| First of all, let me say this. This Harvest Moon game is HUGE - there's
| likely as much information on this game as all previous Harvest Moons put
| together. Every feature, from recipes to furniture to fishing and foraging,
| exists again in this game, but is exponentially deeper and more involved.
| If I'd known how much there was to this game when I started, I wouldn't
| have dared to try to write a FAQ about it. But here I am.
|
| This guide has taken a crapton of work to put together. I've written guides
| before, but never one nearly this enormous. Putting together a guide like
| this is like a month of full-time work - which is especially interesting to
| try to pull off while attending graduate school. So if you find this guide
| helpful, I'd really appreciate hearing it.

| Version History:
|
| The version history below doubles as my Credits section, which is why it's
| so long. I've considered deprecating it to save file space, but given that
| the majority of contributors are recognized in this section, I'd rather not.
|
| 5.0.5 (08/11/2009): A note on Renee's gift (thanks, Ping!), a fix on the
| rainbows (thanks, Devon!), and a fix on Luke's request event (thanks,
| Mothership1953!). Also, the new version of OpenOffice appears to count words
| significantly differently from the old, so the word count has jumped big
| time.
| File Size: 1308KB, 1283845 characters, 219464 words, 472 pages
|
| 5.0.4 (07/28/2009): Some elaboration on triggering date events (courtesy of
| Caitlin131313), some new animal preference listings from mister_jmp, and a
| new glitch submitted by wolf_man659.

| 5.0.3 (07/20/2009): Minor fixes on villager arrivals and clarification on
| Gill's request event.
| File Size: 1302KB, 1277258 characters, 150439 words, 471 pages
|
| 5.0.2 (07/15/2009): Minor fix on the Spring/Summer Markets goods listing,

| 5.0.1 (07/05/2009): Minor fixes and additions.
| File Size: 1302KB, 1276985 characters, 150415 words, 470 pages
|
| 5.0.0 (06/29/2009): This is not an update with any major new inclusions, but
| rather is an update to take a step towards finalizing this guide. I'm not
| saying I'm never going to touch it ever again, especially if people still
| find mistakes, but I'm moving it past the point of being a work-in-progress.
| To that end, for this update I've completely re-read over the entire guide
| (yes, all 400+ pages of it) and made sure it's consistent throughout. There
| still may be some small errors in places, especially areas that are 
| especially hard to test (like what fish are available where), but overall
| there should not be any major, glaring problems at this point, and the guide
| should be consistent throughout. The biggest improvements in this version
| besides the overall revision are a big enhancement to the characters section,
| and the inclusion of some animal preferences. It's been a helluva project,
| and as much fun as it is, I'm ready to be done - so, I am.

|
| 4.7.0 (03/05/2009): Long time, no update. We're almost done, anyway. I might
| be pruning back a couple sections that are currently empty and just leaving
| them out altogether, considering the non-essentialness of them. So if anyone
| really, really wants us to include character schedules, date responses and
| a purchase price list, let me know - otherwise, those sections will probably
| be removed. For this update, I've added in the Checklist section - it lists
| most of the Bookshelf items in the order they appear on the shelf, so that
| you'll be able to more easily figure out what you're missing. Corrections 
| and minor additions this update include: fixed Eggplant seed sellers (thanks,
| g_knightley!), fixed something on the Animal Festival (thanks, Zorack64!),
| fixed that it's Maya, not Mira, that has a booth at the Spring/Summer
| Markets, added in that the Skull Jellyfish can be caught in the goddess cave
| (thanks, Navaria!), removed the rumor (that I might've started) that ducks
| can be mallards (brown/green) and goats can be black (thanks,
| HarvestQueen105!), added in Renee's Thanksgiving gift (thanks, Z_Oblivion!),
| fixed Souffle Farm workers' days off (thanks, HarvestQueen105!), added in
| several gift responses (thanks, mister_jmp and g_knightley!), fixed the max
| amount that can be earned in the tutorial (thanks, Saph Rose!), fixed the
| number of sparkles on Crystal (thanks, Vincent!), fixed that Crawfish is a
| crustacean (thanks, mister_jmp!), added in Strawberry's out-of-season growth
| times (thanks, mister_jmp!), and fixed that Eels can be used in fish recipes
| (thanks, Taylor_dt!).

|
| 4.6.0 (02/09/2009): Major overhaul to the FAQ section. Had some other
| corrections I wanted to get into this edition, but ran out of time, and 
| rather than wait a couple days to get them in I figured I'd go ahead and post
| this update with the new and improved FAQ section.
| File Size: 1104KB, 1082201 characters, 129108 words, 406 pages
|
| 4.5.0 (01/26/2009): Pretty major update. Finally finished writing the Places
| index, corrected the incredibly incorrect guide to how long it takes to run
| from each plot to various locations, added in new info on the Mt. Gelato
| Mine, added in out-of-season growth times (thanks, Light Yagami!), added in
| animal sale price rules (thanks, mister_jmp!), nearly finished the gift
| responses (thanks again, mister_jmp!), completed the Sale Price Index (huge
| thanks to MJ for putting the spreadsheet together!), added in the Crop Quick
| Reference chart, and completed (mostly) the Season-by-Season walkthrough.
| There's minor changes too; Owen's thanksgiving gift has been added (thanks,
| Yuliana!), fixed details on typhoons and Swim Shorts (thanks, Thunder Bro),
| fixed Pinkcat's purchase season (thanks, MJ!), and clarified the New Game+
| rules (thanks, g_knightley!). This guide, at this point, is almost done. The
| only sections left are the Bachelor/ette Walkthroughs and the Purchase Price
| list, both of which will be done at some point. After that, I plan to read
| through it and make sure no extremely outdated information is still in here,
| and then we'll be done. The gift preferences project is still under way, of
| course, and we're making good progress - almost at 30% now. I've also run my
| extra-space removing program on this guide, lowering the size by a few KB.
| File Size: 1051KB, 1030317 characters, 121867 words, 388 pages
|
| 4.2.3 (01/13/2009): Just a change to the 'Contact Info' section, since my old
| note was scaring too many people off contacting me.
| File Size: 1004KB, 983776 characters, 115603 words, 369 pages
|

| thanksgiving gift (thanks, dabraincoc!), made a few fixes to the shops'
| listings (thanks a ton to the mercurial 'm' for these!), fixed the cut-off
| time for triggering lunch and confession dates (thanks, rpumilia!), and added
| in Renee's 'liked' response (thanks, volcanflame!). Also, the gift listing
| has been updated at the URL listed in the update below - special thanks to
| g_knightley, who has been actively pursuing testing all the different
| flowers. Thanks!
| File Size: 1003KB, 982753 characters, 115463 words, 369 pages
|
| 4.2.1 (01/06/2009): Fixed Owen's 5-heart request (thanks, Brittany!), added
| more information on Chase (thanks, yhibiki!), and a couple other small fixes.
| Additionally, the Gifts-by-Recipient and Recipients-by-Gifts sections have
| been removed and moved to a separate guide. They were taking up far too much
| space in this guide. To find them, check out the new guide, which is posted
| at: www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/55357
| File Size: 1001KB, 981951 characters, 115338 words, 368 pages
|
| 4.2.0 (01/04/2009): Elaborated on Gill's request event location, added in a
| couple gift responses (thanks, Mizushimo!), added a note on bird feed and
| incubating eggs (thanks, Tammy!), added in Kathy's lunch date answer (thanks,
| shadow.ouimette!), added in info on Luke (thanks, green_link!), fixed Owen's
| gifts and responses (thanks, missypearl!), fixed some fishing stuff (thanks,
| Bullfrog245!), added a Part-Time Job column to the character quick-reference

| Kmdstoddard, mister_jmp, Mizushimo, Musicalgal25, uofdoom and missypearl.
| Thanks to all the contributors.
| File Size: 1339KB, 1316362 characters, 132647 words, 461 pages
|
| 4.1.1 (12/17/2008): Added in more stuff. Woo. Gift preferences and gift
| responses, mostly. New gift preferences are from Drouge87, Mizushimo and, of
| course, mister_jmp. Also fixed the Chirashi Sushi recipe, thanks gummystar2.
| The word count has gone down since some duplicate listings and mis-labeled
| listings were removed from the Gift Lists.
| File Size: 1200KB, 1179969 characters, 120713 words, 413 pages
|
| 4.1.0 (11/24/2008): Fixed a couple places where I was still referring to
| Ganache Mine as the "small mine", fixed the description of horse racing,
| added Mira to the list of Blacksmith Shop workers (thanks, BlackBrigade22!),
| fixed the date of the Harvest Festival in the several places it was wrong,
| made a couple other fixes to the Harvest Festival Cooking Contest, fixed the
| perfume recipes, fixed something about honey in the walkthrough and added a
| note on meeting Julius (thanks, Callista1348!), elaborated a bit on tool
| usage and stamina consumption, moderately rearranged the Making Friends and
| Wooing a Mate section, added in the framework for including character
| schedules, correct date answers and proposal locations, changed '4-heart
| gift' to '5-heart gift', replaced 'thread' with 'Silk Yarn' (a surprisingly
| tough task), and... ok, I'll be honest. This is the point where documenting
| every tiny change got really old. Thanks to mister_jmp, wonnyluv, AshleyTX
| and Mizushimo for some gift preferences, thanks to mister_jmp for ridiculous
| amounts of information as always, but beyond that, I didn't document the
| other changes. If you contributed (and there were several) and aren't
| credited at the base of the guide, let me know - I really do appreciate it,
| but at this point most people who are contributing have contributed before,
| so I'm not paying as much attention.
| File Size: 1190KB, 1169660 characters, 120846 words, 412 pages
|
| 4.0.0 (11/11/2008): Pretty huge update this time around: included in this
| update are the profit studies, growth times and profitability rankings for
| every crop in every season; an overhaul to the section on Villager Affection
| Mechanics; an overhaul to the section on Poultry Affection Mechanics and to
| the section on Livestock Affection Mechanics; an overhaul to the Stamina and
| Fatigue Mechanics section; and a few other things that I've forgotten. All of
| these things were completed with incredible contributions from mister_jmp.
| That would be why his name is now listed at the very top of this giant guide.
| Also, fixed the Souffle Farm price list's seed mixes (thanks, oulytZ!), added
| that recipes, crops and most anything else can be stored in the toolbox
| (thanks, several people), a tip on New Game+ tools (thanks, DayWolf!), a tip

| voku0247!), and a fix on crawfish (thanks, jan_lee23!). Also, special thanks
| to voku0247, mister_jmp, Mothership1953 and HausKat for submitting some
| villager gift preferences. This is likely the last big update. There are a
| few sections that still need to be filled out, but almost all the information
| there is about the game is now officially in this giant guide.
| File Size: 1118KB, 1098509 characters, 113939 words, 392 pages
|
| 3.7.0 (10/31/2008): The most significant part of this Halloween update is
| that one of the most-requested parts of the guide has finally been posted:
| a more comprehensive listing of every villager's opinion of every item. Well,
| that's the goal at least. At present it's not nearly complete - there are
| likely around 50,000 villager-item pairs, and currently we have about 1500 of
| them. But with your help, we'll get it! Besides that, I've Fixed Fall
| Festivals' search code, fixed where to buy Bell Pepper seeds, fixed Souffle
| Farm's Fall produce, added some notes on typhoons and changing the weather,
| added in notes about farm rankings in various places, fixed Mt. Gelato Mine's
| floor guide (thanks, Hexforester!), fixed the Hilltop and Seaside plot sizes
| (thanks, mister_jmp!), fixed Strawberry's and Begonia's sale prices (thanks
| again, mister_jmp!), added a lot of information on watering can upgrades

| added in some of Selena's likes (thanks, voku0427!), added Selena's 5-heart
| event (thanks, JaydeWiz!), fixed Pineapple Inn's Part-Time Jobs (thanks,
| AshleyTX!), fixed the dog locations (thanks, Pikaley!), fixed the Goddess
| Cave fishing availability (thanks, Adam!), added a Renee gift preference and
| a note on the blue feather (thanks, Blade Kiri, for both of these!), and as
| always, updated the walkthrough and game log. The Getting Started walkthrough
| is basically done - it'll lead into a Season-by-Season walkthrough, which is
| what I'll be writing next, as well as several other new and exciting things.
| There are going to be a few more major additions in the near future as well.
| With a lot of help from mister_jmp, there will soon be a comprehensive guide
| to the mine, a comprehensive guide to stamina usage, and profit analysis for
| every season's crops. The profit analysis should be up by the end of the
| weekend, while the other two should follow sometime next week (hopefully).
| And that'll take us to version 4.
| File Size: 962KB, 944340 characters, 95602 words, 342 pages

| previous four things), fixed a note on the purple wonderfuls (thanks,
| Stormfeather!), made a couple changes to the Getting Started walkthrough,
| and added to the Personal Game Log. Also, thanks in advance to Stormfeather
| for contributing basically every single thing that Julius likes, and Shionite
| for many things Toby likes. These will be posted at a later date, but in case
| I forget to acknowledge them then, thanks in advance!
| File Size: 714KB, 698750 characters, 83511 words, 269 pages

| File Size: 688KB, 673918 characters, 80127 words, 259 pages
|
| 3.5.0 (10/10/2008): The most major part of the update is the re-introduction
| of the walkthrough section. It currently consists of three walkthroughs:
| an "Island Arrival" walkthrough that functions as a walk through the first
| four days on the island (the tutorial section, basically); a "Getting
| Started" walkthrough that functions as a walk through the first couple months
| of the game, from new farm to established with animals; and a "Goddess
| Walkthrough" that functions simply as a walkthrough of the relevant dates in
| the goddess quest. The "Getting Started" walkthrough is currently incomplete,
| but will be completed as time goes on. New walkthroughs will also include a
| "Season-by-Season" walkthrough with suggestions on overall seasonal plans,
| and bachelor/ette walkthroughs for wooing each of your eligible bachelors
| and bachelorettes. In addition to that, pretty big new notes have been made
| on the crops mechanics section and the fishing section on fish-based recipes,
| and then there's the fixes: fixes on fertilizer and silkworms (thanks,
| Master Cube 10!), added the note on Ganache Mine level 19 being so mushroom-
| and toadstool-infested (thanks, pretty much everyone), fixed the formerly

| Tea', fixed the Cosmos color and its relevance to the goddess quest (thanks,
| knititblack!), a note on actually meeting Maya before the Spring Market
| (thanks, ellix_warrior!), a fix on where to buy Honey (thanks,
| JoshuaAmaron!), removed Wool and Cocoons from the Brownie Ranch price list
| (thanks, several people), a fix on the upstream river fishing location
| (thanks, myscreennamewow!), a typo on cows and shears (thanks, spencerdi!),
| and some information on Julius (thanks, Stormfeather!). And wow wall of text.
| File Size: 632KB, 618869 characters, 72093 words, 239 pages
|
| 3.3.2 (10/08/2008): This FAQ is now officially the recipient of FAQ of the
| Month on GameFAQs for the Month of August! Thanks to everyone who's

| the guide. Speaking of which: clarified the Shortcut to Mine section (thanks,
| masterofmon!), fixed the Yellowtail sale price (thanks, chaochap101!), a fix

| (thanks again, faulc!), a fix on Harvest Festival location (thanks,
| North_Hawk!), a fix on meeting Gray and Elli (thanks, VenomousX!), a fix on

| Ai!), fixed the Morning Glory color (thanks, Rowe2327!), fixed Candace and
| Luna's request event descriptions (thanks, WinterKitsune!), fixed something

| animekitsune!), and a fix on mining afflictions (thanks, Bananabafilly!).
| Yes, an update full of nothing but fixes. Walkthrough's through to day 7 -
| yes, Day 7 of first spring. But it's ridiculously thorough - I'll post it
| once it's up to Spring 15.
| File Size: 593KB, 579892 characters, 66349 words, 227 pages
|
| 3.3.0 (10/06/2008): Started working on the walkthrough by popular demand -

| (thanks, phoenix_cire!), a fix on fish stacking (thanks, BJPres!), a couple

| finding Owen (thanks, cynwri8!), a tip on finding Toby (thanks, NurseFin!),
| extra information on the axe upgrades (thanks, FullMetalPanic!), more of
| Anissa's gift preferences, a correction on Request events, and a little
| glitch on the date heart events (thanks, Shadow, for all three of these!),
| rewrote the "Getting Started" portion, and fixed one of the phone numbers
| (thanks one more time, Shadow!).
| File Size: 589KB, 576140 characters, 65791 words, 226 pages
|
| 3.1.0 (10/02/2008): With the game's release, lots of questions are being
| asked. Many of these have now been added to the FAQ section. Additionally,
| corrections have been made to the Controls section, a 'Screen' section has
| been added, replaced "Fish Co." and "Fishing Co." with "On the Hook", added
| in the Scavenger Hunt section, and added an attractive decorative border to
| the navigation system above (because things can always look prettier).
| File Size: 584KB, 571473 characters, 64991 words, 224 pages
|
| 3.0.1 (09/30/2008): Murphy's Law, as soon as you think something's done there
| emerges a few little issues. Minor fix to the Goddess Tree calendar, minor
| gender correction submitted by WinterKitsune, a new 'credit' section to
| accomodate the soon-to-be-numerous contributors, and a tip from amishlou on
| getting the 20-item rucksack.
| File Size: 578KB, 565502 characters, 64216 words, 222 pages
|
| 3.0.0 (09/29/2008): Huge additions, including the new Animals section, the
| Mining section, the Fishing section and the Part-Time Jobs section, overviews
| of each bachelor/ette's gifts and request events, updates to all characters'
| item likes and dislikes, an overhaul of the 'Reawaken the Goddess' steps,
| fixed some goddess rainbow ingredients, dropped the walkthroughs section,
| wrote a calendar of reminders for reawakening the goddess as fast as
| possible, changed 'Melon' to 'Honeydew' in a few places I missed, added in a
| list of forageables, and fixed various other little details. This guide is
| pretty much complete: all that's left to be done is compiling together the
| information in this guide into the Purchase and Sale price lists, and to
| complete the comprehensive gift-giving gifts. And to fix dozens and dozens of
| errors that I'm sure are here. Oh, and the navigation system was completely
| revamped too. Now does it make since how this guide's length increased by
| almost 100 pages since the last update?
| File Size: 576KB, 563405 characters, 63881 words, 221 pages
|
| 2.3.1 (09/13/2008): Changed the way Pros and Cons are listed for the initial
| property options, added Flax Yarn and Silk Yarn to the Animal Products
| list, finished reformatting everything with a colon in it, added birthdays
| to the character list (not sure why it took so long, I've had the birthday
| list for ages), and temporarily dropped the Animals section, pending a
| major overhaul.
| File Size: 362KB, 353262 characters, 38204 words, 146 pages
|
| 2.3.0 (09/10/2008): Added in Taylor's Seeds and the stall listings for the
| market festivals, added in Classic Controller controls, added more detail on
| the map screen, added in the unlockable areas, added a note on the weather,
| and started reformatting some of the colon lists.
| File Size: 378KB, 368897 characters, 40890 words, 153 pages
|
| 2.2.1 (09/08/2008): Revised how your birthday is chosen, and changed the
| versioning system to something a bit more systematic. First digit are major
| versions, second digit represents minor updates, third digit represents tiny
| fixes. Like this one!
| File Size: 353KB, 345045 characters, 37831 words, 143 pages
|
| 2.20 (09/07/2008): Elaborated on several of the festivals, filled out a
| couple price lists, changed 'Knife Set' to 'Cutting Board' under the recipes
| section, and a few translation fixes. Up next are Taylor's Seeds listings
| and stall listings for all the Festival stalls.
| File Size: 353KB, 344344 characters, 37725 words, 143 pages
|
| 2.10 (09/04/2008): Update to the recipe guide, now featuring multiple types
| of fish, as well as some translation corrections.
| File Size: 336KB, 327405 characters, 35589 words, 137 pages
|
| 2.00 (09/02/2008): A minor redesign (the double lines on the left looked
| great in Notepad, but not so good in Firefox and IE), added a question to the
| FAQ, elaborated a bit on how specifically the stamina and fatigue system
| works and nearly completed the Farming section of the guide. The Farming
| section is one of the largest sections there will be in this guide (thus the
| +.40 in this latest release's version number), and currently comprises 66129
| of this guide's 314682 characters (21%) - or, in more sensible terms, 33 of
| this guide's 133 printed pages. The official BradyGames guide has only 176
| pages, and that's with pictures. Aren't you glad you're here instead?
| File Size: 324KB, 315737 characters, 34451 words, 134 pages
|
| 1.60 (08/28/2008): Changed several names to reflect the newly confirmed
| names (Leena to Renee, Roomi to Luna, Mai to Maya, Selena to Selena,
| Chihaya to Chase, Juli to Julius, Gil to Gill, Ose to Owen, Tao to
| Toby, Kapara to Cain, Cresson to Craig, Rucola to Ruth, In'ya to Irene,
| Perinne to Perry, Yuba to Yolanda, Cole to Colleen, Poan to Bo, Rakusha
| to Ramsey, Pao to Paolo, Suoh to Sue, Mao to Matt and Yui to Dakota),
| added some birthdays, added to the General Store price list, corrected the

|/Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility (ToT for short) is the first Harvest Moon
| game for the Nintendo Wii (although Magical Melody was re-released for Wii
| in Europe and Australia). Gameplay requires use of the WiiMote and a Nunchuk,
| or the Classic Controller.
|
| Although the specific plot line for the different Harvest Moon games differs,
| Tree of Tranquility retains the same general goals as previous Harvest Moon
| games. You play the role of a farmer, given the task of running a farm. As
| part of this task, you grow and sell crops and raise animals to sell their
| products (milk for cows, eggs for chickens, etc.). In addition to these
| goals, you also interact with the villagers, both for commercial purposes
| (buying seeds, selling products, etc.) and social reasons. Festivals play a
| key role in the game, giving your character a chance to socialize and meet
| the neighbors. You even can meet and woo one of the local bachelors or
| bachelorettes, get married and have a child.

| Plot Outline                                                                |

|/As mentioned, the "plot" of Harvest Moon games tends to change from edition
| to edition. In the early days, it was simply restoring a decrepit farm, but
| in the more recent games it has moved toward the existence of a Harvest
| Goddess who, for whatever reason, needs your help. Aren't you special?
|
| In Tree of Tranquility, the plot objective (similar to Magical Melody) is to
| reawaken the Harvest Goddess. This is performed by helping the Harvest
| Sprites create rainbows and collecting certain "badges". Once all the
| rainbows are created, the Harvest Goddess will reawaken, and the game 
| continues indefinitely (note that after the opening sequences, the plot is
| mostly fluidly determined by how you play, and therefore there is no overall
| summary).
|
| You'll also have the opportunity at one point to discontinue your current
| game and start over as your child, while keeping any money you made (think of
| it as inheritance, even though your character doesn't die). Unfortunately,
| though, the villagers don't react to you any differently, and your character
| sprite is the same. You can even marry your new character's parent from your
| previous play-through. Creepy.

| Basic Information
|
| Let's get down to the overly-detailed basics. In Harvest Moon, you play a
| farmer. You run around, do chores, talk to people, give gifts, grow crops and
| raise animals. You can play as a boy or a girl, but to avoid s/he and other
| annoying gender-neutral terms, I'll most likely refer to the character as a
| male, except when normal gender-neutral words ('spouse', 'parent') exist.
|
| Your character stays the same the entire game: this is you. He can do a
| variety of actions, like walking, talking and using tools. He can hold
| either items or tools. Items can be given or thrown away, whereas tools
| can be used. He can only hold one item or tool at a time.
|
| He can run or walk according to how much the control stick is tilted.
| He can talk to people by going up to them and pressing A. If he has an item
| when he talks to a person, he'll automatically give it to them. If he has
| a tool, he'll show it to them, though oftentimes they won't pay any
| attention unless the tool has some particular relevance.
|
| You can pick things up in the game. Just walk up to them and press A to
| pick them up. On your back is the world's most space-efficient backpack
| (called a rucksack) able to hold up to 30 items at a time later in the game,
| including all your tools. Multiple items will stack in the rucksack, allowing
| you to hold up to 99 of an item for the same amount of space as 1. Yes, that
| rucksack can apparently hold 2970 pumpkins at a time. Crazy.
|
| One of the main goals in the game is to make money. To make money, place
| items in the various shipping bins. Any item that can be sold can be placed
| in the shipping bins. Price lists for various items can be found throughout
| this guide, but you'll mostly sell crops, fish, mine products, forageables
| and dairy products. For a list of Shipping Bin locations, search for { SBL }
| without the spaces.
|
| I think that about covers it. If you don't see something here, feel free
| to ask using the contact information at the bottom of this guide.

| Main Screen
|
| The main screen - that is, the screen when you're just out and around - has
| quite a few notable items.
| _ _ _ _
| Center
|
|        You : The most obvious characteristic, you!
| _ _ _ _ _
| Top Left
|
| Time Meter : A graphic depiction of the time of day. Really not all that
|              useful.
|      Clock : A clock displaying the current time in 10-minute increments.
|        Day : The day of the season and current day of the week.
|     Season : Displayed as an image: a green leaf for spring, a sun for
|              summer, a red leaf for fall and a snowflake for winter.
| _ _ _ _ _
| Top Right
|
|       Tips : A and - buttons appear when there's something your character
|              can do.
| _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Bottom Right
|
|      Money : How much Gold you have on hand.
|    Stamina : How much stamina you currently have - when at its maximum, it
|            : will appear as a rainbow-colored bar.
|   Portrait : A picture of you. Aren't you cute? The portrait will reflect
|            : your current level of stamina and fatigue.
| _ _ _ _ _ _
| Bottom Left
|
|    Tracker : After activated from the informational screens (see 'Heart',
|            : below), appears in the bottom left and points to where a certain
|            : character is.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {SAV} _
| Saving
|
| Saving the game is done at the nightstand next to your bed. To save, simply
| press A while standing next to the nightstand and choose where you'd like
| to save the game. Note that unlike in some past Harvest Moon games, you are
| not required to go to bed once you've saved, nor are you required to save in
| order to go to bed. Note that the cursor pointing to a particular save file
| will stay in the same place when you save your game as it was when you last
| saved or loaded, so accidental overwrites shouldn't be an issue.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {INS} _
| Informational Screens
|
| Bringing up the menu (pressing the + button) introduces you to a sequence
| of several informational screens with details about your farm, your
| relationships and your tools. Which screen you're on is represented by the
| icon on the wheel of icons in the top left; you can navigate amongst the
| screens by using the D-Pad (for some stupid reason), and the control stick
| to navigate within a screen.
|
|     Silo : Overall status screen. Displays general farm information (farm
|          : name, house level, amount of animal feed on hand, number of
|          : each animal), character information (name, birthday, general
|          : information), and tool skill levels.
|
|    Heart : Relationships with wild animals/pets, livestock and the local
|          : villagers (measured out of 10 hearts). Also features the new
|          : creepy Harvest Moon stalker utility, which will tell you where a
|          : particular villager is at any time (select their name to open the
|          : tracking meter, which will appear in the bottom left and always
|          : point to where that character can be found).
|
| Rucksack : An overall view of the current contents of your rucksack. Here you
|          : can rearrange the order of items in your rucksack by pressing A
|          : on the item to be moved, then A again where you would like the
|          : item to be placed.
|
|    Chest : Recipes for individual rainbows, if obtained, and progress through
|          : the Goddess quest.
|
|    Tools : All your financial information, including total money, money per
|          : season, and money gathered through each "category".
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {MAP} _
| Map Screen
|
| The map screen initially displays a broad map of the area you are in - if
| you're inside a building, it shows the area that contains that building.
| Included in this map is a list of the pets and characters currently in the
| area, as well as icons on the map showing the precise location of the
| characters.
|
| Above this main screen is a broader map of the entire island. Here you can
| select a particular area to view it in greater detail; however, you can only
| view the characters present in your own area, not other areas.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {TRA} _
| Trashing Items
|
| In past Harvest Moon games, a major problem was that if you were holding
| an item and accidentally pressed A (either just by slipping or by trying to
| give a gift and the person moving at the last second), it would get thrown
| on the ground and disappear.
|
| Tree of Tranquility has fixed this annoyance. If you try to throw an item
| away (meaning press A when not facing a person or the shipping box), you'll
| receive a confirmation screen, which gives you the option of either
| throwing it away, or putting it in your backpack. And even then, if you
| throw it away by accident, you'll have a momentary opportunity to pick it
| up again.

|/Welcome to the game! And welcome to the village, the island, and the world
| of Harvest Moon. If you're new to Harvest Moon, this section will help to
| to get you up-to-speed on some of the mechanics of the game as a whole. If
| you consider yourself a seasoned vet, though, skip down to the next section
| (Home Sweet Home: Your Ranch, search for ( HSH ) without the spaces), as this
| section will mostly re-hash what you likely already know (or could easily
| figure out).
|
| Like many Harvest Moon games, Tree of Tranquility opens with a substantial
| tutorial section. The one here is actually even more thorough than most: it
| involves a couple days of service at the local farm, as well as some chores
| and errands for the Mayor.
|
| The majority of it is fairly self-explanatory, and you're more than
| encouraged to experience it yourself. However, if you really want some help,
| there's a walkthrough provided in the Walkthroughs section. To see it, search
| for [ IAR ] without the spaces.
|
| This section, though, will get you acquainted with the island, the locations,
| unlockable areas, and generally how the game works.

| Caramel River District (Your Farm)
|
| Caramel River District serves one main purpose: it's where you live and farm.
| This is where you'll find your very own home.
|
| Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. Initially, your farm sure
| qualifies for the label "humble" - a house, a field, and little else. But
| have no fear, with your help (and maybe a little of mine) your humble abode
| will soon be a bustling commercial hub.
|
| At the beginning of the game, you'll be given the option of where you would
| like to put your initial farm, with three locations to choose from. For
| information on the benefits and drawbacks of each plot, check under Initial
| Location (search for [ INL ] without the spaces).
|
| This area is also home to Caramel River, the only place you can catch river
| fish, along with the Caramel Falls area. Caramel Falls is technically its own
| area, but it has only one notable characteristic separate from Caramel River:
| the Hot Spring, which you can utilize once per day to restore your stamina.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {TVA} _
| Waffle Town Area
|
| The hustling, bustling town center of the island. Well, it will be, at least.
| Early on it can be fairly quiet - new villagers arrive as the game progresses
| Eventually, the village area will be the central commercial location for
| buying seeds, buying clothes, celebrating festivals (up the stairs in the
| separate Waffle Town Square area), meeting the villagers, and pretty much
| everything else you could think of doing in a small town such as this - the
| main exceptions are certain shops and buildings in the Maple Lake and
| Ganache Mine area.
|
|\____________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {TBE} _
| Waffle Town Beach
|
| The beach to the southwest (well, and just west, and just south - it is an
| island, after all) is home to a fishing pier, soft sands, seashells and
| a single fun-in-the-sun festival. Beyond that, though, it's a fairly quiet
| area that you likely won't be visiting on a daily basis. Unlike the other
| areas in this section, the beach actually coexists with other areas - it can
| be reached on the south or west side of Waffle Town, as well as the south
| side of Caramel River District.

| Maple Lake District
|
| Maple Lake District, named for a small lake in the middle, is the primary
| residential zone on the island. No shops exist here, but almost half the
| game's characters hold houses in this area. Most of the characters that
| arrive after you complete certain tasks live in this area too. Maple Lake
| itself is also home to at least three fish that can't be caught anywhere
| else.
|

| Ganache Mine District
|
| Most of the shops you'll find besides the ones in Waffle Town lie in Ganache
| Mine district: the blacksmith shop, carpenter's shop and seed shop. In
| addition to these, you'll find the area's name sake: Ganache Mine, accessible
| year-round for some low-reward metal and gem mining.
|
| Also notable in this area is Praline Forest, at the far northeast edge. Here
| is one of three places in the game you can find all different color herbs,
| as well as Very Berries, blueberries, logs, choppable trees and breakable
| stones.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {TOI} _
| Other Areas
|
| If you look at a map, you'll see that there are several places beyond just
| these that you can't access at the beginning of the game. Among these are
| Brownie Ranch District (to the northwest, past Souffle Farm); Mt. Gelato (the
| entire east side of the island); and three other islands (in the ocean to the
| south). These locations are unlocked through tasks you undertake throughout
| the game - for specific information on how to unlock then, read the next
| section.

| Brownie Ranch District
|
| Brownie Ranch is the home to all your ranching needs: buying animals,
| animal feed, and all the animal care-taking tools. It is also the home of
| Renee, Cain and Hanna, Gray's place of employment, and Kathy's daily
| hang-out.
|
| But unfortunately, at the beginning of the game, it's blocked by a giant
| boulder. You'd think someone would take care of that, wouldn't you? That's
| what you're here for. Kind of.
|
| The boulder in question is just past Souffle Farm, on the far western side of
| the Ganache Mine District. You'll need a level 3 hammer to bust it - if you
| have a level 3 hammer, just pull it out, approach the rock and press A.
|
| More information on upgrading tools comes later, but what you need to know
| for this is that the hammer reaches level 3 strictly through use - you don't
| need to upgrade it at all. But, it takes a ton of uses to level the hammer
| to level 3. You likely won't level your hammer to level 3 in the first month
| unless you go to the mine frequently, since the hammer only gains levels when
| it is used to break actual rocks.
|
| Fortunately, though, the boulder automatically disappears the night before
| the first Animal Festival on Spring 28. Chances are you won't level your
| hammer to level 3 naturally by this time, so the best course of action is
| typically to just wait until the Animal Festival.
|
| The only real reason to smash the boulder early is if Kathy or Renee are your
| choice for marriage, and you want to get their heart levels up in order to
| ask them to the first Fireworks Display. In this case, you might want to
| expend your extra stamina each day in the mine by using your hammer to level
| it up as quickly as possible.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {STM} _
| Shortcut to Mine Area
|
| At the beginning of the game, Caramel River District (where your farm is) and
| Ganache Mine District (where the mines, Souffle Farm and other shops are)
| border other, but yet aren't accessible directly from one another: a big log
| blocks access from one to another. You can still get to Ganache Mine
| District, but you have to go west through Maple Lake District.
|
| Unlike the boulder in front of Brownie Ranch, moving the log (which, as
| you later learn, is actually a root) only requires you to talk to people.
| After examining the log by pressing A next to it (and automatically talking
| to Gill), simply go to the Carpenter's Shop during operating hours. You'll
| automatically experience a few scenes that will trigger the root's removal.
|
| Be warned, however. Do NOT examine the root before meeting Dale at the
| Carpenter's Shop. Doing so may trigger a glitch where the scene will never
| trigger, and therefore the root will never be removed, making your game a lot
| more difficult. No word yet on whether this has been fixed in the re-release
| that fixed the Calvin Glitch.

|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {TIS} _
| Toucan Island
|
| Toucan Island is unlocked by completing Daren's rainbow, and is probably
| the most significant unlockable area. You'll learn more about completing the
| rainbows later in this guide.
|
| Unlike the other areas unlocked by rainbows, Toucan Island is not directly
| accessible over the rainbow. Instead, completing Daren's rainbow simply
| starts the Ferry back running, and the Ferry takes you to the island. This
| Ferry also ushers new characters onto the island.
|
| Given that the Ferry is required to access the island, Toucan Island is only
| accessible while the Ferry is running. Fortunately, it's open almost all the
| time (6:00AM to 10:00PM), but is unavailable on Mondays (although you can be
| there on Monday if you stay all night on Sunday).
|
| Toucan Island is the home to several new characters: Sue and Samson run the
| inn on the island, while Selena is their daughter (but spends most of her
| time on the main island). The inn on the island also sells several new and
| rare seeds, and certain items found on the beach can't be found anywhere
| else, like bananas, pineapples and coconuts. Make sure to check out the hill
| behind the inn - it blends in a bit, but it's the only place to get coconuts
| and to meet the panda.
|
| Toucan Island also provides probably the second-best fishing location in the
| game, offering access to several new fish.
|
| For information on the rainbow itself, see the goddess section (search for
| < GOD > without the spaces).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {WGI} _
| West Gull Island
|
| West Gull Island is also unlocked by completing Daren's rainbow. It's
| accessible directly by walking over the rainbow.
|
| Unlike Toucan Island, West Gull Island introduces no new characters. Its
| only features are a few fruits (grapes, oranges) and another rainbow sprite,
| Collin. You can also find a new potential pet (a squirrel - great), and some
| new fish - but finding a spot to fish from can be difficult. Try the angles
| that jut out a bit towards the ocean, but also know that the best fishing in
| the game is on the next Gull Island.
|
| For information on the rainbow itself, see the goddess section (search for
| < GOD > without the spaces).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {EGI} _
| East Gull Island
|
| East Gull Island has even fewer features than West Gull Island: its only real
| practical purpose is as a new fishing spot (although it does provide another
| location to gather beach forageables).
|
| East Gull Island is actually the destination of Collin's (the yellow one)
| rainbow tree. However, it's also where you find Ben's (the blue one, and
| probably the second rainbow you'll complete) badge (the item that allows you
| to cross the rainbow), so it must be accessed before Ben's rainbow is
| crossed.
|
| (Just to make sure you're keeping up - Daren's rainbow is usually completed
| first, and lets you access Toucan Island and West Gull Island. Ben's rainbow,
| found in Maple Lake District, is usually completed second, but you can't
| cross it until you complete Collin's rainbow, which is usually completed
| third. Collin's rainbow starts on West Gull Island, so you can't make it
| until you create Daren's. Make sense? The 'order' is mostly based on when the
| different items for the rainbows become available.)
|
| As mentioned above, East Gull Island is the game's best fishing spot. Some
| fish can only be found here (Angler Fish, Rock Lobster, Sea Bream), while
| others are much more common here than at other spots (Shark, Swordfish,
| Tuna).
|
| For information on the rainbow itself, see the goddess section (search for
| < GOD > without the spaces).

|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {MGB} _
| Mt. Gelato Base and the Goddess Spring
|
| The base of Mt. Gelato is accessible once you get Ben's (the blue sprite,
| whose rainbow is usually completed second) badge from East Gull Island.
| While it doesn't introduce any new characters, it's the home of several
| adoptable pets (bear, rabbit, weasel, raccoon), a new forageable item (Bamboo
| Shoot), and most notably, the second mine and the goddess spring.
|
| The Base of Mt. Gelato is a pretty big area - there's a large field at the
| base where you can meet the animals and gather Shining Bamboo Shoots and
| mushrooms.
|
| To the north of that is a rocky, curvy path. Along this path are rocks and
| trees you can break and chop, but these won't re-spawn like the ones in
| Praline Forest.
|
| Past this path is a log that you must walk across without falling to
| progress - it isn't that difficult, and it's best to run across it rather
| than walk slowly. Usually you can cross it by just tilting the control stick
| down and to the left into the bottom-left notch on the stick area, with maybe
| a slightly tilt more toward the left. It isn't as hard as it sounds or looks.
|
| Past the log is a fork in the road. To the right is Mt. Gelato Mine; to the
| left is a bear, followed by the goddess spring. Let's start with the right.
|
| Mt. Gelato Mine is just like Ganache Mine, except that it's deeper, has rarer
| items, and is easier to descend. One you have access to Mt. Gelato Mine,
| you'll never want to go to Ganache Mine again, except possibly to gather
| mushrooms.
|
| While the Mine is straightforward, the spring is a bit more complicated.
| Blocking the goddess spring is a bear that won't let you pass until you
| befriend her - to befriend her, you need to give her 14 honeys. You can't
| give more than 2 per day, so you're looking at 7 trips to give her honey.
| Remember, honey can be purchased at Brownie Ranch (for some bizarre reason).
| The bear can also be befriended by giving it 28 fish (maximum 4 per day), but
| that's harder to do than 14 honeys.
|
| Once you befriend the bear, you can access the goddess spring and its first
| treasure: a power berry, the sparkle on the ground. Aside from the Power
| Berry, the goddess spring is where you catch the Woodfish, an ingredient in
| Alan's rainbow, which has to be completed fourth because you can't get to the
| Woodfish until you create Daren's, Collin's and Ben's rainbows. The goddess
| spring is also where a lot of other plot events happen later, but those
| aren't important now.
|
| Once you've accessed the base of Mt. Gelato the first time, you can create
| a shortcut back to the main island so you don't have to walk up the rainbow
| every time. There's a boulder between Mt. Gelato and Caramel River District,
| over by the Mountain plot on the east side; there's no room to smash it from
| the farm side (thus why you haven't smashed it yet), but it can be smashed
| from the Mt. Gelato side, allowing you easier access from now on.
|
| For information on the rainbow itself, see the goddess section (search for
| < GOD > without the spaces).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {MGP} _
| Mt. Gelato Peak and Tree Top
|
| The final unlockable area is the top of Mt. Gelato, accessed by completing
| Alan's (the red one) rainbow. The only thing here is the fifth and final
| sprite - completing his rainbow leads to the top of the tree, where you'll
| discover there's much more to do before the goddess tree is revived. But
| that's a topic for another section.
|
| For information on the rainbows, see the goddess section (search for < GOD >
| without the spaces).

| /
|/One of the key details that separates Harvest Moon from the vast majority
| of other video games in the world is that time actually flows as you play.
| Whenever you're not inside your own house (where time mysteriously stops),
| you'll find that time is continuously progressing. The exact ratio is:
|
| 10 Real-Time Seconds = 20 Game-Time Minutes
|
| Or, essentially, one second real-time is two minutes in the game. It's a
| pretty easy conversion. This is pretty different from past Harvest Moon
| games, where one real-second was one game-minute.
|
| You'll wake up each morning promptly at 6AM, regardless of when you went
| to bed, though the longer you sleep, the more stamina you'll recover; see
| the Character Mechanics section for more information (search for [ STA ]
| without the spaces).
|
| Time is critical in the game. Depending on the time of day, different
| characters are in different spots - for example, a character might take
| a stroll in the morning before going to work, then spend the evenings at
| the beach. The time of day will dictate where you can find them.
|
| Time of day also plays a role in store opening and closings; stores aren't
| open all hours of the day: they have hours just like in real life. Make
| sure to plan accordingly or you might find yourself arriving at a store
| after it's closed for the night.
|
| Just as time flows through the day, the days change also. Just like in our
| real world, there are 7 days in a week, with 4 weeks in each month. Unlike
| the real world, though, there are only 4 months in each year, named Spring,
| Summer, Fall and Winter.
|
| The day of the week impacts the game just like time of day does: some stores
| will be closed on certain days, and some villagers will have specific
| routines for specific days. For example, a villager might go to the church
| on Sundays, but work the rest of the days of the week.
|
| Certain days of the year will also have specific events, called festivals.
| Festivals typically occur on a specific day, at a specific place, at a
| specific time, so make sure you're there at that time to take part in the
| festivities.
|
| The four months in the game go along with the four seasons: Fall, Winter,
| Spring and Summer. The months significantly impact your routine: certain
| crops will only grow in certain seasons, for example. Weather patterns
| change from season to season as well - hurricanes are possible in the
| summer, whereas blizzards are a constant threat in the winter.

|/Weather plays an important role in Tree of Tranquility. Depending on the
| weather outside, you may find that you don't need to water crops for the
| day, but that you should also avoid heavy labor to reduce the chance of
| getting sick. Don't worry if you don't understand some of the things this
| section is referring to yet, though - you will as you play the game.
|
| Weather falls into several different categories, with different weather types
| happening in certain seasons. An interesting note about the weather in this
| game is that Toucan Island is always sunny, even during typhoons and
| blizzards.
|
| The weather for the next day is set when you wake up the previous day; so, if
| you save every night, you can reload your game from the night before if the
| weather turns out to be very bad the following day - for example, if on Fall
| 10 you observe through the weather channel or telephone that the weather on
| Fall 11 will be a typhoon, you can reload your save from the night of Fall 9
| to reset Fall 11's weather. This can be annoying when you don't have the
| phone since you have to wait until 6:00PM to find out the next day's weather.
| Additionally, Gill will alert you if the following day is going to be very
| bad weather (typhoon or blizzard) if you talk to him.

|/As the game goes on, tasks to be completed will separate themselves out
| into two groups: tasks to be completed once (or once-in-a-while), and tasks
| to be completed daily. Tasks to be completed once are tasks like planting
| crops (which you plant, then water for a few days before they grow), buying
| certain tools, and breeding animals. These are tasks where completing them
| once has implications for several days or weeks afterwards.
|
| The other type of task is daily tasks. These are tasks that can or need
| to be completed every day for maximum impact. Some of them might need to be
| completed every day to avoid consequences (e.g. feeding animals, watering
| plants), whereas others can be completed once a day to reap rewards (e.g.
| giving gifts, brushing animals).
|
| As you progress in the game, try to settle into a daily routine of
| tasks you want to complete every day. Below is a list of such actions that
| could become part of your routine. Note also that this section is my personal
| advice and analysis, not something really determined by the game.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {CHO} _
| Chores
|
| Watering the Plants: when you're growing crops (which should be most of
|    the time), make sure to water them on every non-rainy day. If you miss
|    a day, it will take one day longer for the crop to eventually produce
|    the final fruit/vegetable. If you miss several days in a row, the plant
|    may die altogether. For more information, see the Farming section.
|
| Taking Care of the Animals: this is a pretty broad category and largely
|    dependent on what, if any, animals you have. But some tasks under this
|    heading that can be done once you have the corresponding animals are:
|     - Feeding the chickens/ducks/silkworms.
|     - Feeding the cows/sheep/goats/ostriches/horses.
|     - Brushing the cows/sheep/goats/ostriches/horses.
|     - Talking to the cows/sheep/goats/ostriches/horses.
|     - Collecting the eggs/silk.
|     - Collecting milk/wool.
|     - Take animals outside/put animals inside (depending on the weather).
|    For more information, see the Animals section.
|
| Extra Money-Making: if you have the time and need the money, there are
|    other activities that can be done every day to get extra items to ship
|    or give. These activities are things like Mining (see Mining section),
|    Foraging (see Foraging section), Fishing (see Fishing section) or
|    working part-time jobs (see, you guessed it, Part-Time Jobs).

| Giving Gifts to Villagers: villagers are so vain, they probably think this
|    guide is about them. The chief way of making friends (and wooing mates)
|    is giving gifts, so try to make giving gifts part of your daily routine
|    (note: not giving gifts to EVERYONE every day, but a few gifts per day).
|    These can be things you find (like flowers and herbs), products from
|    your farm, or things you buy. Check the Villagers section for more
|    information on what each villager likes - and don't worry, it's really not
|    necessary to give gifts to everyone, but it sure makes the game more
|    enjoyable.
|
| Giving Gifts to Possible Mates: basically the same as above, but you may
|    want to put a special focus on giving your beloved a gift every day to
|    help woo him/her faster. Again, check the Villagers section for
|    information on what each bachelor and bachelorette likes.
|
| Giving Birthday Presents: and again, basically the same as above, but you
|    receive an extra friendship boost for giving a villager a gift on their
|    birthday, so you might try to make it a point of giving every villager
|    a gift on their special day. The Villagers section has every birthday
|    listed, and the reference section has a calendar of just birthdays.

| Introduction to Farming                                                     |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Farming is where it all begins, in more ways than one. It's the cornerstone
| of the game's early development (although cows later take the crown as most
| profitable), and it's likely to take the largest portion of your in-game
| time.
|
| The concept behind farming is simple: plant crops, water them daily, and
| wait for them to grow. When they mature, pick the fruit or vegetable from
| them and sell it (or give it, or use it in a recipe - whatever you'd like
| to do, though the majority of your crops will likely end up getting sold).
|
| In planting crops, there are a couple aspects to pay attention to. First
| of all, pay attention to seasons. Different crops grow in different
| seasons - although unlike past Harvest Moon games, crops can grow in seasons
| other than their "main" season. For example, strawberries - a Spring crop,
| can grow in Summer as well. However, it's always more profitable to plant
| crops in their "main" season, so focus on doing that.
|
| Secondly, there are two types of crops: there are one-time sprouting crops
| and there are re-growing crops. One-time crops are crops whose soil is
| returned to normal after picking them - a new crop can be planted in its
| spot once it's picked. Re-growing crops are more like vines - when you
| pick the fruit or vegetable, the vine stays behind and grows another fruit
| after a few more days. Typically, re-growing crops are more profitable, as
| the time to grow a second fruit from a single vine or stalk is usually
| much shorter than the time to grow a whole-new crop.
|
| If this is still confusing, consider this example: potatoes vs. corn. For
| potatoes, you plant a single seed in the ground, wait a few days and pull the
| potato: one seed, one potato. For the corn, though, you plant a single seed
| in the ground and a corn stalk grows. The corn grows from this stalk, but
| when you pick the corn, the stalk remains - allowing another ear of corn to
| grow a few days later.
|
| Farming is especially prevalent in Spring and Summer, and has become more
| relevant in Fall in recent Harvest Moon games. Winter, though, is the down
| season for farming - with snow on the ground, not much will grow, so make
| sure you either have enough money saved up or enough animals in your barn
| to keep you through winter. Unlike past Harvest Moon games, there are Winter
| crops, but they aren't very profitable at all.
|
| Crops that grow have different qualities: Decent, Good, Perfect and Shining.
| The crop quality will depend on what soil quality the crop is planted in.
| Poor soil (light and sandy looking) will usually give Decent crops; Decent
| soil (a bit darker) will usually give Good crops; and Good soil (very deep
| and brown) will usually give Perfect crops. Good soil will also rarely give
| you Shining crops. Higher-quality crops sell for more and are liked by more
| villagers as gifts.

| the Farming section (search for < FRM > without the spaces).

| Introduction to Ranching                                                    |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Second only to farming comes ranching. Ranching (in my terminology at
| least) is the animal side of running your farm.
|
| At the beginning of the game, you lack any of the necessary accouterments to
| begin running a ranch. However, these can be built by talking to the
| carpenter (and paying him, of course). There are two ranch buildings: a
| bird coop (which houses the chickens, ducks and silkworms) and
| a barn (which houses the cows, goats, sheep, horses and ostriches). Odds are
| you'll build the bird coop first - it's cheaper, and the animals that live in
| it are cheaper and more profitable in the short-term as well.
|
| After building the necessary buildings, Brownie Ranch in its self-named
| district is the place to go. initially you'll only be able to buy select
| animals and products, but as you sell more ranch products (milk, eggs, etc.),
| Brownie Ranch will grow and sell more.
|
| The chief reason for raising animals is that they yield enormous returns
| on the investment: a single cow gives milk every single day, and they operate
| through all seasons as well, with every animal giving products all the way
| through the winter.
|
| To care for your animals, you must make sure they eat every day. On sunny
| days even in winter, you can let them out to graze in the lawn by ringing the
| big bell outside the barn. On rainy and snowy days, though, you must feed
| them in the barn and coop, either by placing feed in their trough or by
| giving the feed to them directly.
|
| Additionally, there are other things you can do to each animal to increase
| its heart level. For chickens, ducks and silkworms, all you can do is pick
| them up; but for goats, cows, ostriches, sheep and horses, you can talk to
| them and brush them. Milking cows and goats and sheering sheep also gives you
| an increase in the animal's heart level.
|
| Higher heart levels correspond to a better chance of getting better products.
| A 1-heart animal will almost always give Decent goods, while a 10-heart
| animal will give mostly Perfect goods. Even the most affectionate animal will
| only give Shining goods about 5% of the time. For horses, heart level
| controls how fast they run.
|
| Almost every animal can be bred. Cows, sheep, horses and goats are bred
| through the use of something called a "Miracle Potion". After using a
| Miracle Potion on an animal and waiting a few weeks, it will give birth to
| a baby of its own type.
|
| Chickens, ducks and ostriches are bred differently though - instead of
| a potion, simply place one of their eggs in an incubator and wait a week.
| After a week, a chick will hatch. After another week, the chick will mature
| and start giving eggs of its own.
|
| For more information on the Animals, see the Animals section. For more
| information on the buildings, see the 'Home Sweet Home' section. For more
| information on having the buildings built, see the Carpenters' section
| (under the Shops section). And for more information on Brownie Ranch,
| see the shops section (also under the Shops section).

| /
|/Beyond those two activities, there are several other ways to make money in
| your spare time - they just require venturing a little further away from
| your farm.
|
| The first of these is mining. Mining involves going to the mine and
| breaking apart rocks, many of which hold ores, precious gems or other items
| that can be sold or used in a variety of ways, such as jewelry-making.
|
| In order to mine, you only need a hammer. As you descend the mine, you'll
| come across rocks and crystals. Rocks can contain what are called Ores,
| whereas crystals can contain what are called Wonderfuls. Ores and Wonderfuls
| are refined by Mira into Metals and Gems.
|
| When you uncover an Ore or Wonderful, it may sparkle - these are the only
| Ores and Wonderfuls you're interested in. Non-sparkling ones will refine to
| junk ore or glass, neither of which are useful or profitable.
|
| A sparkling Ore will always become a Metal of that type - for example, a
| sparkling Copper Ore will always become Copper. Wonderfuls, however, can
| become different things - a purple Wonderful, for example, can become either
| a Garnet or an Amethyst. You can tell how good a Wonderful is by looking at
| it in your rucksack - one sparkle is the least-valuable gem of that color,
| while three sparkles is the most valuable.
|
| Aside from the gems and metals, you can also make lots of profit in the mines
| by picking up the mushrooms and toadstools that are lying around. Floor 19
| in Ganache Mine is especially good for profit early in the game - one trip
| down there will yield about 1500G in mushrooms and toadstools.

| < MIN > without the spaces.

|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Foraging? How can foraging be a viable moneymaking option? What are we, a
| bunch of squirrels?
|
| So many things grow in the woodlands around the village that foraging for
| little goodies can actually bring in a fair supplement to your income early
| in the game. It's not quite as useful as in past Harvest Moon games, but it
| is useful early on.
|
| There three types of forageable items, based on where you can find them and
| what they are. First off, there regular forageable items - these are herbs
| and berries, and are available in Praline Forest and Brownie Ranch. Secondly,
| there are beach items, like seashells, clams and pearls. These are, clearly,
| found on all the beaches. And lastly, there are mountain items, which are
| Bamboo Shoots, mushrooms and toadstools. These are only found on Mt. Gelato
| (with the exception of mushrooms and toadstools also being in the mines).
| Toucan Island has some items on the hill behind the inn as well.
|
| These items serve other purposes as well: certain recipes require them, and
| they also can make great gifts if you choose the recipient well. Recipes are
| perhaps the best use for most of them, although herbs are an ingredient in
| one of the easiest yet well-liked gifts in the game (Herbal Tea).
|
| A complete listing of all the forageable items, their sale prices, and
| their locations is in the Foraging section (search for { FOR } without the
| spaces).

|/Fishing is a favorite past time in Harvest Moon. After obtaining the
| fishing rod from Toby, you'll be able to fish in any of the bodies of water
| around the island: the ocean, the river, or the lakes.
|
| Fishing plays an extremely large role in Tree of Tranquility; every rainbow
| recipe involves a fish, and multiple characters' entire professions and lives
| are based around fishing. There are 41 different fish that can be caught of
| varying sale prices, rarity and cooking usage. There are also some
| crustaceans that can be caught.
|
| To fish, simply approach a body of water and cast your line. Wait until you
| notice a bite (a sound will play, the controller will vibrate and there will
| be an icon on screen), then hold the WiiMote vertically until the fish is
| reeled in. If you're using the classic controller, press A repeatedly
| instead.

| /
|/Tree of Tranquility introduces an interesting part-time job system to the
| Harvest Moon franchise. Different stores in the village possess the ability
| to allow you to perform part-time jobs for the store, doing small tasks and
| receiving compensation.
|
| The benefits of these part-time jobs aren't limited to just monetary
| rewards; if you work in the shop where you prospective spouse works or
| lives, you'll gain affection points towards increasing their heart level.
| Your pay at a given store is also correlated to the affection level of the
| person who runs the store, so the more you work in a store, the more they'll
| pay.
|
| When working part-time, you won't actually do any chores; you'll see a
| montage of yourself working. You'll always work until closing time, so be
| careful with shops that stay open late, like On the Hook and Sundae Bar.

|/Typically, your character operates based on two variables: stamina and
| fatigue. 
|
| At this point, I should note the terms "stamina" and "fatigue" are
| borrowed from Sky Render's terminology from his incredible guide to Harvest
| Moon: Back to Nature. If you're ever playing either Back to Nature or Boys
| and Girls, his guide comes highly recommended - you can find it over on
| Game FAQs, specifically at this shortened URL: tinyurl.com/5zp28c
| Incidentally, the most up-to-date version of this guide will also always
| be posted at this shortened URL: tinyurl.com/HM-ToT-Guide. Certain other
| sites like to claim they have the most up-to-date version, but only that
| URL is guaranteed to have it (as that's the only place I upload it too).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {STA} _
| Stamina
|
| Your character operates on a type of points system that indicates how much
| stamina he has at a given time. Stamina, in turn, controls how much work
| your character can perform. You begin the game with 500 stamina points (which
| are typically restored every night), and your actions throughout the day
| will drain your stamina.
|
| There are two actions that consume stamina:
| - Using any tool (certain tools, like the axe or hammer, use more stamina
|   than others, like the watering can or fishing pole). However, it's notable
|   that the charge level of the tool does not impact how much stamina it
|   consumes, surprisingly enough. That means using a Level 1 axe takes the
|   same amount of stamina as using a Level 5 axe, even when fully charged.
| - Picking up objects, especially weeds.
|
| As you lose stamina, two animations will take place: at 150 points, your
| character will say "I'm tired" and begin to look tired in his portrait. At
| 50 points, he will say "I could collapse at any moment" and begin to look
| dead in his portrait.
|
| Likewise, there are four actions that restore stamina:
| - Sleeping.
| - Eating (different foods restore different amounts of stamina).
| - The Hot Springs (restores all stamina, but can only be used once per day).
| - Eating a Power Berry (restores all stamina and permanently raises stamina
|   by 100 points)
|
| mister_jmp has done a lot of research on how exactly stamina operates in
| Tree of Tranquility. He has come up with the following information, presented
| to you in convenient chart form:
|
| Action                      Stamina
| Eating/Drinking             +/- the stamina value listed for the food
| Sleeping                    +  3 per minute slept
| Using the Hot Spring        +999
| Eating a Power Berry        +999
| Get Hit by Yellow Mine Gas  +100
| Get Hit by Green Mine Gas   +300

| Picking Up an Item          -  1
| Sowing Seeds                -  2
| Pulling a Weed              - 40
| Watering Can
|   Standard                  - 20
|   Iron                      - 15
|   Copper                    - 10
|   Silver                    -  5
|   Gold                      -  3
| Hoe/Axe
|   Standard                  - 30
|   Iron                      - 25
|   Copper                    - 20
|   Silver                    - 15
|   Gold                      - 10
| Hammer/Sickle
|   Standard                  - 25
|   Iron                      - 20
|   Copper                    - 15
|   Silver                    - 10
|   Gold                      -  5
| Brush                       -  5
| Milker/Shears               - 15
| Get Hit By Red Mine Gas     - 20 / - 50 (varies)
| Falling Off Mt. Gelato Log  - 50
|
| The bar at the bottom right of the screen corresponds to your stamina. When
| it is depleted, your character will collapse. You'll show up in the clinic,
| where Jin will exhort you for working too hard. Then you'll wake up the next
| morning with full stamina.
|
| There's really no negative consequences to running out of stamina besides
| losing the rest of the day and not being able to save or ship the stuff you
| haven't put in the shipping bin. So, if you're working late in the mine or
| fishing, you don't need to be too afraid of running out of stamina.
|
| To increase total stamina, you can obtain Power Berries that lengthen your
| stamina meter. Each Power Berry you obtain increases your stamina by 100
| points, for a maximum of 1000 stamina points. For information on how to find
| these Power Berries, see the Power Berries section (search for { POW }
| without the spaces).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FAT} _
| Fatigue
|
| Fatigue operates similar to stamina; however, fatigue corresponds to
| something different: the easiest analogy is that Stamina corresponds to
| tiredness while Fatigue corresponds to sleepiness.
|
| When your fatigue hits a certain value, you'll start to walk extremely
| slowly, about on the same order as when you have less than 50 stamina points.
| Typically, after one full night's sleep, you'll have enough energy to stay
| awake all through one day and into the next, but at the start of the second
| day you'll hit your limit and get fatigued. Basically, your character sucks
| at all-nighters.
|
| Fatigue is accumulated two ways: staying up all night, and eating mushrooms
| (and possibly other foods). As soon as you hit 6:00AM, you'll become drowsy.
| Additionally, if you eat too many mushrooms you'll become drowsy as well.
| Both these operate on a points system (detailed below).
|
| The actual points system behind stamina is not fully known, but mister_jmp
| and I have devised a fatigue system that seems to model it accurately.
|
| Your character begins the day with 20 fatigue points, similar to the initial
| 500 stamina points. When your character's fatigue points drop to 5 points,
| your character will become drowsy and start to shuffle around slowly. Note
| that fatigue points cannot drop below 0, but there are no additional ill
| effects to falling below 5.
|
| Action                       Fatigue
| Eating One Mushroom            - 1
| Eating One Toadstool           -10
| Staying Up All Night           -20
|
| Using the Hot Springs          + 0 (no effect)
| Sleeping                       +20
| Eating One Herb (Any Color)    + 1
| Eating One Pontata Root        + 4
|
| Drinking One Tomato Juice,     + 4
|   Very Berry Juice, Coconut
|   Juice or Vegetable Juice
|
| Drinking One Pineapple Juice   + 6
| Drinking One Herbal Tea        + 6
| Drinking One Stay Awake        +10
| Drinking One Super Stay Awake  +20
| Drinking One Bodigizer XL      +20
|
| Mushrooms are still effective for stamina restoration when you're in the
| mine, but pay attention to how many you're eating if you don't have a
| restoration item on you. Note, however, that Pontata Roots can be found in
| the mines, and moles will occasionally drop Stay Awakes when you hit them
| with a hammer.
|
| Fatigue is also correlated to illness. Essentially, getting drowsy (fatigue
| dropping below 5 points) while it's raining or snowing will result in illness
| even if you don't go outside. The exception appears to be working in the
| mine, which never results in illness.
|
| After three days of all-nighters, your character will be forced to go to bed
| regardless of your fatigue.

|/Like in A Wonderful Life, rather than having specific parts of your
| rucksack for tools and for items, your rucksack has simply a maximum
| capacity, and every item takes up one space. Slots are stackable though,
| meaning that having 10 of an item (such as a crop) takes up the same amount
| of rucksack space as having only one of that item.
|
| At the beginning of the game, you have 10 spots in your rucksack; the
| maximum obtainable is 30, with several intermediate sizes (15, 20 and 25).
|
| Rucksack upgrades are obtained at the Tailor Shop, similar to how tools are
| upgraded at the Blacksmith. To upgrade your rucksack, you need to supply the
| required amount different types of yarn. For more information on obtaining
| rucksack upgrades, see the Tailor Shop price list (search for { TAL } without

|
| There is also a special rucksack obtainable much later in the game; creating
| this special rucksack (which requires you to first complete the goddess
| quest) and having a child allows you to trigger a New Game+ option, where
| you'll restart the game as your child on a new island, retaining your current
| money and any Makers you've purchased. Your personal character won't look any
| different though, and the village is identical (yes, same characters), so
| besides the name change this functions exactly as a standard New Game+.

|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Before you can manage your property, you have to choose where you want your
| initial house to be located. You'll initially have three farm plots to choose
| from, and there's a fourth that you have the option of purchasing later.
|
| All four farm plots lie on the eastern side of the island in Caramel River
| District, lying on either side of the river and bordering the ocean.
|
| Each plot has some advantages and disadvantages, but every plot has certain
| characteristics:
|
|  - All plots can fit your three main buildings (level 5 house, bird coop and
|    barn) - this isn't like Magical Melody where one of the plots couldn't fit
|    everything.
|
|  - All plots have a field for crops, and the soil quality of all plots is
|    rather random.
|
|  - All plots have a field of grass. This starts growing automatically when
|    you build a barn or coop. Yes, the grass is psychic.
|
| Beyond this, the plots have two subtle differences: field size and proximity
| to other areas of the island. Field size isn't as relevant as you'd expect:
| early in the game you won't have the time, strength or funds to plant your
| entire field, and by the time you do have enough you'll be able to afford
| to buy another plot if you need it.
|
| So the most relevant detail about which plot you choose is its proximity to
| different locations. Each of the locations below has some notable
| characteristic that it can be useful to have nearby.
|
|  - The Town is probably most useful, given that it's where most of the shops
|     and villagers can be found.
|
|  - The Hot Spring is important early, given that it can completely your
|     stamina once per day.
|
|  - The Mine area holds the couple shops that aren't in Town - mainly the
|    Carpenter's Shop and the Blacksmith. And, obviously, it holds the mine
|    itself.
|
|  - Different fish can be caught in the river and the ocean. The river runs
|    through the island, while the ocean lies along the south edge.
|
|  - The only location of frequent interest in the Gelato area is the second
|    mine, so it doesn't present a huge interest as far as initial location.
|
| Personally, I choose the Town Plot, but it and the Hilltop Plot are about
| equal in their pros and cons, and themselves are only 20 minutes apart.
| There's really no good reason to choose the Seaside plot, other than how
| picturesque it is.
|
| Later in the game, it's good to remember that when you own multiple plots,
| you can sleep in the house nearest your first chore the next day. So if you
| plan to spend a day mining, you can sleep in the Mountain Plot's house, or
| if you plan to spend a day fishing, you can sleep in the Seaside Plot's
| house. If you're married, though, you'll want to stay home most nights given
| that your spouse will only stay at your main home.
|
| The locations listed below correspond to the location relative to the others
| in the farmland half of the map. The four plots are arranged somewhat like
| a diamond, allowing one to be called 'North', one 'South', etc.

|
| The house is expanded in levels, with each level costing a certain amount

| depend on the size of your house, except that expanding allows you to have
| more pets.
|
| The house has 5 levels, each bigger and more expensive than the last. The

| Initial Possessions
|
| Initially your possessions are pretty meager. You have your bed and a dresser
| where your diary is kept, a bookcase, a toolbox and a table with some chairs.
| You also have a kitchen counter-type thing, but it's not movable. So
| initially your possessions are rather slim - unlike past Harvest Moon games,
| you don't even start with a television or calendar, let alone a dog or horse.
| You do receive a bag of potato seeds, though, to get you started.
|
| You do start with the ability to get free tools from several sources,
| however. You obtain the watering can and hoe during the opening scenes, and
| you can get the fishing rod for free from Toby (meet him by walking down the
| stairs near the beach), axe from Luke (meet him in Praline Forest), hammer
| from Owen (meet him outside the Blacksmith's Shop) and the sickle from the
| folks at Brownie Ranch, once you can access it.

| Furniture
|
| You start with relatively meager possessions, but you can purchase more
| furniture as the game goes on. Whenever you buy a new piece of furniture -
| including shelves, wardrobes, tables, beds, chairs, refrigerators,
| televisions, telephones, calendars and cooking utensils - you must set it out
| before it will be available to use.
|
| To do this, examine the diary by your bedside table and select Furniture.
| This will give you a list of all the furniture you own. From there, select
| an item, then position it in your house. Spots where you can't place the
| furniture will appear in Red, and the game is strangely restrictive on where
| furniture can go.
|
| For cooking utensils, note that you must place them on the counter.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {COK} _
| Cooking
|
| One major task that can only be performed in your house is cooking. Since you
| have a kitchen in your new house, you can immediately start buying cooking
| tools from the General Store. These tools allow you to cook different dishes.
|
| Cooking is a relatively simple process. First, choose which cooking utensil
| you'll be using (note that these tools must be set out in your house before
| you can use them - for information on this, refer to the Furniture section
| above); every recipe requires only one utensil. Then, add in your ingredients
| from your rucksack. If your ingredients (with that utensil) are a viable
| recipe, you'll receive one of it; if not, you'll receive a "Weird Dish"/
| "Failed Dish/"Failed Soup", all of which are gifts no one likes. Before
| making your recipe with a set of ingredients, though, you can hit the Recipe
| option to see if it will give you something edible.
|
| Obtaining recipes is rather simple and can be done in a multitude of ways,
| including:
|   - From the TV (the cooking show is from 10:00AM to 2:00PM on weekdays).
|   - Examine other peoples' kitchen utensils.
|   - Purchase a dish (or receive it as a gift).
|   - Experiment! If you "accidentally" make a real dish, it's added as well.
|
| When you've obtained a recipe, it's added to your list of available recipes
| for easy selection later.
|
| Cooking doesn't have to be done in the kitchen; it can also be done in the
| fire boxes on every beach. Simply toss some matches in the box, then toss
| one of the other ingredients (see Recipes reference section) for a Roasted
| version of that item. This is mostly for fish, but Corn, Eggplant, Chestnuts
| and Clams can be cooked this way too.
|
| For more information on kitchen utensils, see the General Store section
| under Shops (search for { SUP } without the spaces); for cooking information,
| check under Cooking (search for < COK > without the spaces); for recipes, see
| the recipe list under References (search for { REC } without the spaces).

| but what's shown on that channel varies from day to day. The TV schedule
| is:
|
|  6:00AM - 10:00AM : Current Weather Forecast
| 10:00AM -  2:00PM : Rainbow Cooking (weekdays)/Mastery of Beauty (weekends)

| Storage Space
|
| As you go throughout the game, you'll collect several items in several
| categories. You can carry anything in your rucksack, but what if you want to
| save it longer-term? Fortunately, there are several options as far as storage
| space goes.
|
| There are five different types of storage units:
|
|      Cabinets : Cabinets can store any non-food item, including tools.
|     Wardrobes : Wardrobes store clothes and jewelry.
|   Bookshelves : Bookshelves store books you receive and completion lists.
| Refrigerators : Refrigerators can store any food item.
|       Toolbox : The toolbox can store any rucksack item, food and non-food.
|
| Storage units (and other furniture) is bought from the Carpenter's Shop and
| some festivals. It must be set out before it can be used. For information on
| setting storage units out, see the Furniture section above.

| Mailbox
|
| Your house also comes with a mailbox sitting outside. Occasionally, you'll
| receive letters from the area villagers, informing you of various events,
| like new villager arrivals and increased store inventories.
|
| When you receive a letter, a bouncing letter icon will appear over the
| mailbox. To view the letter, approach the front of the mailbox and press A.
| The letter text will appear.
|
| All letters you receive are kept in your bookshelf for later reading. A
| complete list of all the letters in the game can be found in the Lists
| section (search for < LIS > without the spaces).

| /
|/Every possible starting location has a field close to it where you'll be
| doing most of your initial work. Fields are typically plagued by three
| obstacles: weeds, rocks and trees. Weeds are easy enough to get rid of
| (either pull them up by hand or use the sickle), but rocks and trees can be
| be more difficult. Both rocks and trees can be destroyed by any level hammer
| and axe, but require many, many strikes for low-level tools. Early in the
| game, it can take an entire day's worth of stamina just to destroy a couple
| trees and rocks.
|
| Periodically, weeds will spring up in your field and new little tree saplings
| will appear. These will slow down the growth of any crops near them, so it's
| best to destroy them when they appear. Pulling weeds uses a lot of stamina,
| so use the sickle instead if you've gotten it from Cain.
|
| The boundaries of your field should be relatively clear: it's the darker
| brown area that forms the majority of your property. If you're somehow
| unsure whether a certain spot of ground is field or just regular ground,
| try tilling it: if it tills, it's field. However, you can only till a field
| once you own it.
|
| There are four fields total on the island: you start with one, and the other
| three can be purchased later. Note also that the field that corresponds to
| the Seaside plot is south of the house on the little peninsula. Many people
| mistakenly think that the Mountain plot is their field, and are confused when
| they are unable to till it. Rule of thumb: you never have to cross a bridge
| to get from your house to your field.

|/Initially, you won't actually have a bird coop - you have to first have one
| built by the carpenter. This coop can subsequently be upgraded to a larger
| coop - the small coop holds 8 birds and 6 silkworms, while the larger can
| hold 12 birds and 8 silkworms. As always, more information on this can be
| found in the Carpenter's shop section under Shops (search for { CAR } without
| the spaces).
|
| Once you have the coop built, you can start populating it with chickens,
| ducks and silkworms (although you won't be able to buy ducks until the Ranch
| levels up). The main notable parts of the coop are the feeding trough/spout
| and the shipping bin. The feeding trough is for putting bird feed in, 
| although it's better to hand-feed your animals by giving the food to them
| directly. Feed is taken out of the feed spout at the back of the coop.
|
| The shipping bin is for easier shipping of bird products. Later on, the coop
| will also house a mayonnaise maker that can be used to make your eggs into
| mayonnaise, which sells for higher profits.
|
| Note that the number of chickens/ducks you have does not affect how many
| silkworms you can have, or vice versa. You can have up to 8 birds in a
| regular coop and still have up to 6 silkworms. Having fewer of either won't
| let you have more of the other.

| carpenter build this too. The barn can initially hold 6 animals, but can
| be upgraded later to hold 8.
|
| Once you have the barn built, you can start populating it with cows, sheep,
| ostriches, goats and horses. The notable parts of the barn mirror those of
| the coop: a shipping bin, a feeding spout and a feeding trough for each
| animal; pretty straightforward. The barn also has a special corner for
| pregnant animals to stay in during the course of the pregnancy, complete with
| a special feeding trough. There's also a special ostrich egg incubator.
|
| The barn also has a big bell on both the outside: ringing this bell will
| automatically put all the animals outside in the field (or if they're already
| outside, move them back inside).

|/As mentioned above, several parts of your farm must be either built or
| extended, including the house, bird coop and barn. In order to do this, you
| need three things: money, wood lumber and stone lumber.
|
| Each extension costs a certain amount of money, but you must also have a
| certain amount of wood and stone lumber. Lumber is obtained by destroying
| the stones and stumps around the village; these can be found on your farm
| in the field (these won't reappear once you've destroyed them) and around
| the island. You can chop trees and bust stones in Praline Forest and on Mt.
| Gelato, but only the ones in Praline Forest will regenerate.
|
| When chopping or smashing, it's not necessary to manually take the lumber
| back to your farm; it's automatically transported. You do, however, need to
| pick up the wood and stone once you've busted the rock or chopped down the
| tree. The stump that's left over once you've chopped down a tree can be
| destroyed with a couple more axe strikes.

|/Tree of Tranquility introduces an interesting new feature: several shops will
| will stock better products based on your sales patterns. Stores that this
| applies to are Souffle Farm, Brownie Ranch and the General Store.
|
| Each shop starts as a one-star shop and levels up as you ship their specific
| type of good. It takes 5000G shipped to level a shop to two stars, and
| another 5000G (10000G total) to level it to three stars.
|
| To level up Brownie Ranch, you need to sell ranch products, like eggs, milk,
| and wool, as well as processed products, like yarn, mayonnaise and cheese.
| Leveling up Brownie Ranch grants access to new animals, like ostriches and
| silkworms.
|
| To level up Souffle Farm, you need to sell farm products, like any crop,
| herb or flower grown on your own farm. Leveling up Souffle Farm grants
| access to new flowers and fertilizer.
|
| To level up the General Store, you need to ship basically anything else. Mine
| products are especially lucrative for increasing the General Store's rating.
| Leveling up the General Store grants access to new books, mostly.

|/Before you start planting and watering your seeds, there's some overhead that
| that needs to be taken care of.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {CYF} _
| Choosing Your Field
|
| The first relevant decision to your farming career is your choice of an
| initial farm location. Each farm has a different field, so your initial
| choice of home location is also your choice of your initial field.
|
| Each property has its own benefits and drawbacks; but with respect to farming
| the three fields are actually relatively even. They differ slightly in size
| (92 at the town plot, 100 at the hilltop plot and 120 at the seaside plot),
| but at the beginning of the game you won't have the stamina to till and water
| a plant in every spot anyway - and by the time you do have that much stamina,
| you'll likely be able to afford to purchase one of the secondary fields.
|
| So choose your field based on the other characteristics you're interested in
| (proximity to fishing, the hot spring, the town) instead of just field size.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {CLF} _
| Clearing Your Field
|
| Unfortunately at the beginning, your field is infested by boulders, rocks
| and trees. These need to be cleared away for more effective farming.
|
| Annoyingly, early in the game you really won't have the stamina to do some
| major field-clearing. The trees are definitely too strong, and the boulders
| will take most of your stamina to clear.
|
| One strategy is to make use of the hot spring to double your stamina for the
| day. After your chores are done, visit the hot spring and return to bust
| apart a boulder.
|
| Overall, though, you'll be forced to work around the obstacles for the first
| season or two. Eventually you'll have the money to upgrade your tools to make
| major field-clearing more feasible, as well as Power Berries that will give
| you more stamina.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {BYS} _
| Buying Seeds
|
| Seeds can be bought from a variety of places. The most prominent places are
| Souffle Farm and from Taylor, though early in the game only Souffle Farm is
| available (Taylor arrives on Winter 15 at the earliest).
|
| Souffle Farm will sell seeds according to its store level; early on, it
| only sells a limited selection of seeds and fertilizers, but as the farm
| grows in level (meaning as you sell crops), it will level up and increase its
| selection. To raise Souffle Farm to Level 2, sell 5,000G worth of produce. To
| raise it to Level 3, sell 10,000G (total, 5,000G more than before) worth of
| produce.
|
| Fortunately, this isn't a huge sum, and you'll likely have raised it to Level
| 3 by the time first Fall begins.
|
| There are a few other places to buy seeds as well. Several seeds, especially
| flower seeds, can be found at the Flower Festival on Spring 10. A few others
| can be found at the Harvest Festival and different Flea Markets throughout
| the year. A select few can only be purchased from Pineapple Inn on Toucan
| Island.
|
| And in case you forget, you can only buy from Taylor by calling him on the
| telephone: his number is 881.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {SSM} _
| Seasonal Seed Mixes
|
| Seasonal seed mixes are a bit of a gamble. They each contain every type of
| seed, and can potentially contain any seed from the season - including ones
| that aren't sold at Souffle Farm. However, there's no way of determining what
| the seeds will be, and mixed seed bags typically cost slightly more than the
| average of the crops for the season.
|
| Seasonal seed mixes will not be included in the profit analysis for each
| season, given the heavy variation involved. In general, you won't want to
| choose mixed bags of seeds for profit. Use them if you want to grow a
| particular crop or flower whose seller you haven't accessed yet  - for
| example, Taylor sells Flax seeds, but a mixed bag from Souffle Farm could
| grow Flax as well.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {CRF} _
| Crop Formations
|
| Crop formations play a lesser role in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility than
| they have in past Harvest Moon games. In past games, crop formations were
| especially crucial because your character couldn't walk over crops - so there
| was always a risk of blocking one crop from being harvested or watered.
|
| In Tree of Tranquility, though, you can walk over, around and through your
| planted crops, so planting crops with access in mind is no longer necessary.
|
| Instead, it is now more important to consider tool usage when planting
| crops. Initially your watering can can only water one square at a time, but
| as it levels up it will water different formations - a 1x3 strip (a strip of
| three directly out from in front of you, not right or left) at Level 2, a
| 3x3 square at Level 3, a 3x6 block at Level 4, and a 5x6 block at Level 5.
|
| Given that there is nothing to block you from harvesting or watering any
| crop, it really isn't necessary to plant anything besides a block of crops.
| As you level up, it actually becomes more effective to plant your crops in
| one giant block, as the watering can will touch more. Additionally, given
| that seeds are planted in a row of 6, there's never any need for the classic
| 3x3 block except as a part of a larger 3x6 block.
|
| Once you've settled on a formation, till the land, plant the seeds and start
| watering. Water your plants every day to minimize growth time - growth times
| listed in later sections will assume you water your crops every day. And
| don't forget, a bag of seeds will plant a 1x6 strip of seeds directly in
| front of you, so to maximize the profit per bag make sure to have 6 squares
| tilled.

|                                                                             |
| Mechanics                                                                   |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Like all Harvest Moon games, farming is done on a large plot of land with
| tillable soil. Each spot on the ground can hold one seed and grow one crop.
|
| But unlike past Harvest Moon games, a single bag of seeds contains enough
| seeds for 6 spots, and these are planted in a horizontal line in front of you
| (rather than a square). If you're unclear about where your seeds will land,
| press Z to check it out before pressing A to plant them.
|
| Raising crops is relatively simple: using the hoe, till a plot of soil (or
| for best results, six in a row to plant the entire bag), then use the bag
| of seeds at one end of the row to plant seeds along the tilled spots.
| Then, water the seeds each day. They will begin to sprout - keep watering
| them every day until eventually they bare fruit. You'll know they're ready to
| be plucked when you the "A" graphic appears in the top right of the screen
| as you walk by them.
|
| Seeds are purchased from several different places in and around town; prices
| vary based on the type of seed.
|
| There are some considerations to be made when choosing and planting crops:
|
|  - Crops are seasonal. If you try to plant a crop out of season, it MAY
|    sprout (with some restrictions), but it will take drastically longer to
|    grow. Additionally, no crop planted out-of-season is more profitable than
|    any in-season crop. Read the 'Growing Out of Season' section below for
|    more information.
|
|  - Different crops take different amounts of time to grow. Before planting
|    late in the season, check the growth time - no point in planting a crop
|    that takes 7 days to grow when there are only 6 days left in the season,
|    for profit at least. If you need the crop for a recipe or gift, go ahead
|    and plant - it will sprout the following season (as long as it fits the
|    rules mentioned in the 'Growing Out of Season' section below).
|
|  - Some crops re-grow. These crops have an initial growth time (time until
|    they first bear fruit) and a re-grow time (time after they bear fruit that
|    they bear fruit again). These crops tend to be more profitable, but must
|    be planted early in the season for maximum profit. You'll know that a crop
|    is multi-harvest if something remains behind when you pick its produce.
|
|  - Hurricanes and thunderstorms may destroy crops. Not all of them, just
|    random crops throughout your field. There's nothing you can do about this
|    though, unless you avoid hurricanes by saving and resetting the night
|    before. Sucks, doesn't it?
|
|  - Crops have qualities. Each crop will be rated as Decent, Good, Perfect or
|    Shining. The better the soil quality, the better the crop. Read the
|    section that starts 3 lines from now for more information.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {SQU} _
| Soil and Crop Quality
|
| The quality of mature crops varies according to the type of soil they are
| grown in, as well as some other key details. When tilling the soil, there is
| a visible difference in the types of soil: the best soil is darkest, while
| the lesser soils are progressively lighter. The best soil is so dark it
| almost looks like it's already been watered if not viewed next to a watered
| square; the worst soil is so light it looks more like sand. Remember, though,
| that all soil qualities look the same once they've been watered, so don't
| check for soil quality after watering.
|
| There are three soil levels: Good Soil, Decent Soil and Poor Soil. There are
| also four levels of crop quality: Decent, Good, Perfect and Shining. Notice
| that there are three types of soil, but four types of crop: a given soil
| quality will not reliably generate the same level crop.
|
| Higher-quality soil yields higher-quality crops, which in turn sell for
| more. However, even plants planted in the highest-quality soil will not
| reliably yield Shining-level crops. Poor soil will typically yield Decent
| and Good crops, while Regular soil will yield Good, Perfect, and rarely
| Shining. Good soil will yield Good, Perfect and Shining as well, but with
| Perfect and Shining occurring at higher rates.

| table of proportions. These are just estimates, but they're based on
| on thousands and thousands of trials, so they should be accurate within a
| percent or two. The profit studies below are based on these proportions.
|
| Soil:      Decent     Good  Perfect  Shining
|   Poor        70%      26%       4%       0%
| Decent         0%      80%      18%       2%
|   Good         0%      30%      64%       6%
|
| It's notable, however, that the level of a crop isn't determined until the
| day it finally blossoms for picking; therefore, if you wake up one day and
| find that you have a surprisingly low proportion of Shining crops, you can
| reset and start the day again and you may have more crops at the "Shining"
| level. This is also helpful for some of the goddess recipes, which require
| a crop of a specific level. Note, though, that for this to work, you must
| save and reset from the night before.

| Fertilizer
|
| Fertilizer serves a basic purpose: raising your soil quality. A single bag
| of fertilizer operates on six squares of soil in a row, similar to the way
| a bag of seeds is planted.
|
| There are three types of fertilizer: Fertilizer, Rapid Fertilizer and Happy
| Fertilizer. Each has subtle differences:
|
|  - Regular Fertilizer will raise the quality of each square it touches by one
|    level (Poor to Decent, Decent to Good). It will last one season (give or
|    take a few days). It costs 90G.
|
|  - Rapid Fertilizer will raise the quality of each square it touches to Good,
|    no matter what it starts out as. It will last two seasons (give or take a
|    few days). It costs 180G.
|
|  - Happy Fertilizer will raise the quality of each square it touches to Good,
|    no matter what it starts out as. It will last three seasons (give or take
|    a few days). It costs 225G.
|
| Given the prices of the three fertilizers, it is never better to buy Regular
| or Rapid. The only time buying Regular makes sense is when Souffle Farm has
| begun selling Regular, but not Rapid and Happy (which it sells starting at 3
| stars).
|
| None of the three fertilizers are available at Souffle Farm initially.
| Regular becomes available at 2 stars (5,000G of crops sold), while Rapid and
| Happy become available at 3 stars (10,000G of crops sold).
|
| Fertilizer can be purchased from other places in the meantime. The best place
| to find fertilizer is the Flower Festival, occurring the 10th of Spring. Here
| you can purchase Happy Fertilizer from some of the stalls. Unfortunately, you
| may not have much money by the first Flower Festival to buy much fertilizer,
| given its close proximity to the start of the game. 
|
| Fertilizer can also be purchased from the Harvest Festival (in Fall) and from
| Taylor (who arrives in the middle of your first Winter at the earliest), but
| by the time these both roll around, Souffle Farm will have likely leveled-up.
| If it hasn't, you're not really selling enough crops to even care, now are
| you?

| Crop Growth Times
|
| Every crop has three growth times, corresponding to the crop's growth time
| in the three different soil types: Good soil, Decent soil and Poor soil.
|
| The Good soil growth time is always the fastest, followed by the Decent soil
| time. There are, however, some crops that take the same amount of time to
| grow regardless of soil quality, like Potatoes. For these crops, they will
| take the same number of days to grow regardless of the type of soil they're
| planted in - the only impact soil quality will have is on crop quality.
|
| Crop growth times can be impacted by other factors as well: most importantly,
| the growth time of crops that have weeds sitting by them (either right
| alongside or diagonally alongside) will be slowed, and the quality may be
| impacted as well. To avoid this, pick weeds the first morning you see them.
|

| Growing Out-Of-Season
|
| Unlike every other Harvest Moon game... well, ever, pretty much, crops in
| Tree of Tranquility can grow out of season. Not every crop can grow in every
| season, however:
|
|  - In Spring, you can also plant and grow Summer crops.
|  - In Summer, you can also plant and grow Spring and Fall crops. You can also
|    leave multi-harvest crops from Spring growing into Summer.
|  - In Fall, you can also plant and grow Summer and Winter crops. You can also
|    leave multi-harvest crops from Summer growing into Fall.
|  - In Winter, you can also plant and grow Fall crops.  You can also leave
|    multi-harvest crops from Fall growing into Winter.
|
| Or, shown in convenient chart form:
|
|         Spr Sum Fal Wnt    In general, crops can be grown and harvested in
|  Spring  X   X             seasons "bordering" their primary season. The
|  Summer  X   X   X         exception to this is Winter, whose crops cannot
|    Fall      X   X   X     grow in Spring, and which cannot grow crops from
|  Winter          X   X     Spring.
|
| However, crops growing out of season suffer from greatly reduced growth
| times - it is never more profitable to grow out-of-season crops in Spring,
| Summer and Fall than it is to grow those season's best crops (Strawberries,
| Cocoa and Eggplants, respectively). It is, however, more profitable to grow
| Eggplants in Winter than the only Winter crop (Buckwheat).
|

| Weeds
|
| Weeds now actually have a practical purpose. When weeds are growing near your
| crops or trees, they may (and often will) actually harm the crop in two ways:
| the quality of the crop may be lowered, and the growth time will be notably
| increased.
|
| To prevent this from happening, pull any weed found within 2 squares (either
| side-to-side or diagonally) of a crop or tree. Be careful, though, as in
| Tree of Tranquility, pulling weeds actually consumes stamina. The sickle
| uses much less stamina than strictly pulling - but the sickle will also chop
| down your crops if you focus on the wrong square, so again, be careful.
|
| Weeds have an extra impact on trees: trees go through four growth stages,
| but will not progress from one stage to another if there are any weeds (or
| anything else) within the 3x3 square surrounding the tree. While the tree is
| growing, make sure to clear out these weeds - once the tree is grown, though,
| this is not as significant as the tree will bare fruit regardless.
|
| Each field does have a maximum weed capacity, so you may notice that if you
| let the weeds grow long enough without trimming them, new ones may stop
| spawning up. This can be useful: if you're maintaining a smaller field within
| your field and trim only the weeds bordering your crops, eventually weeds may
| fill in far enough from your crops to stop worrying about it.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Stamina
|
| Certain crops can be consumed raw. These crops carry different levels of
| stamina restoration, measured in points. Consuming the crop raw will grant
| that many points of stamina restoration.
|
| Cooked dishes almost always carry a higher stamina restoration value than
| raw crops, but raw crops can help in a pinch, or early in the game when
| cooking utensils haven't been obtained.
|
| Your character begins the game with 500 stamina points, and each power berry
| grants an increase of 100 points, for a maximum total of 1000 points.

| Crops vs. Herbs and Flowers
|
| There are three types of seeds that you can buy: crops, herbs and flowers.
| The vast majority of your seed purchases will be crops: these are the most
| profitable of the growable items, and are affected by soil quality.
|
| That last note is the key difference between crops and herbs/flowers; while
| crops are affected by soil quality, herbs and flowers do not have quality
| levels. Every herb grown will be of the same quality, as well as every
| flower - the only drawback to planting flowers and herbs in poor quality soil
| is in the growth time.
|
| Between herbs and flowers, the main difference is in consumption: mainly,
| herbs can be consumed, whereas flowers cannot. Both can be used for dyeing
| yarn, and both can be sold, though neither are nearly as profitable as
| crops.
|
| Note that if you want to keep flowers alive after they're fully grown (for
| honey, for example), you still need to water them each day. If you notice
| that your flowers are brown one day, pick them immediately - they'll
| disappear before the next day.
|
| Flowers can also be used to attract bees for honey; more information on this
| is available in the 'Field Items' section (search for { FIT } without the
| spaces).

|               every day (except when it's raining, of course), harvested
|               the first day it's available, and - for single-harvest crops -
|               re-planted the same day of the harvest. Additionally, this
|               count includes the harvest that can take place on the 1st of

|/Each season below will have three profit studies for it: a seasonal profit
| study, a per-bag profit study and an observations study. The three studies
| serve different purposes:
|
|  - The seasonal profit study is meant for your planning from the beginning of
|    the season. These values represent the maximum amount that can be earned
|    from that crop for the season. Use this to plan which crops you want to
|    plant the first day and maintain throughout the season.
|
|    The values in this column are assuming several things: that the crop is
|    planted on the first day of the season, that the crop is watered every
|    day (except when it's raining), that the crop is harvested the first day
|    it's available, that single-harvest crops are re-planted the same day
|    they're harvested, and that any weeds that spring up alongside the crops
|    are picked or cut the same day they appear.
|
|    Additionally, harvests are counted all the way up until the 1st day of the
|    following month - so for the values below to hold true, refrain from
|    chopping down old crops until the 1st day of the next season.
|
|    This list is sorted by profit per season per row in Good Soil. The number
|    listed alongside the profit is that crop's rank in that particular soil.
|
|  - The per-bag profit study is meant for your planning later in the season,
|    when the number of days you have to grow the crop is limited. Use this to
|    find the best crop to plant when your days are running low and you're
|    looking for a little extra cash.
|
|    Because this list is intended only for short-term profits, only the
|    profits from the first harvest of a multi-harvest crop are listed. If you
|    have the time for more than one harvest from a multi-harvest crop, check
|    its listing in its section above to see how much it would make for your
|    number of harvests.
|
|    This list is sorted by each crop's profit per day per bag in Good Soil,
|    the best measure of crop cost-efficiency. Pay attention to the crop's
|    growth time so you know if the crop will sprout in time for the end of
|    the season.
|
|  - The observations profit study is a way for those of you who still aren't
|    sure how to interpret the charts to get the conclusions.
|
| The values listed are, needless to say, approximate. Because crop quality is
| somewhat random, profits will differ - they should be near the below values,
| but won't be precise. For more information on this, check the Crop Quality
| section at the beginning of the Farming section (search for { SQU } without
| the spaces).
|
| Note that for profits computed for an entire bag or row, the profit listed
| for a soil quality is assuming the entire row is of that quality. If your
| row is of mixed qualities, average the profits.
|
| It might seem a bit non-intuitive that the per-day lists and the per-season
| lists differ so much; there are two chief reasons for this. The first is that
| multi-harvest crops become more and more profitable with subsequent harvests,
| while single-harvest crops have the same profitability throughout. Secondly,
| some crops' growth times leave a large "remainder" - that is, the part of the
| season after the final harvest when there isn't time for another harvest.
| Blue Mist flowers are very profitable per day, but because they can take 16
| days to grow (in Poor soil), a large portion of the season (12 days) can't be
| used for another harvest, decreasing its seasonal profitability.
|
| Huge thanks go out to mister_jmp for doing more of the research on this
| section than I did.

| Observations
|
| Over all of Spring, the most profitable crop - regardless of soil quality -
| is the Strawberry. The seeds are expensive and growth time is long, but if
| you're planting on the first day then no other crop even comes close to the
| Strawberry's profit.
|
| If you're planting in Poor soil, Potato is the next best option - the Potato
| growth time is not affected by soil quality, resulting in the same number of
| harvests regardless. It also grows very quickly.
|
| Turnips also grow very quickly, but are very un-profitable under any
| circumstances.
|
| In Spring, no flowers or herbs rival any crops for profitability. The one
| exception is Flax, which should really never be grown for its own profit -
| however, Flax is very profitable when used with the yarn maker and dye pot,
| so keep that in mind if you have those tools. It's also an ingredient in the
| rucksack upgrades.
|
| For end-of-the-season planting, Cabbage carries the highest profit per day,
| followed by Strawberries again if you have the time to grow it. This
| measurement is given in profit per bag per day, which means that planting one
| bag of Strawberries in Good soil is more profitable than planting Potatoes,
| even though twice as many harvests of Potatoes can be had in the same time as
| the first Strawberry harvest. Strawberries are still more profitable than
| Potatoes per day.
|
| If you're planting in Poor soil, however, Potato is your best option pretty
| much no matter what. Cabbage is better as long as you're in Decent or Good
| soil.
|
| Remember that the Per-Bag listing is assuming that only one harvest of
| multi-harvest crops can be had during the season. If more can be had, check
| the crop's listing in the sections above for an estimate of how much more
| money the crop can make if more than one harvest is possible.
|
| So, in short, if you're planting at the beginning of the season, plant
| Strawberries. If you're planting at the end of the season, plant Cabbage if
| it's before the 21st; otherwise, plant Potatoes.

| Observations
|
| Over all of summer, Cocoa is the best crop unless you're planting in Poor
| soil, in which case Tomatoes take precedence. Honeydew is a close second in
| Decent or Good soil.
|
| Blue Herbs are an interesting summer crop. In Poor soil, they're the fourth
| most profitable crop for the season and the most profitable per-day. However,
| blue herbs' primary profitability comes in dyes. Blue Yarns are the most
| valuable Yarn, selling for over 1000G for any blue item (2100G for blue
| Silk Yarn). So, blue herbs are worth growing, but it's best to save them for
| Yarn dying.
|
| Again, flowers are never more profitable than crops for an entire season
| under any circumstances.
|
| For end-of-the-season planting, Honeydew are your best bet if you have the
| time to harvest them, and if you're in Decent or Good soil. However, Honeydew
| take over a week to harvest, so if you're more pressed for time than that, it
| is better to go with Watermelons, which take two days less. If you're even
| more pressed for time, or if you're in Poor soil, go with Blue Herbs. They're
| more profitable per day than any other crop in Poor soil, and they're the
| most profitable 5-days-or-less crop in Decent or Good soil.
|
| So, in short, if you're planting at the beginning of the season, go with
| Cocoa - if you haven't created the first rainbow and can't get to Toucan
| Island for the seeds, go with Honeydew and remember to re-plant on harvest
| day. And if you're planting at the end of the season, plant Honeydew if you
| have a week or more, but otherwise Blue Herb is typically the best option.

| Observations
|
| For all of Fall, Eggplants are reliably the best crop. They're ranked first
| in Decent or Good soil, and come in at a virtual tie for first in Poor soil.
| Bell Peppers are their rival for profitability in Poor soil, but aren't
| initially available.
|
| Two crops: Pumpkins and Rice - are fairly profitable in Good soil, ranking
| 4th and 5th, but see their profitability plummet in poorer soil, down to only
| 10th and 11th in Poor soil.
|
| Interestingly, in Poor soil, some flowers are actually viable profit options.
| Roses and Morning Glory are the 3rd and 5th most profitable Poor soil crops
| over an entire season. The other flowers and herbs, however, are never even
| close to as profitable as the standard crops.
|
| The exception to this is, of course, Blue Mist flowers. Blue Mist flowers
| take ages to harvest, but are extremely profitable as far as flowers go. They
| have the highest sale price of any flowers, and are the 6th most profitable
| Fall crop even in Good soil.
|
| Blue Mist flowers are even more valuable per-day. In Poor and Decent soil,
| Blue Mist flowers are the most profitable Fall crop - however, because they
| take so long to harvest, it's not usually viable to plant them for profit for
| an entire season. They're your best option if you want to plant a Poor and
| Decent soil row about halfway through the season, though.
|
| Beyond Blue Mist flowers, the best options in Good Soil are Pumpkins and Rice
| - depending on which you have the time to grow. Pumpkins take 7 days to grow,
| while Rice takes only 5. In Poor and Decent soil, Blue Mist flowers are the
| most profitable if you have time to grow them (more than two weeks), but
| otherwise it's back to Pumpkins if you have a week, or Spicy Peppers if you
| have only 5 days.
|
| So in short, plant Eggplants at the beginning of the season. Then, if you
| want to play something new later in the season, go with Blue Mist flowers if
| you have over two weeks, Pumpkins if you have a week, and Rice or Spicy
| Peppers if you have less than a week.

| Observations
|
| Winter's not a good month for planting for profit. The most profitable
| Winter crop ranks 19th overall.
|
| If you're looking to make some money anyway, Buckwheat's the way to go unless
| you're in Poor soil - then go with Snowflake flowers. That goes for both
| planting seasonally and late-season planting.
|
| If you're going to plant Buckwheat for profit, though, there's something you
| can do to increase your profit substantially. Buckwheat sells for 160G max
| (Shining), and typically sells for 80G (50G, 80G and 110G for Decent, Good
| and Perfect). Buckwheat Noodles are made using just Buckwheat and a pot, and
| they sell for 300G. So if you're in need of winter crop profit, grow
| Buckwheat and convert it to Buckwheat Noodles.

| Observations
|
| Seasonally, Summer is the most profitable season for farming. Four of the six
| most profitable crops overall grow in Summer: Cocoa, Honeydew, Corn and
| Tomato. Winter is obviously the least profitable, given how few things there
| are to grow; but after Winter, Spring is the second least profitable, with
| only one crop in the top 10.
|
| However, since harvesting for profit doesn't necessitate having any kind of
| variety in your crops, Spring can be very profitable if you plant nothing but
| strawberries. Strawberries are the second-most profitable crop in the game,
| after only Cocoa.
|
| Flowers and Herbs are almost always less profitable than crops. The only
| notable exceptions in Good soil are Blue Mist flowers and Blue Herbs. In
| Poor and Decent soil, however, flowers and herbs can be more profitable.

|/Trees operate differently from crops. Rather than being planted and
| harvested when they bloom, then cut down at the end of the season, trees are
| permanent. They exist through all seasons, but only produce fruit in their
| particular season.
|
| Trees can be planted in any season and take two seasons to mature. Once
| mature, they will only produce fruit in-season. Trees do not need to be
| watered, and any tree can be cut down for lumber. Each tree must lie in the
| center of an empty 3x3 square for it to grow. Trees planted too close to
| other trees, crops, or the edge of the plot will never mature. If you're not
| sure if a particular spot will work, till a 3x3 square and plant the tree in
| the middle.
|
| Trees, once planted, will go through four growth stages, each lasting around
| two weeks. The tree will remain a sapling for a couple weeks, then grow into
| a small tree, then a medium tree, then finally a large tree. Trees will not,
| however, mature if there is anything (weeds, other saplings, non-soil
| squares) in the 3x3 area surrounding them, so make sure to chop weeds fairly
| frequently. Trees will begin to produce fruit starting at stage 2 (small
| tree), but will produce more and better fruit as they grow. 
|
| When the tree's fruit is in season, fruit can be found around the base of the
| tree throughout the season. Fruit can fall on top of weeds, but it cannot
| fall on top of other saplings or other fruits - so chop any Hali sprouts that
| pop up and make sure to collect the fruit at least once or twice a week.
|
| Fruit harvested from trees has only two qualities: Regular and Shining. Fruit
| quality does not appear to be heavily influenced by soil quality, as even
| trees planted in low-quality soil produce Shining fruit with some regularity.
|
| All seedlings are purchased from either Souffle Farm or Taylor's Seeds, and
| are available in any season.
|
| Trees can actually be extremely profitable long-term. A typical tree will
| produce around 15 fruits per season, sometimes amounting to over 3,000G. An
| orchard of 15 trees (approximately the most that will fit on the three
| starting plots) can produce as much as 45,000G per season. That's even more
| than a barn full of cows can produce for a season, for much less work.
|
| The best tree for profit is the Cherry (Mora) tree, selling its fruit for
| 210G and 420G. The others are fairly even besides Chestnuts, which are not
| very profitable.
|
| Similar to the above crop sections, Regular and Shining prices and stamina
| values are separated by a slash (so 150G/300G means a Regular apple sells for
| 150G, and a Shining one sells for 300G).

| Power Berry
|
| There are several Power Berries in the game, each of which increases your
| total stamina by 100 points. One of these Power Berries is obtained by using
| your hoe to till 1,000 total squares. There's probably not any chance that
| you'll need to till 1,000 squares in your game (that'd be tilling every
| square of all four fields, twice), but fortunately, re-tilling already-tilled
| squares counts for the total. To get this Power Berry, expend your excess
| stamina buy repetitively tilling the same squares over and over at the end of
| the day. Charging up your hoe will make this process go much faster.
|
| For information on the other Power Berries, search for { POW } without the
| spaces.

| up or change floors).

| Honey
|
| Obtaining honey requires you to plant flowers on your farm. Any type of
| flower will work, though different colors of flower lead to different types
| of honey. 
|
| Once the flowers bloom, each flower has a small chance each day of yielding
| honey instead of the flower. A flower that will yield honey will appear with
| a little bee flying around it. When you go to pick the flower, you'll receive
| honey instead of the flower. The flower will disappear too, though, so if you
| want the flower itself, don't pick it - water it instead and check again the
| next day.
|
| So, to obtain honey, plant some flowers and wait for them to sprout. Once
| they've sprouted, do not pick them: instead, check every sunny morning to see
| if there is a bee hovering around any of the flowers. If there is, pick those
| flowers to obtain some honey (instead of the flower). If there is no bee,
| water the flower anyway to keep it alive and check again another day.
|
| Be careful when trying to pick honey; for some reason, the game tends to
| assume you're picking other flowers alongside the honey-flower.

| Dyed Yarn
|
| While the primary item needed for dyed yarn is the actual yarn, various items
| grown on your farm can be used to dye those particular yarn balls.
|
| Three items can be placed in the yarn maker to make balls of Yarn: Wool
| (which makes balls of Wool Yarn), Silk (which makes balls of Silk Yarn) and
| Flax (which makes balls of Flax Yarn). All three of these items can then be
| dyed using the dyeing pot.
|
| In general, blue yarns are the highest-priced yarns, followed by red, then
| purple, then green, then yellow.

|/So you want to raise animals, huh? Well just go right on out and buy some!
| ...hardly. In order to raise animals on your farm, there are a few things you
| need to do first.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {ACC} _
| Access Brownie Ranch
|
| Brownie Ranch isn't accessible at the very beginning of the game: there's
| a large boulder blocking the path.
|
| The boulder in question is near the western side of the hills area, by
| Souffle Farm. It's smashable by a hammer, but only if the hammer's level 3.
|
| Check the tools section (search for [ TOL ] without the spaces) for extensive
| information on upgrading tools, but what you need to know here is that the
| hammer can be upgraded to level 3 strictly through using it: unlike other
| Harvest Moon games, upgrading it to be more powerful happens automatically.
| Upgrading it to use less stamina costs money, but stamina doesn't matter to
| this one-time task.
|
| But, using the hammer enough to level it to level 3 takes a ridiculous
| amount of time and stamina: you'll have to try really hard to get it leveled
| up before the end of first spring. In order to level it, you must use it on
| actual rocks - several mine trips, though, will give you all the rocks you
| need. But even with a mine trip every few days, you'll still be hard pressed
| to get that hammer to Level 3 quickly.
|
| Fortunately, though, the boulder automatically disappears the night before
| the first Animal Festival on Spring 28. Chances are you won't level your
| hammer to level 3 naturally by this time, so the best course of action is
| typically to just wait until the Animal Festival. The only real reason to
| smash the boulder early is if Kathy or Renee are your choice for marriage,
| and you want to get their heart levels up in order to ask them to the first
| Fireworks Display. In this case, you might want to expend your extra stamina
| each day in the mine by using your hammer to level it up as quickly as
| possible.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {BUI} _
| Build a Coop/Barn
|
| Your animals can't just live outside all the time; they need a building to
| live in, and unfortunately your farm doesn't come equipped with one.
|
| The Carpenter's Shop is where you'll need to go to arrange for these
| these buildings to be built. They're pricey, but they're worth it once you
| have the money.
|
| The buildings don't just require money to be built, though. You'll also need
| lumber and stones. Collect these simply by chopping trees and smashing stones
| you find around your farm and in Praline Forest. When you cut down a tree or
| destroy a stone, several smaller logs or stones will take its place. Pick
| these up manually and the lumber or stone will automatically be added to your
| inventory.
|
| When you have sufficient materials, talk to the folks at the Carpenter's Shop
| and elect to have your barn or coop built. The coop requires 2400G, 10 lumber
| and 10 stones, while the barn requires 3000G, 12 lumber and 12 stones.
|
| Barns and coops can only be built on your main property, and you can only
| have one of each. The coop can initially hold 8 chickens and 6 silkworms,
| while the barn can initially hold 6 animals of any type.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Upgrade Your Coop/Barn
|
| While you can't buy a second coop or barn, you can upgrade them at the same
| Carpenter's Shop. Upgrading the coop costs 4800G and requires 22 lumber and
| 22 stones, while upgrading the barn costs 6000G and requires 22 lumber and
| 22 stones. The upgrades only slightly increase the capacity of your coop and
| barn: the coop can hold 12 chickens and 8 silkworms (up from 8 and 6), while
| the barn can hold 8 animals of any type (up from 6).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {PUR} _
| Purchasing
|
| After you have a barn or coop, it's time to actually purchase your animal.
| All animals are purchased from Brownie Ranch; however, initially only a few
| are available.
|
| At the start of the game, four animals are available: Chickens, Cows, Sheep
| and Silkworms. To gain access to more animals, you need to sell animal
| products. After selling 5,000G total worth of animal products, you can buy
| Horses and Goats. After selling 10,000G total worth of animal products, you
| can buy Ducks and Ostriches.
|
| Once you purchase an animal, it will appear in your coop or barn immediately.
| Chickens, ducks and silkworms come fully-grown and will begin producing
| products within a few days. Cows, sheep, horses, ostriches and goats start
| out young and must grow up before they begin to produce products. For
| information on how long it takes each animal to grow up, refer to the quick
| reference section below (search for [ LQR ] without the spaces).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FEE} _
| Feeding
|
| Animals, like people, have to eat. Granted your character apparently doesn't
| have to eat, but you get the picture. Every field you can start with has a
| pre-planted field of grass that will automatically start growing when you
| purchase your barn or coop. Yes, the grass is psychic.
|
| Every animal, no matter the stage of growth, needs to eat every day. The
| penalty for missing a day is that the animal will take one day longer to
| produce its next product. For animals like cows, goats and chickens which
| produce something every day, they will basically skip a day. For animals
| like ducks, silkworms, ostriches and sheep which produce products at a longer
| interval, it will take one day longer than it would have otherwise.
|
| If you go a few days in a row without feeding a given animal, it will die.
| Cain will come to your house and yell at you for this. For more information
| on animal death, see the { DEA } section below.
|
| The border around an animal's name will change from red to blue when the
| animal has been fed for the day. Use this to keep track of which ones have
| been fed so far. Animals must have eaten by 8:00PM or they will not eat for
| the day.
|
| There are two ways to feed your animals: feeding them with feed and fodder,
| and letting them graze.
| _ _ _ _
| Grazing
|
| Generally speaking, letting them graze is the simpler option. Every animal
| (except silkworms) can be let outside to get their nom on in the field
| outside your house. Once let outside, each will eat one patch of grass per
| day. Animals can be let outside to graze in every season, even Winter.
|
| The grass grows fast enough for every animal to graze every day, so don't
| worry about running out if you think you have too many animals.
|
| To let your animals out to graze, just ring the bell outside the barn. This
| will let every animal out into the lawn. They'll be automatically returned
| at 6:00AM the next morning, or you can ring the bell again to put them back
| inside yourself. There is no penalty for leaving them out all night, though,
| even if it's raining the next day.
|
| In some rare instances, if your barn and coop are both full, ringing the
| bell will not let every animal out - one or two may remain inside. There will
| also be rare days when an animal, despite being outside all day, simply does
| not eat. These are not a huge issues given their rarity (each happens around
| once every couple weeks, to only one animal at a time), but if you want to
| make extra-certain that every animal eats every day, check after ringing the
| bell to make sure everyone got out, and check later in the day to make sure
| everyone was fed. Hand-feed any animal that didn't eat for the day, or let
| them all in and out again.
|
| In some cases, however, letting the animals graze is not the best option.
| They should not be let outside if it's raining or snowing, so in these cases
| it's better to feed them inside. Silkworms cannot graze outside, and thus
| must be fed manually. Additionally, hand-feeding them carries a more
| substantial affection boost, so if you want to get your animal's hearts up
| faster, you need to know about feed, fodder and manual feeding.
| _ _ _ _
| Feeding
|
| Your other option for feeding your animals is to obtain feed and fodder to
| give to your animals directly. You'll need to do this at least part of the
| time, given that animals should be be let outside when it is raining or
| snowing. Additionally, feeding them manually can raise their heart level
| faster. Silkworms cannot be let outside, and thus must be fed manually with
| feed.
|
| Fodder can be obtained in two ways: it can be purchased from Brownie Ranch
| for 15G each, or you can cut your own grass with the sickle. Purchasing is
| typically the better option so that there is plenty of grass for the animals
| to graze. Feed can also be bought for 15G each from Brownie Ranch, and cannot
| be obtained any other way.
|
| You'll need to keep at least some feed and fodder on hand in case of rainy
| or snowy days. You don't want to get stuck on a rainy day with no feed or
| fodder, especially if it's Monday when Brownie Ranch is closed.
|
| To feed your animals with feed and fodder, pull the food out of the spout at
| the back of the barn and coop by standing against it and pressing A. For
| efficiency, pull out as many feeds or fodders as you need before giving it
| to your animals.
|
| Once you have the animal food, you have two options: give it to each animal
| directly, or place it in their feed bins. There is no good reason to place it
| in their bins, though; giving it to them directly raises their heart level
| more and takes no extra time. For the coop, there aren't even enough feed
| bins to feed every bird in a full coop, so you have no choice but to feed
| them manually. Note that each barn animal and each silkworm has its own
| feeding trough, but the coop has only "community" feeding areas to be shared
| by all the chickens and ducks.
|
| Both hand-feeding and letting animals graze carry a heart level boost; but
| the grazing boost comes from letting the animal out in general, so you can
| pick up both boosts in one day by hand-feeding the animal first, then letting
| her outside.
|
| The bins do serve a purpose: if you put feed in a bin, the animals will use
| it as a 'back-up' meal, and eat it on a day when you did not feed them
| otherwise. This can be useful as a fallback in case you are worried about
| forgetting to feed them or running out of time in a given day.

| Weather
|
| Remember, animals must be kept inside on rainy days; otherwise, they run the
| risk of getting sick.
|
| Horses and ostriches can be ridden in bad weather, but only if you ride them
| out of the barn and into the barn. If you simply push them out or whistle
| them out, they'll suffer the ill effects of the weather. Once you've ridden
| them out, you can mount and dismount them as long as you ride them back into
| the barn at the end of the day.
|

| Moving Animals
|
| Animals can be called and moved in four different ways, which differ by the
| animal.
|
| _ _ _ _ _
| Saddling
|
| Horses and ostriches can be ridden from place to place. To ride, simply stand
| alongside the animal with your saddle and use the saddle to hop on. Horses
| and ostriches can be ridden into and out of the barn, and around town. If
| you dismount, the animal will stay in roughly the same area for a decent
| period of time. Remember to ride the horse or ostrich into and out of the
| barn during bad weather: there's no affection decrease if you're riding it
| instead of pushing it in and out or whistling for it.
| _ _ _ _ _
| Whistling
|
| Horses and ostriches, when outside, can also be whistled for. Press A and
| B at once to whistle for an animal to ride and the nearest ridable animal
| will head your way. Note that for this, you must have the saddle in your
| rucksack.
| _ _ _ _ _
| Hand Bell
|
| All livestock can be called towards you using the bell. When you ring the
| bell, every livestock animal within earshot (on screen and within a few steps
| off-screen) will walk towards your character. This isn't actually that
| useful, since to take care of the animals you need them to be somewhat
| separated. The only purpose it served in past Harvest Moon games was to make
| it easier to move the animals in and out, but in Tree of Tranquility...
| _ _ _ _ _
| Barn Bell
|
| There is a bell alongside your barn that can be rung to automatically
| transport all your animals indoors and outdoors (whichever they weren't
| before you rang it). If some are in and some out, all will come out. This
| is the easiest way to move your animals in and out. If you want your animals
| to graze in the yard, simply let them out in the morning using the bell, then
| put them back in at night using it. That will give them ample time to graze
| and eat their fill, and will raise their affection levels too. This bell
| will summon both barn animals and coop animals.
|
| Note, however, that if your barn and coop are full, there will be rare
| occasions (once or twice a month) where an animal or two is not let out into
| the field. These animals will see a one-day delay before they give their next
| product, but overall if your barn and coop are full, this won't be a major
| problem.
|
| If you don't put the animals back in the barn by 6:00AM, they'll somehow be
| automatically transported there for the next morning: so there is no way to
| leave animals out for the next morning. You don't even need to worry about
| leaving them out the night before a rainy day.
|

| Animal Appearances
|
| Most animals can have multiple appearances: for example, cows can come in
| black, brown or black & white. Unlike A Wonderful Life, however, the color
| of a cow has no significance to the quality or sale price of that cow's milk.
| Color differences are purely cosmetic.
|
| An animal's color is determined when it is purchased or born. For birthed
| animals, the color isn't related to the color of its parent at all: a black
| cow has an equal chance of giving birth to a black cow, a brown cow or a
| black & white cow.
|
| If you have your heart set on a certain color for your animal, you can save
| and reset your game either the day you buy the animal or the day the animal
| is born. The color is determined at purchase or birth, so reloading your game
| will re-generate the animal's color, giving you a chance of a different color
| animal.
|

| Affection Points
|
| For most aspects so far, poultry (chicken, ducks and silkworms) and livestock
| (cows, goats, sheep, horses, ostriches) have been identical. However, when it
| comes to raising your animal's affection points, there is a strong difference
| between poultry and livestock.
| _ _ _ _
| Poultry
|
| Like the villagers, poultry operate on a 10-heart system for affection - each
| heart corresponds to 100 heart points. So, raising a poultry animal's
| affection by 100 heart points corresponds to an increase in 1 heart on their
| heart level. You can check your poultry's heart level by opening up the menu
| screens, scrolling to the Heart icon and scrolling down to Animals.
|
| There are three ways to increase a poultry animal's heart points:
|
| Action           Heart Points
|    Hand-Feeding        1
|      Picking Up        5
| Letting Outside        3
|
| As you can see from those values, raising a poultry animal's heart level is a
| long, slow process. Fortunately, you can both hand-feed and let the poultry
| outside the same day (they receive the points for both, even if they've
| already eaten when they go outside), but you may find this overkill for only
| 1 extra point per day. It will take only about 14 extra days to raise a
| poultry animal's heart level to 10 hearts from 0 if you do not hand-feed
| them every day.
|
| Using these numbers, the fastest that the animals' heart level can be raised
| by one heart is:
|
| Animal and Care                               Days to +1 Heart
| Chickens/Ducks
|  Hand-Feeding, Picking Up and Letting Outside        11
|  Hand-Feeding and Picking Up                         16
|  Hand-Feeding and Letting Outside                    25
|  Picking Up and Letting Outside                      12
|  Only Picking Up                                     20
|  Only Letting Outside                                33
|  Only Hand-Feeding                                  100
| Silkworms
|  Hand-Feeding and Picking Up                         16
|  Only Hand-Feeding                                  100
|  Only Picking Up                                     20
|
| Obviously, 'Only Picking Up' is not recommended given that your animals need
| to, you know, eat. Note also that these numbers are approximate, given that
| rain will necessitate that you not let the chickens and ducks outside on
| certain days.
|
| This also makes it clearer why it takes ages and ages to raise a silkworm's
| heart level. Fortunately, the dye pot and yarn maker make silkworm's
| affection relatively irrelevant - the only time a silkworm's heart level
| becomes relevant is when you are trying to obtain that elusive Shining Silk
| Yarn for the 30-slot rucksack upgrade.
|
| Unfortunately, it's a lot easier to lower a poultry animal's heart level than
| raise it. Two actions lower their heart level: letting them outside in the
| rain (-10 points) and using a tool on them (-50 points or more). Fortunately
| though, forgetting to feed them does not appear to lower their affection:
| instead, they just don't give products for a couple days after a missed
| feeding. Of course, forgetting to feed them for days on end will kill them,
| which could be considered the "ultimate" affection lowerer.
| _ _ _ _ _
| Livestock
|
| Like villagers and poultry, livestock operate on a 10-heart system. Each
| heart corresponds to 100 heart points - so, raising an animal's heart points
| by 100 corresponds to an increase in 1 in their heart level.
|
| There are several ways to increase livestocks' heart points:
|
| Action            Heart Points
|     Hand-Feeding        1
|  Letting Outside        3
|          Talking        5
|         Brushing       10
| Milking/Shearing        3 (shearing can only be done every 4 days)
|
| As those numbers show, raising the affection of livestock is a lot faster
| than raising the affection of chickens, ducks and silkworms. And like
| poultry, you can receive heart points both for hand-feeding and for letting
| your livestock outside. Again, given that hand-feeding is only worth one
| point, this may not be worth it to you.
|
| Using those numbers, we find the following fastest times for raising animals'
| heart levels. Note that cows and goats operate under the same conditions.
|
| Animal and Care                                          Days to +1 Heart

| Animal Products
|
| Every animal serves a purpose - and for every animal except the Horse, that
| purpose is to produce some product for profit.
|
| Products are obtained in two different ways: some are "collected", while
| others are "obtained". Those are pretty vague words, so let me explain.
|
| Products that are "collected" appear on the floor of either the barn or the
| coop each morning. They sit there until you pick them up, even for days at a
| time. These items are Eggs (from Chickens, Ducks and Ostriches) and Cocoons
| (from Silkworms).
|
| Products that are "obtained" require you to actually go to the animal and do
| something to obtain them. Because these items require you to actually grab
| them from the animal, not obtaining them for a day will decrease the amount
| of the product you'll obtain in the long run. The two products that are
| obtained this way are Milk (from Cows and Goats) and Wool (from Sheep). To
| obtain Milk, you use the Milker (obtained from Brownie Ranch) on the Cows
| and Goats. To obtain Wool, you use the shears (also obtained from Brownie
| Ranch) on a Sheep.
|
| In addition to differing in how the products are obtained, different products
| appear at different intervals. Milk (both Cow and Goat) and Chicken Eggs
| are available on a daily basis. Duck Eggs appear every other day, and Ostrich
| Eggs, Silkworm Cocoons and Sheep Wool are available every fourth day.
|
| For Milk, if you skip Milking for a day, you will not be able to obtain an
| extra Milk another day to make up for the one you missed. For Wool, it will
| always take four days after you shear your sheep for the Wool to grow back.
| Therefore, if you wait a day before shearing your sheep after its Wool has
| grown, your next wool will be a day later than it could have been.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {ABY} _
| Animal By-Products
|
| In addition to selling these animal products, every product can also be
| turned into other items which sell for even more. To do this, you'll need
| items called Makers.
|
| There are four Makers: the Butter Maker, the Cheese Maker, the Mayonnaise
| Maker, and the Yarn Maker. All four are purchased from the General Store.
| The Mayonnaise Maker resides in the coop while the Butter, Cheese and Yarn
| Makers reside in the barn (even though silkworms' products utilize the Yarn
| Maker). The Yarn Maker also comes with the Dye Pot, which also sits in the
| barn (in the front right corner).
|
| Milk goes into the Butter Maker and Cheese Maker to make those products.
| For profit, Cheese is more profitable than Butter. Both Cow and Goat Milk can
| be used, and result in different items with different sale prices.
|
| Eggs go in the Mayonnaise Maker to make Mayonnaise. All three types of Eggs
| (Chicken, Duck, Ostrich) can be used; however, only Chicken Eggs will retain
| their quality rating (discussed in the next section). Ostrich and Duck eggs
| will yield 'Ostonnaise' and 'Duckonnaise', which can be used in every recipe
| that calls for Mayonnaise.
|
| Wool, Cocoons (Silk) and Flax (a crop) can all be placed in the Yarn Maker to
| make Wool Yarn, Silk Yarn and Flax Yarn. These yarns can, in turn, be placed
| in the Dye Pot with different herbs and flowers to dye them different colors.
| Dyed yarns are the most profitable items in the game, with blue yarns being
| the best option.
|
| Placing products into these Makers nearly always increases their sale value,
| with only three exceptions: Good or better Duck Eggs, Good or better Ostrich
| Eggs, and Shining Wool should not be put into Makers for profit.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {PRQ} _
| Product Qualities
|
| Like crops, animal products have quality ratings: Decent, Good, Perfect and
| Shining. Higher-quality products sell for more, restore more stamina (if
| eaten raw), and make better gifts. In fact, Perfect and Shining animal
| products - Milk, Butter and Cheese especially - are the most well-liked gifts
| in the game.
|
| The quality of a given good will depend on the heart level of the animal it
| is obtained from; more hearts will lead to better quality. Even a max-heart
| animal, though, will not produce Shining products on a regular basis - even
| then they only appear around 5% of the time.
|
| With two exceptions (Ostrich and Duck Eggs), items retain their quality
| rating when they are placed into a Maker. Perfect Milk will yield Perfect
| Cheese, Perfect Wool will yield Perfect Wool Yarn, and so on. And again,
| higher-quality by-products sell more than lower-quality, restore more
| stamina, and make better gifts. Dyed yarns, however, do not have a quality
| rating.
|
| Certain events in the game will require items of a certain quality or better.
| For example, the final rucksack upgrade (30-slot) requires a Shining version
| of each type of Yarn.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {BEE} _
| Breeding
|
| Every animal you can buy - with the exception of silkworms - can be bred to
| obtain a new one. This is done two different ways:
|
| Chickens, Ducks and Ostriches breed by taking their eggs and putting them in
| the incubator (the one in the coop for Chickens and Ducks, the one in the
| barn for Ostriches). After a few days (for the specific number, refer to the
| At-A-Glance section below), a new chick will be born. After a few more days,
| it will mature and start producing product of its own. In order to place an
| egg in an incubator, you must have an empty space in your barn or coop.
|
| Cows, Goats, Horses and Sheep breed by giving them a Miracle Potion. A
| Miracle Potion will induce pregnancy in the animal, and after a few weeks, it
| will give birth to a new baby. During this time, the animal can still be
| milked or sheared as normal, but it will spend its time in a special corner
| of the barn with its own feeding trough. After its child is born, it will
| take a few weeks for the new animal to grow up and begin to produce products
| of its own.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {SEL} _
| Selling
|
| You can sell one of your animals at Brownie Ranch by talking to Hanna over
| the counter.
|
| The price of the animal is based solely on its heart level; the price is
| evaluated based on a very simple formula:
|
| For coop animals (the chickens, ducks and silkworms), the sale price is
| 200G + (500G x heart_level).
|
| For barn animals (the cows, goats, horses, sheep and ostriches), the sale
| price is 500G + (500G x heart_level).
|
| In both cases, the heart level is evaluated based on the animal's hidden
| heart points - so, if your cow actually has 4.5 hearts, the sale price would
| be 2750G, even though only 4 hearts are displayed.
|
| This formula can also be used to calculate exactly how many heart points an
| animal has, in case you're curious.
|
| Some people have asked if it's profitable to breed animals for the sole
| purpose of selling them - the answer is no. You have to leave at least one
| spot open in your barn or coop for the duration of the pregnancy for animals,
| and in the time it takes any animal to be born, the full-grown animal that
| could have taken that spot will make more money with its products.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {TRN} _
| Transportation
|
| Horses and ostriches can also be used for transportation. To ride them,
| simply face them while holding your saddle and use it. Alternatively, if you
| have your saddle, you can whistle for them and ride them automatically. To
| whistle, press A and B simultaneously. Whichever animal has a higher heart
| level will come.
|
| Horses and ostriches are much faster at transporting you around than simply
| running. With the size of the island, this is actually a significant
| difference. When you dismount an animal while riding, it will stay in the
| same place, allowing you to ride it on errands.
|
| The speed of a particular horse or ostrich is based on your heart level with
| the animal. Horses and ostriches travel equally fast at the same heart
| levels - there is no speed difference between horses and ostriches. A horse
| or ostrich with no hearts travels 25% faster than walking, while a horse or
| ostrich with 10 hearts travels 75% faster than walking. That means that a
| horse or ostrich with 10 hearts travels 40% faster than a horse or ostrich
| with 0 hearts, meaning that each heart level carries a 4% increase in speed
| over walking.
|
| Ostriches and horses can be ridden in rainy weather as well, with no threat
| to their affection level. The key here is that you must ride the horse or
| ostrich out of the barn (instead of just pushing them out, or calling them
| out using the bell or whistle), and you must remember to ride them back
| inside.
|
| Also, take note that if a horse or ostrich is ridden outside (rather than
| pushed or moved outside with the bell), it will not graze while there. In
| order to feed it, you'll have to either feed it by hand, or ride it back
| inside the barn and let it back out. On sunny or cloudy days, it's best to
| move the horse or ostrich outside with the bell and wait for it to eat before
| riding it off.
|
| And, in case you're wondering, horses can be ridden while pregnant.

| Illness
|
| Animals may get sick if you forget to feed them or leave them out in the
| rain. If an animal gets sick, it will stop producing products for a few days
| (except sheep) or stop letting you ride it for a few days (for ostriches and
| horses). If it remains sick for too long, it may even die.
|
| The first time an animal gets sick on your farm, Cain will come and tell you
| what to do. After that, you're on your own.
|
| If your animal does get sick somehow, use an Animal Medicine on it. It's best
| to keep one of these on hand in case an animal gets sick on a day when
| Brownie Ranch is closed. Animal affection will decrease with every day the
| animal remains sick.
|
| Illness is easy to avoid, however; while animals can get sick randomly, it is
| very rare for an animal to get sick without being let out in rainy or snowy
| weather first.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {DEA} _
| Death
|
| Animals can die, both of old age and of illness. To prevent animals from
| dying of illness, make sure to have some Animal Medicine on hand in case they
| get sick. However, there's really nothing you can do to stop an animal from
| dying of old age.
|
| When they die, Cain will come to your ranch and either yell at you for not
| caring about the animal enough (if they died of illness) or express his
| condolences (if they died of old age). Then the animal will be buried at the
| church graveyard.
|
| Fortunately, two animals cannot die on the same day; so even if you go many
| days in a row without feeding any of your animals, you can only lose one per
| day.

|                     Blue would make 580G more than undyed, but a 'Shining'
|                     yarn ball died Blue would make only 210G more. By that
|                     same idea, a 'Shining' yarn ball will never be worth as
|                     much dyed as it is undyed unless it's dyed blue (the
|                     price of an undyed ball of 'Shining' yarn is 620G,
|                     whereas every dyed ball of yarn besides Blue is worth
|                     620G or less).

| Animal Profit Analysis                                                      |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/In case it wasn't perfectly obvious, this is a pretty advanced section.
| Unless you'd consider yourself an "advanced" player, this section will be
| a combination of completely uninteresting and way over your head. If you're
| an advanced player, though, read on.
|
| Conducting a comprehensive profit analysis for this game is quite difficult.
| There are many questions about what should be included: for example, for
| dyed yarns, should you include the money you're missing by not selling the
| flower? Should you include the money you spend on the seeds to grow the
| flowers? For cheese, butter, yarn and mayonnaise, should you include the cost
| of the 00 Maker? What about affection levels and product qualities?
|
| So, the way we're going to do this is to calculate what the most profitable
| products are as if you have unlimited resources - unlimited flowers and herbs
| for dyes, and all four makers. Then, we'll list the animals and their
| products in order based on how profitable they are. This list can then
| function as a sort of priority queue for you in choosing an animal or
| product. For example, if we were considering only cows and goats, the order
| would be:
|
| Goats	(Cheese)
| Cows (Cheese)
| Cows (Butter)
| Goats (Butter)
| Cows (Milk)
| Goats (Milk)
|
| Use this type of queue to find the most profitable animal and product based
| on your current equipment. For example, if you have the Cheese Maker, the
| goat is the best option. If you don't have the Cheese Maker, a cow is a
| better option, regardless of whether you have a Butter Maker or not.
|
| The cost of food is not included in this analysis because it is the same over
| every animal: every animal costs 15G to feed on a rainy day, and is free
| to feed on a sunny day. If you specifically start to feed your animals in
| different ways, your rankings will differ.
|
| We'll rank the animals in three different categories that should encompass
| the three most common questions: the profitability of a new animal over the
| course of a year, the profitability of a possessed animal over the course of
| a month, and the profitability of a new animal over the course of its
| lifetime.
|
| Please note that due to the large degree of variability in multiple aspects
| of each animal's parameters, these are just approximations. Additionally,
| given that even at particular heart levels an animal's product quality will
| will vary, it is impossible to determine accurately exactly how much profit
| a given animal will create. These lists should be used primarily for ranking
| animals against each other, not planning for an absolute profit value.
|
| Additionally, the profits are operating as if you sell the animal's product
| in that form for every single product that animal produces: for example, the
| Blue Silk Yarn value is suggesting that you make a ball of blue silk yarn out
| of every hunk of silk a silkworm produces. Needless to say, you probably
| won't actually be able to do that. This list, though, can also serve as a
| queue for what the best product to make is given your ingredient; just go
| down the list until you find the best product you're able to make. This isn't
| the function of the list, but within each animal, the products will always
| fall in the same order, regardless of what time period their profits are
| being analyzed for.
|
| The math behind these lists is all entered into a giant OpenOffice
| spreadsheet on my computer. If you'd like to see the spreadsheet or use it
| for your own FAQ, let me know - you're more than welcome to it. Additionally,
| if you think you see an error, let me know and I'll send you my reasoning
| and we can figure it out.
|
| Key: Certain abbreviations and conventions are used below to make it easier
| for the information to fit in chart format. Note the following abbreviations:
|   Silk Y : Silk Yarn
|       M. : Maker
|      F/H : Flower or Herb (used in dyes; here, always interchangeable)
|   Bought : Profit is assuming the animal was purchased from Brownie Ranch.
|     Bred : Profit is assuming the animal was bred on your farm.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {PA1} _
| Profitability of a New Animal for a Year
|
| For bred animals, these parameters assume you either placed the egg in the
| incubator or used the Miracle Potion on the first day of the year. Remember
| that your animal certainly will not produce the same quality good all year
| round, even if its heart level stays consistent. All the prices listed below
| are assuming Decent-quality goods are the only ones produced. Your animals
| will certainly produce higher-quality goods, but the belief is that that
| should happen fairly consistently across all animals, allowing us to use
| Decent-quality goods as a benchmark for rankings.
|
| If you have any evidence that animals' affection levels develop at different
| enough rates to seriously threaten these rankings, let me know.

|
| The negative profit next to Ostrich Mayo and Ostrich Eggs correspond to the
| fact that a bought ostrich will not pay for itself in under a year.
|
| Obviously, over a one-year period the silkworm is by far the most profitable
| animal to have, if you have a yarn maker (and thus, a dye pot) and a suitable
| supply of flowers or herbs. And considering silkworms only produce silk every
| 4 days, you should have plenty of herbs and flowers at your disposal. Blue
| are obviously the best, but any color will do.
|
| Note, however, that part of the reason dyed Silk Yarn ranks so high in this
| list is because we're assuming that all the products are of Decent quality.
| Dyed Silk Yarn has no quality rating, so it inherently has an advantage in
| this list. However, considering this list is intended for one-year
| profitability only, chances are other animal products will not rise
| substantially above this level: by the end of a year, an animal will likely
| be consistently producing Good-quality product, but that would not be enough
| to alter these rankings.

| Profitability of a New Animal for a Month
|
| If you're in need of some money fast - as in, this season - the above list
| might not be too helpful. After all, cows and ostriches take an entire
| season to mature, and sheep and goats take half of one.
|
| For bred animals, these parameters assume you either placed the egg in the
| incubator or used the Miracle Potion on the first day of the month.

| As you can see, your quickest bet for fast money is the silkworm, but odds
| are that when you need fast money, you won't have the yarn maker yet (as it
| costs 4500G). Your best bet early in the game is the chicken - it pays for
| itself in under a season - but grab the yarn maker, dye pot and silkworm
| when you can.

| Profitability of an Owned Animal for a Month
|
| Here, instead of assuming you're just now buying or breeding your new animal,
| we'll assume that you've had it for a while. It's probably producing one
| quality of good fairly consistently, and you want to know which animal is
| most profitable over the course of a month.
|
| Under this list, there is an extra column, simply labeled Q. This list ranks
| all the different quality levels against one another, so Q represents the
| quality of that particular good: D for Decent, G for Good, P for Perfect,
| S for Shining, and N for Not Applicable (dyed yarns, duck mayonnaise and
| ostrich mayonnaise). Given that the animal has been owned prior to the month
| we're calculating, though, how the animal was obtained is irrelevant here.
|
| Given that animal products will vary even within the same heart level, none
| of these numbers will actually describe how much profit you receive. Instead,
| this can be used to rank animals that are producing mostly a certain level of
| product. Choose the level you see most often and base your personal ranking
| on that level.

| As usual, the silkworms rule if you have an unlimited supply of flowers and
| herbs (especially blue ones). But here we see some alternative profitable
| goods that are a bit more reliable - that is, they don't require you to go
| out and get an herb or a flower to make them. Goat Cheese, for one month, is
| the most profitable quality-based good, followed by plain Silkworm Silk Yarn,
| Cow Cheese and Cow Butter. Of the goods that don't require any of the 00
| Makers, Cow Milk and Silkworm Silk are the way to go.

| Profitability of a New Animal for its Lifetime
|
| To a large extent, animal profitability over their entire lifetime mirrors
| their profitability over one month. However, there are some places when an
| alteration in an animal's lifespan has a profound impact on how profitable
| that animal ends up being over the course of its entire life.
|
| For this list, we'll be using the Perfect-quality sale price of the good to
| calculate the good's lifespan profitability. Considering that an animal can
| typically be raised to 10-hearts within a year and a half (with daily care),
| the average sale price for all goods sold in an animal's lifetime should
| average out to approximately the price of the Perfect-quality good. The only
| instance in which this might not be the case is for the silkworm, whose
| average lifespan is only 1.5 years anyway, and thus may not produce a
| substantial amount of Perfect+ quality goods; but for the sake of consistency
| we'll use sale prices for Perfect-quality silk here too.

| There you have it, the most profitable animal over its own lifespan is... the
| goat? Yeah, I was surprised too. But bought or bred, the most profitable
| animal in the game is the goat - if you have the Cheese Maker. Without the
| Cheese Maker, better opt for silkworms and sheep, if you have the yarn maker.
| And if you don't have the yarn maker, go for cows. The butter maker with
| cow milk is the next most profitable, but cows are also the most profitable
| animal if you don't have any of the four 00 Makers.
|
| Looking at the price list, it's pretty evident how much the ostrich's initial
| purchase price affects its overall profit. A purchased ostrich is arguably
| the least profitable animal over the course of its lifetime; but a bred
| ostrich is the second most profitable non-00 Maker animal. This is partially
| due to the ostrich possessing the longest lifespan among the producing
| animals.

| Notice that several products actually have negative profit margins. They are:
|  - Shining Silk Yarn (converted to Yellow Silk Yarn, Green Silk Yarn or
|    Purple Silk Yarn)
|  - Shining Yarn (converted to Yellow Yarn, Green Yarn or Purple Yarn)
|  - Shining Wool (converted to Yellow Yarn)
|  - Ostrich Eggs of Good, Perfect or Shining quality (converted to Ostonnaise)
|  - Duck Eggs of Perfect or Shining quality (converted to Duckonnaise)
|
| These are products for which it is not beneficial to "upgrade". Otherwise,
| every product can be upgraded for extra profit. The most profitable upgrades
| are nearly every colored Yarn (especially Decent Silk to Blue Silk Yarn, a
| +1700G profit increase) and Goat Cheese (a +200G increase from Shining Milk
| to Shining Cheese).

| Quickest to Profit
|
| It's not only important how much profit an animal makes - it's also important
| how soon it becomes profitable. How fast does each animal pay for its own
| cost?
|
| Note that bred chickens, ducks and ostriches have no cost, and thus their
| time until they become profitable is 0 days.
|
| Note also that like the above lists, this is utilizing only the animal's
| Decent-quality goods for calculating the time. If your animal begins to
| produce higher-quality goods, this time will obviously decrease; however,
| typically an animal won't produce higher-quality goods until after it's begun
| to be profitable (with the exception of Ostriches, which take an age and a
| half to become profitable).
|
| And as always, the list is by the product used, assuming that every product
| an animal produces is converted to that product. Days are rounded up when
| a fractional number of days occurs.
|
| 'Days' are from the day an animal becomes mature: so, for animals that take
| some time to mature after purchase or birth, the combined time is provided
| in parentheses to the right. The first number is the 'time to profit' from
| the first day the animal produces product, while the second number is the
| 'time to profit' from the day the purchase money is spent (either from the
| day the animal is purchased, or from the day that the Miracle Potion is
| purchased, assuming it is used the same day).

| Of course, there is one other consideration to make here: animals as parents.
| An ostrich, for example, will pay for itself much faster if you breed one of
| its eggs. But that's a level of math I'm not really interested in going into.

| can, with time and effort, become your pets. In past Harvest Moon games,
| these were simply wild animals - but Tree of Tranquility allows you to
| befriend and adopt these cute little woodland creatures.
|
| Wild animals can be befriended the same way as any other character:
| conversation and gifts. After meeting a wild animal, it will possess an
| affection meter in your informational screens just like any other character.
|
| Speak to the animal and give it gifts to raise its affection level: once
| you've raised its affection level to 4 hearts, it will give you a gift. The
| daily television show 'Kingdom of Wildlife' airs information about a
| different animal each week, including the gifts most preferred by each
| animal. It's notable, though, that animals typically only like food items -
| best save flowers, wool and other non-edibles for the more cultured
| villagers.
|
| Similar to villagers, the maximum about of affection you can gain with an
| animal is capped -- but unlike villagers, it's capped at 14 points, not at
| 10. That means that you'll almost always be able to give any animal two of a
| particular gift, as no gift has more than a 10 point bonus. For the maximum
| benefit for a day, give the animal gifts until they stop accepting them, or
| until their response clearly changes.
|
| At 6 hearts, you'll have the option to adopt the animal as a pet. Be careful:
| once you adopt an animal, you can't get rid of it, but if you turn down the
| initial opportunity to adopt it, you won't get the option again.
|
| If you choose to adopt the pet, you'll get to name it; then it will move into
| your house. How many pets you can adopt depends on the size of your house:
| one pet per level of the house.
|
| Once a pet has been adopted, you can talk to it and take it for a walk to
| raise its affection. Otherwise, it just hangs around your house looking cute.
| Be careful, though - pets are extremely prone to becoming angry and annoyed.
| Personally, I recommend just not taking your pets for walks. They tend to get
| annoyed when you take them to walk in Winter, when you take them to walk and
| get too far ahead of them, or when you take them to walk and leave the area.
| It's easier just to leave them home.

| The Animals
|
| In total, there are 17 animals that can be befriended, though in some
| instances there are multiple animals in a certain category (cats, dogs,
| weasels). Each animal has its own gift preferences; mister_jmp has undertaken
| finding at least a sample of good gifts to give each animal to befriend it.
|
| The best gifts to give are listed below; the very best gifts are listed
| first. Note that other gifts may be good as well; these gifts are just known
| to grant substantial gains in friendship. For a comprehensive list of all
| known Animal Gift Preferences, see the {CAP} section of the more
| comprehensive Gift Guide at this URL: 
|                         http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/55357
|
| It is recommended to use the Preferred Gifts listed below as guidelines;
| for example, cats are shown to like Catfish, Crawfish and Saury, so there is
| a strong chance they will like other fish as well.

| Mother Bear
|
|        How Many : 1
|        Location : Mt. Gelato Cave (near Mine and Goddess Spring)
|   Gift Received : None
| Preferred Gifts : Honey
|
| The mother bear is different from the other adoptable wild animals. She lives
| halfway up Mt. Gelato, and will prevent you from passing until you've
| befriended her. This is relevant because beyond her is the Harvest Goddess
| spring, home of a Power Berry, as well as other areas that must be accessed
| to continue the game plot.
|
| To get her to let you pass, feed her honey until her affection level is at
| 2 to 3 hearts. Once she trusts you this much, she'll let you pass, as well
| as let you meet her bear cub. It will take 14 honeys to befriend her, so two
| a day for a week will take care of it. Additionally, you could feed her 28
| fish at 4 a day - still only a week, though more items to give. Or any combo
| of the two will work.
|
| Once you've befriended her, she'll retreat into her cave and won't come back
| out. However, after you've befriended her, the Bear Cub will start wandering
| the lower part of Mt. Gelato.

|/Your standard tools include the axe, the hammer, the sickle and the
| watering can. There are several other tools in the game, but these four
| represent a different classification of tools: they are upgradeable.
|
| Other tools often center around taking care of animals or other extra
| activities. These tools are traditionally not upgradeable.

|/Upgradeable tools are strengthened in two different ways: they can "level
| up", which happens just by using them a certain number of times, and they can
| be "upgraded", which requires you to purchase the upgrade from the General
| Store or Blacksmith's Shop. "Leveling up" and "Upgrading" result in two
| different types of benefits.
|
| Generally speaking, leveling up a tool makes the tool more powerful. It can
| hit harder or hit more at once. To use the higher-level use, hold down A when
| using the tool and let it charge up. With each charge, you'll see an
| animation and hear a sound. Don't charge up beyond your tool's level, though,
| or your character will fail and lose stamina. For example, if your tool is
| Level 2, release A once you've seen one "power-up" animation.
|
| Upgrading makes the tool easier to use. In most cases, the only benefit to
| upgrading is that the tool consumes less stamina when used. Exceptions are
| noted below. Also note that the tool will use the same amount of stamina no
| matter how much you charge it up, so other than saving a couple seconds there
| is no reason to use a lower-level strike when you could charge the tool up
| more.

| Axe
|
|      Purpose : Chopping down trees and destroying stumps.
|     Obtained : Obtained free from Luke (to meet Luke, refer to { LUK }).
|  Leveling Up : Able to strike trees harder, and thus able to chop them down
|              : in fewer strengths. Also able to strike multiple trees in a
|              : close vicinity, though that barely ever happens.
|    Upgrading : Uses less stamina.
|        Usage : Face the tree or stump, hold A to your desired charge level
|              : (you'll see an animation and hear a sound), then release A to
|              : strike the tree. As you charge, you may see squares outlined

|              : hit to chop down. To gather the wood, pick them up just like
|              : any other item. A stump requires 2 level one hits or 1 level
|              : two or higher hit.

| Fishing Pole
|
|      Purpose : Lets you fish in rivers and the ocean.
|     Obtained : Obtain free from Toby (talk to Toby).
|  Leveling Up : Able to catch bigger/better fish.
|    Upgrading : Uses less stamina; more likely to catch better fish.
|              :
|              : For the fishing pole, leveling and upgrading interact in an
|              : interesting way. 
|              :
|              : In order to catch most rare fish at all, you need to have your
|              : pole leveled up. For example, you cannot catch a Huchen with

|              :
|              : When your rod levels, you can catch better fish; but rare fish
|              : are still rather uncommon. To make the rare fish easier to
|              : catch, you need to upgrade your rod.
|              :
|              : So, to summarize, to catch rare fish at all, you need to level
|              : your rod; to be more likely to catch rare fish, you need to
|              : upgrade it.
|        Usage : Stand facing the water and hold A until your desired charge
|              : level is reached (you'll see an animation and hear a sound;
|              : the longer you charge, the further you cast). When it's

|              : (again, you'll see an animation and hear a sound), then hold
|              : the controller vertically (for the WiiMote) or press A over
|              : and over (for the classic controller). The longer you have to
|              : hold the controller up or press A, the better the fish will
|              : be.
|              :
|  Stamina Use : Fishing pole stamina consumption occurs when you reel in the
|              : caught fish - the longer you reel, the more stamina is used.
|              :
|              : Because stamina is consumed as you reel in, not when you cast,
|              : it's usually best to stop fishing when you even start running
|              : low on stamina. Otherwise you may find yourself running out of
|              : stamina in the middle of reeling in your next fish. For more

| How to Upgrade
|
| In Tree of Tranquility, upgradeable tools are subject to two measures of
| strength: their 'upgrade' and their 'level'.
|
| 'Level' depends solely to how much a tool is used. As you use a tool, its
| 'level' will rise automatically. You'll receive alerts in the field when this
| happens.
|
| Once a tool reaches a new 'level', it will become stronger. The watering can,
| for example, will now be able to water a 1x3 line rather than just a single
| square. The sickle will cut a larger area, the hoe will hoe a 1x3 strip, and
| the axe and hammer will pack more power intro a single strike.
|
| To use the 'higher level', simply hold down the A button longer. You'll see a
| little 'charge' animation. Once you see it, release the A button to use the
| tool at that level. Be careful not to charge your tool past your maximum
| level (one charge for Level 2, two charges for Level 3, etc.), or else your
| tool usage will fail and your character will lose stamina.
|
| There are 5 levels for each tool. To use a higher level, simply watch the
| number of power charge animations - one charge for Level 2, two for Level 3,
| etc.
|
| 'Level' improves the actual function of the tool, but it does not improve the
| stamina usage of the tool. For that, we need to look at 'upgrade'.
|
| 'Upgrade' is not based on tool usage. Rather, raising a tool's 'upgrade' is
| a function of actually having the tool upgraded to a new tool.
|
| Upgrades are obtained by taking the tool, a metal and some money to the
| Blacksmith; or , you can also upgrade a tool by just taking the tool itself
| to the General Store. Either one will allow you to upgrade your tool - the
| Blacksmith is cheaper, but the General Store will not require a metal.
|
| Upgrading a tool will increase its 'upgrade', represented by the tool name
| (iron, copper, silver and gold axes). A higher upgrade level has a couple
| different applications. In all cases, the tool will use less stamina. A
| Level-5 hammer will allow you to hit a boulder very hard, but it will
| consume a ton of stamina in doing it. Upgrading that hammer to a Gold hammer
| will allow you to use its level 5 pound without destroying your stamina
| gauge. The Fishing Rod and Watering Can have additional benefits to
| upgrading, noted above.
|
| For more information on upgrade purchase prices, see the Blacksmith section
| (search for { REC } without the spaces) or the General Store section
| (search for { SUP } without the spaces).

| /
|/In order to cook, you need two things: the ingredients, obviously, and the
| cooking utensils. The ingredients are gathered everywhere: crops, animal
| products, fish and most things you find in the field can be used for recipes.
|
| Cooking utensils have to be purchased to be used: they can be bought from the
| General Store, under Makers. For a price listing, see the General Store
| section (search for { SUP } without the spaces). There are seven utensils:
| oven, frying pan, mixer, pot, cutting board, match set and aging pot. These
| utensils (except the match set) go in the kitchen inside your house; to place
| one, go to your diary and select Furniture, then select Cooking. These
| cooking utensils can only be placed on the kitchen counter. Your counter
| space increases with every upgrade of the house; only a Level 5 house can
| have all seven utensils out at once.
|
| The match set operates differently. To use it, put it in your rucksack and
| find one of those stacks of wood on the beach. Pull out the match set and use
| it on the wood pile. A fire will start: now you can roast any fish and a few
| other ingredients by using them on the fire.
|
| Also, there are a few devices that behave very similarly to cooking utensils:
| the Makers (Mayo Maker, Butter Maker, Cheese Maker and Yarn Maker) and the
| Dyeing Pot. Information on the Makers can be found in the Makers section
| (search for [ 00M ] without the spaces), but information on the Dyeing Pot
| can be found in this section.
|
| Once you have the utensils, you can start cooking dishes. Below, you'll find
| recommendations for how to cook for profit, as well as a list of every recipe
| in the game.
|
| For more detailed information on how to cook profitably, consult my Recipe
| Profits Guide, found at: www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/55271
|
| Recipe Recommendations are generally profitable recipes with easy-to-come-by
| ingredients. These are recommendations for when you want to plan what items
| to gather.
|
| Ingredient Recommendations are the good uses for each ingredient. These are
| recommendations for when you find yourself with a particular ingredient and
| want to know the most profitable way to cook it for sale.

|/In the game, there are a number of recipes that, for one reason or another,
| are very profitable to actively pursue making and selling. These recipes come
| in a few different forms: some require only a couple easy-to-find
| ingredients, while others require several ingredients that are easy to gather
| all at once (for example, all in-season together). If you're interested in
| increasing your profit through cooking, consider some of these recipes.
|
| Note that these are not the most profitable recipes in the game, but rather
| are the most profitable recipes that are also fairly easy to come by with
| some pre-planning.
|
| Several of the recipes are plausible because they rely on one of a set of
| easily obtainable ingredients: these include animal products (like Milk and
| Eggs) and ingredients that can be found in the wild (like herbs and
| mushrooms). Rarely do profitable recipes involve any ingredient bought from a
| store.

| Dyed Cloths
|
| The most obvious example of an easy and highly profitable recipe comes in the
| form of the dyed cloths: silk yarn, wool yarn and flax yarn. Silk, wool and
| flax can be converted to yarn for free using the Yarn Maker, and then dyed
| with the dye pot using flowers and herbs, most of which sell for next-to-
| nothing anyway.

| Remember, blue-dyed yarn is most profitable, followed by red, purple, green
| and yellow. Of the three yarn types, silk is most profitable, followed by
| flax; however, there's no reason to only pursue a particular one.

| Marinated Mushroom
|
| Marinated Mushrooms are one of the simplest recipes, and can be made starting
| as soon as you have a Cutting Board. Both ingredients can be found at any
| time (herbs in Praline Forest or Brownie Ranch, mushrooms in the mine), and
| the recipe has a very high profit margin. This is a great choice.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Pineapple Juice
|
| Pineapple Juice is the only recipe of its kind that I've found in the game.
| It is the only place in the game where an ingredient can be bought, used in
| a recipe and immediately sold for profit. Pineapples can be purchased from
| Pineapple Inn and immediately used to make Pineapple Juice. Each Pineapple
| bought and made grants 90G of profit on a 180G investment, so it's not an
| easy method - however, if there's a particular item you want to buy at a
| festival the following day that you don't yet have money for, Pineapple Juice
| is a great way to raise the money in time when you have no other way of
| getting the money that fast.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Colored Perfumes
|
| Colored perfumes are highly profitable if you have two of the flowers used
| for them (Blue Mists, Roses, Moondrops, Green Bells, or Lavender Flower) -
| just toss them in the Mixer.
|
| Stay away from Decent or Shining Perfume though. Decent Perfume is nearly
| never profitable, and Shining Perfume effectively requires a Blue Mist
| flower, which is more profitably used in Blue Perfume.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Stir-Fry
|
| For vegetables that can be used in Stir-Fry, Stir-Fry is an easy way to
| quickly increase the profit of the vegetable. Stir-Fry sells for a flat price
| regardless of its ingredient, so for Decent crops or just low-price crops,
| Stir-Fry is a great way to prepare them for extra profit when selling.
|
| To make sure that your particular Stir-Fry recipe will be profitable, though,
| see the Profit guide: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/55271
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Recipe Milks
|
| Several ingredients can be made into a Milk derivative, like Honeydew Milk,
| Strawberry Milk and Hot Cocoa. These recipes are only especially profitable
| when using Decent or Good ingredients, but are a great option when these
| ingredients are in-season for a bit of extra profit from combining with your
| daily milk supply.
|
| Milk Tea is made using just your Milk and an herb, making it extremely easy
| to come by. It's profitable with any type Milk except Shining, and Herbs can
| be found freely or grown cheaply.
|
| Hot Milk is even easier, made just by heating your milk in a pot. Slightly
| less profitable than Milk Tea, but useful when you lack an herb. Just don't
| use Shining Milk for this.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Pizza
|
| Pizza is very easy to make in Spring: all it requires is two Milks (one
| converted to Butter, one converted to Cheese) and a Breadfruit (combined with
| the butter for a Pie Crust). Only bother if you have a cow or goat of your
| own, though, as it's not profitable to buy the ingredients; and don't use any
| Shining Ingredients. Otherwise, it's still highly profitable.
|
| You can also add one of several vegetables to the Pizza to make it into
| Vegetable Pizza, but typically the value added by the vegetable is less than
| the sale price of the vegetable itself. It's better to save the vegetable for
| Stir-Fry.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Buckwheat Noodles with Egg
|
| Perfect Buckwheat and Perfect Eggs (or a lower quality for either) combine
| quite well to form Buckwheat Noodles with Egg. This is a great way to shore
| up your profits in the farming-slow Winter month. If you don't have a chicken
| by winter, Buckwheat Noodles on their own are a good option as well.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Doria
|
| Three of Doria's four ingredients are extremely easy to come by: Milk, Cheese
| and Mushrooms. So in Fall, growing Rice for use in Doria is quite an
| effective system. Profits are basically gone once more than one ingredients
| is Perfect or Shining, so try this only if your soil is still lacking in
| quality or when your animals aren't producing Perfect goods regularly.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Banana Pudding
|
| Banana Pudding is one of the few times in the game when a recipe can be
| profitable even if one of its ingredients is purchased rather than grown.
| Buy bananas from Pineapple Inn and combine them with basically any
| combination of chicken eggs and milk for some quick and easy profit.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Shortcake
|
| Shortcake is a pretty complicated recipe, but can be profitable if planned
| correctly. First of all, if you've fertilized your soil, don't bother as
| Perfect Strawberries destroy the profitability of this recipe. If not,
| though, planting a bunch of Breadfruit and Strawberries in Spring and
| combining them with Milk, Butter and Egg from your animals can yield pretty
| substantial profits. It's not the best option since by the time you have the
| animals to produce those goods you'll likely have fertilized your soil, but
| for some it might be useful.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Cheesecake
|
| Cheesecake is only really useful when using almost all Decent ingredients,
| but remains profitable even with higher levels of Breadfruit if most of the
| animal products are Decent or Good. So, if you have some cows and chickens,
| the Breadfruit grown in Spring can be combined with four animal products to
| make Cheesecake.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Potato Pancake
|
| As long as the ingredients aren't all Perfect or better, Potato Pancakes are
| a more profitable way to sell the standard Potato, and are a good option for
| Spring profits.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Egg Rice
|
| Egg and Rice. What could be easier? You'll likely have several eggs each day,
| so combine them with the Rice you grow in Fall for some extra profit. Just
| stick to chicken eggs for this one, as duck and ostrich eggs are often
| not profitable.

| Apple
|
| It is never profitable to use a Shining Apple in a dish. For regular Apples,
| there are two possible profitable dishes: Apple Jam and Apple Juice.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Bamboo Shoot
|
| It is never profitable to use a Shining Bamboo Shoot in a dish. For regular
| Bamboo Shoots, they are most profitable in Bamboo Rice (with any quality of
| rice); they are also equally profitable in Bamboo en Papilote and Bamboo
| Stew.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Banana
|
| Bananas are most profitable in Banana Pudding and Banana Milk. They are also
| slightly profitable in Chocolate Banana when combined with Decent Milk and
| Decent Cocoa.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Bell Pepper
|
| Bell Peppers are largely unprofitable to use in cooking. Shining Bell Peppers
| are never profitable to use, and lower-quality Bell Peppers are only
| profitable in Ratatouille and certain combinations for Vegetable Juice.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Blue Mist
|
| Blue Mist flowers are profitable both as a yarn dye and for perfume in all
| cases, except when dying Shining Wool Yarn blue. In all cases, however, it is
| more profitable to use Blue Herbs or Morning Glory flowers to dye your yarns.
| Save the Blue Mist flowers for blue perfume.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Blueberry
|
| Blueberries are most profitable in making a Blueberry Cocktail, but are also
| profitable in Blueberry Jam (though not as much so). Blueberry Juice is not
| profitable.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Bread
|
| No recipe involving Bread is every profitable. Strange, isn't it?
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Breadfruit
|
| Breadfruit is used in a huge number of recipes. It is especially profitable
| when used in any of the Cake recipes (Shortcake, Yam Cake, Cheesecake,
| Spinach Cake, Pumpkin Cake, Chocolate Cake, Carrot Cake, Orange Cake, Mont
| Blanc Cake - even Pancakes). It is sometimes profitable even when a Shining
| Breadfruit is used, though the lower-quality ones are obviously preferable.
|
| Most other Breadfruit uses actually aren't profitable. It's difficult to
| summarize Breadfruit given how many combinations the cakes account for; to
| ensure your cooking is profitable, either make sure you're using only Decent-
| and Good-ingredients, or check the lists at the Recipe Profits Guide for
| specifics: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/55271
|
| Remember also, though - when speaking about profitability, there's no reason
| to aim only for those lower-quality ingredients. If you find yourself with
| higher-quality ingredients, just sell them. That's more profitable than
| intentionally growing lower-quality ingredients just to cook with.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Buckwheat
|
| Tempura Buckwheat Noodles are extremely profitable, even when made with the
| highest-quality ingredients if Prawn is used for the crustacean. Even when
| made with the highest-possible quality for all ingredients (Shining
| Buckwheat, Shining Eggplant, Rock Lobster), though, Tempura Buckwheat Noodles
| are still profitable.
|
| Buckwheat Noodles with Egg are also extremely profitable, for almost every
| combination of Buckwheat and Egg qualities. Buckwheat Noodles on their own
| are also very profitable, and far simpler. All are great ways to shore up the
| otherwise-lacking Winter crop season.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Butter
|
| Butter is also used in many, many recipes. It is present in most of the cake
| recipes just like Breadfruit, and is profitable in most cases.
|
| Butter is also profitable when just sold on its own after being made from
| milk, but cheese is more profitable - so if you'll be selling the product
| on its own, stick with butter.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Cabbage
|
| Shining Cabbage is never used profitably in a recipe. Lower qualities are
| used profitably in Vegetable Pizza and Stir-Fry, though the most simple and
| still profitable Cabbage recipe is Pickled Cabbage.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Carrot
|
| As with all vegetables, the Carrot is particularly profitable in Stir-Fry.
| Carrots are equally good in Carrot Cake, although make sure you're using a
| good combination of other ingredients to ensure maximum profitability.
|
| Carrots are also one of the ingredients in Kimchi, a simpler dish, and
| Vegetable Salad. Carrot Juice is also profitable, but only with a
| Perfect-or-lower quality Carrot. Shining Carrots can be profitable in other
| recipes.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Cheese
|
| Cheese is used in dozens of recipes - the most profitable among these,
| though, is the three types of Pizza (Seafood Pizza, Vegetable Pizza and plain
| Pizza).
|
| Most other Cheese dishes are profitable as well. The only ones to avoid are
| Cheese Fondue and Cheese Omelet. As always, pay attention to ingredient
| qualities to make sure you're actually making something profitable. Shining
| Cheese can be profitably used in recipes.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Chestnut
|
| Chestnuts' most profitable recipe is Mont Blanc Cake - it can be profitable
| even with Shining Chestnuts (though pay attention to other ingredient
| qualities too).
|
| Chestnut Rice and Chestnut Pie also have positive profit margins, but the
| profit is very small, and only present when using normal Chestnuts, not
| Shining.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Clam
|
| The easiest clam recipe is Clam Soup, which has a very high profit margin.
|
| Clams are also an important ingredient in Seafood Doria and Seafood Rice -
| and since there are no clam qualities, they don't impact the profit margin,
| so just keep an eye on your other ingredients.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Cocoa
|
| Cocoa is used in many recipes - Chocolate Pie and Chocolate Cake have high
| profits, but Hot Cocoa is the simplest recipe for Cocoa for profit.
|
| Shining Cocoa are never used profitably in a recipe, but Perfect Cocoa can
| be.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Coconut
|
| The elusive coconut only has two recipes it can be used for, and only one is
| profitable: Coconut Juice. No need to use these for profit, just make the two
| Coconut dishes for your recipe completion.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Cocoon (Silk) & Silk Yarn
|
| Silk serves exactly one purpose in the game: conversion to Silk Yarn. And
| Silk Yarn is most profitable when dyed. So, convert it to Silk Yarn, then dye
| it.
|
| Remember, blue-dyed yarn is most profitable, followed by red, purple, green
| and yellow. For Shining Silk Yarn, only dyeing it blue is profitable - for
| the other qualities, any color is profitable.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Corn
|
| Corn recipes on the whole aren't very profitable - the most profitable is
| Corn Bread, followed by Boiled Corn and Roasted Corn. For most people it'll
| be best just to focus on the last two, considering for both Corn is the only
| ingredient. Shining Corn is never profitable, but Perfect can be.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Crustaceans
|
| Several high-profit dishes require at least one crustacean, like Seafood
| Pizza, Tempura Buckwheat Noodles, Seafood Doria, Seafood Rice, Seafood Gratin
| and Seafood Fried Rice, as well as others. Here, however, the crustacean
| has a big influence on the final profitability of the dish. If you can use
| a Crawfish, the dish will be most profitable. The Prawn is an option as well,
| but Lobsters and Rock Lobsters severely lower the dish's profitability.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Egg
|
| A ridiculous number of recipes use eggs. Most are profitable, and your supply
| of eggs probably isn't limited, so it really shouldn't matter. Just stay away
| from Chirashi Sushi and Egg Sandwiches, at least for profit. Cookies aren't
| a great option either.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Eggplant
|
| Eggplants are good for the Tempura Buckwheat Noodles, but are perhaps best
| served by being used for Pickled Eggplant. Shining Eggplant, however, is
| almost never used profitably.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Fish
|
| Most fish are most profitable when used in Sashimi or Sushi. Given the number
| of combinations for these recipes, however, it is unfeasible to examine
| the profitability of every single combination. The formulas for each fish
| recipe are described in the section below.
|
| In general, though, because what quality a fish dish turns out to be is based
| on the sale prices of the ingredients used to cook it, the six "any fish"
| dishes - Herb Fish, Sushi, Sashimi, Meuniere, Bouillabaise and Marinated Fish
| - should usually be profitable.
|
| Among the other fish recipes, most Grilled Fish recipes are profitable. The
| exceptions are Grilled Shark, Grilled Huchen, Grilled Skull Jellyfish,
| Grilled Seasky, and Grilled Rock Trout - all other Grilled Fish are more
| profitable grilled than raw. Typically, however, the difference is not very
| large - only 30G in most cases.
|
| Most other recipes involving fish are profitable as well. Seafood Pizza,
| Seafood Doria, Seafood Rice, Seafood Fried Rice and Seafood Gratin all have
| high maximum profit margins, as do Shark Fin Soup and Shark Fin Stew. Seafood
| Stew, Conger Eel Bowl, Fish Soup, Sardine in Oil and Spicy Seafood Stew are
| also profitable, though not as much so, as well as both Sardine and Saury
| Tomato Stew. However, Squid Tomato Stew, Salmon Cream Stew and Chirashi Sushi
| are never profitable.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Flax & Flax Yarn
|
| Flax serves exactly one purpose in the game: conversion to Flax Yarn. And
| Flax Yarn is most profitable when dyed. So, convert it to Flax Yarn, then dye
| it.
|
| Remember, blue-dyed yarn is most profitable, followed by red, purple, green
| and yellow. Shining Flax Yarn is only profitable when dyed blue, but other
| qualities are profitable regardless of what color they're dyed.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Flowers
|
| Flowers have two possible uses: Perfume and Dyes. For the flowers that can
| be used for colored Perfumes - Blue Mist, Rose, Moondrop, Green Bell,
| Lavender - that is the most profitable use. For the others, it's always most
| profitable to use them for dyeing yarns - certain combinations of flowers
| are profitable for Decent Perfume, but none more profitable than dyeing.
|
| Shining Perfume (not listed below) is profitable as well; however, in order
| to make it, you must use at least one Blue Mist flower, and blue perfume is
| always a more profitable. So unless you have only one Blue Mist flower, stick
| to blue perfume.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Grape
|
| None of the recipes that involve grapes are profitable enough to note. Grape
| Juice is slightly profitable, but not notably, and only when made with normal
| Grapes.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Herbs
|
| Herbs - especially blue and red ones - are best used for dyeing yarns. Beyond
| that, herbs are an ingredient in one of the highest-profit dishes, Shark Fin
| Soup.
|
| Herbs are also an ingredient in Marinated Mushroom, Marinated Fish and Milk
| Tea, three of the easiest dishes to make, all of which have a high profit as
| well.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Honey
|
| The only profitable use of Honey is in Pancakes. No other recipe involving
| honey is profitable.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Honeydew
|
| Honeydew are very rarely profitable in recipes. The only profitable use is in
| Honeydew Milk, and even then only when a Decent or Good Honeydew is used with
| a Decent or Good Milk (either Goat or Cow).
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Mayonnaise
|
| Mayonnaise isn't very profitable in any recipe. The only plausible use of it
| is in Vegetable Salad and Egg Salad, but even then it is likely more
| profitable to use the ingredients in other recipes and sell the Mayonnaise
| by itself. Shining Mayonnaise is outright never profitable used in a recipe.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Milk
|
| Milk is used in more recipes than any other ingredient. Most are profitable,
| but avoid Chocolate Fondue, Salmon Cream Stew, Stay Awake, and Super Stay
| Awake. Also remember to pay attention to qualities - while Shining Milk is
| profitable in some recipes, it is always better to use a lesser-quality
| Milk when cooking.
|
| The simplest profit from Milk can be made just from converting it to Cheese.
| Cheese is more profitable than butter.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Mushroom
|
| Mushrooms are an ingredient in Doria, but are also an ingredient in one of
| the simplest and most profitable recipes in the game: Marinated Mushrooms.
| Other Mushroom recipes are profitable too (besides Cold Medicine and Chirashi
| Sushi), but Marinated Mushrooms are by far the best option.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Onion
|
| Onions are ingredients in several profitable recipes, most of which involve
| at least three or four ingredients. All are pretty good options, though avoid
| Salmon Cream Stew.
|
| Shining Onions are often profitable as well.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Orange
|
| Orange is the key ingredient in Orange Cake, but its other uses aren't
| particularly profitable. Marmalade Jam is profitable when using two Normal
| Oranges, though not by much, and Orange Juice only adds 20G to a Normal
| Orange's sale price.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Pineapple
|
| The rare pineapple is a key ingredient in Southern Fried Rice, but its
| simplest and most profitable use is in simple Pineapple Juice, which carries
| a 150G increase.
|
| Pineapples do have another interesting application - Natsume attempted to
| remove all the instances where the player could purchase an ingredient, use
| it in a recipe, then sell for instant profit with no work. However,
| Pineapples can be purchased from Pineapple Inn for 180G, made into Pineapple
| Juice, then sold for 270G. Not a huge profit, but good if you need a
| particular amount by the next day for a specific purchase.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Pontata Root
|
| Never profitable, although if you need a Bodigizer, Stay Awake or Cold
| Medicine, it's more cost-effective to cook it yourself than sell the same
| ingredients and buy it.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Potato
|
| Most of the Potato recipes have around the same profitability, with French
| Fries and Potato Stew slightly less so. French Fries and Potato Stew are
| one-ingredient recipes, though, so they are often the better and simpler
| option.
|
| Shining Potatoes are sometimes profitable, but lower qualities are always the
| better option.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Pumpkin
|
| Pumpkin Cake has the highest profit of Pumpkin recipes, but Pumpkin Stew is
| much simpler. Avoid using a Shining Pumpkin though, as it is never profitable
| in any recipe.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Rice
|
| Rice is an ingredient in several profitable-yet-complicated dishes, like
| Seafood Doria, Doria, Seafood Rice and Seafood Fried Rice. The more useful
| uses of Rice are probably in the simpler dishes - these aren't as profitable
| per dish, but involve less ingredients. Try Bamboo Rice if you have some
| normal Bamboo Shoots (profitable even with Shining Rice) or any Risotto Dish.
|
| The most easily-produced recipe is probably Egg Rice, though it is really
| only notably profitable when used with a combination of lower-qualities.
| Mushroom Rice is also simple and profitable, though Marinated Mushrooms are
| just as easy to come by and more profitable.
|
| Shining Rice can be profitable as well.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Seaweed
|
| Seaweed is free profit - just toss it in a pot for some Seaweed Miso Soup and
| sell it for 130G more.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Spicy Pepper
|
| Spicy Pepper is an ingredient in several profitable recipes with several
| ingredients, but its only somewhat-simple recipe is Kimchi. Just stay away
| from the medicines that are made with it, at least as far as profit goes -
| although, it does save money to make the medicines yourself rather than buy
| them from the Clinic. The exception is if you only have Perfect- and Shining-
| quality ingredients, in which case it's better to sell them and buy the
| medicine.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Spinach
|
| Spinach is an ingredient in one of the most profitable recipes, Shark Fin
| Soup, but that's difficult to produce reliably given the rarity of Sharks.
| It can be used in Vegetable Pizza, Stir-Fry and Spinach Cake, but its
| simplest use is in Boiled Spinach. Just avoid using Shining Spinach for that
| recipe, and don't waste your time boiling a bunch of Perfect Spinaches either
| - the benefit isn't notable.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Strawberry
|
| Strawberry Jam is the most profitable Strawberry recipe when using
| low-quality strawberries, but the returns quickly diminish when you're using
| any Perfect or Shining Strawberries. Shortcake is also a possibility, but by
| the time you have the Milk, Butter and Egg to make it and it's Spring,
| you probably won't be growing many Decent and Good crops - and Shortcake's
| profit margin plummets when you start using both Perfect Strawberries and
| Perfect Breadfruit.
|
| Strawberry Milk is also a simple-and-profitable recipe, but essentially
| demands a Decent or Good Strawberry. So basically, just sell strawberries.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Tomato
|
| Vegetable Pizza is always an option, but Tomato Risotto is a good bit simpler
| - and no other Tomato recipe has a large enough profit margin to really
| warrant the amount of work necessary to make them. Tomato Juice is the
| exception, but even a Tomato Juice made from a Decent Tomato carries only a
| 70G profit margin.
|
| Shining Tomatoes can be profitable in Tomato Risotto, but not much else.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Turnip
|
| Pickled Turnips are one of the most easy and profitable recipes, and there is
| a positive profit margin regardless of what quality turnip you use. No other
| turnip recipe is simpler or more profitable.

| Very Berry
|
| Both Very Berry Jam and Very Berry Juice are profitable, but barely - 20G per
| Very Berry in each. It's hardly worth it.

| Wool & Wool Yarn
|
| Wool serves exactly one purpose in the game: conversion to Wool Yarn. And
| Wool Yarn is most profitable when dyed. So, convert it to Wool Yarn, then dye
| it.
|
| Remember, blue-dyed yarn is most profitable, followed by red, purple, green
| and yellow. Dyed Shining Wool Yarns are only profitable when dyed blue, and
| even then only when dyed with a blue herb or Morning Glory flower. Other
| colors are always profitable.
|

| Yam
|
| Yams don't have very many simple-yet-highly-profitable dishes, though the Yam
| Cocktail is profitable when using only Decent or Good Yams. Yam Stew is also
| an option, and ranks slightly more profitable than Yam Cocktail per Yam.
| Shining Yams are only profitable in one or two instances.

| Fish Recipe Qualities                                                       |

|/There are 41 fish in the game, and six recipes involve one ingredient that
| can be any of these fish: Herb Fish, Meuniere, Bouillabaise, Marinated Fish,
| Sushi and Sashimi.
|
| Fortunately, the six fish recipes operate on a unified mechanic, and they can
| all be profitable when done properly. For all these dishes, the quality of
| the dish is based on the sale prices of the ingredients used.
|
| The qualities are based on three cut-off points that divide the dish into
| four qualities. If the total value of your ingredients is less than the
| bottom cut-off, the dish will turn out Decent. If the total value of your
| ingredients is greater than the top cut-off, the dish will turn out Shining.
|
| For example, Herb Fish's cut-offs are at 300G, 600G and 1200G. A dish made
| from ingredients summing to 150G would be Decent; 450G would be Good; 750G
| would be Perfect; and 1350G would be Shining. These are just examples: any
| sum less than 300G will be Decent; any sum between 300G and 600G will be
| Good; any sum between 600G and 1200G will be Perfect; and any sum above
| 1200G will be Shining.
|
| Below are the cut-offs and sale prices for the six fish dishes. Use these
| numbers to determine if it's worth it to cook your fish into the dish or
| just sell them outright. Note also that for dishes involving an ingredient
| other than fish, the sale value of those ingredients counts too - so pay
| attention to your ingredient qualities. Sale prices are listed below the
| cut-off that leads to them - so if your ingredients add up to the cut-off
| or more, the below dish price will result.
|
| For convenience, the sale price of every ingredient used in any of the above
| recipes is supplied at the bottom of this section.

| /
|/Below is a list of all recipes in alphabetical order; note that there is
| a more complete recipe guide, with recipe lists by utensil, stamina, price or
| ingredient, posted elsewhere on GameFAQs. This more complete guide can be
| found at: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/53834
|
| Note that the quality of any recipe calling for any type of fish will
| depend on the value of the ingredients used - see the section directly above
| this one for more information on how fish dish qualities are chosen. Stamina
| corresponds to the amount of stamina restored by consuming that dish, while
| price corresponds to the amount that dish sells for when you make and ship
| it.
|
| Certain recipes have a symbol (or more than one) in the Notes column. This
| means that there are particular notes on this recipe. Here is what each
| symbol means:
|
| * - These recipes can also be purchased instead of made. For information on
|     where to purchase them, check the Purchasable Dishes section.
|
| ! - These recipes are all products in one of the goddess tree recipes.
|
| + - For these fish dishes, only the listed number of fish are necessary.
|     However, more fish can be used - up to as many slots are left after the
|     other ingredients are included (up to five fish for Sashimi, four for
|     Sushi and four for Herb Fish).
|
| $ - For these fish dishes, which quality you receive is based on the Fish
|     Recipe Mechanics - essentially, the quality of the dish is determined by
|     the sale prices of the ingredients used. For information on how this
|     works, see the Fish Recipe Qualities section above.
|
| ~ - These recipes have different titles on the item than is listed on the
|     bookshelf. Sweet Potato Rice is called Potato Rice on the bookshelf;
|     Sweet Potato Stew is called Yam Stew.
|
| ^ - For Perfume, if all the flowers used are of one type and that type is
|     Rose, Blue Mist, Green Bell, Lavender or Moondrop, the product will be a
|     perfume of that color regardless. If other types of flowers are used (or
|     if multiple types are used), the product will be Decent Perfume if the
|     sale value of the flowers used adds up to less than 500G; if it adds to
|     more than 500G, the product will be a Shining Perfume. Because only 5
|     flowers can be used, one of the flowers must be a Blue Mist flower to
|     achieve a Shining Perfume.
|
| Recipes calling for 'Crustacean (any)' can take lobsters, rock lobsters,
| crawfish or prawn. Recipes calling for 'Fish (any)' can utilize any fish -
| basically anything else you fish up except trash, algae, crustaceans and
| possibly Octopus and Squid. Recipes calling for 'Vegetable (any)' can have
| anything you grown on your farm from a crop (no trees). Recipes calling for
| 'Herb (any)' can take any color herb.

|/The island is inhabited by 48 different villagers, each with their own likes,
| dislikes, schedules, families and occupations. Eight of these characters
| could become your spouse (sixteen, actually, but only eight per gender).
|
| Each villager is very unique; aside from the obvious aspects that
| differentiate villagers (appearance, name and family relationships), every
| character has a unique schedule. Most characters have an occupation that they
| spend their day doing, and most also have a few other spots where they
| frequent on their days off. Several villagers live at their place of work,
| whereas others have a separate home.
|
| Each character can be befriended. Your friendship with a given character is
| measured on a 10-heart scale. You can check your friendship with any
| villager by holding down C and scrolling to the heart. For more information
| on how friendship works, check the Making Friends and Wooing a Mate section
| by searching for < MFR > without the spaces. Basic information can be found
| below.
|
| You can find any villager at any given time by selecting them from the list
| on the menu screens (where you check their Heart Level) and choosing to 
| track them by pressing A. This will tell you what district or building they
| currently are in - if you are in the same district, it will provide an arrow
| pointing to the person.
|

| Gift-Giving
|
| A major aspect that differs from character to character is their gift
| preferences. There are 540 gifts in the game, and every character has an
| opinion on each gift.
|
| Every character has five categories of gifts: 'loves', 'likes', 'neutral',
| 'dislikes' and 'hates'. 'Loves', 'likes' and 'neutral' all increase
| affection ('loves' more than 'likes', 'likes' more than 'neutral');
| 'dislikes' slightly decreases affection, and 'hates' decreases affection
| a bit more.
|
| Most characters follow a certain profile of gifts: there is one ingredient
| that they 'love' any dish that contains it, and they 'like' the ingredient
| by itself. For the most part, cooked items and high-quality animal products
| are the best gifts.
|
| Note also that the lists of likes and dislikes here are not comprehensive;
| instead they are just general frameworks for finding good gifts. If you're
| looking for an absolutely comprehensive list, check out the comprehensive
| Gift Guide: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/55357

| Heart Events
|
| For the bachelors and bachelorettes, there are certain Heart Events that mark
| your progress in wooing them. In order to wed a particular bachelor or
| bachelorette, you must witness all of their Heart Events. You can find more
| information on Heart Events by searching for [ HEV ] without the spaces, but
| basic information is below.
|
| The sections labeled '2-Heart Gift' and '5-Heart Gift' are gifts that you
| receive from that character at that heart level. The 2-Heart Gift can be
| received from both bachelors and bachelorettes (it's a friendship gift more
| than a romantic gift), but the 5-Heart Gift can only be received from
| characters of the opposite gender.
|
| Every bachelor and bachelorette also has two dates: these are triggered the
| same way for every bachelor and bachelorette, by talking to the person before
| 10:00AM on a sunny day. For some characters, it must also be their day off
| work. After they request the date, meet them at the designated location at
| 12:00PM.
|
| Finally, the final heart event is the request. Every bachelor and
| bachelorette will make a request at some point; you must fulfill the request
| to marry them. Details on how to trigger and complete each request are below.
|
| Again, for more information, search for [ HEV ] without the spaces. Many
| players have trouble with the heart events, but the [ HEV ] section and the
| < FAQ > section should answer all questions.

|/This chart is provided as an easy, printable reference to every villager,
| their home, their birthday and their arrival.
|
| 'Primary location' refers to the two place where the character spends the
| most time. 'Part-Time Job' refers to the part-time job that can be completed
| to increase that character's heart level.
|
| The 'Arrival' column follows this key:
|    Rainbow #N : this character is the Nth arrival after creating Daren's
|               : rainbow. Remember, after creating Daren's rainbow, villagers
|               : arrive on every 1st and 15th after that. Rainbow #0 refers
|               : to villagers that can't be accessed until Daren's rainbow is
|               : created, but can be accessed as soon as that happens via
|               : Pascal's ship (no waiting until the 1st/15th).
| Brownie Ranch : this character is available after destroying the boulder in
|               : front of Brownie Ranch, or after the first Animal Festival
|               : (Spring 28 of Year 1).
|  Flower Fest. : this character (Selena) arrives on the first flower festival
|               : of the game, Spring 10.
|       Initial : this character resides on the island from the beginning of
|               : the game. You may still have to trigger an introduction scene
|               : to have them start to appear, though (this is especially
|               : notable for Maya, who must be met in the Town Square on a
|               : sunny afternoon).
|
| The 'DO' column refers to the character's day off from work, and thus the day
| they don't follow their normal schedule. NA means that the character has no
| day off, while other abbreviations correspond to days of the week (Mo for
| Monday, Tu for Tuesday, We for Wednesday, Th for Thursday, Fr for Friday,
| Sa for Saturday, Su for Sunday).

|          : over to Toucan Island, as well as shuttle new villagers to your
|          : island. It's only available after completing Daren's rainbow.
|          : Note, though, that to actually ride the ferry to Toucan Island,
|          : you have to speak with Pascal inside On the Hook - thus why the
|          : Ferry is inaccessible on Mondays and holidays.
|          :
|          : Down the stairs from the pier is where you can meet Toby, and is
|          : also where all the lunch dates occur if you're playing as a male.

|          :
|          : Several people - myself included - have had trouble finding the
|          : hot spring the first time. To find it, walk all the way to the
|          : east in the River District until you hit the river. If you start
|          : to cross a bridge, you're too far south; if you hit a cliff,
|          : you're too far north. Then, when you hit the river, head north,
|          : wrap around behind the waterfall, climb the tricky rocks, walk
|          : back around the path and finally press A by the hot spring to use
|          : it.

|/As with all Harvest Moon games, festivals are one of the most entertaining
| aspects. In Tree of Tranquility, there are fewer festivals, and they fall
| into two main categories: Market festivals and Romantic festivals.
|
| Market festivals are essentially places to buy various goods from the
| villagers. Each month has a monthly market, and there are a few other markets
| as well. Markets aren't only for buying goods: there are occasionally small
| mini-games, contests and scenes, and you can talk to various villagers there.
|
| Romantic festivals are occasions to spend some time with your beloved. For
| the majority of them, you have to ask your beloved to the festival the day
| before. Some of them have the option of participating alone, but the primary
| reason for the festivals is romance.

| New Year's Day Sunrise
|
|    When : Spring 1, automatically after New Year's Eve
|   Where : Beach
|    Type : Romantic
| Details : Hardly a festival, but tradition makes me want to include this
|         : since almost every HM game has a New Year's Day event.
|         :
|         : In Tree of Tranquility, rather than a big event, New Year's Day is
|         : celebrated by watching the sunrise at the beach, alone or with your
|         : spouse if you're married. It follows right after the New Year's Eve
|         : Festival automatically.

| Flower Festival
|
|    When : Spring 10, 9:00AM to 5:00PM
|   Where : Town Square
|    Type : Market
| Details : A market festival, mainly for buying flower- and crop-related
|         : goods. Booths are run by Anissa and Ruth. There's also a mini-game,
|         : accessible by talking to Gill, that involves catching bugs.
|         :
|         : The most notable goods available at the Flower Festival are the
|         : Happy Fertilizer and Blue Herb seeds. Happy Fertilizer is the
|         : game's best fertilizer, though you won't be able to obtain it from
|         : Souffle Farm for a while, so the first Flower Festival is a great
|         : chance to get them. Blue herbs are the best ingredient for dyeing
|         : yarns, and this is the only time you can get the seeds, so it can
|         : be good to stock up if you have silkworms, sheep or flax.
|         :
|         : Note also that you meet Selena at the Flower Festival, but only if
|         : you're there after 10:00AM. If you're not there at 10:00AM or
|         : later, you'll have to wait a whole year to meet her.

| Animal Festival
|
|    When : Spring 28, 9:00AM to 5:00PM
|   Where : Brownie Ranch
|    Type : Market
| Details : The Animal Festival combines all the classic animal competitions.
|         : Instead of entering an animal in each category, you can only enter
|         : one animal. And instead of getting to choose which animal you
|         : enter, your highest-hearts one is automatically entered. The only
|         : way to change what animal is entered from year to year is to have
|         : one animal pass another in heart level, or to sell the previous
|         : entrant.
|         :
|         : To enter the contest, head to the Brownie Ranch area sometime after
|         : 9:00AM on Spring 28. Talk to Cain when you arrive and let him know
|         : you'd like to enter the contest. After saying so, whichever animal
|         : has the most hearts will automatically be entered - regardless of
|         : what species.
|         :
|         : To hear the winner, be in the area of Brownie Ranch at 5:00PM.
|         : The prize announcement will interrupt your normal play, and after
|         : it's done you'll be outside the area. If you won, re-enter the area
|         : right away and talk to the Mayor as quickly as possible to obtain
|         : your prize - if you don't hurry, he'll go home and you won't
|         : receive your prize. Yes, this is done really stupidly.
|         :
|         : To win, you need your animal to have as many hearts as possible. An
|         : animal with 10 hearts will always win something, though it won't
|         : always win first prize - it appears to be somewhat random, although
|         : replaying that one day hasn't guaranteed any change in results. If
|         : your animal has less than 10 hearts, it can still win something,
|         : though only 10 hearts will guarantee a prize.
|         :
|         : The prize listings are:
|         : 1st Prize: 120 Fodder or 120 Feed
|         : 2nd Prize:  30 Fodder or  30 Feed
|         : 3rd Prize:  10 Fodder or  10 Feed
|         :
|         : Whether you receive fodder or feed is dependent on what animal was
|         : entered: poultry will yield feed, while livestock will yield
|         : fodder.
|         :
|         : In addition to the contest, Hanna and Renee run sales booths. The
|         : most notable items available are the three yarns being sold by
|         : Hanna - reason being that these items can be purchased, dyed (if
|         : you have the barn and dye pot), and immediately sold for a profit.
|         : If you have all these tools and a healthy supply of herbs, it's
|         : great to pick a bunch up for a quick boost.

|         : bachelor/ette you wish to accompany you sometime during the day
|         : before (on Summer 6). Any bachelor/ette with 3 hearts or more can
|         : be asked to the display, so even in your first year you can have a
|         : date if you hurry.
|         :
|         : Once you speak to an eligible bachelor/ette with enough hearts on
|         : Summer 6, they will invite you to accompany them to the festival.
|         : If you agree, you won't receive any other invitations, so make sure
|         : to talk to your everyone first if you want to receive as many
|         : invitations as possible. You can decline someone's invitation and
|         : then talk to them again later to receive it again, however.
|         :
|         : When you have a date, simply go to the beach area on Summer 7 at
|         : 7:00PM and your date will begin. If you stand them up, their heart
|         : level will decrease, so keep the date! The date will begin promptly
|         : at 7:00PM, so it's best to get there before that. It will be over
|         : at 10:00PM. The area you want to be at is just down the stairs from
|         : On the Hook, in front of the General Store.
|         :
|         : Obtaining the date is actually identical when you're married,
|         : except that only your husband/wife will invite you. Simply speak to
|         : them the day before and the date will be set up.

|         :
|         : You have six options: banana milk, broiled shark, Pinkcat flower,

|         :
|         : You'll likely notice that Amethyst isn't listed as the 'best' gift
|         : option for any child, but it's not a bad gift option either - just

| Obtaining and Strengthening the Rod
|
| In order to fish, first you naturally must obtain a fishing rod. Obtaining
| the fishing rod is very simple: meet Toby outside On the Hook, down the
| stairs from the pier. He'll give you one for free. Now wasn't that easy?
|
| As far as strengthening goes, however, there are two ways to strengthen the
| rod: you can 'upgrade' it and you can 'level' it.
|
| 'Leveling' your rod occurs just from standard use. Every time you catch and
| reel in a fish, your rod gains points towards its next level. Your progress
| can be observed on the Tools screen of the in-game status screens.
|
| When your rod reaches a new level, you'll be able to hold down A longer when
| casting to cast further. In this way, you'll be able to catch rarer fish.
| Certain fish cannot be caught at all until your rod has leveled up.
|
| The other method of strengthening is 'upgrading' your rod, which happens at
| either the Blacksmith's Shop or the General Store. At the Blacksmith's Shop,
| you can upgrade your rod by paying a fee and supplying a Metal corresponding
| to the next level of rod (Iron, Copper, Silver, Gold); at the General Store,
| you can upgrade your rod just by paying the fee, but the fee is three times
| higher than the Blacksmith's Shop.
|
| 'Upgrading' your rod makes it use less stamina when you reel fish in, but it
| also increases your odds of catching rarer fish. Your rod must be leveled
| to catch rarer fish, but once leveled, upgrading it is the only way to
| increase the likelihood of catching the rarer fish over the more common fish.
|
| For more detailed information on tools, leveling and upgrading, search for
| { UPG } without the spaces.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FHT} _
| How to Fish
|
| Fishing in Tree of Tranquility is a relatively easy process. Once you have
| your rod, simply go to one of the several fishing spots, equip the rod and
| use it by pressing A (motion controls are also available, though are not
| necessary). Then, when a fish bites (you'll be alerted by a sound, a visual
| change, and a controller vibration), press A repeatedly or hold the
| controller vertically to reel the fish in. Holding the controller vertically
| is obviously easier, but for the Classic Controller you'll have to press A
| as fast as you can.
|
| Unlike some recent Harvest Moon games, you won't actually see fish nibbling
| on your line in the water. Instead, you must simply wait patiently while your
| hook dangles until something bites.
|
| If you successfully reel in the fish, it will appear in your hands and you
| can either drop it or put it in your rucksack. If you fail, it will swim off
| and you'll have to cast again.
|
| If you have an leveled-up fishing rod, you can power it up by holding it
| vertical for longer (for the WiiMote), or by holding the A button longer.
| It's necessary to power your rod up to catch better fish.
|
| Only same-type fish will stack in your rucksack, but chances are you won't
| catch enough varieties of fish on a single trip for that to matter.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FST} _
| Stamina
|
| Stamina use while fishing is interesting. Casting your line will use no
| stamina, and neither will sitting there waiting for a fish. The only time
| stamina is consumed is when a fish is resisting and you're trying to reel it
| in.
|
| This makes for some very interesting strategy, because this is the only tool
| usage in the game where you can run out of stamina halfway through using a
| tool. With other tools, you know if one more use will deplete your stamina
| fully, but with a fishing rod it's dependent on how fast you reel in the
| fish (which itself is only dependent on the type of fish caught, not on your
| reeling skill).
|
| As mentioned above, better rods take less stamina to reel in their fish, so
| upgrade when you get the chance.
|

| Why Fish?
|
| Fishing has many important uses in the game. Its usage is not as varied as
| mining and some other activities, but it is equally important:
|
|  - Profit. Fishing is a great way to make some extra money. Many fish sell
|    for upwards of 200G, making it easy to make some extra cash in your spare
|    time, especially with a leveled and upgraded rod from the best fishing
|    spots.
|
|  - Power Berry. Fishing is the only way to obtain a certain Power Berry. To
|    obtain it you must level your rod up to level 3 (note: you don't need to
|    upgrade it for this Power Berry, just level it through usage). The next
|    time you cast after that, you'll fish up this Power Berry.
|
|  - Food. Fish make great dishes, and are the ingredients in dozens of the
|    game's recipes.
|
|  - Completion. One of the items accessible on the bookshelf screens is a
|    "Fish List", which contains a list of all the possible fish obtained from
|    the rivers and ocean. If you're a completionist, you'll want to complete
|    this too.
|
|  - Goddess Recipes. By far the most important reason to fish is that every
|    single goddess recipe requires at least one fish:
|      - Carp for Daren's tree.
|      - Char for Ben's tree.
|      - Saury for Collin's tree.
|      - Wood Fish for Alan's tree.
|      - Tuna for Edge's tree.
|    Daren's tree also requires a Good Herb Fish, a fish-related dish that must
|    be cooked yourself.

| Tips for a Successful Expedition
|
| If you're going on a fishing trip with the intention of bringing back a nice
| haul, here are a few tips:
|
|  - Choose your spot carefully. Some spots have much better fish available
|    than others, and there's no point spending all day at a spot when there's
|    better fish to be had elsewhere.
|
|  - Use the weather. Certain weather patterns are better for fishing, most
|    notably rain. This is especially convenient given that rainy days mean
|    no crop watering, adding to the time you can spend fishing.
|
|  - Get there early, stay late. The best fishing times are early in the
|    morning and late at night, so either plan to spend all day there or do
|    your chores around mid-day when the fish are less active.
|
|  - Bring stamina-restoring items. Fishing depletes your stamina fast,
|    especially before you get any Power Berries or upgrade the rod: restoring
|    items will help. The best items for stamina recovery are Bodigizer XL,
|    any type of Pizza or any type of Buckwheat dish (except for Cocktails
|    or Chips). The best purchasable stamina recovery items are Bodigizer XL
|    (520G from the Clinic), Southern Omelet (550G from Pineapple Inn) and
|    Sweet Yam Cake (660G from the Fall/Winter markets).
|
|  - Decide whether to bring a match set. On the positive side, a match set
|    allows you to cook one of the fish you eat for free stamina restoration.
|    On the negative side, it takes up a spot in your rucksack. If you're
|    fishing near the ocean, where all the bonfire pits are located, it's a
|    good idea to bring one; but it's useless if you're fishing in the river.

|/There are 41 different fish in Tree of Tranquility. All can be caught using
| some level fishing rod, and some can be purchased as well. Many can be used
| in recipes.
|
| 'Rarity' is my own device to describe how difficult it is to catch a certain
| fish - it is not actually a function in the game. Essentially, a fish with
| rarity 1 is easily catchable with the lowest-level rod, whereas a fish with
| rarity 4 requires a higher-level rod and a bit of luck. A fish with rarity 5
| requires a higher-level rod and also has some special condition associated
| with it.
|
| 'Presses' refers to the number of button presses are required to reel the
| fish in. Holding the controller vertically is easier, but the button presses
| give a general gauge for how difficult each fish is to reel.

| The Basics
|
| Mining is a rather simple process. To start, just grab your hammer (not your
| hoe, like in some past Harvest Moon games) and enter the mine - mine
| locations can be found under the "The Mines" section (search for [ MIN ]
| without the spaces).
|
| Descend the first staircase at the entrance to find yourself on the 1st floor
| of the mine (note that mine floors are numbered top-to-bottom, so the 1st
| floor is the closest to the surface and the 50th floor is the closest to the
| bottom). Every floor (with a few exceptions) operates in the same way: a
| large area with several characteristic items. These include:
|
|  - Stairs: Each floor contains two staircases: one going up, and one going
|    down.
|
|  - Cracks: Most floors contain some cracks in the ground, marked by 'X's.
|    These X's, when stepped on, become either holes or geysers, plummeting you
|    down or rocketing you up a random number of floors.
|
|  - Rocks: Rocks are the foundation of the mine. Smashing them can yield Ores,
|    items or afflictions.
|
|  - Crystals: Crystals are like rocks, except they house more valuable
|    treasures, called Wonderfuls, and can also hold afflictions.
|
|  - Items: There are also some items that can be immediately spotted on the
|    mine floor. These can be picked up just like any other item.
|
| When you break a rock or crystal, you will sometimes find an item contained
| in the rock - this is the entire purpose of mining. If you do, you can either
| pick it up or leave it - if you leave it, it will remain on the ground
| indefinitely. You'll need to put your tool away to pick it up, and you can
| obviously only put it in your rucksack if you have space. Ores and wonderfuls
| dug up in the mine do not stack, unfortunately, although Pontata Roots,
| Mushrooms and Toadstools will.
|
| How you behave in a mine will depend on what you intend to do. Sometimes
| you'll want to get down to a certain level, sometimes you'll just want to get
| down as far as you can, and sometimes you'll just want to find a particular
| item.
|
| Regardless of what you're there to do, though, the controls remain the same.
| Break rocks to try to find Ores; break crystals to try to find Wonderfuls;
| to descend, get to the staircase or step on an 'X'; and to ascend and leave
| the mine, get to the up staircase and choose 'top floor'.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {SHG} _
| Stairs, Holes and Geysers
|
| There are two ways to descend the mine: stairs and holes. Stairs are the
| reliable way: when you approach the downward staircase, you'll be
| automatically transported down one level in the mine - never more than one.
|
| Oftentimes the stairs are visible immediately upon entering a level of the
| mine. However, sometimes - especially at lower floors - the staircase is
| hidden under a rock. To find it, look for a rock that has nothing bordering
| it, on the sides or diagonally. Only rocks with nothing bordering them can
| cover up staircases. Bust these rocks until you find the staircase.
|
| Cracks are a riskier, but often faster, way of descending. If you step on an
| 'X', you will fall down a random number of floors in the mine, between 1 and
| 5. Additionally, cracks are often much more accessible than the stairs, given
| that a particular floor will contain several cracks but only one staircase.
| So, cracks are often a more efficient method for descending the mine - and,
| though you might suspect otherwise, holes carry no stamina penalty.
|
| Cracks have a risk associated with them, however: sometimes when you step on
| a crack, it will become a geyser instead of a hole. Geysers propel you
| upwards a random number of floors.
|
| Geysers become more frequent at lower floors, making it more difficult to get
| to the deepest sections of the mine. It's best to stick to stairs once you
| get down to the last 10 floors of the Ganache Mine and the last 20 floors of
| Mt. Gelato Mine.
|
| Ascending to the top of the mine can also be done by simply touching the
| upwards staircase: you'll receive the option to automatically ascend all the
| way to the surface.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {AFL} _
| Afflictions
|
| "I think I have the black lung, pop." Zoolander quotes aside, Ores and
| Wonderfuls aren't the only things that pop up when you break a rock or
| crystal. There are multiple afflictions that come in the form of different
| colored gases. These afflictions will affect your efforts to descend the
| mine:
|
|    Red : Stamina loss (your character loses stamina points - 20 for 'lost a
|          little stamina', 50 for 'lost a lot of stamina')
|   Blue : Temporary paralysis (inability to move for around 10 seconds, though
|        : no game time will pass).
|  Green : Stamina restoration (your character regains around 300 stamina
|        : points).
| Purple : Temporary confusion (joystick directions no longer map to the
|        : character's direction, and randomly change).
|  Black : Blindness (the visibility around your character drastically
|        : shrinks).
|  White : Slowness (your character's movement speed is severely restricted) or
|        : Quickness (your character's movement speed is drastically raised).
| Yellow : Stamina restoration (your character regains around 100 stamina
|        : points).
|
| You can get rid of any non-stamina related afflictions by changing floors,
| either by stepping on an 'X' or ascending/descending a staircase.
|
| Afflictions will spread outward from the initial location in various
| patterns and at different speeds. Oftentimes you'll be able to avoid the
| affliction before it hits you - just run away as soon as you hear the sound
| of a gas spewing. Unfortunately you'll likely also miss the stamina
| restoration gasses, but that's a small price to pay.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {OAW} _
| Ores and Wonderfuls
|
| The two main items that can be found in the mine are Ores and Wonderfuls.
| Both are only accessible by smashing apart rocks (for Ores) and crystals (for
| Wonderfuls). When a rock or crystal is smashed, an ore or wonderful may
| appear on the ground for you to pick up.
|
| Ores and Wonderfuls themselves are very different from the way ores and gems
| have been obtained in past Harvest Moon games. If I could italicize this
| next sentence, I would: Ores and Wonderfuls, by themselves, are essentially
| worthless. They have very low shipping values and cannot be used for tool
| upgrades, jewelry creations or effective gifts.
|
| Instead, Ores and Wonderfuls hold within them Metals and Gems. It's as if the
| true "identity" of the Ore or Wonderful is hidden from you, and can only be
| established by a gifted refiner - and conveniently, there is a gifted refiner
| on the island: Mira.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {APR} _
| Refining
|
| Every Ore and Wonderful houses an item. Sometimes the item is of a greater
| value, but sometimes the item is junk. The item an Ore or Wonderful holds
| corresponds to the color/type of the Ore or Wonderful: for example, Gold Ore
| contains either Gold (the treasure) or scrap iron (junk). Wonderfuls have
| three different levels of treasure: for example, a red-colored Wonderful can
| contain a Ruby (high-value), a Spinel (medium-value), a Rose Stone
| (low-value) or glass (junk).
|
| So how are you to tell what your Ores and Wonderfuls are? That's where Mira
| comes in. Mira works at the Blacksmith's Shop every day after you meet her
| at the graveyard on a sunny day, and she is a specialist at refining your
| Ores and Wonderfuls. She'll even do it free of charge. To get Mira to refine
| your materials, talk to her over the counter and choose 'Refine' - don't just
| talk to her with the item in your hands or you'll inadvertently give it to
| her.
|
| Mira will let you know what the item truly is and will give it back to you:
| after that, the item will be identified in your rucksack as the Metal or Gem
| instead of an Ore or Wonderful. After that, you can use it for jewelry or
| tool upgrades. It will also make a better gift, and the shipping value will
| will be much higher. Metals and Gems will stack as well.
|
| This presents a minor problem with mining though: wouldn't you hate to go to
| the mines and grab 8 Wonderfuls, only to find out that they're all glass? Or
| to pick up a bunch of Gold Ore, only to find out they're all scrap? Luckily,
| there is a way to identify the value of the item held within an ore or
| wonderful while out mining: sparkles. When you uncover an ore or a wonderful,
| it may sparkle on the ground. If an Ore sparkles, it contains the
| corresponding (Iron, Copper, Silver, Gold) Metal; if a Wonderful sparkles,
| it contains a Gem. Which Gem the Wonderful contains is indicated by the
| number of sparkles it has after you pick it up and put it in your rucksack: a
| three-sparkle Wonderful contains the most valuable Gem of that color, whereas
| a one-sparkle Wonderful contains the least valuable Gem (though a Gem
| nonetheless).
|
| However, in order to use the Metal or Gem in tool upgrades or jewelry, and
| in order to have it sell for a higher price, it still must be manually
| refined by Mira. The sparkles are only there to help you identify what each
| Ore or Wonderful is while mining.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {MOL} _
| Moles
|
| Sometimes when you're mining, you'll come across a little mole in the field.
| Make sure PETA isn't watching, then smash the mole with your hammer. If you
| succeed, the mole will cough up an item: typically just a Mushroom or a
| Toadstool, but sometimes something more valuable, like a Bodigizer. How the
| mole got his hands on one of those is beyond me.
|
| Interestingly, moles are only found on floors ending in the number 5. They
| have been observed dropping seven different items: Mushrooms, Toadstools,
| Pontata Roots, Stay Awake, Super Stay Awake, Bodigizer and Bodigizer XL.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {WHM} _
| Why Mine?
|
| So, there's this great big part of the game called mining where you can
| dig up random stuff from the ground. So what, why bother?
|
| There are several useful reasons to make use of the mine:
|
|  - Cheaper tool upgrades. While you can upgrade your tools by simply
|    purchasing new ones at the General Store, it's a good deal cheaper to
|    upgrade them at the Blacksmith's Shop - but, he requires you to supply
|    the mineral for the upgrade.
|
|  - Jewelry. In order to make jewelry, you must supply the minerals and gems.
|    And since there's nowhere else to get them except the mine, you're locked
|    into that option if you want to make jewelry.
|
|  - Profit. Mining in Tree of Tranquility is a notably profitable task. Just
|    picking up a few Coppers and Silvers can yield a quick 500G, and your
|    profits will soar even higher if you get far enough down to start digging
|    up some gemstones, which sell for everything from 170G (Peridot) to 1000G
|    (Diamond). Additionally, harvesting the Toadstools and Mushrooms from the
|    mine is hugely profitable. Make Marinated Mushrooms with an herb, mushroom
|    and a cutting board for an even larger profit.
|
|  - Power Berry and Pontata Roots. One of the game's five Power Berries is at
|    the bottom of the first (Ganache) mine, and the mines are also the best
|    place you can find Pontata Roots, a key ingredient in the medicine
|    category of recipes (Bodigizer, Bodigizer XL, Cold Medicine, Stay Awake
|    and Super Stay Awake). Additionally, an item at the bottom of the Mt.
|    Gelato Mine (the Shining Baumkuchen) has a high sale price and is loved as
|    a gift by all villagers, though you can get it only once.
|
|  - Completion. One of the items accessible on the bookshelf screens is a "Gem
|    List", which contains a list of all the possible products obtained from
|    the mines. If you're a completionist, you'll want to complete this too.
|
|  - Villager Events. Several events take place in the mine: you will meet both
|    Phoebe and Calvin in the mine, and both (as well as Owen) will require you
|    to re-visit the mine in order to complete their requests. You'll also need
|    to visit the mine to complete the goddess quest.
|
|  - King Fish. The lake at the bottom of Ganache Mine is one of only two
|    places to find the elusive King Fish, and is the only one accessible
|    for the majority of the game (the other location requires you to complete
|    the goddess revival).
|
|  - Goddess Recipes. Two items required for the goddess recipes - a Blue
|    Wonderful and a Lapis Lazuli - are only obtainable within the mines.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {DTM} _
| Descending the Mine
|
| If your goal is to descend pretty deep into the mine, here are a few tips:
|
|  - Bring recovery items. Stamina will be a major threat to your descent, and
|    you'll be kicking yourself if you get down to the last 5 floors and run
|    out of stamina. The best items for stamina recovery are Bodigizer XL,
|    any type of Pizza or any type of Buckwheat dish (except for Cocktails
|    or Chips). The best purchasable stamina recovery items are Bodigizer XL
|    (520G from the Clinic), Southern Omelet (550G from Pineapple Inn) and
|    Sweet Yam Cake (660G from the Fall/Winter markets).
|
|    Be careful using Mushrooms to restore stamina. They work, but they also
|    increase your fatigue. If you eat too many, you'll get drowsy and walk
|    too slowly to really do anything. To prevent this, don't eat more than 14
|    Mushrooms in a day.
|
|  - Start early. You don't want to stay there all night and into the next day
|    (unless you brought some Super Stay Awake), so get there early.
|
|  - Plan to spend the whole day. You never know how long it will take you to
|    get as far down as you want to go, so don't leave any chores - like
|    watering the crops or feeding the animals - for when you get back.
|
|  - Empty your rucksack of non-consumables. You'll be kicking yourself if you
|    come across five Diamonds but only have four spots in your rucksack. Keep
|    only food and your hammer in your rucksack if you plan to bring home a big
|    haul.
|
|  - Use the holes first, then the stairs. For the first few levels, the holes
|    are a great way to get down fast. But after about 2/3rds of the way down,
|    you'll find they lead to geysers more often, making them too risky. You'll
|    almost never encounter a hole that takes you all the way to the bottom
|    either, so don't plan to just use holes and assume eventually you'll get
|    lucky enough to go all the way down.

|/As in past Harvest Moon games, Tree of Tranquility operates based on a points
| system for affection. Affection is basically a measure of how close you are
| with each villager. Affection exists for all villagers, but plays a special
| role for the player's potential spouses. But before we get to that, let's
| take a look at how to earn affection.
|
|\
| \_____________________________________________________________________[AFF]_
|                                                                             |
| Raising Affection                                                           |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Below is a list of general ways to increase your affection (or friendship)
| with a given villager. For more specific details on the impact of each way,
| read the Affection Mechanics section below.
|
|  - Gifts: Giving gifts is the most clear way to gain friendship. Each
|    villager has gifts that they love, like, dislike and hate (see the
|    specific villager above for detailed information for each one). Giving
|    gifts that they love or like raises their affection ('love' more than
|    'like', obviously), whereas giving gifts they dislike or hate will lower
|    their friendship level.
|
|    Gifts are especially effective when given on birthdays: a birthday gift
|    given on a villager's birthday carries double the impact of the same gift
|    given any other day.
|
|  - Talking: Even just talking carries an affection increase. It's lower than
|    gift-giving, but just speaking to a villager every day will help you
|    become their friend.
|
|  - Part-Time Jobs: the part-time job system in Tree of Tranquility also
|    serves as a way to get into specific villagers' good graces. Working at
|    a shop will increase your friendship with all the other villagers that
|    also work in the shop. To see what shop applies to each villager, refer to
|    the villager's Workplace in the sections above, or search for { PTJ }
|    without the spaces.
|
|    Part-time work also raises the affection points of villagers that have not
|    yet arrived if you work where they'll eventually work. For example,
|    working at the General Store will raise Phoebe's affection points even
|    before she arrives. You can even receive a villager's 2-heart gift event
|    before they arrive this way.
|
|  - Heart Events and Festivals: for bachelor/ettes, there are several heart
|    events that take place that mark your progress in wooing them, as well as
|    several romantic festivals that you can take your beloved to. Successfully
|    completing these heart events and participating in these festivals will
|    increase your affection level, but only with the bachelor/ette that is
|    participating.
|
| Every villager's affection - or what's commonly referred to as heart level -
| is measured in the same way, using the 10-heart system. Each heart is
| comprised of 100 points - so, it takes 1000 affection points to raise a
| villager to the maximum level.
|
| The actions listed above each carry a bonus of a certain number of affection
| points. Performing these actions adds some points to the villager's affection
| counter - the heart display in the information screen shows the total number
| of points, rounded down to the nearest hundred, as a number of hearts.
|
| The two most prominent ways of raising affection are Gift Giving and Talking.
| Talking to a villager is worth 5 affection points - so, if you simply talk
| to a villager every day, you'll raise their heart level by one heart in 20
| days. The 'talking' benefit can only be gained once per villager per day.
|
| Gift-giving, however, is far faster - however, it can be a good bit more
| complicated, and is detailed in the section below.
|

| \_____________________________________________________________________[GGM]_
|                                                                             |
| Gift-Giving Mechanics                                                       |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/Gift-giving is the most effective way to raise affection, but is also a bit
| more complicated. To put it simply, you can give a villager gifts until
| they've gained 10 affection points from gift-giving for the day. After
| they've gained 10 points, they will not accept any more gifts. Depending on
| how well they like the gifts you give them, it could take as many as five or
| as few as one gift to gain these 10 points. It will never take more than five
| gifts, though.
|
| How many gifts you need to give is determined by how well the villager likes
| the item you're giving them. There are five broad levels of gift preference:
| a villager might 'love', 'like', 'dislike', 'hate' or be 'neutral' to a
| particular gift. Gift preferences differ completely from villager to
| villager, though there are gifts that are definitely far more generally liked
| than others.
|
| The good news about this is that giving Neutral-level gifts can be just as
| useful as giving Loved gifts - you just have to give more of them. A common
| strategy is just to have several items on hand and give a person as many as
| they'll accept, guaranteeing that you've hit the maximum daily limit. This
| can be expensive, though, given that gifts are not always easy to come by,
| so it's far better to look into gifts that are better liked.
|
| There is a bit of variation within the five levels. While a Loved gift always
| carries a 10-point gain, a Liked gift can carry either 8 points or 6 points.
| Neutral gifts can be 4, 3 or 2 points.
|
| Disliked and Hated gifts actually carry an affection penalty; Disliked gifts
| can take off 1 or 2 points, while Hated gifts can take off 3, 4 or 5.
|
| The following chart describes the affection boosts of each action and gift.
| For gifts, remember that giving gifts that total more than 10 heart points
| will cap off at 10 (so, two Liked gifts will only gain 10 affection points,
| even though they might add to 12 or 16).
|
|                   Max Times
| Action             per Day       Heart Points
|          Speaking      1               + 5
|    Part-Time Work      1               + 1 (per hour worked, rounded up)
|      'Loved' Gift      1               +10
|    'Liked 1' Gift      2               + 8
|    'Liked 2' Gift      2               + 6
|  'Neutral 1' Gift      3               + 4
|  'Neutral 2' Gift      4               + 3
|  'Neutral 3' Gift      5               + 2
| 'Disliked 1' Gift  Unlimited           - 1
| 'Disliked 2' Gift  Unlimited           - 2
|    'Hated 1' Gift  Unlimited           - 3
|    'Hated 2' Gift  Unlimited           - 4
|    'Hated 3' Gift  Unlimited           - 5
|
| For the purposes of this guide, we'll only be categorizing gifts as 'Loved',
| 'Liked, 'Neutral', 'Disliked' and 'Hated'. Within those categories, the
| difference is fairly minor.
|
| Birthdays double both the heart points gained from a gift and the cap on how
| many heart points can be gained in one day - so, on a person's birthday, each
| gift counts for twice as many points, and you can get up to 20 heart points.
| In effect this won't change how many gifts you give, only how much you gain
| from it.

| Heart Events
|
| All villagers have affection ratings that indicate how strong your friendship
| with them is; however, this plays a special role with regards to the
| potential spouses. Rises in affection level trigger Heart Events, which must
| be completed to marry your chosen spouse.
|
| Heart Events are generally the same for each bachelor/ette. There are five
| events that must be completed before you can marry a bachelor/ette; they can
| be completed in any order, but they must be completed before they will accept
| the marriage proposal.
|
| The five heart events are:
|  - At 2 Hearts, they will come to your house and give you a present (note:
|    this happens with every bachelor and bachelorette, regardless of your own
|    character's gender - it's more of a friendship event than a romantic one).
|  - At 4 Hearts, they will ask you on a Lunch Date.
|  - At 5 Hearts, they will again come give you a present.
|  - At 5 hearts, they will also make a request that must be fulfilled before
|    marriage.
|  - At 6 Hearts, they will ask to meet you at Brownie Ranch for a Confession.
|
| The Lunch Date and the Confession event are a bit delicate to trigger. In
| order to trigger them, you must talk to that bachelor/ette before 11:00AM,
| and for certain bachelor/ettes (the ones with jobs), it must also be on their
| day off. It's pretty easy to go through a game without triggering these
| events if you don't actively try to.
|
| When you trigger the event, they will ask you to meet them somewhere at noon.
| If you accept, you must be at the location between 12:00PM and 1:00PM. For
| the lunch date, bachelors will ask you to the Sundae Inn and bachelorettes
| will ask you to the beach, down the stairs from the pier by On the Hook. For
| the confession, both genders will ask you to the tree on Brownie Ranch (past
| the barn and coop on top of the hill).
|
| There's a minor glitch if you trigger either the Lunch Date or the Confession
| on the day before or day of a romantic festival. The details are a little
| complicated, but suffice it to say it's best to avoid talking to bachelors
| and bachelorettes that might ask you on the Lunch Date or Confession the day
| before or of a romantic festival. Not a huge issue, though.
|
| Turning down the date or missing the date will both result in a dramatic
| decrease in the bachelor/ette's affection level - as much as a full heart
| level. This serves a double purpose: it's plot-relevant, since obviously the
| bachelor/ette would be offended to be turned down, but also it allows you to
| then trigger the date request again by leveling their heart level back up.
| So if you choose 'no' by accident, or change your mind about which bride or
| groom you want, you can still recover from it.
|
| In order to marry a particular bachelor/ette, you must complete all five
| heart events. You also must obtain the Blue Feather, the Harvest Moon
| equivalent of an engagement ring, but that is actually unrelated to the
| Heart Events. For information on that, see the Proposal section below.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ [RHE] _
| Rivals' Heart Events
|
| As mentioned above, some of the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes will
| marry one another if you don't. These couples are:
|  - Anissa and Jin
|  - Candace and Julius
|  - Maya and Chase
|  - Phoebe and Calvin
|  - Renee and Toby
|
| Like you and your beloved, these couples will experience heart events of
| their own, and will get married after they meet certain requirements.
|
| When your rivals' heart events will take place is dependent on your own
| friendship with the character of your own gender. The first heart event will
| take place at 2 hearts, and the second heart event will take place at 3
| hearts. Once the 3-heart rival event has taken place, a wedding will follow.
|
| You might notice that these rival weddings have the potential to take place
| incredibly early in the game: after all, you can raise a character to 3
| hearts in a matter of a month. Be careful not to raise the rival of your
| hopeful beloved to 3 hearts before marrying them yourself. This is especially
| dangerous with couples where one person is on the island long before the
| other (for example, Maya and Chase).
|
| Each couple has a particular location where their heart events will take
| place:
|  - Anissa and Jin: Meringue Clinic
|  - Candace and Julius: Town Square
|  - Maya and Chase: Sundae Bar
|  - Phoebe and Calvin: Ganache Mine
|  - Renee and Toby: River, Upstream near the Waterfall (any Monday afternoon)
|
| If you've accidentally raised the rival to 3-hearts and want to avoid them
| marrying, try to avoid the above locations; they won't marry until you
| witness the heart events, which will never happen if you never enter these
| locations. For some couples (like Toby and Renee), it can be easy to avoid
| the location, but for others (Jin, Chase, Calvin, Phoebe) you actually must
| enter those locations in order to complete their heart events. In these
| cases, your only option is to manually lower the rival's heart level by
| giving them lots of Disliked and Hated gifts.

| Marriage Proposal                                                           |
|  ___________________________________________________________________________|
| /
|/In order to propose marriage, you need the Blue Feather. In past Harvest Moon
| games, the blue feather has been bought, found or earned: in this game,
| you'll find it.
|
| Once any bachelor/ette is up to 8 hearts, the Mayor will come by and explain
| to you the legend of the Blue Feather, and inform you that the feather is
| traditional for marriage proposal. Note that he will only come on a sunny
| day, though he may come on festival days, and you must have at least 3-4
| hearts with him for him to come.
|
| A few days after the Mayor comes by (sometimes as much as two weeks), you'll
| see a bluebird in the morning flying off towards Caramel Falls. Enter
| the waterfall area and start to walk around towards the hot spring and you'll
| trigger the scene where you'll receive the Blue Feather.
|
| To use the Blue Feather, present it to your chosen beloved just like any
| other gift. If successful, you'll trigger a marriage scene. In order for them
| to accept it, though, you must have completed all 5 of their heart events.
| After proposing, you'll be assigned a wedding date, usually one to two weeks
| after the proposal.
|
| Interestingly, the bachelor/ette doesn't have to be at 8 hearts to accept the
| proposal; so you can receive the Blue Feather for one bachelor/ette having
| 8 hearts, then use it on a different bachelor/ette. This is pretty useful if
| you're wooing someone that arrives on the island late.
|
| Note that these are the ONLY requirements for marriage. Others have been
| rumored, like having a double bed, but that is not the case.
|
| There are also a few restrictions on when and where you can propose. It must
| be on a sunny, non-festival day, and for many bachelor/ettes, it must be
| while they're off of work. In the character sections above, known-to-work
| proposal locations are listed. If you're having trouble getting someone to
| accept your proposal, make sure to attempt it at the listed location and
| time.
|
| Probably the most frequently asked question I receive is "why won't so-and-so
| accept my proposal?" The answer is ALWAYS that you haven't experienced all
| their events. Make absolute sure you've experienced all of the heart events
| listed above. Then make sure you're proposing in the location listed. One of
| these two things is nearly guaranteed to fix the problem, or at least narrow
| it down to which event is the issue.

|/After marriage (I won't spoil the wedding ceremony for you), your new spouse
| will move in with you on the farm. Unlike in previous Harvest Moon games
| where your spouse spends the vast majority of their time around your farm, in
| Tree of Tranquility they'll actually go out and do things. Wives will quit
| their jobs (if they had one) but spend more time out shopping (no word on if
| they'll actually be spending any of your hard-earned money - not sure the
| game's gotten that realistic yet!), whereas a husband keeps his job (but
| never helps pay for supplies for what he calls your "cute little farm
| thing", male chauvinist pig).
|
| Every day, your spouse will give you a box lunch. The box lunch has four
| possible qualities: Decent, Good, Perfect, Shining. You can either sell your
| box lunch or consume it for stamina restoration. The price and stamina
| restoration increase with the box lunch quality:
|
|           Price   Stamina
|  Decent :   80G       200
|    Good :   90G       250
| Perfect :  100G       300
| Shining :  110G       350
|
| Should you sell them or eat them? Personally, I save them for a while, then
| sell them all at once.

|/Two seasons after you get married, you or your wife will turn up pregnant.
| About a week later, you'll be presented with a scene where you have the
| option of choosing your child's gender through a 'goddess prayer'. You can
| also choose to let it be randomly determined.
|
| Then, one season after the pregnancy and three total seasons after the
| wedding ceremony, your child will be born. You'll name it and a cradle will
| spring up for it to sleep in.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Child Options
|
| While ToT preserves the one-child limit (didn't you know this game takes
| place in China?) of every Harvest Moon game except the original, there is
| an improvement: depending on who you marry, your child will look and act
| different.
|
| There are ten potential children: five personalities and appearances, each of
| which has a child in each gender. The five options, and the spouses that lead
| to that child, are:
|                     Husbands       Wives
| The "Model" Child : Gill, Jin      Anissa, Candace
| The "Happy" Child : Toby, Julius   Maya, Renee
| The "Fussy" Child : Chase, Calvin  Luna, Selena
| The "Hyper" Child : Luke           Kathy
| The "Artsy" Child : Owen           Phoebe
|
| Truth be told, though, the personality differences are only slight. You won't
| find yourself hating the Fussy child or anything like that.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Child Growth
|
| Your child will go through four stages, each lasting one season (they grow
| up so fast!). In one year they move from crawling, to walking, to talking,
| to finally their final stage: sentences and the ability to help you out on
| the farm.
|
| During the various stages, you'll have different ways of raising your
| affection level with your child. During the first stage (when the child just
| sits in the crib), you can cuddle or play with the child using the rattle
| (purchased from the General Store, equip it to receive the 'rattle' option).
| During the second stage (crawling), you can talk to your child, but you can't
| play or give gifts. At the third stage (walking), the child will begin to
| stroll around your farm (unaccompanied, you horrible parent), but still will
| only respond with one-word responses and won't accept gifts.
|
| It's at the fourth and final stage that the child becomes a viable character.
| At this stage - starting a year after the child's birth - the child will walk
| and talk, accept gifts, and go on a walk with you. The child will also offer
| to help on the farm: he or she can collect eggs, milk cows, water crops or
| harvest crops. You can find what they collect in the shipping bin, and you'll
| receive a report on their progress at 4:00PM.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Child Events
|
| Once you have a child, there are a few possible events that can be witnessed.
|
| From time to time, one scene is that your child will turn up in the morning
| with a fever. You and your spouse will take care of him or her the whole day,
| and you won't be able to do any chores for the day. Other than that, it isn't
| a big deal. This can happen at any stage of child growth.
|
| There is also a scene in the library (top floor of Town Hall) that can be
| witnessed once your child and some of the villagers' kids have been born and
| grown to their final stages. Enter the library and you may receive a scene of
| the children participating in a little school class.
|
| The final child-related event is the Journey Rucksack event, which triggers a
| New Game+. This can only be completed once your child is fully grown and
| you've completed the goddess quest. For more information on the goddess
| quest, read the next section. For more information on the event itself,
| search for { NG+ } without the spaces.

|/Every Harvest Moon game has a main 'plotline' - in Tree of Tranquility, there
| once was a Harvest Goddess that protected the island and ensured its
| prosperity, but she has disappeared and her tree - the goddess tree - has
| died. Your job is to revive the tree, which will reawaken the goddess.
|
| How do you revive this tree? You have to create five rainbows, then plant the
| tree. But this isn't just a quest in and of itself - creating the rainbows
| makes new villagers come to the island and grants access to new areas you
| couldn't reach before.
|
| Some people choose to hold off on the rainbows until they've married and have
| a successful farm: I highly discourage this. Doing the rainbows quickly makes
| the game far more enjoyable - it opens new areas for better fishing and
| mining, it triggers new arrivals on the island (several of which are marriage
| candidates), it leads to the opening of a new shop for a bigger rucksack, and
| it lets you meet a dozen new wild animals that could become your pet. In
| short, make the rainbows.
|
| But how do you do this? Well, there are three broad steps in the goddess
| quest. First of all, you have to obtain the goddess quilt. Then, you have to
| create the 5 goddess rainbows. Lastly, you have to find and plant the goddess
| seedling, to revive the goddess tree and reawaken the Harvest Goddess and
| meet her at the goddess spring. Goddess goddess goddess goddess goddess.
| She's terribly fond of naming things after herself.
|
| So how do you do these three broad tasks? Well, read on. The three sections
| below will tell you how to proceed through the quest.
|
| The steps below are strictly a list of what you need to do: they isn't meant
| to be a complete plot summary.

| /
|/Before you can begin creating rainbows, you must complete the Quilt event in
| order to obtain the quilt. The harvest sprites won't respond to you until you
| have the quilt. What are harvest sprites? We'll get to that. Firs, the quilt.
|
| Essentially, a legendary quilt has been in the Mayor's family for
| generations, but half of it has gone missing. The quilt explains what to do
| when the Harvest Goddess disappears. In order to begin creating rainbows, you
| must find the quilt.
|
| There are three parts to this event. I'm going to give each their own mini-
| section, for the sake of utter overkill. If you're reading this from the
| beginning, one tip: start collecting wood and stone lumber early. You're
| going to need it.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Learn of the Quilt
|
| To start, you have to get the Mayor to tell you about the quilt in the first
| place. In order to trigger this event, you must ship 1000G worth of goods.
| These can be herbs, crops, gems, metals, fish or anything else. This should
| only take a few days.
|
| Once you've shipped 1000G worth of items, the Mayor will come by and tell
| you about the quilt, and other details about the goddess and the island.
| He'll come by on a sunny day, and if you have trouble getting the scene, try
| entering and exiting your house around 8:00AM.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| The First Half of the Quilt
|
| Once the Mayor has told you about the quilt, you then need to ship another
| 1000G worth of items. Again, these can be anything, and it shouldn't take too
| long - one trip to the mine to gather mushrooms will be far more than you
| need.
|
| When this happens, he will come to your house again and trigger another
| scene. In the scene that follows, he will give you the left half of the
| quilt, and he'll tell you that the right half has been unfortunately lost.
| He mentions that the harvest sprites may have taken it, but does not know
| where. He does give you one lead though: the last person to hear the harvest
| sprites speak, his son Gill.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| The Second Half of the Quilt
|
| So, it's time to talk to Gill. You'll quickly find Gill is a stick in the
| mud, though, because he inexplicably won't give you more information until
| you've upgraded your house. That's a harder task than the previous two steps,
| as upgrading your house requires 3000G, 18 pieces of wood lumber and 16
| pieces of stone lumber.
|
| The money shouldn't be too much of an issue, as you had to already earn a
| total of 2000G just for the first two steps. The lumber, however, can be more
| difficult. Make sure you've obtained the ax from Luke and the hammer from
| Owen (meet both in Ganache Mine District around their respective houses),
| then head to Praline Forest or the various farm plots and start busting
| stones and chopping trees. With your limited stamina, you likely won't be
| able to do much per day, but if you work on it every day and use the hot
| spring, you should be able to gather the necessary lumber in a week's time.
|
| After that, go to the Carpenter's Shop, talk to Dale over the counter and ask
| him to upgrade your house. As soon as you order the upgrade, you can go talk
| to Gill again and obtain more information. After he talks, he'll tell you to
| go talk to Dale. So, go talk to Dale.
|
| After talking to Dale, he will direct you to go talk to the Mayor. Go talk to
| the the Mayor while he's in his house and tell him you're interested in
| fixing the clock tower. He will give you a key, where the other half of the
| quilt is hidden.
|
| The clock tower is in Waffle Town Square. To open it, pull out the key as if
| it's a tool and use it on the clock tower door. You'll enter the tower and
| receive the other half of the quilt.
|
| Congratulations! You've finished the first part of the goddess quest. Now for
| the main part: the five rainbows.

|/Once you have both quilt halves, you can move on to the rainbow portion of
| the quest. If you try to do the following steps before you have the quilt,
| the harvest sprites won't respond.
|
| Here's the gist of it. Around the island there are five big trees with little
| flowers under them. The flowers represent the five harvest sprites. When you
| water the flower at the base of one of the trees (walk up to it and press A
| with the watering can equipped), the harvest sprite will pop up. After a
| dialog, he'll give you a recipe, which you can check on the informational
| screens (hold down C, scroll to Story Items). Obtain the five items in the
| recipe, then return to the tree and water the flower again with those items
| in your rucksack to complete the rainbow.
|
| Once you've created a rainbow, a few things happen. Most importantly, you can
| walk across the new rainbow to a new area of the island. Secondly, the
| villagers around the island will comment on how awesome it is to have a
| rainbow. And for one rainbow (Daren's), new villagers will start arriving on

|
| In general, it's best to try to be gathering ingredients throughout the
| game and set them aside when you obtain them. Many of the ingredients are
| only available in certain seasons, so you won't be able to wake up one day
| and decide to grab the items for the next rainbow real quick. For this
| purpose, there is a reference list of all the goddess tree items in the
| References section (search for { GIT } without the spaces) that can be used
| as a checklist.
|
| Below are descriptions for each of the five rainbows. They are listed in the
| logical order of completion: certain rainbows must precede others because of
| certain ingredients or tree locations, while others precede others only
| because the ingredients become available sooner. The seasons in which the
| ingredients can be found are listed to the right.
|
| Items marked with an asterisk (*) can be purchased from Souffle Farm during
| the designated season. Items marked with a plus (+) can be purchased from
| Brownie Ranch.

|/Well, you've created the final rainbow, climbed it, and? Nothing. Dead-end in
| the clouds. What do you do next? Talk to Edge to find out.
|
| Climb to the absolute peak of Mt. Gelato beyond Edge's tree. Once there,
| you'll again pass out. You might want to get that checked out. If you have
| trouble triggering this scene, try instead visiting the goddess spring.
|
| Anyway, to make a long story short, your new objective is to find the
| Seedling of Hope. Check the Wal-Mart garden center first - if they have one
| there, go ahead and pick it up. If not, you'll have to do this the hard way.
|
| Rather than listing the details in overly detailed paragraph-style, I'm just
| going to list the steps you need to complete. Do these in this order to
| progress to the next stage of the goddess plot.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FTS} _
| Finding the Seedlings
|
| Several plot-relevant scenes follow in these steps, but I'm only providing
| the things you, personally, need to do to avoid displaying too many spoilers.
|
|  - Talk to Jin at his office (not at his home, his path to work, or your home
|    if you've married him).
|
|  - Climb the lighthouse steps (far left side of Waffle Town) and examine the
|    lighthouse door to find a possible Seedling of Hope.
|
|  - Take the seedling to Goddess Spring area and plant it.
|
|  - Talk to Calvin - he'll mention the mural of the Seedling in the Ganache
|    Mine, on the 10th floor.
|
|  - Dig down to the 10th level of Ganache Mine. Calvin will meet you there
|    with another possible Seedling of Hope.
|
|  - Back to the Goddess Spring, plant the seedling.
|
|  - Find Gill at the Town Hall. He'll direct you to talk to his father, the
|    Mayor.
|
|  - Talk to the Mayor at Sundae Inn (speaking to him anywhere else will not
|    trigger the event) at night. He appears there on Monday, Wednesday and
|    Saturday. Ask him about the seedling, then press him about it.
|
|  - Ask each of the next questions in the order they're displayed.
|
|  - Find the key in the church altar - you can only obtain it while no one
|    is in the church (wait outside if someone is inside until everyone
|    leaves).
|
|  - Take the key to the Mayor house when he is NOT there (wait outside his
|    house until he leaves if necessary). Pull out the key as if it's a tool
|    and use it on the back door from his kitchen to gain access to his garden.
|
|  - Take the possible Seedling of Hope back to the Goddess Spring and plant
|    it.
|
|  - After planting it, return to the Goddess Spring for one more scene to
|    trigger the next part of the quest.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {GTT} _
| Growing the Tree
|
| Once you've planted the Seedling of Hope found in the Mayor's garden, there
| is still one more thing you have to do: grow the tree. The tree will begin as
| a simple seedling - your goal is to raise it into a fully-grown thriving
| tree.
|
| The tree's growth is based on your friendships with the villagers - you
| didn't realize you were so important, did you? In order to grow the Goddess
| Tree big and strong, you have to accumulate a total of 50 hearts with all
| the villagers. That should be incredibly easy, considering that there are 50
| villagers, and by this point you've likely been playing the game for at least
| a game year. Chances are you've already accumulated those 50 hearts. Even the
| wild animals are included in this heart count. I have no idea why this number
| is so low.
|
| Some nights from this point on, you'll witness a little scene after you go to
| sleep of the tree growing (though if you don't yet have 50 hearts total, the
| scenes may be a few nights apart each). After you witness 4 scenes, the tree
| will be fully grown.
|
| When it's grown, you'll receive a note from Edge alerting you that the
| Goddess Tree has now grown full and strong, and is now the destination of his
| rainbow. Go back to Mt. Gelato and climb his rainbow to find yourself atop
| the Goddess Tree. Alternatively, go to the goddess spring if the scene fails
| to trigger.
|
| After a scene, the game will be over. Well, kind of. After the scene, you'll
| have the chance to save your file. Save it and re-load it, and it'll be the
| same day. You won't need to climb the final rainbow again - that's done with,
| but now you can play forever.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {NG+} _
| Your Child's Journey (New Game+)
|
| But wait, there's more! If you call right now, we'll throw in a whole new
| island, absolutely free!
|
| After the Tree has sprouted, there is one last series of events that can take
| place, if you're married and have a child older than one year. If you don't
| yet have these, these events will be possible once you attain them.
|
| Some time after your child's first birthday when you speak to them, they will
| ask you if you believe in "fairies". Regardless of your response, your child
| will declare that they saw them, and ask again if you believe in them. If you
| respond that you do, a few nights later your child will have a dream of a
| woman asking for help. Sound familiar?
|
| A few days later, the Mayor will come by and explain the Journey Rucksack.
| Climb back to the Goddess Spring to learn about the rucksack, as well as a
| crisis facing another island.
|
| The goddess will give you a list of ingredients needed to create the Journey
| Rucksack the Mayor spoke of. The ingredients are:
|  - Rare Metal, obtained from digging up Rare Ore in the mine and having it
|    refined by Mira.
|  - Black Pearl, found on beaches.
|  - Shining Flax Yarn, made from Shining Flax grown on your farm that is then
|    placed in the Yarn Maker.
|  - Shining Wool Yarn, made from Shining Wool sheared from a sheep on your
|    farm and placed in the Yarn Maker.
|
| Similar to the rainbow recipes, you simply need to re-enter the Goddess
| Spring area with the ingredients in your rucksack to trigger the Journey
| Rucksack's creation.
|
| To initiate the child's journey, simply present the Journey Rucksack to the
| child. A series of events will take place, but there's nothing special you
| need to do.
|
| When the events are done, your child will be whisked away to Waffle Town 2.0,
| where everything is exactly the same as it was before. Your child will look
| identical to you (unless it's the opposite gender), and the game will be
| essentially exactly the same as any other new game, with one exception: your
| child will inherit your money and makers, as well as some of your tool skill
| level (the tools will all be at Level 3). Beyond that, the game is exactly as
| new. You won't keep your animals or items, though, so it's best to sell those
| before you start the New Game+.
|
| Be careful starting a New Game+. If you do, you won't be able to return to
| your original save file unless you saved the New Game+ into a different slot.
|
| That's it! That's the last thing there is to unlock in the entire game.
| You've now completed Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility, as well as it can be
| completed at least.

|/Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility is not a game that truly needs a
| walkthrough. The entire joy of the game is being able to play however you
| want.
|
| However, some people have difficulty getting started and knowing what to do
| from the beginning, so for this it can be useful to follow a walkthrough. So,
| I've provided these.
|
| Please, do not try to follow these walkthroughs to the letter. They're
| intended as guidelines, and if you try to perfectly replicate what I did in
| my game, you'll fail (weather and other game-to-game variances will prevent
| any identical matching between games) and you won't enjoy the game nearly as
| much.
|
| There are five walkthroughs in this section:
|  - Island Arrival Walkthrough - a walkthrough for the tutorial portion of the
|    game, through the 4th of Spring, with some tips on getting started after
|    that.
|  - Getting Started Walkthrough - a walkthrough for the first two months of
|    the game, including tips on what the best crops are to plant, where you
|    can meet new villagers, and how to make the first rainbow.
|  - Goddess Tree Walkthrough - more of a calendar, really, of the critical
|    dates and times to remember to grab certain ingredients for the goddess
|    tree quest.
|  - Season-by-Season Walkthrough - general, high-level tips and suggestions
|    for each season of the game through the first year and a half.
|  - Personal Game Log - a log of how I, personally, spent every day of the
|    first year of my game - useful if you have trouble determining what to
|    spend your time or money on.

| In The Beginning...
|
| As the game opens up, you'll quickly receive a short back-story for how
| your character arrived on the island. It seems that there's a farm on the
| island, and you're interested in taking over and revitalizing it! So you
| travel on a ship to the island; the ship captain will ask you questions
| on the way.
|
| The way you answer the questions early in the game will, obviously,
| determine various characteristics about your character, such as your name
| and birthday. For your birthday, you won't be able to choose the specific
| date for your birthday, but rather a season and a relative time during that
| season. This is to ensure you don't pick the same birthday as another
| villager, or one on a festival day. The date of your birthday is relatively
| unimportant, though I like to pick a birthday that meets two criteria:
| later in the year, so that I've made some friends by the time the birthday
| rolls around, and during a time period where there are not festivals, to
| break up the monotony a bit. In Tree of Tranquility, your friendships don't
| impact your birthday celebration, so the first criteria is rather
| irrelevant. If you're like me and want your birthday to fall in a period of
| eventlessness, I recommend mid-summer and early fall. Both these result
| in birthdays during two-week no-festival times.
|
| Interestingly enough, in Tree of Tranquility you also get to choose some
| favorite dishes, similar to how the villagers each have their own
| preferences. What you choose doesn't make too much of a difference to the
| rest of the game, however.

| Disaster Strikes!
|
| What? A typhoon in a simple farming game? It must be a clever plot device!
| Just enough of a storm to knock you out and make you dream an
| unrealistically vivid dream - well, isn't that just incredibly convenient.
| It seems either you're schizophrenic or there's a Harvest Goddess
| somewhere that needs your help. You have two choices: check into a mental
| hospital to see about those voices in your head, or try to help her out.
| And it seems the clinic on the island is tragically ill-equipped to deal
| with your particular brand of mental illness, so let's try to help her,
| shall we?
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Welcome to Your New Home
|
| When you awaken, you'll be on the island, and your character will finally
| respond to that weird nub thing on the nunchuk. Oh, right, it's called
| a joystick. Run downstairs (to the right, back down the hall, then back to
| the left - it's a bit confusing) and a scene will play out - at the end of
| it, you'll be in control of your character. Walk out the front door by
| pressing A.
|
| The mayor will waddle up to you as soon as you walk out to welcome you.
| You'll get three options: "Hamilton, you rock!", "Yes, Please!" and "Leave
| Me Alone!". Resist the urge to choose the third, but either of the first two
| will result in a tour of the town. You'll receive other questions through
| this introduction sequence, and most correspond to learning new information.
| The choices should be pretty obvious as to what to choose to learn more.
|
| After that, you'll have an option to roam freely and greet villagers. Time
| won't pass during this, so take your time and explore the area. Some areas
| will be accompanied by little greeting screens. Try to enter all the
| buildings around town to experience as many greeting sequences as possible.
| Many villagers will give you books about different subjects as well.
|
| In order to progress, you must visit Town Hall, so make sure you go by there.
| You'll meet Elli and Kathy. You can also meet Gill, Barbara, Simon, Ozzie,
| Jin, Irene and three wild animals - the white cat, the white puppy and the
| brown puppy. After meeting everyone you want to meet, talk to Mayor Hamilton
| to end the day.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Earning Your Way
|
| The next day, head downstairs and out the door again. You'll get the chance
| to improve your friendship with the Mayor by knowing his name. You'll be
| taken on a tour of the areas surrounding the town, like the church and Maple
| Lake.
|
| After the tour, you'll meet the people at Souffle Farm. They're a very
| depressing (and borderline rude) bunch. And apparently, you've been roped
| into learning the ropes from them (get it, roped? Ropes? I crack myself up).
| So spend a couple days here learning the basics of farming.
|
| On Day 1 (Spring 2, Spring 1 was your travel day), you'll be weeding,
| and watering. For both, remember to use the Z button to line yourself up to
| a square - it makes it a lot easier. You'll earn the watering can for
| weeding, just in time to use it yourself. Just follow the directions given
| to you by Craig and you'll be fine. After you're done, the Mayor won't let
| you leave, so go back inside, where you'll meet Anissa, sparkling and all.
| Talk to Ruth to end the day.
|
| On Day 2 (Spring 3), go downstairs and talk to Ruth, then go outside. You'll
| notice time still isn't moving. Maybe the Mayor should check that out. Go
| talk to Craig, who'll have you picking strawberries. Pick them and take them
| to the shipping bin to complete that chore for the day. When you're done, go
| talk to Ruth.
|
| She'll want you to deliver strawberries to some of the villagers in the area.
| There are three strawberries to give to each of three villagers: Gill, the
| Mayor's Son; Jin, the doctor; and Yolanda, the cook at Sundae Inn. And what
| do ya know, time's moving again - better hurry! Finding them can be somewhat
| hard since the camera is pointing away from where they all are, so it's time
| to learn how to use the Tracker. Go to your menu screens (hold down C), go
| to the Heart and scroll down the list of villagers you've met. One at a time,
| select a villager (either Gill, Yolanda or Jin). Back on the main screen, a
| compass will appear pointing to where that character is. Follow the compass
| to find your target!
|
| After you finish, you'll be transported back to the farm where Ruth will send
| you to bed, where the voices in your head will appear again and speak to you
| incoherently. You might want to have a doctor look at that.
|
| On Day 3 (Spring 4), you'll wake up and mention your dream to the Mayor.
| After a minor freakout by him, he'll mention that your free house is complete
| and ready for you to move in.
|
| You'll be asked to choose your land plot. If you're like me, you're wondering
| how they built your house without knowing where to put it. But anyway, you
| have three choices: the Seaside Plot, the Town Plot and the Hilltop Plot. The
| choice is up to you - if you want to read some of the pros and cons to each,
| check out the Initial Location section (search for < INL > without the
| spaces).

| Free At Last
|
| As you leave, you're paid for how well you did your work - usually somewhere
| between 200G and 380G. You're also given a bag of potato seeds to help you
| get started.
|
| Walk outside and notice that time's stopped again. Try to leave Souffle Farm
| and Craig stops you to say so-long, and to give you your first hoe. Don't
| read that sentence too deeply.
|
| The Mayor will finally take you to your new house. Name your farm, then get
| started! Remember, time stops when you're in your house, so don't worry about
| taking your time here - but keep an eye on the clock when you're outside.
|
| The sections below will detail the different options you have, but there's no
| longer any specific tasks you must complete each day. Harvest Moon is one
| of the most open-ended games around - so have fun and make your own life.
| The only things you might want to keep handy are some of the calendars listed
| in the Calendars section - search for < CAL > without the spaces.
|
| Before you go though, just a few general tips on the first few days:
|
|  - Get the fishing rod. It's free - just go by On the Hook to pick it up
|    from Toby. It can be hard to find him - try walking down the stairs from
|    On the Hook to the beach.
|
|  - Start the Scavenger Hunt. There are five items that can be found lying
|    around the island in little chests with notes attached, and each sells for
|    a fair amount, especially early in the game. The first item can be found
|    at the beach, with a note directing you to the next one. If you want to
|    see where they all are, see the Scavenger Hunt section (search for { SCH }
|    without the spaces).
|
|  - Make the first rainbow soon. It'll likely take a fair amount of your early
|    money to get the first home extension, the Oven and the ingredients, but
|    it's worth it: when you make the first rainbow, almost a dozen villagers
|    move to the village the following season. But in order to make the first
|    rainbow, you need an apple, which can only be gotten at the Spring market
|    before late Summer: so if you don't make it in first Spring, those
|    villagers won't arrive until Fall. For information on how to do this, see
|    the Reawakening the Goddess section (search for < GOD > without the
|    spaces), or the Goddess Tree walkthrough (search for [ GTC ] without the
|    spaces), or the Getting Started walkthrough (search for [ GTW ] without
|    the spaces).
|
|  - Start gathering materials soon. That means pounding boulders and chopping
|    stumps and even trees. This is necessary for the first home extension,
|    which in turn is necessary for the rainbow as mentioned above. A good plan
|    is just to use your excess stamina at the end of each day to swing the axe
|    at the nearest tree or hammer at the nearest boulder a few times.
|
|  - Don't be a workaholic. Chances are you'll enjoy the social part of the
|    game far more than the farming and ranching, so make a little time each
|    day to go around and talk to people.
|
| That's about it - have fun! To get back to the basic information on the
| island, search from the beginning for [ ILO ] without the spaces. If you want
| further guidance with the game in the form of a step-by-step guide to the
| first month or two, the next walkthrough is for you.

|/I'm not really a believer of walkthroughs for Harvest Moon games. To me, the
| entire pleasure of a Harvest Moon game is that you can choose to play however
| you want, and that there are dozens of different play styles.
|
| However, popular demand asked for a walkthrough, especially to help people
| get their game started and established. So, under my own terms, I've written
| one.
|
| The below walkthrough is for the first couple of months, to help you go from
| a basic farm to a thriving ranch with crops and animals. It focuses mostly on
| farm growth and the goddess quest, although there are some notes about the
| social scene as well.
|
| Note that it's impossible to follow this walkthrough perfectly: too many
| things vary from game to game. But it should serve as a good guideline for
| you in getting started, and it still leaves plenty of room for you to do your
| own thing. Just don't worry too much if you're forced to depart from it
| because of weather, personal finances or bad luck.
|
|  4 : The first day, and you only have half of a day. Go ahead and plant your
|    : potato seeds and water them. You won't have enough stamina to pull all
|    : the weeds, till the soil, plant the seeds and water them, so choose a
|    : strip of 6 squares that doesn't have many weeds. You may want to till
|    : a couple extra squares on each side, just to see where there's the best
|    : mix of soil qualities.
|    :
|    : After that, the only other thing you can really do on Day 1 -
|    : considering your lack of stamina and lack of tools - is to go around
|    : meeting people. So let's do that. Don't worry if you can't meet all
|    : these people on the first day, in time you'll meet everyone.
|    :
|    : Personally, the first person I go to meet is Mira. She's located at the
|    : Graveyard near the Church on a sunny day. The graveyard is hard to find
|    : since the camera never really shows it - go to the church and run to the
|    : left. On the map, it's that brown square of land to the left of the
|    : church and Jin's house. Mira is responsible for appraising ores and
|    : wonderfuls, one of which you'll be getting soon - so meeting her early
|    : lets you begin mining effectively right away.
|    :
|    : It's probably getting late, but if you have time, run up to the Ganache
|    : Mine District (north from the Maple Lake Area) and drop by the
|    : Blacksmith's Shop and the Carpenter's Shop. You'll meet a few new people
|    : here, and Chloe at the Blacksmith's Shop will give you a Red Wonderful.
|    : Don't worry if you don't have time, though - this can be done tomorrow.
|    :
|    : By now, it's definitely past 6:00PM (or else you're incredible at this
|    : game and have no business using a walkthrough!), so most people are
|    : home and most shops are closed. Spend the rest of the day wandering
|    : around and exploring to get a feel for the island - and if you see
|    : anything lying on the ground, pick it up and ship it! When you're done
|    : wandering around, head home and go to bed. You'll see your daily
|    : earnings sheet, one of Tree of Tranquility's best new features, but
|    : sadly you earned nothing today. Soon, though!
|    :
|    : In this walkthrough, I'm going to include stats from my own game, so you
|    : can follow along with exactly how I made the money I did. These numbers
|    : can't be emulated identically: even if you plant the same things I do
|    : and mine all the same days I do, there will still be a lot of variation
|    : from game to game. But there shouldn't be major (more than a few hundred
|    : Gold) discrepancies if you try to mimic me exactly. But don't mimic me
|    : exactly - if you're going to do that, why bother playing yourself?

|    :         Others :     0G
|    : New Amount :   320G
|
|  5 : Today we're going to learn a new concept. The village is much more
|    : lively during the day, so why not wait and work at night? That gives you
|    : more time to go around visiting people and meeting new villagers.
|    :
|    : Start off today by heading up to the Ganache Mine District and meeting
|    : anyone you didn't meet yesterday. In addition to actually going in the
|    : stores, you'll meet Owen next to the Blacksmith's Shop and Luke and Bo
|    : in Praline Forest. Owen will give you a hammer, and Luke will give you
|    : an axe.
|    :
|    : At the Blacksmith's, if you didn't go there yesterday, Chloe will give
|    : you a Red Wonderful. For more informations on Wonderfuls, see the
|    : section dedicated to them (search for { OAW } without the spaces for
|    : information, or { WON } without the spaces for a list). Have it refined
|    : by Mira to discover it's actually only glass - what a disappointment.
|    :
|    : Personally at this point, I go by Souffle Farm and buy a bag of
|    : breadfruit seeds to plant on my far as well. They're fairly expensive
|    : for this stage (210G), but they yield a large profit over time. Whether
|    : you want to or not is up to you, but you may want to go by and see
|    : Anissa as long as you're up in the area anyway.
|    :
|    : Next, let's go get that last tool (well, besides the sickle, but that's
|    : not accessible yet). Head through Waffle Town down to the beach. Walk up
|    : and down the stairs at On The Hook to trigger Toby's greeting scene.
|    : Eventually, he'll give you the fishing rod.
|    :
|    : On your way back to your farm, remember to talk to everyone you meet.
|    : Just talking to people makes them like you more, and it doesn't take
|    : much time at all.
|    :
|    : Now let's get those daily chores done. Head back to your farm and water
|    : your crops, and plant the new ones if you purchased any. A good strategy
|    : for watering your crops efficiently is to just start at one end of the
|    : row and walk across them, watering. That way, you don't waste valuable
|    : time turning back and forth and confirming your square every step of the
|    : way.
|    :
|    : If you did choose to plant more seeds, you'll likely get tired after
|    : tilling, planting and watering half of your crops. That's a perfect
|    : excuse to go find the hot spring for the first time. Try not to get too
|    : tired before you go, though, since you'll end up having to walk the
|    : entire way instead of run.
|    :
|    : The hot spring can be hard to find the first time. To find it, go all
|    : the way east to the river before running north. Then, follow the path
|    : past the river, past the waterfall, up behind the waterfall and around
|    : to the back.
|    :
|    : By the end of all this, it should be the end of the day, so head to bed.
|    :
|    : Before Bed :   110G
|    :     Profit :    30G
|    :        Produce :     0G

|    :        Fishing :     0G
|    :         Others :     0G
|    : New Amount :  140G
|
|  6 : I've held your hand through the first couple days, so now it's time for
|    : you to start making some decisions of your own. Every day you'll need
|    : to water your plants and such, but beyond that, what you do is up to
|    : you. I'll provide you some guidance, but every day I'll say "and spend
|    : the rest of your time however you want".
|    :
|    : What this means is that there are several tasks you can expend your
|    : extra time and money doing. You can mine, fish, meet people, work at
|    : part-time jobs, chop lumber and break stones. Most of these are
|    : necessary: in order to kick-start the main plotline of reawakening the
|    : goddess, you'll need to ship 2000G. By the end of the spring (if you
|    : plan to start the quest in spring), you'll also need some lumber, some
|    : stone, some fish, and a good bit of money to buy the home upgrade and
|    : the oven. You probably don't want to keep fish in your rucksack for
|    : two weeks, but there's good news - in this game, cooked dishes, crops
|    : and many other things can actually be put in the toolbox. So, use that
|    : for storage until you have time to invest in a refrigerator or chest of
|    : drawers.
|    :
|    : In the meantime, you'll also want to start to break rocks, chop lumber,
|    : and possibly work some part-time jobs or do some mining to bring in
|    : some extra income. I'd recommend mining, since that counts towards the
|    : amount of money needed to start the goddess quests. And collecting
|    : mushrooms and toadstools in the mine requires no stamina if you use the
|    : holes to descend, so it's an effective method.
|    :
|    : On days where there's nothing specific you need to be taking care of,
|    : I'll let you know what I choose to do, just for your information.
|    :
|    : On the 6th, there's largely nothing in particular that needs to be done,
|    : but there is something you might want to go ahead and get started on:
|    : the Scavenger Hunt mini-quest. Hidden around the island are five items
|    : in treasure chests just waiting for you to find them. They must be found
|    : in order, and most of them sell for a notable amount. The first one can
|    : be found over by the west side of the island. Head all the way to the
|    : lighthouse, then head north across the beach to the stone wall - it'll
|    : be sitting there, holding a Lapis Lazuli.
|    :
|    : The note inside says the next gift is on the east side of the Maple Lake
|    : area, so let's head there next. It's a bit hard to describe where in the
|    : Maple Lake District the next item is, but it's in a corner formed by a
|    : couple logs about halfway down. Just follow all along the east side of
|    : the District and you won't miss it.
|    :
|    : As far as those first two items go, you can give them as gifts, but
|    : you're probably best off selling them - they sell for a fair amount,
|    : especially this early in the game.
|    :
|    : Unfortunately, the next item can't be found until you unlock Brownie
|    : Ranch - for this walkthrough, I won't assume you do, but it's actually
|    : not that hard, especially if you go mining a couple times. If you do,
|    : the main thing you gain is an earlier introduction to Renee, Cain,
|    : Hanna, and Gray, and an earlier reunion with Kathy.
|    :
|    : What to do next? Well, it'd be awful nice to have that root out of the
|    : way to make accessing the mine area easier, wouldn't it? That's a pretty
|    : simple little mini-quest - get it started just by going to the root and
|    : examining it. Gill will show up and ramble - now head to the Carpenter's
|    : Shop.
|    :
|    : Once there, you'll automatically talk to Dale, then be transported back
|    : to the tree root area - just in time to see the root get taken care of.
|    : There, now isn't it nice to have that out of the way?
|    :
|    : With that done, you're on your own for the day. Personally, I go to the
|    : mines and descend via the holes, collecting the mushrooms, toadstools
|    : and occasional pontata roots. If you decide to do the same, you may want
|    : to leave a few of your tools at your house so that if you happen to get
|    : deep enough, you can collect some ores and wonderfuls. Remember you
|    : still need to water your crops, though.
|    :
|    : When you're done, head to bed, and check out your tally for the day.
|    : 1000G for just picking up a couple items lying around? Not a bad haul!
|    :
|    : Before Bed :   140G
|    :     Profit :  1720G
|    :        Produce :     0G
|    :        Animals :   720G (Shining Flax Yarn)
|    :         Mining :   200G (Lapis Lazuli)
|    :        Fishing :     0G
|    :         Others :   800G (mushrooms and toadstools)
|    : New Amount :  1860G
|
|  7 : If all goes according to plan (that is, if you've sold 1000G worth of
|    : goods - if you haven't, this won't happen yet, but it will when you sell
|    : 1000G worth of stuff total), the Mayor will be waiting for you outside
|    : today with the first scene for getting the Quilt to start creating the
|    : first rainbow. He'll take you to his house and explain to you the legend
|    : of the rainbows and the sprites and the Harvest Goddess and all that
|    : kind of stuff. Ask him all the available questions to learn more
|    : information.
|    :
|    : What he won't tell you is that to continue the quest, you need to sell
|    : another 1000G worth of stuff - a good reason to pursue money-making
|    : first among the available activities.
|    :
|    : After the event, no time will have passed and you're back at your farm.
|    : Today is mostly your own to do what you want to do - I recommend mining
|    : or fishing so you can get to the next earnings plateau and continue the
|    : quest. Remember, money made in part-time jobs does not appear to count
|    : towards the 1000G you need to make.
|    :
|    : While you're out today, take a look at Praline Forest and see if any
|    : forageables have sprouted. Typically there will now be an herb or two.
|    : Remember also that you'll need an herb for the Good Herb Fish recipe.
|    : It's not necessary to get it now, but be on the look out for it before
|    : too long - it'd be an aggravating ingredient to be missing.
|    :
|    : It's also pretty notable that it doesn't take all that much effort to
|    : get down to the bottom of Ganache Mine - it can easily be done in about
|    : 10 game-hours. So if you're itching for that Power Berry, head on down
|    : there and grab some mushrooms and toadstools on your way.
|    :
|    : When you're done, head to bed. Did you get a dream from the Harvest
|    : Goddess? I did! That's just another sign that you're progressing through
|    : the plot. If you didn't get it, don't worry - just keep selling stuff
|    : and you will in time.
|    :
|    : Before Bed :  1860G
|    :     Profit :  1090G
|    :        Produce :     0G
|    :        Animals :     0G
|    :         Mining :    70G (unrefined ores)
|    :        Fishing :     0G
|    :         Others :  1020G (mushrooms and toadstools)
|    : New Amount :  2950G
|
|  8 : Now, theoretically you could get your second Mayoral visit today if
|    : you've sold 2000G worth of goods. However, if you're like me in my game,
|    : you found that it was raining today. That's what makes writing a
|    : day-by-day walkthrough for a Harvest Moon game so difficult - way too
|    : much is randomly determined.
|    :
|    : So instead, let's look at things you should and shouldn't do on rainy
|    : days. They can be good days to visit villagers, since they'll tend to
|    : be at their home locations rather than out wandering, making them easier
|    : to find. It's also a good day to go mining and fishing, since some
|    : people say fishing is actually better in the rain.
|    :
|    : It's NOT a good day to stand outside bashing boulders or chopping logs,
|    : though. You'll get fatigued faster and get sick. You don't want that.
|    :
|    : Like other recent days, it's up to you what you choose to do. I,
|    : personally, chose today to buy the oven I know I'll need for the first
|    : goddess recipe, then I went fishing for the first time. I also went
|    : around visiting a couple villagers and checking price lists to make sure
|    : this guide is accurate, but you don't need to do that.
|    :
|    : If you went mining yesterday like I did, you'll also want to make time
|    : for a trip up to the Blacksmith's to get your wonderfuls and ores
|    : appraised.

|  9 : Raining again? Sheesh. Well, for me, this day is spent combing the beach
|    : to see if any forageables have turned up, the dropping by Souffle Farm
|    : to check my price lists are correct. You, naturally, can spend the day
|    : however you want. I'd recommend mining or fishing if you haven't yet
|    : reached that 2000G level, and those are always good for leveling your
|    : hammer and fishing rod.
|    :
|    : The Mayor will be waiting for you outside today, but don't get too
|    : excited - it's about the Flower Festival the next day.
|    :
|    : Incidentally, today is Toby's birthday. He's a fan of any type of fish,
|    : so drop by and give him one for a double boost in affection. Be careful
|    : if you're a guy and want to marry Renee, though -  Toby's your rival,
|    : and he'll sweep her away if he gets to three hearts. Toby's at his house
|    : in Maple Lake for most of today - remember to use the tracker if you
|    : need it.
|    :
|    : Also, in case you hadn't noticed, your potatoes are harvestable today!
|    : I sold all of them, though you could give one to Hamilton, personally,
|    : then went and bought some more seeds from Souffle Farm: turnip seeds
|    : this time.

| 10 : Flower Festival day! As the little notification under your HUD in the
|    : top left tells you. Yes, I called it a HUD.
|    :
|    : Luckily, that forces the day to be sunny, which means if you're me, you
|    : can finally get the first half of that quilt. He'll automatically give
|    : you the quilt half after a scene. Good thing, too, 'cause I was running
|    : out of things to talk about.
|    :
|    : If you haven't yet received the quilt half, that's ok - I'm going to
|    : keep writing about stuff when I come across it, but you can easily do
|    : these things at any time.
|    :
|    : The next thing you'll need to do after getting the left half is to have
|    : your home upgraded to Level 2. That might take some time, as it requires
|    : 3000G, 18 pieces of wood lumber and 16 pieces of stone lumber, so get
|    : on collecting those materials! You also need to talk to Gill, but that
|    : can be done any time.
|    :
|    : Like the Mayor said, the Flower Festival is today, so let's drop by
|    : there. Booths will open and close throughout the day, so you might want
|    : to hang around to make sure you see everyone. If you're there before 9AM
|    : you'll witness it starting.
|    :
|    : There are a couple different booths, but only one item of note. Ruth
|    : sells herb seeds and herbs, neither of which are that useful to you
|    : right now - they'll be useful to later in the game for dyes, though. And
|    : you could buy a herb to make the Good Herb Fish, but there should be an
|    : herb growing wildly when you need one.
|    :
|    : Anissa's booth sells most flowers, flower seeds and perfumes, none of
|    : which are very important. But, she is also the only place you can buy
|    : fertilizer this early in the game. It's the best kind of fertilizer, too
|    : - Happy Fertilizer, which raises every square to top-quality and lasts
|    : for three seasons. You can stock up if you so desire - it can help a
|    : good bit. Personally, I didn't buy any, but that's because I'm
|    : researching growth times of the different crops.
|    :
|    : Make sure to be there at 10AM to experience the introduction of a new
|    : character: Selena, a bachelorette, is introduced with an interesting
|    : dance sequence. She's a bit brash, demanding that you buy her a flower
|    : (which increases her heart level but doesn't actually cost you money)
|    : and occasionally telling you not to waste her time. But if she's the one
|    : you want, go for it!
|    :
|    : After the festival, take care of your chores, then spend some time
|    : pounding boulders and chopping wood until your stamina's out.

|
| 11 : Onward and upwards. There's nothing much going on in the village for a
|    : few days, so your primary focus will be on your crops and continuing to
|    : progress through the goddess quilt quest. For that, you're trying to
|    : gather your lumber and stone, sell 2000G, and raise enough money to buy
|    : the oven and second home upgrade.
|    :
|    : Beyond that, I don't have much to say for a couple days. Spend your days
|    : as you will, water your crops, harvest them, sell them. Spend the rest
|    : of your time fishing or mining until you have that 2000G sold and the
|    : first half of the quilt. After you have the quilt half, you can spend
|    : your time working part-time jobs instead, since the actual sales figure
|    : won't matter as much.
|    :
|    : I'll keep you posted on what I choose to do with my days, naturally. On
|    : the 11th, I started off doing my chores, then discovered that my
|    : watering can leveled up, so I tilled another strip of land, bought some
|    : strawberry seeds and planted them. By then, my stamina was exhausted,
|    : so I went to the hot spring, got rejuvenated, then spent the rest of the
|    : day in the mine. Before going, though, I deposited everything in my tool
|    : box except the hammer so I'd have more room for ores and wonderfuls
|    : I actually went in the mine for ores and wonderfuls this time instead of
|    : just mushrooms and toadstools, but that's more because I'm hoping to
|    : level my hammer to level 3 soon to open up Brownie Ranch and access my
|    : choice of spouse, Kathy.
|    :
|    : In your mine trips, it's a good idea to remember that ores can be
|    : somewhat hard to come by when you actually need them. So if you come
|    : across any real ores (not junk ores), it's best to have them appraised,
|    : then let them sit in your toolbox until you need them. You can start
|    : selling them after you have six of each.
|    :
|    : Now, in that mine trip I mentioned, I was running low on stamina when
|    : I was about to eat a mushroom - but I decided to bash one more rock
|    : instead. Bad idea. It had red gas, lowered my stamina, and I passed out.
|    : But hey, it's gotta happen once per game, right?
|    :
|    : When you get sick, nothing really bad happens. You just wake up at your
|    : house the next day - still holding your tool, at that. Not much of a
|    : deterrent.

|
| 12 : Another open day for you - if you don't have the left quilt half by now,
|    : you really need to get on that. Ideally, you'd have your house upgraded
|    : by around the 15th or 16th, so be gathering those materials still too.
|    :
|    : Raining again for me, but the good news is the first of my breadfruit
|    : came in. Only two, since only two were in the best level of soil. Those
|    : get shipped along with the mushrooms and toadstools gathered the day
|    : before.
|    :
|    : In my game, it's raining again, so after getting my wonderfuls refined
|    : by Mira and shipping them (and finding that Ramsey somehow knew about my
|    : passing out the previous day - I love this game sometimes), I personally
|    : head to Praline Forest to pound some boulders and cut some wood. Yes,
|    : even though it's raining. I have the money for the upgrade (well, I will
|    : after shipping today's merchandise), so the only thing holding me back
|    : is the stone and wood. Bashing boulders in Praline Forest got tiring
|    : pretty fast, so a trip to the hot spring was in order. Then it was
|    : chopping away at the tree on my own farm for a while. After that, I
|    : opted for a quick trip to the bar to visit some people. While I was
|    : there, I figured I'd give the part-time job for a whirl. Some rather
|    : random cutscenes, 6 hours and 123G later, I was done and it was time for
|    : bed.

|
| 13 : Another day, another day. Again, not much required, though hopefully you
|    : have the left half of the quilt by now and are well on your way to
|    : having your home upgraded. Let's plan on that tomorrow, although if
|    : you're behind on that, it's ok for now.
|    :
|    : Spend the day doing whatever you need to do, be it making money, selling
|    : products or obtaining materials. If you've got plenty of money, the left
|    : half of the quilt and the materials, you could go ahead and upgrade your
|    : house and continue the quest.
|    :
|    : For me, a single other breadfruit sprouts today somehow - not really
|    : sure how, since it's a Perfect breadfruit and therefore must be in
|    : at least Decent soil - perhaps I missed a day of watering.
|    :
|    : I've already got my materials for the upgrade, but I spent part of my
|    : day pounding boulders on the other farm plots as well. It's a good head
|    : start for the next home upgrades, and it levels the hammer for hopefully
|    : opening Brownie Ranch soon.
|    :
|    : After that, a rather productive trip to the mine - dug up a diamond to
|    : be appraised by Mira tomorrow.

|
| 14 : Spring 14th - sounds like a good day to get your house upgraded. But
|    : wouldn't you know it, they're closed on Saturdays. Darn. It'll have to
|    : wait until tomorrow - good news for those of you who haven't gotten the
|    : materials yet.
|    :
|    : If you've been following my game perfectly, you'll also notice that your
|    : breadfruit planted in poor soil have sprouted, as well as your turnips
|    : planted in decent soil. Sell them off and head to the beach for a quick
|    : foraging fest.
|    :
|    : Find anything? Hopefully you found a Common Seashell - it's an
|    : ingredient in the first goddess recipe. If you found one, head home and
|    : put it in your toolbox for storage. If not, you might want to start
|    : checking back every couple days - they'll last from day to day, but they
|    : won't stay put forever, and you're going to need one.
|    :
|    : From there, the day's your own: do what you need to do. If you don't
|    : mind carrying it around for a few days until everything else is
|    : gathered, you could go ahead and hook some fish to make the Good Herb
|    : Fish part of the recipe - but remember you'll have to carry it with you
|    : since there's no refrigerator in your house yet. Other than that, the
|    : only other things you're going to need are bought at the Spring Market,
|    : so do whatever you want to do - socialize, work part-time jobs, it's
|    : your decision.
|    :
|    : Personally, after getting my wonderfuls appraised, I head over to
|    : Praline Forest and do some more boulder bashing. Still hoping to level
|    : that hammer up, though Level 3 is much harder than Level 2.
|    :
|    : After that, my stamina's shot, so it's to the hot spring, then to chores
|    : back at the farm. And since the hot spring restores far more stamina
|    : than you consume by just watering plants, I spend some time smashing the
|    : boulders down at the beach plot.

|
| 15 : Like I said, this sounds like a good day to have your house upgraded.
|    : Again, if you're not quite ready, it's ok - but hurry and get ready soon
|    : or else you run the risk of running out of time. Remember, you'll need
|    : 3000G, 18 lumber and 16 stone.
|    :
|    : If you're following my game exactly, you'll find that a couple more
|    : turnips have sprouted. Not only that, but you now have an empty strip
|    : of land. We'll take care of that while we're out.
|    :
|    : Head up to the Carpenter's Shop, though you'll probably get there a good
|    : while before it opens. You can pass the time bashing some boulders or
|    : chopping some trees - hey, you'll need the stone and lumber eventually.
|    :
|    : Talk to Dale from across the counter. In case you haven't noticed, you
|    : always talk to a person across the counter to purchase things from them,
|    : and you go around the counter if you want to just converse with them
|    : socially.
|    :
|    : Choose Build, then Build or Upgrade, then choose the plot you chose.
|    : It takes two days for the upgrade, but you don't need to wait to
|    : progress the plot.
|    :
|    : But before we do that, if you're like me and have another empty row for
|    : seeds, head over to Souffle Farm and pick some up. Personally, I get
|    : cabbage seeds, to preserve my focus on variety. Now, let's hunt down
|    : Gill (if your house is being upgraded - if not, just remember to do it
|    : another day, and make a note of the information below).
|    :
|    : Gill is in different places depending on the time of day, so use the
|    : tracker to find him. Personally, I found him at the church. Talk to him
|    : to trigger the next part of the quest.
|    :
|    : Choose the right answer ("revitalize the island", of course). Then,
|    : after a short scene, ask Gill a couple questions. It seems your new
|    : directive is to talk to Dale. But today it's probably getting a bit
|    : late, so we can save that for tomorrow.
|    :
|    : Do your chores for the day, then expend the rest of your time and energy
|    : doing whatever you want - for me, it's pounding any boulders I can find,
|    : as always. Not much longer, though, that bar couldn't possibly be any
|    : closer to Level 3.

|
| 16 : You may have noticed that I have a lot of money, but haven't been
|    : spending it as much as I could. This is true, and it's true for a
|    : reason: one major use of my money will be setting up next season's
|    : field. I plan to keep a 6x6 field of crops next season, so it'll be good
|    : to save my money for seeds, as well as the goddess ingredients that are
|    : for sale later in the season. After that's taken care of, I'll look at
|    : what I can spend my excess money on.
|    :
|    : There's another reason to horde money too: at the end of the season is
|    : the Animal Festival, where some items can be purchased to upgrade your
|    : rucksack capacity sooner. Ideally, you'll have 8220G when that festival
|    : rolls around - so it's a good idea to save for now.
|    :
|    : For me, it's raining today, which brings up a good point: fishing tends
|    : to be a bit easier on a rainy day, so start looking for a rainy day to
|    : dedicate to a fishing trip, especially once you have your house
|    : upgraded. It will only be a matter of time until you have the quilt and
|    : can create that first rainbow, so it won't be long until you need that
|    : Good Herb Fish.
|    :
|    : More breadfruit for me today, and you too if you planted some when I
|    : did. Like we said, we'll be talking to Dale today, so head up to the
|    : Ganache Mine District. You'll be there early again, so why not bash some
|    : more boulders and chop some more trees? I, personally, finally leveled
|    : my hammer to Level 3 today, so I'll be opening Brownie Ranch on the next
|    : sunny day (not that it has to be sunny, just personal preference). I
|    : won't assume you do though - I'm just doing that to get access to Kathy
|    : sooner.
|    :
|    : When the Carpenter's Shop opens, talk to Dale from behind the counter.
|    : A short scene will ensue, and after you ask the questions, you'll find
|    : that your next destination is with the Mayor.
|    :
|    : Use the tracker to find him, though he's probably in his house. Talk to
|    : him to initiate a scene in which you have three options - I recommend
|    : choosing "Can I fix it?", though you're free to choose yourself. He'll
|    : then give you the key to the clock tower.
|    :
|    : It should still be early, so let's have a look at that clock tower.
|    : Examine the bottom of it, then equip the key as if it's a tool. A scene
|    : will initiate, and you'll find the other half of the quilt. Well done!
|    :
|    : With that done, you'll receive the overview of the majority of the game
|    : plotline: give the sprites the ingredients to make special cakes, which
|    : in turn make rainbows for you to cross over to different parts of the
|    : island. Ok, so the note didn't say all that, but that's what the task
|    : is.
|    :
|    : Let's go ahead and have a look at that first tree, just to get a feel
|    : for it. It's right by the clock tower in Town Square. Pull out your
|    : watering can and use it near it to awaken a sleeping sprite, who is very
|    : aggravated at you for waking him with such cold water. You jerk.
|    :
|    : He'll brighten up quickly, though. After a scene, you'll get three
|    : choices: you can choose any of them for some humorous responses, but you
|    : can't progress until you choose the right one. After that, he'll explain
|    : the rainbows to you and give you the first recipe. You won't see it
|    : automatically, but you can check it on your menu screens under story
|    : items: it consists of a Grilled Yam, a Carp, a Good Herb Fish, a Common
|    : Seashell and an Apple. You've probably heard me blathering about these
|    : earlier in this walkthrough, but fortunately even if you haven't gotten
|    : any, you still have time before the end of Spring.
|    :
|    : The earliest you'll be able to get the rainbow, though, is Spring 23rd.
|    : Two items are sold on Spring 22nd: the Apple and the Grilled Yam.
|    : Besides those two, the other three can be obtained any time. The Common
|    : Seashell must be found on the beach, so keep looking for one if you
|    : haven't found it yet. The carp can be fished up any time, and remember
|    : that it can be kept in the toolbox until you need it.
|    :
|    : The Good Herb Fish is a bit more complicated. It requires four decent
|    : fish (combined value of at least 270G, though some say 300G) and an
|    : herb, and the oven. And like the carp, you can store it in the toolbox
|    : until you need it, and somehow it won't spoil. The same can be said for
|    : the Apple and Grilled Yam.
|    :
|    : Personally, I'll probably aim to obtain the carp and the Good Herb Fish
|    : around the 19th to the 21st - there's no real need to start on it
|    : earlier since it's relatively easy to make when you know what you're
|    : doing, and since the other ingredients are available starting Spring 22.
|    :
|    : So now that that's over with, what to do? It's up to you, do whatever
|    : you need to do. If you're not to the point of obtaining the other quilt
|    : half yet, do what you need to do to get there. Try to complete the stuff
|    : outlined in this day by the 20th, though, otherwise you'll be cutting it
|    : pretty close.
|    :
|    : Personally, I worked at the Inn for the rest of the day, then at the Bar
|    : that night. But that was more a function of being tired and wanting to
|    : go to bed (literally) than any game strategy. I also bought Selena a
|    : Very Berry Juice, but that's just because... well, why not? The Inn work
|    : brought in 88G for about 4 hours, and the subsequent time at the bar
|    : brought in 124G for 6 hours. Not great.
|    :
|    : If you choose to go by there, you'll also see Hamilton, and you can
|    : experience the little quilt wrap-up scene. You'll also get a dream the
|    : night you obtain the quilt. Hi, goddess.

| 17 : If you upgraded your house on the 15th, it's now ready! It's actually
|    : very spacious, and there's still three more levels to go! You'll have to
|    : set your furniture back out, though.
|    :
|    : Today, do whatever it is you need to do, be it making money or gathering
|    : materials. If you're like me and don't have anything in particular you
|    : need to be doing, you can pretty much do whatever you want, like mining,
|    : fishing or just meeting some villagers. Just remember when foraging that
|    : things in the ground stay there until you pick them, so you might want
|    : to leave an herb sitting in Praline Forest to be ready for when you want
|    : to make that Good Herb Fish.
|    :
|    : While we're on the subject, you may want to leave herbs growing
|    : indefinitely anyway. Their best use is in dying yarns that you get
|    : later, so if you leave them growing, they'll be ready. But that's a long
|    : way off, so there's no harm in picking a few now.
|    :
|    : If you're like me, you now have the hammer leveled to level 3 and can
|    : smash that dang boulder in front of Brownie Ranch. I did so and got to
|    : see the beautiful Kathy again. But like I said, I won't assume you were
|    : able to level your hammer that high before Spring 28, so I'll wait until
|    : then to talk about Brownie Ranch (so if you want to hear about it, read
|    : down there).
|    :
|    : For those of you without that much to do, I'm going to give you a little
|    : secret about one of the Power Berries. One of the Power Berries is the
|    : Hoe berry, obtained by tilling 1000 squares of soil. Sounds like a lot,
|    : but you can till already-tilled squares and they'll still count towards
|    : the total. So starting now, what you may want to do is expend your
|    : excess stamina each day tilling the same square (or squares, when your
|    : hoe levels up) of soil over and over. A couple months of that and the
|    : hoe berry will be yours in no time. Just remember to do your actual
|    : chores for the day first.
|    :
|    : Most of my day was spent exploring Brownie Ranch, so I don't have any
|    : tasks to detail for the day.

| 18 : Yet another rainy day for me. Thunderstorm, in fact, which means that
|    : I'm going to spend my day fishing for the next goddess recipe - both the
|    : carp and the Good Herb Fish.
|    :
|    : Oh, right, you. Again, the day's free to do whatever you want. If you
|    : have everything done... well, frankly, you don't need to be using this
|    : walkthrough anymore. This walkthrough is intended to guide you through
|    : the first couple months while teaching you the better ways to play the
|    : game, and if you're already ahead of the game, quit reading!
|    :
|    : We will get to other stuff to do soon, though, like building new
|    : buildings and buying important things at the General Store. All in due
|    : time - the first order of business is the first rainbow.
|    :
|    : So, the day's your own - do what you need to do. For fishing, I
|    : recommend midstream of the river - not the highest profit place to fish,
|    : but it has the carp that you need for the rainbow recipe. Plus, you're
|    : already halfway to the hot spring if you need it.
|    :
|    : On my fishing trip, I caught 4 rainbow trouts, 3 carps, 2 big-scaled
|    : redfins and a partridge in a... and a masu trout. My rainbow trout
|    : became my Good Herb Fish, my masu trout and redfin were sold for profit,
|    : and two of my carp were given to people at the bar (Kathy! and if I'd
|    : paid attention to my own guide, I would've known not to give one to
|    : Selena...).
|    :
|    : After that, I worked part-time at the inn, which might become a regular
|    : occurrence for me. Two hours, 41G. Still not great.

|    : Before Bed :  5036G

|
| 19 : Another day, and it's still not the Spring Market yet. This is why
|    : I'm not a fan of walkthroughs for Harvest Moon games - not knowing where
|    : you are right now, it's really hard to give recommendations.
|    :
|    : Like I said, you know what you need to be doing. With your extra time
|    : and stamina, you can spend some time chopping wood, pounding boulders or
|    : tilling extra squares of soil in efforts to get that hoe berry. But
|    : beyond that, what you do is up to you.
|    :
|    : Remember, the Spring Market is coming up, and that's when we can get the
|    : last couple goddess ingredients. So be ready with your Good Herb Fish,
|    : your Common Seashell and your Carp. Be on the lookout for Common
|    : Seashells, buy the oven and fish up the ingredients.
|    :
|    : Also, have you met Maya? No? Neither had I at this point, and it's
|    : absolutely crucial that you do so. She sells the Grilled Yam at the
|    : Spring Market, and if you don't meet her first, she won't show up. So,
|    : meet her!
|    :
|    : To meet Maya, just enter the Town Square area sometime after around 2PM,
|    : but before 6PM. Walk forward a little bit and you'll trigger her
|    : introduction scene. She's another eligible bachelorette, if the sparkles
|    : didn't tip you off. She'll also have a book for you, about cooking.
|    :
|    : If it's raining or you otherwise can't trigger the scene, it's ok - just
|    : make sure to trigger it by the 21st at the latest, or else she won't be
|    : at the Spring Market.
|    :
|    : I, personally, also took this opportunity to buy some cabbage seeds to
|    : plant to hopefully maximize the amount I sell before the end of the
|    : season. I'd like for Brownie Ranch to start selling fertilizer before
|    : the start of summer. Yes, I know, I should've bought some at the Flower
|    : Festival. I figured my field would have SOME good soil in it somewhere
|    : that I could test on, but no luck on that front.
|    :
|    : After planting the new cabbages, I personally headed to Sundae Bar.
|    : Part-time work was part of my goal, but also to give Kathy a cocktail
|    : purchased from the bar. That's part of what makes her so easy to woo -
|    : she's in the same place every night, and you can buy one of her favorite
|    : gifts in the same place that she's working.
|    :
|    : Part-time work earned me 126G for 6 hours - almost enough to offset that
|    : one blasted blueberry cocktail.
|    :
|    : Before Bed :  4767G
|    :     Profit :   140G
|    :         Produce :  140G

|    : New Amount :  4907G
|
| 20 : As has become customary, today is yours. We're getting near the Spring
|    : Market, so be looking for those fish and that Common Seashell. If you're
|    : all ready for that, you can spend your time gathering materials for your
|    : new buildings that we'll start looking at next month, or just mining
|    : and fishing for profit.
|    :
|    : Personally, I spend today fishing. Later in the game, it's going to be
|    : quite beneficial to have a leveled fishing rod. However, I'm not selling
|    : most of the fish I'm catching - I give them as gifts to the villagers.
|    : Up until now we've focused on the profit and plot parts of the game, but
|    : don't forget the social side. Just remember, no fish for Selena.
|    :
|    : You may also want to pursue mining, though not for profit, but for ores
|    : to upgrade your tools with. I grabbed an iron ore earlier in the month,
|    : and I also spent some time today getting my watering can upgraded from
|    : regular to Iron.
|    :
|    : That fishing trip I mentioned yielded only one fish, a Masu Trout, so my
|    : evening was spent heading to the bar, giving Maya the trout, buying
|    : blueberry cocktails for Selena and Kathy, and working part-time. You
|    : really don't need to know that, that's just so you know why my invoice
|    : at the end of this day works out the way it does.
|    :
|    : Before Bed :  3547G
|    :     Profit :   270G
|    :         Produce :  270G

|    : New Amount :  3817G
|
| 21 : The 21st already? Not really. We're almost to that Spring Market at
|    : last, so spend today making some last-minute preparations. Make sure you
|    : have the Common Seashell, fish up the ingredients for that Good Herb
|    : Fish, and catch a Carp. And if you're not to the point of being able to
|    : do that yet, that's ok - you'll have a couple days after the Spring
|    : Market to take care of things.
|    :
|    : For tomorrow at the Spring Market, you'll need 165G for the Grilled Yam
|    : and 225G for the Apple from Simon. If you don't have that much, fish
|    : today - you won't have time to get the gems you dig up appraised by Mira
|    : in time for the Market tomorrow.
|    :
|    : Again, if you have not yet met Maya, make absolute sure to do so today.
|    : Just enter Town Square sometime soon after 3PM. If you enter Waffle
|    : Town, Hamilton will also remind you of the Spring Market the following
|    : day.
|    :
|    : For me, it looks like the first of those Strawberries finally sprouted.
|    : Those definitely get shipped, while I simultaneously wish I'd grown some
|    : more. But that's for other reasons.
|    :
|    : For me, I actually spent the first half of the day being sociable and
|    : going around saying hi to people. May as well get those friendships up.
|    : That was followed by some tree-cutting to get ready for new buildings,
|    : then a trip to the bar to give Kathy her cocktail.

|    : Before Bed :  3637G
|    :     Profit :   790G

|    :          Others :   70G (found a piece of seaweed)
|    : New Amount :  4427G
|
| 22 : The Spring Market at last! It doesn't start until 9AM, so you can kill
|    : some time before heading over there. For me that means watering the
|    : plants first today.
|    :
|    : Head to the Market when it's open. Purchase the Grilled Yam from Maya
|    : and the Apple from Simon. There are also a few other rainbow ingredients
|    : sold here, but you won't be able to create another rainbow until Fall,
|    : and these ingredients will all be sold again at the Summer Market.
|    :
|    : After getting the Grilled Yam and the Apple, the day is yours. You might
|    : be able to create the rainbow today, though I never opt to - something
|    : about none of the villagers at the Market reacting makes it feel weird.
|    :
|    : After the Market, do what you want to do to get ready for the first
|    : rainbow.
|    :
|    : Before Bed :  4037G
|    :     Profit :   730G
|    :         Produce :  730G (some cabbages came in)

|    : New Amount :  4767G
|
| 23 : Finally, we should have all the ingredients necessary for that first
|    : rainbow. So let's get to it!
|    :
|    : Grab all the ingredients and put them in your rucksack, then make sure
|    : you have the watering can and head to the tree in Town Square. Water the
|    : flower to trigger the scene, complete with a weird little song and
|    : dance. And music that sounds like it's right out of Ocarina of Time.
|    :
|    : Once the scene is done, a rainbow will be created! This is probably the
|    : most crucial plot point in the entire game. With that created, several
|    : things happen:
|    :  - You can now access Toucan Island via the Ferry.
|    :  - You can now access West Gull Island over the rainbow.
|    :  - Villagers will start to arrive on the 1st and 15th of every month.
|    :  - The windmill at Brownie Ranch will begin to operate again.
|    :
|    : As you can see, you immediately have two new areas you can explore, so
|    : let's spend today doing that. Head to West Gull Island first by walking
|    : up the rainbow.
|    :
|    : The main reason for visiting West Gull Island now is that forageable
|    : items have been collecting on the island since the beginning of the
|    : game, so now there should be quite a few. Run around the perimeter of
|    : the island and collect them for shipping. You can also find various
|    : fruits around the trees on the island, like oranges, cherries, chestnuts
|    : and grapes. There's also a new wild animal friend: a squirrel.
|    :
|    : Unfortunately, to get to Toucan Island, you need to take the ferry,
|    : which requires talking to Pascal, which requires On The Hook to be open,
|    : which it isn't on the 23rd. So, we'll talk about it tomorrow.
|    :
|    : You'll notice that when you talk to the villagers, they all mention the
|    : rainbow you just created. Feels like you're actually having an impact,
|    : doesn't it?
|    :
|    : After that, I opted to do my chores, then go to the bar and give Kathy
|    : her cocktail, then work part-time - 127G for 5.5 hours, getting slightly
|    : better. Then, after expending the rest of my stamina hoeing the same
|    : three squares of soil over and over, it's bedtime.
|    :
|    : Before Bed :  4684G
|    :     Profit :  1000G
|    :         Produce :  840G (foraged fruits count as produce)

|    :         Fishing :    0G
|    :          Others :  160G (seashell and clam)
|    : New Amount :  5684G
|
| 24 : Today, let's check out that new area, Toucan Island. Head over to On The
|    : Hook and talk to Pascal. You'll receive an offer to head to Toucan
|    : Island, which you should accept. After a short scene, you'll find
|    : yourself on Toucan Island.
|    :
|    : Upon arrival, you'll meet Sue, who turns out to be Selena's mother, who
|    : will thrust you into the middle of a family squabble. After that, you're
|    : free to roam the island.
|    :
|    : The first thing you'll notice is that there's stuff all over the beach.
|    : Forageable items have been accumulating since the game began, so a lot
|    : is available. Gather it up for a nice one-day profit. Note that not
|    : everything that looks like it can be picked up can, though.
|    :
|    : Toucan Island is also home to a big white dog. Introduce yourself!
|    :
|    : While you're here, drop by Pineapple Inn and meet Samson too. He's the
|    : manager of the inn. He sells a rather random assortment of items: some
|    : rare seeds, some flower seeds, some cooked dishes, some fruit and a
|    : fancy seashell.
|    :
|    : When you're done here, you're free to do what you will. You might want
|    : to take this opportunity to do some island fishing - you can catch
|    : different fish from the island. It never rains here, either, so there's
|    : no sense in waiting for a rainy day to fish for better results. I,
|    : personally, caught a Swordfish and a Mahi-Mahi in two hours of fishing,
|    : a total of 1060G worth of fish. Expended almost all my stamina doing it,
|    : though, and had to buy a Southern Omelet just to have the stamina to
|    : take care of my chores when I got home.
|    :
|    : Remember that family squabble? Well, talking to Selena after talking to
|    : Sue bring
