Remember, this is for the Japanese version of the game and somethings might be left out when the US version arrives this August. Harvest Moon: Back to Nature(English name) Makiba Monogatari Harvest Moon(Japanese name) Contents: 1 Updates 2 Walkthrough 3 The Changes 4 The Characters 5 The Girls 6 The Animals 7 Extensions 8 Power Nuts 9 New Crops 10 Credits 11 Copyright New Added Ones: 12 Items 13 The Kitchen 1 Updates 6/28/00-version 1.5 All the sections are somewhat done and I took out two sections because they are hard to info from. Well, I will add details to some sections like the animals. And I better check the spelling again. I added two new sections: Items and The Kitchen, hope you like it! 6/24/00-version 1.0 Okay, this is the second FAQ I wrote, but the first one didnít get in so I hope this one will. I will get started in all sections or most, but I wont have time to finish them completely. 2 Walkthrough Intro When you start the game it, you talk to the mayor about when you were young. It shows you going to your grandpaís farm and playing, you tried to make fun of the chickens, but they chased you away. You rode on a cow too. Then a girl comes and you two play in the forest. When you were about to leave, you promised that you would come back someday, and thatís your future girl/wife. Day 1 Well you get your farm today, and from what it looks like, it looks like a huge farm with nothing but weeds and junk. Start clearing about a 4th of it, you will need to grow some crops later. Well, the game passes in 10 minute intervals so you have time to go south of the farm, which is the moutains. Look around and pick some wild crops to ship out, or you can go to the mine and dig. Day 2 Well you should notice your money has increased, so if you have enough, you can go to the grocerry store and buy some seeds, if not keep on foraging. Your backpack is very small, but the if you want it bigger, you need lots of money. The upgrades for the backpack is 3000g for the first one, and 5000g for the second. Day 3 You should have enough money by now so buy some cabbage or potato seeds because from what I seen, the new crops donít give much money during spring. Well, water them and keep on foraging! From now on, I am not going to tell you to forage because you do that everyday forever because it never hurts to have more money! Day 4 Letís hope itís the weekends, because you really need a fishing rod! The fisherman is located near the beach by the dock on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Well try to get your money up to 1500 or more because you want atleast one chicken! Day 5 Water your crops and do your usual things, I suggest you upgrade your Axe because it wont cut tree stumps, only little logs. But then again, itís 1000g and you donít have the money yet. Day 6 Okay, in my game I have about 2000-3000g now, I hope you do too, I bought a chicken today and some feeds, so you should too. Now water your crops first because the Poultry Farm opens at 11:00 AM. 3 The Changes Your farm is much much bigger with a horse stable you can walk in. And you have a little windmill to make chicken feed by putting corn in it. Your dog is a puppy at first, I am not sure when he grows up, since mine is still little. The Girls is already slightly dating your rivals, but they are very easy to get, because you can change many levels of a heart in 1 day if you try hard. You need to pay to upgrade your tools, itís more expensive as the levels are higher, upgrade them at the blacksmith. You also get your brush here. Everyone has been put into new set of families, same people, different families though, and Kent is no where to be seen. The Graphics are way better. If you plant flowers during spring, a bee with come and make a hive, then you can make honey and sell it! I also noticed that the swimming festival is a bit harder, you have to push the triangle and circle buttons. 4 The Characters They are exactly the same as the N64 version except some has been taken out, and they have different personalities. Also, a Doctor has been added, also known as your rival for Elli. 5 The Girls Ann-In this game, she is the cooking master! Her father owns a resturant and mostly if not always wins the cooking festival. She likes Hot Spring eggs! Rival Cliff-He works with Annís father but if you wait till the end of the first winter and you ignored him, he will leave on a boat making it easy for you to get! Karen-She is a bit nicer now, and her family owns a groccery store. Rival Rick-He seems to be good friends with Karen, if your after Karen, watch out for this psycho! Popuri-Everyone treats her like a child, even her brother Rick(Shock!). She loves Pink Cat Mint flowers. Rival Kai-This atheletic jerk is hated by a lot of people in the town. Just treat him bad and Popuri is yours, as long as you win the swimming festival Maria-Sheís kind of outgoing now, and still works a much bigger library. Rival Gray-He seems to work at the blacksmithís and is Annís brother. Just be careful because if you come at the wrong time, you will see an event, so avoid him. Elli-She works at the clinic now, and is interested in the doctor(ugly guy!) and she very mature now, since her parents passed away, she has to take care of her little brother Stu and look after her grandmother. Rival Doctor-As mentioned above, this guy is the rival. Try to avoid him and donít go to the clinic at a wrong time, or something will happen. Couples wont get married until 4 years if your not. 6 The Animals Fishes-They are my favorite in the game! All you have to do is fish them for free, give them one bag of fish feed for the whole group, and the feed is not expensive! Plus they grow up and become big fish, and they breed new fishes so you can sell them! Price-free/fish for them. Reproduce-feed it everyday and when it becomes a big fish, it can reproduce. Note-I heard you can only catch big fish in the beach, someone please confirm this. Sell-depends on size of the fish. Chickens-They arenít bad, infact they are pretty good money makers, just buy one chicken and incubate the others. As soon as you get the chicken coop extension, you should be getting about 1000g or more a day if you have a few chickens. If you win the chicken sumo..which I donít know much about, you will get gold eggs. Price-1500g each, 1000g for medicine, and 10g for feed. Reproduce-Chickens you buy can reproduce by putting an egg in the incubator, and small chickens wont until it matures. Sell-depends if you are selling the chicken, an egg, or a hot spring egg. Cows-They are next best money makers, when they mature, you will get small milk but will get bigger as you take care of them, win the cow festival and you get gold milk. You can get the cow and tools like the milker at Mayís Farm. Price-Unknown Sheeps-They take much care because you have to talk to them and brush them and cut their wool, but they worth money. Get sheeps at Mayís Farm as well. It takes about 3 weeks or 20 something days for it to mature. Price-Unknown 7 Extensions Chicken Coop-adds more space for chicken, adds one more incubator, and a sauce machine for 20000g with some rare metals. Barn(cows/sheep)-adds more space for cows/sheeps and a few more birthing station. Kitchen-adds a kitchen, two cabinets, and something else. You may also cook in the kitchen. Second house extension-adds more space to your home and a few rooms. Greenhouse-same as N64, but there is nothing to protect it, so lightning storms and typhoons can knock it down. Also has very little space. I found out that if you are nicer to the Carpenter(Karenís dad in the N64) he will lower the price so be nice to him! 8 Power Nuts -Found by digging in the mine a few levels in spring. 9 New Crops Example: crop-days takes to grow/days to regrow The crops in this game are: Pineapple-n/a Onion-n/a Cucumber-n/a Pumpkin-n/a Carrot/a Violet colored plant-n/a Broccoli-n/a Cabbage-n/a Potato-9 days Turnip-6 days Tomato-9 days/3 days to regrow Corn-14 days/ 4 days to regrow Eggplant-7 days/3 days to regrow(I think) Strawberry Grass Flower 10 Credits Vito(firstname.lastname@example.org)-For helping me with some stuff I didnít know about.
