The weather is an essential part of your day in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. It can decide if you need to water crops, or if you can trigger a certain event that’s weather-specific, or if you can even go outside at all.
The chance of a specific weather pattern occurring is dependent on the season, and each day’s weather is chosen by RNG the day before.
For example, the weather for Spring 19th is determined starting on Spring 18th.
Save scumming is a common method used to manipulate the game so you can repeatedly re-load the game and reset the RNG. This allows you to choose your desired weather for the following day.
This guide will discuss how to save scum and maximize this exploit to get the weather pattern you want (and to avoid bad weather events).
How To Save Scum for Weather
To save scum properly, you’ll actually have to create your save file 2 days before the day you want to change the weather.
This is because the weather is decided the morning of the previous day, and you can check this on your TV’s Weather Channel.
So for example:
If you want it to rain on Summer 7th, you’ll have to save your game the night of Summer 5th.
Then go to sleep and wake up the next morning on Summer 6th, but don’t save on that date yet.
The game will randomly decide the weather pattern for the next day when you wake up on Summer 6th. So when you wake up you’ll want to go check the TV and see if it says that tomorrow’s weather matches what you want – using our example, we want to see that it’s going to rain on Summer 7th.
If you don’t get the result you want on the first try, you can keep re-loading your previous save and going back to Summer 5th, sleep, and then reload the next day.
This is purely RNG-based, so you might need to do a couple of resets to get the exact weather you want.
You can use this hack to avoid typhoons in the Summer and to avoid snowstorms in Winter.
