\____________________________________________/

Welcome to the my Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town FAQ. Last April when 
the game was released in Japan I wrote the first version of the FAQ, which was 
for the imported version of the game. Although not much has changed, this is 
the second version of the FAQ. I am completely rewriting it from scratch... 
And although it means a delay before it has everything in it... It means that 
it will be four thousand times as good!

Like before, if anyone has any suggestions or contributions (errors, tips, 
etc) you can email them to me! My email is ketay@comcast.net.

UPDATE: Before you send me any emails, be sure to check the FAQ section of the 
guide!

NOTE: If you send me some info on something, you may NOT get credit for it, 
because I work on this often, and I may have already added what you send me. 
It just doesn't get updated on FAQ sites everyday, so you may not see the 
changes yet. Also if someone else emails me something first, they are the one 
who gets credit. ^.-

NOTE 2: If you are emailing me for help on the game, make sure you have search 
this WHOLE faq before you email me for help. I will ignore any emails that 
have questions which I know are answered in this guide. I will also ignore any 
questions that don't include enough detail. If you have a question, do not ask 
me: "How do I get a tool thing?" I will have no clue what you are talking 
about. Also, I tend to respond better to emails that use proper grammar, along 
with good spelling and no chatspeak. For example, this is an email I would 
probably ignore:

 _____________________________________________
|                                             |
| hi i need help!!!111 hOW DO I GET A TOOL    |
| THING???!?!?!??                             |
|_____________________________________________|

And here is an example of an email that is visually pleasing, thus making me 
happy. ^.-

 _____________________________________________
|                                             |
| Dear Ketay,                                 |
|                                             |
| I am currently having problems with the     |
| game Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town. |
| I have thoroughly searched your guide but  |
| I cannot find info on where to obtain the   |
| item "White Grass". If you could help me in |
| any way, that would be great.               |
|                                             |
| Sincerely,                                  |
| Your Name                                   |
|_____________________________________________|

See how much better that one is? Does it have to be that formal? Well... No. 
But it has to be easily readable without me having to lower my IQ down by 50 
points.

The reason that I would like your emails to be in a better form is because 
there is only so much time in the day. I'm still in high school as of me 
writing this (Sophomore) and I'm usually piled on with a lot of homework. 
Also, I have been getting a large amount of emails that wouldn't be worth my 
time to answer. So please, please don't send me emails asking things that are 
clearly stated in the guide MULTIPLE times. Thanks. =)

| b. Why I'm Writing This                    |
\____________________________________________/

Why would a kid take dozens of hours of his free time to write a guide to help 
other people with the game? Well... I'm weird... Yes, that's right, I'm weird. 
^.- But it's also because I enjoy writing guides for games. I'm not the best 
writer though, which is why I wouldn't want to be a writer by profession 
(Video Game Programmer, Here I Come!) But, it's something to do in my free 
time that I enjoy, and is quite simple.

Also, all the emails I get thanking me for my help make me have a better day 
make me like to write guides. But I also do need help in writing guides, 
because I usually skip over things a lot, so be sure to send in your 
contributions!

| a. Storyline                               |
\____________________________________________/

Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town starts out with you visiting a farm. The 
Mayor stops by and tells you that the owner of the farm passed away recently, 
and he had left the farm to someone named what you name your character. You 
then remember back to when you were a little kid. You and your family lives in 
the city, but your family decides to take trip to the countryside. But you 
seem to have wandered off, and you happen to find yourself at a farm. As you 
enter you meet the owner of the farm, an old lonely man who has no children. 
Soon your parents arrive and say it's time to go, but the man says that he is 
lonely and would like some company, so he invites you to the stay for a few 
days. Your parents agree, and soon you're spending the time having fun with 
the man. One day while you are out alone you meet a mysterious girl who asks 
you to tell her about yourself. Then it's time to go, and the girl becomes sad 
because you're leaving already. But she says that she'll be waiting, and that 
she would like him to return. The man then gives you his address and asks you 
to keep in contact with him by writing to him. His final words are:

"I'll be waiting for your letter..."

With that you are transported back to the present day, and back to the mayor 
with the floaty hat. And thus begins your taking care of your new property.

| b. Controls                                |
\____________________________________________/

The controls for this game can get tedious, because each combination of 
buttons does something different. But with enough playing you'll have them 
down, and you'll no longer be whistling at people you are trying to give gifts 
to. (Unfortunately, I still do that. ^^)

combo aren't used much, so you'll have to take a second to think before you 
try to eat the item. You don't want to end up throwing the item away do you?

\____________________________________________/

As soon as you leave your house and take a look at your farming area, you may 
notice something wrong... There's nowhere to plant any crops! Now that will be 
a problem won't it? So what do we have to do? Well, we need to do some 
cleanup. But first we need to know what we have to deal with:


-=Weeds=-
  Info: These are the green things that look like little clumps of grass that 
are all over. The easiest way of getting rid of them is to pick them up and 
throw them. This creates a problem though, because it gives you a lower chance 
of catching fish. The better way to get rid of them is to use your sickle. 
Using your sickle allows you to quickly cut down the weeds. If you upgrade 
your sickle later on, you can cut down more than one weed at once, and if you 
progress far enough, you'll be able to create a whirlwind that will cut down 
all the weeds on the screen. The only problem with using the sickle is that it 
takes energy to use the sickle. However, if you do use the sickle, it gives it 
experience, which will allow you to cut down the weeds faster.
  Required Tool: None / Normal Sickle
  Game Info: Grow in Spring and Fall. Should be removed.
  Image: Green clumps of grass.
  Availability: Located only on your farm. They grow back randomly in the 
Spring and Fall.
  Usefulness: None

-=Stones=-
  Info: These are the small rocks that are littered about your farm. If you 
pick them up and press A, it will only result in you setting it down. To get 
rid of the stones without using energy though, you can take the stone to a 
body of water (such as the river near your farm) and throw it in. However, it 
is smart to use your hammer to get rid of them so as to get hammer EXP 
(experience). If you upgrade your tool to the Mythic level, you can destroy 
all the stones in the current map in a single blow.
  Required Tool: None / Normal Hammer
  Game Info: Can be smashed with or placed on tillable land.
  Image: Smallest gray rock.
  Availability: Located on your farm and in the mine (the stones found in the 
mine are different than in the farm, as they cannot be picked up with your 
hands. The mine ones will always be there, but once you destroy the ones on 
your farm they don't come back.
  Usefulness: Can be used to until tilled land. They are also a VERY good 
fence, because they don't rot in the rain.

-=Rocks=-
  Info: These large stones are a pain at the beginning because you can't break 
them with a level 1 hammer. Once you obtain a higher level hammer you can 
destroy these though. However, you aren't able to pick these up.
  Required Tool: Copper Hammer
  Game Info: Your hammer can't crush it unless it's LV2 or higher.
  Image: Medium gray rock (not clumped).
  Availability: Located only on your farm. Once gone they cannot be recovered.
  Usefulness: They get in your way? -_-;;

-=Boulders=-
  Info: These are also a pain because you can't destroy them until you have an 
even higher level hammer. The only purpose they serve is to annoy you. =)
  Required Tool: Silver Hammer
  Game Info: Your hammer can't crush this stone unless it's LV3 or higher.
  Image: Large clumped gray rocks.
  Availability: Located on your farm and on Mother's Hill. The farm ones do 
not come back, but the Mother Hill ones do.
  Usefulness: Blocking your path. ^.-

-=Branches=-
  Info: These are one of the few useful things on your farm. If you cut them 
up with your axe you will gain 1 piece of lumber. Lumber is a VERY useful 
resource because you need lumber to add onto your house. If you ever have 
extra time, you should cut down the ones not on your farm to get the lumber. 
Be careful though, unlike the rock, if you put it anywhere that isn't on your 
tillable land, it will disappear! O.O
  Required Tool: None / Normal Ax
  Game Info: Material for lumber. Can be places on tillable land.
  Image: Looks like a small brown log.
  Availability: Located on your farm and the forest. The farm ones do not come 
back, but the ones in the forest do.
  Usefulness: They give you lumber, a very useful resource.

-=Stumps=-
  Info: The best not good thing that you can find on your farm (good adjective 
usage eh?). These require you to have a level 2 axe to chop, and take multiple 
chops, but they give you a whopping 6 lumber. You want to chop the stumps 
located in the forest whenever you can! Soon you'll end up wishing you had an 
infinite supply of lumber if you don't get some everyday.
  Required Tool: Copper Axe
  Game Info: Your axe can't cut this stump unless it's LV2 or higher.
  Image: Looks like a... well... a stump... Believe it or not. XD
  Availability: Located on your farm, in the forest, and Mother's Hill. They 
all come back once you go to sleep, except the ones located on your farm.
  Usefulness: They give you six lumber. And you want all the lumber you can 
get!


Okay, now that we got an idea of what's located on our farm, and how to get 
rid of it, we can start the cleaning process. The best idea is to just start 
off by cleaning off what is only in the upper left corner, allowing you to 
till 4 3x3 patches with 1 space between them all. Here’s an example:

Upper Left Of Field
\
 _\|
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]

[o] Untilled Land
[x] Tilled Land

From that you can see that a square the size of 8x8 should be free in the 
upper left corner of the field. HOWEVER, this is not always possible because 
at the beginning there are stumps, rocks, and boulders in your way. Because of 
this you may have to go a little ways away from the upper left corner. For 
example, this is what you may end up having:

Upper Left Of Field
\
 _\|
    [o][R][R][o][o][o][S][S][o][o][o][o][o]
    [o][R][R][o][o][o][S][S][o][R][R][o][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][R][R][o][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o][o][o][o][o][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o][o]
    [x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][x][x][x][o][o]
    [B][B][o][x][x][x][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]
    [B][B][o][x][x][x][o][S][S][o][o][o][o]
    [o][o][o][x][x][x][o][S][S][o][o][o][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]
    [o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]

[o] Untilled Land
[x] Tilled Land
[R] Rock
[B] Boulder
[S] Stump

As you can see, you have to work around them, to find a place for 4 3x3 
patches. TILLING THE LAND IS NOT PART OF CLEANING however. The tilled land is 
just to show you how it will be once it's planted, and to show you how much 
room you need.

Once you get the upper left done, on the days afterwards if you have extra 
time and energy you should spend it clearing your field. Just be sure that if 
you want an invincible fence, you should keep all your stones so you can make 
a fence with them.  They act just like making a fence with lumber, but it 
takes no wood and never rots! A bargain in the HM world.

\____________________________________________/

Your toolbox is located in your farmhouse, and it stores all your tools, 
seeds, and other items that you aren't carrying. However, it cannot store 
perishable items such as stones, crops, and flowers. When looking in your 
toolbox, the screen looks like the following:

| |____________________________| |
|________________________________|


[A] Your equipped tool.
[B] Your tool pocket in your rucksack. At the beginning it will only show 2 
squares, but as you buy the larger rucksacks you will obtain more squares.
[C] The tools in your toolbox.
[D] Name of the selected tool.
[E] Description of the selected tool.
[F] The page you are on. You have 8 pages of tools with 8 slots on each space, 
allowing you to store a total of 64 tools. Although this seems like a lot, if 
you end of buying extra packs of the different types of seeds, and getting 
many of the 3 different types of gems, you will be surprised at how fast it 
fills up.

Now that you know how the box stores tools, lets take a look at each of the 
tools.

Note: To upgrade a tool it must be used a certain amount. The more you use it, 
the more the percentage goes up. The needed percentages for the upgrades are:

0% - Normal
100% - Copper
200% - Silver
300% - Gold
400% - Mystrile

If you have enough EXP to get to the next tool level however, it will not show 
your percentage. The bar going across tells you how far you are though.

Once you get to the Mystrile level it may seem that you are at the highest 
tool level, but theres still THREE more levels. Thats right, three more levels.

The first of those three levels is the cursed tools. These tools don't upgrade 
your current tools, they are stored as SEPARATE tools. These are SUPER 
powerful. So powerful they can destroy ALL the stumps on the current screen, 
or water a 13x6 rectangle. However, you can use them only about FIVE times 
before you run out of energy, and they also CANNOT BE UNEQUIPED without the 
help of Carter. To remove them you must pay Carter 1000G at the church in a 
confessional to get it off.

The cursed tools are very hard to get however. First of all you must have all 
six of your tools at the Mystrile level. Next, you must dig down in the Winter 
Mine to a specific level. To find the level for each tool check the chart 
below. Make sure that you save on the level BEFORE the one you are going to, 
just in case it isn't there. Many times you won't find the tool. Make sure 
that you break every rock and dig up every square on the mine level to find it.

To get the next level of a tool you must go through a tedious task of blessing 
it, to uncurse it. To find the specific task for each tools check the chart 
below.

Note: For the equip for 10 days you must equip it for ten days STRAIGHT. You 
may not equip it and re-equip it another time.

HINT: For the "Use 255 Times" ones you can cheat by using it 255 times at a 
festival. You have infinite energy at festivals so it makes it very easy, as 
to it's very hard being able to use it only 5 times a day normally.

Once you have all of the blessed tools you can find the Mythic stones in the 
Spring mine. You must dig down to level 60, and from there on out you can find 
a Mythic Stone. If you take it along with 50,000 gold and your cursed tool, 
Saibara can smith it into the strongest tools available... Mythic. These are 
even MORE powerful than the blessed and cursed tools, and allow you to water a 
31x15 square of plants, smash all the rocks on the screen, and more! Good luck 
on getting all 6 of these, it will take 30,000G and a LOT of time.

All of your tools start out at level 1, but you can upgrade them all quite 
easily. Once you have used it enough, on your status screen it will no longer 
show the percentage and it will show the next one or more stones that you can 
use to upgrade it below the bar. For example:
 ___________________
|___________________|
(C)(S)(G)

(C) Copper Ore
(S) Silver Ore
(G) Gold Ore

The highest level ore it shows is the highest level you can upgrade it to. If 
you use it enough without upgrading, you can skip a few levels and upgrade it 
directly multiple levels. The best way to utilize this is to use your watering 
can a lot without upgrading it and then direction skip to upgrading it to 
silver or gold. This way you don't waste money and time upgrading it to copper.

To upgrade a tool take it to Saibara in the town. He's the first house located 
on the map directly above your farm. For 1000 to 5000 + one of the metal ore 
you need he will upgrade your tool. It may take a few days, so don't have him 
upgrade at a time that you will be needing the tool.

\____________________________________________/

Just by looking at the box for the game you can easily tell that this game is 
based upon farming. Yeah, there are ways to live and obtain money without ever 
even plowing your land, but lets face it, farming is the best way to get 
money. But before you begin you will need some area on your farm to plant 
with. If you'll look back to "Clearing Your Farm" (Section III. a) you'll find 
out how to get rid of those evil rocks and stumps.

Now onto planting. Before you can toss the seeds into the ground and water 
them, you'll need to till the land. To till the land you'll need to retrieve 
your Hoe from your toolbox. Now when you till, you want to make a pattern so 
that you can go in and out of your crops and water them all. To do this you 
will want to make a "C" shape. Here is an example of one way to till the land:

[o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]
[o][x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
[o][x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
[o][x][o][x][o][x][o][x][o]
[o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]
[o][x][o][x][o][x][o][x][o]
[o][x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
[o][x][x][x][o][x][x][x][o]
[o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o][o]

[o] Untilled Land
[x] Tilled Land

When you till like this you can walk between all the patches of vegetables, 
and also water them all. If you till all 9 squares and don't leave one open, 
there will be no way to water the crop in the middle.

However, once you get your Silver Watering Can you will be able to water the 
crop in the middle. But if you are planting crops that regrow then you may 
want to leave an open slot so that you can pick the middle crop without 
cutting down one of your plants.

TIP (Silver Watering Can Or Better Is Required):
To make the most out of a bag of regrowable seeds, till all 9 squares in a 3x3 
pattern and sow the seeds. Then as the season progresses water them all and 
pick the outside 8 plants and leave the middle one. On the last harvest of the 
season pick the outside 8 vegetables and then use your sickle to cut down one 
and pick the middle one. Although this only gets you a little extra money, it 
can add up if you plant a lot of crops.

TIP 2:
At the beginning of the game your horse won't be big enough to use his saddle 
as a shipping bin, and you won't have the basket, so the only thing you can 
put your crops in is the shipping bin outside your house. If you have the 
largest rucksack this won't matter much, but if you plant all of your crops in 
the upper left corner of the farm, you won't have to worry about going as far 
to ship the crops or refill your watering can.

Now that you've tilled your land it's time to fetch some seeds. To get seeds 
you'll have to visit the Supermarket, located in the northern section of 
Mineral Town. The store is open from 9AM to 5PM everyday except for festival 
days, Tuesdays, and Sundays. If you enter you will find a table in the middle 
with some bags of seeds on it. Examine it and it will give you a list of seeds 
that you can buy. To find all the info about the seeds check the next section.

Once you have boughten your seeds you can use them. When you use a bag of 
seeds you will throw them up and they will land on the square you are on and 
the 8 surrounding squares. For example:

[o][o][o][o][o]
[o][x][x][x][o]
[o][x][C][x][o]
[o][x][x][x][o]
[o][o][o][o][o]

[o] Tilled Land
[x] Seeded Land
[C] Your Character (Seeds Also Here)

Because of this you should always stand in the middle of your 3x3 formation 
when you sow the seeds. Once you have planted your seeds you will need to 
water them. Watering them may get tedious at first, but once you upgrade your 
watering can enough, it will be as easy as holding down the (B) button for a 
few seconds and watching the water fly. But when you begin you can only do 
once square at a time.

To begin equip your Watering Can and go to a body of water. You can do it at a 
river, the sea, or the pond on your farm. Then go and stand facing the square 
you would like to water and hit the (B) button. This will water the square (or 
squares) directly in front of you. After a while you will run out of water and 
will need to refill your watering can. You do not need to water your crops 
when it is raining outside. The rain gives you a break and lets you have time 
to do other things.

Once you have watered your crops, you will have the continue watering them for 
a few days. The amount of time varies depending on what vegetable you are 
growing. Once the crop has completely grown you will be able to pick it and 
put it in your shipping bin. Then at 5 PM Zach will pick up the items and pay 
you for everything in your bin.

If you pick a crop that is a regrowable crop, it will go back a few stages, 
and you'll be able to continue watering it until it produces more food. If 
it's a one time growth crop then it will disappear and you'll have room to 
replant more seeds in that area.

Be careful though, if you have crops that are growing and the seasons change, 
all your crops will die and you'll have to use your sickle to cut them down!

I've been getting dozens of emails on the same subject, so I decided to add a 
FAQ to answer many of those questions. Many of them will point you to other 
parts of the guides, if I recently added that, because it's better to redirect 
you instead of stating it twice.

The rock on Mother's Hill cannot be broken by anything below a cursed tool. 
Meaning you need a cursed, blessed, or mythic tool to smash the rock. For info 
on getting those, check the tools section of the guide.

_______ won't get a higher heart color!? How do I get her to like me!?
------------------------------------------------------
The girls in this game are harder to woo than in the other games. The best way 
to get about it is to give them presnts that they like. The easiest girl to 
get to like you is Karen, because you can buy a few hundred flours from her 
shop to get her level up. However, it gets a bit harder after the blue heart. 
Popuri likes eggs, so it's best to upgrade your coop, get 8 chickens, and give 
her a few eggs everyday. The rest of the girls have a variety of tastes. Just 
remember to be patient, talk to them everyday, and give them 1 - 2 gifts 
everyday.

Cliff left! How do I get him back!?
------------------------------------------------------
If he leaves there is no way to get him to come back. However, you can restart 
your game and prevent him from leaving the second time. To get him to stay you 
must ask him to help pick berries for the Aja Winery on Autumn 14th. Then go 
to the Winery on the 15th at 10:00AM and pick the berries. Cliff will then be 
offered a full time job there. Then he will have enough money to continue 
living in the inn in Mineral Town.

Gotz won't build anything for me!
------------------------------------------------------
Sometimes Gotz will go into a slump and he will not build anything. You must 
give him gifts for awhile to get him to like you enough. It can take awhile, 
so try to give him a couple things he likes every single day.

------------------------------------------------------
How do I carry more items in my Rucksack!?
------------------------------------------------------
You can buy a larger rucksack in the Supermarket for 3,000G. It will hold 4 
items instead of 2. Then one week later they will get the largest rucksack in 
stock and you can buy it for 5,000G. This holds EIGHT items, which is a very 
helpful item to get early on. It's especially helpful since the beginning of 
the game requires you to scavenge for items to sell until you get enough to 
live off of growing plants
