summerisfinished.NewspaperHouse=25materialstone,50small
lumber,5copperNothingoutrageous,butyou'resoongoingto be sick

of

how expensive material stone is. While you can make material stone
from rocks, you're also going to need rocks later on and thus you're
going to be buying most of your material stone from Rebecca. It's the
same with the copper, which can be found in the wilderness but not in
large enough quantities for you to build all of the stuff you need copper
for (IE upgrading your tools). Salon = 25 material stone, 50 small
lumber, 5 iron 1 bush = 5 small branches, 3 soil, 2 weed, 1 chamomile
There are some wierd requirements to make bushes (Weed? Really?).
Hang on to any weed and herb you pick up in the wilderness. You're
going to need chamomile now, and some of the other herbs will come
into play later. Also, they're useful as ingredients. Oh, and the soil can
be purchased (for the low low price of free) from the general store. 1
beehive = 8 small lumber and 5 honeycomb Like I said make sure you
saved some honeycombs from the spring or else you're going to have
to wait until fall to find them again. Once you build a beehive you have
to put a bee in it and then wait a week or so for it to make honey. It's
pretty simple. You're going to want a lot of beehives to speed this task
along, and you can increase production by putting beehives adjacent
to each other. As for the cow... all you need to do is keep the cow you
get from Neil alive. Anyways when you complete this TRP the villagers
will add a new area to Echo Village to make room for all of the other
houses they are going to have you build. ....................... Town
Restoration Plan 3 ....................... 1. Build a Pet Shop 2. Build a
Restaurant 3. Build and Inn 4. Build a Clinic 5. Ship 200,000G 6. Have
an adult sheep for sheep festival 7. Have 15 villagers for a MUSIC
FESTIVAL Four houses. That's a lot of work. And Shipping 200,000G is
no small feat either, but if you manage to accomplish that then you'll
probably also have the wealth and materials needed to build all of
those houses, and that in turn will bring in all of the people needed for
the music festival. No problem. You probably can get this done in fall or
winter, or at least in time for the music festival on spring 25. How
quickly you get it done really depends on how quickly you build up
your farm into being productive enough to generate 200,000G. The
first requirement you'll want to fulfill is getting a sheep, as WOOL is a
material for one of the buildings. Neil sells sheep for 7000G and the
earlier you buy one the better because you'll want to try to befriend it
to about 3 hearts or so before the SHEEP FESTIVAL on the 17th. Oh,
and make sure you forge some CLIPPERS too to get the wool. The pet
shop is actually a building called a cottage... sort of. cottage = 35 small
branches, 25 material stone, 40 lumber, 5 wool You know how to get
branches and mat stone, so I'll just say that lumber comes from
chopping down coniferous trees and for that you'll need to upgrade
your axe, which involves befriend IROHA to get the blueprints and then
probably some copper or iron. And WOOL comes from SHEEP, as I've

already mentioned. restaurant = 50 mat stone, 65 small lumber, 5


brick, 5 mint I told you to hold onto herbs, didn't I? Well mint can be
found any season before winter and hopefully you'll have this built
before that. Bricks are uncommon items that can be found in tree
stumps so be sure to hold onto them too. clinic = 65 mat stone, 15
small lumber, 40 lumber, 3 iron nothing unusual here. You're probably
going to have to buy all of that mat stone and iron though. inn = 20
small mat stone, 80 mat stone, 35 lumber, 5 silver, 10 glass stone
Silver and glass stone come from the mine (or from trading online) and
to unlock that you need to build the clinic and the pet shop and the
restaurant already so this should be the last building you build in this
TRP. Once you get access to the mine be sure to go there everyday and
mine as much as you can because it might take a while for the game to
give you 5 silver. ....................... Town Restoration Plan
4 ....................... 1. Build an Eastern Style House 2. Build a Magician's
House 3. And a Travel Agency 4. Build a Well for the town 5. Hold 3
Gardening Tours 6. Win the Intermediate level Crop Festival 7. Have 20
villagers for a Fireworks Festival 8. Ship 30 yams and 30 potatoes 9.
Ship 500,000G Completing TRP3 gets you a whole new screen of
farmland so you shouldn't have any trouble getting enough crops and
animals to generate massive profits and soar past that 500,000G
benchmark. Eastern Style House = 15 Material Stone, 80 Lumber, 20
Fodder, 1 Amethyst,
5 Wheat Not an especially difficult
list of materials. Amethyst shows up in the mine. Wheat however is
something you'll have to grow (and hopefully you've saved some
because it takes a whole freaking season to grow). Fantastical House
= 60 Material Stone, 60 Lumber, 10 Yarn Balls, 10 Glass
Stone, 5 Fluorite Yarn balls are the new item you'll have to get for this
house. You'll have to make them yourself in a MAKER SHED with a
CLOTH MAKER MACHINE and building all of that stuff from blueprints
may take a while. I hope you've been holding onto those bottles you've
been fishing out of the river. Travel Agency = 120 Material Stone, 10
Small Lumber, 10 Lumber, 10 Copper,
10 Brick Nothing
unusual here if you've been saving bricks. You'll probably have to buy
all of that material stone though. Well = 10 Material Stone, 5 Small
Lumber, 5 Iron, 5 Cotton Fabric Cotton fabric is another thing you'll
need a cloth maker machine for so make getting that maker shed of
yours up and running a priority. The Fireworks Festival is on Summer
25 so try your best to have all of the above houses built by then, as
that will get you enough villagers to unlock the festival. When it comes
to shipping potatoes, you probably already shipped 30 of them in your
first spring, and you should have no trouble shipping that many in your
second spring just for profit. The yams are a total stick in the works,
though. Yam seeds don't even become available for sale until your 2nd
Fall. If you're not one to go online and ask someone to trade you some
yam seeds before you're supposed to get them, then I guess you'll just

have to wait until 2nd Fall and then plant a whole bunch of them,
preferably in time to ship 30 of them before the FOLIAGE FESTIVAL on
Fall 25. Finally the last requirement I have to cover is the winning of
the crop festival. You'll have to get into the seed making game to go
that, and use that process to raise a crop with at least a three star
quality, just enough to win the Intermediate level of the
festival. ....................... Town Restoration Plan 5 ....................... 1.
Build a Bungalow 2. Build an Exotic Mansion 3. Build a Tailor's Shop 4.
Place a Watchtower in the village 5. And a table and a garden chair 6.
And a Lavish Fountain 7. Get 23 villagers for a Snow Festival 8. Have
an adult Yak 9. Win an Advanced Class Animal Festival 10. Ship
1,000,000G The last TRP is also the largest. It ought to keep you busy
for a long while. Maybe you'll even have the time to get married and
have a family. I don't know how you'd make it this far in the game
without getting 23 people in your village or building Yuri's house.
Bungalow = 35 mat stone, 60 black lumber, 15 glass stone, 3 jade, 5
amethyst Getting black lumber requires that you upgrade your axe
enough that you can process black branches, and you'll also want to
upgrade your hammer to get the rarer jewels. Exotic Mansion = 260
mat stone, 120 lumber, 10 gold, 6 adamantite, 5 mithril you're gonna
have to upgrade your hammer to get those rare minerals. Tailor Shop
= 35 mat stone, 60 lumber, 10 iron, 5 mint Wow, those are pretty light
requirements... so light that you probably should've built this building
two TRPs ago. 1 watchtower = 10 small mat stone, 10 mat stone, 10
black mat stone, 1 crystal Black material stone comes from black rocks
and you'll need a nice hammer for that. Same with getting the crystal.
1 table = 3 yarn ball, 3 cotton fabric, 2 glass stone, 7 iron 1 garden
chair = 1 yarn ball, 1 cotton, 1 iron 1 lavish fountain = 30 mat stone,
10 pearls, 5 crystals To get pearls you'll have to take a trip down to
Southern Island and hope for the best. I think the rest of the
requirements are self-explanatory. You get villagers by building houses,
you can buy a yak from Neil, you win the animal festival by having an
animal like you a lot and such, and you can earn 1,000,000G by
shipping a lot of stuff over the course of your career. ..................
****************** 3. VILLAGERS [300] ****************** ..................
Living in a virtual world all by yourself would be sort of lonely, but
living in a virtual world with a bunch of virtual people is sort of fun.
These are the villagers you'll be getting to know as you play HM:ANB.
Some of them will be interested in you if you play as a girl, others if
you play as a boy, and some won't be into you regardless of what you
do. Most of them work at SHOPS where you can buy things and thus
they give you access to different parts of the game. Villagers will like
you b
er if you talk to them, give them GIFTS (only one per day) and if you
participate in and do well at FESTIVALS. You don't have to buy them
stuff to make them like you, but it can sure speed that process up. Just

give gifts to people you want to sleep with and people who will give
you stuff in return, I say. Villagers have an unseen FRIENDSHIP POINT
SYSTEM that tracks how much they like you, and if you get enough
points it will trigger certain events and whatnot. The BACHELORS or
BACHELORETTES will have HEART METERS next to their dialogue that
give an approximate indication of how much they like you, and getting
to higher heart levels will unlock little HEART EVENT SCENES. This
game also allows you to DATE villagers by getting them up to blue or
green heart levels and giving them a COMMITMENT RING (or tricking
them into giving one to you). This allows you to see the higher-level
heart events and also do some other couple-y stuff on your birthdays,
but it also prevents you from dating anyone else... unless you choose
to BREAK UP with your lover. You'll have to go to extreme levels of
angering them and avoiding them to get the option to do that, though.
When you are dating someone and they have a big RED HEART (and
seen the heart events and upgraded your house and bought a bigger
bed and given them a ring) you can give that person a BLUE FEATHER
and get MARRIED. Awwwww. Also, you can only marry one person per
game file (and you only get two files). Try to talk to some of the
villagers everyday. The important ones, at least. I mean, I guess you
could waste your time befriending the harvest sprites or goddess, but
really, why bother? The villagers move around town according to their
own strange schedules so sometimes finding them can be a bother.
They'll usually be home eating between 12-2 and 6-8 but you can't
give them gifts then. Maybe you could try talking to them at work as
their work schedules are pretty regular. But the thing is, raising
friendship isn't too difficult if you just give it time (and this game can
go on a long time). In this section I will list all of the villagers and their
birthdays and how to unlock them (because remember the town is only
inhabited by ghosts when you arrive). I'll list some items they like to
receive as gifts but usually the items they like the most are expensive
and exotic and I want this guide to be more practical. The liked item
surrounded by *asterisks* is not the favorite or best item for gaining
friendship points... but it is an easy to get, cheap, common item that
they like and that you could potentially manage to give them every
day without trying very hard. ............... BACHELORS [301] ...............
You have to be playing as a lady to date these guys. .... NEIL .... The
guy that sells animals and the unskippable cutscene Unlocked: First
Spring 9 Birthday: Likes: *milk*, *egg* butter, cheese, yogurt, fish,
animal items, animals Dislikes: deserts, salads, soups, jams, minerals,
lot of things really Work: Neil's Animals, 10-6, Mon-Thu Neil already
lives in Echo when you arrive, but apparently he was out of town for
nine days. On the ninth day, though, he'll come to town to give you a
cow, which is really nice, but he'll make sure to tell you that it's from
Dunhill and that he doesn't give a damn whether you live or die. He's
downright hostile towards you for some reason. They may say that he

just feels more comfortable around animals than people. Whatever. If


you want to befriend or marry him it won't be too difficult because he
really likes items that animals make and you can get that stuff every
day easily enough. The worst thing about Neil is that when he opens
his store (Mon-Thur) at 10AM he'll spend 10 minutes of your time
making you watch the same damn scene every damn time. And he'll
make another scene when he closes. You will be sick of this
unnecessary cutscene long before the first spring is done. .....
ALLEN ..... The hairstylist Unlocked: Build the Salon (TRP2) Birthday:
Spring 16 Likes: butterflies, flowers, cloth, herb soup/pasta Dislikes:
lots of stuff Work: Allen's Salon, 10-6, Mon, Thur, Fri This good looking
cool guy runs the hair salon. He's kind of grumpy in the mornings and a
little arrogant and flippant. Well like I said he's really good looking so
he can get away with it. His prices are pretty steep when you first get
his shop, though. ... ROD ... The Pet Stop kid Unlocked: Build a
Cottage (TRP3) Birthday: Summer 28 Likes: *Bugs* *milk* Dislikes:
treats, bees, salads, desserts, snowballs Work: Rod's Pets, 10-6, MonThu O M G he makes Neil's frigging scene even longer I wish they
would both die. O M G the pets he sells make a scene of herding
animals out of the barn arggg why why why!?! ...... SOSEKI ...... The
layabout Unlocked: Build an Eastern-Style House (TRP4) Birthday:
Spring 24 Likes: cheese, bamboo, fish food, fish, Dislikes: fruit, eggs,
jewels, drinks .... AMIR .... The Prince Unlocked: Build the Exotic
Mansion (TRP5) Birthday: Winter 26 Likes: *milk*, tea, lots of varied
stuff Dislikes: lots of stuff that's pretty varied Amir isn't around in the
Fall because has things to do and places to go. ...... SANJAY ...... The
Prince's Attendant Unlocked: Build the Exotic Mansion (TRP5) Birthday:
Fall 12 Likes: herbs, teas, other stuff Dislikes: jewels, bugs, rocks and
branches and weeds, yogurts and eggs and such ...................
BACHELORETTES [302] ................... These are the ladies you can date
if you are playing a male character. ..... IROHA ..... The blacksmith
Unlocked: First Spring 15 Birthday: Winter 5 Likes: *Scrap Metal*,
*flowers*, metals, lumber/material stones Dislikes: animals, milk,
animal items like fodder, treats, cheese, yogurt Iroha is the first new
person to move to Echo. It won't take very long to unlock her, but it will
feel like forever. You just have to get to Spring 15 and an event will
trigger that unlocks Iroha. She's a friendly person and seems to like
you right from the start. You'll be really glad to meet her because she
gives you a hammer and axe and those things open up a few cool
things for you to do. Also if you befriend her she'll give you blueprints
for upgrading your tools, which are super-useful (and necessary) so
make befriending her a priority. It's not that hard, though. She likes
that useless scrap metal that is laying out in the forest, and she likes
flowers, too. .... TINA .... Your friendly neighborhood paperboy
Unlocked: First Summer (TRP2) Birthday: Summer 12 Likes: whatever,
she's pretty agreeable. Just give her some bugs or whatever. Dislikes:

veggies Work: She delivers you morning paper Apparently paper


routes in this town pay extremely well. Tina is a lively girl and cute
too. She seems kind of young and naive. She spends her time
wandering the town and wilderness looking for 'scoops' she can write
about. She seems to suspect that you have some secret... and she's
right... but she never seems to even begin to comprehend what you
REALLY are. .... YURI .... The Tailor Unlocked: Build Tailor's Shop (TRP5
but you can build it way earlier) Birthday: Winter 19 Likes: *herb soup*,
cloth, flowers, butterflies Dislikes: mayonnaise, animal treats, bugs,
snowball Work: Tailor, 10-6, Tue, Wed, Thu She doesn't have a heart
and she looks like a boy, but she's actually another bachelorette. You're
going to have a hard time figuring out how much she likes you since
the game isn't telling you. Otherwise she is very quiet and shy and
downright socially awkward. ........ FELICITY ........ The waitress
Unlocked: Build the Restaurant AND the Inn (TRP3) Birthday: Spring 2
Likes: cooked dishes, yogurt, mayonnaise Dislikes: milk and milk
products, frogs, jewels, flowers, cloth, wool, yarn She likes food and
helping people but she can't cook. How sad. ........ MICHELLE ........ The
Magician Unlocked: Build the Fantastical House (TRP4) Birthday: Fall 17
Likes: honey, jewels, flowers, yogurts, cloth, teas Dislikes: honey tea,
mushrooms, bugs, salads, cheese, butter, crops .............. WITCH
PRINCESS .............. Which Princess? Unlocked: Build Pointy Hat House
(it's a long story) Birthday: Winter 29 Likes: grape and grape juice,
poison mushroom, weed, snowball, jewels Dislikes: peach, animal
treats, perfumes Work: Witch's Whimsy, 12-5, Tue, Wed, Thu
Unfortunately for all of you witch-lovers out there (and I consider
myself as part of that category) this final bachelorette is a real pain to
unlock and trying to do so will take no small amount of tedious mining
and whatnot and scavenging in the hope of obtaining all of the rare
items that go into making her house. Even the blueprint for her house
is in three hard-to-find pieces! Ay carumba! And to make a bad
situation worse: one of the items needed to build her house is a rare
item in the final travel agency destination... and it costs 120,000G just
to visit that place. Get your hopes down. .................. AND THE REST
[303] .................. These characters aren't nearly as important as they
ones you can wed, though some of them have their uses as shopkeeps,
and some of them will even give you really nice things if they like you.
I'll leave you to guess which ones until I deign to reveal that
information to you. ....... Dunhill ....... Mayor of Echo Village Birthday:
Spring 6 Likes: *cheese* Dislikes: lots of stuff Work: Mayor. Later he'll
run the Memory Museum, 10-6, Fri, Sat, Sun Dunhill is the first person
you meet in Echo. He's the mayor, which apparently means that his job
is to come up with ideas and then have you spend your time and
money to build them. He also lets you re-arrange the town as you see
fit, so really, who's actually in charge here? He's also the paperboy
until Tina moves to Echo. Anyways Dunhill (or Dunny, as I will be

calling him) is a weak and creepy old man who likes to come into your
house when you're sleeping and tell you about his crazy dreams and
schemes. .... Emma .... The Shipper Birthday: Spring 28 Likes: apples,
apple recipes, honey, milk, eggs, jewels, whatever Dislikes: frogs,
coffee packs, fish, bugs, animal treats, iron, weed, sticks Work: Shippin
Emma is the motherly woman who lives in Echo when you arrive. She
also owns a shipping box so you'll have to stop by her house to ship
items (and make money). Emma is going to try to set you up with her
daughter Yuri (making her a 'shipper' twice over). .... Hana .... The
little old lady who runs the General Store Birthday: Fall 20 Likes: *fish*,
fireflies, butterflies Dislikes: weed, rocks, branches, dragonflies, frogs,
bees, bread, beetles, etc. Work: General Store, 10 -6, Mon, Tue, Thur,
Fri, Sat Hana is the other other character who still lives in Echo when
the game begins. She runs the general store and she'll sell you things
that get released for sale gradually over the course of the game. Most
of her crop seeds vary by season, though. She also can make you
flower bouquets. ....... Rebecca ....... The Architect Unlocked: Spring
25 Birthday: Summer 9 Likes: *lumber*, iron, yogurts, fishies, milk,
cheese Dislikes: perfumes, drinks, flowers, herbs Work: Rebecca's
Designs, 10-6, Wed, Fri, Sun Getting to Spring 25 and unlocking
Rebecca is when the game really opens up because with her comes the
BLUEPRINT and BUILDING and EDITTING systems that really make this
game fun. You'll be super happy that she's here and maybe a little
disappointed that she has a kid and is not interested in dating you. Oh
well. She's pretty tough and independent and is probably too much
woman for you to handle anyways. Her store is only open three days a
week but you'll be there as often as possible picking up blueprints and
probably the materials too, since the MINE won't be open until long
after she arrives. .... Toni .... Rebecca's son Unlocked: Spring 25
Birthday: Summer 14 Likes: *soil*, beetles, fish, walnut, apricot,
bamboo, snowballs, bugs Dislikes: anything that's not total
garbage ....... Clement ....... The Chef Unlocked: Build the Restaurant
(TRP3) Birthday: Summer 2 Likes: *mushrooms*, cheese, fish Dislikes:
bugs, jewels, minerals, weed, rocks and branches Work: Chez Clement,
10-6, Mon, Wed, Thu, Sat, Sun ...... Hossan ...... The Innkeeper
Unlocked: Build the Inn (TRP3) Birthday: Fall 5 Likes: mayonnaise,
cooked food Dislikes: lots of stuff Work: Inn (it's not a shop for you
though) .... Niko .... The innkeeper's son Unlocked: Build the Inn
(TRP3) Birthday: Winter 12 Likes: mayonnaise, walnut, apricot,
bamboo, bugs, mushrooms, cooked food Dislikes: herbs and flowers,
bees ..... Klaus ..... The Snooty Clinician Unlocked: Build the Clinic
(TRP3) Birthday: Spring 13 Likes: herbs, flowers, mushrooms, salad and
soups Dislikes: desserts, juice, bugs, minerals, jewels, lumber, etc.
Work: Klaus's Clinic, 10-6, Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat This guy is a
jerk. ........ Kosaburo ........ Hana's Man Unlocked: 1st Winter, Hana
likes you Birthday: Summer 22 Likes: *fish*, bugs, lots of stuff Dislikes:

bread, tea, flowers, jewels, perfumes Work: Bait Shop, 10-6, Mon, Wed,
Fri You have to make Hana like you to unlock this guy, and then you
have to befriend him to get the blueprints for the MASTER FISHING
ROD. The both of them like fish. ....... Charles ....... Prince of Wales
Unlocked: Build a Travel Agency (TRP4) Birthday: Fall 2 Likes: roses and
moondrops, cheese, fish, drinks Dislikes: tea, animal items, jewels,
weed, rocks and branches Work: Camellia Travel, 10-6, Mon, Tue, Thu,
Fri Okay that 'Prince' thing is a joke of mine. This is the guy that runs
the Travel Agency, a magical and expensive operation that can take
you to far away lands to collect exotic items. If you have lots of money
and time to spare you should totally check these places out. Going to
one unlocks more, I think, and also Charles has to like you somewhat.
Remember that it takes some time to get there and that if you don't
come back before nine then you'll automatically go to bed when you
return. There are four places Charles can take you. Going to one
unlocks the next one, though you also have to have reached a certain
season too. Also each new destination is more expensive than the last.
The first one is SOUTHERN ISLAND and it has pearls and some other
nice things. The next one is a SNOWLAND and it's kind of boring. You
can bring an item called an ICE DRILL there if you want to fish. Mostly
you have to go there to get ICE for recipes that need ice. After that is
the LAND OF THE EAST where there is a nice person who will give you
access to STRAWBERRIES and WASABI. And then after that is the last
travel destination which for some reason I can't recall the name of right
now. Hmmm. ........ Camellia ........ Duchess of Cornwall Unlocked:
Build a Travel Agency (TRP4) Birthday: Summer 5 Likes: herbs,
perfumes, flowers, crops Dislikes: milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, rocks
and branches, bugs .... Hina .... Charles and Camellia's kid Unlocked:
Build a travel agency (TRP4) Birthday: Summer 26 Likes: fruit drinks,
fruit, flowers, butterflies Dislikes: fish, frogs, bugs, branches and rocks
and weeds ...... Sandra ...... Creepy Barter-shop lady Unlocked: 2nd
Summer, build the Inn (TRP3) Birthday: Fall 7 Likes: animal food and
treats, weed, rocks and branches, tea Dislikes: animals, fish, bugs,
salads Work: Sandra's Stall, 7pm-10pm, Fri, Sat, Sun Sandra runs a
stall where you can trade her the crops or animal items from your farm
for rare jewels and downs and things of hers. You have to give her
goods of as high a quality (or higher) than she asks for, and the things
she wants are really specific, so you may not be able to cover the
spread of what she's asking for until your third year or so. ......
Olivia ...... The Tea lady Unlocked: Build a bungalow (TRP5) Birthday:
Fall 28 Likes: bamboo, herbs, flowers, fruits, yogurt, drinks Dislikes:
fish, bugs, dishes, other stuff Work: Tea Stall, 10-6, Fri, Sat, Sun (when
the animal shops aren't out) The tea shop is a lot like the restaurant
where you can buy things and eat them then and there but can't take
them to go. Bummer. ............... Harvest Goddess ............... Goddess of
the Harvest Unlocked: Spring 27, afterwards throw stuff in her pond

(up on the mountain) Birthday: Spring 8 Likes: strawberries, crops,


milk, flowers Dislikes: other garbage Throwing 50, 100, or even more
items in her pond will get you a title. You know about titles, right?
Those things that you get in the mail and can check on in your
bookcase? Yeah, you get one of those for throwing money away. If that
doesn't appeal to you (and it shouldn't) then just don't bother with her
at all. ..... Aaron ..... The little man who lives in your head Unlocked:
Spring 17 Birthday: Spring 19 Likes: whatever Dislikes: whatever This
is the little guy who hides music around town sometimes, usually
inside new houses when you build them. Finding the music sheets and
then visiting this guy in his secret grove (not on rainy days) is one way
you unlock new stuff. Otherwise, talking to this guy and his sister is
totally pointless. ..... Alice ..... The bossy little gnomess Unlocked:
Spring 17 Birthday: Spring 29 Likes: whatever Dislikes: whatever Don't
give her anything. Don't bother talking to her. She will poison your
crops if you talk to her. .........................................................................
************************************************************************
* 4. WALKTHROUGH - CHARACTER CREATION AND THE TEDIOUS DAYS
OF SPRING [400]
************************************************************************
* ......................................................................... So you're starting a
new game. I'll tell you upfront: it's going to be slow going for a while.
Grin and bear it. When you select NEW GAME (which is the only option
available to you when you first get this game... there aren't even
'options' lol) you will be taken to the CHARACTER CREATION MENUS.
The first thing you do is pick a SEX, which is a super big decision that is
going to affect who you can woo in this game. Note that there are no
homosexual dating options. There are two save spots, which means if
you want to see both sides of this game then you can play one as a
boy and another as a girl. Then again, if you want to share this game
with someone else, you'd have to take one each. Finally if you only
want to play this game once, but when you're getting near the end you
have two potential mates you like, you can save your game to both
slots and then marry a different person in each. Pretty neat... but not
as neat as those games that have like thirty save slots and therefore
let you marry everyone without having to play the game over and over
again. So okay you choose your sex. Then you have a couple of
CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION options. There are 4 skin colors, a couple
of different facial styles, a lot of different hairstyles and colors, and eye
colors, and a couple of outfits (you can get more outfits later on). And
when you're done picking all of that stuff you get to have a NAME (but
it's only 6 characters... bummer) and a BIRTHDAY. The game also warns
you that your name and your animal's names and your farm's name
can be viewed online when you CONNECT with people, so just be wary
about putting real personal information in here. Also certain words the
creators have deemed *obscene* won't show up

online. ................................. GOALS FOR YOUR FIRST SPRING


[401] ................................. Your goal for the first Spring is to hurry
through it and get to the good part of the game. This Spring is the
season of TUTORIALS and you are going to be sick of them very
quickly, but you are also going to find that there is nothing else to do
because the game is withholding all of the good stuff to keep you
playing longer. This spring is going to suck so just bear with it and it
will soon be over. The best thing that you can do as a virtual farmer is
to get up every morning and water your crops and take care of your
cow... and then go to bed by noon, or even 9:30 AM. If you're feeling
particularly industrious you can go run around the WILDERNESS
everyday and stock up on items you will need later, but you can still
have that done by noon. HONEYCOMBS are the item you're going to
want to hoard in your house. Never sell these things. Keep all of the
BEES you find, too. You can sell any other BUGS you find because they
are useless, but you may want to hold onto any flowers (they make
good gifts) or things that can be cooked. Also, you want to hold onto
any ROCKS and BRANCHES you find because you'll be needing them
later for building stuff. Don't be too tempted to axe/hammer them into
processed materials. At the end of the month is a CROP FESTIVAL and
if you win it then you'll increase the selling point of every crop you
grow from now on. When you're growing crops this season, pick at
least one of them to FERTILIZE everyday and keep it until the end of
the month to enter it in the festival. If you have the money you can
fertilize a couple of crops and keep them for much later in your career
when you can turn them into SEEDS. So yeah, Spring is tutorials and
nothing to do. Grin and bear it, power through it,
etcetera. ................................ SPRING 1 - A NEW BEGINNING
[402] ................................ You are introduced to ECHO VILLAGE and
how desolate and sorry a town it really is. Then you step onto the
scene, a chosen hero, the only one who can save this town... but first
you are the only one who can save this sickly guy who passes out in
front of you. But before you are able to save him you start hearing
voices in your head, so you really have to wonder who is really in
trouble in this situation. Anyways, listen to the voices and go over to
the fainted man and press A to help him. He'll tell you that his name is
DUNHILL and that he's the MAYOR and that he is an old friend of your
family and that he has been waiting for you and he's going to take you
to your family farm that you have inherited. Anyways Dunhill takes
you to Echo Village and then to his house. He'll explain HEALTH and
STAMINA, but not very well. They're not super important anyways.
Then you'll go back to your house and on the way you'll see the town's
other four inhabitants... and two of them are moving away. HUSSAN
the INNKEEPER is taking his son and looking for greener pastures.
Yeesh. Echo Village is looking pretty bleak. Then you are given the
option of naming your farm. Remember, 6 characters and it can be

viewed by others if you connect to the internet for trading. Your farm
has a lot of rubbish strewn about, and Dunhill gives you another
tedious chore in asking you to pick up 10 items, just to make sure that
you can pick up items. Well, get it over with and go pick stuff up. There
are some flowers amongst the worthless trash... so that's something.
Dunhill then explains how to work the camera, and how items have
star quality and how they take up room in your limited backpack. Next
Dunhill takes you inside your new house to show you all of your
FURNISHINGS and the different things they do. Your KITCHEN has a
REFRIGERATOR that can store food items, and a COUNTER where you
can COOK food using RECIPIES. Oh, and it turns out that you have 3
recipes already, and they're made using the very crops you're going to
be growing first this spring. Neat! Also you have a CALENDAR that
you'll be consulting to find out whenEVENTSandBIRTHDAYSare...but

worktowardsintheimmediatefuture.Thereisno'reward'todoing

thesethings,perse.Dunhillapparentlyexpectsforyoutobuildallof
thesebuildingsprobonobecauseyouarejustboredenough to do it. But

then again, building all of this stuff makes Echo Village more
interesting and it draws all of the other characters to the village, so
you might as well get to it. Here's the first TOWN RESTORATION PLAN:
1. Put up 5 Ball Topiaries around town 2. Put up 10 Streetlights around
town 3. Put up 3 Wooden Benches around town Small stuff at first... or
so it seems. If you look into the REQUIREMENTS of this stuff, however,
you will find out that they have some very steep prices. For instance,
each of those 10 streetlights requires 3 IRON to build... and right now
you can only get iron by buying it from Rebecca the architect for 500
G. That's 1500G in iron per streetlight... 15,000G for all of ten of them.
That's a lot of money (especially if you just got a letter in the mail
telling you that you only made two or three times that much in all of
last season). And those ball topiaries require MOONDROP FLOWERS (so
hold onto those) and SMALL BRANCHES... so don't be too chop happy
in turning those branches into lumber. If you need lumber, chop down a
tree (save a branch). Things I would recommend that you do outside
of this town restoration are upgrading your axe and hammer. And get
yourself a BELL so you can bring your cow outside without so much
hassle. And build yourself a CHICKEN COOP and get a CHICKEN when
you have some spare time and money. And hey, since you're a farmer,
maybe grow some crops over the summer? Tomatoes and onions this
time around. Oh, and plant one of those long-living flowers and fertilize
it everyday so you can enter it in the CROP FESTIVAL at the end of the
season, why not. Oh, and the most important thing you should build is
a STOREHOUSE or whatever it's called, the building that provides
storage for all of those branches and rocks and whatnot that you've
been picking up and lugging around. That'll free up some space in your
bag. And hey, if you're getting sick of having your bag being half full of
tools and not having room for picking up items in the wild, go over to
the general store and get yourself a bigger bag for 5000G or whatever.
A good investment for sure. Chances are you'll get through the first
TOWN RESTORATION PLAN (TRP) and you'll move onto the second one
before this summer is even half-way through. Congratulations! Your
reward for completing TRP1 is TRP2. Without stopping for breath, let's
move onto the next round of town upgrades. 1. Build a Newspaper
Carrier's House 2. Have an adult cow 3. Build a Salon 4. Put up 10
bushes around town 5. Ship 10 jars of honey Maybe you already build
the Newspaper Carrier's House just to get Tina in your town, or the
Salon for Allen. If so, no worries. If not, you better get out there and get
some money and get the blueprints and get some materials. You'll
need a lot of Material Stone, but you may want to avoid using your
hammer to make this from rocks (because you need unprocessed
rocks, too) and instead just buy the material stone from Rebecca. The
lumber you can get easily from trees so go ahead and chop them

down. Chop them all down. You probably already have an adult cow,
assuming you didn't somehow kill the one Neil gave you last spring. So
that just leaves the bushes and bees. Hmm. Well the weirdest
requirement of the bushes is that they need WEED as an ingredient, so
hopefully you didn't sell all of that lucrative resource. If you did, it's not
like weed is ever that hard to find. You can probably find a way to put
up those bushes, but how about honey? To get honey you're going to
have to build BEEHIVES. Remember way back at the start of this
walkthrough when I told you to hold onto whatever bees and
honeycombs you find? Well I did, and you should have, because you're
going to need them to fulfill this request in a timely manner. There are
no honeycombs around in the summer, so if you want to build beehives
now you better have saved some from spring. If you planned ahead
then you should be all set to build a whole bunch of beehives on your
property, fill them with bees, and then come back to them every week
or so and get yourself some sweet sweet honey. If you need room to
put up beehives then kill some trees south of you fields or somewhere
else. Try to put you beehives in a square grid to increase their
YIELD. ...................................... SUMMER 2 - You Get a Fishing Rod
[502] ...................................... Summer starts pretty poorly in that it
starts on a Wednesday and that means the General Store is closed and
you can't buy seeds for summer crops until tomorrow. Rats. Also on
Summer 1 you get a whole bunch of mail but most of it is garbage.
Anyways once Summer 2 comes around Aaron will congratulate you on
surviving this long and tell you that your career is actually beginning.
This means that you can go over to the River and Dunhill will give you
a ROD and teach you how to fish. Basically you can catch different stuff
at different piers and you can catch blueprints in addition to fishythings. GO ahead and buy some summer crops (and recipes and a
bigger bag) and start your farming for this
season. ........................................ SUMMER 3 - GIFTS FROM THE
FOREST [503] ...................................... If you go to the forest then the
Harvest Goddess will appear and show you how to use your hammer to
get special gifts from that one tree that was keeping a secret from you.
You can hammer this tree everyday now to get items, and some of
them are relatively rare (like GREEN DOWN, which you should hold
onto). Try to check this tree and any STUMPS around the wilderness
everyday. If you continue running around the wilderness you'll notice
that summer has different items for you than spring did, so that's nice.
Summer 4 - A Cow Festival Today Dunhill has an idea for a new festival,
but it's not for a whole month. Try to keep you cow alive that long and
take care of it and hopefully it will like you enough by then that you
can win the beginner's class. You should think about getting the
blueprints for the BELL so you can make it and bring your cow outside
for a couple of hours per day. Also make sure that your cow isn't
pregnant on Fall 4 or it can't participate. There aren't a lot of festivals

available in your first Summer, are there? I guess you should just
spend the next few days fishing and gathering items. I hope you
bought a big bag that holds 50 items. After 8 days or so you should
have some onions ready to sell for a big payday. Maybe you can think
about investing in new fields? Also if you have lots of extra stamina at
the end of the day then find some trees you won't miss and chop them
down. You are going to need a lot of lumber for all of the houses you'll
be building shortly... but you may have lots of extra lumber too and
that stuff sells for a decent amount of gold. ..................................
SUMMER 11 - A GARDENING TOUR [504] .................................. Dunhill
comes to tell you about another new festival idea of his (and like his
last idea, this festival won't be until next month). He wants you to set
up a 'Garden Space' and show off lots of 'Amenities' on it, and he
wants you to do it on the 11th of every month. I'll have more info on
this festival later, and its a really great way to increase your friendship
points with the villagers, but it's kind of a big hassle and anyways you
won't have the money and materials to make really cool amenities for
a while yet. Just make sure that before Fall 11 that you get the
blueprint for the 'garden space' and then build the dang thing, or else
everyone in town will be really mad at you. The garden space is a
HUGE thing so you're going to have to move some things around on
your farm (or just cut down lots of trees... you did upgrade your axe so
you can cut down those pine trees, right?). Summer 13 - You get a
farm evaluation in the mail today telling you that you are doing a bad
job. Thanks for that, unseen farm evaluation committee. Sometime
soon you may want to build a CHICKEN COOP. There is no tutorial for
chickens (blasphemy, I know) but you can get a sense of what you
need to do with them from the ANIMAL INFORMATION DESK that gives
you your animal's status and shows you little greyed out icons of what
you can do with your animals every day. The chickens themselves are
5000G and you'll have to buy CHICKEN FEED, too, but one bag of that
lasts for several days so don't buy too much. Anyways after you get a
chicken you'll also get a CHICKEN FESTIVAL on Fall 21. For the rest of
the summer you can focus on your crops and building those houses for
the TRP and whatever else you want to build. You're going to need to
cut down a lot of trees to make room for beehives and gardening
spaces and buildings so make sure to use any extra stamina you have
to chop some trees. You're also going to have to start paying attention
to the layout of your town. You'll probably have to start tearing up
some roads and things to make room, but if you are efficient you
should find space for everything. And hey, once you finish TRP2, the
villagers are going to give you a whole new town section where you
can put lots and lots of houses. Oh and as for beekeeping, it's really
easy. J
put the beehives somewhere and put some bees inside, and then
come back in a week or so when they are sparkling because that

means the honey is ready. And then the bees will start making honey
again, they don't even have to be replaced. Bees don't work on rainy
days, though, so if you have a lot of rain then honey production will
slow down. Oh, and once you start beekeeping you'll learn of a
Beekeeping festival... next spring. There are literally no festivals this
summer. Summer 30 is the crop festival. Try to win the beginner level
in another category. ........................................
**************************************** 6. WALKTHROUGH PART 3 FIRST FALL [600]
**************************************** ........................................
Hooray! Fall is here! It's going to be more or less productive for you
than Summer was. On the one hand, you probably won't be getting as
much Town Restoring done, but on the other hand the output of your
farm (and your profits) should be soaring. With an upgraded axe and
some blueprints you can fill the whole of your farm with fields and start
growing all kinds of crops... even crops that grow in all seasons like
wheat and cotton and other stuff. Beyond crops you can also start
farming new animals and even mushrooms. Neat! The town will be
getting bigger, too. Once you complete Town Restoration 2 the
townsfolk are going to give you access to a whole new screen for you
to fill with houses, if you so choose (but you can probably fit all the
houses you'll be building in the near future into the first screen). Town
Restoration Plan 3 is going to bring you into contact with a whole
bunch of new residents you'll be happy to meet. There's CLEMENT at
the RESTUARANT, and YURI at the TAILOR SHOP (not actually a part of
TRP3, but an easier house to build), and KLAUS the doctor and HOSSAN
and NIKO and FELICITY at the INN and ROD at the PET STORE. Don't
worry if you don't get all of them this Fall. All of these new buildings
mean new stuff for you to buy (IE you can buy new OUTFITS from Yuri if
you bring her materials like cotton and wool) and new SHEET MUSIC
being hidden about town for you to unlock stuff. You're getting closer
to some of the real hidden goodies now. Fall is much busier with
events than Summer was. Right away you'll be going to a COW
FESTIVAL on the 4th and GARDENING TOUR on the 11th, and then a
CHICKEN FESTIVAL on the 21st and the old standard CROP FESTIVAL on
the 30th and a PUMPKIN FESTIVAL after that. Winning the cow festival
beginner class shouldn't be too difficult if you've been nice to your cow.
The GARDENING TOUR is a whole other story and you're going to have
to shell out lots of cash for that one if you hope to win, but even
participating and losing is good for your standing with the villagers.
Just do it and don't worry about being a total loser. As usual there is
new stuff to forage (go pick up some honeycombs to complete TRP2
now if you didn't save them from spring) and new stuff to buy from the
General Store, like an EVEN BIGGER BAG. And there are even FRUIT
SEEDS you might want to plant before fall is through. CHERRY TREES,
for instance, give fruit in spring and take 50 days to grow... so if you

want a cherry filled spring then you should be planting the seeds in
fall. There are lots of new blueprints for things you COULD splurge on,
like bigger storage boxes and whatnot, stuff that you really don't need
immediately. But let's move right along into what you should focus on
doing. ............................... GOALS FOR YOUR FIRST FALL
[601] ............................... Participating in the GARDENING TOUR on
the 11th is a priority. Dunhill will ask you to compete on the 2nd and
explain nothing to you. Make sure you have the GARDENING SPACE
blueprint and that you build and set up that thing. It's really big so you
may have to move some stuff around. What I did was move my
barnyard south a bit and put the gardening space in the upper-right
side of my property. But then it turned out that you totally can put that
thing in town, so if you've completed TRP2 and unlocked the second
area of Echo Village, go chop down a family of trees and set your space
up there. After you find room for it you still have to build AMENITIES to
put on it, and that costs a lot of money and materials so don't go nuts
over it. This festival happens every month so you can really go all-out
on it later when you have money and blueprints. Something you want
to do sooner rather than later is buy a SHEEP. The sheep festival is in
Winter and you're going to want a happy sheep by then. Plus getting
WOOL is needed for one of the buildings in TRP3 and you also need
wool to make new outfits. So hop to it. You should make some
CLIPPERS too. Maybe we should talk about Town Restoration Plan 3.
It's a doozy. It has 7 requirements, 4 of which involve building houses.
That's not even the steepest task though. One of them tasks you with
shipping a lifetime total of 200,000G. On Fall 1 you'll get a letter telling
you how much you shipped in the summer, and you can do the
extrapolating needed to figure out when you're going to hit 200,000G
(it probably won't be for a long while, maybe not even before the end
of your first YEAR). So yeah, TRP3 is going to keep you busy for a while.
Here it is: 1. Build a Pet Shop (cottage blueprint, soon available) 2.
Build a Restaurant (this BP is already available) 3. Build and Inn (this
BP is soon available) 4. Build a Clinic (this BP is soon available) 5. Ship
200,000G 6. Have an adult sheep for sheep festival (sheep cost 7000G)
7. Have 15 villagers for a MUSIC FESTIVAL About the last one... you
have 10 villagers now and building those buildings above (and the
tailor's shop) will carry you over the 15 people mark. You will want to
have this done before 2nd Spring 25 when the Music Festival takes
place. Now building these 4 houses is going to cost you a LOT of
materials... you know the stuff: material stone... you're going to need
like 60 material stones for each house. You'll probably just have to buy
it from Rebecca... and it's not cheap. The houses have other
requirements too, like mint or wool. You'll probably get the restaurant
first and then the cottage. You will also notice that the TAILOR SHOP is
not part of the TRP3 but is relatively easy to build, so you might as well
build it and bring Yuri to town. The last one you build will probably be

the INN because it requires items from the mine. How is the mine
unlocked, you ask? Well, you'll have to build all of the other houses in
this TRP and have the munchkin man hide some sheet music in them,
of course. But building all of those houses might take a while so I'm
going to go over all of this again in my 1st Winter walkthrough. What
else should you be doing in Fall besides Town Restoration? Well,
building fields and planting lots of crops, of course. Plant some CHERRY
TREES for next spring. AND OH, OH MAN... THIS IS HUGE: UPGRADE
YOUR WATERING CAN. A copper watering can is like 80 times better
than the regular one. You can upgrade your other tools if you wish, but
the watering can is the really useful one. ..........................................
****************************************** 7. WALKTHROUGH PART 4 FIRST WINTER [700]
****************************************** ..........................................
There's no beekeeping allowed in Winter, so pull up all of those empty
beehives and put down more and more fields and fill them with
broccoli and snowdrop flowers and daikon and wheat and cotton and
apple seeds and whatnot. You can make a killing this season if you
work at it. There's also new items out in the wilderness like Elli Leaves
and Snowballs... but they're pretty useless. Have you unlocked the
MINE yet? You need to build the pet shop and restaurant and clinic to
unlock it. Then Aaron will hide a music sheet in the clinic (on the first
floor in that room divider thing) and you'll be able to play a song to get
Aaron to open the mine up. Anyways, if you go inside the mine you'll
find stuff just lying on the ground, but the good stuff is hidden away in
those three colored sections of wall and you'll need to use your
hammer (and stamina) to hack away at them. You can only use each
spot a couple of times per day, and you need to upgrade your hammer
to access the higher-level spots. The next hammer upgrade needs
PLATINUM though so if you happen to mine any of that stuff be sure to
put it towards a better hammer. But the first thing you'll be hoping to
mine is some SILVER to build the INN (and then to upgrade all of your
tools) and finish Town Restoration Project 3. When you get TRP3 done
the villagers are going to give you a really, really good gift: a whole
new section of primo farmland. It's got springs and terraces and its just
waiting for you to fill it with fields and paddies. Oh, have you started
farming PADDIES yet? You might as well, and if you haven't started
growing TREES yet you should get started because they need lots of
growing time before giving off lots and lots of fruit. Don't put your trees
on those terraces though because the terraces can be automatically
watered and trees don't even need water. Let's see, what else can you
do now that TRP3 is done or nearly done? Oh, you can start buying
PETS like HORSIES and KITTIES and DOGGIES. They can help you with
your farmwork but they're not especially cost-efficient. You'll have to
buy a HOUSE for them, too. You can only have one pet house and one
horse and then four other pets. And if you start working on TRP4 and

get new villagers then you'll also unlock new things to do, too. Far and
away the most interesting is the TRAVEL AGENCY, which will let you
explore all sorts of exotic locations and bring back exotic items. Very
fancy, but I'm going to assume that you won't get around to building it
until next spring. There are some interesting festivals in Winter, too,
like the Snow Festival on the 4th. Then it's Iroha's and Neil's and Niko's
birthdays. Then Boy's Harmony Day is on the 14th, but this year that
isn't a big deal if you're playing a boy because you'll only be getting
gifts from the girls you gave gifts to on Girl's Harmony Day way back
on Spring 14... when there were no girls in town. However, if you're a
girl then you are obligated to give deserts to all of the eligible
bachelors in town. After that there is a sheep festival so I hope you
bought a sheep a long time ago, not that it matters because I wouldn't
recommend shipping wool over making outfits with it. After that is
Yuri's birthday and then Starry Night on the 25th, which in this game is
your chance to ask take someone out on a very romantic date and
then to go home alone. If you've been getting chummy with someone
who has been in town a while and who you've been giving lots of gits
to then they may have reached the BLUE HEART LEVEL by now and the
Harvest Goddess will pay you a visit to tease you about how loveydovey you've been getting, and then suggest that you buy a
COMMITMENT RING, confess your love and start dating. It's basically a
tutorial on dating. Anyways the RING costs a lot of money, but don't
worry, you're not in any way obligated to buy it for whichever villager
happened to take a liking to you. You need the ring to see more heart
events and allow you to get married, but you're still young and free to
play the field and I say you should enjoy it while you
can. ................................. GOALS FOR YOUR FIRST WINTER
[701] ................................. Getting TRP3 done is probably going to
keep you busy during the winter, if not longer. But if you've been
following my excellent and expert advice then you ought to be long
done and can start work on TRP4. Here it is: 1. Build an Eastern Style
House 2. Build a Magician's House 3. And a Travel Agency 4. Build a
Well for the town 5. Hold 3 Gardening Tours 6. Win the Intermediate
level Crop Festival 7. Have 20 villagers for a Fireworks Festival 8. Ship
30 yams and 30 potatoes 9. Ship 500,000G The thing that's going to
take the longest to complete here is the YAM requirement, since you
may not have access to those until they start being sold next Fall. You
can try to trade for them online or hope to win them in a festival, but
otherwise you're stuck with this TRP until fall. Yeesh. I've decided to
put all of my expert and insightful advice on completing these projects
up in the 'Town Restoration Projects Section' of this walkthrough so go
and check up there if you want to find out about all of the materials
you'll be needing to build this stuff. Right now I'll just tell you that
building the Eastern House is easiest and unlocks a new bachelor,
while building the fantastic house is hardest and unlocks a

bachelorette. Oh, and apparently up until now Echo Village hasn't had
clean water? Go figure. You should probably build a well before
everyone dies from drinking unsafe water. The most interesting and
useful building you can construct in this TRP is the Travel Agency so I
would suggest working towards that first and foremost. But then again,
it's pretty expensive, so maybe you should put your nose to the
grindstone and tend to your farm. You'll need to make a MAKER SHED
and a CLOTH MAKER MACHINE also, which will take some time and also
open up a lot of new things for you to do, so make those things a
priority. The blueprint for the maker shed costs 1600G and you'll need
20 material stones, 20 lumber, 3 bricks, and an amethyst to build it,
and that means you'll need the mine. The different machines that go in
the shed have their own steeper requirements. You'll also definitely
have to get a SEED MAKING MACHINE for winning the intermediate
crop festival. You're going to want to get used to using this machine to
make better quality seeds. Oh... here's one thing you should do this
winter. As soon as winter starts go and buy yourself a 20,000G YAK
from Neil and try to make it like you before the 18th of
Spring. .........................................
***************************************** 8. WALKTHROUGH PART 5 SECOND YEAR [800]
***************************************** .........................................
Things down on the farm ought to have settled into a nice flow by the
time you make it to your second year. You should have dozens of fields
constantly churning out crops and generating mad cash, and hopefully
you are getting into the habit of fertilizing some of your crops everyday
too. You should have a steady routine for getting up in the morning to
check on your many animals and harvesting some fodder. You should
be making a point of visiting the mine everyday and looking for rare
minerals, and hopefully you've found enough of them so far that
you've been able to upgrade your tools a couple of times over so that
your massive farm can be dealt with in no time at all. Echo Village
ought to be a lively place now with lots of different shops for you to
buy things from. Nowadays if you get tired from work you can just go
to the restaurant to recover your stamina, and if you're sick of your
looks you can change your hair or clothes. You can even start getting
less useful and more cosmetically appealing animals for your farm. Yay
kitties! Anyways, a lively town also means that you'll have a lively
calendar. Hopefully you won't be so busy down on the farm that you
can't find the time to go out. One good reason that you should go out
is that now its going to be possible for you to start winning some of the
many festivals going on in town. With a little application of the SEED
MAKER and the long-term care of your animals and some money and
blueprints to throw around, you suddenly have a very real shot of
winning everything and getting all kinds of rewards and brand power
and making people like you. You're winner! Speaking of getting people

to like you... have you picked out a sweetheart yet? By now you should
have 4/6 bachelor/ettes available to you, or somewhere thereabouts. If
your desired one isn't in town yet then you should probably be focusing
on getting them here pronto. Basically if your crush has been in town a
long time then they'll slowly be warming up to you, but if they come
later in the game you'd best be ready to give them a great gift every
day to speed the whole 'courtship' thing along. Yup, things are
definitely looking up in Echo... but if the revitalized town still isn't
enough for you then you'll soon have the option of just up in leaving
(at least for the day). Once you get the Travel Agency built and you
have a lot of money and time on your hands, you'll be able to travel to
all sorts of exciting and exotic locales. Well... four sorts anyways. And
only one at first. Whatever. Its fun and there are different items there.
Items! For this year I'll just give some general goals for you to consider
over the course of the year instead of by season. You don't need to be
in a rush to do any of this stuff. Since TRP4 probably won't be
completed until late in the fall (if you have to wait to get yams) I'm just
going to neglect talking about TRP5 until my section on 'year 3'. Feel
free to skip ahead if you unlock TRP5 sometime this year. Instead of
going over all of the seasons in their own section this time around I'm
just going to list a general schedule for each season here and give
some special attention to those things that are potentially getting
unlocked this year. ................................ GOALS FOR YOUR SECOND
YEAR [801] ................................ 1. Build a Maker Shed 2. Build a Seed
Maker Machine and start making quality seeds. 3. Win intermediate
