Reap What You Sow: Wicker's books rework


Recommended Posts

I've noticed that there are people who agree and disagree with the Applied Horticulture changes. So what do you all think if Applied horticulture cut growth times instead? Say for example, grass tuft takes 3 days to regrow a cut grass. You harvest it, a day goes by so there's 2 days left on the timer. Read Applied Horticulture and cut 0.5 days off so there's 1.5 days left on the timer. Or cut 50% of total growth time, or 50% of remaining growth time, some testing would reveal if any of these feel better.

Also suddenly thought of different approach, what if similar to Walter's storytelling, Wicker's books were an ongoing effect that drains sanity and book durability and accelerates the growth or reduces growth time? I haven't really thought about whether or not that is practical, so have at it.

Side note, I'd be ok with applied horticulture (or it's abridged version) having weaker effect and going back to affecting entire screen vs the 10 random plants that I saw at some point. I'm kind of afraid that the 10 random plants mechanic will lead to people planting 10 plant groups spread out around the map in order to predictably grow 10 plants that players want. I don't think creating a push in that direction benefits the game.

There are usually 16 people sitting around doing nothing at my megabase base, what are they supposed to do if I don't spam my book and feed them?
so yes, pls no nerf, revert everything asap so I can keep feeding them.

(Btw, your idea about her book cutting growth time instead is really interesting, althought I have no idea about how balanced it would be, how much time it would take to tune it and also... some people would get mad at this change and klei probably doesn't want to mess with this "bee hive" again anytime soon. Poor scott)

Make them work on the farms. If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.
