I'm only in the 1rst season but there is very little farmland to start with and what there is, is grouped by four instead of nine plots. As in the 3rd version, there is soil quality but there is also an easy solution(a compost bin where you place various grasses). I've defeated 3 dungeon bosses so far, yet still only have access to one little 4X4 dungeon field. Thankfully there are plenty of wood, grass, and stones laying on the ground everywhere else. One of the nice things about this game is the ablity to plant several seasons worth of crops at the same time. Rather than multiple harvests, there is the ablity to pick a certain number of crops from the same plot at once. How many depends on the crop and the harvest report(favorablity of crops during a given week). Another nice aspect is the ablity to stack different levels of items together(except for cooked items and fish which don't stack at all). There is the option of using your "princess points" to increase your backpack size or even build various storage such as refrigerators. I can be very forgetful about whether I have bought something such as furniture so I don't like the ablity to buy multiples of things like stoves and forges, though. I LOVE the seperate backpack storage for magic and rune ablities. I hardly ever use them and they would just clog up my storage. I think you can also sell them in this version. Another problem I had with the last game was the waste of recipe bread because I used it while my level was too low. This game doesn't allow you to eat it unless it's high enough. I love being able to do more quests per day as I successfully complete them. It's great that something accomplished before taking the quest(buying furnishings) counts toward completion. If you're like me you may forget what your last mission was but, if so, all you have to do is check your desk for a reminder. Over all there seem to be more pros than cons to this game and I've barely even scratched the surface.
