Howdy, y’all! April showers are here, and with them come another community update–so let’s get right to it!
What We’re Doing
As we’ve said before, our devs have been working on a ton of fixes, and we’re almost ready to bring them to you! Here are some of the things you can expect in the next build update:
– Added mouse functionality; left and right mouse buttons as primary and secondary actions
– Locked 3×3 plots when planting seeds; now you don’t need to stand in the exact center of a 3×3 plot to plant!
– Player can now sleep/save without having to go inside the bed; player can stand beside bed and interact with it to bring up the save menu
– New farmland layout for UX improvement
– Adjusted cursor visibility cooldown
– Updated land hover visuals
– Removed re-carry on items after they are thrown
– Updated seed and crop prices for Year 1 crops and saplings
– Updated seed descriptions; you can now view how long it takes a seed to grow and how much it will cost
And here are some of the things we’re still perfecting:
– Better controls introduction to eliminate “guessing” of controls at the start of the game
– Default control sets for: Mouse & Keyboard, Keyboard, Controller
– Shipping Bin tells how much you’re going to earn with the current contents of your bin
