Details on growing

  • seeds can only be planted in dirt in your house or basement (create dirt by using a renovation wand on a tile)
  • use a seed/spore to plant it
  • use a bucket on well to create water, as with cooking, and use the water on the seed/plant to water it
  • most plants grow outdoors (ie a map in which the sun shines) but mushrooms, blood moss and ginseng must be grown underground (ie a basement)
  • plants need to be watered every ingame-day in order to grow - plants will die of not being watered in about 14 real-life days
  • plants will die of old age - usually around 30 real-life days but this varies
  • plants generally have a number of stages - seed->sprout->youngplant->mature plant->harvestable plant etc but this depends on the species
  • to harvest a plant, activate with a-dir
  • to destroy a plant, use a hoe on it
  • there is no olive press or mill yet so olives are for eating and wheat is for stockpiling
