Dieing of crops: Not good for Casual Players

I rarely play Cubic Castles right now. But I still want to get my farm going while I'm gone from time to time.

But it's just not possible, and it's not that easy.

I know, SPRINKLERS. But what about the people who are stuck in limbo, like me?
I'm still like level 4 on farming, because i just play casual.

And I just hate it when everytime I'm gone and I have those tomatoes planted, I just get upset and say "Damn it! They're going to die again."
And then I end up right, 2/3 of the farm died.

For those people who say I should stop farming, I said "I STILL WANT TO GET MY FARM GOING WHILE IM GONE"
READ BETWEEN THE LINES!

How about instead of dieing, it just stops growing, not stop growing as in DIE, it hesitates. It stays on the current stage.

    you can't compare real life to cc

    as for cc, i still have the urge to play it but i can't. I have lots of things to do
    it's comparing casual players to the addicted players, or players who play everyday

    farming is a good idea but the dieing of crops just dosen't suit people who don't or can't play all the god damn time

    also, 10 days? what if i just want to water it every, let's say 5 days because of school
    and let's say the time that the plants die without water is after 2 days
    it's just unfair for balancing life and cc

    it's also unfair to people who can water their crops everyday, they have time, we, casual players don't

    and if you say we should get a sprinkler say that to my 3 precious recubes.

    If you want, get a trusted friend to help you water the plants. There's other ways out of this predicament.

    Use quality soil and grow tomatos, since it just need watering once in it.

    Well considering this player is still using tomatoes, I would assume they don't have enough recubes for the quality soil o-O

    Personally, I don't mind the dying factor of crops. While it does make it harder for some, it's not like growing crops is extremely hard. It's like a comparison to what farmers of the pre-industrialized world did, worked hard for their crops.

    You will continue to be stuck unless you water your plants. I don’t see why you can’t log in for five minutes to water them. At level 4 you can't have more than 50. I water 50 everyday twice a day, and it takes less than five minutes all together. Put a workbench with some water on your farm so you can refill your watering cans easily, and have 5 watering cans so you can water all at once without refilling. Recipe for workbench is 2 iron, 2 sticks, 2 stone blocks, and any tree trunk. Recipe for watering can is iron and yellow dye. You just need a few minutes and your farm will be great.

    Okay, you guys don't see that we're not talking about LAZINESS, it's about the TIME I HAVE.

    Can you please stop talking and babbling about how industrious everyone is and that I can't find any time to water crops? I have a life to live. I'm too busy to play this game, every minute counts in my life, I don't want to spend 5 minutes or less watering my crops because if I do, I'm wasting 5 precious minutes of my real world.

    And if you're telling me to start making a new routine by waking up, spending 5 minutes into the game then leave, don't you understand that I keep forgetting to water my plants?

    AND IT"S NOT SIMPLE TO NOT TRY TO FORGET IT BECAUSE IT"S DIAGNOSED THAT I CAN FORGET SOME SIMPLE THINGS

    Like using what key to open each door
    Where to wash the plates
    Where to even pee
    and the likes

    If you know you rather live your life than play, why bother with crops. You now know it takes dedication, if you can't handle it... Welp. That's all you can do.

    Rather than I'm a casual player, i'm also losing interest in the game.
    I play very rarely

    Also, I need opinions from casual players, not people who play this game all the god damn time and wakes up and spends 5 minuets to JUST WATER CROPS?

    Losing*

    Yeah I had Grey to water my crops, but that was just 1 week

    Now I know how to solve the problem of the dieing of crops, I can't find a friend who can actually water my crops for eternity.

    Almost all of my friends play rarely and some already quit, those are all my trusted friends


    Don't take this oppurtunity to scam me.

    It is possible to lose some if you're timing is right on the 24 hr border. We should probably make it 25hrs and maybe we can update that with halloween update. So for some people maybe theyre just a little late. There may be another issue though.

    Honestly. Crops dying in a casual game is not ideal. I Dread the day where i cannot log on, cause i know most of my time and effort will go down the drain.
    It would be much better, and even fix such issues, if crops did not die, but instead pause on growth if not watered.
    So yes.. i fully agree ;)

    My friends have school and they enter to the game 5 minutes a day only to water the plants. Is hard, and take time. Just how devs want the farm be.

    Gettings seeds and sprinklers are a mere eventuality. There is still the issue of here and there.

    Outside of the box, instead of focusing singly on one individual's experience, why should players be forced to play each day just to grow farms. Shouldn't the casual and full time players enjoy the feature equally?

    The casual player can't spend a couple minutes for a game? I have a younger brother who doesn't play this game, but even he can spend 5 minutes to water the plant. How is this so difficult to manage?

    Uhhhmm not everyone has wifi daily and sometimes peeps r tired bcuz of a progressive long day irl.

    Basically, i don't think that cc has to adapt each feature of the game to each profil of gamer:
    You have time to work on farm, then farm
    You have time to make a huge build, make it
    You just have time to stack 3 blocks... stack 3 block...
    You have time to say hello, say hello^^

    But anyway...as bedone said, it's not that long to farm each day 5 minutes.
    ...nether it's the work of admin to worry of the daily wifi quality of players....

    Kinda disappointed in the lack of insight here.
    Many situations offer the lack of accessibility. Work/school changes, loss/damage of device, sickness/hospitalization, sudden responsibilities that may derive a player from accessing the game. etcetera. I Am not just speaking of those who choose to not play frequently, but why should that matter if that was the case? With such an idea that crops pause growth or incur a delay of a kind, will not break the game and still reward those who can frequent the feature.
    Complete destruction of ones hard work due to the lack/loss of access is too much in my opinion.

    I Am also yet to see a constructive or valid reason as to why not.
    "Simply do not farm", "Not hard to log on", "why change".
    Who is it going to harm if it was changed? Who is it going to benefit?
    How would you feel if you were placed under such circumstances where you lost crops? Some people may not see it as a big deal, but not everyone shares the same situational perspective.

    To say truth BJD, i never talk about things i dont know, so to answer you, i've been in that situation of losing much crops and wasting huge harvest.
    And it's because of knowing rules that i fully accepted my loss. I was rather like: "stupid me" than "why dont they make it easier to farm"
    When the time came to take a break, i just put the farm aside.

    What you call "improving the farm" is just "another sight of the actual farm" to me. Sad to see that not sharing your point of view is a "lake of insight".

    So at your question "Who is it going to harm if it was changed? Who is it going to benefit?"
    > Make happy players who are about leaving the game or who rarely play the game.
    > Unreward players who hope specialize in farm thing and stuff since it would be even easier to farm.
    > Adding stuff to admin... a stuff that i think unescessary

    and finaly... complaining about something you wouldnt have been able to complain before that awesome farm update.

    I completely agree with this, thanks BJD, it seems so silly to me that you are punished for not playing, in the form of dead crops. Have school? Too bad. Got sick? Too bad, etc etc. To say "you can just stop farming" is wrong, especially if you have a 4 or 5 day crop on the go. Sure you can stop farming.. in 5 days time. In reality life isn't like that, sometimes things happen that you cannot control and to be punished for that is just plain wrong...

    That perspective is quite understandable.
    But as i mentioned earlier.. "not everyone shares the same situational perspective". Some players could easily be deterred from such an experience. From a promotional view, it does not do the game justice that it deserves.


    When the time came to take a break, i just put the farm aside.

    As i mentioned above.
    Many situations offer the lack of accessibility. And many of them can happen without foresight.


    Sad to see that not sharing your point of view is a "lake of insight".

    Just to be clear. "lack of insight" was referring to the above statement of unforeseen lack of access. It was not intended to offend. It was used to point out the matter of out of the box thinking. Apologies.


    What you call "improving the farm" is just "another sight of the actual farm" to me.

    I Understand.
    If this was a single player game, crops dying from neglect makes perfect sense.
    But since MMO's such as CC cannot be paused or saved, things turn to "real time". So that makes a tremendous difference when it comes to things such as farming features.
    Along my lines of thinking, delaying or pausing crop growth instead of destruction, is a fair way of bridging that difference.


    Make happy players who are about leaving the game or who rarely play the game.

    And those who could not log on for unforeseen circumstances.
    I Do not see why not.


    Unreward players who hope specialize in farm thing and stuff since it would be even easier to farm.

    Adding the idea of delayed/paused growth will not change anything besides the fact that players will not lose crops, and those who do not water, will need to wait longer for full growth.

    as example:
    -Player A waters his carrots everyday. They are harvested in 3 days time.
    -Player B Forgets to water his carrots twice in those 3 days. They are harvested in 5 days instead of 3.
    -Player C is put in hospital for 3 days and comes back to water their carrots on the 4th day. They are harvested in 6 days instead of 3.

    Thus,
    those who regularly water, are rewarded with crops that grow on time.

    Those who do not water frequently, will not lose crops, but will need to wait longer before the crops can be harvested. But they can still enjoy the farming feature at their own pace.

    It may lessen the idea "farm specialists" by an amount, but they will still be able to produce more crops than somebody who is not as active.

    From how i see it.. CC is a casual game where all players should be able to enjoy a feature somewhat equally without being persecuted.


    > Adding stuff to admin... a stuff that i think unescessary

    Apologies, i do not seem to understand that line at all and how it fits in. Could you please redefine?

    I Am dreading the day when i will not be able to log on, due to unforeseen circumstance (which happens a lot to me with my wife in and out of hospitals). 2500 crops will wither and die.
