Experience? crops mature too soon, and most of the ones i worked on, died too soon.

Advice? never spend real cash for a tool unless you understand its usage
It is also limited to once per 24 hour day.

That changed already - each time a crop is planted, it can be watered, even if crops have already been watered on the farm that day?

True, but sometimes until you but it into application you do not really know some aspects of it.

Did you water the farm after you planted the coffee? Was is at least 24 hours after you watered the farm the time before that? If the answer is no to either one of those that is why. You have to water the farm after you plant the crop and you can only speed up one crop in a 24 hour time frame.

Thank you Jas, your explanation is well documented... I wish though that this had been clearer when I purchased the tool, as I don't think I would have bothered with it.

Putting in my two cents regarding the new 'red' watering system: It has quite a few problems, which you are probably very aware of. I would like to know that this problem is being worked on? TY

Default is a day 20 hrs or 24 hrs?

For FT crops, a day is 20 hrs. Is the once per day irrigation and once a day watering also 20 hrs?

It is now. Raul posted an update on the release announcement a couple hours ago.

Does that mean you can only use the red sprinkler once a day period? Please help...Once a day per farm would be acceptable, but once a day between all 11 farms? That would suck.
Please clarify.....
p.s.
Love the Upgrades overall!!!
It is once a day per farm.

I'm not super-concerned that I can't turn over crop after crop multiple times daily - in fact, I would rarely have time for that.

My concern is that it isn't consistent with any method of planting/harvesting.

I'd really like it to fertilize the FARM, and I also dislike the once a day thing. Again, it doesn't flow with the crop rotations.

I have to keep going from farm to farm, with lots of loading time in between, to water. And I have to catch lots of crops partially grown and makes it impossible to keep up with what is done where.

Finally, I would like it to show the (w) when we hover over the diamond like it shows the (f).


The time between watering has been changed to 20 hours so unless you are planting one day or less crops the watering should work with your planting time. Also you can water a farm after you plant it before you move on to the next farm to plant.

What I really don't like is the fact that I spent 45 FC for the brown sprinkler. I bought it a few months ago to not only water my neighbors' flowers, but also mine. Now it no longer does anything. I spent another 50 FC for the red sprinkler and the combined action of them is not useful at all for me on how I do my farms.

I don't think anything will change though. They are convinced we don't need the brown sprinkler since they expanded the waste time. I stand by my opinion that there are times I want to water my flowers without having to worry about if it is going to speed up the crops I have already planted but didn't irrigate for some reason or another. If I "inadvertently" water my flowers on that non-irrigated field I am not going to be able to irrigate that field again for another 20 hours even if (for example) the field is ready to harvest in an hour.
Just a little FYI if you had not already bought the brown sprinkler when the red one came out you would have had to buy it before you could buy the red sprinkler. So while it may not really be needed anymore it is still required to have before you can buy the red sprinkler.

Default Sprinklers are't the only water troubles.

I don't own either of the sprinklers and reading about all the troubles I am sure I don't want them at all. But somehow along with the changes for the sprinklers, came a slight mishap with the watering can itself. Perhaps they are connected? When I water flowers with the can, some suddenly look half grown instead of mature and all say "ready in one minute" whether they are or not. I wish they had left the water system alone.
