This feature is currently in development.
Every three months, new craftable items, mutant animals, decorations, and special events become available, reflecting the changing seasons and offering players new challenges and opportunities.
Overall, the seasonal game mechanic adds depth and variety to Sunflower Land, encouraging players to stay engaged and invested in their virtual farm all year round.
This document is your guide to preparing for seasons and what to expect.
At the start of each season, a range of new items are introduced to the game:
- Limited edition Blacksmith Items that enhance farming abilities
- Limited edition Seasonal Decorations
- Mutant Animals
- Rare Treasures
A season can also introduce the following:
- Surprise seasonal events and competitions
- Seasonal Crops
Every season, players have the chance to complete various challenges and quests, which will reward them with a free seasonal tickets. For instance, during the Solar Flare seasons players will be able to earn a Solar Flare Ticket.
Seasonal Tickets are free bonus items that are given to players upon completion of challenges.
- 1.Players will be able to receive 10 Seasonal Tickets every time they complete a Grub Shop Order.
- 2.Players will be able to receive 1 Bonus Seasonal Ticket with each Daily Reward
95% of seasonal tickets will come from the above in-game challenges.
A player can also discover a Seasonal Ticket by planting crops each day. This is weighted based on the time a crop takes to grow. Over the long run of a season, players planting crops will attain a similar or equal amount of tickets through farming.
Players may also have the chance during special events to earn bonus tickets.
Every season will have lots of rare items for players to choose from. You must be strategic in how you allocate your free Seasonal tickets. Do you risk it and go for 2 rare items, do you try to collect 6-7 mid tier items or do you sell your tickets for SFL?
This creates a fun emergent behaviour where players need to consider desires of the community and plan accordingly.
Each season will have a range of items that cater for different player types. A new player would likely go for a high supply decoration, whereas an OG player would go for the high-end items.
Seasonal tickets introduces a game of risk where you must strategically plan what items you want to strive for and predict what items other players will try to get.
Each season will have multiple items available at the Blacksmith with limited supply.
Once you collect the required ingredients (resources + Seasonal tickets) you can craft an item. This is on a first come first serve basis. Once the supply has run out, the item is no longer available
Seasonal items are removed from the Blacksmith at the end of the season.
You can also visit the Garbage Collector NPC and swap your Seasonal Tickets for SFL.
Yes, the team will publish the available items in a season ahead of time so you can plan and strategies accordingly. However, the team reserves the right to announce additional surprise or seasonal events.
Cooking food for the Grub Shop requires a range of diverse resources and buildings.
It naturally favours players who have set up a efficient farm, gathering not only crops but also animal produce required for different recipes.
New players can get started almost immediately and collect 20-30 seasonal tickets each week. Older players are also rewarded for their efforts as they complete every order in the shop.
Players will still need to gather a significant amount of resources to craft Blacksmith items.
Seasonal tickets does not aim to replace the required resources, it is a bonus mechanism.
Players must still grind and burn a significant amount of resources to craft an item.
Seasonal tickets have utility during the active season. Do not expect future utility to to come once the season has ended
