  1. I was wondering if it's intended that you seem to sometimes get a critical success, if you'd call it that, when harvesting crops? I've had multiple instances (with 83.xx Farming), where I got 21 yield of easy crops like potato, or sugar beet. I'm uncertain whether or not those were fields that I never failed to tend at any growth stage, which is possible. It did strike me as odd though, because 21 is about double of a normal "good" harvest. Not complaining, but I'd rather not line in with the questionable moral of shutting up about something odd, and then winch when it gets "fixed" two years later
  2. One of the most commonly seen questions after 1.1 is: "What happened to farming?!" This is an attempt to answer that question and gather further information regarding farming and harvesting crops planted AFTER 1.1 came out. Please feel free to post responses with further info here, so we can compile it all in one place. To keep the thread clean, please post any complaints and/or suggestions regarding farming in this thread. With patch 1.1, farming now takes many more factors into account. As posted here, some of the factors that now affect your yield include: Quality of seeds sown initially Quality of rake used to tend fields Rarity of all materials involved Number of times the field has been tended Farming skillGiven all of these factors, you now have a chance to harvest a much larger yield than you could previously - but you also have a chance to harvest less, depending on all of the above. Basically, the new system gives more incentive and reward to those actively working to maintain their fields, while those who are only sowing and harvesting will obtain much less yield than previously. While we don't have much hard data yet regarding these changes, you will always get at least one crop back when harvesting. From the above post regarding the changes, a player "with only 1 Farming skill can potentially achieve a yield of up to 4 crops." This means that with proper care, a new player could potentially receive twice the number of crops back that he could harvest before! Note that any fields planted PRIOR to 1.1 will likely have very low harvests, as the server had no way to track all of the above prior to the change. Please wait to post data regarding your harvests until you have completed a full cycle of sowing, tending, and harvesting crops. Again, please keep complaints and suggestions to the other thread. Thanks!
