the oldie is a way lot better. there are other plant tiles besides the default cabbage, turnip, and red thing. i forgot where they are in the resource thread but they exist. with your skill you could always make new tileset for crops
you need to have a big plot of land to plow. you need a stable, then the bin box, a green house, an apple tree, a pond, a chicken coop. a dog, a horse, a mailbox. at the beginning each plot is fixed - emtpy, weed, branch, stump, rock, boulder. you get level up tools to be able to take down the stump and boulder. you need to have a custom sprite animation - like the ralph digging or the ralph riding a horse - when they use the tools - hoe, scythe, hammer, sprinkle, axe, and all. weeds, branches, are found at random on empty plots. the number of rocks are fixed since they can be used as fences. oh you need two other buildings - the log storage and hay storage. you also need a river where you fetch a pail of water.
