    So I spent a lot of time playing today, and I cheekily bought a bit more inventory space by dropping unneeded tools into a chest. Unfortunately, I tried to open the chest containing my scythe and watering can (along with my materials, food, everything I own and love...) while holding a cherry bomb. This is how I learned many things.
    1. Chests can explode.
    2. Exploded chest do not drop their contents.
    3. If you explode a chest, (or in my case, two.) press ALT+F4 immediately. You will lose all progress from the day, and your chests will not be exploded. (In theory.)

    That last fact is in hindsight.

    When asked if its possible to retrieve lost tools, Lord ConcernedApe had this to say:


    I have had your game for less then a day, and I have already broken it. I am so sorry.

      Lost my scythe and none of the shops seem to sell replacements. Is there any way to get it back?

        So I'm new to the game. I got to level 10 in the mine and picked up the boots but didn't equipt them yet. I went down a level and died and lost the boots, is there a way to get them back or get them later? Don't think it's an item anyone sells...

          No but you can buy or find other boots.

              Thanks for the fast reply! And it all worked out, I have been playing through it again, and things are going much better overall! It's nice to know no one else will have the unfortunate experience I did however.

                Mine still went missing. I think I'm gonna have to uninstall and then reinstall and see what happens.

                  After five years, got the Palm Fossil to complete the museum collection. Got my final Stardrop from it, but it goes into your inventory instead of automatically eating it like all the others.

                  On a lark, I decided to see if the Stardrop was able to be sold. So I went to my farm's sell box and opened it. It triggered the Stardrop cutscene automatically, and I popped it in my mouth as usual. Except when it finished, I still had the stardrop, and my iridium hoe is gone. Seems doing that causes you to eat whatever item you have selected instead of the stardrop, and in this case I ate my Iridium Hoe.

                  Also, going to select the stardrop afterwards caused a second cutscene, and even more energy added, so now I have 542 energy instead of the 508 before.
