maybe the best way is to let us have the auto-shoppers in the games then? (i have the game 'innocent life: a sci-fi harvest moon' and in that one, you can unlock a remote shopper. each one has only one type of crop but its available 24-7) also, maybe some games should add a slider to the seasons? like in the sims. in the sims2 you could set the avarage life span longer in each stage (i allways set baby to as short as it would let me lol, but made toddler and child longer than teen because of how many life skills you could teach and how long it took to potty and walk train toddlers in sims games) later when the seasons packs arrived you could not only set what seasons were alowed per area, but also how long each season was. maybe we could get a slider (mod perhaps?) to make the seasons move to 2, 3 or even epic months at a time. i would love to see 2-3 months per season. but then the calander would be wrong would'nt it?
