I've beem longing to write a guide for the Harvest Moon series but somehow couldn't find the time to do so. Now, after seeing that there's a handheld version of it I've quickly searched gaming shops for the titles luckily one came up and in the second hand parts then again it's better than nothing. It's a japanese version so pity I had to pool up all those little Jap language that I've learned and try to fit em' in. Luckily everything in the game seemed to be a lot like the N64 and PS version so I really don't see any problems. Anyway, I've decided to just come up with a FAQs that is composed mostly of the basics like profits, gift lists and of course the game basics for those who had the game in japanese version. After a long long time of slumber... (patiently waiting for the eng. Version like most of us... Who said that the guide is 'so-called-dead'? Okay, so I just got the english version so expect a lot of updates coming up which'll be a great news to all. BTW, forgive me for not answering mails some were automatically were sent into my trash/bulk mail. Since I tightened it up a bit coz' of floods of mails coming anyhow I'll be replying to your mails now, that is if I find a some time off. Anyway I can't point out what's new. Just check it out. BTW, I wasn't able to receive some contributions contributed long before i got the english version anyhow if you wouldn't mind sending em all again. PEACE! ^_^ BTW, there's this new section. I've replaced the Item Bestiary Section for a while for a Random HM stuffs section where the contributor (you) can uh... take up some space off my guide and post a random HM stuff that isn't in my guide or that doesn't fall under any categories or simply the FAQ Author put it there out of laziness. hahahaha PEACE OUT :D Let's roll... *-*-*-*-*-*-* * Revisions * *-*-*-*-*-*-* June 14, 2003 (06.14.03) Version 1 ---------------------------------- - It's basically what the FAQs is composed of.

I'll be assuming that you have breifly understood the basic controls of Harvest Moon and has played even a little bit of the game. Backpack -------- All throughout the game(even if you'll gona go to sleep) you'll find yourself always carrying that little backpack. Hit the A and B Button to quickly ummon the Backpack screen or choose it from the menu window. The pack allows you to carry tools and items. You can only carry a certain number of items and tools depending on the size. Holding an Item cancels the use of a tool. You can increase the number of tools you can store in your backpack by buying a etter one. To switch froom tools simply open the tool screen and either manually bring it to the activated tool or just press the A button twice. Don't worry time doesn't expire doing this. Picking Up items ---------------- A basic skill that is very essential all through out the game. Simply face the item and press the A button to pick it up. This automatically makes the item on use or equipped so you should store them in your pack before you could throw them away. Equipping items gives you several choices: (1) Throw it Simply hit the A button to throw the equipped item away. This is rather frustrating if you're supposedly be shipping goods. Some items are not destructible in your farm. Meaning throwing them in the vicinity of the farm won't destroy them. Also, dropped goods are no longer available for selling or being picked up again. (2) Dumping Garbages This skill is related to cleaning up your farm. You could easily view this tutorial through the 'How' option on the menu screen. Here's the list of hose you cold find in your farm. Branch (A orange branch) Stone (A small stone) Weed (Green grass like plant) Lumber (A Vertical chopped log) Tools are needed to destroy them. Weeds for example could already be removed By simply pulling it out and throwing it away. Branches are destroyed by an Axe and it'll automatically add up to your number of lumbers. Lumber and Branches could easily be destroyed by throwing them at the green portion of your field or in your pond. Destroyed Lumbers and easily dealt much like stones, simply hitting them with a hammer destroyes them or could easily be thrown in your pond. (3) Gifts Items equipped could be handed as a gift. Simply go up to the certain person you wish to hand the item to and just talk to them like the usuall. You'll automatically hand it over to him/her. Some items that isn't available for selling is good for giving gifts. (4) Store in backpack Simply hitting the 'B' button automatically puts items on hold in your pack. This should always be done if you should be careful when shipping lots of goods. Mining Basics ------------- In Mineral Town, there's a total of 2 mines. If you're a begineer you better just mine when you'll be needing an ore for upgrade if not it may take a lot of fatigue from you also certain items are adviseable to mine successfully. 1st Mine - Cave near the Spring At the hot spring area there's a cave just near the Pond. It's pretty easy to spot and it's almost very open. It's not hard to spot as it's just standing there. Possible Ores are: kuzu(I don't know what it is either), Copper, Silver, Gold, Mythril, Orihalcon, Adamantite, Sage's Stone (Only after you've got all the Cursed Items), Goddess's Stone(9 in all) 2nd Mine - The Mine across the lake This mine is and can be located and accessible near the mountain path and during Winter only. It could be seen on the map as well. During winter the lake would be frozen hard enough for people to walk on it. It's in the middle of the lake. Possible Ores are: kuzu, Moonstone, Sandrose, Emerald, Ruby, Topaz, Amethyst, Diamond, Pink diamond, and four other kinds of ores I couldn't translate properly. and Kappa's Stone(9 in all) ** you can get a Power Berry in 29th layer underground. ** one thing more to go, the coin bag you dug contains a random amount of money. (1) Why Mine? Mining is another way of providing yourself extra income. Specially during the winter season where your income should decrease by 1/10. Mining requires two distinct tools. A hammer and a hoe. The hoe is needed to go deeper or find a way to go down the mine for better ores as the hammer is used to destroy rocks and possibly acquire ores from it as well. Basically, If you mine you get easy bucks and in an unlimited ways. Also this is a requirement for you to upgrade certain tools or make certain items. Sometimes you'll find money (10G.) as you mine. If you'll mine you should be ready as having a basket and perhaps medicine for restoring fatigue would help a lot. At an early stage mining is not actually a good way to earn money as some forage- able items gives you a lot more money rather than mining. (2) Mining Tips + Upgraded tools has no effect on the mine so they still cover a block per use. + To go deeper smash/plow as much blocks as you can and find a hole. You could go deeper into the mine from there. + The hole changes position everytime you enter them though the odds are like 15:85. + A better pack or a basket is a great idea to be earning big bucks from it. + Pull out of the mine if your face has turned blue. + Bring along a medicine if you'll be mining long and hard. (3) Ores are us! Here are the items you could find they're arranged already. Junk Ore 1G Money Bag 10G - instant money Copper Ore 15G Silver Ore 20G Gold Ore 25G Mystrile Ore 30G Orichalcum Ore 50G Adamantite Ore 50G Fishing Basics -------------- Fishing is another way of earning extra income though the process itself is tedious and frustrating at times luckily you won't be starting the game to fish ASAP. You'll be needing a fishing rod (Of Course!). You can acquire it on the beach. Fishing could be done on bodies of waters only excluding ponds, and hot springs. Simply equip the rod and cast them out. Wait for the rod to vibrate a little then pull it in. There are ways to easily pull out fishes just refer to the stuffs below. Fishes had a couple of purposes as they come in to the mineral town. Either sell them, give them as gifts, or cook them. (1) Why Fish? Fishing is fun. Is that not enough? Also, some people likes fish for present or simply they sell for a good price. They'll be ranging from 100 - 300G. according to their size. Fishing is a good way to burn time. (2) Fishing Tips + Throwing Trash(I think weeds/destoyable is one) around will decrease the chance of fishing out a fish, + A bin or a basket is where you should throw your trash. + There are fish in the hot spring. but you won't be able to catch it without Cursed Rod. (3) Fished Out?! Unused Can Boots Fish Bone Small Fish 50G. Medium Fish 120G. Large Fish 200G. Shipping: The bin and beyond! ----------------------------- The Shipping bin is the place where you sell your goods. Just throw them in and you'll notice it to budge a little. There are 3 shipping bins in total 1 situated in your farm and the other 2 are inside the chicken coop and the barn. There are an advanced way of shipping and it mainly makes your shipping job easier specially when you've almost filled your farm with crops. (1) The beyond! Do you know that time doesn't expire when you're inside a house? The shipping bin is located at the top left of the farm map but what about those you've planted away from it? There's the barn and the coop as an answer. You could use the bins in them to ship produce as well. Just pick as much crops and just hop in their hood and ship it there. This avoids spending 10 to 30 minutes of farming time by just shipping goods! This also helps if you're situated far from it. (2) Advance Shipping Equipment There are things that makes shipping easy as well. You've got the Horse's Saddle and a Basket. The Basket is perhaps the best tool you'll ever need. It could store 30 items in it and shipping them of just requires one shot. The basket is really expensive but with the help of constant farming you could avail of this early on. This'll cut your shipping time and focus more on harvesting. To use the basket simply treat it as a normal shipping bin. One's you've filled or ready to sell the things inside just pour it over the bin much like selling normal crops. Items thrown in the bin can never be retrieved. It's much like a blackhole >.< They could also be taken anywhere and be left there for you to come back the other day. Even storm or bad whether couldn't tore them apart! The horse's saddle is given when you've made your pony like you enough. The horse moves by itself and so using the horse as a bin should be just a second option since if you're not careful enough you can throw good money away as the horse suddenly move when you think he wouldn't. Taking Santa's place -------------------- This is merely like Gift Giving and Making friends. Sure it's just a waste of good money but do you know that even if you befriend a normal villager they'll be of some use? Like if you befriend the old lady that lives near the Mayor he could give a recipe for you. Some of which could give you cool farming tips or give you hints on what to give a girl. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* * Basic Farming Tools * *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* At the beginning of the game you'll find a hammer, an Ax, a Hoe, a sickle and a watering can inside your tool box. You can equip any of the three or depending on your backpack. The status screen shows the level of your tools and the like learning them gives you an advantage on your farming techniques. The status screen should look like the one below: - = Status Screen of Tools = - ___________ Legend (Tool Icon) [||||||||||||___________] [C] Copper Ore [C][S][G][M] [##%] [S] Silver Ore [G] Gold Or [M] Mystrile Ore The bar reoresents the experience bar. The color of it would change depending on the tool level. To see whether the tool is available for an upgrade check the ores available for it. The percentage reads this way. [Percentage] [Tool/Color/Type] [Cost for Upgrade+Req] 001% to 099% Default Tool [N/A] 100% to 199% Copper Tool 1000G. + Copper Ore 200% to 299% Silver Tool 2000G. + Silver Ore 300% to 399% Gold Tool 3000G. + Gold Ore 400% Mystrile Tool 5000G. + Mystrile Ore It's possible to jump unto a certain tool right away. Like skipping Copper then quickly upgrading it for a silver tool. It's economical that way though you should plan before hand when to upgrade certain tools. Like a sickle's job is still quite easy with out any upgrades. Or a Hammer should be updgraded to at least copper to smash rocks. All you have to do is to accumulate as much experience by constantly using the tools. How? read the next section. Anyway, the tools or the cost doesn't build up. It's rather fixed. (1) How to upgrade? All you need is to obtain a certain ore that is required for upgrade, ample amount of money and the tool itself!. Check the Mine section for the ores and for the basics. Also, tools needed a certain amount of experience for upgrade. This is done by using them on proper places. Like hoe would be earning it's experience by tilling soil or Hammers by breaking rocks. There's an advance way of earning experience though only applicable to Ax and Hammer as they're designed for it. Hoe, Sickle and Watering Can should be earning their experience from constant work as the two said tools could earn theirs by simply hitting Rocks or Large stones or stumps. At their level they won't be hurting it but they'll be gaining levels from it anyway. (2) Effect Chart ------------------------------------------------------------ |Tool Model Effect | ------------------------------------------------------------ Ax ------ Chop only branches/logs Copper Chop logs/6 hits to a tree stump Silver Chop logs/3 hits to a tree stump Gold Chop logs/2 hits to a tree stump Mystrile Chop logs/1 hit to a tree stump Hammer -------- You can only break small stones Copper 3 hits for large stone Silver 2 hits for large stone/5 hits for rocks Gold 1 hit for large stone/ 3 hits for rocks Mystrile 1 hit for large stone/ 2 hits for rocks Hoe ------ [Tills 1 tilled soil Copper Tills 2 x 1 tilled soil Silver Tills 3 x 1 tilled soil Gold Tills 4 x 1 tilled soil Mystrile Tills 6 x 1 tilled soil Sickle ------ Cuts 1 tilled soil Copper Cuts 1 x 3 tilled soil Silver Cuts 2 x 3 tilled soil Gold Cuts 3 x 3 tilled soil Mystrile Cuts 5 x 5 tilled soil Watering Can ------- Water 1 tilled soil Copper Water 1 x 3 tilled soil Silver Water 2 x 3 tilled soil Gold Water 3 x 3 tilled soil Mystrile Water 3 x 5 tilled soil To use their special function you should hold the B button and the hero would perform actions corresponding for each levels. The use of powerful tools doesn't take much energy now as they're more easy to use I presume. (3) Tools Breakdown AX The Ax is extremely important as it's the only way for you to get a lumber or to avail for an upgrade. The ax could clear tree stumps or branches. Upgraded Ax still needs to charge up before being able to use their function. HAMMER Hammer is another essential tool when it comes to mining. It's used to break down rocks to earn ores and to destroy stones big and small to clear the farm. It also is used to destroy destroyed lumbers. Also has a function of removing or untilling tilled soil. HOE Hoe is a very important farming tool as it's the only way for you to plant seeds. With an Upgraded Hoe it'll be easier for you to outline youe crops and see a better way of farming with it. Hoe is also used to mine so that makes it's functiontwice as important. SICKLE Death's weapon, it's has a long sharp blade on the end and could swipe bodies as it is used. Oh! Anyway, the sickle is just used to cut grass or weeds or to lessen an animal's heart level. The sickle is an alternative of getting fodders for your animals. WATERING CAN Watering Can is another very important tool. You'll find yourself using this tool 400% of the time! A better Watering Can means that you'll be cutting your farming time a bit. It's mainly use to water crops. Grass doesn't need them so you should not use them on them. It also needed to be filled with water first. Just take it near a body water or your pond to be exact and use it there. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-* * Crops Guide * *-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Crops are the most important thing that you need to learn when farming. They're the heart and sould of it. To plant crops, you have to buy one from the grocery store or the chinese looking peddlar. Seeds are packed into 9 and is used ones. You need to till block of soil to be able to plant them and watering them everyday is a must. (1)Using the land for your advantage Be sure that you've learned everything about the basic farmings as well as the tools needed. Strategically tilling soils depends on how much you would like to earn as well as the crops you're planting. The following patterns suggests the type of watering can you should be using to be able to maximize and utilize every single bit of everything. Legends: [:] - tilled soil where the seeds would go [X] - un-tilled soil/Blank space [:][:][:] [:][X][:] [:][:][:] This pattern is designed for a normal watering can and a copper watering can. Since you won't be able to reach the very center part ones the seeds began sprouting giving it a blank space at the center or reconsider the following: [:][X][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][X] [:][:][:] [X][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][X][:] [:][:][:] By following these or any of these patterns you'll be utilizing the space without leaving one part waiting. These patterns allows you to water every single one of your crops till you could get a silver watering can or a higher one. Since in a 9 tilled block you'll surely fail watering the center without a higher leveled watering can. To have a maximum harvest an 8 crop pattern is followed till you've already upgraded your can. I suggest going straight to Silver or any other higher watering can to not waste money at the same time max out the time. * - You can take on a 9 patterned block and just ask a harvest sprite to help you water/harvest it. However having a Silver or a higher watering can you can follow the 9 pattern block as seen here: [:][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][:] This applies to plants that grows once though you could enlist the harvest sprites to help you get to the center anytime. To scattter those seeds just walk on the center of the '3x3' block and use it there. Planting seeds that is off season in your farm will kill it. Let say you've planted a turnip during another season or they're in a process of growing and the next season comes. They'll then automatically wither. Though I think planting summer-type seeds on the last day of spring then they'll live the next day. TIPS: After you have sold over 100 turnip, potato and cucumber for each, you will get Strawberry Seed It goes the same way in summer and autumn. You will receive new seeds if you've sown 100 each of the 3 basic seeds that could be purchased in stores. (2)Profit Formula The profit from crops is calculated under this formula: The crops profit margin is being calculated by this formula: Legends: A = Number of crops sown B = Selling price of sown crops C = Cost of the bag of seeds D = Number of days for the crop to grow E = Times a crop could be harvested F = Profit per bag of seeds G = Days before regrowing Formula: Profit per bag of seeds = (A x B) - C It is then calculated for the number of times it could be harvested or the amount of profit you could gain for the entire season under these formula for non-regrowing crops: Times a crop could be harvested = (30 days - D) Total profit earned = (F x E) For the regrowing plants here's the deal: Profite per bag of seeds per season [(A x B) E ] - C Times a crop could be harvested = [(30 days - D) / G] --- As Quoted from an email (Sorry I forgot your email add) --- I was reading your FAQ and it was good until I got to the calculations... I noticed that you said the number of times a crop will grow in a season is equal to 30 days subtract the amount of days to grow... This is incorrect. The real formula should be: R = floor(30/D), for example R = floor(30/8) = floor(3.75) = 3 = R, you would be able to regrow the crop 3 times for a season. R: How many times the crop will grow in a season D: Days to grow This is of course assuming that you are able to buy the crop on the same day it was grown as well as growing the crop on the first day, of course the formula will be different if the crop is renewable... That formula would like this: R = floor([30-O]/D) + 1, for example R = floor([30-10]/8) + 1 = floor(20/8) + 1 = floor(2.5) + 1 = 2 + 1 = 3. O: Original amount of time to grow at first before it regrows.

Hi! I'm from <insert-name-of-website-owned> and could I feature this <insert-praise-here> in my site? A: 85% of the time I do allow people to get this guide on their site just for the reward of being honest and they've asked! I careless about the resentation or the looks/prestige/whatever your site is all about. Just ask and I'll see what we could do! 2. How come my computation differs from you? A: Send me your formula or calculation to attain it and tell me what I did wrong. I do accept criticism and anything that may help this guide look or be the best. 3. How come <insert-something> is different from mine? A: Perhaps I had typed it wrong or something. Just tell me about it and I'll credit you for it. 4. How come you don't answer back with your e-mails? A: I would usually try to finish answering/replying from mails everyday and since I've been getting 10 to 30 mails a week and coming from different games I suggest you label your mails with the game title so I could get back to you ASAP. I usually put new games as my priority. 5. If I contributed something what would I get? A: You'll recieve a thick paper back book about my life... kiddin' Seriously, you'll recieve a 110% credit for it and even have your name/e-mail add under the credit list. 6. I had a japanese version of the game. I wonder how do I buy/upgrade my stuffs? A: I've recieved a mail or two every now and then about certain topics. Basically you have to speak to the certain people in front of either their counter/table and they'll give you a selection. Talking to them simply brings up a conversation. 7. What are the golden logs bought at the Carpenter's good for? A: While it's used as fence, it won't decay as those wooden ones usually will after some time. But your luxurious behavior will make the townsfolk annoyed! Just make it your collection. 8: How do I get golden produce? A: Just make their affection level high enough(8 hearts at least) and if your animal is the Champion(it will have a crown on its head), it will produce G qualified products. BTW, if you keep those "G" animals out in the farm for 30 days, they will produce P products. 9: I need help, I have been giving Ann gifts all year up to Summer 17 and so far no change in the heart, can you help me out here? A: Perhaps you've been giving her something she don't like. To score big on Ann or on any girls you should give them presents that'll make their on- screen avatar blush and notice their answers to be a bit affectionate (erm... with an exception of one girl ^_^) *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- * Random HM Stuffs - *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- From: ELF <email@example.com> New recipes I've found (I suspect that they, like the birthdays, are mostly the same as in the PS version, but these are new[I think].

There's one in the Horse's water (the horse's house/stable thing),and the other I found mining (breaking rocks, did NOT dig it up with the hoe) in the Winter Mine. Thought I'd help you out --- Man Ling Li Zhang <email@example.com> Um.. as we all know that the sprites like items of their color, we give Simple things like the grass on the beach, or flowers. Honey is the best item that all the sprites like, especially yellow. You give him like 5 of these, he'd probably have 4 hearts. And when they work more, they get better. And if they have more hearts towards you, they tend to build up their working speed a lot faster. Like if one sprite has only 1 heart towards you, he learns very slow. The ones with a lot of hearts learn very fast. So give them a lot of items first, the tell them to work. That way, they build up their skills much faster. Here's something really strange... Sprites are willing to work the animals, but when I pick up a chicken and talk to them, they get scared. They are really scared of animals, even your dog. When you work them too much, and never talk to some, they talk very funny. They are afraid that you will make their houses dirty. And when they like you a lot, they say they know when you are going to arrive. When the sprites do the animal in the barn, you can see that he walks everywhere, on the wall, over the cow, on the feeding boxes. And when outside, they walk over ponds, through fences and houses. You can see that their movements are totally random, and don't have limits for where they cannot go, like us, the character. What's also funny is that when it, for example, milk the cow, it just spray magic. And the milk will automatically teleport from inside the cow to the shipping bin. Isn't it amazing? --- Dwaine Austin <firstname.lastname@example.org> I found an error in one of your sections.
