I would sooner put in an 'irrigation' system so to speak to auto water pots in a radius. But that wouldn't be a small thing.

Its a delicate balance with stalls to allow automation but still leave some shortfalls to keep demand for some items, trades, and commerce in the small business world.


Yes, I know that. Sausages are special because there is no "all uses" value.
Well, I did quite well so far without selling sausages, I will see how the small sample sells and if it stays there too long, I'll keep selling cabbage crumbs instead.

It does not work reliably for me. Over several hundred clicks I saw the item once and for a fraction of second. Not a chance to see numbers.
But, indeed, that means it is possible to write a client mod which would copy item details into the system chat.

but would it be a small quick thing to make a item that you can make that places water and humus in a single click or is that too hard to code?

Not that it would be difficult. Just that it would be something I would then 'take out' if/when I did an irrigation system. I just dislike putting things in the game that I know would have a finite lifespan.

It will make you appreciate the irrigation system that much more.

it would force me to build the system right away when you take away the liquid fertilizer. and i would love the irrigation system as much or more after liquid fertilizer since i wouldnt need to spend 5 mins making the item 24 buckets = 2 hrs

Larger pots then. more water and humus use, higher yield.
Should remain compatible with irrigation.

Why do you have 600 pots then? LOL
Also when you implement the irrigation system it will obligate players to place the pots outside their mines which i support 100%
