@ Rahkin,

there is a question I always wanted to ask. The Seasons to start from Spring was it on purpose or just happened? Because normally every season starts from Autumn ; school year, football ( soccer) , Champions League etc.

If you start in automn but have nothing to harvest (because you didn`t plant anything in spring), you would nearly have a half year where you can`t do anything.

Not to mention that farmers start their year by putting crops into the ground in spring (before bashing starts, yes there are deviations). You might say that their calendar have existed a bit longer than Champions League. :D :D

Yes, they dropped the skip night function, as sleeping is included in the base game now. Problem being, of course, that you can't sleep before 1900, and it will get dark before that in winter.
The start time is either adjusted by seasons or is map dependent because Ive been able to go to sleep earlier than 1900 on shorter days
We've adjusted the times at which you can sleep depending on the time of year yes
That is great news. I haven't experienced winter since the updated version :).

I have to disagree ... farmers (typically) end their year at harvest, which in temperate zones is late summer/autumn, so the start of the year is just after that in autumn/winter: ploughing and cultivating and these days autumn drilling for the "winter" crops, so probably every farm ever sold (in the UK) actually changes hands in October/November when the fields are in a "just harvested" state.

From a new game/new farm perspective it means that the first year is a panic to get everything cultivated and sown in spring, with consequently late harvest and a similar but less panic next year.

I have a question. Just started a new game and it was snowing !!
Is that normal? From day 1?
Is it because the weather in Seasons 19 is very unpredictable and you never know what will happen?

Has anyone has snow from first day ?

The alternative is starting in the winter when you can't do anything. So spring is fine as is.

Sure! You start in early spring. Temps are still cold so snow can happen. Every savegame has different weather.

Just encountered Snow in Day 2 of Summer on the Lone Oak Map with the Montana GEO. I never thought I'd see snow in Summer. In fact so far summer temperatures have been way lower then Spring. Looking on the Forecast Screen Autumn gets warmer then Summer, but is going to be wet for more days then dry, which could make harvest a nightmare. Unfortunately the weather forecast doesn't extend far enough for me to see the winter prediction.

Hi guys,

awesome mod. I would no longer play without it :)

I have an issue on the Old Stream Farm map. The trees that I plant are not growing after many days (over 15 days so far). I found this in a posting you guys did on August 2nd, saying that it would be fixed in the next release. However, since they are no versioning in the posting, I do not know if the bug is already in the current release or will be in the next one.

Here is the thread:

viewtopic.php?f=963&t=150107

Here is the entry that I am talking about ... It was written down by "The Seb"

These are the things we have already fixed and will be in the next update.

first set of fixes:
...
- Fix tree growth time. [#196]


So question is. Is the fix already in and I have another bug, or it should be resolved in the next patch? Any logs gathering or tests I should do?

Thanks!
