Post My Real Farm
Mine and family real farm in Sinai.

Stronghold was one of the most games which made me love farming.

Also managing orchards, cow and wheat farms helped me in managing this real farm; and I think I'm on the right track of being successful.

We are producing white beans, manderine and fish; and will plant mango, potatoes and onions in the coming weeks and months. We already ate some of the beans, after harvesting it, and it was delicious.

That's amazing, but I'm wondering how farming in SK taught you how to farm better...

The most important factor and the first basic of a farm are its workers; so having a good worker and taking care of him/her decides if your harvest is going to be fruitful or not.

We experienced planting beans, but because we didn't monitor them when seeding... the harvest dwindled to half of the supposed amount.

So I decided to be present more frequent, watching workers do their job right and with conscience; which resulted in knowing the precise charges and cutting some unnecessary fees.

Because SH was one of the most accurate games in design of its aspects, it helped make me monitor workers like I did when playing SH, by watching farmers making and collecting food.

It may look a simple concept, but it's just like that in real life. Seeding, growing and harvesting real plants instead of animated graphics.

That's really interesting. I didn't think of it that way. Thanks for sharing your experiences. ^_^

Yes, they are. Two-sided drip irrigation pipes/lines. That's a one feature I wished to be included in SH games for so long for more realistic game-play: Irrigation; and which always made me wonder how on earth are the food plantations are growing without a drop of water!?

A very simple way was, to make it a bit more realistic, by making the well boy deliver buckets of water to every farm.

Also, black plastic cover around every tree is to prevent over-growth and cancer-infected branches... to transfer all the nutritious manure to the top, therefore to make it a healthy and productive tree.

The good part is that I am always imagining I'm playing a real-life SH or other farm-games I played and loved; which make managing this farm really fun and entertaining :) .

The game does have weather effects. Some being storms, suppose the water for crops in the game might come from that ;)
