[Farming - Extended]



I was thinking about making this suggestion for a while now, and I have no idea how many have made it already, but it is all about farming. In the beginning of the start of early game, farming was introduced to the players to earn items and coin. But farming stays consistent for the the majority if not all of the game, plant the crops one by one and collect and water them individually. I've been farming recently and was wondering-

"Hold on, why exactly can't I just instant harvast all of these crops? It would be interesting if I was able to collect eggs with one click instead of a hundred."


It would be a really useful and neat mechanic to have a tool or a device that is unlocked once you reach a certain farming level, say around level 25 to 30, that will be unlocked to harvast all crops that are planted, all crop that are ready to be harvested that is. Not only would it make gathering the produce not as much of a chore, it could make it more useful in other ways, such as collecting produce from animals like chickens and sheep.


Say that someone has around 30 crop plots and want to harvest a specific crop like sunflowers, corn, dragon nip or beets, and need more of those resources over time than right then and there, it would take 90 clicks to plop them in the crop spots, water them and collect them when they are finished growing, it can be stressful on the hands and wrists to do so much clicking, especially if it is frequent, so I'd take it about 2 steps further. I'd have the device or tool or maybe not even a tool, just an option to hold down the left mouse button to plant a large amount of seeds, for example beet seeds, and they will be planted in the amount of crop plots available, then instead of watering each crop plot individually, clicking to water one plot should water the entire field or perhaps a row. And when all the seedlings are finished, the player could have an option to collect one or collect all the harvast available.


The same could be done for animals, and instead of clicking each individual animal like say a chicken or sheep or boars to feed them, clicking the holding pen would deposit the amount of feed needed to feed all of the animals in that pen (6 for sheep in a sturdy sheep pen, 4 for chicken in a chicken pen, etc). And to harvast all of the produce by these animals, the same option should be available to collect all ready materials to be harvasted. It makes it easier to farm up materials without it being too lengthy or boring. And of course, to do all of that instantly it would cost gems normally.


So that is just my suggestion, however lengthy it may be. But I'd say it would make the process of farming easier for players. I know there could be a problem with this sort of rundown of how I'd feel it could work.



[Suggestion Rundown]


Idea: Enhanced Farming


Suggestion: Improving Harvasting for all players


Key Points: Making planting, watering, feeding and harvasting less lengthy to do


Positives: Increased material gain


Negatives: Possible exploitation
