Wow, these new Seasons features truly sound incredible! Nothing against Giants at all, but in light of these improvements it almost makes the core game feel incomplete.

Much respect to everyone who is making this happen.

Before Christmas might be a decent first guess lol
I assume people don't use Seasons, unless they say otherwise.

One question about crop rotation:
How is this in multifruit maps?
Are some/most/all of them also in the seasons mod, or can we add rhem easy as example in a xml file rye is as wheat, tobacco as sunflowers, carrots as sugarbeer, ...
Or must these multifruits addet in each file where other fruits are?

Crops in rotation are taken into account. There are so far two effects of crop rotation.
1) Crop history will have a yield effect when harvesting the current crop. The yield multiplier is shown in an ingame crop rotation planner
2) When planting a crop where the last crop was beneficial you will get one fertilization level for "free"

This all means different preceeding crops have different effect. The crop types in the game are categorised (e.g. cereals, legumes, oilseeds etc). So it is for instance beneficial to have a oilseed crop (e.g. canola) before a cereal crop (e.g. wheat). Whilst it is not good to have potatoes before wheat.

In addition every crop has different characteristics to how often it should planted. Some crops are better suited for monoculture (meaning same crop every year) than others. For instance of the cereals, corn is better to grow several years in a row than wheat.

While this might all sound a bit complex, the ingame crop rotation planner will make it easy to to understand how to set up beneficial rotations.

Oilseed radish is currently not part of the rotations, but vanilla mechanics of applying one fertilization level when cultivating radish still applies.


This sounds awesome, thanks!!

I have created a custom map with two custom crops (and more for me soon) - will these be able to be incorporated in the rotation system fairly easily??
