The missions change depending on what season you are in. But understandably all the fields need fertilizing, cultivating, plowing etc. so there tend to be a lot of missions with one chore to do at the same time. Since all the farms follow the same calendar I don’t see how this can be much different. As for the loan, I agree.. you can change the interest-rate by editing the xml, so that’s one way around it.
Especially the first year there is a lot of waiting. But how would you like the, to change this? After fertilizing, cultivating and seeding, what else can you do but wait for your crops to grow?

Hi,

We are playing with the seasons Mods on our Server, but unfourtnaly my fields are "Withered"... The Seasonslenght is 6 Days...

i have planted my wheat on the 4th Day in Spring and my Maize on the 1st Day of Summer... now we are in the Time to Harvest/Making Chaff and everything is withered...

The Temperatur was at seeding above the required Temperatur and also there was a good temperatur above the Summer... I also spray the Field against Weed...

What was my fault? When i'm looking also on the Fields of the NPC.. there are also many fields that are withered...

Map is Geiselsberg... An Issue of the Map, that isn't Seasonsready yet?
If the soil moisture is too low then you can end up with drought, that leaves the harvested state I think.

This is my first time playing seasons and I have some observations. I like the flavor of seasons, but I feel like I spend a lot of time waiting around.
...
Am I missing something? I feel like I need to cheat in about 5 million to keep the game interesting, otherwise its 3/4 spraying and 1/4 stuff I like to do.
With Seasons you need to add extra activities to your game play during summer and winter seasons, such as irrigation, contracting, bee keeping, orchards, production facilities, horse training, foresting, and so on. All the stuff one tends to forget about without the Seasons mod. Fortunately, there are many exciting mods to try out.

Ah okay, so then the Maize/Wheat will be growing, but after this it will be "Withered"?

If you plant outside of the ideal temperature it will not germinate or wither depending on the temperature. If you plant and the crop grows a stage, then get a cold spell so the temperature drops below the threshold it might wither some or all of your crop.

There are some issues with the current version tho. Somehow the default growth was not completely disabled so you can get some weird growth cycles before seasons is updated. RM is working on the update and will issue it as soon as they can.
Until then make sure you are within the right temp for whatever crop you’re planting and look ahead in the forecast to see if there are any periods it gets significantly colder, if so maybe you should wait before planting if possible. Part of what seasons bring is this uncertainty and possibility of a failed crop, so you need to plan ahead.

My game freezes at 24:00 with seasons mod. If I uncheck the mod the game goes past 24:00. I have no other mods in this test. I'm playing the stock map Ravenport.

Then maybe something wrong with the map you are on, unless it’s one of the base game maps?!

For contracts, the fields should be staggered on when they go into and out of each stage in the game. For the overall boredom factor, the fast forward needs to go higher than 120 and you should be able to sleep at anytime.

Really, what Seasons needs is a resource pool like Stardew Valley where you only have so much energy per day with a palacable (bunk house) that gives you more energy to work with and some credit/tax for doing short/long days. The main issue is that with the time acceleration button, players are never really balancing the time resource, so they can basically stop time to do everything they want in basically one day and then accelerate through the boredom portions of the game. I know some people play on a given speed and leave it that way, but that also doesn't seem quite right to me either because IRL, I'd work 40 hour weeks in the winter and summer, while working 84+ hour weeks in the spring and fall, basically working long hours and then recuperating later in the year.

I know it was briefly discussed earlier, and that it was a deliberate choice, but I would also like to see the skip night function from FS17 Seasons return. In addition to IseOlen's point below, which I wholeheartedly support, I also occationally run into the dreaded "You are not tired" message after sunset.

If it is a simple code, I for one would be very happy to have it back :) .

"Sunrise" is moving time in Seasons. Inbuilt function does not let me get up at sunrise but I have to calculate every time and even then it's "closest hour".
So Giants solution is similar but worse.
I wouldn't mind if it was just a change from "how many hours to sleep" to become "when to wake up" because the in-game purpose of sleep isn't to rest for X hours but to run the midnight/day change porcesses and start the next day.

I have a question about weeds. I did a preempt spray after I seeded and I'm still getting weeds. What am I doing wrong?
Probably nothing. There are some reports like this so we are looking into it.

Pretty sure this is related to one of the bugs we have fixed.

Also related to a bug where the default vanilla growth is not completely turned off. We are aware of it and it is fixed for the next update.

Will the mod still recognize the previous crop in the field? Or if I have them just plowed will it set them to fallow? I feel like that might be useful for starting rotations.
The mod remembers the two previously harvested crops. Ploughing does not affect fallow. Only not harvesting for a year does.

I have no other advise than to play at 5x of 15x speed. 15x and 6 day season should give you plenty to do if you have some fields. Otherwise this mod is perhaps not for you.

No biggie, this isn't really a huge complaint as I understand that this is a personal taste. I'd really like to find a mod that lets me advance time at around 600x instead of a max of 120x or go to sleep whenever I want for however long I want instead of being limited to post 19:00. I think that would fix most of the time issues for me.

There is a mod letting you speed up to 6000x. Maybe the xml can be modified to do 600x instead.
