There are some changes we’re hoping to implement in Patch 5.2 regarding Sunsong Ranch. Things we’re considering are ways to lure birds away, creating a resting zone, and perhaps a way to have your friends around (NPCs you’ve gained rep with) giving you tasks to do to gain nice perks. Nothing is guaranteed but those are just some of possibilities currently on the table.
I would like to see Dog chase rodents away in the disturbed soil.
The scarecrow should be keeping the birds away, so maybe offer an upgrade to that?
Would be nice to see a way to buy some fertilizer to get more yield out of the crops.
