Marvelous AQL made the Bokujo Monogatari series, localized in the west as Harvest Moon until Bokujo Monogatari: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi, which will be published by XSeed games as Story of Seasons.

Natsume owns the name Harvest Moon and made Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, which is unrelated to Bokujou Monogatari.

Forbidden Magna has been released in North America, Europe, and Australia as "Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven".

Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Return to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale is scheduled to be released in North America in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Story Of Seasons's EU was released on 31st December, 2015.

She's the weathergirl for a major channel. Where do you get 14-year old weathergirls?

Apparently, she's studying meteorology on some school alongside her job as an idol/weathergirl, so what are you on about?
>>
Tbh I just really like Lillie cause she's cute and almost spills as much spaghetti as forte.
>>
>>127057227
Both Iris and Kamil have very flat characters (in my opinion..). It's not as if there's a dearth of things to give them character, either, there's just nothing there. Kamil is especially egregious because he was already in a game before, but he retains barely any of that personality other than his florist shtick. Agate at least is charismatic and has likable qualities
>>
>>127058265
>problematic

Also I hope everyone else thinks jschreier's post is full of bullshit. I hope.
>>
>>127058859

She's the spaghetti queen.

I should assert that there's no loli-bait in SoS. Only shota-bait, and that's Mistel.

Lillie's pretty stacked. At least behind Licorice and ahead of Angela and Agate in the rankings.
>>
>>127058265

Made the thread before reading about loli Lillie. Sorry about that.
>>
>>127058556
I wasn't saying she was 14, I was saying she LOOKS 14. That's a turn-off for me, so I'd rank her as the worst wiafu, because I'd feel weird about her appearance if I pursued her. Obviously, >>127058265 the guy in this pic is stupid as fuck, because that's obviously a grown woman, not a loli.

I didn't mean to trigger so many autists, so I'll stop posting about this now so the thread doesn't get derailed.
>>
>>127059630
>posting about HM is derailing
Nah dude, keep it up. Controversy leads to discussion or being made fun of and that leads to the thread being alive. Waifuposting is always going to lead to this kind of stuff.

Also, Angela is worst waifu by far. Not just because of her glasses either, but she's also boring. Being coyly lewd isn't enough to save her from being bottom-of-the-barrel.
>>
>>127060108
Are you really saying Angela is worse than iris

ay, u that bloke whos talkin shit about my waifu the afore thread?

ya gunna say dat tu my face bruh. gonna bash ur fookin head in m8. hook u in da gabber i will, sware on me mum
>>
>>127060592
I trust Iris the least of all the villagers. Her and her brother are both snakes, I place trash in front of the Antique Shop whenever I'm in town and they can't do shit about it because the game doesn't count it as littering
>>
>>127060563

Well, Iris is stringing you along because of trust issues.. She admits it in one of her events. Obviously, you need to fight back by rejecting her advances.
>>
>>127059630
The guy in the post in that pic is also full of shit because he thinks sexy = objectification. I think xseeddude once made a post explaining why sexualization isn't always sexist.

ANYWAY, best SoS waifu is either Elise or Iris to me.
>>
>>127060108
I'd prefer a slow thread full of good discussion/content as opposed to a fast thread full of shitposting.

To spark some discussion/wiafufagging, who's your all time favorite wiafu/husbando from any bokumo game? For me, it's pic related. I found her optimism really endearing. It's the simplest wiafus that have the most charm.

>I wasn't saying she was 14, I was saying she LOOKS 14. That's a turn-off for me, so I'd rank her as the worst wiafu
I understand and respect that(hell i feel the same way about amber in rf4), but I don't get singling out Lillie for it.
>>
>>127061136
Yeah, there's a lot of truth to that. A character can be a sexual woman without it being a sexist portrayal. It's all in the execution of it. I think a lot of 'feminists' just think sex is bad for whatever personal reason, and just leap on anything with sexual themes and brand it 'problematic'.

>>127061279
I dunno, maybe I'm just weird, but she looks very young to me. I feel the same way about Mistel and Lumina from AWL:SE. There's probably other instances of this in HM, but that's all I've played recently so that's all that comes to mind.
>>
>>127061948
SJWs and the like are just like Puritans -- sexy is bad to them, but for different reasons. To Puritans, it's because lust is a sin. To SJWs and the like, it's because lust is "problematic."
>>
>>127061279
Oh shit, you can court a loli and have her bear your children in SoS?

How do I get Veronica and Fritz to stop opening my gate and letting my animals out? They're doing this shit on purpose.
>>
>>127068120
Changing where the gate is. That's the only way as far as I know. Then they'll just walk into the fence for an hour.
I never really had a problem with the animals getting out though. It really doesn't do them much good anyway, and until you get a dog to train its a pain as well
>>
>>127068120
I got rid of the gate entirely, and just fenced the whole thing in. Animals can't get out, and it doesn't stop me or the dogs from handling the livestock.

What the hell is the deal with the cooking festival in SOS? Is it based on complexity not star rank?
>>
>>127069503
The fall Cooking Exhibit where you can cook a 6 piece meal if you want? It's the star rank, and the difficulty is weighted depending upon the year you're in.
>>
>>127069985
It's probably that I'm in a later year, then... I have terrible luck and have passed out on both year 1 and 2 cooking festivals (this was before I learned my lesson of saving every day)
>>
>>127070438

Theme is important if you're going the full course route. Western theme gets the least bonus while exotic the greatest.

You have greater chances in the single dish contest, but you increase a rank on 6 dish types in full course.

>>
>>127073576
I literally only talked to Elise (waifu), Dessie (to give offerings to get shit), and whomever I needed to conduct business with on that day by the end of the game.

Didn't see much point to befriending the others.
>>
>>127073372
If you make Elise really mad, does she try to headbutt you?
>>
>>127074305

You naturally befriend them when you attend festivals. Even bachelorettes increase their flower levels even though you give them gifts rarely, as long as you're never absent in a festival (Elise is at red flower, only gave her gifts once a year).

The real bitch to befriend are the Harvest Sprites. Dessie and Witche are ok, but these fuckers are hard to see in an area, and don't appear on the map. I only manage to talk to Torque and that fat one since they're on the way when I make my rounds, but that hick girl, the hot blodded one and the red one are hard to pinpoint.
>>
>>127074305
There's usually a small prize for befriending certain villagers, such as patterns, recipes, events, etc.

All of your farming rivals have events, plus a few random villagers do. You always get slightly better dialogue too, which doesn't mean much but whatever.
>>
>>127058265
>>127061948
>>127063275
I think that Kotaku guy is projecting -- he says that the character is designed to appeal to lolicon and draw focus on the boobs to the point where her character doesn't matter. and that jiggle physics "demeaning and embarrassing." I think that's just how he sees her. Which means he could be pretty messed up in the head and thinks sexuality is shameful.

>>127073576
So you're saying they say the same crap over and over, and if you don't talk to them, it's "hey we haven't talked in awhile?"
>>
>>127075596
I followed them all around to see what they do, they will all stand near Witchie's house in the morning and late afternoon (6pm~), they disappear at night. If you want to catch them, run out and talk to them as soon as you wake up.

The red one will wander back and forth between Witchie's house and Piedmont if he's not by her house.

Three of them will stand in the three fields connected to Witchie's house besides Riverside Pasture.

The hot-blooded one usually stands near the river in Riverside pasture or wanders between the two fields there.
>>
>>127075596
Don't even bother talking to them. It's literally useless. Dessie and Witchie give you things for raising their FP (and Dessie gives you stuff for giving her offerings as well) but the harvest sprites don't even have special lines for when you give them their favorite item on their birthday (unlike everyone else) so it does seem like there's no point to befriending them
>>
>>127074305
You've got an extremely good taste.

I have started the Rune Factory Series just recently with RF4 and I have some questions:
1. How does fertilizer work? Do you just keep feeding it grass and weed(lol 420) and it'll increase your soil quality? Or do I have to actually get fertilizer from it and apply it to the fields? And does a fertilizer bin work for only one field or for multiple fields (like the one near your home and the others outside of town.)
2. How much square tiles do trees need to grow?
3. Does giving gifts to one person multiple times in one day decrease in effectiveness at that same day? Does giving the same gift overtime lose effectiveness gradually?
>>
>>127140096
Oh wait I just realized there was FAQ in the pastebin. My bad.
>>
>>127140096

>1
Increases star rank of crops. You buy fertilizer or make your own. You can use it on many fields as you like, though I would recommend against it since materials for it are scarce, and Otmar sells between 1-20 per day (in Original mode).

>2
1 plot per tree.

>3
You can only give gifts once a day. And no.
>>
>>127138561
In AWL and AnWL you can pimp slap your kid for talking back to your spouse, but that's about it for corporeal punishment in the series. Honestly though, hitting your kids is pretty ghetto, I don't know why you'd want that in your comfy farming simulator.

I'd recommend playing AWL/AnWL if you haven't, though, It's easily the most fleshed out child rearing system we've ever gotten in a Harvest Moon game.

Wrong game

Idk. It doesn't raise the soil level but i think it slows its decay, meaning you can grow crops consecutively without the crops taking longer to grow. But I'm probably wrong on this front. It is an automatic process however.

Trees take up one space

That and the pointless things that are added to artificially lengthen the game or stop you from progressing too quickly. Some games have a gimmick that really outstays its welcome.

I want a game where you can open a store and sell various stuff you've crafted to adventurers. Once they become stronger, they can venture into more dangerous dungeons and bring back better items to you. Something like that, anyway.

Selling stuff to military seems too large-scale, unless you can purchase land and hire and assign farmers to them. I'd totally be into it if you could make your own business empire

HM:DS Cute had a small selection of bisexual women that the female MC could woo, marry, and adopt a child with in the Japanese release of the game, instead of choosing a husband. Unfortunately, Nastume decided their American audiences would be alienated by the feature, and removed it from their translations of the game. So, it's possible that we'll get gay farmers in future games, because it's happened before. Translators working at Xseed have made promising statements that they won't censor gay relationships in future games, but I'm not digging up the link right now.

We do have some options for yuri Harvest Moon, though.

Like the other anon mentioned, in Story of Seasons and A New Beginning, there's absolutely nothing stopping you from choosing the male character and dressing yourself in long hair and dresses, once you unlock clothes customization. I can't speak for ANB as I haven't played it yet, but in SoS, the characters rarely refer to the player character in gendered terms, so it's just like you're playing as a female. But note that in Story of Seasons, it takes a while before you unlock clothing opinions other than the default. I'm in early Summer right now, and about a week away from unlocking the building you use to make clothes.

http://kataiki.tumblr.com/FOMT-TL

There's also a modded version of FoMT that changes the male sprite to the female sprite, and changes all dialogue references to the player character to female.

Make a greenhouse:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r9OY31MhgsArb4JTOvuBPwGuMB0J-UaFB7aFyL39Jes/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=0
Since you only have 30 days to fertilize a normal seasonal crop, the best you can do in a year is 3 stars. But if you can do a greenhouse, you can fertilize every day, and be done in 64 (that last 29 of the 93 days your crop is 5-star, which is all the game cares about, but you can still fertilize for whatever reason). You can go on multiplayer and hope people wand your crops. Also, you can get the mystery seeds and pray to RNGesus to give you fireflowers, which give 30 star points, or one half-star rank, to everything on your field.
CAUTION:
If your crops are all the same star rank, but different star points, when you have them in your inventory all at once the star points will average out, meaning you lose. Make sure to harvest the crops you've been fertilizing separately and make the seeds you want before combining everything in your inventory or storage.

Guys,

What is the best Harvest Moon besides Friends of Mineral Town?

I tried Story of Seasons but it's just too limiting for me in that your stamina sucks, shipping is fucked, and the grind is ridiculous to unlock some things. There are other things I don't like but I don't want to make a huge list about it.

I already know of RF4. It's very good but I want a Harvest Moon right now.

I'm between BtN, Magical Melody, and Animal Parade.

BTN is real similar to FoMT.

Animal Parade has bad loading and FPS issues.

SoS honestly gets better when you put some time into it. Stamina becomes irrelevant later on, even more so if you play seedling. You won't have to worry about shipping days either.

My problem with FoMT isn't with the gameplay. I just prefer more modern graphics. Console games/ports on GBA and GB were just way too shit looking back then.

Are there any other complaints about AP? Most of those get eliminated or reduced in emulation.

>>
>>127244735
Yea I keep hearing that but I'm in fall of the first year and it's killing me how slow everything is.

I just can't take it. Your farm is small as fuck and has to be populated by buildings reducing your ability to farm. Farming ares are separated into a billion tiny areas that aren't super far but neither are they super close making it a pain.

There's only a single fishing hatchery in the whole fucking river.

Getting to town is a long fucking trip unless you have a fuck ton of carrots on you and you have to make the trip frequently.

Shipping prices drop dramatically after your first big shipment and you can't even ship unless a vendor happens to be in town and then you have to decide whether to hold on to all your shit to get some CP with the right vendor complicating the most basic part of the game without really enhancing it.

There's no mountain area to fuck around in so once you're done with the stuff, the day is over.

The town/overall area is too small.

I have to compete with townsfolk for farming areas after they fuck my farm area and you really can't beat them until a few months in and you have to cheese it.

I could go on and on but I really dislike the game so far.
>>
>>127230584
Good.. Elise is mine anyway, so you can settle for the third rate waifus.
>>
>>127245656
There's not enough EVERYTHING in these games.
>>
>>127245760

Your farm area gets bigger later on. And it's not really that necessary to get all of the public fields, since your farm area is artificially expanded with the use of greenhouses (2x2 plot in your field for 15 plots inside). You only need to choose what's important, like the bee and mushroom field and the paddies.

Carrots are cheap. I have a stack of those 0.5 carrots from Otmar handy all the time.

About dropping ship prices, it's the supply/demand feature that's only unique on this game. It's emulating, poorly as it can be, how real world markets work. It's a welcoming change, and I expect it would be implemented in future iterations.

It sucks about the mountain area, though.

Overall area looks small, I agree, but your character runs faster than the previous game, so that might be the cause why it looks small.

I came from FoMT/BtN, and bought the game for an HM fix. I guess it's a matter of preference. I'm liking the game very much.

>>127259603
Save 5 turnip seeds for the seedmaker. It's essential. Once Spring ends you wont be able to buy them.

Flax is the miracle money crop. Turn your flax into golden thread and then into golden cloth to make mad dosh. You unlock the seeds pretty easily if I remember right.
>>
>>127260087
Why do you automatically think i have that, i dont.
>>
>>127259603
Swim in rivers, go across every square inch, dive down when an exclamation pops up. This shit gets you way more money than anything you can grow early game. Save 5 turnip seeds so you can make the seed building when you can afford it, although it may be more worth while to make the sewing studio for your up and coming flax based empire first. Shit is fucking cash and is probably the best thing you can grow.
>>
>>127260518
You get both those blueprints from the first travelling vendor right? are most the mats for them in the river?
>>
>>127260748
Yes

Kind of. Iron and bricks you can get from the river, but to get wool you have to shear sheep which you'll be able to buy next month. For the wood just axe the twigs and branches you find on the road.

>>127260518
>Swim in rivers, go across every square inch, dive down when an exclamation pops up.
You don't need to cover space, you just need time/distance (3-10 strokes, I've found). There are three items per day per section, and each swimming place has two sections (even in the safari, I think), roughly even halves of the place. In the river with the fish hatchery spot, it's easy, since the bridge divides the two sections. In the place by Eda's farm, there's the part of the river that goes left, and the part that goes down. The part by the grain fields is basically the part near the bottom dock, and the part near the dock on the other side (and don't forget to check over there for junk).
>>
>>127261245
Iv only found twigs on the road, is it just random?
>>
>>127264529
Get enough twigs and you'll get another player.
>>
>>127259603
Save scum at the river near Eda's farm for gems and fossils to sell. The game locks all the the decent moneymakers behind days passed requirements, so that's really all you can do. Also save scum in the river near Elise's fields for bricks and iron. You'll be needing lots of those. The last river has nothing worth save scumming for in it.

Unlike most Harvest Moon games, you don't need an upgraded tool to start chopping down trees and smashing the big rocks on your farm, it'll just take several days for it to break. The rocks and lumber you'll get for that are very useful in building new buildings and upgrading tools.

Prioritize getting your Seedmaker, and once you have that convert all your weeds(not twigs, the small lumber is more useful) into fertilizer, and fertilize certain plots of each type of crop everyday. I'd recommend using the plots on Eda's farm as your star-leveling space, as it keeps you from forgetting which plots need fertilizing.

After you've got your Seedmaker, save up for a sheep when Cabin Country comes Summer 2nd. You need the sheep's wool to build the Sewing Studio, which is your next goal. Plant a bunch of flax in the meantime, but don't sell it until you get your Sewing Studio so you can process it into Golden Cloth. Once you've got that set up, you should be pulling in a decent income.
>>
>>127259603

Save up all fertilizer.
Dive in the rivers for gems.
You get Flax from Wheat Country. Flax and Cotton are your money makers.
Save at least 5 milk for the horse. You will get an event regarding that.
Save 5 Turnip seeds for the Seed Maker.
The buildings that are top priority are the Seed Maker and the Sewing Studio. Get them ASAP.
Get a pitchfork for cleaning shit in the barn.

Try negotiating the lease with her. She's willing to hand over the lease to you to use.

How'd you guys like Sunshine Islands and A New Beginning? I'm thinking about getting one of them after playing FoMT and DS to death.

Basically, I like the simplicity of those two, but wouldn't mind some more plot/not-farm-related tasks (like Two Town's bulletin board). Sunshine Islands's sun-water system seems like ass, and New Beginning seems too heavy on unlocking shit (why befriend an NPC instead of just paying for my tool upgrade?).

So, sell me on 'em. Honest pros/cons. And thanks.

Haven't played Sunshine Islands, but I have played ANB.

ANB is a real flawed game. It's real slow to start and is tedious with its item hoarding. I enjoyed it after I put some good hours in, but it's up too you if you want to wait X number of hours until it gets good.

A decent, but flawed game.

ANB is the nearest thing you can get to a town building sim. But there are a lot of flaws such as the need to hoard, the month-long tutorial and the horrid framerate. It's still a good game, but SoS fixed most of the flaws.

I don't have a favorable opinion about SI/IoH. It's too reliant on the touchscreen to play properly. I've heard it's a good game though.

There are some people in that game that you'll want to make friends with though.
>>
>>127291405
I can confirm this, I just talk to the girl i decided to advance the relationship with and thats it although i know at some point i need to level up friendship with some other characters for her flower events.

Sorry for the late response, but how would I negotiate the lease with her? There's only options to challenge when I talk to Veronica about the field.

You can unlock an order to prevent typhoons. It costs 1000 PP though, so do as many requests a day at least. Also, some kind of substance bought at the flower shop can protect stuff if the defense of a patch is maxed out (check with magnifying glass). I think max defense is either 64 or 256.

Can you save scum out of typhoons and typhoons only occur in summer right?

>>127304282

I'm disappointed.

Could be worse, he could be using cheats.
>>
>>127304282
>>127304427
Nope. Typhoons can happen any day, or in winter, blizzards that do the same thing. Can't savescum out of them either (except to go back to the previous day and use the order which is unlocked by winning the 2nd arc I think). Orders or plant defense are the only options.

In RFF, there's a way out though. If you know there's a typhoon day the next day, get yourself KO'd the day before and you'll wake up in the clinic. It may be 10AM and Lara may be mad at you, but you don't lose the entire day.

Now waiting so long to release it in Australia doesn't really make sense. Why not just release the American version under the Australia region?

It takes some time to translate English into Australian.

I'm in my second week in SoS and already got two fish fossils and a peridot.

Should I hold onto it or sell them to get some money this early in the game?

I myself like to hoard precious stones, but selling them early on would probably be the best for snowballing. I'm only on my 7th week though.
>>
>>127321286
I'll keep the stone and sell the fossils then so I can afford blueprints.
>>
>>127317429

Sell them. You need money more than those.

You can buy gems later on.
>>
>>127321286
>>127323472
Imn only keeping one fluorite i got, bricks and iron everything else gets sold because i need the seed shed and that studio.
>>
>>127316358
Gotta go through it with a fine-toothed comb to make sure there's no lolicon stuff, where lolicon means anything less than C-cup. Also need to determine the mathematically precise price markup to give, since turning games upside-down is of course an arduous task.
>>
>>127324104
You'll need those bricks and iron right quick for building and tool improvement, better to sell the gems. Except Emerald, because you need that for the house embigening.
>>
Best hm/rf game for the DS? And why. I hear mixed up things about all of them except rf3, which seems to be overall loved.

I forgot some punctuation, i ment im selling everything but bricks, iron, also copper and glass stones but selling everything else.
