Picture this: You're on your farm run, frolicking through the grass, the wind in your hair the smell, WHAT'S THAT SMELL? COMPOST?! EWWW.

I'd like to suggest that it would be a nice QOL update if the farming patches would change to a darker color when compost is used. The amount of times I've planted expensive herbs only to yield three Torstols is too many to count. I'm not that great at counting to begin with, but that's besides the point!

I remember listening in during one of the Q&As a few weeks ago regarding this and one of the mods said it's not possible due to coding reasons because of the amount of different composts there are and various stages a plant goes through.

My suggestion to that is to simply make the dirt in the plant a darker brown color when ANY compost is used.

The reason the other suggestion wasn't possible is because they wanted to have different colors for no compost, compost, super compost, and ultra compost.

By making the patch darker when using ANY level of compost would allow farmers to clearly depict whether or not they've applied compost to their patch. It would also not break the coding limits that one of the mods mentioned during the Q&A, plus it would be less dev time needed since it's one extra color added.

I've spoken to quite a few people during my farm runs and they all agree this would be a great addition.

Thank you,

First of all, you can add compost after you've planted the seed, i've done it before. Secondly, you can pay the leprechaun to automatically apply compost for you, for a fee. We also can check whether or not a patch has been compost-ed by inspecting it.

So why would we need this?

That is fairly new actually and only was introduced at some point last year. Before that you had messed up when you planted before using compost.
