 Well, this is my first FAQ. EVER. I've so far thought about writing
 an FAQ for nearly every other Harvest Moon game out there, but the
 problem was that by the time I got the game, there was already a
 bunch of them written. Well, with A Wonderful Life, I luckily got it
 the day it came out. Hopefully, I thought, this would give me the
 chance to write up an FAQ for it before everyone else did. So, I
 then decided to write an FAQ for this game. It's my first, so go
 easy on me. =P (Sntr)

 |         A Game about farming?!           |

 Yes, this game is 'about farming', but that's not all it's about-
 and it's fun. Not to mention addictive. Ever heard the phrase
 "Don't judge a book by its cover?" Well, that applies to this game.
 Don't judge it until you give it a chance, and I'm almost sure you'll
 like it. (Sabt)

 |                Controls                  |

 I'm gonna make a big assumption here, and that's that you know
 where all the buttons are on your controller. *GASP!*


 Control Stick: This buttom moves your character, as well as
                the curser,  selecting options from menus,
                choosing items from your rucksack, etc.

 Direction Pad: This works like the control stick, except it
                does not move your character; it only works
                in menus and in your rucksack.

 C-stick:       The C-stick rotates the camera, if you are
                not in any menus. If in the rucksack menu,
                pressing the C-stick left or right will change
                the page/category that items are in.

 B-Button:      The B-button is mostly used for canceling out
                of menus, to return back to the normal screen.

 A-Button:      The A-Button is your main action button.
                Pay attention to what word is over the green
                A-Button in the top right of your screen to see
                which action can be done.

 Y-Button:      This is the secondary action button, mostly
                used for snuggling animals and washing cattle.
                Pay attention to the top right of the screen
                to see what actions can be done.

 X-Button:      The X-Button opens your shortcut rucksack
                menu, or opens the Forget-Me-Not Valley map
                if you are riding your horse.

 L (shoulder):  The L button changes the camera so that it is
                directly behind your character. I find this
                sometimes a little confusing, so I advise
                you use the C-stick for changing views if you
                do not like the way this one works.

 R (shoulder):  The R button is for whistling. Press it once,
                and you will whistle for your dog. Double-tap
                it to whistle for your horse, once you get one.

 Z (shoulder):  Use this to go into first-persion view, through
                the eyes of your character. Time goes by while
                using this, so remember that.

 About your farm:

        This is your house! It comes with:

        - A bed. You sleep on it...

        - A record player, at the base of your bed. You can change
        your background music if you find other records.

	- A diary. This is possibly the most important part of
	your home. You use this to save, and go to sleep. You
	wouldn't get very far without this...

        - A television set. Press A button while in front of it
        to use. Use the control stick to change to
        different channels. Press B button to exit.

                Up = Weather Channel
                Right = News Broadcast
                Down = Entertainment
                Left = Today's horoscope

        - A kitchen. If you have the correct ingredients, you can
        cook recipes to eat, sell, or give as gifts. If your
        combination of items isn't correct, it will make a
        failure. Only van would buy this...

        - A Calendar, on the right wall.

 Dog House
        Takakura said he'd build a home for the little guy, and he stuck
        to his word. You can not bring your dog inside, and that is why
        it needs a dog house. Next to the dog house is your dog's food	
        dish. You can put any food item (Besides beverages such as milk)
        in here. Remember to feed your dog every day if you want it to
        like you.

        You have three different fields in this game; not fertile,
        fertile, and very fertile. You should concentrat on planting
        your main crops in the fertile field, other crops in the fertile
        field (you can add fertilizer also) and trees in the unfertile

        This is where you will keep your feathered friends, chickens and
        ducks while they are not outside. There is also an incubator in
        the top left corner, where you can hatch a fertilized egg into
        a chick. You can not place regular unfertilized eggs in the
        incubator. In order to get fertilized eggs, you need to have a
        male and female bird. A few days after you have both a male and
        a female, you may start to find	fertilized eggs every once and
        a while.

        *For more info about how to get ducks, see "Chapter One" in the

        At this well, you fill up your watering can so you can water the
        crops in your fields. Have your watering can equiped, and press
        the A button to fill it up.

        This building is, as far as I know, always locked. Many people
        assume that it was planned to be the stable for your horse, but
        the horse was just put in the barn with cattle instead. Oh well.

 Storage Tower
        You can do three things in this room. You can store food items,	
        Purchase/sell new animals/tools/buildings for your farm, and
        leave dairy products (Milk, eggs, cheese, butter) to be picked up
        by Takakura and sold. You can also se a summary of daily, seasonal,
        and total profits.

        To store food items, walk up to the large freezer in the back of
        the room. Press A, and you can move items from your rucksack to
        the food storage. (What? You say some of your food items have
        disappeared?! Well, maybe Murrey might know what happened to your
        food, heheh)

        To purchase and sell new things for your farm, access the ledger
        in the middle of the room, a little to the left. Move the cursor
        down and then left until you reach the "order" button. This is
        where you order new animals, tools, and buildings. There is also
        a button at the bottom for selling animals you no longer wish
        to keep.

        To sell dairy products, access the blue box in the middle of the
        room. Move dairy from your rucksack into the bottom half of the
        screen, and Takakura will sell these items for you, and leave the
        money. Check back later to pick up the money.

 Tool Shed
        In this shed, you can store tools that you don't want to carry
        around with you on the shelves, located on the left side of the
        shed (don't forget to press right on the control stick to see
        more tools). Although, because your rucksack is nearly
        limitless, I find it a little pointless to have to run to the
        tool shed every time you want to switch tools, so I just keep
        them all with me. When you order a new tool, bird seed or the
        like, this is where Takakura will put it. When he delivers it,
        you will see a cutscene involving him in your tool shed.

        On the right side of the shed, there is a cabinet. This is where
        bird seed, miracle potions, animal medicines and the linke will
        be put.

        This is the barn, where your cows, sheep, goats, and horse should
        be when it isn't convenient for them to be outside, such as
        when it is raining. If you are keeping animals inside the barn,
        you should fill their feed boxes with fodder (Don't know how to
        get fodder? See the "pasture" section). Take fodder out of the
        silo by walking up to the steel dispenser on the left side of
        the barn. You can check teh status of your animals by viewing
        the green chalk board in the back. You can instantly move all
        of your barn animals into the barn by pressing the red button
        at the back of the room.

        When it's sunny outside, animals love to be in the pasture,
        they don't have to be fed- they eat on their own. Each animal
        will eat 1 patch of grass, so unless you cut down every single
        patch of grass in your pasture, they will be fine. You can
        press the red button on the back of the barn (outside) to move
        all animals outside. Use the sickle on fully grown grass to
        get fodder. Every patch of grass you cut gets you one fodder.
        Be careful not to hit your animals by accident!

 Water Trough
        Next to the barn is a water trough. If you have the brush, you
        can wash your animals here. Push your animals over to the
        trough by getting behind them, and pressing the control stick	
        in the direction you want them to go, holding down A. Once your
        animal is there, have your brush equiped, and face your animal,
        and press Y when "wash" appears.

 Takakura's House
        Just what it sounds like, this is where Takakura lives.
        Why don't you stop by and say hello to him?

 There are two sides to the waterfall, which are the spring and the ruins.
 On the spring side you can also find the harvest sprites' home. Because
 you are too big to enter their door, you have to eat one of the strange
 mushrooms sitting nearby. Lumina, Rock, and Hugh like to spend time
 in the afternoons in this area.

 On the other side of the river is the Ruins, Also known as Carter's
 dig sight. You can help carter dig for artifacts if you go down there
 and talk to him. Flora and Carter live in the tent right next to the
 dig site.

 Takakura suggested to you that you get married and have a
 family as soon as you can. There are slim pickins' for wives
 in Forget-Me-Not Valley. By presenting them with... well,
 presents, you can earn their affection, and hopefully shape
 the way for your future with who you want to live with. You
 can tell how much they like you by checking their diaries in
 their rooms. Without further ado, let's meet the elegible

 Celia doesn't care about shiny jewelry or expensive presents,
 a simple flower now and then will do nicely. She can often be
 found in her loft-like bedroom, on the second floor of the
 building on Vesta's Farm. Give her a crop that you grow on
 your farm, and she'll tell you how it was.

 You can find Celia's diary in her bedroom, under her bed.

 Muffy works at the Blue Bar with Griffin. Her huge green
 eyes may be intimidating, but she's quite nice. She enjoys
 long walks on the beach with "Sexy, hardworking men". She
 can be found working behind the Blue Bar counter, in the
 back room of the Blue Bar (tell her you came to see her!)
 or taking a stroll outside. She HATES fish.

 Muffy's diary is stashed in a plant in the main room of the
 Blue Bar, in the far left corner.

 Nami plays hard to get... She's not exactly a cheery person,
 and She's not like other girls. She doesn't particularly
 enjoy flowers, unless they are Autumn flowers. She likes
 skull fossils which you can dig up in  Carter's dig site, too.

 Nami's diary is in her room- The room on the left, on the second
 floor of the Inner inn. Wait until she goes into it late at night
 or early in the morning, and then you can go in. Her dairy is in
 plain sight on the left.

 Crops, the fruit of your labor- you have to do quite a bit
 of work to get them to grow, but in the end, it'll all be
 worth it. There are three different generations of crops-
 first generation (normal), second generation, and third

 For planting crops, do as Vesta does, and plant in a
 checkerboard pattern, like this:

 [X][ ][X][ ][X]
 [ ][X][ ][X][ ]
 [X][ ][X][ ][X]
 [ ][X][ ][X][ ]
 [X][ ][X][ ][X]

 Many people, myself included, have found that crops
 grow slightly faster when planted like this.
 This may be because plants don't like to be crowded,
 and this way they are not competing for space.

 Remember to water your plants twice a day- once in the
 morning, and once in the afternoon, or whenever they
 look dry. Watered plants will have darker colored soil.

 When it's raining, you don't need to water your plants.
 However, because rain can stop at any time, you may have
 to water when it stops, or before it starts.

 these are what you might consider the 'normal' crops.
 To get the seeds for these, you can simply buy them from
 anyone on Vesta's farm.

 |               Animal Basics              |
 Unlike plants, you can actually talk to animals. No, Tartan
 doesn't count! Haha.
 |                   Cows                   |

 |                 Chickens                 |
 Chickens are the cheapest animal you can buy, but unlike cows,
 you don't have to do any planning on breeding, growing up, and
 miracle potions.

 I suggest buying a Hen (female) and Rooster (male) chicken as
 soon as possible. This way, you will soon start producing some
 FERTILIZED EGGS. These eggs are worth more than regular eggs,
 but the main advantage is that you can put a fertilized egg into
 the INCUBATOR in the far left corner, and a baby chick will hatch
 in a few days. If the new chick is a male, you can just sell it-
 only one male is needed to produce fertilized eggs (lucky him!).

 Adult chickens sell for 450 G
 Young chickens sell for 150 G

 To feed your chickens, you first need to have chicken feed. If
 you have none, you can order more though the LEDGER in the storage
 tower (the same place you put your dairy products in). Go in the
 storage tower, and press A while facing the blue note pad. Move
 your curser to the icon that has Takakura's face on it, and press
 A. The second, third, and fourth order buttons (labled "order items")
 will allow you to order chicken feed if you press A, and select
 "other". Chicken feed is 150 G for every unit. Don't be too
 worried about this, chicken feed lasts for a few days.

 Chickens can be left outside on normal, sunny days. This makes
 them happy, and they also don't need to eat food from the coop.
 To keep your chickens happy, you should hold them at least once a
 day, and hug them twice a day (Once in the morning, once in the

 Keep any females that hatch, because they will lay eggs. There
 are three different kinds of eggs that they can lay. They are:

 Regular Egg: This is just a plain, regular egg. It cannot be
              incubated to make a baby chick. It sells for 40 G.

 Fertilized Egg: The Fertilized egg can be put in the incubator
                 to hatch a baby chick. They are slightly more
                 brown than regular eggs. They sell for 50 G.

 Golden Eggs: When a hen is very happy, it will sometimes lay a
              GOLDEN EGG. These eggs can not be incubated to
              make a golden chicken (darn!), but they can be sold
              for up to 360 G. Normally, they only sell for 300 G.
              However, if you try to sell it to Van and then
              decline his offer of 300 G, he will sometimes raise
              his offer to 360 G. If he doesn't do this, just
              do the same thing again until he does, making you an
              extra 60 G per egg.

 Eggs won't always be there right away when you wake up. Of course,
 this is because chickens don't lay eggs in their sleep! Check back
 in the coop around 11:00 or so, and they should have laid their eggs
 by then.

 |                  Sheep                   |
 |                  Goats                   |
 |                  Ducks                   |
 If you had a pond built for 2,500 G in the first chapter, you
 can get ducks! To get ducks, you must have the pond, have six
 or less chickens so there's room in the coop for ducks, be in the
 second chapter or later, and be in the summer (Some say it also
 works in fall?). Because in the duck cutscene, your wife wakes
 you up and tells you the ducks have returned, you have to go to
 bed late so you wake up AFTER your wife. So, don't go to sleep
 until around 2:00 AM or so, and you should be good.

 You'll find a male and female duck in the pond, and you get
 to decide whether or not to keep them. If you decide to keep
 them, you then name them, and show them where the coop is.

 If you sell one of the two ducks, you can never get them again.

 More on ducks coming soon...

 |                  Horse                   |

 In the Summer or Fall of the first year, Takakura will tell you
 that "The new animal that you ordered has arrived!" Wait, what?
 You don't remember ordering any animals! It turns out that
 Takakura ordered a horse for you. You will be told to name it,
 and choose the place for it's feeding box in the barn.

 Remember, Takakura will not deliver the horse if you have
 ordered an animal. Refrain from ordering an animal for a few days
 so you can receive your horse.

 The horse may respond to being talked to and hugged at first,
 but it will eventually become unresponsive to these things.
 This doesn't mean that it doesn't like you, it just happens.
 It will, however, sometimes respond to being brushed, with a
 music note bubble.

 Riding your horse is much faster than walking by foot, and it
 also saves a lot of energy.

 If you want to whistle for your horse wherever you are (not in
 houses, though) double-tap R, and your horse will be right next
 to you in the blink of an eye. How DOES he do it?

 |                   Pets                   |

 At the begining of the game, you choose which dog you want- the
 pointy eared one, or the long eared one. Think this is the only
 pet you get? Well, there's more!

 Cat: If you befriend Ramona, the elderly lady in the large mansion,
      she will eventually give you one of her cats. Ramona won't
      accept gifts while she's sitting down, so wait until she's up
      and about, and THEN try to give her something. She likes flowers.

 Chihuahua: Info coming soon
