Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life Guide.
Here’s a beginners guide to Story of Season: A Wonderful Life, which teaches you how to raise crops and animals, how to make friends and how to make money.
Growing crops is very important in A Wonderful Life. You’ll most likely be growing crops in your farm, and there are a lot of mistakes you can make. You can avoid these mistakes by reading this guide.
- Watering Your Crops Twice a Day:
Watering your crops is a really essential step to grow crops. If you don’t water your crops twice a day, they may not grow in time for the end of season, as most of them are slow-growing. Although most of your energy will be depleted, you still have to water your crops twice a day. You’ll unlock upgrades faster if you use your tools more, which can be bought from the van.
- Paying Attention to The Seasons:
Planting in the right season is very important because the seasons in A Wonderful Life are very short. Plants that are out of the season are impossible to plant. However, they can be planted at the end of its season, but they’ll grow a bit and die eventually. This can be a pretty expensive mistake to make.
Each crop also has a description which can tell you how long it takes for that particular crop to grow, which can be helpful in finding if your crops can grow before the end of season. So, make sure to read the description of a crop before planting them.
- Cutting Crops with Sickles:
Using sickles to cut the crop is also a great way. Although, be very careful as you can also cut the ingrown crops on accident.
Using sickles lets you cut down multiple squares at a time. It targets the crops that are ready to be harvested. Harvestable crops can be spotted by a yellow square around them.
- Yellow Squares:
Yellow squares appear around the crops that are needed to be harvested. Blue square means the crop is not ready to be harvested yet, and yellow square means that the crop is ready to be harvested.
The same goes for trees as well. When a yellow square appears around the tree it means that the fruits are ripe and ready to be harvested. Shaking the tree will drop the fruits until the square around the tree becomes blue. Trees can be a bit hard when growing as they need extra attention, care and time. Trees can be planted close to one another as long as you don’t mind them growing slowly. Be sure to consistently water your tree until they are fully grown. Once the tree is fully grown it won’t need any extra care, attention, time or water and it’ll be able to carry fruits whenever!
You’ll get a free cow as soon as you start playing the game and later on you’ll get a free horse as well. But keeping them happy, increasing their produce, and making money from their produce can be a bit tricky. So, here’s everything you need to know before raising animals in A Wonderful Life.
- Talk, Snuggle, Brush, and Feed Them:
You’ll have to talk to your animals, snuggle them, brush them, and feed them daily in order to increase and maintain their happiness. Feeding your animals Fonder+ can be really helpful as well. Although it is worth a lot of money, it can significantly improve the quality of your cows milk above C-rank very fast. In the future, when you have a high level friendship with your animals, you can just brush and feed them. Now, when not using Fonder+, your cows milk may drop in quality from time to time, but it can be brought up again by using some Fonder+.
- Birds are Easier:
Birds are easier to raise as they don’t require any extra attention, care, or time. They stay happy being outside all the time. Doesn’t matter if it’s night or it’s raining. Cows and sheeps can be really sensitive as compared to birds. Having your birds outside can also be helpful in saving money and not buying bird seeds. Just be sure to snuggle them to raise your friendship with them. This also helps you get golden eggs from them every once in a while and it can be sold for five times the regular price of an egg.
There can be a lot of ways to make money in A Wonderful Life, such as selling meals, fishes, fossils, crops and animal products. Selling these things will only help you make a bit of cash but nothing too good. So, here’s everything you need to know about making money in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life.
Fishing is a great way to earn money in this game. All you have to do is grab a fishing rod from the van when it comes. To fish, just cast your line into the water and press the button when an exclamation mark pops up. Just be sure to fish by the waterfall near the mining area as the fish here sells for more as compared to the other places. Now, you can sell your fish to the van. You can also save the “lil” fish for cooking or gifting other people as it doesn’t sell for much.
- Looking for Wild Animals:
On your journey you’ll see some wild animals such as a turtle with a neckerchief or a lizard missing one of its legs and so on. These animals indicate that fishing is really good today. You’ll need to look out for the lizard with a missing leg. This animal indicates that fishing is good at the waterfall near the mining area.
You must all check your TV every morning as it tells your luck level that day along with helpful farming tips and the weather forecast. This can help you get the idea of how good of a fishing day it’ll be for you!
- Selling your male animals
Selling your male animals can be a good way of making money as well. Because they provide much output as compared to the female animals and take up alot of space in the barn. However, keeping one male chicken can be beneficial as you can get fertilized eggs.
You can put these fertilized eggs in the incubator to get baby chickens. Keeping male sheeps is also not a problem as they give the same amount of wool as female sheep.
- Investing in Trees:
Investing in trees is a good way to make money, as they will be your main source of income. You can turn trees into hybrid crops which sell for alot more so, you must grow at least one tree. You can even grow trees on poor soil as they don’t need any special care or attention.
Mining is also a great way to make money as you can dig items that can sell for upto 1000G. Look for the chihuahua that appears at the entrance of the mine. He is the lucky wild animal for mining. If you see him go straight to mining as it is going to be a good day to mine! Things like statues, fossils, and ore can be used as gifts because they are not useful. You can sell them as well. Also, you should mine every chapter until you get the stone tablet.
- Make Friends:
Making friends can be really helpful in this game as different friends from the town provide you with different services. You can only befriend a couple of people if you have the time and energy. Following are some of the people you can befriend who have useful stuff.
- Takakura (access to hybrid crops)
- Daryl (Free Seed Maker)
- Lou (Lou’s Spice)
- Spending Money Wisely:
Spending money on new upgrades that don’t have any good benefit is a waste of money. The most useful upgrades are the Watering Can and the Fishing Rod as the watering can allows you to water more squares at once and the fishing rod helps you catch rare fishes. After these two, A Hoe and a Sickle are very useful as they both can sythe more squares at once. These were all the useful upgrades to buy, buying anything else without a purpose is a waste of money.
- Farm Facilities:
Picking the right farm facilities is very important as it helps you save a lot of money. Following are some of the best facilities for your farm.
- A Pond (To raise ducks)
- A Processing Room (Helps increase the sell price of all the Milk)
- Upgrading your Barn (Extra Space)
- A Fertilizer Maker (Easier access to fertilizer)
- A Fertilizer Spreader (Accurate and Faster)
