough you can reload before a disaster and through repetition and patience force the game to give you an eruption instead of something else. Commodity price decreases seem to count as a disaster as well, so if you see one of those pop up you can reload.

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).
