Just wanted to give you a quick Homestead Guide:


HOMESTEAD MODES
- There are two homestead modes: Analyze and Action.
- You may toggle between either mode using the icon at the top of the screen.
- Analyze mode gives the player detailed breakdowns of every action they make.
- Action mode removes detailed breakdowns to speed up gameplay, also allows character to chop down trees.


CROPS
- Crop stages: Seeds, planted-immature, planted-ripe, death.
- You must water and fertilize your crops. If their water or fertilizer levels drop below 0 they will die.
- Crops can be frozen (due to snow). You must thaw them, with an item, to perform an action with them. If they are frozen for too long they will die. If they are infected, then frozen, the freeze will kill any infection.
- Crops can be infected with bugs (during nice weather). You must spray them, with an item, to perform an action with them. If they are infected for too long they will die. If the crops are frozen before you spray them, the infection will be cleared but now you must thaw the crop.
- Harvest crops when they are ripe to receive the crop and seeds. 
Crops can grow old and die, harvest them in time. 


LIVESTOCK
- Livestock stages: Immature, Mature, Death.
- You can order livestock via the livestock ordering system or you may mate two mature (opposite gender) animals to produce young.
- All livestock require water and food to survive. Ensure that there is plenty of water in the water bucket and food in the trough. 
- Livestock is either male or female. This is important when mating and what you receive from the female animal as only females produce goods (eggs and milk). However you need males to reproduce. Mature animals must be well fed (food and water) and must be happy enough to reproduce. After the animals reproduce, there is a cooldown before they can reproduce again. The cooldown is different for males and females. 
- Immature livestock can not mate or produce any goods. They will mature in due time. The player can play with the animals to keep them happy. You can pet the animal or play with the animal. You can choose one in order to raise the animals happiness once per day. The difference between the two selections is the amount of time required to complete the action. 
- At anytime you can choose to slaughter the animal for meat (key items - attack mode toggle). Immature and mature animals yield different amounts of meat.
- Animals will die from old age.


RELATIONSHIPS
- There are 21+ dating prospects, they can be found in the pub.
- Races include: Human, Elf, Dwarf, and Orc.
- Sexualities include: Straight, Bi, Gay, Lesbian.
- Classes include: Fighter, Barbarian, Thief, Black Mage and White Mage. 
- Each prospect has their own personality and their own preferences.
- Once per day you can talk to a person to raise your relationship by 1.
- Once per day you may also give a gift to a person. Reactions may be good or bad based on the gift, the gift recipient, and the relationship level. Give carefully!
- You must raise your relationship high enough (you must fit the prospects preference) so that you can first get engaged (relationship level 100+) then married (relationship level 200+). 
- Once you are married your spouse will move into your house. 
Your spouse will travel with you on your adventures in homestead mode.


HOMESTEAD UPGRADES
- You may upgrade your homestead, garden, and barn with the appropriate materials. 
- Homestead upgrade: Bigger homestead, comes complete with a crafting table and alchemy crafting station.
- Crop upgrade: Crop number increase from 4 to 6.
- Barn Upgrade: Livestock number increase from 4 to 6.


HOMESTEAD TIPS
- You must sleep in Homestead mode! 
- You will begin to get tired at 10:00pm, go back home to sleep. 
- You will faint where you stand after 12:00am. The longer you wait, the greater the chance you will faint. 
- When you faint you will receive the “Homestead sleepy” state.
- When affected by the Homestead sleepy state, all actions will take longer to complete, therefore, you will be less productive. You may use an item or take a nap to remove this state.

@Freank No not yet. I believe my game already works with controllers. What would that add?

Thanks so much. I am glad you are enjoying the game. I am working on a massive update that will greatly improve the story. Which character are you referring to? Or do you mean it all?

Hey dude, I think I may have hit a little bug near the start of the game. When I get control of the player in her home town and I'm supposed to meet Gordo behind the council house. If I simply go home and go to sleep the game triggers a cutscene with mom giving sweets and Shin speaks in it, even though he's not part of the party.

Nice catch!

The only reason I can see this happening is if you played as Shinata in homestead mode and leveled up past level 4 before you started the main RPG. Am I right? What do you mean Shin speaks in it?

In the next huge update I am separating homestead and main RPG levels which would prevent this from happening. I am creating a new intro a straightening the main RPG timeline, etc.

Nope straight from the start of the game. I didn't find homstead till later. I just played out the intro, went to the town, met gordo and when he told me meet him behind the council house I went to bed instead. When the cutscene plays Shinata and her mum are talking and Shin says something along the lines of "i'll look after her". I hadn't him in my party at that stage as I never tried to leave town and he wasn't in the house so it seemed kind of strange.

I'm pretty sure I was level 4 but I reached that just playing the intro.

Game is great so far btw. I actually haven't really done anything with the story as theres so much exploring and sidequests to do.

Yeah, I thought of that right after I sent the message lol. I was like hmmm prob got to level 5 or so just playing the intro.

The new updates will prevent that cutscene from happening. The scene with mom was meant to happen after you spoke to gordo and got shin on the team. No worries though, great catch, I appreciate it.

Thanks, I am glad you are enjoying the game. I look forward to feedback, constructive criticism, bug/glitch discovers, etc. Feel free to let me know what you are thinking anytime lol. Enjoy.

No water this time, just trying for a majestic cliffside... The cave snuck in because I liked it. Now I guess I need a mini cave map or "secret" for it. :kaoswt:
Revamped the crew for my VN about thirty times. Only character that's stayed constant has been the fungus character. Guess it really grew on me...
I want to work on my reboot, but I don't have time to do it. ;_;
