The Windmills

Zephyr Town has an ample amount of wind, so the town has several windmills around the area. The windmills are used for making various items but they are not functioning correctly when you begin your game. Isaac and Wilbur will work on repairing the windmills. When each one is complete, Isaac will stop by your house in the morning and let you know.

Using A Windmill

The fermenting windmill

Each windmill is made of several components. At the top of the staircase is where you can put your ingredients to be processed, and to the left of that is a Wonderful stone holder. At the bottom of the staircase is the timer and the receptacle for the finished products. The windmills have specific recipes you can make with each one of them, including some higher level recipes that require you to enhance the windmill with the Purple Wonderful.

To use a windmill, press B at the ingredient input area, select and confirm the recipe you want to make (if you have the appropriate ingredients), and the merely wait for the necessary time to pass for it to turn into a new product. When the recipe has been processed, you will receive a popup alert on your top screen regardless of where you are in the game.

The windmills do have limits. You can only have six types of items being processed by a single windmill as well as a maximum stack of ten of a specific item. For example, you can put in six stacks of Egg + Oil to make Mayonnaise, but you will have to wait until your six stacks of Mayonnaise are finished processing before you can make a new recipe.

You can modify the windmills by attaching Wonderful Stones.

The Process Time

The speed of which recipes are processed in the windmills is 1) determined by the wind speed of the day, 2) whether you have blown into your DS microphone to turn the windmill blades, and 3) if you have a Blue Wonderful attached to the windmill. The weaker the wind is, the longer it will take to process the items.

  1. The wind is not something you can really control. Every day, the weather icon in the lower-right corner of your top screen will tell you what your wind strength is. One blue triangle is the weakest, and a hurricane or snowstorm is the strongest. You can not have a day with no wind.
  2. If you want to decrease the processing time, you can blow on your DS microphone. Stand in front of the windmill (in game) and then strongly blow on your DS microphone. When you've changed the speed at which the blades move, the game will chime and you can stop blowing. You can do this once a day for each windmill.
  3. The Wonderful stones will modify the windmills, and the Blue Wonderful will decrease the time required for processing recipes. It randomly appears at Diego's shop at the bazaar during Fall and Winter for 10,000 G. Diego's shop unlocks after you have expanded the bazaar to 75%.

Each modifier you add (1, 2, or 3) will positively decrease the time needed to finish the item. The most you can decrease the processing time is by 84%.

  Light Wind Medium Wind Strong Wind Storm
Do nothing 0% change (x 1) 33% decrease (x .66) 50% decrease (x .5) 66% decrease (x .33)

Blow on the DS mic
and have a Blue Wonderful
66% decrease (x .33) 75% decrease (x .25) 80% decrease (x .20) 84% decrease (x .16)

For example, it will take one hour (60 minutes) to make a single Mayonnaise at the weakest speed of wind using the windmill on your farm. If you have different modifiers included, the earliest you can get Mayonnaise is in about 10 minutes.

  Light Wind Medium Wind Strong Wind Storm
Do nothing 60 min 40 min 30 min 20 min
Blow on the DS mic 40 min 30 min 20 min 15 min
Blue Wonderful 30 min 20 min 15 min 12 min
Blow on the DS mic
and have a Blue Wonderful
20 min 15 min 12 min ~10 min

If you are processing a stack of items, such as 10 Mayonnaise, then each individual item's time will compile together to give you an overall processing time. A stack of 10 Mayonnaise on a super windy day (3 blue marks) will take a total of 4 and a half hours to process before you can collect it from the windmill. If you had put the Egg + Oil in one at a time, then it would only take 20 minutes for each Mayonnaise to finish.

Wonderful Stones

To enhance your windmills, you can attach Wonderful Stones to them. You can't purchase these stones until you have upgraded the bazaar to 75%. Diego will open up his shop and randomly have a Wonderful Stone for sale for 10,000 G. You can only buy 1 stone of each color; keep the unused one in your storage box.

Each windmill can hold one Wonderful Stone at a time. Walk up to the stone holder and then press B to select the Wonderful Stone from your rucksack. You can only attach Wonderfuls when the windmill is not processing anything, since the type of stone you attach will affect what is processed.

There isn't an Indigo Wonderful in Grand Bazaar.
