Farming… This still might be my favourite aspect of the game. It was an update I was so very excited for. It’s also one of the activities I do most in the game. Now that this has been out for a while, I would really love for this to be updated.
Many of us have our little work around a for making farming a little easier to tolerate. AoE tools like a low damage wooden axe. Work well for speeding up harvesting. Planting seeds using a mega fast brew, also makes it a little more tolerable. But like EVERYTHING in farming. It is… tolerable, at best.
First… I would like beacon permissions to be able to give permissions for farming. I don’t want to share ALL that I have, to let someone farm. But letting someone harvest a crop or two. I wouldn’t mind letting that happen.
2nd… forging for the tiller. How about AoE on a tiller, increased durability. Or even Glow. (Why was this never an option? It is a tool!!!)
3rd…skills, (harvesting Epic?) to make it easy to at least break even for farming things like goo. For many spending 5 points on that would be a no go. For me, it’s a dream skill.
4th…Plantable blocks shared with liquid. Why can you angle a deco gravel. Fill half with lava a grow a crop on it, but you can’t do the same for surface crops?
5th… harvesting with an AoE tool (axe) on lava/deco gravel blocks with lava on top is PAINFUL. Half the time you harvest 2 or 3 plants and miss entire rows. This does not happen when the lava is hidden under the deco gravel( precise slope on bottom of block to share lava). Can this be fixed?
6th… higher tier tools to assist with tilling/ harvesting. I would definitely pay the refined gems for a gem tiller…
7th… maybe some new crops. Or even harvestable drops!!! Plant an orb farm with mushrooms! Or an inky farm with nox!
Some of us have massive farms. For those of us who do, please make some changes to assist with this inspired, yet overly difficult part of the game.
