they both have their merits, the new one is more enjoyable and you get lots for sinking the time but the old one you could put on a boat and and have fresh veg all of the time(especially if you had manure). it has only been a day but i already miss not having veggies while sailing

I just wished we could've kept the improved farm recipe for the sake of decorating and to grow crops instantly.

Using manure or a bucket o poop to grow a dragon fruit seed instantly would be nice in a real pinch, and personally I would probably use them for random seeds I find on my travels instead of risking growing weeds instead. But that's just my own opinion.

I like both, but seeing how fast you can start farming with the new update because you don’t need to gamble for beefalos/pigs for manure is staggering.

The fact that you get a seed back from harvesting plants with the new system fixed the biggest problem with the old system.

But only when you take good enough care of the plants.

My only issue, and I mean my only issue is that I have to harvest within a few days them growing due to rotting. But, like even if some rot, you could always just grow like 5000 more over the next few days so it doesn't matter much

I ain't tryin' to start a debate or anythin'. Well... what're your thoughts 'bout this?

I preferred old farms when beta just released, but after some fixes I started to like new ones.

I wish they made the blueprint a rare drop from Bunnymen, since they're shown farming with it in several set pieces in the caves. (btw what has happened to those set pieces now? :shock:)

I imagine the set pieces will just remain unchanged, the farms aren't being removed, you just won't be able to craft them anymore.

that will certainly make it a more desirable set-piece if it is near a fert source

yes well that's 1 character out of 17

And this is a team-based game. Meat dishes are still without question the best in the game, and we are all still responsible for helping other survivors with their dietary needs. 
So no, vegetables are not going to replace hunting for animals any time soon.

I'm not sure about your affirmation, it's so easy to have a huge amount of vegetables even without maintenance now, you just click once, at some point you don't worry anymore about getting food with the new farms and you have less reasons to keep hunting animals

I feel like the only people prefering the old farms (other than for aesthetic reasons) are those who don't really know how the new ones work

and those that don't like change, which is about 90% of humans today

 

it is normal to not like change, humans are beings of habit. something you are used to is easier to use than something superior that you are unfamiliar with (at least, at the beginning)
