This guide was originally made by kkslider02, who helped me (HMKing) on my
HM:FoMT guide. After many months of working on FoMT only, I bought AWL for my
somewhat new GameCube (Which is black, not the stupid purple one). Like I 
did with FoMT, I jumped right into making a guide before I got to know much 
about the game. That proved to be a challenge so I talked to kkslider02 who 
said that the two of us could redo his guide. With my formatting skills and 
his knowledge on the game, we could make a really good guide for a really 
good game. So I did my formatting thing and sent the guide off to gamefaqs.
The guide got accepted, but they screwed it up and gave all the credit to me,
which sucks for kkslider02. I told him that happened and he said he didn't care.
So don't say, "OMG! YOU STOLE KKSLIDER02'S GUIDE! WHATS UR PROBLEM!"

Story...............................................................(AWL.02.01)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

The main story of AWL is based on you and Takakura. Your father and Takakura
set out to save the farm and make it a prosperous place of prosper (wow!).
Anyway, your dad died (someone always dies in a Harvest Moon game. Why can't
they all just live forever and give you the farm for no reason at all?!) and
Takakura got you to make the farm a prosperous  place of prosper. It is now
Takakura's dream to make the farm a good farm.

When I first started to play this game, I was confused as heck. I was grounded
from the internet, so I couldn't get a guide. I had no other choice but to
figure EVERYTHING out on my own. So for those who are 100% new to AWL, I feel
your pain! Since I feel it, I will clear up soem confusing stuff for you right 
off the bat.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
Time Explanation....................................................(AWL.02.3a)
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
Unlike the time system in every other Harvest Moon game there is some logic in
this one! FINALLY! The logic is this: Every second you play is like a minute in
the game. This really has no effect for you WHAT-SO-EVER except for the fact
that it explains that everyday is twenty-four minutes (of REAL time) long. Most
of the other Harvest Moon games skip around time a lot. There's no obvious
logic to the time in the previous Harvest Moons.
The sad thing is that it took me three days in the game to figure this out. :)

Also, everytime you fall asleep, you go through six in-game hours (the equivalent
of six minutes in real life). That means if you like to skip through days a lot 
(like to get to the next season with out actually playing through it) you gotta 
go to bed like three times in a row. The other Harvest Moons just let you fall a
sleep through the whole day, but this Harvest Moon is unique.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
How to Sell.........................................................(AWL.02.3b)
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
There are several ways to sell in this game.

-Opening Up Shop:
This is, in my opinion, the COOLEST feature that this game has! You can
actually open up your own little shop and sell stuff. You can't like open up a
building and sell and stuff, but you can lay down a blanket and sell your items
(even old tools that you don't use anymore). To do this, go to the grassy area
that is between the Inner Inn and a big tree and a small square for growing
stuff. Next to the green area (to the right of it) there is a path that leads
down hill. right in front or next to that, walk around until you have the
option to SELL as an "A" button option. Hit "A" to open up shop. Use "R" to
whistle to townsfolk walking by to bring them to your shop.

NOTE: Pay attention to what people want to buy from you. Don't just sell 
something because someone is willing to buy something. Someone might want to 
buy a tool or an important item of yours. Also keep in mind that people like 
when you drop the price a few g's. If you don't care to please, then make the
price as high as it will go.

-Having Takakura Sell:
This is similar to what most Harvest Moon Veterans are used to. By placing
dairy products in the dairy shipping bin (which is in the tall tower like
building on your farm) Takakura will sell them and will give you the money as
soon as he sells the stuff off. Though this is the easiest way to sell stuff,
it is limited. All you can sell is milk and eggs. No crops, wool, plants, etc.

-Selling to Van
Whenever Van shows up around town head over to the place where you can set up
shop. Van will have HIS shop set up, which prevents you from setting yours up,
but don't worry. You can just sell him your stuff. Talk to him and choose the
SELL option. Then sell him what you want to sell. You can also buy some nifty
gifts for you kid, a goat, and some power drinks.

NOTE: To see Van's scheduled arrivals check your calendar (on the right wall 
of your house) for the squares with Van's face on them. Those are his 
scheduled days. That doesn't mean he won't pop up unexpected, because he does
that a lot too.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
How to Buy..........................................................(AWL.02.3c)
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
There are several ways to buy in this game.

-Ordering
Go to the house that looks like a tower (skinny,tall). Look at the desk
on the left and move your cursor down to Orders. Then you can choose from a
variety of ways to order tools, items, and animals.

-Van
When Van comes to town, he will offer to sell you several items. Choose what
you want and buy it. He sells toys for you kid, a goat, and power drinks. 

-Vesta Farm
Just go to Vesta Farm and talk to either Vesta or Celia to buy seeds.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
Farming.............................................................(AWL.02.3d)
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

If you are a Harvest Moon Veteran, farming in this game shouldn't be that much
different for you. The process is the same, but there's a few things new you
should know about when to farm.
-You can grow potatoes and strawberries in the winter
-Several crops can continue to grow during winter
-Each bag of seeds fills up one square of toiled land when you use it.
-There are now three designated farming areas
-Grow and harvest LOTS of banana trees!

Anyway, on to the basics.
In order to farm, you will need three things:
-Hoe (comes with the farm)
-Bag of seeds (Buy them at Vesta Farm)
-Watering Can (Comes with the farm)

There are three places that you can grow stuff on. The first is to the right of
your house. The second is to the right of your chicken's house. The third is next
to the house you can't enter. The first one has the worst soil. The second has the
second best (of course) and the third is the best soil. For best farming results,
use the third one for crops and the first and second for trees. So head over to
the third one. Equip your hoe and move around until you have a yellow square
around one of the boxes in the farming area. Then hit "A". You have just tilled
the soil! WOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO. Now equip your bag of seeds. Move around until
you have a yellow square around the box you just tilled. Then pull out your
watering can (If this is your first time using it, you need to fill it up my
hitting "A" by the little water pump that is next to your chicken's house).
Repeat this until you are all out of seeds. I do not list good formation ideas
because they are pointless! You can access every square on every field with any
formation your heart desires.

Features That Stand Out.............................................(AWL.02.03)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=


I have a long list of em...

1) For the first time since the original Harvest Moon, in order to see a girl's
level of love you must read their diary. This brings back memories of the good
old days.

2) You can open up a small stand and sell your stuff

3) You can automatically send your animals to and from the field

4) There is two farms in the town

5) You can milk your cows multiple times in one day

6) Multiple bottles from one milking

7) Chicken feed lasts a while

8) You can order stuff from your farm

9) You can combine plants to make hybrid plants

10) No love rivals...ah...how nice

11) You can ride your horse ANYWHERE

12) Crops growable in Winter

Review..............................................................(AWL.02.04)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

Following an extremely well made line of farming simulation games, Harvest 
Moon: A Wonderful Life (HM8) brings many new features to the table that makes 
this Harvest Moon game anything put a repeat of its predecessors. Since I list
the coolest of the new features for this game in the above subsection, I won't
list them again, but those features, along with others, make this the greatest
Harvest Moon up this point. The only downside to this game is that once you
realize the money making powers of bannana seeds and you buy the seed maker
and harvest all your bannanas and make them seeds and sell them to Van, you then
buy like everything there is in the game and its like blah whats the point of
playing. But until you discover them magical nanners, you'll have fun.

There are 4 kinds of cows. They differ in appearance and by milk types.
They are: Normal, Brown, Marble, and Star. To buy them you have to order them.
To do this, you have to go to the tall, skinny building on your farm and order
using the book on the left box
Then there are bulls and well... cows. Non-bulls are the ones that will make
yummy milk for you. Your first cow will make milk for 1 year. After that it
stops. To get more milk you'll need to get it bred. You can either buy a pricy
miracle potion, or buy a pricy bull. (if you buy a bull you'll have to wait 30
days before it can well... do it.) The actual prices for the cows and bulls
are listed below:

Normal cow: 4000G

Normal bull: 3000G

Brown cow: 5000G

Brown bull: 4000G

Marble cow: 5000G

Marble bull: 4000G

Star cow: 7000G

Star bull: 6000G


The milk prices for all 4 cows are listed below:

Normal cow:
Milk B: 75G
Milk A: 115G
Milk S: 150G
Cheese:?
Butter:?

Brown Cow:
Milk B: 115G
Milk A: 175G
Milk S: 225G

Marble cow:
Milk B: 115G
Milk A: 175G
Milk S: 225G

Star cow:
Milk B: 270G
Milk A: 405G
Milk S: 540G


So you ask how do you get A and S milk? The answer is good fodder. It costs
200G a piece and helps raise your cow's milk up. I normally get A milk just by
talking and brushing my cow before milking, so it shouldn't be too hard to get
S milk. Also please note that the cheese and butter info is listed below.
Also, as you may notice there is no such thing as marble cheese S or
star butter A, all there is is regular and good cheese and butter. So please
don't send me stuff saying marble A cheese sells for 300G, as this is what I
call half-crap. Also, only my marble cow and brown cow are giving milk right
now so thats all I have. Please don't hurt me for that. Or send angry emails.

Chickens/Ducks......................................................(AWL.03.02)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

Eat mor chikin. Sorry, couldn't resist. Anyway, you can get chickens (the ones
that lay eggs) roosters (guy chickens) and ducks (both male and female).
Chickens and ducks are quite simple. All they need is a little bird feed and
they will love you. To get ducks, simply buy the pond, and sometime in the
1st year of chapter 2 your wife will tell you there are ducks, and you get to
decide to keep them or not. If you do (which I hope you will) you can get
duckys (real ones, not rubber ones). Duck eggs look like the same as chicken
eggs. If you want to get more chickens/ducks simply take a fertilized egg
 and place it on the incubator and it will either hatch into a chicken,
rooster, or duck. It will take 1 season for the egg to hatch and 1 season for
the chick/duckling to grow up.
Chickens aren't much of a money maker UNLESS! You breed them to sell them. 
just have the chicken grow up and sell it for some money!

First I will handle sheep. Sheep are a once per season income. every 10 days
your sheep will give you wool. If your extra nice and wash it a lot you might
get golden wool. You can't breed sheep because you can only get males. Sheep
only eat once per day. They cost 1,500G. They are a complete waste of money!

As for the goat... I highly advise you not to buy one. Yes, I bet your running
off to buy one right when you read that, but really consider it first. First
of all you can't sell it. So your stuck with it. Unless you can kill it. Which
is bad. Very bad. Second of all, it only produces milk for one year, so it
will pay for itself, but you are stuck with it. I highly advise against buying
it, but hey its your game. Goat milk sells for 115G and goat cheese sells for
155G and goat butter sells for 150G. Like the sheep, they are a waste of 
money!

Horse...............................................................(AWL.03.04)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

You recieve your horse in the first summer of chapter 1. He is used for
transportation. He can really help you get a lot done in one day. He eats once
per day (although, for me at least, my horse goes days with just one thing of
feed, which is weird) and requires little maitenence. Just talk and brush him 
every day and he will be happy.

TOWN

The town is a farely large area, and some places (romana's villa) can take a
small portion of the day to get to. Here is a rough picture of the town:

What would an HM game be without crops? Well, it would be a pile of animals,
and a barrel of monkeys. (hahaha bad humor) Anyway there are 3 generations of
crops. The ones you buy from Vesta (1st), The ones you get from cross-breeding
1st generation crops (2nd), and the ones you get from cross-breeding the 2nd
generation crops (3rd). To get your non-tree crops up one rank use 4 things
of fertilizer on them, but spread out in time. (once when you plant, once when
they sprout, once when they get taller, and once when they flower.) To get
trees up one rank (which I don't suggest) use 30 things of fertilizer.
(once per day is good I think.) Also below is the way I grow my crops. I use a
checkerboard pattern and I think it helps me direct the little targeting water
thing. I must really like you guys to make this for you huh? NAH! I just do it
for the ladys!!! lol... wait no... This would never attract ladys...
YOUR VERY OWN:
Very fertile field

KEY:

*: An empty space
C: A place where you should grow a crop.

Also please note, you don't have to fill up every single spot! On average per
season, I grow about 40-49 crops. I grow some S rank crops (32) and some
crops to use for cooking. Which brings us to the subsection A.

Besides just making crops, you can change your crop's properties by using
happy lamp, upseed, or gemsoil. Below in a neat little table it shows what
they do. Also please note that the flowers ONLY work with seeds.
I will update the user contributed parts soon.

In order to move on to Chapter 2, you need to have proposed to a girl. To do
this, follow the heart chart below:

-Green Heart:  She is aware of your presence
-1 Red Heart:  You two are okay friends now
-2 Red Hearts: You two are pretty good friends now
-3 Red Hearts: This would be refered to as the Dating Stage in real life
-4 Red Hearts: She loves ya! At this point, if you have it, you can give her
               the Blue Feather.

Well I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think all you need to get to 1 Red Heart
is to talk to a girl once or twice and give her one gift. That's what happened
with Muffy.

You may be wondering, "How do I get this feather of the blue?"
I'm not really sure on how to get it exactly. Here's what I had:
-It was the 12th of Spring 1
-I had two red hearts.

Anyway the cutscene for getting the blue feather is rather funny. After you get
it propose to your girl if you can.

Along with where I list them being at, the girls can be found walking around
the town.

You'd think the ever popular harvest moon guy would of learned to buy some
electric tools by now. Every day it's go outside and use a human operated
hoe and waste all your energy. Anyway here is the tool list:

Watering can L- The name says it all. A large watering can. It holds up to 140
squares. Essential for growing lots of crops.

Watering can- A normal watering can. Don't bother to buy unless your writing
a FAQ. Save up for the large one. This one only holds 70.

Watering can S*- A small watering can. Takakura gave it to you. It only holds
35 squares!

Strange watering can- Romana gives it to you. Holds one square. The only thing
its good for is to collect dust.

Brush- Buy from Van. Cheap good buy. Used on animals to make them happy.

Shears?- You get them from Chris I think. Need info on these.

Electric clippers- YAY he advanced one tiny step out of the stone age. These
are expensive and aren't that much different at all from the normal shears.
Buy if you feel like wasting money. (like I did) Order from Takakura.

Wool shears- Used for... shearing wool! Who would of guessed it? Pretty cheap,
and needed to get that precious wool off of the sheep. Order from Takakura.

Heavy sickle*- A heavy sickle. Takakura gave it to you. Used to cut fodder for
the animals. Hard to use.

Sickle- Not as heavy as the heavy sickle, but not as light as the light sickle
Used to cut fodder.

Light sickle- A light sickle. Used to cut fodder. Expensive.

Strange sickle- From Gustafa. Very heavy and hard to use.

Weird sickle- From Dr. Hardy. Very heavy and hard to use.

Heavy hoe*- A heavy hoe. From Takakura. Hard to use.

Hoe- Not as heavy as the heavy hoe but heavier then the light hoe.

Light hoe- Expensive. Light and good. Doesn't use much energy.

Weird hoe- From Vesta. Heavy and bad. Bottom line: it sucks.

Strange hoe- From Tim and Ruby. Heavy. Sucks.

Fishing pole- Buy from Van. A good investment.

Fishing rod- (thanks to ryguy899 for this info)
You get it from Galen once you make good friends with him. He won't take your
presents until you start making him happier by cleaning up Nina's grave
(2nd Year and on)

Milker*- Used to milk cows. Takakura gives it to you.

Goat milker- Comes with the goat you can buy from Van.

Money Making........................................................(AWL.05.01)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

One of my most important and main source of income is from my trees.
Yep thats right. Trees. The main reason is because the tree seeds sell for so
much! Below is a list of money making techniques that I have composed.

Got a money making techinique? Send it to us! Email your technique to 
toxicityj@gmail.com 


1) Sell tree seeds.

2) Be nice to your cow so it gives you at least A rank milk.

3) Get 1 or 2 sheep and wash them twice per season. They will give you golden
wool.

4) I'm not that big a fan of chickens, but I know that selling their offspring
is a good source of income.

5) Buy a bull, so you don't have to pay every time you want to breed.

6) Heres my strategy with cow birth: First have one pregnant cow. Then once
the baby is born, wait for it to stop producing milk, then sell the mother
if the baby was a female. If the baby was male then sell the baby once
it grows up if you don't want it. Get another cow pregenant and repeat cycle.

7) Grow S rank crops. Its really not that hard.

8) Fish in the hot spots indicated by the town map. Try to catch any size
sharshark (river mouth) or yaname (waterfall). They're both big sellers.

9) (from ryguy899)
Requirements:
At most 99 fodder & Van has to be in town
Directions:
Go to your barn and take out 99 fodder (that's all you can carry)
Go sell all 99 to Van for 10G each
If you sell them all, you can get 999G

10) (from paperclips900)
Get rubys spice by being friends with ruby and tim and cook the spice under
any choice as the only ingredient and it will multipy itself to 2 ruby spices
(unfortunately you cant use 2 ruby spices to make 4 only 1 to make 2) then
when you have 99 put 1 away and sell the rest. the sell for 100 a piece.


Please, submit me your techniques. Believe it or not, I don't know everything.

Linking Up..........................................................(AWL.05.03)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=
To hook the games up, you need the following:

Gameboy Advance/SP
GameCube console
GameCube controller
GameCube memory card
Gameboy Advance/GameCube Link Cable
Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town game
Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life game

In FoMT:
Once you have all of the stuff connected and all that, go to the Goddess' pond
(the one near Spring Mine) and throw something in it (food, grass, etc.). The
Goddess will appear and ask you if you would like to connect. Obviously, say
yes.

NOW...

In AWL:
Run over to Vesta Farm. See that path that goes up a really steep
mountain? Walk up it and Nik, Nack, and Flack will say you can't go unless
you want to connect. Tell them you want to connect and after some brief
instructions, you will be asked to confirm the connection.

Van's Shop..........................................................(AWL.05.04)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

You know how you can open up your own little shop? Well there is this guy, named
Van, who does the same thing you do, except he'll buy from you too. Just talk to
the big red guy when he shows up at least twice a month. Then you can eithe sell,
buy, or cancel.
NOTE: He will take pretty much anything.
NOTE: A really helpful tip involving him is sell him 99 fodder. You will get
990g back. Just make sure that you have enough afterwards for your animals. If
not, just cut some up.
NOTE: To see when he'll come by, check your calendar.

A Day On The Farm (1 Day Walkthrough)...............................(AWL.05.04)
=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=

First thing I do when I get up is check the weather. If it isn't going to rain at
all that day, I'll go let my livestock out in the field. After this I cut some
grass to stock up for Winter.  Then, if its not too early, I'll milk my cows and
talk, cuddle, and brush all my animals. Next I'll check on my chickens. If there is
still feed in the box I'll collect the eggs. Then I cuddle/pick up the chickens.
After that I go out and water my crops and harvest them if they are ready. After
that I head into town on my horse and give a flower to the girl I picked (I picked
Celia). Then I stock up on any seeds I might want or need. Then I walk around the
area, picking up anything that I can sell. By this time its about mid day. So
from then until like fourish I open up shop and sell people passing by the
day's harvest, milkings, eggs, etc. After that I go home and pick up and cuddle my
chickens. Then I do the same for my animals. I milk what I can then put those in
Takakura's selling box for him to sell the next day. Then I once again water the
plants. Then I cut some more grass and head off to bed and wake up in the middle
of the night and go to sleep again.

HMKing-
"I started writing guides back in '03. My first guide was either Harvest Moon,
for the Super Nintendo or Harvest Moon 64. I can't remember which it was. ^.^
Anyway. I had been reading someone elses guide for some game and thought, "Heck
I could do this. How hard could it be?" heh...well I soon found out. After
constant rejection from Gamefaqs, I did a google search for Harvest Moon sites.
I found like three or four and sent my guide to all of their webmasters and
told them that I thought they should put text guides on their site. Out of
those three or four only one replied. The reply was a yes. Thanks to Covert I
got my first guide put on the site. Of course, no offense to my buddy Covert,
but to this day I still havn't gotten any emails from anyone saying they got
the guide at HMWorld (Covert's site). Anyway after Covert's site I tried
Gamewinners, IGN, and Neoseeker. All three accepted and I was really happy.
So I eventually got bored with my first guide and moved on to many more guides.

Full Guide List (Find Them All At Neoseeker.com):
-Harvest Moon (Super Nintendo)
-Harvest Moon 64 (Nintendo 64)
-Harvest Moon GBC3 (Gameboy Color)
