My son said the same thing. "Dad that's a lot of hours on one save are you feeling ok?" That was the first map I played and was learning as I went along. For the first week I let the game run at 1X and ran it true time to my real time. So when it got too dark I would let it run through the night and wake up next morning and continue where I left off. That actually got a little too much like work because I'd wake up in the middle of the night and think of something I wanted to do and get up and farm some more. Sometimes I'd put in a 10 hour day on the farm usually no less than 8 for about 2 1/2 months. I was waiting for a job to start so I had the time. If I had lag in the game I didn't notice because it's really the first time playing video games. I was so much in awe of the guys that can make everything look and sound so real. I actually am still amazed at the realism of this game. When my first round bale went rolling down the hill I called my wife in to see it roll. That's why you will never hear me complain about this mod or that because I can't even begin to understand how these guys do it.
