    (2.) Version History*
    
    Version 1.00 (2/15/05-5/22/05)
    Started. Put in just about everything about this game. It took me many hours
    of work to do this including one 2 month-long break. For right now I am done
    but when I get around to it, I will add a few more things.
    
    Version 1.1 (6/2/20)
    I fixed a few mistakes I made. Added a few things.
    
    Version 1.2 (7/16/05)

    a few mistakes.
    
    Version 1.5 (12-16-09) 
    Lost my game for a few years and just bought it again. Added the random 
    Character events, but not all of them, some I have yet to discover.

    (3.) | Introduction* |
          \_____________/
    
    I recently submitted a gift guide. It got rejected because someone made one
    before I submitted mine. While I was putting information into it, I kept
    thinking of more stuff I wanted to put that didn't really have anything to do
    with gifts. So, since they didn't accept my gift guide I decided to make a full
    guide. This will only be my second guide so far. Since it is only my second I
    will appreciate any helpful hints, corrections, questions, comments,
    complaints, or information I haven't included in this guide yet, through email.
    I hope this guide includes what you are looking for, if not, check again later
    and it might be there.

    (4.) | In The Beginning...* |
          \..................../
    
    The story starts out with you wandering on to an old man's farm. He invites you
    and your family to stay on the farm for vacation. Right before you leave he
    asks you to write to him. 
    
    Years later you come back to the farm looking for the old man because he has
    not written you back in a while. When you get there the mayor tells you that
    the old man has passed on. He also tells you that the old man has left you his
    farm in his will. You have a short conversation with the mayor and then
    suddenly you wake up in the house on the farm the next day.

    Your character, of course, is you. You get to name him and give him a birthday.
    You also get to name his dog and the farm. Your character's history is in the
    city with your parents. He grew up in the city. A chance meeting with an old
    man while on a vacation leads to him getting the farm

    Your rucksack starts out with 3 spaces to keep tools and 3 spaces for items

    You can buy bigger rucksacks at the supermarket. The first one you can buy
    costs 3000g and increases your holding capacity to 5 spaces on each side. The
    second and last one you can buy increases the holding capacity to 9 spaces on
    each side.

    ~~Stamina~~
    Stamina is the amount of Healthy Energy you have. As you work throughout the
    day, your stamina will go down. You wake up every morning with about 100
    stamina points. Doing different things takes away different amounts of stamina.
    Some tools take away more than others.
    
    ~Your character will show signs letting you know about how much stamina you
    have left.
    -When he wipes his forehead, he has about 50 points left.
    -When he slumps over a little bit, he has about 25 points left.
    -When he sits down he has about 10 points left.
    -When he falls down completely he has 0 points left.
    
    ~When you eat power berries your max stamina will increase permanently by 5
     points
    
    
    ~~Fatigue~~
    
    Fatigue is how tired your character is. After you use all of your stamina you
    will start to get fatigue. The number of fatigue points you get will increase
    with the amount of work you do after you use all of you stamina. If you get
    50 points of fatigue your character will pass out.
    
    ~Your character will show signs letting you know about how much fatigue you
     have.
    -When he shakes his head, he has about 25 points.
    -When his face turns blue he has about 40 points.
    -When he passes out he has about 50 points.
    
    ~When you eat the Blue Mystic Berry(SEE POWER BERRIES SECTION) the max amount
     of fatigue you can get without passing out will increase.
    
    ~When you pass out you will end up at the Clinic, and it will be the next day.

    (6.) | Getting Started* |
          \________________/
    
    On your first day you need to explore the town, meet the villagers, get used to
    the map, and plant your first seeds. You should start buy heading out the North
    exit of your farm. Go to as many buildings as you can and meet all of the
    villagers you find in them. As you make your way around the village you will
    come by the store in the middle of the most Northern part of the village. You
    need to go here in order to buy seeds to plant on your farm. 
    
    Seeds will be the big moneymaker on your farm for at least the first few
    seasons and maybe the first year. As you enter the store you should see the
    seeds in the middle of the room(for other information on the store go to the
    VILLAGE section). Walk up to them and press "A".  You have a choice of Turnips,
    Potatoes, Cucumbers, and Grass. Do not worry about the grass for now(for
    information on it go to the ANIMALS section). You have 500g and can buy 2-3
    packages of seeds. It is your choice to which ones you buy, but I advise that
    you go with buying 3 packages of Turnip seeds, seeing as they grow the fastest
    and cost the least. You can make a pretty good profit off of turnips compared
    to the other seeds(see CROPS section for more details). Once you buy them they
    will be put into the tools part of your rucksack, unless it is full, then it
    will be sent to you toolbox(see YOUR FARM section for more details).
    
    Now explore the rest of the village and return to your farm when you want to
    plant your seeds.(Go to the CROPS section to learn how to plant your crops).

    (7.) | Your Farm* |
          \__________/
    
    On your farm you start out with your small house, a mailbox, a shipping bin,
    a barn, a stable, a wood bin, a chicken coop, an apple tree with a beehive, a
    water hole, and a huge field.

    A. House:
    
    Your house includes a bed, a diary, a tv, a table, and a toolbox. You will be
    able to get more stuff in your house once you expand it. Every Morning you will
    wake up at the table and automatically eat something for breakfast. Your
    toolbox already has 5 tools in it. The tools are: watering can, hoe, hammer,
    axe and sickle(see TOOLS section for more information on them). To use the tv
    simply walk up to it and press "A". There are four stations. Press UP to get
    the weather station, RIGHT to get the upcoming events station, DOWN to get the
    life on the farm station and LEFT to get the miscellaneous station(see TV SHOWS
    section for more information). The bed is self explanatory. Use the diary to
    save your game.
    
    
    B. Mailbox:
    
    You will get mail in your mailbox every once in a while. You will usually get
    mail at the beginning of the season, but you will also recieve mail for
    announcements from the villagers. 
    
    
    C. Shipping Bin:
    
    Once you leave your house on the first day, Zack will explain the shipping bins
    to you.
    
    
    D. Dog House:
    
    This really serves no purpose because your dog never uses it. It's only for
    decoration.
    
    
    E. Barn:
    
    You will use your barn to keep cows and sheep in once you can afford to buy
    them. You will find eight spots to put food(fodder) in to feed your cows and
    sheep. You will also find a spot at the top area of the barn where the food is
    stored(see ANIMALS section for more information). There is also a shipping bin
    in the barn.
    
    F. Wood Bin:
    
    Your Wood bin is between the barn and stable. When you chop wood it will
    automatically go to the bin. You can take it out buy walking up to it and
    pressing "A".
    
    
    G. Stable:
    
    The only reason you have a stable is to keep your horse in on
    rainy days(when you get it, see ANIMALS section).
    
    
    H. Apple Tree:
    
    Your apple tree will have a beehive that you can get honey from everyday. You
    can ship honey. It will also produce apples during the fall.
    
    
    I. Water Hole:
    
    Use it to fill your watering can.
    
    
    J. Chicken Coop:
    
    You will use your chicken coop to keep chickens in once you can afford to buy
    them. You will find four spots to put chicken feed in to feed your chickens.
    You will also find an incubator to put eggs in so they can hatch into baby
    chicks(see ANIMAL section). You will also find a spot where the chicken feed is
    stored. There is also a shipping bin in the chicken coop.
    
    
    K. Huge Field:
    
    You can use your field to plants crops in. You can also use it to plant grass
    to let your cows and sheep graze in(see ANIMALS section).
    
    L. River:

                                     ~~~~~~v~~~~~~
                             
    You start out with five basic tools that you can find in your toolbox when you
    start the game include the Watering Can, Hoe, Hammer, Axe, Sickle, and
    pedometer.
    
    
    Watering Can:
    
    Used to water crops.
    
    
    Hoe:
    
    Used to till the soil in your field before you plant your seeds. Also used in
    the mines to dig(see MINING section).
    
    
    Hammer:
    
    Used to smash rocks. Also used to flatten tilled soil. Also used to smash
    ruined fences.
    
    
    Axe:
    
    Used to chop sticks and stumps to collect lumber.
    
    
    Sickle:
    
    Used to cut weeds. Also used to cut grass you've grown and turn it into fodder
    for your cows and sheep.
    
    
    Pedometer:
    
    Used to record the number of steps you take.(Kindof useless)
    
    
    
    (9b.) Extra Tools
    
    There are more tools you get that you don't start out with. They are the
    fishing pole, brush, milker, wool sheers, and a bell.
    
    
    Fishing Pole:
    
    To get it you must have one open space in your rucksack for a tool. Then you
    must go to the beach and enter Zack's house. There will be a cutscene(see
    CUTSCENES section) and Zack will give it to you. If a different cutscene
    happens, just exit after it is done and reenter. 
    Used to catch fish(see FISHING section).
    
    
    Brush:
    
    Buy it from the Blacksmith.
    Used to keep a nice, healthy coat on your horse, cows, and sheep.
    
    
    Milker:
    
    Buy it from the Blacksmith.
    Used to get milk from your cow.
    
    
    Wool Sheers:
    
    Buy it from the Blacksmith.
    Used to cut wool off of sheep.
    
    
    Bell:
    
    Buy it from Yodel Farm(see VILLAGE section).
    Used to call your cows and sheep. They will come to you when you ring it.
    
    
    
    (9c.) Leveling Up
    
    All of them start out as normal, but as you use certain tools more and more,
    you get more experienced with them and can eventually level them up. The tools
    you can level up are the Watering Can, Hoe, Hammer, Axe, Sickle, and fishing
    pole. To level them up you must take them to the blacksmith and he will do it
    for you. Once you get 100% experience you can level it up the first time, 200%
    for the next level, then 300%, then 400% to get it to the last level. In order
    to level them up you must get ore from the Spring Mine(see MINING section).
    
    -Once you get 100% you need to take the tool, a copper ore and 1000g to the
    blacksmith.
    -When you get 200% you need to take the tool, a silver ore and 2000g to the
    blacksmith.
    -When you get 300% you need to take the tool, a gold ore and 3000g to the
    blacksmith.
    -When you get 400% you need to take the tool, a mystrile ore and 5000g to the
    blacksmith.
    
    Any time you level up a tool you can charge it by pressing and holding the "B"
    button. Charging tools will produce greater effect on the use of them.
    
    
    Effects of Leveling Up:
    
    X represents squares affected by tool.
    
    
    --Watering Can: Water a greater amount of squares at one time.

    (9d.) Cursed Tools
    
    
    Once you level up all of the tools to Mystrile level you will be able to find
    the Cursed tools in the winter mine(see MINING section). 
    
    Cursed Tools are more powerful versions of your tools that, once equiped,
    cannot be unequipped unless removed by Carter or Blessed.
    
    Once you get them you will be able to uncurse them. After you uncurse them you
    can upgrade them 1 more time by getting the Mythic stone from the Spring Mine
    (see MINING section) and taking it, the blessed tool, and 20,000g to the
    Blacksmith.

    (10.) |Crops* |
           \_____/
    
    
    Planting crops will probably be your biggest money maker for at least the first
    couple of years. You can get seeds from the supermarket. Each bag of seeds
    takes up a 3x3 section adding up to 9 spaces.
    
                                __                __

                               \S_/              \_C/
    
    
    There are a total of 15 different crops. There are 5 for every season except
    Winter, you can not grow crops in Winter. The crops are all different in the
    way that they take different amounts of time to grow and there selling prices
    are different. Some crops will grow back without you having to plant more seeds
    after you harvest them. You can also plant flowers, I will list them at the end
    of this section. Here is a list of all of the crops including their name,
    season, time it takes them to grow, if they regrow and time it takes them to
    regrow, and the total profit you make from every bag of seeds:

    There are 3 types of seeds listed above that you will not be able to purchase
    at the supermarket until you meet a requirment. They are the Strawberry,
    Pumpkin, and Spinach. To get the Strawberry seeds you must ship 100 Turnips,
    100 potatoes, and 100 Cucumbers. To get the Pumpkin seeds you must ship 100
    Onions, 100 Tomatoes, and 100 stalks of Corn. To get the Spinach seeds you must
    ship 100 Carrots, 100 Eggplants, and 100 Sweet Potatoes. Once you meet the
    requirement for each one they will be available for you to purchase at the
    supermarket during the season that they are planted in.

    Flowers only serve a couple of purposes in the game. The first purpose is the
    most important one, gifts for girls. Depending on which girl you are going for,
    flowers can be VERY helpful when trying to get her to like you.  You can find
    the flowers in the wild, but you can also plant them yourself by buying seeds
    from Won. Here is a list of the flowers, their seasons, where you can find
    them, and how long it takes for them to grow if you plant them yourself:
    
    
    Moon Drop
    Season: Spring
    Found: There are 2 by the woodcutter's house and several on Mother's Hill.
    Grown: It takes 6 days for them to grow if you plant them.
    
    Toy Flower
    Season: Spring
    Found: There are several on Mother's Hill.
    Grown: It takes 12 days for them to grow if you plant them.
    
    Pink Cat
    Season: Summer
    Found: There are 2 by the Hot Spring and several on Mother's Hill.
    Grown: It takes 6 days for them to grow if you plant them.
    
    Magic Red Grass
    Season: Fall
    Found: There are 2 by the Woodcutter's house and several on Mother's Hill
    Grown: It takes 9 days for them to grow if you plant them.
    
    
    :::::Special Flowers:::::
    
    There are 2 flowers that are hard to come by unless you know how to find them.
    
    Red Magic Red Grass
    Season: Fall
    Found: There is only 1 way to find them, and that is to plant them yourself.
           You need to buy the Magic Red Grass seeds from Won. Then go to your farm
           and plant them. Most of the time the flowers will grow and turn out
           blue, but every once in a while some will turn out red. An easy way to
           get them to turn out red is to save your game right before you plant
           them. Once you have planted them, go to the map screen of your farm.
           scroll around until you find the spot where you planted them. You will
           see pictures showing where they have been planted. If the flowers are
           blue then they will show up blue. If they are red then they will show
           up red. If none of them show up red, then just load and plant them again
           until they turn up red.
    Purpose: The purpose of the red magic red flower is that you can use it to make
             recipes. Unlike other flowers, you can sell it.
    
    
    The White Winter Flower
    Season: Winter
    Found: This flower is VERY hard to find. First you must be in your 5th year.
           Second you must be friends with Basil and Ellen. Third you must go to
           Ellen's house and trigger an event where Ellen tells you about the
           flower. Fourth you must go to the Peak of Mother's Hill at night after
           you have triggered the event. There you will see the White Winter Flower
    
    
    
      //////~~~~~~~The rest of this section will be telling you how~~~~~~~~\\\\\\
                            to plant all of your crops.
    
    
    (10c.) Clearing Your Field
    
    Before you can plant your crops you must clear some space in your field to
    plant them. In your field there are weeds, sticks, stones, tree stumps, big
    rocks, and boulders. To get rid of weeds you can use your sickle or simply pick
    it up and throw it. To get rid of sticks, use your axe on them. I recommend
    that you do not destroy the stone because you can use them to make a very
    strong fence compared to a wooden fence(see ANIMALS section). If you want to
    use them later to make a fence, just pick them up and set them down in a part
    of the field that your not using. If you are not going to use them, use the
    hammer to smash them. You can not get rid of tree stumps and big rocks until
    you level your axe and hammer up to level 1. You cannot get rid of boulders
    until you level your hammer up to level 2.
    
    
    
    (10d.) Tilling Soil 
    
    
    Before you plant your seeds you must till the soil with the hoe. When you
    lay the seeds out they will always be spread in a 3X3 pattern so that is the
    pattern you must till. Until you get your watering can leveled up to level 3
    you will not be able to reach the center square with the watering can so it
    would be best to till in the following patterns so you can reach all of the
    plants(X represents a tilled square):
    
               XXX            X X
               X X     or     XXX
               XXX            XXX
    
    Personally I think the first one works the best.
    
    
    
    (10e.) Planting The Seeds
    
    
    Once you have tilled the soil you can plant the seeds. Place the seeds in the
    tool section of your rucksack. Then equip them. Make sure you are in the very
    center of the 3X3 pattern then use the seeds like a tool to plant them. If you
    did it right you should see little dots on the tilled soil.
    
    
    
    (10f.) Watering Your Crops
    
    
    Once you have planted the seeds you can water them. If you haven't already
    filled your watering can with water, do so at the water hole by the field. Once
    it has water in it you can water your crops by standing next to the square you
    want to water and pressing "B". If you have done it right the square should be
    darker than it was before. Make sure you water your crops everyday. You do not
    need to water when it is raining.
    
    
    
    (10g.) Harvesting Crops
    
    
    You will know that your crops are ready to be harvested when you can pick them
    up out of the ground. When you pick them up simply put them in the shipping
    bin. Now you are ready to plant more crops.
    
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
           /^^^^^^^^\
    (11.) | Animals* |
           \________/
    
    
    After a couple of years your animals will become your biggest money maker. But
    you must properly take care of them to make the full possible profit.
    
    
    (11a.) Your Dog
    
    You get the dog at the beginning of the game, and you get to name him. When the
    game starts he is just a puppy but will be fully grown at the beginning of the
    fall. When he is fully grown, you can enter him into the Beach day contest.
    
    Your dog does not serve many purposes. You don't have to take care of him. The
    only purpose he really serves is on Beach day. If you win the beach day contest
    then you get a power berry.
    
    --Taking Care of him--
    The only thing you have to do to take care of him is bring him inside when it
    rains. To get him to like you more, simply pick him up and put him down again.
    
    
    
    (11b.) Your Horse
    
    You get the horse during the first few days of the game. Barley should show up
    at your house within the first week of the game. He will ask you to take care
    of the horse. If you accept you will be able to name it. Your horse will be
    fully grown exactly one year after you get him. Then you can enter him into the
    horse races
    
    Your horse serves a couple of helpful purposes. When he is fully grown you will
    be able to ride him around your farm. He will also have a shipping bag on his
    back. You will also be able to enter him into the horse race to win a power
    berry.
    
    --Taking Care of Him--
    All you have to do is brush him, talk to him, and put him in the barn when it
    is raining. 
    
    About a year after you get your horse, Barley will come to check if you are
    taking care of it properly. If you have 6+ hearts you can keep the horse,
    but if you have less than 6 hearts will take care of it for another year.
    
    (11c.) Chickens
    
    In order to get chickens you must go to the poultry farm and buy one. It will
    be about 1500g. You get to name it when you buy it. When you buy a chicken, it
    is also a good idea to buy some food for it. Which is 10g a piece.
    
    You only have to buy one chicken because once it lays an egg you can put that
    egg into the incubator and the egg will hatch after 3 days. It will be born
    into a chick and takes about 8 days for it to become fully grown.
    
    
    --Taking Care of Them--
    To take care of them you must feed each one once a day. If you cannot afford
    food for them then you can keep them outside for them to eat worms. You must
    take them back inside if it is raining.
    
    Your chickens will produce eggs for you when they are fully grown. These eggs
    will become more valuable as your chickens start to like you more. Here is the
    value of eggs and the number of hearts the chicken must have to produce the
    egg:
    
    Regular Egg-0-3 hearts
    
    Good Egg-4-7 Hearts
    
    Excellent Egg-8-10 hearts
    
    
    --GOLDEN EGGs
    Your Chicken will also produce golden eggs if you enter it into the chicken
    festival and win. If you win and the chicken does not have at least 8 hearts
    it will not produce golden eggs until it has the 8 hearts.
    
    
    --P EGGS
    Your chicken will be able to produce p size eggs after you meet 3 requirements.
    You must have 8 hearts or more for it, you must have won the Chicken Festival,
    and you must have kept your chickens outside for a total of 600 game hours or
    30 days.
    
    
    --X Eggs
    X Eggs are completely random and rare. Your chicken must be producing P size
    eggs. Every once in a while it might lay a X egg but it doesn't happen very
    often.
    
    
    
    (11d.) Cows
    
    In order to get cows you must go to the yodel farm and buy one. It will
    be about 5000g. You get to name it when you buy it. When you buy a cow, it
    is also a good idea to buy some food for it. Which is 20g a piece.
    
    You only have to buy one cow because after it becomes fully grown you can
    impregnate it, although I do not suggest it. It only costs 3000g to get it
    pregnant, but it takes 20 days for it to be born, and another 20 for it to
    become fully grown, and you can't milk the cow while its pregnant. So I suggest
    just to buy the cows instead of impregnating them. It produces milk so you can
    milk it once a day.
    
    (NOTE: YOU MUST BUY THE MILKER FROM THE BLACKSMITH IN ORDER TO MILK THE COW)
    
    --Taking Care of Them--
    To take care of them you must brush them and talk to them once a day, and feed
    each one once a day. If you cannot afford food for them then you must plant
    some grass in your field for them to eat and put them outside. You must take
    them back inside if it is raining. You can grow your own food for them by
    planting grass and cutting it when it is fully grown.
    
    Your cows will produce milk for you when they are fully grown. The milk 
    will become more valuable as your cows start to like you more. Here is the
    value of milk and the number of hearts the cow must have to produce the milk:
    
    Regular Milk-0-3 hearts
    
    Medium Milk-4-7 Hearts
    
    Large Milk-8-10 hearts
    
    
    --GOLDEN MILK
    Your Cow will also produce golden milk if you enter it into the cow
    festival and win. If you win and the cow does not have at least 8 hearts
    it will not produce golden milk until it has the 8 hearts.
    
    
    --P Milk
    Your cow will be able to produce p size milk after you meet 3 requirements.
    You must have 8 hearts or more for it, you must have won the Cow Festival,
    and you must have kept your cow outside for a total of 600 game hours or
    30 days.
    
    
    --X Milk
    X Milk is completely random and rare. Your cow must be producing P size milk.
    Every once in a while it might produce a X milk but it doesn't happen very
    often.
    
    
    
    (11d.) Sheep
    
    
    In order to get sheep you must go to the yodel farm and buy one. It will
    be about 4000g. You get to name it when you buy it. When you buy a sheep, it
    is also a good idea to buy some food for it. Which is 20g a piece.
    
    You only have to buy one sheep because after it becomes fully grown you can
    impregnate it, although I do not suggest it. It only costs 3000g to get it
    pregnant, but it takes 20 days for it to be born, and another 20 for it to
    become fully grown, and you can't sheer the sheep while its pregnant. So I
    suggest just to buy the sheep instead of impregnating them. It produces wool
    so you can sheer it once a week.
    
    
    --Taking Care of Them--
    To take care of them you must brush them and talk to them once a day, and feed
    each one once a day. If you cannot afford food for them then you must plant
    some grass in your field for them to eat and put them outside. You must take
    them back inside if it is raining. You can grow your own food for them by
    planting grass and cutting it when it is fully grown.
    
    (NOTE: YOU MUST BUY THE SHEERS FROM THE BLACKSMITH IN ORDER TO SHEER THE SHEEP)
    
    Your sheep will produce wool for you when you buy them. The wool will become
    more valuable as your sheep start to like you more. Here is the value of wool
    and the number of hearts the sheep must have to produce the wool:
    
    Regular Wool-0-3 hearts
    
    Medium Wool-4-7 Hearts
    
    Large Wool-8-10 hearts
    
    
    --GOLDEN Wool
    Your cheep will also produce golden wool if you enter it into the sheep
    festival and win. If you win and the sheep does not have at least 8 hearts
    it will not produce golden wool until it has the 8 hearts.
    
    
    --P WOOL
    Your Sheep will be able to produce p size wool after you meet 3 requirements.
    You must have 8 hearts or more for it, you must have won the sheep Festival,
    and you must have kept your sheep outside for a total of 600 game hours or
    30 days.
    
    
    --X WOOl
    X wool is completely random and rare. Your sheep must be producing P size wool.
    Every once in a while it might produce a X wool but it doesn't happen very
    often.
    
    
    
    (11e.) Fences and Grass
    
    
    |-|-|-|-|-Fences-|-|-|-|-|
    
    If you are going to keep your animals outside it is a good idea to build a
    fence to put them in. The fence will keep wild dogs from attacking them and
    keep them from getting lost.
    
    Building a Fence: All you need to build a fence is wood and room in your field
                      To make a fence simply get a piece of wood from your woodbin
                      and put it on the ground somewhere on your field, now put
                      more beside that one and make a square shape to eclose the
                      animals.
    
    -Another more efficient way to build a fence is by using the small stones in
     your field instead of wood
    
    
    ///////////Grass////////////
    
    If you are going to keep your cows and sheep outside you will need to have full
    grown grass in your field for them to eat. 
    
    Growing Grass: You can buy grass seeds from the supermarket for 1000g. You grow
                   it just like you would grow any other crop except you don't have
                   to water it. It will grow on its own once you plant it. 
    
    --When it is full grown you can put your cows and sheep outside or you can cut
      the grass with your sickle for fodder. Once you cut the grass it will
      automatically go into your barn in the fodder container.

    Finding a wife is one of the main parts, if not, the most important part of the
    game. Giving gifts to girls increases their heart level(how much they like
    you). The heart levels in order are: Black, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow,
    Orange, and Red. Once it reaches red you can ask the girl to marry you.
    
    In order to get any of the girls to marry you, you must have met all of these
    requirements first.
    
    -Have the biggest house and the big bed.

    The Harvest Sprites are the most helpful characters in the game. If you become
    friends with them they will help you on your farm by Watering Plants,
    Harvesting Plants, and Taking Care of your animals. In order to get them to
    like you, you must become friends with you by giving them gifts. 
    
    Like your animals, they have a heart meter that lets you know how much they
    like you. To see their heart meter, go to the earnings menu and scroll until
    you see a menu that says Harvest Sprites at the top. It shows a list with all
    of their faces, beside each of their faces is their heart meter. They will
    offer to help you on your farm once they have 3-4 hearts.
    
    When they first start working on your farm, they will not be the best workers.
    In order for them to get better at their jobs you must do the following:
    
    -Get their heart meter higher
    -Play the mini games with them
    -Let them gain experience by working more

    with.

    of food to make. Go back home and make that type of food. Take it back to the

    Finding a wife is one of the main parts, if not, the most important part of the
    game. When you get married it's like beating the game. You even get the credits
    for the game in your mail the day after you get married.
    
    The girls you have to choose from are: Ann, Karen, Mary, Elli, and Popuri.
    (see CHARACTER section for information on them and gifts to give them.
    
    In order to get a girl to marry you, you must get her to fall in love with you.
    Giving gifts to girls increases their heart level(how much they like you). The
    heart levels in order are: Black, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red.
    Once it reaches red you can ask the girl to marry you. But it isn't that
    simple. You have to meet certain requirements to get married.
    
    1. Have the biggest house and the big bed.
    2. She must have a Red heart.
    3. You must buy the Blue feather.
    4. You have to have seen all of the heart events.(see CHARACTER EVENTS section)
    5. Then you must give her the Blue Feather.
    
    You will automatically get married 7 days after you give her the blue feather.
    You will not be able to do anything on the day of your wedding, so plan ahead
    and get the Harvest Sprites to take care of your animals and water your crops
    on that day.

    One season after you get married your wife will be complaining about feeling
    sick. She will go to the Doctor and he will tell her that she is pregnant. 3
    seasons later, your son will be born. On the day he is born you will not be
    able to do anything so plan ahead.
    
    Exactly one month after he is born you will wake up to your wife telling you
    that he fell or that he is sick. You will automatically go to the clinic and
    the Doctor will say that he's fine. You will not be able to do anything that
    day, so plan ahead.
    
    When he is born your wife will carry him around until he can walk, so you will
    not be able to talk to him or hold him. Exactly one year after he is born he
    will learn to walk and you will be able to talk to him and give him gifts.

    Mining is an important part of the game because you need it to fully progress
    in the game. When mining you can find useful ore, jewels you can sell, and even
    tools.
    
    
    ~~ When you enter a mine you will see rocks and dirt. If you smash the rocks
       with your hammer you will find ore, jewels, and even new tools(see TOOLS or
       WINTER MINE section). If you till the dirt with your hoe you will find gold,
       black grass, and stairs going down.
    
    ~~ LEVELS
       There is more than just one level in the mine. If you till the ground you
       can find stairs going down. If you walk into them it will ask if you want to
       go down or not. Obviously if you would like to go down choose "Yes". If you
       go down to the next level you can go back up by walking into the stairs that
       you went down on. NOTE: If you go back up the stairs it will automatically
       take you back to the surface, it will not take you to the level before the
       one you are on. You can find more rare and valuable items on the deeper
       levels. As far as I know the mines go down to level 255.
    
    
    ~~ SAVE/RELOAD TRICK
       You may notice that when you are looking for items that are on the lower
       levels, you are unable to get them because you get tired before you get to
       the level the items are on. The first solution to this is to take Bodigizer,
       Bodigizer XL, and Elli leaves with you

    The Spring Mine is located by the Hot Spring and Waterfall. This mine is where
    you get all of the ore you need to upgrade your tools. You can also get the ore
    you need to make you the cheese, mayonnaise, and yarn maker and the ore to make
    jewelery. You get all of these items by smashing the rocks with your hammer. 
    
    There are also other items you can find in the stones that can prove useful but
    are hard to find. These items are the Goddess Jewels and the teleportation
    stone. You can also find a Power Berry by digging.

    Fishing can be helpful. When you catch fish you can sale them, eat them, and
    cook them. In order to fish you must get the fishing pole from Zack first.

    -To Fish you need to equip your fishing pole. Then you need to stand next to
     the water and use the fishing pole.
    
    -When the hook goes into the water you will see the bobber on the surface of
     the water. When the bobber shakes and your character jerks, quickly press the
     "B" button. If you press it at the right time, you will catch something.
    
    -You will not always catch fish. Sometimes you will catch garbage.
    
    -The higher the level of the fishing pole, the bigger the fish you can catch.

    There are many types of fish. Some fish can only be caught in certain seasons,
    some can only be caught with a certain level on the fishing pole, and some can
    only be caught in certain parts of the river and sea.
    
    The parts of the river and sea are:
    
    Lake: The lake on Mother's Hill
    Upstream: The part of the river on Mother's hill
    Waterfall: The pond by the Hotspring and Spring Mine
    Downstream: Any part of the river that isn't on Mother's Hill
    Sea: The sea is on the beach
    
    
    Here is a list of all of the fish and where, when, and with what level of the
    fishing pole you can catch them:

    King Fish are the legendary fish of Mineral Town. They are so large that when
    you catch them, you can't even take them with you, so you make a print of it.
    There are 6 King Fish. You cant't just go out and catch these fish anytime you
    want. There are certain requirements you must meet for each fish. The first
    requirement you need to catch all of them is to have the cursed or blessed
    Fishing Pole. Here is a list of the King fish, their requirements, and where/
    when you can catch them.

    (25.) | Frequently Asked Questions* |
           \___________________________/
    
    These are in no certain order, i just put them down as i remembered them.
    
    
    -Q:I need to see the blue heart event for <insert name> but now she is at
      green. Can I still see it?
    
    A:Yes, her heart doesn't need to be that color for you to see that heart event
      it just has to be that color or higher.
    
    
    -Q: All of the girls got married and I'm still single! WHAT DO I DO?
    
    A: Sucks for you, once a girl is married, she stays married. The only one left
       for you to marry is the hardest one to marry, the Harvest Goddess.
    
    
    -Q: Where are those little people....the Harvest Sprites? I can't find them...
    
    A: There is a path to the left of the entrance to the church. If you follow it,
       you will find their house. There is also a map in this guide showing where
       they are.
    
    
    -Q: How do you get the Harvest Sprites to help on your farm?
    
    A: Befriend them, give them gifts. If they like you, they will come.
    
    
    -Q: There is a dog outside attacking my cows!!! Where did he come from?
    
    A: It is a wild dog, you will find them on your farm sometimes. They will
       attack your animals if they are not in a fence. Your dog will chase them
       away, or you can just come back later and he will be gone.
