You'll be pleased with what we have made the last couple of weeks
I'm confused, are you working on the game or seasons? I thought giants hired you?

Did u not use the 3 day seasons?
I have no clue if you're replying to me but just in case I'll answer. Yes I've used every option but it still feels too slow to get any good progress with a 2hr schedule, if you're able to get progress in 2hrs please share any tips as I would love to play with seasons the way it's meant to be played :smileynew:. I've played 3day seasons and set timescale to 15x and even at all that I'm lucky to get 3 harvests in before I got to get off
Sounds like Seasons isn’t for you. It’s definitely not designed to go through 3 harvests in a 2 hour time frame. You could try working more land and enjoying completing a task each 2 hours (cultivating, fertilizing, seeding, etc)

No if I had the time seasons would defiantly be for me as I love the realism it brings and I'm a fan of grindy games, season adds both but it a little too slow from most grindy games I've played in the past. Eventually I'll be able to fully play with seasons as I'll have my own ps4 allowing me to play longer than 2hrs

24 day Seasons! That was a bit too long for me, played TVTOF on hard and didn’t own enough land to need more than 6 days per season, skipped most of the winter but loved the rest of the year. I miss seasons a lot

@michael5941
U have a luxury problem! Playing for 2h daily is way more than me. If Im on a weekday is able to fill my loading wagon twice with soybeans Im happy. And during the weekend Im doing one complete harvest and sowing-sycle. Anyways I can(t) wait until seasons is ready! Loving it! (Next FS wouldnt be bought before I know what features actually in there.)

So you play less than 2hrs and you are able to make decent progress? May I ask what your setup is, as if I implemented it I could vary well do that +Some, also don't know what you mean by luxury problem.

I think seasons is not made for playing with time scale.
I played seasons, FS17, with 3 day setting (Edit: 9 day seasonlenght) and realtime.
I beginn the work in the morning, to all what shall do this day and then i set up fastspeed to the next day.
Enougt time for all to to and not stressing me.
Really relaxing game.

A luxury problem is a problem that really isnt a problem :-)

And I think u misread my post regarding progress. Filling my trailer with 12000 of soybeans twice a week isnt much of a progress, but I dont care. I enjoy playing this way anyhow. I think I have harvested my fields about 12 times (7,3acres) in total, bringing my net worth from the starting €500 000,- and up to about €700 000. Since the value of all my aquipment is almost gone :-D

I hope that with seasons you can really see the weather changes .. I mean .. there is never cloudy .. if you notice there is only a lightening of the light, the shadows are there, the materials reflect the light .. there is never cloudy as in fs17 where instead you understood that it was clouding .. it only clouds when it rains, so much that it seems that a hurricane arrives .. I hope that the seasons o a patch adjust this thing.

Please continue to post info on how you play with Seasons. I'm sure it can help others. Especially combinations of season length and game speed are of interest. We have usually not recommended to play at 1x, but at higher speeds, but if 3 day seasons at 1x works well why not.

There will be a lot of changes to weather in the new version of Seasons. And I can promise a lot more variation than vanilla :) It will still be possible to make custom GEOs for your own preference. I'lll write a tutorial later on how a weather.xml can be put together based on freely available weather data.
