New Additions

  • Added clothing shop – Violet is the new shopkeeper in town and she will sell you loads of new clothing from top to bottom. Violet is the first shopkeeper to be able to have discounts on certain products during the year, maybe waiting for a sale?
  • Added clothing for the player that can be purchased at clothing shop.
  • Added bees, you can now purchase bee hives from Tom the old farmer at the marketplace.
    Bee hives will be located within the farm, right next door to the chicken coop. They will have their own patch ready for when you purchase the hives.
    Bees produce honey everyday except in winter as they like to keep their honey to themselves during this season. “Get behind a fellow, black and yellow”
  • Added birds, birds will fly away from you when you’re too close. They’ll land on wooden fences, house tops and tree branchs.
  • Added frame rate pacing due to frame rate dropping when no frames needed to be updated on the clients screen. This will improve majority of animations that didn’t sync due to a frame rate spike.
  • Added honey to the inventory system, this can be located in the inventory through Animal Care > Animal Items > Farm Produce. This also splits the animal section into two animal produces Milk, Wool, Egg and Manure then other Honey.
  • Added floating icons above all shop keepers so you can identify the shop keeper upon entering.
  • Added option to change the alarm clock to midnight. So you can walk in the dark, see the night light up and visit shops during the early morning.
  • Added audio and more information to when there is an event taking place and trying to enter a building which is closed.
  • Added rotatable character model on character customization menu.

Improvements

  • Changed in-game time from 6 am to 9 am when finishing the tutorial. This should allow you shop on the first day and enter majority of the buildings.
  • Changed in-game timer to be extended for a longer period. PC: from 12 to 15 minutes / Mobile: from 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Changed corn field within the marketplace area, so that the player no longer clips through the corn.
  • Changed old farmer to Tomwares which is now open from 8 am till 4 pm. Tom will sell all buildings for your farm.
  • Changed map to reflect the changes to the farm and other parts of the town.
  • Changed controller dead-zone area. This will make it better for controlling the player if you’re using an old controller.
  • Changed pickaxe effectiveness when mining ore from 1/2/5/10 to 1/3/5/10.
