I'm not sure what you mean. Are you running out of water in the middle of watering?

Otherwise refilling doesn't make much sense, and if that's the case watering's more broken than I thought... :lol:

In my case as annoying as it is it'd be easier to go back over than do that. especially in the basement given I'm using liquid fertilizer.


Sorry, my post wasn't clear. What I meant to ask was, I have a 1x2 right now so I can't test this myself, but are the issues that people are complaining about with 5x5 not watering evenly fixable by refilling your watering can before you water every time? It seems like the only reason it wouldn't water evenly is because the watering can is not full enough to water the whole area.


Not true, I can have a full can ((fully upgraded capacity too)) and my first water can do this. It doesn't even always do it. It doesn't run out, it just doesn't work right.

The can has no problem watering and letting you know when it runs out, even when it's not done.

I have to water things that should have been watered sometimes, and I surely am not filling the can in between. It's not lack of water, at least in my case, for sure.

Zoom out map, approach from the bottom, be finicky with my positioning, and make sure the outline is good before holding the A button worked for me. I found that's the only way that let me be precise with watering with the 1x3 and 3x3 upgrades. The 5x5 pre-watering outline can't all be seen at once, but it waters so quickly that it doesn't really matter either.

I have very few complaints about this game, but the watering can and its dynamic watering area is one of them. WHY they give you upgrades like 1x2 and so on and don't have them actually LOCKED to that configuration.....aaaaarrrrggggghhhh.


I have the 5x5 now, and it's still the same thing...only the area is large enough that even zoomed all the way out, you can easily not notice that one corner didn't get watered. GAAAAH.

I only just upgraded my can to 1x2 recently and that one is extremely wonky too. I will stand next to my field, in the middle of a side not a corner. My MC is facing straight in the direction I want it to go. But sometimes (often!) for absolutely no apparent reason it will water sideways instead - like, the field immediately in front of my MC and then one to the SIDE, instead of the second one in front of the MC in a straight line. Sometimes I spend more time trying to line up a shot than it would've taken to just water each plot individually. *sigh*

I line up the top or bottom middle, same way each time, yet sometimes it works right and sometimes it doesn't. I'm not getting consistent results, and that's the worst part.

I'm... Not really sure what would cause this, as this is the first game I've had these issues but... Given this is the first one I've had these issues I'm extra not happy with this. It feels finicky and wonky and... IDK maybe I'm being whiny and ungrateful and picky or w/e but I feel like that's a little more frustrating in newer, more 'polished' games. And going backwards in the tool feels like defeat.

Honestly, the old run and water of the previous SoS was better, if only for the fact that there weren't issues like this. I feel like there's something with the new grid/crop system of SoS that doesn't play well with this kind of tool upgrading.

I stand in the the far left or right corner and face my gal so she is looking diagonally across the 3x3 area. Unless I have a weird shape it works out pretty well.

Still trying to figure out my 3x3 too but I use the Super water so it's easy to make. May be wasting but watevs. Saves time and energy, imo.

3x3 worked fine with me.
My nightmare was the 3x1 area, I wanted to water a straight line and it would bend for no reason and water an "L" shape.

5x5 is where they joy is truly at tho, the new watering/rain animation is lovely, and you can go to the middle of the field and just water everything without worries.

Seems a little unfortunate. :/
Thanks for the input though, don't mistake my disappointment for blame to you in any way or something.

It's just... Confusing. Which is rather unfortunate since I was under the impression there weren't little tricky issues like this and not something I'm a big fan of or needing currently.

I know it probably a minor thing, but I really hate having to worry about things like this. What makes it worse is the inability to see what's being watered/the area because how the camera is. I'm not trying to troll, or start anything, or make a game vs game statement or this game suck one or whatever. This is something STV dealt with a little better, and I'm a little disappointed now to know my tools are going to be a wonky pain in my « Mr.Gourmet's hat ».

I had the horizontal 3 x 3 watering can, I noticed that if I stood on the line that separated the areas I tilled then it watered them horizontally like I wanted but if I was even a little off then it would water like a ninety degree angle. It is pretty wonky, I'm still trying to get used to the one I have now x.x

That's actually less convenient for me. :lol:

And the kicker is I'm lining up the same and what doesn't get watered doesn't add up. The middle and sides get watered for the first 2 rows but not the last. If it were line up issues wouldn't all the sides be missed and every time? And it fully water or not at all? That's what confuses me, especially the last part because if the water is hitting it and fully getting other parts why is it not fully getting everything it hits?

Seems kinda off and wonky and very unfortunate in that regard to me.
