    4) Animals, and how to get them :
    
    Note : The Status screen in your house is your best friend for all animals. 
    It will tell you the development and health of every animal you have. Just 
    hit X facing your Journal, then select "Status".
    
    Chicken - Either buy one (500 g) from Bob at the Brownie Farm or buy a fresh 
    egg (50 g) from Ronald at the Supermarket and place it in the incubator in 
    the Hen House.
    
    To care for Chicken -
    
    Sunny Day - Leave it outside all day (at the very least from dawn until dusk). 
    Pick it up and talk to it with SELECT button to find out how it is doing. 
    From adult chickens you will get an Egg. From really healthy chickens that 
    are outside on sunny days there is a chance that you will get a Gold Egg.
    
    Rainy Day - Put it inside the night before it is going to rain. Feed it with 
    Chicken Feed bought from the Brownie Farm. Make sure you put the food in the 
    correct box for your chicken. Use the X button to see if the chicken's name 
    is on the feed box, then using Square fill the food box up. Do this for every 
    chicken you have. Pick it up and talk to it with SELECT button to find out 
    how it is doing. From adult chickens you will get an egg.
    
    Cow - Buy it at Brownie Farm (2500 g) or get a baby from Cow Miracle Potion 
    (2000 g, Brownie Farm).
    
    To care for Cow -
    
    Sunny Day - Leave it outside all day. Talk to it with the X button and brush 
    it. You can milk adult cows. The size of the milk depends on how well you 
    care for your cow. If your cow is really happy there is a chance that it will 
    give either Gold or Large Milk. You can not milk Baby or Pregnant cows.
    
    Rainy Day - Push it inside the night before it is going to rain. Talk to it 
    with the X button and brush it. Make sure to give Fodder to each cow. Use 
    the X button to see if the cow's name is on the feed box, and then put the 
    Fodder in. You get 1 fodder for cutting 3 pieces of grass in the pasture. 
    You can milk your happy adult cows. The size of the milk depends on how well 
    you care for your cow. You can not milk Baby or Pregnant cows.
    
    Horse - Get it from Bob at the Brownie Farm. You must work Part-Time Job on 
    Sunny Days before 3 PM. Make sure to talk to and brush all 5 horses, talk 
    to, brush, and milk the Cow. Also go inside the barn and put fodder in all 
    the food boxes. When all the animals start to trust you, Bob will show up 
    at your house the next morning and give you a horse.
    
    To care for Horse -
    
    Sunny Day - Leave it outside all day. Talk to it while you are near the head, 
    and brush it. When you can ride it, be sure to whistle every day and take 
    him for a ride.
    
    Rainy Day - Make sure to ride/push it into cow barn the night before it is 
    going to rain. Talk to it with the X button while near the head, and brush 
    it. Make sure to put Fodder in his food box. You can whistle for him and ride 
    him indoors for exercise.
    
    
    Dog - Put any food (Very Berry is good) into the dog dish every day. When 
    you see a dog on your farm, approach it slowly. If it runs away fast, you 
    can't pick it up yet. It should take all of Spring and probably some of Summer 
    before the dog will let you pick it up. When you do pick him up, you can name 
    him. There are two different dogs, a big wolf-dog with a blue bandanna, and 
    a small bloodhound dog with a red bandanna. You can choose which one you want.
    
    To care for Dog -
    
    Sunny Day - Leave it outside all day. Pick it up and talk to it with the SELECT 
    button. Make sure to put food in the dish. When you can whistle for it, make 
    sure you do that every day. Also if you get a flute from Louis it can be taught 
    tricks...
    
    Rainy Day - If you don't have a dog house, bring it inside your house the 
    night before it rains. Leave it in your house all day, but remember to still 
    put food in the dish. If you have a dog house, don't worry about it. Just 
    put food in the dish.
    
    Tricks - The dog has a variety of tricks, depending on how many hearts it 
    has. Equip the Magic Flute and press Square. Hold X and press the directional 
    button to play the flute.
    
    Sit - Up, Left, Down
    Lay - Up, Down, Down
    Heel - Left, Right, Right
    Run - Right, Left, Right
    Jump - Left, Up, Right
    Up (Sit Pretty or Sit Up) - Down, Up, Up
    
    Place your dog in the pasture with the cows and use RUN (Right, Left, Right). 
    Your dog will herd all the cows into the barn very quickly. This is very useful 
    if it is going to rain the next day.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    5) Housing Extensions :
    
    If you have enough money you can buy a house extension. Go to the Carpenter's 
    in Maple Forest early. It is closed on Tuesday and Thursday. Select BUY from 
    the options on the table/counter. You have two choices.
    
    Kitchen 10,000 g. This comes with a bathroom, toilet room, and kitchen. The 
    kitchen part comes with an Oven, Pot, Frying Pan, and a Refrigerator.
    
    Dog House 5,000 g. This is a small house for your dog. If you have this you 
    can leave him outside in the rain.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6) Growing and selling crops
    
    To grow crops, first you need to till the soil near your house with the Hoe. 
    
    Buy seeds from the Florists. There are four kinds : Potato, Tomato, Corn, 
    and Breadfruit. Tomato, Corn, and Breadfruit are best because they have 
    multiple harvests per each seed. Potato only has one harvest and then you 
    have to replant it if you want more.
    
    Plant the seed in the tilled soil only on a Sunny Day. It will help if you 
    make sure the next day is Sunny as well by watching the TV in your house. 
    It will help the crop even more if you check the calendar in your house and 
    make sure the weather is either Yellow (mild) or Red (hot) for the rest of 
    the week. If you plant it on a Rainy Day, the seeds will wash away.
    
    Water the seeds with the watering can. Make sure to water every single crop 
    every Sunny Day. You do not have to water on a Rainy Day.
    
    When the crop grows, harvest it. Place it in your rucksack with the L1 button. 
    Make sure to water renewable crops.
    
    To sell it you must take it into town. Check the Places list to see which 
    places buy which produce.
    
    To harvest fodder for your Horse or Cows, cut the long grass in the pasture 
    with your sickle. It takes three sections of grass to make one fodder.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    7) Harvesting wild produce
    
    There are many kinds of wild produce that grow around the town. The two best 
    places to look for wild produce are Walnut Forest and next to Clove (Dia's) 
    Villa.

    9) Daily Walkthrough + Nine ways to beat the game - Walkthroughs
    
    Section A. - Daily Walkthrough
    
    You start the game with some simple tools and potato seeds. How do you turn 
    that into a profitable farm? Here are some ideas.
    
    First day - (1st of Spring)
    
    Today is just a free day to meet the Goddess, the Harvest Sprites, and name 
    your character. NOTE : This day will automatically be skipped if you are 
    starting over. You will automatically start on the second day.
    
    Check the weather. If tomorrow is going to be sunny, make sure you plant your 
    potato seeds today.
    
    Run around town and meet everyone. Make sure to harvest some wild produce.
    
    Buy an egg and place it in the incubator.
    
    Make sure to put some food in the dog dish to attract a wild dog.
    
    Write in your diary before going to sleep.
    
    Every other day -
    
    Wake up, check the weather. 
    
    Go outside. Put food in the dog dish, take care of your animals, water your 
    plants.
    Check your inventory. If you have enough money to buy seeds or another egg 
    (if the incubator is empty), do so. Tomato and corn are the best things to 
    plant, as they have the highest profit margins.
    					
    Make sure you have enough fodder and chicken feed for your animals. At first, 
    just buy a tiny amount of chicken food in case it rains and you have to put 
    your chickens inside, and cut only a few pieces of grass to make fodder.
    
    If the day is sunny, go to Bob's early in the morning and work for him all 
    day. Brush all the horses and the cow, and milk the cow. Put fodder in all 
    the stalls in the barn. You get paid 50g per hour, so try to stay on the farm 
    as long as possible. This is a fast way to earn a lot of money, plus you get 
    to keep the Milk from the cow. (The Size increases as you care for the cow 
    more, just as if it were your own cow!)
    
    If the day is rainy, go harvest wild produce. You can sell it, or save some 
    to put in the dog dish. It's a good idea to do all your shopping on rainy 
    days, and you can sell your produce for money. Rainy days are excellent days 
    to give gifts to villagers.
    
    At night, dig on your farm to find ores to sell.
    
    If tomorow is going to be rainy, put the animals inside after the sun sets 
    and the music stops.
    
    Write in your diary before going to bed.
    
    Tons of money scheme -
    
    Do your daily walkthrough as listed above.
    
    Make sure you have a dog and the Magic Flute. This way you can keep your cows 
    outside and bring them inside with the dog trick RUN (Right, Left, Right) 
    if it is going to rain the next day.
    
    Once you have enough money, buy a cow. Keep buying cows or making cows with 
    the cow miracle potion until you have five.
    
    Buy a kitchen. You can turn Medium Milk into Yogurt, which sells for a lot 
    more than Medium Milk. You can turn Large Milk into Cheese, which sells for 
    a lot more than Large Milk. Once you have 5 cows that produce large milk, 
    you can get a maximum of 2500 per day from cheese.
    
    
    Section B. - Endings Walkthrough.
    
    Note : I'm trying to keep this as spoiler free as possible. This is a listing 
    of all the crucial events on each path to beating the game. If the events 
    refuse to advance, keep giving presents to the people involved and give it 
    some time.
    
    1) The Treasure Hunt I
    
    Description : Shiver me timbers! Tim found a treasure map! He's always wanted 
    to be a treasure hunter, but who would have thought that a stash of treasure 
    was buried in this tiny burg? Maybe this farming gig is the wrong career 
    path...
    
    Make friends with : Your dog, Tim, Bob, Woody, Kurt, Gwen
    
    Events :
    
    1) Tim will show up at your house one morning with a treasure map. He asks 
    you to help. Choose "Okay" to dig up an old treasure chest.
    2) Tim comes by with a new treasure map. The clue is "Find the Gate to the 
    Sacred Land in Praria Forest".
    3) Talk to all the townspeople, the Sprites, and the Goddess about the Sacred 
    Land.
    
    I'm having trouble finding the exact times for events to happen with this 
    ending. I THOUGHT you were supposed to bring your dog to Clove Villa on 
    Thursday around 2PM (when Tim is there). If you have beat the game in this 
    way, PLEASE contact me on how to get this ending.)

    2) The Treasure Hunt II
    
    Description : Did you know that your pet is a real treasure hunting dog? Yep, 
    good ol' what's-his-name can sniff with the best of the bullion bloodhounds, 
    provided that you always treat him (or was it a her?) extremely well.
    
    Make friends with : Your dog, Tim, Bob, Dia, Martha
    
    Tip : It is very important to make friends with Dia as soon as possible.
    
    Tip : Try to wish for "Girl" from the Goddess as much as possible, as there 
    is a 20% chance that she will make Dia like you better if the wish succeeds.
    
    Events :
    
    1) Tim asks you to dig up a treasure with him. Choose "Okay" to help him dig 
    up a treasure chest.
    2) Tim shows up at your farm with a new treasure map! He even makes you a 
    copy.
    3) Ask around town about it.
    4) Dia will search her house for more information for you.
    5) I can not stress this enough, talk to Dia every day if you can. Give her 
    lots of Blueberries. Talking to her while she is outside is important. She 
    wil ask you to lend her an ear. Select yes to hear her life story.
    
    I'm having trouble finding the exact times for events to happen with this 
    ending. I THOUGHT you are supposed to wine and dine Dia until she finds the 
    blueprints, but I AM NOT getting the events for this. If you have beat the 
    game in this way, PLEASE contact me on how to get this ending.)
    
    More later on this!
    
    3) The Cake Contest
    
    Description : Hey good lookin' whatcha got cookin? Folks in these parts take 
    their country cuisine seriously. Why, Grandma used to make the best cake in 
    four counties! That probably explains why Katie wants those recipes...
    
    Make friends with : Katie, Wallace, Gwen, Louis, Dia
    
    Events :
    
    1) The Cafe - Katie will explain why she wants the recipe. Go outside, and 
    Gwen will tell you what she thinks the real reason is
    2) Find the Recipe - It's in your house... somewhere
    3) Give the Recipe to Katie - The Cafe
    4) Get Golden Milk and Golden Eggs from your Cows and Chickens
    5) Go to the Cafe to test the cake (You can and should do this at various 
    stages of this path to beating the game)
    6) Get the book about Moon Drop Dew from Dia (Clove's Villa)
    7) Give the book to Katie - The path diverges here... she may tell you a day 
    to show up at Goddess Lake at 9 PM or she may tell you that she will handle 
    it.
    
    If she tells you to show up at Goddess Lake at 9 PM on a certain day, DO IT. 
    This is the way to Make Moon Drop Dew.
    
    If she tells you that she will handle it, keep going to the Cafe every day 
    until there is a scene with Louis (or, another Male character, it was Louis 
    in my game).
    
    8) Either make (Goddess Lake) or wait for Louis (Cafe) to make the Moon Drop 
    Dew
    9) One Final Cake Test - Katie Leaves for the Big City
    10) One week later, go outside your door for the ending!
    
    4) A Fishy Story
    
    Description : If you've been down to the lake recently, you probably know 
    that Joe the apprentice is completely hooked on fishing. Get to know him 
    better and he'll tell you about the rare fish roaming the depths of the lake.
    
    Make friends with : Joe, Kurt, Louis
    
    Note : You should be spending all your time fishing and giving presents to 
    Joe, Kurt, and Louis if you want this ending to the game.
    
    Note : If you have the fishing rod already, skip straight to event #2.

    More later on this!
    
    5) The Bluebird
    
    Description : In the evenings Louis likes to play his flute and feed the birds 
    at the lake. Once he saw a rare bluebird, a species Woody says is extinct. 
    If bluebirds exist, the developers could never build here!
    
    Make friends with : Louis, Lyla, Woody
    
    Note : If you have the Magic Flute already, skip straight to event #2.

    ending!
    
    7) The Goddess Dress
    
    Description : While one glance in Dia's cluttered closet at Clove's Villa 
    might leave you with the impression that she already has enough to wear, Gina

    8) The Endangered Weasel
    
    Description : Something big and white is terrorizing the Harvest Sprites! 
    Truthfully, everything seems rather big and scary when you're no bigger than 
    a plump tomato. Luckily for you, Gwen is around to explain what's really going 
    on.
    
    Make friends with : The Sprites (Nic, Nack, and Flack), Gwen, Woody

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    10) Secrets + Playing Tips
    
    Power Berry locations -
    
    1) Cut down grass on your farm's pasture with the sickle.
    2) Get from the Harvest Sprites after you become good friends with them. You 
    must have a dog. This is a cut scene that triggers when you come back to your 
    farm.
    3) Fish this one from the lake.
    4) Get from the Goddess. Give her a vegetable every day to become friends 
    with her. First, throw in a flower or something to summon her, make your wish, 
    then throw in a vegetable.
    5) Dig it up in the Sacred Land of Praria Forest with your hoe.
    6) Dig it up on your farm with your hoe.
    
    Fix the weather -
    
    When save your game, wake up, and the weather forecast for the next day doesn't 
    look good, just reset your game until the weather forecast changes.
    
    Cheap Chicken -
    
    Buy an Egg from Ronald at the Supermarket and place it in your incubator. 
    In a few days you will have a chick. Take good care of it and in a few days 
    you will have an egg laying chicken. You can use the eggs to make more chickens 
    for free.
    
    Free fodder -
    
    Accept the part time job from Bob at the Brownie ranch. After taking care 
    of the horses and the cow, go inside the barn. Go to the fodder spout and 
    take out fodder with the X button. Place it in your rucksack with the R button.
    
    Choose your horse -
    
    When working at the Brownie ranch, you can pick which color of horse you get. 
    Just talk to and brush the horse you want first every day you work there. 
    It might help if you talk to and brush the horse you want and ignore the other 
    horses a few times too.
    
    Full Moon Berry -
    
    Every other day in Fall, a Full Moon Berry appears behind the Cafe/Bar. Go 
    around to the side where the entrance to Katie's room, rotate the camera angle 
    with the right analog stick, and you should be able to see it. This is an 
    ideal gift for a girl.
    
    Crops -
    
    Don't plant a ton of crops. Only plant somewhere between 8-16. If you plant 
    too many crops, you will spend your whole day on the farm, which is not good 
    in this game. The idea is to Save the Homeland by becoming friends with 
    villagers and seeing different events.
    
    Mini Games - Fishing, Time Attack, and The Magic Flute
    
    Fishing -
    
    Once you get a fishing rod, go to Walnut Lake. Stand on the shore of the lake, 
    make sure your fishing rod is equipped, hit SQUARE, then hold X until you 
    pull the fishing rod all the way back. Let go. There should be a something 
    near the end of your line (a shadow). Use the directional buttons and X to 
    hook the shadow. Once the shadow is hooked, you will see four arrows. Hold 
    the directional button of the arrow that is flashing while reeling with the 
    X button. If the fish jumps, quickly let go of both buttons, then press them 
    again once the fish stops jumping.
    
    Time Attack -
    
    After seeing two scenes where Bob and Gwen come to your farm, you can now 
    do the Time Attack. Go to the Brownie Farmer's store any day that it is open 
    and sunny. Talk to Bob from across the counter and choose "Time Attack" from 
    the menu. You go out to the racing track behind Bob's store. To get a fast 
    time, try to stay towards the fence on the right. Hold up on the straight 
    parts, and when you get to a corner, quickly veer to the right. Do this when 
    you race Bob and Gwen as well, making sure that they don't get on the inside 
    track.
    
    To make your horse faster, ride him every day.
    
    The Magic Flute -
    
    For the Bluebird ending of the game, you must complete a mini-game with Louis. 
    This is probably the hardest mini-game in Harvest Moon : Save the Homeland. 
    The best advice I can give you is to stay calm. Louis will take you to Walnut 
    Lake to play the Flute together. Basically, all you have to do is hold X and 
    press the proper directional key for each colored note.
    
    Up is Green
    Left is Pink
    Down is Blue
    Right is Red
    Press the proper directional key just as the music note passes over the left 
    side of your character's head. 
    
    You can keep playing all day to practice, and the reset your game to try it 
    again. Just keep practicing until you master it.

    11) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
    
    Q. Is there Marriage in this game?
    
    A. No.
    Q. How many animals are in this game?
    
    A. You can have One Dog, One Horse, Six Chickens, and Five Cows.
    
    Q. How many crops are there in this game?
    
    A. Four. Potato, Tomato, Corn, and Breadfruit
    
    Q. What happens when you beat the game?
    
    A. First, you should watch the ending, and then save the game when it prompts 
    you to. You can start all over again from Spring 2nd. There are some things 
    you keep, like your animals and their affection ratings. You keep all your 
    belongings and house extensions. You keep your tools except for Super Tools 
    (Sickle, Fishing Rod). You lose all your Key Items. You also lose the trust 
    and friendship of all the villagers.
    
    Q. What happens if you don't finish the game by Winter 30th?
    
    A. You get a bad ending, but are allowed to save and start over again, just 
    as if you had gotten one of the "good" endings.
    
    Q. I was working on a path to beating the game, and it stopped! Why am I not 
    getting events anymore?
    
    A. Probably because you started getting events for another path. Don't worry 
    though, just keep giving gifts to the people involved in the path you were 
    originally on to beat the game. Also, you can not see some events for a path 
    and still beat it. Example : I only saw the events 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 on the 
    Goddess Dress ending, then events 7 and 8, and then events number 10 and 11. 
    So, even though I skipped events 6 and 9 I was still able to beat the game.
    
    Q. My Chicken keeps getting sick. Why?
    
    A. Because it is not eating. You must leave a chicken outside during a sunny 
    day until it goes to sleep for it to be full. When the Chicken is inside, 
    make sure you are feeding it in the right food dish. Use the X button while 
    facing the food dish to see if the Chicken's name is on it, then fill it up 
    with Chicken Feed.
