Notes

  • The Rain Totem can increase the chance of rain for the next day
  • During thunderstorms there is a possibility that lightning strikes can destroy crops and trees, and temporarily change Fruit Trees into coal trees.
  • Lightning will not strike Chests placed outside[1].
  • If Lightning Rods are placed anywhere on the farm[2] they have a good chance to intercept lightning strikes, as long as they are not already processing a strike into a Battery Pack.
  • Winter Seeds need to be watered even if it is snowing.
  • Snow transparency can be changed in the Options Menu. Sliding the bar to the left will increase snow transparency (i.e., decrease opacity).
  • The weather will always be "clear and sunny" for Festivals.
  • It will never rain in Winter unless you use a Rain Totem.

Bug

The TV will not necessarily be accurate for summer 13/26 or spring 2/4.
