As of Season's Greetings (2019-08-21) Haven is having seasons.


Season durations: (RT: RealTime)

  • Summer: ~30 days(RT).
  • Fall: ~10 days(RT). (autumn)
  • Winter: ~10 days(RT).
  • Spring: ~10 days(RT).

So a one year Haven cycle takes ~60 days(RT), or ~2 months(RT).


Initial seasons implementation is mostly graphical, but there are some mechanical changes.

  • Herbs have seasonality. ...(?) (seems they do not spawn on snow covered ground/terrain, but do spawn (in winter) on terrain cleared of snow)
  • Most small animals have seasonality. (See Creature Seasonality Table below. Still mainly empty though)
  • Some large animals have seasonality. (same)
  • Crops ...(?)
  • Trees will lose their fruits and seeds in winter, and only regain them again during the summer.
    • Ergo: No fruits or seeds on trees for ~20 realtime days.
  • Rivers, and some ocean tiles, will gradual freeze over during winter.


Additional other seasonal stuff:

Creature Seasonality Table

  • Until a better idea comes along, this Creature Seasonality Table at least allows for some initial collection of some Creature Seasonality data.
  • Potential Creature Seasonality data correctness issue: When a particular creature is given seasonality later on in future patches its kinda tricky to flush them out (when its not included in the patch notes) ... except by starting with a new fresh and empty table.
  • Input data:
    • ...: No data available.
    • Y: Spotted. - The easy one.
    • N: Confirmed. - Technically this one relies on actual confirmation (dev's or other hard data), the next best thing would be based on statistical data (which is a bit problematic in my view, have to think about that some more).
    • -: Assumed to have no seasonality based on logical elimination (guessing).
      • Input options will needs some additional re-thinking. As creature seasonality is not just a bool(on/off) feature, but also a changed probability feature.
